Hi! I’m Erica and I’m so happy you’re here! Sprinkles & Sit Ups is your go-to guide for fitness, motherhood, healthy (and sweet) foodie ideas, empowerment, and fun.
I started Sprinkles & Sit Ups because I love connecting with others through fitness and healthy living. My goal is to help others live happier, healthier lives, and if I can do that with a dash of sugar and a pinch of sweat—well, that’s icing on the cake.
I love a nutritious, veggie-packed salad, but can’t resist a fresh out of the oven chocolate-chip cookie. It’s all about balance. Food is meant to be enjoyed. My nutrition approach is not about strict guidelines, but rather eating food that makes us feel good and move well. I focus on healthy eats a majority of the time, but leave room in my belly for delicious eats, which may involve chocolate 😉
I love how fitness challenges us, makes us stronger (both mentally and physically) and introduces us to new people. I’m that person at the gym who introduces themselves, takes a sweaty selfie, and gets to know everyone.
As a new momma and fitness coach my goal is to help moms feel strong, confident, and powerful in their bodies. I offer 1:1 personal training, group training, and mama movement meetups in Seattle. On the blog expect pregnancy and postpartum friendly workouts and tips, fitness challenges and events, and community.
My husband I welcomed our son Benjamin (Benji) in December 2018. We are both grateful for IVF and the support we received during our journey to parenthood. On the blog and on social media I share the ups and downs of motherhood. I offer you love, honesty, and support – it truly takes a village.
A few things you should know about me are: I entered a half-marathon a day before a race to impress my boyfriend (now my husband), my dog’s name is Macaroon (did I mention I love sweets?), and the key to my heart is through laughter, good food, and a great workout. My husband and I are proud parents to our son Benji. He loves kicking his feet (future soccer player), playing with blocks, and listening to music.
I look forward to connecting with you! 🙂
