Wow! Has it been seven years already? We had a fabulous time celebrating Fit4Mom Grapevine/Coppell/Colleyville’s seventh birthday! We met some new friends and had tons of fun.

The day started with an inspiring workout that included tough Stroller Strides and Stroller Barre strength exercises, plenty of exhilarating cardio, and lots of laughs. Who knew freeze tag could be even more fun with squats?

After the workout we enjoyed snacks, chalk, bubbles, and friends. Everyone went home with something special from our prize drawing!

Congratulations to Kara, who won a Buckshot Pro all-in-one wireless speaker/flashlight/power bank provided by Outdoor Tech! What a great prize!

We were thrilled to have lots of great prizes and goodies to give away! Special thanks to our sponsors, who helped make the day a great one!

I used to hate my hair. And my teeth. And my ears. And my thighs. I used to think I was ugly and nobody would ever like me.

I want something different for my children.

We all grew up surrounded by messages telling us what we should look like, how we should dress, what we should talk about, and how we should feel. And in today's information age, our kids are going to be bombarded with those kinds of messages even more than we were.

So, mamas, how do you cut through all that? How do you turn down the noise and teach your kids healthy attitudes and productive self-talk? We want to know your tips for helping our little ones grow up with healthy attitudes and self-confidence in a world of always-on media and targeted advertising.

Comment below, email sarahchristinejenne@yahoo.com, or hit us up with a message on Facebook. We'll include your comments in a blog post to share with our village!

Hey, everyone! It’s vacation time! Don’t forget to pack your workout clothes! You didn’t think you were just going to relax the WHOLE time, did you? As a strong, healthy mom, you’ll want to stay active and work out while on vacation.

I love vacations. It’s the time of year when I get to fulfill all my regular mom responsibilities in a hotel room, at a campsite, or from the front seat of my minivan. (“Stop looking at your sister!” “Don’t you dare throw that!” “Leave your brother alone!” “Don’t eat that!” “Please don’t barf!”) Of course, there’s lots of fun and relaxation involved, too.

But how can you stay active when you’re away from home and your beloved Fit4Mom classes?

It starts with planning.

If you plan on exercising on vacation, you’ll be prepared and excited when the time comes. What do you like to do? How can you make it happen while you’re on your trip?

Here are some possibilities:

A video workout of your choice

A run on the beach or through the woods (Yes, please!)

A HIIT workout (Check out the one...

I started off this year resolving to lose weight, finish my novel, get my house organized, and cook healthier meals for my family.

Absolutely none of that has happened. It’s June. We are halfway through the year, my friends.

What did happen?

Sometime in February, I decided to start working from home. And that was when the diaper hit the fan.

I gained weight.

I put the novel on the back burner to deal with more pressing issues.

The clutter increased all by itself, as clutter tends to do. Also, I “forgot” to fold the laundry. A lot.

I started buying more fast food while I tried to stay ahead of the crazy.

Some days I feel like I can barely stay afloat. And I have a sneaking suspicion that every mom feels this way, at least sometimes. Every one of us works hard, regardless of whether we get paid. We have that in common. So, for the sake of all of us moms, whether we’re working in an office, in a store, in a school, or at home, I’m declaring a do over.

That’s right. You get to make mid-year resolutions! I have...

11. Is my kid the only one crying? Oh, no. He’s making everyone else cry.

I know it feels like your kid screams the loudest. But believe me, that’s only because he’s yours. He’s probably not the only one crying, and even if he is, we’re all moms. We can share toys, make faces, or just tune it out. Whatever works. We’ve all been there.

10. I hope we don’t have to do burpees/push-ups/mountain climbers/cartwheels.

There can be all kinds of reasons you don’t want to do a particular exercise. If you’re nervous about doing it wrong, our instructors are here to help. If you have an injury or don’t feel strong enough, there’s an alternative that’s just right for you. And working out makes you stronger, so that burpee or push-up or mountain climber that seems out of reach today may be your favorite exercise next month. No cartwheels. Promise.

9. I don’t think I can do this.

Yes, you can. Whether you’re not sure about working out, worrying about mom stuff, or have lofty goals, we’ve got your back. We are your village.

New mothers have a lot in common. For one thing, we’ve all got babies. For another, we’re all incredibly confused. Don’t let the mom who looks like she has it all together fool you; she’s just as mixed-up and frazzled as the rest of us.

Anyone who has a child is looking for answers. Trust me on this one: nobody knows the best way to parent your child. Nobody, that is, except you. Not your grandma, not your mom, not your neighbor, and not the parenting expert with the best-selling book on how to get your child to sleep. (Do babies sleep? I really don’t think mine did until they were in preschool.) These people all know a lot and are worth listening to, but they don’t know your baby like you do.

As a new mom, you have a lot of questions, and they start before the baby is even born.

Should I play music for my unborn baby?

Should I give birth at home, in a birthing center, or in a hospital?

Should I breastfeed or bottle feed?

Should I use disposable diapers or cloth diapers?

Should I co-sleep or put baby in her own room?

Should I go to...
