That’s so me but I think my kids are still front runners 🤣. What about you?
Want to dip your toes into health and fitness coaching but don’t know where to start? Scared maybe? Fear of failing or just not knowing what to expect?🤷🏼♀️
I feel ya girl. I felt the same way 4 years ago. I really signed up for the discount and for the accountability to lose my baby weight. But then I thought - what if I could earn an extra couple hundred dollars a month? As a stay at home mommy with a tight budget there was little left for spending and any extras.😣 Was I scared? Heck yes! My hopes however, were way bigger than my fears. I knew that if I could even make an extra $300- $500 a month to help pay for groceries it would make life so much easier! It meant money for my groceries, contributing to the car payments and being able to get a manicure here and there!💰🛒🚘 I reached that in no time. 😍 I never imagined replacing my full time income as an accountant by drinking a shake and working out! Could an extra $500 a month + help you in the next couple months?🤷🏼♀️ Let’s chat!📲
Maybe you need help putting food on your table each month, clothes and diapers on your babies, make your car payment or pay off extra debt on your credit cards.
Maybe you want something for YOU...a sense of community, an uplifting group of men and women to push you towards goals you were always too afraid to admit. Maybe you want to travel and be rewarded and spoiled by your employer!!❤️✈️🛳🏝
Maybe you just want some spending money leftover at the end of the month to just be able to BREATHE and enjoy life or cover your Christmas in cash.💕This business has blessed us beyond measure and I'll be working with 5 special people this week to have it bless them too.💖 We have a special group that we will be sharing our experiences on Wednesday if you want to learn more!

cold mondays aren’t so bad with this baby girl by my side 💕 even if she wakes up at 5:30 every day.....
It’s not always easy, but it will be worth it.
Confession: I ate all the things and drank all the things in Tallahassee last weekend. 🙈 I went back to sleep after I dropped off the kids at school today. 💤 Apparently I don’t recover as quickly as I did when I went to FSU 20 years ago 🤣
The end result - I’m super puffy, bloated and lethargic. I struggled the get through my workout today. Do I regret it? Nope. I’ve been waiting for this weekend for a whole year. I refuse to give up fun social gatherings because I’m worried about staying on track. I’m lucky I have the tools to get me right back on track and today I did just that (after my nap and downing my liquid gold of course ha ha!)!💫💛 The struggle was real today but I’m so glad for pushing through and finishing my workout! Grateful for my new group of accountability partners from our Feeling Fabulous for Fall community who were there for me cheering me on!!💪🏼
that I love coaching: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A focus on personal development. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So much of this journey has been focused on creating a healthier, happier, life for me and my family. Believing in myself. Setting goals. Reaching for those goals. Developing plans to achieve those goals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was laid off earlier this year - and as a midwestern girl, raised that if you work hard and are good at what you do - you'll have job security. So when I found myself without a job - I was really rattled. And I didn't want to go through that again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I really took some time to look at what was important to me and my family - and figured out what my career would look like. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I never though about being self-employed. And not only that, having TWO businesses. But I do now. And I love it. One (Media consulting) is more familiar to me and I would say within my comfort zone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The other (coaching) is definitely outside my comfort zone, and challenges me in new and different ways. But I'm dedicated to both. I work hard. I don't give up. And when I want something, you better believe I'll do whatever it takes to make it happen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Failing is proof you are going beyond your comfort zone.Sent ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

’s new collection. Will shares others on stories when he wears them. We love the statement print jumpers and ripped jeans. Comfy and stylish 👌 👖❤️😎
Happy 6 months to my darling boy, you remind me to slow down, to play and show me what love is. I'm so proud to be your mum and seeing you grow, learn new things and being a happy baby (when you're not crying down the house 😆) Just don't get any bigger ok! 💙
Greatest balloon creation. Ever.👻⠀
And yes, I recommend being the fun parent every once in awhile (It’s good for your health).
We have something spooky coming to the blog this week (toddler friendly, I promise!)⠀
If your curious about what’s coming, I shared a few behind the scenes moments up in my stories. This ones tasty!👻
My little man got upset because he didn’t like that he was being told to do something so he went to his room and crawled under his bed.
And he feel asleep. 🤣
“You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing. You say I am strong when I think I am weak. You say I am held when I am falling short. When I don’t belong, You say that I am Yours and I believe. What You say of me, I believe. “
These lyrics have totally resonated with me for a while now. Can I be honest? Motherhood can be hard & lonely sometimes... we talked about this in our moms small group the other week but I thought I would share it on here.
