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

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

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? Help a sister out! . . . . . . #postpartum #bodyafterbaby #strongnotskinny #tiu #tiuteam #girlswholift #momsofig #bbgmoms #iifym #fitgirls #tiuflorida #fitnessjourney #momlife #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

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. 🙏🏼✨ .

Been working toward a big goal all week and I am so excited to wake up this morning and say that I DID IT! 🎉🎉 Today is an exciting day for me + my team and I can’t wait to celebrate all our wins TOGETHER. 👯‍♀️ But for right now, I’m going to take all this excitement (and my liquid sunshine) and use it to CRUSH 💪🏼 my lifting workout. #obsessivelygrateful for this coaching gig and all the blessings it has brought into my life.

“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. . . So what small thing do YOU do every day for your sanity? . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #postpartumweightloss #postbabybody #motherhood #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #healthymom #boymom #mamabear #strongasamother #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

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

Needed a quickie today so I traded in my hour long booty workout for a similar 30 minute one. Still feeling sore but I got it done in half the time. I love that I have an online library of hundreds of workouts at my fingertips just in case what’s programmed for the day doesn’t work for me. I can simply choose something else and still get my sweat on with an expert trainer right at home. . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumweightloss #girlswholift #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #motherhood #momswithmuscle #newmom #fitmom #postbaby #momswholift #strongmom #boymom #missionhotmombod #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #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

So happy to be back in my regular routine! I am always grateful that I can take my workouts with me anywhere when I travel, but there’s nothing like being in your own space. I know I haven’t been sharing much fitness lately, but that’s because I took my visit home as time to unplug and focus on the reason I was there - my friends and family. But there are lots of exciting things happening and I can’t wait to share this new journey with you all! . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumweightloss #girlswholift #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #motherhood #momswithmuscle #newmom #fitmom #postbaby #momswholift #strongmom #boymom #missionhotmombod #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #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. So if you are like me, and you feel like you’re constantly battling 👉🏼 emotional eating 👉🏼 the diet cycle 👉🏼 late night snacking 👉🏼 binging while traveling 👉🏼 stress around food 👉🏼 the “all or nothing” mentality I’d LOVE to share more info about this new program! This is NOT a diet. It is a complete MINDSET overhaul. So if you’re ready for FOOD FREEDOM, hop over to my DM so we can chat more about what this mindset shift can do for you! . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #postpartumweightloss #postbabybody #motherhood #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #foodfreedom #healthymom #boymom #mamabear #strongasamother #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

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

You guys may remember a few weeks back when I decided to pump the breaks on 80 Day Obsession. I was going through a HARD season of life, between adjusting from a move and a baby who was cutting a nap. It felt overwhelming and forced and I needed to step away. I am SO glad I did. I needed these past couple weeks to regroup, find my new normal, and reclaim my joy. . So here we go...I’ve decided to go for take THREE! Third time’s a charm, right? Now that I’ve found my groove here in FL and little man is on a schedule and taking solid 2 hour naps 🙌🏼 I feel like I’m finally in the right space to take on this 80 day challenge. Especially after the emotional roller coaster that I’ve been on recently, I NEED something transformative to lean into. This program is a complete mind + body overhaul, and that’s exactly what I’m craving right now. I really do love the workouts and saw AMAZING progress when I buckled down and committed. . But I don’t want to do this alone! 80DO takes grit and focus and having a community to do it with is CRUCIAL. So if you’ve been watching, if you’ve been checking out people’s results from round 1 and thinking I WANT THAT now is your chance! We are gearing up for another round starting Monday, April 23 and I am opening the doors of my virtual gym to 5️⃣ ladies who want to go ALL IN with me for 80 days. . If you’re ready for a complete inside-out transformation, simply comment I’M IN down below or shoot me a DM so we can chat! . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumweightloss #girlswholift #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #motherhood #momswithmuscle #newmom #fitmom #postbaby #momswholift #strongmom #boymom #missionhotmombod #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #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

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.

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

YOU GUYS... . Don’t ask me why, but I decided to step on the scale this morning. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I was feeling really good so I thought, why not, I guess. Anywho, up popped a number that I have NEVER seen before in my LIFE. 😱 I’m talking a smaller than CrossFit 5x a week pre baby Felix number! #ohheybabyobliques . Then I put these jeans on, and they are getting TOO BIG. Umm, what?! Victories on both side of the spectrum today! . But I’m not sharing this to be all look-at-me. NOPE. 🙅🏼‍♀️ I’m sharing because it’s taken me a looong time to get here and sometimes your progress deserves to be shouted from the rooftops. . You see, this isn’t some quick fix or “check out my results from my latest 21 day program.” This is 9+ months of showing up every dang day and putting in the freaking WORK. And ya know what? It feels so good to celebrate. . Even better? I get to celebrate WITH ALL the ladies in our virtual gym. And when they have big wins, we celebrate those too. 💕 . THAT is what I am most grateful for today. My big, beautiful, badass community of women. 👯‍♀️ Because celebrating our victories TOGETHER is way more fun than doing it alone. . So when are you going to start celebrating with us? . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumweightloss #girlswholift #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #motherhood #momswithmuscle #newmom #fitmom #postbaby #momswholift #strongmom #boymom #missionhotmombod #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #11monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

Workouts don’t have to be boring or something you dread. Just blast some good tunes and get to work. 😜 I tackled cardio day this morning 👎🏼 and decided to #funthiscrapup with my 2000’s hip hop playlist and maybe even a dance break or two. [more in my stories] What can you do to make your workouts more fun? . Happy 🐪 day! . . . . . . #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

This week in our virtual gym we’re talking all about making a healthy lifestyle work with time constraints. I know we ALL feel like we never have enough time in the day, but it is totally possible. 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. If you need help figuring out how to make fitness work in your busy life, I’m here for you girl! . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #breastfeeding #postpartumweightloss #postbabybody #motherhood #newmom #firsttimemom #fitmom #postbaby #normalizebreastfeeding #healthymom #boymom #mamabear #strongasamother #11monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

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. Super soft and comfy and they don’t ride up! 💜 Check out the link in my bio to snag you some and for a special discount. What brands of workout clothes are you guys loving right now? I’m always on the hunt for good ones! . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumweightloss #girlswholift #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #motherhood #momswithmuscle #newmom #fitmom #postbaby #momswholift #strongmom #boymom #missionhotmombod #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #11monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness #fourathletics #fourathleticsambassador

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

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

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

#tfw shark 🦈 week starts on cardio day. 😩 chugged my liquid gold mommy fuel ⚡️ and told myself it’s only 30 minutes. You can do 30 minutes. Ladies - did you know that working out can actually help alleviate PMS symptoms? Just another reason to get your sweat on! 💪🏼 . . . . . . #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumweightloss #girlswholift #tiumama #bodyafterbaby #motherhood #momswithmuscle #newmom #fitmom #postbaby #momswholift #strongmom #boymom #missionhotmombod #strongasamother #momswithmuscles #10monthspostpartum #teamgritngrace #gritngracefitness

Loving, kind, and a little bit gangster. 😜 When I asked you guys a while back to help me out by describing me in a few words, this is what you said. THANK YOU 🙏🏼 by the way for being so wonderful and generous. I received nothing but positivity on that post, and I feel like I have so many virtual friends here. 💗💗 A little bit of grit and a little bit of grace. That’s me. If that’s you too, we should totally be real friends. 😉 . . . . . . #boymom #momofboys #sahm #momsofinstagram #momlifeisthebestlife #motherhood #stayathomemom #momsofig #fitmom #parenthood #motherhoodunplugged #bestofmom #10monthspostpartum #findyourtribe #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

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
