I switched my workout time today from late evening to morning. This gave me the opportunity to talk to Doodlebug about why mommy makes time to exercise.

As a toddler she may not always understand why this special time is important. So, I break it down and tell her mommy exercises so I feel better.  And I exercise so I’m able to spend much more time with her, sister & Dada in the future.

She still tells me “no” sometimes. But I workout anyway.

And, 9 times out of ten, she joins in at some point.



You know, I originally started my fitness journey for me.  But by focusing on me, I am actually becoming the wife, mother, and woman I want my daughters to be.

So sometimes changing up my routine is a good thing!  When I workout at night, they are always in the bed.  But when I switch to a daytime workout, they always see me.

By doing this I am showing my girls growth, imperfection, and self-worth.  All which are EXTREMELY important.

And if I don’t show my daughters the way, who will?



There’s a saying,

                                 “Be The Good You Want To See In The World”

This could not be more true when it comes to raising our children.

I want to challenge you to be that example for your family, friend….or stranger!

How will you will you lead?

Are you doing this already?
