I have been fit all my life. Pre pregnancy, I even had a personal trainer. I was a size 10, and I felt and looked great.
Then I got pregnant. 6 months of sickness and debilitating tiredness followed and as a Director in a fast paced start up, all my energy went into keeping my Team and business afloat. There was no time, (or energy), for exercising. Then there was birth. A physical marathon and body blow of epic proportions. Then breastfeeding. Constant, 24/7, exhausting. Then the toddler tasks.
For the last 3 years I have not exercised. The world of yoga and lycra leggings is a world I no longer know. More than that, it is a world in which I do not feel I belong. Pre pregnancy my motivation was to try and fashion a 6 pack. That goal is long gone (and quite frankly, one I care very little about now!), so where was I going to find my new motivation?
