Our September mom of the month is Katelyn and we could not be more excited that she found us! She is such a sweet soul and motivator. She treats everyone that she meets with such a kind heart and would help with anything! Her daughter, Samantha, is such a great workout buddy and is always making sure mama has good form ;) Her sweet little man Connor just enjoys mamas smiles, singing and tickles and of course her husband, Sam, makes it to all the family strides. We love having her in our village and hope you enjoy learning more about her!
When did you join FIT4MOM?
I joined FIT4MOM in June 2017
What classes do you attend?
Who is your workout buddy and their age?
My workout buddies are Samantha who will be 3 in October and Connor who is 8 months old.
What is your favorite thing about FIT4MOM?
My favorite thing about FIT4MOM is that working out has become fun! I get to get fit and socialize with amazing moms at the same time all while having my kiddos right there with me!
How has FIT4MOM changed your lifestyle choices?
I wasn't sure how I was ever going to workout once I had kids, because I've always been uncomfortable with the thought of gym childcare. FIT4MOM has shown me that I can prioritize my health and physical fitness while still prioritizing my kiddos too! I think it's so great that my kids get to watch me make healthy choices and they get to see how fun staying active can be!
What did you do before staying at home?
Moved a lot...seriously. I got my degree in Journalism, but my husband and I moved so much for his job that I never really had a career before kids. We always knew that me being a stay at home mommy was a priority for us, so I plan on doing the whole career thing later.
What is your favorite beverage?
Definitely coffee. Although seltzer water is a close second, and when I'm not breastfeeding wine will be back in the mix.
What is your favorite dessert?
Hmmm everything... I'm a totally sweet lover. If I have to pick though I'd probably say a decadent ice cream treat or anything a la mode.
Given 4 hours of free babysitting... what do you do?
If it was for me alone during the day I would go get a massage, then enjoy a good cup of coffee while I read a book. If it's for a date night with my hubby then a really yummy dinner out, and a couples massage. Basically a massage just sounds amazing.
What is your ultimate child free vacation destination?
I would love to go to Italy and travel through the wine country there.
How has becoming a mother changed you?
Before becoming a mother I was always focused on what my career would be and never sure what was right for me, but when I became a mother I truly found my purpose.
I am happiest when...
My whole little family is together just enjoying life.
