Holiday Hustle Accountability Group

Holiday Hustle Accountability Group

This time of year can bet CRAZY!!!!!  We get busy, there’s less time to workout, there’s more temptations, etc.  Which is why the average amount of weight gained over the holiday season is 7 pounds!!!! Can you believe that?  This is why “lose weight” or “get in shape” are two of hte most popular New Years resolutions.  This year I’m vowing NOT to be one of those people setting that resolution.  This year I’m vowing NOT to stress about gaining weight over the holidays.  This year I’m vowing NOT to go to parties and avoid enjoying foods or beverages that I really want to enjoy.  I’m going to enjoy them without feeling guilty and without over doing it.

Want to join me?  This year I’m hosting an accountability group called Holiday Hustle, that will assist you in getting through the holidays without being that statistic.

This online group will include,
~ a private Facebook group
~ daily tips and motivation
~ healthy holiday recipe ideas
~ fun at home or travel workouts
~ lots of support, accountability, fun and prizes! 

The cost of this bootcamp is just $40, kicks off November 27th and runs through January 2nd.

If you’re intersted in joining you can register by submitting your payment through the link below.  You’ll receive a followup email sent to your paypal email address once your registered and will then be added to that private FB group.  I’m so excited to help you feel confident and successful as we go through the hectic holiday season!

Please make sure to send me your contact email if different from your paypal address.  Looking forward to having you join!

Summer Strong Bootcamp!!!

Summer Strong Bootcamp!!!

Hi friends!

I’m SO thrilled to share some exciting news with you all.  If you caught my post the other day, you read that during my time away from blogging, I was busy studying to get my NASM Personal Trainers Certification.   You also read that I passed!!!!!

So what does this mean?  Well previously I was Group Fitness Certified which meant I could teach group fitness classes.  It was great but I wanted to do more.  Now I can train clients individually, in a group, in person or online.  Which is what I’m so excited to share about today!  I’ve been working hard on putting together an awesome online bootcamp called Summer Strong.  This bootcamp will be different from any of my previous Beachbody affiliated bootcamps and is 100% created by me.  While I believe in the Beachbody programs and am still a coach, I’ve found that this specific approach to eating and these particular workouts are working well for my body right now.  In the past several months, I’ve been tracking my macronutrients and have noticed huge gains in strength, significant fat loss, improved energy, and a newfound sense of food freedom I didn’t know existed.  I’ll share more about that soon but for now I wanted to invite you all to experience those things as well!   I’m so excited about this new bootcamp that will begin on July 31st.

This four week bootcamp will include,

  •  4 weeks of effective workouts that can be done at home or at the gym
  •  A nutrition guide that is based around tracking your macronutrients.  No portion cups, no calorie counting, just the right percentages of real foods
  • An online accountability group where you’ll receive support from myself as well as other groups members
  • Education and tools necessary to learn about macros, tracking your food, and fueling your body properly

There’s still plenty of summer left in summer to feel confident and strong in your body!

Message me at for more information.

I’m so excited to kick off this bootcamp and hope to have you join!



3 Reasons Why I Took a Blogging Break

I’m Back!!!!

I’m Back!!!!

Hey friends!

Long time no talk right?!?  I’d say I’m sorry for being so MIA BUT the truth is, I’ve enjoyed taking some time off from all things blogging.  When I say all things I mean I haven’t logged on to my blog in MONTHS nor have I read another blog in MONTHS.  There were a few reasons why I decided to take a little break (I’ll touch on them later) but it ended up being a little longer than I had planned.  Regardless, here I am!  I do want to start blogging a little bit more but to be honest, it most likely will not be very consistent.  I actually think blogging in general is fading.  I see way more interaction on social media platforms than on actual blogs these days.  Which honestly is where I spend more of my time these days.  So if you don’t already follow me on Instagram, or Facebook, you should!   Anyways, since it’s been quite some time I thought I’d catch you all up on some things that have been going on in our lives lately.  Even though I’m sure by this point I have ZERO readers 😉

Let’s start with my little muffin man!

9 Months to Gain 9 Months to Loose

9 Months to Gain 9 Months to Loose

Hey there!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful Spring so far!  I love spring almost as much as I love fall.  I think I’d probably love it more if we actually got to enjoy more of it… Where we live we typically go from rain to heat.  There’s very little in between.  BUT the few weeks of it that we do have we sure do enjoy!

Spring Time Fun with Evenflo!

Spring Time Fun with Evenflo!

We are finally getting some Spring like weather here!  I know, I know, Spring doesn’t actually begin for a few weeks but we’ve had such a wet and cold winter that the gorgeous clear blue skies and milder temps are so appreciated around here.

Especially when you have two little boys who love to be outside. [Read more…]

Why we Vacation WITH and WITHOUT kids

Why we Vacation WITH and WITHOUT kids

Hey there!

I know I’m hit and miss these days on the blogging front but am planning on trying to get back into it a little more now that we’re in a bit of a routine.  I’m not going to lie, two kids can be a bit crazy at times.  That plus managing the household chores, coaching, teaching at the gym and studying for my Personal Training Cert.  That last one has taken precedence over blogging as I really want to focus on passing.

Anyways, I’m here today with some free time so figured I’d pop in to chat with you all for a change.  Mainly about the topic of vacations.  We just returned from an amazing vacation in Mexico!

