Balancing health and happiness

I’ve talked about Gillian of Momshells.com many, many times. She is the guru on balancing health and happiness in your life.

Gillian and Momshells.com are kind of a big deal in STL. She’s the go-to fitness coach for women in the area and she is AMAZING at what she does.

But here’s a story she talked about on her Instagram a few days ago.

“Trying to be fit was making me crazy. 

I’m here to tell you a little story about my health and fitness journey. My love for fitness was destroying my health and happiness. 

Nine years ago, I was an absolute nut- writing down every single morsel of food I put in my mouth. Driving myself crazy with calculations, I was weighing myself numerous times a day, and trying to cram as much gym time into my schedule as a busy, working mom.

In turn, these behaviors led to poor sleep, out of control hormone issues, and binge-restrict patterned eating.

I was in a really dark and lonely place.

I never took invitations to hang out with friends for fear that I would come off my diet or have to miss a workout. 

This behavior all started for me when I began my journey in the fitness industry in 2007. I was a success story for a weight loss product and was featured in magazines and on TV.

The stress and pressure of feeling that I needed to look very lean and tiny lead me to very unhealthy behaviors. I was burdened by hours and hours of cardio in an attempt to burn off calories consumed during binges due to the enormous amount of pressure I felt.”

Blog: Balancing Health and Happiness with Momshells.com// blue and white striped swim suit//boudoir pose standing//see more at boudoirbytracylynn.com/blog//Photo by Boudoir by Tracy Lynn of St. Louis MO

The pregnancy of her second child woke her up and helped her pay attention to her health.

“I had to stop dieting and over exercising for the sake of my baby and the actual physical changes during that pregnancy corrected many of the hormonal and metabolic issues that I had created for myself through the years of terrible lifestyle habits that I believed were healthy and necessary to be fit. 

When my daughter was born, I vowed to be a positive example to her in a world with intense societal pressures to look a certain way, more now than when I was growing up.

I couldn’t continue my unhealthy habits and allow her to think this was how she should live her life too so I followed a long road to health and now at almost 40 years old, I tell you with full confidence that maintaining my shape is a cinch.

Now, I eat foods that I love and workout because I love it and it is truly something I enjoy- it is no longer a burden.”

The Momshell Method

“I turned this lifestyle into the “Momshell Method.” I coach other busy women (not just moms) and teach them the same healthy habits. In turn, they can achieve their goal body. It helps them stop unhealthy and obsessive behaviors that do not help in living a fit and healthy lifestyle.

If it looks easy now, it’s because it became that way out of habit. I don’t panic over upcoming social occasions. For photoshoot prep, I don’t diet, and I don’t look in the mirror wanting to change everything. 

If your quest to lose weight is stressing you out- STOP! You’re likely doing more harm than good!

The bottom line: Motivation comes and goes. Junk food and treats will always be there. The freedom of not having to obsess over every meal and workout has given me so much valuable time to spend doing the things that I love.”

Let’s talk about self love and confidence first.  I think this is something we all struggle with, no matter the size, color, age, etc.  When we look on Instagram and see all the filters most are using, it’s hard not to compare.

“I was introduced to Momshells at a point in my life where I felt like I lost myself. I was a new working mama with my first child and I didn’t know how to make myself a priority or find the time to be the best version of ME. Gillian’s expertise, support, accountability inside the Momshells community and love helped me find myself again and realize there’s no better investment tan making my own health a priority! Momshells changed my life in ways I will forever be grateful!”

A testimonial from Ali, a client of Boudoir by Tracy Lynn.

“After my initial meeting with Tracy, I KNEW she would be the photographer I would choose for my boudoir photo session. Tracy has a calm, reassuring aura about her that instantly put me at ease. Tracy produced beautiful work. She personifies professionalism. I am extremely grateful for Tracy and her talent. She captured me in ways I hadn’t seen myself before. It has done wonders for my self confidence. After my photo shoot with Tracy, I left her studio feeling BEAUTIFUL AND CONFIDENT- two words that I never thought I’d use to describe myself.

Femme Fit– Fitness and Nutrition Designed Just for Women!

