It’s been a while, huh? My reason is pretty great… this sweet boy graced us with his presence at the end of June. His name is Caleb Mason and he is absolutely amazing. My pregnancy went well. I had the normal aches and pains, worked out consistently with my Camp Gladiator peeps until about 21-ish weeks then decided to rest and focus on what was next for me.
I’m excited to get back on track. I’m proof that it’s okay to take a step back and re-evaluate life, which includes what you’re currently doing and what you want to do. And not feel bad about it!
Now, I’ll be honest, am I kicking myself for not documenting every single #fitmom workout and allowing you to follow my preggo journey?
Maybe a little.
However, I’ve come to terms with it and taking the time to just be and focus on myself and those closest to me was the best thing.
Emotionally, it’s been an interesting few months but I’m excited for this season of my life. Everything happens for a reason. I have a husband who is encouraging and supportive, 3 gorgeous boys who drive me nuts (figuratively and literally), amazing family and friends and a sincere want to positively change the lives of others through fitness and overall health/wellness. Now I get to embark on my own journey, which involves getting back to my pre-pregnancy level of fitness and beyond!! I see this blog evolving eventually. Into what? I’m not sure, but I’m excited to share it with you.
Happy Friday! The first week of 2016 is coming to an end! Whoop whoop! Did you accomplish your goals? If no, you suck! 🙊 Just kidding. Hop back on the train, stop mopin’ around and be encouraged.
I have a no miss training this Saturday the 9th so I will not be running the free Saturday workout. The good news is that I have a great full body workout that you can do on you own. Make sure to time yourself. After you’ve completed the workout, post a selfie on the Jumpstart With LG Facebook page along with how long it took you to complete. I’ll have a special gift for you at the January 16th 8am workout! Out of town? You can play too!
This morning we had our first workout of the year! It was wet. It was rainy. It was cold. Yet, these ladies committed and showed up! So many people make “resolutions” with intentions of sticking to them every, single, year. They go into the New Year chanting “this will be my year ” or “this year I’m gonna do the dang thang”, knowing full well they aren’t about to jack.
I can go on and on with theories about what they can do to stick to the plan they made, but I truly believe this one thing can be life changing.
👉THINK OF YOUR WORKOUTS AS AN IMPORTANT MEETING WITH YOURSELF. 👈
I know. I know. You’re thinking, Lauren…why the heck would I want to do that? If I did that, I may actually follow through because I’ve now made my workouts a priority instead of an option. (Who’d a thunk?)
You go to work. You go to your doctor’s appointments (You better). You attend important functions within your life. Why not resolve to treat that 30 minute or hour workout time like a meeting you can’t afford to miss? Bosses don’t cancel. This is day 2 of 2016. We all get the same 24 hours. Remember that.
Head over to my Facebook page to see videos and pictures of today’s workout. I’ll have giveaways in the coming weeks. Make sure you’re set up to receive notifications. I don’t want you to miss out!
