lose_baby_weightIf you haven’t pulled on your trainers for a bit of exercise in a while –  it’s time to dust them off.
There are lots of reasons why exercise can fall by the wayside, but we’ve got some tips to get you back out there on the road to feeling (and looking) your best.

‘I’m so tired I can barely keep my eyes open.’

We understand all too well how tiring being a mum can be. You need to get sleep when you can, and you want it to be quality sleep. Did you know that in fact exercise will make you sleep better? So even if you’re being woken up by your little one calling for room service at 3am, the sleep you do get will be more restful if you have exercised. Even if you just commit to a 15 minute walk, chances are that once you get going you will find that you feel better.

‘It’s too wet outside’

Set your alarm for an hour before the kids get up and pop on the Healthy Mummy Exercise DVD. It burns approximately 450 – 550 calories an hour and is designed to be done in 10 and 15 minute sections – perfect for busy mums

‘There’s just no time in the day for me to exercise’

Hit the pavement with your kids. We have loads of great ideas for including your kids in your workout. You could also offer to babysit a friend’s kids while they workout and then they look after yours while you head out. Another idea is to train with a friend when your partners can look after the munchkins.

‘I really just don’t like exercising’

That’s OK, a lot of people don’t really like the actual exercising as such – they like how the exercise makes them feel (and look).
Find something that you enjoy, and training won’t feel like such a chore.
Why not try a one off Zumba class and see if you like that, a mum-focused Pilates class where you can meet likeminded people, or maybe a hula hooping class, a workout DVD you can do at home in your favourite tracksuit pants, grab a rope and start skipping, or take the kids for a bike ride.
Realistically, just finding the kind of exercise that you dislike the least could be a good starting point.

‘It’s been so long I don’t know where to start’

Take it slow. You don’t need to go from zero to 100 in your first week. A great way to follow a structured exercise plan is on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
This has a daily plan – with videos and full instructions and all can be done at home – so perfect for time poor and busy mums and you can fill out your progress in the online progress sheets to see your improvements in fitness as the weeks go on.
