Inspiration Friday: Fitness


Monday Wes & I will be starting a new fitness/exercise plan together and I super pumped! {Everyone knows you can’t start being healthy until the Monday after you decide to start working out again!} So in honour of our new resolutions, today’s inspiration is to help me stay focused and inspire anyone else who needs a little nudge ;).

Kate Alyse

Kate is a proud mama to six amazing little sweeties {through birth + adoption} and wife to the best husband a girl could ask for! She considers herself blessed to be able to stay home with the kids, and is just starting to get into the world of homeschooling. In her "spare-time" she enjoys sharing many of the projects, stories, and gluten-free recipes that are a part of their every day lives!
  • This week, Sophie and I have been either walking, biking or using our kick scooters in the morning. We have a park that's in another neighborhood, but not too far from our house so we usually go there. It's about a 10 minute walk, and we get there slightly faster if we're biking or using our kick scooters. Not much though, because Sophie likes to stop a long the way to admire the flowers, etc 🙂

    But I am trying to exercise more, because I used to do pilates before I was pregnant. I am still the same size clothes as I was pre-pregnancy, and I pretty much look the same.. no one would really know, but I know that I am not quite the same. I was more muscular and fit before. And Sophie is 5 years old… and I still haven't went back to doing my pilates at home! Shame on me.

  • We loooove going on walks too! Hayden is more into admiring rocks at the moment haha.

    I know exactly what you mean! – I did Pilates all the time before and even all throughout my pregnancy with Hayden {and haven't done it since.} And I'm just a few pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight – but like you said my body is just completely different… I still don't feel like "myself"! So hopefully that changes as I finally start exercising again 🙂

  • Heather

    I always like to remind myself that chasing around a toddler is partly exercise 🙂 But for our health, we need to exercise more as well! Good luck on your new routine!

  • Andrea

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thinks you can't start a new exercise decision until the Monday after it's decided upon! HAHA! I started TRX classes on Wednesday and I'm finally able to walk semi-normal again today so I'm headed back…the workout posters were good to see this morning for some motivation!


  • I know right?! I'm feelin super motivated to stay dedicated and get back in shape… so we'll see how long that lasts 😛

  • These photos are a great motivator! I hope you get your fitness on and are very successful! 

  • I am TOTALLY with you on Monday thing!  I can only start on a Monday.  It doesn't feel right to do it any other way. 

    Love the motivation!

  • Aaaah! That's exactly what i needed to read! Thx!!!

  •  Awesome! We just completed our first session together and it was awesome 🙂

  •  Exactly! I know, I had to remind myself of all my goals to keep me motivated – interestingly I'm more motivated by the phrases than the pictures, but they pictures don't hurt lol

  •  Awesome! You're welcome 😛

  • I like the quote "If you eat what you've always eaten, you weigh what you've always weighed" and I'd like to add… "or more…" 

    Good luck on your guys' fitness plan!Kyle and I are currently training for a 10k mud run, so we've been out running around lately. we need to do more though!~Lisha

  • Also, would it be okay if I said that I think most of those girls are a bit too skinny? It's important to be healthy, not important to be "skinny"… 

  •  Thanks! Wes and I trained for a race together once… pretty sure I just held him back the whole time – poor guy – but it was a great experience training and running together!

  • I agree – this post was kind of weird, because I didn't want it to come across as worshiping the bodies in the pictures. What I REALLY like is the quotes! They just happen to have fitness related pictures to accompany them lol…
