Everything we come into contact with daily has the power to ADD HEALTH or SUBTRACT IT from our body. 💄⠀ ⠀ So I look at it this way, if I have the option to take ALL OF THE GUESS WORK out of my daily personal care - from nutrition to makeup to skin care and even what I put on my baby’s bottom, why wouldn’t I? It’s honestly such a no brainer. ⠀ ⠀ 🔍 I don’t have time to dissect labels and ingredients but I do care about what I’m putting on my body & I choose where I can to make purchasing decisions surrounding that. ⠀ ⠀ How? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Buy from a company who has already done the label reading for me. Over 2000 - I repeat - 2️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ ingredients have been excluded from our product formulations because well, you already have enough toxins comin’ at ya from every direction! ⠀ ⠀ 👆🏻Swipe to see the NEWEST products launched today - we’ve taken the guess work out of for you. ⠀ 🧘🏼‍♀️ Oh my gosh what will you do with all that free time you have now because you’re not spending time researching all the phthalates, parabens and sulfates in your products?!! ⠀ ⠀ Arbonne has had these in the works for TWO YEARS - we are ahead of the game on so many levels. Mostly - you can rest assured the work has been done for you. Now - go make yourself a chai protein latte and enjoy your extra free time 😘⠀ ⠀ #gotothepark #readabook #datenight #coffeedate #theoptionsareendless #consciousliving
I feel #fresh today. There’s something about crying, having a shower, taking days off, talking things through with a parent and waking up to a white world (I’m talking about snow, calm down), that renewed my energy. .. It’s the freakin’ weekend baby, I’m about to have me some fun. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. #feelingrenewed #feelingfresh #freshlycleaned #snowinseptember #beautifulsnow #calmandcollected #happyisback #freshfeelings #happyhappyjoyjoy #fridayfriyay #doulasupport #doulas #doula #doulascare #pregnancycare #pregnancysupport #pregnancymentalhealth #postpartummentalhealth #laboursupport #labouranddelivery #edmontonalberta #albertamoms #albertamom #edmontonmoms #edmontonmom #yegmom #yegmoms #yegparenting #yegliving
Woke up to snow ❄️ and snuggly littles this morning. No complaints here. 😊 — We head out for vacation a week from today, so I’m starting to work on travel lists...packing, restaurants, activities, shops I want to visit (yes really), and whatever other random things I think about. Trying to organize everything in advance is the only way I can make sure we don’t forget anything too important! I’ve learned that the hard way. 😬 — How do you prepare for #travel , especially with kiddos? ✈️ . . . . #wellness #wellnesscoach #motherhood #nutrition #momlife #family #healthy #twinmom #twins #momlife #healthylifestyle #running #homecooking #albertamoms #healthymom #toddlermom #realfood #healthymama #alberta #canada #healthymom #healthykids #momblogger #girlmom #holisticwellness #balancedwellness
FEAR - False Evidence Appearing Real . . But maybe I won’t actually lose any weight.... But maybe I won’t like working out at home.... But maybe my family won’t want to eat healthy too.... But maybe no one will support me.... . . Then again maybe the number on the scale isn’t the only measure of health.... Then again maybe I will be more consistent because I can easily find 30 minutes in my day.... Then again maybe my family will love how they feel when we all eat better.... Then again maybe I just need to start and the support will come.... . . I have let fear of what “could be” control my choices for far to long. Fear of what may or may not happen. Fear of what other people may or may not think. BUT NO MORE!!! . . This is MY life and I’m going to rock the sh*t out of it!!!!! Who’s with me????🙋🏻‍♀️💃🏻 . . . . . #thisismylife #fear #fridayquotes #albertamoms #calgarymoms #momlife #momof2boys #boymom #sahm #wahm #busymom #hockeymom #mindset #mindsetiseverything #positivity #positivevibes #entreprenuer #investinyourself #selfcare #selflove #parenthood #honestmom #canadiangirl #family #love #truth #faith #thenextchapter #yesyoucan #progressnotperfection
