I’m often scared to share my journey.

.

I feel this way because, honestly, all of this does feel easy. Transitioning into motherhood was tough schedule-wise because I felt I was working around Michael’s schedule, but I have still been able to continue my health & fitness journey without skipping a beat once he came into our world ((of course after waiting for the ok to workout 6 weeks postpartum)). A workout might happen at 10 AM or not until 1 PM, but I just get it done.

.

I worry you’re thinking “oh she has it easy because she’s a stay-at-home mom….she has her husband to help watch her babe sometimes…she used to be a gymnast so she naturally likes working out…”

.

It’s funny I continue to battle these stories in my head about what people think of me, even though I’ve been working on my mindset for years now! When this happens, I remember the truths about these false statements:

.

✅ other’s opinions of me doesn’t matter

✅ it’s not easy being a stay-at-home mom

✅ Cody really can only watch Michael when I workout on the weekends because he sleeps during the day since he works during the night

✅ I actually DREADED going to the gym once I started my career as a teacher. Just because I’m a former gymnast doesn’t mean I love working out 😆 before, my motivation to do strength training was to improve my gymnastics skills! But with adult life, I thought “what’s the point now in exercising!?”

.

This is why these programs and tools have saved me. I have been able to easily do them as a full time teacher and ex-gymnast, to now as a stay-at-home mom.

.

Yes I’m scared to tell you these programs work because I know how easy it may seem they come to me now. But I’ve been in your shoes. I know it’s hard to change your lifestyle and invest in yourself. But you can do it!! I did it and continue to do so – why can’t you!?!
