Time Management & Mom Life

If I am being completely honest, I suck at time management. I have brought so many planners to not use them at all. I even attempted to download a calendar on my phone, but it was still a fail.

If you throw in one extremely active toddler that has a mind of their own, well, terrible fail.

This year, I have made it my top priority to manage my time a lot better, and I feel like I have gotten a little bit better. With the COVID-19 pandemic happening, Chlo will no longer be attending daycare, so we’re back to square one.

On a side note, she only attended daycare for legit three days before the crisis happened. 

Anywho, my daughter will always be my top priority, no matter what I am doing in life. However, I am finding that with me building a business and trying to stay sane, I am missing important moments with her.

Chlo, like any child, wants all of their parent’s attention. However, sometimes that’s just not possible. In my case, I noticed that sometimes I am not 100% present with her. For example, when she’s coloring in her book. I’m physically in her room with her and watching her from the side of my eye, but I am mentally creating content for my IG page or creating a promotion to attract more people. Coloring may be simple, but it is a time to bond with her.

My child will only remain little for so long. Yes, I am building a company that will help her in the long haul. However, she is just as important, if not more important than my company. I decided to become more proactive about managing my time and planning my days, so I can enjoy those simple moments with my kid.

What about you!?

How are your time management skills and being a mother?

14 Day Fitness Challenge

If you’re not following me on IG, I highly recommend that you do so. 

I launched my very own fitness challenge on Saturday, May 2, 2020. In addition to the challenge, I created exercises that would help to strengthen your core, legs, booty, and calves. Along with that, I highlighted three videos I wanted to workout to. As I am a Strong by Nation instructor and personal trainer, one of the videos is a Strong 20-minute video. The other two videos are by my favorite fit mom Kieara LaShae.

Lastly, for this challenge, I will be selecting two people with the best results. They have the opportunity to win a cash prize or a gift card from me. So, if you would like to enter the contest, you have until Tuesday, May 5, 2020 to send your before pictures to embracetheejourney@gmail.com. Be sure to follow my fitness page on IG @Fitness_with_Chels_And_Chlo and #EmbraceTheeJourney. 

Just an FYI, I go live Monday-Friday at 8 a.m to workout as well. This way, I am physically doing the challenge with you. In addition to that, I am sharing what I am eating throughout the day and some fun facts about nutrition.

So, I hope you join my challenge!

Check out my fitness calendar below to stay on schedule, just in case you cannot join me live 🙂
