What’s this all about??

I created this blog because as a single parent and mother I know life can be tough it can be hard it can knock you down then kick you while you’re trying to get back up. So many single moms end up just wading through life without really experiencing hope, happiness, success or really just things they wish they could do. They think because they are a mom or a working single mom that they can’t experience life or can’t want certain things or to see certain places. I was that way too once! I figured I’m a single mother why bother I’ll just work two jobs and be lucky to retire before I die. Now I am single mother , a soon-to-be divorcee and I can see my life clearer now that what I ever have!! Tune in next week where I begin to really pull back the layers of ME!!

No excuses. No matter what

No one ever said getting in shape would be easy.

In fact, it’s probably the single hardest thing you’ll ever do. There will be times when you want to give up. There will be times when you want to quit. Yes, there will even be times when your situation tests your dedication to your new lifestyle.

The key is: you have to choose, no matter what, to stick to your guns. That’s why it’s a “lifestyle change” and not a “I’m-doing-this-because-its-convenient-at-the-moment change”.

Changing your lifestyle isn’t a fad diet and it’s not something that just happens overnight with no effort. You either choose to be great every single day no matter what, or you stay the same.

There is no in between.

And before you tell me, “well you dont know what I’ve had to go through”, I suggest you watch fitness motivation.

To all the single parents

Being a single parent has its joys and its pains. Yes, we get twice the hugs, twice the kisses, and twice the joy of watching our children grow up to be the best people we’ve raised them to be…

But, we also get twice the headaches, twice the arguments, twice the stress and twice the i-need-a-drink-to-deal-with-this-child-whos-acting-just-like-me.

No it’s not easy, it’s not cheap and it’s definitely not a walk in Neverland but in the end it’s worth it 1000 times over.

Great job single parents, hug your kids and have a beer!

Meal prep success!!

While poolside I decided it would be a good idea to give some tips on meal prep success.

These tips are what I use to be successful when it comes to preparing meals for my family and you can use as well, even if you’re new to the meal prep game!

I realize it can be overwhelming but the more you do it the better you’ll get at it until eventually it’s second nature! Once that happens you’ll be able to think up all kinds of creative ways to meal prep AND will love it!!

Motivation Monday

Motivation Monday

This flower represents the struggles we face every day. You can either give up when you meet resistance or do everything in your power to grow and succeed.

Don’t let a little bit of push back stop you from being the beautiful flower you were meant to be. Sometimes the most beautiful plants have to go through the most to reach their full potential.

Don’t get caught doing this…

You just want to get in shape. You don’t want to compete, you don’t need to be the next Mr/Mrs Olympia, you just want to have a flat belly and be able to wave without your arm waving before and after.

You can start in your own home with equipment that’s far less likely to defend you to the emergency room. Get started today and stay safe by visiting our gym equipment store.

And because we care, we’ve also included some pretty damn funny gym fails for your watching pleasure.

Back day!!

After a week off from working out I am sooo super sore from my workout on Tuesday.

Today was back day and even with a sore everything lol I still managed this.

What’s great about this? It’s throwback Thursday and I wanted to share this because earlier this year I could barely do a wide grip pull up without assistance.

You can do anything you set your mind to as long as you’re willing to work for it! Taking even the smallest steps forward can get your further than you ever imagined!

Ready to take a step forward now? Visit where our strongest Fitness Warriors began and let’s do this together!

When I Was Growing Up…

When I was growing up I thought I wanted to be a pilot or a cop or firefighter or even a stormchaser. I’ve come to realize that what I really want to be…is water.

Water is unstoppable. It is flexible. It is strong. Beautiful. Calm. It can also be a dangerous force of nature that will destroy anything that gets in its way. It doesn’t apologize for what it is. It goes where it pleases and does what it wants.

Even its waves on the beach are a testament that life, no matter how difficult, can be rough can be tiresome. But with each wave that hits the sand, even if it doesn’t get as far as the last one, after a while, they extend until one wave after another goes further than the one before it. Even at times when the waves are the furthest from the shore line, they still crash and beat the sand reminding anyone who looks upon its beauty of where it was.

Water. I want to be water.
