Kim's Kounseling Korner by Kimberly Martin
I have been very stressed lately... I am preparing for a National show
coming up soon and it seems that I have time for nothing! I have a
husband and 2 children and also work full time so it seems impossible to
do the show. If its not one thing its another! I am sure I am behind on
my prep but I can't seem to loose the weight or sometimes get to the
gym! What would you suggest I do? I really want to get this show going
but maybe there is something I am missing? I can't think because of the
low carbs! Help!
If you've decided to do the show, then you must make time.
Maybe you should get up first thing before anyone else and get your training done.
As far as diet goes, you probably already know you'll have to prepare your meals and your family's meals separately and in advance.
If it makes you happy to compete, then you must be committed to completing the show. Your family will appreciate and respect your determination and be happy that you're happy.
As the saying goes, 'A happy mother means happy kids' or something like that...
Hope this helps and good luck!

My name is Kimberly Aline Martin, but I go by the name Kim. I was born in Decatur, GA on November 1st, 1969. I've lived in Georgia my whole life and can't imagine living anywhere else. Well, maybe Hawaii...
I've been married to my best friend for over 13 years and we have two wonderful children, both boys, ages 5 and 12.
We now reside north of Atlanta and I am currently a stay at home mom.
Three things I live by:
I truly believe 'what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger'....every obstacle in life that is overcome makes you a stronger individual.
I also believe that everyone makes mistakes and those mistakes shouldn't be regretted, but embraced because they make you the person you become.
Lastly, be consistent-about everything in your life-and surround yourself with people that do the same.
