We were about 15 minutes behind schedule getting out the door and in the car for the girls yearly well visits with their pediatrician this morning, go figure. #hotmessmom
In a pinch to get everyone breakfast and out the door in a timely manner, I was all the more grateful for a nutrient dense chocolate powder I could throw together, blend, and slurp it down without sacrificing all the vitamins and superfood ingredients my body needs (especially after that muscle burning workout this morning).🙌🏼
Needless to say, we were still late, but at least I didn’t have to fill my body with junk food just to put something in my belly and get out the door. Not to mention, I am rocking my sweet new pineapple threads today. 💕

I was the epitome of a gym rat. I had no problem running on the treadmill next to the cardio bunny or being the only girl on the weight bench next to the guys. I rarely left the gym without spending an hour there first, and it wasn’t a successful visit unless my head and shirt were covered in sweat.
The only issue was, I’m a LITTLE competitive in nature, and I found myself comparing what I was doing to everyone else. “Oh, she’s running at 6.0 mph...well I am going to do 6.2!” Or I felt the need to lift heavier than her, or show the guys just what a strong woman looked like. I could beat out all the girls and hang with the guys, and I was proud of that. Until...it wasn’t enough.
I was so competitive that not only was I comparing workouts, I was starting to compare my body, especially my arms, to the other female gym rats that would hang with the guys. “Why can’t MY arms look as strong as HERS?”
When I had kids and moved my workouts to home, the only person I had to compare myself to was ME. I competed against myself, I no longer spent countless hours abusing my body, and it was INVIGORATING - I was finding my PASSION in it all again.
Don’t get me wrong, I still went head-to-head with the girls in the video, but it wasn’t exactly the same because they always did the same and I was still GROWING!
If you are spinning your wheels trying to run circles around everyone else or are constantly comparing, know that there IS another way to get your results, push yourself,and start competing with the only person that matters...YOURSELF.

Dicen que Las mujeres somos algo complicadas,pero somos el sazón del mundo 😂☺️💃 Me dirijo a las chicas; sean transparentes, auténticas, no tengan temor de ser quienes son, olvídese del q dirán; emprendan cosas nuevas para su beneficio. Y basta de competir entre nosotras mismas, todas somos hermosas, detesto ver historiales de mujeres denigrando a otras😤...hasta donde se a ninguna le pagan por eso. No exijamos respeto si aun nosotras no lo llevamos acabo.
A couple years ago I worked out everyday with one of my best friends @toni.reg and she would always track our workouts in a notebook and it was so helpful to be able to look back and see what workouts we had done before and how much weight we used. So naturally I decided I would do it too 😜 every Sunday I write out all my workouts for the whole week so that I can’t skip a day just because. So the slashes show me how many sets to do, the number next to the exercise is how many reps, and I fill in how much weight I use, or just a check mark for body weight. I look back and put the weight I plan on using ahead of time so I don’t waste time looking back while att the gym (notice the first slash on some are already filled in). Also, once I write down the weight once, I just use a check mark for the following sets unless I change the weight. If you like lists and like checking off your exercises, this is such a good way to do it! Thanks Toni for the awesome idea! @t.girlsfitness
Low quality picture↔️High quality memories
You know I don’t like to sugar coat things, so believe me when I tell you I was one of the biggest critics of being one of those online “salespeople.” I mean, who did they think they were - going on all those fancy trips, making money from home without any background in business required, smiling all the time, and talking the talk about all this and all that?
Without me even admitting it, you can already tell what the real issue was that I had with them, can’t you? I was...JEALOUS! I wanted to live that freely, be that happy go lucky, and be able to work from home or anywhere I wanted and support my family in doing so. But there was another issue I had...FEAR.
I didn’t think I could make it work. I was already working 3 different part time jobs on top of being a stay at home working Mom, my husband worked long hours and sometimes weekends, along with his writing career - where was there ever going to be time for ME to pursue MY dreams?
Thankfully, God kept placing it on my heart, telling me to go for it, to trust my gut, and that He would help me with the rest. So...I did.
I am so glad I didn’t let fear hold me back, because who knows how far I would have fell down that dark and ominous rabbit hole of depression and anxiety I would have fallen, not to mention I would have missed out on connecting and furthering relationships with all these babes right here.
Long story short, if you feel God knocking on your heart’s door about an opportunity you THINK could be amazing...trust the Big Guy and just go for it. I don’t think there is ANYONE that knows you or your needs better than Him. •

💻Un Dato muy poco conocido: .
Solo el 16% de las personas trabaja en el trabajo de sus sueños. La excusa más común es "que no tienen el tiempo ni el dinero para comenzar un negocio". Nadie a comenzado a hacer algo distinto sin tener miedo !! Pero lo hicieron de todos modos. 💪🏻 ¡Si no decides CAMBIAR, entonces las cosas siempre serán las mismas! Si te despiertas dentro de 10 años viviendo la MISMA vida, ¿serías feliz?
. ✔️Diseña una vida de la que no tengas que "escapar". Cuando encuentras propósito y pasión en lo que haces, deja de ser un "trabajo" ... 💕
Hamburguesas de pollo!!!! – Pechuga de pollo molida (500 gr.)
– 1-2 claras
– Ajo, especias al gusto
– Sal marina
– puerro, cebolla, zanahoria rallada
1. Mezcla todos los ingredientes.
2. Dale forma de hamburguesitas.
3. Se cocinan a la plancha o al horno.
*Las hamburguesas de pollo son una opción super práctica de proteína, son riquisimas, tienen bastante sabor por las verduras, no quedan nada secas, podes poner a la plancha dos hongos portobellos grandes y colocar la carne con lechuga y tomate entre esos dos hongos tipo una hamburguesa, o puedes envolver la carne en una hoja de lechuga grande, le colocas mostaza, cebolla y tomate y tienes un “lettuce wrap“. Las pueden picar en cuadros y mezclarlas con una buena ensalada, pueden comerlas en el almuerzo con granos o arroz integral y vegetales al vapor, o las pueden merendar con un puño de frutos secos y es un buen combo de merienda en la tarde, yo hago como para cuatro días y resuelve muchísimo. Tener cositas listas, prácticas saludables en la heladera siempre a tu disposición te ayuda a anticiparte a los antojos, la organización es clave, te facilita mucho la vida.
¿QUÉ ES LA “FUSIÓN EMOCIONAL”? La fusión emocional es el fenómeno por el cual madre y bebé comparten el mismo territorio emocional. Es decir que la madre vive como propias las experiencias del bebé y el bebé vive como propias todas las experiencias pasadas, presentes y futuras de la madre.
En los terrenos emocionales no hay fronteras de espacio ni de tiempo y eso que a muchas madres de bebés recientes les resulta enloquecedor es simplemente porque tratamos de pasar a una lógica racional, y no buscamos comprender desde una lógica más sutil. Sería más fácil si nos ponemos la mano en el corazón en lugar de pretender explicaciones lógicas.
No hay fronteras entre el campo emocional de la madre y el campo emocional del niño. Son como dos gotas de agua dentro del océano, no es posible identificarlas separadamente.
I bounded out of bed like a gazelle running across the plains in Africa this morning because I am so freaking excited about ALL THINGS NEW!
Truth be told, the last month or so, I have fallen back asleep most mornings, dragging my butt out of bed, not wanting to do my workouts. Funny, too, because my daughter had FINALLY started sleeping through the night!
That’s what this program is doing for me - filling me with life, giving me new goals and new women to help hit their goals, along with our newly revamped #BodyLove Bootcamps, and my energy is THROUGH THE ROOF today! [And, if you watch my IG stories, believe me when I say I hadn’t had a LICK of my beloved Mommy ☀️ Sunshine when I took this photo this morning - that goes to show my excitement level even more!]
I believe EVERY woman deserves to feel this kind of excitement and energy for her life, and if you aren’t there yet, surround yourself with women that ARE, because they WILL rub off on you! Want to get in on all the excitement with us? Message me and I may be able to cut you a last minute deal..MAYBE! 😉
Why do we let others opinions, or our assumptions of those opinions, impact our every day decision so dang much?
If I do this, will they say...
I’m not a good Mom?
I’m not putting my kids first?
I’m not doing enough as a wife?
I’m not serving others enough and being a good Christian?
I’m being too selfish or self-serving?
...and the list could go on and on, IF we let it!
As long as our hearts and heads are in the right place, who really cares? 👉🏼Every morning I workout, my girls are right there with me, watching me show them how strong a woman can be. 👉🏼When I neglect to clean the house or I don’t feel like making dinner, my husband still knows I love and care for him just as much. 👉🏼As I am building toward a full-time business to be able to help more people, I have to sacrifice some of the volunteer things I used to do, and God is definitely still my homeboy. 👉🏼While I strive for big goals that could do big things for me, yes, but ALSO allow me to help that many more women, which will in turn impact THEIR families and anyone with whom they come in contact, AND allow me to spend more quality time with my family WHILE showing my girls we ladies CAN chase our dreams.
Yeah, I think I am going to stay in this lane I am in now, because I have been in the other, and all it did was leave me feeling so DEFEATED by life. It’s sad to think how many women will never know or feel their true potential. It’s pretty awesome to be able to say I’m on a mission to see that number become less and less BY THE DAY!
Can’t wait to kick off our next virtual Bootcamp tomorrow, because nothing fires me up more than seeing strong, capable women BELIEVE they are strong AND capable! 🙌🏼 [Today is the LAST DAY if you want to run alongside us for our July Bootcamp - message me if you want IN!]
