My go-to physical self care hot day treats are all about feet. I don't mean pedicures (these dancing/gardening feet need callouses and I only paint toes for special occasions). Mine are two super simple bedtime rituals. 1️⃣ I sit on the side of the tub and wash my feet, then run them under really cold water. And 2️⃣ I massage them before sleep with a little coconut oil and a drop of lavender oil. Mmmmmmm... happy feet.

•Learn to say No •
.
.
.
To survive in baby loss , it is essential to master this skill .... You can still be a kind person with a good heart and say no. .
.
Do not expect yourself to be the person you was before. This is the new you. You will be getting to know yourself for the next few years. Giving yourself timescales particularly in the early months; on when you think you'll feel better are not helpful ... (I did this and set myself up for the biggest fall of my life). .
.
When life gets complicated simplify - simply ask the question is this helping my wellbeing ? In fact just go with your gut ... you won't be any better thought of by putting yourself through hell, as people cannot see the depths of effort you go to, to mask the pain you're experiencing... does anyone else feel like a utter fake when doing this 🙋? .
.
You will lose people no matter what you do, so try and focus on a few people who understand... your energy is to important. Do not apologise for saying no and over time you will sit better with knowing that your wellbeing is the priority. .
.
Self care is not selfish it's essential ... on that note with the next few weeks off, I'll be focusing on a #summerofselfcare starting today with a dog walk, yoga and afternoon tea for my Grandma's 80th Birthday 🎉 .

What reminders do you need when you're going through a challenge?⠀

My new workout (that starts today! 🤗) has these markers to help us push harder during each workout. I KNOW this workout is going to challenge me, so I wrote some of the things I always need to hear on the markers. Y'all, I wrote myself a daily pep talk. 👏🏻⠀

What do you need to say to yourself today? Whatever it is, say it. Write yourself a pep talk. ❤

“You have such a big heart, you’re bound to have it bump a couple of things along the way. Never make it smaller so that your journey will be easier, because there might come a time when you will need the magnitude of your heart to help others in this life. No one wishes the sun to be smaller so that they can find their way west or the north star to find their way home. Be grateful for your big heart, for with each pump brings new life.” 💗💪🏼
Today I took my self-care up a notch and made some animal friends 🐰🌸🐷🍄🐮🌻🐶 #summerofselfcare #recovery

@bethechangeyoga, you bring the p(heart)y!

200 yogis brought the good vibes to Santana Row this morning. The coolest.

I did something today that I never thought I'd do - I got a spur of the moment tattoo. Today started off awful. Terrible. Rotten. The absolute worst. Now? Thanks to Gordon at @hfxtattoocompany I'm #tooradtobesad 😎 #summerofselfcare #movingon #impulsetattoo

I just ordered a new swimsuit to replace the one I've been wearing for 5 years. It recently crapped out on me and was basically falling off of me while I was trying to play in the waves. I'm excited to get it in the mail, and I'm excited to get my beach body out there in the Sun and in the ocean! I don't need to try to shrink myself in order to be worthy of being at the beach. My body, just as it is, is already worthy of being at the beach! #radicalbodylove #beachbody4all #selflove #bodypositivesummer #summerofselfcare

I made the shift today: week two, and we are on to 35 minute workouts. Woah. I look bright-eyed, but that's mainly because I survived! This workout challenged me in the best ways! I got my cardio on with a mix of 60 and 30 second agility drills. I pushed my limits and followed the Shop rule: I finished each move and didn't let each move finish me! Week 2, I'm ready! 💪🏼💪🏼 // #maketheshift #cardioday #morningsweatsesh #goodmorning #day8 #21daybootcamp #selfcare #summerofselfcare #morningfitness #shiftshop #beachbodyondemand #bodworkout #speeddrills #agility #strongwomen #strongmompf3

Day 7/21 done! My video while working out skills are horrible! I thought I would be able to show you my ninja-like athleticism but I ended up just recording my feet. 😩🤔 Anywho- it's Monday and my tip to you- is to just start! Don't wait until the first of the month or until the kids are back in school or after vacation. Just start. Start with a 30-minute walk, or a quick tabata workout or start day 1 of a new program. There's no better day than today! Whose getting started?

Alright...friends, foes...and apparently...fans?
Peace, love, harmony and sassiness. We share our lives. I'm super cool with all of that. I share my good moments, my moments of terrible depression, my amazeball lipstick, times when I'm bitchy. I'm grateful you're here to share it with me. I try really hard to make sure I respond when/if you comment. With that being said, we need to get a few things in order...I do NOT owe you anything. I am NOT required to respond to your DM. I appreciate them but I have a life and responsibilities outside of Insta. I am a Mama and THAT is my life. I will NOT give you my Snap or personal information. This and my blog are my public profiles. Other mediums are for those I would call in emergent state. If you chose not to be respectful of those things, please see yourself out.

Ok, weekend warriors, who got it in before the Saturday hustle? I was able to squeeze 25 minutes in between Moms feeding tube, the boys breakfast, a call with one of my coaches and gymnastics class. 😅

It feels good to be done but I'm already plotting out my afternoon nap. 😂

I also decided I'm a weights over cardio girl- what about you? Which do you prefer weights or cardio?

Tonight...there was just something about knowing my own power. (And wearing my color of this Summer)

Day 21 of the #Selflovingyogis July challenge ❣Self Care Activity: Make a new meal, snack, or drink
.
Just got to Lake Tahoe to camp and go to @wanderlustfest in Squaw Valley! Morning camp food is always up in the air, but usually involves torillas and something cooked in the pan. Eggs, onions, garlic, tomatoes, nopales, spam, avocado, and greens wrapped up! 👍🏽 Also made some shrimp tacos last night as well! :9

Day 5 of my program and I am upping my game! In this program we use agility markers as our 'bases' for a lot of the moves. I saw that the trainer, @chrisdowningfitness actually wrote out his intentions and affirmations on his markers to keep him motivated and focused during his workout- and if it works for him, it works for me!

So here are mine, a daily reminder of who i am and what I'm capable of. I'm all in with this program and ready for the mental and physical shift. Whose with me?

What's the number you obsess about? A jeans size? A number on the scale? A blood pressure or resting heart rate number?
Y'all, I went to the doctor yesterday. For the first time I can remember, all my numbers were lower than the year before. 🙌🏼 Inspired by my small success, I wanted to set goals for next year. I started asking my doctor what I should be shooting for in all of the above areas.

Wanna know what she told me? "Don't worry about the number." ...what??? Isn't that why my doctor gets paid so much? To worry about my numbers?? She explained that she's WAY more concerned about my lifestyle than any specific number. She told me to keep working out and focus on eating healthy. She said that when we do that, the numbers generally take care of themselves.

She told me to focus on the process...NOT the results.
So let's celebrate #feelgoodfriday today by doing just that...focus on our process and worry less about the results. Sounds like a Friday celebration to me! 🎉

Before I posted this I chickened out about 3 times.
I zoomed in to see how visible my stretch marks where.
I went through all the filters to see which made me looked more defined.
Said to myself, just post it and went for it.
This flex Friday is for my second guessers- the ones who see their flaws before their progress. The stretch marks warriors who are still trying to decide if they love or hate them. This is for everyone taking a step towards making themselves better, and to those who are brave enough to share their journey to inspire others.
If that applies to you, I'm challenging you to a flex! Take that selfie, show off your hard work and post it. It doesn't matter where you are in your journey, you are on your way. And we are rooting for you!
