ME: Last night, I was going to go run, but after a long day at work, picking up around the house and putting my son to bed, it just didn’t happen. What’s your advice for busy moms – and busy people in general – to stay motivated? How do you stay discIplined?

CARRIE: It’s all about just doing what you can, when you can, and cutting yourself a little slack. I used to workout six or seven days a week, and now it just doesn’t happen. If I’m not going to be able to do anything because my day is packed, I try to get in a small, thirty-minute workout earlier. And just doing that, I feel good for the rest of my day. Don’t wait ‘til the end.
