Fitness Tips For Super Moms

Posted by: Harry | Comments (0)

We all know how difficult it is to stay in shape and find time for fitness- but most especially for women with babies or small kids. There’s the sleep-deprivation factor, the “I have a school project due tomorrow” factor, the “mom I’m hungry” factor, and 100’s of others that just zap any free time for mom’s these days.

So what are the fitness options for busy “super moms”?  The fact is, the more you can take of yourself and the better

you feel, the stronger you will be physically and emotionally to take on the day with the “little ones” and all of life’s challenges. Here are some quick, but effective exercise ideas – specifically designed for the busy Mom – to keep you strong and prevent future injuries that may occur with poor lifting biomechanics and poor posture.

The heavy weight of not just the baby, but also all the fun gadgets you’re expected to lug around can definitely take a toll on your back. It’s no surprise that our bodies need a little help to get through the day. Keeping active and fit cannot only be good for your body but can also help you spend some quality time with your kids.

Here are some ideas:

1. If you have a young baby, include him or her in your exercise routine. For example, lay your baby on a towel on the floor. Do assisted push-ups and every time you go down, give your baby a kiss. He os she will love the attention and being so close to “mommy”.

2. Participate in a mini “obstacle course” in your backyard or local playground with your kids.

3. Once your kids are old enough, have them accompany you on a bike ride in a safe location.

4. Do relay races with your kids and a few of their friends.

5. For younger babies, seat them in a stroller and go for a walk (or a jog if you have a jogging stroller).

6. Jump rope, play ball, or “hide-and-seek” with your kids in the park.

Now no one said being a mom is easy, on the contrary, I think it’s one of the tougher jobs out there. It’s being on call 24 hours a day, so I understand that it’s often hard finding time to yourself. But remember, taking care of your health will help you be a better mother to your kids. You will have more energy and feel better all around and able to better enjoy your time with them.

Fitness is a state of the human body that allows it to function up to its full potential. It is the ability to do regular jobs

without any strain, while being alert and energetic enough to endure any stressful activities. It is basically a condition wherein, all the major parts of the body, heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, bones and muscles are in proper working condition. There are four aspects related to physical fitness: cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength, and muscular endurance and flexibility.

Fitness programs are the path to having a healthy body. They are the perfect way to incorporate exercise into the daily routine. Fitness programs, when followed religiously, are a remarkable way to counter several diseases, even in old age. Fitness programs need a lot of commitment and hard work. There are several stages in incorporating a fitness program into your daily routine.

The first thing is to check your present health condition to determine what kind of a program would suit you. This requires a basic health check up of blood pressure, diabetes-check, and a full work over for any suspected diseases, and past injuries. Also, consider  your family history. Are you prone to heart attacks, strokes, arthritis, and other ailments?

Another major aspect in physical fitness is the body’s composition, which indicates the makeup of the body in terms of the ratio of lean mass to fat mass. Lean mass is comprised of muscle, bone, vital tissue and organs. Good fitness programs take all these physical conditions of the person into account. The ideal exercise regime for a person will suit his/her body type. This is also contingent upon one’s objective be it weight loss, physical strength, or something else.

Fitness programs are composed of several kinds of activities such as: aerobics, aquatic exercises, golf, walking, skipping, jogging, swimming, bicycling, running, skiing, or playing sports like tennis and  squash.
The program should be chosen to suit your fitness level. It should be enjoyable, with realistic goals, and should fit well with your lifestyle. Some people may not see immediate results. Depending on the program as well as their body type results may vary. Patience is very important.

Another way to make things more interesting is changing upwhat type of exercise you do. You can opt for an instructor for special kinds of fitness programs or for group fitness programs. People with disabilities need to follow fitness programs consistently as well and will see a huge improvement in all aspects of life.

There are many professional fitness centers that have sophisticated equipment to suit all kinds of people and fitness needs. These centers have professionals and medical specialists who would be able to offer advice about the best kind of fitness program to take up. They provide customized workout routines, nutrition plans, personal trainers, and expert guidance to make the results last.

The important thing is to make the decision to become more physically fit and get to it right away.  Don’t let another day go by living below your full potential.

Now, all of you know by now that I am quite the exercise enthusiast, to say the least. But I did want to take an opportunity to remind everyone that fitness excellence does not mean being excessively skinny, or starving yourself or exercising to the point where you are compromising your health in an effort to lose weight. These are not ways to achieve fitness excellence; rather they are signs of serious conditions such as body dysmorphia or eating disorders such as “anorexia nervosa” and bulimia, among others.

In our society, the perceived perfect image of women, especially, falls right in line with the slenderness of girls 10 to 12 years old. This unrealistic perception spawned by the supermodels seen today in ads for popular clothing and undergarment makers has caused many women to become obsessed with their own images. In our society, women are ten times more likely to develop eating disorders and compulsive exercise habits that can be life threatening and often do prove to be fatal, than men.

“Anorexia nervosa”, for example, is a life threatening disorder that occurs when a person eats very little food and

become obsessed about your weight even when you are already underweight. An anorexic person will often see themselves as being fat when they look at themselves in the mirror even though they appear very skinny to everyone else. People with this disorder often turn to laxatives and various diet aids such as fat burning pills to bring their weight down to dangerous levels.

“Bulimia” is another eating disorder that occurs when a person goes on an “eating binge”, and then immediately forces themselves to purge (vomit/ excrete) the food eaten so as not to store any calories from the food eaten. People suffering from bulimia will eat a large amount of food, even junk food, and then get it all back out by self-induced vomiting and laxative use. This practice can severely throw off your body’s nutrient and mineral balance in the blood and put a person’s health and life at risk.

“Compulsive overeating” followed by “compulsive over exercising” is a pattern that is not as dangerous as anorexia and bulimia but still can lead to both physical and psychological problems. This is a pattern in which you will eat a large amount of food followed up immediately by exercising excessively hard and for a long period of time. It is estimated that more than one out of three college female athletes may, at one time or another, develop an eating disorder. If you suffer from an eating disorder, seek medical help as soon as possible because if left untreated, these disorders can cause permanent health problems and even death.

Remember, part of “fitness excellence” is a balance between body and mind. By starving ourselves or over-exercising, we are doing both our minds and bodies more harm than good. Moderation, balance, and persistence are the key qualities of achieving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
