VULNERABILITY * Being vulnerable isn't a sign of weakness and yet as a mum we find it so hard to let go of our tough exterior.. And of course as a mum we can't fall apart at every obstacle because our kids look to us for strength and guidance. However there is nothing wrong than allowing ourselves to be vulnerable and for them to see it. As much as we want to be supermums, we are not, and we are certainly not perfect- it doesn't exist!! You are not less successful if you are true to yourself. You need to acknowledge your feelings and actually talk about them, as this will only make you stronger. This is so important to me when raising my boys ,as boys are often taught to just "Man up!!" and not show emotion! I absolutely hate this! I encourage my boys to talk about their feelings and show their vulnerability ❤❤ I only hope they will grow up into sensitive caring gentlemen ❤❤ . . . . #keepitreal #realmom #realmum #mentalillness #gratitude #smilemore #lifelessons #vulnerable #bevulnerable #talkmore #boymum #mumofboys #lifelessonslearned #besensitive #truetoyourself #surreymum #surreymummy #wearewoking #strongmums #busymums #toughmums #positiveaffirmations #motherhood #mommyproblems #parentlife #selfcare #bestme #bestversionofyou

The only bad workout is the one that didn’t happen, From Reshape Your Life #FitnessInspiration . Today I got to use my Christmas present🙌🏻 #holidayworkout Felt good trying out different combinations. A couple shown in my Stories 🥊💪🏻 #boxingmums .

We are back home from our first big family holiday. Woke up feeling exhausted from the long road trip. I knew a little salt, sand and fresh air would do the trick #happyplace Spent the morning with my kids at the beach to cool off on this very hot summers day☀️🔥 #beachbabes 💫 Feeling more energetic and invigorated I managed to complete a strength based workout while the kids had a snooze (in air conditioning) #strongmums Focused on core, hamstrings and arms 💪🏻 #motivatedmums On holidays I keep my workouts short and sharp. Enough to release endorphins and maintain my fitness and strength. It doesn’t have to be about smashing yourself or spending hours at the gym #holidayworkouts 💫 2018 was all about giving Spartan a go. We did and loved it! Now that we’ve had a taste of it, I can’t wait to see what 2019 will bring with the Bella Fit Mums 🙌🏻 #goals #mumsfitness . . . . . . . . . #postnatalfitness #activefamilies #womensfitness #mumsandbubsfitness #healthymums #activemums #rolemodels #mumslife #postpartum #strongmums #motherhood #fitfam #activekids #healthylifestyle #realmums #realmumsfitness #mummymovements #womenwholift #toughmums #pelvicfloorstrength #northernbeachesmums #workoutforhappy #outdoorfitness #prenatalfitness
On the road again 🚘...... Going away on holidays has been a nice break from our busy lives and usual routine. I haven’t been as present on social media so I also have a “break” from my devices and spend quality time with family and friends creating new memories and experiences #LiveintheMoment . We are creatures of habit. Even though I’ve been out of my routine I’ve continued to exercise as it makes me feel good #happyhormones I’ve balanced it well with down time and letting my body unwind and switch off #restandrecovery . Being on holidays doesn’t mean your goals are forgotten. Keep them in mind and make time for your health and fitness. Make positive habits rather than negative ones. You’ll feel good moving your body and then can enjoy the rest of your day spending time with your loved ones #fridayfitnessmotivation . After spending the day sitting in the car, I’m looking forward to a good stretch and yoga sequence #wellbeing . . . . . . . . . . #mumsfitness #strongmums #postnatalfitness #activefamilies #womensfitness #mumsandbubsfitness #healthymums #activemums #rolemodels #mumslife #postpartum #strongmums #motherhood #fitfam #activekids #healthylifestyle #realmums #realmumsfitness #mummymovements #womenwholift #toughmums #pelvicfloorstrength #northernbeachesmums #workoutforhappy #outdoorfitness #prenatalfitness
JUST BEING ME! Something I have realized over this Christmas, is that I'm really content just being me and stripping myself back to basics. * It was a quiet Christmas and that was absolutely fine-there were days I stayed at home without make-up on, hair scraped back and wore joggers and a jumper and you know what, I was perfectly content with that. My son did tell me that I should remove my old coat when we went for our recent dog walk and I did concede. There was just no rush for anything, I wasn't as easily distracted and was able to totally engage in the moment! To read more about the lessons I learnt on our recent dog walk read my blog by clicking on link in bio. . . . . #keepitreal #realmom #realmum #labsofinstagram #adhdparenting #adhdawareness #asd #mentalillness #gratitude #smilemore #lifelessons #lifelessonslearned #strongmums #busymums #toughmums #surreymum #surreymummy #surreyblogger #wearewoking #womenshealthuk #familytime #familyfirst #selfcarematters #positiveaffirmations #motherhood #mommyproblems #parentlife #selfcare #bestme #bestversionofyou

