Cordelia Gaffar

Cordelia Gaffar is an author, speaker and founder of Workout Around My Day. She created this seven step process over the past fifteen years to help her raise her six children. With this program moms can nourish themselves with wholesome food, energize themselves with movement and encourage themselves with sweet talk.

As a corporate accountant and commuting mom 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. The mission on her blog site was “unite humanity one blog at a time”.

She started livestreaming last year with to communities: World Black History on Periscope and Peri10k. Having the opportunity to speak on a global platform about sisterhood, the history of humanity and overall unity via livestream has been a dream come true. “I feel that moms are the pillars of society and that is why I want them to create a total system of self-nurturing”. www.workoutaroundmyday.com/.
