It's Never Too Late to Exercise

Last week, I did a Losing Weight After Baby podcast with one of my favorite people in the world...MY MOM!

My mom has been my cheerleader all of my life. If you were to meet her, you would probably say something like, "Wow, is she that happy all the time?" She is the most joyful person I have ever known.

I guess you could say her primary way to burn calories for most of her life was through laughing. But now things have changed! For the last 4 years, she's been coming with me to spin class, twice a week, faithfully! This is quite a miracle because for the first 55 years of her life, she has not exercised at all!

So you see moms, it's never too late to make exercise a priority. My mom has set aside 2 hours each week for exercise and it's been a huge benefit. She feels healthier and knows her heart is getting stronger. And the older we get, the more important this becomes.

Don't worry about your past. Think of my mom. If she can start exercising after 55 years of doing nothing, you can start too!
