My Fitness Journey Begins Again

Body Image, Childhood, Fitness Journey

I vaguely remember a stage in my life when I wasn’t overweight. I dare say I was even skinny. It was during my very early childhood {see above image}.  I even have photos of me in a bikini posing in a cute little girl body. I appear to have a little baby fat, but that’s considered cute. Whenever I look at this photo I kind of can’t believe it was me. Because from about grade 3 – 8 or 9 years of age – all I remember is being fat. Yes I’m not going to sugar coat it in this online journal. I was and I still am fat. I’ve been through a few different trials of dieting Continue reading “My Fitness Journey Begins Again”

Salts For Health, Long Forest – Friday Feature with Curvy Mummy

Salt Therapy

Salt Therapy is one of the latest trends in the Health and Wellness industry. It’s becoming very popular and much more readily available in our society today. I only heard about it a little while ago when my husband came home with the information. It caught his attention because of the idea that it could help relieve respiratory ailments. Being an asthmatic since childhood he was very keen on trying it out. It took him a while to finally book his first session but he did.

Our little baby bear was born in the beginning of the coldest months we experience in our area. Therefore you can guess the next thing I’m about to

Behaviour Problems, a Normal Part of Growing Up

behaviour problems, motherhood

Of late my boys have tested me with misbehaviour in a high frequency. In the last fortnight my eldest boy has been showing signs of becoming a lot more head strong than his mother. My younger baby bear is just a natural at having no thread of patience. From just a few months old he was named the ‘Hangry One’. The moments where he doesn’t get his own way he will slap the wall, the floor, the fridge, and even the dog if he just happens to be there. Sometimes I can’t help but chuckle even though I’m really over it. Behaviour problems are so much easier to deal with at home. My children are very well behaved when we are out and about. So much so it brings me to a point where I think people won’t believe me if I complain about tantrums at home.

As a mum of two now I look back often at the time when I had one baby bear. I remember people would always ask if he was my first. When my response was

Motherhood Melbourne – Friday Feature with Curvy Mummy

Motherhood Melbourne, Friday Feature

When you see the words Motherhood Melbourne what thoughts come to your mind? I first noticed the profile on Instagram during my daily #instastalking activity on Instagram. My first assumption was that this was some sort of social group sharing all things motherhood in social media. As a mum myself and originally from Melbourne I wanted to find out more. I started following, stalked some more on Facebook and liked the page. I even signed up to the awesome newsletter! Looking through the website I found so much useful information for mums, especially useful if you’re a mum from or near Melbourne. I noticed there was an event coming up – exclusive for mums only. Then, when I received the email about the tickets for the Hood Mama Event I

Trying to Conceive: My Story

mum of boys, love, motherhood

They say when you stop wanting and searching for that missing piece in your life it will just fall into your lap. Or arms, or hands, or basket…or whatever is suited for that little bit of something you long for. In a nutshell that’s how my first pregnancy came about. My second baby wasn’t easy to brew either. I was in my mid-thirties and trying to conceive, I became my own enemy with over doing the googling about the statistics.

My journey of trying to conceive wasn’t the smoothest of sailing. But one thing I kept reminding myself was that there are others in the same boat. And there

I’m a Mum of Boys and I’m Proud

motherhood, mum of boys

I am a mum of boys and I couldn’t be more proud. Did I ever want a girl? Yes, of course I longed for a girl of my own, a mini me. But I’ve been blessed with two beautiful boys. I’m a mum of boys. Two healthy, happy and energetic boys.

It would have been so dreamy to have a girl of my own. How wonderful would it have been to have a little girl to share my makeup? How nice would it have been to have a girl of my own so she could be my shopping buddy? I could have dressed her up in fancy clothes any day of the week and she wouldn’t mind. Brush her hair and do it up in cute styles every day. But this wish I had Continue reading “I’m a Mum of Boys and I’m Proud”

Coping with Separation Anxiety with my pre-schooler

separation anxiety, motherhood

Separation Anxiety for me has been a big deal from the day I gave birth to my first boy. The enormous responsibility that I had just assumed enveloped my entire being. I seriously could not see past my duties as his Mother. It became everything to me. With any chance I could get I would research with my trusted Google search engine on my phone. In fact I did this even when I was holding him or breastfeeding him. Continue reading “Coping with Separation Anxiety with my pre-schooler”

I no longer question how to find time to be a fit mum. I no longer let time constraints overrule my day. I’m on my way to achieving my mission. To become a fit mum with at least 3 short workouts a week.

Mama, are you looking after yourself?

motherhood rising

I don’t believe I could say enough about how motherhood changed me as a person and I believe that the changes are not limited. As I get older (squint) my life takes me to places I do and don’t expect. Therefore my experiences are multiplying and varying by the day. It’s up to me to grasp the opportunities that are accompanying said experiences.

With child number one I let myself fall into the trap of neglecting my own wellbeing. I put all of my effort into just being mum. It was all about feed baby, bath baby, change baby, clean house, cook dinner (or complain that I didn’t Continue reading “Mama, are you looking after yourself?”
