As the end of the year draws near I am secretly getting excited about getting back in shape in the new year, I have a wardrobe full of pre-baby clothes I can’t wait to wear again. As you can probably imagine delivering a 4.6kg baby was no easy task, recovery has been slow and unfortunately I am yet to get the doctor’s tick of approval to start exercising again. It has been almost three months since Ted was born and thankfully I am feeling a bit stronger every day so I am slowly picking up the pace with the help of Maze Activewear:

Designed for new, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers of all shapes and sizes Maze Activewear offers stylish, high quality activewear that is both practical and flattering. I am a bit disappointed that I only discovered this awesome label after Ted was born as I am loving this supportive yet comfy sports gear!

Most expecting mums will know that it is important to stay active during pregnancy, but at the same time your changing body and that rapidly growing bump can leave you feeling a bit out of balance and unsure. Don’t worry mama, Maze Activewear will help you feel confident and supported in all the right places with their fabulous over-the-belly Maternity Tights (RRP $79.95-$89.95, size XS – L).

Featuring a breathable and seam-free tummy panel that grows with you as your baby belly grows, stability power mesh that will make you strong and steady and hi-tech performance fabric these tights are your ultimate exercise buddy. They are available in both full length and a shorter 3/4 length and come in a range of neutral colours to compliment all your favourite workout gear.

Once baby has arrived most mamas will find their new body will take some getting used to, after 6 babies my body most certainly isn’t bouncing back the way celebrities seem to do! The Maze Activewear High Waisted 3/4 Tights (RRP $49.95, size XS-L) do a fantastic job keeping all those wobbly bits in place while the Active Core Stability technology provides much needed support for this poor mummy tummy which has had quite the beating. Added bonus: A handy zip pocket at the back to keep your gym pass or keys safe and mesh panels on the lower leg for extra air flow.

Whether I am at home or out and about and whether I am relaxing or working out, our big boy counts on easy nursing access. With the Nursing Sports Bra (RRP $59, size XS-L) you can get fit and feed at the same time, easy drop-down cups allow for convenient breastfeeding (and a nursing pad if desired) while the powerful nylon/spandex/cotton blend will keep you comfortable and supported through your entire training session. The ergonomic racer back design distributes the weight evenly and stops me from getting a sore back and shoulders.

Hip Tip: When you buy the Maternity Tights and Nursing Sports Bra together you get a welcome 15% bundle discount. For an even bigger saving why not join the Maze Activewear mailing list to enjoy an additional 10% discount on your first order, simply enter your email address at the bottom of the home page to receive your discount code in your inbox.

And then it was Saturday, finally! On schooldays I generally rush around like a mad woman and hardly have time for breakfast, let alone to brush my hair and put make-up on, so on the weekend I always try to find 5 minutes just for me. A bit of lipgloss and mascara, some sleek and shine for my hair and of course an outfit that’s both comfortable and stylish.

Eeni Mum

When I visited the Bloggers Brunch in July I was lucky enough to meet the mastermind behind it all: a beautiful, talented woman called Christie who has a passion for motivating and inspiring mothers and women so they can make the most of themselves and be proud of who they are. She loves seeing women excited about life, not only enjoying their role as a mother and wife but also be happy women who are excited about themselves and the future ahead of them.

When you meet Christie in real life the energy just bounces off her and you are certain to leave with a refreshed view on yourself and your life. I wish every mother could meet Christie and hear her speak but unfortunately that is not possible, you can however read her fantastic book The Mum Who Roared.

‘The Mum Who Roared is your starting point to having a greater love and respect for your mind, body and attitude. It’s a friendly, real and practical guide to adjusting to your role as a mother, while still holding onto your identity and everything that once made you you.

It is not a parenting guide. Instead, this motivating resource provides simple and effective tips so that you can genuinely enjoy this next chapter in your life, feel in control, and stay in touch with your core needs and values.

Above all, it recognises that you are a woman, not just a mum. So by following some of the suggestions, reading other real-life accounts and survival tips, and using the practical pull-out goal cards, you can continue your journey as a happy, healthy, passionate, balanced woman, who is also a mum … A mum who roared!’
