- Have a timed race across the monkey bars
- (mom and dad can do pull ups to slow themselves down and make it a better exercise)
- Sprint to the nearest light post
- Do crab walks, duck walks, and bear crawls in sand or on grass
- Find sand and have a long jump competition
- Teach the kids to do an assisted pull up (the parents get to work out their arms lifting the kid repeatedly!)
- Do burpees or star jumps for time.
- Have a relay race using a stick as a baton
- Or go back to tradition and play catch. Make it more of a workout by including sprinting to missed balls
Some days, we have to get our bodies moving and our blood pumping but are not able to get to the gym for various reasons. If your reason is that you have kids, this is the post for you! Grab the kids and head to the local park (this is ok in rain, snow, or sunshine). Use all of the facilities that the park has to make a game that gives you and the kids a workout. I have a list below of some ideas for fitness activities disguised as games!
If you are anything like me, I rarely have time for a warm breakfast. The problem is, as I have explained in earlier posts, that breakfast is an essential part of staying healthy (especially for kids!). Make your week easier by making a breakfast casserole for the week. This way, you can have a warm breakfast that is healthy without the hassle. Breakfast casserole will warm you up and start your day the right way.
Grab your casserole dish and whip 12 eggs, 1 lb hot sausage (or your favorite breakfast meats like ham, bacon, ground beef), onions, green peppers, salt, and pepper. You can inprovise and throw in any of your favorite veggies or additions to your eggs.
Bake in oven until firm. (Takes 12-15 minutes depending on the dish) Enjoy!
I have a confession... I LOVE peanut butter! I have had the hardest time avoiding it since I have gone paleo. Then, I found that PB Crave Cookie Nookie stuff and about died and went to heaven. In trying to stick to a paleo lifestyle and avoid peanut butter, I decided to make an almond butter version. AND IT WORKED! It hit the spot and is helping me kick my peanut butter cravings (for now).
Natural almond butter (the kind they grind from real almonds at the store)
Coconut oil (just a spoonful or 2 depending on how much you are making. This makes it creamier)
Dark chocolate chips (softened)
Mix to taste. Enjoy!
