How to stay fit as a working mom
Who is AMAIA you ask? Any woman who lives with purpose and determination and needs to move through her day with ease (or at least in comfort while she gets her sh*t done!). No matter your role in life, busy is busy, and engaging in a healthy lifestyle can sometimes be a challenge. That's why we have asked a few AMAIA women to share how they kick butt during a typical day.
I am AMAIA 1.0 is about our founder, Katie. She is mom to beautiful and hilarious Naima, a 2-year-old who keeps her oh-so-busy. She works a 9-to-5 job outside of the house and works out at lunch to stay fit. She wears AMAIA clothing so she can chase after her daughter in comfort while still looking on-point in the office.
We asked her to share with us what a typical day looks like kicking butt at being a working mom:
5:30 am: Alarm goes off. Get up, prepare coffee and small pre-run snack.
5:45 am: Get dressed into running gear. My go-to favs are currently the Dharma Bums Mesh Leggings and Bra because they both hold up during higher-intensity workouts.
5:50 am: Go for 30 minute run.
6:20 am: Return home, take quick shower, get dressed. I love wearing the L'URV Break of Day Tee as part of my sweat-it-out-at-work-but-still-look-on-point-in-meetings attire. Prepare breakfast with family.
7:15 am: Leave for work.
8:00 am to 12:15 pm: Work work work work work (yeah you know what song is stuck in your head now).
12:15 pm to 1:00 pm: Jump-rope and HIIT workout, cool down, stretch. The L'URV Aquarius Dream Tee and Lunar Eclipse Shorts are my favs to keep cool during that lunch-time heat.
1:00 pm to 1:15 pm: Eat a quick lunch.
1:15 pm to 4:00 pm: Work work... I won't put you through it again ;)
4:45 pm: Pick up daughter at daycare = BEST PART OF MY DAY. She is such an angel it's ridiculous.
5:00 to 8:00 pm: Family time. Prepare supper with boyfriend, play with daughter, walk our dog, get daughter ready for bed, read some books.
8:00 pm to 10:00 pm: Time to chill out: read, watch TV with boyfriend, prepare lunch for next day.
10:00 pm: Bedtime.
Ouph! I'm tired just reading all that.
