Welcome to the official launching party of Be Mom Strong. We know it’s New Years Day and you did all of your partying last night, but you have some left in you to continue today, right?!
Caitlin and I wanted to take a second to introduce ourselves, although many of you know us from our previous blogs. And, we wanted to tell you about our awesome program that you can get FOR FREE, as well as a giveaway from Moving Comfort.
So much to say.
Let’s start off with a little Q & A
Where were you born? Richmond, VA
Where was your daughter born? Gentry was born at the same place, same hospital!
Typical Day? 4:50AM alarm, followed by water and a workout. A shower, breakfast and getting up the little one by 7:30AM. Watching “The Chica Show” in order to get Gentry to eat anything. Running errands or teaching cycling classes until lunch (because we HAVE to get out of the house). Dr. Praeger’s veggie burger and frozen veggies and a 1-3PM nap (yes, I usually nap with her or stalk blogs- no housework EVER). Some OUTSIDE afternoon activity or else we go stir crazy. Dinner by 6PM, bed by 9PM… ok maybe 8PM.
Weakness? Kashi Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies or Maggiano’s Chocolate Cake
Random Fact? I drink hot water. All the time, every season. Used to be a tea girl, but then got too cheap to buy the bags.
Fitness Moment Most Proud Of: Finally earning my sub 1:30 half marathon (1:28:00!)
Mom Moment Most Ashamed Of: First night home, Gentry screamed for 2 hours straight. We fed her, we held her, we rocked her, we basically did everything but give her the kitchen sink. 2.5 hours later, we found the culprit… a poopy diaper… how did we not smell this earlier?!
Where were you born? Pittsburgh, PA
Where was your daughter born? Radford, VA
Typical Day? Wake up when Brooklyn does and drink coffee first thing. Go for a run or walk, run errands or house things, then teach in the afternoon and come home make dinner and get Brooklyn in the bath and story time before sleep! Then I finally relax and prepare for the next day
Weakness? I supposedly have add and can’t sit still for very long
Random Fact? I was induced with my first daughter Brooklyn because I fell off a scooter 39 weeks pregnant and shattered my elbow. Delivered and then went into surgery the next day…eventful time of my life to say the least!
Fitness Moment Most Proud Of: Running a marathon. I want to run one more in my life but now with another baby on the way I don’t know when that will happen!
Mom Moment Most Ashamed Of: Taking shortcuts to get things done instead of explaining how….parents probably know what I mean !
