When is the Best Time to Workout ?

When is the Best Time to Workout ?

Why I like working out in the morning: – I usually eat better during the day when I’ve worked out in the morning (just a psychological thing for me I guess). – I’ll eat a small breakfast before I go, like greek yogurt that has protein and some carbs, and then about an hour before my workout have a little Driven pre-workout (especially if it’s leg day!) and then afterward some of MRM’s strawberry w ...[Read More]

How to improve Ab Separation

https://www.facebook.com/NatalieHodsonOfficial/videos/1368158913261826/   After I had my babies (they were each TEN pounds!), my ab muscles never come back together properly. I didn't know it at the time, but this is something that is actually really common for women post-pregnancy. I was doing all kinds of exercises that I thought were making it better (like crunches)....but those exercises ...[Read More]

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.

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]

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 was around 220lbs on the photo on the left. The photo on the right is me currently with my two kids. A lot of people always want to know my 'secret' but the truth is I didn't do it with any fancy diets or pills. I didn't cut calories or carbs to an extreme level. I never ran a ridiculous amount of miles. I ate whole, nutritious foods, lifted heavy weights, and did a little bit of high intensity ...[Read More]

The Power of Habits

"A nail is driven out by another nail. Habit is overcome by habit." -Desiderius Erasmus I have learned that, for me, my motivation comes in cycles. I have noticed that a few times each year I go through a couple weeks where I lose that motivation and desire to workout. What I have learned, is that when I start to feel unmotivated, I really try to focus and fall back on my habits to keep me going. ...[Read More]
