Don't Feel Like Working Out? Can't Find Time? Need Accountability? My Advice 3 Months Post Partum:

Poll time:
What is your #1 reason that you don't workout regularly or can't seem to stick to a workout program, gym routine or whatever you have tried to do for regular exercise?
A. I don't have time
B. no accountability (I need someone who will make me feel like I have to do it and stick with it everyday)
C. I don't know what kind of exercises to do or how much of it to do in order to really see any results
D. Other (give your reason below)



I know what I always struggled with most, in the past was B (accountability!!!). I grew up doing gymnastics and cheerleading and had pretty strict coaches who were ALWAYS pushing me, testing me, checking up in my progress (or lack of it at times) and once I had kids and was on my own, I found it hard to motivate myself to workout regularly, because there was absolutely no one that I had to check in with or be held accountable to... No one would even know if I got my workout in or skipped it each day, except for myself...

That is why I LOVE having my challengers join me on this journey of mine!! They hold me just as accountable as I hold them! Today was one of those days where I didn't get a lot of sleep last night, it was rainy (for like the 5th day in a row!) and I knew all day I just wasn't going to be able to find the motivation to push play and workout!

But then I began to see all of my challengers posting their sweaty workout pics or just saying how great they felt that they got their workout in for the day and I could t be the one to have to post and tell them that I just couldn't fit my workout in today!

So at 7pm, I put in my T25 DVD, gave it my all and was so proud if myself afterwards! I told my group that I almost skipped today, but I didn't want to let them down!!

Okay, so that's my rant for the night!! I'm all pumped up now and feeling accomplished! It's the little things...

How to Succeed at Your Goals and Dreams -- Personal Development

Which one should I read first?? 

I am becoming a personal development addict! Which is an amazing thing!! I am learning so much and growing as an individual, a mother, a wife and a leader!!

As a Beachbody Coach, I take my job very seriously! I have people relying on me to help them achieve some serious goals!! Some people come into this health & fitness journey and are just looking to lose the last 10-15 pounds of baby weight, while others have struggled with some severe health issues due to their unhealthy lifestyles, watched family members suffer from poor health choices and not only want to make a change, but know that they NEED to!!


And I'm going to be up front and completely honest here... the hardest part of coaching for me is seeing the potential in someone, knowing that they could completely do a 180 and become that healthy, happy, active person that they dream and wish to be everyday, but hearing them make excuse after excuse of why they won't or can't change just kills me!

Sound familiar to any of you out there? Do you find yourself constantly THINKING or WISHING you were thinner, healthier, happier, or more energetic? Well guess what??!! I have the answer for you on how you can do that:

вєℓιєνє ιи уσυяѕєℓf!!!!

One of the main things that I've taken away from my personal development is that YOU and only YOU are in complete control over your life and the decisions that you make! No one can make you depressed or unhealthy, no one can tell you what you choose to spend your money on, YOU decide every single day what your priorities are in life and you CHOOSE to make excuses in certain areas of your life, because let's face it...it's a whole lot easier to do, right?

But the truth is...when you decide that you're in complete control of your life and the choices you make and are sick and tired of your own excuses, then that is when the magic happens!!

You can do whatever you put your mind to! So, don't you ever forget that!!

Tomorrow is a brand new day, so wake up with a brand new mindset! Set some positive goals and start making progress towards the YOU that you wish to be!

Make Money From Home Just By Drinking Shakeology, Working Out and Helping Others do the Same


I am looking for 5 people who are interested in learning how to start their own business from home, "working" as much or as little as little as your schedule allows, making an extra income by simply drinking Shakeology, working out at home and helping to support and motivate others to do the same!

You get the opportunity to make a huge impact on the lives of others, share products that WORK and meet some of the most positive, uplifting, amazing people along the way!!

Beachbody isn't just a company, it's literally like a big, huge, happy family! It's impossible to understand what I'm talking about until you become a part of it!

So if this post gives you even the slightest bit of interest or you're curious about hearing a little more about this Beachbody "coaching" opportunity, don't hesitate to shoot me an email (Crystal.Laiti@yahoo.com) or APPLY HERE so we can chat more!

What is Super Saturday and How Do I Become A Beachbody Coach?

Facebook, the news, angry drivers on the road, impatient people at the stores, even family and friends who only know how to gossip and make drama!! It seems like there is just so much negativity around us and so many people tend to just feed off of it! I know, because I used to get sucked into it from time to time...

If you are looking to become a part of something bigger and something life-changing, then I am building a team of strong, positive, leaders who are looking to change their own life while making a difference in the lives of others along the way through motivation, support and most importantly friendship! You could be just the person that I'm looking for! Apply Here and I will contact you with more details as soon as possible.

Mom Guilt -- Don't Be So Hard On Yourself!

So, I wanted to take a moment to be REAL with everyone, especially my fellow mom's out there. Is it just me or do us mom's almost constantly experience some sort of "mom-guilt"? We feel like we have to constantly be SUPER MOM for our kids? We need to have a clean house, have our kid's involved in sports, trips to the playground, the laundry needs to be cleaned, folded and put away nicely, dishes done, healthy dinners cooked....there's so much we feel we constantly have to have done, and even when we do get semi-caught up on everything, we still feel bad.
I find myself struggling with this on a daily basis.

I think another huge issue that contributes to "mom guilt" today is social media and the constant comparison of ourselves with other mom's who we see posting all these great pictures with their kids, doing Pinterest crafts all day in their clean, organized homes. And it looks like these kids in all the pictures are constantly happy, mom always has a big smile on her face and they have it so much better than me.

YEAH FRIGGIN' RIGHT! Who are we kidding... let's just be real for a second, here! Of course we'd rather share the fun, happy times, right?

But seriously... There are some days, as a stay-at-home mom that I just want to lock myself in my room and cry! Don't get me wrong, I love my adorable little babies to death, but my goodness... some day's I think that if I have to break up one more obnoxious fight over a LEGO, wipe one more poopy butt, clean up one more spill on the floor I just mopped, pick up one more basket of clothes off the floor that got dumped after I spend 30 minutes folding it... I MAY JUST LOSE MY MIND!!

So for my fellow mom's out there who think that I'm Super Mom... I'm not! I try my best, but just like everyone, I have my days where I feed my kid's McDonald's Happy Meals, sit them in front of the television for too long and raise my voice at them louder than I wished I would have. But rather than feeling guilty and inadequate as mom's, I think we need to focus on the good things we do for our kids, try to be patient on the days where we know it's running low and know that we are all Super Mom in our own ways.
