Life as a working mom is full of challenges, most of which I wouldn't change for the world. But sometimes I'd like more time for myself. I exercise when I can. I've had some setbacks when it comes to running, and I fear I will never get back to where I was pre-pregnancy. But I'm definitely stronger in a lot of ways thanks to yoga, and of course to playing with my big, active toddler.

I also try to eat healthy (although I do have a sweet tooth), and have made a concerted effort to cook and eat more vegetables so I can set a good example for my family.
