I'm sitting here smiling about you. I saw your Facebook or Instagram post roll by and it reminded me of you.
I'm smiling because, see, I know what you want. I know you have this goal. It's so big you haven't spoken it yet. You think people in your life won't understand.
So you just keep quiet.
But you keep grinding. Day after day. And I know what you are after.
I look forward to the day the world gets to feel the warmth of that fire that you are keeping to yourself.
We can’t control what others think, how they feel, when they choose to lash out, or the fact that they are committed to misunderstanding us. All we can do is live a life that is true to ourselves, what we know ourselves to be, and how we want to show up in the world… and that is far from mediocre.
You may have a solid exercise plan, but without a doable nutrition plan you can follow as a busy mom, it’s going to be tough to reach your goals for good. If you’ve followed me for long, you know I’m an advocate of balance and health. Let’s stop crash dieting and really make lasting changes for yourself and your family. Check out this complete diet plan.
Why do we feel that "mom guilt" when we finally want to go for a run or check our kiddos into the gym childcare for a bit?! What is up with feeling guilty about working on our own goals?! Click "play" and I'll share my raw thoughts with you. It's an emotional topic. :-)
So how do we fit in workouts as a busy mom? Work out faster!!
Like making any lasting change, finding time to work out requires a bit of planning, a bit of discipline, and a sometimes a shift in mindset to sticking to your new routine. But you are worth it, momma! Hopefully a few of these ideas will help you squeeze in a few workouts each week.
Time is always a factor when it comes to fitness and being a busy woman. Are you catching yourself give up the workout because there is no time to workout AND get ready for work or dinner plans, etc.? Let's nip that excuse in the bud and get fit and fresh!
"How to build a booty." you ask? Let's get to work!
Setting the goals in January is the “fun” part, "This is going to be the year!" --envisioning your muscular gains as you put on a bikini in the summer, or kill that marathon, etc. But there’s an enjoyment to be had in reflecting on how far you've come this year (or not come) and fine-tuning the process, as well.
There are a number of reasons to begin working out as a more mature adult!
