Hi my name is Aubry and I used to hate olives but now I can eat them straight from the jar 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ Add a few more things to that list like mushrooms, kale, salmon, tilapia and shrimp 🍤 and you have new foods I’ve started eating within the last year. • My health and fitness journey has pushed me out of my comfort zone in so many ways. All of them have been positive. I ain’t mad about it 💁🏻‍♀️👊🏼 • • • • • • #newfoods #trynewthings #trynewfoods #cleaneatingjourney #olives #fish #mushrooms #healthylife #chocolatelab #dogmom #engagedlife #sweatingforthewedding #healthyhacks #foodisfuel #cleaneats #boymom #futurelyon #iowalife #engagedlife #bonusmom #smalltowngirl #iowagirl #smalltownlife

...so, still don't have time to meal prep, plan healthy eats, or get your movement on? . I didn't either...and I know what that feels like. 👎 . Being a virtual health coach has helped me see how important nutrition and physical activity is to how we feel... So... ... I MAKE time for stuff that makes me feel better, look better, and BE better. . I'm not perfect but, I'm aware and I try to live with balance. I know what NOT doing these things feels like and I CHOOSE better...MOST of the time. . YOU don't have to think "perfection" when it comes to getting healthy...that's too hard and (I believe) unrealistic. ... . You just have to think "better than I WAS and healthier every day" 👍
Even from an airplane the Mississippi is an easy way to know when I'm back in Iowa 🌽 With no clouds to block the view it was so mesmerizing to gaze out the window the whole way from O'hare to Cedar Rapids . . . #iowagirl #mississippiriver #airplane #photography #flyinghome #iowa
YES, he can touch his nose with his tongue and deep down he loves kisses from mom. ❤ Super proud of this kiddo! He earned an award today at school after a very challenging start to first grade. We're so proud of him because he never gave up. First grade is like 10 steps up from Kindergarten and for our high energy, fun loving kiddo it was tough to well....sit still and focus. ❤ He has grown into quite the young man over the last few months. P.S. we are extremely grateful for the school district our kiddos are in, kudos to all the teacher out there ✌ #momlifebelike #mommode #doscarythings #reveal #bikinicompetitionprep #stressedmom #workingmomprobs #introverting #cubscoutmom #busymomma #loveyourself1st #farmgirls #positivevibesalways   #dancemomlife #sciencenerd #collegesweethearts #tallgirlprobs #newhomebuild #debtfreelife #dateyourhusband #peanutbutteraddiction #labrat #dreambigdreams #iowagirl
As I sit here in my driveway watching the wind blow the trees, I’m feeling impressed. . If you would have told me last year that at this time I would be coaching and leading an amazing group of women about their self love and fitness... I would have straight up laughed in your face. I always told myself that life just wasn’t going to be as good as I wanted it to be. I day dreamed ALLL DDAAYYYY LONGGGG about the dream job I wanted, how happy I would be without anxiety, how I would be the most positive person with a load of money... but I NEVER thought I could actually achieve those things. That was my problem. I’m great at daydreaming and imagining but I struggled with taking action. . Now? I’m taking some action.
Ever ready for your day to be over but you still have a hundred things left to do? That’s how my Thursday is going. Can’t find a charger to save my life, Amazon is loving it. Snuggled up in this cardigan with my yoga pants is definitely the way to go.

