From work-at-home mum to work-out-at-home mum

I have to figure out how to workout out at home, consistently, regularly. I have to find motivation and inspiration. I have to become fit. I would really like to fit my size 10 jeans again.

I am a work-at-home mum, I have gained almost 16 kgs (35 lbs) since my two sons (ages 6 and 4) were born and I am desperate to feel my body alive and strong again. I feel sluggish, out-of-shape, heavy, and tired. I am hauling around my extra weight every day (and no, it is not muscle). I get depressed because my clothes don’t fit me. I don’t feel sexy. I don’t feel together.

I am active. Meaning, I walk, snowshoe, lift my boys, garden. But I am not fit. I used to be fit. I have done trail running, a few 5K and 10K races, and even a marathon. I used to kayak and snowboard and go to the gym. I used to do a lot of things. But now, I am at home, I work, but I don’t workout.

I did join a local woman’s fitness class, once a week on Wednesday evenings and lead that class once a month. But, if you are struggling with weight or fitness levels too, you know that once a week is only a start.

I want to change from being a work-at-home mum to a work-out-at-home mum.

Here, I plan to post workout plans, exercises that work, menus, healthy snacks, and more.

Want to join me? I have created a private Facebook group where we can support each other on our journeys.

Shall we get started?
