Keeping up with my fitness routine is one of my top priorities during pregnancy. Not only does it keep me + baby healthy, it helps me combat that constant fatigue and makes me feel STRONG despite all the crazy pregnancy symptoms wearing me down. . I am love love loving all the weightlifting in this program. I gotta keep my arms strong to carry around an almost 30lb toddler and a strong back is necessary to balance out my soon to be growing bump. And there’s nothing like throwing some weights around to make you feel like a bad ass mom. . I’ve still got spots open to join me this month on my #missionmombod journey. Whether you’re an expecting mama or a veteran, making time for your health is so important for our overall well being. All you gotta do is shoot me a DM so we can chat. 💪🏼✨ . . . . . . #pregnancy #fitpregnancy #pumpthebump #fitpreggo #babybelly #firsttrimester #bunintheoven #postpartum #postpartumjourney #fitmomsofig #pregnantbelly #postpartumfitness #momswholift #fitmama #babyonboard #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

The joys of the first trimester. Some days I feel great and normal and other days I feel like complete 💩. Today was one of those days. I totally planned on making today a rest day, but hubs came home from work and said he’d take little man out with him on his run so I can have some alone time. #thanksbabe So now I’m pushing past my excuses (chugging some mommy ⚡️ fuel) and squeezing in a late workout since I’ll have some uninterrupted time. It may not be my best, but at least I got it done. . It’s okay if every day isn’t perfect. What matters is that you did something to better yourself from yesterday. How did you guys crush your Monday? . . . . . . #pregnancy #fitpregnancy #pumpthebump #fitpreggo #babybelly #firsttrimester #bunintheoven #postpartum #postpartumjourney #fitmomsofig #pregnantbelly #postpartumfitness #momswholift #fitmama #babyonboard #gritngracefitness #teamgritngrace

It’s DAY 👆🏼 of my new lifting + hiit program! [Yes, I am still doing it while growing this bun in the oven.] . BUT there won’t be any before photos or measurements this time. Obviously my focus isn’t getting lean and losing weight over the next 8 weeks. My goals are to... ✨ build muscle ✨ gain healthy pregnancy weight ✨ never miss a workout ✨ listen to my body and modify as needed ✨ stick with my mindful eating plan . No crazy weight loss or 6 pack ab goals over here. Just a preggo mama trying to stay as healthy as possible while chasing a toddler and growing a healthy new babe. 4 workouts a week + a flexible meal plan WITH a cheat day is 💯 perfect for what I need right now. #totallydoable . So here’s to a brand new type of DAY ONE. I can’t wait to share this new journey with you guys. 💪🏼💗 . . . . . . . #pregnancy #fitpregnancy #pumpthebump #fitpreggo #babybelly #firsttrimester #bunintheoven #postpartum #postpartumjourney #fitmomsofig #pregnantbelly #postpartumfitness #momswholift #fitmama #babyonboard #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

Nothing like a fresh workout outfit to get you in the mood to get your sweat on. 😍😅 I get asked all the time where I buy my workout clothes, and by far my favorite places to shop are @fourathletics (duh) and @fabletics. As a girl who lives in gym clothes, I need pieces that are affordable, comfortable, but still stylish...and these definitely deliver. 💙 Follow the link in my bio to snag your own FA gear and save some 💸 with my special code. What’s your favorite place to shop for workout clothes?👇🏼 . . . . . . #fourathletics #fourathleticsambassador #fabletics #postpartum #takebackpostpartum #fitmom #bodyafterbaby #strongnotskinny #girlswholift #cleaneats #tiuflorida #fitnessjourney #weightloss #floridamom #boymomlife #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

I used to be a huge disbeliever in home workouts. I get it. There was no way I was going to get the same results at home that I did spending an hour in the gym every day. . But then I became a mom. And getting out the door in a timely manner and making it to a class on time and worrying about child care just wasn’t happening. So I had no other option. . And ya know what? These home workouts that I scoffed at once upon a time helped me lose 20+ pounds postpartum. Leaning in to my accountability group gave me a virtual community to support me along the way. And my virtual gym provided me with hundreds of workouts at my fingertips so I never get bored. . If this once non believer can do it, so can you. There’s still time to get started with me on the 16th with 4 workouts a week, 30-40 minutes a day. I’ve got five spots open for VIP ladies. Shoot me a DM to claim yours. 💪🏼✨ . . . . . . #postpartum #bodyafterbaby #strongnotskinny #tiu #cleaneating #tiuteam #girlswholift #cleaneats #bbgmoms #iifym #fitgirls #tiuflorida #fitnessjourney #weightloss #floridamom #boymomlife #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

First workout in almost 3 weeks. 🙊 Getting sick [TWICE] and travel threw me way off. Anyone else feel like they suffer from travel hangover and need time to recover?? Anywho, I chugged my liquid gold ✨ mommy fuel and pushed play for the first time in forever. And it felt DANG GOOD. . I can’t tell you how pumped I am for this new program that’s only 30 minutes a day, 4 days a week. 💪🏼 Totally doable for my crazy #momlife right now. . Who else started their week off the right way? Happy Monday, y’all! . . . . . . #mama #momsofinstagram #littleandbrave #mother #momtogs #pregnancy #maternity #clickinmoms #ig_motherhood #momblogger #mommylife #mommyblogger #vscomom #postpartum #boymom #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

