This week, I got a pleasant surprise!

Thursday, June 29, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
So, this week I had my measurements taken. I've been measuring every 12 weeks since I started training again after having Noah. And this week, I got a pleasant surprise! The first measurements were taken in January, and the second lot were done this week. (Obviously, we took a lot more sites this week!) But to say I was happy, is an understatement! I didn't fe ..

Recipe of the Week: Slow Cooked Chilli Beef

Thursday, June 22, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
If you've been following me for a while, you'll know how much I love my slow cooker. I'd marry it if I could! (Sorry Luke!) And with the winter weather starting to kick in, now is the perfect time to get the slow cooker out and get ready for some warming soups, hearty casseroles, and today's recipe, Slow Cooked Chilli Beef! It's one of our all-time faves here in the Archer househ ..

Babywearing Workout

Thursday, June 15, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
I've really embraced babywearing ever since having Noah last year. It's the only way I can get anything done! It allows me to play with my 3 year old, do the chores, the cooking and even workouts, all with my hands free! (If you have a baby who just wants to be held all the time, I highly recommend investing in a wrap/sling/Ergo, etc.) Many mums struggle with prioritising  ..

The simple way to survive witching hour and get dinner on the table!

Thursday, June 08, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
Witching hour. It's a b%$#&, isn't it? Noah has grown out of it now, but my goodness, those first couple of months were tough! With a toddler and a newborn to bath, dress, read to and get ready for bed, I can't imagine what I would have done if I'd needed to cook dinner, too. Before Noah was born, I spent some time preparing meals so when he arrived, I didn't have to thi ..

Just give it a go....

Thursday, June 01, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
It's hard getting back into rhythm after having a baby. I think back to when I had my first, Isabella, and it was such a huge shock to the system. Simply getting out and about felt like a huge mission, and a trip to the shops took half an hour of preparation, just to get out the door. And don't even talk to me about getting back into any sort of routine with exercise or food pre ..

At home workout for your weekend

Friday, May 26, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
I've had 2 sick kids in the house this week - again! (Second time in 3 weeks, grrrrr)! Anyway, as a result, we've stayed home a lot and I was unable to go to our Mums n Bubs classes (http://www.mpstudio.com.au/services/mums-n-bubs-classes) in the park. So, I did this workout at home instead! Set your timer for 30 second increments. Do each of the following exercises for  ..

An effective workout in just 12 minutes? Yes please!

Thursday, May 04, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
This week's been a bit out of sorts for me. Noah, my little (but actually rather big!) 5 month old came down with a bad cold, so I've had him attached to me for the past few days. On days like this, I find it's really important to still find a few minutes for myself, whether it be to read a few pages of a book, scroll mindlessly through social media or exercise! And this week, I ..

3 simple ways to lose centimetres

Thursday, April 06, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
Last week, I had my measurements taken for the end of my 12 Week Challenge. To be honest, I wasn't really excited to get them done - it's only been just over 4 months since I had Noah, and I couldn't see a huge change in myself. I really didn't want to be disappointed. But I got a surprise! I lost 5cm around my waist and 2.5cm around my hips. Yay! I reflected on the 12  ..
