I learned a new phrase the other day. And no, my daughter did not learn it at school. (Thank God I'm not THERE yet!). It's was "mom shaming".
Have you heard about this? It's the act upon which other mothers or women put down another mom or woman because the don't agree with her actions, behavior, choices, decisions or appearance.
I heard about it when a fellow blog writer and personal trainer posted a picture of herself and her three young children.
Day 8 and you are still standing. At the end of these 30 days, you WILL be the strongest you have ever been. This time, it will be different. Your mind is set to win because this time, you have been inspired by your heart. Deep down inside you know the truth about yourself, who you are and what you are capable of achieving.
My PEOPLE...how are you? I have to say, it does seem like I'm having a conversation with myself most of the time but I guess this is true until someone reads it. Today I want to touch on what I like to call "Fitness Alliances". What is a Fitness alliance you ask? Its people, places or things that remind you or encourage you to remember that health and wellness are now a PRIORITY in your life. Again I go back to the "know it all attitude". I am guilty of this my damn self.
It’s that time of the year again when the question arises whether or not to make New Year’s resolutions. I always do (and I won’t tell you what they are), and some I manage to keep, and others may need to be transferred to this year’s list.
The priest at our church has asked at least two or three times in the last 6 months how many people are still keeping up with their New Year's resolutions. My husband always chuckles and shakes his head as he sees my hand go up. I'm proud of the fact that I set a goal and go for it, but don't for a minute think that it gets easier or that I don't have my own doubts and fears. I do! I just refuse to look back on my life and say, "I wish I had...."
Its November. The month of Thanksgiving and I’ve enjoyed reading everyone’s posts on Facebook stating what they’re thankful for that day. Its wonderful to see all the blessing bestowed upon friends and family.
You work out all the time but you are still not seeing the changes in your body that you want to see. Being physically fit is not just about working out the body, it is also about working out the mind. You can work out every day but if you keep filling your brain with negative self talk you are fefeating all the hard woek that your body is doing.
I've wanted to write this blog post for a few months now. The theme has been ruminating in my head, but the words have escaped me. Till today that is. So, let me put this bluntly, its time for us girls to start lifting each other up! If we want to succeed as women, as mothers, as wives, as daughters, in achieving our goals, in living our most fantastic lives imaginable, if we want our children, our daughters to succeed, then we need to start supporting each other.
