 I am fortunate enough to have met our friend Kyle McElroy and my current trainer Tommy Bach at the same exact time in 1997. They were both teaching my very first kickboxing class together. Kyle went his separate way to a school called Z's Martial Arts. I feel like the story behind these two amazing instructors and their journey in the martial arts world is quite difficult to capture in one article. I talk quite a bit about Tommy in my articles because I am his student and train at his studio currently on a regular bases. In this particular article I will try to capture our dear friend for many many years, Kyle MceElroy and the talent he poses and his ability to pass it on to others.IMG 4204

We can always make up a million excuses to why we have no time to workout. Here is a little secret, you can pretty much workout anywhere. You don't have to make it to the gym or do your regular routine to get it done. You don't need a ton of time or fancy equipment and here's the best part! You can even have fun while you do it! What a concept!IMG 1509 2

IMG 4121Ever since these kids were in my belly they have always been apart of my life style. For us, it is not an option. Do we have time?  NO! Nobody ever has the time! But we make time, we make it part of our daily routines just as important as eating, sleeping and breathing. They do not know our lives without it.

I useIMG 2053 to be addicted to artificial sweeteners to avoid calories until I got pregnant and then I just quit cold turkey! I never went back. We LOVE popcorn movie nights at our house, popcorn at movie theaters make me cringe and so do most store bought ones.  Popcorn is actually a great whole grain with a decent amount of  fiber. It is high in antioxidants and several other nutrients. It is the abundance of salt, butter and oil we drown it in that makes the "healthy" part questionable. One cup of plain air popped pop corn only has around 31 calories. That number quickly changes when you add all the extra toppings to it.  I was introduced to the DASH Hot Air Popcorn Popper Maker by father in law and we have been obsessed ever since!!! I went ahead and purchased some organic popping kernels, a spray bottle with organic olive oil and some sea salt! I could control the amount of sodium and oil and watching it pop in our air popper never gets old! My love for popcorn returned! My kids all love to spray the olive oil and put their dash of salt in their bowls.

One day I decided to be daring and try a store bought microwavable kind for a quick healthier snack for all the kids playing outside and on the go. I noticed it had monk fruit in it, I was like what the hell is monk fruit?!  Well turns out it is in fact a non calorie sweetner, so I was like GREAT! Another artificial sweetener that causes terrible side effects... but monk fruit has no known side effects it is from an actual fruit called "Buddha fruit" from Southeast Asia. I could bore you and tell you how they make it but hopefully you will take my word for it. It is healthy, it is good kettle corn and your kids will love it it is called "BOOM CHICKA POP"!!!

It is not the critic who counts;  not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. IMG 7025

    Crafts are a major thing in my house, before COVID hit I would just browse Micheals Crafts. Not only do I love that store I love the smell of it haha. It is the ONLY store if I forget something,  I am more than happy to turn around and go back!

   Finding crafts to do with each of my kids as they get older and are different ages can be a bit challenging but when I do come across a winner that all 3 enjoy including myself,  it is a super bonus!!60531488283 5BFC5C8B 3DF5 4C5B 9DD3 310438ADCFA9

IMG 0722I started eating sunflower seeds a long time ago for one reason and one reason only,  when I was going through a hair loss phase at a very young age, I did some heavy research.

How else would you explain me being able to color my own hair in my bathroom all while taking care of my kids?! Something I DO NOT recommend haha!IMG 1662

I think all stylists/colorists are great multi-taskers, we kind of  have to be! We also all have our strengths and specialize in them.
