I have a goal to try and stay fit my entire life, which I know sounds a bit unusual but it is important to me.  I want to take care of my body and keep it fit (read my stay fit tips here), so I can play with my kids effortlessly and handle any physical situation that may arise while I am with them.  It’s not always easy, but the little one and I have been running three days a week since he was cleared by the Pediatrician to run in a stroller.

With the summer temperatures starting to spike (it’s been in the 90s in New Mexico), I’ve discovered a few things that help with the heat while working out.

  1. Give your little one a spray bottle with cool water to spray while you run/walk.  It keeps him entertained and will mist you.
  2. Wear loose fitting shorts and spandex type tops.  I’m not sure why, but this combination always keeps me a lot cooler than other options.
  3. Choose a light colored stroller.  Wish I would of thought of this one before I bought my running stroller.
  4. Dampen your shirt before you start working out.  People will look at you like you sweat like crazy, but at least you will be cool.

Do you have any tips to add for beating the summer heat while working out outside?

    At the moment I do the BBG by Kayla Itsines and try to get back into running (I don’t have a stroller suitable for this yet, so finding the time is challenging).
    Staying in shape to be able to cope in all situations is really important to me, too.

    I love the idea of staying fit for life. I just went back and read your other post. I feel the same way. I’ve really made a similar commitment and work hard at it while also trying to stay realistic. I drink a lot of water, eat at home most of the time, and walk when I can. I’m nervous about having a baby and being able to maintain it, so I’m glad to hear it’s been doable for you.

      It’s completely do-able, Amy Ann! You just have to stay committed and keep in mind that you are teaching your child healthy habits that will benefit them for life too. When you have your baby, I am confident that you will love working out with them as much as I love working out with mine. Thanks for following along! Have a wonderful weekend.
