Home yoga session!
I'm really enjoying being in my family home with mum & dad while we look for somewhere to live up north. I love bringing River downstairs in the morning and saying 'good morning' to mum and dad & seeing their reaction. It's also lovely being in my childhood garden & listening to the birds, doing some light yoga!! I'm so stiff from the gym yesterday as I did a full body weight training session & doing some yummy yoga poses just really helped me iron out those stiff spots!
I have 4 weeks till I get hitched & tomorrow I'm cutting sugar right back. High protein, low sugar (only natural) which is something I try and aim for as much as possible when in training but but but breastfeeding makes me wanna smash cake & chocolate all day long! So I welcome tomorrow. I did yoga tonight & I felt connected to my body, my breathing and felt truly grateful for my health & surroundings!
By slowing down, listening to your breathing , that energy you have inside yourself, you realise you have so many possibilities & so much potential and taking time to slow down makes you more grateful for things - small things and big things - you think before action, you connect to your being, you discover who you truly are and where you want to go...
I find yoga helps me slow down and even if it's for just 15 minutes I find peace and clarify. ☀️🌸🌼☀️

SHOWING UP 🌸🌼
"Just show up, as you are. You don’t have to look or feel great. You don’t have to be prepared for each challenge or know all the hows of every situation. You don’t have to be fearless, or have all the answers, or be 100% ready. Nobody is any of these things. Nobody ever was. It’s not about being perfect at all. You just have to show up, as you are, despite all the objections and insecurities of your mind, despite each and every fear that threatens to hold you back, despite the limitations and criticisms other will place on you. The hell with it all. This is your life, your journey, your adventure, and all it’s asking of you is to show for it, as you are. That’s enough. That’s more than enough. That’s everything." ~~Scott Stabile

Well 5:20am to be annoying exact, I went for a 7k run! Fresh English air and beautiful morning sunshine! River is still asleep at 8:10am.. so I have basically had a morning to myself running, chatting & laughing with my parents, yoga in the garden and tea drinking. It's been so lush just having this spot of time for me. You know when I get that time, nothing bothers me, nothing feels as stressful. My baby might have a needy day, or cry or it may rain, the day might not go to plan, but I'm less bothered, everything is better when I have exercised and had that time for me! I'm so excited for her to wake up now as she is such a smiler in the morning... I keep creeping in the bedroom to see if she is stiriring.. but fast asleep! Not surprisingly after 2 big days... House hunting and wedding dress shopping!! 💋☀️

4am! Yes it gets light here at 4am! It's crazy! I'm in my dressing gown!
I woke at 3:45am after feeding River and couldn't get back to sleep, so I got up! Now it's 5:15am and I have been so productive! Lots of admin done, milk expressed ready to keep practicing this bottle feeding, lots of cups of warm water drunk and yoga stretches to help my achy neck and shoulders.
I was a wreak yesterday with tiredness and such a grouch! My poor mum and Owen... Eek!
I think out of the 12 weeks of being a mum the last few days is the most tired I have ever felt! Perhaps being back at my family home - I'm able to release and it's all catching up with me.. who knows..! But this morning having a few hours to myself and getting sh*t done - I feel much calmer and ready for the day!! Today we go to Sheffield house hunting for a place to live for a while. Why Sheffield? Because it's near the Peak District, I love the city, it's my University city and I have fond memories there. I love the Northern friendliness and I'm gonna teach yoga there! ❤️

Long summer nights with lots and lots of light! ☀️☀️🌞
I love that it doesn't get dark will 9:30pm/10pm in the UK summer! You can sit out with a vino and just watch the beautiful plane trails in the sky..! Not so good for settling a baby to sleep though...

3.5k run and arms! 💪
This was yesterdays workout!
A 4k village run and back in the garden for a few arm workouts.
You know I love just weights but I didn't have any so instead this is what I did:
💪 3 sets of 20 rep press ups (on my knees - I'm not good at the other ones yet..)
💪 3 sets of 20 yoga flow (downward dog - plank - upward dog). Great for arm strength and core.
💪 2 sets of a variation of arm movements which require you to hold your arms in the air for 3 -5 minutes or longer if you can hack it to use gravity to tone. Your arms will tired but KEEP THEM UP! This is a great way for feminine looking arms.
💪 3 sets of 100 punches in the air! Relieves stress and helps shake excess fatty tissue from the arms.
The video is dark... I'm afraid the English sky is not like the Australian one I'm used too.. lol.

