Is a balanced life impossible for most moms?
It seems to me that what many define as balance is actually perfection.
Maybe this is why it seems impossible to get work-life balance, or marriage-parenting balance, or health-productivity balance.
If you define 'balance' as never dropping the ball, never feeling stuck, having it all, and always being in control or coming through for everyone, then yes, it is a pipedream.
But I believe there is a better definition of balance, one that will serve and grow all parts of you, while supporting you to walk in your purpose and calling.
Wouldn't such a definition be a far better one to strive towards?
Instead of this impossible standard that could make you feel inferior, ill-equipped, irresponsible, and totally worn out.
If this struck a cord for you, follow me for insight and guidance, I'm going in-depth on this topic this week.
NOW NOW NOW!!!! The world we live in is all about instant gratification.
We want everything NOW! (Yet it's funny how few of us actually live in the present. The "NOW". But that's for another post.) We want everything now that we've orchestrated ways to do so, in certain areas at least. Everything from waiting only 30 seconds for a meal at a fast food joint to swiping right for a quick date. We want it and we want it NOW. We have become impatient. We have in many instances and situations completely removed the journey. Or prehaps just ignored and denied the journey. But we can't do that for everything. We can't do that for life. Can't do that for relationships. We can't do that for certain careers and we definitely can't do that in business. To name a few.
These take patience, work, sometimes money, time, effort, etc. That's all part of the journey.
And the journey is incredibly important. The journey is there to teach us, prepare us and develop us for what is going to come next. So by removing or trying to remove, ignoring or denying the journey from the whole process were actually making things harder on ourselves, not easier.
So next time you find yourself inpatient, wanting it "NOW" (whatever "it" may be), remember to stop enabling yourself and to embrace the journey.
It's often the simple things in terms of health and well-being that we over look that can actually make a huge difference to how we feel.
Sometimes we might have this ideal of what health should be or get swayed by so much conflicting information and fad trends.
It's the thing that attracted me to Ayurveda, it stripes things right back and is super easy to apply and so practical.
One ayurvedic principle I'm currently working on improving is consistency with waking times, eating times and sleeping times. Otherwise known as dinacharya. Sooooooo many benefits just come from these simple but important aspect.
Does anyone else have a health focus for the week?
I did a bit of a clean up of my room/office over the weekend and got things ready as I start to move into the final phases of my wellness coaching courses and prepare to lunch a few exciting things over the next few months. The flow in my space feels so much better and has really helped the flow of my mind. Love retreating here at night to unwind, helping me to keep up my evening routine.

I am very much liking what I am seeing! 🌿🌱
Even with my herb collection slowly building up I am looking forward to spring when there will be an abundance of lovely plants to harvest 🌿✨.
Do any of you have a favourite herb that grows native to where you live? 🌼
You can have your excuses or you can have success, not both.⠀ ⠀
I speak on excuses quite often because I used to use the hell out of them.⠀ ⠀
My excuses grew bigger than my desires and that’s where I made mistakes, remained inconsistent, and ultimately didn’t achieve anything at all.⠀ ⠀
I harp on people making up bullshit excuses because I know what’s on the other side of them.⠀ ⠀
It’s success, clarity, and motivation. Who wouldn’t want that?⠀ ⠀
If you are prone to making excuses my challenge for you this week is to decide whether or not what you truly want is what you are really committed to working towards.⠀ ⠀
If it’s not; no harm no foul. Change it up.⠀
But if it is, reevaluate your process, recommit, and refocus.⠀

