So this summer I have started The 30 Day Shred, which is proving physically challenging as well as running four times a week with Amber, my ten year old. I will also be making sure I continue with Pilates. All this activity has also inspired my husband to start running again, so he heads off across the fields opposite our house, most mornings, with our eldest son. Meanwhile our younger son works out regularly to ensure he is at peak fitness, due to being on the rugby, hockey and Athletics teams at school. Just as Jo Whiley said in her interview in Style, active and sporty children won't be rushing to try smoking. Another worry of mine as the mother of teenagers. So a healthy, fit lifestyle for all of our family can only be a good thing and with major newspapers championing realistic body shapes, I hope my daughters will be confident in their bodies.
Until next time, take care,
