Tomorrow is THE DAY.
We are headed to Nashville for the annual Beachbody Conference for 6 whole days.
I am SO INCREDIBLY excited!
I've never been to Nashville.
I get to meet some inspiring teammates from all across North America in PERSON.
It's hard to believe that we conference call every month, and I've yet to meet many of the most influential people in my life.
That's about to change.
I get to experience celebrity led workouts with our Master Trainers like Tony Horton, Chalene Johnson, Shawn T, Sagi Kalev, and Autumn Calabrese.
And we tacked on a extra day due to a hairy flight schedule home; therefore, I get one whole day to explore in a unknown place with my husband!
Kinda brings me back to memories of when we first dated. :)
But the drop off to grandmas the night before a trip, never gets easier.
For me, that's the hardest part of taking a trip when he can't come along.
Even though he's two and a half and well adjusted at Grandmas, I still get teary eyed when I leave him.
But as I was sweating though my 60 minute cardio session and 30 minute back workout today, I kept telling myself:
"Any investment in my own health and learning is a chance to role model a positive life to those little eyes that are watching me."
"It's a chance to reconnect with my husband as we run our Beachbody business as a family business. This relationship is just as important to raising our son in a happy home.
"I've earned a few nights out on the town! It's hard wearing your big girl panties and grinding out your dreams and plans every day. I've got a plan to still stay on track with my bikini competition plan, but enjoy a bit of balance while on a mini vacation/business trip."
"Oliver gets to experience LOVE from other places than Eric and I. I know he will have a wonderful time with his grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins and he may learn lessons that Eric and I could never teach him.
We will both be trying new things and making memories.
Money will come and go, so take the trip. That's the mantra my family lives by!
But experiences shape who we are.
Saying good-bye for a few days isn't easy, but I know when we return, we will all be ready to come back together as a loving family.
Day 16 of 168... DONE!
PS. I should get a medal for honoring his request for ice cream and NOT EATING ANY!
*Still on the plan. Still making moves. Still on my journey as an average mom and fitness professional taking it up ONE NOTCH in my own health as a bikini competitor.*
