Is Busy Really Busy?

Fitness and Nutrition are so important to your health, and the most common thing we hear from folks who are wanting to start a fitness program and clean up their eating is they are too busy and just don’t have the time. We all said , “if I had a personal chef make all my meals for me I could eat healthy too” or “all the movie stars have personal trainers that’s why they are so in shape and “they don’t work or they don’t have kids”

One of our main missions at BMF, is to help those who feel like they are too busy to invest in themselves. People just like us! We know firsthand how busy people are, because we are just as busy too.

I have worked in corporate America for almost 16 years and am a full time mom (get that did not say part time, if you have a family and children nothing is ever part time even if you work!) I commute into my corporate office everyday and when I am not in the corporate office, I am on the road traveling. When I am not working, I am Mom and Wife, which means I am carpooling or attending school events soccer, basketball, volleyball, Girl Scouts, doing homework, washing clothes, cleaning dishes…and the list goes on and on.

I get busy, but I have also made a commitment to get workouts in and eat the right foods for my body. I won’t lie, you have to plan your day and your meals and make a effort. It does not just happen.

We thought it would be helpful to share a glimpse into our days and how we fit in our foods and workouts given our busy schedules.

Our days can vary quite a bit dependent on our Hubby’s, Kiddos and Work schedules, but in general this helps to show how jam packed weeks and weekends can be. Somehow, someway we fit it all in!
