Do Over + Weekly Menu and Workout Schedule

Ok my friends!

I’ve been planning this post FOR A LONG TIME.

But I have been procrastinating because of FEAR. It’s so scary to put yourself out there, expose your faults, share your passions, and express your feelings. But I’ve had this little voice in my head that has told me not to be afraid, and that’s why this post exist today.

I’ve explained a lot in this crazy video that follows, but here is a quick summary. I have not been the best healthy living/lifestyle gal for a while… I just haven’t. I think when we experience hard times/good times, we grow and we learn from these experiences. Having babies, going through personal struggles, being a mama, and everything in between hasn’t always been easy, but I have loved every.single.part. My life, my kids, and my husband are my greatest blessings. But a long the way, especially having 3 kids under 5, I have had to do some ‘re-learning’ so to speak. Figuring out how to live healthy when things are different or challenging.

So watch the video to get more of the details! I feel so happy to share this with you, and I hope this brings us closer and lets you know that we all struggle, and we all aren’t perfect! And we can come back!

So, what do you think!

Do over

In order to be held accountable, and to show you what I’ll be doing to get back on track, I’ve decided that on Monday’s I’ll include my weekly workout schedule and our family’s weekly dinner plan. Planning is key, and when it’s all written out for you, I know it can be a lot easier to succeed. It may not be a perfect workout week, or the best menu, but it’s the reality of what I’m doing. I’m not going to sugar coat it and tell you I’m doing 1 thing, when I’m really not. ๐Ÿ™‚ Not cool guys. Not cool.

    I feel the exact same way. I’m so in a rut right now and am so anxious to get good vibes flowing again. Being a mom and balancing everyone’s lives, plus trying to balance your own is hard and sometimes I’m good at it and sometimes I’m not so good. That is why each day I thank my Father in heaven for a fresh start to each new day. Here’s to new beginnings!

  3. Oh my goodness – you are adorable. My heart was breaking watching your video. Please don’t be so hard on yourself. What I wouldn’t give to go back to those sleepless nights and days spent with my children (when I too fell off the band wagon more than once). I know it’s not easy, but it seems like you are doing the best you can. No one can do it all flawlessly. If they say they are, they’re lying! ha ha. Your girls are beautiful – enjoy them! This too shall pass!!! Keep up the good work! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. You are perfect just the way you are and one of my favorite bloggers no matter what you post. I love your honesty. And seeing those beautiful smiles and hearing those giggles, you are a fantastic mother! Enjoy these moments with the kids because before you know it you will miss those crazy moments and sleepless nights.

    #1 – your kids are adorable
    #2 – life is cyclical – we have highs and lows and regardless, I have still enjoyed following your blog and look forward to all the new recipes, exercises and words of encouragement.
    #3 – I can’t decide if “and then we put our kids up for adoption” or “we go to Target” is my favorite line! LOL!!

    Blessings to you and your family from one of your faithful Canadian followers,

    Ps… We don’t have Target in Canada anymore and I’m a little jealous. ๐Ÿ˜‰
