Now that Max is sitting up and eating a ton, Sienna is having so much fun with him! ๐Ÿ’™โค๏ธ For a while there was an obvious disconnect between the two of them since they couldn't engage a ton but I have a feeling they're officially on to something ๐Ÿ˜Š. #hermanos #siennakai #maxwellkoa #motherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram #siblings #futurebesties #lovethem #realmotherhood #instamoments #lifewithtwokids

Happy one month old baby Mya๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ#lifewithtwokids #toughmother #onemonthold

Last nights 30 min project ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ Obvi it was done in a 10 and 20 min session cause #lifewithtwokids means you never get 30 min to do one task ever ๐Ÿ™ˆ

In other news: this @bugaboohq buggy board (with seat) is working a TREAT: the baby has his sister to entertain him. The toddler can no longer dawdle. We don't have to deal with double buggies on London buses. We're getting everywhere at lightning speed. Well, once boobs are milked, nappies are changed, potties are potted, snacks are dished out, naps are ticked off... #motherhood #lifewithtwokids #theearlyhour

Wishing the weather wasn't so gloomy -- it's making me want to curl up in this bed instead of getting tasks accomplished ๐Ÿ™„ #lifewithtwokids #busybusybusy

Can I tell you why I'm smiling right now? โ˜บ๏ธ Because I just got a call from someone from Beachbody's corporate office THANKING ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป me for all my hard work in April and for all the work that I've done in May so far. She wanted to remind me that I am SO close to hitting a goal of being able to attend a special event at our annual Summit conference in New Orleans in July. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป A goal that I set LAST year for myself when I was at Summit. Sure I was aware of this, but how awesome is that that the corporate office called just to say THANK YOU and cheer me on!? ๐Ÿค—

The feeling of being appreciated all for simply doing what you love โค๏ธ, what doesn't feel like work, and essentially helping others FEEL better in the process... that my friends is Priceless!! Being a health and fitness coach is not effortless by any means and I'm often working around the schedules of this little guy, my (currently napping) princess ๐Ÿ‘‘, 2 dogs, and a hubby- all while trying to hold the fort down here ๐Ÿก. It's not easy, but definitely possible if you put your mind to it! It's something that I'm very dedicated to and treat as my job now even though it doesnt feel like one! ๐Ÿ˜‰

In the 10+ years that I worked in corporate America The only time I remember getting a call from the main office was to tell me what I needed to do better! ๐Ÿคฃ {NO JOKE} #canyourelate ?
I'm blown away by how amazing this company is!! And yes, I told her that I WILL hit my goal!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป

Workout Wednesday!! ๐Ÿช ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ 30 minute workout got me sweating up a storm today. 25-30 is all it takes so no more excuses that you don't have time! ๐Ÿ˜œ I see you scrolling ๐Ÿค“Facebook right now. Add up all that Facebook time and put a workout together with it!
Here let me help you get started...๐Ÿ˜Ž 3๏ธโƒฃ moves. See if you can do 2 sets of each of these without breaking a sweat

1) Choose a weight that is challenging for you (I did 10 lbs) Step back and lunge. *Make sure your knee doesn't go past the top of your foot. Do 20 of these.
2) Football ๐Ÿˆ runs. Fast feet for one full minute, jumping side to side throughout the minute

3) Burpee jumps! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ Do 20 of these. Each burpee counts as one.
I can't decide which ones I hate more.. football runs or burpees. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ณ ๐Ÿ’œHappy Wednesday!

Those of you who really know me know that I try to feed my kids pretty healthy however I'm not perfect and moderation is key ๐Ÿ”‘ with everything! People tease me all the time when it comes to my healthy ways, but believe it or not my kids still eat cookies ๐Ÿช and French fries ๐ŸŸ on occasion too despite what some may think! (And yep, I do as well ๐Ÿ˜) Kids will be kids right! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Today was one of those days where the kids won! Mom wasn't allowed to bring any food into the amusement park and I wasn't arguing with hungry kids, so chicken nuggets and fries it was! As you can see, Reese was super ecstatic about it ๐Ÿ˜

๐ŸŽก๐ŸŽ The Kiddie Park is always more fun with friends! ๐Ÿ’•

Never dreamed I would be enjoying these kind of days during the work week with my kids someday! My life was always planned around my work hours and now it's the complete opposite! Work hours are planned around my life and what works for this mama of two! โ˜บ๏ธ And when you have mutual friends who have decided that they also want to live their lives by their design๐Ÿ‘ญ, you pick a beautiful sunny day and you go out and enjoy it! ๐ŸŒค "The sooner you start planning your life the sooner you will live the life you dreamed of". - Hans Glint

Leg day!๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป The one day when you legit hate your trainer... even if it is a virtual one!! ๐Ÿ–ฅ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ’šHeart rate up to 140. Not bad for this 36 year old! ๐Ÿ˜›

Real talk ๐Ÿ—ฃ Working out isn't just for someone who has a few extra pounds to lose. My primary reason for working out isn't to fit into my pants from pre-kids (although that would be a great bonus! ๐Ÿ˜โ˜๐Ÿป). It's to keep my insides healthy and fit. I can't help but cringe when people tell me they have no weight to lose so they arent interested in working out. Eek!! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Weight doesn't always determine how healthy your body is functioning on the inside. I've seen it firsthand working in dialysis for 10 years. Diabetes and high blood pressure are a huge epidemic today and believe it or not, thin people aren't exempt! You've gotta get your Blood pumping no matter what size you are if you want to keep that body moving ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปthrough all of your adult life!! ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป

Happy 18 months to my baby girl yesterday! ๐Ÿ’ž Time has flown by and the first year was TOUGH, but I think we have finally reached my favorite age. โ˜บ๏ธ 18 months has to be the cutest stage (in my opinion) and the final calm before the terrible two storm, although some days I'm pretty sure we are already there! ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Although she has baby blues and mine are brown ๐Ÿ‘, I think we resemble each other ๐Ÿ˜‰

I showed Carter the picture of me and asked him who it was and he said "That's Reesy mom!"

Something to think about!
โ€ขAll Limited Stores closed this year โ€ข150 Sears and Kmart locations are closing this year โ€ขBebe is closing all 175 of its stores this year โ€ขJC Penney is said to close up to 140 stores and Macy's up to 68 of its stores
โ€ขPayless is said to close 400 of its stores โ€ขNeiman Marcus is up for sale after 6 straight quarters of declining sales โ€ผ๏ธThe list goes on and on! ๐Ÿ˜ถ Traditional brick-and-mortar retailers ๐Ÿซ are closing left and right. More and more people are relying on their devices ๐Ÿ“ฒ rather than their feet ๐Ÿ‘ž to buy the products they want. It only makes sense with the way society is today. Everyone is so busy that convenience is key! Online stores like Amazon will only continue to grow. โฌ†๏ธTheir online U.S. sales growth last year was more than everyone else combined and they don't own a single retail store! ๐Ÿ˜ณE-commerce is where it's at! ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป I'm glad I jumped on the bandwagon when I did! Being a Team Beachbody coach allows me to connect virtually with customers and provide support all from the comfort of my own HOME ๐Ÿก during the hours that work for me and my family and still bring in an income as a stay at home mom! It has been the best opportunity that could have crossed my path! ๐Ÿ˜ I may be working around little ones naps and sleep schedules right now, but once my kiddos are in school, my business hours will be set right around their schedules, so that I can be at all of their events and activities, be there to pick them up from school, and even take a day off whenever I want to! This company is on the cutting edge of something HUGE when it comes to delivering a lifestyle change that truly sticks! ๐Ÿค— And just announced today, we will be expanding to the U.K. This fallโ€ผ๏ธ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ This means that as a Team Beachbody Coach, I will be able to help even more people change their lives through fitness and nutrition!! ๐ŸŒŸI'm looking for some AMAZING people๐ŸŒŸ who want to change their lives and be able to build their future on their terms... work from virtually anywhere๐Ÿ˜ƒ.. and set their own hours! You must be goal driven, a self motivated person and willing to be your own boss ๐Ÿ˜‰. โฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธsee comments!

"Do not wait: the time will never be "just right". Start where you stand and work whatever tools you may have at your command and better tools will be found as you go along" - Napoleon Hill
5:15am my alarm today was ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป. He had wet the bed and also seems to now have a cold ๐Ÿคง -started the laundry
- hubby got him in the bath tub
- got the dogs fed because now they thought it was time to wake up and eat ๐Ÿ˜
-got my little guy dressed and back to bed
I could have easily gone back to bed, but instead I took advantage of quite possibly the only alone time I will have today and got to work.
There will always be an excuse (or several excuses) to hold you back. Dig deeper past the excuses and instead find your reasons to keep going. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป

When you are serious about getting serious, you meal prep ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿฅ™๐Ÿฅ‘ because 80-90% of your results come from what foods you fuel โ›ฝ๏ธ your body with!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Summer's coming โ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒˆ Wedding season ๐Ÿ‘ฐ๐Ÿป ๐ŸŽฉ
Graduation parties ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŽ“ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“ Pool ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿป and beach ๐ŸŒŠ time ๐Ÿ–. Not to mention holidays and cookouts! I'm getting on track now before all the parties and festivities can derail me. Having two little kids is no excuse to shove my hand in the bag of chips! ๐Ÿ™Š (most days that is the easiest thing to do!!) but I've got to take care of myself too! ๐Ÿ˜

Yep, I'm getting serious because I want results!! ๐Ÿ˜‰And meal prep is my key ๐Ÿ”‘ to staying on track!! You can workout ALL day long, but if you aren't getting results, take a look at your nutrition because that is probably the missing link! ๐Ÿค“

Here's the recipe for this amazing salad! ๐Ÿ“Strawberry + ๐Ÿฅ‘Avocado + Chickpea Caprese Salad
