Hello LYL’ers!

Hope you enjoyed taking some time yesterday to implement a relaxing morning and evening routine just for YOU!

Here is the picture of the surprise bag I leave in Mackenzie crib after she falls asleep so I can enjoy an extra 30min of ME time before we start our morning together. This morning I enjoyed relaxing in bed for the extra 30min 🙂

In today’s surprise bag she found her favorite tea party set, wooden blocks (she pretends they are cookies), a pop-up book and stickers.

So what does your new morning and evening routine consist of?

Please share by posting a comment below. I’d LOVE to read your ideas 🙂

Today I want to share with you a very powerful Fall Resolution that has transformed me and so many busy women I know into a happier, less stressed, and more productive woman.

Today’s Fall Resolution is….

Commit to an Exercise Plan

Exercise is a major stress-buster and mood-lifter. Trust me I know how hard it can be to make time to work out with a busy schedule. But you have to TAKE the time.


If you work outside the home squeeze in a lunchtime workout or just get outside for a brisk walk. If you are a stay at home mom, do a workout while your little one is napping or take them outside for a stroller run with mommy.

Sign-up for a fitness program and ask a buddy to join you. The accountability of a workout partner has been very successful for many of our LYL clients.

Also playing on Resolution #1 I share yesterday many of our mommy clients have also found great success committing to an early morning or late evening workout. It may be tough getting started, but once you do, you’ll cherish this YOU TIME.

Here is a 20min, Full Body, no equipment needed, workout that I filmed a while back (that’s Mackenzie not Nathan in my belly…lol) that you can enjoy at home when you are short on time.  No Excuses! Enjoy! 🙂