It’s going to be cold + rainy here for the next few days, so naturally I felt like I should make chocolate chip cookies. 🍪 — These are different though. With a @sweetlaurelbakery recipe, there’s no need to feel one ounce of guilt, and no big sugar spike because of their wholesome ingredients. They’re made with real #maplesyrup , almond flour, and other nutrient-dense ingredients. 😀 They’re also #glutenfree and #dairyfree . — They curb the sweet treat craving and are super easy to make. I’ll post a screenshot of the recipe in my story. Try it! You won’t be sorry. 🕺🏼 — Side note: I cannot wait to visit their brand new bakery when we’re in California in 2 weeks. Is it weird if I bring my cookbook for an autograph? 🤓 . . . . #wellness #wellnesscoach #motherhood #nutrition #momlife #family #healthy #twinmom #twins #momlife #healthylifestyle #running #homecooking #albertamoms #healthymom #toddlermom #realfood #healthymama #alberta #canada #healthymom #healthykids #momblogger #girlmom #holisticwellness #thatsdarling
Output Rooftop: This 4-level rooftop patio in Brooklyn is one of the coolest places I’ve ever been. Add to it the wicked view of Manhattan in the distance, & you have yourselves one heck of a night out. The night we went was exactly how we like it - not too busy, with Fehrplay spinning up the dance floor (dance roof?🤷🏻‍♀️) Stop by if you’re in the area & there’s a show going on, you won’t regret it! ________________________________________ Output Rooftop 8/10 ________________________________________ #nyc #newyork #newyorkcity #brooklyn #manhattan #queens #yeg #jfk #outputrooftop #nycsocial #nycphotographer #nycblog #yegblog #travel #vacation #edmonton #alberta #momblog #travelblog #yegmoms #albertamoms #yegsocialmedia #photography #newyorkfashionweek #nyfashionweek #outputrooftop #fehrplay

Heading over to #Jasper later this morning to visit with one my favorite people and former colleague from when I was a teacher. I actually student taught with her! 💜 She and her husband have travelled the world and are spending this week in our neck of the woods. 🏔🏔 — Now, if I can corral the little ladies long enough to do lunch and wander through @lolejasper (likely with an 🍦🍦 bribe) we will call it a major success! 👯‍♀️ . . . . #wellness #wellnesscoach #motherhood #nutrition #momlife #family #healthy #twinmom #twins #momlife #healthylifestyle #running #homecooking #albertamoms #healthymom #toddlermom #realfood #healthymama #alberta #canada #healthymom #healthykids #momblogger #girlmom #holisticwellness #thatsdarling

Is there a thing called #WelcomeWednesday ? If not, I’m starting it now because I feel weird doing an introduction, but there are some new faces around here and I want to say welcome! Thank you for joining me and following along as I share more #nutrition and #fitness goodness, plus musings on being a mama and life with our girls. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧 — If you have any questions for me, just send them my way, but briefly, I am getting back into my work groove after being a SAHM the past 3 years. I have always enjoyed a great work out and have been “studying” nutrition since I was a teenager. 