This tasty Tuesday edition brought to you by these made up stuffed peppers I made on Sunday in about 20 minutes 🤤

I can’t give you an exact recipe, but I can tell you what’s in them: 🌶ground pork
🌶taco seasoning
🌶diced tomatoes
🌶black beans
🌶cilantro
🌶mozzarella cheese 🌶and of course the bell peppers 
I baked this morning while getting ready for work to have for lunches for the week 😃

Yes it’s a crazy busy time of year, but I don’t want to eat ALL of the things over the holidays. And I can find a half hour in my week to prep ✌🏻 What’s your favorite quick and healthy food peeps?

A really cool friend of mine got me this tank top when I was pregnant 🤰🏼 with Edison ❤️ It’s crazy to believe that this time last year we were imagining what our little boy would look like and how we would be celebrating Christmas 🎄 with him this year....and now he’s really here for his first Christmas! 
I’m so grateful I had a healthy pregnancy and was able to workout throughout the whole 9 (okay LBH, more like 10) months. And now I continue to make my health a priority despite chasing after a now crawling baby 👶🏼😜 I’m even more excited that my daily workout is going to drop down to 20 MINUTES in the New Year! 🎉

Yup, I totally said 20 minutes!

And I don’t know about you, but I can find 20 minutes of TV 📺 time up to workout for 20 minutes 😏

If you are looking for a workout schedule that’s realistic that you can stick to in the new year, comment below or message me for the deets! It’s even more fun to have friends to do it together with 👭👭👭 And no I am not expecting a new workout buddy: I just still love this tank top 💁🏼‍♀️thanks Casey Lowrance 🤗

I've been the worst at remembering to take weekly #bumpdate pics. Good thing my family, who live out of town, keep asking for weekly updates 😂 they are keeping me accountable anyway and I bet I'll love looking back at the weekly progress!! This week is a big one! Stepping into the 7th month and now officially in the #thirdtrimester LOL can't believe it! This little man has been kicking my ribs on the daily and my pelvis/hips hurt all the freaking time… did I mention insomnia?? Can't wait to meet this little dude and love him already to bits regardless 💙 🤰🏼

Just like that, one month of this “INSANE” cardio program is done!! ✅ 
I’ve hesitated doing this program for a long time now. I did the live version of it in a class years ago when I was out of shape and it was nearly impossible for me then 😪Plus it’s long- like 40 minutes 5 days a week and goes to an hour next month 😳

But the truth is, I watch at LEAST an hour of TV 📺 a night....okay many nights two LBH 💁🏼‍♀️😂 And I know I’m capable of getting up 20 minutes earlier to fit in the longer ones 
I was committed to something challenging to end 2018 stronger than when I started, so here it is! 🎉

The truth is, limitations are only there if we set them ourselves 🙏🏻❤️ If you want to find an excuse, you will. If you want to find a way, you will 
I’ve been exercising for years so I needed something different for me. If you are just starting out or know you need something shorter there’s a prpgram that’s 20 MINUTES A DAY coming out in January! 😬🎉🎉🎉 I bet you can find a way to fit that in girl 😜❤️ Message me for deets- this ones going to be a whole lot of fun to kick off 2019!

✨Happy Friday✨
•
Yesterday I was in a lot of pain luckily it was a rest day but today I needed this. I needed my favorite workout to get my head back in the game and make sure I don’t let my pain or fatigue take over my day! I am going to rest a little and then go for a walk too because it’s way too gorgeous outside to miss it...Especially knowing how dreadful the weather’s been for the past 2 weeks!
•
You are a champion, you decide how your day will go. Of course there is a lot of things we don’t control but we do control our thoughts so I challenge you on this beautiful Friday to get up and move because that is one of the best thing you can do for your mind 😜

2️⃣4️⃣ weeks already?!

Baby Gove is now the size of a cantaloupe 🍈, garden eggplant 🍆, or an ear of corn 🌽 (all three apps had a different comparison 🤷🏼‍♀️)

These weeks really do FLY BY!

Feeling super thankful for all the freezer meals I made when I was pregnant 🤰🏼🙏🏻 Still eating them 😜

We got home last night after being gone a week and a half and the last thing I wanted to do was cook and food prep 😏

This was a chicken coconut curry 🍛  for the crockpot. I just threw it in last night and bam- lunch today and this week!

I just added some extra frozen veggies because veggies most 🌶🥦🍆 So tasty too!

Yes I’ve been working out while I’m in the cities 💪🏻 I just haven’t posted as much because this is what I look like every day afterwards 😅😂😂🤣🤣 No one said working out had to be glamorous 💁🏼‍♀️ Just get er done ✅!! Even if you look like a tomato 🍅 like me afterwards 🤣🤣

If you need me, I'll look like a less glamorous version of this. 🤣 Imagine runny-day-old makeup and dirty bed head... that's more realistic. 🛌 The ultrasound from the doctor showed that the babe's heartbeat is beating strong 🙌 but I have a subchronic hemmorage (SCH) next to the placenta. This basically means there was a bleed in my uterus and now it's clotting/ capturing blood and my body either has to absorb it or expel it. They aren't necessarily dangerous if you catch them when they are small but they definitely are NOT ideal either. I had a big pity party for myself last night and got all the feels out of my system...😭 Anyways, I'm on workout restriction for the next few weeks (which I'm fine with 😜) and am taking it super easy the next few days. Ben has already brought my two breakfasts in bed. 😍 He's a champ. Thankful that I can work my business from bed & that my hubs has the freedom to be home to take care of all of us. 💜💜

Ya know that time we told my dad on his bday about Baby Z and the hubby’s parents at our rehearsal dinner .
❤️
Baby Z happened a lot faster than we thought ( was hoping to finish grad school beforehand) and although this has been a difficult first trimester, mentally and physically, I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us .
❤️
We are truly blessed to be able to do this and have such a great support system .
❤️
How did you tell your grandparents to be?! Were they shocked?! .
😮
Tell me your story below! .

I get it, Mama Nature. It’s cold out. BUT YOU CANNOT BREAK ME OF MY LOVE FOR FROZEN YOGURT.🍨 I don’t care what time of the year it is. I’m eating it. That’s a fact.
-
Want to know the trick to enjoying fro-yo to the maximum?
-
Only eat a little bit at a time. Then, you can afford yourself the chance to have some every day.
-
It’ll add years to your life because you’re so fucking happy that you get to eat so much fro-yo any time you want.

So many people I talk to think they have to be 100% “good” to get the results they want health and fitness wise 
Here’s the thing: you are good already ❤️so stop beating yourself up 
And you don’t have to give up all the treats you want to reach your goals. And yes I call them treats now instead of cheats because it’s much more positive ☺️ When does cheating every lead to anything good? It doesn’t 😏

I was hungry after work today but not really ready for supper time. The old Andrea used to snack on pretzels 🥨 and junk and feel icky and guilty and skip supper 😫

The new Andrea knows she can make a healthier snack choice that will make me feel good, fill me up, and still have one treat, not cheat, that I can really savor, enjoy, and not feel guilty about 🍺

Pick the treats that are really worth it to you. The pretzels really don’t do anything for me, but this coffee beer is pretty dang good ❤️You can still have one treat, enjoy it, savor the smell, taste, etc. and then move on 
This has really helped me enjoy and savor the treats I do pick, and not have as many of them, and still reach my health and fitness goals 👊🏻 Plus who knew cucumbers 🥒were almost more crunchy and delicious than pretzels in the first place? 😜

So I want to know: what are your favorite treats that are worth it to you and which ones can you forgo? 🍿🎂🍪🍦🍕🍟🥓

Sunday’s are usually my rest day. And I REALLY wasn’t feeling like working out today 😏but sometimes that’s the best day TO workout 👊🏻 We are dealing with some hard things in our family right now and I have a very busy week coming up with my office job and holiday planning🎄

By the way, I LOVE this time of year at work so I’m excited to be busy planning all the activities, but I know it will be stressful too 😬

So since Edison was taking a nap, I took advantage of the time to take care of me. And the sweat felt so good 😅

Whatever you do on Sunday’s to recharge, do it. Take care of you. It makes it easier to handle the little stressors the week throws at you ❤️

I must say I really love my somewhat made up lunch creation for the week 😍😍😍 Harvest salad 🥗 🍁kale
🍁chicken 🍁butternut squash 🍁cranberries 🍁blue cheese 🍁radishes 🍁pumpkin seeds 🍁bacon
🍁maple vineagrete 
Inspired by other harvest salads I saw on Pinterest and just added some things I had on hand I thought would be tasty. Very healthy, filling, and a perfect lunch for this week!

