Let’s face it, working out and achieving your health and fitness goals is hard work. But moms face even more challenges: being up all night with the kids, demanding work schedules, after school activities, social and family obligations – it’s near impossible to find time for yourself, let alone time to hit the gym. I know time gets pretty scarce for me as a full-time working mom of four. So, when can I take care of me? And when I do have time for myself, how can I not feel so guilty about taking that time?
Finding that family/work-life balance is challenging. Moms certainly want to look and feel their best but many times they end up shaming their bodies or not allowing themselves to ask for help when they need it. Model, actress and mom of two young children, Molly Sims, knows this all too well — her experience as a busy working mom forced her to step up her self-care game and – in addition to eating right and exercising – take some extra steps to help get her body back. Like most moms, she juggles a demanding career associated with long days and travel, all while managing to raise a family and lead a healthy lifestyle.
Danity Donnaly recently had the chance to talk with Molly about her personal story of post-baby body struggles and offer tips to help moms look and feel their best. And believe it or not, even though she is a well-known supermodel with a team surrounding her, she does struggle with these same issues that we do!
