Protein Smoothie and my go to Chocolate for Easy Lunch. Waiting on my YouFoodz delivery 📦 It was raining here this morning and felt very lazy so didn’t go to the gym and instead went and bought new activewear from #rockwear 😬 It’s cleared up now so hopefully I should be able to get a walk in before I pick the kids up from school.
6 weeks PP ————>> Almost #5monthspostpartum and feeling damn good 😏⁣ ⁣ Ya wanna know what I’m grateful for? The fact that I didn’t let my excuses win. ⁣ ⁣ Because I have PLENTY. I have an almost 5 month old....I don’t think I need to say more 😅⁣ ⁣ But I show up for myself every day because my health is a priority. I can’t give Elijah an amazing mommy if I’m not caring for myself 🔥⁣ ⁣ So my question to you: are you making your health a priority? ⁣ ⁣ As moms we have it stuck in our heads that we’re selfish for taking time for us. I’m here to tell you that is BULLSHIT. ⁣ ⁣ It would be selfish if you didn’t take time for you. Because if you’re like me and the rest of the world, you burn out and turn into a dick to everyone around you. (#sorrynotsorry because truth.)⁣ ⁣ I want you to join me for my virtual bootcamp beginning next Monday 👟 It’s like nothing I’ve ever done before and it is PERFECT for new moms like me and busy ladies in general ::⁣ ⁣ 🔅30 minute workouts⁣ 🔅4 days a week⁣ 🔅Cheat day every week⁣ 🔅Support system ⁣ ⁣ Doable AF right?! I’m so excited!!!! It’s ultimate flexibility but you still get wicked results 💪🏼 ⁣ ⁣ Not to mention it squashes every excuse you could throw at me. ⁣ ⁣ You have 30 minutes a day, 4 days a week.

My girl! My little sour patch kid...first she’s sour, then she sweet! I feel like this baby girl hit TWO and all of a sudden became a different person. Miss independent, attitude, shy, bossy, but still needs mommy around kinda girl, there’s a season for everything. I pray the season of naps and cuddles returns soon. . . . . . . . . . #chloeelizabeth16 #closeupwithchloe #mombod #minime #mommysgirl #motherhood #momsofinstagram #strongnotskinny #fit #fueledbyketones #stylishkids #fitmom #fitchick #personaltrainer #fit #twoyearsold #momstyle #strongwomen #momlife #postpartumbody #bodyafterbaby #latina #brunette #thisistwo #liftweights #toddlerlife
Last January i was so freaking frustrated! Heck, I was a health coach, did the meal plans, food plans, workout routines PLUS MORE, and my body was like “HEYYY AMIE, I DON’T CARE WHAT YA DO.... I’m just gonna keep inflating! Oh yea, by the way, i even have some extra bonuses ... CRAZY FATIGUE, ANXIETY, and ENERGY CRASHES! “ I felt awful not being able to figure out what was going on. I found no solutions. After switching my diet, restricting my diet, doing 21 day programs, what have you... my body was screaming, NOPE!!! Have you felt like that? Like nothing you do is improving your energy, your fatigue, your memory, your emotional state, YOUR BODY? Well, thank you babe Jesus, I unstuck myself from “knowing it all” and began to try something NEW! The shift in my body has been INSANE! I still treat myself. I don’t eat 100% clean 100% of the time. Oh and here is the kicker... I WORK OUT LESS AND SAVE MONEY ON FOOD! Like, WHHHAAAAAT! I’ve been sharing all my secrets within the 25FOR5 System!! You deserve to have confidence, Health, a clear mind, electric ⚡️ energy and freaking RESULTS! If you can relate to anything I have gone through... and want MORE for yourself...

