Please tell me I'm not the only one: I make a delicious dinner and before my kids can even try it--they ask if they can have something else! Do you have picky eaters? It can be so hard to get good, nutritious food into their growing bodies! On the podcast this week, @Carelyntorres pointed out that picky eaters aren't all picky for the same reason. Some might not like the texture of the food, others the color, the smell, or the flavor. This gives us the opportunity to try serving the same food in different ways. I love this approach of experimenting and finding healthy food your kids will eat. Have you had success with a picky eater?

Y’all! We don’t know about you, but nothing quite gets us in the holiday spirit like some dang Christmas lights. It’s truly magical, especially now with kiddos! And because you know we love to give you mamas the gift of time, we've got you covered on all the places to score the best Christmas light viewings this season! Head over to the blog to see the list, all sourced for you in one spot! 🔗 in bio! 🎄 #katymoms #katymomsnetwork #localmoms #giftoftime #momswhoknow #houstonblogger #katyblogger #christmasinkaty #momlife #localhappenings #aroundtown #momblogger #momlifebelike #momlifeisthebestlife #momlove #motherhood #momsunite #momssupportingmoms #yourlocalresource #katytx #momtribe #momsbelike #communityofmoms #motherhoodunplugged
I love these kids of mine so much...but I don't always get everything right with them. I was talking to one of my kids and they were getting frustrated with me. I wanted to make things better, so I reached over to give a hug and this child resisted. I pulled my child closer and they stiffened even more. Finally, the child said, 'Mom, you're hurting me!' and got up and left.All I wanted to do was show love, but a hug in that moment was NOT the way that child needed to be shown !It reminded me to give love in a way the person is able to receive.We sometimes have our own agendas and forget that the methods matter! I intended to show her love, but all she felt was hurt (physically and emotionally). My child couldn't receive that hug right then; as the giver, I needed to be more aware of what could be received. I think we sometimes try to do the same thing with our bodies. We want to force them to eat a salad because we think it will make us skinny, without taking the time to understand what our bodies really want in that moment. We have to meet our bodies where they are. Before I lost weight, I learned to eat without shame. I learned to love my body at its bigger size. When I gave myself that love and acceptance, only then was I able to release the weight and have it come off and stay off easily.If you are in a place where your body can receive the help, let me help you in the new year. Mind Body Transformation LIVE starts January 1st. Check out the link in the bio if your body is ready to receive love and weight loss in the next year. #momswhoknowpodcast #momswhoknow #selfcare #selflove #momlife #motherhood #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bodyconfidence #bodylove #selfworth #selfesteem #selfconfidence #selfawareness #confidence #selfhelp #loveyourself #bodyacceptance #personalgrowth #teens
You might not believe it from looking at this picture, but this little guy woke up SOOOOO grumpy from his nap! Nothing could make him happy...except being held by his mama. I had a few other things I needed to get done, but all he wanted was to be held.  As I held him, I thought how awesome it is that he knows EXACTLY what he needs and he won't take no for an answer.  When we recognize our needs and do what is required to get them, that is true self care. Care for yourself with Mind Body Transformation LIVE, starting January 1st.

This week on the podcast, I interviewed Carelyn Torres about getting your kids to eat healthy.I was interested in this topic personally for a number of reasons. First, my son is so into junk food right now! He craves it and I worry that he is eating too much sometimes.  Second, I want my kids to eat right and get all the vegetables in like their mama does. This episode helped me to realize a few things: Kids know what their body needs. My job is to provide healthy food (I do!) and let them choose how much of it to eat. My kids can be healthy without being SUPER healthy. (They don't have to eat as many veggies as I do ;) What were your takeaways form this episode? Give it a listen if you haven't already and let us know! #momswhoknowpodcast #momswhoknow #selfcare #selflove #momlife #motherhood #healthykids #pickyeaters #helpformom #eatright # #healthyfamily #kidsfood #eatwell #toddlerfood #eatinghealthy #eatingclean #eathealthy #toddlereats #healthyeats #healthyfood

Do you ever feel like food is the devil??? Like this delicious cheesecake is just there to tempt you and ruin your figure? In the past I would never eat this, or if I did I would think ‘I just ruined my whole day of eating so I might as well eat more now!’ Guess what- people know me as a health food girl- and I am- but I believe that real health leaves room for occasional cheesecake! Have you ever actually learned how food works for you and your body type? Did you know you can eat that yummy cheesecake and get results??? I’m not saying that having this every day is a good idea, but you can take the guilt out of eating when you learn what fuels your body. I eat what I want, my kids see me eat a lot of healthy food but they also see me eat food that I use to think was off limits! I know what my body needs! It's such a beautiful thing! If  you never learn, you may be missing out on small changes that make a big difference! You can have your (cheese)cake and eat it too! If you want to enjoy all foods, feel good AND get results, you need a transformation.