Femme Fit–Empowering Women in the STL Community and Beyond

As a boudoir photographer, it’s my mission to empower women while helping them to feel sexy and feel their best selves. I love learning about and aligning myself with other local women who have the same calling. I’m excited to introduce you to Dr. Savanna Ray and her personal online training program designed for women, Femme Fit! Femme Fit is a nutrition and workout program designed specifically for women to build bodies they feel great about. And what’s so great about this program is that the workouts are developed on an app. You can do the workouts anywhere!

Maddie Moore’s Fitness Journey

Boudoir by Tracy Lynn’s friend and blogger extraordinaire, Maddie Moore from There’s Moore to it, has been working out with Savanna and her husband, Marshall, for several months and loves them. While Maddie works with them in person, she talks more about Femme Fit and accessing this awesome fitness and nutrition programming virtually on her blog. Maddie started her fitness journey several months ago. You can see photos from our fitness photo session throughout this post! Her hard work has paid off!

The Making of Femme Fitness– It’s Science!

What is so great about this program is that Dr. Savanna Ray and her husband, Marshall Ray, founder of Faster Fitness, combined their collective expertise to develop Femme Fit into the fabulously comprehensive program that it is today. Savanna has an incredible mastery of all things anatomy and physiology. She’s a pharmacist with eight plus years experience studying the human body at the doctoral level. She and Marshall collaborated to realize Savanna’s passion of helping women gain confidence and build bodies they feel great about. While Savanna knows all things anatomy and physiology, her husband Marshall is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and a Certified Precision Nutrition Coach, which makes these two a scientific knowledge power-house. Thus we have the perfect match to bring this dream to life! After working diligently for five years, their app and program are live! They recently launched to support women ready to transform their bodies and build confidence (and nice booties).

The Femme Fit Family

While Faster Fitness is a brick and mortar fitness studio in Brentwood, Femme Fit provides intentional workouts that you can do at your local gym or at a home gym anywhere. The workouts are fun and Savanna is on the app showing you exactly how to do the exercise! Along with the engaging workouts and encouragement on the app, Femme Fit gals also get custom meal plans with recipes and grocery lists. There’s a third aspect of the Femme Fit program that I think is awesome– community and accountability! Once you’re in the Femme Fit family, you are in it and connected with other women for support and guidance from the coaches!

Holiday Healthy Eating Tips

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It’s the holiday season which means lots of fun, family and friend time, and delicious food. While it’s such a great time of year, it can admittedly be a bit stressful. Maybe we have decent habits throughout the year that all seem to come to a screeching halt as soon as the mashed potatoes come out or that decadent cheeseball and crackers come in plain sight. This is exactly why I want to share with you some holiday healthy eating tips from local expert, Gillian Becker.

Gillian’s Holiday Healthy Eating Tips

There are so many things I love about Gillian. She understands how bodies work and is all about helping you be strong, healthy, and feeling your best. I also love that she’s realistic– it’s not about starving yourself– you deserve to eat foods you love while respecting your health and your body. Here is some excellent advice for how to handle the holidays without stressing out.

Before the Party

  • Exercise the day of your event.
  • Bring a healthy dish with you to serve to guests at your holiday parties (fresh veggie platter, large mixed green salad, Cauliflower Fauxtatoes).
  • Eat a high protein snack with a small portion of fat and carbs before your event so that you don’t overeat when you get there. A good pre-party snack is a handful of almonds and a serving of nonfat Greek yogurt.

At the Party

  • Choose a smaller plate at the buffet tables at holiday events.
  • For every alcoholic beverage that you drink, drink one large glass of ice water.

You can still indulge…a little

    • Don’t fret over enjoying your favorite holiday indulgences but keep your portion size small. Remind yourself that it’s just as satisfying to have a few bites of your favorite holiday foods rather a large plateful.
    • Be a food snob! Don’t feel that it is your responsibility to sample every item at the Christmas buffet table. Enjoy small portions of the foods you truly enjoy and skip those that don’t appeal or that you can live without.
    • Remember that holiday events are all about the company you share the season with, not the food☺

The Next Day

      • Get back on track the day after your holiday event. Start the day with a green smoothie (handful of fresh spinach, handful of fresh Kale, juice of one lemon, 1 scoop vanilla whey protein, 1 pear, 2 tbsp nonfat Greek yogurt, filtered water).

