I have a million and one errands to run today, but not before I get in a nutritious breakfast. And, despite the fact that it is 35 degrees outside, this ice cold smoothie hit the spot. Check out my stories and you will see that I was not the only one who “dug in” on this bad boy 😂. I have been walking the line a little too closely lately and I have made a commitment to myself to keep clean until Christmas Eve, when we have our big family dinner. That means no more rice cakes, no more cafe rio 😭, and no more “occasional” M & M’s. I have some water weight to shed and I am determined to keep my weight in check this holiday season. Hold me accountable friends! I can do this ✊🏻.

Last night’s dinner still has me all 🤤. Bbq chicken, oven roasted asparagus and a delicious side salad. Even during the holidays my friends it is important to get in those veggies and healthy foods. That way when you have a little holiday indulgence, you can feel comforted knowing that you got in your nutrients too. 👍🏻

In case anyone needed a reminder, 🙋🏼. Trying to loose some of that turkey weight??? Veggies, veggies, veggies!!! I can’t stress that enough. I swear, even on days where I have one two many indulgences, I find that if my veggie intake is where it is supposed to be I still loose weight! High fiber, check, packed full of nutrients, check check, leave you feeling full and satiated, check check check! Eat more veggies my friends! Your body will thank you and so will your scale👍🏻.

🎶 All is calm, all is bright 🎶. Love looking at my beautiful tree 🎄 that my kids decorated (all by themselves I might add) before I head off to bed. In these next few busy days before Christmas, try to focus on the little things. It’s so easy to get caught up in the chaos and loose sight of all the many little things there are to be grateful for. For instance, I am grateful to have a roof over my head, a warm bed to sleep in, four beautiful children I get to call my own and a husband I love and cherish. I am grateful for this time of year and the peace it brings to me and I am especially grateful for all of you! Thank you for your daily inspiration and motivation. It means the world to me. I hope you too are filled with love and peace this evening as you drift too sleep. Sweet dreams my fit fam, may your dreams be merry and bright! .

Mid-day pick me up! I try to avoid soda as much as possible, and I don't drink coffee #lds, so I am always looking for alternatives for energy boosts. Enter @nuunhydration! Great flavor, not too overpowering and gives me just enough kick to get my but back in gear without making me feel super jittery. There are several different flavors, and they are all delicious. Try them out! I got mine at REI, but you can buy on Amazon as well #iloveamazon. Any other pick me up suggestions? Toss them my way 👍🏻

Every day on his way home from school, my son picks me flowers. I know it may not seem much to some, but it means the world to me. The look of excitement on his face as he hides the bunch behind his back anxiously waiting for my expression at the “big reveal” is unparalleled. I know he will not always do this. I know he will only be little for a short time. It’s for that reason that I must document these precious moments so that I can keep them with me and always remember them. Thank you my sweet boy, I love them so!
*sorry to any neighbors he might be picking from, we tell him not to pick “live” flowers, only ones that have fallen off the plant, but I am not sure if that is always the case 😬*

Last nights dinner, @paleorunningmomma ‘s cranberry chicken. It was sooooo good! The perfect mix of fall flavors and kid approved! There has been so much going on around our home lately. Last night was the first night in a while that we were able to sit down as a family and have dinner. Despite all the chaos that this time of year can sometimes bring, I want to always remember that family comes first and always make that a priority. Have thanks for all things my friends and always find joy in your journey!

5 second transformation my friends. On the left I am showing my mad skillz at sticking out my food baby (1 too many rice cakes 🤦🏼‍♀️), and on the right I am holding that baby in tight (and showing that I have street cred ✊🏻👍🏻 ✌🏻). Don’t get concerned if you have a snack or meal go awry. Remember fitness is about the JOURNEY not the DESTINATION. Especially during the holidays, always try to eat clean and train mean. Your body will thank you! 💋🏃🏼‍♀️ 🏋🏼‍♀️ 💃 .

