I downloaded the My Fitness Pal android app a few weeks ago. You type in your current weight and your weight goal and it gives you a number of daily calorie intake. You can record everything you eat and exercises through out the day. This is a great app and what’s best is it’s FREE!
I tried yoga for the first time yesterday, and man is it hard!! Even doing a couple beginner poses, you need to have a lot of arm and leg strength. If you’re like me and the only time you have to workout is when your kids take a nap, then it can be hard to get in even 10 minutes of exercise. Because I don’t know about you, but I’d rather relax and enjoy the peace and quiet when my kids are napping! I tried it while my kids were awake (BIG MISTAKE!) They kept pressing keys on the computer, pausing the video, and lastly dropping the computer on the floor!
But I have found there’s a couple little things you can slip in through out the day. For instance, when your cooking lunch or dinner… Why not do a couple of lunges or squats while you’re waiting for something to boil or bake? Maybe even a yoga pose or two, if you have enough room in your kitchen. Another thing I do a couple times a week is play catch or soccer with my 2 year old. Can u believe playing soccer even casually for 20-30 minutes you burn 195 calories?! I love doing this because not only am I burning calories but I’m playing and spending quality time with my daughter.
Hopefully these little tips can help you out as well!
