Don’t give up on your goals. Instead, find ways to work it into your daily routine. Here are 10 tips to fit in fitness while doing the things that are already on your to-do list.

Are you struggling with your fitness goals this year? Here are 10 tips to fit in fitness while doing the things that are already on your to-do list.

Brushing Your Teeth

There are a number of easy exercises you can do while you brush your teeth. 2 of my favorite ones are wall sits and stepping in place. While this won’t make you thin overnight, it will add 2 more minutes of activity to your day.

During Commercials

Doing some sort of exercise during commercial breaks of your favorite shows is an excellent way to fit in fitness. Jumping jacks and crunches are popular for this but I prefer plank. It is an excellent core workout that also doesn’t make a lot of noise (in case you watch TV after the kiddos go to bed like me). If you are more of a Netflix binge-watcher, change it up by doing 2 minutes of activity between episodes.

Shopping

Park your car in the very back of the lot when you go shopping or run errands. This is a great way to get in extra steps. If you want to up the ante, don’t get a cart in the parking lot. Instead carry your kids from the car to the door. Trust me that will turn your shopping trip into a full-blown workout.

 

Are you struggling with your fitness goals this year? Here are 10 tips to fit in fitness while doing the things that are already on your to-do list.

Making Dinner

Let’s face it: even with careful meal planning moms still spend of good chunk of our lives in the kitchen. The next time you’re stuck by the stove or hovering over the sink, step in place. It will help keep you energy level up and add some movement to your day.

Dance

Dance a lot. Like, dance any chance you get to shake your body. We dance down the hallway to naptime. I dance in the shower (although I don’t necessarily recommend this as I have fallen a few times… I just can help it). We hold random dance parties in the living room. Find times every day to dance even if it is only for a moment.

Bus Stops

Walk with your kid to the bus top and meet them at it after school. Even if the bus stop is only at the end of your driveway those are still extra steps.

Bonus Tip:

  • If your kid gets embarrassed about you being at the bus stop, one afternoon wait with a huge “Welcome” sign and cheer as he or she gets off of the bus. They won’t mind you just standing there so much.

Take the Steps

If you have a family room in your basement, hang out there. Then use the stairs to go to the restroom or get a drink of water. Even if you have a bathroom on the same level, take the steps to another one. It only takes an extra 2 minutes of your time and your body will thank you for it.

Toss Your Kids

Tossing your kids in the air is another excellent workout. Okay, so you don’t have to actually toss them in the air if that makes you nervous. Instead, try mimicking the motion but never letting go. The kids will still love it and you’ll be getting a varied shoulder press workout.

 

Are you struggling with your fitness goals this year? Here are 10 tips to fit in fitness while doing the things that are already on your to-do list.

Get on the Park Equipment

You can find tons of “playground workouts” on Pinterest but it doesn’t have to be that complicated. Your kids love it when you push them on the swings and it’s good for you, too. Spinning them on a merry-go-round is another easy way to fit in fitness. If you’re feeling ambitious, run with it and jump on like you did as a kid. Lastly, don’t forget to climb on the monkey bars. Show your kids how it’s done or lift them up and let them give it try.

Vacuum Twice a Day

Vacuuming is one of my favorite active chores to get up and moving. Instead of only doing this chore once a day, do it twice each day. That’s more steps each day and it has the added bonus of keeping your house extra clean.

 

Are you struggling with your fitness goals this year? Here are 10 tips to fit in fitness while doing the things that are already on your to-do list.

Choose one of these ideas or utilize all 10 tips to fit in fitness daily. You will find that the more your move each day, the more you will want to move. Want one more easy idea to get active? Play outside with your kids. They will love getting to run off that extra energy and will remember you making play with them a priority. My kids love being pushed around the yard in their Cozy Coupe. It’s an excellent workout for me that they have a blast with. Do you have tips to fit in fitness each day? I’d love to hear about them in the comments!

Paintings/Pictures – Your child’s artwork can totally be utilized as mantel décor. Throw it in a frame and display it proudly. Your kids will love being included in your decorating!

Toys – I collect unique and nerdy toys that absolutely deserved to be displayed. I don’t recommend using your kids’ toys because they will likely try to scale your fireplace to play with them.

Bookshelves

Bookshelves aren’t just for books! Even if your shelves are packed to the brim with books, like mine, you can add some pops of color. Add some colorful toys or trinkets in front of your books. For some reason our family has an excess of fun banks. These make fantastic decorative pieces.

Tip:

  • Don’t overload your shelves or they will look cluttered. Stick with 2-3 items per shelf grouped in a corner.

DIY Rainbow Notebook Valentines with Pencils

This post is sponsored by Oriental Trading. All projects, ideas, and opinions are my own.

Ever since seeing the Trolls movie I am even more obsessed with rainbows and glitter and so are my kids. It’s no surprise that when deciding on class Valentines this year my oldest immediately started brainstorming Trolls-themed ones. Trolls love glitter, rainbows, and scrapbooking. These DIY rainbow notebook Valentines have it all covered! The only way they could channel any more awesome Troll energy would be if they sang when you opened them. Alas, we haven’t quite mastered that one but maybe your child could sing while handing them out to classmates. Either way, kids will love receiving these Valentines and parents will love one less piece of candy coming home from school that day.

