In this case, it was a weekend visit with Mandy Berg–a mom of six who totally motivated me to exercise.
While our husbands watched over our children, Mandy and I sat cross-legged in her guest room and talked about some of the real problems moms face when it comes to making exercise a daily habit.
And we recorded our conversation for you!
This wasn’t just “any” podcast for me. This was a chance for me to share some of my most personal challenges with a dear friend.
- Why is it that I’m always willing to put quality exercise on the back burner?
- How can I involve my children in the process of getting fit?
- What can I do to finally get over all those mental blocks that stop me from really working out?
- What are the best ideas that Mandy–a mom who has always made time for exercise and has motivated dozens and dozens of women in her community–would want to tell moms like me (who desperately want to do the same?).
This podcast is one of my favorites. (I know I always say that, but it’s true.)
As a little side note, when I got home from our trip to the Berg home and opened my computer, the audio file I’d recorded had completely disappeared. I almost cried. But after some encouragement from my husband and some google searches for solutions, I was able to get it back. (I was so excited.)
If making time for exercise as a busy mom has ever felt impossible to you, you need to listen to this podcast. Maybe you can even listen while you’re out on a run!
