The Juggle is Real! Being a mama of two little girls with a growing company that demands long days and sleepless nights, staying healthy, energetic, strong and happy is not a choice for me — it’s a must! We always “do us” last, and, in reality, that is the wrong approach. These are the 6 things I do that help me keep it all together, be #STRONGLIKEAMAMA and help me in my quest to be the strongest I’ve ever been (physically, mentally and emotionally) when I turn 40 in 360 days from now! Oh, and I might as well look good while I’m doing it in Old Navy’s awesome Activewear line.

Green Girl Smoothie
We all know the heart benefits of cardio, and to be #STRONGLIKEAMAMA for our families, we need to keep our hearts healthy. Heart disease is sadly the #1 killer of women, so we can’t mess around. Besides the health benefits, cardio gives me a high like no other. I love to run and swim. They are my natural anti-depressants, and if I go a week or so without them (Mom Life creeps up on us!), I can feel myself getting cranky. And no one is happy when Mama is cranky! I don’t do any more than 30-40 minutes 4 or 5 times a week, on a good week. I know it’s hard to fit it in, but it’s necessary!
