LOVING LUNGES

LOVING LUNGES Despite having a sizeable home gym to train in, at 4 plus month ‪#‎PostPartum‬, I still have limited time to get consistent exercise into my schedule because my Baby Boy is the boss and he’s currently undergoing sleep training patterns…which is currently hit and miss so this Mommy is tired (I’m in the process of looking for a Nanny but that’s another story). With time being of the utmost importance, I’ve had to get creative with my workouts and one of my favourite and most effective exercises for the glutes, quads, and hamstrings is the Lunge. Or in this case, my cleverly crafted ‪#‎LovingLunges‬. Lunges and lunge variations are key accessory movements in my Lower Body exercise regimen. They’re also functional, challenging, metabolically demanding, and wonderful for detailing the legs! By taking advantage of carrying by son while doing my lunges, I’ve also added some resistance! Directions: a. Mommy holds baby in front and cuddled into tummy b. Stand in neutral position with back straight looking straight ahead c. Take a big step …

STRONG LIKE MOMMY Success Story

I just love this picture. Love, love, love it. I don’t even need to provide much detail because the images truly describe my client Manja H’s transformation who came to me soon after the birth of her 2nd child and WOWZERS does she ever give new meaning to the title #StrongMommy By eating more food and simply kicking butt in the gym, she is down 27 lbs along with shredding 8 inches around her waist, 5 inches around her hips, and 4 inches around her thighs with more strength, energy, and a hot new body for the summer. Manja says, “Working with Coach Jenny has been life changing! After giving birth to my second daughter within two years, I was left feeling weak. My babies were both large at birth and I was left with very serious core instability and diastasis recti. I knew immediately that I needed help getting back into shape because I could not live with the discomfort and debilitating lack of strength. I wanted to experience dramatic results so I chose …

6 Weeks into Motherhood

I am now 6 weeks postpartum and WOW! Motherhood has been quite the experience thus far. I heard a lot of different things from so many different people prior to my delivery (i.e. what to expect, what was horrible, what was delightful, etc.) but I took everything with a grain of salt because as much as I love hearing other Mommy Stories I hated hearing how hard it was going to be and how there will be no time for anything, etc, etc, etc. To be honest those comments just fuelled my fire to actually try to do more! I’m not saying that motherhood is easy because it’s not (far from it) but with a few adjustments, sacrifices (one being the state of my house lol) and lots and lots of planning I find that I am able to do even more than I expected. I’ve adjusted to the shortage of sleep, erratic eating times, and when I’m breastfeeding I’m actually planning, planning, planning.  When baby sleeps, I take that opportunity to exercise (I’m blessed …

TEAM STRONG GIRLS Biweekly Progress – Carey H.

Weight Training 4x/week with 3 short HIIT sessions/week, plenty of food flexibility (and carbs), and enjoying the Christmas Holidays with family and loved ones resulting in 46 lbs (!!!) lost to date. Wowzers. Even better, this STRONG MOMMY from Australia has shredded an insane 14 inches around her belly button and 9 inches off of her hips…and she’s still going strong with a healthy, flexible, and sensible (and SANE) approach to Dieting. So proud of you Carey! I can’t wait to show off more of her progress! #MondayMorningMotivation

STRONG LIKE MOMMY Biweekly Feedback – Sony G.

As I wrap up my STRONG LIKE MOMMY e-book (which I cannot wait to share), I’m reviewing all of my testimonials from my Prenatal and Postnatal clients and am overjoyed to share them with everyone as a collection. Sony G. came to me at 21 weeks pregnant looking for a program that would provide her baby healthy and optimal food choices along with gaining healthy and normal Prenatal weight. During her pregnancy, Sony sent me this message: “It’s crazy to think the week I started with you I weighed 145lbs and 10 weeks later, I weigh only 147.2lbs and I feel great! I know you told me it’s not about pounds and weight but I can’t help but feel in total control of my body, food, and fitness levels. I know you love Pants Stories but, being pregnant, I have to share a winter coat story with you. LOL! I didn’t want to buy a maternity winter coat or a bigger winter coat to wear for only a few months of winter. When I started …

STRONG LIKE MOMMY Success Story

Another STRONG MOMMY transformation is in the books and I’m so ecstatic I was able to capture these gorgeous images of Tara D. and Baby Sloane. Tara came to me soon after Baby Sloane was born and was determined to get into the best shape of her life. Already active with her consistent workouts, we just took a more precise approach in terms of shaping her body by moving away from long bouts of high impact cardio and conditioning and moving into heavier weight training for the purpose of shaping her physique. With her nutrition program, we increased her protein and carb intake along with (more importantly) not looking at food as “good” or “bad” so I had her enjoy her FREE MEALS rather than feel guilty about it. This STRONG GIRL shed 23 lbs along with 9 inches around her waist, 5 inches off of her hips, and 6 inches off of her thighs! I love all of the incredible shape she has developed because everything about her is tiny, tight, fit, and strong! …
