Momma Fit Podcast Episode 54: Ways To Combat Stress Eating

We all deal with being overloaded at work, dealing with family drama or heck, even a messy house (well, maybe the messy house is often). It’s times like these when stress eating strikes and, eventually, it can ruin hard-earned weight loss or healthy eating progress. While those sleeve of girl scouts’ cookies, jar of peanut butter or bag of chips may help you feel better in the moment, it isn’t likely to have a lasting, stress-relieving effect. Most likely the opposite and then a different...


Momma Fit Podcast Episode #53: Ways to Learn More To Become A Leader

We women are often blocked when it comes to asking for what we want. This holds true even when it comes to asking for additional training at work.

No matter what skill or new tool I am working on, I am becoming a more empowered of a leader when I ask for support ... and influence others based on what I've learned. Improving our...


Momma Fit Podcast Episode #52: What Is Your Fitness Type

How to pick the right workout or fitness regimen for you and your life. We all have different seasons and picking what works in that season that will work for you. I feel like fall starts a new year, if you are the age of having young children than this is your time. Even if you are not that age, anytime is a good time to start a healthy lifestyle change. If you are one that struggles with getting fit, and healthy maybe a group like setting will work for you. Question: What type of style do...


Momma Fit Podcast #51: The Night Shift and Fitness

Whoever invented the concept of “breakfast, lunch, and dinner” deserves a hearty handshake from anyone who has ever tried to get their nutrition under control while working the night shift. After all, a little structure — be it three squares daily (and maybe a couple snacks), goes a long way toward giving us the right foods at the right time to help us reach our goals, whether it’s weight loss, performance, or plain ol’ good health. Unfortunately, this can be a problem with setting goals and...


Momma Fit Podcast Episode # 50--Part 2: Being Celiac

This is part two of Being Celiac. I wanted to share some resources and tips that can help you, from my own journey of learning about gluten-free living. In the beginning, all that I could think about was the foods I couldn’t eat anymore. I think that everyone reading this would agree that some of our favorite foods contain gluten. But everything got a lot easier for me once I realized all of the delicious food I still CAN eat. “You have to make a choice when starting your gluten-free...


Momma Fit Podcast Episode #49--Part 1: Being Celiac

Being Celiac – Looking back over the many years I think I appeared a healthy, fit and the oh, so--energetic person. I am known among my friends and family for my dedicated fitness routine and healthy eating. However, I was struggling in the worst way before my diagnosis. What no one knew at that time, including me, was that my immune system was attacking my own body. I was seriously ill and getting worse every day. My illness started with the types of symptoms that you try to ignore. In the...

Life and business are anxiety provoking every single day. Yet, a certain amount of stress is necessary to drive motivation and hard work.

I also know that with failure that when I come back and get back up from my fall that anything is possible.

Momma Fit Podcast Episode #45: Why Is There A Weight Gain When You Start A Workout Program?

After a tough week at the gym, you can feel confident when you step on the scale. You've been working out regularly -- running, biking, swimming and lifting weights. Your clothes are already fitting a bit more loosely and you look better in your jeans. But when you look at the numbers on the scale, you're shocked to see that your weight has gone up instead of down. It's not uncommon to gain weight when you first start exercising, but don't get discouraged. Some of the reasons for weight gain...


Momma Fit Podcast Episode #44: Emotional Hunger

Think about this question first – Can you imagine what life would be like if we loved ourselves as much as we love our food? Some may think that is silly, but to some this is a normal feeling. I have been working with my clients to improve our self-esteem and self-worth so we can love ourselves and be a happier and healthier person inside and out. The emotional eating could be from stress, being worried, sad, anxious, or mad. Even happiness can bring on emotion of the attachment to food....

I'm learning everyday what it is like to run a business. After 10 years of going out on my own, I have managed to pick up two more side businesses.

Momma Fit Podcast Episode #41: Summer Heat Fitness

When taking on summer exercise outdoors, we need to be aware of the increase in heat and humidity. I love the heat, especially when Minnesota only gets a few months of it! It is easy to forget to replenish our bodies when it does get hot and humid outside, but it is super important to make hydration apart of your routine. Typically, our bodies are warmer than the environment. When that begins to change, our muscles regulate heat by releasing sweat, which allows the body to cool itself. But...

Traveling with Fitness Goals in Mind. Whether it’s for business, pleasure, vacation, world domination, so at some point in our lives we all depart from the comfort of our personal comfort and visit another location.

Momma Fit Podcast Episode #36: Working Your Entire Body As A Whole

We all have a favorite body part to focus on when it comes to working out. For some of us, our legs are easy to strengthen and work, while our arms are difficult to tone and strengthen. On magazine covers we see round, lifted butts and bikini-ready abs. We immediately come to the conclusion then that we need to perform endless amounts of crunches and squats to get those things. There’s no shame in wanting to shape and sculpt a certain way, but when we go overboard on focusing only on a...