It wasn’t my longest or my fastest...but took advantage of the clouds and got some mileage in this morning between clients! On days when I am really not feeling it and I’m just tired and want to skip my workout, my amazing team motivates me to better myself and get it done. This team was one of the best decisions I ever made. They inspire me and push me to be the best version of myself. They remind me to not only do my workouts, but eat right, and make sure I fill my cup with some personal development each day. If you are looking for a tribe like this, a group that literally wants you to be your best, I have a special invitation for you. This Wednesday we have a no obligation, completely free opportunity to look into the world of coaching. It provides lots of insight into what we do as coaches and how we have grown to become friends during this business. If you are interested in joining, just to see what it’s all about, just let me know! ❤️ #runmamarun #runlikeamother #motherrunner #h2ohmyquads #hshive #honeystinger #theoriginalenergywaffle #stingorbeestung #beestmode #coachlife #findyourhappy #mytribe #lifechanging #runnershigh #teamgritngrace #sweatyband #flipbelt #simplehydration

Here we are again why not soak it up and take as many photos that you can of the friends that you've made on your journey. Three years ago this month I said yes. Three years ago I chose to make a change in my own life. Three years ago I stopped telling myself how disgusted I was with my post pregnancy body. Three years ago I would have never thought I would be in this beautiful city called Indianapolis. A small town girl who used to never travel outside of PA except for going to the beach in Maryland. If I can make the change I know you can. If you want it bad enough, You can do anything. All you have to do is believe in yourself. If you dont believe in yourself who else is going to? Are you ready to believe??

This isn’t about perfect bodies and 6 pack abs. It’s not about a scroll stopping before + after photos and hitting your goal weight. It’s not about being a perfect version of fit or “skinny” ...this is about so much MORE than that. . This is about REAL women sharing their hearts and their experience, PRAYING we get the chance to help change just ONE other life. It’s about wives, moms, teachers, nurses - all living to their full potential and INSPIRING other women to do the same. It’s about being authentically YOU and showing others that THEY CAN TOO. . Don’t think that because you don’t look like a fitness model or because you are just starting out on your own journey that you can’t inspire and empower others. I am living proof that YOU CAN. I’ve been a coach at my heaviest, my fittest, 9 months pregnant, and all through my postpartum journey. All you need is the WANT TO. I will teach you the how to. . I am looking to mentor FIVE women who are ready to join my tribe and start building their own version of success. Just click the link in my bio. Watch the video. Fill out the form. Let’s chat to see if this can be YOUR vessel for change just like it’s been for me and so many others. Take that leap of faith. What have you got to lose? ✨💪🏼👯‍♀️ . . . . . . #momboss #mompreneur #momsofig #bossbabe #momlife #postpartum #bodyafterbaby #empoweringwomen #lifebydesign #mamabear #floridalife #fitnessmotivation #unitedinmotherhood #boymom #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

Ok peeps...I need your help [again!] . I’m heading out to my big coaching conference in a couple weeks and I need a cute dress for our big celebration the final night. It’s been a looong time since I’ve worn a non maternity or nursing dress, so it feels so weird to dress up and be cute. . What do you think? Left, right, or middle? Or do I need to go shopping?

I think I just found my new soulmate workout, y’all! . ✨ 4 days a week ✨ 30-40 minutes a pop ✨ 8 weeks of unique workouts ✨ a meal plan that focuses on portion controlled clean eating but still leaves room for tacos and wine . COUNT THIS BUSY MAMA IN. . This program isn’t about building a summer body in 21 days, it’s about long term, sustainable results. I’m super excited to have this sneak peak workout automatically loaded into my online workout library (fo’ free!) but even more stoked that I’ll be starting this program next month with VIP access. You can too! Ask me how. 🙌🏼😉 . . . . . . #postpartum #bodyafterbaby #strongnotskinny #tiu #cleaneating #tiuteam #girlswholift #cleaneats #bbgmoms #iifym #fitgirls #tiuflorida #fitnessjourney #weightloss #floridamom #boymomlife #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

I was never the girl who lived for the weekends. I was the girl stuck at work because those were the busy days in restaurants & retail. But these days our Friday are pretty sweet. 💙 I get to make my own hours and Hubby has half days at work and is home by lunch time. 👪 Guess you could say I’m living for the weekends now. . Baby is down for his nap and mama got a shower. 👍🏼 So now it’s time to sip my superfoods, put together this grocery pickup order for tomorrow, and bust out some coaching work. Happy FriYAY y’all! 👯‍♀️✨ . . . . . . #friyay #cheerstotheweekend #tiucommunity #tiugirl #bikiniseries #lgsisters #tiumom #summeready #shareloveinspiresweat #postbabybody #postpartumweightloss #blondegirl #boymomma #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

