Boy Mama. Wife. Fit Addicted. Runner 💕 Fit Coach & Mentor |
If you’ve ever considered joining us then I gotta say that NOW is the time. We’re having a flash sale on Friday (over on FB) on allll of the things we love and use every day. . The streaming workouts. The amazing unicorn energy juice. Our superfood shake. And tons more. Plus we are raffling an Amazon gift card! . Most of the time I workout alone with a screen and thousands of miles between me and my fitsisters! So in-person workouts with my girls are my fave! . The boys played. The moms exercised. Sounds like a perfect afternoon to me . Link to join is in my bio! . . . . #fitnessmotivation #mombod #mombodtransformation #eatclean #fitlifestyle #motherrunner #crosstrainingforrunners #boymom #kidsallday #agilityandstrength #strongnotskinny #strongmoms #postbabybelly #runnergirl #runlikeagirl #2adays #bestofmom #fitnessformoms #blackfridayfitness
Every time my #typea personality wants to quit when perfection isn’t attained, my #innerfighter comes out to remind myself I am NOT a quitter. . Sometimes that results in really amazing things (like completing a #halfmarathon when my time goal is forfeited.) . Don’t forget why you started, sister. . . . . #northjerseymoms #newjerseymoms #njfitmoms #njfitness #njfitwomen #northjerseyparents #northjerseykids #fitlatina #fitlatinas #fitnessforeveryone #fitmom #momswhoworkout #mombod #bestfitffriends #getfitwithme #exercise #eatcleangetlean
Dance party mid-workout! I’d I ever joined a gym I’d be the daily entertainment because of my three left feet! 🤷🏻♀️ . Find the kind of exercise you actually enjoy hating and it won’t be so bad! I have 800 different exercise classes I can stream right to my home, so I can a fool of myself in private (and in my stories for your amusement!) . . . . . . . . . . #northjerseymoms #newjerseymoms #njfitmoms #njfitness #njfitwomen #northjerseyparents #northjerseykids #fitlatina #fitlatinas #fitnessforeveryone #danceparty

“You know why you’re not succeeding? Because you don’t have a plan. Because you’re leaving things to chance. Because you’re in that space where you’re telling yourself “I’ll make it happen.” But you’re not making it happen. And if it was important enough, you would make it happen. You’d make a plan, cut the BS and get your ish together. So... you in? Or you just pretending it’s important?” - my inner dialogue this morning. . I can be a bit harsh on myself. But guess what? I made the plan. I did the things. And an hour later, I’m sweaty, I’ve got a better attitude and I now KNOW how the rest of this month is gonna play out. . Boom.
Find yourself some girlfriends who like to do what YOU like to do! It makes life so much more amazing! I love these two ladies and the fact they were spontaneous enough to take an overnight trip with 48 hours notice in a different state! . Cheers to waking up early, drinking our unicorn juice, getting our sweat on and then playing with our kids all day! This is the freedom coaching is giving US and I love love love that we are in this together. . Community is EVERYTHING to me and spending quality time is one of my love languages! Jenn and I hang out all.the.time, but Katey - we only get to see her and Hayden on the internet. And we see them almost daily, too, but its not the same. . Don’t you love it when you get to spend time with your besties? . . . . . #yourbestfitfriends #fitsisters #supportteam #girlsjustwannagetfit #beleiveinyourselfdaily #fitmoms #fivekidsunder5 #fitlivin #kalaharipoconos
The bloat is gone, the scale is down, the energy is back up and best of all - the candy addiction is broken! . Let me be honest here: I did great on day 1, perfect really. Day 2, I absentmindly ate two crackers when I was making lunch for the kids (oops!) and reintroduced coffee, because headache. . Day 3 - well, that was the hardest. My whole schedule was off, I was super busy that morning and started to eat late. I had an iced coffee on the road and then that night…I ate a tiny slice of half-eaten pizza because my head was pounding and I was starving. Is that the cleanse fault or my fault? 1000% MY fault. . But I’m still over here celebrating 3.7 lbs lost and breaking the bonds of that sugar dependance that oh-so-quickly happens. . And if you missed out on doing it with us this time, don’t worry, there will be another opportunity coming up soon! Thanks for cheering me on! . . . . . #candycrush #sugarmamas #cleanseresults #weightlosschallenge #beforeafter #fitmomsofig #fitmomsofiginspire #yourbestfitfriend #findmotivation #cleansebeforeafter

I’m proud of this little boy, his kind heart, his patient demeanor and willingness to keep trying. He’s got the very best parts of his daddy and his mama. He totally interrupted a live video I was recording today and thought it was just hilarious! 🤦🏻♀️😂 . What’s your favorite thing about your kiddo?