Do you ever feel lonely? Maybe you are a stay at home mama trying to keep your house + family in order while trying to stay sane. Or maybe you work all day and parent all night. Or maybe your hubby works away from home and you’re trying to do it all. You feel the weight of your family on your shoulders and somehow feel like you’re not enough. Friend, you are not alone! Because even on the loneliest of days when you don’t know how you’re going to keep going, the Lord has been with you and will continue to be with you!
You are not unseen or forgotten. And you are most definitely not alone because God is always with you!🖤
She has a name! We didn’t have a list this time but Blake woke me up yesterday and asked me what I thought about this name and I just knew it was her name!
tom & georgie
today i got one of those @facebook
memories from 2 years ago when samuel went on this same field trip with his preschool.
georgie was just an itty bitty baby when we went and now, now he’s a little terror with dimples and eyes that will melt your soul
Some days you need a little extra coffee and some days you need some liquid gold....after a fun filled weekend with my sorority sisters I realized I don’t recover quite as fast as I used to lmao!🤣💤
Liquid gold to the rescue!!! Just the pick me up I needed to get through the day and now finally get my workout done!😊💛💫
Worries! What worries 🤷♀️ Those giggles overrides them! 😂
Double Tap if your smiling and giggling too. 📷@spencehill
It's beginning to look a "little" like Christmas.... fa la lalalalalalalalaaaaaa....
Impossible to get a good family photo at the age Maddox is at 😂 I can't believe he's going to be 9 months in 10 days, time is SERIOUSLY going by so quick.
I was reminded recently on the SCREAMS that came from the backseat of my car ANYTIME I buckled this sweet bundle of joy into his carseat. No matter the length of the trip, the lack of sleep, the full belly, NOTHING would make him STOP CRYING!!! .
So as a new mom, struggling as we all do, I stayed home to keep the overwhelming anxiety from spiking! I stayed home, because I was afraid that I was doing something wrong, but mostly I was afraid I wasn't a good enough mom. .
I still hear the mean girl in my brain telling me that I'm not a good enough mom, that I am not giving my son everything he needs, but I also hear the uplifting voices around me, including that self love muscle I've been flexing recently telling me that "I'm doing my best, giving him everything he needs and more". .
What was it that changed? Well aside from Corbin graduating to a bigger and more comfortable carset, I found a community, I found a new perspective, learned new ways to battle my anxiety, and mostly I grew into a woman who loves herself through all the faults and imperfections. .
I've heard the scoffs, the eye rolls, the haters, but they didn't stop me from stepping forward when I felt the tug on my heart. The accountability groups and online bootcamps I run are focused on fitness and nutrition, but they are also focused on MORE. On building yourself back up when you a sunk below low, when your anxiety is screaming and you know you need to work on YOU, when you feel the tug to be healthy, but you KNOW you can't do it alone. Together we don't have to, we are women encouraging women, working alone, but together, through marriage struggles, financial struggles, hurricanes, whatever life is throwing our way, we are a community, a safe place...home. .
I'd love to share this with the momma struggling with the screaming baby, or the furmomma who isn't getting ANY sleep at night because of her crying pup or her elderly dog. Even the toddler momma who feels like she will NEVER have time for herself again, because I was you...I am you and this has become my passion and as cliche as is sounds, has CHANGED MY LIFE!!👇👇👇continued below👇👇👇
Even superhero’s need a little help sometimes. It would take a whole team of superhero’s to get my house back under control today!!! 🤦🏻♀️
When I’m feeling insecure my character flaws can really rear their ugly heads. I can end up being overly boastful, super competitive and even catty to other women. Lately, I’ve been feeling like those parts of me having been getting the best of me.⠀
We don’t often talk about our dark sides or where we fail personally, and I guess there’s some deep shame we associate with those traits. What would happen if we were all just real with each other and heck, really OURSELVES about where we can tend to fall short when it comes to being the best versions of ourselves?⠀
So why am I openly admitting where I’m struggling in honestly just my journey just to be a better person? Because now I have to be more accountable...with myself and with you all. I don’t want to be mean to other women bc I’m not feeling great about myself, I don’t want to brag about stuff to others to make myself feel better...my insecurity isn’t an excuse to treat others badly or act in a way in which I know falls short than my best. Sometimes I’m not that great and I do crappy things...we all do...but what’s important is recognizing those behaviors and making a change! Don’t beat yourself up when you fall short...but do work hard to improve upon those areas where you feel you’re failing personally. And here’s the biggest thing I’ve been working on...apologizing to those people that do feel the effects of my cattiness. It sucks to put my pride aside and say sorry sometimes...like REALLY sucks...but I know I can’t be better unless I make myself get out of my comfort zone and apologize to those who deserve an apology from me.⠀
I know this might seem like the most random post ever.. 😂 but it was on my heart to share where I feel I’m falling short lately...and maybe in some way what I shared will help someone else. Also, I want you guys to know I’m so far from perfect and am constantly a work in progress!

