Two years ago I made a decision to make a CHANGE! I was not happy in my own skin and was really struggling to find the motivation and accountability to do what I knew I needed to do to get my health and fitness back on track.

I had an eight month old baby boy and used every excuse to spend my spare time on the couch watching TV. This also meant eating junk all the time. My lunches usually consisted of: hot dogs, cheese, doritos, Chef Boy R Dee (yep even as a 30 year old!!!), more cheese, and maybe some reeces cups. WOW! Talk about the eating habits of a CHILD. That was me though! I thought it would be too hard to make a change and kept putting it off.

One day I decided that I had to change my habits, not just for me, but for my husband and little boy. If I expected my family to be and eat healthy, then I had to lead by example! I wanted to be the reason my family developed life long healthy habits, NOT the excuse they have in 20 years when they're addicted to junk food and have this huge hurdle to overcome.

Thank goodness I discovered the support and accountability of challenge groups. I knew I was not going to go to the gym because I didn't want to take the time away from my family, so I was happy to find that I could get some amazing results by working out at home. Plus, I replaced those terrible lunch choices with my healthiest meal of the day in shakeology!

I had my doubts, but I will tell you, the ONLY thing that kept me going, focused and determined was knowing that I had a group to support me and keep me accountable. When I didn't want to workout, I did it anyway because I didn't want to check in and say I slacked off.

Before finding the support and accountability group that worked for me, I used having a baby as an EXCUSE to be lazy, to slack off on taking care of ME and just get a little lost, losing my purpose and sense of self. I made the choice to be the positive influence I knew I could be for my little boy and make a change.

Now, I have 2 precious little ones, and I could easily say I don't have the time or energy to invest in myself, but I have learned that I cannot be the mom I want to be and that they deserve without first taking care of myself. If you have been making the excuse that you don't have time because you have to raise your kids, I encourage you to look at it from another angle and make them your REASON instead of your EXCUSE. You'll be amazed at how quickly your kids will follow your lead and start picking up on your new healthy habits! Just 30 minutes a day and a PLAN can make ALL the difference!
