As moms, we know this. ->>> .
Right now I sit with my sleeping 7 month old who was magically wide awake the minute I was falling asleep. After he was only asleep for TEN MINUTES. .
It can be so hard sometimes.. what I do when the going gets tough.. I tell myself "you are a bad ass. You get up, be strong, be fierce. It's all about the fight in the dog." Because let's be real #realtalk
,nobody else is going to pep talk me. 😂 its #theonlyway
We are capable of incredible things if we give our minds the power. .
Tomorrow I'm going to convince my mind that it's time to get back to doing #butiyoga
EVERY DAY. #nomoreslacking

Perfect day at the beach with friends. Summer, please don’t go 😭
Started off great and I road the roller coaster of emotions all day. I didn’t let it control the one 30 mins a day that are for me!
These workout in my living room always put a smile on my face and make me realize what a badass I am! Why not do it with me together we can tackle and kick goals in the butt! Send me a DM let’s get talking 😍
Homemade wontons for dinner, please!
Wczoraj coś mnie opętało i zachciało mi się pierożków na obiad🙈🙉🙊 Miałam mięso z porcji rosołowej, końcówkę kapusty, marchewkę, cebulę i zapas tych wszystkich sosów azjatyckich, które zawsze muszę mieć w swojej kuchni. Trochę czosnku, imbiru, oleju sezamowego i farsz był gotowy. A ciasto zagniotlam z mąki pszennej i ryżowej. I tak oto powstały pierożki wonton😍
A jeśli zastanawiacie się jak ja to do groma zrobiłam przy dwójce małych dzieci, to powiem, że najważniejsza jest organizacja, którą jakoś już wypracowałam przez te kilka miesięcy posiadania dwójki 😊 No i nie oszukujmy się- dziewczyny miały lepszy dzień 😜
P.S. 1 - do samego farszu nie dodawałam żadnych sosów, że względu na Z., która również jadła pierożki na obiad, ale wy możecie dodać trochę sojowego do środka. My mieliśmy przy talerzach miseczki z sosem, w których maczaliśmy pierożki.
P.S. 2 - Z. nie jadła smażonych pierożków, tylko gotowane😉 Dla małych dzieci nic smażonego!
🙋🏼♀️ Chronic people pleaser? I’ll admit to my ways... for as long as I could remember, I was worried about what others thought of me.
Was I wearing the right brand of clothes? Were my white pasty legs hidden by the nude tights I wore under my cheer skirt? Was my hair styled the right way and most importantly was I part of the “in crowd”? I remember loosing sleep and being stressed every day- worried I would say the wrong things and whether or not people liked me. It’s definitely been an eye changing transformation from high school til now. .
It’s never easy putting your whole transformation journey out there... posting my workouts & selfies (especially days like today in a sports bra) letting people see my unflattened/jiggle belly and stretch marks is down right VULNERABLE!! I swear I told myself over and over again I wouldn’t share such photos with anyone. But... the second I saw that my journey could help inspire another person out there to kick start their own, I realized it would be selfish of me not to share. Through this realization, I gained back my pre-baby self confidence- and that I am the one capable of controlling my happiness!! .
I’d be kidding if I said I don’t find myself playing that comparison game from time to time. However I have learned to love my body again... what the women’s body is capable of doing during pregnancy is a miracle. And I have not only done it once but twice. This body of mine is allowing me to stay active and make long lasting memories with my 2 beautiful boys. Life is short... we are never promised the gift of tomorrow, so why spend the day you have today stressing over things you simply can’t control!! Your past is what defines you- if you let it. Being a people pleaser is something I still continually work on to this day. But every time I follow my heart on this path HE has set for me- I thank god for his grace. 🙏💕
As summer comes to a close, I’m registering Ben for his Junior year, setting Ryley up in her new apartment to start her sophomore year in college and I’m thinking; how did this all go so fast? How will they be 17 and 19 next month? 🤔 While it is amazing to watch them grow up, find themselves and become big humans, there is a small part of me who misses when they believed in fairies and magic and they fought over who gets sit in my lap! 😏 Cherish the time folks, hug and kiss them while they will allow you to do so. Hold their hand, snuggle them and make memories! #itgoestofast #bestthingstoeverhappentome #momof2 #love #blessed #ry

