Every time you look at social media you are bombarded with #fitmoms who appear to be flawless and do everything right. At Stay Fit Mom we don’t want to be another slap to the face about how you could look so much better or how what you’re doing isn’t good enough. We love sharing REAL life with you and everything that comes along with it. This is why we are so giddy over our newest mom crush. I want to introduce you to someone who is just as beautiful on the inside and she is on the outside. This mom is the most humble person I know, she has an amazing spirit, she is very personable, down to earth, and just radiates happiness. This mom has a true love of health and fitness and she is kind enough to share a little bit of it with all of us. Meet our newest mom crush, Rebecca Berkabile!
We are thrilled to announce that Stay Fit Mom has opened up services for Macro Coaching! As a team, we collectively coach 15 women at a time through 6 weeks of personalized nutrition counseling. Why only 15? Because we want to give our clients the attention they deserve! Our coaching services will be conducted through a private Facebook group and will include one-on-one nutrition counseling tailored to your diet, macro adjustments as needed, meal ideas, as well as high levels of accountability and support.
I shared this protein pudding recipe on Instagram stories a couple weeks ago and now it’s come to the blog! I’d be lying if I said I don’t make this every week. Between my 5 year old, hubby, and myself we dig on this high protein pudding snack. It’s super easy to make and you can try out new flavors each time you make it.
“Geez, I feel fat today. Is this macro thing even working for me? I don’t look any different than I did 4 days ago, and the scale hasn’t budged. I think I’ll go eat cake and forget about this whole thing.”
Believe it or not, these are all thoughts that go through MY head on a DAILY basis while tracking macros. There are days when I feel super confident about the progress that I’ve made, and other days when I feel like I’m at a standstill. Weight loss for women is an extremely emotional process. I have discovered, from personal experience, that no matter how quickly I make progress (in the performance OR cosmetic department) it’s NEVER fast enough.
Wouldn’t it be great if there was some magical pill, wrap, or powder that could cure us from cellulite while simultaneously getting rid of all of our unwanted body fat?
Of course it would, but chances are if you’re reading this post and have followed us for a while, you know we don’t do fake. We’re all about REAL results, but we also won’t tell you that it’s a walk in the park.
These are pictures of real women with real bodies that have done some pretty amazing things. COMBINED these bodies have birthed 6 children, these bodies can squat over 350 pounds, and deadlift over 425 pounds. These bodies have competed in triathlons, 1/2 marathons, and CrossFit competitions. These bodies cook dinner every night, they diffuse tantrums on a regular basis, and chauffeur kids to and from playdates, activities, and school, all while trying to balance work in and out of the home. Not a day goes by that doesn’t call for crisis control, whether it be the loss of a favorite toy, or a complete emotional breakdown.
Counting macros isn’t difficult, but just like everything else in life there are a few tips and tricks that we want to share with you to help you get started and save some time. Welcome to Macro Hacks!! Let’s get right to the point- Once you know what you’re ideal macros are, where the heck do you keep track of them?
Today is a special day, Makenna is now 8 months! I can’t even believe how quickly she seems to be growing up. I swear it seems like just yesterday that I was complaining about how badly I wanted to have her already. She is starting to develop her own little personality and she’s just so much fun. Daddy captured a few pics of us today in the garage gym.

Remember in high school when you would call your mom to come pick you up during third hour because your cramps were so bad? No? Well, maybe that was just me, and maybe part of that was just my way out of Geometry, but my mom sure nurtured me full on Latina style. She brought me water, let me eat my meals from the couch, put heating pads on my stomach, and listened as I moaned and groaned about how rough it was to be a woman.
I sure do love my mom and all the nurturing that comes with her, but all that time I spent on the couch only made me focus more on how uncomfortable and awful that special time of the month really is. For the last 3 years I’ve worked out 4-6 days a week, at an intensity level my body hasn’t ever experienced before, and I’ve had fewer PMS symptoms than I’ve ever had in the past.
Oh Costco, how I love thee. Only at Costco can you find organic everything, tons of gluten-free, Whole30 friendly, and Macro Friendly AND the world’s best pizza all under one roof. When I first started counting macros I quickly realized that some foods were much more macro friendly than others. Even though you can eat just about anything IIFYM (if it fits your macros), we always encourage our readers to eat high quality, nutrient dense foods that will yield not only the best results in the cosmetic department, but also sustain your energy, and properly fuel your body.
