The Back Story:
Kacey is a busy mom who tries to be the example for her kids. I ran into her at Trader Joe’s as she was between activities for herself and her kids. We so often walk next to strangers who we’re afraid to talk to, but we’re all so much alike and trying our best to do and be good. I feel privileged to have a platform that gives me an excuse to meet new people and listen to their stories. Your story doesn’t have to be fancy or frilly, it just has to be yours.
Kacey is joining the team of Dynamos. You are Dynamo because you’re a power-house, you’re a force for good, and you are working hard with what you have. You are an example and a leader, even if it’s for a small group. I believe that when we share our stories, we are empowered to be better people. Your story is exactly what will affect someone else in their healthy lifestyle. When we share, we learn to accept, forgive, celebrate, and give love to those around us. Pretty awesome. Thank you Kacey for agreeing to this pop-up interview! You rock and are doing an awesome job as a mom!
What does healthy living mean to you?
Trying to feed my kids whole foods. Pretty much clean eating. We try to eat organic when we can. Just living a healthy lifestyle…being active outdoors.
How has your example motivated or inspired others?
I hope I’m setting a good example to my kids. That’s the most important thing for me. I think it has. We live a healthy life and I know they love fitness.
What type of fitness do you like doing?
I love doing yoga, I like hiking, and I love doing weight training too.
What piece of advice do you like to share?
I think it’s all about balance. Just try to do the best you can when you can. And also allow yourself to have fun a little too and cheat! (laughs)
How has living this way helped make you who you are?
I was raised this way because my mom was super healthy, so it’s been instilled in me. It’s made me just want to instill that in my children.
What do you want to be remembered for?
For having a big heart.
