Consistency is KEY

What you do consistently over time > what you do or don’t do one day.

Full Disclosure. I LOVE to workout. I crave that post workout high. Love nothing more than being in an empty gym, and genuinely look forward to my workouts every day.

Having that love of fitness has been AMAZING but that doesn’t mean I don’t have my fair share of struggles too. 💕
I HATE vegetables.
I STRUGGLE with emotional eating. 🍿
I get HUNGRY often.
I would rather SNACK than eat whole full meals.
I have the world’s biggest SWEET tooth. 🍫
Nutrition has always been a struggle point for me, and is something I will forever be a work in progress on.
So how do I tackle it?! I recognize that nobody is perfect and focus on the fact that what I do consistently over time, will always outweigh what I do or don’t do in one day. So I balance it.
I stick to my consistent daily workouts that I love.
I try to make the BEST nutrition choices I can each day. 🍓
I set myself up for success by planning and prepping my meals. 🍴
And I also cut myself some slack and don’t beat myself up when I have an off day, eat a cookie, or find myself munching out of stress. I just do the BEST I possibly can. 🍪

Remember: What you do consistently over time > what you do or don’t do one day.

Which do you struggle with more FITNESS or NUTRITION?




Left: 6 years ago
Right: Today

I didn’t know where to start.
I had no clue where I would end up. 
But I knew I needed to change.
It wasn’t easy. It was filled with failures. But it was so very much worth the fight.

Cheers to gaining strength, creating your own happiness, and learning that time can be a very beautiful thing. 🍾 💕

A Perfect Start

When is the PERFECT time to start your health and fitness journey?

My REAL answer: Never. Danielle-Prestejohn-56 (1)

The season of New Year’s Resolutions and starting on Monday is upon us… but one of the most important things I’ve learned is there will never be a best time to start a health and fitness journey.

*Life is always going to be busy.

*There’s always going to be an upcoming event.

*You’re never going to have a surplus of money to afford it.

*You’re never going to feel READY

So what if instead of waiting for Monday, or January 1st, or until you feel ready you started right now?! Made one small (or BIG) change to take a step to a healthier life. It doesn’t have to be a drastic change. Small changes daily when life is chaotic will still add up over time. In fact, it will add up to WAY more than if you keep WAITING for that perfect starting point. Are you in?


I used to HIDE. And not just in sweatshirts, but I let how I felt about my body affect how I felt about myself as a person. 👗

One of the most rewarding things to see my clients gain is the confidence of feeling better in their skin. 🙌

Change doesn’t always happen on the scale. 
It doesn’t have to be reflected in a different clothing size.
Change isn’t always seen on the exterior.

But I do know this… Change happens when you decide you deserve it. 💕


For the mamas…

❌   Reality ❌
In LOVE with this reality check from @sandrauhrdin 🙌

I have so many new mamas approach me post pregnancy, ready to immediately get their bodies back.

But here’s the thing, motherhood and pregnancy is a beautiful thing and YOU DO NOT NEED TO RUSH. Social media is plastered with before and after transformations of new moms but every body is different, so please stop comparing.

Slow down. Enjoy the time with your little one. Take steps to be healthy every day.

Your body will recover.
You will get back in shape.
It’s NORMAL to feel uncomfortable in your skin for a bit.

Give it time, and love, and enjoy. You don’t have to be perfect. No one is.
Keep going mamas you’re doing great. 💕mama
