Focused on Lifelong Health and Fitness: Motivating Mom Tiffany

Knowing myself, my limits, and staying true to my family…

I love hearing stories from other moms, especially those who are committed to living a healthy lifestyle and raising a healthy family. I’m very inspired by other moms and I love to hear how they stay committed to setting a healthy example for their little ones and raising a healthy family.

Today we’re hearing from Motivating Mom Tiffany.

I remember meeting Tiffany at the first Sweat Pink BlogFest at IDEA World. I had already followed her blog and social media and I found her so inspiring! In the years since, Tiffany has become a mom to an adorable little guy and she still manages to make health and fitness a priority.

Disney Springs {Walt Disney World Day 2 Part 1}

Disney Springs is a great place to visit during your Walt Disney World stay. There is no admission to enter and so many things to do to keep you in the Disney spirit without going to the parks.

We always take a day and visit Disney Springs – formerly Disney Marketplace or Downtown Disney. It’s a great way to still experience the magic of Disney without spending a lot.
