I had a lot of messages yesterday after I spoke about relationships on my stories.
I said “The thing I’ve learnt the most from this break up is that YOU need to be the partner you want THEM to be. You can’t expect the world of someone and not give them the world in return”
So many of us are so quick to write a list of things we want from a partner and expect so much of the ones we have.
But when was the last time you stopped and thought about what kind of partner you are/were?? To be honest with you, I was a shit partner (we both were). We had so many expectations and needs/wants of the other person and were so caught up in what the other person wasn’t doing for us that I guess neither of us stopped to think about what we were contributing to the relationship. Both = next to nothing and that’s a big reason we failed.
So my advice to you whether you’re in a relationship or want to be, think about the type of partner you are and make sure you match the expectations you have of your significant other ❤️❤️❤️. Expect the world? Give the world! #love #relationshipadvice #relationshipgoals #reflecting #reflection #learning .

Dear fellow co-parents

It's hard. I know.
It's hard because this is not what we signed up for. We didn't sign up to be part time parents and share custody of our children. We signed up to this as a full time gig and that's what makes the nights away from them so hard. We signed up to literally see them every single day. But unfortunately, that is not our reality anymore.
Us co-parents are lucky though! We have another person who loves our children just as much as we do and they still want to spend time with and be in their children's lives.
When it comes to your turn to be without your children, remember:

We are teaching them that it is ok to create amazing lives rather than sticking with one that wasn't making us happy.
We are encouraging a positive relationship with the other parent - which is so important.

And lastly, remember, we are so much more than parents and it is OKAY for us to enjoy our time when they are not here. It does not mean we don't care or that we still do not love them with all of our souls. And having fun without them does not make us bad parents.

It will always be hard and it will probably always hurt when it's time for them to go but this is our reality now and we need to make the choice to make the most of it. The only other choice is to be miserable. Do things you love doing, hustle, clean (without interuption haha), listen to your music, watch adult shows (or watch How to Train Your Dragon without your toddler, your choice haha).... Do whatever you need and want to do to keep yourself happy!
You are a part of this team too. And all of us deserve to be happy. Make the choice! #keepsmiling ❤️❤️❤️❤️ #coparenting #coparentingdoneright #coparents #coparentinglife .

Not even three weeks in to my @strongbykd 12 week program - living a healthy and active yet balanced lifestyle and I am FOUR DAYS HIVE FREE.
I can’t express how happy this makes me. I’ve literally been covered in hives for seven straight months so to wake up for four days in a row and not be itchy, hot, irritated and feeling defeated and not wanting to leave the house, I’m the happiest I’ve been in a long time.
I can’t believe how much I have gotten out of this program in such a short time and it has nothing to do with the way I look. I can’t imagine what the full 12 weeks will have me feeling like.

Thank you so much for all of your messages of love and support! It’s really motivating me every single day!! Here’s to a healthy life! 🥂 #strongbykd #dancebarrebrisbane #hives #urticaria #hivefree !!!!!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

Have you done Reformer Pilates ?? I thought it was just for fancy and flexible people but it turns out, even I can do it haha.
I’ve been with @dancebarrereformer for over a month now and I can’t tell you how much it has improved my core strength in such a short time. I get stronger and stronger and a teeny bit more flexible each time. It’s such a great addition to the @dancebarrebrisbane classes!
I can safely say I’ll be doing Reformer Pilates until I’m 80! 🙌🏼💪🏼💖 In case you didn’t know already @dancebarrereformer Offer a SEVEN DAY FREE PASS to new members 😱😱😱 - the link is in their bio!
Will you try it?? #dancebarrereformer #dancebarrebrisbane #reformerpilates #reformer #corestrength #reformerpilatesbrisbane #workingwithDBR

BABE YOU GOT THIS 💙

So I’ve just completed week TWO of my @strongbykd 12 week program with @dancebarrebrisbane .

I admit week two was no where near as good as week one nutrition wise BUT a big part of this program is facing the mental and emotional issues in your life that are holding you back from your full potential (or the real you). And it turns out I have a lot 😂 (really not funny). In saying that this week wasn’t good nutrition wise, emotional wise, it was amazing. Whilst I spent a bulk of the week crying and absolutely covered head to toe in hives while my body processed everything, I feel like I made HUGE progress.
I feel somehow lighter (hopefully weight wise too 😂) and maybe like I may have found the part of me I lost.
Katie’s program is so much more than working out and eating minimal calories like other programs I’ve seen around. This is a real program that knows real life is so much more complicated. Katie really takes the time to not only teach us how to workout and eat the right foods for our body type, but encourage us to dig deep and find out the reasons we have been holding ourselves back.
Two weeks in and I could not recommend this program more (which you can also do online) 💙💙💙💙 Find the link in my bio 💙💙💙💙 #strongbykd #dancebarrebrisbane .

Our new fave book written by our very own Instagram friend @dadpreneur Josh! It’s about a mama who loses her voice and Dad and the boys try to find it, all the while, learning lots of things along the way!
You can purchase this book at any major bookstore OR it has its very own website which you can find on @dadpreneur ‘s bio! Well worth checking out and supporting a Dad showing his boys that achieving your dreams IS POSSIBLE!! 🙌🏼 #dadpreneur #mummyhaslosthervoice .

Hopeful.

This 12 week program I’m doing is so much more than losing weight for me. It’s getting ME back (and not just the body)
The me who’s always smiling.
The me who always has energy.
The me who gets up early just to make the day longer and see the sunrise.
The me who has hope in a happy ending.
The me who is a hopeless romantic and believes in true love.
The me who wants to spend time with lots of people instead of being an introvert.
The me who is happy ❤️. I’m hopeful that I can get all aspects of me back. The banging body is just the bonus. Health is so much more than the way we look and I’m working on it all.
What’s the one thing you want to improve for yourself? ❤️ #healthylifestyle #happiness #selfimprovement .

What’s this Mama? 😂

This is @clean_ears ! The most simple way to get rid of ear wax! You don’t have to lay down, just two squirts and go! So easy and so quick! And not to mention a super safe way to remove ear wax from children (and us adults!)
CleanEars is an ear wax removal spray containing squalene (derived from olive oil), mineral oil and spearmint oil. The three main ingredients work in the following manner: �

Squalene a similar composition to ear wax but in liquid form. When it is sprayed into the ear, the squalene collides with the cerumen and through imparting its kinetic energy, it partially liquefies the ear wax.
Mineral oil irrigates the ear and removes the liquified ear wax.
Spearmint oil warms the ear canal and provides a pleasant odour. Swipe across to see how Achilles went! 👂 👂 👂 #cleanears **sponsored .

The days seem slow but those years, they’re gone in the blink of an eye and all of a sudden you can’t carry them around in the nappy bag 😩😂. Be sure to take in those little things because when you look back, they’ll be all that matter ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Question! How many photos do you have in your camera roll? I have 11,912 and I got this phone six months ago 😂🙌🏼 #memories only 1,285 selfies 😂 .

Questions! How many children do you have and how many do you want?! I have one but I want one or two more (although money permitting and of course, meeting another man 😂, I’d have even more)! To be honest I never pictured myself with children because I honestly just thought it would never happen for me but now that I’m a mum and it’s the best thing in the world, I want more babies to love!!! Especially with every second mama I’m following having their second bubbas lately omg so clucky!! ❤️❤️ #family #family #babies .
