Genevieve, or Jenny or Gen to her friends and family is 43 years old and resides in Lloydminster. She has five children, age’s 20, 19, 16 and 11 year old twins, and three grandchildren, 2-year-old twin boys, and 11 months. She is a proud grandma and would do anything for her grandkids. She works full-time as optometric staff/receptionist.
I joined Women Warriors to become more active and make healthier choices for my family, and myself, and to keep up with my grandbabies. Activities that I enjoy are anything that keeps me outside including walking, sliding with my family, quadding, hunting, and swimming. I try to exercise at least 15-20 minutes per day, even if its just walking around the office or going up and down the stairs – just keeping mobile. I schedule fitness when I can between a full-time and casual job, housekeeping and spending time with family – mostly on my days off and weekends. I am not a member of a gym or fitness club, but I am a proud member of Women Warriors.
My self-love practice is smudging/praying first thing in the morning and thanking the Creator for giving me another day. I also smudge and pray just before I go to bed to thank the Creator for all that was blessed to me.
My favourite meal and treat is an Indian taco (mmm just thinking about a taco makes me want some) and my weakness is chocolate.
My daily struggle is after a long day of work trying to find the energy and motivation to make a healthy meal for my family.
My advise to my younger self would be to keep fit, stay active, and don’t eat much junk food.
My inspiring words to encourage others are the Creator chose us women to give life because we are mentally and physically strong. We can carry a child, give birth to a child, and raise that child – give it a home, and future. We are strong women and can overcome any obstacle, and continue to become stronger within!
Thanks for sharing your message Jenny!