I can’t tell you how many diets I’ve been on over the years…too many to count. The thing is, dieting is hard and miserable. All you can think about is the food you CAN’T have and you can’t wait until you’re skinny so you can eat again. But eating again puts you right back where you were before!!! This cycle of dieting is worse for you than if you had never lost the weight at all from a medical standpoint, but from an emotional standpoint, it’s even worse. You feel like a failure for not being able to keep the weight off. Trying again seems harder, but you do it, because what else is there?! There is another option. Learning to care for your body in a way that supports weight loss through healthy habits.It doesn’t feel hard- it actually gets easier over time. So there’s no backlash and gaining a bunch of weight when the diet is “over.” Treat your body right and end the self defeating cycle with Mind Body Transformation.

My videographer came out from L.A. to shoot a yoga video (he also happens to be my brother). As I was getting ready, all these doubts started to creep up. Maybe I'm not in good enough shape to shoot a yoga video...maybe my legs will look too big.... my belly isn't flat enough...How can I teach people about health and weight loss when my body isn't perfect? There's no way to hide in a yoga video: you see all the angles and all the imperfections. I almost wanted to call it quits. Then I remembered who I am. I'm not a fitness model. I am a mom of 5. I used to wear a pants size literally double the number I wear now, but even more important than wearing a smaller size, is the fact that I finally feel good in my body. It's easy to stay at this size and weight. I know how to fuel my body and I've learned that it doesn't have to be a struggle. My purpose isn't to teach women how to 'get a bikini body' or any of that other stuff we hear. My purpose is to teach moms real health so they can lose weight, feel good in their bodies, and get on with their own purpose- without letting weight or body image issues hold them back. Real life and real weight loss for your real mom life. I hope you'll join me.

This week on Moms Who Know Podcast: choose one word to get your year off to a great start. I choose a word as a theme to use throughout the year. I use it in my study, in my choice of books to read and podcasts to listen to. I use this word to focus my attention on what I need to learn and what I need to see. My word for 2018 was abundance. Listen to the podcast to learn about some of things I've learned this year. Do you choose a word for the year? Let us know what your word is, or what it will be for 2019! #momswhoknowpodcast #momswhoknow #selfcare #selflove #momlife #motherhood #newyear #wordoftheyear #resolutions #goals #theme #selfworth #gratitude #abundance #dreams #choose

I was introduced to energy healing a few years ago and I approached it with a little skepticism. Can it really help? I wondered. Is this some crazy voodoo? But after working with Reiki Master Mindi Faulkner, I felt different. It's hard to describe, except to say that she helped me clear out some fears and things that were holding me back. I think Reiki is another tool to add to the self care tool belt that can help everyone take a little better care of themselves. What do you think? Have you heard of Reiki? Listen to the podcast this week for a great introduction! #momswhoknowpodcast #momswhoknow #selfcare #selflove #momlife #motherhood #reiki #energywork #healing #lightworker #chakras #selfworth #spiritual #chakrahealing #selfesteem #selfconfidence #paradigmshift #reikimaster #heartchakra #consciousness
I remember going on a date with my husband years ago, sitting down at a restaurant and watching him order, but getting nothing for myself. I wanted to lose weight, so I would only allow myself to eat whatever was allowed on that plan. I was afraid of the restaurant food, so I pulled out my sad little tupperware from home and ate that, while my husband enjoyed a nice meal out. I thought hunger and missing out were the only ways to lose weight. Now, I go out to eat with my husband and actually enjoy the experience- and i'm thinner than I ever was back then. You don't have to be deprived to be look and feel your best! Let me help you lose weight without deprivation.

My daughter looked at this picture of me and said, "Mom, you're so lucky you have a big butt." Um, thank you?😂🤔It got me thinking though, because when I was her age, I would have literally sold my soul to be skinny like she is.  She has the body I would have wanted...and here she is being jealous of my big behind!As a mom, I look at her and think she is just right. I want her to see that in herself. If I could go back in time, I would want the same thing for my younger self. I would tell her to accept who she is. But I know my younger self wouldn't listen. I somehow thought that if I accepted myself, I would 'let myself go' and eat nothing but donuts all day and get bigger and bigger and bigger.What I didn't understand then was this: if you love yourself, you actually treat yourself better. I drink green smoothies every day, not as a punishment, but because I know they give me energy to thrive.  I have treats sometimes not because I've given up, but because I am living a full and balanced life.If you want to learn to love your body AND treat it right, join me in Mind Body Transformation LIVE.

