WE DID IT!!!!!! These ladies this transformation session were BAD mamma jammas! Killed. It. For everything I lacked this session due to personal travel and husband’s travel, they brought ten fold for me! I’m so proud of all their accomplishments, not only in pounds and inches, but in self growth and self love. THAT is what Fit4Mom is all about, my friends.

I’ve given you my big results. You KNOW this Body Back...

This week, you’re in for a real treat. I am Nick, Jeannie’s husband. Jeannie turned the keys to the blog over to me this week to provide a bit of a different perspective on Body Back.

So, before we get into it, a couple public service announcements:

PSA #1 - I’ve frequently told people that one of my biggest accomplishments was marrying up. Jeannie is better than me on most...

Show of hands of those mamas that eat half the bag of grapes while cleaning them? ‍‍Hi, we could be friends! (That has absolutely nothing to do with my post, but definitely happened tonight!)

I wanted to do a full “check in” near the middle of the session with updated measurements, weight, goals, etc., but since I was out of town for two weeks in the middle of the session, it sort of threw that plan out the...

Growing up I was “too cool for school” when it came to Halloween costumes. If I had to dress up, I’d always try to think of something where I could wear normal clothes and maybe throw on a mask or carry a prop to emulate the character I was “not trying” to be.

Now that I have children, I am the complete opposite. I love dressing up and I love doing family costumes! Starting last year, we have really gotten into it. But coming up...

Where my competitive mamas at?!?! **Raising my hand so high I may have torn my rotator cuff**

After I decided to stay home with my first borne, I often felt empty. I remember so many conversations with my husband trying to explain how I felt like I had nothing to work for anymore. Of course he would tell me that I was doing amazing work and I had so much to work for by raising our child, and I knew that was true,...

August 2019 - I am doing my 4th Body Back session (2-3 workouts per week), training for a half marathon (3 runs per week), and playing on a neighborhood tennis team (1 practice and 1 match per week).

We usually find ourselves a movie that we haven’t seen in a while, pop some popcorn, fluff up some pillows, and have a family movie midafternoon. Its nice to be able to cuddle up and not worry about if staying up late will affect the next day.

Sometimes it is a craft, like the time we made snowmen in a water bottle; sometimes it’s themed, like our beach/water party at Roswell (we played in the Volleyball Sand and had a water sprinkler going); and sometimes It’s sensory, like ice painting.

Here is how to set up for ice painting:
