Happy Saturday from my quiet little world [for the time being]. The girls are still asleep, I’ve stolen Sofie’s fuzzy Frozen blanket, my coffee is HOT, I have my sweet 10 year old cat Curri next to me . . . Happy camper right here!
She’s shy and reserved and careful. Going to her first VBS by herself as one of the smallest and youngest kiddos was a huge leap of faith for her. And she rocked it. And made new friends. I swear she grew up so much this week. I am so very proud of this brave little four year old. 💜
Self care! It's so important to take care of yourself.
Coffee in bed
Read a book
Listen to music
Get a massage
Get your nails done
Buy a new outfit
Today I watched a show I love that no one does. I took a nap. I didn't have to inhale my food because of fighting or trying to feed three others. It's the little things!
What's your favorite self care activity?
"The only limitations you will ever have are the ones you put on yourself"
30 mins of leg and HITT done. I’d have to say it’s one of my favourite workouts in this program! 50/50 first 3 rounds were all legs the last 50 of the workout was HITT . Want a glimpse of what the workout is all about check out my IG story!
Now time for my dense nutrition drink to help recover my sore muscles and with over 70 superfoods of goodness why wouldn’t I want to drink this amazing drink everyday?
“God will supply us with the opportunity, but it’s up to us to do something with it.” I ALMOST walked away from those whole coaching gig due to fear. Fear of judgment, fear of the unknown and me thinking “I could never be a part of one of those MLMs.” But I knew God laid it on my heart & instead of running from it , I listened to him. I have ladies messaging me DAILY thanking me, telling me I was sent to them, telling me to never stop. One girl even told me last night : “I’m so thankful that you friended me, I was so down and lost and really needed something that I felt like I could control. I feel like such a completely different person in just 2 short months. Physically & emotionally. I am proud of myself! And happy to have found a new friend!” Because of that....I will never stop!

Repelling! 🧗🏻♀️👊🏼 what a rush! There’s something truly exhilarating about facing your fears. When you’re scared to do something but you want to do it so you MAKE YOURSELF DO IT! 👊🏼 whatever it is in life you are working towards - you are capable of accomplishing anything you put your mind to. Don’t ever let fear hold you back 💛 📷: @reiwillis
✨21 Day Happiness Challenge✨
💕Day 9 & 10💕
My 6 things I am grateful for and WHY!
1: Coffee. After a Naples’s day yesterday, we had a sleepless night last night. Coffee will be my best friend today ☕️
2: Lush greenery around our house. While Washington state is starting to catch fire, and the smoke blows in, I am so grateful we live in a green space with a lot of natural springs. 🌲
3: The perfect pillow. You know the one that molds perfect around your head. Pure bliss. 🛏
4: Fresh raspberries off the vine. We grow them in our garden and every morning, head out for a little sweet snack. 😋
5: My electric toothbrush. I know, I know. Kind of a silly thing to devote a place on the gratitude list, but have you tried a regular toothbrush recently? 😬
6: Airplanes! Our mode of transport for the fun adventures we have taken already and the ones we will take in the future ✈️ .
🤸♀️Bring on the happiness! 🤸♀️
Just over a year ago clothes shopping wasn’t so fun. I had a closet full of things that I loved, but weren’t fitting quite right because I was still in that postpartum period. Why did I decide to have number for right before summertime 🤷🏻♀️😆 I would go into my favorite stores seeing all these fun, cute summer clothes and get frustrated trying things on cause I was still shedding baby weight and things just weren’t fitting the way they did before.
I also refused to by bigger clothes so there in lies the struggle! So what I did was allow myself a little shopping spree once I shed the baby weight. Up until then I had to make due with the few things in my closet that DID fit.
Now I go shopping and I’m like oh I love this, and this, and this. . . The problem that I have now, is that I can’t buy everything I want- Haha!
I guess what I’m trying to say, is to give yourself Grace where you are starting. No matter how you got to the point you are at, understand that you don’t have to stay there forever. Reaching your fitness goals is not an overnight thing, nor should it be. Let’s make a plan, like I did, to get you where you want to be❤️
J’ai pas le temps... 4 entraînement par semaine.
30 minutes d’entraînement.
Comme sa semaine un est terminé et j’ai samedi et dimanche pour me reposer.
J’ai vraiment aimé la combinaison de musculation, haute intervalle et abs! J’ai vraiment sentir mes muscles travailler et j’ai perdu 3 lbs dans ma première semaine. Je m’étais pourtant promis de ne pas me peser. Oops!
J’ai un deuxième groupe qui commence bientôt! Voudrais tu en faire partie? Tu aimerais plis d’info?

