10 tips from a busy fit mama on finding time to exercise


As a busy fit mama & coach I hear this phrase quite often ‘how do you find the time to do it all?’. Great question!
Here’s the honest truth – do you ever really ‘find the time’ to do anything? No way! You MAKE the time, right?! Wanna go to the movies or on a hot date – you make the time for it. Wanna read a good book, or go watch the sunset – you make the time for it. Exercise and fitness follow the same rules. If you wanna rock that bikini, you make the time to work on that body of yours.

The Chicago Wedding

Every so often, if you take the time to step out of your shell and really get to know someone you discover just how cool they are and how much you love having them in your life.

Sometimes a girls just gotta hop on a plane and fly across the country to watch her friend get married to the man of her dreams. And oh, what a dream night it was. But before we get to the blessed event we have to get the wonderful city of CHICAGO.

I admit, I’ve only ever used Chicago as a stopping point between here and there. I’ve used and abused it’s fun people mover pathways to rush off to my next flight and never fully stopped to enjoy just how magnificent the city outside of those people moving hallways were. But not this time. This time I walked down those neon hallways and just kept walking all the way to the train and let that glorious train take me all the way to the Lakeview area.
