What’s the future of fitness? Check out the latest article on my Working (Out) Mama column on The Stir this week, all about what we can learn from kids. “I believe the children are our future..” (It’s in your head now, isn’t it? Sorry). This is a topic I’ve written on before, but I think these four points are really what it all boils down to – do you agree? Check out my article over there: 4 Workout Lessons Moms Can Learn From Their Kids.

Speaking of motherhood, I was so excited to read yesterday that Lindsay from The Lean Green Bean is expecting #BabyBean! (Their photos to announce the news are so cute). Congrats to Lindsay and her husband Brett, I can’t wait to follow along with her pregnancy! 🙂
Tomorrow on Fit Mama Friday I’m featuring a fellow Sweat Pink Ambassador, Susan Fishback, who writes Simply Modern Dance. Susan has two boys and lives in beautiful Cape Cod. While she’s been a dancer all her life, Susan took up running a year ago, as a way of pushing herself out of her comfort zone. It’s interesting to read about how it feels for a new runner who is new to the sport and finds it challenging – it reminds me how much hard work is involved in doing anything you love. Please check in tomorrow and support Fit Mama Susan!
In other news, my half marathon training post next week will be interesting…I put my back out yesterday morning and am trying to recover. How did I do that? Sneezing. I am not even kidding. As well as my training update, there will likely be a post on dealing with back pain coming up!!
Have you ever had back pain? Isn’t it the worst?
Have you ever tried something purely because you knew it would challenge you?
If you’re preggo or have had kids, did you have a fun way you announced you were expecting?