Guys, I have been fighting this urge since September, but when a deal this good comes along, you just can’t pass it up! Now, I am not a big direct sales kind of person. But, I do believe in supporting great products and great companies, and Zyia definitely exceeded all my expectations in both areas! 👍🏻 I am not here to sell you on something you don’t want or something that doesn’t work. But, I do want those of you who are interested to know that this is a fantastic company with amazing products, tried and tested by yours truly 💃. So, if you’re addicted to active wear, like me 🙋🏼, check it out! There is a link in my profile or you can dm me any questions you might have. Those of you who are not, great! I’m still me, you’re still you, and we’re all still plugging away on our own fitness journeys. ☺️ 🏃🏼‍♀️ 🏋🏼‍♀️ .

Love to you all my fit friends. I hope you had an AMAZING day. Now go get some sleep, and be ready to kill it again in the a.m. 😘

If I could have one theme for this holiday season and the upcoming year, this would be it. Commit to be fit my friends. The only thing standing in the way of your goals, whatever they may be, is you. So let’s get over ourselves and get to work! Don’t wait for the new year, start now. Now is the time to hit the gym. Now is the time to go for a run. Now is the time to clean up your diet. There is NO time like the present. Start with small changes, like taking out sodas or going for 10 minute walks. Giving yourself small attainable goals and then go from there. What are you waiting for?!?! Tomorrow is Monday; a new day, a new week and new opportunities. Let’s do this!

Variations of #plank and #core workout today. My tummy has always been my weak point, and I am a big believer in “abs are made in the kitchen” but I also know that finding ways to strengthen your core can be beneficial in all aspects of your fitness regime. From L-R plank with “UUDD” arms, side planks with leg raises, plank with leg extension knees to elbow, and plank with to taps. ‘Tis the season for candies, cookies and pastries my friends, but don’t let that get in the way of your fitness goals. Remember, fitness is a lifestyle, not a quick fix. Happy Saturday fit friends!
*do not do planks if you have diastasis recti! More to come on that later * .

Working on handstands is not just for kiddos my friends. They are a great way to work on shoulder strength, core strength and balance. This video was taken on our third round of handstands for time, and by this point all the blood in my body had raced to my face making me look a little pinkey 😉. Workouts are supposed to be fun, so have fun with them. Try new things and explore different functional movements. Happy training my friends!

Tonight was leftover night. I combined parts of Monday and Tuesday’s dinner to make up this delicious salad. We start off with spinach as a base and then use the bbq chicken from Monday’s dinner and the black beans and sautéed peppers and onions from #tacotuesday dinner. Top it all off with sunflower seeds and poppyseed dressing and oh my word we have lift off!!!! The sudden drop in temperature has got me and all my kids a little sniffly. So, in an effort to stop any little bug in its tracks, I have been pounding the veggies, drinking my tumeric tea ☕️, and chugging water like there’s no tomorrow. I hope it works. But bug or no bug, i’d remake and eat this salad 🥗 again any day!

Sooooo, I picked up a lot of teas at that cute little store in Cambria. This one definitely caught my eye. Tumeric has WONDERFUL medicinal properties. It is anti- inflammatory and is a very strong antioxidant 👍🏻👍🏻. Keep in mind curcumin, the main active ingredient in tumeric which gives it those wonderful super food benefits, is poorly absorbed by the blood stream. Consuming black pepper with tumeric helps to increase the absorption. I know, I know, some of you are thinking “tumeric and black pepper” 🤢. But when you think of and realize that food is fuel, not just deliciousness, it makes it easier to come to grips with the fact that sometimes our body needs things that our taste buds may not agree with. Like cough syrup and that horrible drink they make you take when your pregnant and they are testing you for gestational diabetes 🤢🤢. Do it for your health and body my friends! Anyone have tips and tricks to share about other anti-inflammatory foods? Comment below 👇🏻 and let me know!

Enjoying some “crisp cranberry orange” tea that I picked up in Cambria last weekend and admiring the beautiful flowers that my husband bought me. I absolutely love this time of year. I know everyone says that, but December brings me even more joy than just the “Christmas spirit” because of all the beautiful experiences this month has given me. My husband and I began dating in December, my husband proposed to me in December and my first born came into this world making me a mother, in December. It is absolutely the most wonderful time of the year! Take a moment for yourselves today my friends. Drink some tea, enjoy the holiday music, read a book, or just do something you love. You have most definitely earned it!

