Good Monday morning friend!

How was your weekend? We both enjoyed a different kind of weekend. Michelle was home with Madison as I (Lori) went out of town. This was my second time leaving Madison. To all my moms out there does it get any easier? I thought about her every minute and missed her so much. I was at a wedding in Asheville while Michelle took care of Madison. They had a great time bonding. But Michelle quickly realized how hard it is to be a single parent. So hats off to all the single parents out there. You’re are truly inspirational!

As a busy mom running a blog, online business, and taking care of my family I am always looking for simple effective workouts. Normally I prefer under 20-minute workouts, but every now and then I challenge myself with longer ones.

This purely training workout is a time challenge so your time will be different than mine. Let us know your time below. This took us about 21 minutes.

I choose to see the good in everything mantra.

Mantra for today’s workout is – I choose to see the good in everything.

How many times do you catch yourself being negative or judging too quickly?? Ya, we are all guilty.

When we start to train our mind to see the good, the positive our world will start to shift. It takes practice as the world is always challenging us.  Start to be more mindful of your thoughts and ask yourself, is this thought serving me?

See you at the next workout. Thanks for the support!! Never miss a workout.

Lori and Michelle
