  • The before doesn’t usually look like this.  Mister (bless his heart) has been cleaning the kitchen more and this is how he puts away the pans.  I didn’t say nothing because I’m not trying to discourage him 😩. I just cleaned it up.  He said it looks much better 😒. Looks like as long as he’s cleaning the kitchen I’ll just tidy up ever couple of days. We were supposed to get a custom system installed in this large corn cabinet but I never got around to it. This will do for now. PS, music stopped but you get the point 😆#quarantinecleaning #kitchenorganization
  • I miss outside 😩! If you know me in person you know I’m a extra-extrovert. Being out with the people shaking hands & kissing babies is what I do!  I kinda miss finding something cute to wear like this @suakokobetty kimono and shorts look. I think I’m turning into an social media introvert. Y’all know how i feel about introverts 😒😂. I don’t post as much as I used because I like the human energy. I sure we will get passed this! How are y’all coping socially? I’ll add a swipe up to my look in my stories.

  • For Mother’s Day Sunday my mom would have a new sharp suit laid out and she would have me run around Atlanta looking for a hat to match. I miss my mom so much. I find comfort in knowing that the very best parts of me are because of her. I feel her with me every day. 🌹
  • You guys have held me down this past year! Words of encouragement and supporting @supermomculture. I want to say thank you! I know I’ve been quiet but I’ve been working getting orders out.  Tonight we are going to celebrate US at 8pm on  @supermomculture Live! Grab your drink of choice and join me! #ipartiedatsupermothersday #clubsupermomculture
  • Meet my team... Peyton! Seriously, this little girl works so hard.  She works hard in everything that she does but I didn’t expect her to work hard for me.  She’s not half working either! She catches me making mistakes sometimes.  She even wants to take on more responsibility. She will work long hours with me (because she does get paid) and we chat and laugh while working.  I hope this continues because she is going to be a beast in business as an adult because she’s is getting firsthand experience at 9.  Proud mama! What’s that scripture about “train up a child” .... y’all know the rest 😂. Also, head to the site for white or black tees available now!
  • Taco Tuesday on Cinco de Mayo 🙌🏾 Yes Please! I told Peyton to look up what Cinco de Mayo was and she grabbed the sombreros I brought them from my MX trio earlier this year when traveling was a thing. Mamas got Margaritas on deck! 🍹 Who else is having a special taco Tuesday?

Fitness with a Family

October 12, 2018




This post is sponsored by Kohl’s. I was paid for this post and received the included Fitbit as compensation.

Once you have kids it’s a 100 time harder to stay fit. My schedule is packed with work, kids schedules, cooking and traveling, it can be hard to find time to work out. Somehow over the years, I’ve managed to find ways to consistently get a workout in. With the help of Fitbit from Kohl’s, I’m going to share how I manage to healthy active lifestyle while keeping up with my family.

I’ve been a Fitbit user since the little clip on came out about 7 years ago. When the Apple Watch came out I had to decide which I preferred, Fitbit Versa vs Apple Watch, and I’m glad that I stuck with the Fitbit. I’ve been a user ever since with some upgrades along the way. You may have noticed that I’m always wearing one in my pictures. I recently updated to the new Fitbit Versa Ruby exclusively from Kohl’s. The Fitbit Versa has already helped me to step up my fitness game with my family.

SCHEDULE WORKOUTS

Instead of just waking up and saying I’m going to try and workout today, I put it on my schedule like an appointment. I have an alarm set in my Fitbit Versa Ruby that goes off to remind me.

MAKE WORKOUTS COUNT

In the past when I worked out on my own, I didn’t work that hard. I would be doing good to do a full 15 minutes on the elliptical. After joining the Fitbit family, I realized I was making an impact. I was basically going through the motions but not really getting in a good workout. With my Fitbit Versa, I can see how many steps and active calories I’ve burned during a workout. Being able to see what I’m doing motivates me to push harder.

TRACK EVERYTHING

Studies have shown when you track your food intake you’re more than likely to lose weight if that is your goal. Through my Fitbit app, I can log my food and water throughout the day. Tracking my food helps me to make better choices. When I don’t track I know it’s because I’m eating something super delicious that I probably shouldn’t be eating. When you track it forces you to think about your choices.

MODERATION

To piggyback on my tracking that still needs some work, but let’s talk about moderation. It would be crazy for me to think I could give up French fries when I’ve been eating them my entire life. Instead of giving them up, I try to limit the portion size and how frequent I eat them.

GET THE FAMILY INVOLVED

On the Sundays after church, we like to head to the gym as a family. My husband will play basketball with the girls while I’m doing my class. It’s something that they look forward to and hard for me to say no to a workout. I know that we are setting an example for the girls to stay active. My oldest Peyton checks my Fitbit at the end of the day to see how many steps I got. I actually showed her how to change a band on your Fitbit versa since she was telling me that she didn’t like the strap that was on it. I think it’s great that you can change the straps since I get bored too!! She’s like “I see you, mommy”. She also wants her own Fitbit so she can see who gets the most steps.

I know I’m not the fittest person but I’m fit for ME. As much as I want to lose a few pounds, I’ve managed to not gain. I’ve ditched the crash diets for an overall healthy lifestyle. Eating in moderation, tracking my food, and working out has me feeling great no matter what the scales say. My Fitbit has played a significant role in making me more aware

In addition to the tracking benefits on my Fitbit Versa, it has more features that help me with my busy life. Fitbit Versa is a modern, smartwatch at an approachable price. It alerts me when I get a text or my phone is ringing so I don’t have to dig for it just to find out who it is. My calendar notifications come up on my Fitbit. You can upload your music to the Fitbit Versa and use Bluetooth headphones to listen at the gym or on the go. You can even track your menstrual cycle and you’ll get an alert before it’s coming! There are so many more features to the Fitbit Versa that I can’t list them all.

The Fitbit Versa new dashboard simplifies how you access your health and fitness data. The Fitbit Versa Ruby that I am wearing that is exclusively available at Kohl’s and is $199.99. You’ll also find the newly released Fitbit Charge 3 at Kohl’s. You can earn Kohl’s Cash with the purchase of a Fitbit. In addition to Kohl’s Cash, you’ll save on Fitbit Ionic $249.99 (Reg. $299.99) or Fitbit Ace $79.99 or Fitbit Alta (Reg. $99.99) during the month of October. Check out Kohl’s for details.
