Expressing Motherhood Challenge

Apparently when Shannon and I decided to challenge ourselves, over wine, we didn’t work out the details. Go figure.

She’s starting tomorrow with her 30 Day  regime.

I started making  a change yesterday. We are both giving ourselves different rules. I tend to follow more of a French standard. Except I’m taking out the alcohol for 30 days :/

Ironically enough I went to my acupuncturist today and told him what I was doing he said, “Be careful, when you set the bar too high you put pressure on yourself and feel frustrated if you fail.”

I really love that guy.

So already I’m thinking, do I need to make an amendment? Should I allow myself wine on the weekends?

But for now I’m still sticking to no wine tonight, I exercised again today and I’m already feeling a little less bloated. So there’s that.

Anyways, if you want to be a part of the #exmochallenge you can make it what you want. Just know you have a group of supportive moms who have got your back.

I’d also love to hear who inspires you to be fit.

Funny enough I started following a fit mom from Australia called Little Miss Muscles. When her Instagram pics pop up in my feed sometimes I feel like whoever is standing behind me in the grocer store must think I’m casually looking at porn at Trader Joes. She’s a mom who used to eat and drink a lot and has two young kids and is one fit mom. I really have enjoyed seeing the drinks she makes in her vitamix. She’s also on Facebook.

That's Little Miss Muscles.

So hop on board. Maybe this will continue beyond a month. Use #exmochallenge to tag yourself.
