Berry Oat Cobbler {Eat Better, Not Perfect}

I am really putting forth effort to cook more (above basics).  Food prep for the past 5 years has been basic proteins, veggies, and sweet potatoes- nothing more.  So what changed last week? Well my son, whom I love more than life, has decided he wants to try out for football next year so we […]

Why can’t I lose weight?

Over the course of 5 years, I have trained hundreds of girls in my personal training programs and thousands in my e-programs. I started my career as a personal trainer with “6 Week Phit Challenges” 5 years ago. These online groups were so popular I had a wait list to join because I typically only take […]

Banana Nut Bread Protein Pancakes

I can’t cook. I’m not kidding, Hell’s Kitchen won’t be calling me anytime soon. I’m not a good chef, I’m not good at coming up with recipes, and I am not good at making ideas up on a whim. So- since this actually turned out pretty yummy? I’m stoked!   Normally though…this is how I […]

I moved.

I didn’t like where I was, so I took the advice of Jim Rohn. I moved. Facebook was making changes that made it hard for my friends and followers on TDF to see my posts. I was getting loads of messages from people telling me they weren’t seeing TDF in their newsfeed and they were […]

Hey you…look over here!

“I saw recently someone telling people they weren’t good enough unless they pushed harder…oh sigh. Sad, sad.

How much weight have you lost?

Well… are you asking me? Because if so, then I will ask you, “Which time are you referring to? Over the course of my adult life, I have lost and regained so much weight that I lost track.” This blog is going to touch on a subject that MANY women struggle with. I am expecting […]

I want a perfect body by Stephanie Powell

What is the perfect body? What does it look like to you? What does it symbolize? by Stephanie Powell, TDF Manager and owner of Fit Mom Diaries  If someone asked me that today, I would tell you “imperfections, strength, confidence, and love. That to me is a perfect body.” If someone had asked me that […]

What’s in your gym bag?

    So you have watched that ultra long video and you are probably thinking- “Crystal you didn’t have to explain why EVERY item was in your bag, you only had to show us” … but if I did that, then I wouldn’t be ME because my personality requires me to give a reason for […]

If given the chance to better yourself, would you take it?
