Thoughtful Wednesday: FEATURED BLOG... WannaBBalancedMom

My blog is FREE WILLED just like me; I write what I feel like writing. Planning babies doesn't mean I have to be obsessed. This is why I have decided to try to feature one blogger who has similar aims as me: to be a yummy-mummy! I want to feature fun-ambitious-fashionable-healthy-fit-mothers (weight doesn't count). I might feature one blog every month; I hope this will entertain you.

So give me: Drums, Lights, Fireworks...

Today is my first feature! And I couldn't be happier to feature Crystal @

I started reading her blog exactly two months ago and I instantly became hooked on it. Who doesn't want to learn how to balance her life by combining family and healthy living?

Just like me she has been married for 5 years, but unlike me she already has two gorgeous children. Apart from being a dedicated mother/wife she dedicates time to her wellbeing. When you look at her she looks like a young woman in her early twenties. But then she revealed her secret.

She was kind to answer few questions. {Image: permission of Crystal}
Question: Age?
Answer: 29 going thirty! :D

Q: When and why did you start your blog?
A: I'm just a wannabe :) trying to find balance among the daily chaos of motherhood.I started up this blog about 5 months ago... I have really enjoyed getting to know so many other moms and reading others tips and advice about motherhood. [On my blog]... I include many different subjects among which, are beauty tips, weight loss, parenting, inspiration, organization tips, saving and budgeting, making dinners, and the list goes on.

Q: Which blog post do you cherish the most?
A: I love many of them. But if I must choose then here are few:

  • How I Cleared Up My Skin, this one is about how I cleared up my skin, includes before and after pics.
  • My Work Out Routine, this is a post about the ways I stay fit as a mom, which includes regular work outs combined with periodic nutritional cleansing.
  • My Cleanse, finally this one explains what the nutritional cleansing is about as well as before and after pics and a video.

Q: How do you combine your dedication to your family with keeping fit?
A: You'll find a lot of lists and schedules on my blog because I have a bit of an obsession with it :) The only way I can fit everything in each week is to stay organized and have schedules that I can stick to. I recently came up with a good schedule that fits my lifestyle while allowing time to work out, spend time with my kids, keep house work under control, and even make dinners.

Q: As a mummy-blogger who like to keep fit, which advice would you give to a future-mummy-blogger who would like to keep fit during and after pregnancy?
A: Finding balance is the key, but of course, finding balance isn't easy. We just have to stay in tuned with what's most important, and keep TRYING to achieve the balance we desperately need as mothers :)
