Grace Over Guilt…print now on sale!

Those of you who have been a part of this community for a while, whether it be through my online programs or regular reading, know that I continually encourage letting go of guilt when it comes to health and fitness. Obsessing over calories and missed workouts is no way to live. “Grace over guilt” has...
Thank you...

Thank you…

Hi Beauties… I hope you had a great Thanksgiving holiday. I’m taking the day off today to spend time with my family and dive into all things CHRISTMAS! I am so ready. :) But I wanted to pop in to let you know how thankful I am for you. This community is something special and I...

Confessions Of A Pilates Instructor

Hi Beauties! I hope you had a nice weekend. I spent both days in the studio filming new workouts for the upcoming holiday Pilates program.

Pre-Holiday Pilates…Save The Date!

SAVE THE DATE! 11.17.14 The holiday season is just around the corner and for many of us that means a few extra cocktails, a few more lazy nights and a few too many chocolate covered treats. To help you avoid the winter blues, the cold weather hibernation and that unwelcome “winter coat”, I’m super excited...
Become A Balanced Life VIP

Become A Balanced Life VIP

I’m excited to announce that after much deliberation, consideration and strategizing I’ve decided to launch a VIP Coaching Program here on The Balanced Life. Over the past few years many of you have requested more opportunities to work with me one-on-one but the timing never felt quite right. And when the timing doesn’t feel right,...
Instagram And The Comparison Trap

Instagram And The Comparison Trap

Hi Beauties, I’ve had this post drafted for months but have waited to post it because I really want the message to come across in the right way. I’m going a little off topic today to share some thoughts on social media… I’ve written posts in the past about the comparison trap on social media (like this...
Taking some "me" time...

Taking some “me” time…

Hi Beauties! I was stressing over getting a post up for you this morning, but to be honest, I just need a break today.  As you know, being a work-at-home mom can be tough. Naptime is typically filled with as much work as I can pack in but today, I need a break so I’m honoring...
TBL Run Club!

TBL Run Club!

Friends, I have a confession to make. I can hardly remember the last time I went for a run. Seriously. I think it was a few weeks ago, but before that there was a dry spell too. I just haven’t been in the mood but the crisp Fall air is starting to call my name....
Sick Day

Sick Day

Hi Beauties, Sorry, no new post today. I’m home with a sick baby! Since I’m a one-woman show this means putting the to-do list on hold, snuggling my little one and *attempting* to rest myself. Haha. I thought this photo was fitting. I’m utilizing all my tried and true natural remedies…salt water gargle, raw garlic, green...

11 Tips For Work-At-Home Moms

Over the past few weeks you’ve probably heard me mention that I’ve been going through a “balance overhaul” in regards to my schedule. In July I reached a point of overwhelm and I knew something needed to change. For those of you who don’t already know, The Balanced Life is my full-time job. I work from...

Link Love: what I’ve been reading…

Happy Friday beauties! I hope you’ve had a good week. It has been super busy around here with the kickoff of The PBP. As busy as it is I love getting to know the new group of motivated women and walking through their goals with them. I can’t help but feel inspired and blessed by...
Pantry Organization Project

Pantry Organization Project

Awhile back I shared a photo on Instagram showing the disastrous state of my pantry. In general, I’m a pretty organized person. But certain areas of the home have been severely neglected since becoming a mother. There’s only so much time in the day. Week by week, day by day, the overflowing pantry was starting...
