BUT you do need to shake things up a bit, and take the challenges full on.
I can't go to the gym after work any more! I have no money! Childcare is impossible! I'm so unfit after pregnancy! I don't know what exercise to do! I have no time!
No one says it's easy.
I have shared the experience of early motherhood with hundreds of other mums. And I believe all of us can be wonderful mothers - as active, happy people ourselves.
