While it’s really no surprise to me (a fellow busy mom) the statistics concern me: According to the Surgeon General’s Physical Activity and Health report….
Women are less likely than men to be physically active.
And over 60 percent of women aren’t getting enough exercise to provide them with the maximum benefits of wellness!
Consider these awesome benefits for moms who exercise!!
(Print, save, or “like” and follow this post for a friendly reminder on days you need some motivation to get moving.) 🙂

There may be people who disagree. I would have said this is a bunch of crap a year ago and I had one child who was three. And I did have time to spare and I hated how I felt about ME. But you know what, it wasn’t that I didn’t want to. It was because I didn’t know how. I didn’t know where to begin. That’s where I come in. Yes, me. If you would like to talk and have questions on how you can get started with doing even 5 minutes of exercise a day, contact me. I want to help.