Tonight was everything I hated & everything I needed!! I went out to a new trainer. I was unaware of her "Tuesday track" theme & I'm glad cause I would not have gone. She spent an hour showing us proper running form. I actually felt successful in running tonight, & definitely burned a lot of calories.. #nutrition #fitness #fitmom #healthymom #strongasamother #momstrong #health #weightlosstransformation #weightloss #healthandfitness #keto #igfitmoms #ketomama #transformation #run #runner #postpartumbody #postpartumfitness #fitmama #pushyourself #changeyourlife #workout #bootcamp #notyouraveragemom #bettertogether #CG #strongnotskinny #bodyafterbaby

#transformationtuesday ... a new fall do 💁🏻‍♀️🍂 How is that a simple hair cut can ramp up the motivation factor for all things fitness, family, and life? Something new always livens things up. I think this can parallel a lot of things in life - particularly fitness. Variety in your diet and workouts keeps things fresh and fun 💪🏼 ___ Speaking of diet and workouts and all things fitness updates, I figured I’d share since it’s been awhile....I’m hanging out around 126 lbs (I’m 5’6 1/2”) and I’m nearing the end of breastfeeding. We’ve been at once a day for the past month and a half, but today was the first day Chiara made it entirely without! At the peak of my nursing, I would fluctuate between 121-123lbs, which is super light for me. Now that my hormones are stabilizing back to normal, I’m putting on a little more muscle. It’s a process though for sure. The lower body is being stubborn and retaliating if it gets too much volume. Anyone else understand this struggle? Still trying to figure this one out. Finding the sweet spot for training intensity now that my levels of estrogen and testosterone are normal is proving more challenging than I anticipated. I’m doing home workouts 4 times a week, 30-45 minutes in total length. Sometimes straight sets, sometimes circuits. No added cardio, just the occasional stroller walk. ___ Diet: Bye-bye breastfeeding calories and macros. Actually, it’s really not like it was a sudden good-bye. This has been a gradual taper over the past several months. Every time Chiara tapered her feedings, so did my calories...almost intuitively. I’m averaging around 1900 calories per day. Protein is pretty consistent at 130g, with fats and carbs fluctuating during the week based on my training and how my body is recovering. ___ Fall goal: more muscle all over... Why? Because muscle is highly metabolic. As we age, metabolism wants to decline. All the more reason to place emphasis on keeping the lean muscle mass up... Also, because it makes me feel strong. I gain the energy and endurance I need to have for this phase of my life in Motherhood #mywhy ❤️

Look everyone... I’m a REAL mom 🤣🙃 . NEW MOM TIP: get out of the house ASAP. It helps you feel normal again (even if you are still wearing your maternity shorts, haven’t showered in 3 days, & are legit covered in sweat from wearing a super hot baby). And it’s also gonna show you that you’re basically superwoman & you can do anything 🙌🏼! . And when hubby asks you what you’re gonna buy... just tell him Target will show you what you need 😉👌🏼 . #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #breastfeeding #postpartumweightloss #bodyafterbaby #postbabybody #fitpregnancy #motherhood #newmom #fitmom #postbaby #pregnancy #mombod #birth #boymom #babywearing #newborn #momof2 #momoftwo #targetdeals #targetdoesitagain #targetclearance #babywearing #ergobaby #postpartum #targetdollarspot #wearallthebabies
Throw back to my results from my first postpartum program I completed! . It was HARD fitting in workouts with a 4, 2 year old, and a newborn. I got up at 5 am most days to get it done. I did it even when it was hard because I felt SO good doing something for ME! I loved how I felt when it was done, and my energy was increased even though I had many sleepless nights! . Through breastfeeding and sleepless nights, I still got my meal planning done with was my saving grace during the day with 3 littles tugging at me! 😜. And thank goodness my plan came with 30 meals sent to my door! . We all write our own story. If you don’t like the one you’re in, change it ♥️ . My Fall bootcamp begins prepping next week, if you’d like to learn exactly what I did postpartum so you can do it with me. Check out the link in my bio to grab your spot!
I solemnly swear to never take my ability to MOVE for granted again! Coming back from a debilitating back injury and spending the last two weeks mostly laying down reminded me that I can’t stop working on my health. #dontstopmoving #weightlossjourney #weightloss #iamacpt #cpt #nasmcertified #nasmcpt #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbabies #csectionrecovery #csectionrecovery #corerehab #restorethecore #abrehab #fitmoms #fitmomsofinstagram
😱 #thehorror
Am I still not feeling well? Yes. - Did I sleep through my alarms this morning? Yes, for 1.5 hours to be exact. - Do I currently have a screaming little one trying to rip off the bandaid I put on his knee so he would stop bleeding all over the carpet? Yes. - Do I have a million other things I could be doing right now? Yes. Especially laying on the couch watching mindless TV. - Am I going to allow these or any other excuses stop me from my workout today? Absolutely NOT today.
Happy #nationaldaughtersday to my sweet girls. . Everyday I wake up wanting to be better. I pray they see me as their role model. I pray that they always hear my voice in their ear as they walk through life, that they know encouragement, seek empowerment and know just how amazing they are. . I’m so blessed to have two daughters to hold me accountable to the life that God created for me 💕
Weight Loss Tip: Add just one fruit or veggie serving daily. Get comfortable with that, then add an extra serving until you reach 8 to 10 a day.
The days you don’t want to work out ...those are the days that you need to more than anything. I could have come up with a million excuses to not exercise today....It was pouring rain, I spent a long day with a baby and a toddler, it was already 5pm and I still had things left to do....but there’s absolutely nothing like the feeling you get when you’re finished, covered in sweat and just a little better than yesterday. Isn’t that the point with everything in life? My new goal for every day is just that...to just be a little better than the day before. #givelifehell

Lazy + fit(ish) = 🙋🏽‍♀️. It happens. I was about to start my workout when I realized my yoga mat was in the car. The car 30ft from where I was 🙈. Instead of getting it, I got a towel. Walking those extra feet was just too much 🤷🏽‍♀️😋. So yes, my new mat is a towel 🤗. _____________________________________________ Note for next time- get the yoga mat. The floor is hard!

3 ways to get vegetables in at breakfast. ••• I often hear from my 1:1 clients how difficult it is to get vegetables in at breakfast especially juggling #momlife with nursing, managing toddlers and kids, and sometimes a full time work load outside the home. Here’s a few of my sure fire ways to get ‘em in. 1️⃣ Hide them. Egg scrambles with lots of veggies. Zucchini Oatmeal (you can’t taste zucchini) Smoothie. 2️⃣ Supplement. Sure, it’s not always ideal, but when you’re in a jam something is better than nothing. I like green juice and red juice from @organifi 3️⃣ Plan it Out. Pay attention to what you’re eating everyday anyway for a week. You may find you’re eating the same 3-5 things out of habit anyway! Let’s change up the habit and ADD a serving a veggie instead of thinking about restricting and resisting. 4️⃣ Give yourself permission to eat roasted potatoes. Even though potatoes are “high in carbs” they don’t act the same way in our body as high carb processed food. Potatoes are rich in vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. Potatoes are highly statsieting and can often be used as a buffer food to prevent binging out on French fries or potato chips. Eat potatoes (and carrots) they’re delicious and often not the reason we’re left struggling. ••• A few more days to apply for the final spots of my 1:1 coaching block for the rest of year. 🔗in bio. #bsimpsonfitness #postpartumfitness #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #postpartumweightloss #healthyishappy #bodyafterbaby #momswholift #momswithmuscle #vegetable #healthyeating #cleanfood #healthymeal #deliciousfood #healthychoice #healthysnack #healthybody #healthydiet #healthybreakfast #yummyfood #healthyhabits #healthyfoodshare #healthyfoods #postpartum #flexiblediet #healthytreat #eattherainbow #foods4thought

In our challenge group, I asked them to post what or whom they were thankful for. There was no shortage of showing true appreciation for all that they have. I also appreciate the challenge groups and all that they do for me and everyone in it. I feel that These challenge groups are the key to success. If it wasn’t for these groups, staying accountable to myself would be more difficult but everyone in the group keeps me motivated and inspired.

Not sure what’s funnier... the expression on my face or the enormous gut I was sporting at nearly 42 weeks with my 3rd child 😂😳🏀. While shooting for an all natural birth, the midwife wound up having to induce me (much to my disappointment) at 42 weeks. Will was just stubborn then as he is now. 😜 I remember very clearly thinking, at 37 years old, “there’s no way Im coming back from this one”. With my first two kids, I was in my mid twenties and bounced back. I was in ballet class and dancing again within weeks of giving birth to them. But, I knew that this baby was not only BIGGER than my first two (he was 9 lbs 10oz at birth!), but my body was not happy carrying that load like it was in my 20s. Things just felt “different” this time. Fortunately, the female body is amazing😉. While I had to move slower, and pace myself in new ways, I found the path back. A new path from the ones I’d taken before but one that brought me to a place I never dreamed. Physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. The key? Sustainability. That’s it. It was something I could do everyday for the rest of my life. It was common sense nutrition mixed with the structure of a fitness program plus compassion and support from others on the same journey. That’s what I needed. Ready to find your own path?

Let them tell you that you can’t. Hear it. Smile. Nod. Let it marinate inside you and light your fire. Be pissed, but don’t show it. Then, know better and do it. Damnit, do it. - Ashwin T Broadway . I’ve had many people tell me that I couldn’t do something, and many times I believed them. . Quick storytime: I love to dance and I believed I could somehow make a career out of it. I was 13 years old and I just knew I could be anything! Unfortunately, I was too loud with my dreams and was shot down by the person who should have raised me up. . I let that day dictate my life. I would tell myself that I was not good enough to do the things I dreamt of. . How sad, right? Letting the people around you decided that you can’t achieve your dreams. . I know this is a battle for many people, and I'm here to tell you to stop listening to everyone else. They do not have to live your life, so why do they get to decide what you are capable of. . I'm 25 years old and I have learned that there are no limitations on what you CAN do. . I guess those posters in my high school were right! You can achieve what you believe! . So with that being said go out and make your dreams happen. And when your best friend, mom, or whoever tells you otherwise, simply say ”thank you but I'm still going to try!” ❤️
The only birthday present I'll ever need, my whole entire heart 😭💗
A little core work to end the day right. Because let’s face it, spare tires only belong on cars.
Guess who is back to doing frontal planks with no pain OR conning after a whole year off & healing my Diastasis 🙌🏽🙌🏽💪🏽. I wish i could've caught Sinaiah smiling & clapping her hands for me everytime i successfully held a plank. She must have know mama needed the encouragement because my road to healing from Diastasis Recti has NOT been an easy If you're a mama healing your Diastasis Recti then you know this is a HUGE accomplishment since we highly recommend holding off on performing frontal planks until you're healed. Yes even I (a physical therapist) had to over come the fear i had of reinjuring myself and trust that all the work i've put into healing my DR was paying off & that my body was telling me it's ok. IT FELT DOG GOOD!! This is the same feeling of accomplishment i want for all my mamas out therer on their healing journey because i know sometimes its frustrating. It's frustrating wanting to be able to run again or feel confident in your body but feels like your own body is holding you back. My advice to you is to DON'T GIVE UP, give your total focus to your healing journey & just do your best. No the results may not come easy & yes having to do things differently is hard but you'll be strong to the core because of it❤ SUPER excited to start helping other mamas heal that have enrolled in my DR repair Core Rehab program! Program starts again Mon Oct 8th, enrollement closes next Friday. If interested in joining too the link to join is in my bio . Have ?s don't hesitate to ask. #YouGotThis #WeGotThis #ProgressNotPerfection

SO SO SO VERY PROUD OF THIS ONE! This extremely busy mother of two young boys has been rocking this last 5.5 weeks! Down nearly 15 pounds in a healthy and sustainable way! Like most of us, Emily struggled after having her second kiddo. Making yourself a priority is so tough. Not to mention the plethora of misinformation and fad diets being shoved down our throats on the daily. She has finally found her groove! And I’m so happy to be along for the ride! Emily is confident in her nutrition plan and needed something that works for a family of four. But she needed my push with the workouts. I’m changing up her routine every week. Mostly gym workouts, with a few days training at home. We are incorporating a lot of strength training mixed with plyometrics and cardio. The goal with her workouts is for her to always be moving and keeping her heart in a working zone. Maximize that calorie burn!! @emilycarle09 I’m so very proud of you! Keep working hard! • • • #transformation #transformationtuesday #weightloss #fatloss #momlife #momfit #fitmom #fitness #fit #fitlife #fitfam #weightlossjourney #hardwork #dedication #determination #client #clientspotlight #personaltrainer #postpartum #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbaby2

One of the greatest gifts coaching has given me is meeting women from ALL over...this sweet soul and fit sister is from Canada. The first time I met her, we were both on our free trip in Punta Cana. Watching her journey as also been an incredible blessing. . Here is what she had to say about it: “This journey has not been a straight line! I’ve had highs and lows! I’ve been through super stressful situations, emotional eating and wanted to give up at times! The biggest thing for me was not focusing on the scale! I know the scale does not define me and my hard work! My journey has proven to me that I’m capable of so many things! It has allowed me to feel confident in my bikini, to fit on rides at the theme park, to feel good and not winded when I’m playing with the kids! I ultimately got my life back! I don’t get constant migraines anymore, I’m not tired every day, I finally feel human! I got my confidence back and there is no stopping me now 🙂 I am human. I have my set backs but I don’t let one bad day turn into a bad week, month or year anymore!” . Anita, you are such an inspiration to all of us and seeing all of your success this year has been so amazing to watch. 2019 is already starting off pretty insane for you with your free trip to LA for being such a leader for your team 😍 . Congratulations  on all you have done and all you will no doubt do. This is literally just the beginning for you sister!! Love you dearly!! 💗
