Mamas of Boys – How do you do it?!

Cole Tress

Baby Cole is one year old! I just can’t believe it! Now that he’s mobile, I have to watch him like a hawk because he is getting into everything! We have hundreds of toys and books for him to play with … but here’s the only things he’s really interested in doing:

1) Throwing my stuff in the toilet.

2) Taking his diaper off and throwing it in the pool.

3) Playing with any cords — but mostly the one’s he’s not supposed to play with.

4) Playing with technology or throwing it in the toilet/pool.

5) Being held by me.

Obviously it would be too much to ask for him to play with some of his toys. LOL — seriously, boys will be boys.

Mamas of boys — how do you do it?!?

5 Tips to Smart (and Fit) Parenting

Do you ever wonder how smart moms juggle it all or how to effectively maximize your time?

I am thrilled to be partnering with Huggies and diapers.com on a marketing campaign sharing tips for smart parenting. The campaign is one of several I am working on right now through my digital marketing company. I also recently accepted a role as a general manager for a new business accelerator out of Crossroads Church in Cincinnati.  As you can imagine — I am juggling quite a few items at the moment. All very wonderful opportunities, but on top of my digital marketing clients, personal training, and being a mom/wife, it calls for the need to be highly productive.

A couple months back, I shared my tips for being a highly productive mama. Today, I want to share 5 tips to smart (and fit) parenting that I have discovered through trial and error, or by watching other super moms around me. Us moms are busy 24/7. We get no down time – no vacations. All of us need ways to maximize our time so we have MORE time to relax, a chance to pamper ourselves, and the opportunity to spend quality time with our family.

  1. Set the alarm for the crack of early. Most smart, successful, and highly productive moms I interface with have one thing in common – they wake up early. As hard as it can be (and tempting to hit snooze multiple times), it’s always worth getting up, showered, and organized before the kiddos wake up. I typically wake up to my alarm, get showered and ready, and then drink my coffee outside by the pool while I check and respond to emails. It’s so great to get some work accomplished in the quiet of the morning before waking up the babies.
  2. Keep the TV off and steer clear of distractions. I often go for weeks or months without even turning on the TV news in the morning. I am easily sucked into watching mindless TV, so it’s just best for me to keep it off. I also try to check social media only a few times per day. I need to get MUCH better at this because recently I have been slipping and getting a bit distracted. Yesterday, I did not put any IG posts up (my favorite social media) or spend much time checking my feed because I needed to focus hard on some hot deadlines.

    Meal Prep and grilling up some chicken on the weekend ensures that I am able to eat a quick and healthy lunch.

    Meal Prep and grilling up some chicken on the weekend ensures that I am able to eat a quick and healthy lunch.

  3. Meal Prep on Sunday. If you follow me on FB and IG, you know I am literally the worst cook on this side of the Mississippi. However, I learned from several of the fit moms I follow on Instagram, about the importance of meal prep. I am still able to eat healthy and ensure that my family has healthy foods to eat each day because of some weekend prep. This past weekend we marinated and grilled chicken breasts for lunches. We also make our egg casserole for easy/quick breakfasts through the week. Many of my clients cut up veggies and bag almonds or trail mix in snack baggies for work.
  4. Workout at home. One of my very best time saving tips is to workout at home. I do love a good lift at the gym, but it’s so easy to lace up my Under Armour running shoes and jog outside or do my Fit Pregnancy or Body After Baby DVD. My online personal training clients are extremely successful because they are able to maximize their time by working out quickly and effectively at home with my online circuits and DVDs.

    Save time by working out at home using one (or both) of my DVDs!

    Save time by working out at home using one (or both) of my DVDs! Maximize your time with effective workouts.

