Mommin during the day .. so I can chill at night. And because #ilovesleep
Bring it on. My mind is racing with a million things to do but 3 am will come early.
What did I get myself into 🤦🏻♀️ working, full-time mommy of three, chef, maid and driver and now student! #yikes #momlifebelike
People look at you, but they don't see what I see. You are my light, you are my heart beat. They judge what you can't do, I see the amazing things you Can do. You are truly one in a million. God and Grandpa Henry, knew you needed Me...but I needed You more. Tomorrow is a big day for Us... but I will be the rock and voice You need! my sweet little boy 💙
being a mom of two is not easy.
hell, being a mom AT ALL is not easy.
today it was raining, and I mean buckets! i’m from southern california friends... this ish NEVER happens. and well, i’m an absolute lover of the rain. the smell, the sound of the water hitting the surface, the chill.. i’m telling you, everything about it makes me so giddy.
THEN I had two kids, in the pouring rain, while running errands. need I say more?
double tap if you, too, were out in the world where the weather was against you and your kids made you wanna collapse and take a nap.

When you just get into a routine... Teething hits. So early on, but both my kiddos started early. These first couple months have been quite a zinger, and learning to adapt + flexibility+ resilience + grace has to be the ground work. Alot of self-care, serviving one another and taking it step by step. I refuse to believe I must just "survive" this season, but I also know what our boundaries + limits are.
But really, good recommendations for something calming to give a very young teether?
And so my 6 week journey begins!! 🎊
I am ready to conquer my mind so I can transform my body! 🏋🏽♀️
I will push through when it burns. 🔥
When I want to give up, I will do 3 more reps. 🤸🏼♂️
When I think I can’t, I will try even harder!💪🏼
Because it’s more than just exercising. If I can learn to push through the hard times in my workout, just imagine how much more strength I will have to push through obstacles in my life. 🙌🏻
Another negative pregnancy test! I won’t give up, I will stick with it! It can’t get me down. 👎🏼
It means more then working out. If I can do this, it gives me confidence that I can do big things! 👏🏼
I am committing to go ALL IN, 100% (nutrition plan and all!) for the next 6 weeks! I’m terrified to say that on social media because then I HAVE to do it:)🤮
My goal over the next 6 weeks is to push through the mental barriers and get abs....or get pregnant & lose them all🤰!!!
You can watch me, OR you can JOIN ME!!!! C’mon ya’ll, LET’S GOOOOO!!!’

I'm sure you wouldn't expect to have one of those stop-you-in-your-tracks moments in the midst of a Target run, but that's exactly what happened this afternoon. This shirt was hanging there all innocent like, smacking me in the face with the message YOU need to hear today...
Stop living YOUR life based on priorities set by OTHER people. You are going to wake up in 20 years wondering what the hell happened to all the things you wanted to do. Further, stop putting EVERY one and every thing else ahead of your health. You only get ONE body in this life, and you kinda need to take care of it if you expect to have it take you to the places you keep saying that you want to go. Know how the dentist says that you really only need to floss the teeth you want to keep? Well the same thing goes for the rest of your body.
So here's the wake up call. Laugh more. Stress less. See your kid as the adorable, curious, carefree soul instead of the destroyer of worlds. Be in the moment and not in your to-do list (it will still be there). Grab a girlfriend and hold each other accountable for a little self care. The world not only will continue spinning on its axis, but you will actually start to recognize the person you see in the mirror. 💡♥️
Day 4 Post-Op! 🎉
Here’s what I’ve learned so far...
Still swollen, sooooo swollen, and apparently it lingers for months. So no I am not pregnant now, nor will I be pregnant, but will look that way for quite some time to answer any future speculations.
This “drain” that is the size of a pea hurts wayyyy more than the 10” incision that nearly cut my body in half. Who woulda thought?!? (literally the worst part!)
No one mentions the mysterious bruising that pops up EVERYWHERE else besides the actual tummy. If you could only see my google search history now. 😂
My kids actually do know how to pick up their toys and clothes off the floor. Going to milk this “I can’t bend over” for a longggg time. 🤫
You’d be surprised how much you use your core for until it hurts to even twist off the cap of a water bottle.
I’m not sure if I’m missing my workouts or my crunk juice more. 😩
The recliner has been my best friend...the press of a button and I’m laying down or upright. No effort required. If only my toilet had such a function.
Percocet, oh Percocet, I think this may have been the first time I’ve ever taken pain meds, but wow it made dealing with people’s shit so much more tolerable. Why didn’t anyone tell me this sooner?!?
I hate asking for help, but my cat doesn’t mind, and she said her little box could sure use a cleaning. 😼
And tonight at bed time, sweet Talan told me he doesn’t like when I have surgery because I am “boring”. That must mean he thinks I’m usually a pretty cool mom. 💃🏼
On that note, I will be laying on my recliner for the rest of the week being “boring” because I took on wayyyyyy more than I should’ve today and am totally feeling it.

