My progression into the realm of dwindling pep is certainly not unexpected, although most definitely unwelcome. This Mom is not at all interested in going gently into that soft night. Rather, I would prefer to challenge myself to overcome the easiness of aging and add fun and adventure into each of my days. Goodness knows, simply to keep up with my on the go kids, it is a necessity!
Although I have kept fairly physically active in the past, a recent foot surgery has put the temporary breaks on my ability to maintain even my slower get up and go, not to mention, has had a less than pleasant effect on my middle mom metabolism. I have no doubt, once I'm back on both feet, I'll require more than positive thinking to get myself back on track.
Having been given an opportunity to explore a book from women's fitness expert, Dustin Maher, Fit Moms For Life, I was curious to see if I would find any information or tips that I might apply to my own situation. With a tag line of, "How to Have Endless Energy to Outplay Your Kids," it was certainly worth a look to learn more!
“An approach to fitness that is well-rounded and sustainable, and makes it easy to fit into the busy lives of mothers is the only program that is going to make a difference,”
Author Dustin Maher's resume is quite impressive. I learned that his efforts to encourage women to adopt the philosophy of self care as the best choice they can make for themselves and their families and of his success in assisting over 5,000 women to transform their lives for the better. From his numerous network television appearances, library of 28 workout DVDs and the lofty goal of helping 1 million Moms make a healthy change for the good by 2015, Maher is certainly full of energy himself. A significant part of his efforts are the formation of Fit Moms For Life communities across the globe.
Although my slow healing process has preventing me from adopting Maher's well constructed workout routines, I was certainly able to avail myself to the philosophies and healthy eating choices clearly outlined within this book. Maher's approach in Fit Moms For Life is a holistic one, encompasses all parts of Mom: mind, body and spirit.
I found great detail about what foods work with, as well as against Moms on a mission for health, including suggested meal plans and tempting, healthy recipes.
A comprehensive exercise routine, designed to be effective for Mom, with helpful detail and step by step photos to serve as a guide.
Armed with personal stories with before and after photos, Dustin takes the reader through the five pillars of fitness: Mindset, Nutrition, Strength Training, Burst Training, and Environment, .ultimately leading to the end goal: Staying Fit for Life.
No More Mom Martyrs
As a admitted Mom Martyr who has been on a journey of my own in regard to self care and rediscovery, I found I was able to easily connect with the message of this book and do recommend it for those currently on or aspiring to begin their own journey to once again discover, celebrate and care for the woman within the Mom.
