Run Down

A few very exciting updates for Baby Bump Fitness. This past week I was featured in a fitness article in Mcleans magazine. Although the reporter told me the article was about interval training, and it is more about general fitness it is still great to be involved. Here is the link- All the Right Moves

I have picked up the soccer unifoms for my daughters soccer team, she is very excited and so am I.

It seems over the past week many of my clients are stressed out. They are tired, frustrated, getting run down and generally overwhelmed. I would normally never mention this but about 90% of them have been feeling like this, an uncanny trend. I cannot explain why and everyone has a different situation, but if you find your self going through this it may be time to take a mini break. Simple things fro mom to do- book a hair appointment, date or spa time. Get your husband to make you dinner, go for coffee with a friend. Bascially just try and break the mundain routine. If you do not do this finding motivation to workout will be extremely difficult. Breaking the routine and/or silence may be just the little boost needed to excel at your fitness goals. Take a week off of fitness or certain chores then return the following week with new vigour.

I do not beleive everyone needs a trainer and having a trainer does not fit into everyones lifestyle- especially a busy moms. You may be ties to the house, work shifts, budgeting. This is actually waht I wish was quoted in teh Mcleans article. Home interval training is the most efficient way for a busy mom to exercise and loose pregnancy pounds.

Like I mentioned last post I have started to ride my bike 1-2x / week again and just enjoy the outside. My husband and I are setting aside time each week for me to talk or bitch so I don't feel underappreciated or bored with the daily grind or serving others.

Great advices to fight fatigue and being moody. I have been feeling like that also for the past week (along with carrying a sinus infection).

I took a day off from any house work on Sunday and decided to do something relaxing during my commute (I spend 2 hours/day in the car commuting!). I rented books on tape. I came home fresh like a flower tonight!

Taking some time off from busy schedule surely worked for me and I am sure, it would work for anyone.

Wow! I like your perspective in working out and staying physically healthy. It's very inspiring for me.

Despite my busy schedule, I try to find time not to skip my fitness routine at home. My sister is like that, too. She found this great idea of having her baby taken cared for by someone while she's doing aerobic moves. When she bartered her skill in website design through Gigant jobs, someone did the babysitting for her daughter, Chelsea. Also, the site that facilitated such services barter got rave Gigats review lately as reported by her. Such a huge help for busy working moms!

Thanks for sharing, Jacqueline! Cheers for being featured in a fitness article in Mcleans magazine!

I like your post and the feel of your blog! :)

By the way, I just uploaded my Quidam photo here and hopefully I can get to win the 2 tickets! I really want to watch the world class acrobats and the magical entertainment of Cirque du Soleil’s Quidam this coming March 9 to 13 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. Have you uploaded your Quidam (stand out photo) yet?

Barbara Christensen said...

I totally agree! I love my HIIT workouts and they get the job done, and get me back to my priorities, the kids, quick. There is no way I could go to the gym anymore, and so it's essential that I get everything in at home. (also enjoyed the All the right moves article!)

A mother knows what’s best for her baby, and keeping fit during pregnancy is a sign of a caring and loving mother. But as you need to exercise your body; does your baby also need to exercise her mind?After all, 70% of the baby’s brain growth occurs during pregnancy! Watch this video to know more.

Congrats on being featured- and I agree, everyone can't always find the time for a personal trainer and at times simply taking some time for yourself is exactly what the doctor ordered.

Hi Jacqueline,
This is my first post here and like to say running is great cardio exercise to burn fat, regulate metabolism and to lose weight. Running increase our stamina and strength and oxygen inhaled gives great amount of energy to lungs and joints.

Dorothy of Oz is sure to be an instant classic for the whole family. The film is due out next year but the buzz being created is undeniable. Between the vastly talented cast and the original music, how could you not be excited! Glee's Lea Michele is in the title role as Dorothy Gale and she will bring such a fresh sound to the legendary character. Let us not forget Martin Short, Bernadette Peters, Kelsey Grammer, Dan Aykroyd, and many more bringing life to both new and older familiar characters!! Dorothy of Oz has all the components to be the new family favorite!
