Today is the Day!


I can't lie - I'm still in shock that I was chosen to be part of this test group for Beachbody's newest program releasing in July, The Shift Shop.  After doing a few of the workouts with celebrity trainer, Chris Downing, while in Punta Cana, I know this is exactly what this mama needs right now.

I'm going to be honest with you...sometimes what I say and what I do don't necessarily match.  I'm really good at helping other women justify and understand why it's so important for us to make time for ourselves.  I'm really good at preaching self-love and #treatyoself.  But, when it comes to doing it for me, I fail over and over again.

It's no secret that I've struggled since having baby #2 with getting back on the healthy and fit bandwagon.  I'll be real - baby #2 rocked my world.  I had just gotten the swing of things when we decided we were ready to add a little more crazy to already pretty crazy life.  DO NOT LET ME FOOL YOU - it was the best decision ever, we planned this, and we do not regret it for a millisecond.  It's just been a much longer adjustment period than we thought it would be.  I mean, after baby #1 you're a pro....right?!

Chris Downing is not just motivational, he's empowering.  And listening to him speak truth into the faces of women who were overcoming obesity and physical disabilities and still showing up to work out with him wile we were on vacation spoke to this little place in my heart that has been neglected for the past 9 months.

I've struggled to make myself a priority.  I do a good job for a few days or a week or maybe even 2 weeks in a row and then something throw me off.  I travel or the baby has a few nights with little sleep or something goes down at work and it takes me a while to get back on track.  

This feels different.  I'm part of this group and I've got all these supports going through the same motions as me and I don't want to let them down!  Most of all, I don't want to let myself down.  I've been doing that a lot lately.  

So, today is the day.  No more looking at motivational quotes; I'm committing to myself.  I'm doing this.

I've been trying to figure out a way to share this journey as transparently as possible (there are restrictions since the program is not yet released) and I think I will start doing weekly recaps on the blog, but you can bet I will be sharing my day-to-day on Facebook, Instagram, and My Facebook Stories.  I hope you join me!
