Fit Mom…in Training is a personal blog that chronicles my journey from sedentary living to healthy living and all the adventures, mishaps, and lessons I’ve learned along the way.
I started writing in 2010 as a means of coping with the crippling effects of postpartum depression and my struggles to regain my sense of self after having my first child. What started as a place to express my inner demons quickly evolved into an epic journey toward health and happiness.
I strive to demonstrate that no matter how busy, stressful and overwhelming life as a working mom/dad/student can be, healthy living can be incorporated into anyone’s life if the commitment and determination are there. It’s not easy but if this average mom can change, so can you.
I’ve created Fit Mom…in Training to be a safe and informative environment where those looking to incorporate health and fitness into their lives can come for support and encouragement. Just as I rely on my fitness communities to help support me, I wish to do the same for others. I want to set an example that we can do anything we set our minds to and that nothing is impossible. I also want to be a positive role model for my sons who inspire me every day to try harder, push further and reach beyond myself.
Since launching Fit Mom…in Training in August of 2010, I’ve had the privilege of working with some amazing brands such as Under Armour, Blue Diamond, Sparkly Soul and Swiss Natural. I am also an active member of the leadership team for Mamavation (an anti-obesity campaign) and an Ambassador with FitFluential and Fit Approach (#sweatpink).
Recently, I have been named a top 20 Inspirational Healthy Tweep as well as a Fit Blogger to watch in 2012.
