When I woke up with a positive outlook and felt untouchable, but as the day went by I began to feel all the aches of lower back pain shoot up my spine. I know it's not going to get any easier, these weeks to come, but the closer we get the sooner I get to meet my little one. #workingmom #singlemoms  #pregnancydiary #warriormom #momlife #independentwoman #pregnacyissues #thestruggleisreal #mommypower

21 days left in 2018!! How is that goal list looking? For me...I've knocked off all but one of my small health goals, started school for my CPT, and have made quality sleep a priority. But did I do it all at the beginning? No, actually. It took me up until this fall to really get my ass in gear. I could have just said screw it and put it all on my 2019 goal list but I'm really glad I didn't. I found that drive again and stepped out of my comfort zone to dig through that list. And I'm pushing really hard to knock that last goal off before the New Year rolls in. 🙌🙌 If you have unchecked goals, don't stop working towards them just because the year is almost over. Dig in and kill it! Be a step ahead when January comes. #goaldigger #goalcrusher #goalgetter #fuelthefire #igniteyourflame #workhard #teamwarriorfitness #yearofthewarrior #warrior #iam1stphorm #1stphorm #legionofboom #mytransphormationstartstoday #fitmom #momswholift #momswhoyoga #wedothework #warriormom #duespaid #disciplineovermotivation #gooutwithabang #fallsprint #legendofthefall #doitnow #notlater

Today I am grateful that I woke up in the night suddenly remembering what I had thought to get my sister for Christmas, and was able to write it down before I forgot again!
This picture is in no way related, but ya gotta have a picture on IG 😂 
I struggle every year to figure out what to give her that she doesn’t already have, and I saw something a couple of weeks ago that basically screamed “I’m perfect for Nikki!” But then, not only did I forget what it was, I forgot I had even found something! So yes, I’m grateful my brain figured it out and woke me up in the night to write it down 😊

Have you ever heard of Kristina Kuzmic? With millions of followers, she is definitely one of the best mom influencers right now. The people we've talked about so far teach about physical health, but Kristina has a unique way of helping parents with their mental health! She's brutally honest, hilarious and refreshing while talking about parenting, mom shaming, guilt and dealing with haters. She often talks about parents being self-critical too often and how instead they should be proud of what they're doing! We love that she's using her platform to set a good example and promote love and kindness!⠀

I truly believe this notion shared by the brilliant Ina May Gaskin. Our society really needs to step-up the support and appreciation for motherhood. 
Repost from @research4moms using @RepostRegramApp - Moms are undervalued in many, many ways and it can greatly impact our mental health. It creates stress, promotes unnecessary and unrealistic expectations and overburdens women with more than a fair share of responsibility. We are life givers and that must be recognized and respected. •

Y’all Mrs. Meyers is not a good brand. There I said it. And neither is Seventh Generation, Greenworks, Honest, Burt’s Bees, Method… did I leave anyone out? 🧐I’m so saddened by people saying to me, Oh I use clean products and when I ask what they use they say one of these companies. Sigh.🤦🏽‍♀️
_________

Here’s a quick lesson in what to look for in ingredients
1. Just because something says its comes from plants or botanical, it doesn’t mean it isn’t toxic. Sodium lauryl sulfate or SLS is a toxin that is derived from coconuts BUT it becomes toxic in the manufacturing process. SLS can cause allergies, skin irritation, cancer, and neurotoxicity.

2. If you see FRAGRANCE on the label, put it back and run away. That one word FRAGRANCE can mean any of hundreds of different chemicals. There’s a reason that companies won’t tell you what goes into into the product. If you knew the same chemicals in your perfume, body wash and hand soap were also in your toilet bowl cleaner, would you still want it??🤢 3. Bleach doesn’t disinfect as well as we think and it is horrible to use in a house without proper ventilation. When you clean with bleach, do you wear a mask, open all windows and wear gloves? Yea, I didn’t either. 
__________
These are just a couple of things to look out for. We all need to start reading labels and make our dollars count. If you won’t buy poison, they won’t make it. Simple. Are you going to start reading labels? 🙋‍♀️

A "quick" 30 mins doing Insane basics followed up with a shake BEFORE brushing the teeth because having that shake right after is NEVER an option 😝.

