Get To Know Me

There may be times when the moms in my class wonder why I teach the Shop n’ Stroll program and why I blog about it. Patrons of the Sevenoaks Shopping Centre may walk passed me in the mall and wonder where this little 4’ 11’’ ball of fire gets her enthusiasm for what she does. The answers are not just because of my years of interest in fitness and health, but simply because I have first hand experience on how this program can benefit you and your baby.

A little pick-me-up.

Longer hemlines and fewer tight items

Good news for parents!  This season, shopping is a bit less stressful for parents as retailers shift away from provocative fashions for girls and toward more demure attire. “The trend is less skin, more layers,” says Lisa Wolstromer, senior marketing director at Cherry Hill and Moorestown, N.J. malls.

Tips For Your At Home Work Out

When I decide to put a routine together for the moms in my Shop n’ Stroll class I look for exercises that mom can do at home. I know it’s not easy coming out with baby when naps are in conflict or baby is teething and not up to spending 45 minutes in the stroller. So, when mom can’t come or she wants to exercise more at home, I know that she can feel confident doing the exercises that she learned in my class.

Happy Anniversary!

Today marked my one year anniversary with the Shop n’ Stroll program here in Sevenoaks Shopping Centre. I’ve had a great time, and I’ve met some wonderful moms and their children. On behalf of myself, Runners and Booties Fitness, the moms that have been to the program, and the moms that will soon come; I can’t thank Sevenoaks Shopping Centre enough. You continue to demonstrate that you care about the health and well being of your community, and I am very proud to be part of your Project Happy team.

Lunch basics beyond ham and cheese!

So its week one of back to school.  Parents are smiling ear to ear and kids are still in a bit of a daze.  You may be able to get away with packing a ham and cheese sandwich,  juice box, granola bar and an apple for a few days but soon those little eyes will wander to what the kid next to them is eating . . . and you are probably going to hear about it!  Or that ham and cheese sandwich will come back to haunt you in a few days (weeks? eek!) when the backpack gets cleaned out! 

Shop 'n Stroll

It’s funny when I’m in the middle of a routine and I look over and one of the little ones in a carrier is staring at me. Those little eyes bugged out at me saying, “what are you doing?”  I smile back at those questioning and adorable eyes while coaching the moms to do another set of squat jumps. Baby smiles back at me. Then it comes to mind - is baby paying attention to what mom is doing?
