Abs, Core, and Pelvic Floor

Abs, Core, and Pelvic Floor

So, this is something that is really embarrassing for me to talk about....but I know if I was struggling with it there are other women out there too just like I was. I had major incontinence issues after my kids were born. Any time I would do a high impact activity such as a workout that included a lot of jumping, or even coughing too hard, I would accidentally pee my pants a little (really embarr ...[Read More]

I’ve Been Defeated Already, but I’m Going to Try Again

I’ve Been Defeated Already, but I’m Going to Try Again

It takes courage to start over again. To say, "I've been defeated already, but I'm going to try again." Any time you set big goals or push yourself out of your comfort zone, it feels scary. But this is what I have learned is true. You have to learn to step into your fears. I remember when I was first trying to grow my brand I would email up to 100 people a week asking if we could collaborate toget ...[Read More]

Self Care

Self Care

If you are always looking for other people (or things) to make you happy, you never will be. If you want true happiness, start taking a look at yourself, your daily actions, and your personal belief systems. Taking a little bit of time for yourself each day is important. Remember, giving yourself permission for self care means you are giving everyone around you the best of you, not what is left of ...[Read More]

Love your Lines

Love your Lines

I used to feel ashamed of my faded stretch marks and loose skin from pregnancy. For a long time, I felt like it was unfair that I could get in really good shape but no matter what I did, I still had soft skin that wrinkled when I bent over and little faded stretch marks everywhere. Self acceptance was a long journey for me. Once I learned that my self-worth was so much more than just my outer shel ...[Read More]

This ONE Thing Makes All The Difference in the World

This ONE Thing Makes All The Difference in the World

Sometimes having a small win in your pocket can make all the difference. I know what it feels like to feel like a failure because you never can stick with your goals. I know what it feels like to start Monday off with excitement and end the week disappointed that you didn't do even half the things you set out to do. I know what it feels like to put yourself on a super low calorie diet only to raid ...[Read More]

Remember What is Really Important Here…

Remember What is Really Important Here…

Remember, your closest friends love you because of the kind of person you are, the way you remember to call when they are feeling down, because you laugh with them over fun memories. Not because the scale was three pounds lighter today. Your children love you because you show them that you love them unconditionally, you tell them bed time stories until they nod off to sleep, and you are present at ...[Read More]
