time flies when you're being a mum

if you’re anything like me, you find it difficult to even find time to have a wash, there’s always something more pressing. Here I’m hoping to encourage myself and you to put yourself first a bit more!

Mums' Days Fit Club

I’ve always been in the camp where the best supplements should come from our food rather than taking vitamin tables. In fact, when I was pregnant I blogged quite a bit about what to eat to ensure you get all the vitamins and minerals vital for pregnancy, even for avoiding stretch marks!

These days I’m still the same but provided the source is good quality, I’ve found it can definitely help to have some extra supplements in your diet.

5 best supplements for better health

There are certain things I try to introduce into my diet every day, some of which are supplements, and I thought I’d talk you through some of my 5 favourites… (more…)

Well this is the moment I’ve been working towards/dreading…the Protest bikinis haul post!

Protest bikinis - haul and competition


When I started working with Protest back in May, my personal goal for the Mums’ Days Fit Club was to be “bikini ready” for our holidays. And part of being bikini ready meant I needed to deal with some of my own body hangups. As with everyone, there are bits that I really don’t like.

It’s Summertime! Pass me the Processco…oh yes, sorry, wrong post. This post is a Mums’ Days Fit Club post so it’s all about healthy drinks to enjoy in the sun without your goals going to pot!

Smoothie Recipes and Healthy Drinks for the summer!

Now before you think I’m getting all high and mighty on yo’ ass, my biggest vice in life is coffee with cream and anything bubbly (preferably with alcohol in it), so this is as much a list of ideas for me as it might be for you. But I hope you can take some inspiration from it and from knowing I struggle with not drinking my calories, especially when the sun is out and Barbie is on. So here are some alternatives that do work, I promise! (more…)

Exercises to do at home


Protest Haul and competition

06 Jul, 2015

Welcome to this week’s Mums’ Days Fit Club…we’re into the final straight now with less than a month before we set off for our holidays! So this week I want to talk about exercise and more precisely, exercises to do at home. When you’re a busy mum, juggling loads of different jobs and duties, sometimes getting that hour to workout just ain’t going to happen.

Protest haul competition and exercises to do at home

After last week’s #MDFitClub party I’ve got renewed vigour to really get fit and reach my goal. I’ve got myself an accountability buddy, I’ve reassessed my goals and I’m feeling really motivated! So, thank you to everyone who came to the party last week. If you would like to come to the pre-holiday Facebook party, it’s on Wednesday, 29th July at 8pm on the Mums’ Days Facebook Page. Sign up here and click “going” for your chance to win loads more prizes from the Protest Women’s Range, and a good ol’ chin wag about holidays and getting the confidence to get out in your swimmers!
