MOST RECENT

After this cutie was born, I used to make excuses as to why I could not workout or why I could not stick to a meal plan. What I was really doing was making excuses not to take care of myself.
.
.
I used to think I didn’t have the time or energy. These excuses are not even worth making! I knew I could find the time to get in 30 minutes of exercise and I knew that I would have more energy fueling my body with the right foods!
.
.
Fast-forward to 14 months later and here I am. Working out with this kiddo by my side and sticking to a timed nutrition plan I never thought I could figure out. Do I always complete my workout without having to take breaks to care of my little man? No! Sometimes a 30 minute workout takes me an hour, but I’m okay with that because I feel better for completing something that makes me stronger and more energetic!
.
.
We all have 24 hours in a day! We can all figure out the time 🕰 to take just 30 minutes to do something for you! Something that will give you the energy and the strength!
.
.
Will you take the leap? Will you find the time and dedication? 📲 Message me if you want to join in the fun! We kick off this Monday and I still have 2 spots available! All it takes is 21 days 💪🏻

This sassy baby is 4 months old as of yesterday and it’s seriously blowing my mind!! I can’t believe it’s going by so fast. She is so talkative now, and likes to sit up with a little help! She also has started growling.....nice! 🤣She is such a smart little girl and I’m so excited to see her grow and learn. ❤️🤗 also sorry Everlee I wasn’t able to take the pictures with the stickers but we’re on vacation and I forgot to bring them 🤭 #oops #mombrain

Mood...
Took Brew to the library today for a Baby Lap Reading class. They ask you to remove your shoes. After the class ended I was outside of the building before realizing I still wasn’t wearing any shoes. Good times. #mombrain #momlife #tiredmom #redrum

Know the best way to get food storage?! Forget you already have 7 cans already and buy 4 more 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ #foodstorage #mombrain #imcallingitawin #foodstoragetip

Did you see my IG story where I had my shake vs veggie chips?
Yeah, I'm still eating the veggie chips. The kids have used every ounce of my energy today and I need a quick snack because I literally can't even make myself a meal right now. They're not ideal but also, who the heck cares? I eat right most of the time so this 20% is just fine in my books 🙌

I've come a long way from eating potato chips all day, every day. You can too.

A day late but whatever

How is my little man #6monthsold already! It feels like yesterday I was being induced and so incredibly anxious to meet you!!!

WATCH OUT WORLD 🌍

MOMMY'S FALLIN' IN LOVE WITH FITNESS!💪 😂
But realsies, I used to LOOOOOATHE working out. Even though it was kind of my "job". I would steady procrastinate on pushing play, I would not ever want to finish the entire thing, and I hated each exercise more than the last.

Now, I did it because that's what I was told to do to get results. And that's what I had to do to help others get their results. I had to slap on a smile and make believe it was all life changing and unicorns, and it was so good it would make everyone want to join me.
But the truth is that getting started sucks.
Keeping going sucks.
Doing it consistently enough so it becomes a lifestyle sucks.
I have noticed a big difference though now. It's like the negative block in my head that used to tell me to quit has been replaced with a little cheerleader. That the little magic powder I drink everyday is in that place now, kicking procrastination in the junk, telling me 'its cool baby, keep going' (yes, my inner voice is Matthew McConaughey). Ketones have flipped a switch in my brain that make even the things I once despised not so bad anymore. Must be all that extra oxygen or sumthin. 😏

To be honest, I've been kinda excited to work out these last 2 days. Not sure I've ever been able to say that. Helloooo better state of mind.

It's also interesting because I've gotten better results now- with keto//os max and little exercise- than I ever did being a workout/meal plan die-hard.
But I'm most happy to finally say I do it when I want, because I WANT to, and actually enjoy it.
No more shoving fitness where it doesn't fit. 😉

UNDER TWO - FIND THE CARS 🚘
Here you go! You asked for under 2 so let’s Throwback Thursday to sweet little Hayes at 16 months.🎉 We can thank @busytoddler for claiming this as the TABY age. 😂🙌🏼 When I think of under 2, I think 3 things. Fine motor, gross motor, sensory bins. 👈🏼 🧠Now I know some under twos are counting and beginning to recognize shapes. - That is GREAT! But what I am suggesting, is that it wouldn’t necessarily be my “focus”. 🚖I filled this canvas basket with shredded paper (shredded bills work just as well😉) and hid a couple cars inside. Thanks to @melissaanddougtoys , I already had a black box to draw a couple chalk parking spot inside. 👷🏼‍♂️Hayes dug right in! He knew he had to dig (sensory), find (hand eye coordination) and grab (fine motor) the cars. 👀If you are looking for more fine motor activities, I linked to the fine motor tab in my bio. You will find lots of ways to help improve those small hand muscles so your preschooler can be stronger at writing and cutting down the road! ✌🏻

This is not a post about my #mombod but more so about my #mombrain. 😛
.
As an athlete growing up and well into adulthood I lived to feel the burn and stay fit, it was my life. 😃
.
Since giving birth almost 11 months ago, up until now, I’ve wanted nothing to do with working out. Not one bone in my body had any desire to feel any fatigue whatsoever. None. Zip. Nada. I understand that some women go right back to their routine 6 weeks after giving birth ... but that’s not me. .
I could of forced myself to workout ...but that’s not me either. ❌
.
Allowing your body and your mind adequate time to heal is a gift you can give to yourself. Being gentle, honest and taking things day by day is what works best for me. Don’t force something that just isn’t ready. 🚫
.

As I stand here almost 11 months since giving birth I am excited to say that I am ready to feel that burn again! I miss it!! 💙🙀
.
I miss feeling strong
I miss the adrenaline rush
I miss a good muscle burn out
I miss having a toned tummy
I miss my bubble butt and my husband does too! 😊( nursing sucks the life out of me )
I miss how it feels after a good 💦 .

So, I am finally ready to feel that burn and feel strong again! Who’s with me ? .

You know when you think something is vastly overrated but haven’t experienced it in person, only to find out you were totally wrong? That’s what happened to me with this sling. One of my friends sent it to me to play with and...yeah, I want it 😭 #mywildbirdjay

We turned #4monthsold a few weeks ago, but that's OK. It's a small miracle I remember to take these this time around. #mombrain #evelynrose

After returning home from Fran’s first walk around the neighborhood, I realized I locked myself out of the house 🤦🏼‍♀️ And our garage door app is offline. And Giuseppe’s in surgery all morning. I’m a freaking genius.