Special person day at Natalie’s school meant a lot to me... It started with the kids singing, “You Are My Sunshine 🎶” to us ❤️ So often we miss out on these moments with our kids due to work and it felt good to be there for our little girl!! 😍 Do your kiddos have days like this at school? Or muffins for mom/donuts for dad type stuff? ******************************** #kindergartenmom #specialmomentsinlife #mamatime #letthesunshine #blessedmommy #workingmamas #fillyourcupfirst #familyliving #kidsactivities #maketimeforyou #lovethismoment #daughterandmother #kindergartenart #thatmomlife #teachthemearly #followyourdream #timeslowdownplease #mommylovesyousomuch #illinoislife #kidsarethebest #changemakers #iowagirl #feedyourspirit #thankgodforyou
#warning Super Long Sappy Post ahead 👌🏻 But please, keep reading because it’s about YOU 🌸my friend. • 3 years ago I was feeling stuck. Even though I had just finished my BSN work with honors 🏆 at 50 —-> which seems like a pretty big accomplishment 🤷🏻‍♀️ I felt empty, lonely, and heavy; physically and emotionally. My children had moved on in life 🙌 and my husband was burying himself in Work 😔. I needed ...... something. Have you ever felt like that? Or maybe you do right now ➡️ ➡️➡️There’s Hope! • About that same time my coach reached out to me (YAY, and Thank you Jesus! 🙏) She asked me to join her “challenge”. I had absolutely no idea what it was, but I said YES hoping to lose that pesky 20 pounds, get some energy back, and secretly 🤫 hoping to rekindle some romance ❣️#truestory • A week later I got my box 📦 with some DVDs 📀, some cute little containers ❤️💛💚💙🧡💜 and a bag of Superfoods 🌱 💥. Okay now what? Well my coach, being brand new herself, was already running her own FB support groups #bossbabe and I jumped in connecting with the group, and driving her bat crazy 🦇🤪 with questions. • 4 months later I was feeling energy 💃 like I never had before and everyone was asking - WTH are you doing to look so amazing? So I told them to contact my coach @pineapplesandfitness. Then I thought ..... 🛑 ✋🏻 Hold Up!!! Why am I not coaching?? Sign.me.up ‼️. My first month I had 17 people lined up to start, and I knew —- THIS is it! This is what I’ve waited my whole life for. FREEDOM 🗽 One year later I earned my first Success trip to Punta Cana 🇩🇲 , and just last week to Mexico 🇲🇽 And my husband gets to go with me (Can you say ROMANCE?) AND every Thursday Beachbody deposits 💰 in my bank account for doing what I love ❤️- helping people get results, feel empowered, and take back their freaking crazy lives! And I do all that from my phone, wherever I happen to be 🏖 ☀️ 👶 ✈️ 🏡 🌳 🚲. • So thank you to each one of you who has trusted me as your coach (can I get a SHOUT from ya’all??) And blessings on those who are about to find out what Being Authentically You and living Your best life is all about - It’s a Wonderful life. The journey starts now.

this morning has been a struggle, I have been bullied and talked down by so many people in my life for being different, for having a big heart that often cares to much and for being kind. Sometimes I can’t help thinking those awful words about myself are true. When you hear negative things about yourself so often it begins to stick. Ladies don’t put others down because you are unhappy with yourself it’s cruel and unnecessary. Kind is the new pretty. thank you to everyone who has been sending love and supportive messages 💕 you gotta love yourself first honey 🍯✌🏽 . . . #selflove #staypositive #iowagirl #selfie #throwbackthursday #lifequotes #bedifferent #bereal #bekind #slayqueen #selfmotivation #womenempowerment #loveyourbody #struggle #positivevibes #womenempoweringwomen #beauty #loveyourself #stophate #stopbullying #staystrong #supportwomen #stopbodyshaming #lovealways #stopshamingwomen #greeneyes #redlips

