Favorite Thing/Memory about Fit4Mom: My favorite thing about Fit4Mom is having a wonderful group of Mommy friends that help motivate and support me every day. I was feeling a bit lost my first few months as a new mom and was looking for a group to belong to. Fit4Mom really opened their arms and embraced me. Working out with friends not only motivates me to the best version of myself, but gives Halle a strong positive Mom to look up to as she grows. I also really love my Mom's Night Outs!
Favorite Exercise: Burpees! They are super challenging and a full body workout. They never seem to get easier!
Favorite Mom-me time of the day: My favorite Mom-me time of day is in the morning before anyone has gotten up from bed (including my husband). I love to read my book, drink my coffee and eat my breakfast in silence. This might be the only time my house is completely quiet and it helps energize me for the day.
What motivates you to exercise: I have always been a very active person, so working out for me is something that has always been a part of my daily routine. Exercise relaxes my mind. When I work out I feel strong and healthy; not only physically, but mentally. For that reason, I feel working out makes me a better mom and role model to my daughter.
Piece of advice for new moms: You are doing everything right. Do not second guess yourself. Stay positive and enjoy every moment because the time will go by fast!
