About Me


“I help women to thrive and prioritize themselves by nourishing with wholesome food, energizing with movement and sweet talk themselves to reverse negative inner chatter.”

Her mission is to prevent moms from neglecting themselves to the point of adrenal issues, thyroid issues, diabetes, heart disease and even cancer. These all result from lasting stress, being overweight and not exercising.

She started live streaming in 2016 to spread her message globally. “I feel that moms are the pillars of society and that is why I want them to create a total system of self-nurturing”.

Cordelia Gaffar is an author, speaker and founder of Workout Around My Day and the Stress Less Mom(TM). She created this three step process over the past fifteen years to help her raise her six children. With this program moms can thrive and prioritize themselves by nourishing with wholesome food, energizing with movement and encouraging themselves with sweet talk.

As a corporate accountant and commuting mom in 2002, she found self-care overwhelming and needed to easily provide a peaceful environment and wholesome food for her family. Beginning with a stressful second pregnancy resulting in postpartum depression and excessive weight gain, she started researching and implementing foods and exercises to be centered, peaceful, and whole. Fast forward to 2010, she started blogging during her fifth pregnancy which were the humble beginnings of her book, Workout Around My Day: the Only Health Guide Moms Need.

She has spent the last 15 years researching various nutrition and exercise techniques to maintain fitness.   Applying the lessons learned into a personal life, Cordelia used her personal journey as a test case. “Part of my experiment was to see if I could get back into my size 4 custom fit dress after having two kids over the age of forty. I purchased it when I was 24.”  She did it!

She works individually with women or in workshops, offers online courses and supports them in her Facebook groups and has several ebooks available on Amazon and her web site.

Cordelia is also a contributor of parenting, fitness, and nutrition articles to Aaila Family Magazine, Peri10k.com, thiswomanknows.com and other publications such as Mumsbusiness club.
