I am a mother of two myself, so I definitely understand how it can be tough to eat right and work out when you’re trying to raise a family. My kids are grown now, but I understand the time constraints! I’ve got a couple of tips for you moms out there, because I figured — what better gift to give than the gift of health and fitness?


My first gift to you is to remind you to be realistic with your goals. There are a lot of quick-fix fads out there, but they are not going to work for you because they put so much pressure on you to get fast results. Instead of worrying about getting your body completely in shape quickly, give yourself three months, six months, even a year, to hit some of your goals. Make small goals to start off with, and when you achieve them, make your next set of goals! You’ll get there!


My second gift is to remind you of how important it is to take time for yourself. Now, I know how hard it can be! I know you’re trying to run a busy household, and it’s so easy to feel like you don’t have any time for yourself! But as a mom, it is so important to find ways to carve out that “me time!” BeachBody is helpful here, because there are so many programs available that there will be one that works for you in the amount of time you can manage. Some of the P90X programs are 40 minutes to an hour. Some Insanity programs are around 30 minutes for a workout. But there’s also 10-Minute Trainer! You don’t have to think that you have to clear your whole schedule for an hour or more to get a workout in! There are so many different things you can do to get yourself in shape! And it’s so important, that I really want to urge you to not let lack of time be an excuse. A short workout is better than no workout!


My last gift is to remind you to eat healthy! It’s not just about working out. We’ve got to take care of us from the inside out! That’s going to take meal planning, and meal prep, so that you always have healthy food on hand to eat. Obviously I’m a big proponent of Shakeology, and it’s so easy to get that into the mix to give yourself a quick boost of nutrition, whether you’re using it to replace a breakfast, or a lunch — or sometimes, even dinner! As a mom it is so important to have good nutrition, because it takes a lot of energy to do what we do! And being healthy and fit will help us to be better moms!