  5. Shop online! Wow — what a wonderful convenience of our modern culture. I rarely spend time shopping in stores (I also do 100% of my banking online) and this saves me SO much time. One of our biggest shopping list items currently is diapers for Baby Cole. I am thrilled to be able to offer all of you a discount code to purchase Huggies diapers from diapers.com. You have access to an exclusive (and time saving!) promotion for $12 off your first time purchase of a Huggies diaper case using the code WOWHUGGIES at checkout.  Click here to visit the diapers.com site and use the discount code for your purchase.

Vega Sport Energy Bars Review

Pic on the left is 6 years ago, and photos on the right are this past weekend.

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend with your families and are enjoying a fabulous start to the week. We were in the pool for most of the weekend, and it was wonderful!

This past week, I started an in-person boot camp in town. I led one last summer starting two weeks after Baby Cole was born, and it was a TON of fun. I have already really enjoyed getting to know the ladies in the boot camp, and I can’t wait to see their results. Like my online boot camp program, we are combining effective HIIT workouts with some running, and proper nutrition. I am following the eat clean challenge that I created with my online and in-person boot campers, and I feel SO good. Honestly, even after delivering two babies, I believe that I am the healthiest I have ever been.  Here is a photo (left) from 6 years ago before I had any babies or the stresses of my own company and a house to manage, and two photos (right) from this past weekend. It IS possible to be fitter and more healthy AFTER having babies.

A huge part of my personal wellness plan includes a clean, whole foods, balanced approach to my food intake. 6 years ago, I was careful to “count calories,” but not necessarily eat the nutrient dense foods that my body needed to fuel my workouts. Now, I don’t count calories at all or measure portion sizes, macros, etc. I eat clean, whole foods to satisfaction.

The chocolate coconut almond bars were SO delish.

The chocolate coconut almond bars were SO delish.

My current food intake is a high veggies, high protein, high [good] fats plan. Recently, I had the opportunity to taste-test the Vega Sport Energy Bars as part of a SweatPink and Vega Sport Fuel Your Better campaign. The box I received was chocolate coconut almond. Oh my goodness … SOOOOO delish. I am a sucker for anything chocolate and almond, and adding in the coconut gave the bars a perfect taste.

The Vega Sport website says the following about these amazing bars:

“Moist and delicious, plant-based Vega Sport Energy Bar is easy to eat mid-workout to help you go the distance. Each function-focused bar features:

  • 27 g carbs from whole food ingredients
  • High and low glycemic carbohydrates for immediate and sustained energy
  • 1 g Omega-3

Formulated by Brendan Brazier, professional Ironman triathlete and bestselling author on performance nutrition, Vega Sport Energy Bar is part of the three-stage Vega Sport Nutrition System.

Non-GMO, gluten-free, and made without artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners, enjoy Vega Sport Energy Bars in Chocolate Coconut Almond and Apple Cherry flavors.”

Visit the Vega Sport Fuel Your Better to learn more about how to properly fuel your body for workouts. The site is fabulous and very informative. It covers the topics of motivation, overtraining, stamina, muscle burn, and the importance of proper fueling.

I am so thrilled that I had the opportunity to taste-test the Vega Sport Energy Bars, and I definitely recommend that you try them as well! Enjoy.

Trip to Seattle!

This week, the hubs and I flew to Seattle for a 5 day vacation/business trip … without the babies! I am currently on the flight back to Ohio (hubs is in Seattle for a few more days), and I cannot want to see Baby Cole and Emma. This was my first trip away from Cole, and only my second or third away from Emma.

We took a run up to Kerry Park for a great view and visited the Space Needle on the way back.

We took a run up to Kerry Park for a great view and visited the Space Needle on the way back.

We had never been to Seattle, so we had a ton of fun exploring the city and surrounding area. The first two days, we stayed with two of our friends from college, and were able to get a great tour of Ballard, Seattle with the guys. We also visited Rattlesnake park and hiked up a mountain for a beautiful view. The trip highlight was likely visiting Pike Place several times and enjoying a LOT of amazing local food at both the market and small restaurants.

It was rainy for our first two days of sight seeing, but the weather cleared up on the third day!

