I’m writing this before weighing in because I’m pretty sure this is off to a bad start and we may be seeing a gain…
I’m still struggling… Nothing seems to be enough to keep me from poor eating choices…
Each time I make a mistake leads to a downward spiral that ruins my whole day or week. I keep thinking of those memes – if you dropped your phone, you wouldn’t smash it until it breaks, or something like that…
I’ve definitely been smashing my good days at some point or another more often than not.
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.
