I’m having such a great time writing this new blog feature.
It’s wonderful to see pictures and collect stories from parents who, despite various challenges, are making fitness part of their lives. I do hope it also might inspire anyone else reading in the same way as it helps to motivate me.
This week I’m celebrating lovely and very active Mum, Carla. She has three boys and had two difficult pregnancies.
This is a picture of her pregnant with her twins.
She has kindly let me share her photos and a few words of encouragement for all parents about the fact she managed to regain fitness despite the challenges of her pregnancies.
These current pictures of her are wonderful. Not only does she find time to exercise regularly despite her full time job and three boys, but she also often runs with the kids and her husband. Exercise and training are fun family activity for them all.
I love this photo of them all at the local athletics track. Not only are Carla and her husband enjoying training and running for themselves, they are also being great examples for their children.
Below is another version of the same photo, but with what I think is another really important message of encouragement.
As Carla explained she had a tough time through her pregnancies but despite the challenges has regained her fitness.
If she can do it after her twin pregnancy I should certainly keep going with my efforts at the running club. If you’re reading and wondering if its possible for you too, well of course it is! You CAN get back to fitness.
Thank you Carla so much for letting me share these photos and your story.
