Today my littlest man turns 22 months. I can NOT believe how fast the time has gone, and am shocked that he is almost 2 years old! The biggest lesson I have learned since becoming a mommy, is that I am not in charge anymore. Like....I have no say. This little ma`n standing under 3 feet tall totally runs the show. I am exaggerating a little....but it has been a huge adjustment for me. I have always been a workaholic. I would teach at least 7 group exercise classes a week, personal train 3-4 clients....all while working a full time job. After Brady came, that schedule has drastically changed. This year I decided to throw a brand new job into the mix of mommy hood....and BAM! I have major mom guilt. I have to put so many more hours into the work week, and spend lots of my evenings at events or catching up on phone calls and e-mails. I am determined to dedicate the time I am home with my family. Undivided attention to Choo choos, cars and Hulk Smash. I make sure there is a healthy meal on the table for dinner each night, and that no matter what, we sit down together to eat. The one thing I have always promised myself it that I would not let my fitness and workout regimen go. Sure, I am only teaching 3 classes a week now, and personal training has gone out the window....but I want to take care of myself. For ME. I am a huge believer in self care. I know that if I can't take care of myself, I can't help anyone else. I was NEVER a fan of video workouts. I can 100% say I thought working out at home did not work. Mind you, I have an extensive background in health and fitness, and know it can work.....but home workouts had a stigma to me. I started using an online program....and fell in love. Even Eric was skeptical at first. He asked me "why I needed someone else to write my workouts when I was a fitness expert?". I have asked myself that same questions 100,000 times. Here is my answer. It is so nice to just press play. And do it. No stop watch, no counting, no trying to figure out which body group I worked yesterday and what I will have time to do tomorrow. It is there. All of it (even nutrition). I get to totally check out for 30 minutes. Someone telling me what to do. I get to listen to my music and decompress. And it is amazing. So I decided to take my love to the next level and become a coach myself. Why not? I miss more than anything the family of a fitness community. I am ready to pull my family back together and start an amazing journey. Are you ready to do this? Join me! Starting February 11th, I am taking on my first virtual bootcamp group! You get meal plans, workouts, accountability, support and best part (duh) me as your coach! What are you waiting for? Interested? Click the link (I WANT TO LEARN MORE) below for more information!

I am not exaggerating when I say it works. It is worth it and it works. It definitely takes work, and I am fortunate to add lots of variety into my workout routines. I am not a big sharer of progress pictures (because ew look at them....ha. I am not a #selfie fan), but it goes to show that pressing play can be the spark you need to make a change.
I AM A 30-SOMETHING, FOOD-LOVING, FITNESS-OBSESSED, DIY-ING, WORK-A-HOLIC, MOMMY, DOGGY MOMMY & AND WIFEY.....THAT DECIDED TO SHARE MY LIFE WITH YOU. WELCOME AND ENJOY!
