Balancing Baby and Better Health: Tips for Finding Time to Get In Shape

mother and baby

Hey new mums! We get it - balancing life with a baby and staying healthy can feel like quite the tightrope act! But guess what? If you make it simple, you can do it! Here are some tips to help you find that sweet spot:

🍽️ Plan Your Meals: 

Don’t wait to prep your meals until it is time to eat, you might find it too difficult.  Prep beforehand, when it’s not so difficult.  Get ahead with nutritious meal prep, whether you're doing it solo or with a helping hand. Cook in batches and freeze meals. Cook one time, enjoy the food many times! Keep your body fuelled with goodness.

⏲️ Quick and Easy Recipes: 

No need for hours in the kitchen. Simple, speedy recipes are your new best friends. Examples are stir-frys, omlettes, soups lean meat and veg. 

🍏 Snack Smart: 

Keep those healthy snacks within arm's reach for those unexpected hunger attacks. Think fruit, nuts, carrots with hummus dip, boiled eggs.

💤 Nap Time Hustle: 

When your baby's napping, make it "me-time." Exercise, shower, sleep or just take a well-deserved breather. The chores can wait.

🚶‍♀️ Walks with Baby: 

Enjoy the fresh air and get moving with strolls featuring your little sidekick. You don’t have to walk for hours, even just a short stroll can do wonders!

🤝 Community Connection:

 Connect with others in your local mums and bubs group . Or go online for support and camaraderie. 

🎯 Realistic Goals:

 Your routine may look different now, and that's perfectly okay. Set achievable goals and celebrate every step of progress. For example, aiming to lose 2 kgs per month until you have reached your goal weight is a reasonable goal.

🍽️ Mindful Eating: 

Make mealtimes a mindful experience by savouring each bite without distractions.

🏡 Delegate Chores: 

Share the household tasks with your partner or consider some extra assistance. Even once a month is a bonus

🙌 Embrace Imperfection:

Understand that some days will be more challenging than others. It's okay to adapt, none of us are perfect. And show yourself some kindness.

Your journey as a new parent is a unique one. Finding balance takes time. Keep moving forward, and remember, you've got the power to embrace every moment of this incredible process. You're amazing! 💪❤️

"I'm loving it so far.. I'm already down from in weight and I feel great :)  Not exaggerating when I say this is the best purchase I ever made .. can't wait to get to my first mini goal of 65kgs then set my new goal of 60kgs :) .. so far it's been life changing, thank you so much!! It has literally boosted my milk supply. I used to pump 160mls and now I average 240mls .. I've never been able to get that."

"I discovered In Shape Mummy Health Shakes not long after my second baby was born. He has an intolerance to dairy so I was looking to find something that was safe for breastfeeding, and also vegan friendly. I have recently started a detox program with the help of a naturopath. She was so impressed with the ingredients that she has encouraged me to continue having it! In Shape Mummy has not only helped me lose the 26 kgs I put on in pregnancy, but it’s helped me nourish my body when I’ve been time poor and sleep deprived. It’s the only shake that I actually enjoy the taste of! My breakfast everyday includes ice, almond milk, water, a banana and my In Shape Mummy (my current fave is the caramel fudge!). At 11 months postpartum I feel great! And my breastfeeding journey is still going strong - my milk is in perfect supply for what Bub needs. I cannot recommend In Shape Mummy Health Shakes more highly!”

"I have lost over 30kg with In Shape Mummy Health Shakes, exercise and a complete diet change. ⁠⁠ I started at size 22 and am a loose size 12 at the moment… and nearly a 10! ⁠I feel so much better! With my injuries in my spine, pelvis and knee my weight loss has been the best thing for my pain. ⁠
7-8 months ago I couldn’t have even imagined I could drop this much weight! The change in my life has been insane! ⁠ My advice to other mums is “stick with it and don’t give up!” ⁠ Thanks so very much for your In Shape Mummy Health Shakes. They are the best thing for mums on the go and while breastfeeding as well. Words can not express how grateful I am with my weight loss. I couldn’t of started this without your shakes. My life is forever changed." ⁠
