How to Battle Exhaustion....MOVE!

I cannot even recall how many days I honestly feel as though I am the walking dead.  I am sooooooo tired.  How could I even be so tired? The boys did their usual 12 hour night so what is wrong with me? How can I possibly make it through the day as super Thriving Wife/Mommy and still get in my workout. All I want to do is wrap myself up in sweats and lay on the floor.

But alas, it has to get done. Once the boys are down (either for nap or the night) mommy has got to get to work.  Am I thrilled? Not all the time,  but I know I will hate myself way more if I don't knock it out.

I turn up the beats in my headphone and suddenly I get a jolt of energy. Once I get get moving and my heart rate starts climbing...suddenly, I am ALIVE!!! I check my Fitbit and can't believe how much time has passed, I am honestly reborn.

No longer heavy, my eyes fly open, my mind is crystal clear and I am ready to be the most Thriving of all wives and mommies.  Why did I ever doubt the power of exercise?  What if I had given into my weaknesses and laid on the floor like I wanted to? Ahhhh, the thought it just too much, GOOD FOR ME, I DID IT!

Instead of always running to nearest Starbucks to get your caffeine fix, why not take the stairs to you next meeting?  Look forward to your sweat sessions whatever time of day they are, because you are going to love yourself more once it's done.  You may be dragging your sneakers on the way, but once you start you WON'T regret how great you feel!
