Meet Ashley V!
1.What does motherhood mean to you?
Motherhood is a lot of tears, a lot of laughs and an unconditional love. It’s knowing that you are creating a tiny version of yourself who will always be there for you, just as you will always be there for them. It’s looking back on before you became a mom and seeing just how far you’ve become as a person. It’s pushing yourself to do things you never thought you could, giving birth for example. Most importantly, motherhood is mostly calling your mom to ask what to do!
2.What are you doing to reach your fitness goals?
Besides waking up, making a healthy breakfast for me and Parker, dodging kicks to the face while getting Parker dressed, getting myself dressed while he touches everything he is not supposed to and leaving the house by 8:30... Waking up at 6AM (yep, AM) for the next Body Back session!
3.What has Fit4Mom BCS done for you?
Fit4Mom literally saved me from going to the very dark place where I was headed. Everyone warns you about the sleepless nights and dirty diapers. No one tells you how hard it is adjusting to being home alone all day with a baby that has been crying for 3 hours for no reason at all. Fit4Mom lead me to amazing women who have been in the exact same position as me. I immediately bonded with women who were always there to listen to my problems, help me sleep train, and are always down for a glass of wine. I can’t believe people who I haven’t known for very long care SO much about me. Without Fit4Mom I truly don’t know where I’d be!
4.What is your favorite exercise?
Anything that doesn’t include cardio (JK). Bicep curls, gotta get them babies growin’!
5.What is your proudest moment as a mom?
Definitely hearing Parker say momma for the first time. Made everything worth it!!
6.What are three of your favorite things (besides your family!)?
My cats, they’re literally my best friends. Margaritas. Crafting... that’s why Friday’s are my favorite, Parker (I) get to do a craft after class!
7. Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us or makes you unique.
If you actually know me, this isn’t very surprising... but my dream job would be to work for the CIA. I love investigating and solving mysteries. That’s why I’m such a good Facebook stalker.
8.If we asked your spouse what they think your best qualities are, what would they say?
Ben would probably say I’m a good mom, but probably because I have two children to take care of, him and Parker!
