I can’t believe I’ve been a mom for almost 9 months now! These have been some of the best months of my life but sometimes I feel totally burnt out. I’m glad I got a chance to read Fit Moms For Life: How To Have Endless Energy To Outplay Your Kids by Dustin Maher. I’ve been lucky enough to have lost all of my baby weight and I believe that breastfeeding has played a major role in this accomplishment. However, I’m afraid I’ll gain some of the weight back once I wean. Reading this book has given me the motivation to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle as a busy mom.
In the book Maher discusses the 5 pillars of his fitness philosophy. These include
-Mindset: Believing you can make a change in your life. If you see yourself as a healthy and fit momma then you can achieve it!
- Nutrition: In order to lose weight you have to eat healthy. This doesn’t mean starving yourself. Eat 4-5 small nutritious meals a day.
- Strength Training: Strengh training helps build muscles, burn calories, and tone your whole body.
-Burst Training - This type of training goes from a low intensity workout to burst of high intensity. There is evidence that this type of workout is much better than the regular cardio workouts.
-Environment: You control what types of food you have in your house and what type of activities your family participates in.
I really think that this book can help moms get in the right direction of looking and feeling their best. Sometimes we as moms put everybody else’s needs before our own. However, if we’re fit and have energy not only can we benefit but the whole family can too! Reading stories of the 31 ladies who have been able to transform their lives has been very inspriational. I encourage anybody (moms, dads, young or old) to read this book if they want to look and feel great and have the confidence they deserve.
