It Matters Where You Are NOW!

Have you ever reminisced about how you use to be? Maybe how skinny you looked or athletic you were in your 20's? I can't tell you how many times I've had a student come to me and say "I use to be in such great shape...." or "I use to be so strong..." Here is the problem with holding on to these "use to be" feelings. They are gone and don't exist anymore. In fact this mentality could be holding you back. Your body and mind is completely different today. Things change and the workout along with the eating patterns which may have worked for you in the past, most likely won't have the same effect now. If you hold on to the "how you once were" mentality then it's very hard to move forward and grow.

They key of knowing where to go and how to get better, is to know where you are NOW! Never jump in to something thinking you are the same person from the past or assuming you are some where that you may not be. Have I lost you? Am I making any sense?  Are you checking in with yourself to find out where you are starting from? Every day is a new day which gives you an opportunity to grow. If you're not sure how to check yourself then reach out to a professional for help in this department. This is for anything! Whether it be mental health, fitness, nutrition, skill learning or internal health, your body changes and so do you!

Speaking of reminiscing, today marks the one year anniversary of resigning from SFG Senior position from StrongFirst. It's been one helluva ride since! I do miss the old days sweating and learning along side with the best of them. Many since then have also moved on and luckily we still keep in touch! I still get to enjoy working with students all over the world to help them pass their certification whether it be SFG, RKC, or SMK along with any other fitness goals they're striving for thanks to distant coaching. I realized it's important to evaluate your life and make sure wherever you are is still working for you. If not, make it better, fix it or move on!

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me. WELCOME! First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today! Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core aga

5 Year Blog Anniversary and Giveaway

My blog was born March 10th of 2007, 5 years ago, with this  post  that started it all.  It all started 6 weeks after giving birth to my first baby.  The purpose of this blog was to share my journey of embarking as a new mother recovering from a C-section, lost strength, and fitness.  I wanted to share my struggles and perseverance in getting back to my pre-pregnancy self all while enjoying my new road in to motherhood.  I felt this was an easy and convenient way for friends and family that live all over the world, to see photos of my children and updates about our life.  What an amazing experience it  has been for me.  I never thought blogging my experiences would turn in to so much more.  Through my blogging I got the chance to connect with so many wonderful people around the world.  I never fully understood how powerful the stories would effect so many people.   It's truly been an honor.  Being able to continue to drive motivation and hope in to someones life by sharing my life
