— LIVING WITH A LITTLE EXTRA

Abuse is real. It's scary and it happens to the people you least expect. My family was a victim of abuse. I was a victim of abuse. I stood in front of the ones I loved to protect them from the person who was supposed to love and protect us. I don't want to talk deeply about my dark past with abuse because I'm honestly just not ready yet. But I do want you to know if are in a situation where abuse is in your life please know that you do not deserve it! It doesn't matter if you've made mistakes ABUSE IS NEVER OKAY!!

I've been through every kind of abuse. I used to not want to tell people because I thought they'd see me as broken.. It took me along time to realize I was wrong and the people who thought I was broken were also wrong. People who have been abused tend to think they are what has happened to them.. This is not true! You aren't the people who have hurt you, you aren't the things they've said to you. 

i was also bullied. In high school I remember girls threatening to hit me with shovel.. Really funny to the rest of the school yet what they didn't know is I grew up with abuse so these funny comments that they thought were just a joke made me miss months of school because of the fear I had of ever being abused again. I almost dropped out of high school.. Thanks to love and support I had at home and my boyfriend now husband I didn't. These girls who bullied me could have ruined my whole future. They had no idea what I've been through in my life and If they knew I could have only hoped that they would have thought twice about the way they treated others. You NEVER know the pain and suffering that someone is going through or has gone through, so try to be a nice human. Everyday I try to be better then the people who hurt me. I've realized the best revenge is being unlike your enemies. 

Abuse left me feeling weak in some ways. At Wasatch I feel strong! Mentally and Physically. I feel like I can protect my family. I feel like I can protect the people I love instead of just taking a hit to protect them like my past. I FINALLY feel strong thanks to WASATCH COMBAT SPORTS!

At Wasatch each time I hit the bag I feel a piece of my past being released, the anger and hate I've been holding in is finally set free. I walk out of the gym standing taller and feeling stronger. I know I do not need to feel hate or sadness for the things I've gone through because I've chosen forgiveness. I now have an outlet a healthy and positive outlet. At Wasatch you are surrounded with good people! People with good hearts that truly care about you. I truly NEEDED this missing piece in my life. I've trusted people that I've realized didn't have my best interest at heart. I'm glad I've found a second family here at Wasatch.

WORKING OUT WITH YOUR LITTLE BAE

SPONSORED BY

Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy.

DON'T UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF STRETCHING

I start every work out with a good stretch! With being a Mom I have no time to hurt myself and this why a good stretch is important! Almost any stretch can be done with a carrier. Click below to see my stretching regime. 

RUNNING

After I stretch I like to do at least 15 minutes of cardio. I found the easiest cardio to do with your baby is running, stairs, or anything that is stationary this can be a bike or the eliptical for example.

LEG DAY

When doing leg day with the baby in the carrier I keep it simple! Yet don't get fooled just because it's simple doesn't mean it's easy!

For these workouts I do use the head support for my baby's! I will also sometimes even add extra support by using my hands or the cover. I provided tutorials for all these workouts below. All you have to do is click the button with the workout title.

 Ending with a good stretch

It's Just as important to end with a good stretch as it is to start with one!

2. Spread the mixture into the bottom of a 9x13" pan that has been covered in aluminum foil.

3. Sprinkle the strawberries and the granola over the top of the yogurt, slightly pressing it into the yogurt with your hands.

4. Freeze for about 1 hour, or until completely frozen.

5. Remove from freezer, and cut into about 12 slices (I used a pizza cutter). Serve immediately, or keep in freezer in a freezer-safe bag or container for up to 30 days.
