I became a mom 8 years ago this week.  Wow how time flies!  I've since had 2 additional children.  In that time I've also had the priviledge to work with lots of moms with children of their own.  We've worked one on one and in a group setting.  During that time, I've learned a lot about the challenges and opportunities that working out as a mom with small children can provide.  I still believe, in the depths of my soul, that as a mother you do an incredible service to your children to workout around them.  They learn from your example

My oldest competed in her second triathlon last weekend.  It was wonderful being a spectator to such a sport!  A sport I love competing in and now get to share with her.

Bullying has evolved to dangerous levels for kids. The most recent method of bullying is taking place against kids that can become severly sick or even die from anaphylaxis due to food allergies.   Please click on the 30 second clip or the full PSA (1:33 minutes) for more information.  This is especially helpful for those of you who have children or careers where you work with children.

Get in a workout whenever or where ever you are! Seriously, there are times when I am folding laundry and I start to feel a small ball of frustration because I know I have something else to get done right after...So I see how long I can hold a squat or I do calf raises while folding. If I can't workout (in a grocery store, any place of worship) then I envision it. The more I envision it the more likely I am going to do it.

Hey everyone!I’ve been volunteering my fitness and wellness services at one of the Homeless Shelters in San Jose.  The women and children have been giving me such positive feedback on the benefits of the activities we do together.  They have been feeling more optimistic and are learning about the importance of fitness and taking “mental vacations”. Some have requested I come more often and others suggested I expand to other shelters in the area. So, I’m doing it!

Learning to read labels, portion size and moving everyday lead to our success. Our children need to be given the "tools" to succeed - we spent time reading labels in the grocery store and I created a kit for my daughter to help her with measurements and reading labels. It worked and she still uses the kit and has maintained her weight for the past 3 years! We lost a total of 160lbs together and created a fit healthy lifestyle.

As a mom I hold various roles in my children's lives: chaffeur, disciplinarian, chef, teacher, personal shopper, errand runner, cheerleader, supporter, bank....  The one I hold most precious is that of teacher.  I'm the one who has the first opportunity to instill in my children the values, morales, behaviours, experiences I want them to have to help shape them into young adults and to help them later navigate the often harsh, world we live in.

I am taking public speaking at Lamar and I had to speak on an national issue that needed a solution so I chose childhood obesity.
