On donating extra Halloween candy to our troops overseas:
”Mommy I think I want to be a solider when I grow up. That way I can go over there and get my candy back.”
— Proud Mommy Moment

Have you ever used your sleeping baby to do bicep curls? No?... uh me neither. But let's say hypothetically you had. Then I would say yay! You are aspiring to be a fit mom and realize the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. Does having a baby make it hard to find time to work out? Yes and no, but that largely depends on your definition of what an excuse is. People will ALWAYS find time for what they deem important. Read that again. It's true.

One mom's definition of fitness will not necessarily be the same as another mom's definition. We all have our own goals, limitations, and desired outcomes. That being said, being a mother is not an excuse to let your diet and exercise fall by the wayside. Children learn best by example, and you know as well as I do, that they are always watching. Try to lead an active lifestyle and be conscious of the food you eat. I love donuts as much as the next person, but that doesn't mean I eat them every day.  Fitness is truly a passion of mine, and after having a baby AND entering my 30's AND navigating single motherhood, I found myself in the best shape of my life. Being a fit mom doesn't mean you need to spend hours in the gym. It means you need to do your workouts efficiently and effectively. Let me help you get started and remember that to look like most don't, you need to put in the effort that most won't.
