At some point EVERYONE has to JUMP

Running a Marathon

Everybody, at some point in their life has to jump if you want to be successful. Jumping is the hardest thing for people to do. But you have to jump. If you never jump, you'll never be successful. My brother talked me into RUNNING back to our hotel from the restaurant tonight in Jackson Hole. I haven't ran miles in a while, so I was nervous....but we crushed out 7 miles together at an 8.5 mile pac ...[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 shell ...[Read More]

The Best way to Lose Fat

The Best way to Lose Fat

I have been asked before what the best way to lose fat is. With all of the different “dieting” techniques floating around it can be overwhelming to know where to start. There are a lot of different people who will try to sell you their program or their specific way to lose fat, but the reality is that fat loss occurs when there is a calorie deficit (meaning you are burning more than you’re taking ...[Read More]

Making Decisions

The decisions you make when you are alone and nobody else is watching are what define your character and are the biggest predictor of future success. This is true in health, business, and relationships. If you want to change something you don't like about yourself, begin to observe your patterns and behaviors. Being intentional about how you spend your time when you are only accountable to yoursel ...[Read More]

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]
