Exercise routine for busy moms-Round 2

I get bored if I do the same exercises over and over.  I have to switch it up at least monthly.  If not sooner.  If you remember I wrote this blog post last month.  Well after a month of doing that I got sick of those exercises and decided to try out another pin that I had pinned on my "Healthy Body" board.  The pin I used as inspiration can be found here.  I made modifications to it and this is what I ended up doing.

I did this routine 3 days a week.

30 jumping jacks
5 pushups
25 high knees
7 burpees
7 squats
10 pushups
7 squats
30 jumping jacks
1 minute wall sit
5 push ups
25 high knees
(Repeat 3 times)

I would time myself everyday to see how long I was exercising.  I did this because physicians say that in order to fight fatigue you need to get 150 minutes of exercise a week at a minimum.  Therefore if this routine took me about 15 minutes 3 days a week then I would need to walk 105 minutes sometime that week as well.  This worked well for me.  Again I walked with my daughter and we had bonding time and I got to get some exercise time in.

Now if you are a beginner I would recommend you only do this routine once through instead of 3 times.  Then if you are feeling like that is getting easier then do it twice.  Continue to add until you get to 5 times through.  I did not get there after a month of doing it.  I will get there though.  Just shoot for 150 minutes of activity a week though and you will notice a difference.

Good luck!  I know you can do it!

Check out this fun exercise routine for women.  It can even be done if you are a busy mom.