What do you do with your leftovers?
I totally used to be one of those people that would always plan on using them but ended up having them go bad in the fridge and it felt like I was throwing money straight in the garbage 👎Now we use up around 75% of our leftovers and it feels so much better! 😍
Here's a couple of tips to help you use those leftovers up:
☀️ Add an egg and fry any potatoes or rice up for breakfast. 😁 Try to find a new way use them for another dinner. You could add spring rolls to leftover stir fry or fried rice, or try bulking up leftovers with added veggies, spaghetti squash spaghetti also makes super yummy sandwiches with brioche or kaiser buns!

It’s a funny thing, right? I feel like some people are just born with it. That “IDGAF” attitude. They walk into a room with their shoulders back, head held high and you can see it all over their face. I always wanted to be like those people.
I was the introvert, still am actually. I would so much rather stay at home and read a book or watch a movie over going out. And I hate the spotlight. Hate. It. I used to slump my shoulders and have my chin down so then maybe no one could see me. I lacked confidence in myself, my abilities and no one could tell me otherwise.
Until I found this community. Until I found the other women just like me that were learning to push past their fears. I realized that I could do that too. I could fill my cup with personal development, I could show up and do the hard stuff, I could push past what I thought were physical limitations and come out on the other side - alive. And better than ever. .
Confidence is like a muscle, you have to work it, flex it, feed it in order for it to get stronger. You have to stay consistent. And most of all, you have to surround yourself with some badass ladies that are willing to support you and encourage you on the days you can’t muster it up yourself.
This community has changed my life. And it could change yours too. I am looking for women who want to be part of it. Who are sick of slumping their shoulders. Who want to be a part of something BIGGER. Something that uplifts and inspires them. Something that gives them CONFIDENCE in themselves and their unique abilities. Interested in learning more?

I got the weeeeeeirdest email today!
A job I applied for MONTHS AGO told me I didn’t get the job. 🤣 Well duh and thank goodness!
It wasn’t that long ago where, after 5 years of being an online entrepreneur, I was ready to rejoin the 9-5 workforce.
The online biz life was
not worth the long days and nights
On and on and on
I’d been doing it for 5 years and I decided I was done
I applied and even got interviews and allllllmost landed a job
And I am SO HAPPY they passed on me!
Like every day I say THANK YOU to Jesus that it didn’t happen because
While they were deliberating over if they were hiring me or not I was getting bored, antsy, and anxious at the idea of a looooong commute, paying for childcare, never seeing my kids, and when would I get the house clean?
So I started a biz while waiting to hear if I got a j-o-b. 🤣
It became super successful super fast and that’s when I remembered that being an online biz owner is what. I. do.
If any of this resonates with you then I wanna help you start your OWN online biz!
It IS possible.
You CAN do it!
If you have an idea, I’ll help you lay the foundation!
Let’s talk about alllll the important things like your why and dream client in a free class on Thursday!
Sign up at the link on my profile 👉 @thetonihammer
👈 and let me teach you all the important things you need to successfully launch your dream online biz and stahp working the 9-5 grind!
See you in class, girl!
The first time I was given a recognition gift was when I shared my fitness journey and helped a few people get started on their journey .
It meant so much to me to be recognized for my hard work!
Over the past 4 years, I have been overwhelmed with the recognition given to us just for helping people, hard work and passion. This year I have been rewarded with gifts and trips...
I love it. I love that we are recognized for heart and hustle…. It’s a pretty cool way to work and live
Working on this whole sitting up thing 😬 sometimes he seems good but mostly he falls trying to reach something or gets mad because he wants to stand 🤦🏼♀️ #whoneedstosit
My coffee date’s conversations was a little limited but at least he is adorable 🤷🏼♀️☕️🥰
WHY A GIRLS JOURNAL? .
Because, girls start comparing, judging, and doubting themselves as early as 10.
Because, there’s far too much focus on appearance in our media, and it being the only thing you need in your life.
Because, girls need to know that it doesn’t matter how many likes or follows they get, what matters is that they LIKE themselves.
Because, maybe if we can start our girls with this type of daily practice, they won’t even need the adult journal.
Because, I have a daughter and I want her to know her value is not linked to her external traits.
Because, because, because, because, BECAUUUUUSSSSSEEEEEEE.....
Because of the wonderful things she IS!!!! .
Find a journal for YOUR girl (and for YOU, too!) on Amazon - it’s 3 months worth of pure awesomeness, for both of you!
The girls (purple) journal is also available at a few upcoming local workshops. .
I’ll be @etal.byislapearl
in Sunday chatting with some amazing girls in the first GIRLS EMPOWERMENT workshop with @modern.day.yoga.
The journal is included in some upcoming @kidsyoga_portperry
Or, you can just snag one on amazon!
Let’s help these girls soar!