Do not compare yourself to others my friends. We are all on different journeys, we all have different histories. In the fitness world, there is a huge tendency to compare ourselves to others. Let’s spend less time comparing ourselves to others and being jealous of what we think we lack and spend more time being grateful for what we have, especially during this wonderful holiday season. You are all amazing, you are all beautiful, you are all wonderful. Focus on you, focus on your family and spend more time bringing yourself up and not down. We are all here to learn from one another. Happy Sunday my fit friends!

Working on my “toes to bar”. I still don’t have my kip right, but I am working on it. Doing a strict “toes to bar” is never a bad idea, you are taking away the momentum and therefore making the movement more difficult. Fitness is always such a work in progress for EVERYONE, especially me. I love being able to constantly learn and progress. That is what makes fitness fun! Happy Friday fit fam! Get out there and try something new today!

Who’s up for an eggnog smoothie!!!! 🙋🏼🙋🏼🙋🏼. I have been WAITING to make this smoothie for weeks. Now, on December 1st, I can bring out all things eggnog🙌🏻👍🏻🙌🏻👍🏻. This smoothie was delicious, nutritious and kid approved! 💃 Here’s what’s inside:
.
.
2 scoops Orgain vanilla protein
I handful spinach
1 cup (about) Trader Joe’s almond nog
1 scoop collagen
1 tsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp cinnamon
.
.
This smoothie definitely hit the spot. Now that I am fueled, I can finish my chores, hit the gym and then pull out the rest of our Christmas decorations so we are all ready to set them up as a family tonight. It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Let’s talk a minute about inflammation. Being gluten intolerant I know only too well how certain foods can damage your system. For me, I avoid wheat, rye and barley. Discovering my gluten intolerance was really what kick started me on my fitness journey. I began researching different foods and supplements and their holistic benefits. For me, I find that my body responds best when I embrace a more paleo type diet. The paleo mentality works well for me because I already need to avoid most grains, so filling myself up on meat and veggies is fine by me. I would definitely not consider myself strict paleo, though I applaud others who are, this is just the “diet” that I most identify with. *
Now, what does all this have to do with inflammation. If you notice, the majority of the foods on the above list are not paleo friendly. Wheat, dairy, fried food, soda, casein (a slow burning protein from dairy). All inflammatory foods! I definitely did not abide by my diet for the holiday and not only do I have my typical rashes #glutenintolerance , but I feel so fluffy! Bloating, dry skin, rashes, headaches, weight gain, allergies and fatigue-all symptoms of inflammation. So, though I enjoyed my turkey day, and I enjoyed my family getaway, I am SOOO happy to be back home and back in our routine. *
Tomorrow, I am looking forward to my spinach smoothie for breakfast, my pistachios for snacks and a delicious salad for dinner. Anti inflammatory foods to the rescue!!!

This will be my saving grace this holiday season. Just like all things pumpkin dominate my Halloween and Thanksgiving, all things eggnog fill my lil’ heart with joy during Christmas. Problem: eggnog is super high in sugar and fat! Enter in this bad boy from @traderjoes. This almond eggnog has the same delicious taste as eggnog with minimal fat, sugar and calories. While I wouldn’t suggest you replacing water for eggnog, this baby is going to help me enjoy the holidays without adding to my waistline! I see some delicious smoothies in my future...

Sometimes you eat clean and healthy all day, and other times you wake up from a nap and have a bowl of berry kix cereal 🤷🏼‍♀️. I thought I might try to balance out my cereal with a delicious salad. After all, a girl needs her nutrients. Spinach with purple onion, pomegranate seeds, sunflower seeds, carrots, broccoli and craisins topped with poppy seed dressing. And I shared it with my son too! Win, win, win!

We’ve all been there. You start a workout and then 5 minutes later become tired and frustrated because “it’s harder than it looks” or “the weight is too heavy” or “I can’t move like that”. There is no shame in thinking, saying or feeling like any of the above statements. Like I said, we’ve all been there. But don’t let those thoughts and feelings deter you. To the person inside all of us that has these feelings and thoughts, here is what I have to say: .
.
It’s supposed to be hard. It’s supposed to push you and challenge you into being something better than you were before. .
.
If you can’t lift heavy right now, don’t worry, start low and work your way up. 🏋️ .
.