It was rainy for our first two days of sight-seeing, but the weather cleared up on the third day!

The hubs and I decided to stay fairly close to our eastern time schedule, so we woke up around 5 a.m. pacific every day to get an early cup of coffee and hit a few fun spots for breakfast. I love being out in a city early in the morning while it’s still peaceful and the sun is just starting to come up.

We had fun with our friends from college!

Before heading to Seattle, we expected the weather to be rainy from the very little we knew of the area. Well, we were right. It was rainy. But … it was also sunny. The weather changed from hour to hour, and we were able to enjoy indoor activities in addition to outdoor runs and hikes.

I definitely enjoyed some delicious desserts while I was in Seattle.

I definitely enjoyed some delicious desserts while I was in Seattle.

As I mentioned earlier, this was my first trip without Baby Cole. And it was tough. We had toyed with the idea of bringing him along, but ultimately decided to leave him home and get some extra help for my mom who was scheduled to watch Miss Emma. It was HARD to leave him. The first evening we were in Seattle, I really regretted going. I missed Baby Cole and he was having a hard time with me away as well. By the second and third days, we were both getting a bit more used to being apart, and I was able to enjoy some of life’s little kid-less pleasures — like 1) going to the bathroom with the door closed. 2) drinking my coffee in peace. 3) eating anything without two little birds whining for a bit. 4) traveling without a car seat, diaper bag, pack-n-play, bottles (you get the picture). There were definitely some major advantages to traveling in Seattle without a baby. However, every time I saw a baby or toddler on the street, it made me miss the kiddos.

We enjoyed an awesome hike with my girlfriend from college at Rattlesnake park.

I am so glad that I can say I have visited Seattle. I had a great time and really enjoy the city. If I had to do it all over again, I would leave for one or two nights versus 5 days. I did FaceTime with Emma and Cole yesterday, and that was a huge mistake! Cole lost it and I started missing him even more!

One of our favorite spots was Pike Place. We went there several times, and our hotel was just a few blocks away.

It’s about 7.30 pacific, and I will be with my babies by 7 p.m. ET (assuming I don’t hit any travel delays). It’s a LONG travel day, but thankfully I was able to get WiFi on the plane and will be working on several projects while I fly!  I cannot wait to see my babies!!!

Mother’s Day Giveaway!

We are installing a pool and cannot wait to swim!

We are installing a pool and cannot wait to swim!

It’s amazing to realize that Mother’s Day is coming up and we are almost in summer mode! Our weather in Ohio was absolutely horrendous this winter, so I am eager for consistent Spring weather and the start of summer. And guess what?!? We are installing an in-ground pool in the backyard! I am so pumped, and the kids can’t wait to swim every day this summer. We are hoping the pool is finished by next Friday.

In honor of Mother’s Day, I am holding a giveaway for YOU — fellow fit mamas and friends. I’ve had the opportunity to review a great stroller hook and yummy protein powder just for mommies. And, of course, I will add your choice of my Fit Pregnancy or Body After Baby DVD for the winner.

This makes trips to the shopping mall and grocery store much easier!

Have you ever been walking around the mall, park, or grocery store and struggling to carry you purse, plus diaper bag, plus gym bag, plus groceries, plus — and the list goes on. I know I have! Well, the Baby Bubz stroller hook is perfect for adding an extra hand. The stroller hook rotates and secures to your stroller or shopping cart with strong velcro straps. I can now leave room in my grocery cart for groceries versus my diaper bag, and purse!

Happy Mother’s Day — I want to extend a 40% discount to anyone who wants to purchase this stroller hook on Amazon. Please use the following coupon code: PQ6MUHDW. The package comes with two hooks for only $9.99. 

I also had the opportunity to enjoy some Mommi 3-in-1 protein powder in my shake this morning! I am still nursing Cole, so this is a great way to get some much-needed protein, essential vitamins, and nutrients I need to fuel my day.

Mommi_3-in-1_Launch Photo

Here is some info below from the Mommi company’s official press release.

