Program changing. Need to stay focused because: Shoulders.

I’ve always enjoyed dabbling in other programs. Ones either created by a trainer friend of mine who lives in my town, or some of the fit pros I follow on social media. But, pre-baby, even during my pregnancy, I loved most the programs that I created for myself. Because I can write a mean program. […]

Spark creativity: Why I do other trainers programs.

Six weeks ago, I started Jessie Hilgenberg’s Home Edition workout program. It was interesting to see how many people, stood off to the sidelines of my social-media-led workout life, scratching their heads. “Aren’t you a personal trainer?” and “Why are you doing someone else’s trainer? Can’t you come up with your own?” Even… “Isn’t that […]

When You Come Full circle.

WW: Double Lift Weights Faster.

I have felt very heavy today. It seems that Baby Rebel has decided to lay at the bottom of my stomach all day long, giving me the feeling that I’m carrying around a 50-pound stone. To top it off, it’s snowing, heavily, my gym closed early today like they do the day before EVERY holiday, […]

Transformation Tuesday: Not what you expect.

This is a different kind of Transformation Tuesday post. And in it, weight isn’t going to be discussed. First, because for me, it’s never been about the number on the scale. It’s been about what I see in the mirror, how I feel every day. Even before pregnancy. I also hate that once a woman […]
