A question I often get asked is how do I make time to keep fit and eat well, as this is what lot of mums struggle with!
My answer is always this…. Fitness may be my line of work and yes I do work for myself but it’s still not ‘easy’ for me. We all have our struggles that we have to overcome and deal with daily and time management and your priorities are what it comes down to, also how you manage your stress levels.
I have learnt that I can’t physically do it all and I reach out for help where I can. We don’t have any family here in Melbourne and whether you only have 1 child or many children it is still a challenge for each family to juggle everything as each situation is so different. Matt is a hands on daddy when he is around and I also use occasional daycare for Leo now so that I can get my work done properly without him around. Where there is a will there is a way and putting my health first makes me a better mum so Leo benefits. I aim to be the best role model for him and to me that means I have to keep myself grounded and calm even on those days where it all feels too hard. Nutrition is the most important thing so if you can’t get to a gym you can still eat well as long as you are organised and prepared with your meals! If you are on snapchat then be sure to follow me as I am always posting tips about training and nutrition on there. My username is Justinefitmum.
Here are some tips to help you stay afloat and keep focused on your goals:
–Set daily and weekly goals, that’s what I do now and it really helps me to get the job at hand done and stay calm.
–Be prepared with your nutrition, make sure you are organised and have good food choices in the house so that you can’t eat anything bad.
–Schedule in exercise, even if it is just a walk with the pram or a 20 min training circuit at home, it all counts!
–Don’t let the opinions of others get you down or stop you from wanting to be fit and healthy.
–Find support, this is crucial whether it comes from your family or your friends you need to find a support network that keeps you on track and inspired!
-And above all else BE KIND TO YOURSELF, if you slip up or have a bad day get over it and move on, dwelling gets you nowhere!!
