Why did you start your blog and what motivates you to write?
I started nourished mommy for a few reasons… one being an ‘outlet’, time for ME to just be me! Two being another way to help others with theyre health and fitness goals, offer workouts and fun&healthy recipes! I adore helping people and being around people so the chance to reach out to hundreds of people a day warms my heart!

When do you find time to write in your blog?

That’s a good question LOL! With a 7 month old whose now on the go usually while im having breakfast or while Brayden is napping and I get to sit and enjoy a coffee and some quiet time to myself!

What is your favorite/best part of your day?

Waking up to my little man, always so happy and so full of energy. I don’t remember life before him, my life has done an incredible 360 in the last year and I am just SO thankful – especially in the mornings while I play, cuddle and just take it all in!

What helps you stay sane?

Most definitely my mid-morning workout while Brayden has his cat nap & checking my messages from clients to hear how great everyone is doing, feeling and progressing towards they’re goals!

If you had unlimited funds where would you travel to and why?

ANYWHERE south! Ive been a few places but id love to get out and experience places with my little family. Brian has never left Ontario and I think he would LOVE it! I love everything tropical, and would go crazy for unlimited access to tropical fruits <3<3

What do you love most about the city you currently live in?

I currently live in a very small town -Norwich, Ontario! I wouldn’t say that I love it here, I grew up a few towns away and that’s ‘Home’ to me. I do love my neighbour, she is basically my dog and cats ‘other’ mother and is always trying to help & I love the local foods from all the local farms!

Where is your favorite place to shop (for clothes)?

hmm .. I LIVE in workout clothes, and the other time I try and dress nicely when we go out 😉 id have to way winners is one of my FAVS, sport check and recently Old Navy has become a huge favorite as brayden is growing and they ship to my door within 2 days!!! #winwin

What song puts a smile on your face no matter how many times you hear it?

‘Girls just want to have fun’ EVERY. DAMN. TIME! its just a breath of fresh air, andddd takes me back – waaaay back!

If you could stay a certain age forever, what age would it be?

I think I would stay 23. im LOVING this year of my life! Being a mommy, becoming an entrepreneur and finding just peace and happiness within my life and my little family. I truly don’t know what I would do if things were different, or where I would be for that matter! #thankful.

Who is your biggest fan?

I have an beautiful, loving, hard working mom who always has my back, 2 incredible sisters who are always there when I need anything even if its just a 2 min phone call and my MAN ❤ who goes along with every crazy Idea I have, works so hard but is still so devoted to always making me feel special and setting time out for us, its been such a crazy amazing 6 years, Im so blessed to have him as Braydens daddy & my partner!

What are three things you could not live without?

1.Brayden & Brian
2. Friends & close family

3. my shakeology… literally LOL my body I swear shuts down without it.

AGAIN thank you so much for the nomination, now id like to pass that forward ..

  • the remaining cottage cheese and 1/2 cup shredded cheese.
  • another layer of noodles, last bit of the meat, top with shredded cheese and sprinkle the parmesan!