🤓 — I finally got serious about working in a way that fuels my passion and started my AFPA Nutrition Coach certification about 6 months ago. I am in the middle of my all my final testing right now and can’t wait to finish up and hit the ground running. 🏃🏻‍♀️ — Anyway, more on all that later, but thank you again for stopping by. So glad you’re here! 💗 . . . . #wellness #wellnesscoach #motherhood #nutrition #momlife #family #healthy #twinmom #twins #momlife #healthylifestyle #running #homecooking #albertamoms #healthymom #toddlermom #realfood #healthymama #alberta #canada #healthymom #healthykids #momblogger #girlmom #holisticwellness #thatsdarling
Ahoy! Pirate Pete book is a change a story book that’s interactive with the kids, they get 6 options per page to finish the story and so it changes every time! Especially perfect for a child that perhaps only has 1 book 🎁📘 etransfer to donate Christine@christinestoybox.ca and let me know if you want a tax receipt so I can add you to the list (I’ll need a little info from you) I’ll be ordering these books tonight at 8pm MST if you want to partake 🙂 Thanks in advance to everyone who helps me make Christmas special to all the kids that have suffered enough ❤️ I wouldn't be able to reach nearly as many without you! #yegmoms #yegkids #yegtoddler #yeglocal #yegbiz #shopyeg #learnthroughplay #playallday #funlearning #canadianmom #canadianmoms #albertamoms #kidstuff #toddlerlife #toddler #toddlermom #toddlerfun #babyshop #yeggers #momlife #yegbusiness #alberta #albertacanada #yycmoms #vancouvermom #vancouvermoms #kelownamom #okanaganmom
Stop making everything an ALL or NOTHING proposition for yourself! . . Why do we do this to ourselves??? Oh I ate a donut for breakfast, oh well than the rest of today I might as well eat fast food..... Oh it’s Thursday and I haven’t worked out this week, might as well wait until Monday.... Oh it’s 9pm and I haven’t read my book yet, might as well watch tv and read tomorrow.... Oh it’s October and I haven’t kept/reached any of my resolutions for 2018, might as well pack it in and try again in 2019.... . . It sounds so crazy when you read it, but truly we all have done this to ourselves. STOP trying to be perfect and just DO YOUR BEST TODAY! And for the record your best today, may look very different from your best tomorrow. . . I believe in you!!!😘 . . . . . #allornothing #stopit #showyourselfsomegrace #albertamoms #momlife #momof2boys #boymom #sahm #wahm #busymom #hockeymom #mindset #mindsetiseverything #positivity #positivevibes #entreprenuer #investinyourself #selfcare #selflove #parenthood #honestmom #canadiangirl #family #love #truth #faith #thenextchapter #yesyoucan #progressnotperfection
#Quinoa is like a blank slate. It can be flavored a ton of different ways, bakes well, goes great in a cold summer #salad , and lots more. — It’s also very high in fiber and protein, contains all 9 amino acids, is a great source of iron + vitamin B2, and is #glutenfree , which is great for those with an intolerance looking for a hearty grain. 🍽 — Tonight I tried another @simplyrealhealth recipe with this quinoa, pea & spinach bowl. So so good! It was perfect with some chicken — kiddo approved as well! 🌟 . . . . #wellness #wellnesscoach #motherhood #nutrition #momlife #family #healthy #twinmom #twins #momlife #healthylifestyle #running #homecooking #albertamoms #healthymom #toddlermom #realfood #healthymama #alberta #canada #healthymom #healthykids #momblogger #girlmom #holisticwellness #thatsdarling
Weighted blankets (and vests) are thought to have a calming effect on the nervous system, potentially benefiting those with #autism #adhd #anxiety and #insomnia . Easy to make too.

