Librarian, Martial Arts School Owner and Program Director, Mom of 2, Just a lady working out in my basement.
Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Leigh-Ann Morris and her voters for helping us donate to our injured United States military veterans!
Give yourself some grace! A fitness journey is far from perfect, you will make mistakes, you are human. Be kind to yourself when you fall off track. Think of what you would say to a friend. It's never too late to start, there's no perfect day, or perfect plan - I'm 44 and workout at home. You don't need any thing fancy, you CAN do it!
My time dedicated to fitness is MY time. As women, we often put others first -- our kids, family, partners, work. My workout is a time for reflection, self care and is a great stress reliever. That 60-90 minutes makes me a better mom, better boss and better human. Fitness has shown me a loving, supportive female community - willing to lift each other up and fix each others crown. I would like to give back to that community and be a role model for young women.
I would plan a Ladies relaxation retreat, I know some special ladies who work really hard and could use a break. A time for fun, reflection, relaxation and time to READ! And, the rest would going to buying more gym equipment for my basement gym.