Happy campers in the back with their snacks and IPad 😍 #happyholidays . We had a rocky start (well mostly me😭) would you believe from a technological mishap! I’m not IT inclined and was freaky out when I couldn’t work my IPad😫 #WhyNow Knowing we have a long drive ahead with two young kids and no movies or TV shows! I know back in the day we didn’t even have these devices but to be honest the trip goes a lot smoother with them 😂 . Thanks @ali_f_evans for your Apple IT help 🙏🏻 I finally got there!!!! Leaving later than expected #HubbyNotSoHappy ....

Christmas Cookies #HealthyRecipe (Healthier option) I had fun making these with my kids getting into the Christmas Spirit. The kids wanted to make them for Santa as well as themselves 💕 So I wanted to find a recipe that was reasonably healthy. My stories show us going through the steps 😍 💫 It’s the most magical time of the year 🎄🎅🏻💓 #Christmas2018 Recipe: Ingredients: 1 cup Almond Flour (2 cups GF) 1 cup whole meal flour 1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup unsalted butter (coconut oil as an alternative) 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 1/4 tsp almond extract 1 egg Directions: 1. Whisk together the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate smaller bowl, whisk together egg, honey, vanilla and almond extract. Add the butter/coconut oil and wet ingredients to dry and mix together with a sturdy spoon. You can also use hands to knead the dough. 2. When you are fine you will have a ball of dough that you can wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 1-2 hours. 3. Preheat 160 degrees Celsius fan forced or 180. Line a cookie sheet with baking paper. 4. Remove from refrigerator, remove plastic and roll out between two pieces of baking paper until about 2.5cm thick. 5. Use cookie cutter to cut shapes. Remove excess dough from around the shape and with your hand gently remove from the parchment paper. Put the cookie on a separate sheet. Place cookies about 2cm apart. 6. Decorate as you please. My kids choose mini freckles. 7. Bake for about 8 minutes. Being careful not to let the edges or bottom turn brown. Slightly burned almond flour can taste bitter. Let cool removing from pan. . . . . . . . . #womensfitness #mumsandbubsfitness #healthymums #activemums #rolemodels #mumslife #postpartum #strongmums #motherhood #fitfam #activekids #healthylifestyle #realmums #realmumsfitness #mummymovements #womenwholift #toughmums #pelvicfloorstrength #northernbeachesmums #workoutforhappy #happyhormones #outdoorfitness #prenatalfitness

My little man (not so little anymore 😭) has reached a huge milestone of graduating preschool 😳#wherehasmybabygone Thanks to his amazing teachers Bianca, Jane and Nev for 2 wonderful years! He has made great friendships and will miss seeing them each week😍 . There are a few of the Bella Fit Mums going through the same thing and it’s so nice to be able to share and support each other as we go through this emotional time in our lives😢 #communityofmums . I’ve loved every moment of watching my son grow into a kind, strong boy with a great sense of humour. He always wants to include everyone and can make a game out of anything. He has such a beautiful soul who loves and protects his younger sister💕 . To think I started Bella Fit when he was only 4 months old. Feels like a lifetime ago! I look forward to the next chapter #BigSchool 🙌🏻 It’ll be an emotional transition (for me😆) but I’m confident he will continue to grow and make amazing new friends 😍#buildresilience . . . . . . . . . . #womensfitness #mumsandbubsfitness #healthymums #activemums #rolemodels #mumslife #postpartum #strongmums #motherhood #fitfam #activekids #healthylifestyle #realmums #realmumsfitness #mummymovements #womenwholift #toughmums #pelvicfloorstrength #northernbeachesmums #workoutforhappy #happyhormones #outdoorfitness #prenatalfitness

All glamoured up for my Hubby’s work Christmas Party 🎉🥂nice change from activewear 😉 #GartnerRoseChristmasParty2018 🎄 I rarely talk about the ‘Rock’ of our family, my husband. He has had one of the biggest years of his career. I’m so proud of him and his accomplishments!

