I am just a mama with lots of health and fitness knowledge and experience.
Let’s get the elephant out of the room here first, concerning the recent political decisions and events. I know there is a lot of anger and frustration with many actions recently, but I’m not here to discuss that regarding Ivanka. I want to talk about what she’s taught me about being a work -at-home mother.
I saw her instagram post the other day, illustrating a major milestone in her life. It was her youngest son crawling for the first time. He’s a doll face. Then, I went to her Facebook page to see what kind of comments she might have regarding recent events with Nordstrom and other business relationships that are no more.
I expected to see something. A politically correct statement of some kind, but you know what I saw?
Videos and pictures of her children just like any other mom. See, Ivanka Trump may be handling some dips in her business life, but she’s still celebrating the loves of her life.
As work-at-home moms, it can be easy to really struggle emotionally when a client is upset, we lose a deal, or we fail at a project. We put every ounce of our energy and heart into our work to help provide for our little loves. I think Ivanka does too. Working at home brings our business failures and stresses so close to our children. But, we can take a que from those who are getting hit harder than we are (no matter if you think she deserves it, she’s still getting some pretty heavy hits). It appears she’s more concerned with her family, or that’s the message I get. I see a mom who’s enthralled with her children and husband, and no business BS is gonna shake that.
That’s how I want to be. I want to be the mom that doesn’t let political uncertainty shake my peace at home. I want to be the mom who let’s the business set backs and losses roll off my back like it’s another day of spilled milk. I get the message Ivanka has her priorities straight when it comes to her family, and I’m inspired by it. From mom to mom, I’m on the same page as her. Poltically, socially and economically we can be different. But,as moms I connect with her. I recognize her pride and joy, and I empathize with her.

So many mamas are having such success with the program, and let me share what they’ve said:
“I’m on the 14 day clean eating part and already feel a change. I love that your program caters to nursing moms. These recipes are boosting my milk supply! Thanks again and can’t wait to use the new app!”
“As far as counting calories, yes that was so helpful!… it was an eye opener…But your concept of reducing ever so slightly and monitoring milk supply was so helpful! I have lost 6lbs-yay!- and have 12 more to go! I am encouraged for sure because it is usually not until I’m done nursing that I’m able to lose weight. So I’m all in for hopefully the rest of my life-on clean eating like this and exercise! Thanks so much for your help!!”
“Feeling GREAT on this program!!! It’s unbelievable how eating clean makes such a difference. Let me rephrase that…it’s amazing the difference eating nutrient dense foods makes! My skin is glowing and I’m already shedding pounds! I also tried the first workout today and did well although I had to modify a bit and omit the backwards burpee (I had cesarean just over a month ago and don’t quite feel ready for that exercise just yet but I will get there). Loving this plan! Thank you SO MUCH for tour help!”
“The few changes I’ve made to diet per your instructions is already helping lower my sweet cravings. I’m sure I’ll notice an even bigger difference when I get stricter. This week has been great as I feel better, have already lost 2#, and haven’t seen a drop in milk supply which was my biggest concern. I look forward to starting the workouts tonight!”
“The baby steps have been super helpful including writing down everything I ate…Another 5 days would be amazing, I was thinking yesterday what am I going to do after the 5 days are finished. You have been incredibly helpful!! I am so appreciative!!!”
My program focuses on specialized nutrition for breastfeeding moms, recipes, meal plans, grocery lists, a new Ab Rehab + Pelvic Floor Restore program, and a new section on going back to work after baby coming soon!
The price is increasing once my certification as a Pre/Postnatal Exercise Specialist and the iOS app is out! Make sure to grab it now, while it is super affordable!
