Fitness & Motherhood

The Easter Bunny is on his way and with that comes baskets full of chocolate bunnies, Peeps and jelly beans.  We often think of the Easter holiday filled with sweets, but you can also do something else with all of those plastic eggs! 

Grab your family for a fun filled Easter workout!  After your family egg hunt empty all of those candy filled eggs and replace them with some family friendly exercises.  Cut up some paper and brainstorm some of your favorite exercises.  Write them down and put them into eggs.  Here are a few exercises to get you started!

·         30 second plank

·         10 squats

·         15 jumping jacks

·         30 seconds jumping rope

·         10 push ups

·         15 crunches

·         Walk around the neighborhood


Once you have filled your fitness eggs hide them!  Once all eggs have been found gather the family together and perform all of the exercises together.  This is just the start to your Easter exercise fun! 

Next it’s time for an egg relay.  Divide the family into two teams and get two spoons and two plastic eggs.  Each person has to run balancing their egg on the spoon to the other side and run back passing the egg and spoon to the next person.  If you drop the egg you have a 10 calf raise penalty, and then keep going! 

The last Easter event is the bunny hop.  Line everyone up and hop across the yard, this will keep your heart pumping.  Once you cross the finish line you are finished.

Enjoy your family, friends and Easter goodies this holiday, but make a little time for a fun Easter workout.  Happy Easter, and pass me the Peeps would you!
