I know, I know… It’s sometimes hard to find time to go for a walk or hit the gym after a long day of work, errands, picking the kids up from school, making dinner, cleaning the house, etc etc
But for those of you that do make a point to take out that hour to pay attention to your health, here’s a few things to help you make the most of your jog.
MBT Boost Sneakers in Rose

1. First off, really consider investing in a pair of MBT sneakers. It’s the biggest favor you can do for yourself, especially if you don’t have a lot of time to exercise. These unique sneakers make sure you are getting the absolute most out of every step you take, because it strengthens core muscles that walking, otherwise wouldn’t target. Expect to fork out between $169 and $300 for a pair, but you need to think of it as an investment in your health. You’ll find they are absolutely worth it.
For those of you in warmer climates and tighter budgets, go pick up a pair of $50 FitFlops.
2. When you get back from your jog (or your walk) you can feel exhausted and tired. If walking and jogging isn’t a part of your daily schedule it can be easy to get out of shape. I know if I go a couple days without walking, when I finally do go out, ly legs get all tingly and heavy feeling. When I get back, I slather them with [comfort zone] Vital Leg Cream-Gel or Leg Spray. Th cream-gel provides in intense cooling sensation that immediately relives the tingly, itchy feeling in my legs. The spray isn’t as intense, but is quick and easy to apply and feels heavenly on tired legs. I also like putting it on my lower back for temporary relief of sore muscles.
3. If exercise isn’t enough and your cellulite is still hanging around like your 35 year old son that just won’t move out, then try these great products from Bliss.

You need fatgirlslim, a super potent cream that visibly diminishes those dastardly dimples. Turns out that some creams, really do work! This one features QuSome-encapsulated caffeine molecules for quick and targeted delivery of the skin-slimming stuff.
The second product you want is the the love handler to target your wiggly waist, tummy pudge and back fat? You can wage war on those not-so-hard ‘core’ areas with this genius gel, formulated for extended 8-hour caffeine release. With cooling mint oil and naturally-derived amino acid ingredients. I love the feeling of it after you put it on! It really feels like it’s working.
4. If you have small children, getting out for a walk can be even harder. And when you think about toting them in that stupid umbrella stroller, you probably feel like just staying home. I don’t blame you! But I have news for you sister… you ain’t getting out of it that easy!
Mutsy 4 Rider

I don’t leave home without my Mutsy 4Rider Light Stroller. You wouldn’t think that there would be a huge difference between a cheap Graco stroller from Wal Mart and a nice high-end stroller, but WOWEEE! HUGE difference. Bumps that once shook your poor infant into a coma seem like fluffy clouds passing by. It pushes sooooo easily and effortlessly, plus the handles are adjustable and putting it together is totally intuitive.
Plus it’s really easy to fold up and take with you in the trunk of your car (we have a mini-van). I really love mine and now that I’ve had and used such a fantastic stroller, I have no idea how I lived without it. It really is indispensable. The only bad thing I could even think to say about this stroller is the lack of a cup holder. lol
If you have to take your stroller any sizable distance and you can’t convince your poor husband push it, seriously consider getting a Mutsy stroller. You’ll thank me later…
