The #RealMOMrealCEO Challenge on Instagram - Join me! - Fit2B.com

The pressure on female business owners like myself to do all the things is huge. We run companies and kids in carpools.

At The Park

I remember sinking gratefully down onto park benches on many exhausting days as a young mom. If someone had told me to go play on the equipment with my child, I would have squinted up at them with one eye shut and told them, “I’m fine. I worked out earlier today.  Now I’m tired. My […]

If You’re Raising a Girl, You Need This New eCourse!

If-Youre-Raising-a-Girl-You-Need-This-New-eCourse-Fit2B

My daughter was almost 11 when this course started to materialize in my mind.

Why can’t anyone teach about those things? Beth, […]

Feeling FROZEN in Your Tummy’s Progress? Let It Go! Let It Go-O!

Holding your tummy in all the time is NOT the solution for your big belly. In fact “holding stuff in” benefits FEW facets of our life. Yes, I know, sometimes we just don’t know how to let go of stuff, and by “stuff” I mean dreams, children, tummies, that one exercise we just can’t seem […]
