Stop hitting the snooze button

Breaking old habits are hard! For me it is hitting the snooze button 😴! I love my sleep and could just lay in bed go back to sleep and hit the snooze button several times, which normally makes me wake up grumpy. Not hitting the snooze makes me  happier...not in the moment (duh🤪) but if you wake up and JUST take action it will turn your day completely around! 

The first time you open your eyes in the morning jump up! Say I’m ready! I’m ready! I’m ready! and conquer your day like a freaking bull!! Because I promise you hitting that snooze button does nothing for ya! 

And if you’re still struggling, use the #5secondrule 5️⃣4️⃣3️⃣2️⃣1️⃣🚀 and take action! 

Here's a snippet for more inspiration: 

“How you wake up each day and your morning routine (or lack thereof) dramatically affects your levels of success in every single area of your life. Focused, productive, successful mornings generate focused, productive, successful days—which inevitably create a successful life—in the same way that unfocused, unproductive, and mediocre mornings generate unfocused, unproductive, and mediocre days, and ultimately a mediocre quality of life. By simply changing the way you wake up in the morning, you can transform any area of your life, faster than you ever thought possible.”

Imagine what all is possible if you can wake up without the snooze button and start your day productive -- how would that make you feel?

My tips when you are on the go with kids

When you are a mom, your schedule is ALWAYS BUSY. And, sometimes its hard to stay on track with your health and wellness goals when you feel like you are always on the go especially if you have kids in tow.

Here are some of my tricks and thought I’d share: 

1. Bring food! Things lower in sugar so your kids don’t get this crazy amount of energy and nowhere to run it off. 

2. Bring small trinkets for them to play with. 

3. Engage with them and get your head out of your phone 🤭 I’m guilty here too but I notice SOMETIMES when my kids are acting out they just want some attention. 

4. Play games like I spy or tell me a secret. Sometimes we play I spy for a good hour and most of that time is guessing for things that aren’t even in the room. 😂

5. Let them dress themselves and don't freak out about it. If they want to stroll up as Spiderman, let them go for it (as long as they are decent) let them express themselves.

Positive Self Talk is KEY!

We all struggle! We all sometimes just need that extra reminder of why we started so we continue to push forward! We look at others thinking, "wish I was like that" or "man I wish I had her.." Yup!! I still do it to this day! We will ALWAYS be our own worst enemy!

We beat ourselves up way too much and I'm here today to tell you to STAAAP! I still have cellulite! I still want different things for my body but something I've learned is to embrace the change! Love the fact that you love yourself enough to put in the work and start focusing on what you can control and the first thing I want you to control is.........

The way you speak to yourself! ONLY positive self-talk because how you talk to yourself becomes your reality!

Tell the negative committee inside your brain to sit down and shut up.....Because YOU will always be the ONLY person that stands in your own way!!!

This is how I talk to myself and thoughts I’d share how I move myself forward. Fuel your brain with the positivity.💖 You have that power😘

Whatever your health goal is -- IT IS POSSIBLE

Taking a morning selfie for our accountability group and this is what I get🤣 I’ll take it! 🙄

Last night checking in on my challengers I heard some amazing transformations..

”I’m down 30 pounds in 2 months and my husband is down 30 pounds too.”

“I’m so glad I stuck with these shakes it really does help my cravings and keeps me full!” 

“I decided to take back control of me and get off meds. I just wasn’t feeling like myself and knew I had to work on me! One full week in and I’m already feeling better!”

I would be lying if I said I became a coach to help hold me accountable on my own fitness journey. Truth is, I knew I had a gift I NEEDED to pay forward. It was my driving force since day one. But you bet your booty THEY do keep me on my toes. They make we want to show up in a way for myself I never thought possible. Ladies-THANK YOU! Thank you for putting your trust in me! You simply make me want to be better! 

If you are ready to step up and create your own transformation, I want to help you, support you, and hold you accountable to meet your goals. Just imagine where you could be in 1 month, in 3 months, in 6 months, in one year.... whatever your goal is -- IT IS POSSIBLE.

Reason 100000 why fitness should be at the center of our homes.

”Mommy, Me and Teddy are ready to workout!” 😭 

Reason 100000 why fitness should be at the center of our homes.

I understand going to the gym and having that quiet time is nice, the problem is that's a time commitment. It's...I need a babysitter commitment. It’s...I need to spend more money commitment.

I spend $99 for a FULL year (I spend more getting my hair done in one sitting) A FULL year where I get access to over 700+ workouts, 10+ super trainers (yes something for everyone including kids), annnnnnnd a healthy cooking show! I legit never get bored!

My commitment every day is 30 minutes. 30 minutes of pressing play on my workout where I follow my super trainer. That’s it.

My all new Momma You MATTER group is starting up! Where we spend 30 mins a day on you! I’ll share how I keep my energy up being a momma of 3 with healthy nutrition not only for you but for the full family. Interested...hit reply or click the button below!

I started 15 years ago...

It’s crazy to think that15 years ago I started doing at home workouts. They’ve been with me through college, living at the beach in the summertime (who remembers slim and 6), working full time, being postpartum (2 c-sections), competing in a bikini competition to now being a SAHM to three kids.

