As a wife and mother, Haley Browning knows all too well the weight of responsibility that comes with those titles. But rather than letting the demands of motherhood weigh her down, Haley has found motivation to be fit and focus on her health for the sake of her family.
It all comes down to the simple phrase, “mama tried.” Haley wants her daughter to always know that she tried to be the healthiest version of herself that she could be, so that she can be around for as long as possible for her family.
This motivation is what brought her into the gym two years ago, and what has kept her going ever since. It’s not about lifting the heaviest weights or running the fastest mile, but rather about taking care of herself so that she can take care of her family.
From making healthy food choices at home to building muscle through strength training, Haley is always trying to do what’s right for her family by taking care of herself. And it’s a continuous journey of learning more about metabolic health, fitness, and nutrition so that she can keep trying and keep improving.
As Merle Haggard once sang, “Mama tried to raise me better, but her pleading, I denied.” But for Haley, it’s about embodying the spirit of that song in a positive way – trying her best to be the healthiest version of herself for her family.
For other busy mothers with young children, Haley’s story serves as a reminder that taking care of yourself is not selfish, but rather an act of love for your family. It’s about finding your own “why” and using that as motivation to make positive changes in your life.
So whether it’s hitting the gym a few times a week or making small changes to your diet, remember that “mama tried” and keep striving towards your own health and wellness goals. Your family will thank you for it.