Today’s workout was a huge mental challenge for me. Ethan woke up mid nap (which is when I normally workout) and needed to be rocked back to sleep..twice. . I paused my workout and attended to him but know what the hardest part was? The hardest part was to go back and press play afterwards. I could have easily if called it a day. Threw in the towel. But I didn’t. I did every exercise. Every round. Every rep. . I have big goals and I know if I quit I’m not going to reach them. . . . #fitmom #momfitness #momfit #momfitnessjourney #fitfam #fitfood #underarmour #newweek #newgoals #settinggoals #consistency #balance #mondaymotivation #bodyafterbaby #postpartumfitness #mombod #postpartumbody #80dayobsession #momfitchallenge
Hi 👋🏻... my name is Kylee and I...⠀ Am not a great swimmer. 🏊🏼‍♀️ ⠀ .⠀ Part of it is swimming in big bodies of water freaks me out, and I’m also just not a strong swimmer so I can’t get too far. ⠀ .⠀ When I was in preschool and at swim lessons I almost drowned and maybe that set the tone for me. I would like to learn how to be a better swimmer! But for now I hang in the shallow areas and on the beach ✌🏻☀️⠀
Let them be your reason... never your excuse 💕 All of my kids know how important physical fitness and movement are to me. My workouts never take away time from them... and to be honest, the times I do it with them around, I think they love it... and sometimes the older ones join in. Yes, my house may not be the cleanest (that's a guarantee 😉) and there may be a million loads of laundry to fold, but it's all about prioritizing. Working out and staying active is top on my to do list everyday, so I make sure to get it done... however that may be. My kids are also the number one reason as to why it's so important for me... they are never an excuse not to get it done (ok, unless we are rushing to the hospital, or some other extreme that is obviously more important). I want to teach them, I want to be a role model to them, I want to be healthy for them, I want to live long for them, and I want to be able to keep up with them. The list could go on... but you get the idea. I use them as my motivation to keep going day in and day out... and I know I'm a better mom because of it. 💕 #toppatough
“She's like an ancient artifact Something you're lucky to have found, She'll pinch the nerves in all the necks When she turns those heads around, Those heads around. Can't hold a candle to her, 'Cause all the moths get in the way And they'll begin to chew her, Entire attire until it frays. She outshines anyone, Who ever might dare to bask in The same candlelight” - Relient K . TJ would always tell me this was my song. Well, when we found out we would be having our daughter he then changed it to “This is yours and her song”, and it honestly couldn’t be more fitting. . Gemma - You are everything and more. You’re the sweetest firecracker, calm and wild, all in one. Man, how we love you.
Triceps Kisses! Who’s tried these before? 😘 I imagine you may have seen these somewhere before as part of a “Mommy & Me” workout. If I’m going to be really honest with you, “Mommy & Me” workouts are kind of BS on the actual workout front - meaning you probably aren’t going to be able to get in a real sweat-induced workout with a crying, rolling, crying, or walking baby who needs you. #realtalk What I do recommend is sneaking in BONUS exercises like this throughout the day, especially in the early months where you may not be able to fit in anything else. Doing exercises like these here and there are better than doing nothing at all. Part of motherhood is going with the flow and doing what you can when you can. Even if you can’t workout every day, you can MOVE YOUR BODY everyday. Anyone else have any favorite BONUS exercises? . . . . . #sarahaleyworkouts #keepinitreal #mommyandme #newmom #newmomworkout #noexcusemom #postpartumfitnesss #postpartumweightloss #bs #postpartumexercise #postnatalexercise #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbaby2 #bodyafterbaby3

“I didn’t loose myself when I became a mother, I found myself” . Becoming a mom has been the greatest gift in my life. It’s taught me so much about life, priorities, confidence, and what healthy really is all about. . The picture on the left is me before 4 kids. I was working out an hour a day and my idea of eating healthy was basically barely eating. I beat myself up all the time about how my body looked and was never really confident in my appearance. . On the right is now....18 months post baby number 4! I’ve nursed all 4 of my babies and worked out from home through pregnancies and after (minus my first pregnancy cause I didn’t know about in home fitness). Most of my workouts are 30-40 minutes, with simple meal plans that aren’t diets, and my whole family can follow them because we ALL need to eat healthy, not just momma. . What really amazes me about my mindset now is that I actually have MORE confidence in myself than before I was a mom. I’m stronger. I have more energy and my stomach doesn’t burn anymore like it used to from poor nutrition and anxiety. I feel amazing and I’m teaching my kids what a healthy life looks like! . I honestly can’t imagine going to the gym these days with 4 young kids, activities, and working. Someone’s always got something going on, or somewhere to be. I save so much time having my workouts available in my home and there is no excuse of “I haven’t had time to go to the gym”. . I’ve opened up 10 spots in my online virtual Fall Back Into Fitness Bootcamp. If you want snag a spot, click on the link in my bio to fill out an application! Let’s fall back into a healthy routine and end this year on a high note!
