I am very keen to get my post-baby figure back up to scratch and have been looking for ways to incorporate fitness into my currently full-time role as a mother. As I have discovered, this is NOT easy. Especially when you're running around like a headless chicken anyway and up at all hours doing bottle feeds and cleaning up poop. But I miss the endorphins of a quick run or trip to the gym. Now don't judge me to be a massive gym junkie. I'm really not! I have just always valued the feeling of regular exercise sessions. I may be a mother now, but I am also still me. And as 'me', I want to rediscover my joys and hobbies while juggling childcare at the same time. So I had a nose around at some websites and thought I'd share them with you. They offer handy advice on how to get fit around a hectic lifestyle. I hope you find them useful!
