What motivates you? Motherhood motivates me!

Happy Mothers's Day!


What motivates me? My TEENAGE DAUGHTERS! I thought having a baby was hard, but no. Then I thought running around chasing after toddlers was CRaZy hard, but no. Being a mom of two teenage girls who are completely different IS the biggest challenge of my life! Luckily, I have two pretty awesome kids that work hard every day but like any other family, we definitely have our moments. We argue, disagree and plot each others death. . .but we push through and love hard! I truly believe that working out keeps my mind sane and helps me make rational decisions. I am not perfect at this parenting-thing but I can sling a couple of weights around to make my day feel a little better.

It is a scientific fact, exercise releases stress and helps you stay positive. Running is also a fantastic way to think problems out that will actually workout in the long run! Also, exercise is a great way of sharing mental strength, endurance and perseverance because that is what running and exercise is all about! So, dust of those sneakers, start moving and GEAR UP for all those teenage years! You are going to either need them to either run away or run right through those crumb-snatchers! LOL!

ps. Wine does not help!

Have fun and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