Doing exercise to combat jet lag!! ✈️✈️✌️
4k run.
3 sets of 15 rep squat.
3 sets of 15 rep sumo squats.
3 sets of 15 rep lunge dips.
Plank 1 minute 20 seconds.
Yoga stretches for hamstrings.
Headstand for clarity.
✌️
I slept 1130pm till 615am with 2 feeds in the night for Miss River! She is sleeping loads and I'm sure she is really jet lagged!
I was sad yesterday as I missed our apartment, her routine, her change mat, - home comforts basically. But I need to remind myself we are her routine not objects and possessions.
Also working out is my mental clarity, me keeping my body healthy and feeling positive and ready for the adventures ahead!
Starting the day this way enhances the way I approach my day, the way I act around my loved ones and keeps me physically, mentally and emotionally fit!!

Traveling with a 10 week year old! 🌸❤️
It went ace to be fair!
I guess because she is not able to walk and run around yet it's much easier.
The first leg of our journey was 7 hours 15 mins to Singapore, and River slept the whole way!! (Well woke for a quick nappy change and boobfeed) and then straight back to sleep. Amazing!
The break in Singapore airport was good. I had a 30 minute gym workout and daddy took River to the sunflower garden! So many amazing things to see and do in Singapore airport! Then after a power shower and goodies in the lounge we got ready for trip 2. A 13 hour flight from Singapore to London. River sleapt on and off but spent much of it awake too.. however... She didn't cry once! She sat smiling and watching people and playing with me. I had to hold her and eat at but I was so grateful she didn't kick off travelling. I had a feeling she would he ok, as shes such a placid little girl .. (so far..) x
We were fortunate to go business class (something that may not happen for a long time again) and of course makes a different as you get a flat bed with Singapore airlines and I could sleep next to River, so on the first flight I actually got almost 4 hours sleep. We had the stroller to walk around the airport with but to be fair the baby carrier was what she wanted the most (just wanting to be held). Those things are great! Also when we got to London , we got to the boarder and got chatting to some guy who thought it would be suitable to tell me to support my child's head more in the carrier!!! Oooh... a stranger telling me how to hold my baby... Did not go down well!! 😠
Overall a good experience and I'm so grateful x

I bloody love this pose!! Shoulder Stand!
I ate a chocolate & peanut butter brownie and felt a little bloated and uncomfortable - stupidly eating it on an empty tummy!! 😁
Then I did this yoga pose (shoulder stand) and instantly felt so much better!! Held it for 30 breathes. (A breath is a whole inhale and exhale). Such a good yoga pose for many things and digestion is one of them!! The change in gravity helps the bowels move freely which aids digestion significantly.
Have fun with this one! ✌️

Press ups on a stability ball! 👊👊👊
To make this more challenging you simply roll the stability ball more towards your feet so you have to push more of your body weight up. Here I'm doing 3 sets of 20 at medium level as I ease into it. Tomorrow I might try the stability ball towards my feet and try 3 sets of 10.
Here you tone and strengthen not only your chest and shoulders but you work your core too! Something many of us mums want back post pregnancy!
Have you started your exercise routine this week? What's your goal? Flick back to my videos so far on ➡️ legs & butt, biceps, ➡️shoulders, & back and➡️ yoga for abdominals. Doing these three simple exercise routines a couple of times a week each will really make a difference to how you feel post baby! We may feel tired .... But exercise gives you energy!! And if your super super tired... Take a gentle walk.
Hashtag Fit in the 4th and show me what your doing ! 👊⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️

