Babysitter’s Workout

Babysitter’s Workout

I don’t know what it is about babysitting and eating, but somewhere between the mac & cheese dinners, cookies, Goldfish snacks or leftover Halloween candy — I can never manage to just go for the apple when I have all these other (obviously tastier) options.

So you splurged and had a bowl of mac & cheese, now what?  You put the kids to bed and start watching tv or doing homework, right? Instead of sitting around feeling lowsy about cheating your diet, you can do a few workouts that are quiet which won’t disturb the kids sleeping.

  • Squats (hold a 2-liter of pop or gallon of milk for extra weight)
  • Lunges (hold a 2-liter of pop or gallon of milk for extra weight)
  • Tricep Dips
  • Push-ups
  • Abdominal hold (Fitness Magazine)
  • Various leg exercises (Fitness Magazine) – sissy squat, split squat, goblet squat, three-way lunge & more

Hopefully these simple exercises will give you some ideas to keep you off the couch at babysitting! They definitely make the time go a little faster when I’m there, not to mention, make you feel better about eating that junk food.
