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.
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!

Here is a screenshot of the meals (points) that I can have daily.
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).
Every day, I also get a workout. Here is a small portion of last Thursday’s workout
(EACH PICTURE LINKS TO A VIDEO in case you need tips on how to do the workouts WHEN I LOG INTO MY BUSY MOMS BOOTCAMP ACCOUNT):
Ok- I think that by now you get the idea. It has everything that you need to reach your goals: meal plans, workout, support groups.
