Getting exercise as a mum is something that some women seem to do really well, and others like me are rather sporadic in their dedication. It is only now that I am starting to get a regular walk in before the day begins that I am almost able to call it a bit of a lifestyle rather than Monday morning enthusiasm after a big weekend that falls flat by Tuesday. This has been a great way to keep me energized and clear my head to meet the challenges of the day ahead. And lets face it, getting out with a newborn or a younger baby is a little more difficult when there is more than one child to manage in the pram.
Recently I met a gorgeous mum who had a fabulous idea to help mums get some exercise but more importantly do it in a way that helps build on that beautiful bonding time that we are afforded in that short time before they are up running around chasing after their siblings.
Now I so wish I had these cards earlier as Mr 1 is now on the slightly heavy side for some of these exercises, but I still had so much fun playing around with him that I actually forgot I was exercising as well.
So basically these are exercise cards that aim at giving you a range of low impact exercises to work on different parts of the body, with the help of your baby to act both as a weight and a distraction. There are clear pictures and more detailed explanations on the back of each card.
These would make a great pressie for someone having a new bub!
I have a box to give away (valued at $29.95), so leave a comment about how you manage or don’t manage to exercise with young kids?
Competition is open to Australian residents only and closes Wednesday 27th September 5pm aest.
