It's not always easy, but it's always worth it! 

Momming is hard but you know what's harder? Momming when you are overweight, tired all the time, can't keep up with your kids - now THAT is hard. Not being able to play catch with your kids or chase them around on the playground...that is really hard. Sitting on the sidelines, watching life pass by is hard too.
I'll keep it real and say working out everyday and eating healthy can be hard too and I fail miserably sometimes, but I'd rather fail trying than not at all!
As each day passes and I witness the milestones my kids reach, it's a constant reminder of how fast time moves. We only get this one chance at life and I made a promise to myself, to my kids, that I'd at least try. I'm not perfect, and not many things come natural to me (I'm a little awkward 😂), but I'm going to try damn hard and just try to outdo the me from yesterday. That way I know I'm giving my family the best version of me and giving myself my health to keep up with them! 
I guess what I'm saying is...everything in this life is "hard." My challenge for you is to choose the hard that gives you life, health, happiness, confidence, energy, endurance, and overall well-being...because then at least the hard will be worth it! 🙌🏻
If you need help getting started comment with a  below or send me an email to with the subject "Choose Your Hard."

Free 5-Day Abs & Booty Challenge!

Bikinis & Shorts.... Two things I love and 2 things that give me the most anxiety as I approach summer....

Let me tell you, over the years I have gotten MUCH better about feeling comfortable with my body over the summer months. Up until not that long ago, I have always been self-conscious about how my legs look in shorts or how my tummy looks in a bikini. I have always been one to set new year's resolutions to finally drop the the weight, or to tone up, and then before I know it, it's getting warmer and I am not even close to reaching those goals. And then I am left wearing baggy clothes, wearing jeans even though I am sweating to death, and covering myself up at the lake all because I don't physically feel confident with myself. I have spent WAY too many years feeling that way! I used to try crash diets, diet pills, over-exercising, counting calories - basically anything quick - leading up to weekends like Memorial Day or the 4th of July in hopes I could drop 5-10 pounds before putting on that swimsuit. And every time I would either drop some weight and immediately put it back on over the holiday weekends, fail miserably or be HANGRY all the time (which is no way to live), or just give up, put on my jeans and hoodie, and sweat my face off. All of that is horrible, by the way.
Over the last few years I have learned that there is a much better, easier and WAY healthier way to drop a few pounds and I want to share that with YOU! I am inviting you to join me on Monday, May 22nd for my 5-Day Abs & Booty challenge! This will be 5 days of workouts focused on your butt and gut, healthy recipes, daily accountability & support, fun, and PRIZES!!

Monday Motivation

🌟 Goals for May 🌟

1) Be more diligent with my meal plan each week and refrain from late night snacking 😬
2) Stay on top of my water (I've been slacking lately) 💦
3) Stop sneaking leftover Easter candy  🍫
4) Tone up by working out 5-6 days/week 🏋 
5) Be more diligent with my meal plan each week and refrain from late night snacking 😬
6) Fit into a pair of jeans I've been wanting to wear for 5 years... 😳
Today kicked off week 1 of my Bikini Bootcamp 👙 and I couldn't be more excited! My online fitness community is ready to roll this month and I am looking forward to some amazing transformations this month! 👊🏻
Side note: I've always cringed taking my before pics because I always tend to focus on my flaws instead of what's good! And honestly, I've never really smiled for a "before" pic either but today was different! I know I have work to do, but today I focused on how I felt over just my physical appearance and couldn't help but smile! 😄 I'm alive, I'm healthy, I have energy, and I have so much to be grateful for in this life! 🌟 Focus on the good and suddenly the bad isn't so bad! 👊🏻

A Little Self-Love

"A mother who radiates self-love and self-acceptance actually vaccinates her daughter against low self-esteem." ~ Naomi Wolf
I like to think that I have a healthy body image overall, and really strive to show that (especially to my daughter) by making healthy choices and working out as much as I can. But, to be 100% honest, there are definitely days I struggle. And before I continue, let me just say that I am DAMN proud of this body and what it's done, created, and endured in my 32 years!!
I don't know why I was thinking about this today, but for some reason I had a flashback to myself as a young girl, probably 8 years old, sitting down and looking at my belly hanging over my pants. I don't really remember when I started caring about that, but I remember that specific moment and thinking to myself that I needed to lose weight. At 8 years old!!! It's just crazy how at such a young age I was feeling insecure about my belly. I remember joking with friends saying I hadn't lost my baby, from when I was born?!! For one, who says that? Thinking about that really made me realize how much of an impact things out of my control can have on my kid's self image. Magazines, tv, friends at school, family, etc. - there's just so much pressure to be "skinny" or to fit the image of what you are supposed to look like as a young girl.
Since that time when I was 8, I have always thought I needed to lose weight. I have compared myself to others thinking "I wish I had skinny legs like hers" or "I will never be a size 2 like her"... As a kid, I was made fun of for being "chunky" and really, it's had a lasting impact on me.
The good news is, once I had kids and realized all that this body can DO, those insecurities left. I am not saying I still don't wish my tummy was tighter, or that my legs had less cellulite, but what I am saying is that I don't dwell on it, or wish for someone else's body. Instead, I strive to work on MY body, and make it the best it can be according to MY standards, and not society's or some asshole's that made fun of me on the playground.
My goal as a mom is to just show my kids that you can love yourself no matter what you look like, the size of your clothes, or the things you are interested in. To love yourself if you are athletic or not, or funny or not, or artistic or not. To love yourself for being YOU and all that you are. To only compete with yourself and to never judge someone else for being different or having different priorities than you. To really, just be you. Un-apologetically, un-censored, and so totally and uniquely YOU. The world needs more of that for sure and if there is one thing I show my kids, it will be to follow your heart and not worry about what anyone else thinks.
Love yourself, take care of yourself, and enjoy the life you get to live each and every day. <3