I just completed an 8 week business training with some amazing women.We had an awesome coach who really helped us along, but honestly, she wasn't the only one I learned from. This group of women taught each other. I learned from each one of them. There is power in putting yourself with groups of people who want the same things you do. You help each other by seeing things the others might not see. You recognize areas you need to improve and things you already have to offer. Working with a group toward your goals is powerful. What are you working toward? What are you struggling with? If one of those things is health and weight loss, I have a powerful opportunity: a group of like-minded women to help you reach your goals.

I am thankful for my body! But I wasn't always... In fact, I wasted years of my life thinking I wasn't enough because I wasn't as thin as I wanted to be. I had this idea that my worth, my value were defined by the size of my body.I thought that if I was thinner, I would love myself more. So I tried dieting and working out, always hoping that change on the outside would bring change on the inside. But it never worked. Even at my thinnest, I still didn't feel like I looked good enough. The reason is because you can't solve how you feel on the inside by only working on the outside.You have to change the way you think, and then take care of your body because you love yourself enough to treat your body well. I can honestly say that I am thankful for so many things today: including my body!

I used to look in the mirror and see my thighs: too big. My hips: "childbearing hips"- even before I had all these babies! My belly wasn't flat. My knees were wide. All I could see were the flaws. In all honesty, I didn't need to look in the mirror to think those things about my body. They were in my head, on repeat. all. day. long. How could I ever feel good with that on replay? I tried to diet and get thin, hoping that would change the way I felt. But even when I lost weight, I still felt like I wasn't quite thin enough. But something shifted. I learned to love my body, and then, because I loved it, I learned to treat it well. At 40 years old and 5 kids later, I am in the best shape I've ever been in- mentally and physically. I can help you get there too.

We all know that mom life isn't ever as glamorous as we sometimes portray it to be. Raising a child is hard and it is a life long task.

The dinner hour: that scary time of day when you are trying to get dinner on the table and ALL of your kids start screaming, fighting, and everything falls apart! Why does dinner have to be so hard? Last week I went out of town for a long weekend, leaving my husband here in charge of the kids and the house and the meals.(Isn’t he great??😍) He got details on the carpools, Carter’s schedule, and school information. But then he got really worried about dinner. It’s not that he’s never made dinner in the past; he was probably worried because he has! I used to use complicated recipes that I would search out on Pinterest. (Like dinner only counted if I made it hard or something...) The recipes could sometimes be a little challenging to make…or we might not have all the ingredients and have to make substitutions, which would lead to a stressful dinner situation me, let alone for my husband when he was filling in! This time, before I left, I handed him 3 simple recipes I had printed out. I'd already done the shopping, since the program provides a list of exactly what to buy.The recipes are quick, easy, and healthy (and simple enough for dads to make)! If you are looking to simplify your life, check out your dinner is planned (link in bio) #momswhoknowpodcast #momswhoknow #dinner #ydip #dadlife #familymeals #parenthood #parenting #parentlife #motherhood #healthyfood #momlife #mommylife
Waking up and starting my ay with yoga has been a part of my morning routine for years. One of my favorite YouTubers is Sarah Beth @SarahBethYoga. We have done yoga "together" for years, so it was awesome to spend some time talking off the mat and get to know some of the things she has gone through as a mom. She's had to struggle to balance what she wants with the realities of motherhood- just like all of us! She has had to find out for herself that she is worth taking care of- just like all of us! And she has learned great strategies to get rid of mom guilt and be a little easier on herself. I learned so much from this episode!

I know for me, I expect a lot of myself as a mom. I want to be there for my kids, be the calm in the face of the storm, have a beautiful dinner on the table every night and a clean house--oh yeah, and run this podcast! It's easy to feel like you failed when you set yourself up with impossible standards! This week on the podcast, YouTube influencer Sarah Beth of @SarahBethYoga talks about why she has decided to go easier on herself as a mom- and teaches real, actionable tips for how you can take it easy on yourself too. I loved her down-to-earth approach that comes from really living it and learning to embrace what motherhood is instead of what we think it should be.

