I am one of those people who likes to exercise. Honestly, I need to exercise. It lifts my spirits, energizes me, and makes me healthier and happier. Exercise has been a daily part of my life since my teens, and I never had too much trouble fitting it into my life…until I became a mom. As most of you know, motherhood shakes things up a bit. Fitting exercise into my daily schedule is not as easy as it once was! Authors Kara Douglass Thom and Laurie Kocanda understand the challenges related to making time for exercise. Not only have they experienced the challenges themselves, but they have spoken with thousands of women about finding ways to be fit as moms. In Hot (Sweaty) Mamas: Five Secrets to Life as a Fit Mom, Thom and Kocanda encourage all moms (those who love to exercise, those who don’t love to exercise, and those who have never exercised) to make fitness a part of their lives.
