SAHM Work…I need Ideas!

We are back in the flatland and back to life as usual. Anxiously awaiting our next visit up north (in July). My clients resume tonight and I cannot wait to get back into the gym! I am ready to a good weight lifting workout. I always feel so motivated after leaving the gym. It helps…

Limitless

Oh, what an adventurous two weeks it has been! Two weeks full of hiking, family, nature, and thinking time. Time to reset and refresh. Time to set some goals and reflect on life.  My daughter (who is 2) and I have been doing a lot of hiking these past two weeks and it has given…

Wanderlust

Wanderluster: Collector of experiences, not things. As May begins to wind down and June is upon us in a just a few short sleeps, I have been thinking about he things I want to do with this next month. It is going to be a little bit of a crazy one since baby and I…

My Dirty Laundry

I am really good at talking about what I am good at. My last post, Let Me Intimidate You, focused on child nutrition. Something I am very passionate about. I can go on for hours talking about kids’ nutrition. It is easy for me. I am good at nutrition and it is a good habit….

On staying fit and being pregnant

As soon as people realize you are pregnant, the questions begin to fly. There is no way around the oncoming inquires from family, friends, and strangers! “What is the gender?”, ‘Due Date?’, ‘are you working out?’, ‘are you sick?’, and on and on and on! So here is the low down on my pregnancy so…

Welp, I gained 3 pounds.

Well, I have to say, my May goals are getting crushed. My motivation has been exceptional. I have been getting out for walks on the road, great home workouts and client workouts, and I have been expanding my knowledge through reading. Except for the fact that I have gained almost 3 pounds, my cravings are…

Step Forward

For me, this week is all about stepping out of my comfort zone. As a stay at home mom and trainer, it is very easy to get into routine and never push myself. However, I find that when I do step out of my box I am more excited and driven. Even if whatever I…

Motivated in May

It is 4:40 a.m. and my alarm is ringing. Starting off a new day for me. The last thing I want to do is get out of bed but I do it. I have to be at the gym soon to train a client then back home before baby wakes. Every single time when I…

‘Fit’ is not just Physical

It is important to do the thing that makes you uneasy. The thing that gives you little rush, a little adrenaline. Doing things that are outside of your comfort zone allows you to grow as a person. It allows you to become stronger physically and more importantly, mentally. As a Fitness trainer, most people think…