"Writing down your thoughts can help you take ownership for your thoughts." -Hannah Coles I have been journaling a lot lately as I process the death of my mother in law. She passed last week and her funeral was yesterday. It's been interesting with Hannah's conversation on my mind about getting to choose what we feel. When I think that my family won't see my mother in law again or be with her for holidays, I feel sad. But when I think about her, being reunited in heaven with her beloved Stan, I am happy because I know that was a joyful reunion. Even in the saddest of moments, we get to choose how we feel. But in this process of grief, I choose to feel all the emotions- happiness for her and sadness for us. #momswhoknow #momswhoknowpodcast #grief #happiness #loss #peace #joy #pray #calm #faithful
"It makes me so mad when..." I bet we could all fill in this sentence a lot of different ways. Hannah Coles is on the podcast today, talking about the only thing that can make us mad: our thoughts. This is a big shift in the way we think.  Circumstances don't determine the way we feel; the way we think determines the way we feel. To me, that is the ultimate empowerment. We get to choose how to feel day to day. Do I want to let this make me mad? Do I want to choose happiness despite what is going on around me? The thing is, you get to choose. Listen to today's podcast where we go deep on what that really means and how your thoughts make all the difference. www.momswhoknowpodcast.com #momswhoknow #momswhoknowpodcast .com #thoughts #mindfulness #selfcare #selfworth #selflove #mindfulliving #mindful #selfesteem #positivethoughts #mentalselfcare #positivemind #powerful

I’ll tell you what, being a mom has made doubt and question myself more than I ever had. I have days were I’m so exhausted mentally, physically, and emotionally I just want to sleep and then of course when the sleep comes it’s doesn’t last long. Then I wonder if I’m doing this all wrong. But when I look at my girls and my heart fills up so much I think it’s going to explode. The most amazing and crazy thing I’ve ever done is become a mom and even though it’s the hardest thing I’ll ever do I have to remind myself that God gave me these babies because he believes in me. He made us a team because these tiny humans would need me as they grow and prepare to be functioning adults in society one day. So if God believes in me who am I to doubt that? I need to stop letting my head tell me things that are self doubting. And remember this is a job I was made to do. If you’re a momma know that you are capable of being the best mom you can be, and don’t tell yourself otherwise. God chose you and that’s means He believes in you. So remember even in the most exhausting times, you got this momma! 💪🏼
When your kids are fighting, do you think about all they are learning? After my conversation with Ralphie Jacobs of @simplyonpurpose , I do! It's still hard to hear as a mom, so I am trying this simple strategy... I walk away. I want them to have this growth, this bonding, this opportunity to work things out without mom intervening. And you know what? They are figuring it out! Sibling rivalry is turning into sibling bonding! Who knew? Listen to this week's podcast if you haven't yet and let us know what you learn! #momswhoknow #momswhoknowpodcast #parenting #siblings #siblingrivalry #sister #brothers #sisters #brother #children #parenting #parentinghack #parentingtip #mother #parenthood #motherhood #mom #momlife
Happy Halloween! Do you wish you had a time machine like Uncle Rico in Napoleon Dynamite? Remember Uncle Rico in Napoleon Dynamite? All he wanted was to go back to 1984 and win the football game. He wanted to go back in time so much, he ordered a time machine online. But if we moms borrowed his time machine, we wouldn't go back in time. We love our kids and we wouldn't wish them away. We would use our time machines to multiply time. Add extra hours to the day, or extra days to the week. Then- maybe- we would have enough time to exercise, to cook a real dinner, to read a book, to play with our kids, to spend meaningful time with our husband-- all the things that we want to do, but don't always happen. Well, maybe you don't need Uncle Rico's time machine after all- you need a time machine that really works. Something that allows you to use the 24 hours you have in a way that lets you get the most important things done. A way to make you feel like you have more time, more hours in the day. A Morning Routine is that time machine, my friend. When you start your day with self care and doing what matters most to YOU, every single day, you will feel like you have all the time in the world. You have enough time to do everything you need to do when you start your day with a morning routine. Makeover your mornings with me!

Do you ACT or do you REACT? Have you ever thought about the difference? ➡ REACTING: means waking up and seeing what's on social media- the things OTHER people feel are important to share ➡ACTING:means starting your day with purpose and intention ➡REACTING: means losing your temper when your kids don't behave ➡ACTING: means choosing how you deal with your kids misbehavior, and setting appropriate boundaries around your won ➡REACTING: means letting the day control you, and not really having a plan ➡ACTING: means choosing how to spend your timeWhat about you?  Are you reacting to the day around you or are you choosing to act? You can take a step in the right direction by creating your best mornings ever in Ultimate Morning Makeover.

