Name: Theresa Abel
Child name and age: Little One's almost 16 months old! We are also excited to welcome another baby this winter.
Where are you from: Mt. Prospect...and grew up in surrounding suburbs
Favorite Thing/Memory about Fit4Mom: I love group fitness, since all you have to do is show up and instructors take care of the rest.
Favorite Exercise: Squats or lunges...both are so effective and make me feel strong.
Favorite Mom-me time of the day: I really enjoy the first hour after bedtime. I can chat with my husband, relax, and get things ready for the next day--a lot of iPad reading, a little dessert, or crawling into bed, myself.
What motivates you to exercise: I feel better mentally and physically when I exercise. It took me a while to realize this, but you only get one body, and you should treat what you have with respect.
Piece of advice for new moms: There are so many ways to mother; trust yourself. You are the perfect mom for the baby you were given.
