Active Mom Postpartum

28-07-2023 • 49 mins

Today I speak with my fellow Swim Moms, Laura and JoAnne. And while you may think this episode is just an excuse to talk with my friends outside of swim practice, Laura and JoAnne share so much valuable intel on how to make time for your own workouts when your shuttling kids to their sports practices and meets. Laura, a mom of 2, is a recovering triathlete and a Commander in the Coast Guard. JoAnne, a mom of 3, has always used sports as a way to stay fit, but fell off the wagon after her daughter was born. When her oldest daughter was 8, she found her way back to fitness.


These ladies share practical tips on how they balance all of the things that come along with being a mom, while still making time for themselves.

We talk about:

-being active as kids

-becoming a morning person

-different struggles with different age kids

-setting the example for your kids

-different seasons of the year

-done is better than perfect

-making family memories
