Breaking Up with the CANDY GUILT

Breaking Up with the CANDY GUILT

Ok, truth, I hate Halloween.  Maybe hate is strong word, but I do not enjoy it. I used to before mom life happened.  For some reason having kids, which usually brings more magic to all the holidays makes Halloween worse not better.  I know that seems so Scrooge of me but bea...

Hey friend! I am a wife to an amazing and dedicated Air Force Pilot, as well as a mom to three very beautiful, yet sassy girls. I started my own fitness journey 10 years ago when I knew that being a new mom was not meant to make me feel the way I did.  I knew I was better than the lies I was letting the world tell me.  I set out to change myself for the better and in the process I gained a passion to help other women experience the same joy! I may love to pound out the heavy weights but I also started with simple home workouts that I know work. I have a love for the outdoors as well as traveling. I want to make sure you find that same joy, living a life you love!
