A Year of Success!

jericho mcmatthews joel freeman natalie johnson

I cannot believe in 5 days I will get to workout with two of my favorite super trainers in the world! One of my greatest blessings was being selected to be in a test group with Joel and Jericho when Core de Force (a mixed martial arts program) was released a few years ago.  Being in a coach test group … Read More

Feeling FIT & FABULOUS in your body

6 years ago, there’s not a chance that I would have worn a bikini…let alone share a picture of myself in one. But if you just give me a little of your time, I will share my WHY and an invitation with you. My WHY is for the women out there who still feel trapped in their own skin like … Read More

Love the Skin You’re In!

love the skin you're in

When is the last time you’ve looked in the mirror and loved the reflection you see looking back at you?  When is the last time you have put YOURSELF first without feeling guilty?  When is the last time you invested in YOU instead of putting others first?  This was me for years. And I was SO grateful that someone kept … Read More

Brick by Brick

brick by brick

Sometimes it takes rock bottom for us to build our life back up brick by brick.  And that’s what I did several years ago…because I wanted more out of life…and for my girls.  And when an opportunity arose, I decided to take it. I decided to grow a coaching business from home. Most people would say that they don’t have … Read More

Be Present

be present

You will never give this moment again. 💜 This is what I reminded myself last night when tucking Mara into bed.  She had an agenda for everything we still needed to do, I am sure you parents can relate. She discovered new toys buried under piles of building projects and had to show me (we call her the mad professor 🤣)  She … Read More

The Girl in the Photo

Have you ever seen a picture of yourself and not recognized the person looking back at you?  6 years ago I was 35-40 pounds over weight, was tired all the time, run down from teaching 180 students a day and being a mom to 2 young girls. I hid from pictures and really felt trapped in my own skin. Someone … Read More

7 Years in the Making

transformation

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

You Are Brave for Trying

So here’s how the story is going to go… You are going to come to a crossroad in your life. You are going to have a choice to make. Stay where you are. Or take a risk.  A risk to do something new. Something brave. You are not going to feel ready. But you also know that you do NOT … Read More

Happiness…it starts with YOU!

Happiness💜 I have found that I have had a lot more to say in the last couple of months, but I can almost become paralyzed with putting it on paper. You see, most of my early blogs came out of pain, grief, loss, and fighting for more in my life every day. Blogging became my outlet and part of my … Read More

Forgiveness

Forgiveness. I don’t know if I’m even credible to write this yet because I am still processing what all of this means. I’m working through a lot of this as I write. But as always, something pulls at my heart and tells me that someone else needs to hear this too. It’s going to be a little rough…but hear me … Read More
