Everyone keeps saying “live your best life!” I like that and all but what exactly does it mean? Have you ever reverse engineered your goals before? I like to start at the GOAL ACHIEVED and then work backwards. Before I start talking college with my kids I ask them “yes but what kind of life are you wanting? Is it a cottage in the woods with zero travel and low overhead or you aiming for a house on the ocean in Malibu?” Make sure you are on the right path by STARTING at the goal FIRST. So tell me your dream body and life AND THEN we build the path. Otherwise we would be working completely in the wrong direction. Thank you to @niksoftime who taught me this. Sometimes it’s harder than you realize to pinpoint exactly what you want outta life! #goals #serioustalksinabikini #fitmoms #bikinifitness #mauibodynow #mbn #hotsexytropical #maui #hawaiifitness #instagood

Raise your hand if you are juggling too many 🥥! I’ve been accused of having ADHD forever. It just dawned on me like the other day that maybe this whole life I never had ANYTHING. Maybe I’m normal and maybe society expects way too f*cking much of me as a woman, a mother, etc. Boom. I said it. Maybe its time I do things for myself without saying “sorry” or making excuses. I was so insecure and felt so terrible about myself in my 20’s. I didn’t fit into the “boxes.” What a horrible feeling. Nothing is wrong with me and stop labeling people for not fitting into some ridiculous box of “normal.” Normal to whom!? I’m at the gym everyday and not because I’m a “selfish” mom but because I don’t think we need a reason to take care of ourselves. We. Are. Enough. So my lady friends: I beg and I plead with you to love yourself for who you are and throw out every single expectation “society” has of you. It’s made up. Be you. And be the best version of you possible. You don’t have to be team mom and classroom volunteer and festival committee president and fix five course meals every night that look like Pinterest. (Can you believe on top of looking good and always being nice we are supposed to make food look perfect now too!?!? Hahahaha fml.) ok that is all.

Last week I shared with you how I stopped workout boredom in its tracks three easy ways. Here they are!
🌴 Change your music, change your tune. I feel so inspired and motivated when I listen to a new playlist when I workout. 🌴Try a new workout spot! If you normally go to the gym, grab a yoga mat and some dumbbells and go outside!
🌴Train the same, stay the same! Try a new class, new moves or go for a jog! Change it up and see major results!
Let’s get hot, sexy and tropical! #hotsexytropical #mauibodynow #mbn #fitmomplan #fitplan #fitmum #bikinigirl #workingoutathome
Breaking up with sugar was soooooooo hard but sooooooo good! My belly shrunk like immediately and my energy levels went thru the roof. Who else is struggling to leave sugar behind in the dust? Pepsi and I had a torrid love affair for years. But we broke up. Fit and trim always feels better than sugar tastes..... so do it! #hotsexytropical #mauibodynow #mbn #fitnesslife #health #healthyliving #bikinilife #maui #hawaii #teethwerelost

Life is too short to be unhappy with yourself. Join my squad. Wake up with a flat stomach. (Can I tell you HOW AMAZING THIS FEELS!?!? Especially after two kids!?!?) This is what I'm hearing from the first group of ladies that have joined my little club!
🌴 "My butt is plumper and more toned!"
🌴 "My husband is seeing big changes and I just had a baby three months ago."
🌴"I can see my triceps developing!"
🌴 "I got a compliment on my legs!"
🌴"My waist is smaller!"
🌴"I've lost 10 lbs!"
It's no secret. They all are working hard. I see you girls committing to your men, your kids, your jobs, so why not commit to YOU? Choose YOU. I'm starting my next round of beta testing Monday March 26th. 8 weeks of fun, 8 weeks of committing to YOURSELF. (For once.) AND it's free. Direct message me for details. What's the worst that could happen? You end up hot, sexy and tropical? 👌🏻❤️🔥

Having Realistic expectations is crucial to your success with a healthy lifestyle. Looking online at women who are built much different than ourselves can really set us up for major disappointment and failure. I'm 38, have had two kids and am NOT a size 0. My main goal is to be the best version of ME. So check yourself! There is nobody else on the planet that is YOU. You are something special. YOU are something to be proud of. If we expect to work out and eat well and look like someone else we set ourselves up for failure. Set yourself up for SUCCESS by first accepting that you are AMAZING and that being the best version of you is all you need to be. So do it. Look in the mirror and say out loud, "I AM AMAZING!" #selflovefirst #hotsexytropical #womenloveyourself #motivation #alohafriday #health #bikinifit #fitness #mauibodynow #mbn PC: @demisheveland Bikini @lahanaswim
I love good deals and cute clothes. Who doesn't? But I'm a single mama who needs to get kids thru college and take care of my own Mama, so I can't be popping into Gucci and Louis. Forever 21 helps me feel stylish without breaking the bank! (This sounds weird and sponsored but it's not! Hahahaha!).

Don't give up! No matter what, keep pushing! Injuries will come and go. Health is never guaranteed. Pregnancies aren't forever. Babies grow up. If you get off the wagon, jump back on! I've definitely had my challenges. Money, single parenting, back injuries, jerky exes, etc. Its just a part of this thing we call life. Exercise and proper nutrition keeps your head screwed on straight and makes life just a little easier. So suck it up and let's do this. #hotsexytropical hotsexytropical #mauibodynow #fitmomsrock #igfitgirls #dontgiveupnow PC: @demisheveland
My almost 17 year old son mentioned how all the girls are taking pictures of themselves in the sunflower fields and how cliché it was. So naturally I had to do it too. Hahaha would to hear your stories about embarrassing your teens. I'm basically a pro, plus people look at us like we are dating sometimes. 🤣🤣🤣Love my dress from @forever21 ❤️ Feeling all fit and princessy! #mauibodynow #hotsexytropical PC: @demisheveland
Whenever I wear this sports bra it always reminds me of those 90's ads with Mark Wahlberg. Wow. Ummmm those abs.... he touched my hand at a state fair in Southern Oregon and I never washed it again. Most of us would like a flat tummy, and not necessarily a six pack! Direct message me your email me and I'll send you my 5 Exercise-less ways to blast your belly bulge. Then we can all be like Marky-Mark. 👅 p.s. Lying down makes my stomach look flatter. Part of my smoke and mirrors trick. 🤣🤣🤣 #hotsexytropical #abs #markymark #calvinklein #fitness #health
Instead of wasting time and ruining my skin "laying out" I found St.Tropez self tanning mousse. Oh em gee, game-changer! Give it a try! I feel so much better with a little color, but after living on Maui 20 years, the sun starts turning you into a reptile. And who wants melanoma? Not me. #mauibodynow #hotsexytropical #tan #bikini #maui #beach PC: @demisheveland

Do it. See what magic happens! Also: don't accuse us of being on our period if we are mad or have feelings. We have the full range of emotions just like everyone else! 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕 #internationalwomensday #wehavefeelingstoo #loveeveryone #allone #mauibodynow #hotsexytropical
Start your day out all fresh and happy. I like heart shaped foods. 🍓❤️#maui #hawaii #health #fitmom #cleaneating #instagood
Head on over to YouTube. Link in my bio. I'm creating Maui Body Now because I'm a full time working Mother and need a fast and effective workout plan. I'm not a fitness model or bikini model. Just a wannabe. Hahahaha no really though a lot of us feel like it's hard to relate to some of the people we see online. I'm 38, have two kids and work full time and still manage to keep a kick ass physique. I'll teach you how! Give it a try. It's free. #mauibodynow #maui #fitmom #bikinifitness #health #fitness #athomeworkout