It’s not always easy but you have to learn to love it. . Learn to take pride in pushing through the hard. . THAT is how you get stronger. . THAT is how you get results. . . . #strongmomtribe #mindset #accountability #motivation #healthylife #progressnotperfection #fitmom #fitness #postpregnancy #mommytummy #losebabyweight #weightloss #strongnotskinny #justdoit #noexcuses #youcandoit #getstrong #bodyafterbaby #momstrong #strongmom
Truth: Nutrition is not my thing! But, I like the way I feel when I eat healthy. Truth: I enjoy 🍕, 🍦and 🍫 But, when I eat too much or too often 🤢 and I feel like 💩. Truth: It’s easy for me to focus on fitness and not be as disciplined with my nutrition because that’s what I’ve done in the past. But, if you constantly do what you’ve always done even though it’s not serving you, you’re doing yourself a disservice! - So, what am I going to do about it?! Am I going to wait until the new year and say I’ll start fresh then?! NOPE!! I’m going to start now, because if I keep being lax with my nutrition, I’ll end up gaining weight, feel like 💩 and have less energy then have an uphill battle to fight come January! No thanks!! - I know when I lean into where I’m struggling, invite others to join me and we tackle it together, great things happen!! So, I’m opening up a group in October that’s solely focused on nutrition. We’ll focus on our mindset as it relates to eating and create lasting lifestyle changes without depriving ourselves! I’m only opening up 10 spots so we can work together 1 on 1! Share your favorite Fall emoji or message me if you’re interested!
5 REASONS TO EXERCISE.....BESIDES LOSING WEIGHT — If you’re like most people, WEIGHT LOSS is the main force behind you wanting to get into shape. That is surely why I started 🙋🏽‍♀️ — Now don’t get me wrong, weight loss is a great goal, but it shouldn’t be your sole focus because studies out there show that people who exercise JUST to lose weight: . 📍 Not only quit sooner than people who make healthy choices for other reasons BUT 📍Don’t lose the weight long-term — So here are 5 Reasons You Should Be Exercising Even If The Scale Doesn’t Budge — 1 EXERCISE KEEPS YOUR HEART HEALTHY . 2 EXERCISE INCREASES YOUR ENERGY LEVELS (I Know....Hard To Believe) . 3 EXERCISE REDUCES STRESS AND ANXIETY . 4 EXERCISE IMPROVES YOUR MOOD . 5 EXERCISE IMPROVES THE QUALITY OF YOUR SLEEP (My Favorite) — So tell me? Why are you exercising? . . . #mealplanning #mealideas #quickmeals #quickandeasy #busymom #tiredasamother #busymomlife #momstruggles #trainforlife #liftingweights #flexibledieting #catbsafterdark #consistencyiskey #fittips #fitnessroutine #tuesdayworkout #workingout #quickworkout #fatlosshelp #weightlossadvice #fitafter40 #momswholift #intermittentfasting #afrogirlfitness #postbabybody #bodyafterbaby #tamirabarr_fit #tamirabarrfitnessgluteguide #tamirabarrfitnesslegguide
ALL the cardio ☠️. I chose this program because I knew it would challenge me, cardio is HARD! 🤬 Every minute of it is an internal dialogue of quitter talk and profanities 🙊. Not to mention that I have ‘bad’ knees and that provides me an *almost* acceptable reason to quit.....because 👉🏽 listen to your body ☝🏽. #Always . . I have a whole library of workout programs available to me but with my excuses and limiting beliefs, I’d completely cut myself off from far too many 🙅🏼‍♀️. Stuck in a plateau? Switch it up!! . So, here I am ☝🏽tackling a program that scares me. I’m in week 4 of 8 and totally D-Y-I-N-G! But still going because what doesn’t kill ya makes you stronger 👊🏽 #LearingOpportunity 😁. . I’m learning to clear my head, to control the ‘just quit voice’ and to just take a damn sec for a breath when needed 😜. And my knees.....they haven’t once granted me the reason to quit that I’d secretly kinda hoped for. I modify when needed, watch my form, slow my pace, sub in a similar move and I almost always turn jumps into steps. I’ve also come to learn that knees my are much stronger than the knees that I once knew (and made excuses for). #NonScaleVictory 🙌🏽 . What are you scared to tackle? I promise you, you’re more capable than you know 😘.
