Tools For Staying Fit

Busy Mom’s Survival Guide Podcast Episode 069.
I talk a lot on my blog and podcast about how valuable it is for busy moms to exercise and stay fit.   But it’s not important so that we can look good (that’s just a side benefit).  It’s important so that we can feel good and so that we can have the energy and stamina we need to thrive in our busy lives as we take care of our family.

During this week’s episode, Brett joins me as we talk about some of the tools that we use to stay fit, as well as our current exercise program.

I’ve always worked very hard to teach my daughter during her teenage years that it is important to exercise and stay fit.  But I don’t want her to ever feel that it is all about her outward appearance.  It is important to stay fit so that she is healthy, not so that she can look good in a bikini (if she ever chose to wear one).

I’d love to hear what types of exercises you do to stay fit or if that is one of your current struggles.

    Love this pod cast. Staying fit is very important health wise. It is not about body image…but just feeling good.

    Very interesting Podcast! I would love to try a FitBit!! I do not wake up for anything! I sleep through my alarm for the first 5 times. I have to set my alarm about 30 minutes before I actually wake up! PJ you and I sound the same when it comes to waking up, and if it works for you maybe it will for me too! Haha!

    Hi PJ! I listened to this podcast in April when you first shared it and keep thinking about it … still! :) I am wanting to buy a treadmill to have in our basement, but feel a little overwhelmed with all the choices. I am just curious what treadmill you have and if you’ve been really pleased with it. I love the thought of “multi-tasking” – mostly catching up on reading things that don’t get read otherwise. THANKS!!

      Sorry for the delay in answering, Monique! We’ve had company for 2 weeks straight and I’ve fallen behind. I’m actually on my treadmill right now! Mine is a Pro-Form 730CS and I love it. It is at least 15 years old and I’ve never had a problem with it. My advice is not to stress about all the choices. Set a budget and get the best one in that budget.

      Mine has “programs” that you can run. But I never use them. If you can control the speed and control the incline, that’s all you need. Mine can also take your pulse rate, but that feature is not necessary and it is really hard to get an accurate reading while walking. If you stop, it’s pretty accurate, but I just judge my heart rate by how hard it is for me to talk.

      Hope that helps!
