Hey yal, I’m Tarra
I’m a married SAHM mom. I met my hubby, Brian when I was 18 years old. We had a rocky past but ended up sticking it out. We got married when I was 22 and haven’t really looked back. We have a beautiful family including us, my daughter Vivian, my son LB, and my stepdaughter Alaila. (Ages 1, 5 and 13 as I write).
One of the first things people notice about me is my hair. I was relaxed from age 12-18. I went natural in 2009. I grew my hair to bra strap length – then cut it to a TWA taper in 2012. I started growing it back out when I got pregnant with my son in 2014. I’ve dyed and cut often, but and I’m about mid back length now.
After having my son, LB – I went through a rough patch. I was a new mom, nursing, and we moved hundreds of miles to our new home in Kentucky. I turned to food and then became prediabetic and even more depressed. Then, I decided to turn to fitness. Brian is a personal trainer and strength coach so he wanted to help me – but I HATE gyms and also hate hating him when we train. I started doing at home workouts.
I ended up losing over 20 lbs. after realizing how great this program worked for me – I started doing some Beachbody coaching for extra money.
At the time I was still working in Pharma by day (I’m a chemist by degree but currently work in quality systems). I left my job in December 2017 to work as a coach from home while my husband worked on getting our family business (CSS Wellness) up and running.
Since having Vivian in March 2019 (by unmedicated vaginal birth after cesearan) I have taken a step back from Beachbody. I mainly help with trainer development at our gym but also marketing and social media.
I have a passion for fitness and hair and family so that’s what I blog about. I’m learning more about myself every day as I strive to settle into this new phase of life.
This is my life. I hope you enjoy.
