  • how get kids moving and active and away from those screens,
  • tips for women who juggle life with families or are just trying to be real in this virtual world.

All of this starts with one change at a time.

Jessica Williams

Jessica Williams aka mom, wife, fitness instructor, very amateur boxer and radio host at Y105FM.  I was a beginner … in everything! Today … I want pull people off the treadmills that I have seen them walking on and show them how to lift some weights. I lift heavy stuff … and I put it down … and, seriously, every woman should be able to lift their own bags of salt at Home Depot.

Cori Drost is a wife, mom of three, part-time secretary and random writer who is learning how to take small steps towards big goals. She tends to be an all-or-nothing kind of person, but a journey to learn how to run — something she always hated — has taught her a lot about slow, gradual change.

Jenny Chapman

Jenny Chapman is a wife, mother of two young girls and works part-time as a fundraising coach.  As a busy working mom, I am making small changes in the way we eat to be healthy and eat more veggies!  I love to cook and look forward to sharing my favs with you. I love to experiment with recipes and view them as outlines–I have fun making healthy yummy food and enjoy the process.  (As I write this bio, I just realized my veggies and fruits I am steaming for my superfood blend have been going way too long.) 🙂