Fear is the absense of faith and courage.
Be faithful and you will have nothing to fear.
Trust yourself, trust the process and stay grounded.
Faith isn't limited to religious belief. Have faith in life as life is always striving to grow and be better. All of which is meant for you if you choose it. 💜💜💜 #raiseyourvibration
[SIGNS - IS THIS YOURS?]
It’s been one week since my fully paid for trip to Palm Beach that I earned with @beautycounter.
Home for one week yes —> but my heart is there with those women and that mission. 🌴
I left in disbelief at my life and so ready to take on the next round of spreading the goodness that is Beautycounter and @greggrenfrew.
I’m ready, y’all. 👊🏼
This is a company that is fighting for us to have a better world. Did you know the name Beautycounter literally means, counter to the beauty industry? So, when we say be counter, me mean —-> go against the tide of mainstream status quo. Be your own Gaga. We happen to be doing it in the world of health and wellness, AND health and wellness is the basis of who we are! Without these, we have nothing.
I’m going bold here - I’m asking you straight up to join me. To join us. I’m asking you if you would even simply be open to a conversation about how this company can change your life and the lives of all your generations to come.
We need your voice. I know many opportunities sounds fake and grand and cheesy; I can promise you friends, this is the real deal. Now, you can say no and I respect that. You also can say yes and you legit have nothing to lose by trying. By leaping. By saying, what if I CAN do this? You will have amazing teachers, mentors, and more personal development than you can get from thousands of dollars of business coaching. You will have me as your cheerleader.
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity. Especially if it is missed due to fear. If you’re reading this and a part of your heart leaps, drop me a 👊 or message me and let’s chat.
Like Eminem said, “opportunity comes once in a lifetime.” This is it. This is your sign. I’m so glad I listened to mine one year ago this week! xoxo, h 💋
When our intentions are derived from a well grounded and good spirited place anything is possible.
If we are hurting sometimes our intentions stem from a less pure place. It is very important to have an awareness around this as it impacts the outcomes of your life.
When we align ourselves with wisdom, not just information, we are positioning ourselves for greatness.
Goodness begets goodness. Integrity begets integrity.
What are your intentions for the coming week and how do they fit into your overall soul purpose?
Lol fact! 😂 Another of the many reasons to drink more water
raise your hand if you LOVE to meal prep🙋🏻♀️
yeah, me either - at least not in the traditional sense - cooking up a week’s worth of identical, pre-portioned lunches & dinners is just not my thing. I’m way too indecisive when it comes to what I want to eat to make that decision ahead of time for the entire week, plus I just don’t have the time or energy to slave away all sunday in the kitchen🤷🏻♀️
but I AM all about prepping a bunch of different meal staples ahead of time, so I can mix & match things to throw together super-quick meals during the week. It saves me SO much time, while still giving me a ton of flexibility👌🏼
ON THE BLOG👩🏻💻👉🏼I’m sharing all my meal-prep staples, tips for saving time & money (ie whats worth buying vs making from scratch), and of course, healthy meal prep staples to making eating well that much easier🙌🏼 all paleo, keto-friendly, gluten-free & dairy-free🤗
do you meal prep for the week? what are some of your staples?
At Target of all places. I knew it existed but was having a hard time finding it. As I was breezing through the grocery section the @Whole30
logo grabbed my attention. Imagine my excitement!! It’s Applegate brand- Uncured No Sugar. And it was my breakfast. What a treat!
I was stealing wifi.
Instead of paying for it in my apartment I put that money into my business.
I knew I needed to hire a business coach to get my business started again.
When I decided to come back to my business I knew it was for life this time.
There was no trying to make it work.
I was just doing it even if it took years.
I was in it for the long game, u feel me?
Even if the people from my past saw me come back online and laugh at me.
Even if it took me years to build a following.
Even if I had a shitty website, no email list and zero followers.
I just did it.
I was working my office job at the time.
I’d wake up at 5 am, drive to my parents or friends house and use their wifi.
I’d coach one or two clients, then eat breakfast in the car and drive to work.
I’d work my day job (usually super long, physically exhausting shifts until 8 at night).
I’d go back to my parents or friends house.
Coach another client.
Work on building my business, post content, network, get coached myself.
Go to my own apartment by 10/11pm.
Eat dinner. Bed.
Repeat the next day and every day, even weekends.
It was grueling.
I had little time for friends, dating, social events, self care, or even cooking food.
It was a choice but I also knew the hustle would pay off.
And it did.
I quit my job and went full time in eight months.
Three months after that I made my entire yearly salary from that office job in one month.
Looking back I’m glad I did whatever I could do to make this happen.
I didn’t get distracted.
When I was discouraged or overwhelmed I had a coach and support system that was ready to help.
Because I declared I was ready.
I just did it. No hoping. No planning. Jumping in. Messy. Full speed ahead.
So when I hear people say they can’t afford a coach I say ok but internally I know it’s an excuse.
And if it’s not an excuse it’s a priorities thing.
Because my business had top priority.
Wifi and cable could wait.
Living alone could wait.
Vacations, meals out, clothes etc.. it all waited because I decided it could.
I’m sure I’m not the only one here that’s made sacrifices for their dream business, right?
Comment below and tell me what you’ve given up 👇🏼
I 🧡 Orange Essential Oil! It is emotionally uplifting - and who can’t use some of that! 🙋🏻♀️
Sometimes life can punch you right in the gut.
Recently my mother passed after a long, hard fought battle.
I wanted to take a minute to write about how stressful of a time it has been for me the last few months and how I was able to manage it with my busy life.
“Life is full of challenges and adversity. The struggle is real AND it’s all relative.
That teenage girl whose boyfriend just broke up with her is just as bummed out as I am right now. We honestly feel the same.
Life gives you perspective as you get older so it takes bigger things to knock you on your butt but the reality is, we all feel overwhelmed sometimes and wonder how we’re going to do what needs doin.”

