I hope Day 1 is going well for you. We’ve gotten some GREAT responses via email, and on the blog about how awesome Day 1 has been. Here’s an example…
Please don’t skip this step. Day 1 is important. If you decided you don’t want to do this step for one negative reason or another, you are already proving my point, that your negativity is stopping you from becoming better. You can do this!
Here’s one more testimonial from today from Jessica P.
As you see ladies today’s challenge is a good thing. Tomorrow it only gets better!!!
Before the next challenge take a few minutes to check out this short video post from Byron Davis. Byron was a world class swimmer (former world record holder), is an Ironman, speaker, author, and life coach. He inspires me daily to live an epic life, and I hope he inspires you too. Every week you’ll get a midweek motivation from Byron to help inspire you to keep going!
For more information about Geocaching click here. It’s a great thing to do with your kids. Byron called it Geo Tracking on the video, but it’s geocahing. Also the challenge is 28 days, not 21. A great way to sneak in some family fun while exercising at the same time.
Thanks ladies for commenting! We all feel part of a community when you do. Keep them coming!

Being a fit, happy, healthy mom really sets the whole foundation for you and your kids.
I think sometimes we get so busy making sure that everyone else is taken care of that we put ourselves last on the list. I have certain things that I do every day that to me are “non-negotiable” meaning someone can’t talk me out of doing these things because I know that if I am not full I will have nothing to give to anyone else.
It is not just about being physically fit that keeps us going but also about being emotionally fit.
Emotional fitness is a “muscle” that also needs to be developed so when you are having a tough day everything else seems effortless.
I start my day with a few “I AM” statements:
I am Loving
I am honest
I am fit
I am sexy
I am an awesome mom
I am playful
I am healthy
I am financially fit
I am creative and on and on…
Then I have my code of conduct:
I will stay true to myself
I will help those who want to be helped
I will appreciate something in nature
I finish by saying my morning prayers
I encourage you to create your own “I am” statements not just for you but to help your kids as well.
You will notice you are truly FIT for the day!
