The Fit Dish Interview

Here’s my exclusive interview for The Fit Dish!  I thought this was an awesome idea for a blog post and what better way to get to know the rest of the #fitfam.

What is my proudest achievement to date?

My proudest achievement to date is becoming a mom.  I knew that having a child changed your life dramatically, but all we sometimes hear is the negative side of it: the lack of sleep, crying, etc.  What everyone fails to say is that we’ve never known true love until you have a child.  The minute I held Hayden I felt like what was missing was found.  It’s the hardest work being a parent, but at the end of the day, we do our best, hope for the best and it will be enough.  My life is forever better because of that sweet girl.

What keeps me passionate?

My inner strength and drive to want to be more, to do more, and achieve more keeps me motivated and passionate about life, running and fitness.  I love setting a goal and working to achieve it.  I didn’t always believe in myself and what I was capable of doing.  I trust myself now.

What makes you the most proud to be a woman?

I think the thing that makes me most proud about being a woman is our strength.  I think that women are able to persevere in tough situations.  I think that we are intuitive and rely on our instincts.

Why do you think it is important for women to unite as a sisterhood and empower each other?

There is strength in numbers.  When we travel alone, we can’t accomplish quite as much.  By empowering each other, we create a strong bond and we can work together to do so much more.

What are some examples of small ways we can empower the women around us in our day to day life?

I think that we can empower other women by being ourselves, being able to laugh ourselves and realizing there is no such thing as perfection.  Often women do not see themselves doing or achieving certain things until they see someone they relate to go for those big goals and dreams.  I think by inspiring each other and living our own truth every day is a great way to empower women.  Even though we may all start at different places, but we can work to encourage each other to do big things!

What is one piece of advice you would like to share with the Fit Fam?

Find the ability to laugh at yourself and not take yourself too seriously.  I think that once you learn to accept that you have faults but are willing to work on them is when the real progress begins. It takes time to become comfortable with yourself.  It’s so freeing when you finally do.  I am unapologetically me.mumfordandsons

  1. Great interview and inspiring answers! I agree 100% about women having tremendous strength. I’ve always thought we had this uncanny ability to withstand any storm life throws us. We also have a high pain threshold; childbirth. marathons. Ect…

    • Oh yes!! I think women are naturally doers in certain situations too. I think that we just react differently to things and jump in vs fleeing. I always loved Steel Magnolias for that saying. That’s what we are Steel Magnolias. Tough, strong but still feminine. 🙂
