Why I do this......

I thought I would do a little post about why I am so determined to get fit and healthy. The main reason is because I want to be an example to my children and see my children have children. See 11 years ago on January 16 I lost my mom. She died of congestive heart failure. That was the main factor and the secondary factor was pancreatic cancer. She also was in renal failure and had 2 toes and part of her foot amputated as the results of non healing wound from her out of control diabetes. She was only 54! I was 22 and had no mom and she died pretty much in my 19 year old brothers arms. I have decided I don't want that to be me and my children. I miss her so much still 11 years later. She was not physically there see me get married or the birth of my children. I like to think she is was there with me those days and may other days. I like to think of her as our guardian angel. that she is always looking down at us and protecting us. So I have decided I need to put me first when it comes to getting healthy. So we are eating cleaner and training meaner! I want my kids to see my and my husband be the better example. I also want to show others with crazy busy lived you can fit time in to be healthier so I joined Beachbody so I could coach others! Thanks for stopping by and reading my ramblings today!

Interruptions have been the story of my life the past few weeks. Between Ty being home from school, Matt being off work and dad obsessing about the world cup. Its been rough and yesterday was the worst day for them. I could not give 100% to my workout yesterday because there were so many interruptions from my one of my kids and my dad. When I start a workout I try to settle them first so I can have 30 mins to focus of the workout. Well to that didn't happen yesterday and I felt my motivation dwindle with every new demand and me having to hit pause. But I keep moving forward through the workout and finished. But am still haven't been able to shake that workout off. I am still frustrated and want a do over. I know I can take it back and I should be proud that I finished. Today is a new day and I will 100% to my workout today!
