Goals and Dreams. Will 2021 be your year?

 “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”  C.S. Lewis

I LOVE listening to friends, family and clients when they are discussing their goals and dreams. Once it’s out in the open it feels more real. It also helps motivate me!

These days it seems it’s almost taboo to discuss New Year's resolutions. Aren't New Year Resolutions just things you have been putting off for the whole year sometimes? I’m personally into goal setting every several months, but hey if you motivate yourself by waiting for a new year to start clean, more power to you!

You have every right to set a goal and act upon it, no matter when you do it. Goals are anything that matters to you, whether it is to change something in your life, your health, fitness or body. Do you prefer setting goals alone or with others? For some, setting goals with others can be extremely scary. The fear of failure is real.

Let’s be honest. Many don’t reach their goals. People start off full force, with the best intention, and then life gets in the way. They tucker out and eventually revert back to old habits, hence the New Year's Resolution.

Does that sound like you? If it does, what will you do differently this time?

We know for sure, life will get in the way of our goals. If you go after what you want with a road map that fits your current lifestyle, you’ll have less hurdles to jump through, and have a much higher chance of getting to the finish line. I know the feeling of failure. I’ve failed many times over the years. Instead of letting my failures define me, I get back up to reassess what went wrong and try a different approach. If my different approach doesn't work or it’s something out of my scope, I reach out to someone that knows exactly what to do.

So let's take a moment to look forward as many do at the beginning of a new year.... 

My goal is to make a much BIGGER impact in 2021. I plan to show even more people how to turn their dream fitness and health goals into reality! I’ll be starting this on the first day of 2021 with the Squat Challenge and then inviting more people in to Lauren’s Playground starting January 21st. In fact we will be kicking it off live, for those that would like to do them with  me at 8a.m. Pacific time. Invite in here

I am REALLY looking forward to seeing many of you the next 21 days! As we all know, it takes 21 days to build a habit that sticks, so this is why the Squat Challenge is this length and also why it has been extremely successful over the last 5 years! 

So, there you have it. That’s my mission this year. I will be laser focused on showing people the magic of Lauren's Playground and how the kind of training we do in the Playground can achieve my (and your) goal. 

I have many other little personal goals, but as a business owner and a fitness professional, this is the big one for 2021.

It's time to close out 2020 and hit 2021 with a BANG!  I wish you all a prosperous New Year and can't wait to see you at the Squat Challenge!

Happy New Year my friends!

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me. WELCOME! First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today! Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core aga

5 Year Blog Anniversary and Giveaway

My blog was born March 10th of 2007, 5 years ago, with this  post  that started it all.  It all started 6 weeks after giving birth to my first baby.  The purpose of this blog was to share my journey of embarking as a new mother recovering from a C-section, lost strength, and fitness.  I wanted to share my struggles and perseverance in getting back to my pre-pregnancy self all while enjoying my new road in to motherhood.  I felt this was an easy and convenient way for friends and family that live all over the world, to see photos of my children and updates about our life.  What an amazing experience it  has been for me.  I never thought blogging my experiences would turn in to so much more.  Through my blogging I got the chance to connect with so many wonderful people around the world.  I never fully understood how powerful the stories would effect so many people.   It's truly been an honor.  Being able to continue to drive motivation and hope in to someones life by sharing my life
