Happy Sunday Everyone!

I know we are all busy and don’t always get to everything we hope to during the week so, a  new feature here on BUMP Life is the Sunday Night Wrap Up!

Here’s what happened this week on BUMP Life:


It was an exciting week as we hosted the ladies from Hot Sweaty Mamas on their virtual book tour.

Read my review of their book here;

Book Review: Hot Sweaty Mamas: Five Secrets to Life as a Fit Mom

Then Laurie and Kara were our guest’s on Thursday with their post;

Goodbye Mother Guilt: The secret to staying committed is letting go

These ladies have some great tips for figuring out how to be a healthy mama!  Be sure to check them out



 I am giving away a copy of HOT SWEATY MAMAS: FIVE SECRETS TO LIFE AS A FIT MOM to one lucky BUMP Life reader.  Leave a comment here or on our facebook page.  A winner will be randomly selected on Friday 11/25



This week, I posted part 3 in the Prenatal Fitness Answers Series, all about the myths around exercising (and sleeping) on your back during pregnancy.

Prenatal Fitness Answers-Part 3- Supine Hypotensive Syndrome

If you missed part 1 or 2 in the series, here they are.  And stay tuned for the final installment next week all about the hormone Relaxin and what it does to your body during pregnancy and post partum.

What is your stance on TV viewing for your little ones?  Read about what the research has to say and my personal take on the whole thing here;

TV and Kids: What’s a Busy Parent to Do?



Even though it was actually last week when Sharon Lincoln talked about Removing the Triggers when it comes to achieving our goals, I thought it was worth linking to again.  She has some great tips for us as always.  Next week she’ll be back to talk about Redefining the Resolution to get us ready for the New Year (or before!)

Seasons of Change: Removing the Triggers


Next week starts the busy holiday season, and we have a lot of posts on the agenda to get us ready and keep us sane during the next few weeks.  Want some kid-friendly holiday crafts ideas?  It’s coming.  Holiday workouts?  Done.  Need help picking out some gifts?  We even have giveaways coming up, so you don’t even have to shop!  Weekly Fit Tips?  Watch for new videos soon.

Let us know what else you are looking for and share your ideas with the rest of our BUMP Life community.

Happy Sunday
