“Discipline is doing the work, even when you don’t feel like it.”
•
I’m sure you’ve seen it on other people’s posts, or felt it yourself. The whole “I just don’t FEEL LIKE working out today”. 🙄
•
That was me today.
•
I woke up too early.....
I have lots of work to get done....
I’m still a little sore from last week....
•
Yep, this is what I was saying to myself to justify skipping my workout, or saving it until later.
•
But, the newly disciplined part of me won and made me just get it done.
•
And you know what? I’m damn proud of myself! I sure as hell would not have been proud of myself if I did skip it.
•
And side note 📝:
I’M GETTING SOME SHOULDERS! 😱
•
That excites the hell out of me!
•
I want to encourage YOU to use your discipline to do your workout, or eat the healthy food instead of the crap, or not drink today, or make that call or send that email. Whatever it is you are trying to talk yourself out of instead of just doing it.
•
I’d love to hear what that is for you! Comment below and let me know. ❤️

There will be haters. 
There will be doubters. 
There will be non-believers. 
And then there will be YOU. 
PROVING only to YOURSELF..... That you CAN do hard things!!! That you are STRONG!! That you are WORTH IT!!! You know you are!!! It’s not about proving it to anyone else. 
This is about YOU vs YOU!!! Last call for my exclusive Fall Into Fitness Accountability Group. 
I’m looking for 10 people who are ready for a change.

Hanging out in the breeze way this morning waiting for work to start. My morning has felt so off because Vann has off from school today. So my morning routine has been different. But it’s gonna be a good day. Happy Monday 😁.

This is so our life except that the empty bookcase had to be moved because my monkeys climb it and jump off 😬🙈

Nothing like having to anchor every piece of furniture in your house.

These two.
I cannot get enough of them.
They frustrate me to my core.
But, one smile and my heart bursts.
One ‘I love you, mama’, and I melt.
A single arm around my neck as we read a book, and I’m forever theirs.
•
These family trips mean everything to me. They will be the memories I’ll hold on to when they want nothing to do with me.
They’re the memories they’ll have when I’m gone.
•
I can’t be more grateful for the places that exist like @lakenpines Motel that maintain a strong family friendly environment with so much to do right there on the property. Our goal for these trips is not to see as much as we can but to just be together and enjoy this time that we are so lucky to have. @lakenpines provided the perfect backdrop to another meaningful trip.

Most days I like to post pictures of my journey but today I wanted to post about this little thing I do called coaching.  When I first signed up as a coach I did it so I could receive a discount on my superfoods...let’s be real, I love coupons & saving a few bucks so coaching was ideal. Little by little I started getting the courage to try to help others feel better about themselves while I worked on my own health & fitness. But then something happened...I got comfortable. I shed my pregnancy weight & then all of my old habits crept back in. So much so that I left coaching (because I felt like a phony), stopped drinking my superfoods & got sucked back into taking care of everyone but myself. 
Cut to December of 2016 when I saw a post on IG - it was a woman who I never met. She looked amazing & she was asking if anyone wanted to join her team!  Something triggered in me & I raised my hand & said ME!  I joined the most amazing team and I haven't looked back since!! If you were given this amazing opportunity...would you squander it?  No way, man. You’d want to shout it from the rooftops because feeling this good should be contagious!

I’m looking to help 5 ladies regain control of their life! To put themselves at the top of their priority list for the first time in a long time, if ever! ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ Drop your email below if you want in!

When daddy’s away we go to The city and play! 🤣... well actually shop!

I am down 5lbs this week from following my new nutrition program and so I had to come stock up on bulk veggies and treat the kids and I to my favourite restaurant food, medbread from #moxies! Treat NOT cheat :) :) in love with my new mindset around food!

Just went live in my online information group, and can’t wait to help all these new ladies get started!

I am feeling so grateful, these three, husband comes home tonight with a surprise for the family and so many other amazing people in my life!

Have a blessed Sunday!