Sitting down to do some major meal planning today because it’s T minus 3 WEEKS until my big coaching conference in Indy and I want to be looking + feeling my best when I go. ✨💪🏼 Mostly because I know it’s going to be GO GO GO the whole time, and the healthier my body is the more energy I have! . So for the next few weeks I’ll be bumping it up in my workouts and dialing in my nutrition so I can be the best ME for the trip. I’m taking it back to the program that started it all for me (swipe left to see my results) over 2 years ago and I CAN’T WAIT to see how kick butt I’m going to be looking + feeling by the end of another round. . If you want to get in on the action, shoot me a DM and we can chat! 💗 . . . . . . #postpartum #bodyafterbaby #strongnotskinny #tiu #cleaneating #tiuteam #girlswholift #cleaneats #bbgmoms #iifym #fitgirls #tiuflorida #fitnessjourney #weightloss #floridamom #boymomlife #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

Thursday’s are pay days in our coaching world and I just woke up to my biggest paycheck EVER. 🎉🙌🏼 . I had some not so smart spending habits in my early 20s. I used my credit card WAY too often and now I’m paying for it (literally.) 💸 So of course when I stopped working to stay home with the little guy those payments started coming from my hubby’s income. Not how I wanted things to be...but it’s reality. . Anywho, I’m doing a little happy dance because my coaching income from ONE WEEK is enough to cover one of those payments and then some. 👌🏼 It may not seem like much to most, but to me it means making a real difference for myself and my family. . I feel so blessed every morning I get to wake up and do what I do. I cannot wait to see where things go from here. ✨💕 . . . . . . #momhustle #bossbabe #momboss #mompreneur #debtfreejourney #financialfreedom #lifebydesign #motherhoodunplugged #momsofig #savedbygrace #postpartum #boymom #floridalife #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

I remember the first time I had to grab the pants that were a double digit size. I was crushed. I mean, there was NO WAY I needed a size that big. But there I was...standing in the mirror in my size 10 jeans. So defeated. . Flash forward to NOW...13 months postpartum and these shorts are a size 4! 😆 You guys, I couldn’t even wear this size BEFORE baby. #whatthewhat . No 🙅🏼‍♀️ my size DOES NOT define me. But it feels damn good to see all my hard work paying off. Because when you go from the girl who hated trying on jeans to the girl who feels 💯 confident rockin’ a pair of shorts, you deserve to shout yourself out. 👌🏼 . . . . . . #postpartum #bodyafterbaby #strongnotskinny #tiu #cleaneating #tiuteam #girlswholift #cleaneats #bbgmoms #iifym #fitgirls #tiuflorida #fitnessjourney #weightloss #floridamom #boymomlife #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

Remember that scene from Mean Girls where they were all picking apart their bodies in front of the mirror and looked over at Cady waiting for her to do the same? Why is it that the societal norm has always been for women to hate their bodies? It’s something I personally struggled with nearly all my life, especially in my teens and early 20s. The area of my body that I struggled with the most was my thighs. . I always had larger thighs growing up. If you were a softball player like me you probably understand the struggle. I used to compare myself to other girls all the time. I wondered why their thighs looked so slim when they sat down and mine spread out and looked huge. I used to try and sit certain ways to make my thighs look better. I spent so much time focusing on it that I would be completely distracted. It was exhausting. . I wish I could say I’ve completely overcome this, but the truth is every once in a while I still find myself playing the comparison game. The difference is now I know when I am doing it and I am aware of how it affects me. Loving the skin I’m in will always be an inner battle I fight, but I am no longer picking myself apart. I’m learning to accept and love my body just the way it is, bigger thighs and all. . . . . . . #selflove #thickthighssavelives #postpartum #bodyafterbaby #strongnotskinny #tiu #cleaneating #tiuteam #girlswholift #cleaneats #bbgmoms #iifym #fitgirls #tiuflorida #fitnessjourney #weightloss #floridamom #boymomlife #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

I never thought that this would be my life. . I never thought that I’d find a job that I love and doesn’t feel like work. . I never thought I’d get out of the rut of part time retail and restaurant jobs. . I never thought I’d have the opportunity to be a stay at home mom AND earn extra income for my family. . I never thought I’d find the person God was calling me to be by joining a fitness accountability group. . I never thought I’d be helping other women get healthy and learn to love the skin their in. . I never thought I’d find a tribe of women who empower and encourage me every day...online. . I never thought that one tiny leap of faith would lead to all THIS. But here I am. This IS my life. And I am so grateful and blessed. 🙏🏼✨ .

“When you don’t share opportunity you are holding someone’s future captive in your mouth.” . Recently I was reflecting on what my life would be like if my friend hadn’t shared the opportunity of coaching with me. I thought about all the things that would be missing from my life... . ✨ I wouldn’t have met my amazing team of women who I consider sisters. ✨ I wouldn’t be helping other mamas get in shape and learn to love their bodies. ✨ I wouldn’t have the potential to create a life of freedom for my family. ✨ I wouldn’t have reclaimed my faith in the Lord and found what He was calling me to be. ✨ I wouldn’t be in the best shape of my life - physically, mentally, and emotionally. . She would have been keeping all of those things from me! Can you imagine?? THAT is why I am always sharing my love for what I do as a coach. I don’t want to keep ANY of those things from someone who needs them. . I am so THANKFUL and BLESSED that she had the courage to share her love of coaching with me. Maybe it’s time you stopped watching and joined in on the love with us. 💕 . . . . . . #mompreneur #momofboys #wahm #mommylife #postpartum #mamabear #workingmom #momboss #busymom #momsofig #newmom #uniteinmotherhood #lifebydesign #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

