What We Talked About
Fitness is an integral part of maintaining our mental health and was a no brainer when we were brainstorming topics to include for the Health & Wellness theme of our Okayest Moms Summer Series.
Giselle is a certified personal trainer and a mother to two boys. We talked about maintaining realistic expectations (especially when sleep deprived!) for fitness and how even low impact exercises can make a big difference in your overall health. Childhood obesity is a growing epidemic in our country, and we also touched on healthy habits to implement with your family. Nutrition is also a huge fitness component, so we discussed Giselle’s approach to feeding her family and her take on diner time habits.
Giselle also has several nutrition and workout programs, including a Busy Mom Bootcamp! She is offering 20% off to Okayest Moms Summer Series viewers with code SUMMER. Brittany and I have both done a macronutrient bootcamp with her (not sponsored- we spent our own money!) and have nothing but great things to say about it!
Things We Mentioned
Giselle mentioned a food tracker she started using with her boys. She believes in a balanced approach to nutrition, and doesn’t deprive her boys of sweets or treats. This tracker is a low pressure way to introduce the idea that your body needs lots of different kinds of foods and nutrients to be healthy.
Here is a sample meal plan she uses for her kids. She tends to only plan breakfast and lunches for them, but they eat what the family eats for dinner.