Sawyer’s black eye cheek bruise combo on the left side of his face is ALMOST healed and then today he falls down the stairs at the park and scrapes up the right of his face 🤦🏼‍♀️ He’s perfectly fine other than the scrapes, just spooked himself (and me). 💙 Being the mom of a fearless toddler is going to turn me into an old lady in no time 👵🏼

Visited the Ocala Pumpkin Patch this afternoon. We let the boys pick their own pumpkins 😊. .

Getting some dirt on my fingers today. I have the smallest patch of dirt ever but I try to make it work. I have never successfully grown anything in it but I try. We are hoping to move in 5 months so this shrimp plant will come with me. If I don’t kill it first, 😂. It’s been really relaxing out here too listening to the wildlife around me. It feels like a great Florida Fall day....

Saturday morning games 🏀⚾️#momlife #boymomsrule
Morning meditation, journaling and yoga session.

My quiet time before the family is up.

The first week of my Fall Into Fitness Group is complete and I am sore all over!!! This quiet time is exactly what I needed.

But I’ll be honest, it’s something that is hard for me to actually do.

Sure I can press play and do the yoga, I actually like the stretch from yoga.

But mediation and journaling?!?! That is something I really have to force myself to do.

But this is what I have come to realize.

When I don’t feel like meditating, journaling or writing down my thoughts I’m usually avoiding some kind of internal confrontation. 
Sometimes it’s easier to bury things than it is to face them. 
To just keep being busy than to slow down and sit in the uncomfortable silence.

Of course it is. 
If you don’t write it down, it’s not as real right? 
If you don’t acknowledge it, it’s not happening right?

But the more I practiced tuning in with myself and my thoughts, the better I got at understanding myself. 
I would love to say that I am st a place where I can meditate and journal everyday, but I’m so not there yet.

But I am trying to be more consistent.

This morning I put my pen to paper and I wrote whatever came to my mind. 
At first I felt a little silly. 
I mean it’s kinda being to just but your random thoughts on paper.

But the more I wrote, the less silly and more light I felt. 
Check in with yourself today. 
Even if it’s just for a few minutes.

Even if all you can manage is a few words. 
It’s not only for when you’re working through heavy stuff. 
Take five minutes or ten minutes today and just be with your thoughts.

Write down your goals, your fears, things that you are grateful for. 
Make it your safe space. ✨

Felt like a french toast kind of morning with temperatures finally in the upper 50s. Cody loved them. Vann on the other hand, not so much. He has an extreme hate for eggs 🥚, if he sees you make something with them. 🙄. It certainly limits breakfast foods in our house, lol. Picky eaters are so not fun 🤦🏻‍♀️. .
.
Oh and while I’m on that subject, Cody is refusing meat 🥩 so we make beans which Vann refuses. “Sigh”. Life with kids....wouldn’t want it any other way ❤️.

What’s for breakfast at your house?

Cooler mornings mean warm mugs!! And when I say cooler in Florida that means upper 60s/low 70s that turn into 87 degree days, lol 😂. Still wishing for cooler days but my pumpkin patch mani can help me imagine. ❤️. How did the weather feel near you today?

Be a SURVIVOR 
Be a living example of what people can go through and survive. 
Whatever you are going through now, you will get through. Never quit on yourself and always stay with a positive mindset. 
YOU ARE A BADASS!

Carter asked me, “So do I still get a baby brother?” It broke my heart. I took his face in my hands and kissed him. It’s been a struggle getting out of bed some days but I still have so many things to fight for. Lord knows I’d rather sleep in and avoid my responsibilities, but staying in a dark place sucks. My little man has been my reason to get up every day and make shit happen, and that isn’t going to stop now.

ps My boy went on Space Mountain for the first time!

My legs have been my biggest insecurity my whole life. 
I never thought they were fat, just big and muscular and not very feminine. 
In dance class I compared myself to all the other girls with long legs.

How beautiful they looked in all the poses.

I was flexible, but no matter how high I could raise my leg it never looked as picturesque as the others.

In fact, I quit dance thinking that I never could have made it as a professional ballerina because of my legs.

Who knows if that’s true or not, I walked out of that rehearsal studio a few weeks before my professional exam and never went back.