Every stage of life I always knew exactly where to turn and I turned that into my passion for helping others exist at the stage of life they are in. It’s crazy to think this was where I’ve was being led the whole time. I just had to open my eyes to see it. (this might be you)

I found that thing that wasn’t complicated and always fits into my crazy busy schedule and in my eyes, it is the full package. Fitness + nutrition + support = success! I like to call it the Amazon Prime of the fitness industry! 😜

I have to say the coolest part is watching the people you inspire in the process. Toby wouldn’t have thought twice about jumping beside me back in the day. Now he’s the one dragging me out of bed.

So many coaches come into this business worried about being judged. I stopped that fear and I started worrying those lives not being changed, the ones that need it so badly, or the coach that wants to be a stay at home mom and work a business that she believes in.

Today I can't help but to feel a little nostalgic as my husband had a bright ass light in my face to wake me to workout and was creating his own videos. 🤣 It just makes my heart so happy to know what consistency and self-belief can actually do!

What was the first workout program you ever tried? Share below! ❤️

50964948_10100116635724119_2848566123392139264_o.jpg

I see you! And, I am proud of you!

53500035_10100122766827339_5071315980878086144_n.jpg

I see you momma! 

You are tired! 
You feel like the world is against you!
You feel like your failing as a mother!
You constantly question yourself if you're doing enough! IF you are enough! 

But each day you wake up with a loving & thankful heart. Nobody told you how hard it would be, they just promised you it would be worth it and boy were they right. 💖

Being a mommy is the best job in the world. Just never forget they need YOU to be the BEST YOU and in order for YOU to be the best YOU...YOU have to do YOU.

See how the word YOU comes up a lot! 

Find your outlet.
Find positive people!

Spend just 30 min a day on yourself. Release that stress and overwhelming feeling you feel. Quit worrying about what others think. The only thing that matters is when you lay down at night and YOU ARE proud of the type of mother you are. 

So when you feel bad for spending that little bit of money on yourself...ask yourself, "How could this affect my family if I started to feel like the best version of me!” 

And PS: YOU ARE ENOUGH! 👊🏼

THIS made such an impact on my eczema

54277888_10100124766734509_3917574326496264192_n (1).jpg

Years ago, I suffered from eczema so bad I couldn't even bend my fingers without them cracking and bleeding. I went to several different dermatologists and they prescribed me steroid cream after steroid cream and gave me the advice of ”Just try not to wash your hands so much!” 

Awesome advice for a first-time mom #notsomuch

Nothing worked! Plus those creams burnnnnnnnned putting them on my cracked hands. 😭 I was embarrassed and couldn’t even wear my wedding ring because my hands were so swollen.

After I had my daughter I knew some things needed to change and my diet was one of those things. I could eat like a toddler and still can, (give me all the French fries and chicken nuggets), my energy sucked and I was crazy busy working, while never seeing my husband and raising our daughter.

Insert this shake! Even though it’s only been about 5 years since I’ve been drinking you consistently my eczema has disappeared, my energy is better now than in my 20s. It replaces my multivitamin, helps with cravings, digestion, bloating and is equivalent to 5 large salads (to list a few things)

Sometimes I feel we forget that our energy, our breakouts, how our skin looks and feels is more of an inside job. Today do your research. Not all shakes are created equal. Just something to keep in the mind-Our world is not protein deficient we’re nutrient deficient and that’s why we’re different. 💕

Keep Moving Forward - Reminders for your every day!

36388680_670293379969969_2411352321108738048_n.jpg

Today I was reminded of a few things: 
1. Don’t wait on others for what you want to do! 👊🏼You’ll usually end up disappointed! If you want something to happen and NOTHING is moving forward OWN your power and JUST DO IT!#createyourownhappiness 

2. Do what works! It might not necessarily be what you want ...But, just do what simply works, own the fudge out of it and realize what you always come back too! For me, this is at home workouts! Busy college student working full time to now a SAHM. I learned at an early age I NEEDED to work on me and here I am 15 years later still doing the darn thing! 

3. Always take selfies. We look at ourselves every single day it’s hard to tell if we’ve made progress because let’s face it -- WE are our own worst critic. Sure we can tell if our clothes are getting looser but looking back on how far you’ve come somedays might be all the motivation you need to push forward! 👊🏼

4. If your circle of friends doesn’t make you feel good about yourself it’s time to upgrade baby! Life is to short to surround yourself with people that weigh you down! 💝

Apply this to your own life!
Create your own happiness!
Stop waiting around & let’s all stop over complicating EVERYTHING! 👊🏼🙌🏼

My Top Tips for Successful Morning Routines

48427335_800000193665953_5891366512043753472_n.jpg

This is the type of mindset you need to create for yourself! This is your life! You want to be HEALTHY and active...therefore it NEEDS to become apart of your daily routine.

  1. Understand the difference between I can’t and I don’t want too. Mornings for me are best to workout especially with having 3 kids. The day passes us by too quickly and getting it out of the way first thing in the morning also sets the tone for the rest of the day and fewer excuses creep up. Mornings are not my JAM! I would rather sleep in but I know how it makes me feel when I start my day off on a good note.

  2. Be committed to a “certain” allotted time. Example for me, I’m a 30-minute girl. Get me in and get me out. I know I can carve out 30 minutes in my day. If it's a new workout program that is longer than 30 minute I ask myself if I want that type of commitment and what are my goals.

  3. Resistance - You will fight with yourself. You will talk yourself out of it. This is where you need to remind yourself that you hold the power and you can push past this type of talk from yourself.

  4. Don’t go longer than 3 days without working out. This will help you get out of the mindset that you need to always start over.

  5. Think about WHY your health matters and on days you don’t want to remember why you matter.
