Make Today Your Moment

Did you ever realize that one decision can change the whole course of your life?  It did for me in January 2013… I decided that after gaining 50 pounds with both of my girls that I needed to get healthy again.

Transformation Tuesday… 7 years between these pictures and they are still 2 of my favorites. The one on the left is the JOY of being a new mom for the second time. And the one on the right is true HAPPINESS at Mara’s 7th birthday party. But the story between these two pictures is one full of highs and lows. … Read More

Conquering the Scale!

Have you struggled with the scale over the years? Do the numbers still haunt you? I was consumed by the scale for many years and the size clothing that I thought I “should” be. I was also stuck in an up and down weight loss struggle for about 15 years. But in the last 5 years, I’ve been on a … Read More

Summer is almost here…

…and I used to dread swimsuit shopping. And this is coming from a former swimmer, who lived in her swimsuit for over 10 years. You know I am a story teller…so here’s another short one. After college, putting on 50 pounds with each daughter, life happening over the years, I NEVER thought I would put on a swimsuit…let alone a … Read More

Happy Whatever it takes Wednesday! I shared this quote with my online health and fitness group this morning and wanted to share it with my FIT family too.

What are you waiting for?

A new day? Good morning! A new year? It starts tomorrow! A new you? It’s already within you. The best decision I ever made in 2016 was to go ALL IN on ME.

Transforming Your Life From The Inside Out

from the inside out

I love sharing transformation stories…and this one is not about the physical (although the left was my first photo shoot ever…I needed some work on my poses…haha!) This one is about transforming your life from the inside out. The left represents my old life – a past relationship, different home, different spiritual state…a person who was lost but soon to … Read More

Be prepared for another set of deep thoughts…

deep thoughts

Last year at this time I was in a complete financial crisis. I’ve shared bits and pieces of that part of my story, but I always try to do it with integrity. I remember feeling the weight of the world on my shoulders to “fix” it but I didn’t know how. So I threw myself into my team, Warrior Nation, … Read More

Today was NOT easy…it was one of those days where you had to work harder, fight deeper, and come face to face with some challenges. But then when you get home and realize that you have been spotlighted with some other amazing test group members from the Core de Force program, you realize how you have to keep going…no matter … Read More

Ready to Achieve Greatness?

Achieve Greatness

Soulful Sunday deep thoughts… Hands down one of the most amazing weekends I’ve had in a long time. I was so honored to speak in front of hundreds of people this weekend about my Core de Force journey. I still can’t believe I was picked. I still can’t believe the transformation I’ve had.