I have worked HARD over the years to see my legs differently.

To admire them for their strength instead of hating them for their size.

Hating your body is a choice!!! It’s not a requirement to being humble. 
It’s not sexy to talk down to yourself. 
It’s not inspiring to beat yourself up over your physical state. 
What makes you a total BADASS is being thankful for a body that, even with all its "imperfections", is healthy enough to take whatever you demand of it. 
You feed it junk, you beat it down, you never tell it nice things and yet, it still shows up for YOU day after day after day!!!! It has taken me years, but I now embrace my strong legs!!! Because these two legs that I hated for all of my life have taken me literally everywhere I’ve wanted to go. 
So I’ve started thanking them instead. 
And you know what???? That sure feels a hell of a lot better than cringing at every photo I see of them!!! Today I encourage you to take a look at yourself.

What is that thing you love to hate about your body??? Can we shift your focus from what you hate about it to something that it does for you?

Let’s focus on how your body gives you strength each and every day instead of how one feature may not be exactly what you want it to be!! Let’s try to speak kindly to our bodies and  love ourselves just a little more today!!!! 💕

Just a reminder that you spent weeks/months/years getting your body to the point where you were fed up and ready for change. 
Don't expect that change to happen overnight. 
Be patient, be consistent, and it WILL happen!! and as always, treat it with love while it is changing!! 💕
Just a reminder that you spent weeks/months/years getting your body to the point where you were fed up and ready for change. Don't expect that change to happen overnight. Be patient, be consistent, and it WILL happen!! and as always, treat it with love while it is changing!! 💕
Let’s just get real... my dog shit on my new carpet, my house is a frickin mess, my family is grouchy because they are all overworked and tired... I still have to make lunches and it would be fabulous if there was enough hot water left for me by the end of everyone’s showers... but let’s face it, Greg has already been in there for 20 mins 🙄.

Momming is damn near next to impossible some days and I honestly have no idea what I’m doing lol... but as long as we are crazy and lost in it together as moms, we good.... no judgment. Right mamma’s? -
One more day of school 🙌🏼🙏🏼

I believe you have to choose your battles in life. 
You have to "choose your hard."
~~~
You have to fight to do the things you set out to do. If you wait for motivation then most days you won't accomplish much. Discipline has to keep you going when motivation is nowhere to be found.
~~~
It's HARD to get up and push for your goals each day.
It's HARD to make sacrifices to reach your goals. 
It's HARD to stay disciplined when people around you aren't on the same path.

BUT.. you know what's harder? 
It's HARDER waking up in the morning and realizing time is passing by and you still don't feel your best.
It's HARDER feeling like you can't get control in your life. 
It's HARDER knowing that you can do so much more.

