Another great Monday morning with #BabyBootCampEugene where family, health, and community are priorities. Cannot get over the kiddo/Momma cuteness today!! Special shout out to Sam for putting together care packages for families in California who lost all their belongings from the fires and to all of the Mommas who brought your donations to her. So proud of our #MomTribe !!
If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you. This week's #mondaymantra invites you to stop and take a moment to reframe the way you view obstacles - see them as a challenge to approach things from a different perspective. Here's to a great week, everyone! #babybootcampeugene#momstrong
Getting that stretch in after our Monday morning workout! Thank you @happyhannas Ross Park for coming out today to share your new Christmas PJ line with us and for providing the cute coloring pages for our littles.
Wk15d7: 5k with 4*100
Stride outs with walk backs. So to tell you the truth, I’m not even sure if it’s week 15 or 16. I’m debating just dropping the weekly count to fitness. I feel like my next stage is deciding on a new goal. I had wanted to run a xc race but my husband doesn’t think I’m ready yet. Now before people start getting all “how dare he!” He totally supports and recognizes the work I’ve done and the progress I’ve made. He works with athletes and has to be honest. Am i where the most competitive xc athletes are...no. Will I have a competitive meltdown if I don’t do well...yes. Yes I was a little bummed when he told me, but that alone was enough to make me want to find that next step. So here I am debating. Do I set my sights on another road race? Do I look for a low key xc race? Should I try to switch it up and try to train for an indoor track event (1000? 1500?). I just don’t know• It’s hard to continue to find new goals for yourself, but they’re important. They help direct you. And without a goal it can be easier to quit or fall off the wagon. I think that’s what happened to me over the past couple of weeks. My goal of racing a 5k was accomplished, but now what? Without the what it can be a lot easier to find a reason to skip a workout. So let’s hope I find it soon #postpartumbody#postpartum#postpartumfitness#fitness#fitnessmotivation#fitmom#fitmama#strollerfit#strollerfitness#strollerrun#strollerrunning#strollerrunner#running#runnersofinstagram#runnermom#runnermother#motherrunner#instarunners

Throwback to when SLAM DC was only open for 3 weeks and #SLAMboss @klynbergie really wanted a group pic in SLAM shirts - BUT - she didn't actually have time to take an order yet....soooo, she brought a ton of her own and passed them out so everyone could wear one! 🤣 It's safe to say the SLAM merch trend has caught on since then and on any given day you can find 10 or more mama's sporting these cute tanks all over DC 😂💁🏽 #sweatlikeamother

Yesterday I apologized to a stranger for taking up the sidewalk with my son’s ginormous chariot cougar2. It was early, she hadn’t had her coffee yet and I had basically forced her into the street as my girth was consuming the path from the coffee shop to her car. She stopped, smiled, and said “Don’t apologize, be impressed with yourself.” I smiled warmly and continued on my way home. Then I kept mulling her words over in my head...
So often as a Momma, I feel the need to apologize for pretty much everything. Perhaps society has placed this burden of perfectionist parenting on me, but I think I am more to blame. Strollers are big. Breastfeeding is natural. Kids are loud, and messy, and EMOTIONAL. But that’s how they are meant to be.
Be impressed that you created life. That you brought into the world. That it is still alive, relatively health, and 87% of the time not an asshole. Be impressed that you have clothes on (clean or not) and that you have maintained your sanity even though you haven’t really slept since you first got pregnant.
Be impressed with yourself Momma.
You are able.
Pass the pumpkin and then paint the pumpkin! Our mamas and their kiddos did a great job today! Enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend and come out tomorrow morning for Saturday Strides. Another chance to get your workout in!
It’s Fall y’all! Today we decided to whip up some Apple Pie Muffins, and they’re gluten free! Nothing says Fall to me like warm apple pie, so we made a healthier version to indulge in without the guilt!
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (certified gluten-free)
1/8 cup ground almonds
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon clove
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup applesauce
1 medium apple, grated (about 3/4 cup)
1 large egg
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or milk of choice)
Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan (or a 6 big muffin and a 12 mini-muffin) with non-stick cooking spray.
Pulse oats and ground almond in food processor for 30 seconds.
In a large bowl, stir together oats, almond, baking powder, seasonings and salt.
Add applesauce, grated apple, egg, vanilla extract, and milk.
Stir well to incorporate.
VERY IMPORTANT. Allow the mixture to set and thicken for about 3-5 minutes before spooning into your muffin pan.
Fill muffin cups almost completely full with batter. The muffins will not rise.
Bake for 30 minutes (12 minutes for mini muffins)- until the center of each oatmeal muffin is set.
ALSO VERY IMPORTANT! Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving. If you don’t allow these to cool before taking them out of the muffin pan, they will fall apart. I used a knife around the sides to make removal easier.
After cooling, they will set well. Store in a covered container in the fridge for about a week or freeze for up to 3 months! Enjoy!!
R A I N! Taking advantage of our indoor locations this morning! Join us at 9:30am for Stroller Strides at Friendly House OR Bethany Presbyterian Church. Link to register in bio. First class is Free! #FIT4MOM#strollerstrides
Such a blessing to have the opportunity to meet and work with these amazing Mommas and their sweet kiddos!! We had FIVE kids in costume today for our month long Halloween Challenge and are up to over THIRTY so far for the Month!! Good thing I've got some awesome raffle prizes coming. You Mommas sure deserve it!!
I don't think I've worked out with the same set of moms twice so far, but all of them make me step it up!

