Hi again!

Hey everyone! It’s been a little while since I’ve updated this page but I have big plans to bring it back to life!

First let me reintroduce myself! My is Jessica Armstrong. I’m 33 years old with 2 kids, Apollo and Theo, who are 3 and 1 years old respectively. My husband, Anthony, and the boys live about 40 miles north of Dallas, Texas in McKinney. Anthony and I are both personal trainers and love to help others.

Everyone is busy and we certainly are in that same category. In addition to our personal training schedule we have others jobs. I work for Fox Sports Southwest as a producer covering the Dallas Mavericks and Anthony is a Real Estate Agent.

The reason behind MAKETIMEFORFIT is just as simple as it sounds. Make time for IT. We believe your health is your wealth. In this current state of Covid19, it’s certainly ringing true even louder than before!

Workouts don’t have to take 2 hours at a gym. Or be something you don’t like to do. You don’t like running, even dread it? Then don’t do it. Fitness is fun and should be enjoyable! Yes it can be uncomfortable at times pushing yourself to get stronger or faster but big picture, WE ALL NEED IT.

So thanks for following along. Hopefully we can be a resource for you in the fitness world and inspire you to make your health a priority and a part of your everyday life.

Be your own #1 fan

Happy Monday! Start the week off right, exercise, eat well and drink lots of water! But most of all remember to be your own #1 fan! Learn to push yourself! 👊

I’ll bet many times (probably more than you’d like to admit) you put yourself down or discredit yourself, question your worth, beat yourself up..and let me tell you – that will get you no where!
So here’s your little reminder – Don’t be afraid to be proud of yourself and your accomplishments whether they are personal, at work, at the gym – whatever!
You have to be able to tell yourself “good job” “stick with it” “don’t give up” you can be your own cheerleader!
Self motivation is something you need to reach your goals no matter what they are.
So when are doing great at work, take time reflect and pat yourself on the back OR when you make it to the gym like you planned that week – tell yourself “good job, let’s try to make it two weeks straight!”

That little saying “your catch more flies with honey than vinegar” it works not just for others but for yourself too! Be nice to yourself! Don’t put yourself down and expect to have a positive self image.

Little tip: take pictures and measurements to remind yourself where you started and acknowledge your accomplishments!

Just a little reminder to love yourself – so look in the mirror and tell you yourself you’re great!

Here’s a little food for thought!

Positive Thinking

You over slept, late for work, missed a meeting, spilled your coffee – it’s easy to chalk the day up as a loss and continue living in that mindset. But if you change the way you think, you can change your attitude and in turn changing your focus off the bad and onto the good!

We often set the bar so high it is almost impossible to be reached leaving us feeling unsatisfied and disappointed. With so many unattainable expectations we have each day, we overlook all the good things we have in our lives!

Try to take time to name 3 things that you are happy about at the end of each day. Big things, little things it doesn’t matter what, just anything that made you feel good! Training yourself to focus on the good will help you keep the negatives from creeping in! I bet you’ll be surprised at all the wonderful things in your life that many times go over looked!
