Finding a healthy life amongst the crazy!

Wagons have been fallen off of, exercise has been a little less intense, food choices have not been exemplary…guess what? It happens!
Life with all it’s glorious twists and turns sometimes gets in the way of the best laid plans. First it was Christmas, then New Year, then holidays, then back to work, and the list of obstacles to healthy eating and a solid exercise plan just seems to grow.
Excuses excuses you may say, and yes sometimes I have made excuses, but for the most part, life as a mum of 5 with lots of commitments can be crazy busy, crammed, overwhelming and just exhausting.
My pole classes and stretching have been great, though the ‘at home’ stretching has been a little lacking of late.
So with the Easter holidays almost upon us, I’m going to see what small consistent changes I can make in my day to make room and energy for my (and the families) health.
What could that look like for us?

1. Less chocolate, more fruit as treats.
2. Less of consoles, more playing in the garden or walks to the park.

(Master 6 has unfortunately broken his arm so no scootering/swimming etc for him 😣)
2 small changes, surely we can do that?

As for me, I’m starting back on the weight training 2-3 times a week, combined with dance and stretching that should be enough to go on with.
Unfortunately it seems my trail running aspirations are going to be postponed this year, but I’ll leave that story for another time.

Weight training in the garden, great until the kids drop a dumbbell on their toes 😱
Done safely it can work!
