Nursing Friendly Recipes

Hi Eveyone!

When I got pregnant the first time around, I figured that the food restrictions during pregnancy would be the most limiting and that after having the baby, I’d be able to eat wherever I like again. This has definitely not been the case for me.

Both of my girls have had digestive trouble. Sienna had acid reflux and Capri has had some colic/gas issues. With Sienna, cutting out dairy helped with her reflux and made her a significantly more happy baby. So I cut out dairy for the whole year I nursed her.  [Read more…]

My new favorite Workout Tanks

If you came to my house and looked in my closet you’d probably laugh because I have about 3 times as many workout clothes as regular clothes. I just love active wear and it’s so practical for my life as a mom.

In fact, my workout outfits are often more stylish and put together than my regular outfits. There’s just something about putting on a workout outfit I love that makes my workout feel better!

I’m always on the look for new brands that I love. Some of my favorites are Athleta (of course) and Beyond Yoga. And my new favorite brand for workout tanks is Ray of Light Designs. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve gotten a sneak peak of me (and my mom and sister) sporting some of their designs.

Diastasis Recti – What you need to know

Hi Ladies,

I’ve gotten a lot of questions lately from friends who have had babies and are dealing with a separation in their abs, which is officially called Diastasis Recti.

It’s a fairly common problem, but it can be super frustrating because it can slow your progress of getting back into shape postpartum and getting a flat stomach.

Today I am going to give you some basic info about how to determine if you have diastatis recti and how to remedy it. To do so, I’ve created two quick videos for you:

First, here’s how to find out if you have Diastasis Recti and some basic info on what to do.

Next, a 5 minute workout video designed specifically for closing the gap!

Journey to Post Baby Best (Round 2) -Birth & 6 week update

Hi Ladies,

Hope you are all doing well and enjoying the fall. We have been settling into life as a family of 4, with all the craziness and fun that comes along with it.

Birth and first few weeks

Some of you have asked about Capri’s arrival and I wanted to share about it here briefly. As I mentioned in my Motherhood without Judgement post, we had a scheduled c-section to bring Capri into the world. It was the safer route for both of us and it certainly was nice to be able to plan for her arrival and know which day she would be here. [Read more…]

Fit Jeans Challenge

Hey Everyone,

Hope your week is going well. Thank you all so much support about the changes for Tailored Fitness. So many of you have shared encouragement for me in this next season and how Tailored Fitness has impacted you over the past few years. As promised, I don’t plan to disappear on you, so I wanted to pop in with an idea for staying active this fall.

It’s been so fun browsing social media and seeing all the First Day of School photos over the past couple weeks.  Although the weather here doesn’t feel like fall yet, the back to school vibe is in full swing.  Fall is kind of like a 2nd New Year’s and a perfect time to get back to the goals and priorities that are important to you.

If exercise is one of them, I wanted to remind you that last year’s Fit Jeans Challenge is still available for you on our YouTube Channel.  As a reminder, it’s a 28 day program of short workouts (less than 20 minutes) that are designed to help you feel great in your jeans this fall.

Here’s the schedule of workouts and nutrition challenges if you want to follow the program: [Read more…]

The Future of Tailored Fitness

It has been such an amazing journey over the past 3 years starting, growing, and running Tailored Fitness. Getting to know all of you through the course of this process has been an absolute joy.

As we prepare to welcome our 2nd baby in a little over a month, I have been doing some serious reflection and searching as I figure out what life as a work-at-home mom of 2 is going to be like.  If I have learned anything about motherhood so far, it’s to be flexible because things are constantly changing.  As I prepare for the change of welcoming another child, it’s time for a change for Tailored Fitness as well.


During this next season of life, I feel called into a season of simplicity and focus on my family.  As they always say, the days are long, but the years are short and I want to be able to be fully present and be able to look back at this season with no regrets. To free myself up to step into this new season, we will be shutting down the Tailored Fitness membership program. [Read more…]

Salad in a Jar

Hey Ladies! Happy Monday to you.  Lately, I have been trying to simplify things on the healthy eating front in preparation for the arrival of baby #2. One of the ideas I have been loving is the Salad in a Jar concept.

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw this picture of a yummy salad in a jar that my mom served on 4th of July.
