“Life, easier. You, happier.”
Those are the ultimate goals we are all shooting for, am I right? Hi, I’m Megan, and I’m the MOM behind Shaping Up To Be A Mom! Here on my site I do my best to give you the tips and tools to make your life a little easier and yourself a little happier. Get through the day and go to bed a little better than you were when you woke up. Let’s “shape up” together!
This blog was born in 2008, right before my first baby was born, and I started it as a way to stay accountable for losing the baby weight. Now I focus on helping busy moms achieve all of their goals, while sharing my own adventures in parenting, fitness, travel, and checking off my bucket list.
My family and I live in the Valley of the Sun, otherwise known as Phoenix! My husband Daniel and I have three little ones, Carter, Vanessa, and Harrison. Carter is learning Taekwondo and is currently a green belt, Vanessa is a little ballerina, and Harry loves playing with cars!
Originally from Maine, I moved to my husband’s home state of Arizona in 2005, when we were married.
I miss the beach but love the sun!
Daniel is a choir teacher and composer. He enjoys writing original musicals, and can occasionally be seen onstage as well! He’s a great Dad to our kids, and when I’m feeling down he has been known to bring me cheeseburgers. I guess I’ll keep him!
We met as theme park entertainers (yes, really- we are the two on the right).
I have a degree in musical theatre and theatre education, and I can often be found choreographing and directing for local theatres and schools. I’m currently on the Board of Directors and Financial Manager of Ghostlight Theatre in Sun City West. I also work part-time as a business manager and, most importantly, I run this blog!
It’s a busy life, and we are doing our best to live it to the fullest! Hopefully I can help you do the same with some of my easy recipes, workouts you can do at home, and other “mom hacks.” If you’re ready, head on back to my homepage to read my latest posts, and get ready to “shape up!”
