Gosh, Mama. I promise – I get it.

Gosh, mama. I promise I get it.

I promise I’ve lived days where the mirror in the dressing room made me cry, bought a giant bag of m&ms to drown out the sorrow on the way home, then cut the tags out of my jeans so my husband (and not even my friends) wouldn’t know what size pants I really wore.

I promise I’ve lived years of showing up for everyone else who needs me – EXCEPT ME – and never making time for myself to GET healthy, GET happy, GET fit, GET free.

I promise you …I’ve lived week after week of telling myself I’m gonna do this… wanting to make it happen… but telling myself 10 reasons why I’ll fail, I’ll never finish, It’s not a good time, or it might be something I regret.

You know what I regret? Not doing it sooner. Talking myself out of a huge blessing just because I felt tired and scared.

Guess what? I’m not tired anymore. And I learned how to dance with the fear instead of letting it rule my life.

Mama… I’m looking for you ♡.

I’m looking for 4 women to link arms with over the next 100 days. Can you give yourself permission to get healthy and fit and totally transformed in 100 days?

100 days for you to find yourself again and stand proudly for the camera to flash.

100 days of workouts – with tons of variety and modifiers and options for wherever you’re at in your fitness level. Keep all the jumps out and stay low impact, or throw caution to the wind and leap as high as you can. Pump heavy weights to the beat of the music or keep it all bodyweight and love every second of the magic happening. Either way, there’s a person for you to lock eyes with and follow.

100 days of nutrition, flexible eating, overcoming emotional eating and changing your relationship with food. 100 days of still eating carbs and treats and silly foods – NO PERFECTION JUST PROGRESS – and seeing maintainable, feeling ah-mazing, results.

100 days of courage and positive mindset, of drowning out the voice of fear so your new inner brave girl can takeover.

100 days of community, of friendships in a safe space where you can come to share your struggle buses and victory dances.

100 days of accountability, in a private group where you’ll be able to check in every day as you make new lifestyle habits (including crushing your morning routine!)

100 days of me right alongside you, pushing for my own goals and grasping hands with you, showing up daily for you as your fitness partner and food freedom mentor, as we go through this 100 workout program together (and for as long as ya want me really, since I’m your coach for LIFE, not just for 100 days)!

…and mama most of all, 100 days of MAKING YOU a priority each day, so you can pour into those you love most from an overflowing cup instead of one that’s dry and empty.

Are you 1 of my 4? Drop me a “I’m committed!!!” to my inbox coachangelb@gmail.com Subject Line “BE 100” or message me on facebook and I’ll send you the all the deets you need to start with me!!

Can’t wait to chat, mama!!

Your Life Fit Coach,

– Angel

Strawberry Mint Popsicles

Most popsicles are made primarily of sugar, sugar, and then a little bit more sugar for good measure… but not these! These are the perfect poolside treat … they actually taste GOOD and they’re good for you. What could be better?! 

Strawberry Mint Popsicles

For the smoothest strawberry popsicles, you’ll want to blend all the ingredients on high speed until liquified. But if you do want a bit of texture, reserve some of the strawberries, adding them only at the end. Pulse the blender a few times to roughly chop them, before pouring the mixture into molds. 



  • ¾ cup water
  • ½ cup fresh (or frozen) strawberries
  • 2 scoops Strawberry Shakeology (whey or vegan)
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint, chopped



Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Divide evenly into four popsicle molds; freeze for at least 4 hours or until set.   Don’t have Shakeology? Grab yours here!

ALL NEW WORKOUT PROGRAM CALLED MORNING MELTDOWN 100 COMING SOON… check out my free info group to learn more and watch my instagram stories starting Monday for a sneak peek to the moves as I do them!







In case we’ve never talked about it – I wanted to share this post with you about WHY I feel lead to faith for fitness.  It all started with a lie from the enemy .  You can see the original post here 

When people told me …

You’re wide-hipped.
You’re thick-thighed.
Your butt is big.

