Did you know I love to sleep? 🤣😂🤪
Slept through the alarm, the workout will have to wait. Used that time to throw pulled pork into the crock. Want the recipe? Check out my stories! Sweaty selfie coming soon.. P. S. My snapchat bitmoji still has a Santa hat and I have no idea how to change it 😂😂 #soold #truestory #ineedmy13yearoldtohelp
Being a mom is tough some days! Before being a mom I remember saying all the things I wouldn't let me kids do or I knew they wouldn't do. Fast forward to a 5 year old and 2 year old. And I say again being a mom is tough. By 8am most days melt downs over the wrong breakfast,someone has had a bathroom accident, I gave out the wrong water cups and everyone wants to know the "agenda" for the day! So they can decide if it sounds fun or they would like to melt down again because that day sounds "boring" .
When did these small humans start running my life😂🤣
Waking up before the small humans and getting my sweat on totally worth it! The only melt down was my husband because I made him eat my healthy bread🍞😁

This morning’s diffuser blend smells so good! Highly recommend 💧💧💧Purify
Did you know not all oils are created equally?
Just like food! It’s like the difference between mom’s cooking and a fast food restaurant. There is quality in everything! Don’t get your oils from the same place you get your make up, groceries or clothes. Get your oils from the company that is all about the quality + purity of oils. Let me help you on this journey. I love sharing the magic of essential oils. Happy Friday!
When the hospital gives husband a surprise day off, you make the most of it! Up early together to get our shoulders + HIIT sweat session in before Lu wakes up then getting ready for a spontaneous family day! Beyond thankful for a business I am so passionate about that gives me time freedom and flexible hours so I can match my husband’s schedule with ZERO stress! Happy FriYAY!
My little girl has had to deal with a lot of changes lately. New country, new house and not having daddy around all the time. In addition, it’s challenging not being able to explain why she can no longer physically see her grandparents and cousins. It breaks my heart when she cries their names after we finish FaceTiming with them. The concept of travel and being in different countries is lost on young children. I’m sure she will adapt soon to her new life and will make new friends to play with but for now she is stuck to my hip 🙈 Any tips or should I just give it time? #separationanxiety
MAGIC BEACH story basket ❤️
We're away for the weekend on a coastal adventure so it seemed like the perfect time to revisit one our favourite books, Magic Beach by Alison Lester. We love the rhythm, the gorgeous illustrations and reliving our own experiences through text.
As you may already know the CBCA awards were held today and starting on Monday, the week long celebration that is Book Week 😍
TAKEOVER will be starting on Monday where EVERYDAY next week we’ll be sharing book based play ideas to help get you in the spirit!
Be sure to follow along and join in on the fun by tagging us in your book based play posts and let’s get our little ones excited about books and storytime through play!
Here's the rest of the booky crew participating in the week long takeover ❤️
Eating Nana's ice cream & watching the boats in Galilee.
Today’s the day! Nicolas & Alexa are coming home after 2 weeks away! I’m glad they got to spend quality time with their grandparents, but we are ready for them to be back home!❤️
ANOTHER WEEK DOWN! Another (hopefully last 🤞🏼) week of the challenge!!!🤰🏼 .
, meaning my due date is ONE ☝🏼 week from TODAY! .
While these past few weeks have dragged a bit (ok...a lot ) this whole pregnancy has really flown by and I have zero complaints. Healthy pregnancy, healthy baby. I don’t take that for granted or take it lightly. SO GRATEFUL.
I rounded up to 40 jumps today because:
A. I like even numbers and B. I thought maybe it would give the babe a little push to some say hello sooner 😝)
So another challenge for you today too, if I can get my booty up in the air at 39 weeks you can too 😜
HAPPY FRIDAY AND HAPPY FOURTH BDAY TO MY NIECE REGAN!!! .

