You can think of overall fitness, and therefor a healthy lifestyle, as a vehicle.
And that's vehicle need four wheels.
If you miss out any of the four wheels then it's just not going to drive straight.
Let me tell you what the four wheels are ...
1: Cardio - doing your classes, going for jogs / hikes / runs / swims and cycles.
2: Resistance - the bit lot's of mums leave out. Doing some sort of bodyweight (or dumbbells etc) exercise is super-important. Check the link to the fitness article I found below just on that topic for women like you
3: Nutrition - you can't out-run a bad diet. You don't need to tell me that you need to fill yourself with decent stuff. Aim 80% o the time so that you don't beat yourself up over that big bit of carrot cake!
4: Rest and recovery - get your 7 or 8 hours sleep, and take gaps between exercising to let your body repair.
Here's a link to an article on why mums need to include resistance training in their schedule.
Thanks for reading.
Last thing, my new TriPlan product launches for real tomorrow (Friday). You can still get the reduced early buyers price up until midnight tonight. And it looks after all four wheels without you thinking.
