Mommy and Me working out together

    Working out

Working out with a very active 8 month old is tough. I try to include him in every activity. Whether its me cleaning telling him how to do it or cooking having him in his high chair watching. I make sure he knows what is going on. It’s a great learning experience for them even at such a young age. It also helps that he wants to be included and learn.

Trying to work out when I never did even before I had him plus keeping an eye on him was just giving me an excuse not to. I had to find a way to include him in my work out. Didn’t help he kept trying to go under my feet. I didn’t want him to get injured nor have me fall.

After scouring YouTube (great place to find free workout videos) I found some mommy and me workouts so was able to include him. Instead of having to use weights I just used him. He had fun doing what I was doing and I got a great workout. I can honestly say I have never sweated so much before.

My son weighs 23lbs 7oz. So having to hold him was definitely kicking me into fat burning heart rate zone. I have a fit bit blaze thanks to my baby brother and his girlfriend (birthday present) so it tells me all my stats such as heart rate, time, calories, and what zone I am in. It is most definitely a great workout tool. I just suggest when working out with your little one invest in a baby carrier if you don’t already own one. As it will help you get better range of motion if not having to hold your little one.
