10 Ways for Single Moms to have a Fun and Healthy dating life

I was in a relationship and married for 7 years. Though I got two beautiful sons out of it, the relationship was not healthy or happy for me.
From the time I was 19 till I was 26 I hadn’t dated… So this whole new dating life is like a roller coaster that freaks the hell out of me.

I recently had my first experience of dating. To say the least, we are obviously not together any longer. But I did learn a lot…

I learned that I always wear my heart on my sleeve and go to the moon and back for people I love. I’ve learned to slow the F— down and not to just jump in head first. I just felt that I wasn’t being true to myself if I wasn’t completely emerged into the person. Damn.
I was so confused. For me the hardest part is letting go. Mainly because I learned to cope in a bad relationship and just deal with all the negative stuff and work through it. It’s hard because its just like losing a friend.
I value all the people in my life and all my experiences. But I know that there just comes a point that if the other person isn’t willing to go the extra mile then I just have to move on.
I know I gave my all, which in my part is more painful…I was genuine and real. There are just so many rules and bullshit when it comes to dating.
I imagine that with the right person it won’t be this way. But the book “He’s just not that into you” was an absolute must read! It might sound silly but it gave me a whole new point of view. I’m just a fool to fall in love, That’s my curse: I love romance and love and relationships.

The best quote that can sum up my experience is..

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” (Click to tweet, if you love this quote, too)

I know this might seem a little harsh.. I use this only because there are so many men out there who will sweet talk your panties right off! Who will use you for whatever they want!
Just because you talk to someone for 6 months does NOT mean you know them. You just know what they want you to know.

You have to really spend time with a person before you start to see who they really are. That is why I stress on telling you to wait to introduce your kids to anyone too early. Building trust takes time and patience. And any man who is willing to rise up and help build that foundation is worth knowing. I’d say 85% of the men you are going to meet are all just “talkers”.

dating tips for single moms“Of course I want to be with you, I love you, I’m a good man,” Psssh! I’ve heard it ALL! Be choosey! Keep your standards high.

Don’t be fooled by the wolf bearing sheep’s clothing! Meaning, just because this guy has SOME of the qualities your looking for, DOES NOT mean he’s the right guy.
If even for a second you feel unsure, then its not right. “When in doubt, don’t”. This is your opportunity to really discover who you are and what you really want from life and a partner. Get down to the nitty-gritty. Make a list, keep a journal.

Just have fun and relax. The right guy will pop up when you are not even looking.

As a single mommy I want for us all to fall in love… with the right person, NOT just Mr. right now.

We can still have fun along the journey to the right guy, but just not with assholes!

You can always email me if you are feeling confused or are questioning yourself about the person you are dating. Trust me. I will tell you he’s an asshole. Just be prepared for the answer!

Here are 10 ways to ensure a Fun- and Healthy- dating life

1. Know your worth. I know what I deserve and how I should be treated.

2. NEVER settle. Not even a little bit. Stay true to what you really want in a partner. BE STRONG.

3. If it feels wrong, then IT IS! Don’t waste time on anyone that feels fake.

4. It’s OKAY to get hurt. As long as you know in your heart you were real then you win the good karma!

5. Go slow…WAIT to introduce your kids to someone for at least 6 months or MORE!

6. Make sure he is a GENTLEMAN! If he’s not paying for dinner or drinks, how could he ever support you or your kids?

7. Stay focused on your life and your kids! The right person will blend easy and you will stay on track!

8. “You can never make the same mistake twice because the second time you make it, it’s not a mistake. It’s a choice.” This quote means to me that if the guy is screwing up and making bad decisions, then you need to let him go. Don’t give him another chance to hurt you. You are worth more than that.

9. Birth control…

10. ENJOY yourself! If you’re dating someone who makes you feel insecure with yourself or him, then screw him! There are so many other guys who will make you feel happy and secure!

How to Work out your Ass from Home- 4 Exercises to get it High and Tight like the Models

Do you want to learn how to work out your Ass and get a High and Tight Rear End like a Super Model?

Yeah, well so do I!

Being a young, single mommy of two, I know the struggle to find time each day to exercise. Let me just say that I have tried every possible DVD exercise program, cream, wrap, anything under the sun – I have done it. So I can honestly give you my unbiased opinion about what has really worked for me.

Every mom needs a realistic goal and quick exercise plan. And also, I know you don’t want to hear it, but you do need to eat healthy.

