Testimonial - Lani Neumann, Member of NY Chapter

A quick reflection on my childhood and one can see no obvious signs to suggest my path to motherhood would be anything but typical. My favorite childhood photos are of me walking in our driveway, on my tippy toes, pushing a baby stroller like a natural. I couldn't have imagined that I'd be 43 the first time I pushed a stroller ...

What was your road to parenthood like?  I was unsure of whether or not I wanted to take on the responsibility of being a mother.  I’m kind of an all or nothing person, so whatever I choose to do, I get a little obsessed with doing it the best I possibly can. Of course, once I became pregnant, there was no turning back.  I quickly had to learn everything I could about being a mindful parent in every way possible.  The day my daughter came into my life, I had no doubts in myself.  She’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me, and now I love the things she teaches me.

tinadaughter2 tinadaughter3What fitness tips can you offer a busy 40 or 50 something mom?  You have to schedule it into your life the same way you schedule yourself an appointment to get your hair done, go to the doctor, or get a bikini wax.  It must be part of your routine.  The truth is, if you can maintain a healthy diet, your exercise bouts can be incredibly effective in a short period of time if programmed correctly. 

What’s the best one piece of advice you might offer a later mom to balance practicing self care with parenting? I teach my daughter what I’m doing when I’m doing it.  For example, blow drying my hair, putting on make-up or filing my nails.  She wants to be involved in everything I’m doing so I try to include her in the process as much as possible.  It does require more time, but it’s worth it!  For appointments outside of the hous,e this is where your friends and family become essential.  All of my appointments outside of the house such as pedicures or haircuts are scheduled with a friend so we can take turns hanging out with the munchkin.  It’s great time for my daughter to bond with the people close to me, and it gives me a scheduled time to spend with friends that I may not end up seeing since life gets busy with a little one.  Everyone wins in this situation.
