Do you ever have a hard time unplugging?  Entrepreneurs thrive under pressure.  The need to create can sometimes be addictive.  We are the type of people who would rather work 80 hours a week for ourselves than have a boss.  Can you relate?  I often have a hard letting go of the need to create something.  Or write.  Or design. Or choreograph.  Or learn something new.  I am a #multipotentialite 🤗
I dream.  I plan.  I plot to take over in a way that only I can take over and I thrive in this crazy, often sleepless self-imposed environment.  But just as I thrive and live for this the mental strain can be debilitating at times.  Mental fatigue can lead to physical fatigue and burnout.  So as much as I love what I do I have to learn to force myself to not look at my phone or not open my MacBook.
What are some of the ways you unwind?  I have family vacation coming and I’m already praying I can just focus on my family and not have the urge to develop a new online course or tutorial or website! 🤔 For now, I’m taking small steps to remedy this.  Some of my favorite distractions are watching TV with my husband or taking the kids out during the day or going for an unplanned workout or hanging out with friends and laughing til it hurts.
What are your favorite distractions?  Let’s learn to unwind together.
Ok everyone. This is VERY important to me. Not only because I could do a ton of good with the $20k grand prize but because it raises awareness for a cause that is often overlooked, our wounded vets! For anyone who donates $30 of more I will give you a free training session if you are near. If not I will give you a free coaching call and workout.  If you are not into fitness or don’t need it but have a business I can give you a free strategy session for social media. We are currently in double votes period for the rest of today. I am in SECOND place. I must be in FIRST place by 11pm tomorrow, Thursday, or I’m completely out. Can I count on you??? Help me out ❤️
Great nutrition is everything when it comes to taking care of your body and your health.  But when I need an extra boost I know I can’t rely on nutrition alone.  Staying up late, getting up early and the demands of my fitness classes and training sessions PLUS fitting in my own workout and mommy-hood simply screams HELP! 😱
I have found something that has helped me so much and now it’s time I share it with you.  I never recommend anything I haven’t tried myself.  But let me tell you that from day one this pre-workout supplement added that spark that I had been missing.  What I love about it is that it’s all natural. No artificial sweeteners!👏
If you know me well enough you’ll know by now that my body doesn’t allow sub-parr ingredients.  So far I’ve tried all the flavors but the berry one is my favorite.  The first time I tried it was before my Zumba class.  It was one of the best I had led in a long time.  I thought it was too good to be true.  No jitters.  No crash. So I decided to try again, and again, and again and now I’m hooked.😁
I even use it when I need more clarity to get my work done.  So go ahed and check out @wmnutrition to see their full line of products.  But here’s the best part: They are affordable and on top of that they have given me a discount code for YOU!  Use code MARYFIT50 for 50% off!!! They even have a great sleep supplement.❤️
Do you ever feel like you need a boost to get through your day?  Give this a try and let me know how you like it. 👉🏼 @wmnutrition •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Whatever you do, don’t take life too seriously. Growing up sucks! With being an adult comes responsibilities and frustrations.  The mortgage. The kids. The job. Take the time to have fun. Take the time to hang out with people who make you laugh and who don’t mind when you act silly. Let that inner kid out because in the end, we have to strive to live with a joyful heart.  And as we grow, that seems to get suppressed because of society.
“Act your age!” Um, NO!!! 🤪When was last time you did something silly?
Thank you Abbe for the candid shot!
Sometimes it’s important to be real because what you see on social media is curated for a specific purpose.  So let me get a little deep with you.  I may come across as someone uber confident and with a long track record of success.  People tell me I’m motivational and inspiring.  The truth is that although I’ve come a long way I’m still insecure and fearful and such an introvert.
I wish I were more charismatic and outgoing and I wish I could strike up conversations in person as easily as I do on Social Media.  I didn’t even meet my husband in a public setting.  I had a personal ad on AOL. Remember those?  Crazy, huh?
So where am I going with this?  I am wondering if you are someone like me.  A social introvert with big dreams and bigger frustrations.  Because putting ourselves out here like this is not easy.  Second and third guessing every photo, trying to come up with the right things to say, etc.  However, when I finally decided to share more of me that’s when I noticed that it’s what people like.  And quite honestly, I love sharing in a deeper, more meaningful way.
So what is weighing on your heart today?  For me it’s frustration over what is not working in my business at the moment.  But just sharing this makes me feel a little lighter because I know some of you might be feeling the same.  If you are, please let me know.  Let’s support and encourage each other and hold hands through this entrepreneurial marathon! ❤️
Instagram can do wonders for you when you have it set up properly. Head over to my Instagram stories and submit your questions. From learning how to use certain apps to make your account stand out, planning your posts, video splicing, graphics, monetizing, I have you covered! Ask away in my IG story or leave a comment and I will answer them.  I will be covering this and so much more in my upcoming live workshop: 👉🏼
How often do you get glammed up?  My every day look is fitness gear and messy hair. This takes a while to put together!  And like everyone else I try on different outfits and shoes and change my mind constantly. But when I put this on I thought “yes, this is it!” And I was so grateful to find this red number in my closet.
Can you guess where I got this dress?  If you guess some lux shop or chic boutique you’re wrong. This red number was only $12 at @forever21  You don’t have to spend a lot to look fab! What do you think? What are some of your awesome finds?
STRONG by Zumba!  Here’s a bit of one of my favorite quadrants. 😉What do you think? I promise to take great care of you if you come to one of my classes. You can start practicing from home. Check out my IGTV or: Tag a friend and challenge them to do this quick set 💪🏼
When life tastes like a juicy fruit... did you have any wins this passed week?  Remember that it’s not about how much you get done. It’s about trying your best and doing the work. Share a win with me. Did you start a new business? New weight loss journey? Sold a big account? Fell in love?  Whatever... let me know in the comments. Let’s celebrate!

Cheers to the weekend! It’s Friday and here’s what I’m planning: Pretty sure I’m working straight through—I’m inspired and the creativity flow is too powerful to halt on account of the weekend!  I’m hunkering down now through Sunday.  It’s something I’m really looking forward to, after all, business has been all I’ve dreamt of for as long as I can remember so when I’m on fire, I fan those flames.  But first, we plank!  How are your weekend plans shaping up?
Even a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. And this month, with all its 31 days, still begins with the first. Before I see next month, though, I’ve set out a few goals I’d like to achieve: 1. Sell out my upcoming Instagram Training 2. Enroll people in my nutrition and fitness coaching program and 3. Form new relationships with people on IG.
It’s a tall order, I know, but as the saying goes, if you want it, you must work for it!  This business means everything to me, and I’ve only come this far by setting goals like this every step of the way.  If I were the type to shy away from challenges, I’d have picked a different path! What are the goals you’ll set for yourself this month?

On the outside, you might think I’m outgoing or super confident, but just below the surface you might be surprised to discover I’m an introvert! It’s true...and you wanna know a secret? It makes me a better coach because I deeply understand my clients and serve them in a better way. I’d love to discover something new about you, so let me know in the comments below!
