Good morning! How is it Monday again? Marlie will be 7 weeks on Wednesday and we’re even closer to Christmas. How is this happening? It feels like it was only a couple of weeks ago we were first coming home with her. All these years of wishing time away is coming back to haunt me.
Anyway, I am super excited about Christmas. Usually I’d be planning from September, but a new baby got in the way. So I am very late to the festive train, but I’m ready to make up for that. I’ll be posting Christmas updates on my instagram and Facebook account if you fancy finding out what I’ve got going on. (search Mission2Mum for both)
I’ve got a double whammy real, super Mama’s Mummy Monday for you this week. The amazing ladies from SuperCharged Club, Mary and Emma, have answered my questions and I’m really excited to have them on the blog.
I just love what these badass women have created in Supercharged club. It’s exactly what you need to kick start a healthy diet and fitness programme after having the kiddos. There’s no bullshit fads with these two, it’s all about informative, motivational and inspiring advice to help you turn your life around. I love the whole concept and I will be joining the Supercharged club very soon. (once I get my head around this multiple kids malarky!) Head on over to the website ‘click here‘ to find out more. Let’s find out what the girls have got to say…
