Motivational Mom of the Month - Lindsay Sproat

How is this month March when last month was also March!? Anyone else feel that way?? Where has the time gone? So much has changed and yet, some things remain the same. Like, our awesome Mamas! Join me in getting to know Lindsay Sproat, our March Motivational Mom of the Month!

How did you find FIT4MOM Richmond and how long have you been a part of our village?

I am new to Richmond and was looking for mommy and me groups in the area. I joined in January of this year.

What do you love most about being part of this community?

I have loved meeting other moms in the area. Not to mention the workouts have been great!

Who are you a mom to?

I am mom to Leo who is 11 months old

What is your favorite thing about being a mom?

Since having Leo he just continues to amaze me and teach me things. He has taught me to be more patient.

Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck or one hundred duck-sized horses?

One horse-sized duck sounds easier to me!

How do you stay fit when you're not working out with FIT4MOM?

I’ve been working with my physical therapist to help me get back in shape

How do you practice self-care?

I love having my nails done. Its one thing when I have done that makes me feel put together

Where did you grow up and how did you end up in Richmond?

I grew up an hour outside of Toronto, Canada. My husband lived in Richmond and I came to try it out two summers ago and fell in love with the city, so deciding where we would live as a couple was easy! Not to mention the weather is much warmer than in Canada.

How did becoming a mother change you?

Well one thing is for sure I am definitely all of a sudden more of a morning person. He is also my motivation to be the best person I can be for him, which means taking better care of my self, exercising and taking care of my injuried leg and hip.

What is the last great book or television series you've read/watched?

Bridgerton

How did you meet your husband?

My husband was visiting family who happened to live close to me and we met on a dating app. We didn’t meet right away and he led me to believe he was from my hometown.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

An optometrist

If your five-year-old self suddenly found themselves inhabiting your current body, what would she do first?

First off wonder what I did to myself and why I have so many more aches and pains and secondly probably go for a long bike ride!!!

Canada, eh? We're glad you found your way down South, Lindsay! Leo is such a cutey! And you are like the 1 billionth person to recommend Bridgerton so maybe I should check it out! Thanks for sharing a little bit about yourself with all of us!
