Instructor, Michelle Kadera: "Let me tell you all about this motivated momma! Jamie started our program not too long ago. She is already going full force at becoming a healthy mommy! She's enrolled in Body Back and Stroller Strides and she's determined to get in shape. Not to mention, Jamie is full of life. She's whitty, positive, hard working and always smiling! We enjoy every minute with her and we are thankful she is a part of our village! Thanks for bringing a smile to so many of our faces!"
This month we recognize JAMIE TOMLINSON for her accomplishment and dedication to fitness, motherhood and life! Our Brea, Fullerton, Placentia and Yorba Linda FIT4MOM Team would like to say, "THANK YOU, JAMIE," for being part of our Stroller Strides family!"
1. Who are the members of your family?
My husband Daniel, our daughter Bailey (6 months) & our two puppies, Zoey & Tank (a year & a half).
2. What is or was your career?
I teach for Anaheim Elementary School District. I just finished up my full time contract as a 5th grade GATE teacher. Starting in August I'm blessed to join another teacher to share a part time contract teaching 2nd grade.
3. How long have you been a member of FIT4MOM of North Orange County and what has it done for you?
I joined SS in mid March. Since then I've been incredibly blessed to make some pretty great mom friends. It's so awesome to get out of the house with Bailey, get healthy & make friends. It's the perfect trifecta. I'm also getting ready to complete my first round of Body Back - this program has helped me reconnect with ME again. Even though I sincerely love SS it's really great to workout solo a few times a week.
4. What is something that has surprised you about motherhood?
The biggest surprise is how unbelievably joyful I feel looking at my baby girl! Of course I knew I would love her without bounds - but it's so much more than that! I thank God every single day for my beautiful baby girl! I just feel so blessed.
5. Favorite app(s) or website(s)?
Right now - it's Skinnytaste. Also, I read baby articles like crazy.
6. List three current obsessions.
1. My girl 2. My health/fitness & 3. Trying to plan a baby friendly vacay
7. What is your child's/children's favorite thing about you or favorite thing that you do?
Shes only 6 months so it's probably when I feed her. Also, when it's just the two of us I sing & she might be the only person on the planet who likes the way I sound.
8. Any tips for other moms out there?
The best tip I have was given to me by one of my best friends - As a new (clueless) mom she told me to read Baby Wise which I still lovingly refer to as my "baby bible".
