Congratulations Cheryl! Cheryl is very dedicated to Strollers In Motion with her daughter Emry! She is a very busy mom and still finds time to come to class four times a week! She not only has little Emry but has two step daughters, a husband, and has a part time job (oh and they just got done moving their house with no notice)! And she still came to class!!!
She is an amazing person! I am very excited for everyone to take a walk in her favorite shoes! Find out what they are by reading below! Congratulaitons again Cheryl!
Great job Cheryl! You look amazing! Thank you for coming to classes!
I have two favorite pairs of shoes. My black flip flops and my heeled boots.
Flip flops have always been a favorite type of shoe because they are so easy. My flip flops can go with anything and in them I can do everything. Run, walk, chase, slip on and off and I wear them all year round. Yes, that will be me in the grocery store in the middle of winter wearing my flip flops.
My boots are a favorite because it dresses up my daily life a little. In them I get to add a little glamour to my day. I get out of my workout clothes and into something that makes me feel more like a pretty woman rather then a busy mommy.
Her favorite shoes
Why do you feel you walk in these particular shoes?
Key word COMFORT. Both of these shoes are so comfortable which is a plus. Being that I am a mom to a 1 yr old and step mom to 5 and 6 yr old I am busy. I need to be able to get up and go when ever needed. Wether it be to play, go to the store, take a walk or go outside I can always count on my flip flops for quick and easy comfort. I am also a wife and my husband deserves to see me dressed up a little every now and then too. I am able to wear these boots with dresses/leggings, skirts, jeans and feel pretty while being comfortable at the same time.
Did you start Mommy Movement Fitness to lose weight?
I 100% joined MMF to lose weight! While I was pregnant I gained 39 pounds. Yikes :) Although I enjoyed every pound of dessert I ate in the mean time it was no good afterwards. After Emry was born I no longer had an excuse and wanted to get my body back. It was early 2010 and cold outside so I would go to the mall and walk with Emry before it opened. That was when I was sooooooo blessed to be passed by Tonya and her bunch of fit mommies. They were all so nice and welcoming. I joined the next week.
What formats do you do? Have you done the challenge?
I do Strollers in Motion. I love love love it. I have been doing it for about 9 months and have lost a little over 30 pounds (and counting). My lingering baby weight is gone along with another 10 pounds. My body is stronger and better looking then ever before. I have always been a person that enjoyed exercising but lacked the motivation to stay with a consistent program or routine. When I miss Strollers in Motion I actually get bummed out. I look forward to the intense workout that Tonya provides and all the lovely ladies that also come daily. I remember telling my husband "its a group of moms, how much of a work out can it really be? I'm sure it will be better then my lame daily walk though." Boy was I wrong! Strollers in Motions is beyond Amazing. It is by far the best work out program I have particapated in. These moms in this class work their Butts off literally, every morning while getting to set great examples for our children.
I have not done the challenge but plan to on the next session in 2011. I wish I would have taken measrements before starting MMF because the results would have been fun to see. At this point I will gladly accept the 30 pounds and 3 pants sizes I have dropped.
How has Mommy Movement Fitness changed your life and/or your families life? Be as specific as you can!
MMF has changed my life in many ways. I always felt selfish by putting myself first but MMF has put a different perspective on that for me. MMF has helped me to become a stronger and better role model for my kids. A happier and more fit wife for my husband and a more relaxed and energized person for myself. I have found that when I skip strollers in motion I feel tired and cranky. If as a mother I don't take care of myself how am I able to give the best possible "me" to my family. MMF is such a wonderful part of my life.