🔴Here is how you figure out your child’s maximum #backpackload :* ____________________________________________________________* ❗️10% of body weight for grades k – 8 * * ❗️15% of body weight for grades 9 – 12* ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖* 👉For example, if you’re in grade five and weigh 90 lbs multiply that by 10%. (0.10 x 90 equals 9, so your maximum load is 9 lbs.) * * Record it on the chart pictured on post.* ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖* 👉Weigh your stuff.* * ❗️Easy way: weigh your loaded pack* on your bathroom scale and record it under loaded pack.* * ❗️More accurate way: weigh each item on a kitchen scale, including your empty pack, record each item’s weight and add them up for your total loaded pack weight.* ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖* 👉Compare your maximum load to your loaded pack. * * 😱Surprised?* * 👉If you’re over, maybe it’s time to lighten your load!* ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖* TIP❗️* * 👉Always make sure you carry your backpack with both straps to keep the weight even on both sides of your body. * Slinging your pack over one shoulder puts all the weight on one side and causes you to lean under the stress.* ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖* * These guidelines are based on recommendations by the Alberta College and Association of Chiropractors* ____________________________________________________________* * * * * * * ____________________________________________________________* #yegchiro #yegchiropractor #albertachiro #yeg #drsana #drsanarobinson #stalbertchiro #stalbertchiropractor #yegwellness #yeghealing #yegschools #backpacksafety #backtoschool #packitlight #wearitright #yegkids #stalbertmoms #albertamoms #chiropractor #yegschool #healthandwellness #posturematters #situpstraight #healthtip #schooltip #momtip #yegmoms
This morning I was waiting for a friend to be done her appointment and while I sat there waiting another person was booking an appointment in the office! Turns out the computer wasn’t working and the receptionist was having a hard time booking the appointment and looked at the lady and said well this is looking like it’s gonna be a long bad day !!! - - It took one thing for this girl to already decide that today was going to be bad! - - It shocked me and it made me think how often do I do this - heck I bet we all do this! Let one tiny thing in our day ruin it completely wishing it was tomorrow !! - - Why on earth do we sell ourselves short and create such a negative mindset from one tiny thing that is so irrelevant! - - Next time one thing sets you off brush it off right away and live your day and life to the fullest !! Stop negative thoughts from creeping in and ruining any sort of chance your day has at happiness ! . . . #choosejoy #choosehappiness #momsofinstagram #momof2 #liveyourbestlife #fitmomsofig #albertamoms #acupofmotherhood #inbeautyandchaos
Sometimes we can spend so much time “looking left” and “looking right” that we don’t take time to stop and look at all of the wonderful gifts God put inside of us. You and ONLY you have the gifts that you have. So stop looking around at how much better, thinner, richer and healthier everyone else is and just start BETTING ON YOURSELF! ♠️ YOU are the only common denominator in your life. Start growing your biggest asset - YOU!
I don’t wanna!!! . . Yup typical words out of a child’s mouth.....but it’s how I feel too sometimes!😳🙋🏻‍♀️ I don’t want to eat healthy today.... I don’t want to workout today.... I don’t want to create educational activities for my kids today.... I don’t want to clean the house today (or any day!😂).... . . That’s why I need accountability partners! I need people who will boost me up when “I don’t wanna” and cheer me on when I’m crushing it!!!👊🏼💫 People who have ideas to share, who want to live their best life, and who I can support too. . . You see it’s not just about exercise. It’s about women supporting women in whatever stage of their journey they are on. 💕🙌🏻💃🏻 . . If you want accountability too, I’m just a DM away!😘 . . . . . #accountability #albertamoms #womensupportingwomen #momlife #momof2boys #boymom #sahm #wahm #busymom #hockeymom #mindset #mindsetiseverything #positivity #positivevibes #entreprenuer #investinyourself #selfcare #selflove #parenthood #honestmom #canadiangirl #family #love #truth #faith #thenextchapter #yesyoucan #progressnotperfection
Maddie’s look is similar to the one I got this morning when I asked if they wanted to share my #greensmoothie for breakfast. — They did give it a taste but then chose cereal and blackberries instead. 👌 — Today starts a 10 day breakfast smoothie challenge I’m starting for myself. After battling this cold and just feeling generally worn down a lot (like so many of us), I am taking a look at where I can make some adjustments nutrition-wise. — Starting the day with a smoothie is a great way to do that. We can get greens 🍃, protein, good fats, and nutrient-rich fruit 🍓all in one glass. A smoothie is also very friendly to our digestive systems early in the day. — I’ll post this morning’s creation in my story. It was not exactly pretty but super good. 🤓 . . . . #wellness #wellnesscoach #motherhood #nutrition #momlife #family #healthy #twinmom #twins #momlife #healthylifestyle #running #homecooking #albertamoms #healthymom #toddlermom #realfood #healthymama #alberta #canada #healthymom #healthykids #momblogger #girlmom #holisticwellness #thatsdarling

How did I get so lucky??? This handsome devil is celebrating a birthday today.

