I like a good challenge. I’d say being becoming a mom and SAHM has been the toughest 😝 but I also like being pushed when I workout.
For a long time I went to the gym, and my thing would be 30 min on the elliptical, sit ups, and maybe some of the machines or arm weights. But if the elliptical got too tough, I would dial it down. So when the results weren’t happening, and the jeans fit the same I felt discouraged and helpless.
I have been SO humbled this week doing my ST workouts at home. Wooooooweeeee! The burn in my legs, my heart beating fast, but I’m pushing past the point of excuses which would have stopped me in the past!
It is AMAZING what pushing myself has done for me mentally & physically. It has allowed me to grow my confidence, believe in myself and reach a physical fitness I thought was lost in my 20’s.
This entire month I am pushing past my comfort zone, doing HIIT & cardio. No weights. Just 25-30min of pushing hard, sweating profusely 😅 and burning calories!
Think you could do it? Think you can’t do it? Both answers means you NEED to do it! If you agree, and want to do it with me give me a 🙌🏼
I’m sooo excited the holidays are here! We still have sizes left in this gorgeous piece for babies - and a couple sizes left in the matching big girls dress. #holidaydress
It's that time of year and you still have time. Time to find #BlackSanta
. Head over to the blog to find Black Santa events all over the country. Get a look at last year's pic of Nona running away from Santa.
Today reminded me of how impactful fitness has been to my mental (& physical) health.
It reminded me of WHY I started this journey. I NEED to have “me time”. I need that time during the day that I give back to ME in order to be a better mother, wife and person to myself.
When the gym was too far and the yoga schedules didn’t work anymore I found my home practice. 30 minutes a day I would spend on ME. Sometimes alone, sometimes with kids running around (or joining in). But it was something I could do FOR ME, and it has made a WORLD of a difference in my patience, self confidence and self esteem.
Your outpouring of love & support has shown me how we moms all reach that tipping point (or yelling point?). And I love how we are there to support each other regardless of how much or how little we know of each other. Motherhood unites us but our tipping points bond us.
My wish is that you’ve found the same outlet, release and “me time” as I have found in mine.
Who’s ever taken their kids to kiddy care at the gym and been called out of class cuz they’re crying? Yurp, happened to me at least twice.
My fit-plan after having Isabella was to go to the gym but I remember once, maybe twice 🤔, I would be in a class and someone from the front desk would come to get me because she was crying. I was so embarrassed and frustrated because this was my time to give back to me!
I was so looking forward to going to the gym, time away from the kids (even if you brought them with you), endless supply of weights and machines, and classes. But I couldn’t do...or Isabella wouldn’t let me do it.
So I started working out from home. Quick, efficient 30 min workouts I could get done in between naps, or activities. And you know what’s crazy…I got in BETTER shape at home than I ever did at the gym because I had professional trainers kicking my butt!
So if your gym struggle is real, do what I did! Workout at home 😀 No excuses baby…or I mean mamma 😉
January I’m doing a NEW challenge that’s perfect for the busy mom...20 minutes with a STEP! But this ain’t a beginners class, prep starts next month. Want to join me (and Luna)? Drop a comment, share a like or send me a DM!

When practicing/talking to my 3 year-old in Spanish, I try to play with him by using vocabulary that he is familiar with on a regular basis examples: colors, shapes. (and farts 💨) (is it this a boy thing or something...?😩) Also, his is more engaging with the toys he likes the most, in this case LEGOS and dinosaurs 🦖 o yeah...and Farts...😬🙈 (Btw, As a disclaimer: we parents do not encourage the use of potty language... “exceptions apply😬”). . Parents/Caregivers: How do you immerse your kids into talking another language? Cuando hablo con mi hijo de 3 años en Español, trato de jugar con él utilizando vocabulario familiar que usamos en nuestras rutina diaria. Y ustedes cómo emergen a sus hijos a hablar un segundo idioma?
🛑 STOP WAITING. 🛑
Stop waiting for permission, stop waiting for acceptance, stop waiting to lose 10 pounds, stop waiting for the perfect man or perfect house, stop waiting for 6-figures, stop waiting for someone to tell you you’re qualified, stop waiting to feel ready. Spoiler: you’ll never feel ready.
The people who are changing the world don’t feel ready. They don’t feel qualified. They don’t feel perfect. They don’t have the code cracked. They didn’t know all the answers. They don’t have it all figured out... but that didn’t stop them.
They just started going.
They started sharing.
They started speaking up.
They started creating.
They started helping.
They started showing up.
They started putting out chairs.
I know you, you’re waiting. You’re sitting in your brilliance waiting for the green light. You’re yearning for more and selling yourself less. You’re passionate and holding back. You’re watching everyone else and setting rules for when you can begin. You’re sabotaging yourself before you even start. You’re equally afraid of success as you are afraid of failure.
Imperfect action makes things happen. If you’re waiting for a sign, THIS IS IT. It’s go time! What are you done waiting for? Tell me below, make it real. This is YOUR day/week/month/year. No one is winning while you are waiting. Cool?
I can’t handle the cuteness! 😍😍
Mi cosita Hermosa !! 🌻😍🌸 cuando aún no tenia nada de colochos jajaja no peleabamos para que se dejara peinar 🤣🤣

I love being able to look back to see how far I’ve come. I don’t say I had postpartum depression, because serious PPD requires medication. But I can def tell you I had postpartum blues.
I was so unhappy with myself, uncomfortable in my body, and definitely not feeling attractive. I felt like I lost control of my life. I vividly remember asking myself many times “am I going to get better?”, “Will I get back to where I was?” “Will I be happy again?” I knew what I wanted and what I needed to do for a long time, but I just couldn’t commit to myself. My excuses were no different than many others. I didn’t have the energy 😴 i didn’t have the time⏱; I didn’t have the motivation. But I also think it was I didn’t have the self-esteem to take care of myself.
I remember watching other people’s fitness stories 💪🏼 on social for months! I admired they were doing what I wanted to. I was envious how good they felt about themselves. I was jealous they were able to push past the same mental blocks I was dealing with.
And then the day came when I FINALLY brushed the dust off my computer 💻 , put my sneakers 👟 on and “pressed play”. And let me tell you, it didn’t take long to feel the change!! Finally, FINALLY, I was doing it!
This is my transformation over THREE MONTHS! It’s easy to see the physical change but what you don’t see is how much lighter and happier I feel on the inside 🌞 And for me, that’s what I cherish the most about finally saying yes to me!
There will ALWAYS be a million reasons to push it off but you only need one ☝️ reason to say yes. Mine was to be happy again. What’s yours?
