LISA LESLIE: MOTHERHOOD IS A BALANCING ACT

lisalesliedaughter

-Lauren Lockwood turns two next month-

WNBA star Lisa Leslie is set to retire from the league after her 12th season with the Los Angeles Sparks as it has become increasingly difficult for her to balance family life with her career.

“It’s a balancing act – to get my workouts in, to put meals on the table, to get Lauren to her doctor’s appointments,” she said.

“Before, I gave basketball 100 percent,” Lisa adds. “I would go run on the track, go lift weights with the trainer, and around 4:30-5 p.m. I’d go play pick-up with the fellas.”

Though she is no longer able to give “100 percent” to basketball because of her daughter Lauren, Lisa admits that her daughter is worth the sacrifice.

“In the morning when I wake up, or when she wakes me up, she’s so happy,” Leslie said. “She has to tell me everything that’s in the room – ‘Hi, Mommy! That’s a pillow, that’s a doorknob’ – I love that.”

Since this is her last year before she retires, Lisa will make another sacrifice, this time she will sacrifice bringing her daughter on team-road trips with her.

“I played last season, but I wasn’t all there,” Leslie said. “I’m going to try and see if it balances out where I can leave [Lauren]. It’s my last season, and I may want to make that sacrifice.”

The Sparks first home game is June 6, against the defending WNBA champion Detroit Shock.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one today.
