Happy Sunday everyone! Sorry that I’ve been a little quiet here…..I have been feeling a little “icky” since Friday night. It was a long day and I actually went to bed by 9:45 last night and slept through the time we needed to get up for church. I was beat—you know those weeks where you don’t get enough sleep and then one LONG day puts you over the edge? Well, I guess last week did it for me. I’m struggling with getting my workouts in and getting enough sleep sometimes. Another thing is my water intake has been lacking–it’s hard sometimes. I’m always the first to admit it…..it’s hard to do it all. I know some of you think I’m Superwoman and all (haha) but I’m completely and 100% normal, real and “mortal.” haha… I’m a busy hard working mom just like many of you.
Life happens. I, just like the rest of you, have to “make the time” and work really hard to get the results I have achieved and keep working hard to maintain them as well!! There is a common mentality that once you’ve achieved your goals or look the way you want to look, you are done. haha..I wish! That would be easy right? Well, I have found in my life that nothing worth having is easy. That’s okay too. Sometimes the “journey” is the best part. I want you to all know, you are NOT alone. We all have those times when things aren’t going the way we planned, life happens and then there are those times when you are straight killin’ it! Those moments are the ones I of course LOVE, but I also try to tell myself that there will be the days and weeks that we are more “lacking.”
I will admit, today I have been feeling a little down in the dumps today (gasp-Dani-not all cheery happy and energizer bunny’ish) because I leave in five days to go to a VERY exciting weekend with some of my favorite ladies in the US and Canada from the Mom Power Team and GORGO Magazine for a photo shoot and epic slumber party! haha…The really cool thing about GORGO is that this magazine is about real women, real advice, real everyday issues. It’s NOT about being perfect and killing it every single day. That is not realistic and neither is photoshop which is why we are all going to show you some realness — are you ready for that? Well, get ready my friends. http://www.gorgomag.com
I’m bummed that I’m not feeling at the top of my game. It’s been a crazy couple of months and while I’m not working out every day and killing it in the gym and doing my best in the kitchen, I’m doing my best for the circumstances I have going on right now. AND I’m trying to be 100% okay with that but yes, it’s hard to do that. I’m one of “those” who “achieves.” I smash goals right? Yes and no. Sometimes we have to know our limits AND we have to know that it is okay to not be 100% awesome all the time. Dang it. Sucks, but it’s true. Sometimes motivating you guys on a daily basis is what also helps me get pumped up to keep smashing goals!
I’m nursing a headache right now (sinus troubles lately) and missing a really fun leg workout I had planned with a friend (which I had to reschedule last night to today because I was having tummy troubles last night) booooo to missing a very much needed leg workout (in a real gym with one of my favorite girls.)
So, today…..my goals include feeling better, enjoying some family time, gaining some strength to get this house cleaned up, so some laundry, drink a TON of water, prep some food and I’m praying for a workout!
PUT ON YOUR “CAPE” AND BRING YOUR BEST TO THE TABLE EACH DAY! And at the end of the day, realize you are amazing and you rocked it. Now, if you didn’t try your best that day-use that as motivation to kick the next day’s butt. I’m proud of each and every one of you. We are all worth it, beautiful, special, unique and possess superhero qualities. Let those qualities shine through! YOU can do this and so can I. Let’s rock my super friends. We are our own special version of “Superwoman”, and “Superman” and we just need to “own” that version! Be you. Be Super and we can’t beat ourselves up when we don’t live up to that super awesomeness EVERYday. One day at at time, one step at a time.
