I have a confession...

Monday, February 18, 2013


This is something that has been hard enough to admit to myself let alone to share with all of you.

For the past 3-4 weeks I have been in a huge rut, funk, whatever you want to call it.

I have been neglecting pretty much everything in my life.

When the kiddos wake up in the morning I get them set up with toys and something to eat and then I have been going back to bed and not waking up till about 10AM and sometimes even 11:00!!

Unfortunately I'm not sure why I am in a funk, but I know that I want out!

I am the only person who can change how I feel and I am starting today!

I lost 12 pounds last summer and I have now gained it all back and then some.

I know that exercise will help me feel better and I just have to really kick myself in the butt to get it done.

So I decided I will be doing a weekly post called: "Motivated Mondays" where I will be sharing my tips on what I am doing to stay happy and healthy!

I would love to hear all of your suggestions as well.

I sat down yesterday and thought about what really gets my butt in gear and the first thing that popped into my head... MUSIC!

If you are like me, great music really helps to get your butt into gear and start working out. Here is an awesome list of 100 songs that should help.

Music also helped me to get out of bed this morning, if you set whatever alarm you have to go off with your favorite upbeat music.

Music affects our mind and body in a positive way! It can change your mood, give you energy, and motivate you to reach higher.

Play those tunes in the morning that remind you of your goals and why you're doing this in the first place!

I hope you will join me on Monday's (and everyday) to stay on track with your goals!


About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
