Meet working mum mentor Marie from HEALTH ME

Another wonderful week, another another wonderful Working Mums Mentor! I am super excited to introduce this amazing mentor to you; its the fitness mentor, Marie from HEALTH ME! 

1. Please tell us a bit about yourself and your Business. How did it all start?

Me , Maree, a 36 year old woman with 3 beautiful, hyperactive kids (and yes 2 out 3 have diagnosed ADHD so they are hyperactive) Georgia is 12, Kaylan is 11 and Kye is 5, he was my little surprise. I am married to Bennett, my best friend, my soul mate and someone I can be my silliest, craziest self around. We have been together since age 15, a long time I know, but when you’re friends before you’re lovers it seems effortless.
My passion for fitness started at a young age. I was very atheletic at school and pre-kids,But did not study Personal Training till I was 30. As for nutrition I took this on when my kids were diagnosed with AdHd as I did not want to medicate them. I have been able to manage their behaviour and concentration through food and fitness.
My business started because I wanted to help other families manage their children and themselves with food and fitness. I wanted to be able to educate, inspire and motivate them to be healthy both inside and out. I also still wanted to be able to drop off and pick up my children from school and realized I could do this by working for myself.
I speak from experience when I talk about weightloss as I myself have lost over 25kg after my last child. I know the highs and the lows, I know what it is like to have to do the grocery shopping, cook dinners, make lunches, clean and still make time for my exercise. I want to show mummies how they can get their sexy back through food and fitness.

2. What do you offer as a mentor in your working mum mentoring sessions?

Mentoring sessions with Me will help provide realistic health and fitness solutions to working mums who want to reinvent themselves to become Healthier Sexier Women and still meet the needs of their family and careers! I can show you how to get your sexy back through food and fitness.

3. What are your top 5 tips for any busy mum?

1. Set aside 30 mins on the weekend to schedule in shopping days, weekly dinners, exercise and some ME time.
2. Be active daily, even if its for 10mins whilst cooking dinner do some squats and lunges.The feel good hormones it will realease will be worth it.
3. At least once a week do something that makes you feel like a woman! Manicure, Pedicure, a bath, hair treatment whatever it is MAKE SURE YOU DO IT!
4. Get enough sleep. Going to bed late and getting up early , is not beneficial to you physically, emotionally or mentally or any body else around you. At least 6 hours solid sleep will do wonders.
5. I have learnt to stop whinging, nobody is listening. If I want something done, I either do it myself or ask for help! 9 times out of 10 most family and friends would LOVE to help. Its just us being too shy or too proud to ask

4. Do you have any advice or inspiration to send out to any of our readers that are thinking about starting their own business or doing more of something they love???

JUST DOIT! Dont get me wrong its hard work, however the freedom, flexability and passion is worth it!

5. If you had half an hour to cook dinner and realised you didn’t have anything planned, what would you cook?

Tuna, Rice and Veggie Salad with Olive Oil and Lemon dressing. These are staples in my house, so it’s easy to throw together in minutes.

6. What’s your favourite juice or smoothie?

 It would have to be Guava, Orange and Banana Smoothie with Yoghurt.

7. What is your favourite live by affirmation, mantra or quote?

 I live by “Its all about Progression not perfection” I think we can get too caught up in getting things perfect that we miss out on the process and the progression we make. Life is about making mistakes, how else would we learn if we didn’t make them.

8. Lastly, anything you want to share with us about you or your business?

Health Me is aimed at women and families who want to change their lifestyles to become healthier, but still enjoy a few naughty things every now and then. We focus on not creating swimsuit models but confident, strong women both mentally, emotionally and physically.
