Mom of the Month - October 2017

October 23, 2017

Meet Lisa, our October mom of the Month!

Lisa is mom to three boys, Wesley (6), Harrison (3) and Simon (1). Lisa was originally part of Our Village up in the Twin Cities and quickly become a part of Our Village here in Brookfield when she moved a year ago. She jumped right in when her third was six week old with Strides. Then continued by joining Run Club and trained for the Al's run. She killed this run and got a PR regardless of the heat that knocked so many down. And now she is the middle of Body Back and killing these workouts every week. She is a powerhouse and when she is not working out she a busy registered nurse. We love this mom and are so happy she joined Our Village. Keep up the good work, mama!

What is your fave thing about Stroller Strides? My favorite thing is the socialization for both me and my kids. When I first started, I lived in a city where I didn’t know anyone and I had a very restless baby. Those classes were my lifeline to getting out of the house and talking to adults. I was also one of the first of my friends to have babies, and I loved getting honest advice from other moms that was nothing like what the books said.

What is your favorite exercise at Stroller Strides? I honestly love burpees, I have no idea why.

What is your favorite part about being a mom? My favorite part about being a mom is watching my kids develop into their own little people with their own personalities.

Favorite thing to do when Simon is napping?Cuddle with Harrison and take a rest myself. Harrison is a middle child, so I try to take advantage of nap time while Wesley is at school to give him some undivided attention.

What is your favorite thing to do as a family? We like doing seasonal activities, like going to the pumpkin patch in fall or looking at Christmas lights in December, but most of our favorite activities are outside.

What is something about you that someone may not know?I love scary movies and books, but I cannot handle haunted houses. Oddly enough, I worked in a haunted house as a ghost at a campground one summer. Walking through it to get out at the end of the night was terrifying.

What is your favorite healthy and unhealthy food? My favorite healthy food is eggs. My favorite unhealthy food is candy. I’m doing Body Back, and cutting out candy has been the hardest thing.

What is your favorite color? Green

What is your favorite song or artist? Too many to mention. I was raised on all kinds of music, but lately I’ve been into Fleetwood Mac. The Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtracks are a big hit with me and my kids.

What TV shows are you currently watching? This is Us and The Walking Dead. I’m really excited about the 2nd season of Stranger Things starting this weekend!