So excited for the concert tonight!!!Wearing my floral maxi dress today that’s perfect with my denim jacket for work! Blog post later tonight with all the details.
It's Throwback Thursday! Time to showcase the history of the "Iowa Girl", presented by @Pancheros. In the spirit of the @DrakeRelays we share a photo of @shelbo800 of Sioux City East High School. Shelby was an eight-time Relays champion in her high school career. In 2011, she became the first female high school student-athlete to claim three Relays titles in one year. Do you have historical artifacts and photos, newspaper clippings, stories, or other items that would help us celebrate the story of the "Iowa Girl"? Send them to history@ighsau.org for the opportunity to be showcased in a future posting! #IowaGirl #IGHSAU #TBT
SO EXCITED to announce more details about my new #FueledByFREEDOM success group starting focused on “mindful eating” and conquering our fears of food - BUT FIRST I want to get a PULSE CHECK so I know the best way to help 🤗 I have always been a workout person, but when I finally was able to find peace with my nutrition - THATS when my results & my happiness really came 💕 I recognize that not everyone system is going to work for every person - so I’m excited to help you find what works for YOU! What do you feel you need help with and want to work on? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❤️ Want to lose weight but I HATE exercise ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💙 I exercise, but struggle with nutrition ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💜 I can’t exercise due to injury/illness ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💛 LOVE food, LOVE big portions, and want to feel full ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💚 Want an easy to follow system w/o strict rules ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🧡 Want to be FREE from emotional eating and obsessing over food ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I would say mine main ones have always been 💛💚🧡 How about you?
Don’t ever let one bad day knock you down for good. You have to keep showing up to be able to do the big scary things you’ve always dreamed of. It’s not easy but you and your dreams are ALWAYS worth it!! 💙 • Some times you need a down day to gear up and come back stronger than ever! After feeling crappy yesterday and not being able to get my workout in I woke up this morning feeling rested and ready. Not only did I get my workout in but I was able to UP my weights and resistance strength! What?! 👊🏼 • Start showing up for yourself and you will be amazed at how far it takes you. I can barely believe where it’s already taking me! 💪🏼💃🏻
PA for the Big Ten Men's Tennis tournament today through Sunday. New sport for me. #trynewthings #womeninsports #sticktothescript #givemethemic #bigten #tennis #femalepaannouncer #IowaGirl
Did you really go to Ireland if you didn’t visit a #sheepfarm ?🐑🍀🐑
Sitting outside this morning and enjoying that feeling of your hard work paying off 💕 Received a big ole bonus this week that will cover my flight to Padre this summer for my coaching retreat 🙌🏼 AND came home after a negative day yesterday to a couple messages from my fitfam sharing their progress with me and how amazing they FEEL ever since they joined me ☺️ I don’t know why people think that making money & helping people have to be mutually exclusive, like you are some dirty person if you don’t help people for free 🤔 You want to travel? You want to support your family? You want to have a happy marriage that’s not strained by finance struggles? That all requires MONEY 💰 It doesn’t buy happiness, but it can help you DO the things that MAKE you happy 🙌🏼 I get to combine my passion of health & wellness and helping people, AND earn an income to travel and pay off student loans. OH AND I’m getting supa fit, creating amazing relationships, and helping people live better lives in the process....you’re right that sounds so awful 😜

When I took over as the Friday night DJ at @steelcreektacoma , the first thing I did was start introducing “new” music to Tacoma! Now this man has been around for a long time; however, not many people knew his name in this area. Fast forward six months and now I have people requesting his music by name. This Iowa girl loves her some #texascountry and @aaronwatsonmusic is one of my all time favs to two step to! What an amazing show! My love and I even two stepped to “That Look” LIVE!!! Feeling very blessed right now. #cmt #nashville #texasmusic #godblesstexas #blessed #pnw #tacoma #countrygirl #country #underdog #iowagirl #texasmade
Am I the only one who can’t keep their plastic lids under control? Why are there ALWAYS more lids than containers? Do they multiply in the drawer? #mommyproblems
M U L T I - P O T E N T I A L I T E . I first heard this word on a 🎙 PODCAST (@thequoteofthedayshow @seancroxton ) and IT. IS. ME. . A MULTI-POTENTIALITE is someone who has been given GIFTS (by the Creator 🙏🏼) and is called to use them in different ways and at different times/stages of their life‼️ . The more I PRAY and work on my relationship with JESUS 🙌🏼, the more I feel his purpose for THIS STAGE of my life. . Do what you 💙 LOVE. LOVE 💙 what you do. . I can’t wait to HELP YOU HELP OTHERS‼️
Beautiful Iowa sunset. A perfect end to a perfect day. #iowagirl #iowasunset #beautiful
Do you want to know what I love the most about this coaching gig? I've always kind of felt other see me as someone who is a bit anti-social AND is never really content with where she's at. Always doing new things. Fail or succeed, always doing something. I've found a group of people who love to grow, learn, and push the limit a little bit as much as I do. I use to let the fear of what others might think of me hold me back and slowly over the course of the past three years I've learned to stop worrying. We have all been created with traits which make us unique. I FINALLY see my tenacity as a gift. I feel more alive and there is more positive energy when I set it free. So free it shall be. So if you're ready to love the you you already are (does that sentence even make sense?!?!) let's chat. I'd love to help you along the way❤ #beyou #doscarythings #reveal #bikinicompetitionprep #stressedmom #workingmomprobs #introverting #cubscoutmom #busymomma #loveyourself1st #farmgirls #positivevibesalways   #dancemomlife #sciencenerd #collegesweethearts #tallgirlprobs #newhomebuild #debtfreelife #dateyourhusband #peanutbutteraddiction #labrat #dreambigdreams #iowagirl