Dadda’s out of town for a business trip so Little Mister is #todaysoffice assist, or octopus if you ask him 🐙
Mompreneuring is hard. Everyday. Finding that balance of #momma and #bossbabe can make for very early mornings, super late nights, and one tired lady.
Yet, I get to spend my days (and nights) helping others achieve their wellness goals while my little comes along for the ride. I wouldn’t trade this life for any other. #blessed

❤️ MEET LAURA: We are CELEBRATING amazing people just like you. Give Laura some love.. she needs it xo
Laura loved Fit4Females right from day 1 and this is what she says...
✔️ "Not only is F4F a Fitness class, but they have created a network of moms who care about each other."
✔️ "You can actually see muscles in my arms now. And I can do battle ropes, who would have thought!" .
✔️ "I have attended a class EVERY WEEK and I use to be notorious for starting programs and stopping for a few weeks."
✔️ "Stroller fitness feels like a part of my life now. It's not something I have to do, or something I just attend because I signed up for it."
Read her story ♐️http://bit.ly/MEETLAURAFITNESSCLASS
Come and try a free class to feel better about YOU!
🍎 Laura's Best Tip: "Just GO! Get up! Even if it’s a walk to the end of the driveway. Getting up and moving is the hardest step in the right direction, once you have the momentum the rest is easy." That is GREAT ADVICE Laura❤️
Gooooood morning mamas! Happy Monday! Whether you accomplish everything on your to-do list today or just find time to get one thing done, make it count. Give your time and energy intentionally to whatever you're doing, and be present in the moment. Wishing you a wonderful week 🙌🏻💪🏻 #mondaymantra#bbceugene#livewithpurpose#momstrong
Water. Without it we would not survive. For health and wellness it is extra necessary. Unfortunately, it can be a bit boring.
Daily I drink 96-120 ounces of water depending on how much I am hands on- aka sweaty- along side my clients. Here is how I enjoy each drop:
1. First things first- 16 ounces of Earl Grey. A little caffeine to start the day, good morning!
2. Next I infuse 32 ounces with fruit to drink during my early morning sessions (the fruit is an extra treat at the end of the jar!) 3. Before my next session I like to add @vitalproteins #beautygreens , to a quick 8 ounces. This adds a pep to my box jumps and allows me to push through to second breakfast without crashing.
4. Then I refill the bottle with 16 ounces of clean crisp delicious water for my next class or client session.
5. Did you know that at least 20% of your hydration should come from your food? This afternoon orange is 87% H2O, I guess our soccer coaches knew their ish.
6. Dinner is just straight aqua, 12 ounces, there are enough flavors going on- including more edible hydration! Bonus!
6. Wyoming is cold. Even in the summer. So often before bedtime a 16 ounce mug of @aveda #tea helps warm me up so I can calm down and settle into sleep.
That’s 100 ounces. I do add an extra water bottle or bottles here or there if doing a lot of activity. Or extra Earl Grey when my little keeps me up all night and I just need a little pick me up 😴
Get creative with your water drinking, add something fun and natural!
What’s your favorite way to make your H2O awesome?

Wk15D5: brisk walk. It’s hard to believe I raced a week ago as I’m feeling so unresponsive today. I’m not sure if it’s just the heaviness of what’s going on, or if I’m not taking good care of myself but I’m feeling so heavy. My legs are like lifting bricks. My neck is kinda stiff and sore. I’m pretty sure I’m not getting sick. I’m hoping it’s just a little dehydration and my mood and that by next week I’ll be able to myself. • Coincidently @bobgearus asked for us to share where our #bobstroller has taken us for their #bob20 contest. Well my bob stroller has taken me back to myself and my body. After having my baby there was a period of time where I felt like I lost my body and self. I love my son and have complete respect for the miracle that my body made BUT the new you defiantly makes you feel different. On top of things looking differently, you also have this baby that’s essential attached to you. My Bob has allowed me to run again and be in the outdoors. I’m able to seize the day and use it. It’s brought me to racing and turning heads. It’s made me feel like a super hero of sorts because it’s allowed me to discover that I can reach my goals. We look forward to continuing to go places...together. Me, my training buddy, and Bob #postpartumbody#postpartum#postpartumfitness#fitness#fitnessmotivation#fitmom#fitmama#strollerfit#strollerfitness#strollerrun#strollerrunning#strollerrunner#running#runnersofinstagram#runnermom#runnermother#motherrunner#instarunners
