#Fitmom

Hi Everyone! Happy Monday to all of you! I am very glad that this day is finally coming to an end. Not that it was long or anything. I am just ready to enjoy my sleep! Lol! Coming home to my children is one of the best feelings in the world, but somedays (like today) there is a lot of Mommy! Mommy! Mommy! They ask for me when I am taking a shower. They ask for me when I use the restroom. They will walk right past my husband and ask me something that they could have asked him! It is annoying, but at the same time it is very flattering that they think that highly of me.

At the end of 2017 I released my book, “I Am Well & Fit: Wellness Tips for the Busy Adult From a Fit Mom.” In the book I talk quite a bit of the challenges I face daily being a wife, friend, sister, daughter, and of course a mom. I try my best to balance all of these “hats” everyday. One of the best roles though is being a mom. A fit mom at that. Being a fit mom means more to me than just a mom that exercises and is “hot.” It is how I take care of myself. It is how I take time for me. It is how I still choose to persue my dreams despite being a mother of three.

I have created a wellness routine that works for me. It is a routine that helps me recenter my life everyday. Let’s be honest, if my cup isn’t full, I won’t have anything to give anyone else. As a woman we can sometimes feel guilty for taking care of ourselves first, but I encourage you to do so. Once you take control of you, sky is the limit! Even when I feel down I can turn to my routine, and I almost always feel better, recharged, and ready to move forward.

If you are a woman. More specifically if you are a mom, I encourage you to explore what makes you at #fitmom. Is it just exercise, or do you agree with me that it is so much more? Let me know in the comments what you conclude for your own life. I hope this encourages a woman just like me today.

Be well you guys!

Reliving the Glory Days

Hi Everyone, and Happy Monday to you! I hope you had a wonderful Monday. I love Mondays I feel so productive. Unlike the rest of the country, Mondays fill me with a new energy I can’t describe. I feel like I can take over the world!

This weekend I had the opportunity to go to the Arcadia Invitational. It has been a couple of years since I went. For all of you who don’t know what the Arcadia Invitational is, it is one of the biggest high school track and field meets in the country. Teenagers from all over the country come to show off their speed, and battle for the fastest times in the country. Needless to say, I felt right at home.

Did you know reliving the glory days is another way to increase your overall wellness? Whether it is being a spectator at a cherished event, or listening to a song from your childhood, reliving the glory days can instantly put you in a good mood. I was recently feeling down about somethings in my life, and I began to play John Legend’s first album in my car. I turned it all the way up, and just rocked out! While singing to the top of my lungs I almost felt tears come to my eyes because I was just filled with happiness about where I have come from, and where I am now going.

Want to improve you overall wellness today? Try to recreate a precious moment in your life. Don’t overthink it, just live in that moment with no worries. I promise you will feel better after. I hope this encourages someone, and I hope you take this all through your week.

Be well.

Do It Your Way

Hi everyone and Happy Monday to you all! I hope you all had a great weekend. For me this weekend was filled with fun and family. I love family, and I was happy to see everyone’s face as we just spent some good ole quality time together. Although I am a bit tired now, it was well worth it.

Tonight I want to talk to you about doing it your own way. I have been having some challenges at work finding my flow. I am blessed by the opportunity of doing what I do, but I know I can be doing more to help more people. The only peace I truly get is when I get to work on my own projects. They keep me going. Everyone that knows me knows that I want to get out and help people live healthier lives, but sometimes I can feel restricted with the position I am in. I talked about it with my husband, and he reminded me that I have to do things my way. I have to incorporate my own flavor in my day to day.

Have you ever felt this way? You want to do more, but are sometimes limited by your environment? It can be a bit of a sticky situation because I am thankful for where I am, and how far I have come, but I know God has more for me. To live on my own terms. Controlling my own time.

It is very relateable to health and fitness. Nobody’s way is going to work but yours. How you go about situations or tackle a challenge is all up to you. You may have guidance, but in the end it is what you decide to you. No one is responsible for your health but you! So I want to encourage you today to do it your way. Find a physical activity that you love and rock it! Set goals, realistic goals, start, and keep going. I believe in you. We truly are what we constantly think. You mind is powerful! Your body is powerful! You are amazing, and you can live the life God intended for you. You can have the body, health, and mental stability that you want. You just have to find what works for you, and do it your way.

Be well you guys.

6 Months

 

PW2672414

Hi everyone, and happy Monday to you! This morning I was listening to my morning motivation as I always do, and I couldn’t help but think of the quote of how your life could be totally different in 6 months if you just take the time to work hard and stay committed. I am not sure that is exactly how it goes, but I think I am close. Then I starting to think, what if I began to do this? Not procrastinate. Not doubt, but just do 6 months of action. I have been telling my husband that I have been having this itch to leave my mark. To work for myself, and to just go for it!

Now I know I have other obligations and responsibilities to consider, but I want to make this commitment to myself. Hard work and dedication for 6 months and see how my life changes. My specific goals are to eat healthier; especially at lunch, exercise 4 to 5 days a week for at least 30 minutes or more, finish writing my book, and continually gain more client’s and grow my own business.

Have you ever felt this way? Like a shift or change is needed in your life, and you have finally found the path you want to lead? I am here to tell you it can be done. Won’t you join me? 6 months of steady hard work. The type of work that will prepare you for the life you want ahead. Whether you want to pray more, eat healthier, exercise more, be a better parent, or any number of things you want to do, YOU CAN DO IT! I would love to hear from those of you who want to make the commitment with me. I’ll ask you again… WON’T YOU JOIN ME?

Be well you guys.

Kid’s Fitness

Last week we began talking about children’s health and fitness, and we are going to continue this week because I was super busy preparing for my workshop last Saturday.

…so let’s throw it back to when I had the honor of exercising with these cuties at my daughters school. The key to children’s fitness is just to keep it fun. We played balloon volleyball and had a veggie pass relay. Every activity was fun and kept their interest! Start them young and hopefully they’ll continue for a lifetime! 🌿💖💪🏽
