OK, I’m excited.
Ever since we launched (back in 2009!), nonstopmama has always been about sharing great ways of helping busy mamas (and not only mamas!) feel our fabulous, healthiest best.
With the emphasis on the healthy. And the OUR – as in, what’s right for each of us is always going to be individual.
Over the years, as a beauty, health and fitness journalist I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing countless personal trainers, fitness and nutrition experts on the subject of healthy living. I’ve stood in awe on photo shoots while experts demonstrated their moves in London workout studios, high-tech New York gyms and on the beach in LA (very Hollywood). Inspiring? For sure. But it can also be intimidating.
Because, for us (non-experts!) to make it happen (with or without access to a gym or health club), as part of our lives, it’s got to be REAL.
I know, from reading the hundreds of comments we’ve had on the health and fitness giveaways we’ve run on these pages, how many of us share that simple, real life mission: to find our ‘fit and healthy, feel-good fabulous’. To feel like us, at our healthy best.
I’m all about encouraging other busy mamas (and not only mamas!) to find those strategies, tips and tricks that truly make a difference and can, realistically, be made part of our daily lives. Whether it’s making time (and finding the space!) to roll out a Pilates mat at home and doing a great DVD; fitting in some heart rate increasing cardio (even if that means a brisk walk to the supermarket, or walking the dog) or learning which snacks will help to provide a long-lasting energy boost AND benefit us, nutritionally (as in a handful of almonds over a packet of the children’s Haribo’s. Been there – more times than I’d care to admit! ).
So I couldn’t have been more thrilled when nonstopmama was invited by Boots to co-host a #bootsmakeithappen Twitter chat with the wonderful and incredibly inspiring website Hip & Healthy!
I would LOVE it if you would join Sadie of Hip & Healthy and I this Thursday, 6 February, for a lunchtime chat between 12.30 – 1.30 pm!
Let’s get together on Twitter and talk all things making it happen in 2014, for us to be our healthiest best!
(Oh, and there are some Boots treats along the way for lucky tweeters – all info below! ).
This is a sponsored post, and nonstopmama is delighted to be partnering with Boots and Hip & Healthy for this Twitter chat!
