I think Ive totally let myself down. I used to be fairly fit and was on a general path to good fitness and health. I could run 3 miles in half an hour and did that at least three times a week, I would do 100 sit ups in the morning and 100 at night. I eschewed the chocolate bars, oven chips and so forth in favour of salads and grilled and steamed food (healthy for us both). Now, I have a saggy belly, I feel so stiff and unfit I can’t tell you. Ive got spots, I’m miserable and I NEED to eat chocolate bars. Where did it all go wrong? Having a baby, frankly. I felt I couldn’t do as much exercise and certainly no sit ups and so forth. The slippery slope started and I fell down it. Hourly to two hourly feeding at night meant that I had to grab something quick to eat to fill my energy needs and before I knew it I was back addicted to chocolate.
I need to do something, so today I launch the BEING A MUMMY HEALTH and FITNESS CLUB. (BMHFC– not the most catchy moniker). I’m starting with these easy resolutions:
- I’m not going to buy any chocolate or sweets this week
- I’m going to do at least 10 sit up and 10 press ups each morning and evening
- I’m going to try to cook healthier dinners
- I’m going to try to do at least 5 minutes per day on the trampette
To join my club, use the comments section and each time we have a BMHFC report I’ll include yours….