Oh Hey there!

Oh Hey there!

Check, check… Is this thing on?  I know, I’ve been MIA for months now.  All I can say is sorry I’m not sorry 😉  It’s been a very refreshing break and one I’m not sure is actually even a break.  I’m just now starting to get the urge to blog again but don’t think it’s going to become a consistent thing again.  Priorities right?

In the off chance that I actually still have blog readers, I thought I’d pop in and share a little about life lately.

A Day In Our Lives + Wild Zora Giveaway

A Day In Our Lives + Wild Zora Giveaway

Oh hey there!  How’s life treating you all these days?  Yes, we’re still alive, and still busy as ever!  Which means blogging has still been pretty non existent.  Still, I’m okay with that for the time being.  Family comes first!

I figured since we haven’t chatted in awhile, I’d pop in and share what a day in my life looks like lately.  Of course it’s always changing as things just do when you have kids but just for fun here’s a peak at our Tuesday 🙂

4:50 – Tuesday’s start early for me as I teach the 6:00am class at Burn-IT.  It just so happened that my little muffin woke up at 4:49 and wanted to eat so perfect timing!  We aren’t on a firm schedule as far as eating/sleeping goes.  Most nights he wakes 1-2 times to eat.  Sometimes like this past Monday he wakes more frequently and wants to eat all the time…  I blame the full moon for that night 🙁  Anyway, I feed him, then get some coffee, check in with my challenge groups and head out the door for class.

6:00 – Workout and coach a 45 minute HIIT class.  We did 15 minutes of treadmill intervals, 1 min at a jog, 1 minute at a push pace, 45 seconds at an all out sprint.  Then did a floor circuit which left us drenched in sweat!


7:00 – Get home and quickly shower while The Hubby finishes up breakfast with The Love Nugget.  Blend up a pumpkin pie green smoothie for me (and some for The Love Nugget) then get the Muffin Man up and get us all dressed.


7:45 – out the door to take The Love Nugget to school.  Drop off is 7:50 which is WAY too early in my opinion…

8:00 – Back home to nurse my little guy real fast before heading out to run some errands.

8:50 – Meet a friend for coffee and some shopping 🙂


BTW I’m not normally a huge Starbucks fan but when those red cups roll out along with my favorite peppermint latte’s I can’t help myself.  My treat drink is usually a almond milk latte with one pump of peppermint.  Yum!

11:15 – Pick up The Love Nugget from school, chat with some other moms and his teacher then homeward bound.

11:30 – Nurse the little muffin then help The Love Nugget get his lunch while heating up mine.


PB and J, carrots, mandarin for him, baked cod, rice and vegetables for me 🙂  Prepped ahead makes for a fast lunch!
12:30 – Put the baby to sleep then search for plane tickets while The Love Nugget plays outside.

1:15 – Finally book our tickets to Cabo in February then call the Love Nugget in to take a rest.  We read a story together then he reads some books on his own.

1:30 – While he rests, I clean up, put away laundry and get some work done.

2:00 – Love Nugget wakes up and we color then he plays outside while I get some stuff done on the computer.

2:45 – My little muffin wakes up and I feed him then we head out to run a few errands.


We eat a quick snack on the way home of mandarins and Wild Zora Jerky.


Speaking of that snack, we’ve been obsessed with both mandarins since it’s their peak season right now, and Wild Zora bars.  I’ve mentioned before how much we enjoy these grass fed meat and veggie bars on my Instagram but wanted to share here with you all.  Wild Zora  was created by a health conscious woman named Zora who wanted a healthy snack to feed her family.  One that was free of grains or gluten or soy or added sugar or MSG or Nitrates.  This was hard to find so she decided to create one herself.  There was born Wild Zora bars!  A delicious combination of grass-fed meats and veggies.


Flavors include;

Parmesan Beef Bars with Kale, Tomato 

Chili Beef Bars with Kale, Apricot, Cayenne Pepper

BBQ Beef Bars with Kale, Tomato, Red Bell Pepper

Curry Masala Turkey Bars with Spinach, Dates, Cardamom
Mediterranean Lamb Bars with Spinach & Turmeric
A delicious snack I can happily feed my family and myself 🙂
4:15 ish – Get home and feed the little muffin again then get help The Love Nugget build with his fort boards.
He was really focused on making a letter L.
5:00 – Get dinner together, tonight is soup with broccoli, chicken, carrots and butternut squash.

6:00 – After cleaning up, it’s time for bath time!


Then he eats again while The Love Nugget watches his show.  Little man falls asleep when he’s done.  It’s a little early for him to go to bed but oh well.


He doesn’t take a pacifier and isn’t a thumb sucker but enjoys those two fingers…

7:00 – The hubby gets home from work and takes The Love Nugget upstairs to read stories and get ready for bed.  So I watch a little Gilmore Girls on Netflix and relax on the couch.  Everyone kept telling me to watch it and now that I have I can’t stop!

7:30 – Hubby comes downstairs so we hang out and watch some DVR’d This Is Us.  Love that show!

8:30 – I head to bed since I know I’ll be waking up to feed my little muffin in a few hours… He usually wakes around 1:00 and 4:30.  Someday we’ll sleep train…

Now for something fun!  As mentioned above, I’m giving away some of our favorite healthy snack lately.  Wild Zora Bars!  Follow the instructions below and enter to win!