And THAT is what fuels me to keep going when it gets "hard."
~~~ It's just a matter of choosing which hard is easier to deal with 💪🏻 ~~~
Eating clean and moving your body everyday IS hard but being depressed, self conscious, angry, short of breath and fatigued all the time was A LOT HARDER! && that’s my secret y’all that’s the motivation you keep saying you all wished you had. It’s knowing which hard in life is easier for me to handle. 🤘#choosehappy @carldaikeler @autumncalabrese @joelfreemanfitness @breannefreeman

“Mommy, Mommy...when can we put all the Halloween decorations up!” Yells Jack as he comes home from his friends house.🎃

I have to admit I am behind on making our home complete. 🏡 We moved in our new home in July and we still have so much to do. Before, I would race around trying to make everything perfect, decorate the house and have the perfect art and pictures on the wall. I tried to be Pinterest worthy, however it never looked how I visioned it. Can anyone relate? Double tap if you do.

Friends, any ideas on Halloween decorations this year?  I desperately need your help. Comment below with some ideas or share a Instagram feed with cute pics in the comments below.🤗💓

I got to try Suave’s coconut kiss antiperspirant for free. I really enjoy the scent but it didn’t hold up to sweat. Once I was no longer sweaty, you could smell the coconut kiss scent again. This is a nice product while I take a break from my usual scent, powder.

I get up early. 
I stay up late (sometimes).
I have to record my fav shows one DVR and sometimes weeks pass before I watch them. 
It’s the hustle. 
I used to wake up to an alarm so annnoyed! Like HOW was it morning already?! Ugh. Ok. Get up. Take a shower. Get dressed and ty to look professional. Go to work and pretend the people I worked with. Sit and wait and watch the clock and countdown until I can go get something to eat...eat in my car...go back into work...super unmotivated because I’m in a carb coma, and then sit and wait until 5:00 rolls around so I can go home and spend a couple hours per day doing something for ME before I had to go do it all over again the next day. 
Hold up. 
I am 💯 confident that life is NOT meant to be like this. Not for me anyway! I am not about working my life away. I loooooove to work, but it should not take the majority of my time! We live a very short life, and what—-live, work, die?! No. Not me. Not my family. 
I’ll get up early. I’ll grind. I’ll stay up late. And in between—we will live. Together. Eat. Together. Laugh. Together. Travel. Together. 
No more eating in my car. Waiting for time to go by. Now, I want time to slow down. 💕💕

When children are learning to walk, they fall constantly. Never once does it cross their minds that maybe this isn’t for them. Maybe they should just crawl the rest of their life. They get up and try til they get it! If you’re down, know that you have the CHOICE to get back up or stay down. You got this girl!

Let’s see what you guys think...
✨
I can’t believe this babe is 9 months already! He’s going to be running before we know it! ✨
If you could bet money on it, what do you think Liam will be when he grows up?
1- A professional baseball player
2- A motivational speaker 
3- An eye lash model (Ha!)
4- In Law enforcement 
5- An entrepreneur 
Or something different? 
And yes, I have high expectations for my kids!! Hahaha... -

Half way through the first semester of nursing school and really love that we are building bonds and friendships with one another. Becoming a great support system for one another and y’all having fun learning. -
Sure nursing school is stressful and A LOT of studying but we sure know how to have fun while doing it. -
Ps we both smiled for this photo even though our mouths were covered. 🤣 #infectioncontrol

My three goofballs.  I never ever in a million years thought I would be a #boymom.  In fact after I had my first, I thought surely this next one is a girl, I mean I know there’s a 50/50 chance and all but I already had a boy! Lol 😂 
Then after we had boy #2 I just had this feeling that was this was how it was going to roll in our house. I have since embraced everything there is about having a house full of crazy boys.  Each one so different and yet similar at the same time. 😍
We have the stereotypical rough and tumble household.  We laugh, we cry (boys are VERY emotional too yo!), and sometimes (Alllllll the time) I need a mommy time out from all the intense energy! ~~~
I am so incredibly grateful for the opportunity to raise these young men. .

“I’m 150 pounds and I feel disgusting, I need to loose at least 25 pounds”

Is the message I received last week when I asked someone their goals.

Little did this woman know that I weigh 150 pounds and I feel amazing!! I wish people would stop saying that muscle weighs more than fat.

A pound of muscle still weighs a pound.

The truth is that muscle is MORE DENSE than fat.

So it takes up less space.

That’s why you can start lifting, see the scale go up, but still loose inches.

I know many of you will be shocked by the number you see here.

No one believes me when I tell them I weigh 150 pounds.

But it’s the truth.

