The reality is I kept waiting for these perfect moments which never came! Life sometimes just gets away with us and this became something further and further away, I realised if I wanted to get physically fit and healthy again I’d need to get creative. I had to start thinking of ways in which i could bring fitness to my new World, with little ones and even it was messy and didn't fit my ideal workout box this would be better than nothing.
Born out of this i started to play and begin to find ways to bring working out and being active into my World, in a way that could work into the reality of my life with little ones. where I felt i was able to do something that was for me, a person, a mom, with my toddlers and without trying to find extra hours all-round the clock but rather fitting into our life as it stood.
What i leant is that exercise doesn't have to be in the this perfect little box, it can be fun, messy, work around the crazy hectic-ness of motherhood whilst also being extremely effective!!
