Ashley Mozingo

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley, and I am a stay at home mom to two girls, Paislee, 3 and Keely, 1. My husband is in the Coast Guard, and is currently stationed at a Coast Guard unit on Camp Lejune. We have been married for five years now and have spent two of those years in Alaska, where Paislee was born, and two in Maine, where we had Keely. We were lucky to get stationed here in 2012, and call North Carolina "home". We were both born and raised in different cities in eastern North Carolina, and we are super excited to get to spend some time here with our girls and introduce them to some of our favorite places that we had as children. Before I met my husband, I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Communications. I have a love for writing, and a huge passion for being a mom, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write about my experiences and exciting moments of this rocky ride that we all call 'Motherhood'.

Keeping the Pounds Off

As the weather gets cooler and the season is filled with my favorite flavors of pumpkin and spice I look to a mom group for motivation. It is amazing that that the park can be filled with great exercise for the girls and me. I have been fortunate to meet other moms at the park that are part of a great workout group. As the girls get older they can now join me with my yoga workouts. It warms my heart and I am really looking forward to the ab group challenge this week. I use to love doing abs, but with my abdominal surgeries have found it really hard to do them. A little motivation goes a long way.

It is funny here in the south I get more motivated to work out I. The fall with the cooler weather and less bugs. I am so excited to step into fall with both feet and hopefully come out lighter.

Here are a few tricks I do with my kids so we can workout together.
1- use the stroller even if they can walk and ride your bike so you can go further.
2- have your kids cheer you on
3- include them with abs, stretches, push ups
4- have them count
5- put the music on and have them dance.
6- distract them in another room if you need to.
7- get your partner involved.
8- take turns ” being the coach”
9- get in a routine
10- make it fun for all!
Hope these tip help… Have a healthy one!