I’m 5’ 4”. I’m not unhealthy.

I’m not overweight.

My doctor was actually incredible impressed with my fitness level and there was no mention of needing to loose 5-10 pounds.

I’ve been 125 pounds.

I know I can get there again.

But the truth is, I don’t want to.

In order to get there I would need to loose a whole lot of muscle, which doesn’t interest me in the least.

I look sick when I loose my muscle.

And I don’t ever want my daughter to see me looking sick to reach a number on the scale.

It’s a sick twisted game that scale plays with us.

I know so many women striving for some ideal number on the scale.

They don’t take into account all the other things.

They step on that scale every morning and if it’s down they have a good day, if it’s up they beat themselves up and over analyze what they ate the day before.

So many people will eat healthy all week, binge on the weekend and then feel like they need to double up on their workouts to negate the food choices they made.

Ladies, let’s stop this crazy mentality.

You cannot out exercise a bad diet.

Exercise is not a punishment for eating certain foods.

The number on the scale does not define you in any way, shape or form!!! If you are looking for a “transformation Tuesday” picture let’s start by transforming yourself each and every day.

Let’s transform the choices you make.

Let’s transform the thoughts you have about yourself.

Let’s stop being so damn focused on the number on the scale and let’s be more focused on all the healthy things we are doing!!! Sound good?!?!

It’s pretty badass to be able to watch yourself unfold and bloom over time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To watch the smile grow in your eyes.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To look back and remember how you felt and compare that to how you feel now.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But it doesn’t happen overnight. It doesn’t happen in one instant when suddenly everything makes sense, or suddenly all your problems go away.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It takes digging in every day, being intentional with your efforts to love yourself and treat yourself the way you deserve to be treated.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It takes risk, leaps of faith, and TRUST in the process and those before you who have been there too and climbed their way through to the other side.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can’t wait to see this transformation next year, in 2, 3, 4 years from now. Because I’ll never stop growing and learning and becoming my best self.✨👌🏼
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I thank the Universe every day for providing me this chance to unfold. And what’s just as cool as watching it in myself? Watching YOU unfold, too. Like honestly-there’s something so magical about watching someone go from self conscious to self confident and step into the bold badass that they REALLY are 😍💃🏼
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

How many mamas were worried that their first child would have a hard time transitioning to having a sibling? Most days he seems excited about becoming a big brother but then sometimes he says “I don’t want the baby to use (insert toy, room in the house, high chair etc) 
What was adding a second child to your family like?

A person once said... Nothing taste as good as skinny feels. 
Clearly they were out their minds and had never had Oreo Cheesecake 🤷🏼‍♀️😝 But I will say 10000% ...... Nothing tastes as good as healthy and strong feels!!!! You may have noticed I don’t talk about my weight.

I battled the scale for years.

Trying to hit a magic number.

I thought that once I hit that number I would be happy.

That I would love my body.

Turns out, even when I did reach that goal, it didn’t make me happy and when I looked in the mirror all I saw were my flaws.

Isn’t it crazy how our brains work against us sometimes?? It took me a long time to get to the point to let that number go.

To realize that it’s just a number!!! It has ZERO baring on my self worth.

It does not reflect my hard work, my fitness level or my strength.

Sure I weigh myself and I know where I am at, but I no longer wake up, step on the scale and let that number dictate how I feel about myself for the day.

I’m headed to the doctor today for a check up, and I know I will have to step on the scale there.

And the nurse and the doctor will see that number.

That used to give me crazy anxiety!! But not anymore!!! In fact, I’ll share that number with you later today.

But before I do that I would love to hear what you think I weigh.

I’m 5’ 4” if that helps 😉

Hit me up with your best guess below!!!

Take time to pause and reflect on just how far you have come!! 💕

I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember…  I have been perpetually working out and trying to lose weight for the last 25+ years of my life…. 😬
✨
And even though you see my sweaty selfies, my superfood shake, and my healthy dinners,  it is STILL a daily struggle for me.  Each and every day I have to make a conscious CHOICE to eat healthy and exercise.  Sure, it’s become a little easier over the last year… but it’s HARD.
