Life’s-too-short mum

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Fitness Quiz -

You know your body would feel bet­ter with a lit­tle ex­er­cise, but frankly, it’s the last thing you feel like do­ing. And we’re right there with you: who has the spare energy to waste on star jumps right now? The an­swer for you is a fit­ness class you can take your baby to and, if you’re balk­ing at the very word ‘fit­ness’, fo­cus on all the other ben­e­fits you’ll get from go­ing to a meet-up with lots of other mums. From groups that meet for in-park pram-push­ing ac­tion to dance classes with mums wear­ing young­sters in slings and yoga ses­sions where ba­bies get equal rights to space on the mat, the fo­cus is on ev­ery­one en­joy­ing them­selves.

No-one will bat an eye­lid if you need to take a break dur­ing the class to give your baby a quick top-up feed, and there’s al­ways at least one nappy that needs to be changed. And although there’s noth­ing less-than-se­ri­ous about the qual­ity of the work­out you’re get­ting, this is all about ex­er­cis­ing with a smile on your face and hav­ing enough breath left to in­ter­act with your young­ster and fel­low mums. Oh, and there’s al­ways time to chat at the be­gin­ning and end of the ses­sions, so you’ll soon be swap­ping baby sto­ries with your new mum-mates. Ex­er­cise? This feels noth­ing like it! YOU’RE MO­TI­VATED BY… Fun