Is your workout partner this cute?! 💪🏼
Yesterday, Anslee said she was going to workout with me. Did I think she would stay for the entire workout? No Did it matter? Absolutely not! Was I elated that she acknowledged the time I spent taking care of myself? YES!!
The time I devote to my workouts is MY TIME! I do it for me because I know how amazing I feel when I'm done. I know I'm a better mom, wife and friend because I make this time a priority. But I also do it for my kids. Not only do I want to be healthy enough to keep up with them (lol!), I want them to know the importance of caring for the bodies they were blessed with!
They're only going to do what we say for so long. But leading by example - that will last a lifetime!
You have to give love for what you want.
If you are overweight and you're walking down the street and a person with a perfect body passes by you, how do you feel? Life is presenting the great body to you to choose, and so if you feel bad because you don't have that body, you just said, "I don't want a body like that, I want the overweight body I have." If you are struggling with some kind of disease, and you are surrounded by healthy people, how do you feel? Life is presenting healthy people to you so you can choose health, and so when you feel love for the health around you, more than you feel bad about a lack of health, you are choosing health for yourself.
Everything in life is presenting to you so you can choose what you love and what you don't love, but only love brings what you want to you. 💚
Thank you God for giving me a big heart enough to give love and feel love towards everyone and everything that I want, and that love comes back to me 1000x! Just like how much I love my Herbalife Tea in the morning. 💚
Happy Monday! 🤗

Bad shit doesn’t wait till the right time. Just like your health doesn’t wait for you to prioritize it. You’ll get sick when you have a huge presentation at work or you have an awesome trip coming up or it’ll just interfere with life.
That’s why it’s important to provide yourself with regular maintenance. We run better when we give ourselves the requirements we need for health.

Things we forget to track!
This is Warrior Wellness Coaching.
When our bodies - the physical and the spiritual - work together, we are able to fight the battles that come each day with ease.
How often do you think about your intellectual well- being? Your emotional well- being? Your social well- being? Because we can’t physically see these things, we often times forget to give them the attention that they need.
Coaching helps you come full circle, helps you balance, helps you to be complete. Inside and out. #warriorwellnesscoaching #mentalwarrior #warrior #wellness #wellnesscoaching #lifecoaching #bebalanced #victoryoverlifesbattles
🥞✨Sunday brunch is lookin gooooooood 🤤🥝🍓
❃ ❃ ❃
what if I told you that you could eat pancakes, experience ZERO GUILT, and feel like your healthiest self all at the same time? ✨💖 WELL YOU CAN‼️💯
👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼that is the entire point of my K&K 16 week wellness program. it’s not just about recipes + workouts. in fact, that’s the least important part!! what we focus on in our 1:1 sessions is:
🌟GOALS - what do you want? how do you want to feel? why aren’t you there yet? WHY are those goals important to you?
🌟MINDSET - what is stopping you from reaching those goals? how is your inner mean girl holding you back from stepping into your magic?
🌟TOOLS - what are simple and sustainable tools that you can use INSTANTLY to start changing your life for the better?
❃🌈 ❃my program doesn’t really have a rigid structure/meal plan/exercise regiment because it is 100% personalized to my clients 🙌🏼 imagine if you went on a first date and your date said: hey so basically how I structure relationships is we’ll go to the movies every Friday, Italian food every other Thursday, I’ll text you every 3 hours, and I expect to meet your parents in exactly 6 weeks....ok NO that would be WEIRD!!! every person and relationship (personal, business, coaching etc) is 100% unique and needs ~flexibility~ to thrive, so that’s my coaching philosophy 🥰💚💫for more info on pricing, DM me! 😘❌⭕️

“A smile says a thousand things all at once. A smile says I am open to talk, to listen, and to greet warmly. A smile is the best feature that anyone can have and to develop a winning smile will make you happy as well as everyone around you.” 🦋— Byron Pulsifer. .
In life, my deepest desire is to serve & lift up others — emotionally, mentally, physically, & spiritually. I want to impact & influence people in the most beautiful way✨ .
God has planted this desire in my heart at such a young age. I can remember back when I was just such a young child & distinctively knowing exactly what my soul purpose is on this earth😇. My passions not only consist of guiding people on a beautiful journey of healing disease & illness within the body, it goes deeper than that. .
The purpose of healing disease & illness within the body, is so you have a vibrant, pure, & radiant vessel to help you carry out your soul purpose on this earth. .
I do feel very blessed on some level to have such a deep & strong knowing of what some of my life purposes are. 🦋 As I step into alignment with what God has specially chosen for me, it allows me to receive blessings & abundance. .
Blessings of new friendships, clients, relationships, career opportunities, travels, etc. — & all of the abundance God has to offer to each & every one of us.
I pray each day that God guides the right people to me. I pray that God opens doors that wouldn’t be possible without him. I’m not on this journey alone. I am simply a vessel in which God uses & flows through. I hope I can leave a loving impression on every single soul that drifts through my life. .
As a holistic health coach, & future Holistic Dr in the making, I have the opportunity to help others heal their precious bodies with all of the divine knowledge I have been receiving🙏🏽 I guess I just wanted to say, if anyone ever needs some guidance, love, or comfort — I am here for you. It simply brings me so much joy to help & serve others. I truly am so grateful that God has placed these beautiful desires in my heart. .
