My Top 5 Ways to Get AND Stay Motivated.

Let me open by saying motivation is not a happy accident. It isn’t going to magically smack you in the face one day and if you wait around to “feel” motivated, I’m gonna give it to you straight, it’s probably NOT going to happen anytime soon.

Break Away from the Distractions

Before leaving I often felt that my spark for life was missing. I was happy… my marriage is great, my kids are perfectly challenging and our finances are pretty much in order. Seemingly, the perfect combination for happiness, right?! So why did I not feel that pep in my step and vibrancy for life that I desire?

The JOY of Working Out with your Kids!

Last week my sister and I were so excited about the Spring weather that we planned an outdoor workout.  We just knew the kids would play like the little angels in the backyard while we knocked out a bodyweight workout.   For all my mom followers out there I’m sure you are laughing at my delusional vision right now.

We started in to our workout and it wasn’t 5 minutes in that the meltdowns, and I mean meltdowns, began.  There was not a single moment where one of them wasn’t happy.  There were lots of tears, kids clinging to any and …Read More