Super easy, cozy and quick dinner tonight from my favorite #cookbook . @simplyrealhealth is one of my favorites to follow because of Sarah’s mission and creative, nutritious, whole-good meals. 👌 — I made her squash and 🍏 soup tonight (swipe to take a look) and it was #fall in a bowl. Loved it! I actually used pumpkin purée instead and next time might add some crumbled sausage for a heartier meal. — Friends, check out her site sometime! I’ve learned so much and am inspired every time I read through her book. 😍 . . . . #wellness #wellnesscoach #motherhood #nutrition #momlife #family #healthy #twinmom #twins #momlife #healthylifestyle #running #homecooking #albertamoms #healthymom #toddlermom #realfood #healthymama #alberta #canada #healthymom #healthykids #momblogger #girlmom #holisticwellness #thatsdarling
I just woke up from a nap with my baby girl - going to kindergarten is tough work ! But in all honesty who doesn’t wanna get in some extra snuggles and couple more 💤 during the day ! . . Thankful to be able to do this because of a decision I made 11 months ago to step out of my comfort zone and start up a little side hustle that allows me to create my own hours , be my own boss, And help others build their own confidence while they inspire along the way ! . The amazing results I have seen , beeming smiles, texts from clients who have finally found themselves again is one of the most rewarding things I get to experience each and every day !! . . . As a coach I have met so many amazing new friends, some who I feel like I have known since high school, I have earned trips and I have created an income from HOME that has me knowing I will be able to have that FREEDOM and FLEXIBILITY to be able to be on any field trip my kids have , or be able to volunteer when I want and has helped pay off those student loans that I once spent way back in the day because why not I was 18 ,the money was there so Mays well use to right 😬 . . I have a little sneak peak happening this week about what I do helping others on their fitness and health journeys and I would absolutely love to share this with you! . . Anyone can do this -you don’t have to know much to start - you just have to start ! . . Drop me an emoji below or send me a message and let’s chat !! . . . #canadianmom #momsofig #momof2 #boymomlife #girlmomlife #canadiangirl #fitmom #lifewithlittles #lifewithtoddlers #okanaganlife #motherhoodunplugged #letthembelittle #healthyliving #workoutfromhome #workoutfromanywhere #momoftwolittles #sahmlife #mumlife #littleandbrave #momlife #theignitionmission #sahm #mompreneur #albertamoms #chaseyourdreams #momswholift #womenempoweringwomen
Since discovering he could push a chair up and reach whatever he wants in the kitchen, he’s become infatuated with the coffee maker. I’ve always caught him before anything happened.... until today 😂
If there is one person who really gets me it’s this guy ! ❤️ I am greatful each and every moment we get to spend together laughing , picking on eachother , having big conversations about our future dreams and goals for our family and yes even the times you drive me a bit crazy , or wait is that the other way around.😝 ❤️ There aren’t enough I loves you to let you know how truly blessed and greatful I am for you my handsome and thankyou for being the absolute most amazing daddy I could have every wished for for our babies!

