Over the past 2 weeks I feel like I’ve been getting the same question from everyone. “How do you not have any stretch marks??” . .My response? . . I have stretch marks, you just can’t see them. I have them on my hips and my breasts. The reason I don’t have them in my belly? Luck and genetics. . . I’ve had 2 kids and gained about 45-50 lbs with each and both pregnancies were completely different from each other. . . With my first, I ate whatever, rarely exercised and slept a lot. With my second, I ate fairly healthy, worked out my entire pregnancy and STILL gained the same amount as I did with my first. That’s just how my body works. . . Some women gain almost nothing, some gain a lot; some get stretch marks, some don’t. While the actions we take and the food we eat do play a role, genetics also play a big role during pregnancy. . . Some women lose their pregnancy weight in what seems like a week, it takes me at least a year. . AND THAT’S OK. . . Don’t compare your body -babies or no babies- to anybody else’s. We are all unique individuals who respond to food and exercise a little differently. . . Don’t beat your body up for not doing what you *THINK* it should look like or what you *THINK* it should be doing. . . Love every bit of your amazing body that has carried you this far into your life. . Love that body that has carried your child(ren). . Love your body if you haven’t had or are unable to have children. . . Love the body that lets you experience this great big beautiful world. . . . . #loveyourbody #celebrateyourbody #fitisajourney #betheexample #fitness #fitmom #heathy #utahfitfam #workhard #cardio #weights #barre #dontcompareyourself #youareyou #loveyourself #girlswholift #girlswholiftheavy
About Friday night... . . I met some of the most beautiful women! Not just on the outside, but beautiful souls. Every body was so open and willing to accept each other, share a little of themselves, and get their sweat on together. . . @carly.parties was amazing and so willing to help when I pitched her the idea. She is one of those people that everyone needs in their life. . . Thanks to everyone who donated @vooray @imbuilt @muscle_mx @highfitnesswj @basilswimco @evolvefitnessutah .. . And lastly, thank you to @the_emily_effect for spreading awareness and trying to #endthestigma . . . Remember that you matter, you are loved, you are wanted, and YOU ARE NOT ALONE. . . . #theemilyeffect #fitnessbringingpeopletogether #fitness #mentalhealth #youcansitwithus #fitisajourney #jiggleisgood #loveyourself #loveothers #bekind

Week 7 day 4 of Hammer n Chisel, Hammer Conditioning is done!!! Jist over a week to go round 3 of this program will be COMPLETE!!! I didnt take any measurements this time I do not see any change in myself (we are our own worst critics) but my husband sure does!! He has been mentioning a lot lately how I look like I am thinning out even more especially in my arms and legs which is awesome!!! My arms have always been a hard spot for me to thin out, I have no problem building muscle but to get them to look lean in the bicep area has always been a struggle!! Now to get my nutrition in check and get my abs to thin back out too I will be a happy girl!!! #noexcuses #getitdoneeveryday #fitforlife #healthyforlife #ilovetosparkle #fatcrying #liquidawesome #fitmomof3 #fitmumof3 #baseballmom #softballmom #healthymomof3 #healthymumof3 #fitisajourney #HnC #hammerconditioning #brokentoe #thinkIbrokeitworse #stillgettingitdone #modify #barefoot
Week 6 day 1 Hammer n Chisel, Chisel Agility for the win!! I did it barefoot and made it through with minimal discomfort from my toe!! Wish I had gotten it done earlier before the kids were all up bc I got interrupted a few times from arguments but I got it done and that is what counts!! Now to go get my bathroom finished painting and put back together too! #noexcuses #getitdoneeveryday #fitforlife #healthyforlife #ilovetosparkle #fatcrying #liquidawesome #fitmomof3 #fitmumof3 #baseballmom #softballmom #healthymomof3 #healthymumof3 #fitisajourney #HnC #chiselagility #stillpainting #bedroomisdone #needtofinishtoday
A little Hammer Build up for week 5 day 7 before I finish painting finally!! I wore my shoes again today for my workout but it was more uncomfortable today. I think it is because I wore tennis shoes when I went out to run am errand yesterday and while the shoes were comfortable I could feel my toe squish every time I moved it😖😱. Going to go back to bare feet and flip flops for another week. Anyways I feel I did good with Hammer Build Up despite going a little lighter in some moves because my shoulder would not allow any heavier. Other things I could have gone heavier but it is hard to tell from 3 years ago. Time to go paint and get my room put back together!! #noexcuses #getitdoneeveryday #fitforlife #healthyforlife #ilovetosparkle #fatcrying #liquidawesome #fitmomof3 #fitmumof3 #baseballmom #softballmom #healthymomof3 #healthymumof3 #fitisajourney #HnC #hammerbuildup #finishpainting #iwantmyroomback #missmybed #hubbycomeshometoday #kiddoscomehometoday #houseisamess
