What is your favorite thing about FIT4MOM? I love the ladies-obviously! It truly takes a village to be a mama and I have found some wonderful moms though Fiit4Mom. I’ve really enjoyed Fit4Baby the last few months and seeing the same friendly faces every Tuesday Night & Saturday Morning- and of course the 5 minutes I get to lay on my yoga mat, by myself, in silence during the meditation is AMAZING!
What is your favorite exercise? Run Club- I LOVE running and welcomed the opportunity to get back into it after my first pregnancy. I needed to be motivated and held accountable and Run Club provided just that. That’s when I really started to feel part of the Fit4Mom Village.
What is your favorite Mom-me time of the day? Storytime before bed with Reese- it’s the best part of my day for sure! Even if I’ve had a stressful day at work, I love winding down with her at the end of the night.
What motivates you to exercise? My health, my family and my sanity! Life is hectic and crazy and a good workout lets me take some time to myself and clear my head.
How has FIT4MOM changed your life? I definitely underestimated the challenge and mental toll of being pregnant in the middle of a global pandemic. It’s been such a stressful and self-doubting but also exciting time—all the emotions for sure! FIT4MOM has been a HUGE support system for me over these past few months. It’s been both helpful and comforting to relate and talk to other women going through the same thing. It always helps to know you aren’t alone.
What is a piece of advice for busy moms? Put on your oxygen mask first. You need to be OK for your kiddos to be OK. Make time for yourself, even when it’s hard. YOU deserve it!
