I've got another guest post for you all today & I couldn't be more excited! I found these chicas on instagram not too long ago and knew we would be fast friends. I loved what they were presenting and I loved that it seemed 'real life' (I know you know what I mean by that! No one wants a perfectly staged everything).

Okie Fit Chicks Guide on Juggling Fitness & Family
We don't claim to be fitness experts, just a couple of busy mommas doing our best to live a fit lifestyle and inspire other momma’s along the way. We know first hand that busy mommas don’t always have the luxury of time to spend an hour or more in the gym, so we’ve compiled a few of our favorite tips and “go-to tricks” that help keep us on track and motivated.
1. Squeeze that workout in wherever you can
2. Every choice counts
3. HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)
4. Find a fit buddy
5. Meal Planning
Last but not least...
Our last bit of advice is simple. A healthy lifestyle is not a diet, it’s a mentality!
The goal isn’t having the perfect body…the goal is feeling good in YOUR body!! Stay connected and listen to your body! It has a lot to say! Remember too, we all get off track sometimes or have bad days. Don’t waste time feeling bad and beating yourself up! Just find what motivates you and use that inspiration to get back on track! Your body will thank you!
This is a great little guide to getting started and maintaining your health!
Also... guys. Don't underestimate tools like fitness/health instagram accounts. Fill your feed with things that MOTIVATE you. I know that social media is a big time sucker these days (for all of us), just make sure its filled with positive and healthy things! You'll be more successful in your goals. I promise! It's also a good space to keep you accountable (post about those healthy choices) and to make fit friends and connections.
Okay, rant over.
I just love you guys and am grateful for your support with the blog! I hope that it helps motivate you to make healthier choices- that's the whole point!
I'm a college-grad, certified group fitness instructor and certified personal trainer looking to get my healthy to the next level. I hope you can find a little something here that will help you on your journey too.
