Last Wednesday my son and I spent the entire day in the ER because W was lethargic and jaundice due to a genetic blood issue. He was not hospitalized because of flu symptoms, but his hemolysis was a direct result of being infected with the influenza virus 5 days earlier. The virus wiped him out and destroyed his red blood cells faster than any illness that he's had in his 6.5 years of life. This year's flu is no joke. Trust your instincts mamas.

"...if a pregnant woman — with her doctor’s blessings — can walk, jog, swim or otherwise be physically active, she may improve her own health and also, just possibly, instill an incipient love of exercise in the child growing within her."

When power walking on a treadmill, with an incline or without, pick a pace and incline that allows you to walk tall without holding on for the entire duration of your walk. Allowing your hands to swing by your side (as if you were walking outdoors) allows a natural rotation in your spine and engages more core muscles when 'walking tall'. If you need to hold on to the rails, you're limiting your core muscle engagement and most likely leaning forward—disengaging your abs and possibly creating muscle imbalances if this is your go-to form.

Same goes for the stair climber...chose a pace that allows you to stand tall while climbing—not leaning over with both hands on rails absorbing your body weight. The stairs require more cardio endurance, be sure to breathe deep belly breaths rather than shallow chest breaths. As you gain more control of your breath, you'll be able to increase your pace/level.

Make the most of your workout time! Be great mamas.

Losing weight isn’t the focus of the 60-Days of YOU! Program.

It’s just a nice side effect.

One that comes from eliminating inflammatory foods from your diet.

From losing man-made foodstuffs and artificial ingredients.

From ignoring those treats that spike your insulin over and over.

(And replacing them with foods that don’t.)

Nutrient dense foods.


Vegetables and proteins.


Things that grow from the ground, roam the earth, or swim in the sea.

Coach Katie builds our food lists toward this end.

With health in mind and balancing our HORMONAL environment (rather than weight loss).

Because this isn’t a diet.

It’s a way to be healthier (and happier), to eat in a way that’s more than theoretical.

It’s how we fill our plates in an attempt to avoid the common diseases of the Western world.

To improve our moods.

And increase our energy level.

(and yes, to lose weight if necessary.)

And it works.

If you’d like to understand more of why I started 60 Days of YOU! Program, read “How Hormones Influence Our Bodies—The Secret to Our Moms Weight Loss Success”. https://buff.ly/2CCFDSl

It’s a crash course in “why”.

(And something you should definitely check out before registration for 60-Days of YOU! fills up.)


P.S. There’s so much more to share about nutrition, self-care & fitness, Coach Katie and I could fill volumes! But in this case, experience truly is the best teacher. So if you’d like to see what 8 weeks of clean eating, a structured workout routine, and a little bit of self-care can do for your life, consider joining us for 60-Days of YOU! Registration is limited. To learn more & to register: https://buff.ly/2CGfT7O

“I love everything about the 60-Days of YOU! Program: the connectivity with other moms, the structure, challenging but reasonable workouts. I really feel as a mom you make decisions for people all day. Following "rules" is so helpful. And the timeframe is perfect, close enough to set goals, but long enough to really change habits. It’s only been 30 days and I have MUCH more energy, am more aware of what I eat and do, am stronger and have lost 10 POUNDS!”

—Testimonial from a mom in September's 60DOY program. She transformed herself, her fitness & nutrition habits, and lost 16 pounds!
