In This Episode

Making time for your health can be a challenge…especially as a single mom.

It can feel like the demands on your time and the responsibilities on your plate are so great that your own needs end up on the backburner. 

In this special Mother’s Day episode I’m joined by coaches Emilia and Lauren – both of whom are incredible single moms to young kids. 

These women both do such a great job of prioritizing their kids AND remembering that they also deserve (and need) to be healthy and happy, regardless of their parenting situation.

Emilia and Lauren tell us a little bit about the transitions into being single moms and the biggest challenges they’ve faced, especially when it comes to prioritizing themselves and their health goals.

Emilia became a single mom pretty suddenly, and she says there were so many emotions – it felt like her world had been turned upside down.  Emotional eating came into play, and she began to obsess about diet and exercise (some of the few things she felt she could control).   

Now, she shares how she has learned to manage her time and priorities and take things one day at a time.

Lauren, on the other hand, has been a single mom since the beginning.  She’s struggled with finances, and now tells us about how she adapts her workouts, cooks in bulk and lives a healthy lifestyle on a budget.  

One of the huge takeaways of this episode is that not only do you deserve to take time and care for your health simply because you’re a worthy human being. But you being happy and healthy sets a good example and makes your kids’ childhoods healthier and happier, too. 


You’ll Learn:

  • How Emilia and Lauren think differently now about their health and the way they respond to stressful situations
  • How to give yourself grace and work with what you have – while still making your health a priority
  • How they handle mealtimes with young kids
  • What they want their kids to remember about them and how they handled being a single mom
  • Their advice for other single moms out there who are struggling to make themselves and their health a priority
