Time flies when you have a toddler, work part time, your partner works full time, you are planning a huge move and planning renovations on your new space. Since exercise is what keeps me sane it couldn’t be cut out of my day completely just done in a whole new way.

I started using nap time (formally my workout and me time) to pack, make calls and send time sensitive emails. Workouts had to be even more creative than before.

I started using my son’s morning park time to burn off some of my own pent up energy and reduce my stress. Squats, lunges, push-ups, curl-ups, tricep dips, back raises, chin-ups, jacks and burpees became the new regime. No equipment necessary and enough to get my heart rate up while still allowing me to monitor my babe. The best part is that my little guy (nearly 2) is now randomly doing burpees. I’m sure it has something to do with the reaction from my partner and I. 🙂 A perfect example of how closely our wee ones pay attention to us and mimic our every move.

Getting creative with your workouts during bouts of high stress and limited time is very important – especially if you hope to remain sane.

What have you done to help keep yourself in check physically during a move?
