Crappy night of sleep. It’s pretty incredible how my mind can turn anything into a gigantic problem. I mean anything. I wish this was a marketable skill somehow. Anyway, wanted to run and do my workout but of course fell asleep like 4 mins before my first alarm. Went back to sleep and had enough time to get my other workout in (4 days a week and only 30-40 mins. Today was 29 actually. Doesn’t get much better or more convenient). #momlife #momofgirls #momoftwo #girlmom #girlmum #mumofgirls I#runnermom #riseandgrind #weightlossjourney #limom #NYC #beach #instagood #fitmom # #runnermum #lawyermom #workingmom #workingmomworkingout #motherrunner

Hotel workout ✅ long day of mediation...still to come. At least, I can feel good about this part of the day 😜

My arms are shaking so badly that taking this pic was a challenge! Also, had a 5 year old workout partner too so...anyway. Leaving on a three day work trip and woke up anxious (shocking I know. I could honestly work myself up over nothing. It’s a terrible terrible superpower) so I forced myself to get my workout done and I have to say I feel much better. Is it perfect? No, but it’s definitely better. Also, I am determined to get my workouts in while away. So call me out if you don’t see this sweaty mug #momlife #momofgirls #momoftwo #girlmom #girlmum #mumofgirls I#runnermom #riseandgrind #weightlossjourney #limom #NYC #beach #instagood #fitmom # #runnermum #lawyermom #workingmom #workingmomworkingout #motherrunner

#attnyy Yankees game!

So the other day I was out and about and I ran into two people I “know” from Facebook and other friends. As I walked away, I heard one say to the other “why would I want to join her groups? I’m smaller than she is” (note: I never mentioned joining a group to either of them ever). Because I’m human, it really hurt and I started to doubt myself. Then I was like wait. This moron thinks I am a coach because I want to help people be “skinny” 🤣🤣 If you’re my age (or any age really) and THAT’S your priority, well I couldn’t help you anyway. You want to feel better about yourself, feel stronger, get healthier, have a support system that has your back always, do things you never thought possible? I’m your girl. If you just want to be “skinny”? Keep it moving. 👋 (another note...if I have ever invited you to join one of my groups, it has NOTHING to do with your appearance. I just think everyone should challenge themselves and be part of a really amazing group of women)💪💪💪. Anyway, I ran 8 miles before 7:30 this morning. I bet their skinny asses couldn’t do that 😜

This is my friend Ashley. She’s a real person. She’s a busy mom, coach and travel agent (let me know if you need a Disney planner and I’ll give you her info). Anyway, she’s insanely busy like the rest of us, but she got tired of ignoring herself. She took a small amount of time a few days a week and worked out. She focused on eating well in a healthy and non stressful way and well... this pic speaks for itself.
Stop doubting yourself. Stop giving up on yourself. You can do this too! Next group starts next week. I’ll open it up to two more people. Message me if you want one of the spots. #momlife #momofgirls #momoftwo #girlmom #girlmum #mumofgirls I#runnermom #riseandgrind #weightlossjourney #limom #NYC #beach #instagood #fitmom # #runnermum #lawyermom #workingmom #workingmomworkingout #motherrunner

Dogs started barking at someone walking with their dogs so then everyone in my house woke up before they were supposed to (during my workout) and began arguing instantly. It reminded me of the days when they were younger and my workouts got interrupted every 3 mins or so.
Man, I forgot how annoying it can be! All you moms with toddlers and babies out there getting it done...you’re killing it. I know it’s frustrating to start and stop and start and stop but it’s better than not starting. Moral of the story? some days you’ll get a solo workout and some days you’ll have two kids in time out before 7 am 😜 momlife #momofgirls #momoftwo #girlmom #girlmum #mumofgirls I#runnermom #riseandgrind #weightlossjourney #limom #NYC #beach #instagood #fitmom # #runnermum #lawyermom #workingmom #workingmomworkingout #motherrunner

Almost skipped. Pressed snooze. Didn’t fall back to sleep and here I am. Except not in my usual workout room bc a bunch of dogs have claimed it as their own so I was in the land of 1000 toys. Dodging strollers and fake shopping carts make things more interesting don’t you think? #akamylivingroom

Today I noticed that it was much darker when I started my run than it has been. Ugh that means fall is coming...though it certainly didn’t feel like it temp wise (hello oppressive humidity). I like the fall (well early fall) but I LOVE summer and I can’t believe how quickly this one has gone.
I’m midway through the 4th week of my new program and I swear it feels like I started yesterday (maybe because it’s only 4 days a week? I don’t know). I plan to pack as much into these last few weeks as I can. What are/were some of your summer bucket list items? Did you do them? #momlife #momofgirls #momoftwo #girlmom #girlmum #mumofgirls I#runnermom #riseandgrind #weightlossjourney #limom #NYC #beach #instagood #fitmom # #runnermum #lawyermom #workingmom #workingmomworkingout #motherrunner

Meet my friend Jessica. One of the shining stars of my challenge group. This girl’s attitude is just amazing. She is so supportive to others as well and as great role model for her family. I couldn’t be prouder of her or happier for her.

Next group starts Aug 13!

People always think that coaching or taking care of themselves requires this insane time commitment. I work full time, coach and run challenge groups, have two kids with a million activities and a husband and friends and all kinds of shit going on. How do I get it done? I’m don’t have any extra hours in the day than you do! The answer... . . . .

Small pockets of time. Five mins here while waiting for the kids’ bus to check in with challengers. 5 there whole waiting for my salad to be chopped for lunch. 5 mins in the car before work. 30 mins while the girls are hogging the TV watching some show (except Liv and Maddie and Andy Mack bc I will watch the shit out of those). My point...you can do it. You can workout and take care of yourself. You can earn extra money with a side hustle to pay for those extras for you and your kids. It doesn’t take much time. It just takes the desire for change and consistency. Message me.
