Swair Hair – Dry Shampoo – Best dry shampoo ever – use code SISSYMARONEY for 20% off

3-in-1 Box Jump/Bench – Soft Side

I love this for doing box jumps without hurting yourself if you miss.  You can also use this as a bench for presses or hip thrusts.

Foam Roller:

Love this medium tension roller for myofascial release of the back, legs, and hips.

Roller for Sports:

The kids keep one of these in their sports bags to warm up muscles and release tension after swimming and for football/track season.

Love Tuckets Barre Sox

I love these non-slip socks for Barre/Pilates/Yoga. I also encourage my seniors to use them for a non-slip surface while practicing balance drills – allowing your toes to touch the floor makes balance training easier.

Booty Kicker Barre

I love this at-home Barre because it is sturdy and useful for weight-bearing barre work and will also house 3 sets of dumbells.

Vanilla Protein

Chocolate Protein

Liquid IV – Hydration/Electrolytes for the kids

Gluten-Free Bread alternatives

Ancient Nutrition Multi collagen

I recently switched to this collagen because it also has a probiotic and Vit. C – I add this to coffee, smoothies, soups, muffins, oatmeal, and pancakes.  It’s a great way to sneak in some protein for kiddos


My OB doc recommended this product to help me sleep better. Magnesium has many benefits and plays many crucial roles in our bodies.  Magnesium is fantastic for brain health, better sleep, improved mood, and promotes bone health.

Cute Water Bottle Water Tracker


Supplement support healthy blood sugar levels, better sleep, and decreased sugar cravings. I don’t personally take this product but several of my clients do and they have been happy with the results.

About ME

Welcome to my Fitness and Lifestyle blog.  I created this little space on the world-wide inter-webs so I could share some helpful tips to add activity and healthy habits to your life.

I hope to offer you some insight and ideas towards small lifestyle changes that with consistency can lead to big results.

Along the way, we will chat about some of my favorite topics: Fitness, Family, Food, Fashion, and Faith. I promise we will have FUN along the way!

Hi there! I’m so happy you are here!

I love coffee, wine, cooking, workouts, shopping with Momma, statement earrings and bangle bracelets, family time, oversized sunglasses, Netflix, a well-placed cuss word, alliterations, and Jesus! Oh, and I love all things with sparkle and GLITTER!

Like all of you……. I wear many hats in this world.  Literally and Figuratively.  I love baseball caps. I love beach hats. I love casual hats.

Thank God I’ve worked in some type of gym environment for the past 30 years that deems this “cap” practice acceptable in the workplace.

Here are a few of my professional Hats:

  • BS Nutrition – Texas Tech University – 1995
  • MBA Business Management – Our Lady of the Lake University – 2001
  • AFAA Certified Group Fitness Instructor – 1991
  • ACSM Certified Exercise Physiologist – 1997
  • Personal Trainer – Gym/In Home/Online
  • Yoga 4:13 – Barre and Pilates Instructor
  • Bulverde Spring Branch Senior Center – Wellness Coach and Senior Fitness Instructor
  • Garage Boot Camp Instructor
  • Noonday Collection Ambassador
  • Mom – Wife – Daughter – Sister – Friend – Cousin – Niece – 2nd Mom to lots of teenagers

My personality leans towards extrovert (ENFJ) with a deep desire to be a Helper (Enneagram 2w3). Mixed in is a whole lot of sass, joy, witty humor, facial expressions that say what I’m really feeling, lots of giggles, a pinch or 2 of sarcasm, and a whole lot of FAITH.

Thanks for joining me on this journey. I’m only here because of my supportive group of family and friends. If I had a dollar for every time someone told me to start a blog I would be rich. Most recently, I chronicled out life during the pandemic shut down.  I wrote a daily diary of our crazy days trying to keep busy and some serious meme madness to keep us laughing.

Until next time, I wish you…….

JOY with glitter on top,