I’m not talking twigs and berries, but everyone can always improve their diet. Your saggy ass will not rise if all you are eating is sugar and fried foods. Trust me. I’ve tried.

So for this “How to Work out your Ass & Shape up that Butt” gig we have, lets start out with the preparation:

First, lets measure each thigh and around the widest part of your butt. This way we will know of you are making any progress or not. Write them down and put them away.

Next, lets just say 14 days we change our diet. Just something simple like:

Breakfast: 5 egg whites and wheat toast.
Snack: Sliced apple’s and cottage cheese.
Lunch: Grilled chicken with a veggie
Snack: Almonds or any nut with a fruit
Dinner: Fish or white meat and a veggie
Snack: Protein shake mixed with water, try blending it with ice so it feels like a treat.

This might seem like a lot when you have kids running around and feel like you can’t get anything done. So the key is preparation.

If you know you wont have enough time in the morning to get up and cook eggs, boil them the night before and eat them for a meal. And I know everyone would love to have grilled chicken for lunch, but realisticly, no mom on the planet has time to sit around and grill chicken everyday!

So again, prep. At the grocery store there are frozen chicken breast’s ready to cook. Pop those suckers in the oven for a few minuets seasoned lightly, and you have lunch and dinner all week. There are even some good frozen fish that take only minuets to cook. It’s all about what works for you.

Boiling your veggies is also a quick easy way to get them ready in a hurry.

Now the fun part! The exercises!

These are the absolute best exercise’s that have helped tone and shape my butt. I am still a work in progress so I want you to know exactly what helped shrink and round out my booty.

First exercise is: Cardio!

Cardio is important because it is so healthy for your heart. Your heart does all this work for your body and it wouldn’t kill you, haha, to give your body a little love back. Jump rope, jog in place, jumping jacks, run, jog, skip! Anything that will get your heart pumping and your lungs working hard. I promise your body will thank you for it.

Even a few minutes a day of cardio makes a huge difference.

Walking Lunges

Second: Walking Lunges!

These babies burn and you will feel it! They target those saddle bags and shape your thighs.
I want you to start out by doing 100. I can already hear your complaining and excuse’s from here! I know it sounds like a lot but it really isn’t. And they are fairly quick to do. It will only take minutes if you do them properly. Do them in reps of 10 at a time, then slowly work up to 20 at a time.

If I can find time to do these with my one year old chasing me around, so can YOU!

Squat Kicks




Third: Squats!
The first kind of squat I want you to do is a squat/kick.
Do 5 sets of 20 reps. Yes, that is 100! Just stay focused on your goal.

The second squat is a sumo squat. 5 sets of 20.
If you happen to have a weight/kettle bell/laundry detergent, hold it in your hands in front of you to add some weight and squat regular.

Step Ups







Fourth: Step ups!
If you have a chair or toy box about twenty inches or higher from the ground use it, if it will support your weight.

Do 4 sets of 20 reps. If you’re moaning that there is no absolute way you can do this exercise, then try some of these: If there are stairs at a park, climb em! Make it a fun game with your kids, whoever makes it to the top 5 times can be Rocky Balboa, talk with a slur and wear a sweat band. Jog around a track at a local high school. Run up and down grass hills with your kids. Anything with an incline that will push you to try harder.





Do all these exercise’s as follows:
Cardio: 5 or 10 min- Jump rope/jumping jacks

20 walking lunges (5x)
20 Squat/lunges (5x)
20 Sumo Squats (5x)
20 Step Ups

Try doing 20 of each exercise at a time. So you are not doing all 100 of the walking lunges at once. If doing these many reps is too much for you, do what you can.

But remember, you have to push yourself. Challenge yourself.

Try doing these for 14 days and then remeasure your thighs and butt, grab the paper you wrote on the first day and then compare results. I think you’ll be very pleased.

Lord knows I’d love to wake up with a rock hard ass, but that’s not going to happen without any effort.

If there is anything that I want you to take away from this article, I want you to have a new perspective on your body. Truly love and respect your body. For what it is and what it will be. The body you are in is only temporary and can easliy change at any moment.

Even if you think these exercises are complete bullshit, the most important thing you can do for yourself and your kids is to be healthy.

As women who have had children, we have seen what miracle’s our bodies are capable of. Our bodies are truly our temples and they deserve a little love and kindness too.

You are worth it. Every BODY, is worth it.

I believe in you.