Doing all the #Monday things today! Grocery, tumbling class, folding 5 loads of laundry. 😳 — Fighting a cold but determined to start the week with a good workout. What’s your stance on exercise while sick? I’ve always read to go for it (but take it easy) if it’s a head cold kind of thing, but experts say if it’s in your chest (wheezing or a bad cough), skip it and rest. 💆‍♀️ — Hope your week is off to a great start! 💜 . . . . #wellness #wellnesscoach #motherhood #nutrition #momlife #family #healthy #twinmom #twins #momlife #healthylifestyle #running #homecooking #albertamoms #healthymom #toddlermom #realfood #healthymama #alberta #canada #healthymom #healthykids #momblogger #girlmom #holisticwellness #thatsdarling

What a week! 🤗 Another class completed and full of #prepared parents today at @west_coast_kids Calgary South 👏🏻 Check out all of the little ones at today’s class! We love that parents feel comfortable enough to bring babes in arms (strollers and carriers lol) with them to class 👌🏼 Today was made even more special with one soon to be family who brought grandma and grandpa to be from BOTH sides of the family to class! What a tribe of supportive people they have surrounding them, it makes our hearts happy to see such engagement ❤️ Link in bio for class schedule👍🏼
Josh and I went out for a rare parents night out last night for dinner and a wine tasting with friends. So fun but so hard to leave the littles. 👯‍♀️ — I texted our babysitter about 15 minutes after we left and the girls had settled in eating 🍕and running around our living room. Anyone else feel guilty leaving kiddos for a night? It really is hard for me to do, but so important to spend time together and with friends kid-free. — I also forgot how easily red wine leads to a headache the next day. Good grief. 🤦‍♀️ #oldandfragile . . . . #wellness #wellnesscoach #motherhood #nutrition #momlife #foodie #healthy #twinmom #twins #momlife #healthylifestyle #running #homecooking #albertamoms #healthymom #toddlermom #realfood #healthymama #alberta #canada #healthymom #healthykids #momblogger #girlmom #Beautycounterconsultant #beautycountercanada
I have been so guilty of doing the easy thing in the past, but honestly the easy thing is usually not the right thing. . . Is it easy to skip my workout.... Is it easy to go through the drive thru.... Is it easy to binge watch tv every night.... Is it easy to ignore my dreams.... . . The list could go on and on. Here’s the thing, most things that are right are not easy. If they were easy everyone would be doing them. . . Have a fabulous Sunday 😘 . . . . . #albertamoms #calgarymoms #momlife #momof2boys #boymom #sahm #wahm #busymom #hockeymom #mindset #mindsetiseverything #positivity #positivevibes #entreprenuer #investinyourself #selfcare #selflove #parenthood #honestmom #canadiangirl #family #love #truth #faith #thenextchapter #yesyoucan #progressnotperfection #isitrightorisiteasy #sundaythoughts

When my husband left this week, I was a little nervous to be alone with both kids for an extended period of time 😜 Would I get enough sleep? Could I breastfeed Stevie on demand while managing to take care of Fitz? How the heck would I cook supper alone during my kids most dramatic time of day? 😂 To my surprise, this week has went by so fast and so SMOOTHLY. I feel so lucky to have these kids and I sure love these sweethearts. 💖
This week has been one for the books! I waited patiently for answers to some health issues which all came back perfectly but I still dealt with the pain and just got so frustrated as to why! . . It drug me down emotionally and mentally and got the best of my anxiety! And for those of you who struggle with anxiety you know how it can cripple you some days ! . . Thankful for my amazing Jesus who has lifted me up so many times this week and thankful to him for the ability to help me rise above! . .

Snuggled up watching Muppet Babies with my two cozy night owls. 👯‍♀️ If you’ve been following my weather updates, it started snowing again tonight. 😳 — I think our next few trips into Jasper will be a little less beach related and a lot more ski-hot cocoa related. ❄️ — I also plan to start making some cold weather meal plans - soup, casserole, slow cooker meals, etc. and will share recipes if that sounds fun? I stockpiled a bunch last year and they were super handy to have ready not only for us, but company as well. — I know back home it’s still like 85 so just save them for cooler temps! 😂 . . . . #wellness #wellnesscoach #motherhood #nutrition #momlife #foodie #healthy #twinmom #twins #momlife #healthylifestyle #running #homecooking #albertamoms #healthymom #toddlermom #realfood #healthymama #alberta #canada #healthymom #healthykids #momblogger #girlmom #Beautycounterconsultant #beautycountercanada

