You have found the Motivated Mama, congrats and yay! This means I am achieving another one of my lofty goals! Why the Motivated Mama? Well, here it is….I cringe as I put it out in the universe…I will be 42 this year. Yes 42. I used to think this was ancient. I am a mom of five, a self employed business owner and a wife. The past few years have been a real wake up call for me. Call it a mid-life crisis, call it a transition, call it crazy…the fact is, the thought of FORTY was a reality bite in the butt of this mama. I put up a good front. Pretended to have it all together. However, my weight, my diet, my energy, my health (both mental and physical) and my total well-being was being destroyed on a daily basis. In the past two years, this has all changed. With the help of my very dear friend Kayla, I was introduced to a brand of products called Advocare. They have literally helped me transform my life. I have changed the way my family eats, changed my focus, changed my priorities and health and found my motivation. My hope for this blog is to offer a little daily encouragement, a cyber hug to my fellow moms, a pat on the back and some super helpful content to make your life a little happier, healthier and more fun to live and appreciate. Thank you for taking the time to visit. Please feel free to comment and share your inspiring ideas, recipes and good thoughts!