Don't be fooled by their smiling faces. Ralphie Jacobs @simplyonpupose shared on the podcast this week that siblings fight 10 minutes out of every hour! (although my kids might even be beating that average!!) It is seriously freeing to know that they are doing just what they are supposed to: learning and teaching each other how to be. They are learning through all this sibling conflict! What do you think are some of the best parts of sibling conflict? Are you taking a step back and letting them work it out?

When you get sick, do you rush to the doctor right away or do you hold off, hoping you will get better on your own? I am the kind of person who thinks that I am going to get better and I resist going to the doctor at all costs. It works out sometimes...except when I don't get better and then I don't get the help I need. I have been sick for two weeks...stuffy nose, terrible sore throat pain, raspy voice (you may have noticed on the podcast!), and keeping my husband up all night with my cough! But I held off, even when I wasn't getting better.I would get better, right?Why did I need help? Today I finally went to the doctor. He said I needed medication and I will feel better in just a few days. This illness did not have to last this long, if I just would have asked for help. Do you ever do this? Think you can do it by yourself and you don't need help? If you do, you are prolonging the suffering just like I was. If you feel overwhelmed as a mom, or like you aren't getting anything done...I can help with that. If you feel tired all the time, or just don't feel like yourself since you had kids...I can help with that. If you feel like you are constantly busy but never have anything to show for it at the end of the day...I can help with that too. You don't have to suffer through motherhood. I can help you get out of overwhelm and exhaustion. Take a lesson from me- Don't wait while it keeps getting worse. www.momswhoknowpodcast.com/morning #momswhoknow #momswhoknowpodcast #selfcare #morningroutine #mornings #selflove #selfworth #selfesteem #selfconfidence #selfawareness #morning #selfhelp #personalgrowth #feelgood #confidence #selfgrowth #feelinggood #healing #loveyourself #early #getup
Does it drive you crazy when your kids fight? If so, you are not alone! As a mom of lots of boys, the fights around here get physical really fast and because I want my kids to survive to adulthood, I tend to intervene. Maybe too much. That's what I learned from this fabulous episode with Ralphie Jacobs of @simplyonpurpose. Our kids learn so much from sibling rivalry- it will add so much to their development if we let them work it out between themselves. I am so excited to put some of the things we talked about into practice in our home. What are you doing to change because of this episode? Also, a huge thanks to @angela_mascio for her recommendation!

Waking up early....out of the question.  Waking up and not feeling like I want to run and hide?  Waking up and feeling excited...yeah, right. These are all stories that I had until I made a choice...To take control of my mornings. When I got out of bed-before my kids!- and chose to start my day with self care, the stories changed. I DID want to wake early...so I could do some yoga, just for me.I didn’t want to run and hide. I was ready for what the day would bring. And, believe it or not, I was excited to wake up.My mornings are my time. I know the chaos will find me later, but I love my mornings, the time I have just for me. Want to love your mornings too?

