Get to know our May Mom of the Month!
Name: Meg Boudouris
Child name and age: Ellie, 15 months
Where are you from: Wheaton, IL (but we live in Edison Park)
Favorite Thing/Memory about Fit4Mom: It sounds lame, but everyone really is so accepting, welcoming, and helpful.
Favorite Exercise: Blast offs
Favorite Mom-me time of the day: Nap time when I get the chance to shower, work on projects, and eat things without sharing.
What motivates you to exercise: I've always struggled with my body image and weight and I don't want to transfer any of that onto Ellie. I want her to see exercise as a normal, fun part of daily life.
Piece of advice for new moms: Someone will probably tell you that it will get easier at 3 months. And then you may end up sobbing, "but it's 4 months and she's still not happy. Am I broken? Did I break her?" to your husband. Everything is probably ok. Things didn't get "easier" until after 6 months--but it finally happened and she's almost over the top happy now!
