Hi guys! I'm Samantha - some of you I've been friends with for years, so this is old news BUT a ton of you are new so hiiiiii!! I'm a ridiculously normal girl and yet very different at the same time. I feel like I get this rep of being the crazy girl who likes to just work out 24/7. The truth is though, it has had an insanely positive impact on my life - weight, women's health issues, faith and mindset. I started getting into working out at home as a way to lose the baby weight and it took on this whole life of it's own and now it's my job.
So this is where I've been working out lately - in my 5 year old's room and this is usually what I look like. #hotmessexpress
I almost always work out early in the morning and I usually just roll on out into this room. I own cute work out clothes but I almost always go with my old favorites. I'm not anti-gym at all. I live in the country, and it's the driving time combined with my husband's work schedule that make that not an option for me on a regular basis. Second to that - 4 kids, sports in two different school districts fills up my time. Even working out from home, I often get up at 5 am to fit it in.
My kids and husband are decent when it comes to healthy eating, but only if I don't tell them it's healthy. By now it's just this thing that mom does and they've learned to go along with it. My husband is better with healthy eating than my kids, but even that had a learning curve. I do cook almost every day, which I don't mind doing. I stream all my work outs from my fire stick, laptop or phone. If my kids toys are all over that day, I just move on over to a different room.
So let's recap = I don't have a fancy home gym or the expensive yoga apparel. I don't have it all together and I'll be forever trying to get my kids on board. But I'm doing it and it's working -I'm living proof. I've lost 25 lbs, (over 30 inches total!!) and I've kept it off for two years.
Why in the world did I share all of that with you? Because If I can do this, YOU can do this.
New Years is coming. I know so many of you will be making resolutions, goals, and wanting to finally make that change that will STICK.
Message me - I'm your girl.