I worked out with my shoes on today 🤸‍♀️. Toe felt a little confined but all in all pretty good!!! Felt like I did a great job at Chisel Endursnce also for week 5 day 6!! Going strong despite set back from the toe!! Also getting painting done in the house!! #noexcuses #getitdoneeveryday #fitforlife #healthyforlife #ilovetosparkle #fatcrying #liquidawesome #fitmomof3 #fitmumof3 #baseballmom #softballmom #healthymomof3 #healthymumof3 #fitisajourney #HnC #chiselendurance #painting #kidsareaway #momstakingadvantage
Week 5 day 2 of Hammer n Chisel is done!! Feels so much better getting my workout done early and out of the way. Having to be out of the house by a certain time totally helps me not procrastinate at getting it done!!! Hopefully next week I can workout with my shoes on again. Feeling thankful I can still do it though without my shoes!! Feeling a bit stuck that I havent gone up for the heavy weights, but not sure I feel ready in my shoulder to press 25lbs over my head. That just tells me right there to get out of my head and try it!! Gotta get uncomfortable to make a change!! #noexcuses #getitdoneeveryday #fitforlife #healthyforlife #ilovetosparkle #fatcrying #liquidawesome #fitmomof3 #fitmumof3 #baseballmom #softballmom #healthymomof3 #healthymumof3 #fitisajourney #HnC #hammerpower #healthyisajourney
Week 4 day 5 of Hammer n Chisel is done!! I switched it up a little today and did The Masters Cardio because I knew there was NO WAY my toe would survive Chisel Agility. The point is I didnt let an excuse stop me!! I pushed play anyways and found something I knew I could do!! When I did this program 2.5+years ago, I didnt like Masters cardio, I thought it was boring and slow and not very effective. However given my circumstances stances today it was perfect and just what I needed!! We are always at different stages in life, that is why being healthy is a journey not a destination!! When life knocks you down, dont stay down and sulk, do a burpee to get yourself back up and keep going!! Stay strong and positive and soon enough the sun will shine again!!! #happyfriday #noexcuses #getitdoneeveryday #fitforlife #healthyforlife #ilovetosparkle #fatcrying #liquidawesome #fitmomof3 #fitmumof3 #baseballmom #softballmom #healthymomof3 #healthymumof3 #fitisajourney #HnC #masterscardio #healthyisawayoflife #fitisnotadestination #brokentoeworkout #dowhatworksforyou
Week 4 day 4 of Hammer n Chisel. Today was Iso speed Hammer! This is another favorite of mine!! Short and sweet but still work!! Today was also workout #3 with the broken toe. It happened Monday morning before my workout but I was already dressed and ready to workout, yesterday I was worried about putting on my workout shoe. I got it on but definitely feel like the shoe made my toe hurt worse than the workout! Today I went with no shoe and felt much better!! Just another positive of working out at home vs a gym!! #noexcuses #getitdoneeveryday #fitforlife #healthyforlife #ilovetosparkle #fatcrying #liquidawesome #fitmomof3 #fitmumof3 #baseballmom #softballmom #healthymomof3 #healthymumof3 #fitisajourney #HnC #isospeedhammer #hammernchisel
Where do I start? This past weekend was exactly what my soul needed. . . When I first signed up for the first ever HIGH Fitness instructor convention, I was a little apprehensive. I kept questioning whether or not it would be worth it, if I would enjoy myself, etc. I am SO glad I decided to go! You guys... it was AMAZING. . . . I had been struggling with HIGH lately. It has NOTHING to do with the format itself, or anything like that, just some personal insecurities mixed with my geographic location. Thoughts of quitting HIGH had been creeping into my brain.... Convention blew up my dwindling flame. . . . It was not only fun and good for my instructor mindset, it helped so much with my over all mind set. I never once felt less than anybody else, like I wasn’t good enough, or that I was less than. EVERYONE was hugging, laughing, crying happy tears and of course, sweating TOGETHER. I’ve grown. I’ve been humbled. I’ve come back with a renewed determination. Thank you @highfitnessemily and @goldiehighfitness for creating such an amazing format, an environment of welcoming and inclusion. Thank you @cbrownthink and @alison_geskin for being so inspirational and bad ass women 💪🏼 I could go on and on, but all you need to know is that it was all worth it and next year, I better see all you instructors there. 😊 . . . #highfitness #highfitnessconvention #tribe #fitness #aerobicsisback #cardio #pjparty #nosleep #momsgonewild #biggerbetterhigher #fitmom #alwayslearning #betheexample #youcansitwithus #fitisajourney
