According to Romana, "getting over day 1" is the hardest part so far in her fitness journey, which she described as "realistic."

She went on inspire her fellow moms, saying nothing should stop them from wanting to live a healthy lifestyle.

"Kapag lagi kayong nasasabihan or naja-judge na, 'Mommy ka na, okay lang 'yan, mommy ka naman na.' Ha? Hindi ko naiintindihan 'yon, actually... Para kasing nakakainsulto kapag narinig ko 'yon, na parang, 'Ah 'so feeling mo kapag mommy na ako, I don't have to look good, like I can't do it?' Hello, nanay ako kaya kong gawin lahat 'yan," Romana said. 

"Ako kasi lagi kong sinasabi dati na parang wala akong oras. Na mommy ako, wala akong oras. Excuse ko na lang 'yon, ako mismo... Pero nagawa ko. So ibig sabihin kung kaya ko, mas kaya nila," she stressed. 

Romana, who appeared in "Huwag Kang Mangamba," is set to star in the upcoming series "Viral Scandal."

“Viral Scandal” will start airing on November 15 on Kapamilya Channel (cable), Kapamilya Online Live (free live-streaming), iWant TFC (on-demand streaming), and A2Z Channel 11 (free and digital TV in Mega Manila).