Shoulder POP going on after a killer workout sesh! @joelfreemanfitness
you are making these arms WORK! Although I hate it during, I love it when I see how my arms are getting the definition I’d hoped for so long. To be honest I had kinda given up on the idea. Well THANK YOU strength training! Oh! And by the way- I’m not slaving away at the gym everyday. I’m getting these results from HOME and ONLY 4 days a week!!! You can’t beat that! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

First pic, one week before I had my oldest. Second pic, a day before I had my youngest. Last 2 pics are from last week. My babies are growing up so fast😩 I hope I’m not the only mom who misses being pregnant once they’re no longer pregnant even though we spent the last few weeks complaining & wishing we could go into labor before the due date, which I did btw..
It was MS day at A&W! I went out and got some of the staff some Teen Burgers! I tried the lettuce wrapped burger for the first time and I really liked it!! It’s nice when you can treat yourself and not feel guilty about it because it actually fits in your meal plan!
Are you tired feeling restricted with your eating to try to lose some weight? Well, you don’t have to feel that way any longer, msg me for details!
On a side note 📝 I ate my burger too fast and forgot to take a picture lol
There she goes... walking into school for her first full day. ❤️❤️ Big brother was right beside her. 😀❤️
During my spring Bible study, someone came up to me with a word. At the time, I didn’t understand what it meant. “For I know the plans I have for you....”
If I’m being completely honest, I was frustrated about that verse being given to me. “That’s NOT what it means!” I yelled in my head but now I think I get it. I’m taking a giant leap of faith here, and I’m believing that I’m doing it in a way that glorifies and honors God, but it’s so H A R D! “Plans to give you hope. And a future.” I don’t have any clue what that means for me. But I do love a couple of verses later in Jeremiah, it is written, “You will seek me and find me...”
Jesus said “ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you.” And let me just say, I’m praying some B O L D prayers right now. I am SEEKING His heart and knocking so loudly on His door, others may think it’s an emergency or a battering ram (it pretty much is), and I am trusting Him to do as He says. It’s not easy. It is very NOT easy but HE IS FAITHFUL and so now I cling to the truths that I know and believe He will do it all as he has ordained. Faith is so hard, y’all.
I have NEVER felt this in balance with a program before. I feel strong, lean, empowered 🙌🏻 Truth be told, there is no way I could’ve done a 5 or 6 day a week program this summer. Between the kids, family, work, and fun there just aren’t enough hours in the day nor would I want to miss out on anything.
So this week...I actually took Monday-Wednesday off. While I don’t usually take 3 days of exercise off in a row we needed the time to bring Baxter home 🐾💙 that’s the beauty of this program RESULTS and it 100% fits into our lifestyle! #mindbody
Posie is a constant highlight reel. Everyone always says insta isn't real life and that only the good is shown. Which I totally agree with to an extent. But holy shit there's no need to fake it with this one she is all good all the time. Still sleeps all night, still hangs all day. These past four months as a family of four have probably been the best days of my life💕🌸
Ayer a Dani le llamó la atención una imagen que encontró en la casa y lo quiso pintar el solo. Me sorprendió mucho. 😍
He loves that darn hat so much, he wears it every single day, literally asks for it before we leave, & even wears it around the house. I went back to the Disney store today to look for a replacement Bc it was starting to get yucky🤢& misshaped. Thankfully they had 2 left on clearance for $2.99 each. Yes, I bought both😬 so I can put one away & replace one now. I asked if he wanted a new one & he said no.😂 I’ll have to switch it while he sleeps 🤷🏻♀️ #hatobsession #disneykid #lifestylemoments #twoyearold #daytonohio #disneystore #toddlerstyle #toddlerootd #momof2
