My number one motivation for living a healthy lifestyle is my kids and being a fun mom.
The other day, when I was telling the kids I couldn’t play with them until after my workout, I realized things were a bit backwards. Making healthy changes shouldn’t get in the way of my number one goal.
I can’t think of a more fun way to stay fit than to play like a kid!
For all you Fun Moms, here is a list of ways you can play with the kids and achieve your healthy living goals!
When I entered this world of health and fitness in social media I had no idea how many people there were out there, or how many different approaches there were to healthy living. I was just looking to lose the baby weight and set a healthy examples for my two little ones. I had never heard of Paleo, CrossFit, Beachbody, etc.
From the beginning the Beachbody folks began to emerge and I got messages all the time asking about my fitness goals, inviting me to challenge groups, and telling me I would be a great addition to their team.
Now I’m going to share 5 tools to stop overeating or mindless snacking. I shared almost this exact same list during my My Day Friday post a couple weeks ago as my plan because I was struggling. Things have been better, so I’m rearranging my list and sharing a super helpful tool (with a giveaway!)
These are things I try to remember and hopefully they’ll help you too.
Whew! The holidays are over and the New Year is beginning!
Does anyone else feel like they just ran a marathon?
I feel like we’ve been running a race since Halloween! We left for Florida the first week of November, I attending a conference in Orlando, we spent a couple weeks helping out my grandparents with a remodel in another part of Florida, returned home on Thanksgiving Day, started the whirlwind of Christmas prep and shopping, had Kohls grant my wellness wish (details coming this week, I promise!) and film the family, hosted Christmas with my husband’s family, and completed all the Christmas festivities with my family and ended with a weekend at the cabin.
Wow! Now wonder!
I do have to give myself a bit of a pat on the back, though. After the craziness of November and the first week or two of December, I did finally remember to take care of myself around Christmas and this past weekend. Here are some things that helped me survive and some that I would like to continue to remember in the New Year.