Your voice is annoying.
You repeat yourself.
You talk too much.
You’re too loud.
You’re unapproachable.
You’re unrelatable.

You’re okay looking, but not beautiful.
Your forehead is too big.
Your teeth are too big.
Your hair is too big.

You’re too detailed.
You’re too literal.
You’re too intense.

You’re too modest.
You’re too preachy.
You’re too uptight.

You’re too poor.
You don’t have enough.
You’re not good enough.


And then God puts me on a fitness & coaching platform… a microphone on my head and a social media page and blog in my heart …AND HE SAID …

Wear the purple pants anyway. Be loud. Be intense. Be unapologetically you.

DO NOT HIDE WHO YOU ARE or the things people criticize you for.

You’re perfect for THIS assignment.

You’re above all those labels, not beneath them.

My Name is what defines you.

My Son is Who frees you.

My Light is shining through you.

My promises are to be active and alive in you.



Do not be ashamed of the body and soul I created for you to live in.

GO LIVE in it.


Live. Life. Fit.


Let’s Do Summer right, right?  If you could use a bit more sweat sanity in your life… you know where to find me!  

I hope July is incredible for you and I’ll talk to you soon!


Happy Summer, mamas!


I lost 45+lbs and then stopped

I lost 45+lbs to hit my goal dress size …and I’ve lost none since💋. I mean, ive maintained my goal dress size happily & gained incredible strength, flexibility… but my focus shifted from weight loss to maintenance and just treating my body well some time ago. For good reasons!!

I decided to work even more on my core & lower body strength for awhile after some hip pain last year remember? , 😩…and then at the same time refocus again on intentional rest and emotional eating. I have had some personal things hit me that for sure impacted my mindset… which had made some days harder than others not to lose myself in a package of chewy chocolate chip cookies 🍪🍪🍪 as I ran myself into the ground with anxious thoughts & a knot in my chest from worry. Every evening I was up late with thoughts, and every morning I willed my body to move and work and sweat instead of cry… then I’d collapse into God’s arms after and ask Him what was I to do next. I knew it wasn’t a season to chase hard on fitness goals. It was a season of spiritual goals, so I went into maintenance mode 🎯

I still was eating my big salads for veggies most, using my containers for portion control & keeping my energy up, drinking nut shake for gut health and nutritients, drinking all my water in a day and then some, using my workouts as therapy as I mentally and emotionally worked through worrying thoughts with my Creator as I lifted and stretched… just being free enough to not HAVE to be “on the wagon” or “off the wagon” 🙄👊🏼😘

Mamas… why do we say such things? There is no “wagon” for health and doing good by yourself. There is just LIFE and living it well from one season to the next. ✅☀️

I am aware of those who would prefer to put me in a box and say that because I’m a coach and instructor I need to feel pressured to look a certain way ALL THE TIME. 💙

But wearing those titles actually just helps me layer in more accountability to living in my best self – my healed self – to say and live in God’s heavenly perspective that YES, “it is well” with my mind, my body and my soul 🥰💃… no matter the season of life I’m in.

The titles are outward expressions of a transformation that first happened on the Inside of me before ever showing up outside. It was a decision I made based on knowing I was worth every effort and would continue to live at a less fulfilled state if I didnt. Not a proclamation of pursuit of perfection. 🙅‍♀️

Mamas… it is okay to just feel good about your journey and explore a little more balance in the pursuit to your healthiest self…❤ My journey isn’t about my leanest abs ever or somehow achieving a cellulite free set of legs. It isnt and actually never was about the hours of cardio or the plates of food…

It was about what I had learned to depend on when life got crazy or love felt scarce. That’s where the real work was for me. 💯💕

I did not & dont need to pursue a BMI as much as I need to hold steady the habits I’ve acquired over time to be the healthiest me in the face of the rest of life gone haywire. I need to know I can trust myself to choose life 🍏🧘‍♀️ when the stuff gets hard or just out of my control.

Does that thought make you see me differently? Or does it comfort you or scare you for your own journey?

I’d love to hear from you!!



