Meet Patty M., our November Mom of the Month!

First of all thank you so much for selecting me as this months Fit4Mom Mom of the month!!! I’m so honored!

Oh goodness where to begin...My husband Ray and I met in college at Schreiner University in Kerrville Texas. He was on the baseball team and I was on the tennis team. He was majoring in biochemistry and I was majoring in mathematics. And we were in total opposite social groups! But what can I say, opposites attract. We didn’t actually start dating until a few years after we both graduated college. We were married here in San Antonio on 12/13/14. (Nerd alert) I teach high school math and he teaches high school science. Our daughter, Aubree, was born on 8/4/16 6 weeks early and we spent 2 of the longest weeks of my life in the NICU. I’ve been an athlete my entire life, but while pregnant I gained about 60lbs!!!! Crazy! I knew I had to get my weight back under control. Breast feeding helped me to loose quite a bit of weight but I was really missing my gym days. As a new Mom I didn’t want to leave Aubree in the gym daycare. A mama in my Facebook mama group had posted about her weight loss success with her local fit4mom group and I had to try! This summer I finally took my first class with Ashley H and I was hooked!!!!! I tell everyone about Fit4Mom. This group has been an absolute blessing for me. My Wednesday nights and Saturday mornings are my favorites. The best part is watching Aubree mimic the moves from class! She loves to do high knees, jump squats, and burpees. This year for Halloween Aubree was an 80s workout girl! Totally fitting!
