Free At-Home Workouts to Keep you Fit

When you’re a busy mom, a career woman, or doing both, finding time to do things for yourself can be a task all its own. Getting up extra early, or making time at the end of the day to go to the gym is often the last thing you want to do. Even so, exercise and fitness is often the one thing that you really should be making time for. Developing an exercise habit has not only physical benefits, but mental benefits as well; and making it part of your daily routine can be a great way to get in some me time, before getting back to the daily grind.

Exercise is really important to me and I try and fit in at least 30 minutes of activity every day.  I love classes and I try and make it to a class as often as I can, but sometimes I just can’t find the time.  When I can’t make it to Orange Theory or a spin class, I am always hunting for great alternatives that I can do at home while the kids are napping or after they go to bed.

Also, when you’re as busy as I am, the drive to gym can be enough to talk yourself out of going all together. Not to mention the cost associated with a gym membership can be anywhere from $50-$150 a month! However, there’s no need to sacrifice physical fitness to save a buck; there are lots of ways to get in a great workout at home, without spending a dime. Take a look at some of these budget-friendly ideas for getting your sweat on!

Household Tools that will Save you Time!

Hardwood Floors iRobot Roomba

Some days it seems like there are just not enough hours for me to get everything done. Between meetings, appointments, play dates, and school, I’m constantly chauffeuring my kids from place to place. Add in work, maintaining the house, and my own personal obligations and there’s barely enough “me time” leftover to relax.

You can’t buy time, but over the years I’ve found some products that come pretty close! Time I’m not spending mopping the floors or slaving over dinner is quality time I can spend with my family. So here I give you the gift of time, by sharing some of my favorite products that lessen the workload around the house. I think you’ll thank me!

Roomba

I’m sure that many of you are familiar with the Roomba. If not, it’s a self-operating vacuum that will completely change your life. With the push of a button the Roomba will vacuum an entire floor with absolutely no effort. You can even program it to run when you’re not home so you can return to a freshly vacuumed house. If you have pets that shed, the Roomba is a total game changer. While there are a number of models, you can get your own personal sweeping service for as little as $250. A bit of an investment, you’ll save hours vacuuming; you can use that extra time to be a little extra messy with the kiddos. I have the Roomba and run it every day at least once! It has been a complete game changer for me and I cannot recommend it enough!

Bold Stripes {What I’m Wearing Wednesday}

Dress, Sunglasses (Old Tory Burch), Earrings, Shoes

Another Red Dress Boutique dress for the win! I have been dying over all of the cute dresses I have been finding there and all for less than $100! These stripes are so cute and I LOVE the high neckline. I can’t wait to see what I snag for the fall!

I wore this dress in Destin and it was perfect for spending the day drinking beers on the beach and looking for dolphins while the kids ate crab legs and played on the park.