Up and at ‘em at 6:30 this morning. 🙌🏼 I’m making moves to restructure the schedule of my day so I can get my workout done before the baby wakes up. It’s amazing how accomplished I already feel and it’s only day 👆🏼! Pressed play on one of my favorite boot camp style workouts and got my butt kicked in only 2️⃣2️⃣ minutes. 💪🏼 I love having the Netflix of fitness at my fingertips so I can choose from hundreds of workouts and find one that fits with my needs. But mostly just super pumped about my new morning routine and what it’s going to help me accomplish with the rest of my day! 😆 . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #postpartumweightloss #postbabybody #motherhood #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #healthymom #boymom #mamabear #strongasamother #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

“Could it be that God is allowing you to experience a a fiery trial in your life right now because He knows that the flames will burn away whatever it is that is holding you captive?” 👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼 I’ve had this quote saved in my phone for a long time. I came across it today, and today in our Virtual Gym we are talking about being THANKFUL for our struggles. #iseeyougod . I definitely have not been without my share of struggles lately. But I know that God is setting them before me so I can experience GROWTH. It’s forcing me to bust out of my safety net. And while that’s super scary for me, I know that it’s been placed before me because some pretty great things are on the other side. . GROW THROUGH WHAT YOU GO THROUGH. Be thankful for the test. What’s holding you captive? What amazing thing is waiting for you when you break free? . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumfitness #lifebydesign #growthmindset #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #motherhood #strongmom #savedbygrace #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

Exercise is my sanity. It’s 30 minutes a day I have just for ME. Even on days when I feel like I’ve lost control over all the craziness around me, it’s the one small thing I have that’s just mine. It’s so easy to get lost in all things motherhood. But mamas, your babies NEED you to make yourself a priority. You need to do something for yourself every day to fill your well. . .

Find your tribe. Love them hard. I have to give this girl a shoutout today. We’ve been friends for years. We’ve done marriage, deployments, babies and everything in between together. But the coolest thing we get to do together is change freaking lives. She took a chance on me when she invited me to join her in this Jesus loving, fitness crushing mission. And I am eternally grateful to her for opening that door for me, because it has changed MY life. The real game changer for me was this COMMUNITY that I was adopted into. This team of warrior women who are committed to living their best lives, providing for their families, and helping women live lives of freedom and joy. The most amazing tribe of women, most of whom I’ve met ONLINE. Find you a friend like @jessicatfischer. Find you a community like ours. And if our tribe sounds like one you want to be a part of, our arms are always open for you to join us. 💗 . . . . . . #findyourtribe #postpartumweightloss #postbabybody #motherhood #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #healthymom #boymom #mamabear #strongasamother #anchoredfitness #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

The last few weeks I’ve been stuck in this RUT. One of those don’t want to do anything, you feel paralyzed type of ruts. I haven’t been working out, eating well, or doing my personal development. I flat out just haven’t been taking care of myself. Then yesterday as I was playing in the backyard with Felix I heard this song by Hillsong United... 🎵 let the devil know not today 🎵 and it struck something in me. I’ve been stuck in this rut because I’ve been letting the enemy keep me there. I’ve been waiting for something to dig me out, but the truth is only 🔹I🔹 can get myself out. I can get out by not throwing myself a pity party, believing in myself, and leaning into the Lord. The change begins with ME. So today I pushed play on a 25 minute workout with a trainer who brings me LIFE. I am spending dedicated time in the Word with my devotional. I am chugging water like a BOSS. Today is the day I find my joy and start filling my cup again. I will no longer be chained down by my excuses and feeling of inadequacy. I am weak made strong. I’m not going anywhere. You will see me rise up again. Just watch. . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #postpartumweightloss #postbabybody #motherhood #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #healthymom #boymom #mamabear #strongasamother #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

Had a minor interruption during my workout today. At least it was a cute one. 😂 [if you saw my stories you know what I’m talking about] Sometimes things happen and you just gotta work around them, including a little toddler running around your workout space. 👶🏼 But I am happy that leg day is DONE and now we can enjoy some lunch and maybe set up the splash pad in the backyard to enjoy this sunshine again. ☀️ Happy FriYAY! . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumweightloss #girlswholift #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #motherhood #momswithmuscle #newmom #fitmom #postbaby #momswholift #strongmom #boymom #missionhotmombod #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

TRUTH - I’ve struggled with food my whole life. 🍦🍩🍕 It’s a battle that at most times I didn’t even realize I was fighting. I would go through these cycles of eating really healthy for a while and then go on a total binging spree. And ya know what? I still do that. 😬 It’s something I’ve never wanted to admit. Especially since I’m a “fitness girl.” I know all the rights things to do. I have all the tools. But I still go through these cycles of following my portioned meal plans for a few weeks and then once I allow myself one treat I can’t stop. And so it goes over and over again. But I am sick of starting over all the time. I’ve realized that even though I know what to do, I still have these emotional ties to food. What I need is a MINDSET change. This is me being real and honest with you guys. I struggle too. A lot. If you’re tired of the diet cycle and ready to break up with your bad relationship with food, I’ve got this new AMAZING tool that I’d love to share with you. Oh yeah, and there’s no calorie counting, no restrictions, and workouts are EXTRA CREDIT. 🙌🏼 There’s even a little sneak peak group where you can get all the details before you decide to dive in. If you’re interested, LET ME KNOW 👇🏼👇🏼 and I can add ya! This is about to change so many lives, including mine. Could yours be one of them? . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #tiumama #postpartumweightloss #postbabybody #motherhood #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #healthymom #boymom #mamabear #strongasamother #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

