Mom, Wife, Entertainment Reporter/News 12 LI
As a mom with a demanding work schedule, I face the daily challenge of juggling career, family, friends and regular life surprises! Connecting to my fitness routine isn’t always easy - I’m sometimes just too exhausted. NOT feeling guilty about it can be tough – because I know it’s a choice and I am choosing “no” in that moment. I have noticed positive shifts during the periods when exercise truly brings me joy and makes me feel good – when it’s not about trying to “get thin” or “burn calories”, but instead, set my intentions to get stronger and move in a state of gratitude. Giving back to the body that works so hard for me every day is a gift I can give myself. When I get my mind there, to that place of gratefulness, I feel empowered and instantly recharged, mentally and physically.
