Lily, talk to us about your family, how old are your kids? 

Bella is 3 and Mikey is 2. They are a little less than a year apart.


You mentioned that fitness is a big part of your life.  How do you find the time to stay active with two young ones? 

I fit it in where I can. I used to workout when they were napping, but now they’re at the age where they don’t want to nap, so I make it fun and get them involved. My daughter especially loves to workout with me, she's asking me daily if we can do yoga.


Do you plan your workouts in advance or do you simply squeeze it in when you find a moment for yourself?

My workouts are planned ahead. I am a Beach Body health coach, currently hosting and participating in monthly challenges to keep me accountable.


Why is it important for you to keep a balanced lifestyle? Kids, work, and fitness. 

I've always needed a schedule to keep me organized. If there wasn't a schedule or a balance of everything I'd loose track of time. 


What advice would you give to new moms who want to incorporate more healthy habits in their life?

Your kids are always watching you. Whatever you do, they want to do it as well. Start a routine, and a workout program. Don't be afraid to fail, in your kid's eyes - you can not fail at anything.
