A Big Thumbs Up From Trainer Momma!

I know you all know I am a HUGE Trainer Momma fan, and I hope I've converted most of you to reading her blog. I think her information is solid, and her posts are so entertaining. One of the things I love about her is I can e mail her questions and she is so quick to respond. She is part of the reason I am doing so well with my weight loss goals. The other reason I am doing so well is all of you at Healthy Wife Happy Life. I can't even express my gratitude for your support. I fell off the bandwagon last challenge and thought to myself, "who's going to really notice, I don't even really know these girls". Boy was I wrong. Your comments are always positive and your posts are so inspiring. I NEED this blog. It helps me stay focused and realizing I am not alone in this health challenge. And yes some days it does feel like a challenge. Breaking years of unhealthy habits is so hard. Anyway, I wanted to share with you something Trainer Momma e mailed me. Keep in mind that she has thousands of fans, and she still has a moment to send me a quick message. I asked her if there was an easier way to navigate through her posts, and here is what she wrote:

"Alicia- I just found your happy wife website and commented about this. I am in the process of making some improvements on TM, so this will be one of them. Thanks so much for the feedback. It helps me tremendously! Sounds like you figured out how to use the find it bar in the right side bar. And there are archives in the right side bar as well listed by month and year. Thanks for the references... I love what you are doing over on that happy wife website."

A big applause goes out to Audrey for starting this. You are all amazing women and if you ever make it out to Salt Lake, I would love to meet you.


  1. I'm not too far my friend! I am in Lehi so if you ever want to get together for a workout sometime just let me know :)
    Even though we don't see each other in person we are still held accountable. We still encourage and want everyone to succeed. That's why we are all here!!!
    I am glad your back on the wagon!

  2. Alicia, we're here for encourage you and cheer you on. Stay with us!

    That trainer mama...she's so cool.

  3. Ditto to everything that you said, Alicia! I can't thank you enough for introducing us to Trainer Momma. I've read every post she's put up since you first mentioned her!

    I just may be in Salt Lake this summer. I would absolutely LOVE to go running with you. But I'm pretty slow!

  4. So cool to get a little shout out from THE trainer mamma! And Alicia, we love you and hope you'll stick around for a long time . . .

  5. HE SAID..."I didn't say it would be easy, but it will be worth it"....that goes for most things in life don't you agree?.

  6. Alicia, I'm glad that you didn't mind my email to check on you. As I have been running around like a crazy woman for the last few weeks I have really relied on the fact that I get every comment sent to my phone. It's fun to see what everyone has to say and see who is commenting.

    I'm so glad that Marci asked you to join our little happy wife community. It's great to be motivated by you and know I'm accountable to others besides for myself.

    If I have my way I'm planning a cross country drive with my kids next summer that will end in Utah for family reunion. We will definitely have to connect if that happens!

  7. Alicia, I am so proud of you. It is so easy to fall off the bandwagon. I feel like I am barely hanging on. It's so awesome that we are all in this together, even though you are so far away. I wish we could run together our vibram shoes. I think I am going to buy them, and read the book you recommended. I'll let you know what I think about them. Keep up the good work, and thanks for encouraging us!
