From my casual comments and comments from those I coach, I know that many working moms struggle to maintain their weight. Not only is that costly because of all of the extra clothes one needs, but there are also health risks. I'm not a fitness expert. However, I've been fairly healthy most of my life and have been able to keep my weight constant. The five tips from me and the fitness articles from the New York Times listed below may be just what you need to become lean an mean in 2017.
Keep me posted on your progress!

|My family at The White House|
Over the past two years, we have witnessed the premature loss of celebrities and the loss of family members and friends who were like family. These losses have been a HUGE reminder to me that tomorrow is not promised. I know that I am not alone. Based on what I've read on social media, it's been a rough time for lots of those I know and love. Still, in the midst of these hard times, we have experienced triumphs and victories.
One of my greatest blessings is having the presence and love of my mom. We were fortunate enough to visit the White House as a family this holiday season. Sharing the experience with her made it more special. I pray that we have many more years to celebrate life with her. This experience inspired a poem that I wrote below. Enjoy!!!

My New Motto: "Life is Hectic. Wear Eye Cream."
I recently became acquainted with Carley Weissert, an industrious young mom of one who is trying to build a business. Besides being industrious, Carley is the kind of girl who... loves pumpkin-flavored everything and doesn't care who knows it. Carley is a senior director with The Beauty Counter, a cosmetics company that is the brainchild of Gregg Renfrew, a retail executive who has embraced the cause of cleaner cosmetics. The company's purpose is to get safer cosmetics in the hands of as many people as possible. They use no harmful ingredients in their products because they believe that women can be beautiful and healthy. What a novel idea...
Once I heard about the company's noble purpose, I wanted to help promote the company. Real talk, their products are natural and effective. I've been using their eye cream for several weeks and I can attest that the products work well! As luck would have it, Carley emailed me. We talked. I liked her. So, I decided to share her story with all of you. Below is some information about Carley. Once you learn more about her, and the products she sells, I'm sure you'll want to place an order so here's the link, The Beauty Counter.
(Seriously, the eye cream is amazing! It's got a great texture that just melts into every crease so that you have a more youthful look.)
