Back at IT!! Cheers to a fabulous WEEK!!

Today is Monday and although most see Monday as an evil day because it is the start of their work week I am thrilled for today. I had a new Challenge group start their Day 1 today, tomorrow is Day 30 for another group, tomorrow is also Day 30 for my own personal journey, I have a huge goal that has a deadline for Wednesday and I WILL make it, and there is so much more happening in the second half of the week.  I love to be excited to work each day and yet I get to do it all while staying home with my children.  My husband and I always said before we even had kids that we wanted one of us to always be home with the kids.  He had his turn and now it is mine and let me tell you I think I am one lucky lady.  I am having the time of my life.  Yes, I have my days where I feel like I am going to rip my hair

out but I also have more days that I feel so overwhelmed with joy that we can be here day in and day out for our kids.  I am not saying those parents that choose to not stay home with their kids are wrong or are also not in the right - what I am saying is this is what my husband and I planned on doing for our children and I am thankful that we can.




Another side to being at home is that I am able to have a bit of Adult Freedom for a few hours here and there everyday.  How? I am a BeachBody Coach and so I get to help others achieve their own health and fitness goals.  I am not a fitness expert or a nutritionist but I am someone who has gone through my own journey, which I am still continuing,  AND I enjoy helping others.  I have learned so much this past year and I continue to learn (another bonus - I am like a sponge, always have been...love, love, love learning!!).




Every wondered why I became a BeachBody coach, well here is my reasoning...



So not only am I am Mom, BeachBody Coach, but I am also a home maker and wife so what does that mean?  I help take care of our home and our family.  One of my duties is I do all the grocery shopping, cooking, and the best way I can provide healthy meals for myself and my family is to create a meal plan each week for us.  Now most of the time the meal plan I post is very specific for ME but I do also create meal plans for my kids (and slowly working on my husband!).  We all eat the same snacks, and dinners.  Where we currently differ is on breakfasts and lunches.  

Here is my meal plan for the week:


My days are always interesting and I can honestly say there is never a dull moment.  I am always looking for new ways to do things better so if you have any tips, experiences to share please share away.  
I would love to hear from you!! 

Also if you are interested in learning more about what I do or how to meal plan for your family 


Now is the time to learn how to
Live a Fit, Happy, and Healthy life
and WE will do it 
TOGETHER!!!!
