The things this mama does while bubs is sleeping just metres away 🀣🀣 Soooo happy to squeeze in some handstand practise! Used the wall because there isnt alot of free space in our hotel room (well not enough that I wont crash into shit when I fall πŸ˜‰). This is abit crooked but I held it unsupported and without touching the wall for 10 seconds!!! Slowly but surely getting there yaaaaay!! πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š #opfitmum #fitmum #mumlife #hotellife #workout #justmove #exercise #kmlnz #upsidedown #handstand #balance #strength #practise #practisemakesperfect #calisthenics #wannabeninja #wannabegymnast #newskills

SEATED shoulder workout with CANS!! Seriously underestimated the burn in my shoulders from lifting only 500g canned food! Such an effective upper body workout and I didnt even leave the chair! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ Exercise sequence》》》》 20 reps lateral shoulder raise
20 reps lateral shoulder circles
20 reps shoulder press

30sec rest, then repeat!! πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ I got through 6 rounds of this before it was a struggle to get those cans up!
I liked solely focussing on these movements with short rest periods because with a lighter resistance/weight, smashing out the reps was the best way for my muscles to get to work!
Proof yet again that fancy equipment is simply a luxury to exercise, you can make anything work!!

Cold and wet here in Perth so the best excuse to give this amazing woman @kaisafit toilet paper workout a go - with some of my own additions too!
This woman is actually incredible, something I aspire to - a beast in the gym and also an absolute weapon at making some gangsta as workouts from home.
Fitness can work for you, anytime, anywhere!! Give these exercises a go and tag @opfitmum so we can enjoy together 😎

What a day!! House is packed up and we are settled into our hotel room for the night.

My fitness has definitely taken a backseat the last few days but this wee gem is perfect for inside with limited space!! πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ #opfitmum #fitmum #fitspo #fitfam #fitness #indoorworkout #hotelworkout #justmove #exercise #fitness #noexcuses #squat #pressups #lunge #fitnessaddict #getitdone

All too relevant for this mama right now!! 😩😩 In the process of moving back to NZ and I feel exhausted!
So important to make sure I am still looking after myself at busy times like these. And despite working out being my addiction/stress relief, I will scale back over the next few days so I dont burn out!

Some of the things I am trying to do over the coming days as we move are: βœ”rest
βœ”take some timeout and relax (today Im laying in the sun for 30mins instead of working out) βœ”get good nutritious food in despite choc bars etc being an easy option for an energy boost
βœ”up my intake of apple cider vinegar
βœ”up my intake of wholefoods capsules
βœ”stay hydrated!

When I am run down I tend to catch some sort of bug so heres hoping the above helps fend them off!! #opfitmum #fitmum #mumlife #moving #antistress #unwind #lookafteryourself #listentoyourbody #rest #relax #recover #happybody #happymind #happysoul #kmlnz

UTTER BULLSH*T!!! 😑😑😑 Scrolling through facebook the other day and saw this post come up and it INFURIATED ME!! There is NO SUCH THING as an ideal body weight!! Particularly in relation to height!!! Weight is just a number and can be represented in various body shapes and sizes!! Also muscle weighs more than fat so you could be quite "heavy" as such but be in great shape!! I am 5"2 and I am certainly not the "ideal weight" this STUPID image shows!! The page sharing this had over 100k followers and it really got to me that they were sharing this with so many people, many who would take it as gospel and believe their weight should reflect what the picture says!! YOU create your OWN IDEAL weight - it is not predicted by a number or dictated by some stupid site claiming to advocate health and wellness!! πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š #opfitmum #fitmum #fitness #exercise #health #wellness #rant #angry #weight #height #thisiscrap #besmart #besensible #doyou #healthyweight #differentshapesandsizes #numbersdontmatter

Are you ok?

Lets remove the stigma associated with mental illness or troubles and help each other out. β™‘

πŸ’₯Grab ya BEACH TOWEL its workout time!! πŸ’₯

Used my beach towel yesterday as a base for the exercises I did!

6 ROUNDS:
βœ”6 reps burpee jumpovers (using the towel to jump over)
βœ”6 reps deep squat jumps (using the edges of the towel for squat width)
βœ”6 ab walkouts (using the towel to mark walkout distance)

Easy as that!! And of course I repeated the 6 rounds again after a quick breather! πŸ‘Š

SPLITS STRETCHING.... opfitmum style! πŸ€—

This was actually quite hard to film in a short space of time, I may have to do a live if anyone is interested?
This is simply what I find has helped me increase my flexibility - it is by no means pro advice, just an insight to how I have managed to get back to doing the splits! πŸ‘Š

There are a few other stretches but will save them for another video!

