6:23 PM

This is the fifth installment of my MommyTasker Interview Series (see MommyTasker Interviews) wherein I ambush my friends, colleagues, and random strangers, hold them hostage for roughly three minutes, and ask them to share with us, off the cuff, what they do to "MommyTask" their way through work, life and parenting.

This point of these "interviews" is to broaden the perspective on the issues I am discussing here at MommyTasker. I love hearing how others are fitting it all in, and especially how they are engaging their kids in living active and healthy lifestyles. With each of these interviews I am learning things that I am applying in my own life, and hope they become a source of inspiration for you too.

In order of appearance, and in their own words:

The Pediatrician

Basic stats: Pediatrician, mother of three, a childhood friend who I reconnected with after not seeing for over 20 years.
What I learned from her: Scheduling time to fit in your workout is key to making it happen.

The Attorney
Basic stats: Symantec attorney, mother of two, still a triathlete in spirit.
What I learned from her: A job doesn't necessarily have to be perfect if it facilitates the other parts of your life that you value.

The Conservationist

Basic stats: .Land conservationist, mother of two, she actually enjoys camping
What I learned from her: A "date night" can be many things, including an elliptical workout in tandem.

Please let me know if there are questions you wish I was asking, or if you have a perspective that you would be willing to share. If any of these interviews inspired you to do something new and different, I (and I am sure the interviewee) would love that feedback too.