.20 pounds. . . I truly don’t live my life by the scale 🙅🏼‍♀️ because I don’t feel it fully represents the effort you put in. BUT I hopped on this morning and BOOM. I’m down ⬇️ 20 pounds and only 1 away from pre-baby weight! . . None of this would’ve been possible without the support system around me 💕 No patch can beat it. No pill can come close. . . Clean eating, exercise, and community have helped me CRUSH this milestone, and I can’t wait to reach the next one 😍 . . Got goals but don’t know where to start?! I GOT YOU. . .

#nationaldaughtersday love you the most ❤️❤️
Motherhood.🤱🏻 Full of joy and wonder and big love. ✨ But also a time where self-care can be hard. - I know that after my first baby I was NOT kind to myself. After my second baby I did a MUCH better job of caring for myself. How? I found my people, my crew, my tribe. I now make the conscious choice to surround myself with fierce women who support and lift each other up. - On that note, meet two of my fave postnatal fitness pros: @bellybootcamp and @andshemoves Their new online program #MamaReset @themamareset just might be the community you’ve been looking for! Fitness, core and pelvic floor strengthening, realistic nutrition, meal prep tips and a whole lot of self kindness, wrapped up in a supportive community of other mamas. - Head to the link in my bio to find out more or register.

10 months in vs 10 months out!! Can’t believe this big girl was in that belly! I have learned and grown so much in these 10 months. It’s been so much more than “bouncing back” I have taken new risks, furthered my education, worked on pursuing my passions, helped more clients with fitness and nutrition and worked on my own health and fitness in the process. It’s been a beautiful, messy, chaotic 10 months. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am so thankful that this pregnancy and postpartum phase has actually pushed me to take action to pursue my goals. Instead of waiting for my dreams to happen I am doing something about it. Postpartum has been about transforming ME not just my body! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #postpartum #postpartumgoals #postpartumjourney #bodyafterbaby #pregnancy #10months #pregnant #transformation #momworkout #momlife #motherhoodunplugged #momswhoworkout #fitmom #fitmama #fitmommy #momsintofitness #momstrong #fitmomsofig #strengthtraining #mamaswithmuscle #momswholift #crossfitmom #pregnancyandpostpartumathleticism #weightliftingmama #mamawithabarbell
Remember my friend I told you about a few weeks ago who was *this* close to hitting the 100 P O U N D mark in her fitness journey with our team? Well, she did it! She freakin did it!! While being a working woman. While juggling 3 kids. While running a side business. And while being newly pregnant again too! This woman continues to bust through every excuse in the book and I’m SO inspired by her and even more proud of what our team is doing, how it’s literally helping people transform, physically and financially. Congrats Virgina. You earned it babe!! ❤️
Typing this quickly in between bursts of crying/screaming/arms flailing/legs kicking/tears steaming #toddlertantrums she’s had this afternoon. Because i feel like someone out there reading this will just NEED to hear this message as much as I do. • You are their mother. They love you. You are their safe place. They need you. You are their punching bag. They cherish you. You are their home. Regardless of the crazy moments and the (multiple) times during the day you question your parenting and sanity, just remember that they were placed in your life for a reason. And hold that (and them) close to your heart. • The hard moments suck, but the good moments are blissful. Hang in there, mama (and/or grandparents like in my case...sorry mom and dad for her temper tantrums today 😬)! You’ve got this 🤟🏻💕 • Side note: this vegan pumpkin spice shakeo that I’m drinking 👆🏻 is SOOOOOOOOO GOOOD! And I’m so glad I splurged and got a box before they ran out of the limited supply, because it might just be my favorite flavor yet! 🤤
#30weeks and some change now, and feeling every bit of it thanks to toddler mom life + work. ☕️💤 Only 10 more weeks or so until we get to see our boy—who happens to be much bigger than his sister was! 💪🏻Resistance band exercises + (lighter) lifting for tonight’s gym session. • • • • #fitmom #fitmama #mombod #fitnessmotivation #fitspo #fitness #weightlifting #momswithmuscle #fitmomsofig #momswholift #toddlermom #postpartum #fitfam #homegym #bodyafterbaby #bodytransformation #liftheavy #strongmom #fitpregnancy
#transformationtuesday Paleo, low fat, low calorie, juice cleanses, obsessing over the scale...I have tried it all! Some of those things worked for a time, but I could not be consistent with them! I needed a sustainable lifestyle, not a quick fix! It is so important to find what works for YOU, and I am so glad that I have. I can now focus more on my energy levels and how I feel rather than a number on the scale! That is why I choose to share this journey. Because I am so passionate about this lifestyle, these 30 minute workouts, daily superfoods, following a nutrition plan to fuel my body. Finding that balance postpartum was challenging..But I did it, and I know you can too! So I will continue to share because I know this LIFESTYLE is the real deal!
