About CoffeeMomJen

"Social media junkie who thrives on Nutella, celebrity gossip and coffee."



Thanks for stopping by, my name is Jen and I've been married for over 8 years. My hubby Scott and I have two kids and while they drive us crazy at times, we kind of think they’re the best.


Soo you’re probably thinking who is this chick? Well, to be honest, I'm a communications girl by day and a mommy, wife and blogger by night. My Twitter handle @CoffeeMomJen describes me as: a social media junkie who thrives on Nutella, celebrity gossip and coffee. Oh and I'm also Canadian-Italian.

I've had quite a few blogs over the past couple of years however this new adventure, CoffeeMomJen Gets Fit, is where I'll be sharing the ups and downs of my journey to getting fit while shedding some weight in the process. 

Visit me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest to see what I'm up to daily.

Update: Did you hear that I finally took the plunge and signed up as a Beach Body Coach? Learn more about what I do here: www.beachbodycoach.com/coffeemomjen or visit me here: www.shakeology.com/coffeemomjen

Life Lately: Back to Basics

It's been awhile since I felt inspired to write anything either on the blog, in my journal, and hell, even in Birthday/greeting cards these days. I blame stress from various sources but also a bit of laziness too.
It feels good to flex the writing muscle again, so here's what's been happening in my life lately. 
We celebrated my sister-in-laws baby shower recently and it was such a fun day! Check out her decor, she and her friends did an amazing job - the dessert and candy table was a hit!

Aaaand someone was tired from all the festivities....a cat nap was obviously needed!

Then there was that time we had a family games night. I was so tired but my hubby got major points for setting up the board games, getting a surprise dessert for the kids (DIY sundaes), and wine for me!

I enjoyed some much needed me time with my couch, comfy blanket, and a warm coffee.

I'm on a new and improved healthy eating kick and panicked a little when the family wanted to go to Boston Pizza one day f…

Friday Favourites #1: Fashion, Clean Eating, Holiday Treats & Side of Inspiration

I started my day super early this morning - not because I was working out at 5:00 a.m. getting my fitness on. Nope. Not this mom. I was up at 4:30 a.m. trying to convince my 6 year old that it was night time, not morning, and had to get his effing ass back into bed and go to sleep. It didn't work. The kid is persistent, and he's allergic to sleep. I did manage to finally break free and get my 30 minute bad-ass workout in around 6:30 a.m., and that wasn't too bad because lucky me, I have the day off from work today - so I didn't have to worry about rushing through the morning and getting to work on time. Win!

So it's 9:30 a.m. on a super cold but beautifully sunny Friday morning. I'm 3 coffees and a protein shake deep into the day already, listing to the audio version of  You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life: In Less Than 30 Minutes by Jen Sincero.  I keep hearing how important personal development is soooo I'…
