Be Inspired by her story here!

The NEM 12 week challenge came at a perfect time for me. I was a new mom with a 12 week old daughter, juggling my time between her and her two older brothers (aged 3 and 4 years). I had not had time to concentrate on myself for what felt like a long time, and exercise and healthy eating had not been enough of a consideration for me since I had become a mother.

I knew I could not make changes unless they involved my whole family in one way or another. The 12 week challenge gave me the inspiration to look after myself and work out in ways so we could all be healthier. Two of my goals involved my children and family, both to integrate them into exercise and to spend quality time with them.

No Excuse Mom has helped me achieve all of my goals. I had not been going to the classes before the challenge, but have gained so much from attending. Not only can I exercise with my children present, but I have also discovered new playgrounds to take my children to. I have also increased my own well-being by spending time with other mums. I hope this time will also inspire my children to realise exercise is a regular activity.

Along with the classes, I have completed workouts at home with my children there and at nap times. At home, I also looked at our diet which had become very reliant on carbohydrates. My husband has been very supportive in changing this. This has benefitted us two directly, and our children who now see us eating a wider variety of foods and are encouraged to try new things. Mealtimes have become a more fun time of day.

My motivation to focus on myself has made me conscious of what I eat and why I snack in particular. I have tried to ensure I am busy and occupied to avoid unnecessary eating. I think the change to my diet has been the significant factor in the changes I have seen during the challenge. These changes will inspire me to continue eating well, making good choices and making time for myself going forward.
