CONFESSION and REAL TALK #1

CONFESSION #1 - REAL TALK

The mind of a career woman, mother, girl and student.

 I often find myself in this posture throughout the day. The face of seriousness and deep thought. Some may confuse this with me being sad, angry or downright unfriendly. 

If you find me looking like this in a training session or just walking down the street, it’s really me living in my head and doing my absolute best to remember everything I need to get done. Trying so hard to stay focused. Trying so hard to be the best version of myself. Often trying so hard that I get lost in the shuffle of reality. Trying so hard I get tired of trying hard. In all honestly it leaves me feeling drained and utterly exhausted. Why do I do this to myself?

I admit it takes a lot of work for me to get out of my over analytical thinking style. I have to force myself to take breaks from putting so much pressure on myself. We can be our own worst enemy. My goal is to work on creating space to let go, laugh and just BE... Just be where I am at the moment and remind myself of how grateful I am for this life. How grateful I am for being able to do what I love and help people become the best version of their self. 

We as humans can struggle with taking our own advice. Here’s to taking a moment, stop taking ourselves so seriously and let loose a bit.

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