A wise woman once said, “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.” 👊🏻 Okay I honestly don’t know if a woman said that, but it sounds like something a strong and intelligent woman would say so I’m going with it 😜

I have so enjoyed the workout program I have done for the last four months. Only 4 workouts a week, 3 rest days, 30-40 minutes on workouts days 
But it’s time to change it up and go outside of my comfort zone 😅 
I’m determined to end the year strong rather than phone it in 😬

So I’m committed to a program the next two months that intimidates me. It’s pure cardio madness that will be 6 days a week and sometimes up to an hour 🤪

But I know I can do this. And I’ll be proud I did 
So here we go! I’m happy I don’t have to do it alone with the other ladies I get to check in with daily 👭👭👭 If you want a girl tribe to check in with your workouts, there’s still room for you!! Just send me a message ☺️

Happy third trimester Baby Gares! It won’t be long before we get to meet you! She is getting stronger in her movements everyday and more and more active. I’m having a hard time sleeping between burning up and not feeling comfortable for long in one position. Poor hubby is feeling it too. All in all I’m still happy and beyond grateful to be caring this life inside and continue to pray for a healthy remaining pregnancy. Any recommendations on getting better sleep at night?? #28weekspregnant #7monthspregnant #happythirdtrimester #thirdtrimester #pregnancy #firsttimemomtobe

We've made it halfway... 20 weeks today. It hasn't been easy, and it only gets harder from here. But no great adventure is ever easy... If it was, it wouldn't be fun and exciting. Your daddy and I cannot wait to meet you little one.

So happy to have Brandon around tonight for supper! 👪

And apparently Edison likes mashed potatoes 🥔 as much as mom does- he gobbled them up tonight! He did pretty well with a sweet potato 🍠 and applesauce combo today too

Baby steps here, literally 😜

I’ve been trying foods everyday with him for two months now and he really hasn’t liked nor eaten much of anything so today was a win!

And totally seeing more and more of Brandon in him too ❤️

Who wants more energy in their life? 🙋🏼‍♀️ I am learning through some personal development that you don’t just get more energy: you have to work to generate it 🙌🏻 The good news is when you start to generate more energy, it’s easier to sustain in the long run 
Okay, but what about those days where you just haven’t had enough sleep because your child went to bed after 10pm and was up at 4am 🤦🏼‍♀️ Yes that was Edison for example yestready 🙄

My go to is my plant 🌱based pre workout drink 
AKA momma go juice 🥤👩‍👦 AKA magical unicorn 🦄 drink 😂

Whatever I want to call it, I know it gets me going on even those hard mornings when I’m just plain tired 💤 
Since I know there are a lot of tired mommas out there like me, I want to give away a sample of it to the next THREE ladies who sign up for my holiday survival challenge group by tomorrow! 🎁🎉 The group starts Monday and will go through the holidays and New Years!

Who wants more energy in their life? 🙋🏼‍♀️ I am learning through some personal development that you don’t just get more energy: you have to work to generate it 🙌🏻 The good news is when you start to generate more energy, it’s easier to sustain in the long run Okay, but what about those days where you just haven’t had enough sleep because your child went to bed after 10pm and was up at 4am 🤦🏼‍♀️ Yes that was Edison for example yestready 🙄 My go to is my plant 🌱based pre workout drink AKA momma go juice 🥤👩‍👦 AKA magical unicorn 🦄 drink 😂 Whatever I want to call it, I know it gets me going on even those hard mornings when I’m just plain tired 💤 Since I know there are a lot of tired mommas out there like me, I want to give away a sample of it to the next THREE ladies who sign up for my holiday survival challenge group by tomorrow! 🎁🎉 The group starts Monday and will go through the holidays and New Years!

Furbabies are supposed to be for testing out baby carriers right?!? Luckily this guy doesn’t seem to mind! This might be useful with his anxiety with the washing machine too! @babyktan

He's not the reason I DON'T workout, he's the reason I DO <3

This morning, Edison was getting a little fussy during my workout. I could have just thrown in the towel and called it a day

And honestly moms? Sometimes you DO have to quit your workout. But you got part of it in, and that's what counts!! But today, I had abs left, and I knew he wanted to be held and just to do it with me. So I put him on my lap and crunched up to Edison to finish. He loved it!

As moms, we are struggling to do so many things and be so many roles. And sleep? What's that?

But the one thing that can help with all of those daily stressors is to makw sure OUR cups get filled first. I totally believe my workout makes me a better momma to Edison

When I take care of me, I can better take care of him too

So even if your workout is shortened, or at home in the wee hours of the morning, or late at night when your kids go to bed, whatever works for you to get it done, do it momma. Do it for you and your kids.

