10 Fitness Inspired Instagram Accounts I'm Obsessed With


I find that most days I need a really good kick in the pants to stay motivated. I need a daily reminder what my goals are. And I have to admit, I do this by lurking fitness accounts on Instagram. From other fit mom wannabes like myself, to mom's who have reached their goals, to celebrity trainers and famous YouTube personal trainers, it's clear I have a major obsession lol.

OK ready? Here are 10 fitness inspired Instagram accounts I'm currently obsessed with:

Sarahfit: Sarah Dussault is a fitness YouTube sensation and full time fitness and health blogger. She posts pictures mostly of the behind the scenes look into her life, but she also shares pictures of her latest eats, fitness fashion picks, progress pictures and fitness tips.

Skinnymeg31: Skinny Meg worked hard at losing 100 pounds before getting preggo with her second child. She gave birth in March and is now working on round two of losing her baby weight. Her posts are half fitness, half adorable family pictures - a perfect combo if you ask me (but then again, I'm pretty biased. Have you seen my Instagram account??).

IGfitmoms: Motivation and transformations of the fit moms of Instagram. 'Nough said. 

SkinnyMom: Some great inspirational quotes, fitness and health tips, and just an overall awesome community to join.

Fitmamato3: Another amazing inspirational mom of three who's lost 90 pounds and is sharing her journey.

TaniatheMachine: Have you done Insanity? Have you heard of FocusT25? She's the chick to the right of the screen (the modifier) with the crazy abs. Oh, and she's also a mom who's in crazy amazing shape.

CanMamaGetFit: Whenever I feel like I'm too tired to even consider working out after the kids are in bed, I check out this girls busy life and think if she can do it, so can I. And then I get my ass off the couch and move. I love her motivational quotes. 

MamaLaughlin: Another awesome mommy fitness blogger and 60+ weight loss inspiration. I love when she posts progress pictures - and she isn't afraid to show the good, the bad, and even the ugly (IF you think stretch marks are ugly, which I don't).

autiebl (Baby2Bombshell): A busy mom turned personal trainer and fitness ambassador who's lost 100 pounds. Oh ya, she's also a boutique owner!

30DayFitnessChallenges: 30 day challenges, inspiration, food porn. Love it - wish it was updated more frequently.

Life Lately: Back to Basics

It's been awhile since I felt inspired to write anything either on the blog, in my journal, and hell, even in Birthday/greeting cards these days. I blame stress from various sources but also a bit of laziness too.
It feels good to flex the writing muscle again, so here's what's been happening in my life lately. 
We celebrated my sister-in-laws baby shower recently and it was such a fun day! Check out her decor, she and her friends did an amazing job - the dessert and candy table was a hit!

Aaaand someone was tired from all the festivities....a cat nap was obviously needed!

Then there was that time we had a family games night. I was so tired but my hubby got major points for setting up the board games, getting a surprise dessert for the kids (DIY sundaes), and wine for me!

I enjoyed some much needed me time with my couch, comfy blanket, and a warm coffee.

I'm on a new and improved healthy eating kick and panicked a little when the family wanted to go to Boston Pizza one day f…

Life Lately: New Milestones and Weigh In Wednesday

Forget about being a yo-yo dieter, I'm also clearly a yo-yo blogger! One minute I'm too busy to worry about blog posts, then I'm pinning tons of blog post and journaling ideas, then I'm quitting social media all together. I'm not sure what's happening in my old age, but ever since having kids, I kind of can't stick to a plan. I used to be so organized and stayed true to my convictions or life plans. Now I fly by the seat of my pants and I start and quit things all the time. Not sure what this really says about me, but what I do know is absence makes the heart grow fonder and I really miss blogging about what’s new in my neck of the woods. The good, the bad, the ugly, I’m no stranger to over sharing and quite frankly, it’s therapeutic.
So what’s been going on with me over the last couple of months? Well, I became an aunt again (my brother and his girlfriend had a baby), we celebrated countless birthdays, anniversaries, tooth fairy visits, and jobs well done a…

#MotivationMonday: Starting a 21-Day Fitness Challenge

I love starting new projects at the beginning of the month. And while I'm about two weeks late to my own challenge, I finally decided on my monthly challenge.

A few months ago I purchased the 21 Day Fix Extreme and while I've started the program a few times, I've never gotten past the first week - or past day 3 on the eating version of the plan. So this month (or what's left of it) I'm committing to 21 Day Fix Extreme...workouts and meal plan (fat burn plan, where you eat every 2 hours for a total of 6 mini meals).
Eeeeeek I'm nervous. Whille I can committ to relationships and a favourite pair of jeans (hello dark wash flares circa 2005) I find it so hard to stick to fitness and nutrition plans. Even remembering to take my Metamucil twice a day at the demand of my doctor is a struggle!
So anyway, I went grocery shopping this afternoon and this evening I cooked, steamed, chopped, baked and roasted most of my proteins and veggies and carbs to last me the week. I…
