Guest Blogging at it’s finest!!!

I’ve been very fortunate the last half of 2014! I’ve been published in the 3-17-14 issue of Woman’s Day magazine for my weight loss story.

May I was featured as the Fit Mom Diet “Momspiration” sharing my weight loss story, what it’s like to have celiac disease, personal favorites, motivation and inspiration I others!!
In June I was featured as the very first guest blogger for Click Espresso Protein drink. I shared my weight loss story, favorites, inspiration and love of Click!!
Just recently, I was just featured as a guest blogger “weight loss success story” on the Bulu Box blog. I wrote about commitment to yourself, ways to stay motivated, being on a restricted diet due to celiac and eTing gluten free.

After being so fortunate to share my story in hopes that others struggling with the same issues (celiac, weight loss, finding gluten free snack choices, feeling good about yourself and the motivation to continue your journey) will find inspiration in my words knowing I have been there, done that and rose to the top. “I aspire to inspire” and will bend over backwards to help anyone who asks for help.

At this point I’m teaching 7 plus classes (Boot Camp and HIIT) a week and finalizing my Certified Personal Trainer certification. I’ve done one on one training and or classes to help individuals who are uncomfortable being in a group “class” at the beginning of their journey, in order to streamline them slowly into a class setting.
On top of that I’ve started my own photography business (which I’ve always wanted and have been trained/certified for awhile now.) I just never had the free time with the kids being small and put it off. Now, I’m doing both fitness and photography and couldn’t be happier. 😃
One more benefit, I hope, I’ve got in the works is going back to school in the fall full time for fitness/health and a side of photography fun!! I’m so excited!!!!!
Stay tuned for updated guest blog posts and lots of fun in fitness!!!
I’ve started a whole new blog for my photography business so look for that up and running 100% soon!!!








May is Celiac Awareness month! A few gluten free product reviews…


Recently I had the chance to try Nugo Stronger protein bars. These bars are certified gluten free and range from 25 to 27 grams of protein sourced from whey and rice. There are no artificial sweeteners, no maltitol and they are non-GMO. This equals 55% less sugar than a regular high protein bar! The average calories for each bar is 290.

Seriously, I had just blasted some serious fat and calories with a killer train Dirty Fitness 60 minute Bootcamp session and was in need of so e serious nourishment so I grabbed the cookies and cream Nugo bar! Having celiac my options for most things are limited but I have to tell you, that bar tasted just like I remember an Oreo! It was so good and filled me up quickly so I felt more level with my blood sugars.

The peanut cluster flavor was remarkable and reminded me of a snickers candy bar. So much that I almost felt guilty eating it. I would highly suggest the next time you want a protein packed gluten free endulgence to pick yourself up a few boxes of these bars to have on hand! I’m out and just writing about them has made me really want one. My overall rating of these bars is a 10 out of 10! Finding anything healthy that’s gluten free and packed with good protein is hard to find. Add finding one that actually tastes great and it’s close to impossible….until now!!
