Being a stay at home mom is amazing! We get to see our children grow up, go to all of their games and practices and get hugs and snuggles in the middle of the day!!
We are sooo lucky, right???
Lol, it’s not that simple!!
Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change being an at home mom for anything, BUT…..
We clean bums and noses all day
Wipe up spill after spill
We’re always stepping in something sticky, finding food in places where there just shouldn’t be food and yelling things like “get your mouth off the toilet!”
For once, I would love to go to the bathroom alone. Or shower, alone. Or do anything alone, actually.
I know we are blessed. But, being so blessed comes with some not so great benefits.
We are around food all day long! The food our kids like and can somehow eat 2 bites of and leave the rest. Of course we can’t let it go to waist, so we eat it. A handful of fish crackers here, the crust from the pb&j there. Oh, you didn’t want that half of your grilled cheese? No worries, mom will eat it.
Now, don’t get me started on finding time to exercise!! What?? Get up at 4:30 am to run on the treadmill in my gloomy basement?? Um, no thanks. I’m sorry, I just can’t! Am I alone here??
My alarm clock is my 3 year old and by the time I’m done putting all 3 kids to bed, the only exercise I want is the bicep curl of a glass of wine coming up to my lips!
“But you’re a Health & Fitness Coach!” I know, I know. But I’m a mom and a wife first. I struggled with all of that above for years and years. I’ve never been “thin” I’ve struggled with those 10-20 lbs my whole life, until I was invited to a “CHALLENGE GROUP”!
A simple little challenge group changed the course of my life. No joke.

I Love this! I am a stay at home mother of 3 and my best friend is a working mother of 2 with a very high powered job that includes lots of hours and travel. We have a great relationship because we appreciate each other’s “job’s”. We don’t judge each other, we learn from each other. This is a great article!
