What are they going to think of me?
I think this mindset imprisons and paralyzes more people than we realize. I know it did me for a long time... I worried about judgement, I worried about fitting in, I worried about what people were saying and thinking... So...when I started coaching... that same mindset swept over me.
What is she doing now?🙄
Hasn’t she stopped and started other things before?🤔
Does she even know anything about health and fitness?💪
Doesn’t she have a Master’s Degree in counseling?📚
Is this a pyramid scheme?🤣 It seems so silly to me that I actually wasted energy on those thoughts... and the truth is this. Coaching has impacted my life tremendously, and for me not to share that with you.. well, I would consider it selfish. Coaching has impacted me physically, financially, spiritually, and most importantly mentally. Everyday I get to work on myself and cheer on other people who are doing the same... it has truly been a blessing- and one that I didn’t know that I needed.
Cheers to continuing on this journey and squashing out those negative thoughts that crept in my mind for so many years 🥂

de hoy va dedicado a Kai💙 Y aprovecho para contarles un poco sobre mi vida desde que soy mami. Desde que soy mami nació el más puro amor que existe en mi corazón e hizo que toda mi vida cambiase, todas mis prioridades han cambiado en todos los ámbitos y confiezo que jamás he sido tan felíz como lo soy desde que Kai llegó a nuestras vidas. Aunque para las que comparten este rol conmigo, saben que no todo es “cute” y que tus dias son algo más complicados y las horas no me dan para hacerlo todo.Por ello desde haces unos meses planifico todo, o por lo menos intento. tener rutinas entre mi trabajo, ser mamá y muchísimas cosas más ayuda full. A veces se me olvida que estoy yo y que también debo dedicarme tiempo cosa en la que estoy trabajando un poquito a la ves. A todas las mamis que están leyendo, ya saben ¡No están solas! We all struggle. Ánimo! #thestruggleisreal #workingmom #momlifebestlife
Shoulder day is done!! Makes it even better when Noah comes out when your done and says “leave the video playing, I need to workout now” It truly inspires me knowing he’s watching what I do. I can’t stress it enough how much our children learn from watching us. Makes me so happy seeing all my fellow teammates and even random people working out “with” their children. Keep workin hard mommas, even on the tough days it’s all worth it!💕

Amo il mio lavoro.
Amo il rapporto che si crea con i corsisti.
Amo preparare le lezioni cercando sempre qualcosa di diverso per incuriosirli.
Amo lavorare con i bambini perché sono divertenti, curiosi, plasmabili.
Amo lavorare con gli adolescenti perché spesso non vengono a lezione per loro decisione, sono obbligati dai genitori e la motivazione principale è evitare l'insufficienza, ma quando si accorgono che è divertente e i voti migliorano...beh è tutto più facile.
Amo lavorare con gli adulti perché spesso sono i più motivati, perché sono curiosi, forse alcuni troppo precisi, ma vedere i loro progressi è gratificante. Poi è bello condividere del tempo insieme, parti della propria vita, esperienze.... Amo le risate che si creano in aula quando si impara giocando e cantando.
Amo ciò che faccio.

🤤My husband’s lunch today.
💗My hubs isn’t on a Keto diet, but he’s seen first hand the improvement in my overall health, so to make it easier on me with cooking meals, he eats basically everything I eat, but just a lot more with a little more freedom and with no consideration for macros.
Ready to push yourself? We know you can do it! 💪
When mamas thrive, the world thrives... 🌎
An article I wrote back in February about Colorado’s lack of affordable childcare sparked a bigger conversation around the struggles of working mothers. So many of you shared your stories, and it became very clear that our collective voices could potentially change the script around working motherhood, and usher in the changes we need to thrive.
So, I applied for a fellowship with @thefightbackfoundation
, and pitched a plan to use interactive, purpose-driven media as a means to spur action and investment in social programs - specifically to make childcare more affordable for Colorado’s working families.
Well, I’m SO excited to share that The Mama Sagas was chosen as a finalist for one of three fellowships offered by The Fight Back Foundation! After a mentorship and 3-day boot camp/incubator in October, I’ll present to a team of Colorado investors and entrepreneurs to make a final pitch. Armed with our stories, a bunch of research and a whole lot of passion, I hope to show that, collectively, we have the potential to create positive social change that is good for families AND good for business.
I’m so honored by this recognition and excited by the possibility of making a big impact in the lives of women and children right here in Colorado, and (god-willing) beyond. Thank you @heidiganahl
for this INCREDIBLE opportunity!
This... ✨ my customers ✨ my supporters/“likers”/ sharers” ✨ my mentors ✨ the opportunity ✨ the “Doctors”
This business is something I never knew I would enjoy the way I do. And I am beyond grateful for all of it!

I took this picture a few weeks ago while in #hawaii
. Thinking of my travels or where I want to go next instantly elevates my mood ☀️
Liift4 day 3 in the books.
Which photo is a fitness level you can commit to? +The one on the left is 60 minute daily workouts with a rest day on Sunday. Eating clean meals and a nutritioniat specific times during the day in order to create the best fuel for the body. Excluding all treats and alcohol.
+ I did this for 3 months and treated myself like an athlete training for the healthiest life possible. I felt great. I looked great. + The one on the right is me now. The same workout program, but choosing to only do 4-5 workouts per week. Clean, simple meals, with a nutrition shake and sweet treats. I’m enjoying my wine an evening or two a week, and I am living a summer life with my kids. I’m still living a rather healthy lifestyle and I feel pretty good, too.
There’s a 3” difference in my waist and about a ten pound difference on the scale.
On the left I’m super fit. On the right, I’m fit. 💁♀️So here’s the deal. This is not an all or nothing program. You get what you put into it. I love that I have this option. I know that there will be other times during this year where I’ll dial in my nutrition and get back to following a program 100%, but right now I’m okay to exercise throughout the week, but not every day. I’m embracing the flexibility in my schedule while not teaching and my nutrition isn’t as scheduled.
You can have this, too! 🙌
You can choose to go ALL in on a program. You will get incredible results.
You can choose your own goals - with fitness and nutrition.
It is all up to you.
Sometimes that’s scary though. Sometimes we don’t want that freedom. Sometimes we want to be told what to do.
That’s all okay. I’m here to guide you through your options. I’m here to help you get started with what YOU want to do.
Choose either picture - both include a happy, healthy, successful person. Which lifestyle are you ready to take on? (Cutie patootie not included)

Going back to work and need a breast pump bag? This one is marvelous! It has a dedicated pocket for your pump and room for other “stuffs”. 🎥 by my mom which is why my head is cut off 🤷🏽♀️. #donotbringmomtoworkday
I may be stuck on the couch, but I can still focus on my nutrition!
Here's next week's meal plan!

Summer time in our house use to mean toys all over, however since my kids are older we’ve gotten rid of most of the toys.
When we did have a ton of toys, we simply used 2 big bins and threw everything in the bins but times have changed. I’m currently working with a client who wants her kids toys organized by type instead of just in a big basket or bin. So we are looking into furniture pieces that can hold baskets similar to these from Pottery Barn.
How do you prefer to organize your kids toys? In one big bin or separated by type? Either way always make sure that whatever toys you have are actually being used by your child or you’re just holding on to clutter.
