I actually made time to fit in a home gym workout today 🙌🏻. Fun little partner wod with Dust (really, the workout happened bc he asked if I wanted to join otherwise it wouldn’t have). Thanks to Crossfit Cove for posting your workouts so we can continue to work on our fitness and still feel a little bit connected even though we live so far away now❤️
I have exciting news! I’m finally ready to launch my passion project that I’ve been dreaming up ever since having C. It’s taken many forms and lots of changing my mind but I am so thrilled to be able to bring this service to my local community. I would love for you to check it out and share with anyone you think might be interested❤️
Introducing She Blooms Physical Therapy! I am so excited to be offering women’s pelvic health physical therapy services to the Findlay and surrounding area. I have been passionate about the pelvic health world for many years, but since becoming a mother myself I feel especially called to educate, empower, and help other women through this amazing and (at times) so tough time in their life. Teaching about and treating women who may have trouble holding their pee, feeling like something’s falling out down there, pain with everyday activities related to the changes your body is going through carrying and birthing a baby, pain during or after sex, diastasis recti or “mommy tummy”, and so much more. . Please head to shebloomsphysicaltherapy.com to learn more including where I will be treating, what are other common symptoms/dysfunctions I treat, how to schedule an evaluation or consult, etc. and don’t hesitate to ask questions! Lastly but not least thank you thank you thank you to everyone who has helped make this dream of mine a reality. I wouldn’t be here without my husband and kids, family, friends, and mentors. ❤️
Ready for a weekend of connection and recharging at the @modernmamaspodcast retreat. But first. Coffee & a little work. . #mstreetcoffee #modernmamaspodcast #wahm #wahmlife #momboss #ptmompreneur #mompreneurlife

Absolutely loved this podcast from Lori Forner and her guest Candace. Integrating pelvic health considerations with continuing fitness and return to fitness during pregnancy and postpartum is something I am super passionate about. Take a listen if you are into CrossFit or really any moderate or higher level intensity activity. The concepts discussed in this podcast can be applied across the board with any exercise you’re doing during this time in your life. I’m very excited to be getting back into working on this with individuals so don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions ❤️
Considerations for #Crossfit in #pregnancy – a very simple summary of my chat with Crossfit coach @candxxlamb on The Pelvic Health Podcast. Most women can continue safely during pregnancy, but it’s also not a time for women to push themselves as hard as they can. Priorities change. Have a listen and don’t forget to check out @shenashville for great tips ❤️
I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday ❤️. I have been slowly working on things behind the scenes here and have exciting news coming very soon about how my days are going to be changing. I’ve grown a lot in the last year and this summer was a huge turning point for me. I feel more like myself, more comfortable in who I am and the direction I’m heading, and also so changed at the same time. I’m nervous and excited and scared and bursting with joy about my new business adventure coming soon. . I’m so lucky to have an amazing support system who cheers me on with every step along with talented family and friends helping to bring my dream to life. I have definitely been dragging my feet a bit as I’ve gotten closer to being able to launch, and imposter syndrome threatens to consume me, but I can only prepare so much before I just need to leap. . Thanks to @ashleyboehler at @revivefindlay for giving me an extra pep in my step today as I hunker down to get all the little details sorted out.❤️
It’s my favorite time of year🍂❤️. Being able to really decorate this year is bringing me so much joy. I’m also daydreaming about updates to the outside of our house, like taking down some big-blocking-pine trees and painting. But for now, this will definitely do, and makes me so happy every time I see it.
It has been a long long time. A lot has happened, a lot has changed. Cliff notes version: I had my second child, and he is over 18 months old (whaaaat!?), we moved back to the midwest, and we bought our first home. It’s been amazing and hard and so many other emotions at the same time. I wanted to write here to check-in and say hello (I don’t think there’s anyone really here anyways). I started this blog with lot of big ideas and dreams and I still have them, but as I said, a lot has changed. There’s a big change coming quite soon (hopefully on the quite soon part) and I’m not sure what that means for this little space of mine on the web, but I can’t wait to share when it’s time.
Travel. I am not traveling too far, but this weekend I am headed to Pittsburgh for a PT continuing education course. I am so excited for it. It’s a continuation course of the foundations that Julie Wiebe teaches about the piston system and pelvic+women’s health. Since I haven’t been practicing in several months it will be really nice to have my PT hat and brain fully on for two days. And anytime I can hear Julie talk and learn from her I will.
Nervousness. With the course this weekend I’m actually spending 4 days in Pittsburgh. Dustin is joining me on Saturday and we’re going to explore the city a bit after my course is over for a couple days. I’m not nervous about that, but I am nervous (but excited also) because I am dropping off my little guy at Dustin’s parents on Friday and this will be the longest I’ve been away from him since he was born almost 16 months ago. It will be very nice to have the time away to just relax and hang out with Dustin especially, but I already feel like I’m missing my little guy and he’s not even gone yet. It’s a constant swing of emotions for sure.
Trying something new. I have been experimenting with different lipstick colors this week and it’s been fun. It’s pretty amazing how adding a pop of color to your lips/face can change your whole mood. The colors I’ve been experimenting with are from Beautycounter’s holiday collection, the lip intense set. And let me tell you, they can definitely be intense (but in a good way)! I need to work better on coordination g that color not not with my other makeup but my outdoor bit either way it’s been fun. I love the way they feeel on my lips, super moisturizing and glide on so smoothly, and they’re longer lasting than the traditional lip sheers. Also a lot of makeup and lipstick have heavy metals/lead in them and Beautycounter does third party testing to verify that their formulations are heavy metal free and so I love getting the pop of color and not having to worry about what is in the lip stick that I may be ingesting while wearing it.
Little kicks. My little guy #2 is mover just like his brother. I love feeling the kicks (except when it’s to my bladder) all throughout my day. It really just is amazing.
Over-thinker. I posted this on my Instagram and it’s just so true. I overthink and analyze everything. Especially my interactions with others. I hate thinking that I can word awkward or weird or made someone feel an emotion I wouldn’t want to feel and then I fret about it. It’s something I try to work on knowing that I can’t please everyone and sometimes unfortunately things just don’t come out right, but I’m human and it’s pretty common, so there’s that too. It’s nice to know you’re not alone with how you function even though we’re all so different. But either way I saw this post today and I just love when simple and semi-comical memes explain how I feel so well.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! What are your favorite places to visit in Pittsburgh? If you have any recommendations for things to do, see or eat send them my way! <3- Brittany