#FridayFitnessMotivation Your Fitness is 100% Mental. Your body won’t go where your mind doesn’t push it. Today I woke up feeling tired from the kids and legs sore from previous workouts this week. I was lacking motivation and not in the mood to do much. However I knew once I started to move my body and have a coffee, my mood would lift #ItsAllintheMind We all have days like this but once you start exercising you’ll feel so much better #workoutforhappy . I kept my workout light with the Bella Fit Mums to prevent injury and focus on muscles that won’t sore. It felt good releasing endorphins! #happyhormones #mumsfitness . . . . . . . . #womensfitness #mumsandbubsfitness #healthymums #activemums #rolemodels #mumslife #postpartum #strongmums #motherhood #fitfam #activekids #healthylifestyle #realmums #realmumsfitness #mummymovements #womenwholift #toughmums #pelvicfloorstrength #northernbeachesmums #workoutforhappy #happyhormones #outdoorfitness #prenatalfitness
A warm up should be part of your workout. Warm up the muscles essentially that you’ll be targeting. The idea is to move in similar patterns that you’ll be completely in your main set #motivatedmums . This will help prevent injury and loosen your muscles and joints before commencing the main set. Static stretching and holding is recommended for after main set. . The Bella Fit Mums do this warmup with Shuttle runs added in between sets: 10-15 Squats 10-15 Upper back (arms move from a V to W) 5-7 Pushups 6-10 Dynamic leg stretch 6-8 Shoulder Rolls 6 Cat and Cows . The ladies smashed out a cross training sets today 💪🏻#sweatnowshinelater 🙌🏻 #mumsandbubsfitness . A cool down should also be included in your workout. Stretching after exercise is important to lengthen the muscles you’ve just used and to assist with recovery over the next couple of days #healthymums . . . #womensfitness #strongmums #activemums #rolemodels #mumslife #postpartum #strongmums #motherhood #fitfam #activekids #healthylifestyle #realmums #realmumsfitness #mummymovements #womenwholift #toughmums #pelvicfloorstrength #northernbeachesmums #workoutforhappy #happyhormones #outdoorfitness

I came across this 👆🏻on Pinterest and it really resonated with me #FridayFitnessMotivation (You’ll also see this in my Insta Stories). . Respecting yourself and others is one important aspect that my hubby and I want for our children to learn #RespectYourself #RespectOthers #parentslife . I want them to understand there are many reasons to taking care of yourself and to keep fit and healthy #ItsNotAllAboutLooks . Of course we all like to look good. But it’s also a satisfying feeling when you have put in the effort, worked hard, shown discipline and dedication to your goals #strongwomen Which is also related to many aspects of our lives!