For More Inspiration

You can still enjoy yourself without feeling guilty or totally derailing your body. And you’ll feel better! If you’re interested in connecting with Gillian, email her at beckerbuiltbodies@gmail.com. And for more advice, check out her Instagram.

Favorite STL Vendors– Part 1

In today’s economy, in a sea of large businesses, there’s a surge of local, small business and entrepreneurs coming to the scene. Not to get too much into economics here, but these big shops can lower their prices due to the large volume of products and services they produce. Even so, it’s so important to shop local STL to experience the unique services and products small business can offer!

Shop Local–

There are at least two advantages to shopping locally at small businesses. First, just because the prices are cheaper does not ensure the quality of the product or service. When you frequent a small business, you are the priority! You can get more personalized service and the owners are passionate for their craft or service. Second, your money, instead of trickling down a large business or corporate structure, goes directly to your preferred business owner and their community, vendors, contractors, etc. You can actually put a face to where your money is going and give your money to people you like for services and products you love! They may even have brand values that you believe in that makes your purchase even more special and meaningful. And if you love St. Louis like I do, you can support local business owners and invest back into your city!
Now that I’ve talked about why shopping local is important and advantageous to you, I want to highlight some of my favorite local vendors in St Louis. I have so many businesses that I love, the products or services and owners alike! So here is part 1 of my Shop Local STL series (because I have many more!)

1. Dr. Koo Premier Skincare

Dr. Michelle Koo is a board certified plastic surgeon and has been practicing for 23 years. She used her expertise to develop a skincare line using the finest ingredients and strives to give her clients the best skin they’ve ever felt. AND, she is totally committed to the St. Louis community! All of her products were designed, printed and fulfilled in St. Louis! Her hashtag is even #koointhelou.

I use her skincare line and it is AMAZING! I have switched from proactiv to hers and my face has done a 180. The redness/dryness/oiliness is gone, I am having fewer breakouts now than I did with proactiv. Overall my skin feels healthier. I highly recommend this, especially if you’re frustrated and tried a bunch of other products. Check out my previous post about my treatment plan to find out all about my treatment plan!

2. Savanah Summer Beauty

Savanah Moore is the beauty and the brains behind it all. She is one of St. Louis’ best hair and makeup artists and she has an extraordinary team. What’s special about Savanah Summer Beauty is that Savanah and her team do so much more than just wedding hair and makeup. Savanah offers special packages that offer all day styling for the bride so that she’s red carpet ready at all moments. When she’s not booked out for weddings, she and her team do flawless makeup, hair, and styling for special events, too. Savanah Summer Beauty also offers lash lifts that are not extensions but enhance your existing eyelashes and last 6-8 weeks!

3. Liviara

Liviara is a new lingerie company whose philosophy is to bring women edgy and luxurious lingerie to help them live unapologetically and feel sexy. Their mission of empowering women to feel beautiful and powerful really resonates with me and my business. I love the company but I also love the quality of their products and how beautiful they are. They pride themselves in the craftsmanship of their pieces as pieces are designed and sewn by skilled artisans in the US. While this brand is nationally renowned, Liviara is actually based in St. Charles, Missouri and everything is manufactured and designed locally.

I have had the pleasure of working with Liviara and shooting for them. Here you can see Vi rocking a lingerie ensemble, looking stunning as always. Liviara’s pieces are also popular and featured with some pretty big names, like Ariel Winter, Halsey, oh, and queen Beyoncé in her iconic pregnancy instagram post (the light blue panties are by liviara) This brand is high-end, artisanal, and has a great mission to help women feel their sexiest!

4. Pink Lemon Studio- Pole Dancing Fitness Studio

Locally owned and operated, Pink Lemon Studio’s mission is first and foremost to empower women to feel sexy and strong.

While Pink Lemon empowers women with fitness, there is a true artistry as they offer Aerial Arts classes like silks (when you see people hanging from silk fabric doing beautiful yogic poses), and hoops. They also offer acrobatic yoga which is so fun and a little hard to find in St. Louis. While Pink Lemon is a big deal, they are all so nice, friendly, and welcoming! I l love everyone at Pink Lemon!

Fashion, fitness, photography all go together so seamlessly. The results were exactly what I needed and they came at the right time!
