My time with a personal trainer: summary of my Kohls Wellness Wish

In November I got the surprise of a lifetime.

When I shared my Wellness Wish in a Kohl’s Facebook group, I never dreamed I would receive a phone call telling me they were setting me up with a personal trainer three days a week for three months!

It was a complete dream!

Throughout December, January, and February I had an amazing time learning from a great trainer, staying committed to my fitness, and taking some time for myself 3 days a week. For the month of March we did one day a week.

And then it stopped…

My Day Friday: Voting for the IDEA World BlogFest Lightning Round is open!

I found myself writing too much for others and letting my own journey suffer.  For the last couple month Friday has been My Day, and I share more personal posts.

This week:

  • I’m sad to see my Kohls gift end, but so proud of what I accomplished
  • I’m in a good place with my motivation, planning, and excited to take charge of my journey myself
  • The voting opened for the IDEA World BlogFest Lightning Round, and I am so honored to be in the running again this year!

My Wellness Wish Video!!!

The time has come!

When Kohls granted my Wellness Wish, they also came to film our family for a couple days and…

the video is finished!!!

Kohls Wellness Wish Video It’s so surreal to see your story in such a beautiful video, and wonder if anyone will find it interesting because it’s just your everyday life.

I know I will cherish it forever.

It’s a beautiful snapshot of a moment of my life that I know I will always look back on fondly – the sweet time when I was staying home with my babies, dreaming big things, and realizing wishes can come true and anything is possible.

Thank you so much to everyone at Kohls who helped grant my wish, giving this busy momma some moments to focus on herself and dream even bigger, and for the greatest gift of all – giving me the support to become the healthy and fun woman I want my children to remember and emulate! They will be forever changed because they will know that dreams do come true and you can achieve anything you set your mind to!

What do you think!?!

What would your Wellness Wish be?

The Day My Wellness Wish Was Granted!

What is your Wellness Wish?

If you could wish for anything to help you on your health and wellness journey or help you keep up your healthy habits, what would it be?

...and how ecstatic, blessed, touched, etc. would you be if someone granted that wish?

I got the opportunity to find out, and it has been amazing!

What a week! {my Kohls #wellnesswish and giveaway details}

Oh my goodness, you guys, last week was a whirlwind!

Actually, it goes back about two weeks ago…

My mess reflects my mood - You want to know how it's going???As I started the Health and Fitness Holiday Giveaway Hop, I felt behind because we had just gotten back from 3 weeks away and I didn’t have all my giveaway items in line as the holiday weekend hit. I sent out emails to all the amazing companies from WOW Summit and was completely overwhelmed by their generosity!! I ended up with prizes so amazing it seemed like I could have done 5 seperate giveaways and still have them be awesome! Then came the hard part, keeping up with the reviews that I wanted to go with the prizes to thank the amazing folks who were so generous as to offer amazing prizes for you!

So, what happens when we’re already a little stressed with settling in after a trip, setting some strict deadlines for a usually 2-3x per week blogger, and getting back to reality before Christmas?

You can expect to get hit with a few curveballs!