Throwback Thursday. This photo was taken at 40 weeks prenatal. My eldest son used to love kissing my tummy 😍. He was so excited to meet his brother or sister 💕 I know I was ready! 😆 . Little did I know that it was completely different returning back to exercise second time round. I had an amazing birth but this time round I had stomach separation due to my body holding Bub differently. Therefore my recovery was a slower process and really tested my patience. I was so eager to get back to my strength and fitness. . With the help of a women’s health Physio @beachesphysio I built up my pelvic floor and core strength first #womenshealth . Six weeks postpartum I started with lights weights and low impact exercises. I had to gradually build up strength #postnatalfitness . By doing all the correct steps and listening to my body, I now feel stronger than ever 💪🏻 #mumsfitness and was able to participate in a Spartan Race #spartantraining . We all have a different birth story and recovery rate. No matter what level of fitness you are currently, we have to start somewhere. . You have the support and assistance at Bella Fit Mums and Bubs as well as with women’s health Physios, in returning safely back to exercise and gradually building up your strength and fitness #womensfitness . . . . . . . . #healthymums #activemums #rolemodels #mumslife #postpartum #strongmums #motherhood #fitfam #activekids #healthylifestyle #realmums #realmumsfitness #mummymovements #womenwholift #toughmums #pelvicfloorstrength #northernbeachesmums #workoutforhappy #happyhormones #fitfun #festiveseason
IT'S A BLACK AND WHITE WORLD Is it really? I hope not!! My 13 year old special needs son views the world this way and I actually believe many others do too. .. Beautiful or ugly Good or bad Fat or thin Fit or unfit Happy or sad Energetic or lazy Clever or stupid Colourful or dull It feels like an either/or situation but what about all the shades in between? Are we trapped into putting people into boxes? Are we making these black and white judgments of people? What about the person who has a lovely smile, big nose, thin hair, gorgeous legs, fit enough to dance all night but not fit enough to run a marathon, happy most of the time but has her down moments, energetic but likes to have a lazy moment and put her feet up, clever with languages but not so much with maths and sees herself as a good person but can do things that she isn't proud of. Wow that's quite a list but don't these describe a lot of us? Yet society often puts us into categories! I'm trying to teach my son to view the world differently as he unfortunately is often put in a box himself. There are so many lights and shades to people's characters which makes life interesting. Us humans are such complex colourful creatures, it's time we accept and explore more of each other and practice more acceptance. So share some postive as well as negative attributes about yourself that makes you who you are.. . . . . #keepingitreal #realmom #realmum #adhdparenting #mentalhealth #gratitude #lifelessons #lifelessonslearned #strongmums #busymums #toughmums #stopjudging #acceptance #bodyacceptance #imnotperfect #womenshealthuk #empoweringwomen #blackandwhitephotos #valueeachother #surreymummy #surreymum #surreyblogger #valueyourself #valueoflife #unique #flawsome #selfcare #bestme #bestversionofyou

✨I am only human ✨Not every insta post or every day is a good day or a pic perfect day 🙄 today I went for my psychotherapy and everything in my body was hurting and my feet was burning and so was my legs :( I will never accept this disease and I have for over half a year not been taking my meds because I could control it with my running - now I am not running so I had to take the medicine again 😣 I really hope that this period of recovery will be fast because this is NOT me and I miss my long runs. - - - #mswarrior #multiplesclerosis #recovery #autoimmune #runnerslife #instagood #picoftheday #bestoftheday #fuckthis #løber #notagoodday #nopainogain #hardwork #run #betterhealth #feelgood #fitnessjourney #beatyesterday #notfeelingit #runnershigh #runnersworld #runningaddict #beunstoppable #stronger #strongwoman #nothappy #nevergiveup #girlpowerbycep #feelbetter #toughmums
Be stronger than your excuses! 🥊 What’s your number one excuse? Is it stopping you from reaching your health and fitness goals? This time of year especially gets very busy and tiring. Let’s not let this get in the way of your wellbeing! #healthymums 🥊 In fact exercise is the best thing you can do to help you through the ‘silly season’ #festiveseason Exercise releases endorphins #happyhormones and is a great stress reliever. Not every workout has to be about pushing yourself to the limit. Opt for yoga, core workout and low impact exercises if you are feeling tired. You’ll gain the benefits of releasing endorphins and clear your mind #wellbeing 🥊 On the days you feel more energetic turn up to your exercise class, challenge yourself with #workoutoftheweek , go out for a run or walk💪🏻 🥊 Keep active to keep up with your little ones #mumsfitness We’ll done for ladies for turning up to the session today and putting in an awesome effort 🙌🏻#mumsandbubsfitness 🥊 Need inspiration and motivation for a home workout?