It doesn’t matter how you look when you move, just as long as you are having fun. 💃😊 .
.
Lifting weights, running, dancing or any other fitness activity doesn’t just get easier, it is YOU who gets stronger. So get some rest tonight my fit fam, tomorrow is a new week, a new day and a new opportunity to become stronger . 💪🏻

Does anyone else feel like this month is flying by? I have this unwritten rule that I must cease and desist all things pumpkin after Thanksgiving. Pumpkin, in our house, dominates the months of October and November. So come December, I feel like it’s time to start a new and make way for some new traditions and ingredients. With that in mind, I only have a few more short weeks to enjoy all things pumpkin. I have a few recipes up my sleeve, but most of them only require a small portion of one can of pumpkin, and I have loads of the stuff on hand! So, what are some of your favorite healthy pumpkin recipes? Comment below 👇🏻 and let me know! I would be glad to have some new fresh ideas to try out. ☺️

I love this stuff!!! It makes my protein cookies taste even MORE amazing! I just add about a tablespoon and it really ups the “wow” of my cookies. And with 0 calories and 0 sugar, there is nothing to worry about! I am telling you my friends, it’s little healthy treats and cheats like this that make eating clean SOOOOO much easier. Happy Friday my friends!

1000 followers! Oh my goodness, I can’t believe it! When I was toying with the idea earlier this year of starting an Instagram account dedicated to the fitness aspect of my life, I never realized the awesome journey it would take me on. Seven months ago I was so nervous. I was afraid to put myself out there, worried that I didn’t know enough or wasn’t good enough to do something like this. But in these last few months I have come to the realization that it is not me who is doing the inspiring, it is all of you! Your motivational quotes, your awesome action shots 💃 and delicious recipes have given me an even deeper appreciation and love for all things fitness. I love checking my feed and seeing all your wonderful, inspirational posts. And I LOVE that I have been able to meet so many new friends from all around the world 🌎 because I decided to take this leap.

So, in honor of the occasion, I am thinking it is time to change it up and do something a little different. I have something special planned, so stay tuned the next few days. Something fun is coming up and it’s going to be a real treat! 😉

So grateful for such wonderful friends who take time out of their days to help me figure out how to take care of my babies. Whether they are on the other side of this country or even out of the country 🇩🇪, my sweet friends made time for me. I️ am the luckiest person alive! Going to be burning thieves constantly the next couple of days to rid this house of germs, and will be using some blends on my babies feet and backs to help their little bodies get over this bug, I️ got this! 👍🏻🙌🏻👊🏻

Anyone try these before??? I have been a little MIA these last few days because my kids keep getting sick! I swear, with 4 kids we are like a revolving door 🚪 for all viruses 😷. It has hit my two little ones especially hard, their little immune systems are not up to snuff yet I guess. Because they have been feeling under the weather, their appetites have also not been the best. So, I wanted to get them something that would feel good on their little throats, something that would be appetizing for them and something that wouldn’t have a bunch of added sugar. That’s when I found these babies. There are 5 ingredients, no added sugar, all whole fruits and they have carrots in them 🥕! My little guy already had two! 🙌🏻👍🏻🙌🏻👍🏻🙌🏻
I am PRAYING 🙏 that we are almost done with this batch or bugs, but until then, I will continue to try and find whole natural yummies for my cuties, anything that will help their little bodies fight off these bugs! Do you have any tips and tricks for sick kiddos??? Sharing is caring my friends 👇🏻. Let me know your thoughts! 😘

Worked on my “hang power snatch” today. Just stuck with the 45 pound bar as this is a new move for me and I am a stickler on perfecting form before increasing weight. My first few snatches are pretty good but near the end I start muscling the bar up a bit. This was after we had done three rounds of 7 burpees and chest to bars, 50 air squats and then 10 power snatches. Could have used a bit more power near the end but I was starting to get a bit fatigued. All in all I am happy with how I did. My friends, work on form FIRST before increasing weight. It is so much better to perfect form and protect your body before you try to add more weight. Always, always, always protect and perfect! Happy lifting! .

I couldn’t have said it better myself. This 👆🏻, right here, is totally and completely my mantra. I am most definitely printing this out and framing for me to look at daily. Think positive, worry less, dance more, love often and be happy my fit friends! .