Back from my week in VA and I am feeling ALLLL the vacay bloat. 😳 Getting back into the swing of things after totally indulging for a week can be overwhelming. I am so THAT GIRL who can stay on track for a few weeks, but once something throws a wrench in my routine it all goes flying out the window. But I am super pumped because I am about to dive into a brand spankin’ new nutrition plan. Why am I so excited about this one in particular? Because it requires NO calorie counting NO points or containers NO food restrictions NO workouts required (though I’ll still be doing my 80DO workouts) Yes, even as a coach I still struggle with my relationship with food.

What started as a way to keep myself accountable to my own health + fitness journey has turned into my passion project. I joined my first challenge group and signed up as a coach simply to get a discount on my superfoods shake. I honestly had no idea what coaching was, but I took a leap of faith and said YES. . Yes to a community of women pushing me to live my best life. . Yes to the freedom to work from home and never miss a moment with my little boy. . Yes to surviving the hardest seasons of life by leaning into my health + fitness. . Yes to helping other women on their journeys simply by sharing my own. . I had no idea that simply saying YES would turn into all this, but here I am. What could saying yes do for your life? . . . . . . #boymom #momofboys #wahm #mommylife #postpartum #mamabear #workingmom #momboss #busymom #momsofig #newmom #uniteinmotherhood #parenting #momlifeisthebestlife #postpartum #11monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

THESE BARS. 😋 You guys, I used to be a total snack bar-aholic. Clif Bars, Quest Bars, Larabars...you name it. I thought I was eating something good for me because they were all marketed as “healthy.” What I didn’t realize is they are packed full of SUGAR so they are basically like a glorified candy bar. 🍫 Well I am SO HAPPY to finally have a snack bar that actually is all it’s cracked up to be! This chocolate peanut butter deliciousness has 10 grams of protein 4 grams of fiber 150 calories 0 trans fat and only 5 grams of sugar! It’s also GLUTEN FREE and has zero artificial junk, only ingredients I can actually pronounce. Did I mention they are freaking delicious?! For real, they taste like those chewy granola bars I used to have as a kid. PERFECT snack for a busy mom like me and I can feel confident I’m putting something GOOD in my body. My only complaint is that they don’t come with more in the box. 😜 If you’re looking for a healthier snack option, drop a 🙋🏼‍♀️ down below and I’ll get you all the deets! . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumweightloss #girlswholift #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #motherhood #momswithmuscle #newmom #fitmom #postbaby #momswholift #strongmom #boymom #missionhotmombod #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #11monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

I could smile and pretend I had an amazing workout this morning. However, that would be a total lie. I allowed myself to eat terribly last evening. I had 2 fun size packs of pb m&ms (my favorite), a few jelly beans, a handful of sweet potatoes chips; now if that doesn't sound bad enough, I also had about 1 1/2 cinnamon buns (they were organic though). I mean if I think about it, it could have been way worse. I'm not going to eat perfect this week and I know that. But I also know I am not allowing that much sugar in my body in one day again. My stomach was off all evening and my workout was crappy this morning. I also slacked in the veggie and fruit department. Today I have a few more veggies packed in my lunch. Some days you just need to take that time off to realize how important food should be used as fuel and not just for satisfaction. I never truly understood how a crappy diet can cause you to be so sluggish. But its true, today, I'm going to be much better with my options.

Tried something new today and squeezed in my workout while Felix was still awake, and he let me get through the whole thing with zero interruptions! 🙌🏼 Hoping we can make this our new routine because it would be a HUGE help in fitting in my daily to-do list. 🤞🏼 we can make it happen again tomorrow! . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #breastfeeding #postpartumweightloss #postbabybody #motherhood #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #normalizebreastfeeding #healthymom #boymom #mamabear #strongasamother #11monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

Going out to dinner with my girl. I'm taking a week off meal prepping and it's so hard to do since I've made a habit of meal prepping for the last 13 weeks. But I'm enjoying this evening taking my girl out for dinner.

Don’t compare your behind the scenes to someone else’s highlight reel. Social media makes it so easy to look at other people’s lives and feel like ours isn’t as good. I’m not as skinny. I’m not as fit. I’m not as wealthy. I’m not as successful. I wish I had her ______. But you know what...behind the photos we all have insecurities, imperfections, and doubt. Everyone is fighting some sort of battle. Instead of playing the comparison game, let’s all turn our attention inward. Each of us has something special, unique, and beautiful. We all have things in our lives to be grateful for. You might just find that you don’t wish you had someone else’s anything at all. . . . . . . #doyouboo #selflovesunday #postpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #postpartumweightloss #postbabybody #fitmom #postbaby #healthymom #boymom #mamabear #strongasamother #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

MYTH - lifting weights will make you bulky. Don’t be scared of lifting, ladies. It won’t make you look like a dude. It will give you strong, sexy arms in those tank tops this summer though. #ladygunsinprogress Today was an upper body workout and I LOVE the feeling of moving some weight around. It’s one of the places I can feel my progress the most, and that to me is so rewarding.

