I am so inspired by other mothers who make time for taking care of themselves with all the responsibilities of motherhood. Every Friday I will feature a Fit Momma who makes time for fitness. Let's meet:
Name: Latorsha – aka Optimistic Mom
Children : I have a 4 year old son. We can just call him my little man.
Occupation: By degree I am a nurse. I have worked in health care and education. Currently, I am preparing to embrace new opportunities………whatever they may be.
Favorite Fitness Activities: I really enjoy cardio and weight lifting exercises. I know that the cardio is good for my heart and maintaining a healthy weight. The weight lifting helps tone my muscles and gives a really nice slim fit look.
How do you find time for fitness? I make it part of my schedule. Just like eating, I make time for it. Usually I spend 45-60 minutes at least four times a week exercising. Sometimes it is a fitness class, swimming, using the treadmill/ elliptical, or even a home DVD workout.
Tips for other moms: Don’t make excuses! If you look for a reason to not exercise you will find one. Set a schedule and really try to stick to it. You can start simply by doing squats while watching TV or biceps curls with a couple of canned goods. Ultimately, just find something that works for you and stick to it!
Set small goals and just keep working at it. You can do it!
