I’m back! And with me comes the return of #ASKAMAMA Mondays!
I had some really sweet enquiries over the past few months as to when I was going to start up AAMM again, and the answer was always, “as soon as we’re all settled! And thanks for asking!”
There have been quite a few changes and adjustments made in our lives since Bubs came along, most recently being the big move into our new home. Bee started a new daycare and has finally stopped asking to go back to the “old house”. All the boxes are unpacked and everything has a place. So….
Finally. Settled. And if feels SOOOO amazing. So amazing that I decided to get back to one of the things that really made me happy, making #ASKAMAMA Mondays.
I’ve changed the format slightly: I’ll now be making little videos to introduce the Mamas as well as writing a post!
And as for the first Mama of Season 2 – as I’m calling it – I really wanted to get Bria Evenson of Bria Evenson Fitness on board. Not just because I’ve know her for forty years (actual time: 19 years….yeah, that somehow sounds longer), but because I truly believe her to be an inspiration. She’s a woman who took her destiny in her own hands and decided her calling was to help, motivate & guide countless others in becoming their best selves.
Watch the clip to learn more about Bria 🙂
Bria is open to answering any fitness & nutrition questions you may have, but can also help out with any ol’ parenting question you can think of! The whole point of this series is to ask someone outside your comfort circle for advice – an impartial third party, if you will!
Now, here are some ways you can ask Bria a question:
- Post it anywhere on social media using the hashtag #ASKAMAMA (links to my profiles above)
- Leave what’s on your mind in the comment section of this post or below the video on YouTube
- Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Fill out the trusty ol’ question form at the bottom of the page

Deadline for submissions is Sunday, March 8, and her first video will go LIVE Monday, March 16!
I couldn’t be happier to be back, guys. I can’t wait to see what you throw Bria’s way, and for what she has to say!
A bit more about Bria, in her own words:
As a mother, you realize the insane and amazing things that your body does to bring a child into this world…it is almost unbelievable. SO after my 2 children were born I really did have a deeply rooted respect for my body, and became determined to treat it with love.
But in-spite of those feelings, I was still haunted by the same insecurities each morning getting dressed. Was this really how life was….destined to be trapped by these negative self thoughts? No matter how many kilometers I ran, I still felt the same.
I FELT PEACE.
This was why I decided to become a fitness coach with Beachbody. This company, the people in it and what it created, had helped me facilitate this love for myself at last, and I KNOW I am not alone.
If you had told me that a year and a half into my journey as a coach, that not only would I get to work with INSPIRING people every day, that I would get to help other people like ME finally find that peace and love for themselves, that I would find a HEALTHY way to set a positive example for my children, and turn my struggles into a fire and a light to share with others, ALL while staying home with my family and generating income that is trending towards six figures…there is not a chance I would have believed you.