✨
It’s really hard for me when I go out to dinner and I want an appetizer and a glass of wine and a dessert…It’s really hard for me when I see someone else eating french fries and I think “if they can eat them, then so can I”.... 🤷🏻‍♀️
✨
And it’s HARD….. because I justify it to myself and I EAT. IT. ALL….. and then I feel like crap and I tell myself that tomorrow will be better. ✨
People keep telling me how great I look.  But the reality is that I have been the EXACT SAME SIZE (I have measured) since April 23.  Sure… I’ve been working out 5-6 days a week…. I drink my Superfood Shake… I’ve conquered a couple obstacle races….. But I LOVE to eat.  And I struggle. I struggle a LOT… like very day.  I am AMAZING at maintaining my weight.  I can eat super healthy for 3 -4 days, lose a couple lbs, then eat some junk and I’m back where I started!  And this has been happening since April!  Since APRIL! 🙄
✨
I really want to lose some more weight.  But it’s hard!  And you know it!  Because it's hard for you too!  And I’m coaching other women and I’m telling them what to do, because I KNOW what to do… but currently my actions don’t match my words - and I NEED them to!
✨
What about you?  Are you struggling like I am? ✨
Let’s do this together! 👯‍♀️ I am planning to lose 15 lbs by Christmas!  What is your goal? 🤨 Do you want to give it a go with me?? We can support one another through the challenges and the triumphs! 💪🏻
Send me a message or click that link in my bio if you are ready to do this with me and finally drop some weight once and for all!  Let's end 2018 Strong!

I couldn’t let this Transformation Tuesday pass without giving a huge shout out to two people I have been working with!!!!! Allie reached out to me about a year ago to help her get ready for her big day!!! Little did I know how much Andrew would be a part of her journey and become part of our Fit Fam!! It has been my honour to help these two sweat for their wedding for the last year!!! They have been so consistent!!! They have both travelled, often times in two different places, but they have always show up!!! And to see them doing their workouts on the beach in Maui 24 hours before their big day brought such a smile to my face!!!! All would say that she had always considered herself to be fairly active and tried to make smart choices. 
She’s run 3 half marathons and she loves to spend her time in the mountains hiking and snowboarding. 
Before joining my groups she had completed several juice diets/detoxes, all in attempts to lose some weight. 
But she never saw the results she was looking for until joining my group!!! By combining exercise, nutrition, support and accountability she has not only met but exceeded her desired results!!! Because it’s not just the fitness.

It’s not just the nutrition.

It really is the combination of all 4 things together that help people see results!!! It’s been so great to go shopping for new clothes and pull clothes out of her closet she hadn’t worn in years!!! Not only has her anxiety decreased, but her energy levels have increased and are sustained throughout the day!!! One of the things that was a big eye opener for Allie is that for the first time in her life she wasn’t having the urge to snack!!! It’s because we don’t diet!!! We eat clean but we also eat foods that we like and enjoy eating. 
Watching these two tie the knot on the beach in Maui yesterday just brought it all full circle!!! Congratulations Allie and Andrew!! B

This is your story, but it’s nowhere near over! 
This lifestyle change is a lifelong journey and I am so excited for you and your new life together!!! And I cannot wait for you two to come to Winnipeg so we can finally meet in person!!!! It’s crazy you already feel like family!

Feb⏩⏩Sept. If there’s 1 thing I would tell my starting self it would be THIS: “one day you will look back and think - you did it! Of course you did girlfran! You can do hard things. It will take hard work and discipline and consistency. It will take committing to your goals and not your BS. And you are capable. As always. Duh! Idk you forget that?!

And just like that, just after 4AM this morning, our sweet Gideon has conquered 3 years of life. What an incredible journey this has been. For his birthday each year I take my monthly posts and create a book for him. Memories, ya know? When we showed it to him, he made sure we knew a book wasn't a present, lol. Maybe because it wasn't wrapped? Oh 3 year olds. Looking through his book and all of the milestones he's accomplished this year makes me emosh. Potty trained, first stitches, first wedding, first time to NY and TX, and unfortunately this year he experienced his first death in the family, grandpa.

Gideon had a wonderful birthday celebration Saturday surrounded by all of his besties. In true foodie fashion, we had our Giddy's party at The Kids' Table. These little individuals used their own little utensils to chop, squeeze and stir. They made yummy tacos, fruit art and decorated cakes. It was cuteness overload and was also a nice time to bond with the parents of Giddy's classmates.

