Exercise Tips for Moms

Pin It Now! My monthly post is up at Fit Moms Fit Kids. Here is a teaser . . .

Totally Desperate Mom is back at you once again with some simple exercise tips. And please remember that exercise is about more than loosing weight, or not getting fat, or trying to get a certain body. Exercise is about health. Health everywhere: heart, bones, circulation, lungs, mental health, eyeballs. Okay, maybe eyeballs are a stretch, but I am sure there is a study somewhere that proves the eyeballs-and-exercise correlation.

If exercise is about health, then that means it is even for the skinny desperate mamas.

And mamas, just because you may be in a stage where you cannot exercise 3-5 times weekly, do at least 30 minutes of cardio, and all those other “you musts to make it worth it” . . . do something! Something is better than nothing. Get moving.

Here are some tips taken from my book Totally Desperate Mom: Keepin' it Real in the Motherhood:

*Take a dance class. If you don’t have coordination, then maybe you can just salsa dance for your husband. I bet he’d like that.

That's the same face I make when I think about diet and excercise.