How great is it that our God cares enough to listen to us.
.
.
I love this image, I picture my Father stopping whatever He is doing and bending down to hear what I have to say.
.
.
Who am I that the God who created EVERYTHING, would want to know how I’m feeling.....well I’ll tell you who I am.  I am His!  I am a Child if God.  And what parent doesn’t want to hear what their child is going through?
.

If you’re struggling, He is there to listen...sometimes you just have to Be Still!

We occasionally get letters or comments from parents that have seen improvements in their and/or their children’s health with REID. To help provide hope to so many still in the trenches, I’ve decided to make more of an effort to share some these comments (with their permission, of course). Many of us don’t have it all figured out, but we cling to the hope and words of progress. Everyone’s journey is different, diet changes may not reap huge changes for all, but it is absolutely helping some. Like this family, glutamate and the REID diet have been a huge piece to our puzzle.  Thank you for giving us “Ladies, I can't thank all of you enough!  After two  years battling mold illness and MCAD in DS, and stalling, we are finally able to move forward in treatment and the results are just spectacular!  The combination of Flourish and REID are giving our son back to us. He is up to 8 drops of Flourish twice a day,  and berberines, neem leaf,  garlic, oregano, thyme, and  dandelion leaves (mixed in with all the other goodies) in our green smoothies.  His remaining autism symptoms are disappearing (eye contact, social appropriateness, and brain fog), as well as his PANDAS symptoms of rigidity, OCD, and tics. 
I am beyond thrilled and wanted to share in hopes it will encourage those of you who are struggling as well as to thank those of you who helped us along!” Hear more from other parents here: https://nourishedblessings.com/hear-from-other-moms/

Common misconception: that moms have to suffer alone, that they can’t ask for help, or they have failed if they need a break.
A few ways you can ask for help:
↠ Ask your partner for help (night feeding, making dinner, laundry)
↠ Ask extended family to watch kids while you grocery shop; breaks don’t have to be that long to feel refreshing
↠ Ask a friend if you can just chat on the phone about nothing, vent, or catch up on your favorite TV show (adult time is important)
↠ Talk to your doctor/health professional (or your child’s doctor!) about anything that feels foreign to you; YOU know you best and if something feels off, isolating, or not like yourself, chances are you’re right. They can get you to the right resources (therapy, medication, local support group, other things you can do at home to help yourself)
↠ Find a therapist to talk to, whether it’s your first time or you’ve been before.
✨ Asking for help is OKAY. Remember: you can’t pour from an empty cup ✨

“Born a child and yet a King...” We sang “Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus” in church this morning and I had to stop to write some thoughts on a tithing envelope before I forgot them. Below is a summary.

As Christians, we believe that God made Himself a child on Christmas.

We speak of it as though it is commonplace. Yet, even as we feel so sure this thing happened, we think of children and adults with disabilities as intellectually inferior even though most IQ tests aren’t designed to give our kids a fighting chance. It’s like failing a bird for its inability to swim.

Why, in the absence of our own knowledge, do we presume the absence of theirs?

Are we a people who believe in miracles or are we not?

Do we believe God can make the blind see and the deaf hear and the dead rise or do we not?

Why are we accepting a hopeless future for our kids?

I believe Christmas is about God becoming a child. I believe the fullness of God came to earth in a newborn body — tiny, vulnerable. God could’ve chosen a comfortable situation for Himself. He didn’t. He chose to come in the weak, helpless body of a newborn baby. Because he has always chosen what men think weak or foolish (1 Corinthians 1:27). I believe that God came down to us.
And I believe, too, that nonverbal children can speak if God wills it. That the blind can see if God wills it. That the deaf can hear if God wills it.

Why do we only believe when we don’t “have to” believe — when it’s just a sermon about a miracle that happened a very long time ago?

God is opening my eyes to believing still. 
Hoping still.

@disneyonice is the perfect gift to give to your mom and daughter to experience a memory together. Except, for when you’re Sanfilippo and all you want to do is climb over the seats and people glare at you the entire time. I did hear sister belt out most of the @disneyfrozen songs so that was completely worth it to me even though we left at intermission.

