Meet a new face to our FIT4MOM West Seattle Team and the creativity behind our witty, heartfelt and engaging Facebook posts, Josalyne de Asis.
Tell us about yourself and your family.
I have a 16 month old son named Isaiah, a husband Vince, and two dogs (I'd have more if I could but Vince would kill me). We love traveling, camping, hiking, trying new things. A fun fact about us; in the past 5 years we have lived in 8 different places, that's 8 moves, 8 address changes in FIVE YEARS!We're happy to have settled with a house in West Seattle that we love!
What surprised you the most once you became a mom?
How fast I could eat.I learned pretty quickly from the get go that meals had to be eaten fast & furious, and forget about eating at the same time as my husband!
Why did you join FIT4MOM? Why do you love it? and what you do for our team!
I joined FIT4MOM to get me and the kiddo out of the house. I'd been cooped up for so long I'd forgotten how to speak to an actual adult. I needed friends that were interested in fitness, friendship and motherhood and thats why I love it!I now manage the Facebook Social Media for FIT4MOM and it's been awesome!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? If you didn't have any obstacles, what dream would you pursue?
If I had no obstacles I would want to have a veterinarian degree and would pursue work for an animal conservation somewhere in the world.
What is your favorite go to piece of baby gear?
Right now it's my iPad! I know it sounds so bad, and I swear I limit my son's usage. But when he does use it, he doesn't even know I exist! I can finally do something productive or just think without interruption! Bliss...
Any advice for new moms?
Don't be too hard on yourself if things don't go as you had planned. Focus on small victories throughout your day and not any shortcomings.