I feel like I was such a baby in this picture. It was our first year in Abu Dhabi. [Brunching @ Mina A'Salam]
Fast forward four years and now I have 2 babies and we are about to start our fifth year in Abu Dhabi. 😳 #crazy
So blessed for this experience and all of the personal growth it has given me. ❤️ •
Good morning! Woke up feeling great today. It’s been a while since this has happened. Falling into old habits and finding my way back has been a complete struggle for me. But remembering why I started on this journey in the first place is where that magic lies.
I admit it has been a struggle the past few months so many life changes that hit me in ways that I never though was imaginable especially since most of them where my choices that got me there.
I took a long hard look at where I was and where I want to be with the support of my husband, my girls and some really great friends I’ve found myself back on the path I was meant to be on.
I just wanted to share this part of my story because it is ok to go through things, it is ok to fall off track, it is ok to struggle. The best part about finding a group of people who understand and a community in which we have each other to lift us up and help us move through and past it is so important. I’ve gained so much strength from others in the online accountability group that I was introduced to one day by a friend. It was my game changer to find the support from others to help me see and gain the jnsite to become my true me, to follow my passions with no regrets.
It’s not easy, it’s not supposed to be. We have to go through 💩 this is how we learn and become better. This is real life it’s how we choose to go through it that makes all the difference in the world.
Today I choose me and making a difference in the lives of others. Have a great day and enjoy every moment no matter what.
Raising daughters can be an intimidating thing. It's no secret that girls look up to their mothers. The responsibility of teaching my girls how to become ladies, about the God who loves them, and how to live their life in a way that glorifies Him doesn't escape my thoughts for even a day. I want to model for them a life that is lived in devotion to God. I want them to see a woman full of selfless love and integrity. I want them to see the importance of what it truly means to be a lady in a culture that constantly demoralizes women. I don't ever want them to get swept up in the sexualized and objectified view of women that our culture deems acceptable. I want them to know that they are treasured and valued. They deserve respect and should not accept anything less. I want them to desire to serve others and be the hands and feet of Jesus to our city, our nation, and our world.
"Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised." - Proverbs 31:30
If you have a daughter, 🙋🏻♀️ below so I can pray for you in your #girlmom journey too!
#TRUTHbomb coming your way in.. 3... 2.. 1...
This past week my workouts sucked. I did them, but not at 100%. Yes I was on vacation - but that’s no excuse. I just wasn’t feeling it. I wasn’t giving my all and I honestly just don’t know what the hell my problem is.
My nutrition wasn’t bad at all - yes I indulged in some yummy boardwalk food, but I didn’t over do it.
So here I am. Being real. Being honest. And recommitting to myself.
Food shopping today. Meal prepping tomorrow. REPEATING my workouts from last week and getting my shit together.
Nobody is perfect.. we all fall down sometimes. The important part is to pick yourself back UP.

It used to be about being skinny but as I got into this lifestyle it has become so much more!!😁
I have realized that there was this amazing person inside that I have been hiding. I started just wanting to be skinny and now I want to be strong!💪🏻 I have become this woman who wants to show other women that we are amazing, strong, and can do anything!😍 .
We don’t give ourselves the credit we should. We don’t let our bodies show us just how amazing and strong they are. We put everything into our families and end up forgetting about ourselves. I became a coach to show y’all that we are more than just moms. There is that amazing strong woman inside of you! Let her out and show other women just amazing we can be!❤️
It's Saturday which means no workout (thank god... my legs are jello from yesterday's workout) and the shirt I am wearing is a Large! All in all, an amazing start to my day!
My first time back in the gym in three years! So yeah... I did take a #shamelessgymselfie .
I used to loooooove working out... but #momlife happened and then a hemorrhagic stroke happened... so I now have to be extremely careful with my workouts and not spike my blood pressure or heart rate. So a lot of lifting is sadly out of the question now. .
Having daughters, I want to be a role model for them about body positivity and loving yourself. This body grew two babies, delivered them, and then continued to nourish them long after. So I am being gentle on myself this #morning as I realize that some parts jiggle and wiggle while on the treadmill, while I am huffing and puffing along, knowing that this body may seem weak today, but it will grow stronger and it has already accomplished some pretty badass #strong woman ish. #workout#saturday#momofgirls#postpartum#breastfeeding#lift#cardio#gettingfit
