Yes these are my abs….SO WHAT!

I am 35 years old. 

I have two daughters. They are 12 and 7. 

I have abs. 

Yes, I said it out loud. Hate me if you want…but its true. And what that proves, is that its possible. I work for a living. I work a lot. I travel a lot with my job. I make healthy eating a priority and make fitness a priority too. I don’t let excuses stop me. When I had my first daughter I vowed I would not be “one of those” women…you know, the ones who said they “just had a kid” when in all actuality they just dropped them off for their first day of college. You and I are no different. We have the same opportunities in front of us. So what are you going to do in 2014 to uncover your abs (we all have them)

1. Take a before picture of yourself and then find a picture of what you aspire to be. Put them side by side and make that the screen saver on your phone. This will be your daily reminder so you pick up the kale and put down the donut! 

2. Find a workout regimen. Whether its you taking classes at your local gym, working with a trainer, or doing an at home program like INSANITY (you can find out more information from me on that by emailing me at danielle@healthyhousewives.com).

3. EAT LESS CRAP! If there is one thing I require of all my clients and customers its to read this book IT STARTS WITH FOOD. You can download it to your iPad or tablet by ordering it…here is more information on how to order it http://amzn.to/1cBc3sa

4. Go to bed early…sleep is probably the area where EVERYONE can improve upon! Image

Confessions of a slacker!

Hey HH fans, Danielle here. And I have a confession to make…I am a closet slacker. WHAT?! The woman who does it all? YES! But not intentionally! I missed a few weeks blogging here on our HH blog, and then it turned into habit for me to NOT blog, until Marzia reminded me, um, hey, Danielle, where is your blog. So, there I said it…you heard it here first. I AM NOT PERFECT. Let’s talk a little bit more about that. 

You might follow my journey here, or you might also follow me on my own Facebook page, http://facebook.com/fitandfunkywithdanielle. You see me as the girl with the abs or the girl who works out on stage with Shaun T. You see me as the INSANITY Master Trainer who films the INSANITY rounds and travels the country certifying people. You see me as the Beachbody Coach who ranked #5 in the company and quit her teaching job all while being the mother of two girls. You see my Instagram workout videos and think…wow, she is so perfect and that comes so easy and, and and and…. I know…I get messages from you all the time. But I am here to tell you, yet again, I am not perfect. It isn’t always easy. My hair isn’t always brushed. Sometimes I don’t shower all day after a workout. I burn dinner, and yell at people in traffic who drive too slow. My laundry isn’t always done, my bed isn’t always made, and sometimes I choose the drive through over a home cooked meal for my children. Sometimes I modify my workouts, or even skip one. Sometimes I eat a brownie or three, and sometimes I have a glass of wine. I have fat days, bad hair days, and days where I do not feel successful. 

 

But guess what….life isn’t about perfection its about balance. Its about doing what you love and loving what you do. Its about knowing that there is no such thing as perfect. Its knowing that when you kiss your kids good night and tell them you love them, that you mean it, and they know it. Its about knowing that you did your best because your best is all you can do. Its about knowing when to say I am sorry and when to take ownership for slacking. When Marzia asked me about the blog, I didn’t make up a half truth. I was honest….I told her, hey I forgot. And I am sorry. And moving forward I will be better. Gosh, why can’t it always be that simple? But it can be….let’s practice that. 

I WILL BE BETTER

Because each day is a chance to get things right, do them better, and be the best you that you can be. 

Cheers to 2014…the year in which WE WILL BE BETTER! Image

Get Ready to DIG DEEPER

Hey Danielle here!

As you may or may not know outside of my role with the Healthy Housewives I work for Shaun T, the creator of INSANITY. I am so excited as we are hosting a big event in Dallas this Saturday called Shauntervention. Its unlike any event we have ever done before, and I am even more excited because the Healthy Housewives will be there as a sponsor for the event. So, what exactly is Shauntervention?

“I wanted a way to connect with you on a deeper level—to take all the inspiring energy I feel from you and help you DIG
DEEPER beyond the workouts, down into your soul. So, the ShaunTourage and I created a live Shaun T experience like nothing before. After many months in the making, on September 14, 2013, we proudly unveil to you SHAUNTERVENTION, a day to FIND YOUR LIFE.”–Shaun T

There is still time to register for this epic day. And, don’t forget to watch for Shaun on Good Morning Texas this Friday the 13th. Head on over to http://shauntervention.com