Day 1/21 of my current program is #inthebooks! Even though Felix decided to boycott nap time waaay too soon and I had to cut my workout short, at least I only missed out on a few minutes rather than missing over half and having to makeup for it later. I can’t tell you how much of a weight has been lifted off my shoulders going from hour back to half hour workouts. It’s all about finding what works for you. If you need a little help in that department, I got you girl. 👊🏼 . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #breastfeeding #postpartumweightloss #postbabybody #motherhood #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #healthymom #boymom #mamabear #strongasamother #11monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

Woke up this morning not really feeling my yoga workout. I was craving something that would get my blood flowing and my heart ♥️ pumping. Something to get me out of this rut I’ve been stuck in. . So I decided to lace up my sneakers, chug my plant based ✨ mommy fuel, and press play on my favorite tabata workout from Insanity Max: 30. . One of the beauties of my on demand workout library is I can pick ANY workout I want from over 5️⃣0️⃣ programs. Being a girl who likes to switch things up on a whim, I love having options. 👍🏼 .

Chill Flow yoga is exactly what the doctor ordered today. My body needed the stretch. My mind needed the focus. And the guided meditation on intention at the end was everything I didn’t know I needed. I am by no means a yogi, but this is definitely something I’ll be adding into my weekly routine from now on. Do you guys have a yoga day in your workout routine? If not, I highly recommend it! . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #breastfeeding #postpartumweightloss #postbabybody #motherhood #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #normalizebreastfeeding #healthymom #boymom #mamabear #strongasamother #11monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

So I had this big long post spilling my heart to you guys and now it’s gone. 😩 I’m going to try my best to remember what the heck I said, so here it goes... . It’s time for a little honesty. . The past few weeks I’ve been feeling detached, burnt out, and I’ve lost my joy. So after much consideration (and a chat with MY coach) I’ve decided to stop my 80 day program. Yep. . Basically, it’s just not working for my current season of life. I found myself dreading my workouts. So much of my time and energy in my day was spent trying to fit in these hour long workouts, the timed nutrition was just not realistic for me, and I found myself trying so hard to make myself WANT to do it. . But that is NOT what fitness should be. During our heart to heart, my coach told me that if I’m not enjoying it, I need to stop. And you know what, she’s right. I wouldn’t tell any of my clients to keep doing anything that wasn’t bringing them joy, so why would I not take my own advice? . Some people may see me as a quitter. I hope that’s not the case, but frankly I don’t really care what other people think. This is MY journey and I get to decide where it goes. I am not quitting. Health + fitness will ALWAYS be a priority. I am simply redirecting. I’m just like you trying to figure out what works for my crazy life. Sometimes it takes a little trial and error. Sometimes it takes trying something TWICE before figuring out it just isn’t working. That’s okay. What’s most important is that we are HAPPY on the paths we chose for ourselves. . So if you find yourself feeling like I was, if what you’re doing no longer brings you joy, just STOP. Reevaluate. Redirect. And choose a new path. . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumweightloss #girlswholift #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #motherhood #momswithmuscle #newmom #fitmom #postbaby #momswholift #strongmom #boymom #missionhotmombod #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #11monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

This morning I received a message that I was totally NOT expecting. One of my mentors texted me and said, “you have an amazing story. Would you be willing to share?” You see, our team is hosting a sneak peak into coaching event and she asked me to share MY story. My first thought was, uh me? Are you sure? 😬🤷🏼‍♀️ I don’t know what’s so amazing about my story. But then I kicked that negativity to the curb and told myself YES YOU DO have an amazing story. We ALL have amazing stories. We all have things in our lives that we have overcome, that have made us better people. Things that could help change so many lives if we just SHARE. . But can I be totally honest with you guys? I am nervous. Public speaking is so not my thing. I tend to get sweaty and ramble. 😳 So I shocked myself a little bit when I said YES I’d love to. I said yes because I know there are things on my heart that others need to hear. I know there is at least ONE person out there that can relate to my story. One person that will decide to say yes and change their life too. . So I want to ask you guys a favor. If you’ve ever been curious about this coaching thing I do, I would LOVE to have you join me for this event. It would be so wonderful to have some friendly faces present while I pour my heart out for the very first time. There’s no obligation to sign up. Just come be a fly on the wall and see what coaching is all about. And if it’s not for you, please send me some prayers and positive vibes. 🙏🏼 If you’d like more info about the event, shoot me a message and I’d love to chat. What have you got to lose? 💗💗💗 . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumweightloss #girlswholift #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #motherhood #momswithmuscle #newmom #fitmom #postbaby #momswholift #strongmom #boymom #missionhotmombod #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #11monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness #coachlife #payitforward #yourstorymatters

Free yourself from the number on the scale, girlfriend. It can’t tell you how smart, funny, beautiful, or talented you are. The only thing the scale can tell you is the force of your gravitational pull toward the earth. When I broke the chains of weight loss, when I turned my focus toward fueling my body with healthy foods and exercising because it made me feel good, I found all of my freedom. I can help you find yours too. 💕 . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #postpartumweightloss #postbabybody #motherhood #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #healthymom #boymom #mamabear #strongasamother #11monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

In our community, we have ladies who work full time, ladies who mom full time, and some who do both. And we are all finding ways to MAKE the time to make our health a priority.

