I’m a mom to a 6-year old daughter and 2-year old son. I used to be in pretty good shape. I ran cross country and track in high school and continued running through my mid-20s. After having kids, fitness definitely went by the wayside. I haven’t ever been able to stick with a workout routine. Our family recently moved across the country for my husband to go back to school. I went from working full-time to staying home with my kids full time to help everyone transition to our new home and town. It has definitely been a tough adjustment, and I have struggled to find a new routine and support system.
Your 30 Day Core challenge was exactly what I needed to jump-start my fitness goals and get my routine back on track. Even though it was sometimes hard to fit the workouts in, I always felt so much better after working out. I always wanted to be able to ‘check in’ using Instagram and keep up with everyone else. I felt like the other moms were keeping me accountable, and I didn’t want to fall behind. Even though I don’t know any of them personally, I felt like I got to know them through their posts and pictures. In the end (and I’ve heard Lindsay say this on numerous occasions!), it’s not about the number on the scale; it’s about feeling good about yourself and being a better mom. I feel like sticking with a workout routine is a great example to set for my kids, and I hope they enjoy being active and fit like I do!