And yep, I’m totally okay with our girls eating the occasional happy meals (esp because they choose 🍎 over fries). — As we get into more activities and have school events, I’m going to have to get better about planning and prepping meals on the go. This is new territory for for us, so I’ll be going back to tips I’ve learned from my favorite meal planning expert @thealliepeach and sharing what works for us along the way! 💗 . . . . #wellness #wellnesscoach #motherhood #nutrition #momlife #foodie #healthy #twinmom #twins #momlife #healthylifestyle #running #homecooking #albertamoms #healthymom #toddlermom #realfood #healthymama #alberta #canada #healthymom #healthykids #momblogger #girlmom #Beautycounterconsultant #beautycountercanada

Introducing our newest class of #preparedparents 👏🏻 Shout out to our fav Calgary maternity store @ellabellamaternity for hanging out with all of us tonight! 💓
The snow is already melting, so we had to get out this morning to play. Took about 30 min to get everyone’s snow gear on, and we were outside for almost as long. 💃🏼 — Totally worth it to see the littles running around the yard making snow angels, and asking when Santa will be here! ❤️ . . . . #wellness #wellnesscoach #motherhood #nutrition #momlife #foodie #healthy #twinmom #twins #momlife #healthylifestyle #running #homecooking #albertamoms #healthymom #toddlermom #realfood #healthymama #alberta #canada #healthymom #healthykids #momblogger #girlmom #Beautycounterconsultant #beautycountercanada
I was happy to install this lovely wall collection on my client's wall yesterday. Photos taken during a half-day in the life session in Canmore.
My whole family 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧🐶 is so excited about our first snow ❄️, and I’m over here asking “where’s the beach?” 🏝 — Our Canadian friends told us this happens every September, and then we still get #fall for about another month, so 🤞that’s true this year. . . . . #wellness #wellnesscoach #motherhood #nutrition #momlife #foodie #healthy #twinmom #twins #momlife #healthylifestyle #running #homecooking #albertamoms #healthymom #toddlermom #realfood #healthymama #alberta #canada #healthymom #healthykids #momblogger #girlmom #Beautycounterconsultant #beautycountercanada
The dreaded 4 pm nap. Years ago with my first, this would have been a big deal to me. Sleep was supposed to happen at sleep times and that was it. But now? I just roll with it. So what if bedtime is a bit later than usual? Sometimes being a parent, especially a new parent with more than one child, is all about rolling with the punches. And sometimes it gives you the opportunity to take an adorable video to look back on when they're bigger! #yeg #yegmoms #newbaby #doula #yegparents #postpartum #parenting #parenthood #albertamoms #makingmemories #sleep #toddlersofig #toddlerhood #naptime #baby4
Sharing 2 quick, kid-friendly #breakfast options, and both are #glutenfree with #dairyfree options. 👌 — Fruit & granola bowl: serves 1-2 * 1 cup yogurt (perfect with almond milk for DF option). Keep sugar less than 5g/serving * 1/3 cup granola (we ❤️ @kindsnacks GF peanut butter clusters) * 1/2 cup blueberries * 1 sliced banana 🍌 I’ve started letting our girls help put theirs together, which they loved. In mine, I add a scoop of @primalkitchenfoods primal unflavored collagen peptides for an extra boost of protein and goodness for joints + skin. 🧚🏻‍♀️ — Granola does get tricky, as many have lots of added junk and boatloads of sugar, so read those labels carefully, like <5g sugar per serving again. 🧐 — Sharing oatmeal with cooked pears 🍐 + pecans on stories later today! . . . . #wellness #wellnesscoach #motherhood #nutrition #momlife #foodie #healthy #twinmom #twins #momlife #healthylifestyle #running #homecooking #albertamoms #healthymom #toddlermom #realfood #healthymama #alberta #canada #healthymom #healthykids #momblogger #girlmom #Beautycounterconsultant #beautycountercanada
