ONE year 😊 I couldn’t help myself! One of my favorite online BOOcamps and one of my FAVORITE workout tanks! Ha! It was actually one of the best reminders.... THIS past year has by far the healthiest year of my life! I bounced back from my third c-section, I found priorities in the right things, I got into the best shape of my life and I know exactly how to help others do the same!
TIRED MAMA - I get it!!! You want to feel good but you are running ragged for everyone else, you have a job, a home and a husband to keep! Oh and the kids! You want to take care of you but you can’t possibly get to the gym more time away from those babes. You feel tired in your clothes, body and mind! This is not really what you hoped Motherhood was cracked up for! You are still in your postpartum jeans and your babe is almost a year! You are tired!
I get it! Three babes within three years, full time working Mom… I was stuck in every sense of the word. I had no time, no energy and felt as though I would never feel like me or fit in my clothes again!
So, what did I do? I started working out at home with 30-minute, effective workouts. I learned how to meal prep for the entire week, and joined an online accountability and support group.I used to spend hours at the gym and really get zero results… I no longer need that afternoon nap, and I can be the wife and mother my husband and kids deserve.
What's in it for you? 🤷‍♀️ * Accountability in a supportive, positive, judgment-free environment. * An entire YEAR of online streaming of effective workouts done at home---everything from yoga to dancing to boot camps to old school aerobics! Most workouts are 30 minutes or LESS and there is something for EVERYONE at EVERY fitness level. * A nutrition guide that teaches what and how much to eat, along with my sample meal plans, grocery lists, recipes and meal prep tips & tricks. * A 30 day supply of a SUPERFOOD shake that will help you in every area of life!! Oh and your kids will LOVE too!! * One-on-one Coach support from me, every step of the way (totally the best part 😉 ) * FREE BONUS OFFER-→A Halloween tank!!

I always knew I’d be a mom, but I had no clue that motherhood would be as awesome as it is ❤️
I can’t even tell you how great it is to have my kiddos back in my arms after our ten days away! Ask @cheftwallace how many strangers I showed pictures of our children to 🤣
Elliot got two teeth and learned how to wave while we were gone so I basically can never leave him again 😭💙
Kenley, on the other hand, got recognized multiple times by her teacher and created a new tradition in her classroom of celebrating friends for the nice/helpful/kind things they do and I am so over the moon proud of her! She has the best soul ✨

Thankful everyday that I get to spend everyday with this little man. Even when he interrupts a video chat or a phone call.... I'm grateful that my work keeps me around him so he can interrupt.

One year ago tomorrow 😭I’m feeling every emotion there is. Excited because it’s such a huge milestone, but my heart aches a little knowing that this will be the last first birthday we’ll celebrate. The last first tooth, the last newborn snuggle. So many fun firsts to come but how are we here?! 😩 Just a reminder to soak it all up Mama’s because these first years are over in a blink of an eye. 💛