Today’s Cardio Core workout got me like 😳💦. But also feeling pretty 💪🏼 because it’s the best I’ve ever felt doing that workout. Excited to have crushed day 10/80 and already be in the double digits! The weather is starting to warm up here in P-cola (hello 70s and ☀️) and I’m ready to start breaking out the shorts! You guys know I basically live in workout clothes 😜 so these booty shorts from @fourathletics are some of my faves.

Left side. 4 years ago. Newly married. Husband just deployed. This girl was lost. There may be a smile on my face, but below the surface there was little joy. I wasn’t coping well with being a newlywed who’s husband left for nine months. I wasn’t taking care of myself. I was trying to fill the void with food, shopping...nothing that was actually good or healthy for me. I was so insecure. I hated my body, and I hated the way I felt in it. . Right side. Now. Coming up on one year postpartum. Four years of marriage and one more deployment later. This girl feels 100% comfortable in her own skin. Taking time to exercise every day, learning how to fuel my body with food, and finding a tribe of women who encourage and empower me has changed my life - inside and out. . Mamas, it is totally possible to love your body after baby! I feel better now at 30 with an almost one year old than I ever did in my early 20s. It is okay to make yourself a priority and set aside time to take care of YOU. Your babies need you to be the best version of you possible! . So what are you waiting for? You deserve to feel loved and confident and empowered. I only wish someone had offered me the opportunity sooner. 💕 . . . . . . #transformationtuesday #postpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #breastfeeding #postpartumweightloss #postbabybody #motherhood #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #normalizebreastfeeding #healthymom #boymom #mamabear #strongasamother #11monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

Where my fitness girls at? I have a random, maybe TMI, question for you...😂 To underwear or not to underwear in your workout leggings? I guess I just always assumed people wore them, until I found out that going commando while working out is a THING!

The topic of my devotional this morning was JUST START. It’s crazy how sometimes taking that first step can feel like the hardest part. But starting something new doesn’t have to be scary, you just need someone to have your back. You need a safety net of people that say, “if you fall, I will catch you.” If you’ve been thinking about starting your fitness journey, but you just don’t know where to begin, I’m here for you girl. I’ve got a whole COMMUNITY of ladies who will be there to cheer you on when you succeed and lift you up when you stumble. And I’ll be with you every step of the way. All you need is that tiny bit of courage to just start. . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #breastfeeding #postpartumweightloss #postbabybody #motherhood #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #normalizebreastfeeding #healthymom #boymom #mamabear #strongasamother #10monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

My trick for staying on track when going to parties - eat before you go! 👍🏼 Especially if you don’t know what foods will be available, this will help you avoid eating everything in sight just because you’re hungry and instead it will be easier to choose what aligns with your meal plan. My plant based superfoods shake is always my pre party secret weapon. 🍫🥜🍌 Plus it’s like having dessert before dinner. 😋 . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #breastfeeding #postpartumweightloss #postbabybody #motherhood #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #normalizebreastfeeding #healthymom #boymom #mamabear #strongasamother #10monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

You guys know my disdain for cardio. I’ve only told you about a billion times. 😂 But you wanna know why I don’t like it? Because it’s hard. Because I struggle through it and it makes me feel weak. I mean, we would all much rather do the things that make us feel good about ourselves. But because #ivegotgoals, I suck it up and do it anyway. Today’s workout is by far my least favorite in the program - Cardio Flow. It ALWAYS kicks my butt and I’m a hot sweaty mess by the end. But today was different. Today I felt like I was just riding the struggle bus 🚌 instead of driving it. It’s a small win, but I’ll take it. You see, big progress takes time. It’s those little victories every day that add up. I could barely do this workout a couple months ago. Today I did it without stopping. THAT is why I keep doing the hard things. The things that suck. The things I really don’t like but I know will get me closer to my goals in the end. Success isn’t always pretty, but it’s damn sure worth it. 💪🏼 . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumweightloss #girlswholift #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #motherhood #momswithmuscle #newmom #fitmom #postbaby #momswholift #strongmom #boymom #missionhotmombod #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #10monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

When I first saw that this program was called 80 Day Obsession, my first thought was...uhh no thanks. The workouts looked awesome, but I don’t want to be THAT girl who’s consumed by her fitness program. To me, obsessed = unhealthy. I’ve done the macro counting and the food weighing and the crazy long hours at the gym. And now I’m just not about that life. I want to do REAL people fitness. So yeah, when I saw the word “obsession” I was hesitant. But when I dug a little bit deeper I found it wasn’t about being obsessed with the numbers or the scale or the food. It’s about being obsessed with... being my best self. proving that I can do hard things. fueling my body with proper nutrition. leaning into my virtual community. feeling 100% confident in my own skin. I never thought a simple workout program would be so impactful in transforming every aspect of my life. But here I am - a better mom, a better wife, a better woman - all because I am learning to put stock into myself so that I can pour into the other areas of my life with the overflow. Mamas, it’s okay to be obsessed with taking care of and loving yourself. Your family needs you to be your best YOU. The next 80 days are going to pass anyway. Maybe it’s time you joined me! . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumweightloss #girlswholift #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #motherhood #momswithmuscle #newmom #fitmom #postbaby #momswholift #strongmom #boymom #missionhotmombod #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #10monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

