Let's Start Now
I'm excited to kick off the Lifetime Moms Fit & Healthy channel, even more excited to meet all of you, brand new readers and women and mothers who are looking to either maintain or achieve a fit and healthy life. What will this space look like? It all depends on you. The reader. I have my own vision for the information, the stories, the interviews and more that I'd love to share with all of you. But I also want to hear from you -- moms like me who are working hard each day to maintain some sense of self, to discover or reconnect with that inner (and outer) you. What does fit & healthy mean to you? To me, it's more than just that perfect dress size that I'm on my way to finding again, it's about a whole fit and healthy life. I seek to have my body and my mind fit and healthy so that I can be the best version of me that I can. My children, my husband, my whole tribe of family and friends want the same for me as well.
I'm not a fitness expert, but a fitness student. I'm learning as you are learning, and hope to give you a place to get interesting tidbits, a place to relate and a place to grow. Health of the mind, body, and soul is not only vital for a happy and fulfilled life, but vital for us as mothers as well. Our children are learning by example, and they need us to care about ourselves as much as they care about us. Just as we'd need to give ourselves the air-mask first on an airplane in the event of an emergency, before we’d put one on our child, we need to remember that taking care of ourselves is essential to being a mother.
I'm a regular mom, on a journey of weight loss and soul gain, and I hope you'll join me on this adventure. I'll be sharing interesting health and fitness tips, stories of my own trials and tribulations of weight loss and self discovery, and interviews with some of your favorite fitness and health gurus. Let's learn together, lose together and grow together. I can't think of a better time to start than right now.
