This past week, myself and my challengers took on Shaun Week - a brand new full body, 7 day boot camp by Shaun T 💪🏼 Each day a new workout was uploaded to the online workout library, and each day we pushed play and dug deep! It was intense. It was sweaty. And it was … Continue reading Shaun Week Results
As a new mom, it's hard to make sure you are eating well all the time, sometimes you just have to grab whatever you can find...and sometimes that was a handful of chocolate pretzel balls! I had been slipping into some not-so-great eating habits, so my team and I decided it was time for us … Continue reading 3 Day Refresh: Post Baby Refreshing
My body grew and housed this perfect tiny human. For the past 5 months it has been his only source of food. So why then have I spent the past 5 months frustrated that my abs haven't returned, or my arms and thighs are chunkier? 🤷🏻♀️ I'm human, and I struggle with things like body image … Continue reading What do you see when you look in the mirror?
Tonight I am heading to a work function with Rob. This morning I tried to find something to wear, you'll never guess what I found in my wardrobe... Nothing. 11 weeks ago I gave birth to a perfect, heathy little boy. He is the absolute joy and delight of my life. I love every second … Continue reading The Journey into Mommyhood: You’ll never guess what I found in my wardrobe…
I had an "epiphany" while working out yesterday. I was being super hard on myself for still being SO FAR from where I was pre-pregnancy even though everyone told me the weight would just drop off (and sadly I was comparing myself to other mommies' postpartum journeys). I realized that technically I've only been back … Continue reading The Journey into Mommyhood: My Results from Round 1 of the 21 Day Fix
It’s been a week (well, it’s been just over a week, because I forgot to share this on Friday), and our lives have completely changed. I shared my whole pregnancy journey on social media, and so I thought I would share my postpartum journey on Facebook and Instagram as well. There are so many expectations put … Continue reading Let the next journey begin!
The other day I had someone tell me that I cannot say that Shakeology was the ultimate game changer for me in my health and fitness journey because "it was clearly the workouts that had changed my body and not the shakes." Now, while I absolutely agree that the Beachbody workouts are AMAZING, highly effective, … Continue reading My Ultimate Game Changer
For those of you who don't know, I am currently 11 weeks pregnant. Rob and I decided to announce my pregnancy earlier than is usual (around 8 weeks to be exact) for a number of reasons, one of them is explained pretty well in this article. Even though I was expecting people to "share their … Continue reading 11 weeks and counting!
I have always struggled with my legs. We all know that magazines, ads, movies, TV shows etc. promote and place value on some pretty unrealistic "goals." We have all heard about how media can affect children from a very young age, so I am not even going to go there. But I will tell you … Continue reading Celebrate the Small Victories: My Struggle with Body Image
August 15, 2008: I was marrying someone I deeply loved, but I was sad, angry, difficult, self-absorbed, and negative. Very few people know [well, now a lot more are about to know] that Rob and I got "married" today, August 15, 7 years ago. We don't consider it our wedding day (that will always be … Continue reading Choose the Effort!