** Sleep Tips ** Do you have an early riser on your hands? The biggest question here is how early is too early? Any waking before 6 a.m. is considered too early which I am sure we can all agree on... am I right🙋‍♀️ For most babies and toddlers a wake up between 6 and 8 a.m. is a healthy morning wake-up. Depending on their exact age and how many naps they are having you might be wanting to wake them up at an appropriate time to set up the best sleep but the perfect time is somewhere between 6-8 a.m. If your little one is waking earlier than 6 a.m. then here are some tips to help extend those mornings a little later: - Make sure the sleep environment is dark, dark, dark! Light signals the body to wake up and so if there is any light in the room during those early morning wake-ups it can actually signal a wake up! - Make sure bedtime is not pushed too late. A big indication that bedtime is too late is if we are seeing an early morning. An overtired baby at night will have a more restless sleep which often means an earlier morning. - Don't reinforce the early morning with a nap that is too early. If your baby is over 4 months of age and on a 3 nap schedule I would not have the morning nap earlier than 8 a.m. If on a 2 nap schedule I would not have the morning nap earlier than 9 a.m. If on a 1 nap schedule I would not have the nap earlier than 11:30 a.m. This way we don't accidently let the body "catch up" on sleep following the early morning. - Just because baby is up doesn't mean we need to start the day. If it is before 6 a.m. try going in to your baby and treating it like a night waking. Continue trying to put them back to sleep until as close to 6 a.m. as you can. This way their body is exposed to sleep cues versus being brought out of the room which gives cues that might accidently set the morning schedule earlier! - If there are frequent night wakings occurring this can lead to early mornings due to the all of the broken sleep. The body becomes more restless and we may see an earlier morning. What time does your little one wake up? #babysleeptips #sleeptips #babysleep #baby #sleepbaby #newborn #earlymornings #tooearly
So was the first #ballet class better today? Outfits were precious, a happy meal bribe was on the table after a successful class, and we have been chatting about how fun it would be since last night. 🌸 — Nope. Wouldn’t even go in the room. Stood outside the door and wouldn’t go in without me. We’ll try again next week though! 💗 — Anyone else have littles with separation anxiety? It’s gotten pretty pronounced at our house. I know this will also happen in a couple weeks at school, so I am open to suggestions!! 🌼 . . . . #wellness #wellnesscoach #motherhood #nutrition #momlife #foodie #healthy #twinmom #twins #momlife #healthylifestyle #running #homecooking #albertamoms #healthymom #toddlermom #realfood #healthymama #alberta #canada #healthymom #healthykids #momblogger #girlmom #Beautycounterconsultant #beautycountercanada

Would you believe me if I told you I’ve always been a pretty pessimistic person? Let’s just say the glass was always half empty. . Like always. I guess you could say I’ve come a long way! 😳 . It’s kind of amazing what happens when you take care of YOU. Mind AND body. . I still have days where I feel like I’m drowning...I’m nowhere near perfect! But I have to say, it’s a lot happier life looking for the positives! . Now...I’ll just be over here looking for the positives in this week’s forecast here in Alberta... 🤣❄️ ➖ ➖ ➖ #thecardiodiaries #livingmybestlife #2018goals #icandohardthings #positivity #positivelife #glasshalffull #snowinseptember #albertagirl #bertagirl #albertamoms #yegmoms #womenempowerment #selfcare #selflove #personaldevelopment #anxiousmama #anxietydisorder #anxietywarrior #mentahealthawareness #girlwashyourface
First tumble bugs class for these two today, and all I can say is thank goodness they’re cute and sweet (most of the time). 💗 — Bless their teacher’s heart: they yelled yucky when each new activity was introduced, they didn’t stand in line with the other girls, they had such a fit when I left the room so I had to stand awkwardly by the door, they asked if we could go get @playdoh at @walmartcanada in the middle of class, and they were the only ones not yet in their full leotard garb. #momfail — But, we will chalk it up to a new adventure and go back for ballet tomorrow! 👯‍♀️ . . . . #wellness #wellnesscoach #motherhood #nutrition #momlife #foodie #healthy #twinmom #twins #momlife #healthylifestyle #running #homecooking #albertamoms #healthymom #toddlermom #realfood #healthymama #alberta #canada #healthymom #healthykids #momblogger #girlmom #Beautycounterconsultant #beautycountercanada
