The Busy Mom’s Home Workout Guide

The Busy Mom’s Home Workout Guide By Kim Holmes, Personal Trainer and Founder of My Fit Coach Before I had kids, I thought I was sooooooo busy! I had a full time job, a hubby and a busy social calendar….But I ALWAYS managed to find time to fit in my workouts. As a Personal Trainer with a full time schedule, I trained for marathons, strength trained 3-4 times a week AND taught 5-10 fitness classes a week (can you say overtraining much?!)  I also trained a lot of Moms with little ones and sincerely didn’t understand why they couldn’t do this too. I thought they didn’t want it bad enough. Then I had kids and I quickly understood where they were coming from. My time became insanely valuable after my kids were born. A shower was a luxury. Eating a meal in silence…donR...

Gut Health with Kathryn Trudeau

Healthy Inside & Out | Kathryn Trudeau What does it mean to be healthy? That’s not a simple question nor is there one answer. In fact, the definition of “healthy” is often linked with cultural values so each culture has its own health standards.  Regardless of what we hold to be healthy, many people who seek to become healthier and more beautiful focus on the outside.  We look for the appearance of muscles, we look at moisturizers that make our skin healthy, and we buy shampoos that promise to make our hair healthier. All of these focus on external signs of health. In fact, there is a huge emphasis on what we look like on the outside that we tend to forget that health begins on the inside… and it all starts in our stomach. ALL ABOUT THE GUT A healthy gut is more than just good digestio...

The Blueprint for a Balance Diet for your family

The Blueprint for a Balanced Diet for Your Family As moms, we balance many responsibilities and wear a lot of the hats in our family including the chef’s hat and the “doctor mom” hat.  We are master multi-taskers, and we want to do the best job possible on all fronts without neglecting any one job.  Feels impossible sometimes, right?  We hope to make things a little easier for you. I don’t need to tell you that a healthy, balanced diet is important for your entire family.  But to what extent does a healthy diet really matter?  We know that what they eat helps our children’s little bodies and brains develop, but did you know that more and more studies are showing an increasing connection between infant and child nutrition and disorders such as celiac disease, ADD/ADHD, autism, allergies, de...

The Busy Mom’s Guide To Making the Perfect Smoothie

Shannon Vistisen and Ana-Maria Janes Guest Blog Post By: Ana-Maria Janes R.H.N The busy mom’s guide to making the perfect smoothie to avoid the afternoon crash and burn Hi busy Mamas!  I’m thrilled that Shannon is having me on her blog today.  I’m Ana-Maria, but friends calls me Ana. I’m a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and a mama of 2 boys, under 2.  I’m a recovering chocolaholic and I now love to help busy moms balance their hormone with simple strategies. One foundation principle that I teach is to balance your blood sugar and that begins by having a nutritious breakfast. I know mornings can be wild, but one of the easiest ways to incorporate breakfast in your morning is with a smoothie. Smoothies are all the rage these days and with good reason.  They are nutrient dense, a quick brea...

Real Strong Mom with Melanie

Strength Training: From Intimidated to Strong & Confident When we decide we want to get fit and healthy we see strong, toned, and beautifully defined images in our head. We see active Mamas with busy kids, and healthy family habits. We desperately want this pretty picture to be our reality. But how do we get started? How do we make this dream a reality? For many years I struggled with an endless cycle of intense cardio I hated. After I had my 3rd baby the cycle started over again. I felt that to lose the baby weight I needed to push myself harder and eat less. I did this for a while becoming more and more exhausted, beat down and what many would call “skinny fat.” But then I found strength training and my life drastically changed. Strength training has been a lifesaver for me. I have f...
