Focused on Lifelong Health and Fitness: Motivating Mom Tiffany

Knowing myself, my limits, and staying true to my family…

I love hearing stories from other moms, especially those who are committed to living a healthy lifestyle and raising a healthy family. I’m very inspired by other moms and I love to hear how they stay committed to setting a healthy example for their little ones and raising a healthy family.

Today we’re hearing from Motivating Mom Tiffany.

I remember meeting Tiffany at the first Sweat Pink BlogFest at IDEA World. I had already followed her blog and social media and I found her so inspiring! In the years since, Tiffany has become a mom to an adorable little guy and she still manages to make health and fitness a priority.

Why It’s Good to Let Children Play #PlayMoreMN

It’s so important to let children play. However, so many parents today feel the pressure to direct their child’s every move and to provide structured opportunities for learning. Child-directed play is essential to learning, and we need to provide more opportunities and let children play.

We also need to give ourselves the freedom to relax and let the kids play and work through things on their own.

Who is with me!?

Why I finally joined Beachbody… after being undecided for over three years

As a stay-at-home-mom, Beachbody is a great way to find  support, socialization, and even some extra money for your family. Finding your tribe and getting excited about weight loss or fitness in general is such an amazing catalyst for a healthy lifestyle!

If you’re like me and resistant to feeling like you’re being pitched for a sale, you may have the same reservations about Beachbody that I had. I finally realized the benefits greatly outweighed that hang-up and joined Beachbody.

This is why it took me so long to make the decision and why I finally joined Beachbody.

Weight Loss for Moms: It’s Hard… and what I’m doing about it

Weight loss is hard. Throw in being a stay-at-home-mom without the benefit of having time go to the gym whenever you want, the income to afford the membership, or the ability to meet up with girlfriends and having a fun time at a class, and it can be a very hard and lonely battle. Weight loss for moms can be very hard.

I’ve lost a significant amount of weight before and the common denominator was always comunity support which helped make it fun. I talked about support for weight loss not too long ago. In anything you do, for me I’m specifically focused on weight loss and healthy living, community is key.

Weight Loss Community: how support makes all the difference

I’ve lost 50 pounds… twice…

I’m currently back on the side of attempting to do it again a third time. Getting to this point once again, I have struggled to get back into the same mindset and habits I once had. As I’ve struggled, I’ve tried to figure out what it was that helped me be so successful previously.

I’ve finally figured out the common denominator.

The times I’ve been most successful with weight loss and feeling good and healthy is when I have been excited about the new changes and have found support and accountability.

A weight loss community is instrumental to my own personal success.

In my case, I need to lose weight to become healthier and feel comfortable, but this could apply to anyone who is just looking to live healthier, build muscle, eat better, etc. Just replace “weight loss support” with the type of support you need.

Finding a Weight Loss Community
