Kids = Excuse…um NO

Do you see my posts and wonder ‘challenger? Challenge group?’ …what is she referring to?!
I’m referring to YOU! To challenging yourself to make a change worth making!! AND to do it amongst other challengers in my accountability CHALLENGE group. It is a challenge to make a change! It isn’t always easy…change is hard BUT you CAN NOT spell challenge without change!!
I speak to MANY people daily who express interest in making a lifestyle change. Who want to eat healthier. Who want to start some sort of physical activity to better their health.
Want to know 1 of the biggest reasons that I am told why they just ‘can’t’ do it..or don’t do it!?!?!
Their kids!
I don’t have time…because of my kids. I can’t make that investment into myself…because I have kids!! PLEASE stop using your kids as an excuse!!!
Taking care of yourself is part of taking care of your kids.
It goes hand in hand! If you aren’t well WHOS going to be there to take care of your kids. If you can’t physically engage with your kids…whos missing out? YOU!
Truth be told…and…it may be a bit of brutal truth! BUT I am so passionate about what I do as a coach and I HATE to see when this becomes the reason why one does NOT make the change they claim they want to make!!
My Baby B is my reason!! My why!! Never my excuse!!
Figure out something else to sacrifice (tv, unnecessary shopping, Internet browsing, etc)to be able to make that commitment to change…don’t make excuses!

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
