Fit Mama...even with no time!

So I'm a personal trainer, owner of Performance Fitness training studios AND a Senior Sales Coordinator with the Juice Plus Company on top of a mama of 4 little girls...BUSY BUSY BUSY! But I wouldn't change it for the world because I thrive on being busy.
My biggest issue now though is when do I get my own workouts in? I need them for my sanity (and my husbands) as well as staying fit is important to me and important for my job!
So I've decided and designed my own Tabatta workouts to be done at home and all in 25mins! It's wicked and NO EXCUSES! Currently i'm sitting here feeling my Chest and Triceps from Sundays workout and tonight is a focus on Back and Biceps along with core and cardio always. My goals is to do 5 days/wk for the next 30 days and do a before and after pic of myself and my hubby.
You don't need to do 60mins, you just need to be efficient with your time. The more doable you make it the more successful you will be. Consistency is the key to results, stick to a plan that works for you and you'll see results and FEEL MOTIVATED.

Holiday Healthy Tips

Hey Everyone! How have you been over Christmas (if you celebrate) or over the Winter Break with staying active and not over indulging too much? For me, I would rather drink wine than eat desserts to be honest and that was my plan, a little wine but saying no to too much dessert....how do you think that went when the homemade goodies came out?! FAIL!!!
So i had my wine then i also had the dessert! CRAP!

Here are my top 5 tips for the rest of the holidays though, no matter what happened over the past week;

    1. Forgive Yourself and MOVE ON! You can't change what you ate or drank but you can chose going forward what you're going to put in your mouth
    2. Enjoy Yourself...within reason! If you know you're going to have a free-for-all New Years night, then be super clean the rest of the day leading up to that. Drink water, Have smoothie for breakfast and protein and veggies for lunch and snacks.
    3. Be Active; Get out and go for walks/runs, play in the snow (now that we have some) or get to the gym. You don't want to come out of the holidays and take the next 6wks to feel back to normal
    4. Rest and Recover; we all most likely went into the holidays super busy and super stressed, take this time to get at least 8hrs of sleep and possibly nap
    5. Write down some personal/business/family goals for yourself in 2016. Write down a BIG goal then a few 6 month goals and 3 months then by the end of Jan goal. When you write them down they are MUCH more likely to get done.
