We are back at it again with our mama of the month spotlight!
This month we are shining the spotlight on one of our founding mamas, Allie. She has been nothing short of a light and positive source of energy in our classes. She is someone who will always have a smile on her face and a willingness to work hard. It has been such a pleasure having her in our village. Feeling her relaxed and precious spirit amongst us will always be appreciated!
Here's our interview with Allie!
Your name and age: Allie, 28
Your little one's name and age: Isla, 2
What are some of your favorite things about being a mom? I loved experiencing the miracle of growing a tiny human and now watching her grow and learn to be her own little person. It's really fun watching Isla's personality develop and seeing which things she takes after me for and which traits she gets from her daddy. It's a lot of fun that she can communicate now and carry on a conversation. She is hilarious and always has us laughing!
We are back to it this month with celebrating our lovely mamas!
Our Mama of the month for February is Erin! She initially came to class in November, and was in the first weeks of her second pregnancy. She has been such an amazing addition to our village, and nothing but pure motivation to all of us women when it comes to taking care of ourselves. I have been so thrilled and encouraged by her presence, and the positive influence she has been for all our moms.
Here's a little bit about Erin!
As much as we focus on fitness and health, I believe it is just as important (and fun) to focus on feeling good about yourself when it comes to style. Style is something that us moms tend to put to the side when it comes to ourselves, and our children not so much! Dressing our babes is a great and fulfilling part of being a mama, but completely forgetting about ourselves is not the only option we have.
After having my daughter, I struggled with my wardrobe and at times felt guilty when I would go or want to go shopping for myself. Two kids later, and it's something I have learned I don't ever need to feel guilty about. Taking care of ourselves comes in many different forms, and I believe one of them is incorporating our personal style!
Now, don't misunderstand me! I am not suggesting you come up with this elaborate, over the top, super expensive wardrobe. I mean let's be realistic: we are moms! Our days consist of spit up, blow outs, and messes of all kinds. We are running around chasing little people. Practicality is key in this stage of motherhood!
Here at FIT4MOM we want nothing more than to celebrate our women. Each one of us has something amazing to share and offer. At FIT4MOM St. Augustine Beach we are going to feature a new mama each month and hear her story!
Our first and one of our founding mamas is Angela! She is a new mama to little miss Bryn, who is 8.5 months old. From the week and a half that I have known Angela, she is one of the warmest and friendliest women I have met. I am so excited to share a bit of her with you. Here we go!
*What are some of your favorite things about being a mom? "I love seeing things through her eyes. It has been a lot of fun watching her grow and learn, I've allowed myself to slow down and be in the moment with her, so it has kind of been like childhood 2.0. Every day is new and fun! She also happens to think I'm the funniest person in the world, which is an ego boost. I'll do the most ridiculous things to hear her laugh!