Day 1/80 is in the books! Got my butt out of bed at 6:30, had my pre workout meal, some personal development time, and pushed play on my workout. And the baby is still sleeping! 🙌🏼 Since our WiFi guy isn’t coming till later this morning, I didn’t have a video to follow along or much music since my usual Spotify playlist was a no go. But I did what I could using a list of moves and trying my best to remember what the heck they are. 😂🤷🏼‍♀️ Some days aren’t going to be perfect, you’ve just got to push past the obstacles and get ish done. 👊🏼 . . . . . . #Postpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #breastfeeding #postpartumweightloss #postbabybody #motherhood #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #normalizebreastfeeding #healthymom #boymom #mamabear #strongasamother #10monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

So here’s the deal... If you caught my Insta stories, you saw that I’ve decided to start my 80 day program over again from the start. I don’t think I fully anticipated the wrench that moving would throw into things, and due to missing two weeks of workouts and being so far off the rails with my nutrition plan, I felt it was best for me to go back to day one. When I first started this program, I went into it with every intention to do it start to finish the way it’s SUPPOSED to be done. If I just had a bad day or two, that would be one thing. But two weeks is a whole different story. I thought and prayed hard about it. I even asked for help from our virtual gym girls. And I wouldn’t feel right picking back up where I left off. I want TRUE and HONEST results from this program, and the only way I’m going to get that is by going back and starting over. Since we’re not getting WiFi until tomorrow, I’m spending today prepping. This morning I got the office/workout room set up. My meal plan and grocery list are done. Now we just have to [finally] hit the grocery store and do some meal prep later. I thought I would be more disappointed about having to hit the reset button, but I am actually pretty excited. I feel like this time around I’ll be able to focus more, be more intentional, and I am super happy to have my own space again. If you are feeling like it’s time to hit reset on your fitness journey, I’m always here for you girl. . . . . . . #Postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumweightloss #girlswholift #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #motherhood #momswithmuscle #newmom #fitmom #postbaby #momswholift #strongmom #boymom #missionhotmombod #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #10monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

Thank you guys for being so supportive and loving after coming clean with you all on my stories last night. I think I’ve been suffering a bit of imposter syndrome and have been scared to admit I’ve been missing my workouts instead of just being real and admitting that I am not doing this program perfectly. I’ve even had a few moments over the past few days where I have contemplated wiping the slate clean and go back to day one. But then I remembered Autumn saying to us in our coach test group that in life you don’t just get to stop and start over. That is not the point of this. So instead I am just going to finish the best I can and then do another round with more discipline come April. This journey for me was never about being perfect. It’s about proving to myself that I can do it, while learning to give myself a little grace at the same time. I tell my challengers all the time that this is a LIFESTYLE change, not an attempt to follow a workout calendar or meal plan to a T. Our fitness journeys are not black and white. This is real life. If you need people to do real life with, I would love for you to be a part of our virtual community. Our doors are opening March 5th, but I’ve got a special something for you if you join today.

I set out on this coaching journey because I found this amazing community that completely changed my life and I wanted to pay that forward to all the people I love. But I’ve learned along the way that no matter how badly I WANT to help them live healthier + happier lives...I can’t want it for them. I can’t make them ready. All I can do is keep working on my own journey and leave the door open for them. So if you’re reading this, just know that I am here waiting for the moment when you are ready. I can’t wait to pour into you and show you how this community can change your life too. 💕 • • • • • #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #breastfeeding #postpartumweightloss #girlswholift #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #postbabybody #motherhood #momswithmuscle #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #pregnancy #normalizebreastfeeding #momswholift #healthymom #strongmom #boymom #mamabear #missionhotmombod #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #10monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

The hardest part isn’t showing up every day for your journey. It’s simply having the courage to begin. 🙌🏼 We’re doing some major revamping in our Virtual Gym to make it bigger and better than ever, and I am PUMPED for all the ladies who get to be part of it. 👯‍♀️💕 If you need a little push getting started and a community to help keep you accountable, I would love to link arms with you and help you reach your goals. Our doors open March 5th, but I’ve got something special for anyone who signs up before Wednesday. 😆 Comment below or message me if you want more info! • • • • • #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #breastfeeding #postpartumweightloss #girlswholift #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #postbabybody #motherhood #momswithmuscle #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #pregnancy #normalizebreastfeeding #momswholift #healthymom #strongmom #boymom #mamabear #missionhotmombod #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #10monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

SO MUCH SWEAT. 💦 I used to be one of those naysayers who thought you couldn’t get a killer workout at home. But the thought of trying to pack up the baby and worry about childcare at a gym makes me 🙅🏼‍♀️🙅🏼‍♀️. I love that all I need is my laptop, minimal equipment, and a few feet of space to get in a workout that has me dying by the end. 😂😵 Day 35/80 ✔️ • • • • • #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #breastfeeding #postpartumweightloss #girlswholift #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #postbabybody #motherhood #momswithmuscle #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #pregnancy #normalizebreastfeeding #momswholift #healthymom #strongmom #boymom #mamabear #missionhotmombod #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #10monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness
