The Secret to Commiting to Your Best Mom Body

I’ll never be a meal prepper. I would like to be but my reality is that I cook for a family of nine where no one eats the same thing. Making one more large meal just for me isn’t going to happen. The thought of eating 3-4 day leftovers isn’t appealing either if I’m being honest.  I’ll never give up an entire food group. I have tried and failed within one day. I also probably won’t stop eating the last few bites of my kids’ mac n cheese….but I do commit to my health and fitness in two simple ways…..
