I struggle to keep motivated when it comes to exercises. Any ideas for a fitness challenge to try to keep interested? Aside from going to the gym what do other mums do to keep active and fit?

Ask your question

  • I have a Fitbit – you can challenge others to have the most steps or reach your own goals – very motivating. At a party on the weekend two of my Fitbit pals who had never met were there and had an instant connection!



  • I enjoy dancing when no one else is home.



  • The annual MS mud run is on shortly. That’s always fun. Get some of your friends to do it with you, you’ll have a ball. Other than that, simple additions to make what you do do a bit harder. Eg ankle weights when walking. Increases calorie burn without too much effort



  • a simple little pedometer to count your steps while setting goals.



  • I have started picking up my daughter from school driving to a park and we go for a walk before we pick up the smaller ones.



  • Ive got a family group together this year to do the colour run at Flemington race track Melbourne; now I have something to train for; its months away, but is a good goal and great to be apart of with my children and family



  • find yourself something beautiful in a small size or plan a trip for when you lose it



  • Have a goal and small increases every day. Say you go jogging for 5 minutes the first day and increase by 1 minute every day, by the end of the month you’d be jogging for over 1/2 hour per day.



  • there are some good comments here



  • you could put the music on and dance



  • U need to excersizes with a friend who won’t let u back out.



  • Some good advice there below.



  • My daughter did the 30 day squat challenge and thought it was great – really got her motivated and exercising. Once she did that she added push ups to the squats and tried that for the next month.



  • I write everything down. In find that helps keep me honest



  • Google it.. Depends what area u want to work on