Beat the sun this morning for a Friday 10K. I saw three 🦌 that surprised me as much as I surprised them and found a new option for one of my favorite routes. I’ll take that as a win. #Friyay #runchat #seenonmyrun
Turns out the most beautiful things in my life, were never on my to-do list! -Rachel Hollis “Girl, Wash Your Face”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wednesday didn’t start out like any normal day. I didn’t get up on time, in fact I slept from 8PM until 6 AM. I didn’t workout when I got up like I do every other day either. I hadn’t been feeling the greatest and was going to just take a day off and stay home all day. But then around 10 I started to feel better and did my workout and a friend called and asked if we wanted to meet her and her niece at Catch Air. So we did and then went to Chuck E Cheese and you know what friends it was a really fun day. These are both places I kind of dread as a recovering germaphobe, I kid, kinda :) But I’m trying to embrace chaos more, I’m trying to do fun unplanned things, because that’s were the best memories are made! We had a really great day and I look forward to more of them!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How do you embrace chaos?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Meditate, surround yourself with positive people, exercise, drink water, slow down, and eat a well-balanced vegan diet. These are some things to help boost your health holistically. 💓
⭐️Skincare Review ⭐️ Srsly Honey you need this @srsly_honey
O.G Mask in your life 💜🙌🏼 On opening I was greeted by the most beautiful smell of honey and cinnamon. This baby is all naturale and is a friend of sensitive skin 👌🏼The primary ingredient Raw Organic Honey 🍯 will both control breakouts and breathe life into dull tired looking skin 😍 My skin feels super soft, light and bright after using this and massive plus for me is it smells good enough to eat. A truly relaxing and sensory experience when chilling with it on 💜
Da pra acreditar que são pedras? ❤❤❤
Com criatividade, podemos transformar um monte de coisas, ne?! .
So what we had plain pasta for dinner... It’s all I could be bothered to cook.
So what Kingston cried throughout dinner time... I had to feed the older 2.
So what the kids had a 5 minute bath... It’s was enough to make them smell decent.
So what Ben and Holly are babysitting the kids right now... Its keeping them quiet.
So what they’re going to bed early... They can’t tell the time yet.
So what I’m eating my weight in chocolate tonight... I’m surviving.
So, throw a pregnancy/baby into this glimpse of our lives for the last 12 months and it’s easier to understand why I didn’t have the #fitpregnancy
that I desired. But, I SURVIVED. Y’all haven’t lived til you’ve lived through an extensive home reno while pregnant, sharing ONE bedroom with your spouse and toddler, going to school full time, working and having your living room serve multiple purposes with no stove and the only way to wash dishes was the bathtub (which, we ate out a LOT or at my parents because I refused to do dishes on my hands and knees). I didn’t think it was THAT bad in the middle of it, but now I think about it, it was pure madness. I had anxiety, I took out my frustration on my hubby when it became too much but he was also my rock through it all. Daydreaming about it being done and moving on with our lives. My dad did a damn good job with everything though, even though it was more than what we bargained for! It’s been rough but we survived. Survived a home reno and I survived LEG DAY. Mama’s spent and it’s not even 7 yet. 😴
Challenges in life will make you a well-rounded person because you learn something new about yourself and you gain a new way to maneuver through an experience. 😀💓
This may differ depending on where you live - but here is a list of produce that is prime in the month of August. If you do nothing else - add more fruits and vegetable into your meals #veggiestmost #naturescandy
I remember following other women who were crushing their online fitness business and dreaming of that life for myself. I’d find them on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and just be obsessed with how the heck they could create that life.
I would tell myself that that was THEM and not ME. I would feel my insecurities, doubts and fears and I’d turn off my phone and move on to something else. But then I’d find myself following their success again and in the back of my mind WISHING that was me. ✨I am SO glad that I stepped out of my comfort zone and told myself that YES I CAN DO THIS TOO! Now instead of scrolling looking for motivation or success, I create my OWN posts to help others. I have found a consistency with my workouts, with my clean eating and I get to help others find theirs! I am surrounded by SO many POSITIVE people now that I never knew existed out there! .
I have NO regrets - only true gratitude for what being a coach has allowed me to gain in my life. If you are thinking that you can’t do this, you’re not that type of person, you’re not finished with your weight loss journey yet, you don’t have time - those were all thoughts that I had too. I did it anyway and it has turned into one of the best decisions of my life! .
To join my “what is coaching” sneak peek on Thursday 8/23, send me a message or click link in bio to apply. I’ll be going live to discuss the business opportunity then! See ya there! .

2018; we had a blast 💙
This was Greyson's second visit. I was so excited to show him everything that I grew up seeing year after year. As I grew older the Ekka changed, as do most events. However, being able to show Greyson it has created a whole new excitement. He loved everything. The highlight was his honey that he had been talking about all week 😌
3.5 hours is enough for a toddler though, and ME. We didn't get a nap in today, and both of us were feeling it by 4pm 😳
Can't wait to make this a tradition! See ya next year Ekka! 🎡
Week 5 workouts are done!! Excuse my crazy post workout hair!
This program is flying by...I can’t believe it’s been 5 weeks already (might be the treat day making it seem shorter!). I’m feeling stronger. I’m feeling more like a fit person 💪🏼 I love that I get to do these programs with my fit tribe, and they are seeing results too!! You know it’s good when people want to do the program a second time halfway through the first 😂
Most of all, I love how liveable this program is. Fit 4 workouts in YOUR schedule a week. Maybe that means two weekend days and two weekdays. Maybe that’s the off days from your 12 hour shifts. Maybe they’re all during the week. Take a treat day. Maybe that’s your kid’s birthday, maybe it’s mom’s night out, maybe it’s date night. Eat clean foods in normal portions the rest of the time. Don’t know what that means for you? We got you!
And breathe. Enjoy life. Enjoy your family. Smile lots 😁
Any of this sound awesome to you? Because it was just what I needed 💕
Fieuw het is alweer vrijdag! Dat betekend dat papa morgen nog een ochtend moet werken en dan zijn we weer compleet. Gelukkig maar want wat een verdriet heeft de kleine man steeds, omdat zijn grote vriend weg moet. Gaat dit over? En waarom komen die grote tranen niet als mama de deur uit moet. 🤭😢 #kids #kidslife #mylifewithatoddler #toddlermom

“Sometimes you’re up, sometimes you’re down, you just have to learn how to enjoy the ride.” 💖
Some days I repeat these affirmations over and over to remind myself that I CAN do it, I CAN get thru what ever it is that is causing me to have self doubt!
Today will be one of those days... I have a difficult day ahead so FIRST, WORKOUT then AFFIRMATIONS!!! HAPPY FRIDAY!! 😁
