Accountability creates Actions

Happy Holidays!

It’s almost New Years, the time of year where everyone feels the need to ‘change’. This year, let’s forget about resolutions. Instead, let’s set realistic goals and develop a plan to make them happen. Want to know the number one reason a person abandons their resolutions? Lack of planning and accountability.

Let me tell you a story about when I first learned the importance of accountability when it comes to exercise. Almost 10 years ago when I was a young, fresh, personal trainer I got a job at a cute boutique gym by my house in Ontario, Canada. This gym was known for providing excellent personal training services, and one of the perks of the job was that I got to train with another experienced trainer myself.

Of course I was super pumped… this was perfect! I was going to be lean and sculpted while learning everything I could to pass on to my own clients. So I chose my trainer and was all ready to start, until he said, “the only time I have is 7am. Does that work?” Seven AM?! At 19 years old (yes, I was so young!), I was a full time student during the day, personal trainer in the evenings, and bartender on the weekends…the last thing I wanted to do was get to the gym at 7 am to workout. But this was my chance, and it was free, so I figured I would give it a shot.

I was there at 7 am 3x a week for three months straight. I never slept in and never missed a session because I knew my coworker would be there waiting for me and he would be super disappointed if I didn’t show. I just couldn’t let him down.

At the end of the three months I a) got in wicked shape b) almost became a morning person and c) felt super proud of myself for going outside of my comfort zone and pushing myself to the next level.

Moral of the story is, ACCOUNTABILITY is KEY to sticking with a new goal. Even people in the business (like myself) require motivation and commitment to continue a program and not just give up and go back to our old ways. How many workout programs have you started and never finished? Or maybe you have workout DVDs sitting there collecting dust, or a deflated exercise ball in the corner.

That is why my system is different. I provide one on one support with the affordability and convenience of a home program. The frequent check-ins and personalized approach help motivate and encourage my clients to succeed and never give up. My success rate is through the roof, which is why I created the Fit Mama January Challenge. I want to help motivate others to start the year off right, and see their goals through to the end. Just give me 31 days. I will help you transform your body and mind to become a better, healthier, and stronger you.

Christmas Struggles of A Fit Mama

I am a self proclaimed Fit Mama. Yes, I workout. Yes, I eat healthy. Yes, I post a lot on Instagram. No, I am definitely not the perfect Pinterest mom.

Holiday Expectations are Rough

Holidays are such a fun time of year, but they can also bring loads of stress. Last year, my daughter was only 2 months old at Christmas, so we were in pure survival mode — and that was okay. I felt like everyone understood the generic Christmas presents and why our house didn’t look like a winter wonderland.

Stress Management

Today, someone asked me if I was stressed. This caused me to stop and think for a moment, do I have stress? I associate stress with major life events; school, exams, money problems, job hunting, breakups and anything else equally disruptive. Since I thankfully am not dealing with any of these things at the moment, how could I possibly be stressed? But yet, I still wanted to answer yes to this question and wasn’t quite sure why.  It is possible that we live in a world that is so chronically stressed out that we don’t even notice?

That’s huge! Grab one while they are still on sale. Use Code THANKFUL25, includes FREE shipping.

I have been obsessing over these designer leather diaper bags lately.
