2. I only work out when it’s most convenient for me.
I’ve read different suggestions on when it’s supposedly the best time of day to work out, like early in the morning. But not only am I not a morning person, I’m exhausted from taking care of toddlers all day long (and night). I’m tired. This phase of life with toddlers is not physically easy!
So in order for me to commit, I need to work out when it’s most convenient for me, which is late morning or after the kids have gone to bed. Work out when you can! Not when you think you should, and it’ll be easier to stick with it.
3. Only work out where it’s easiest for me.
I tried getting a gym membership, but at the time, getting out of the house with two toddlers was more overwhelming than working out itself. So I never went. I decided I just needed to do what was easiest for me, and that meant exercising at home.
I like to find my workout videos on YouTube. I’ll just search “30 minute workouts for women” and tons of videos come up. I also love Tracy Anderson, that woman can work you out! There are so many videos on YouTube with professional yogis and fitness instructors who share 10, 15, and 30 minute videos, even hour long videos. And lots of zumba videos too! Whatever kind of mood you’re in, you can find a fitness video on YouTube for it.
If you have/had toddlers, how did you find time to exercise?
