Maintain your Healthy Eating and Regular Exercise

You have made it to the end of the month congratulations and hopefully a healthier and happier you?

So now where and what to do? Once you have changed old habits and increased your exercise for more than 3 weeks it should now be a new habit so it should be easier for you to maintain a healthy eating and regular exercising regime.

Of course things can change and throw a spanner in the works-kids sick, school holidays a few too many birthday parties etc. But try to note how how good you are feeling now and maintain that thought as this will help you get you back on track when on occasions you do fall off.

Don’t ever feel bad about treating yourself or enjoying a glass of wine, everything in moderation including exercise!

Fit and healthy mums get to enjoy life with their kids, are able to run around and chase them on their scooters, help them learn to ride their bikes without feeling puffed.

We can get through all of our daily chores without worrying about any back or shoulder pain and we can be the parents and partners we want to be just because we have chosen a healthier lifestyle. We are confident, strong and totally amazing women!
