 BTB: Tell us a little about you.. kids, married years? Where are you from?

KG:I’m from here!   went to O’Hara and Villanova, where I met my husband, Jon. We were married there almost 14 years ago! I worked there in the Athletics Department then at the Atlantic 10 Conference before we moved to Rhode Island for a few years when my husband took a job at the Big East Conference. Our first daughter, Finley (8), was born there then we moved back in 2007 for Jon to work at Villanova. Since then we’ve had Brendan (5) and Delaney (2).

BTB: What’s your favorite part of about being a mom?
KG: The laughter. Seriously, when the kids get the giggles and are just purely happy is amazing. And the things they say – hilarious!
BTB: What is your least favorite part of being a mom?
KG: When I hear myself yelling.I know it’s all part of the package but sometimes definitely yell too much.
BTB: How do you keep yourself organized?
KG: More often than not I don’t! I’ve been making more of an effort to
BTB: Favorite splurge food to make for your family?
KG: Homemade chocolate cake from scratch, my Nana’s recipe. It’s delish!
BTB: Why do you exercise?
KG: After being so active in sports in high school and college then kind of falling out of that cycle when I had kids, I realized that I needed to get back in shape not just for me (and my sanity!) but for my family and to set a good example for them.
BTB: When did you start doing BTB? Favorite part?
KG: The burpees, of course!  Ha ha…. I started BTB in January 2014, just over a year after Delaney was born.  It was time to get back into working out for me and I kept seeing posts about it on Facebook so I figured I’d give it a shot and I’m so happy I did! My favorite part is the friends I’ve made and the comfort in seeing those friendly faces when I come to work out:) All thanks to, Abbie!!!
