It is so important for my kids to see my husband and I TAKING CARE OF OURSELVES! The way that I eat, work out, etc… all impacts my children.  Plus, working out raises endorphins and that makes you feel better, happier, more joy-filled!

I want to teach them the skills to have a healthy, long life! I do not want to teach them to “diet”… I want to teach them to make healthy choices that will help them live a healthy life every day.

So- who wants to do a 6 week fitness challenge with me and busy moms bootcamp (& have a free 7 day membership to Busy Moms Bootcamp!) ?   Sign ups for the challenge end on Feb. 14th and the challenge begins on Feb 17th.

SERIOUSLY!  I am going to do this and I am going to update you every week!
I want to hear your updates, too!!

Let me tell you my goals & why I want to do this:

1- I used to work out heavily – I blame it on lack of time now, but I really just don’t do much more than about 20 min. at night, if that.   (ps- here are 7 exercises to do while you are sitting at work)

2- I used to eat only healthy foods (confession time:  since having our four kids, I have been able to eat whatever I want, whenever I want and still lose weight.  Lucky me, I know, but I did this for 8 years!  I am finally at the point where I am not pregnant or breastfeeding, so I am starting to gain a few pounds.  Only about 5 lbs. so far, but when you are 4’11, five pounds shows on you pretty quickly and it will quickly turn into ten pounds if I don’t start watching!)

3- I want to be able to run far again! haha.  I used to run several miles a day & now I am winded after half a mile!

4- I just want to be healthy, overall, and this is a good way to do it.

5- Teaching my children that every choice that you make can be one to better yourself and keep you as healthy as God wants you to be –  to live a long, happy, healthy life. 

Here is a recent picture of my husband and I (so you can see where I am beginning) – out to eat at our favorite restaurant, The BrickHouse (without kids!) when my in-laws were visiting. 

SO- I normally do Fit2B (& love them) but this week, some friends have asked me to team up with them at Busy Moms Bootcamp and we are going to do a 6 week challenge and everyone is invited to join us!   (You can get a free week to try it out here and then if you decide to join within those 7 days, you can save 30% off of the subscription fee with the code YOURMODERNFAMILY)

Fit Bit (win)


 Here is a screenshot of the meals (points) that I can have daily.

Like I said, I do the point system because I belong to emeals already , so here is a tiny bit of what I get daily: Screen Shot 2014-02-09 at 2.03.36 PM


And then I refer to the chart that they provide to tell me what I can eat for each point.  (so a whole wheat bagel is one point.  Sorry that you can’t see the whole thing- it was too big, so I just took a screenshot of part of it). Screen Shot 2014-02-09 at 2.03.57 PM



Every day, I also get a workout.  Here is a small portion of  last Thursday’s workout

So dive right in & I’ll meet you in the FB private group!  🙂   Let me know if you are going to do the 6 week challenge with me!   I’m excited to start!!

  1. My spouse and i felt now happy when Emmanuel managed to deal with his homework from your ideas he gained out of the weblog. It’s not at all simplistic just to continually be offering instructions which often some people might have been selling. And now we grasp we’ve got the blog owner to give thanks to for this. The type of illustrations you made, the simple site menu, the relationships you assist to create – it’s got everything terrific, and it’s letting our son and us reckon that that theme is interesting, which is certainly really mandatory. Many thanks for everything!
