Transformation Tuesday!!! I am nearing the halfway point in my 4X/week home workout program, and I am loving it!!!! Keeping in mind that I am pregnant and not doing this to lose weight, I definitely have found this to be a godsend for keeping my energy levels up and for stabilizing my hunger and nutrition habits!
However, here are the results from Alicia (who is NOT pregnant), but who struggled with energy levels like me! And she still lost 10 lbs in 8 weeks ;) “I was a little overweight for my build, had inconsistent energy levels, and was feeling stressed from work. Now I’m feeling strong and stable, my energy is consistently up, and I feel calm and a new sense of wellness from self-care.
Overall, I’ve slimmed down and I’m more toned. My shoulders and arms have definition again and my abs are starting to pop!
Joel was instructional, motivating, and funny. He pushed us through the last few reps or seconds of hard work and kept us going. Don’t know what I’m going to do without him!
I am really happy with the results. Like the cheat day, the program timing is super sustainable. The workouts are short enough to fit into a regular day and the rest days don’t make it feel like you’re constantly pushing yourself.” Do you struggle with low energy and getting started or going to the gym? If so, message me today! This PROGRAM IS ON SALE FOR THE NEXT WEEK, so DECIDE to COMMIT TODAY!

What is your why? —————————————————
Have you ever been asked this question? Its the driving force that will keep your determination burning when you are weak. I am often asked (mostly by naysayers), “why do you share so much?” —————————————————
My why has been hard for me to express lately.
Previously, I would describe my Dads story and how my why was to give him hope and provide an example for my children. With him gone, it’s been a difficult concept for me to visit. 🌿
When my dad passed, he was doing the best I’ve seen him in years. He had a positive outlook about his ability, was loosing weight and was going to cardiac rehab. Each week, he would give me an update and would witness the positive food choices and decisions he was doing for his quality of life....so it was just hard to see the progress and all of a sudden he was gone. One night, while expressing this to my husband, he replied: “He was able to do all of that because of you...your constant encouragement and example”.
🌿
My approach was always so kind and loving with him.....with him I could be a unique kind of patient. I began to recall all of our conversations about small things he could do each day, his critical inquiries about my home workouts turning into curious questions about what he could do and the immense pride he would beam sharing a positive Doctor report. 🌿
With my husbands words, a teary realization surfaced. Thats my Why. I am going to show up no matter what, for me, for my husband, for my children.....But- if through you rolling your eyes, you find a tiny bit of inspiration- then I will continue to share the raw journey. If I can live in a way to glorify God and inspire others to better their quality of life no matter the outlook, then I will share pushing play every day. #findyourwhy #overcominggrief -

As I try and leave the house this morning with 3 teenagers and a toddler (all girls btw.. woooossaaaaahhhhhh) for appointments and new school year stuff, I have to remind myself to apply Balance tip #1 so I don’t lose my freakin’ mind. If your a mom and balance hubby, kids, and Career, you are SO undervalued and under appreciated. No one actually tells you that these things outside of your Career is actual WORK. Even if you’re a stay at home mom, it’s very rare for society to deem that a job in itself. Here are some tips to keep you from losing your sh&$. I see you. Your are appreciated! .

“Plan your work & work your plan.”⠀
~Napoleon Hill⠀

Did you realize that you become 42% more likely to achieve your goals simply by writing them down on a regular basis?

I spent my early morning hours evaluating my August goals and redirecting towards the ones I know I want complete. ⠀

This week’s primary focus is birthday preparations. My Little Miss turns 7 this weekend.⠀

Happy goal setting & goal getting! 🎉

The best decision I made was when I decided to invest in myself 👊🏽
.
Honestly, how many times in a day do we focus so much on others that we compromise our own health and wellness? 🙄
.
Maybe you are a busy stay at home mom? Maybe you are a working professional with a demanding position? Maybe you are working through multiple jobs trying to figure it out? .
I used to not focus on my own well being and I found myself fighting each day with my self esteem, anxiety and depression. 😣 But you know? I took steps each day to find a lifestyle that works for me so I can be more and give more but I was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired 😴 .
What I found through this journey is the ability to reconnect with my interests, passions, discover something new about myself and know that I am capable of so much more. It took me investing in myself to find myself ☺️
.
What are you waiting for? You can have this happen for you too. It takes one decision, consistency, and a belief so hard in your ability to succeed. Why not you? . . .

My mornings have been full, the last couple of weeks, doing FastPasses for my October travelers. After exchanging some emails with a client the last couple of days ensuring I understood just what their family desired, she wrote, “I’m glad you are making them, not me.” I told her I was so glad to be doing it for her, because I am. It’s my pleasure to serve my clients. I’m so thankful for those that support my small business and for those that entrust their vacation plans to me! In return, their vacation can be less stressful and they can focus more on the people they love! #supportsmallbusiness #traveltuesday #travelingfamily #travelprofessional #polkadotsnwishestravel #shadybranchfarm #momlife #boymom #momofboys #mommy #adoptivemom #stepmom #blendedfamily #tiredmommy #healthyliving #christianmom #youngliving #farmlife #intentionalliving #workfromhomemom #naturalliving #travelplanner #travelagent #memorymaker #heatherwrighttravel #sahm #healthymom #disney #mickey #celiac

The unfortunate reality of this poster is that unconditional love does not naturally exist in stepchild-stepparent relationships. This is not to say ‘love’ can’t exist—it can if nurtured and allowed time to develop—but it’s not automatic. Instead of getting wrapped up in what’s not happening and the feelings you’re not experiencing tend to your own mental, physical and spiritual growth. Committing to take small steps for your own wellbeing each and every day will strengthen both yourself and give you the ability to be there for others in your stepfamily if you choose. This is not a selfish act—it is a wise one that ends up benefiting everyone in the long run. #stepfamily #blendedfamily #stepmom #stepdad #successforsteps
