It's almost Summer time.
It's almost vacation time.
It's almost swimsuit time.
Any other mama's out there dread that combination!?!?
I've taken a huge leap over the past several months towards becoming the healthiest I can be.
For myself. For my husband. And, for my kids.
I work out with the girls at lunch every single day. We run 2 days a week and do circuit training the other 3. I run once on the weekend. They're such great motivation and if they weren't doing it with me, I wouldn't have been going on about 3 months straight of working out!
Let's be honest....if it weren't for them, I probably wouldn't have started to begin with!
That's step one.
Get a friend or someone else to do it with you.
If they're waiting for you at the gym, you're way less likely to stand them up and not go!
Anyone else struggle with finding the time?
That was my biggest obstacle.
I already work 40+ hours a week. Plus several hours on my side job, Thirty-One.
I am on a committee for our annual hometown Apple Festival which requires time for planning and meetings.
I'm also helping to plan my 10 year high school reunion for this summer.
I'm not willing to give up any more time from my family that I already have to.
That was always my reasoning. And, really it's still true. If I didn't make it work during my lunch hour, I still wouldn't be doing it. I'm not a morning person. At all. So waking up at 5AM to do it, just isn't going to happen for this night owl.
And, we don't live in town. So driving all the way back to town after the girls go to sleep just never seems like a good idea either.
Bottom Line - find a time that works for you. Whether it be early morning, late at night, during lunch. Whatever. Just find the time that works with YOUR schedule and make it happen.
Lastly, meal plan and get your nutrition in order. Charlie and I use Advocare products and really like them. We're starting a 24 day challenge this weekend so that we can kick start ourselves again before vacation! Part of the challenge is making sure your food is on point! So I made this meal plan worksheet to help me keep track of everything.
I'm filling this out, then flipping it over and making my shopping list on the back so I make sure I have everything I need.
Just right click, save and print! :)

If you're interested in trying out Advocare, send us an email! We'd love to have you do the challenge with us! I'm a distributor only because I love the product discount. I'm working towards getting to the next discount level so I'm handing out some major discounts to anyone who wants to order! :)
