My son watches us live an active lifestyle…

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 Marrah!

Describe you background as it relates to health and fitness.

I smoked for over 15 years, and when I became pregnant with my son I quit! I am two years smoke free now!

I was also able to pick up running again because I quit smoking, which led to becoming a Fitfam ambassador, running competitively, as well as a SweatPink ambassador! I also go for my Zumba certificate next week.

Also while pregnant with Remmy I had Gestational Diabetes, which was very hard but I ate carefully, poked my finger three times a day, but stayed off insulin the whole time!! My son also had a milk allergy when he was younger, so I am a PRO at reading labels between my GD and his allergy!

I am very into nutrition, GD help, running and fitness now! My son not only changed my life in traditional ways but also many other ways!!

When do you fit in your physical fitness?

I work out at least 5 times a week, sometimes it’s a solo run when my bf is home, or a run with my son in the jogging stroller. In between my runs I do strength training at home when little man is napping or incorporating him in my workouts!

How do you make healthy eating a priority?

I always read labels, we don’t do microwave meals, we do lots of fresh fruits and veggies. In the summer we utilize our farmers markets and also have our own garden. I also do a lot of online health food shopping such as Thrive Market.

How do you get your kids involved in a healthy lifestyle?

My son watches us live an active lifestyle, and we like to take him for walks, bike rides, stroller runs, and walks to the park!

What are your three tips for those who are struggling?

My three best tips are-

1.  the more exercise you do the more energy you acquire

2. quit smoking or stay smoke free the best thing you can do for your health

3. start small, make small changes and work up! I recently helped a girl to start losing weight, and we started small!

Calling all Healthy Motivating Mommas!

Since we are about a week away from Mother’s Day, and we’re talking about healthy living moms and families, I have something fantastic to share!

A few years ago, I was lucky enough to attend the Moms Meet WOW Summit, and it was a fantastic experience! I learned so much about making healthy choices for our family and I had a lot of fun connecting with other moms.

This year, the summit is in Chicago, so I don’t have that far to go from Minnesota. I’m so excited to attend! The awesome folks at Moms Meet also gave me a code to share with all of you awesome mommas! Use EXD15 to get 15% off your Moms Meet WOW Summit Registration! Let me know if you’re thinking of going, and I’ll tell you how awesome it is and maybe we can connect!