These notebooks are such a great quality! When you’re getting small notebooks you expect them to be a little flimsy and flexible. I was so surprised to find these notebooks had thick, almost canvas-like, covers that were incredibly sturdy. That makes them perfect for crafting with because they will hold up to glue, paint, and more.

If you’re looking for a fun local activity that fits your schedule all winter long, you can’t beat Sharpsounds Karaoke. It is the best karaoke in Northern Kentucky and has family-friendly options as well as options for an adults-only night out!

The Best Karaoke in Northern Kentucky

I was recently approached by Eventbrite to create a post about a local business that I love for winter activities (this is not a sponsored post). What a task! You know how much I love supporting local events from 5 Ways to Find Free Summer Activities. These are the same ways I find winter events to attend with my family. In fact, a local park had an amazing winter event in December that we had a blast at despite the freezing temperatures. However, if you’re looking for a fun local activity that fits your schedule all winter long, you can’t beat Sharpsounds Karaoke. It is the best karaoke in Northern Kentucky and has family-friendly options as well as options for an adults-only night out!

If you’re looking for a fun local activity that fits your schedule all winter long, you can’t beat Sharpsounds Karaoke. It is the best karaoke in Northern Kentucky and has family-friendly options as well as options for an adults-only night out!

Why it’s the Best Karaoke in Northern Kentucky

The Host

Roy Sharp, the host and owner, is amazing. His sound quality is unmatched because he personally adjusts the sound for each singer. He will make sure that you sound your best each time you sing. Even more so, he is very friendly and supportive so don’t worry if you’re nervous.

The Sound

He also takes pride in his equipment because he cares about his show and the wonderful singers who attend it. He has invested his time and money to find the best mixer, digital programs, and wireless mics to make your experience awesome. Not only is his equipment phenomenal but he knows how to use it meaning less technology delays and more fun. He also has a huge selection of songs from Disney movies to heavy metal. No matter what style you sing, you will find something at his show.

The Show

The shows are fair. Any karaoke-er knows that a lot of local shows play by the “good ‘ole boys” systems. That means that the host will bump you down the list if the host’s friends or family members stop in to only sing for an hour. This doesn’t happen at Roy’s shows. He keeps a list of the singers as they come and consistently keeps that order.

Does that mean that if you come in late that you go to the bottom of a list of 40 singers? It absolutely does not. He works that fairly, too, by weaving in new singers between existing singers who have been at the show longer. This helps ensure that everyone who comes to sing gets their opportunity.

 

If you’re looking for a fun local activity that fits your schedule all winter long, you can’t beat Sharpsounds Karaoke. It is the best karaoke in Northern Kentucky and has family-friendly options as well as options for an adults-only night out!

Family Friendly Option

Did you ever think you could find a family-friendly karaoke night that wasn’t on a cruise? Sharpsounds Karaoke has managed to do that too! On Wednesday and Thursday nights you can find him at the Green Lantern Café in Latonia, Kentucky. If you haven’t been to this venue since they re-did it, you are missing out.

The restaurant is non-smoking, serves up delicious food, filled with the local games on the big screens, and, of course, karaoke. Your kids can get in on the singing fun while you enjoy a family meal (until 10 pm EST). You also don’t have to worry about inappropriate songs coming on during dinner. Roy won’t let other singers sing songs (such as “Closer” by Nine Inch Nails) during the hours that children are allowed in the café.

 

If you’re looking for a fun local activity that fits your schedule all winter long, you can’t beat Sharpsounds Karaoke. It is the best karaoke in Northern Kentucky and has family-friendly options as well as options for an adults-only night out!

Adults Only Option

For an adults-only night out you can check out Sharpsounds Karaoke at Average Joe’s in Ft. Mitchell, Kentucky. Found right off of interstate 71/75, it is the perfect option for a fun night of singing. In addition to the awesome karaoke show there is also a billiard table, video games, and an outdoor patio. The many options make it easier to find a place to sing that even your non-karaoke-ing friends will enjoy.

 

If you’re looking for a fun local activity that fits your schedule all winter long, you can’t beat Sharpsounds Karaoke. It is the best karaoke in Northern Kentucky and has family-friendly options as well as options for an adults-only night out!

Winter Activities

There is one more awesome aspect to Sharpsounds Karaoke that truly makes it the best karaoke in Northern Kentucky and that is the free parties. Every year during the holidays there are Christmas parties, a New Year’s Eve celebration and countless other celebrations. Each one of these is totally free to attend and will include freebies like food or favors. On New Year’s Eve you even get a free champagne toast at midnight, again absolutely for free. There is no cover charge or minimum purchase to be included in the fun.

 

If you’re looking for a fun local activity that fits your schedule all winter long, you can’t beat Sharpsounds Karaoke. It is the best karaoke in Northern Kentucky and has family-friendly options as well as options for an adults-only night out!

Seriously, if you love to sing your heart out at karaoke you cannot beat Sharpsounds Karaoke. Once you go you’ll feel like family. Plus it doesn’t hurt that you can make a family night of it with the kiddos. Now that you know my favorite place to do karaoke, come back next week for tips to save money on girl’s night out. You’ll be ready to grab the girls and head out for a night on the town.
