Don't use having a baby and feeling tired as excuses to avoid exercise. I know from experience that it's easy to say "I don't feel like it" or "baby is a bit unsettled today" or "I can lose weight once baby is a bit older" or "I can get away with my mummy lumps and bumps this year". You just need to put the right importance on yourself and your workouts. The benefits of antenatal and postnatal exercise are well documented and are in fact recommended.

Instead of just sitting and watching tv why not try marching on the spot, lunges, squats, arm dips on the edge of the sofa, knee raises, pulling your tummy in, holding a good posture, bicep curls, triceps kicks, calf raises, plank, press ups, tummy crunches.... there are so many exercises you can do in a relatively small space whilst still watching tv!

Take some time to get outside with your family for some fresh air and a run around. If you have a baby or young child you can go for a nice walk with them in the pram but don't forget to let them get out and have a crawl around too.
As Spring has now finally sprung and Easter is just around the corner, Mum plus One would like to encourage families to get out in the fresh air for a stroll along the Thames riverside from Laleham to Penton Hook Lock and back. It's a lovely way to spend some family time together and make new friends in the Great Outdoors.
Join us at 2pm on Tuesday 31st March 2015 at the Riverside car park in Laleham to set off on a self-led walk (Spelthorne Borough Council walk 6). It's about 3.3 miles in...
