As my regular readers are aware i have been on a mission to regain my figure. What you may not know is how it all started...
I was recently asked to appear in a feature for Top Sante about how i have improved my fitness and how it all come about and Eeeeek!
It's out this month*!!
The article features several ladies like me who have undertaken a charity event and then turned their fitness around after the training.
When i was a teenager my brother Matthew died, aged 19 he lost his battle with cancer and this year i finally dragged myself off my lazy arse and raised money for cancer research by taking part in The Race For Life. It was this that got me started on my fitness campaign to return to my pre pregnancy weight.
I got to meet the other ladies featured at the photoshoot and have to say i felt very un-worthy compared to their stories of climbing mountains and riding push bikes to Paris. I am now even more inspired to do the 10k next year after reading their stories.
We all however shared the same opinion that we had achieved what we had thought was impossible, i hope other people read the article and feel they too can do something they'd thought wasn't for them.
So if your in Tesco or Asda ( or any leading magazine retailer ) pick up a copy and have a look, its Mumra in the flesh!

Many thanks to Liz Jarvis for writing a lovely article and giving me the opportunity to be involved.
