I just finished my one month free trial to Fitwells for Women. You can read all about my first week here. I had an amazing month. I feel better about myself, my body looks and feels better, is more toned, leaner and muscular. I have more energy and I feel better about myself. I know that I wrote this twice, back to back, but it’s important. I was feeling pretty crappy about myself at the end of the Summer. I was lethargic, had indigestion issues, and felt really bloated. After my first week of working out, I was already feeling better.
Here’s the thing, it’s so hard to get motivated to get back into shape, but it’s not an option, it’s mandatory!!!!! It should be regarded the same as eating and breathing. We moms, especially, find a myriad of excuses, mainly surrounding our children, of why we don’t have time to look after ourselves. I’m here to tell you that if you don’t take care of yourself, no one else will!!!!!!!! I agree that it’s hard to find the time to workout, between school runs, breastfeeding, house maintaining, work and life, but it can be done. It must be done!!!!!!
This is why I haven’t blogged much this past month. I’ve changed my focus on getting myself emotionally, physically and spiritually healthier!!!!! I HAD TO!!!! I HAVE TO!!!! It was all starting to catch up to me. I was irritable, negative, exhausted and I wasn’t liking where I was heading. This past month has been a game changer for me. I finally put myself first. I told my son that he is coming with Mama to workout and that he is going to play with other kids in childminding. We went in, the ladies were super friendly and welcoming and he fit right in. He even was excited to know that we were coming back. I know that it may not be the same easy experience for yourself, but you need to do it. I see little babies in there. I don’t know if I could leave my newborn in there, but I’m impressed with those moms who could. For 1 hour, I gave my body, mind and soul the TLC it needed. I’m so focused on looking after everyone else (both at work and at home) that I’ve really neglected me.
What I enjoy about Fitwells for Women is that there are women in all different shapes and at different fitness levels. No one makes you feel bad if you can’t do an exercise. There are a few that I can’t do, because of my back, and I let the instructor know and she gives me something else to do. No one makes you feel bad for not being able to do an exercise. It’s about your fitness level and how comfortable you are. It’s also about sweating your ass off and feeling amazing afterwards. It’s about looking at the clock and seeing that you did it!!!! You just finished an one hour long intense class. You did it!!!!!!
So ladies join me and my fellow bloggers for this amazing 3 month membership giveaway to Fitwells for Women. There’s no time like the present to start. How can we expect our kids to be healthy if we aren’t ?!?!?!?! We have to lead by example. My son is proud of me and he tells me that. It makes me feel good and I like that he sees that I’m working hard to stay healthy. I want to stay healthy for myself, for him and for my husband. I want to be around for many years to come.
I really hope to see some of you ladies there. If you see me, come and say hi. I would love to see other moms out there with me busting their asses off and feeling empowered and good about ourselves!!!!
