Fear No Monday!

RTC

Monday has such a bad reputation. It’s the most hated day of the week. And this Monday, the first after a holiday…dreaded. No one wants to go back to work or school and face another week full of long days before another weekend.
 
Today I challenge you to flip your stance on Monday. Don’t fear Monday, embrace it. Monday is a chance to have a new start. Whatever happened last week is now behind you and there is a brand new week in front of you. Step into your routine with a smile instead of a grimace.
 
–> Change the way you look at Monday and maybe Monday won’t be so bad after all!
 
What are you doing today that is going to start your week off great?

O’Dark Thirty

Time: It never seems to be on anyone’s side.

“I don’t have time to workout. You don’t understand how busy I am”

Trut12246904_10208532177170095_2376940590055972353_nh: Everyone is busy. You are no more busy than anyone else. Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “It’s not a priority” because that’s the truth. <— Ouch. 🙈

I’m not special and I don’t have any super powers or extra hours in my day. Here is what helps me fit in workouts with a busy schedule:

–> Be selfish with your time before anyone is awake. That might mean sacrificing some sleep. I promise losing 30 minutes of sleep to do a workout will actually make you feel more energized throughout the day.
–> Put yourself on your own calendar. If you don’t plan a time to do it, your day will run you over.
–> Push yourself when you don’t want to. If you wait to feel like working out, you’ll be waiting a long time. You can’t feel yourself into an action but you can act your way into a feeling.
–> Find a workout accountability partner that you can text/call that will push you through your excuses.

Just do it. <— Simple advice but completely spot on!

Workout because you love yourself.

I spent a lot of energy hating my body over the years. I would look in the mirror and see all the things I didn’t like and never see the true beauty and strength that lied under my perceived flaws.

But, hating my body didn’t serve me. It destroyed my confidence and made me feel miserable about myself. Is this you too?

I had to change my thinking and love my body in all its glory.

–> My body grew three amazing kids, it carried me miles and miles when I ran a marathon, it holds my kids close in embraces, it’s strong and doesn’t get the credit it should.

I love my body enough to take care of it and challenge it daily.

Life is too short to be at war with yourself and hate your body. Love yourself for all that you are and take care of yourself not because you have to, but because you can.

 

 

Mama Guilt: Let it Go

Dear Mom,12227019_10208468573420041_6053575443312866987_n

You carry the world on your shoulders and if that’s not enough, you pick up some heavy guilt along the way. It’s a heavy load with your own expectations to be everything to everyone. You feel guilty that you’re not good enough, not around enough, not doing enough. You want to be the perfect mama to your amazing kids.

Stop. Just stop.

It’s okay to take a moment and nurture your soul. It’s okay to want time away from your family. It’s perfectly normal to feel like you’re going insane.

Give yourself grace and let go of the mama guilt. Guilt has no space in the place of grace. Embrace rest, take care of yourself and let go of all of the feelings that don’t serve you.

You are the mama your kids need and you are enough.

Love,
A mama that’s tired of carrying around guilt

So much chaos…

Some days…who am I kidding, most days my life19986_10208414931879036_6540282672955388528_n is pure chaos. I don’t know if I’m coming or going, I’m rushing around and trying to do it all.

Between homework, activities, work, life, laundry and everything else that goes with being a mom it’s easy to lose sight of the joy.

Embrace the chaos and find the glory. It might be hidden under some laundry but it’s there.

You’ll find it in the stolen kisses before bedtime, the quick moments of kids playing together, the frenzied dance parties and in the glorious mess.

Shoot for the moon.

RTC 227Yesterday I set a big goal for myself that’s really, really scary. I call it a BIG HAIRY AUDACIOUS GOAL and when I think about it it makes me have butterflies in my stomach.

Is there a chance that I might fail? Uh huh!
Is it going to take a lot of work? Of course!
Does it feel next to impossible? Yes
Is it worth trying for? ABSOLUTELY!

Even if I fail, I will have pushed myself, grown and taken chances I wouldn’t have if I didn’t even try at all.

Do you have a big dream too? GO FOR IT!! Even if you fall short you’ll still have done some amazing things and landed among the stars!

Goodbye comfort zone.

RTC 225I remember this day like it was yesterday because my emotions were all over the place. We were leaving Arizona and heading back to Washington…for good. I had been away from home for 13.5 years and I dreamed of coming back. But I was so scared to leave our life of Air Force stability. It was all I had known and the thought of not having a steady paycheck each month scared me so much. We were jumping into the unknown and I wasn’t ready to live outside of my comfort zone. I wanted to cling to our old life.

To be honest, my emotions were all over the place for the first 9 months of being back in Washington. I was so glad to be back home but life didn’t fall into place like I dreamed it would. We didn’t buy a house, we weren’t living in the right school district and D didn’t find a job right away. It was hard and I often found myself dreaming of our old life and wishing for the stability I loved so much.

I was filled with bitterness and it wasn’t until I let got of it that I truly started to blossom. I learned that I had to stop looking back and prosper where I was planted. I had to learn to survive in the place I felt completely uncomfortable and in doing that I started to thrive.

This experience in life has taught me that great things can come from unexpected places. Because of this life of instability, I have found myself with an amazing opportunity to help others while helping my family earn an income. I have found my passion and my career and I wouldn’t have found it if we hadn’t have left our old life.

Change can be scary but sometimes it’s exactly what we need to grow.

Confession: I’m a hot mess

Confession: I’m a hot mess.

Sometimes I’m a crazy lunatic in front of my kids.
Sometimes we have cereal for dinner.
Sometimes I don’t have time to shower and I wear pajamas in public.
Sometimes the laundry doesn’t get put away for awhile.
Sometimes life is hectic and homework gets forgotten.

I don’t have it all together and I’m completely okay with it.

If I had to guess, I bet you’re a hot mess too

It’s not just me.

It’s not just me…

You might have seen my post last week and thought – that’s great for HER but it would never work for ME.

After I shared that post, several of the coaches on my team saw it and wondered how THEY did in their first 90 DAYS coaching – here are some of the results.
