My favorite snack consists of fruit and healthy fats!
•Grab a crunchy, yet juicy apple, core it, slice it, and cube it.
• Add one heaping scoop of coconut oil and almond butter, sprinkle cinnamon over the top, & and heat it up for a minute.
•Pour mixture over the top of the apples, stir & heat for another 20 seconds!
Delicious ✌🏼️ Healthy fats for the win!

Last night we tossed the kids in the car & traveled to Mankato to watch our favorite college hockey player @nolannicholas compete.
The kids all absolutely adore him.
He’s always got a smile for anyone he comes in contact with.
He’s a class act & one of a kind.
Baby G thinks he smells bad... but that’s nothing to hold against him after a hard fought game.
My goal is to raise my little dudes to leave the same impact on others as Nolan does.
Shoutout to @keri_nic for raising your son’s to be kind humans.
Thanks for the tickets, Nolan! See you soon. Xoxo

Here’s the deal... Baby’s don’t keep. And I’ve been fortunate enough to witness every single milestone & “first” of her life.
I can’t say the same about even half of my boy’s early childhood.
Some of you are thinking— that’s life, you have to go to work to provide for your family.
Others carry the same guilt l do with my boys.
Some have no interest in staying home with children or working from home.
While others only wish they could find a way (now or in the future) to be present during the SHORT window that these humans have with us (outside of school age).
I never envisioned myself enjoying working from home while raising humans... but after MANY missed firsts, milestones, FaceTime sessions, & hours spent in a hockey rink (with and without my kids)— I’m so thankful to have this business opportunity in my hands, & to provide it with so many others looking to build an empire in the cracks of their day! THIS MEANS YOU 😘
When did your kids first begin to walk?!

Typically I spend my mornings working and playing with the kids... then I put Miss G down for a nap, and quickly prep dinner before my workout.
Today, my husband came home and prepped dinner before HIS workout!! Now THAT is a fabulous surprise!
TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK! And I hit lottery with this guy, @christianbragnalo

“Oh, l get by with a little help from my friends” 🎼
Ok, so maybe @daniellewalker isn’t my real friend, but I’d like to think if l ever met her she would be.
I preordered her new cookbook months ago (since I’m obsessed with her 3 other books & pull from them weekly for dinner inspiration), and totally forgot it was coming this week!
So, pair BRAND NEW recipes to share, with a BRAND NEW workout program (hot off the press today) to complete— 20 minutes a day, for 6 weeks, & KILLER results... l see this New Year starting off EXCELLENT in our already rocking Wellness Community!
Join us as we end the year strong & begin the year with a BANG!

Just a couple of hockey mom’s who survived another Minnesota #snowmogeddon without a cancelled hockey practice!
We celebrated by playing in the aftermath!

The (literal) mountain of laundry built up after that pesky #norovirus made it’s way into our home has been slowly taken down... ALL the comforters!
But ONLY after setting up the remaining handful of rockstars entering my wellness community & taking advantage of HUGE #cyberweek savings which ends TONIGHT. #becauseduh
Sorry, honey. The beds will return to normal tomorrow.
Don’t miss out on this savings, y’all! New Years is coming!!! Don’t wait...

Surround yourself with people who make you smile.
People who make life fun.
People that are kind.
People who care about you.
People who work hard & are thankful.
Life is too short for jobs we hate, people who are unkind, feeling stuck in the grind, & going into new situations with loss of hope.
We took on this “events team” gig as something to do to make some extra money, get out of the house, & to see each other more!! It’s been ALL of that and more. Health & wellness coaching paired with event planning?! #signmeup
HAVE HOPE & GO FOR WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY! #santaslittlehelpers #holidaydecor #thisispartofmyjob #youareworthmore

We had a girls day today... Charcoal masks & shopping online rocking the #cybermonday sales!
I remember setting an alarm for 5 am on cyber Monday in the past— just to snag those awesome deals for the holiday’s & trying to get if all in before work.
NOW, my job is a part of these HUGE SALES— $20 off an already CRAZY low price for workouts + nutrition guidance + superfoods + accountability is INSANE VALUE! 💰
Rumor has it— it’s been so popular they just might extend it through the end of the month!!!
I know what YOU should ask for from Santa, girlfriend! 🎅🏼
What was your best Black Friday/cyber Monday deal you took advantage of today?!

“See you later” is always the hardest part... But, we only have to wait a month until we overstay our welcome & bring this circus to papa & grandma’s house for a few weeks! 🇨🇦 💕
Pretty difficult to find a job that gives you that freedom, eh?!
You know you’ve thought about it— let’s chat, girl! 😘 #mompreneurlife #flexibility

Thankful would be an understatement.
We are so blessed, and surrounded by the most amazing family and friends.
Happy Thanksgiving, y’all. Xoxo

Baby girl #nursery & “big boy” room (hello #bunkbeds) are in the works!
Shoutout to my brother, @coachschroeder, who agreed to spend his holiday break helping me get rid of the hot pink walls in our basement.
Now, to workout, go shop pre- #blackfridaydeals for some blinds, decor, & Christmas presents, & eventually prep for #thanksgivingdinner
Are you a bargain hunter & in love with the #blackfridaysale & #cybermonday hype too?!
