This post is brought to you in collaboration with Poise®, but my thankfulness for Poise® is all my own. #MyPoiseMoment #MommyLife. Here I’m sharing a few tips to help moms stay active with their kids and take on life’s changes with ease.
I grew up in a house full of girls. And while we were all athletic – in gymnastics and cheerleading, I’m surprised by how active two little boys can be. Even at ages five and three, they are balls of energy ready to take on almost anything. Oftentimes, it’s all I can do to keep up.
Before I had kids I would work out at the gym at least four days a week. Aerobics, elliptical, and running were my personal favorites. Now, I enjoy low-impact exercise but I struggle with anything that involves running or too much bouncing around. Why? Well, let’s just say that labor and delivery were a little hard on me. I wouldn’t change it for the world because I love my boys, but your body changes when you deliver a couple of babies.
Moms can Stay Active with Poise and Confidence
Now that the boys are older I want to get more active again. We were invited to a trampoline park recently for my niece’s birthday party. I purchased a half an hour for myself to bounce on the trampolines. And I’ve finally found something that will help me do the things I love to do – Poise® Liners. Even with all the bouncing around and chasing my kids, Poise allowed me to play and have fun despite my mommy issues.
With Poise in my backpack I can run after my boys without worry and I plan to incorporate more running into my schedule next spring. See this girl?
I want to be her in 2016. That’s my fitness goal for the new year – spend more time running so I can get into better shape. Plus, running is a huge stress reliever for me. I need less stress and more exercise. Reader, can you relate? Any mommy issues holding you back? I know. I’m right there with you.
