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
- 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.