ALWAYS stretch with warm muscles to avoid the risk of injury (I did this post workout) and no stretch should feel horribly painful. I hold each stretch for approx 15secs and repeat the same stretch a few times before moving to the next. And I obviously stretch both legs the same. βœ”

Let me know what you think!

I get asked a lot - Why "operation/op" fitmum?

Post giving birth I made it a goal of mine to get fit and in shape again by myself without the need for a trainer or a gym. Being ex military, the word operation sprung to mind because just about everything we did in the Army was named "operation" something!! So it seemed fitting, and operation fitmum was created. Whilst it wasnt a career I wanted to continue to pursue, I absolutely LOVED the physical training aspects of my service - I was pushed to limits I didnt even know existed, I developed physical and mental strength, and I learnt a vast array of training techniques (taught by some of the fittest people I know) which I like to refer back to in my #opfitmum workouts!

So there ya have it, that is why I named my journey this. 😎

BLUEBERRIES πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™ A huge antioxidant concentration in such a little berry!! Just sooo good for you!! Rich in vitamins C and E also, these bad boys have sooo many health benefits!! Me and my little lady try eat a handful of these most days - yes they tend to be expensive but we add frozen ones to shakes and breakfast, and snack on fresh ones where we can.

RUN LIKE THE WIND πŸ’¨πŸ’¨πŸ’¨ If you like to run, give this interval training session a go!
Try run each interval as fast as you can with the respective rest period after each one!
Great way to up the intensity to a standard run, and will help towards speed & fitness gains!

Forgot to post this deadly leg session from the other day!! LEGS ON FIRE...πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ 12 kettlebell swings
10 curtsy lunge/squat
10 deadlift jumps

Absolute leg burner... jelly legs up in here!! As many rounds as you can manage in 15mins!! #opfitmum #fitmum #fitspo #athomeworkout #backyardworkout #kettlebells #legday #legburner #quads #hammies #glutes #strength #hiit #fitness #exercise #legs #cantwalk

Blown away by the response to my splits video!! 😁

So due to popular demand I am working on a video to show the stretches I focussed on to increase my flexibility.
Please note I am not a pro by any means, these will just be an insight to how I got there!

Stay tuned!

πŸŠβ€β™€οΈSWIMMINGπŸŠβ€β™€οΈ Recovery session for mummys legs this morning - although its harder work than you think chasing a toddler around the pool!! I loved swimming when I was pregnant, and this lil lady of ours is obsessed with water!! We have had her in lessons since she was 6mths old and the water is her happy place!
Hopefully she takes after daddy who was once a top lifeguard and surf champ! πŸ’¦πŸ’¦πŸ’¦ #opfitmum #fitmum #fitfam #mumlife #toddlerlife #waterbaby #swimming #pool #qualitytime #recovery #water #fun #happy #exercise #fitness #startthemyoung #waterwise #watersmart #justkeepswimming

βœ”GOAL ACHIEVEDβœ”

My grin at the end says it all 😁

So happy to be comfortable in all 3 split transitions now (final transition still a little bent)!! No pain and I even pointed my toes πŸ˜‰

Who wants me to share my stretching routine?

Make the most of your SURROUNDINGS and squeeze in some exercise!! πŸ€Έβ€β™€οΈπŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈπŸ€Έβ€β™€οΈ Playgrounds and established parks are my faves for this sort of thing! Keeping an eye on the lil one makes it tricky to do alot but i still got a few attempts of these exercises done! (Excuse the awkward toe to bar technique, I was kicking sand all over my face and then tried keeping my legs off the ground). Happy Sunday 😎😎😎 #opfitmum #fitmum #mumlife #toddlerlife #outdoors #playground #park #getmoving #justmove #exercise #fitness #fitspo #barwork #pullups #toetobar #pikehold #boxjumps #strength #practisemakesperfect

πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ Absolutely LOVE this, shared by mega kiwi inspiration - endurance athlete @lisatamati !! Can be applied to any form of exercise! We all move differently, we all have different abilities but it really doesnt matter so long as you are getting it done! "JUST GET UP AND MOVE"
