I am a 45 year old stay at home mom. My husband and I have been together since college and we have two kids; 8 and almost 6.
I have been a “gym rat” since my dad got us a family membership at a Nautilus gym when I was in high school. I am a health and fitness fanatic, and I have been committed to a healthy way of life for 20 years.
My two passions are being a mom and fitness. As a mom, I always appreciate a great shortcut. Whether it is a tip on how to prepare a recipe faster, or a trick for putting on makeup, a good shortcut will make my day a little easier. Fitness and nutrition are no different. A great tip can make all the difference.
Most moms are short on time, so I want to give you the tools to get the most out of your fitness and nutrition in the best use of your time. Healthier choices, happier you!
