Often times, us moms and women in general get so busy with life that it leaves us with very little time, if any at all, to ourselves. Between work and being our kids’ drivers, appointment schedulers, chefs, project facilitators, personal assistants, the list goes on and on, what time can we possibly have to ourselves?
While I agree that yes, life does get hectic, ladies: let’s STOP making excuses and let’s make ourselves and our health and fitness goals a priority. We tend to make time for what’s truly important to us, so set time apart for YOU because YOU are important.
Set a time for yourself that works for you – whether it be at 5 a.m. (yes, I said 5 a.m.), during your lunch break, while your kids are off in their extracurricular activities or even later in the evening – and give yourself YOUR time. Schedule appointments with yourself and don’t miss those appointments!
No idea what to do and how to start? It’s simple – just get moving! Find what works for you. Whether you go for a jog, jump rope, put together your own exercise routines or join a fitness class, just get moving!
Andddd to give you an extra motivational boost, I’ve teamed up with GRIT MIAMI and we’re giving away a package of 5 group fitness classes at their South Miami gym. GRIT MIAMI’s classes are the perfect mix between CrossFit, HIIT workouts and strength training — put together in a fun way and you’re guaranteed to be surrounded by amazing energy. They hold classes just about every hour starting at 5:30 a.m. through 9 p.m. so no excuses allowed!
To enter our giveaway, all you have to do is comment below and tell me what gets you motivated to work out! So sorry for my non-local readers but more giveaways to come.
Now, what’s stopping you? Let’s stop making excuses and let’s take the first step towards meeting our health and fitness goals. Once again, if it’s truly important to you – which it should be – you will make the time for it. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
