• Quarantine cuties! I bought these outfits before the lockdown because we were scheduled to be traveling this week. Since their hair was done we might as well 📸. But why are they so cool! Links to their outfits on the blog. #targetstyle #fashionkids
  • Those pedicures hit diff when you can’t go to the nails shop! It had gotten so bad that I didn’t want to touch my own feet. I grabbed my pumice, cuticle remover, soaked my feet and went to work! These were supposed to be my spring summer sandals. Got them from ASOS before ish got real! I’ll link them in my stories shortly.
  • Shout out to all the moms holding it down and homeschooling!  These kids may be trying to take us out but we got this!  @Supermomculture #dontrushchallenge featuring

  • No judgment zone! While scouring IG looking for hair inspo at time I’ve noticed “strangers” in the comments telling people how their kids hair should look.  I’m guilty of having my opinions in the past but I kept them to myself.  I remember when I said I would never put beads in my kids hair, add color, blow it out or add hair.  Look at us now.  I think all those “rules” held us back from embracing our hair. While I won’t do anything to damage their hair I do encourage them to try different styles.  Peyton knows her hair is magical and she can do so many things. She gets to the point where she asks me if she could wear it natural for a while vs the other way around. I offered to give her a long ponytail for her cheer competition and she said no she was fine.  Ok den! I know My mood is better when my hair is laid. Love our girls can express themselves with their hair. What’s a hair rule that you have broken for you or your children?

  • Harper got her bedroom “office” update. I styled the book shelves (she has a ton in her closet) and added a dry erase board.  She loves to practice her letter on it. Just after one day, her markers were confiscated 😒. Not sure what my next project will be.  I’m avoiding my closet but I seriously need to tackle that asap. You can find more pics of her room on the blog.  Link in profile. #heytrinashome #kidsdecor
  • My first time doing braid with hair ever! I did box braids on Peyton’s hair using @latchednhooked pre-stretched hair.  I’m so happy with how they came out I’m tempted to doing some on myself 😳. I used the rubber and method. Ore pics on the blog. Would you try these?  If you try this please share with me! #boxbraids #girlbraidstyles #latchednhooked #protectivestyles #diybraids https://heytrina.com/easy-box-braids-you-can-do-yourself-video/
  • My favorite part of Peyton’s bedroom refresh is her art from @sheisthisdesigns! I need to order more for Harper’s room and my new office space. I dreamed of having a room like Peyton’s when I was growing up (sometimes now 😆). She’s also has a closet to die for.  I always tell her if she can’t keep it clean, I’m putting my stuff in there.  We’ll be cleaning that out soon! Paint color is Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore.  More room pics on the blog. Link in profile. #heytrinashome
  • Picture of my girls actually fighting against doing any school work.  This homeschooling thing is a full time job! Mr has locked himself in my old office leaving me to fend for myself. I’ve decided to give the girls and myself grace (and 🍷). Not that I’m letting them win, after hours of going back and fourth I have to know when to call it a day.  One night I was up with Peyton till almost 10 helping her finish her work and I knew this can’t be life.  So we’re working about 2-3 hrs a day on school plus reading.  That’s all i got.  Just praying  she passes 4th grade 😩. How’s it going for you guys? #graceandmercy shirts fine @pintsizefaith
  • Another project under my quarantine belt! Peyton’s pre-tween bedroom refresh is done! It looks so good and matches the vibe of the rest of the house. Peyton wanted to kick the bright pinks to the curb. Now Harper wants her room update 😒. Her only update will be a good cleaning 😩. Spent less than $100. Swipe to see the before that was already cute.

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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
