No Money, No Problem! 10 Ways to Get Fit For Free

Maybe you think celebrity moms have it easy. After all, they are rich! They can hire a babysitter to watch their baby while they work out with their personal trainer. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served fresh by the best chefs. They don't have to lift their fingers to wash their salads if they don't want to. Okay, so maybe they're easier than others!

But don't buy the reasons you need to lose weight. Your budget doesn't have to hold you back. There are many things moms can do every day to burn calories and exercise without cash:

1. Review health and fitness books from the library. Here are some headlines to get you started: The Beck Diet Solution: Train Your Brain to Think Like a Thin by Judith S. Beck and the Body for Women's Life: A Woman's Plan for Physical and Mental Transformation by Pam Peeke and Cindy Crawford.

2. Take the hike. Enjoy the season on a challenging walk outside the great home.

3. Work in your garden. Managing your plants is not only therapeutic, it is a great exercise. If you need to cut your grass, everything is better!

4. Create your own home exercise circuit. Choose three activities to get your heart rate up, such as walking up and down stairs, jumping, jogging through the house or on the spot. Do each activity for 2 minutes and then move on to the next activity. Repeat.

5. Search YouTube for free exercise routines and ideas.

6. Try the gym with a free one-week trial. Do you have a gym near your home? Stop by and ask if they have a guest pass for a week. The answer is probably yes. It's the perfect way to give the gym a try without investing.

7. Ride your bike. Whether you're traveling solo or with your family or friends, cycling is a great way to relieve stress, get outside and burn calories.

8. Play Frisbee with your family. You will be so much fun, you will forget all the walking you did to catch the Frisbee!

9. Exercise with your baby. Try holding your baby while doing squats, kissing your baby during push-ups or raising your baby over and over!

10. Drink water. Skip soda, latte cafes, alcoholic beverages, and lemonade. Choose water - you will not only save calories, you will save money!

See, there are lots of ways to get fit for free! So what are you waiting for?
