Hi there, I’m Martina!
I’m a wife and mom to 4 amazing kiddos, ages 5, 4, 2 and 10 months. To say life is busy is an understatement! I am home with my little ones during the day, and
some most days, it feels like my life is overwhelmingly full of poopy diapers, potty training, and epic meltdowns.
To add to the madness, a few nights a week, I’m running out the door to teach my passion: Pilates! In addition to being a full-time wife and mom, I’m also a Pilates teacher (PMA®-CPT) and Personal Trainer (ACE-PT), and get to share my passion of health and fitness with others, both in live studio classes, as well as online.
A big goal of mine, both through my classes and here at About That Mommy Life is to help more moms administer some much needed self-care by first realizing that it is more than okay to take some time each day for yourself. Whether through meditation, exercise, or simply locking the bathroom door to get 3 minutes of solitude before starting the day.
My vision is for About That Mommy Life to bring some refuge from those days that feel like sheer madness. I share some of my ‘Mom Hacks’ that I’ve learned along the way of raising 4 little ones so close in age, along with lots lots of fun, simple workouts (both prenatal and postpartum) that can be done at home with no or minimal equipment, served with a dose of humor (because kids can be hilarious in the midst of it all!) All of this is sprinkled with mindfulness/wellness tips and inspiration for those times when it seems like there is no end to the constant demand of being Mommy (and you simply need to catch your breath!)
So, think of this as your Mommy Sanctuary. This space is for the busy, tired mama. The slightly overwhelmed mama fighting to keep it all together. The mama who loves her kids to the depths of her soul, but also desperately wants to reclaim a teeny, tiny bit of herself (and not feel regret while doing so!)
So grab a cup of coffee, (and your sneakers! and perhaps some lavender oil) and let’s enjoy the ride of Mommy Life, together. Also, I would love to hear from you! Feel free to drop me a note at Martina@aboutthatmommylife.com.
