How do you fit fitness into your everyday life?
It’s tough to fit in, but I have made it a priority in my daily life because it makes me feel so positive. I have a great support system (my mother in law comes to watch my girls), which means I can spin at one of the am classes. I feel that I need to get my fitness in earlier in the day to ensure I won’t come up with excuses not to go. Also, I try to get in one yoga class a week to strengthen and stretch my body out. It’s my opinion that yoga and spinning are a good complement to each other.
