Friday Freebie: Fitness tracker

Keeping track of your goals increases your chances of succeeding with your fitness goals. Use this tracker to help you do just that! I prefer these paper versions so I don’t get distracted by my phone! =)

I notice that I am also less likely to add a daily indulgence when I have to write it down. This is where the Fitness tracker freebie comes in!

A new “fitness tracker” freebie to help you stay in shape:

Earlier this week I wrote a post suggesting several ways to try to stay in shape as a homeschooling and/or work at home mom.  It’s tough to fit it all in for sure, but another thing that helps is adding a fitness/food diary.
As Kristen Kirkpatrick mentions in her fitness article, we can sometimes be fooling ourselves with how much we are eating. We are on the go and tend to forget what we ate and when.  Dessert time rolls around and we think, “I’ve been pretty good!”  We may actually be forgetting the extra calories we treated ourselves to at lunch.

Fitness for homeschool moms

So what do you do with all your free time as a homeschool mom?

Ha!  I know, I am laughing at that too.😉  I had no idea how large a chunk of my time homeschooling would eat up.  I pictured playing a few videos for my kids and then cutting them loose to scribble away on their papers while I knocked out dishes.  Right…  How do we fit in fitness for homeschool moms?!
Having fibromyalgia, means I’m in some major pain if I don’t exercise regularly.  When the reality of homeschool hit hard, it was the first thing to go.  That couldn’t last without me crumbling physically.  If you’ve homeschooled for any decent amount of time, I am sure you realize how hard it is to pour from an empty cup!

10 Things I wish I knew as New Special Needs Mom

When the diagnosis comes, and your world changes… 

I’ve been there too as a new special needs mom.  Even though I had a sense of certainty that my son would have Autism, when he was born I allowed a little part of myself to hope that I was just overthinking things. Nagging little red flags that made me wonder continued to be dismissed.  However, the feeling thoroughly twisting my insides never dissipated.  Many google searches later, when my son was 13 months old, I called my mom.