So we literally had nothing else in the kitchen. Sooooooo.... #lazymoment
Today’s mantra! Don’t think, just keep going! Day 65/100 days of 30 min workouts. . Today was my second Shaun T workout, a #BODexclusive , and I realized what I’ve known all along “I’ll never be an Insanity girl”. Not because it’s a bad workout, it’s hard AF, but plyometrics and me just don’t get along very well🤣 If you are into fitness you may have your soulmate workout. I love a good mix of weights with cardio. Gone are the days I pound the treadmill and do 3 sets of weights at the gym though, all my workouts are at home. Gone are the days of calorie counting and portion control! It works and I’ve seen great results with strict diets and regiments, but if you are cutting out things you love, I’m sorry to say, it’s not realistic for longevity. . Find your soulmate workout, learn to have the foods you love with no restrictions but still get results. . I mix things up and do what I can, when I can. I don’t stress about competing with who is doing more than me or who is getting better results than me. I’m on my own journey and taking others with me! . I’m in a good place. I want you to be too! Don’t think, just keep going. #justkeepgoing #soulmateworkout #intermittentfastinggirl

I wish I was one of those people that never gets sick, but I’m not. So I’ll do the best I can to feel better and that includes: superfoods shake ✅, sleep 😴, reality tv 📺, laying on the couch 🛋, drinking water 💦 and snuggling with a cozy blanket ❤️. #sickathome #tomorrowwillbebetter #selfcarefirst #mommyistired #hydrateyourself #mommyissick #missmykids #iowagirl #midwestlove #restisbest #realitytvjunkie #vanderpumprules #chocolateaddict #strongmamas #imissmymom #lovemyhubbysomuch #chronicillnesses #autoimmunewarrior #illinoislife
This is one of the softest tops you will own- called softspun for a reason! And it’s on sale and so are the jeans.

That was a dang good workout in just 20 minutes 😅 Beet red face, dripping sweat, endorphins on high 🙌🏼 I switched things up today and went with a country dance workout from a different program! I decided that while I usually say “stick to one program”, it was better for me to give THIS one 100% of my effort as opposed to half a**ing the other one. . Have you gotten your sweat on today? . #healthymom #momofthree #countrygirl #midwestlife #midwestmama #iowagirl #exercise #workoutmotivation
Forgoing my typical smiley face for a second so I can be a little more real with ya. Yesterday was a little rough. About half way through my day I started to not feel so great and by dinner time I was a lump on the couch. I went to be early hoping to bounce back this morning but woke up feeling crappy so I decided it was time to practice giving myself a little grace. I’ve been going a mile a minute and it’s clear that this was an opportunity to slow down. So, I turned off my alarm, let my professors know I wasn’t going to be there today and went back to sleep. • I’m feeling quite a bit better now but still not great and as I was sipping my tea I decided enough was enough and it was time to find the joy in this situation. So I started to think about how thankful I am that I didn’t have any pressing homework yesterday so I could lay around, and how lucky I am to be married to a man who saw me feeling crappy and went out of his way to take care of me, I thought about how amazing it was that my prof willingly reschedule my presentation so I could rest and that I am slowly learning to listen to my body instead of running myself into the ground. • So maybe you need this reminder today too: sometimes it’s okay to not be overly smiley and cheerful and instead listen to your body and give it the rest it deserves.
Who loves black clothes, hats, homemade bracelets and self confidence?!?!? 🤟🏼 . Killed my workout today and felt like a badass after! This whole feeling amazing about myself is reallllyyyy starting to rock my world. . Message me if you want in on my free trial this Monday!!

Just as a power plant doesn’t “have” energy —it transforms energy— you don’t “have” any specific reality. You generate your reality. ✨ . So if you’re not happy in the story you’re in, rewrite it. Generate the reality you wish to live. . If I could do it, so can you. I created my own fairytale story and I love breathing that belief into other women like me. ❤️ . I truly believe that’s my calling and being whisked away to Mexico as a reward for living my passion is beyond anything I ever thought possible. ❤️ . Don’t settle for a life or body you don’t absolutely LOVE. You have the power to change. ✨• #bethechange #realitycheck #goodvibes #healthyliving #nurse #bsn #iowagirl #fierce #makeadifference #remake #rewind #recharge #redefine #nana #powerful