Look what I finally found! I have been searching for this seasonal Halo Top flavor since I first saw it on Instagram. It definitely did not disappoint 👍🏻. Has anyone actually read the nutritional label on the back? It split this itty bitty thing into 4 servings...well in my opinion that is much more of a SUGGESTION rather than requirement😂. This girl 🙋🏼, definitely is not a light weight when it comes to ice cream consumption. .

Look at my delicious pumpkin spice smoothie! Sooooooo gooooood! I FINALLY got my hands at some @drinkorgain pumpkin spice protein, and then I added I scoop almond butter, collagen, spinach, almond milk and a dash of pumpkin pie spice, 👍🏻. Don’t be afraid of green smoothies, my friends. The added spinach changed the color, but not the flavor. Try it out! It’s a great way to add more veggies into your diet.

Having a little trouble staving off the sugar cravings with all the Halloween candy surrounding you? Try these babies on for size, pumpkin protein cookies! One of my FAVORITE healthy cheats, these cookies are delicious, packed with protein, have no added sugar and are gluten free!!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Wanna know the recipe?? Here’s how I made them:

2 scoops (21g) Orgain pumpkin spice protein powder
2 tb all natural PB
1/2 tsp baking powder
Dash of cinnamon
Dash of pumpkin pie spice
Vanilla (about 1tsp)
And then just drizzle in water until it blends to cookie dough consistency.

Bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes and then enjoy!

Happy eating 🍪 .

Look at this beautiful rose my son picked me! It totally highlights my beautiful turquoise light-n-tight capris from @zyiaactive. Even in this beautiful fall weather, it is nice to see pops of spring colors here and there.

Worked on shoulders and back today. Guys, pull-ups are the worst! But, I am sticking with them, I am determined to triumph, and one day I will be able to ditch the band and attack those bad boys on my own! I think we all have a tendency, when working out, to spend our time doing the things we are good at, when in reality it is those areas or movements that are a challenge for us that we need to focus our energy on. For me, I struggle with pull-ups, I hate them. So, I do them every day. Sometimes twice a day if I am teaching. I am not perfect, but am working toward perfection and I know my hard work will pay off in the end. Go workout, do what you love, but spend some time on those movements or workouts that you hate. I promise it will make you an all around better athlete. Who knows, maybe next year pull-ups will be my favorite! 🤷🏼‍♀️

Today’s lunch! Delicious chicken and smoked chicken spinach salad with cucumbers, carrots, purple onion, craisins and chia seeds. I honestly almost didn’t make a salad for lunch today. I am a little behind on my chores, trying to play catch up from our busy weekend, but I am so glad I did! This was such a delicious combination and I know if I don’t eat a salad now, I won’t have a chance to get in all my veggies that I need today. Hope you are all beating those Monday blues, get out, work out, eat clean and have an awesome day!

Anyone know what these babies are?? Hints: they have a high fiber content, lots of vitamin C for an immunity boost, niacin for an energy lift and are used to make all the famous Mexican green sauces. Any takers??

This gives me all the feels ❤️❤️❤️. I am not here to be average. I am here to be better than average. I am here to push myself, push my limits and set them higher than I ever thought possible. I am here to inspire. I am here to show my children how to not just be, but how to truly live. I am here to do better, feel better and be better. What are you here for?

I couldn’t resist, I had to try one on! If you missed it, I did my first reveal video 🎉 (check out my stories), and opened up all my new @zyiaactive products I just got from @zyiaactive.andi and I love them! Here I am wearing the black camo capris, the black grid bra and the copper charged tank. Seriously awesome! I am SUPER picky with my workout wear guys, I typically only buy lululemon, but I will most definitely be adding more from this company to my wardrobe. I love every piece! 😍

Chaturanga, or the yoga push-up, is another one of my favorite yoga moves. My triceps have always been a challenge for me so I love the opportunity that this move presents for me to not only strengthen my triceps and arms but my core as well. It is a very simple move to implement, I use it in almost all of my classes. Sometimes we use it as a transition from a plank into down dog (the Sanskrit is too long to type and I don’t think I can spell it 😂), or we just isolate the movement to work on our arm and core strength. Make sure when doing this movement that you keep your arms close to your body and your elbows pointed straight behind you otherwise you are just doing a regular pushup. Namaste fit fam!