Do you ever feel not good enough as a mom? You vow that tomorrow will be different. Tomorrow you won't yell, tomorrow you'll have more patience. Tomorrow you will do enough and be enough. You knew motherhood would be hard, but you didn't know that it would stretch you to a whole new level and every day you would wonder if you have what it takes. Know this: you are enough. You just can't always FEEL that because you are so doggone exhausted from taking care of everyone else. You need to replenish-refuel-do things that feed your soul. But how? how do you make taking care of yourself a priority with every thing you have going on? You set up a morning routine! Take care of yourself first. Fill your cup and you will be able to give all day without being depleted. Take the next 30 days to set up a system that will make tomorrow different. The challenge starts November 1st!Join me! www.momswhoknowpodcast.com/morning #momswhoknow #momswhoknowpodcast #loveyourself #selflove #selfcare #morningroutine #mornings #wakeup #routines #selfworth #selfesteem #selfconfidence #beyourself #motherhood #momlife #selfawareness #sahm
What is your morning routine? I can hear some of you laughing right now, thinking, 'Is putting on the same pair of yoga pants that I had on yesterday and eating my kid's leftover toast a morning routine?' Or maybe your routine is to check social media and wonder how those moms have time to do all those things when you are struggling to just find time to take a shower today. And you routinely start the day by feeling bad that all those other moms seem to have it together while you are just getting by. Here's the thing: we get a chance every day to start the morning in a powerful way. It can shape the rest of our day: what we do, how we dress, and most importantly, how we are as moms. Do you want a morning routine that is moving you toward being the mom you want to be? Check out Ultimate Morning Makeover (link in bio)- I can help you create a morning that will get you there. #momswhoknow #momswhoknowpodcast #selfworth #morningroutine #mornings #getup #early #selfesteem #wakingup #daytime #earlymorning #momlife #motherhood #selfcare #selfconfidence #refreshed #ready #awake #gettingready #selfawareness #fatigue #earlybird
Rachel from the fabulous podcast 3 in 30 issued a challenge for moms to share three takeaways on a topic that is important to them. ⠀ ⠀ Here are my three, all about self care:⠀ ⠀ 1. You are worth taking care of! You don’t need permission to take care of yourself; you don’t need to do anything to earn that- you inherently, are worth taking care of. Moms struggle with self-care for a lot of reasons, but one of those is a doubt about their own self worth. Tell yourself often that you are worth it. Tell yourself until you really, really believe it.⠀ ⠀ 2. Routines are fun! Routines help you get in self care regularly. But it kind of has this boring connotation. Nothing could be further from the truth! Routines let you do what you actually want to do, instead of living in reaction to everything around you. Routines help you do the things that actually matter to you- like taking care of your own needs.⠀ ⠀ 3. Self Care helps you to be a better mom. When I started my morning routine, and took time to take care of me every morning, I was kinder. I was less stressed out. I got more done in the day. I stressed less about the stuff I didn’t get done. Self care (especially as part of a morning routine!) helps you be a better mom.⠀ ⠀ #momswhoknow #momswhoknowpodcast #my3in30 #selfcare #selflove #momlife #parenthood #motherhood #routines #morningroutine #youareworthit #youareenough
When you say you want more time, what do you want more time FOR?⠀ ⠀ For me, I want to be able to be with my kids and really BE WITH MY KIDS.⠀ ⠀ I don't want to be skipping pages in the book because I have bills to pay.⠀ ⠀ I don't want to be saying "uh huh" "uh huh" and not really listening because I'm trying to figure out how to get dinner on the table and still get kids to lessons and maybe somehow take a shower today.⠀ ⠀ I don't want to miss out on their childhood because I'm too grumpy to even think about having fun and playing.⠀ ⠀ I want time for me- so I can be all in when I'm with my kids. ⠀ ⠀ I want time for snuggles, and time for books, and time for stories at night.⠀ ⠀ What do you want time for??⠀ ⠀ (P.S. If you are feeling like there's not enough time, check out Ultimate Morning Routine in my bio to learn how to create more time in your day)⠀ ⠀ #momswhoknow #momswhoknowpodcast#momlifeisthebestlife #selfcare #morningroutine # #mommylife #selflove #parenthood #dailyparenting
When I asked what moms were struggling with the most, the answer was clear:⠀ ⠀ I NEED MORE TIME!⠀ ⠀ So many moms are busy and stressed out and feel like they just don't have time to do all the things they need to do!⠀ ⠀ And then, at the end of the day, that can leave you feeling like you never get anything done.⠀ ⠀ You feel overwhelmed. You feel stressed. You feel so, so tired.⠀ ⠀ This episode is all about ways to create more time in your life.⠀ ⠀ It won't add hours to your day, but it will show you how to use the hours that you have so that you feel like you have more time. ⠀ ⠀ Listen to this episode (link in bio) and let me know what you think!⠀ ⠀ Will putting these shifts into practice help you? How do you create more time in your day?⠀ ⠀ #momswhoknow #momswhoknowpodcast #wakingup #morningroutine #ready #stressed #early #mornings #getup #daytime #simplify #mindset #succeed #momlife #motherhood #notime #busy #fatique #mommylife #parenthood #parentlife #momlifeisthebestlife

Active recovery is so important too, I love a good lifting and cardio blast but those muscles need some stretching and releasing once in awhile too! - Foam rolling hurts in such a good way! My calves feel it the most!😫 it has only been this year that I have started using a roller, man what a difference it is making....especially with running on top of it all! - And now I can still log some activity with my girls over in our healthy living support group! 👌🏻💓

The words you speak help to create your world. So stop focusing on what you don't have. Talk about the good in your life and it will multiply. When you find yourself stuck in limiting beliefs, ask yourself how things could change. How can you change? Start with your thoughts and your language, and your life will start to change too!
