The FAB in FAB Haute Mama stands for Fit & Beautiful. When I started this blog, fitness was at the top of my list. Prior to pregnancy, I started running again. I joined the NYC chapter of Black Girls Run, trained and did two 5K’s. I was actually pregnant but did not know it during the last 5K. Fast forward, 39 weeks and 3 days later most of which was spent on bed rest, I became a mom. A week out of the hospital, I started going for walks. They say to wait at least 6 weeks before exercise but I was desperate to feel the air on my face. Then I got sick all over again. After a few months of illness, doctor’s visits, a hospital stay and surgery, I was ready to get back into running.
What I didn’t expect was how hard it would be to start again. I was out of shape and bed rest was a big part of that. I was also tired and sleep deprived. I had my heart set on starting the couch to 5K plan but I could barely run for 10 seconds much less 30. Needless to say it has been a hard road, yet I meet many moms that say “I wish I could run.” There are a million and one reasons exercise gets put to the back of anyone’s list especially moms. I get it but I refuse to justify those reasons when the facts are simple: I am the reason! I am the reason I exercise. I am the reason I don’t.
And so Team FAB Mama was born. Team FAB Mama is to busy moms who work at home, stay at home, or work in an office. New mamas, seasoned mamas and mamas-to-be. Maybe you can’t get to the gym or you don’t have a sitter. Maybe you feel more comfortable around mamas just like you. After all a fellow mama can relate to your day-to-day life and workout. Let’s do this together mamas. Being a part of a team is a great way to get moving, stay accountable, encouraged and meet your health and fitness goals.