I did hear sister belt out most of the @disneyfrozen songs so that was completely worth it to me even though we left at intermission. #weneedacure  #makingmemories  #momlife  #specialneedsmom  #warriormom  #curesanfilippo  #timeisprecious  #disneyonice  #elsa  #frozen  #raisingtinyhumans  #advocatelikeamother  #kids  #creatememories

Passion. Purpose. Dedication. Impact.
.
The influence that coaching has had on my life is almost indescribable. I signed up just to get fitter and healthier, but I found a community with a mission I could align with.
.
I had been given permission to dream and the tools to make those dreams into reality. It’s never been sugar coated. I’ve never been promised to make millions while not putting in the hard work. .
I am building my 2019 Elite coaching team TODAY. I’m looking for women and men that want to give their heart and hustle to help others improve their health and fitness, but also their overall life. .
I’m inviting YOU, yes you reading this, to take a glimpse into the life of a coach. You will hear from myself and other women on our team on what we do, how we earn an income and how our lives have changed. No commitment is needed. You can just be a fly on the wall.
.
If you have the desire to work hard and be rewarded for it, then I want you on my team. Drop me a ❤️ and I’ll get you added.
.
I’m ready to make 2019 the best year EVER! 🎉

The innocence.... It melts me. 
And terrifies me. .

At 16 he was still so nervous to see Santa. 
He thought that maybe this year he was too big to sit in his lap. 
But that didn't stop us from standing in line and giving the Big Man his list. .

What DID stop me in my tracks were the numerous adults who stared. Their eyes full of questions. A few of their mouths open like they were on the verge of saying something.... This was the first year we didn't have a smaller kid in tow. 
It's the first year it was really noticeable to other people that we were there for HIM. For Andrew. 
This has always been my fear....the day people really notice. .

But in his innocence, all he saw was Santa. 
He didn't see the looks and the questions. He saw the man who is about to make every wish come true. He saw the magic... And I melted. .

That is the meaning of Christmas to us ❤💚

This man drives me a bit crazy. We are complete opposites and that can cause some bickering. But I still love him something fierce. I’ll never give up on us, no matter what. .

There are lots of different tools and supports available for those suffering from postpartum mood disorders. You are not alone! 
Here are 6 tools for feeling understood and supported as you recover. 
1. Specialists. Ask your Dr for a list of specialists in your area. Having someone to talk to about what youre going through who actually understands about postpartum mood disorders is crutial!

2. Postpartum Support Forums. Aside from your local mom group, it can be beneficial to have a moderated place to ask your questions and get real answers from real people. It also helps to know you arent the only one on tne road to recovery. 
3. Social Media. There are TONS of postpartum mood disorder FB groups and pages. Pinterest is amazing for inspirational quotes you can print and stick to your mirror as remimders. 
4. Warrior Mom Playlist on Spotify. For those really crappy days when you need to blast some music to pick yourself up, The Warrior Mom Playlist on Spotify features two hours of music to get you through, all of which has been selected by moms who have gone though the same crappy days. 
5. Daily inspiration and hope. Lets face it, a quote or two from Pintrest just wont cut it some days. You need DAILY encouragement and remiders that you are a bad ass and can make it through. I picked up a book of daily affirmations from Chapters and read one every morning. Added to your quotes from Pinterest it could be just the boost you need when things are really tough. 
6. A couple good friends. I did my best to go for a casual coffee with one or two of my close friends every couple weeks. It helped me get out of my house (which was such a chore most days) and spend time in the presence of people who cared. If ever I was having a bad day, they were only a text or a phone call away.

It’s been a busy few days and I have failed to do my gratitude posts! Don’t worry, I’m still feeling it though 😉
So in no particular order (other than the order they’re on my phone lol), 4 pics or vids for 4 days. 
I’m grateful that despite all the weight loss/gain and feeding issues, Max has grown and developed at a completely normal pace. I’m grateful that he goes around opening all of the drawers and cabinets in every room and has made it his mission this week to walk farther and farther, turning corners and changing direction, without falling down. 
I’m grateful that my little girl, who used to love swimming but in the last year and a half had developed a fear of putting her face in the water, has made her own decision to resume swim lessons and is rocking it like nobody’s business. No tears, no fear, ends every lesson with “when will it be Saturday again?”
I’m grateful that Mia so adores her uncle and that he adores her right back. And is willing to spend his day doing whatever she asks. Cuz mama ain’t got time for that 😂 
I’m grateful that I have a healthy alternative to all the icky toxic cleaners out there, one thing to clean all the things including my rings, and I don’t have to worry when Max is all over whatever I just cleaned before it even has time to dry. 
Heart. Full. ♥️ #gratitude #grateful #dailypractice #dailygratitude #fullheart #gratefulheart

