Yes, it is back to school time but is also time to get back to YOU!
Back to school means a lot of different things to many of us. So you are either on one side or the other! Absolutely thrilled that the kids are going back to school so you can get back to a normal (still crazy busy) schedule, Or you are kicking and screaming that summer vacation is coming to an end.
As a busy mom, I have moments of feeling both sides. The summer has been mostly care-free full of sun, camps for the kids, late nights, and treats!!
For me – this year- it’s the start of Grade 6 for my son, Grade 5 for my daughter, Grade 1 for my youngest daughter,piano lessons, gymnastics, swim lessons, Bible study,and more.
There are so many areas in life that I could come up with excuses as to why I don’t have time to exercise or eat healthy.
They are all legitimate excuses too…
*Sleep doesn’t come easy when your tossing and turning all night while the rain pelting our bedroom window and the wind howling.
*My kids are starting a new school with a new bus schedule, new friends and somedays the kids just aren’t doing as well as I had hoped they would with the upcoming changes.
*Having the kid’s home all summer has really thrown my schedule off.
*I don’t have time to eat healthy
*I don’t have money to eat healthy
*My husband is tired…
And the list goes on and on and on…
But here’s the deal – those are all just EXCUSES. And I’ve learned through round 1 on the 21 Day Fix Extreme that I can have EXCUSES or RESULTS – but not both!
I’m already anticipating busy weeknights with homework, after school practices, early weekend games and it’s super easy to start thinking there’s no way I’m going to be able to squeeze in some “ME” time – Even the busiest of moms should find time for themselves for at least 30 minutes a day and if you don’t already do this then this is something I challenge you to try!
It’s your time to get back to YOU!!
You work hard and deserve it.
We are just about to start Round #2 of the 21 Day Fix Extreme and if you remember from last time one of my “mistakes” was not being prepared! Not this round!
Today I wanted to share with you this delicious and simple smoothie recipe which might be the easiest and quickest yet. Perfect for after my workout!
Blend ingredients together until smooth. You’ll know when it is well blended when the strawberry seeds are all blended. (Because nobody likes strawberry seeds in their smoothie!)
That is all there is to this tasty strawberry blueberry banana smoothie! Just pour and enjoy!
- 1/2 Cup Frozen or Fresh Strawberries
- 1/4 of a medium Fresh Banana
- 1/4 Cup Frozen or Fresh Blueberries
