What is the number one reason for not doing the things you really want to do? “I don’t have time.” It’s not surprising; we all have a lot on our plates. Lack of time is the reason why your to-do list never ends, limiting you from doing more enjoyable things each day.
For mom, the woman who does it all, this is especially true. But, there is a surprisingly easy way to help
I remember how much my mom had on her plate. She was raising two kids on her own and worked full-time. Then there was the grocery shopping, cooking, dishes, keeping up with the never-ending laundry pile, shuttling me to violin lessons, attending school events, and getting after us kids to clean up our rooms.
“No time” was the reason my mom would collapse on the couch exhausted every evening.
I also remember watching mom in the rare moments she had to herself. She would do her yoga and Jane Fonda routines in the living room. Mom was so cool! It was obvious that when she had the time to exercise, she loved it. I wish I could have given her more time to invest in and take care of herself.
I watched too as, much to her frustration, her weight started creeping up over the years.
She tried a couple fad diets to slim down. The cabbage soup diet, the grapefruit diet and Atkins were all the rage back then—but nothing seemed to stick. My mom was very smart, and taught me a lot about nutrition. But the weight wasn’t coming off because she was confused about what to do.
If only my mom were around today, I know what I would be getting her for Mother’s day.
Call me weird, but I don’t think jewelry, flowers and chocolate are incredibly useful to busy moms. Here is my Mother’s Day wish list: I would like some time to relax. Time to read a book. Time to take a walk with my dogs. Time to go to yoga. And most of all I want quality time with my family. OK, you could make me dinner, too (and do the dishes, please!).
Do you see a theme here? Time is really what I am asking for!
That’s why I have my freezer full of Personal Trainer Food. It literally buys me time, and gives me a better quality of life. I can get way more accomplished in my day without worrying about the next meal for myself and my family. There is no guesswork and no confusion. Just simplicity and convenience.
…and as a mom, here is another wonderful gift I got from Personal Trainer Food…
My 14 year old daughter, Kari, has adopted the Personal Trainer Food lifestyle. No, I did not have to bribe her to do it. By having convenient, healthy foods available to her (and by watching my healthy habits, just as I watched my mom’s) she has gone from a tight size 6 to a comfortable size 4. It isn’t like she was unhealthy to begin with, but her skin now glows and she is radiant with health, confidence, and energy.
Kari also feels like she can concentrate better in school. Best. Gift. Ever!
Give your mom (or yourself) the gift of time this Mother’s day. Empower mom to improve her health and get more done, especially the things she loves to do. Even if mom doesn’t need to lose weight, just imagine all that she could do if she didn’t have to cook or shop.
We’ll even make it easy for you with not one, but two great ways to celebrate the woman who does it all! Here’s how:

P.S. When I first started ordering my Personal Trainer Food, I kept finding a few hundred dollars in my bank account. I couldn’t figure out where the extra money was coming from.
Then I realized that with my entire family eating Personal Trainer Food that I was not spending my money on the fuel to shop for groceries, spoiled foods in my fridge, and impulse purchases at the checkout. Seriously, it all amounted to about $400 every two weeks for me.
Personal Trainer Food really does save you time ….and money too!
