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 9-year-old twin girls, another daughter who is 8 and a 4-year-old son. I'm also co-author of the book, "Hot (Sweaty) Mamas: Five Secrets to Life as a Fit Mom," (more about that at www.hotsweatymamas.com) and as you might guess, I enjoy being active, especially (but not limited to) running, biking, swimming, and yoga.
