Mummy Fitness

When you become a mum fitness maybe the last thing on your mind and I agree that you shouldn't even think about it for a good few months. It is totally normal to gain weight in pregnancy and to still have a big chunk of that left over once the baby is born. But once the time is right and you feel ready, exercise is a great way to boost your energy and lose those few extra pounds.

Once you make that decision the next big thing to figure out is actually trying to find the time to exercise. Nap times are always a good time but half the time I felt like I needed a nap too. Its tiring work getting up multiple times a night and you need to be kind to yourself and your body, especially if you have multiple children. There's no use burning yourself out.

For a lot of mums its easier to work out at home rather than going to the gym although some love the social side of that. Some also love escaping the house for an hour or so. You also have to think about the cost of things. Instead of spending loads of money on gym memberships or buying fitness equipment outright, why not just hire some? There are places which actually offer this service like Hire Fitness who even ship to Ireland here. Not paying for equipment out right is great if your budget is a little tight but you still want to work out at home with the right machines.

I love working out at home. Paige and Parker are at the age now where they try and copy and we all just end up in fits of giggles. I can also exercise around them and make them feel included. Playing with them is also a workout at times.

Having two kids to run around after is a constant workout for me but it's nice to add a little extra to tone up.

How do you workout around your children?

  1. My daughter is only 4 months old so I can't really include her in exercise! I was doing pretty well for a while and walking everyday and doing at home workouts 3 times a week. But I find with "working out" I can never hold on to the motivation and keep doing it. It gets so boring! I think I would do much better joining a class or something but I just can't afford it.

    1. There are mummy and baby workouts!! Great for getting baby involved at any age! x