This past month has been such a joy watching Gideon. His vocabulary is expanding so quickly, his compassion for others has deepened and his will has strengthened, ha. Some say terrible twos are nothing compared to the threes and we're getting glimpses, but choose not to acknowledge them 😉. Gideon loves his nightly time in the "museum," aka the closet. He charges admission and once tickets are collected and everyone is inside, the only light is that of a flashlight. Books are read, shadow puppets are made and laughter always ensues.

Gideon dislikes Alexa as of late. Not sure if Amazon made it so children can't always call on Alexa's name, but even when he makes a polite request to listen to his favorite, Sia, she chooses not to respond. I get how frustrating this can be.

Please join me in wishing Gideon Mitchell Kent a very happy 3rd birthday (36 months 😂)! May the Lord bless and keep you all the days of your life. We love you so very much. #3yearsold #boymom #boyswithcurls #libraseason♎️

Well good morning T Rex! This sure caught me off guard this morning!
Well good morning T Rex! This sure caught me off guard this morning!
Can I give it to you straight?

I wanted to quit on Day 1. 
It was hard!! I was out of breath.

My hips were aching.

It was still the warm up. 😳

I was convincing myself it wasn’t the right time.

Anna still wasn’t sleeping through the night.

I was exhausted.

I didn’t want to be waking up early.

I can go on. 
That first workout made me feel completely defeated. 
How had I let myself get to that point?

I had been in decent shape before kids.

And now a warm up was winding me.

I was at war in my head.

Basically negotiating my way out of this.

I knew I had to make a choice.

Continue on the way I had been going or make this change.

I decided to see it through.

Even though it was hard and I wanted to quit.

I fought through those urges and I’m so glad I did. 
Because each day I showed up I got stronger (mentally and physically)!! It gave me something for me.

I continued to show up and push through and I can’t imagine where I would be if I had quit that day.

Now I show up not only for me, but everyone in my accountability group!! Because I know what that Day 1 feels like!

And I know what Day 2 feels like, when you are sore AF and want to throw in the towel!!! I am here to show you that you can do this!!! You can overcome the urge to quit and keep going!!! You can do hard things!! If you need help getting started, accountability to yourself and to your goals, reach out and join me!!

What if..... Just this once..... You didn’t break the promise you made to yourself!!! What if..... This time.... You didn’t quit???

Oh this Cub of mine...
.
You held my heart from the start, never did I know a love so deep and as fierce as that of a mother and her child. Nor did I understand what it meant to have my heart beat outside my chest. .
I want you to know that there has been no greater blessing in this life than when God chose me to be the mother to you  and your brother. .
Son, I'm so very proud of the amazing young man you've become. Continue to dream big and reach for the stars, amazing things are coming your way ❤

I don’t always feel like pushing play.

Today it was the last thing I wanted to do!! My flight got in early this morning, I’m still on Vegas time, I have all the laundry to do and we have to get ready for turkey dinner tonight.

And honestly, the later it gets in the day the more and more excuses I seem to come up with. 
But a quick check in with my accountability group changed all that!!! How can I be the leader of the group and not show up for them or for myself??? See you later excuses!!! I headed down to the basement and pressed play so that I could give a virtual high five to everyone crushing their Day 1!!! This is my second round and I am going to give it my all!!! I’ve got last rounds weight tracker and I printed off a new one for this round.

And No, it’s not my weight on the scale I’m tracking!! It’s the weight I’m lifting!!! 💪🏼 I was soooo impressed at how my strength has improved since my last round!!! Because that’s what this is about for me!! Being strong inside and out!!! My goal isn’t to be a body builder to compete on stage. 
But it’s pretty awesome to be able to lift my 50 pound suitcase in and out of the car all by self with ease!! Now I know you’ve heard this before....... One Day or Day One - you decide!!! But really, it doesn’t matter what day it is, everyday is a good day to take care of yourself!!! Come join us on this journey of health and self love!! You may just discover that you are stronger than you think!!!! 😉

So it looks like we may be getting a hurricane Wednesday. I thought the season had passed us by but no such luck. I’m pulling together my hurricane stuff. Flashlights, batteries, a small outdoor stove, battery operated fan and candles. Also working on filling up containers of water and freezing them. Andrew always gives me a hard time about preparing for stuff like this but after Irma last year and no power or water for 5 days, I’m not taking chances. If I don’t need it, then it will be there for next time. .
