So earlier today I shared some pictures from a procedure I had done at Trilogy Med Spa in Midvale - one of the BEST decisions I've made. It’s something I’ve known I wanted to do for a long time but haven’t had the nerve. Until this week. At the recommendation and encouragement of some friends. And of course me. I couldn't be happier with the results so far, lov...

Too much kindness never hurt anyone. As women we have so many opportunities to reach out and lift another up. There are already too many who don't and feel they are better than the rest of us. Don't be that person.

The results are in, and mom's stable. Given 3-9 months it's been a year and a half, and her clinical trial is working.

Growing up my mom used to tell me to surround myself by those who inspire me. Those who build me up. Those who believe in me. Those who make me want to be a better person.

She told me to surround myself by good people. 

I think about that often as I evaluate my day to day life and interactions with those around me. That goes for my close friends, high school frie...

There’s not a day goes by that I’m not asked about how to become an ambassador or athlete for She Lifts Gear. Some days I’ll maybe get one inquiry, but then there are others when I’ll get several. I wanted to take a moment and update everyone where I’m at with regard to starting an ambassador and athlete program as well as shed some light on my personal feeling...

This post comes from genuine concern. I have worked with a few different trainers over the last 9 years, but the last 3 years I have been totally 100% committed to Shane Heugly. He is my coach. Why? He knows his stuff. He's experienced. He has a portfolio of success stories to be commended for, and he's so passionate about this sport. And Shane is just one of m...

"Fitness has become more than just a lifestyle to me. When I think about my WHY and how this journey of healthy living has blessed me, I am routinely humbled. I am a firm believer in "everything happens for a reason and that things occur in His time".  My mom has taught me from a young age to be strong, a friend, a giver, and help others.  It's some of her best...

I'm so excited to share our first submission. I woke up to this beautiful story shared by Melinda. Please keep in mind as I receive these wonderful stories from all of you, I will share them as they come in. I don't want to change a thing. They are verbatim.

Submission Request! Read below for the details - but note the deadline is Mother's Day! 

I initially got this idea from my dear friend, Teresa. She is one of the strong ones. This past year she had a nasty breast cancer scare which after 2 surgeries (goodbye left and goodbye right - but has since had reconstructive surgery) is fortunately NOW cancer free, but it...

Yesterday I posted a side-by-side comparison shot on my @momma_gal account on Instagram. It was one I'd shared before - the left picture being of me when Greg and I tried to do Body for Life back in 2000, and the right one being of me sometime last year. 

I remember Body for Life. It was the first diet I tried that I actually saw reasonable success and felt I co...
