Becoming ( and staying) a healthy motivated mum
Embrace your own path.
Don’t compare yourself with others or try and compete with someone else’s weight loss. We are all different and all our bodies do things differently. We don’t even put the same amount of weight on as pregnant women and some people lose weight a lot easier than others.
It’s easy to look at the glamorous celebrity mums who stayed super skinny throughout their pregnancy, just a small little bump at the front, and then sport a bikini seemingly the week after giving birth and feel down about yourself as a mum when you compare yourself unfairly.
We need to appreciate the beautiful and special woman inside us and then take care of her. Make her important because a healthy, energised, active mum who exercises and eats a healthy diet for her health is a vibrant mum able to give her family the very best of herself.
Make it fun.
As we are all so different so we all have different likes and interests so you can’t expect the same types of exercise to interest everybody long term. Try lots of different things until you find what you really enjoy and you will find yourself wanting to do it often.
Why not try netball, taekwondo, tennis, bush walking, running, swimming, pram walking, a mum’s exercise group.
The same applies to healthy food, try different recipes, source fresh ingredients, look at what you can add to your diet instead of focusing on what you can’t eat.
Nothing motivates like inspiration. Read inspiring books, listen to inspiring music, watch inspiring television and surround yourself with inspirational quotes and inspiring people. We should be looking to down to earth mum role models, sporting mums, fitness experts and trainers and real life weight loss stories to inspire ourselves to be the best version of ourselves that we can be.
Follow your inspiration...
The more healthy choices you make, the more you’ll find you actually want to make.
The more exercise you do, the more you’ll find you can do and the more you’ll actually want to do!
