Marcia's Healthy Slice

Rants and ruminations of an adventurous mama with a strong urge to run.

What's one tip you'd give to moms struggling to make time for physical activity?

Earlier is better. Sneak in exercise at your first opportunity because inevitably life will get in the way.

What's your best advice for moms trying to get healthy?

Rome wasn't built in a day and you don't improve your health that way either. Baby steps. Change one thing. Maybe commit to moving every day, even if it's for just 10 minutes. Maybe it's doing lunges and squats around the living room with a baby in tow (been there done that). All movement counts. Adopt one healthy habit at a time and build from there.

What motivates you to stay active while raising a family?

What's your New Year's Resolution?

Marcia K.

I'm not a huge resolution maker but more of a baby step taker. Early in November this year I was already feeling holiday stress mounting and I vowed this year would be different. I wouldn't be frantically trying to get a suitable holiday card pic on 12/22 and paying $87 in express postage. I'd RSVP in a timely manner and buy all hostess gifts/teacher gifts in bulk. I'd say no for a change. Lo and behold, I've enjoyed success in being proactive rather than seat of the pants because I've gotten things done at my first opportunity rather than procrastinated. I hope to carry that momentum into the new year!
