Well, here goes nothing! Welcome to fitmamasblog. This is my very first blog post! I’m not exactly sure what I’m doing but something deep inside told me to do it so here I am! My goal with this blog is to help other moms out and share this crazy journey called motherhood together. I also want to share with moms that “being fit” isn’t as difficult as it may seem. It’s just a matter of being mindful, finding balance and enjoying life to it’s fullest along the way. Making sure you work in a lot of smiles and laughing into your days helps too!
Fitness has been a part of my life since I was a teenager. I fell in love with working out when I was in high school and went on to study Fitness and Health Promotion at Algonquin College in my hometown of Ottawa, Ontario. I became a trainer when I was 18 and have been working in the fitness industry for 12 years. Moving and eating well has been ingrained into me but don’t get me wrong, I enjoy life’s little pleasures as well. I never deprive myself of anything I want whether it be nutella or nice big glass of vino. My husband is Italian which works out because I just happen to love Italian food which I luckily get to eat a lot of. However, I do try to eat clean, whole foods as much as possible and limit the not so good things because I know what’s good for me. As you can see, I’m not an extremist in any way shape or form, I’m quite the oppose.
What inspired me to start a blog truly was being inspired by so many other amazing bloggers and women on social media that are out there sharing their knowledge and helping each other out. We’re all in this together. It really does take a village and I want this to be my little village where moms can come to for advice about relatable shit. This mom thing really is just a guessing game and we are all winging it. Sure we have our family and friends and good ol’ google but it’s nice to discuss everyday struggles and reality with other moms who are going through the same things you are. Dads, grandmas, sisters, aunts or whoever feels like it are all welcome to read along as well!
I will share my two cents on nutrition for moms and babies, how to incorporate fitness into your busy mom life and hopefully make you chuckle a bit along the way.
Thanks for checking out my blog and I hope I can inspire you to move, eat well and just breathe.
