How to stay fit during the 6 weeks holidays!
The kids are off school for a whole six weeks and you feel like your time isn’t your own anymore and you have fallen out of routine. Sound familiar? DON’T PANIC!! I know you have worked hard but with a few of these simple tips to follow, you can ensure that you stay on track and don’t undo the progress that you have made!
Set yourself a goal
You may be out of routine but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a clear and concise goal to work towards. Not only will this give you something to focus on but you are more likely to achieve a set goal than to just vaguely establishing a routine.
This can be something as simple as;
- Attending the gym twice a week
- Attending a class or joining a local bootcamp or fitness weekend,
- Going out for a long walk with the family more often
- Not indulging on the kids snacks!
Spend time in the kitchen
This may seem a boring one but think about it, when was the last time you weren’t rushing in from work, grabbing something quick to feed yourself and the family or bunging something in the microwave?
Take the time you have to fall in love with cooking again and batch cook to make it easy for yourself on your busier days. You can even get the kids involved!! Most kids love to cook, it’s hands on, it’s messy and there’s plenty of room for creativity, not to mention a sense of achievement at the end. Teach your kids this life skill and you really will set them up for life, combine it with making their meal and you’ve set them up for the day too (https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/top-10-tips-cooking-kids)
Involve the Family
Just as you might involve the whole family by cooking healthier meals for everyone, you can also get them excited about working out. With the kids off school it can be hard to find time to workout, so try to find fun activities that gets everyone out the house and active together. Knowing how to stay fit during the holidays is always going to be challenging but try going on bike rides or hikes, followed by a picnic or even take the whole family swimming. The options are endless! (https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/family/school-holiday-deals/)
Get your workout done early morning
The kids are off school so they will want that lie in probably just as much as you do but take that quiet time to get your workout done. Whether it be outdoors or a home workout to set you up for the day at least you can use this alone time without the kids shouting for your attention or trying to escape whilst you’re doing your downward dog.