“Most women who are pregnant or nursing aren’t aware that they need an additional 25 grams of protein daily, or between 70-95 grams in all,” said Dr. Yvonne Bohn. “It can be a challenge for women to manage weight while ensuring they are getting the extra protein, essential vitamins and nutrients they need – like DHA for the baby’s nerve and brain cell development. Mommi 3-in-1 is an easy way to get everything nutritionally women need during pregnancy in one place. It is essential for giving women and their babies a strong, healthy and wonderful start.”

Miss Emma enjoyed the protein shake too!

Miss Emma enjoyed the protein shake too!

You can purchase Mommi 3-in-1, order a sample, and get delicious recipes, weekly pregnancy tips and more, by visiting mommi.com. You can also connect with Mommi on Facebook at facebook.com/MommiLife, on Twitter at twitter.com/mommihealth, on Pinterest at pinterest.com/mommihealth and on Google+ at plus.google.com/+MommiLife.”

The package instructions said to add the powder to milk. However, I crushed up some ice, threw in a bit of water, a scoop of peanut butter, the protein powder, and had a delicious shake. Miss Emma and Baby Cole loved it to and referred to it as ice cream.

So, here’s how YOU can win the protein powder, and a copy of either my Fit Pregnancy or Body After Baby DVD!

Eat Clean Challenge Update

Week 1 (left) versus Week 3 (right). Can you see some progress?

Week 1 (left) versus Week 3 (right). Can you see some progress?

It’s been nearly four weeks since the hubs and I started our eat clean challenge. If you remember, I created an “approved” and “unapproved” foods list for us to follow. The intention was to do a “sugar detox” of sorts to get sugary treats and junk food cravings out of our system, and focus on a high protein, high fat, low carb meal plan. The approved list was very close to Paleo, but had a few “extra” items.

So, here’s a little update for you. Days 1-3 were hard … but doable. When I set my mind to something, it’s fairly easy to stick with it the first few days. In fact, I was barely even craving sugary treats since I had made up my mind not to eat them.

Then day 4-6 happened.

Wow — super rough.

On day 4 I started craving carbs like crazy. I also hit a low-carb wall and began feeling a lot of muscle fatigue while I worked out. Carbs turn into glucose and are stored as glycogen in the muscles. And the worst part was — my mood turned sour. See — carbs increase happy hormone levels in the brain.

When I hit the low-carb wall, I started to think that maybe the eat clean challenge was a stupid idea. And then I did an ab check on Thursday evening. WOW — I was already starting to see some definition. In fact, my progress after just four days was pretty significant. Also, because I cut the processed junk food out of my food intake, I wasn’t feeling gassy or bloated in the least. Seeing and feeling some good progress on day 4 got me through day 5 and 6.

We built in a cheat day on vacation!

We built-in a cheat day on vacation!

On days 5 and 6, man I was feeling the need for some treats. We made a sugar-free peanut butter cookie on Saturday evening — not very tasty. Then we made some sugar-free peanut butter cookie dough no-bake bites on Sunday with ingredients from my “approved foods” list. Holy goodness — super delish!

Since the first week, it has been far easier to eat clean! I haven’t really been craving sweets or whole grains much at all. Prior to our challenge, we had been eating pop corn and ice cream every single night. Now, I barely even think about it — success! I think my body is getting more used to my new eating routine, and I find that I’m not hungry in between meals either. I’m only drinking one cup of coffee per day, and making it a point to drink lots more water. I am finding that I am craving water versus coffee even in the morning.

One of the most significant improvements that I’ve seen is a little more subtle. Baby Cole caught a cold at church the weekend we started the challenge. He’s been dealing with a nasty cold ever since (poor guy). This entire winter, I was getting sick immediately after the kiddos got sick — there was literally no hope for me and it seemed like my immune system was totally shot. Now that I’ve completely taken out sugar and processed foods in my diet, I’ve been able to avoid catching Cole’s sickness. Coincidence? Not a chance. It’s because I’m not in taking immune-killing sugary treats on a regular basis.

