What do you need to feel really, truly alive?
The answer is different for every mom I talk to, but it all comes down to one thing: self-care.
Look at your to-do list. Do you see anything there that even resembles self-care?
Yeah, I didn't think so.
You’re hardworking and driven in everything that you do. You dedicate your life to being an amazing mom and to being your family’s biggest supporter. But somewhere along the way, you’ve stopped supporting yourself.
You’re stressed and anxious about your health, but you just can’t find the energy and motivation to do something about it. (And that frustrates you, because you are a big dreamin’, bright and sparkly woman with a whole heck of a lot of potential).
You want to feel sexy and at ease in your body. You desperately want to love yourself, but you don’t know how.
You’ve tried before, but you’ve gotten off track (hellooooo, emotional eating and all those “too busy” excuses). You are exhausted, discouraged and just so sick of starting over.
I know you, because I have been there.
All my life I have been active (meaning cleaning horse stalls and hurling a fifty pound bucket of shit into a three foot tall trash dumpster), but I have also been a serial exercise quitter. I was never very athletic, as in playing sports, but I can dang sure hold onto the back of a speeding horse!
Throughout high school and college, I would get on a kick, start working out, only for it to last a few weeks and then... QUIT. It is so easy to let everything else you have to do get in the way of making yourself a priority. Yet, this is the most important thing you can do for yourself and your family.
I really had no idea how strenuous having a child would be, but as soon as my son was born I found out very quickly. The sleepless nights, the feeling of being all alone at 3 AM, the exhaustion, the love, the discovering your new body that just provided life, and the confusion of how I would make this all work. Somehow us women just figure it out! I had to go back to work when my son was only 6 weeks old, and I knew if I was going to make it at this thing called motherhood... I desperately needed a plan. I knew that going back to work full time, figuring how how to be a wife AND a mom would be taxing. I also knew I had to focus on ME, and make loving myself a priority. Otherwise, I was destined to head down a road that was extremely dark and lonely.
So when I made myself a priority and got amazing results (more energy, more fulfillment with life, less emotional eating, etc.) I had to share it with the world. I’ve worked with dozens of moms just like you. And I’m here to give you PERMISSION to put yourself first and help you kick the guilt around self-care.

This is what Suzanne Cox had to say after week four of this program.
I love all the info you share and it makes me stop and consider some of these things which is very important and helpful. By making myself go through the posts and answer the questions, I am forced to step back and get a perspective on how I am feeling, what is causing me to feel or react a certain way, and what I might be able to do to improve it.
I know you have your hands full. I know you are busy chasing your kids and doing #allthethings. Between toddler life, sports games, dinner and what, you have a husband too? Feeling like adding one more thing to your list might even make you want to run for the wine bottle.
But, before we have celebratory wine cheers, I want you to think about the last time you did something for YOU! I'm not asking the last time you snuck in a shower, or even colored your hat covered hair. I am talking about letting the world around you STOP, and really focus on YOU.
Of course the world around you will NOT stop, but there are ways I will help you make this easier.
Guess what??? I also have a wild child I am constantly chasing, I work at a hospital and am on-call seven days at a time AND I too have to feed my family, a small calf, and many other 4 legged creatures, yet making time for my self-care is essential to our family life and my health.
So make yourself a non negotiable.
set your wild heart free!

Howdy, if you don't know me yet, I am Brittia. I am a wife, boy mom, sonographer, cowgirl, health and wellness advocate, and the Founder and Head Self-Care Tour Guide at Fringe & Fitness. Born and raised in Southern California, I moved to Texas in 2005 to pursue the sport of rodeo and nurture my country roots as part of a college rodeo team in west Texas. A few years later I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences, from Baylor University (Sic ‘Em Bears!) and became a registered ARDMS Ultrasound Technologist in 2012. Along the way, I met my husband—a Texas A&M Aggie—and we fell in love, college allegiances aside, and wed in 2014. In 2015, we welcomed our first son, Conway. We now resides on 20 acres in Hallettsville, Texas, alongside three horses, two dogs, two cats, multiple chickens and we are currently growing our cattle herd. You can often catch glimpses of my wild toddler and critters in the background (and sometimes foreground) of my workout videos, which I share regularly on social media.

This is what you need to feel accepted, to regain YOUR POWER, to LET GO of stresses that are holding you back and tying you down. To set free your insecurities and to do it with a tribe of women just like you.