I was ashamed of my body in photos – everything changed when I did this.

Maybe you saw this pic before but I want to tell you something I didnt tell you before when I first posted it.

I hear alllll the time “I can’t afford it right now” and I GET IT mama cuz I’ve been there… but… what I really had to ask myself when week after week and month after month passed and I was STILL using that SAME reasoning for not starting was…”is this really a priority for me, or am I putting something else before my health? Am I really wanting to be my best self, or am I letting fear of something else talk me out of my blessing? Am I willing to sacrifice something else not serving me, in order to make room for what I really want?”
This trip I took with Donald was MAJOR different than the first time we made this trip for our honeymoon, when I was too scared to appear even slightly confident in my bikini because the “hotter” girls on the beach might be laughing at me or heaven forbid I may be more embarrassing to my husband NOT to stay covered up!!!!! For real y’all THAT was my thought process on my honeymoon of all times!! And don’t get me started on the guilt and inner arguments with self about eating while on vacay. Trust me , I’ve been there and LIVED IT. This trip was SO different. Heck I had a dessert EVERY. NIGHT. And some days I had a cookie at lunch with my salad LOL… but let’s back up a minute to before I started this journey. To the time I thought….

” I CAN’T afford this. Donald wont be happy if I spend money on this.”

I had so many arguments and fears in my head telling me why I couldnt or shouldn’t, BUT…. y’all the truth is I finally came to a place where I had such a desire to be in a DIFFERENT place with my emotional eating, self sabotage, lack mindset, health and fitness … I DID NOT want to remain stuck there for life . I had to stop the madness.

So, when I met my lovely neighbor who introduced beachbody to me, I did NOT understand the cost of shakeology. I was so confused why the price was what it was. BUT when I started looking at the ingredients and what they did for my health vs WHAT I was currently doing that wasn’t giving me the results I wanted… when I started listening to the creators of the formula that goes into each bag and realizing they created it out of a personal need for their own health and to fill in the gaps of modern day food quality & the way we eat as modern day humans shopping from limited variety and limited knowledge at the grocery store… when I started accepting my role in creating my health and longevity for this life (in other words, no body else can do it for me)…

I decided I HAD TO MAKE MYSELF A PRIORITY and do what God was telling me to do to make my body well.

What happened next was amazing… because not only did I receive body wellness but mindset wellness. I received confidence and joy. I didnt need to cover up or apologize for wearing a bikini… whether I was size 6 or size 16!

This trip I let my husband take pictures of me in my bathing suit and more than that I WALKED FREELY by his side with happiness & joy… BUT MY MINDSET is so different !!!!

That shake I finally saw the value in i of stopped making excuses and saw that I could spend $4 on a sugary starbucks or $4 on my healthier self – it saves my waistline , my health and my wallet !
Mamas… here it is. All my rambling and sharing to this. The investment I made in myself … It didn’t just change my health , it changed my MINDSET which changed how I LIVE. If you want to make a change in how you are currently living… you HAVE TO DECIDE if you are willing to do something about it now so you can reap the benefits later.
Change something today to live in the outcome later!!! Theres no other way to get there.
And p.s.
If you’ve been waiting… wait no longer. PM me! My July waiting list is open. If you’ve been wondering… wonder no longer. Ask me! I’ll send you the answers you seek.


Lemonade Popsicles & Summer Wellness

A new month is just about here and I am so excited to invite you to join The Summer Wellness Club! In our June support and accountability community, you’ll find wellness tips for staying healthy in body and mind throughout the summer, some tasty (and healthy) summer treats, insights into some of the best seasonal ingredients and more.


This is not about restricting yourself to only eating boring salads all summer long. We believe in popsicles, pool time, and making the most of these warm months and we’d never ask you to sacrifice your happiness for a smaller number on a scale. But if you’re struggling with your nutrition or ready to incorporate more movement into your life, this is perfect place for you!
I’d love to give you the details on how to join us if you’d like! Just cruise over to your inbox, and I can send over the info if you email me coachangelb@gmail.com.


So… tell me?

