Are you "SuperMom"?

Let me quickly answer that - absolutely not!

I hear this a lot.. "How do you do it all?!" or "I can barely function and keep my kids alive every day let alone fix good meals, workout, spend time with my kids, spend time with my significant other, keep up with the house and laundry... etc etc etc"

Let me confess something - I am insane about organization. Ask anyone who has known me for any length of time, I am known for countdowns. I keep track of EVERYTHING. Everything has a place, everything has a time to be done and so on. Can this be a downfall? YES. Does it help keep my days structured so I can get everything done? YES.

My easy go-to answer is always, "no, I'm not supermom but I am making myself a priority". I spent my entire life having other people tell me how unhealthy I was or how much weight I needed to lose but I never knew how (because I tried every DIET out there and NOTHING ever worked) and I never "had" the time. I put "had" in quotes because of course I had the time, everyone has the time, but you have to choose to use your time accordingly.

I finally snapped one day and said something has to give! I've been a corporate working woman who had a demanding boss and I worked log hours with at least an hour commute each way. I've been a SAHM of one child and now I'm a SAHM with two kids who are 20 months apart.

I'm a mom who spends half of the month doing most of everything by myself because of my husbands work schedule. I'm a mom who is solely responsible for both of my kids 24/7. I'm a mom who has a child in speech therapy which also requires extra work once a week and to help him succeed. I'm a mom who still has to wake up multiple times a night with the baby (I haven't slept a whole night through in over a year). Most importantly, I am a mom who cares about herself so no matter how much time all of those responsibilities take or how tired I am at the end of the day, I take care of myself too. Because I've been the mom who didn't take care of herself and I was miserable.

Are you ready for some tough love? If not, stop reading and come back to this post when you are. If you're ready to be pushed out of your comfort zone, keep reading :)

No matter what your story is, if you're married or not, if you have kids or not, if you work or go to school, YOU HAVE THE TIME to take care of yourself. The question is, are you going to MAKE the time? Give yourself some grace. You CAN'T do everything! At the end of the day you need to take care of you and your family - the rest will fall into place. Go from mommy guilt to mommy grace.

Are you a morning or evening workouter? (yes, I just invented that word) Do you take the extra steps to make sure you're fueling your body with the best nutrition? Do you meal plan to make sure you're eating good foods and feeding good foods to your family?

I would LOVE to help you get a schedule that works for you and your family. I am 100% committed to helping people learn the invaluable information I've learned to help them succeed.

This does not require you to be super mom, super wife, super student, etc. All this requires is for you to have a reality check with yourself and understand you have to make YOU a priority and you have to take care of yourself!! Happy mom = Happy home, right?! Right.

Do this for you. Don't put it off anymore. Don't keep making excuses for yourself - Quit saying you're too tired, you're too busy, you're too overweight, you've tried before and failed why would this be different.. STOP! They are all lies and YOU CAN DO THIS. We will do it together. We WILL succeed together. We will CHANGE OUR LIVES.

Who is ready to make the change and start your journey?
