Mom Fitness is all about staying healthy while getting it all done as a mother: cooking, cleaning, feeding your family and running the household. It’s important to stay healthy as a mom, and it’s one of the things I’m most passionate about.
I stay healthy through eating healthy, and I want to teach you that you too can get on track with healthy eating! And you can feed your family healthy food too. But it doesn’t have to be a total chore. There are great ways to incorporate superfoods into your diet, and so many tricks to using whole foods from the garden.
Another way I achieve fitness as a mom is by exercising. I love to go for a run to clear my head. I also love lifting weights – it’s a great way to stay in shape. And the best thing about both of these activities? You don’t need a gym membership to do them, once you make the initial investment in the right fitness equipment!

Raise your hand if you’re making new resolutions this year. But why are they so hard to keep?! I believe it’s because we go about it all wrong. Do these sound familiar? “I resolve to stop eating sugar” “I resolve to move more eat less” “I resolve to eat less junk food” But these are Keep Reading

The day Haddassah turned six weeks old, I strapped on my running shoes, ecstatic that I was no longer under the post-partum take-it-easy-or-your-intestines-might-fall-through-the-floor exercise ban. (That’s not to say that you can’t exercise prior to six weeks, you just don’t really want to perform Keep Reading
“Project Fit Pregnancy” started off as a kind of experiment. I didn’t know exactly what would happen, or how active I’d be able to be, or if my activity would have an affect on he pregnancy at all, but I had promised myself after Garrett was born, that I would get in shape before getting pregnant Keep Reading
Well, today’s the big day, but as we all know, due dates are only estimated due dates - and for good reason. Not very many of us actually deliver on our due dates, and it looks like I’m no exception. The babycenter pregnancy app cautions that serious workouts are out of the question at this Keep Reading
They say that half the fun is anticipation, but I think I this case, the anticipation is just making the time drag. On the upside, I was telling my midwife yesterday that I was disappointed with how well I feel (does that even make sense?!) - after all, you have to be really miserable for a Keep Reading
Fact: the first 35 weeks of pregnancy were a breeze compared to the last 3. It’s really hard to explain. I’m not having many braxton hicks, or a lot of heartburn, or swelling, or anything like that.
