I WISH I figured this all out SOONER, BEFORE I lost my first husband to cancer.... I WISH we had spent the time building the LIFE we wanted instead of settling for the one we got. 😟 I hope you never find yourself in the boat that we did, WISHING we had STARTED with this 👇 question INSTEAD of ending with it. 🤦♀️ You wanna know what sets my SOUL ON FIRE?? 🔥🔥🔥 ▪️Sitting down for dinner with my family EVERY night. 🍝 ▪️ Having SOLID conversations with my hubby every day. �
There’s something about Christmas; the time with family, the long held traditions & the sweet suspense of magical things to come... 🎄 It’s a lot like the JOYFUL anticipation we feel everytime baby girl kicks!! 🙏🏼 We’ve had this name picked out for QUITE a while but we weren’t fully settled on it... until I looked up the meaning. ✨Brave.✨ Emery Rose Galios, we absolutely CANNOT WAIT to meet you!! 😍 #BabyBrave #GaliosHouse

This week marks 22 WEEKS with little Baby Brave!! What’s life like around here with a 22 week BUMP?! 🤰 Basically, I’m constantly saying, "BE CAREFUL OF THE BABY!" as Austyn accidentally head-butts me for like the millionth time... 😂 Its DEFINITELY different growing a new human with another crazy one running around. 🤷🏼♀️ I remember being pregnant with Austyn and just having so much time to just sit and think and dream of her. 💭 And now, I’m like... WAIT!! I’m HOW MANY we
Sometimes I do it for me. ☝🏼 Sometimes I do it for my family. And.. SOMETIMES my motivation comes from somewhere DEEPER. 🙏🏼 Nick died of cancer at 27 years old. My husband DIED because of a disease that presumably has “no cause” but has been on the rise in our society just as quickly as we’ve adopted horribly unhealthy lifestyles. 🤔#correlation We STRESS, we eat CRAP, we don’t MOVE our bodies... & then we get SICK. 😷 And DANGIT, it IS infuriating because “How are we supp
TWO YEARS ago... right around this time of year, Jay Galios had planned a beautiful surprise proposal! 💍 With his momma's diamond placed into a beautiful band, he got down on one knee, five months into our courtship &.... under the mistletoe, asked me if we could build a life of adventure together, following the CALL to serve others. 👩❤️👨 I had NO IDEA it was coming, but I knew that he was meant to be my second chance at love. 💕 God made sure I knew it. 🤗 And, Nick mad
I want YOU to go on a journey with me.
I want you to be come with me on the WORST days... The day my husband, my daughter's daddy, took his last shaky breath, his body a shell of what it once was. When I refused to believe God existed and swore up and down that if He did then He wasn't worth it... When I'd dug myself a grave before I'd even attempted to live.
I want you to be there for the HAPPIEST days... The day I married the incredible guy who had a faith that could
Did I WANT to workout this morning?? NO!! 🙅♀️ Did I have an excuse not to?? YUP! 1. Im pregnant. 👶 2. I was TIRED. 😴3. My bed was warm. 🛌 But, TODAY was Day 1 of our NO EXCUSES NOVEMBER group AND 35+ other women who had all agreed to get up & do their workouts today too.🙄 So, what did I do?? I got up & SLAYED it! And, now I feel FREAKING GREAT!!! 🙏 PRIOR to these groups, I would have stayed in bed & done it "later" & then "later" would've turned into TOMORROW & TOMORRO
I never expected Nick to die at 27. I've already lived FOUR years longer than he ever did. >> WHAT HAVE I DONE with these 4 YEARS I've been given?
>> WHAT HAVE I DONE with this gift that I got and he didn't?
>> WHAT WILL I DO with my 30's? My 40's? My 50's? One thing happened fairly quickly after Nick passed... I started REFUSING. I began REFUSING to put off till tomorrow what I WANTED to do today. HENCE why I created these health & fitness programs I'm so DANG passionate
