Sick on the couch today and this guy has it ALL taken care of. He mixes a mean superfood shake {give me all the vitamins}, makes a killer pb&j {hello, comfort food} and kept the kiddos not only busy, but happy.

A few years ago when I started coaching Dan was like... "what the...?!" #justbeinghonest but he knew how excited I was and so he supported me and said "go ahead..." But if I'm going to be REALLY honest, that wasn't until he said... "how much will it cost?," "is it a scam?," and "do you really think it'll work?" Here we are three years later FULL of belief {both of us}, building a part-time business that has brought in over $20,000 so far in 2018 for our family and this guy picking up the slack so I can work towards our vision and continue building my passion and today that includes working this AMAZING one day flash sale from under my blanket and prepping for my "What is Coaching?" informational group that starts tomorrow. {Ladies, the man does toilets, dishes, AND vacuums. #sorryhestaken}

All because he said "go for it." {Want to join me in either my flash sale or my coaching sneak peek just say the word. 😘} And because it takes hard work, passion, and heart Beachbody doesn't guarantee any level of income.

Get in the ladies room and reapply that red lipstick to perfection even if you’re drunk AF. Then get a man who will ruin it all 😏💋 #fuckupmylipsticknotmymascara #selfcarequeen #justbeinghonest #latepost

I feel like a Britney with this wig on 💭 what say you? Lmao, protective styling is a hoot and a half.

Feeling motivated! Legs are definitely growing. Nutrition is much better. My weakness is chips with 🍋 juice, hot sauce, lucas, and chamoy. Yes! We ALL struggle with something. Mine is #chucheria #letsgetreal #struggles #justbeinghonest #noonesperfect #motivation #legs #legsfordays #gains

BIG BROTHER TO BE...

I am so so humbled by this new journey we are on. Pregnancy is such an emotional and spiritual journey for me. It hasn’t been easy by any means and there have been days when I’ve questioned, “why are doing this again?” 😩 #justbeinghonest -
-
But through it all, God hasn’t left my side and he is giving me the strength and grace I need to make it each day. And I’m finding ways to embrace this journey instead of wishing it away. After all, we prayed for this and God answered. -
-
My Pastor preached today about going through the wilderness in order to get to the promise land. Being in the wilderness isn’t a bad thing because it means your close to your promise! THAT BLESSED ME!l and changed my perspective. Because that’s exactly where I am right now, smack dab in the middle. So if your like me feeling like the season your in is hard...just keep putting one foot in front of the other because your headed to your promise💙

P.S. I posted 2 blogs about my pregnancy journey, you can click the link in my bio to read it!

There's always one quality we require from a person and I require people to be honest with me🎈✨💞💞

*NERVOUS* 👉🏼 The pic on the left {March 2014} The pic on the right {March 2018}. ________________
.
The pic on the left I weighed 113lbs. The pic on the right... I’m not really sure - but somewhere around 130lbs.
________________
.
In December of 2013 I had a friend {and I’m using that term loosely} who asked if I hated being bigger than Stu (at the time he was just my boyfriend). I had never really compared myself to him. I didn’t really care. But suddenly it was brought to light : I was BIGGER than my boyfriend.😢 I had to do something about it. Bc if my friend noticed, the world noticed and I didn’t want to be “that” couple. I immediately felt so self-conscious. I felt big. I felt fat. I felt insecure.
________________
.
I would gauge my OWN progress based on if I could fit into my fiancé’s jeans (we got engaged Feb 2014). I wasn’t happy with my body unless I could squeeze my ass into a size 0 and I weighed less than Stu. BTW, my husband weighs 120lbs soaking wet... and he can’t help it, he literally eats like he’s 10.
________________
.
My body dysmorphia blew out of control. I thought I had outgrown that phase in my life - but I didn’t. I saw myself as something that wasn’t there. I was SO UNHEALTHY. I was unhappy. I judged myself non-stop. I was MEAN to myself. Looking back - I might’ve been 113 pounds, but I hated my body.
________________
.
Today, I purged my closet of every x-small and size 00, 0, 25. Yep! Most ppl throw out their clothes that are too big - but I purged everything that is too small. Bc I NEVER want to be that small again if I have to sacrifice my HAPPINESS. My sanity. My mental health. My ability to enjoy balance. My life.
________________
.
I will happily sit at a size 4/27 and not skip a beat. I will happily take a few extra cellulite dimples. Because a jean size and a dimple on my skin DOES NOT DEFINE ME!!!!!! ________________
.
Society has a fucked up way of defining beauty - and I’m on a mission to DEFY that! I want women to feel beautiful when they are drinking a kale smoothie, but ALSO when they are indulging in a piece of cake at their sisters wedding. .

Even if... you are still going to make it. You are still going to thrive. God is still with you. ❤

Faith was hard for me because I realized I had trust issues with everybody, including God. But He still loved me despite and continued to show me that He had my best interest in heart. So I had to change my words and way of thinking.

I think one can never go wrong by doing right. I am humbled by the opportunities that my life's path have offered. #justbeinghonest #justbeingme #justbeinggrateful

Flaws are not real!! They are just the differences between us that make us unique.....so really, we are all flawless!! ~ Allyssa Cox
God does not see flaws when he looks at us.... neither should we. 🙏 He only sees perfect creations.

I am not perfect by any means. Accepting yourself for who you are and everything about you is freeing to your soul! It can allow so much space for more goodness to come in. 🙌

I hate that I suffer from such low self esteem. I haven't felt pretty or confident in quite some time. Even these pictures, the more I look at them the more I don't like them and overthink about whether to post them. I don't believe when people compliment me, I just think they are being nice or feel obligated. I just don't see it. I see so many beautiful women and I just don't compare. I don't know what to do to make me feel better. #justbeingreal #justbeinghonest #selfesteemissues #iwanttofeelpretty #flaws #idontlikehowilook #lowselfesteem
I'll probably end up deleting this.

[Going Gone] started to attach another piece of writing to this photo but it didn't seem to fit. Wrote this super quickly instead but I gotta say I like it 😊 #poetry #instapoet #nyc #oblivion #sunset #williamsburgbridge #justbeinghonest #beauty #goinggone

Entertaining/teaching kids is alternating difficult and easy. Crossing over the separating line right out of the gate totally opens the door for them to receive whatever silliness ensues. And the sillier the better. Within reason. It’s important to still bring it. Play your best. Edit yourself. Keep it tight. Make it count. Sing like a f***in angel. And then this unified electricity builds and inspires and is like where the flame turns blue. Still, I get sooooo nervous. I don’t know why. Except I think more than anything I want it to count. What I want to show them isn’t normal. And it isn’t skyrocketing me to stardom. But Jesus man...we have to inspire them. #quasiblowhard #justbeinghonest #whereisARI #throwback #teaching #teachingmusic #musicteacher #hummingbird #singingwithkids #abbotsford #originalsong #folkmusic #singalong #onemanband #singersongwriter #ukelele #workshop #iSING #dadbod

This is the season when I want to rush God along. I want the wheel. I want to drive to where I want to go. And what is God’s response to me? Wait. Some days waiting is cool. Other days, I’m going spiritually stir crazy or pouting like my 7-year-old when I tell her she can’t have something.
Here’s what I’m learning.
1) It’s good to have a village. While in conversation with @brandingbybrandi about my plans, she asked me, “But what did God say?” Having someone to hold you accountable to your word is awesome.
2) Obedience is EVERYTHING. I don’t want to live a life that’s contrary to what God wants for me. Waiting means just that, waiting until God says Yes...no matter how hard that may be.
3) Get to the business of doing while waiting. God has given me some instructions to get certain things done while I’m waiting so I’m not just twiddling my thumbs. I become anxious whenever I stop doing what He told me to do instead of focusing on trying to rush God to say Yes. Get on task, Lady! That’s what I’ve been telling myself. This helps me to maintain my focus.
Waiting is never easy, but I don’t want my YES to be delayed. I want to be ready when God moves me. #JustBeingHonest #IDontWannaWait #ButIWillWait #GodIsInControl
