Super Excited to Sweat Pink !!!

Hiiii!

I’m super excited as just today I was notified of my acceptance into the Sweat Pink family! My name is Karen and I have a health and fitness blog Kama Fitness where I share healthy recipes, workouts and of course health and fitness tips & tricks!

I am currently a certified personal trainer and have been for the past 4 years. I love working with clients of all types because it only helps to further my knowledge.

I love to motivate and especially make people smile. I am a hard worker, fun loving and super sarcastic kinda gal! I love to joke around and have fun, throw heavy weight around and recently I’ve discovered a new found love for Yoga.

I’m excited to meet new people and also to obtain some awesome motivation from you all! If you have any tips for me, please send them my way! ;)

Thanks for reading!!

xxKaren

Comeback Momma: A Fresh Start

A fresh start

Yoga keeps me balanced in more ways than one!

Hi, I’m Jenn. I’m a proud mom, wife and household CEO living outside Boston. I am making a comeback toward emotional and physical health and fitness. I hope to inspire other moms who have had setbacks to find the strength to make a comeback of their own. Here is the story of my “Aha Moment!”

After successfully losing over 50 post-baby pounds and rebounding from post-partum depression twice, I became a successful blogger and personal trainer. I got in the best shape of my life and even became a success story featured in the P90X commercials. Except for being a little embarrassed when neighborhood kids would say, “Mrs. Mitchell, I just saw you on TV.” I was happy, healthy and feeling great.

Unfortunately, after an injury in late 2011, my anxiety and depression returned. I gained 20 pounds and fell off the internet for nearly a year. My friends on Facebook, and at the gym, wondered what the heck happened to me. For the most part, I kept myself completely sheltered with only close family members knowing what was going on. I felt ashamed that I could not make myself healthy.

With the help of my therapist, I finally found my “Aha Moment.” I had been putting too much pressure on myself to be the perfect roll model and expert on my old blog (Personal Fit Coach). That blog was no longer genuine to who I am now. So, “Comeback Momma” was born. I am starting fresh with this new blog to share my experiences with all things health and fitness including my successes and my struggles. What is most important about my comeback is being focused on my emotional health first. Exercise and eating right is the best medicine there is. My comeback includes taking it slow and steady for my family, and for myself. THIS is the new me. I am not striving to be perfect, but to better myself, even if just a little, each and every day.

Come say hello at my blog ComebackMomma.com, on Twitter or on Facebook.

All the best in health and fitness,
Jenn