BYE BYE BELLY! These were the only shorts I could wear for awhile. My lululemon shorts haha were laughable and out of the question. I was still in shape, but my body composition was SO different! I put them on late other night for pajamas and was 👀! And the scale hasn’t moved that much! But my inches are shedding! 💪 You can do this! The hardest part is getting started! Just do it. It’s always worth it!
Not a perfect weather day ... but it was fun Only lost 3 lures 😑😂 #girlswhofish Tuesday adventures with @thisomnijourney
This is Tina the Talking Tummy. She likes to visit - especially around the holidays. 🙊🙈 . . The good news is I can help you tell Tina that we will win the battle of the bulge this holiday season! You see 👀 I'm a personal trainer turned stay at home mom fitness junkie and I LOVE sharing my passion for fitness and nutrition with others. And coming from a person who used to devour a cheesecake by herself (no joke) - I know what it takes to kick Tina to the curb! (Bye felicia!) . . So this year I'm partnering with the infamous @melissamade and motivational master @daniellenatoni in an exclusive accountability group that will keep you on track. Come New Year's you're going to be rockin' a bod to be proud of instead of trying to cover it up. . . This group will consist of a hybrid PIYO and Max:30 calendar in addition to some of Autumns newest program 80 day obsession and A Little More Obsessed. You'll also get meal plans, serious accountability, powerful peer to peer support, education, and a TOTAL mindset shift that will EMPOWER you like never before! Oh - and did I mention we're going to have some celebrity guests pop in! (Cuz we know people 🤫) . . This group is for new customers only (you cannot be working with another coach already) cuz that's not how we roll. . . Eligible peeps drop a 💪 or comment "No more Tina!" Below and I will be in touch!
Hoy por fin de regreso a @barralates después de tener a mi Bebita 👶🏻 Constanza hace mes y medio. Hicimos mucho cardio y abdomen 💪🏼 Hubo un momento durante la clase haciendo burpees en que pensé que me moría! 😅 Sude como nunca! Tomé la clase en el nuevo fit studio de #Tijuana (Cacho) @thestudiotj 💜 se los recomiendo demasiado! Las instalaciones están wow! 🙌🏼 . . . Back to my workout class of @barralates (a combo of barre, pilates & dance) It was my first class since giving birth a month and a half ago. Today we did tons of cardio and abs. At some point during #burpees I thought I was going to pass out! 😅 I kept going and enjoyed my workout to the max! I literally need those endorphins to stay happy & active throughout the day. ✨
When you go fishing... but still need to eat healthy 😂
Day 5 -0.0 😒 -10.0lbs total Usually takes 2 days till I start losing again after eating off plan. So this is the norm 😬
Continuing to work on this ever changing body at almost 27 weeks!🤰🏻💦 One of my favorite ways to do so is incorporating resistance bands due to their versatility and effectiveness. The burn is REAL with some bands! 💕healthy mama = healthy babe #27weeks • • • • #fitmom #fitmama #mombod #fitnessmotivation #fitspo #fitness #weightlifting #momswithmuscle #fitmomsofig #momswholift #toddlermom #postpartum #fitfam #homegym #bodyafterbaby #bodytransformation #liftheavy #strongmom #fitpregnancy #flexfriday