On being in “the flow”...
.
My head has been full of doubt & fear, and my body has been heavy, achy & sensitive lately.
.
My girl has been sick on and off for the longest time & my mommy instinct/empathy/intuition have all been in hyperdrive to the point of burnout in my own body.
.
Yesterday I felt blissful & relaxed during the 3 Rounding sessions at my teacher’s house (see my last post).....but exhausted & restless at the same time when I returned home. (I’ve heard this is “normal” during stress release)
.
I woke up in the middle of the night last night (my kid was playing in the bathroom) - but couldn’t fall back asleep after she did.
.
My head full of worry seemed to overflow & get very dark as everything in my mind got more and more delusional.
.
I sat up & meditated for 20 minutes around 2:30 and by 3am I was resting perfectly still and feeling at peace.
.
The words that kept coming to me were “Be in the flow”, and they kept on repeating & vibrating in my body until I fell back asleep.
.
Today I’m doing more resting - reading & feeling the comfort of that advice from source “Be in the flow.”

They wanted to buy each other a lil something for Christmas...... Last year my oldest wanted to do the same for his siblings, but this year it was both boys! So, I took em out for breakfast and a little shopping! I Think we all had enough! Talk about fun, frustrating, yelling, a lot of No's, laughter...... lots of lessons learned! As Christmas isn't just about buying gifts. Its important that they learn, it isn't about how expensive and grand a gift is. It's the time, effort,  love and thought one places in each person. But yea.... I was BEYOND done and exhausted!!!!

Story time! Podcast is up. Many new followers have joined the tribe lately, so it’ s time to tell you how I went from nothing and a struggling mom on the verge of suicide to multi millionnaire by following syncronicity. 
When you swipe 🔚 you see my current life: Flying first classs, travelling the world or spending time on our Yacht in Ibiza with my soulmate and kids, speaking from stage, getting a hybrid Luxury car as a present, flying private planes ( my soulmate is also a pilot) and recieving a price for owning one of the fastest growing companies in my country. Some of you write me and ask: “ Did you get lucky”? “ Is it your wealthy man? And NO. It’ s not. Yes he is successful and he spoils me. But I have built everything from scratch. And most people would not give the things up that I’d had to let go of to get to where I am. It had been SO freakin hard. This is exactly what my podcast is all about this week.  What I did and what you have to do to copy me. Which you can. If you are willing to let everything you are today DIE, give up safety, give up on fitting in and logic. Give up on EVERYTHING that doesn’t make you GROW. Including marriage, friends, home, approval from others. You WILL be scared and you will feel pain and you will lose a lot of what you think you are. You will have friends saying “ it can’t be done” because safety is more important than growth for most people. Biologically we search THE FAMILIAR always. Even when the familiar is financial problems, weight issues, dysfunctional relationships etc. Link in profile ( linktree under “ podcast). #healthpodcast #femaleentrepreneur #mompreneurs #empoweringwomen #feminineenergy #ninkasdetox #healingautism #warriormom #selfhealing

My latest article comes full circle for me having been through postpartum depression twice but also in raising a child with ADHD now age 9. Been writing about ADHD in kids and maternal mental health for the past several years but never together in the same article. ADHD is more than 70% inherited but a new Australian study has found a link between “hostile parenting” due to postpartum depression and ADHD in children at age 8-9. (Hostile meaning over-controlling, negative, or rigid enforcement of rules). The study found more kids with ADHD at that age had moms whose parenting abilities were compromised by postpartum depression than not. It’s not about shaming moms. We still don’t know the cause/s of ADHD (or postpartum depression for that matter) but we do know environmental stress can make things A LOT worse for a child with ADHD or a mom with postpartum depression. Needless to say, the two together without help or treatment is not a good thing. This article is yet another call to action to properly screen, assess, and treat women (and men!) for perinatal mental illnesses because if left undetected and untreated, the effects can be negative not only for the parents, but for the children as well.  #stopthecycle ~~~~ #moodymom #manicmom #moodyhood #momproblems #momgoals #momlife #momsofinstagram #mom #moms #motherhood #momstrong #momboss #momblogger #chocoholic #crazycatlady #writer #journalist #advocate #warriormom #maternalmentalhealth #maternalmhmatters #postpartumdepression #postpartumanxiety #adhd

