As I am sure most of you know, it is half-term. The kids are off school and for the next 7 days it is going to be all about keeping the kids entertained and busy whilst you also have to continue on with all the other day to day things of work, social stuff, and all the other bits and bobs that go with being a mum.
Some of you may have plans to go away, some may have sorted child care whilst you are at work, but I am pretty sure what will be slipping this week will be the time you commit to getting to the gym. It is often one of the first things to go when we have other priorities, but we want to help make sure it doesn’t have to be. We want to provide you with a simple home workout that you can do in 20 minutes.
This will help make sure you keep on top of your fitness levels and by keeping on top of our exercise habit, it helps us stay on top of our nutrition habits also. So give this home workout a try this week and keep your health and fitness in tip top shape, even if you can’t make it to the gym.
