“The friendships and encouragement from all the women make it so much more than just a gym. When the Grind is kicking my butt, I just remember that this is why I'm stronger now than I've ever been.”
I worked as a NICU nurse for 10 years before deciding to have babies. Now I'm a stay-at-home mom. My husband David and I have been married for 17 years, and have lived all over the country.
I've always been kind of an exercise junkie. I was obsessed with trail running and hot yoga but after having my first baby, I found that it was really difficult to do those things with an infant! Ha!! What I needed was a quick and effective workout. Preferably one with childcare. Farmgirlfit is just that and more - from the free child care provided (by awesome fellow Farmgirls) to the carefully planned workouts.

My greatest FGF accomplishment would have to be a legless rope climb. Maybe someday I'll be able to do double-unders???
I actually LOVE plate pushes – yes they’re hard and well, terrible, but that’s why I love them. They’re so simple and just kick your butt! Lindsay and I had a little wager recently, and I WON, so for the whole month of July, she hasn’t been able to write her scores on the board, which actually hasn’t been quite as satisfying as anticipated.
Besides beating Lindsay 😉 this one isn’t necessarily related to FGF, but did happen there: I was explaining that I didn't eat meat and a friend said, "But you eat Elk, right?" … You know you’re in north Idaho when… 😂
My parents definitely inspire me to stay healthy and fit. They are in their mid-sixties and still in fantastic shape.
A mountain trail.
Definitely chocolate! I have to have some every day.
My Instagram name comes from a rescue Cornish Rex cat that we used to have. He was deaf so we named him Deafcon. And he was the COOLEST animal I've ever met.