What is more refreshing than lemonade on a hot summer day?! (Answer: nothing)

Tart Lemonade Popsicles

This easy recipe for lemonade popsicles uses just 3 ingredients: water, fresh lemons, and honey! If you wanted to boost the flavor profile for a night of summer entertaining, add ¼ cup fresh herbs or seasonings wrapped tightly in cheesecloth to the water and honey mixture. Boil for 5 minutes; allow to steep for 1-2 hours. Then, strain! You can play around with the flavor combinations and explore a little – ginger, rosemary, thyme, basil… be adventurous!

Whether you go with the simple version or an elevated herbal flavor, these pops are sure to delight!



  • 1½ cups water, divided use
  • 3 Tbsp. raw honey
  • ½ cup fresh lemon juice


  1. Heat ½ cup water and honey in small saucepan over medium-high heat; cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes or until well blended. Cool to room temperature.
  2. Combine honey mixture and lemon juice in a bowl or pitcher. Gradually add remaining water to desired taste.
  3. Pour evenly into four ice pop molds; freeze for at least four hours, or until set.

Summer is short and we want to take full advantage of it. Most of us are skilled at creating summer bucket lists as long as our arm… but then, too often, we head into fall feeling frazzled or unrested.


What if we first get super clear on HOW we want to FEEL this summer and then identify the specific goals or intentions that will best support us in feeling this way?! You with me?

This summer

I challenge you to answer this question, so that you can design a summer that leaves you feel all the joy and none of the stress!

I hope to have you join us in The Summer Wellness Club; feel free to message me if you have any questions or want more info! Have an amazing June!

Before you go….

I thought I’d share my very first 2 month results with my programs. Legit. Not even following a meal plan. Just drinking my shake and pressing play every day the workout calendar told me to. This pic below is one of those moments the shift I’ve been talking to you about blew me away. I asked my husband to take some progress photos for me. I was like “when did that happen?” I wasnt expecting my back fat to just melt away like that. I was just focused on getting stronger so the pain in my body from the car wreck & fall the year before would stop.


I was still a rebel with my eating LOL…I didn’t follow any “rules”. I just added in 1 shake a day after I worked out each morning. I just followed the instructions inside my little program guide. Whatever workout it said to do that day, I did. Sometimes alone. Sometimes with friends. Sometimes with hubby. Sometimes with kids.
That’s it. I pressed play. I drank my shake.
In other words… I kept it simple.

God has done so much in my life since I made to decision to choose wellness.

Let’s make YOUR first simple shift show up and surprise the heck out of you like mine did. PM me ♡! Let’s do this thing!!

– Angel

Deciding Your Day = Creating Your Life

“Mama, why are you aways so dancey and energetic?”

That’s a legit thing in my house 🤣…. Especially my 10 yr old when she’s in her quiet mood in the mornings. My kids often will hear me tell them that things like happiness, kindness, and joy are a CHOICE we make – no matter what kind of day we’re having, we get to CHOOSE how we are going to treat people around us and what kind of experience in life we want for ourselves that day.

WE GET TO DECIDE what kind of day we’re going to have!
Stack those days together, and we’ll be creating the LIFE we want to live!

I mean, I don’t walk around with a smile and a cheerful voice 100% of the time and I definitely have challenging days that make me want to curl up in bed and checkout – really, I do. But through an intentional journey to selflove, I’ve gotten clear on what makes ME happy and not just what makes OTHERS around me happy that would sometimes STEAL MY JOY instead of ADDING joy to my life. I’ve drawn boundaries in my heart and mind to guard and protect my PEACE.

I’m clear on what my priorities are for both me and my family. I spend majority of my time doing those things and dreaming up new ways to make those things happen. I can’t always decide what circumstances make their way into my life, but I sure can decide how I respond to them and how happy/positive minded I’ll be in spite of them. If every time something bad happened, I threw the towel in and focused on sulking more than on seeking WHAT I NEED TO DO to keep my priorities for health and happiness in the picture, I’d NEVER GET ANYTHING DONE FOR MYSELF. Period. I’d constantly be tossed to and fro like the wind – aimless and exhausted and achieving nothing.

This is ONE of the big reasons I’m so excited about my newest group forming next month. It will be MY FIRST ONE after becoming a Master Coach with a UPF Certification and experiencing the REvamped 21 Day Fix workouts LIVE every day with the Creator Autumn Calabrese. I’ll be taking everything from my intense nutrition training with her, combined with all my persoanl mindset and fitness experience , and delivering it at a whole new level of customized coaching into this group.

It’s gonna be more 1:1 interaction with my clients. We are focusing on going back to the basics with workouts, nutrition but also with our priorities – focusing on them! One of them being our relationship with our spouse and even a special focus on family nutrition for our kids. And I get it…. it’s not easy have a weekly date night OUT of the house – but it is possible to have them 1x a week IN HOME. So I’m bringing out some stay at home date night tips with me!

We will be sharing our favorite dinner dishes and mocktails for time with the hubs, comfort food and kid friendly meals healthified, AND how you can still enjoy the things you love WHILE getting results on your health and fitness journey!

We are calling it “Happy Healthy Home” and my 5 spots filled up so much faster than I anticipated!!! So I decided to open up 5 more….. but no more than that because I want to keep it a manageable size group of women I can truly give attention to! So if you want to be considered for 1 of the spots message me here and we can chat!

100 Days to Brave – Day 30 – Tell Someone

#100DaystoBrave devo & faith for Life Fit coffee chat 

Good morning!! Do you have a dream or desire for your life that you’ve never told anyone? Today’s call to BE BRAVE: Tell someone!!

3 Tips to Beat Food Temptations

We’ve all been there — we go out to eat and the friends are like, “Let’s all get a brownie a la mode and share it!” OR the well meaning friend in the office pushes a cupcake into your hand, right after you’ve promised yourself you’re sticking to your meal plan FOR REAL this time.

Food FOMO (fear of missing out)& Food bullying (peer pressure to eat what everybody else is)- it’s a real thing!

Here are 3 Tips I shared today in The Life Fit Mama Collective to beat the temptations in the moment in a polite way without feeling “left out” –

1. Remind myself I can have it some other time. This is a HUGE desire shift in my mind when I tell myself this truth. That this is NOT the only time or last time I”ll ever be able to eat the cheesecake, have the pizza, drink a coke. So therefore, I don’t need to partake in it. I know what it tastes like, and I know I’ll have another opportunity on another day. But today, it’s not on my priority list.

2. I can bite it, taste it, and leave it. I don’t have to inhale the entire piece (or sheet) of cake. I can decide I want to take a bite to taste what the special filling is that everyone is talking about and then leave it be. This is the difference between 50 calories and 500 calories, without feeling deprived or like I missed out on what everybody was enjoying.

3. It’s not for me. During my 3 week cleanse going on right now, I’ve have many times I’ve used this reminder in my head to keep me from feeling triggered to eat something off my meal plan that doesn’t support my goals for cleansing my gut right now. When my kids had pizza last night, I wasn’t tempted by the smell of cheese and pepperoni because in my mind I had already DECIDED that “it wasn’t for me”… so my brain and my tastebuds didn’t even compute it as an open option to consider salivating over. What I HAD made up my mind about and imagined my tastebuds experiencing later was what I had planned to have for dinner — my microgreens salad and a bowl of warm roasted bell pepper & sweet potato soup. Therefore, when the pizza was RIGHT THERE on the counter, it wasn’t even a thought to abandon my plan… because that pizza wasn’t “for me”. Get it??

For more tips and deeper insight into how to overcome food temptations and self-sabotaging temptations for the long haul of LIFE —>

I’m continuing the discussion on my blog this week (so keep tuning in) AND in my private community group The Life Fit Mama Collective this week<<—- (click to join! ) where I”ll be sharing my personal experience and insights to no more FOMO and self sabotage where food is concerned 😉

Keep living Life Fit Mama!
