My Thoughts Around Turning 40 Years Old - Today is my 40th Birthday

40 trips around the sun has finally come. If I’m being completely transparent with you, I’ve had a lot of anxiety and mixed emotions leading up to this day. 

Here I am. Heart is pounding as I write this. Because the truth is I’m showing up stronger, fully alive, yet more vulnerable than ever.

I’ve firmly established my identity and earned my place under the sun. Helping more people than ever hunt their goals and turn their dreams into realities. The secret is out. 

This year is going to be better than ever. So much goodness. I can’t wait to share my upcoming projects that will bring transformation to peoples lives. I look forward to strengthening relationships and creating new ones. I will continue to crush my own goals and set new ones. I’ve set the bar high and I wouldn’t have it any other way. 

Here I am at 40. Now stronger both inside and out. Loves more deeply than ever. A believer in impossible things. Comfortable in my own skin. 

No longer feels the need to ask for anyone’s approval. I know who I am!

Thank you for riding this wave with me. I will continue to show up for me
and for you. Even if it’s hard or if I don’t feel like it. Because some days can be extremely hard. Rain or shine I’ll be there, no matter what. 
This is only the beginning. Now bring it! 

This is 40

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.


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 again.  I d…

Let's Talk About Butts (Butt "on" Workouts)

To lift or not to lift, that is the question.  Despite the popular sayings, "Strong is the new Skinny" or "Strong is the New Sexy," there is still a large portion of the female population that will shy away from lifting solely due to their fear of bulking up or building too much muscle.  I'm not going to tell you that heavy weights won't help build muscle and I'm not going to deny the fact that some women can build muscle easier than others.  

Let's start with the photo below.  This is a nice example of the female backside that shows two different body types.  The woman on the left falls in the category of an ectomorph, which generally means skinny, little muscle, and a very high metabolism.  She could probably eat what she wants and stay skinny.  If she committed to a butt strengthening and enhancing program, filled with exercises such as squats, deadlifts, and kettlebell swings, developing the butt on the right would still be unlikely.  Through h…

21 Day Squat Challenge - #21DaysOfSquats

Welcome to the 4th annual Squat Challenge! 


Why Squat? Squats are one of the most beneficial exercises to practice. I could sit here and tell you how squatting makes you stronger, more conditioned, firms your legs and butt, improves digestion, increases energy and mood, but I'm sure you know the endless amount of benefits. A few people who've participated in the past squat challenges chose to share their experiences which I've shared below.

 So let's just get to squatting! Beginners are welcomed! Join our Challenge Today here and read the easy rules below! 

Do you plan on doing more than the Squat Challenge? If you want a workout plan... hundreds of people in Lauren's Playground will be doing programs like Upper Body Bliss and the Tushy Toning Transformation in conjunction with the 21 Day Squat Challenge. This year we will have a RESET program that coincides well with the Squat Challenge.…
