Special Needs Moms Conquering Macros

I’ve always known special needs mothers were amazing, but macro coaching with Stay Fit Mom has opened my eyes to a whole new world of appreciation.  Social Media has it’s vices for sure, but one of my favorite things is the raw vulnerability and honesty I see coming from so many mothers today.  Gone are the days of mothers (at least the mother’s I’m willing to follow) portraying a picture perfect life.  Stay Fit Mom represents a community of women willing to share the wonderful AND the hard.

Partner Weekly Workout

When in Utah last week for the holiday, I made sure to get some good workouts in. I had no intentions of watching what I ate, but the least I could do was exercise and move my body. Some days were harder than others to make myself do it, but each time I did I didn’t regret it. I’m posting one of the workouts I made up and did on Thanksgiving day with my sister and nieces here so you can all give it a try! I did it with a partner, but you can do this solo!

Christmas Caramels

My mother has been making Christmas caramels every year since as long as I can remember. It’s by far and away my favorite Christmas tradition and favorite holiday treat. She used to make pan after pan and we would all help cut them out and bag them for gifts. I know you’ll find this hard to believe, but I now find myself doing the same thing. Each year I’m a little more confident about my Christmas caramel making skills and find myself making a few more batches for friends, teachers, and neighbors.

Pumpkin Workout

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Not because I love food so much, but mostly because I love being with family. I can’t wait to gather with all my siblings in Utah next week. All the cousins running around, late night games with the adults, crafts, food, shopping, and sometimes fun in the snow. I hope you look forward to the holiday as much as I do! In the meantime, I’m going to stick to my routine and make sure to be diligent with my nutrtion and get my workouts in. Here’s a fun workout for you this week using a pumpkin!

Why Your Doctor Might Not Be the Best Place to Get Diet Advice

I am a big picture person. I talk a lot about mindset and concepts that reinforce the big picture. I do this because, in my own mind, I’ve always needed to see the big picture BEFORE taking actionable steps. You will hear lots of health and wellness advocates, {including myself} use terms like “moderation,” “balance,” or “healthy,” but what do these concepts really mean practically in day to day life?

Sidewalk Workout

Sometimes it’s hard to get motivated. Sometimes I just DON’T want to workout, I’ll be honest. The motivation to workout comes and goes, just like with anything else. But NEVER have I EVER regretted doing it. Never have I completed a workout and thought, “Wow that was a waste of time and I don’t feel better at all.” If you have been struggling to make yourself workout, think of me sitting on your shoulder and telling you to just do it anyway. Heck, do this sidewalk workout! No equipment is needed and it will only take you 15 minutes!
