It was just over a week ago that I was learning and surrounded by positive people and motivation. I miss it.
As I said in my previous post, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to go for financial reasons but I set aside my worries and went! As a mom, we tend to put everyone before us which is great but sometimes we forget about ourselves. I don’t know how many times I wanted something but put it on the back burner because financial or family obligations didn’t allow it. Even when it’s something I know would benefit my business. I realized that even if the timing isn’t right, investing in yourself can be one of the best things you can do for you and your family.
As a personal trainer, I work with moms who are in the same boat. Putting their fitness goals on the back burner. I do admire those moms who work full-time and take of their families but sometimes I see them burnt out and unhappy with their fitness results. Why? Because it’s not made a priority. When I see them putting their fitness first, they are much happier. When they are happy with themselves, they are able to be better wives, moms, friends, employees, etc.
Long story short, I am so happy with the decision I made to attend IDEA world blogfest. It was exactly what I needed. Just at the right time. I felt like we were given the special treatment. From awesome classes like yoga and piyo to inspirational speakers to all the freebies we received. Let me show you what I got.

Since I like to wear pink I made sure to sit at a table with this one 🙂 I look forward to wearing the cute black visor and headband. Continue reading
