Oh man. I’m exhausted. More mentally, than physically. Moving does that, doesn’t it? Breathe. And, eat cupcakes. My sweet friend, and client, Erin brought Jada and me cupcakes for our last training session. We attacked them! This obviously does not fall in line with Skinnygirl Snack Swap happening in the month of September, but I’ll […]

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Skinnygirl. Life has me on-the-go constantly. As a mom and personal trainer, I don’t have much time to sit down (who does, right?). That couldn’t be any truer than the present as we are in the midst of moving. I need, need to have healthy, convenient […]

Crazy 8′s Sprint Workout

Even though this weekend was filled with packing tape and cardboard boxes, we managed to get in a family workout despite the moving chaos. Spencer is drinking the N.O.-Xplode pre-workout igniter I received for a campaign with FitFluential. The new formula helps deliver explosive energy, enhanced endurance and maximum performance for workouts. Spence said he felt amped when he drank this. […]

Happy Monday all! We spent a majority of the weekend packing boxes, but at least we were all together again. Jada and I will join Spencer in Illinois next week when we close on our house. Until then it’s cardboard boxes, then living with my parents. Gym Workout Because I knew most of my weekend […]

I only had a few days left before my CPR/AED certification expired, and needed to remedy that ASAP! So, Jada and I visited the Exercise Science department at Creighton where I taught weight training. Thankfully, my friend Jen, one of my all-time favorite people, talented instructor and strength coach, is also baby whisperer. So, while […]

Gym Workouts Lately: CrossFit

Exercise is something that keeps me grounded and sane. I have control over it. It does NOT control me, but I LOVE pushing myself and seeing what I am capable of. In the midst of packing, I have been starting my days with CrossFit gym workouts–while I can! Here goes. Monday Workout #1 6 rounds […]

Beginner Workout Routine

Hi Friends! I’ve been meaning to post this beginner workout routine for a while now. While most of the workouts on my YouTube channel offer modifications, not many of them are geared specifically towards new exercisers. It takes a lot of courage to start something new.  I love nothing more as a trainer than to […]

Friday Flex

The light was just right in our bedroom, so I took a selfie to pump myself up. If a bikini and fluorescent lighting was involved, you can be sure I’d spare you the picture! Friday Flex. It’s a thing right? Group Fitness Today is bitter sweet as I will be teaching my last HIIT class at […]



I guess yesterday was National Dog Day, but we celebrate every day! Go hug your pup! Have you ever seen a 6-legged dog before? We got some great news this weekend and found a house (that we love) in Illinois! Now, the stress of moving is even more real to me. We have moved 3 times […]

Bam! And, it’s Monday. That always happens doesn’t it? That’s about how I feel too, Jada! My dad has been teaching her the bitter beer face, and she pretty much delivers on command now! It’s pretty funny. See what I mean?! Also, this girl might turn into a watermelon. Cooper and Jada needed to burn off some […]
