What's one tip you'd give to moms struggling to make time for physical activity?

Firstly, don't feel guilty if you can't always find the time. Guilt is a serious motivation killer. Stay positive and do something achievable (like a 30 minute walk with the pram everyday). Or find a friend to exercise with. It is always easier to stay fit in the company of others.

What's your best advice for moms trying to get healthy?

Don't search for the latest diet or magical formula to get thin... just choose to live a healthy life-style. I am a firm believer in the old-fashioned way, eat your veggies and do some exercise. Again, get rid of those feelings of guilt and remain positive - this will help empower you to make the right choices!

What motivates you to stay active while raising a family?

I remind myself that exercise is stimulating, gives you more energy and helps relieve stress (very important as a mum). I also remind myself that my little girl is watching every move I make, and it is of the utmost importance that I set a good example of a healthy and balanced lifestyle for her. Finally, it feels so good being fit and eating food that serves my body well! Life is what you make it.
