Happy Monday! Today we are highlighting one of our instructors, Kat! She is certified in Stroller Strides and Fit4Baby since June 2017. Here's a bit from Kat: My why: I never enjoyed working out on my own. I could talk myself out of a run or a workout session better than anyone. When I found FIT4MOM I knew it was something different and I knew I wanted to be apart of it. I understood how it felt to be a participant and I wanted to be able to give all the mamas the same loving feeling I had.

Fit4Baby is perfect for any expectant woman looking for a great workout! You don't have to modify any part of the workout since it is created by our trained instructors JUST FOR YOU! Each Fit4Baby class is an hour long and includes a warmup, cardio, strength, and core work and concludes with a cool-down and guided meditation to help you connect and prepare for delivery.

Prenatal fitness is essential to keep mama and baby healthy and strong! We'd love to have you join us at Fit4Baby where our instructors are trained specifically for expectant mamas! We have classes twice a week at our indoor studio space, and it's a great way to connect with other pregnant mamas! Your first class is free, so tag a pregnant friend below and we will see you at class!

Stroller Strides is a full-body workout where mamas can get a GREAT workout and bring their kids along! It’s fun for everyone and we’d love to have you! • • We have classes in the morning, evening, and weekends! Comment below and we will set you up with a free class!

Thursday’s are for Stroller Strides, playground time, and lunch with friends! We had eight mamas and over 14 kids!! Community, friends, and fitness. I just love these mamas and their kids!

Bump into Fall Fitness is TONIGHT at 6:00pm and we’d love to see you there! We’re going to have a fun Fit4Baby class, which is our prenatal program! There will be some drawings and prizes - you don’t want to miss this!

We train in the rain 💪🏼 A little sprinkle won’t stop us from fitting our workout in! The kids don’t mind either, just pull those shades down and play some peek-a-boo! • • • Join us at Veteran’s Park and Pleasant Ridge Park for Stroller Strides! We have morning and evening classes available- and Saturday’s too! Join us! Comment below and I can send you out full class schedule!

Come sleep deprived, come even if it took you an extra 30 minutes to get out of the house because of a blowout or missing shoe; come with no makeup on, come with spit up on your shirt, come with a baby who has acid reflux, come with five-day-old-unwashed-hair, come in non-branded “normal” workout wear, come if you breastfeed, come if you use formula; just C O M E, Mama. You’re welcome here, just as you are. ・・・ 📸 @fit4mommoco via @pagesofgray #strengthinmotherhood #themotherhoodisreal

DAY 5: MOM BOD AFFIRMATIONS CARD + GRATITUDE JOURNALING Repeat after us: I LOVE MY MOM BOD BECAUSE IT IS STRONG. I LOVE MY MOM BOD BECAUSE IT WORKS DAY IN AND DAY OUT TO RAISE TINY HUMANS. I LOVE MY MOM BOD BECAUSE IT CREATED LIFE, MADE ME A BIRTH MOM/SURROGATE, OR MADE ME A PROUD ADOPTIVE PARENT. I LOVE MY MOM BOD BECAUSE SHE IS RESILIENT, SHE IS FULL OF GRACE, AND SHE IS THE DEFINITION OF STRENGTH. Got it?! Don't ever forget it. For the last day of the #5DaysofThanksandGiving Challenge, fill out your last affirmations card you got as a download when you sign up for the challenge (at blog.FIT4MOM.com under "5 Days of Thanks + Giving). Show us why you're grateful for your #mombod, because we think you're a total babe, inside and out. Upload a pic of your affirmations card to the 'gram, and as always, don't forget to tag us, @FIT_4_MOM and use the campaign hashtag,#5DaysofThanksandGiving, so we can see + share! Also, today concludes this gratitude challenge, so we want to say a huge THANK YOU to all that participated! We loved seeing your pictures every day and what you're thankful for. How did the weekly habit of journaling go this week? If you want to keep it going, we really encourage you to; it's a nice way to reflect on the day, and when it seems there is nothing we are grateful for due to a bad day, it forces us to find something, which can help boost morale and mood and encourage a more peaceful sleep. What mama doesn't need that?! You can print out more blank gratitude sheets here and tuck them into a folder or create a little journal for yourself. Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead, Mama. We're so glad you make FIT4MOM Lexington a family. Happy holidays!

DAY 4: GIVING CHALLENGE + GRATITUDE JOURNALING Although we are proud participants in philanthropic efforts all year long, November is the perfect time to think about giving or giving back if you've been looking for a reason - 'tis the season to give thanks AND give what you can; whether that's through donating your time, money, products, services, or gently used items that can go to a new home. Today, our daily challenge for the #5DaysofThanksandGiving gratitude challenge is encouraging you to GIVE. Have an extra $5 you could donate? Consider buying a coffee/tea to the person behind you in the Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts line today. Know of a local food drive? Bring in a few canned goods. Looking for somewhere to donate clothes you recently got rid of? Find a local women's shelter. Have extra time? Find a volunteer organization near you that could use some extra hands-on-deck this month. (volunteer.org is a great resource). How will you give back today or this month? Show us! Add a photo to Insta and use the #5DaysofThanksandGiving hashtag so we can see!

DAY 3: GRATITUDE LOVE NOTE+ GRATITUDE JOURNALING Happy Day 3 of #5DaysofThanksandGIving! Today, we challenge you to send some love to another mama, a friend, your partner/spouse, your parents, a stranger, a co-worker...anyone. When you sign up for this challenge on our blog, http://blog.fit4mom.com/5-days-of-thanks-and-giving You'll get everything you need to complete each daily challenge, like today's gratitude love note prompt. We're also big fans of saving the trees and reducing our environmental footprint, so you can also save today's love note to your phone and send to a friend via text or email. Show us who you wrote your note to by uploading the picture to your social and use #5DaysofThanksandGiving. We're grateful for YOU!

DAY 2: GROUNDED IN GRATITUDE MEDITATION + GRATITUDE JOURNALING We know the hustle and bustle of the holiday season can lead to chaos. That's why our Founding Mama, @LisaDruxman, recorded a special grounding meditation just for you! Get cozy, close your eyes, and let the calm of this meditation replace any holiday blues.