The hubs and I are both feeling GREAT!

The hubs and I are both feeling GREAT!

I truly believe that the hubs and I are already looking and feeling better as a result of our eat-clean challenge.

Also, this Saturday I plan to build in a cheat-day, and we’ve built-in a few throughout the challenge (especially on vacation).  I am a huge proponent of balance and moderation, so now that we’ve re-set our systems a bit and gotten rid of select cravings, we will add some items back into the “approved foods” list. Here’s the list for the next couple weeks with new items bolded:

Approved foods:

  • Fish
  • Eggs
  • Steak
  • Chicken
  • Tuna
  • Spinach
  • Green beans
  • Green pepper
  • Cucumber
  • Onion
  • Lettuce
  • Oats
  • Sweet potato
  • Almonds
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Sugar free hard candy and popsicles
  • All-natural peanut butter
  • Fruit (one serving per day)
  • Dessert item (one serving per week)

Unapproved foods:

  • Milk
  • Yogurt
  • Cheese
  • Butter
  • Sugar and treats
  • Carbs (except complex carbs from approved foods list)
  • And anything NOT on the approved foods list

I have not lost any weight on the challenge. My goal was to redistribute weight a bit, and get some definition in my midsection. I don’t own a scale, but happened to weigh myself on vacation last week, and I am exactly the same weight as before I had Cole (5 or 6 healthy lbs heavier than before I got pregnant with Emma).

Overall, I feel GREAT, and plan to continue this lifestyle long after the challenge is over!

Reebok Skyscape: So lightweight and comfortable, you’ll forget you have them on!

Reebok Skyscape

The Reebok Skyscapes are SUPER cute!

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Reebok.

I’ve had the privilege of partnering with Reebok via a very fun FitFluential campaign to test out their new Skyscape shoes. Last week, I was thrilled to receive a super cute pair of pink Skyscape’s in the mail (perfect for my birthday week). Truthfully, I’m always looking for stylish flats that are also comfortable. I joke on my IG account all the time about how I wear workout attire 90% of the week. Many days, I’m working in a coffee shop on client websites, heading straight to the gym to train PT clients, rushing back to a digital marketing meeting, and then hitting the road to head home with the kiddos. I spend a LOT of time in my running shoes, and even though they are pink, they still give the PT vibe. I’m so glad to have the Skyscapes as an additional option.

The Reebok Skycapes are known for being, “So lightweight and comfortable, you’ll forget you have them on!” I appreciate light weight shoes and comfort is an absolute must in my world. When you’re chasing a toddler and 10 month around, it’s very important to have comfy shoes!

Here are some awesome features of the Reebok Skyscape:

  • This shoe is crafted borrowing the materials and soft molding process used to create lingerie
  • Foam material in the upper for softness and flexibility
  • Low-cut design for added mobility
  • Seamless construction for minimized rub and irritation
  • Minimal rubber accents only where needed for traction
  • Skyspring technology – features a unique design architecture designed to help support the foot and provide all day comfort
  • Only weighs 5.0 ounces

Also, when you live with a two-year-old and a 10-month-old, this next point is extremely important — Reebok Skyscapes are machine washable!!

Reebok Skyscape

The Skyscapes are so comfortable and versatile! Perfect to slip on with my workout clothes and for shopping trips.

Earlier today, I filled out a survey and review on the Reebok website for the Skyscapes. In my opinion, these shoes get a solid 4.5. I happen to have very wide feet, so the shoes fit just a tad narrow for me. In time, I’m sure they will be absolutely perfect once I am able to break them in a bit more. I am extremely happy with the shoes, and I feel very honored to have the opportunity to show them off for Reebok.

If you are looking for a super cute, stylish, comfortable casual walking shoe — look no further! The Reebok Skyscape is perfect. Hers is where you can purchase:
