It gets 5 stars for getting me off the couch and training for my first 5 k! Anyone who knows me can tell you what an incredible feat that is. It's perfect for those of us who, in our minivans or mom-mobiles, drive by those joggers in their matching outfits and spandex and feel intimidated.
This is an incredible book; inspiring and entertaining without being pushy and judgmental.
As a (previously) non exercising mother I liked how it read. At some points it almost felt like they were in my living room talking about my piles of laundry stacking up and my kids running around. At one point they compared squeezing exercise into your day to squeezing that last box of waffles into the freezer after doing groceries. Who can't relate to that?
It encourages you to " treat your body as well as you treat your kids" .
It's a good, easy read and has some great advice.
The mom to mom quotes also gives you a sense of camaraderie. Ladies, we are not in this alone!!!!

I got this from Amazon. I wish this was written about 10 years ago or even 6 years ago. It would have been an inspiration to me, for the most part. It still was, somewhat, but my kids are older, I AM older and so it's not as much of a help. This is true especially when I read statements in the book like: "throw your "To Do List" away. It's time to give up on the idea that you can have this list hanging over your head and still devote your time to family and fitness" (I'm paraphrasing).

There is no way in the world I could do that, and I want to know who does all the "stuff" that is routinely on a "to do list", if these women who wrote this book are not doing them. Does the husband schedule the dentist apt., pick up the dry cleaning, get the wall painted on the garage, buy the new school clothes, take the cupcakes to open house, find out about better insurance, meet with the teachers, plan the meals, buy the food, get the refrigerator fixed, buy the birthday presents - well, all moms reading this know the list never ends. I think these author-moms are the ones with house cleaners, lots of babysitters to choose from and they say things like "I have a great husband, he lets me do anything I want". Actually, my husband would leave first, before he was the servant. So this is TOTALLY unrealistic for me. As to the issue of getting fit after 50, THAT's the book that needs to be written: "get your yourself fit NOW, over 50 it's a bitch; but here's how to do it, if you must". (I exercised some in my adult years, but eating only when I was hungry (most of the time) was enough to be in a small clothing size, so I've been an exercise snob).

If you're the type to make excuses about not something because you have the kids to take care of then read this. I'm not a runner but I like to keep healthy and this book helped not only to get out there and make myself feel good but helped me STOP FEELING GUILTY for taking the time to do it. I'd recommend this to any woman even if they don't have kids. You don't need to have kids to feel guilty about taking time to yourself. I'm now reading Run like a Mother that I purchased used from Amazon and it definitely puts a fire under your butt to run.

I like the authors' practical approach to being a Fit Mom. The book includes suggestions for fitting workouts into family life as well as tips for handling spouses who may or may not support your athletic endeavors. I like the Mom2Mom sections where real moms 'fess up to some of the crazy things they've done in the name of post-natal exercise. (anyone else used your baby as a dumbell?)

The authors acknowledge the fact that some advice is just tired. "Work out while the baby sleeps" assumes that your baby will always sleep! Instead, the book offers suggestions for exercising with the baby and guilt-free motivation for leaving baby at home while you run, bike, swim etc.

Great values, good storyline. We like the whole series, particularly soccer girl, runner girl, and swimmer girl. The author teaches hard work, discipline, good sportsmanship.

LOVE, love this book. I'm returning to fitness after using parenthood as an excuse for 7 years now. This book? Did it for me. And I read anything and everything I can get my hands on. Most books about being a mom and juggling things don't delve deep enough to address fitness; and most books on fitness don't address the unique needs of a mom. This book is a practical approach that is helpful for ANY mom at ANY fitness level to figure out how to fit (haha - pun intended) fitness in her life. What really resonated with me was the section on finding the time - the authors label it as, "take it, make it, share it, or snare it." It's an awesome way to think about how to organize your time and fit it in. I used this logic just a few days ago and actually completed a run when my day was really challenging and normally I would have given up.

Highly recommend this book, no matter where you are on your fitness journey.

My daughter loved this story. She finished it in one night. It is nice to have a series of books about girls staying active and doing sports. It helps my daughter relate to the characters.
Bought these along with several other soccer books as stocking stuffers. I am sure the kids who get these "from Santa" will enjoy them.
