Fitness and Bubs

Be Healthy

EnerG+How do you keep fit? Social sport? Competitive sport? Running? Gym? Chasing kids around the playground? Yoga? Boxing? A Personal Trainer? Doing a squat hold while you’re ironing? Walking the kids to the school? Swimming? Pilates? Group fitness classes? Going walking while the kids are at sports training?

There’s obviously LOTS to choose from but probably not much time in which to do it! I only have 1 child and I’m on maternity leave so I’m really enjoying going running with the pram, going to the gym and walking along the beach. BUT, how do people do it when they’ve got more than one child? We really hope to have more children and I’m always curious to see how on earth people manage life with multiple kids- let alone fit in exercise!

One of the things I’ve been really careful with, both during pregnancy and since giving birth to little Elka Scout, is to keep up my Pilates. It’s really helped me feel more confident in my body and trust that I am strong enough to do things without hurting myself.

I’d love to hear about any Mums and Bubs classes that you can recommend in your area so that we can share that information with other mums out there who are looking to stay healthy.

If you’re in the Seacliff or surrounding area, Gen from EnerG+ offers Personal Training, ‘Parents and Prams’ and lots more. Pilates is coming soon too! Information is below- and make sure you let us know what you do to keep fit as we’d love to share that information.

  • So, I’ve joined a new gym or 'fitness centre'. I’m actually still going to my old gym once a week too but the new one has childcare so that’s pretty handy! It's actually been awesome, but some aspects made me giggle at the start. Here’s a basic rundown on what happened recently at my ‘induction’ at my new gym: Personal Trainer says: “What areas do you want to target specifically?” Me secretly thinking: Specifically? All of ‘the areas’. Me actually saying: “Oh my core, inner thighs and butt.”   Personal Trainer says: “ What does your diet generally look like during the day?” Me secretly thinking: What does my diet look like? My diet looks like the silhouette of a giant panda. Me actually saying: “Well my breakfast is pretty healthy and we don’t eat takeaway often. But I do sort of just grab whatever’s easiest from the fridge and pantry during the day.”   Personal Trainer says: “Do you ever have dessert?” Me secretly thinking: Pfffftt. No. I usually eat too much at dinner to fit in dessert. Unless Milo counts as dessert. Me actually saying: “No. Just Milo.”   Personal Trainer says: “Oh no! Milo is really bad…

  • Trying to get pregnant? Already pregnant? Already a mum? I don't know about you, but one of the things I am finding most difficult about being pregnant (apart from tying shoelaces, rolling over in bed, awkward crying when watching Domestic Blitz and eating WAY too many Seaweed Sakatas with skinny hommus) is coming to terms with my new shape* and reduced fitness capacity. Did anyone else find this a bit overwhelming? I mean, I actually cannot imagine being able to run again, let alone jump. This sometimes gets me down for two reasons: 1) I LOVE running. Running makes me feel so happy and healthy. 2) I LOVE sneakers. Sneakers make me feel happy and healthy. (Also my husband keeps reminding me that I still have 2 pairs of sneakers I've not  yet worn and no, I don't need new ones.... booo). So instead of running, I've been walking. I guess I have actually been enjoying walking a bit, but my iTunes library is getting a bit boring and the crazy hot summer days of Adelaide have meant I've been walking at 5 or 6am then again at 7 or 8pm to avoid too much sun. This means getting up…
