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…

Friday Favourites #1: Fashion, Clean Eating, Holiday Treats & Side of Inspiration

I started my day super early this morning - not because I was working out at 5:00 a.m. getting my fitness on. Nope. Not this mom. I was up at 4:30 a.m. trying to convince my 6 year old that it was night time, not morning, and had to get his effing ass back into bed and go to sleep. It didn't work. The kid is persistent, and he's allergic to sleep. I did manage to finally break free and get my 30 minute bad-ass workout in around 6:30 a.m., and that wasn't too bad because lucky me, I have the day off from work today - so I didn't have to worry about rushing through the morning and getting to work on time. Win!

So it's 9:30 a.m. on a super cold but beautifully sunny Friday morning. I'm 3 coffees and a protein shake deep into the day already, listing to the audio version of  You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life: In Less Than 30 Minutes by Jen Sincero.  I keep hearing how important personal development is soooo I'…
