Busy Mom Life Hack - ClickList & Kroger


Convenience is a necessity for me these days!  anything that can make my life run even the tiniest bit smoother, reduce stress & anxiety, and allow me to spend more time with my fast-growing family, i’m all for it.  speaking of my fast growing family, we eat a lot, so i cook… a lot!  i’m in the grocery store every single week shopping for either my family or for our meal prep clients. unlike everybody i know, i actually enjoy the grocery shopping experience, haha.  realistically though, i can’t always take my sweet time and stroll down aisle after aisle, especially when my kids are present.  some days i literally need to run in and out, and just getting in and out of the car can be a big deal with young kids.  then once we get inside, that’s a whole new ball game :) . 

This is why i love and depend on ClickList.  it’s an online grocery ordering service from Kroger that’s crazy convenient and works with my busy, mom of three lifestyle.  follow my Instagram Stories today to see how easy it is to use or check out the YouTube video (to be uploaded soon!).  i normally create my grocery list on Sunday evenings or Monday mornings when i’m getting my life together for the week, and schedule to pick up our items the following or the same day. Kroger welcomes the use of digital coupons and the product prices are the exact same as if you were shopping in the store.  the 4.95 service fee is waived for your first three orders, and there is no minimum or maximum amount to spend!  love. that. my grocery hauls range in size depending on the number of clients i have that week, and we normally need the same basic items at home. ClickList lets me save a particular grocery list and i am able to reorder it as needed with the click of a button.  it’s one less thing i have to worry about and can allocate that time to my family or the other 2 billion things on my never-ending to-do list. 


after logging into my account, selecting my saved list or creating a whole new one, i simply pull up to the ClickList parking spot at the pickup time/location i selected, and call the number posted on that designated spot. i let Chiso do the honors this time.


super quick wait, and the associate promptly comes out to greet us. he/she goes over any changes or substitutions on my order, loads up my groceries, and we're done!  let's say i specifically ordered half a dozen eggs.  if there were no more half-dozen cartons available,  i would be upgraded to one dozen eggs, and i'd pay the half carton egg price.  win-win! check out the ClickList FAQ page for more details. Kroger has proven that quality is their top priority by hand selecting all produce, meat, and/or seafood items with great care.  quality is a must and is extremely important to me!  i require the freshest ingredients for my clients and my family’s meals, and unblemished produce is needed for my food photography and blogging.  i can trust that my items are stored appropriately until pickup time rolls around. 

 now i can get right home to cook, sit down, and eat dinner with my family with the time i would have used shopping in the store.  now that is time well spent in my busy mom book.

happy bump day + one of my fave sports bras for the fit pre/postnatal mom


happy BUMP day!


 got a 1-on-1 session with my girl, Amaka, bright and early this morning.  i filmed a snippet of her squatting for two on my snap chat; did you see it!? hello, snap chat is WAY fun. apparently i've been missing out.  sorry not sorry, periscope.20160302_090730-01

guns and buns.


fact or myth: if you have never exercised (or its been a good while since you've done anything) then pregnancy is not the time to start.

MYTH! pregnancy is not the time to go for a new squat PR, give flag football a try, or train for a marathon... obvi!  it's no excuse to spend almost 10 months on the couch either though.  start with low impact things like brisk walking, swimming/water aerobics, and light/moderate, basic weight lifting.  in most cases exercise helps fight back strong against fatigue, mood swings, aches, pains, stiffness, swelling, and discomfort.  


for all prenatal and postpartum (doesn't matter how long ago you gave birth!) inquires, email me:




y'all. this bra.  sassy, strappy, stylish, and most important, supportive.  out of all the bras i've tested these past few months for my prenatal and postpartum fit moms, this was number one in my book, ladies! i could not wait to share this sneak peek!  i have bought and gone through a ton of cheap sports bras over the years to support my active lifestyle, but eventually i began to purchase them with my handbag mentality.  that just means i'm willing to shell out a little more than i normally would in exchange for top quality, durability, cuteness, color, and support all in one.  i finally found that in this bra, no doubt. 

fabric + features

  • Luxtreme® fabric is cool-to-the-touch and sweat-wicking 
  • added Lycra® fibre bends with you and stays in great shape
  • pockets for optional, removable cups
  • designed to provide support for C/D cups - even 36DDD!

the back is gorgeous, right!?  coral is one of my fave spring colors. i've put this thing through intense HIIT sessions, plyometrics, running/sprinting, and weight lifting, and it passed each one with flying colors.  the 'girls' are always comfy and secure, and it never feels like i have an inner tube tucked under my arms. i do a lot of jumping in my classes but i have no nip slip fear because of the full coverage.  my compression crops are heavily discounted right now and almost sold out!!  i got them for black friday last year.

currently in rotation on my feet:
