Fit Family Feature #61 (Julia)

Fit Family Feature

This weekly post series for Country Fit Family is called Fit Family Feature. In this series I will be interviewing fellow fit parents about what they do for exercise and how they make time for fitness in their busy lives.  I know as parents we are always pressed for time and are often exhausted at the end of the day.

I am hoping the Fit Family Features will showcase how other parents are managing and perhaps inspire others to get active.     In this week’s Fit Family Feature, I am interviewing… » Continue Reading

If you are ever stressed or overwhelmed, make time for the quiet and solitude of the forest. I live in Quebec, Canada and usually we have an awesome winter with tons of snow making it… » Continue Reading