This article is yet another call to action to properly screen, assess, and treat women (and men!) for perinatal mental illnesses because if left undetected and untreated, the effects can be negative not only for the parents, but for the children as well. #stopthecycle  ~~~~ #moodymom  #manicmom  #moodyhood  #momproblems  #momgoals  #momlife  #momsofinstagram  #mom  #moms  #motherhood  #momstrong  #momboss  #momblogger  #chocoholic  #crazycatlady  #writer  #journalist  #advocate  #warriormom  #maternalmentalhealth  #maternalmhmatters  #postpartumdepression  #postpartumanxiety  #adhd

12 years ago if you had told me that much of my day today would be spent doing yoga - meditating & drinking tea and green smoothies, I would have thrown my stiletto into your eye 🤦‍♀️😂😉.
.
But today was pretty cool & after I did my morning yoga practice at home I went to a Rounding Meditation workshop with my teacher @conscioushealthatl 💕✨.
.
I’ve been practicing Vedic Meditation almost 6 months now & I was excited to learn “Rounding”, also known as Industrial Strength Meditation.
.
It’s a systematic procedure derived from the Veda that's designed to deeply purify the mind and body. The process consists of a specific sequence of easy yoga poses (asanas), balancing breath work (pranayama), meditation, and horizontal rest.
.
Rounding encourages deep stress release (don’t we all need that) & I found it to be extremely relaxing and a little out of body! 🥰😉.
.
Life outside of practice has been super stressful lately with a chronically ill child - so I’m extra happy that learning more meditation techniques & staying on this path is part of my life! ❤️

Because sometimes you need an excuse to do your hair and makeup, even if it’s to just get a Christmas tree. 🎄 .

I got A LOT of stares this morning when I pulled out my shaker cup, measured protein, and proceeded to make protein coffee while at "breakfast with Santa". Could I have eaten what was provided (donuts, muffins, cookies)? Sure. But I have goals for this #fallsprint and the food provided was not a part of my plan. So I took the stares with grace, stayed on track, and enjoyed the morning. When you've got goals, you do whatever it takes. #savedmytreatforlater #plannedrumchata #unplannedwine #butstillontrack #goaldigger #goalcrusher #itsalifestyle #notaquickfix #teamwarriorfitness #yearofthewarrior #warrior #iam1stphorm #1stphorm #legionofboom #mytransphormationstartstoday #fitmom #momswholift #momswhoyoga #wedothework #warriormom #igniteyourflame #duespaid #neversettle #disciplineovermotivation

Sometimes in order to carry on my little warriors need to carry one another. We have survived our last two years by leaning on each other, trusting a select few pillars of hope, and laughing together. And travel ✈️. Experiencing places for the first time together has made us stronger together. When the tide rises all boats rise together. #strongertogether #mydaughterismyhero #warrior #warriormom #travelkids #travelwithkids #travelingkids #globalcitizens #singlemomtravel #leanonme #wethree #faith #carryonwarrior

So Ayden got to meet Santa today and he told him what he wanted. Not a big deal to most but such a big deal in our world. My son answered questions and smiled and told Santa what he wanted. My heart❤️😢

Has this journey been easy? Nope. Is it worth it? Heck yea! Btw Ayden wants the Peppa Pig house for Christmas, the big one. 🤣🐽

💪🏼🔷What does your gym look like? 🔷👊🏼
.
.
〰️Do you get to wear whatever you want?
. 〰️Do you have the comfort of knowing your not being judged or watched?
. 〰️Do you have a workout plan so you know what to do to get results w/out spending hours a day?
. 〰️Do you get to roll out of bed & not worry about how you’re getting there? .
〰️ MOST OF ALL Do you have someone you can trust to keep you showing up every day to push you through the hard times? 🙏🏼
.
.
🔷I get all of that in my virtual gym ☺️As you can see, I’m only using 8lb dumbbells to & still getting muscles 💪🏼 What attracted me most about BB, is the hundreds of workout plans, recipes, support and guidance it offers. Being able to do it from anywhere is just a killer bonus ✌🏼😉〰️〰️〰️you can be here to, with me! Just send me a DM & I can show you how to get set up with me coaching you through it 🤙🏼❤️