Never my excuse. Always my reason <3

So tomorrow is my due date.  So me and gav thought we would go out today and have a meal as potentially it could be the last one as just the 2 of us.  Such an exciting thought!  During today’s  travels I picked up a new nighty which happens to be just £8 from Morrison’s and it’s probably one of the comfiest piece of material I’ve ever worn. I also like how it shows of bump so our course I had to take a bump selfie!! Hopefully soon we shall get a baby selfie!! Keep your fingers and toes crossed!! #firsttimemomtobe #duethismonth #firsttimemom #pregnancy #pregnant #octoberbaby #firsttimeparents  #babybump #momtobeblog #blogger #pregancyblogger #pregnancydiary #babygirl  #newfamily #dayinthelife #yourday

I haven’t been cooking as much as I used to. Maybe it’s being a mom and all 😜

But we really don’t eat out a lot either. I have a lot of freezer meals and most of my prep consists of chopping up veggies to add to meals or have for snacks 
But I was wanting to make some new meals today so I made tator tot hot dish- half regular tots and half broccoli 🥦 I bet you can tell which half is mine 😂

And soul soothing African peanut stew for lunches this week. I added extra veggies and leftover turkey too 🥘

I really enjoyed my time in the kitchen today ☺️❤️ What are your favorite meals to cook? 👩‍🍳

Someones had a long day at work......but if it wasn’t already hard enough to get comfy with a bump it is now. even she is kicking him.

So you may have noticed in my bio that i have a passion for singing. I always have and most probably always will.  Here is a clip of me singing one my favourite musical songs EVER!  It’s the words that i believe mean so much already. “You will be who you want to be you can choose whatever heaven grants ,as long as you can have your chance I swear I’ll give my life for you” 
I want to bring our little girl into the world knowing she wants to be who she is .not who others want her to be. I want her to grow up knowing that it is ok to be different and that no one is the same.  It’s ok to be yourself as long as your not hurting anyone Along the way. “You will be who you want to be”. I think it’s such an important message these days with everything that is going on in the world. So much stigma so much pressure to be like everyone else.  I think it’s only right that people should know it’s ok to do you!! I hope that our baby grows up knowing this and I hope we do a good job helping her along the way!! I can’t wait to find out who she will be and what she will get up to!! Always remember “be true to who you are”

So some of you may Already know that me and the other half are trying to pursue our vlogging journey.  I personally watch a lot of vlogging channels and really wanted to have a go at it myself to capture this pregnancy and the  Upcoming journey of being new parents! 
So our latest vlog is up and it is by far my favorite one we have done. 
We got given £100 pound as a gift from my auntie to spend on baby piglet so we decided to turn it into a challenge. 
Safe to say Gavs choice of shopping was a bit different to mine!! 🙊

Good morning.  Well I’m up early today as we have our final extra scan today to check on baby.  I’ve had extra scans most the way through my pregnancy because of the gestational diabetes as im sure you are aware but it can affect the weight of baby. luckily everything has been fine so far . So fingers crossed all is good in the last week. Time to find out :-). Have a great day.

I had a bit of a stressful day today 😏

It happens to all of us!! But the best thing is that I can chose to get a good night sleep and start fresh tomorrow 🤗

Oh and there were totally good moments in my day 
Like driving to work and seeing the sun rise and the blue and pink color of the sky set against the calm fields 🌾

Hearing Edison squeal and laugh when I tickled him tonight 👶🏼 And getting a quick smooch 😚 from Brandon when I gave him rides between fields to vehicles tonight 
Every day is not perfect: but I bet you can find some joy in even the tough days 💁🏼‍♀️

31 weeks... single digits in weeks until Baby K is here... I’m overwhelmed (in a good way) with all I feel we have to do to prep for our baby girl! Mommas or soon to be mommas what are some things you did or wish you did to prepare for baby’s arrival? #babygirlkatzman

I am so ready for this little madam to make an appearance now!!

It feels oh so good to be home 🏡❤️ The only thing missing is my busy farmer 👨‍🌾 So thankful for sunny weather again not only for my mood, but so he can get the crop out of the field 
It means many nights with just me and Edison, but I’m thankful this year I have a little guy to share them with 👶🏼❤️ He’s also a really good workout cheerleader in the morning 🎊😜 Besides teaching one night a week, I totally could NOT be a night workout person 
I’m tired after work and craving pjs and cuddles with Edison 👶🏼 Honestly working out at night sounds harder to me than working out before the sun rises 🌞 
What about you? Would you rather work out early morning or after work? I’d love to hear!

