I learned something this week. Something painful but also something I'm very thankful for. I am in the easiest stage of parenting ever and it doesn't get easier from here on. And yes, I have a three year old and a 19 month old. But I still consider this the easiest...read more
"Not right now, but maybe later." Have you ever said those words or maybe even heard those words? If you're a mom, I'm sure you've heard those words, spoken those words, and know those words all too well. How many of you are familiar with just waiting for the right...read more
"If we were all so passionate about the gospel as we are about our personal endeavors, Jesus would come back tomorrow because the whole world would already hear the gospel." Some of the most authentic words I've heard came directly from my pastor. Think about it....read more
There are all sorts of diets or "lifestyle choices" as some like to call it. You can do Whole30, Paleo, Keto, Vegetarian, Vegan, Plant Based, Low fat/high carb, Intermittent fasting, you name it. I have tried a number of these and I will say, most of these can be...read more
I know this is a BIG discussion among many moms these days. Years ago exercising during pregnancy was frowned upon. In fact, even a few decades ago if a mom decided to break out in a sweat during pregnancy, many would raise their concerns and voice their opinions on...read more
TEN FIT TIPS FOR THE BUSY MOM
1. Involve your Kids– it’s almost impossible to get anything done with the kids around. So put on some good music, get moving, and everyone will be ready for naps by the end of it! Even 10 minutes is worth it.
3. Youtube everything— Not sure how to do a move? Youtube has an answer for anything. You can even follow along if you’re still confused. Don’t let a workout intimidate you.
5. Be sure to get enough sleep– I know this is hard with little kids. But make sure you catch up during the day somehow. Your muscles need recovery time and sleep is the best remedy for that!
8. Patience is key to fitness– the weight didn’t come on overnight so it won’t come off overnight. Or if you’re not dealing with weight issues, maybe it’s balance and strength. Set realistic goals.
10. Set goals– Write it down what you want exactly. If you want to lose 1-2lbs a week, write it down. If you want to see yourself exercising 3-5 times a week, write it down. Set those goals and stick to it!
2. Take the kids to the park– make good use of the monkey bars, stairs, benches, and big field. Kids can play and mommy can get some fitness time in!
4. Drink one cup of water every hour– Start your morning off with water and continue throughout the day. Feeling tired, bloated, and lightheaded? You’re probably not getting enough water. It’s important to flush out toxins.
7. 80/20– 80% of the time you’re a fitness guru and a health nut. But the remaining 20% you indulge in some serious chocolate cake, cookies, ice cream, or whatever your inner “food junkie” soul loves. It’s all about balance.
9. You have to be committed— If you’re motivated and tell yourself you can, you most definitely will. But first you have to commit that you want it. Once you want it, you’ll have the drive to get it. Commit to 3-5 days of exercise a week.
