Instructor, Elyce Amero: "I’ve known Stephanie since she was 9 years old. To see the woman that she has matured into, not to mention the incredible mother that she is to Rocky, just warms my heart to the core. Steph always comes ready to sweat, and push herself 110%. She is such a positive fun spirit to have in class! So glad I get to enjoy motherhood with you, and continue our special bond. Love you girl! "
This month we recognize STEPHANIE JOHNSON 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, STEPHANIE," for being part of our Stroller Strides family!"
1. Who are the members of your family?
My boyfriend Kevin, 11 month old Rocky and myself!
2. What is or was your career?
I was a dental assistant for 5 years before I resigned to stay at home with Rocky. I am just now getting back into the working world.
3. How long have you been a member of FIT4MOM of North Orange County and what has it done for you?
I was introduced to Stroller Strides by Elyce back in October of 2017. What hasn’t this village done for me?! This village has honestly been one of the biggest blessings since becoming a mom. Even Kevin has told me he is so glad that I have found this group of moms! I have met AMAZING moms who I can trust for advice when I feel completely lost at motherhood. I was the only person out of my group of friends to have a baby and now I can say I have friends with kids. I feel like it’s helped me find my footing as a mom and I have never left a class in a bad mood.
4. What is something that has surprised you about motherhood?
The ability to function on minimal sleep! But also that I am able to love another human being so much.
5. Favorite app(s) or website(s)?
Pinterest, Words with Friends, Etsy, Amazon, Instagram.
6. List three current obsessions.
Dark chocolate with toffee nut, Grey's Anatomy and, can I say my son?
7. What is your child's/children's favorite thing about you or favorite thing that you do?
Rocky loves being tickled or when I chase him around the house. He also thinks it’s hilarious when I do a face mask
8. Any tips for other moms out there?
Find your support system and lean on them hard! And don’t forget to take care of yourself. Leave the dirty dishes in the sink and sleep if you need to. Do some me time whether that’s a walk by yourself or a nice pampering pedicure!
