Tell us a little bit about yourself.

My name is Amy Jay. I'am a social media specialist. IG @GoFastMommy.
My baby's name Taylor. She was born on 10/6/16, so she is 13 months now. We live in sunny Phoenix Arizona.

How did you come up with her name?

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]I was watching an episode of Flip or Flop and heard the name Taylor and really liked it. We got pregnant with her very shortly (like days) after saying goodbye to our beloved yellow lab Tate, so thats where her middle name came from. Taylor Tate.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

When did you start to exercise?

I was never too athletic growing up but played soccer and swam in high school.

What exercise did you start with? What exercise(s) do you do now?

I love running now, especially stroller running.

How many times do you work out per week, and how long per day?

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Run and/or cross train 5-6 days a week.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

What is the most effective workout you recommend?

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Most effective workout? One you enjoy - because then you'll stick with it. But running has changed my mind and body for the good![/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

How do you find time to exercise as a new mom?

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]I get up early before everyone else and finish my workout while everyone else is usually sleep. If I want to get in another workout tat day, I'll either take the baby with on a stroller run or do a quick little at home circuit while she naps.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Breastfeeding Diet


Are you breastfeeding/Did you breastfeed, if yes, for how long?

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Breastfed exclusively for first 12 months and am not starting to wean.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Do you feel like you are hungry all of time?

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Was hungry all the time and eating and drinking a ton of water really helped keep my energy and supply up.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Could you please share with us your favorite quick and easy snack/recipe?

Fav snack that I still eat before every workout (and my baby loves them too!) are banana pumpkin oatmeal "cookies".
I make a large double batch and freeze half - combine blended oats (2 cups), pureed ripe bananas (6-7), one can pumpkin and a hefty dose of cinnamon. Scoop into mounds onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees. So good!
