Busy life, family, work, schedules etc.! I hear you! It is hard taking time and caring for yourself. Eating on the run, no time for workouts and stress rules, at times. I too have these challenges! It's about taking the small steps to keep you healthy enough to maintain that schedule and to be present for work and your family. Preventative care, is the key!
The time that is spent by parent with their children is one of the most important for the development of the child as we as increasing the bonding ties between the two. Exercising for kids has also been cited as one of the most essential art in their overall growth.

Why is it so important to me that my daughter likes to exercise? And, by "exercising", I mean both activities, structured around the gyms, studios, and soccer and other fields, and the games and other active pursuits, which she likes while not even realizing that she is working out (such as trampoline jumping or running with the dog).
I think, in the big scheme of things my children are pretty active.Winter is tough though, especially this half rainy, half snowy start of winter where they really can't go outside. But summer, they're always outside doing something.

January 29, 2014 Thanks to everyone who donated their time, energy, talents and money we were able to raise enough funds to pay for our 501(c)(3) application!

The willingness to help displaced women and children in our community gain access to fitness and wellness services makes all the difference for our organization and community.
