My Birth Story, Q/A!

By | October 15th, 2017|Categories: Blog Post|Tags: |0 Comments

1.) How has it been after taking the twins home? Do you have any help? Obviously it has been a huge adjustment! There is so much to learn and you kind of just get thrown into parenthood... instantly! How crazy is that?Exciting and scary all at once. Can I be completely honest? This is the most scary yet most rewarding thing I have ever done in my entire life. Yes we have a lot of family close... which has been amazing. My mom comes over in the morning for three hours almost every day so I am garunteed three hours of sleep, which is saving me. 2.) Are you going to try the same eating/sleeping patterns with the twins? Yes, but it only works so much. Some nights are better than others on sleep. Sometimes they will sleep 3-4 straight [...]

My top favorite Boppy products!

By | June 15th, 2017|Categories: Blog Post|0 Comments

Considering this is my first pregnancy (WITH TWINS!) I had quite a bit to learn about self-care! It can be extremely overwhelming to find the the best lotion to prevent stretch marks and how to sleep safely yet still comfortably. This is where teaming up with Boppy made my life 100 times easier & enjoyable!   Being a trainer and nutritionist, I am very aware (and scared of!) stretch marks. My favorite muscle group to train is abs and I do post quite a bit of fitness photos on my website and social media accounts.   There a few guidelines that I have been following consistently everyday to help avoid those dreaded stretch marks! 1.) Watching what I eat. It's important to get in all your calories for the day but it's even more important to do so in a healthy [...]

Meet Allison Couri!

By | March 16th, 2017|Categories: Blog Post|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

I had met Allison once in person a couple years back. However, when she contacted me regarding a nutrition challenge, I had no idea of her current situation. Last March, she suffered from a series of strokes and as a result was put on a very high dose of steroids. March of 2016 and August 2016 she gained roughly 45 pounds. Now, can you imagine being 22 years young and going through four strokes? I can't. I've been working with clients for two years now and have heard of many different setbacks they have had. But this one really touched me. Allison started off doing one of my nutrition challenges. This particular challenge consisted of her texting me every single thing she ate throughout the day. She would also report her calories & exercise activity & weigh in once a [...]

Meet Cass!

By | January 13th, 2017|Categories: Blog Post|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Meet Cass! One of my challengers that I have had the pleasure of working with over the past 2 months! Read below to hear more about her weight loss journey (:     1.) What inspired you to initially want to lose weight? When I started grad school, I stopped working out and got into some really poor eating habits. I knew I was not treating my body right, and I just wanted to get healthier in addition to losing weight. I would always say that I was going to start eating healthier and exercising when I wasn't so busy, but I never seemed to get less busy. I finally realized that there was never going to be a perfect time to start and that I just needed to make it a priority regardless of my schedule if I really [...]

My Love Affair With Spaghetti Squash

By | December 12th, 2016|Categories: Blog Post, Nutrition Blog Post|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Brrrrrr! It's snowing like crazy here in Madison, Wisconsin! Everytime I go to leave, Stella stands guard at the door. It's hilarious because she thinks she's so tough! Ha! Anyways, I’m at a nearby Barnes Noble blogging to you guys. I secretly love this atmosphere because I’m surrounded by college students… which makes me feel like I’m back in college! I’ve been asked a lot of questions on how I’m keeping weight off during my ACL recovery so here it is. I’m watching my nutrition pretty strictly and staying around 1200-1300 calories per day. This is hard for me because I’m a foodie! I miss going on a 3-4 mile run and feeling as if I earned a little treat. Soon enough my friends, soon enough. In the mean time, I have been very focused on finding low cal yet [...]

Home Made Chex Mix!

By | December 11th, 2016|Categories: Blog Post, Nutrition Blog Post|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Chex mix brings me back to grade school days! My friends and I would chow on it when “snack time” still existed before lunch. You would think this snack is downright awful for you. While store bought isn’t the greatest (especially due to the high amount of sodium) homemade Chex mix is quite healthy as the occasional snack! Here is why: - It provides 78% of the daily value needed for iron. This is essential in the formation of red blood cells and preventing iron-deficiency anemia! - 2% of the daily recommended calcium is found in Chex mix. - It contains 2% of the antioxidant Vitamin A and 45% of Vitamin C. You are leaving out the butter in the homemade recipe along with most of the salt! With Christmas coming up, this is a great treat to bring to [...]

What to do when life doesn’t go your way

By | December 6th, 2016|Categories: Blog Post, Lifestyle|0 Comments

Those who have followed my social media for awhile now can probably guess what inspired this post topic. For those who haven’t been, let me fill you in. This past year I was on a fitness reality show for Beachbody. It was intense! But nonetheless a great experience. I ended up not winning but learning a great deal. After arriving home, I decided to get an MRI due to knee pain. I found out I did not have an ACL…actually hadn't one for a few years and never realized it (but it explained the knee pain haha!). After my wedding, I had my knee surgery because I knew in the long run I would be glad I did it. Now, 6 weeks later, I can not tell you how many people have asked me in this time-span, “what is your [...]