So it’s almost 5am in England and I’m still lay awake staring at my phone.  Tonight pregnancy insomnia has hit me like a ton of Bricks Landing on me . Although that would probably help by knocking me out 🤩 not only that but the other half has a really bad cold which as you can probably imagine is making him snore even louder than usual so this is also not helping. I’m currently lay on the sofa because it’s the only place I can get comfortable tonight.  I guess  I’ll just lay here and hope for the best I suppose!! Oh the joys!! Anyone else with me tonight?? 😴🤰🏼🙄 #firsttimemomtobe #duethismonth #firsttimemom #pregnancy #pregnant #octoberbaby #firsttimeparents  #babybump #momtobeblog #blogger #pregancyblogger #pregnancydiary #babygirl  #newfamily #dayinthelife #yourday #pregnancyinsomnia  #nosleep #wideawake #38weekspregnant

Breakfast 🥞 with a view 😍😍😍 So thankful my dad and LeighAnn are willing to share their beautiful lake home and let me stay here for several days at a time 🙏🏻 I kinda feel like a kid again- my dad even asked me to make my bed while I was here 😂😂

I myself have never been through anything like this in my life and I hope I never have to . But I have friends and family members that have lost their babies and it’s the worst thing in the world to see and trying to imagine what they have been through is actually impossible. We have a baby due soon and I already couldn’t imagine loosing her. I hope that even with this little bit of light shed it’s helps just one person that this has happened to to smile through their pain.

To often I worry about my body and what people will think. But right now I’m carrying a human being. A human being who will depend on me to be the best person I can be. To love her and she will need to me to try and love myself.  I have a fiancé who loves me no matter what I think I look like and no matter how many times I say “ look at the state of me” he always tells me I’m beautiful to him.  So Here is a picture of me lay on the sofa  with bump and stretch marks out just chilling.  Someone once said to me If you can’t take pictures of your body  confidently in pregnancy with a bump then when can you?  You know what.  I totally agree!! Be proud of your pregnancy look. 👪 #firsttimemomtobe #duethismonth #firsttimemom #pregnancy #pregnant #octoberbaby #firsttimeparents  #babybump #momtobeblog #blogger #pregancyblogger #pregnancydiary #babygirl  #newfamily #dayinthelife #yourday  #proudpregnancy #bumpproud #bumpselfie #pregnancyglow

I love posting happy things on here but tonight I need a pregnancy rant...I hope you don’t mind!! Would you like to know something that upsets me . People constantly using horror stories or saying things to try and put me off! Telling me it’s going to be the hardest day of my life and that I’ll never want to do it again.  Now I understand it’s going to be tough . I know I have a lot of pain coming up and that it’s no walk in the park but surely I have every right to see if for myself and every right to enjoy this pregnancy without worrying more by what people are saying?  It’s so lovely when  people come up to you and say “ it’s really not as bad as everyone makes out or just do what your body tells you”. Or something nice and positive like that. I had a lovely chat with a stranger in a shop the other day who had got a 4 weeks old and she said the same thing to just enjoy it and do what I need to do not what everyone else says. 
We are all different I  don’t know how I’m going to cope or how I’m going to feel and neither does anyone else! . But let’s just say I can’t wait to find out for myself!  I’m sorry for the rant but I needed to get that out!! Anyone else with me on this!?? #firsttimemomtobe #duethismonth #firsttimemom #pregnancy #pregnant #octoberbaby #firsttimeparents  #babybump #momtobeblog #blogger #pregancyblogger #pregnancydiary #babygirl  #newfamily #dayinthelife #yourday  #labour #havingababy #pregnancyrant #rant

I was trying on my beautiful bridesmaid dress for my brother and sister in law's wedding that's this Friday and I noticed a little pooch that I have never noticed before 😂

Nice thing about full length mirrors and tight dresses is they point out all of those tiny imperfections 😉

I may have lost the baby weight, but by no means did everything go back exactly where it was before 😜

But you know what? It won't usually. And that's okay! 
I have done so many healthy things for my mind, body and spirit since having Edison. And all of that self care only makes me a better human and a better mom 💖

Moms: let's work and eat well in a healthy way because we LOVE our post-partum bodies, not because we expect to have no evidence of having a baby afterwards. It feels so much better not to expect PERFECTION, but instead strive for IMPROVEMENT, do you feel me?

