“Being a perfect mom is a myth - but being a pretty great mom most of the time is actually possible.” - Rachel Hollis
Ummm yeah. What she said! ☝🏼
Perfection is NOT a thing my friends. Whether it comes to your marriage, your fitness journey or your kiddos. NONE of us will ever amount to perfection. 🙋🏼♀️
Our life over her is often a hot mess. Some days the tv is on for much too long, some days (who am I kidding - most days 😂) I wear the clothes I wor
This last weekend was EPIC. With my mind still reeling from all the incredible stories we heard, the besties that we finally met & the incredible way the company we work with goes out of their way to spoil us... I think I was impacted MOST by the presence of our little girl on this trip!! With Austyn back home hanging with the fam & having a blast... Emery, Jay & I took to the sky. And walking across that stage in Indianapolis representing our fitness biz achievements & seein
These pictures were taken TWO MINUTES APART. ✌🏼 TWO.
Ladies 💁🏼♀️ I need y’all to remember something.
👉🏼 YOU see your own body in some of THEE MOST unflattering positions. We ALL have rolls when we sit & none of us looks wildly attractive from EVERY angle. Promise.
What you typically see on social media is ALWAYS going to be the BEST angles & the BEST lighting. (** & I would be remiss not to mention that many images on social media even feature bodies that
YOU GUYS!!! I //still// CANNOT believe the CRAZY ways that God works!!! 💕 Three years ago, I was 27 years old. I was a single widowed mom. My auto immune disease was attacking me from the inside out. My immune system was fragile & my body was weak. I was constantly fatigued, working my booty off to support myself & my 2 and a half year old baby girl. When home, I LIVED on the couch. Now?? Just three years later... A desire to help myself heal (CHECK & CHECK) >> turned into a
Your whole world can shift in an instant. Things like disease, divorce, death, or new life... these things alter our reality entirely. Suddenly. 🤗 And then there’s how your whole world changes in tiny increments, every single day, seemingly invisible... until you take notice. Like how our children grow only one day at a time & yet their “suddenly” in school (or out of it). Or how the best friend you used to know slowly drifts away until you realize they’re virtually a strang
Jay & I took Emery for her first little hike today. As we pushed through the trail, with Austyn skipping up ahead with her Auntie... I was reminded yet again how incredibly important it is to love EVERY step of the J O U R N E Y. ✨ Even as you’re trudging uphill, through the woods, you’ve gotta find a way to enjoy it just as much ((or MORE)) as you’ll love getting to the top. Let me explain. 🤗 In my late teens & early twenties... I was a major workaholic. #confession I enter
SPOTS ((NOW)) OPEN!!
(first come, first served.) Getting winded going up the stairs was NOT awesome for a single mom of an energizer bunnychild. 🐰 I used to roll ALL MY EXCUSES around in my head on repeat... "I can’t workout or eat right because.... I don't have the time.... It's too expensive... I’m too tired.... I feel like crap... This probably won’t work for me anyway... Why should I start now?" 🤷🏼♀️ Deep down inside, I knew I could do better. I knew I could BE bette
The sun was hot against my skin, I forgot my sunglasses & I was starting to sweat but I was SO OVERWHELMED with joy & contentment that my eyes were nearly overflowing.
Just another Sunday spent with the family, soaking up this gorgeous weather... eating street tacos, holding Austyn’s hand, checking out the flower bouquets, flirting with my handsome man, scoping out handmade treasures, changing another hundred diapers... & yet, today couldn’t have been any DIFFERENT.
