Healthy kids starts with YOU

I’m an advocate of being a good example to your kids in all areas of life. What they see you say and do is what sticks with them for most of their lives! It’s difficult to undo bad habits and unhealthy lifestyles once they are ingrained into our children’s minds so we’ve got to always be on our […] Read more…

Body Love <3

I wanted to recap a few things that have been on my mind since we did the February “Love your body” challenge, and also announce our winner! Julie Weaver scored the high of 92 points! Not only did she kill it, but she’s pregnant! It’s pretty tough to commit to eating healthier, avoiding sugar, and […] Read more…

Post-pregnancy abs

I’ve addressed this a little before, but I’ve gotten a few questions lately on this topic, and while I am NOT the expert, I’m wiling to share what I do know, and have researched more of. I don’t know that there is a solid answer, as many “experts” have differing opinions. As for me, my […] Read more…

Heart of a champion

I dunno if this surprises anyone but I am not a runner! So for those who do race long-distance, I am always amazed and inspired at that kind of athleticism. A few weeks ago, I was especially intrigued by my friend Nichole, and her amazing story towards chasing her goal to qualify for the Boston […] Read more…

If you always allowed children to be in control of what they put into their mouth, I’m pretty convinced that 80% of it would be sugar.  Just some helpful information: The American Health Association has set these guidelines for children’s […] Read more…

Fit pregnancy: how much is too much?

I’m writing this in response to the “super fit pregnant model,” Sarah Stage who is all over the news, and by news I pretty much mean my Facebook feed. And these are my opinions.. =) So this first-time Mom is something like 8 1/2 months pregnant. Seriously! So we all know what I looked like […] Read more…

Fit Moms

I recently came across a post on social media from a really amazing woman: Brooke Erickson. She’s an IFBB figure pro, with the most amazing legs! She’s battled both spectrums of diet problems and eating disorders but has found an outstanding balance between being in a healthy fitness level while putting her family first. “I am very […] Read more…

This One’s for the Mamas

This post is really personal (and embarrassing!!) but it’s real. Lots of people have been here. I’ve told countless friends and clients to chuck the scale, and base progress on pictures because that’s been eye-opening for me. And here’s a **disclaimer** This was not a crazy fast transformation. This was a year and a half […] Read more…