Perfect day for the Bella Fit Mums and Bubs #outdoorfitness We focused on strength with compound exercises (using two or more muscles). Targeting chest, back, quads and hamstrings. In between strength sets was a Cross Training exercise to maximise time. Rather than resting completing, this allows the muscle you’re targeting rest time. Cross training increases your heart rate and builds on your fitness. Finishing with core strength exercises #mumsandbubsfitness I love my job and seeing the little ones each week #postnatalfitness . . . . . . #womensfitness #mumsandbubsfitness #healthymums #activemums #rolemodels #mumslife #postpartum #strongmums #motherhood #fitfam #activekids #healthylifestyle #realmums #realmumsfitness #mummymovements #womenwholift #toughmums #pelvicfloorstrength #northernbeachesmums #workoutforhappy #happyhormones #postnatalfitness #mumsfitness
SPECIAL TIMES💖💖 My hubby rarely features on here but I actually wouldn't be able to do half of what I do without his support. 👫 Over the years right from the time I had my dog attack after we had just got married to the daily struggles with our son. I am truly grateful I have him at my side, and I know our boys are thankful for all he does for them although they may not always show it!!🙌 I can't tag him as he's not an Instagram fan, but just wanted to acknowledge him. We often forget to appreciate those closest to us, so remember to take some time to put the spotlight on them.🤩 Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend- we celebrated my brother-in-law's 60th birthday and it was so wonderful to have the whole family together. . . . #keepitreal #realmom #realmum #adhdparenting #begrateful #gratitude #smilemore #appreciation #bethankful #lifelessons #lifelessonslearned #marriage #supportivehubby #strongmums #busymums #toughmums #lifestruggles #womenshealthuk #instahubby #surreymummy #surreymum #surreyblogger #wearewoking #motherhood #parentlife #selfcare #bestme #bestversionofyou

It’s amazing what you can achieve when you don’t over think it and give it a go👊🏻 #FridayFitnessMotivation At the start of training the Bella Fit Mums for Spartan there were some exercises where their mind took over and thought they couldn’t do it. The major ones were the rope climb, rope pull up and down and assisted pull-ups #spartantrainig Now these ladies have overcome their doubts and used their strength to achieve the exercise 🙌🏻#strongmums You too can use your strength to overcome any obstacles, whether in your fitness training or day to day lives #believeinyourself #mumsandbubsfitness . . . . . . #womensfitness #mumsfitness #healthymums #activemums #rolemodels #mumslife #postpartum #motherhood #fitfam #activekids #healthylifestyle #realmums #realmumsfitness #mummymovements #womenwholift #toughmums #pelvicfloorstrength #northernbeachesmums #workoutforhappy #happyhormones #outdoorfitness . .
My mum and I have a love and hate relationship, she definitely made sure that I knew that she was the boss. She would often remind me that I will appreciate all the yelling, advice, discipline and of course her once I become a wife and mother. Well mum, 'I DO'. The day I left my parents care I thought 'life is easy' , 'I got this'. . I was very wrong, I had to learn to be independent and mature very quickly. Growing up, mum worked to provide for all 7 of us whilst dad focused on his ministry. I used to question why my mum was never around, she never attended any of my school activities or even watch me graduate through school and uni. I never considered that she had 7 kids to provide for. Out of all your kids I think I have tested your patience to the max. Mum I appreciate you. You have taught me how to become strong minded. People often question where I get my work ethic from, well now you know. . I could go on and on about how greatful I am for having you as my mother. You have shown me how to conquer any challenge that I have to go through in life, being loyal and tough love. . "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all" - Proverbs 31:29 Keep pressing forward, you are courageous and the shining example of a strong leader in yours and dad's ministry and in our family. Happy 50th birthday mum. We love you always and forever. . #Mumis50 #supermum #fierce #toughlove #realislandmum #mymumisawesome #toughmums

Fall in love with the process and the results will come from TheMotivatedType.com . The Bella Fit Mums put in an awesome effort today at their Strength and Fitness Challenges 👏🏻🙌🏻 #FitnessEvaluationWeek . We finished with a core circuit focusing on the deeper muscles, such as pelvic floor, obliques and deep back muscles #pelvicfloorandcorestrength . There are many reasons too strengthen your core/abdominal muscles postpartum. The core has many layers. The deepest is the pelvic floor. During pregnancy the abdominal wall is lengthened. Post birth the muscles of the lengthened abdominal muscle wall require to assist them to return to their original length and to function correctly. This includes their coordinated action with the pelvic floor, the deep back muscles and diaphragm, as these muscles work together to maintain continence, support pelvic organs and provide spinal stability #womenshealth .
