Chic Review: Fit Mama in 30

Being a mom of three now (how is that even possible?) I’ve really struggled over the past few years to find the time, patience and know-how to take care of ME.

Some mom friends of mine told me about Fit Mama in 30 — said it was life-changing and that I had to check it out. And now I’m one of those people telling my friends and you the same thing!

The thing I love most about Fit Mama in 30 is that the two women behind it really know their stuff. Cari is a Certified Personal Trainer and Nutritionist; Bailey is a registered dietitian and personal trainer. They’re both moms who understand how difficult it is to fit in diet and exercise – and just basic self-care – when you have little ones, so they created a membership-based community and fool-proof guide that makes it VERY easy to fit a mom’s wellness into a her busy life.

Over the past few years, I’ve tried almost every kind of diet, spent hours meal-planning every week, plus hours on the treadmill, counting calories and macros, and I was always disappointed in the results and it got kind of defeating. Fit Mama in 30 is truly different — it makes it easy to get in the best meals and workouts with your limited time, and it takes out all the guesswork wondering if you’re doing the right things. They give you a really easy to follow guide, show you how to track your success and that just fuels you to stick with it because you see results!

Like for example, they have these dietitian designed meals you can make in under 30 minutes and they give you these organized grocery lists so you can quickly shop for what you need. It even gives you a guide to split up your plate to eyeball portioning so you don’t waste so much time weighing and counting every last calorie or macro.

I love the recipes too – they change weekly and they’re family friendly so no one ever gets get bored!

Then their 30 minute daily workouts you do whenever it works for you that day, in your own space with just some basic equipment like hand weights. I love that their kids appear in some of the videos – it’s very real life and encourages me to get my kids involved in my workouts too!

That community aspect is huge, too. When you become a member, you get access to the private FB group filled with Mamas just like you! Plus, you have nutritionist and trainer access at any time!

After the first month, not only am I seeing a difference in inches lost, but I feel like I have more energy, balance, and happiness than ever. It really gave me the guide I needed to quickly carve out a little time each day to fill my cup, and get the energy I need to live my best mom life!

HIGHLY recommended. So if this is something you’ve struggled with too, definitely check it out. Learn more about it at www.fitmamain30.com.

Review: The At Home Chef

The At Home Chef recently did a dinner party I helped host for a friend’s engagement celebration. I love planning events and hosting parties, but I always end up exhausted afterwards from all the work it takes to put them on, and never feel like I spend enough time enjoying my friends/family because I’m busy cooking, serving and cleaning up the whole time!

With The At Home Chef, all I had to do was give a few ideas I had and he ran with it, came up with a menu, researched all the wine pairings, then did all the shopping, prepping, cooking and cleaning at the party…it was the easiest, most enjoyable, and memorable dinner party because I was able to actually spend time and celebrate with everyone! I’ll never host a dinner party without Chef Ken now!

Dinner Parties with Chef Ken!

Just crawling out of the food coma I’ve been in since Saturday night’s dinner party to celebrate my friend’s engagement! 🇬🇷💍😍 Not only was Chef Ken with The At Home Chef a magician in the kitchen as he customized our four course, locally-sourced meal, but it was so fun watching and learning from him as he made everything… aaaand they did the dishes and left the kitchen spotless! Highly recommended if you want to host a dinner party (or a fun date night!) but don’t want to do all the work that actually entails! 😂