Got my sparkle on today with week 3 day 5 of Haamer n Chisels Hammer Plyometrics. This one is short and sweat but definitely not easy!! Then did all the exercises given as homework to the kiddos from their pitching coaches! We are doing a few moves with resistance bands to build up their strength. I added in a couple of extra stretches for them and of course heard whining and complaining, but if momma is paying money they better shut up and do it!! #fitforlife #healthyforlife #ilovetosparkle #fatcrying #liquidawesome #fitmomof3 #fitmumof3 #baseballmom #softballmom #healthymomof3 #healthymumof3 #fitisajourney #mommaknowswhattodo #dontargueorwewilldomore #summerconditioning #ifIampayingyoubetterdoit #nocryinginbaseball #nocryinginsoftball #raisingtoughkids #leadbyexame #doitwiththem #ifIcandoitsocanyou #theyareluckyIdontmakethemdomyworkouttoo
Got my sparkle on with Sagi this morning and Max Hammer today. Went up in reps and weights today and felt pretty awesome!!! #fitforlife #healthyforlife #ilovetosparkle #fatcrying #liquidawesome #fitmomof3 #fitmumof3 #baseballmom #softballmom #healthymomof3 #healthymumof3 #fitisajourney
Good morning Chisel Agility! That is one of the best ways to get your pace set for the day!!! Week 3 day 2 of Round 2 of Hammer n Chisel. My legs feel like jello right now but I love every minute of it!! #strongereveryday #fitforlife #healthyforlife #ilovetosparkle #fatcrying #liquidawesome #fitmomof3 #fitmumof3 #healthymumof3 #healthymomof3 #fitisajourney #initforlife #baseballmom #softballmom
We all have off days. Last week, if you saw my post, you know I had one. . . . It’s ok to have bad days. It’s ok to acknowledge them too! A lot of times, on social media you only see the good and unfortunately, that can lead to a lot of self doubt, comparison, and lack of confidence. . . When you have those days where everything you see on your feed makes you feel less than the amazing person you really are, UNFOLLOW PEOPLE, AND PUT YOUR PHONE AWAY. . . Don’t even look at an social media until you are in a better place, because once you start telling yourself that your life isn’t as good as someone else’s, or that you wish you looked like so and so, etc. You start to believe it. . . . You are amazingly you, and that is something no one can ever take from if as long as you believe it. . . . Now go look yourself in the mirror and say out loud: I am perfect just the way I am. I am worthy. I am loved. I deserve to feel good about myself. I am ME, and I am AWESOME. . . . . #mantra #youareawesome #fitmom #aclrecovery #aclreconstruction #acl #aclrecoveryclub #fitnessinstructor #groupfitness #highfitness #youareloved #effyourbeautystandards #betheexample #fitisajourney
⭐️Friends. It’s not about the goal or the dream you have it’s about who you become on your way to that goal⭐️
Hello Hammer Power!! Yeah definitely pushed my shoulder to the max with this one!! Essential oils will be my best friend the next 24 hours or so. The fact that I did the same weights as I did 2.5+ years ago still impresses me and I can not wait to see what the end will bring!! #strongereveryday #HammernChisel #HnC #HammerPOWER #liquidawesome #fatcrying #coveredinsparkle #ilovetosweat #shoulderisdying #pushtothemax #fitisajourney #healthyforlife #fitforlife #fitmomof3 #fitmumof3 #baseballmom #softballmom #healthymomof3 #healthymumof3

I totally love how after 2.5 years since completing #HammernChisel I am almost doing the exact same weight and reps that I was on week 8 but now in week 1❤ Just goes to show how being consistent with exercise will keep the body strong. I have lost any gains, I have just kept it in balance and my body always being challenged, by completing several different programs!! The best thing about it is now I have so much more variety in weights I can still continue to get stronger🏋️‍♀️💪. This journey is not about being skinny, it is about building a strong healthy body that I can be proud of!! If your workout doesn't challenge you, it wont change you!! Dont be afraid to switch it up, it is actually good for you!! #getoutofyourcomfortzone #gottagetuncomfortabletomakeachange #healthyforlife #fitforlife #fitisajourney #healthyisnotadestination #alwayschallengeyourself #fitmomof3 #softballmom #baseballmom

⭐️When you wish upon a Star, makes no difference who you are! Anything your heart desires will come to you!⭐️ . Fun fact I have only been to Disneyland once it was when I was 7 right after my mom died we went. Second fun fact I signed up to be a coach because I wanted a discount and to be held accountable. I DID NOT wanna run a business but then i fell in love with the products, results, community, workouts and everything that I couldn’t help but share it with others! 3rd fun fact because of everything in the second fun fact I just earned a trip to Disneyland! So my awesome coach sent me my first Mickey ears to celebrate in the colors of my fav princess jasmine! So watch out Disney I’m coming for you! **Beachbody does not guarantee any level of success or income from the Team Beachbody Coach Opportunity.
