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!
*Tell us a few things about yourself! "The husband and I love being outdoors. We're actually in the process of converting a sprinter van into a camper van. We plan on living in it and traveling all over the US for a year once Bryn turns 2. We'll be documenting the experience from start to finish. Follow us on our journey! INSTAGRAM- @fromourvantagepoint
*I couldn't survive motherhood without... "Coffee :) But seriously, motherhood would've swallowed me whole by now if it weren't for my husband, Eric. He has the patience of a saint and never shies away from sharing the responsibilities of parenthood. He's forever an encouraging and supportive, AND he cooks and makes me coffee. My hero :)
*What gives you motivation to work out? "Aside from the dreaded thought of leggings being in constant rotation another winter... I was really starting to get bummed out about the lack of energy I had. I'm not self-motivated when it comes to fitness; the gym was never my style and I'd find any excuse not to pop in the work-out DVD's I have. I do best when I have accountability, so I jumped at the chance to join Stroller Strides. AND being one of the first of my friends to have a baby, I was happy to have the added bonus of making some mom friends!"
*What's your favorite thing about living in St. Augustine? "The fortune of enjoying the outdoors the majority of the year. Living in such close proximity to the ocean, intracoastal, and springs is a blast.
