Our February Mom of the Month

Our Mom of the Month program honors one of our Stroller Strides moms for her efforts to live a healthy lifestyle while giving us the chance to get to know her better at the same time. This month we honor Brooke Acas, aka Roman's mom!

Acas Family
Brooke joined our program early in the summer with her son, Roman, and the little boy she nannies for, Warren. She and the boys have faithfully attended classes 3-5 times per week ever since and Brooke can attest to the results of her efforts (see below)! Now expecting a little girl, Brooke is working towards a new goal- a healthy pregnancy! We're so proud of you, Brooke, and delighted to have you and the boys in our classes. Keep up the good work!

We asked Brooke a few questions to get to know her better and this is what she told us...
Hometown - Wilson, NC
Education- Where didn't I go to college? ...a total of 3, I finally graduated from Coastal Carolina University
Stroller Strides Member since - June 2012
Members of your Family - Roland, Roman, Olive (baby girl on the way) and Tiki, our dog!
Current/previous Career - I was the regional marketing director for 3 chiropractic offices.
What was your childhood ambition? I wanted to be a ballet instructor and own my own studio.
What does motherhood mean to you? I knew for as long as I can remember that I wanted to be a Mom.  The day I had Roman, I felt like I had accomplished everything I had ever wanted, that my life was complete!  I am so thankful everyday for my sweet little boy and for our new one on the way.  Motherhood to me, is the most wonderful blessing in the world!
What is the furthest you have been from home? Lithuania, my husbands homeland.
What has Stroller Strides done for you? During my pregnancy with Roman, I gained 61 pounds.  I was out of shape and looking for something to do... that I could stick with and that was fun!  I saw you ladies one day at North Hills, decided that's it!  I joined and from June to October I lost 22 lbs!  I love going everyday not only for my fitness but also for my sanity :)  I am hoping to gain a lot less this go around!
What is your favorite exercise? I like doing arms, Stroller Barre and the wall.
What is your proudest moment? Becoming a Mommy!
What are three of your favorite things (besides your family!)? Music: I love researching new music from around the world, mostly heavy metal.  The Ballet and traveling!
Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us or makes you unique. I was awarded a scholarship to the NC School of the Arts when I was 13.
If we asked your spouse what they think your best qualities are, what would they say? "You are a great Mother, the best wife ever, you have a big heart and you make great dinners!"
Special thanks to our friends at Omega Sports at North Hills for further honoring our Moms of the Month with store gift certificates!