Abdominal yoga exercises!
💮💮💮💮💮💮💮
... And by the way there are heaps but here are a few I like to do in a fitness style.
Again not good to jump into these if you had abdominal seperation so take your time.
Do these everyday!! We want to feel good.
We want to be healthy for our babies.
We want to be 'fit in the 4th'!!
Have fun!
A) downward dog to plank (back and fourth - go slow and breathe each different move to make it effective. 20 on each side.
B) Three legged dog to plank. Again the above applies.
C) Knee to nose - 20 or more on each side - I like to do a few sets of these. You can even take this to a pigeon pose afterwards.
D) Cat Cow classic stretch to aid digestion and get things moving!
E) Side plank (knee down - hold for 5-10 breaths each side)
F) Side plank - stack your feet! Again breath and hold. You'll work your arms here too
G) Stretch and get baby involved :) babies love yoga!
❤️❤️❤️❤️

Digestion & removing toxins!?
🙅🚫⛔☢️🙅
Upside down yoga poses are great for this!! 💮 Improves Digestion
When you allow the effects of gravity to be reversed on your digestive organs, you will help to move stuck material, release trapped gases, as well as improve blood flow to the all important digestive organs -- increasing nutrient absorption and delivery to your cells. Again, if you combine headstand with focused belly breathing you will have a double whammy effect.
💮 Stimulates The Lymphatic System
Your lymph system can also be called your garbage dump system. This network of nodes and fluids help to remove waste products from your blood. When you flip onto your head you will be directly stimulating your lymphatic system and thereby helping to remove toxins from your body.
💮 Don't worry if your not into head stands ' rest your legs against a wall or try a shoulder stand.
I need this after my burger today.....😁

I wish!! .....
😋
I wish chips were our friends..
I wish chocolate was our best source of vitamin & minerals..
I wish cake was protein!! 🤔🤔
This was me a couple of years ago at Sydney airport!
Excited as I love chips!
Big fat proper chips.
Why am I  posting this...?
Because this is all I wanna eat, since giving birth and breastfeeding!!
Chips, burgers, chocolate, cake coffee and treats galour!
It's not easy to eat super healthy all day every day being sleep deprived, being on maternity leave , breastfeeding and trying to workout!
I believe you should not deprive yourself but I also believe we should be mindful with our food choices too!
It's so hard.. even me a qualified experienced Nutritionist!
Yes. Sure. I can make healthy alternatives... But sometimes I don't want too! Sometimes I want the milky dairy milk chocolate instead of the bitter cacao dark stuff, sometimes I want white potato chips instead of sweet potato!! Sometimes I wanna take my daughter out to cafes and eat cake and drink coffee!
It's been super hard for a sweet tooth like me.
I train hard but it is 80% nutrition and 20% exercise! Especially to get your post pregnant abdominals back.
Don't be hard on yourself ladies enjoy some cake, drink some coffee - but do it mindfully, slowly and really enjoy every taste. Chew your food..This will help your have less in the long run and really enjoy those chips/chocolate & cake moments.
Also walk, walk and walk more..
HAPPY FRIDAY. ❤️❤️

Core post-partum!
🙅🙅🙅🙅🙅
Did you know after pregnancy you shouldn't do sit ups that involve you sitting all the way up! Not for a while yet anyway.
The core muscles are recovering and more then likely still weak from being stretched. The ones I'm doing here are a little more friendly but still work the core and tone the mid section up! However I'm 8 weeks post baby and I'm only just introducing core exercises again. My abs were not ready till now and I definitely recommend waiting untill you are ready or have seen a health professional. The exercise here I also wouldn't recommend untill your core is ready. How do you know if it's ready?? Look up the abdominal seperation test. Many women have to wait a while, but things you can do to help your core in the mean time are A) WALKING - especially pushing a pram. The extra load works those abs. B) Cardio of any kind really whether that's cross trainer, bike, power walking, jogging etc.. - great for weight shift and using the large core muscle. It's not all about sit ups.
C) Eat less sugar! Who finds this hard?? Me!! .

Always changing..
💐🏵️💐🏵️💐🏵️💐🏵️
“Change is not only inevitable, but always happening. When you truly embrace this concept of change being constant, the only thing left to do is grow, detach, venture inwards, touch the spirit and find your source — the one responsible for keeping you grounded through the ever-changing seasons of life.” — Julie Weiland.
