It’s like winter does not want to let go.

We were teased with a couple 60-70 degree days here in Louisville, KY but this came at the expense of temps dropping into the 20′s and now snow is expected this week too!



I am REALLY noticing the impact this is having on my mood and motivation…hence, a lack of emails and articles.

It’s crazy for next to Fall, Spring is my favorite season.

I have many reasons why I love spring.

This has been one Eventful Week …well more like two Months!!!

With several birthdays, a wrap up of the 10 Week Fall Transformation Challenge and the Kick off of FYM’s 6 Year Anniversary.…so much celebrating to be done – much of which has taken place behind the scenes in the forums of ClubFYM.


This is why I’d like to extend the Anniversary Celebration & Contest to the blog!

Here’s a recap on our Halloween adventure – which was rescheduled for Friday November 1st due to the threat of severe storms.

So happy it was for while the storms never did it, it was cold and windy and not the most pleasant night to be going door to door. Friday night however couldn’t have been more perfect!

It’s Hard to Get Results

Choose Your Hard 1024x882 Its Hard to Get Results

It’s Hard, I know. I get it.

If it feels as if things have been a struggle lately, I just wanted to let you know that I understand.

Yesterday after getting Tyler from school, the boys and I made a stop at Walmart to grab a rotisserie chicken (awesome for a quick dinner option) and check to see if there was anything else Alexander wanted to add to his Halloween costume – he’s been quite indecisive (Jake, Iron Man, Batman, police boy).

The Best Motivation Trick EVER!

back to school boys 736x1024 The Best Motivation Trick EVER!


It’s Week Two of Back to School for us and I can now say that we are finally in a good morning routine. As I shared before, this was a huge adjustment as Tyler’s new Middle School schedule (can’t believe he’s a 6th grader!)  has him getting up and ready nearly two hours earlier than elementary school!

Sure the first week was a bit rough…but we made it through and I can now admit that I like having to start my day a
couple hours earlier.

Since school has now started up for many other families, I’ve been getting several requests for help that go a little
something like this….

“Holly, help! School started and now I am losing motivation!
Please kick
start me again!”

Does this sound like you?

Tyler on Time Management for Busy Moms

This week marks the start of “Back to School” season for our family.

Still cannot get overt the fact that Tyler is going into Middle School. Our morning routine is going to completely change as Tyler’s get up and get ready schedule will shift to almost 2 hours earlier. To help make this adjustment we have spent the past week waking up about 5 – 10 minutes earlier.
