My story...

Okay, so I created this blog MOSTLY because I see that many women like myself, have a hard time finding the time to get moving and exercise! Well, I figured we can do it TOGETHER?! At one point in my life I was lazy, didn't wanna exercise, didn't eat healthy. I needed change! My grandmother had a lot to do with it, she had congestive heart failure (diagnosed years ago). Because I couldn't help her, I made it a point to do whatever I could to help others understand the importance of taking care of their heart, even worked in cardiac rehab for a little while before I became a P.E. teacher with my degree in health. I wanted to help make a difference to the children and help them develop these healthy habits before it was too late. Yea, who would have thought that lazy girl would have actually LOVED exercise? I KNOW first hand how hard it is to do it each day, I have to wake up each day and tell myself to GET MOVING!

Now that I am a proud wife and mother, what I hear from most women is
"How do you find the time?"
ANSWER: I have NO idea! It's true, I don't know how I found the time when I was a full-time teacher, mother and wife and I still don't know how I find the time being a full-time mother and wife-minus the teacher! ?? I guess I just make time. Whether it's jogging(I am by no means super-fast!), workout videos(I know not everybody likes them, but for some reason, I do!) or whatever else I am feeling!

So, I'm curious,
How do you "move it"?
What keeps you motivated?
I'd love to hear your comments!

Love the new blog!! As far as working out these days I'm not very motivated. I only get to work out because of our gym but really it's not very often. Wish you would come do cardio class again, it was so much fun having you there!
