  • Came back from an amazing weekend in Durham, NC at the @theprevailingwoman conf back to Supermom mode. @letoyaluckett snatched all the edges when she said “If you are not kind to yourself, why would you expect someone else to treat us better than we treat ourselves?” My biggest takeaway is that I need to take care of myself so I can continue to be a supermom.  Gray tees and jean hats available now (bags are sold out)! Link in profile. #supermom #supermomculture
  • Sent my baby off to 4th grade this morning. She decided to wear a top she already had and she picked this hair style. She’s also excited to have a black woman teacher and principal. I was so hype that my little brown girl (only one in her grade) will get to see someone that looks like every day during her education journey. #firstdayofschool #blackgirlmagic #atlbraids #targetstyle
  • I’m having an amazing time @sheprevailsconference by @theprevailingwoman. If you watch my stories you will see them in action 💃🏾. I talked about the balancing act on a panel with @_kayalex_ & @themillennialmamma. The consensus is there is no balance.  I’ll get deeper in to that in a post later because I think we can all relate to that.  Thanks to @suakokobetty I was looking super fly in my kimono and matching shorts. My shoes are like 10 years old 😩. #sheprevails #prevailingwoman
  • The final days of summer! #AD We recently had a family fun day at @townctratcobb. Growing up, my mom and I would go to the mall every Saturday.  It was always an adventure.  Now, Town Center at Cobb is filled with family fun activities and of course, great shopping!  Beat the heat and enjoy a fun family day.

  • Did you know I had sisters?  Here are my two older sisters (far left and far right), my niece and my beautiful mom. I don’t think I talk about my sisters enough since people assume I don’t have any. I also have an older brother but he’s 😜. I’m the baby. We definitely don’t agree on a lot of things but when you mess with one of us, you’ll get the wrath from all of us. My #rideordies #nationalsisterday
  • So it’s #nationalsistersday or something like that. My girls are at the age where everything results in a fight, like wrestling match fights. But when one gets in trouble the other is sad.  Harper is already a ride or die sister. If Peyton gets in trouble, Harper takes it upon herself to tell us off and that we need to apologize. The funniest thing. Does anyone else have kids that fight all the time? #disneymom  #nationalsisterday
  • THANK YOU! You guys are awesome! All the kind words and cheers are appreciated. I was just talking about doing things when you’re scared.  I was low key scared to change my blog that’s why I put it of for years. I did it and I lived.  Don’t let fear stop you. Thank you guys for rocking with me over the years and hello to the new folks!

  • New blog, who dis? Y’all! I’m so happy to reintroduce myself...Hey Trina! I’ve been wanting to change my name for over 5 years. Baby Shopaholic has held me down for 8 years! Even though I have kids, I felt that the “baby” aspect was holding me back. Content will still be the same. Now I feel I can venture out and continue to focus on life hacks, style and conversations to help other moms and women to live their best mom life! Visit www.heytrina.com. I hope y’all continue to rock with me! #heytrina #rebranding

Getting to the Gym

June 27, 2017

This post is written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. All opinions are entirely my own. This shop has been compensated by Acorn Influence, Inc. and it’s advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

I’ve been doing my best to make it to the gym at least 3 days a week. I’ve been doing pretty well with sticking to my routine. Some weeks, I even work out 5 days a week. Don’t get it twisted, having two kids and getting to the gym is far from easy. It takes planning, practice and having the right products in place to get me there. I wanted to share with you how I make it to the gym at least 3 times a week with some serious planning and the new Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles.

First, I start by searching my gym group fitness schedule for classes that I’m interested in and add them to my calendar. I also set alarms on my phone to remind me of the class. Finding a class or workout that you enjoy is critical in motivating you to stay active.

A friend of mine suggested looking somewhere similar https://www.ryderwear.co.uk/collections/womens to find workout close for women so I could have something comfortable to wear. I lay out my workout clothes the night before. I may even sleep in my sports bra. I keep all my workout clothes in one place. I keep my tanks, leggings and sports bras all in the same drawer and it makes it easier to for me to get ready. I also do the same for the kids. I lay their clothes out the night before so we won’t have to dig through unfolded laundry to put an outfit together.

I usually workout in the morning, so having a protein packed breakfast is a must. Most days when I’m headed to workout, I’m racing against the clock and I don’t have time to make breakfast. The kids can be fine with cereal but that doesn’t work for me. Eating the new and convenient Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles ensure that I get a great breakfast. In less than two minutes I’m out the door with a delicious protein packed, low carb breakfast.

I keep my gym bag packed in the car. I keep the usual gym items plus diapers and wipes. I also keep a small makeup bag with concealer and lipgloss so I won’t scare anyone. I was talking to a friend recently and they suggested that maybe I mix it up a bit exercise wise. She was doing some tennis lessons and said she enjoyed the competitive side of it. I might give it a go because I’m not that great at tennis so lessons would get me up to speed. Since I’ve always got all my gym stuff with me, why not?

Out of all the things I do to help me to make it to the gym, breakfast is the most important. Skipping breakfast is not an option for me. Not only will I not survive a one-hour cardio class, you don’t want to meet hangry Trina. If I had to choose between going to the gym or eating breakfast, I choose breakfast. Having Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles on deck, I don’t have to choose. Jimmy Dean products make life as a busy mom on the go so much easier.

Of course, Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles aren’t just for heading to the gym. These are perfect to take to work or just when you’re at home. All you need is a few minutes and a microwave oven. The best part of all, there’s no cleanup! You can find Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles at Walmart in the refrigerated breakfast meat section.

What obstacles hinder you from working out? What do you do to overcome them?
