Just a quick post since we're all spending time with family and enjoying the holidays. Since my grandfather would have turned 100 on Wednesday I've had him on my mind more lately. I've been reading some of the stories he left and came across a speech he gave on "Career Day," at a local high school. One sentence leapt out at me and I feel compelled to share. So ruminate over it as 2011 comes to a close and take it with you as you head into 2012. Happy New Year!
You do best doing the things you love to do, so love your talent and it will fulfill your life.
This blog isn't about weight loss or acquiring the perfect body, it's about the absurdities we moms face when we're trying to be mom, wife, employee (or employer), daughter, sister, friend, and the many other roles we take on; while making fitness fit into our lives. As a former endurance athlete, I'm trying to stay in shape while I raise my three young daughters and son. Finding the time and the means to exercise isn't just about me, though. I also want to be a good role model and help my children grow up active and healthy.
I'm mom to 11-year-old twin girls, another daughter who is 9 and a 5-year-old son. I'm also co-author of the book, "Hot (Sweaty) Mamas: Five Secrets to Life as a Fit Mom," (www.hotsweatymamas.com) and the children's book series for the Go! Go! Sports Girls (www.gogosportsgirls.com). As you might guess, I enjoy being active, especially (but not limited to) running, biking, swimming, and yoga.
