Wisdom for Moms

Doctors, psychologists and other experts knowingly tout the benefits of physical fitness on general well-being. The bottom line is that when we’re out of shape, we don’t feel well and we tire easily.

The break many moms need is simply a walk around the block to feel the fresh air and get their blood flowing. Some mothers need better nutrition — something other than leftover peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches, coffee and fast food. And others need to lie down for a nap. All these ingredients add up to physical fitness.

While it’s sometimes next to impossible to get that needed break, we can make it a priority to take advantage of odd moments here and there. We can get up early and go for a run while our husband is home and before we start our day. We can trade kids with a friend and take a walk in the neighborhood. We can go for a lunch with a co-worker on our lunch break. Many family sports centers and gyms offer free day care for children while parents work out. Weekends are a great time to begin a habit and continue it into the next week.

For many of us with overcrowded schedules, physical fitness is, unfortunately, one of the first things to go. We figure no one but us will notice. Wrong. Whether or not the lack of love for our bodies shows on the outside, we suffer on the inside. Eventually, the damage will be demonstrated in the form of impatience, irritability and general grouchiness. But when a woman feels good about herself, she’s more likely to treat others with goodness.

Hi!! My name is Cortney Weiss, I am a mom of 2 girls, 3 years apart, and with the same birthdays!! I've been married to my loving, godly husband for over 6 years, and I love health and fitness. I raise monarch butterflies year round which the girls love, and we all learn a lot from their life cycle, the good and the bad. It is my passion to help busy mommies become healthier and fit, work one-on-one with like-minded individuals, and help them to succeed in their health and fitness goals. I look forward to learning more about YOU and helping YOU to live a happier, healthier, fitter life. :)