Team work makes the dream work 🤘🏼
Heaths cooking dinner.
Jade and I are folding the mountain of washing.
Lola’s on socks and undies sorting.
And Gwen is playing hide and seek in the washing 😂...but she’s still learning.
Do you expect your kids to say “sure, no worries mum” when you ask them to help...?
Did you notice my eldest daughter swooning on top on the washing...???
It’s fairly rare my kids ‘do what I ask’ without some sort of disgruntled groan, whinge, resistance...but I want kids who grow up with some level of ‘pain’, some appreciation for sacrifice and what it means to do something for a ‘greater good’ despite the inconvenience it creates for them personally. .
And as I get on my old-person soap box...I think we have major issues nowadays with kids that are too entitled, too used to everything coming their way, too supported, that when it comes to adversity, to disappointment, to pain, to missing out, to mucking up, to losing, to pushing past resistance...instead they turn away, they quit, they take the easiest road.
So in a way, I enjoy the opportunity of resistance to make way for more learning, more ways to experience perseverance, to practice at their darker emotions, to show love and appreciation through action. .
So I’m clear. I expect they help and I’ll sit in the discomfort holding a strong boundary until they do. I’ll follow through.
They know this.
And so their resistance is less, they have daily practice and I love it because I know they’re learning skills that will set them up for life.
Expect resistance and have your ‘what next’ plan ready to go. When you’re congruent and sure, they will reflect this in their behaviour towards your boundary.
And that is love. It’s just not the Uber-supportive form we’re used to celebrating...
One of the biggest things I've faced during pregnancy is exhaustion. Probably the one and only pregnancy symptom ive had. When I first found out I was pregnant, I read about symptoms and when they would kick in.. but.. 28 weeks in and nothing! I haven't experienced morning sickness, cravings, or food aversions. But let me tell you, fatigue has gotten the best of me. I definitely was not the type to go to the gym everyday or go on runs or even walks, but I'd like to say I was pretty active. Now, I can't even stand to get out of bed because my body is just so sore and tired! I work long shifts and used to enjoy it, but now I can't stop looking at the clock. I know the energy I have right now will be nowhere close to the energy I will... or won't have as a new mom, but still.. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How do yall do it? Is there something you found helpful in regaining energy or is this something I'm kind of stuck with for a while? I'd love to hear your feedback and any symptoms you had/are having and how you cope with them! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Hello hello!! Check out my friend @ciara_gets_healthy
’s amazing transformation!!!😱😱😱 She’s a coach and teacher on our team who took control of her weight and WOW did she make a change both inside and out!! She was determined and after a few rounds of our 21 day program she dropped abour 20 lbs and look at the difference in that dress!! Wowsers!! Doesn’t she look 🔥🔥🔥?! Portion control, a daily nutrient dense shake and 30 minute workouts...that’s it!!!🙌🏼 So proud of you girl! It just gives me butterflies when I see a coach or customer have success like this. Their smile and whole demeanor changes that exudes confidence and I love it!
Who’s going to join me and feel just as good about themselves??? There’s still a couple spots left in my October accountability group starting on 10/29!!🍃🍂🎃
Sunday Snap: Day trip to celebrate a very special friend of ours meant half the time we were in the car and the other half celebrating.⠀
On the way back we may have added two extra hours onto our already 1.5 hour drive due to the most intense traffic jam of all time, however, when you find your tribe....⠀
We love them and love them hard. ⠀
Even it means you end up crawling in the back set to entertain your toddler with the 8th gold fish snack pack, or sing the song, “Old McDonald Had A Farm” at the top of your lungs for the 36th time.⠀
This moment captured here 👆🏻was right before we got on the road. It sure looks relaxing and fun, and the day certainly was!⠀
However, it’s also important to point out that staying close and connected while deep in motherhood is very challenging. ⠀
And those moments of me entertaining Abby in the back seat?
Well, I couldn’t even attempt to take a one women show selfie for you if I could. ⠀
So if this too sounds like you, just know you’re not alone! As a modern mom we are constantly going back and forth between all. The. Things.⠀
Being a great heart to all is our biggest challenge and greatest gift. 💗⠀
Double tap if you too find it challenging this time of year with the holidays to do. All. The. Things.
Do you jump up in a flash at the word food. 😂🍛🎥@teddyminisausage
Double tap and comment below please 👇
