The Life as a Fit Mom eBook Series, contains six books in one volume, created from nearly eight years of writing about my life as a fit mom on my blog, Mama Sweat. I cover the chaos during the pregnancy of my fourth and final child and juggling a newborn and toddlers, to sharing workouts with tweens (who don't want you to blog about them anymore). The posts on this website are a sample of what you'll find inside the eBook series. If you'd like to be notified about special offers please sign up here.
There are a lot of books out there that tell you how to get your body back after baby. They skip that part about when you'll be able to do all that with a baby in your arms or a toddler attached to your leg. In Hot (Sweaty) Mamas: Five Secrets to Life as a Fit Mom (Andrews McMeel 2011), co-author Laurie Kocanda and I, help moms figure out how and when they can include fitness in their life as they juggle the demands of motherhood. What's more, we don't really care if you get your pre-baby body back, or not. We do care about making fitness a family affair and helping moms raise fit kids.
Speaking of raising fit kids, I am also the author of the children’s book series for the Go! Go! Sports Girls, 32-page illustrated books that explore social-emotional growth through sport in engaging stories that empower children to "Dream Big and Go For It!" The books include fun factual information throughout the pages and children can bring their own sports stories to life with a plush doll, sold separately or in a "Read & Play" set, that encourages creative play through sport. The books include:
Another children’s book I wrote, published in 2003 (mere weeks before giving birth to twins), is See Mom Run (Breakaway Books 2011) that follows the journey of a little girl helping her mother train for a marathon, which ends in a fun run with mother and daughter. The story has come to life for me as I raise my four children.
I am also the author of Becoming an Ironman: First Encounters with the Ultimate Endurance Event (Breakaway Books 2001), a collection of stories from people who competed in their first ironman triathlon, sandwiched between my own two Ironman triathlon finishes in 1999 and 2002.
