About Me

lisa-roundedHello! I am Lisa.

I am a wife. I am a mom. I am an entrepreneur. And I’m here to help you.

I work with moms like you who are struggling to get your physical and emotional core back after having children.

WHEN YOU ARE SOLID AT YOUR CORE PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY, YOU ARE A BETTER MOM.

As someone who’s been there firsthand, I get that you feel…

  • I feel like I not important anymore.
  • I have no time for myself.
  • It’s not right that I want time for myself.
  • I can’t spend money or time on myself.
  • I don’t deserve and don’t have the time to get healthy and fit.

YOU MAY PUT EVERYONE ELSE FIRST, BUT IT HAS TO START WITH YOU. YOUR SOUL WILL THANK YOU. (AND YOUR FAMILY WILL TOO.)

Speaking of my family, I have two AWESOME (and beautiful!) little girls named Evie and Anna, a fabulous husband named Mark, and a dog named Jack.

There’s up days and then there’s tough days. My mantra has become, “I have preferences – not expectations.” Which is a hard thing to stomach for the Type A person that I am.

Let me tell you about a few of the TOUGH months five years ago, when I realized this concept of what I now refer to as, “being shaken at my core.”

lisa-rounded-3After I had my second child (emergency C-section) and sold my house (both of those things actually happened within ten days of each other), I ended up moving when she was just 6 weeks old. My husband was traveling like crazy and it was one of the coldest, snowiest winters I can ever remember.

I remember one day we were trying to get out and run errands, which, with a 2 year old and a 2 month old, is REMARKABLY HUGE progress. However, it had snowed a lot, to say the least. I could not leave my driveway unless I removed the snow. I had to get out the snowblower and I knew no one to help me. I’d just moved! The very *thought* of snowblowing my driveway with a newborn and a two year old debilitated me. Where was I supposed to put them!? They couldn’t ride with me. I was by myself. It overwhelmed me to tears.

Now I’m a very take-charge, get-things-done kind of person. To not be “able” do something was not in my nature. I just didn’t know what to do. I was physically and emotionally exhausted from the birth PLUS the moving/packing. I felt alone. I felt defeated. I just couldn’t do this.

It was in this moment that I realized, I felt like I had lost my emotional core.

  • My ability to rise above or rise up and just “do it.”
  • My ability to figure things out.
  • My ability to get started.
  • My ability to push forward.

As I sat there on the floor feeling tired, broken, and somewhat helpless, somewhere inside me I heard a little bitty voice. A voice that used to drive me, push me, tell me that I could do anything, a voice that used to be MUCH louder. She sounded so quiet right now, but she was still there, somewhere down in my core.

She said, “You got this.”

I believed her. I knew life looked different now than it had, but I was still me and I still had my core. It had just been shaken a bit and had gotten a bit soft.

IS THIS YOU? HAVE YOU BEEN HERE?
DO YOU HAVE A SIMILAR STORY?

I could share several other stories with you since that moment 5 years ago where I felt most on my knees, most shaken at my core…

  • I have had many challenging momma moments where I wondered if I was really meant to be a mom to two (let alone a mom to begin with),
  • Many fights with my husband where I wondered if we were really meant to be married at all,
  • Set backs in my work life that have made me question where I am headed,
  • Health issues that scared me to death,
  • And, challenges and disagreements with family members that made me question who I was.

When challenging moment after challenging moment keeps coming at you, it has the power to shake you, even YOU, the “Take-Charge, Get-Things-Done Girl” you’ve always been, TO YOUR CORE.

That moment in time, 5 years ago, when I was on the floor in my kitchen, I realized how lost I was feeling. Not only was I on rocky emotional ground, but my mental and physical cores weren’t improving very quickly after the second baby (and the big 4-0 was on the horizon). I had always loved working out and eating healthy, but for some reason, I couldn’t get the love to exercise back. I was tired, lethargic, and bored. I knew I need to do something.

On a Sunday afternoon, I was walking/running on our treadmill, somewhat bored with my choice of exercise that day; I was watching TV and barely breaking a sweat. An infomercial for a home workout DVD called Turbo Fire came on, made by a company called Beachbody. I was very familiar with Beachbody, as I had been a huge fan and customer of theirs for about 10 years. So, I ordered the program and got connected to my Beachbody coach. She helped motivate me to start to exercise again, but I didn’t stick with it. I was still struggling. I just didn’t have energy to do it.

It was 3 months later, via that same coach that I discovered Shakeology – an amazing dense nutrient-rich product. Through her coaching around better eating habits, exercise, consistency, and better habits in general, I learned how to get my energy back, curb my cravings, eat better, sleep better and lose my belly fat.

Through these changes, I lost over 20 pounds, but the bigger piece was what this did and has done for me emotionally. It re-established my core so I could get back on the path to who I really was. I know that might sound strange to you, but its true. Good stuff in = good energy out. I truly believe FOOD is thy medicine. 

Good nutrition and wellness is a big part of my life now, but what I learned through this process is my bigger WHY. My why for wanting to help you do this too-not just for you physically, but mentally too! You are STRONGER than you realize!

I THINK IN THE MIDST OF A LIFE CHANGE, YOU CAN LOSE THE SENSE OF WHO YOU ARE. IT’S IMPORTANT TO HAVE THE COURAGE TO GET HELP IN RE-ESTABLISHING YOUR NEW IDENTITY AS A MOM, WIFE, FRIEND, & FAMILY MEMBER.

It is through my journey of being a mom, losing my core emotionally and physically, and then finding it again, that guides me in wanting to help you. I have learned some things along the way and they could help you too. One mom to another. Just me and YOU.

I want to help you become SOLID AT YOUR CORE. Let’s connect soon…you deserve it.