And I want you to know momma, that whether you had a baby 7 months ago like me or 7 years ago, you are doing an amazing job, and you are beautiful 🤗💖

It feels so much better not to expect PERFECTION, but instead strive for IMPROVEMENT, do you feel me? And I want you to know momma, that whether you had a baby 7 months ago like me or 7 years ago, you are doing an amazing job, and you are beautiful 🤗💖
When the other half comes home with all these treats which include. 
Bunch of flowers , McDonalds, dunkers , Fredos , scratch cards , piglet teddy and a flying UFO toy 😂  and when I say “what are all these for “he reply’s “ so you can think about  yourself for a minute instead of thinking about the baby and me” 😍😍

When the mother in law messages you to say she has got the baby this.....she might have to grow into it a bit 😅😅how Amazing tho!! However. I’m not sure where we are going to store this giant ted. I think it may have to live on the bed.

Time with your tribe is KEY. 🙌
.
We spent the day catching up, cracking up, and crafting brand spankin' new course content to help those new mamas in the thick of the postpartum fog. Had a ball and are so psyched to sprinkle it with our finishing touches for our next group of students.

What do you wish you had known when you were IN THE THICK of it? .

Sometimes I miss college and learning and taking exams 😳

I know that sounds odd maybe to some people, but it’s true! I miss learning more about things I’m PASSIONATE about ❤️ Lifelong learning is a whole lot of fun

And I LOVE food 😍

But I also like feeling good in my own skin and being healthy 😏

I’m so happy to have the opportunity to get certified in a nutrition learning system from the comfort of my own home 🏡 
This program is taught by a registered dietician and  nutritionist who lost over 100 pounds herself and helps others do the same without dieting and eliminating food groups 🙏🏻 It’s all about having a more positive mindset about food, eating, and the scale so you can reach your goals and have sustained weight loss 
Today I’m learning more about the science behind food and of course, the emotional aspects to why we eat not just for me, but to help the ladies I serve reach their goals too ☺️ If you want to learn more about this awesome nutritional learning system, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me! 🤗

Healthy food doesn’t have to be expensive 💁🏼‍♀️ I got all of these colorful veggies from the farmers market for under $15 this week! 👩‍🌾 Those colorful veggies you see cut up are a variety of different radishes (also some shown uncut) I didn’t think I liked radishes until I baked them: totally different, sweeter flavor! 😍

The ice cream pail is full of a big head of cabbage I got for just $2.50! I’m going to use it as a base instead of noodles 🍝 or potatoes this week

If you are on a budget and want to eat more veggies, head to your local farmers market if you have one ☝️ If you don’t, veggies like cabbage keep for a long time and they are inexpensive and versatile

65 pounds 😳

That’s what I gained in my pregnancy 🤰🏼 with Edison 
I did not plan on gaining that much weight 😏

My doctor didn’t seem to be worried as I was working out and well, TRYING to eat healthy. I may have had a bit more pizza 🍕 Mac and cheese 🧀 and dessert 🍨 than usual

I honestly didn’t think I would be able to lose the weight I gained 😞

I have always LOVED working out, but was concerned about time to do so once I became a mom. And plus, I like really love food and was really enjoying all the post baby casseroles 🥘 and desserts we were getting from people 😬

Then, a nutrition learning system came out in May just when I needed something to help me lose the weight. It’s all about changing your MINDSET about food so you can lose weight without dieting, cutting out food groups, limiting portions, etc. because for me and many others I have talked to, that ish just doesn’t work in the long run 😏

I love the positive little switches I have with food: like a “sexy salad,” 🥗 “treats” instead of “cheats,” “veggies most,” “more water, more weight loss” 
I paired this nutrition with a workout that’s just four days a week, around 30 minutes on workout days and THREE rest days......goodbye baby weight! 🙌🏻❤️ And the best part is, I didn’t have to sacrifice time with my son: he’s there watching me at home workout, sometimes joining in! 👶🏼 I didn’t have to avoid parties, going out to eat, family functions, or prep food for hours: I live my life and still am able to be in control of my food choices 🙏🏻 And I’m so dang grateful for my girl squad of other ladies to check in with on the daily and keep me accountable. The community is the secret sauce to success 👭👭👭 I always want to pay it forward and help more ladies and mommas too so I’m opening up a new group starting Monday, October 1st!! 🎉🎉 Fall is a perfect time to get into a good routine. Why not start with something that’s manageable and FUN! 🎃 
Comment below with your favorite fall emoji or send me a message! Groups kicks off Monday! ❤️
