'A New Perspective For Moms…..'

November 25, 2013 2 min read

"Motherhood is a choice you make everyday to put someone else's happiness and well-being ahead of your own. To teach the hard lessons. To do the right thing, even when you're not sure what the right thing is. And to forgive yourself over and over again for doing everything wrong."

  I have and will always say that being a parent is the hardest job I have ever done or will ever do. It requires selflessness, communication, patience, compromise, unconditional love and strength. There are nights that I look back at how my day went with my girls, and I just would WISH I had done things DIFFERENTLY. Maybe be not so quick to raise my voice. Listened more. Been more patient. Treated my 4 year old as a 4 year old, NOT an adult. And at the same time, let my kids be kids. I always second guess my job as a mother. Am I good enough? Am I doing everything right? Do I encourage them enough? Do they know on a daily basis how much I truly LOVE them from the bottom of my heart, and would give my life for them? How can I do things differently tomorrow than I did today? People say, being a mother is a 'thankless' job. A church out of Charlotte, NC put together this video. They created it for Mother's Day. After watching, you realize as a parent, a mom, how hard we can truly be on ourselves. We want so badly to be everything our child needs, but not knowing at all if we are or what that is. We focus on on faults and not necessarily our strengths. We don't really take the time to think about how our own children see US as parents. Seeing how you are perceived thru your child's eyes, can be extremely eye opening as it is in this video. Being a mother is a thankless job? I think after they watched what their children had to say about them, they would reconsider that.

Shipping & Delivery
We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

Free Shipping: We are thrilled to now offer free shipping at checkout! If you choose this option at checkout, your order will be delivered ground within 5-7 business days.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system