This is the sign you’ve been waiting for! I am here to help! . I wrote those words earlier this summer when I got to meet up with my fitsisters in Colorado because I know there is a woman out there who needs to see this. . I’ve come this far ONLY because I had someone holding a theoretical virtual sign saying she could help me. I didnt know what I was doing, but she taught me. And the more i learned the more i paid it forward and learned more. . You want to lose weight? Awesome! I’ll help you that and in the process lead you to change habits, pick up some positive vibes and introduce you to the best damn #girlgang on the Internet. . Here’s the sign you’ve been waiting for. Let’s do this. . . . . . . . . . #summerbodiesaremadeinwinter #nogainnovember #noexcusesnovember #ineedasign #positivitychallenge #takemetoyourleader #raisingboys #fitnessafterbabies #fitnessformoms
We are what we do consistently. . Not just when it’s convenient. Not just when we feel like it. Not just when it’s sunny out. Not just when it fits in. . I’m watching my boy at practice, learning the bare basics of wrestling, stuff that you would think how is THIS gonna help in a match? But it all is building a strong foundation for him. . And what l love most is that he does every task to completion. No matter if he’s the last one, no matter if it took him til the very last part of the drill to get it right. He’s doing it until he succeeds despite the failures it took to get there. . I hope THAT is the lesson that sticks through life for him. Keep going until you succeed. . . . . . . . . . . . #wrestlingmom #wrestlingfamily #wrestler #njwrestling #wrestlingseason2018 #momswhorun #fitfam #igfitmoms #youthathlete #letthembelittleforever
Time. It’s the most valuable commodity I possess and I am grateful to be able to share it with my boys. . I stepped out of an amazing career to be a full time mom. I chose to pour myself into being a virtual fitness coach early in the morning, during nap time hustle and staying up a bit late so I can give them the best of me. And my sweet husband works extra hard to ensure at least one of us is with the boys all the time. . Life is short. Time is valuable. Make sure you’re doing what makes YOUR heart soar. And if staying home with your babies is on your heart, let’s chat and I can tell you how I’ve made it work for our family. . . . . . . . . . #letthembelittle #timeisprecious #mamafirst #firsttimemama #newmomlife #mysweetbabyboy #newbornmama #sahmlife #igfitfam #igfitmoms #fitnessmotivation
The favorite part of my fitness journey has been learning to be positive - about myself, my situation, my life past, present and future! There’s so much to be thankful if you’re willing to look for it, right? . I know who it feels to be overwhelmed with family drama, personal issues and work junk. It’s heavy. I know how freaking good it feels to let it all melt away with a good sweat sesh, some positive affirmations and a #perspectiveshift to look ONLY for the good. . I couldn’t have come this far without my fit fam, my virtual gym girls, who help keep me on track on the daily. . If you want to be happy, be happy. Life’s too short to be stuck in the shadows. Start by making a list of things you’re grateful for…that ALWAYS helps me out of a funk! . What are you thankful for today? . . . . . . . #girlswholift #determination #wisdom #lightworker #positivequotes #goodvibes #positivethoughts #lawofattraction #connectingmoms #parenting #momsofinstagram #fitgirl #exercise #weightloss
“I want every broken girl to see her true potential and know her worth. I want to share the conviction and confidence that oozes out of fitness.” . That’s what my friend @ashlie.m.smith told me this week when I asked her why she was a coach. Her words pinged my soul. . My 2012 self on the left was so broken, so hurt, so scared, so insecure. I put up a big wall, I enjoyed being offensive because it kept people away. Two months after that picture was taken, the bondage began to loosen its grip...when I said yes to fitness and a few weeks later, yes to coaching. . I love the woman who has emerged on the right. I love the growth I’ve experienced. I love how I feel INSIDE. . If this broken, hurt, angry girl can shed that terrible pain and emerge completely changed, then anyone can. At home fitness + food + fit friends paired with some really really good books, that’s the secret sauce. . I love that the final two months of the year I’m linking arms with my fitsisters to make a big impact on another community - those impacted by #pediatriccancer. I shared more about it in my stories, so head there to learn more. . I’m so glad I said yes, and I hope that you will say yes to joining us, too. Enrollment is now open 💛 . . . . . . . #beforeafter #igfitmoms #seasons #cozy #autumncolors #fitmommy #fitmomsofig #igfitmomsinspire #igfitmom #payitforward #healthlymom #strongmom #fitgirl #motherrunner #youvyou
My fave month is here! It’s all about gratitude and paying it forward! I’m purposefully planning random acts of kindness this month with my #fitsisters and today’s #raok is complete! Check my stories to see what I did and LMK if you want to join in! . Being a coach has really challenged me to be introspective, forced me (in a good way) to shed the bad habits and pulled the good things out of me. I’m grateful for the women who do this with me and for those of you who cheer me along! . Just know that when YOU’RE ready, I’m only just a message away! 💛👯♀️💛
Happy Halloween from your favorite unicorn! I'm here to sprinkle some motivation dust on ya! . I remember my first year as a working journalist on Halloween and being so disappointed. No one was dressed up, not even a little bit. It was just another day. Granted I was in a newsroom...and you really can't be going to interview the mayor dressed like a cat (or can you?), but legit my heart sank. Where was the fun? It was...gone. . Well, guess what? My office NOW is so much freaking fun! This morning in my Virtual Gym we worked out in our costumes and fun Halloween gear! Tons of us are dressing up for work or to hang out with our kids. The girls have been telling each other Halloween jokes all week, doing extra "scary' workouts with brooms, dancing along with Pamela Punkin and doing all the things. IT'S FUN!!!! . Personally, I've got pumpkins to carve, a face to be painted and the Monster Mash to dance to. . Life is FUN if you want it to be! I hope that YOUR day is amazing and full of mischief! . . . . . . . . . #halloween2018 #halloweenunicorncostume #motivationdust #motivationdaily #halloweencostume2018 #momswhoareunicorns #unicornmoms #havefun #dontbesoboring
Familia Coco won the town Halloween costume contest last weekend! I can’t tell you how happy I am that WE did this together! Even Memphis, our trusty alebrije, got in in the action. You can see him peeking out behind Benjamin. . It’s no so much that we won, but it’s that we did it together, as a family! I’m so thankful for them! . . . . . . . #halloweenfamilycostume2018 #halloweencoco #cocofamily #cocofamilycostume #cococostume2018 #grouphalloweencostume2018 #raisingboys #halloween2018costumes
