Last week I had a huge wake up call. Although I was very good at knowing what I needed to do, I totally was not even implementing these things in my life. So as I am getting back on the health wagon, I am super excited to share all my health tips so you can stay on track with me. So here are 5 tips to stay healthy as a stay at home mom.
- MEAL PREP
If you are like me, I know you don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen every single day. So maybe choosing one day out of the week and spending a little extra time to meal prep can help with that. As well, as making it easy to stay on point. Rather than being so hungry, not having time to cook and ending up eating a hamburguer from a drive thru.
2. GO GROCERY SHOPPING ALONE
Now, I don’t have big children but I have seen my sisters struggle with this, so I included this tip for you. I know it is super hard to say no to our kids and most of the time what our kids want is a bag of hot cheetos and cookies. Not very healthy. By going grocery shopping alone, it is easier to make healthier choices when it comes to the food and snacks you will have a around the house.
3. DON’T GO SHOPPING WHEN YOU ARE HUNGRY
When we go shopping while being hungry we tend to just really want to put anything in our mouth. Make sure you eat before going shopping for better decision making.
4. HAVE HEALTHY SNACK HANGING AROUND THE HOUSE
Having things on hand and easy for us to just reach out, will make it much easier to snack on healthy food. Snacking is important to keep our metabolism going and feeling energized through the day. Also having easy access to water can help stay hydrated. I know I struggle with that.
5. GET A GYM MEMBERSHIP WITH CHILDCARE
No excuses! If you plan to workout at home, you might end up with a crying baby asking for a bottle, a school boy asking for help with homework, etc. By (1) putting some skin ($$) on it, you might be pushed to actually make it to the gym and (2) having childcare will help you stay concentrated and actually finish at least a good 20 – 30 minutes of workout.
