🎶On the second day of Fit-mas, Tracy gave to me, 20 seconds of triple bears🎶 On your hands and knees, hands under your shoulders, knees under your hips. Make sure your toes are on the ground and lift your knees 2 inches off the floor. Keeping you’re knees off the ground and back flat, begin doing small hops to each side (hop to the right, center, left, center, etc.). Take the hops at your own pace. If hoping is difficult, step it out. Now, how far apart your legs are is up to you, you can choose to leave a space between your legs as you hop, or keep them together for more stability. Don’t be discouraged if you try to hop, but can’t keep it up and have to step it out. This has always been one of my difficult moves, so it can definitely be challenging. NOTE: when I imagined doing this, I thought of each exercise as separate, 1 day you do one, the next day is something different. If you want to add on like the song does and do each exercise every day, adding the new one for that day, you can, but you don’t have to. .

Custom made choker for a September baby. I didn’t have any opal, so I substituted with these great chunky beads.
I am SO tired right now! I haven’t worked out for a couple of weeks and I feel rubbish for it but I’m just too tired. I’m also about to tuck into some Krispy Kreme Doughnuts! I think I may give myself December off and start again in January 😴💪🏽 #anyoneelse#christmasdiet#tootired

I’ve been extra emotional the past few days because this weekend my firstborn is going to be THREE! Cue the tears! 😭 I honestly don’t know how three years have passed already, but I’m trying to enjoy all the sweet moments I have with this girl every day! I hope she never loses this scrunchy, genuine, squinty-eyed smile! 😍 #browniebitesphoto#choosebrowniebites#sweetmemoriesservedfresh
In snow or sunny weather, what does it matter, as long as we're together! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There. I've officially given you a mantra for bad weather, bad days or even bad winter hair. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You're welcome 😜 ❄️
My kids love to draw. The moment they each turned two, I discovered that my boys were equally as “creative” as their mama. Evan, my oldest (now seven) was always eager to build and make stuff, and Tyler (now five) loves to draw creatures holding hands.
"If only we could be like little children again, with their innocence, wonder, and view of the world as wholly new and perfect. Their silly goofiness, their cries, their laughter all strike a chord in my being. They make me want to be a better mom, and a great person in general. It’s their willingness to forgive, listen, discover, and their general joie de vivre, that capture my heart. When I am with them, I come alive with joy.” - Pg 142, Turtle Design in a Rabbit Age by Mel Lim
My kids ground me to my core. They are my biggest teachers. They teach me how to see the world in an “untainted” way: fresh, filled with joy, excitement, and as though all is still possible.
My book is filled with illustrations from them. The visuals that accompany the stories in my book are expressed in almost childlike vignettes, first sketches by my children, then finished in gouache by me.

When it comes to fitness, I hope that you can see that I've found JOY in it.
It wasn't always this way-- even as a high school athlete. 🏐🏃 I struggled with fitness, had no clue about nutrition, and never saw results at the gym. I would skip meals and was never consistent with my workouts.
But now, I have a Netflix of Fitness 💪🏻 & it is pure awesomeness!
Trust me, I don't ALWAYS look forward to every single workout & have my off days, but I have found so much joy in what fitness has done for me.
Earlier this week, I got to preview another workout from a BRAND NEW program:
20 minute workouts
6 weeks long
Quick, efficient, & fun. Plus, a simple meal plan to go along with it.
If you want to try one of the workouts for FREE drop a 🎅OR🎄 below & I’ll send it your way! #insanity#max30#shaunt#freeworkout#lovefitness#busywife#busymom#workingmom#busylifehappylife#allthesweat#homebody#earlytorise#happyfriday#tgif#cardio

Which team are you??? I want to prove to hubby that I’m not the only one like this 🙊🙈. You’re excited for a girls night out, plans are set, you’re showered, even had a morning nap to prep.
Midday, plans are cancelled.
A. Are you disappointed and make alternate plans because you want to get out and about and mingle.
B. Are you disappointed but secretly super ok with it because it means you don’t have to leave the house. Or mingle. 🙊🙈. Team A or B?! If you’ve been following or know me at all, you can probably guess what Team I’m on! Are we similar?!
Delays are never great...but delays on your way home on a Friday when you got away early to catch an earlier flight which was delayed then not delayed then took off on time then turned back in mid air due to a drop in cabin pressure which then left us stranded on the tarmac waiting on a bus to a new plane only to realise after 40mins the plane was no longer available but all the bags had been moved then your bus to the terminal was turned away then had to come back whilst they fixed the broken plane and put you back in the terminal until they get you a new plane which you board then the temp drops below 0 and the plane has to wait to be de-iced again....yep - those kinda delays are fuckers!!!!! 😂🙈🤷🏼♀️ #wishmeluck#fridaycommute#whenisittheweekend#ineedwine#flybe#justoneofthosedays#getmehome#cantwaittoseeyou#workingmom@stuartyboy1985
❓❓❓ Does anyone else get excited by a new calendar 📆 or notebook? I just opened my new daytimer (yes, I realize that may have aged me a little😉) and I had to have a little laugh 😆 that my entire desk is filled with turquoise. Always working on my brand and really, it just makes me happy.❤️
🎄 I find at this time of year I am busy evaluating things.
▶️ what worked vs. what didn't;
▶️ what lit me up and what drained me;
▶️ what did I love and what did I not like so much;
▶️ who did I enjoy spending time with and who maybe do I need less time with;
▶️ how did I spend my time and how can I spend it more efficiently?
🤔 These are all the things that I am asking myself and looking to the future to keep cultivating a life I love.❤️
So, as much as I am looking forward to a New Year, I am enjoying reflecting and reorganizing before the year-end.
What is the 1️⃣ thing that you look back upon in 2018 that makes you the proudest? Or better yet, tag a friend and tell them how proud them you are. Let us share in all of our wins and lift one another 🆙
💫Have a great weekend!💫

When Addy was about 2 she carried around this hideous black cat made out of this tinsel stuff. Maybe she sees beauty where others don't?🐱 Then there was the phase when she wanted to sleep with a spoon. I am still not sure what this was about. 🥄
Tanner has always only had eyes for Dirty Blue (the name he gave his blanket around this age). I like to think it speaks to his sense of loyalty 🛌
Meet Laikyn. At 2 years old she is now insisting that she sleep with this lamp. It's not on or even plugged in. She calls it her light. She is the definition of hot mess. 💡
Y’all. This sweater. I can’t even. It’s like I’m wearing a super soft, warm blanket. I’ve never owned anything this soft! It’s oversized and soooooo comfortable. I snagged this one from @veryjane HIGHLY RECOMMEND👍🏻 also- ignore my messy bedroom. #reallife
I grabbed this dress on Black Friday, and I’m so glad I did. It’s JUST. SO. FESTIVE!, and it makes me feel like walking wrapping paper in the best way! 🎁🎄 I personally think it is a touch short (especially for my work), so I’m excited to try it over tights or with longer boots.

One job. You had one job and you asked to help wrap gifts. But here we are... 🎁
What do you call people avoiding healthy fats? 🤔🤷🏻♀️
AvocaDONTS 😅😂 (get it?)
On a more serious note...
Once upon a time, I was terrified of guacamole. Yes, TERRIFIED! I thought consuming fat would make me GAIN fat.🙍🏻♀️
So I restricted it. I also restricted all the carbs. You can probably guess how sad my chipotle bowls used to look…Chicken. Lettuce. Maybe a little pico.😢
I wasn’t satisfied. So when it came time to have one of my weekly cheat meals, where I allowed myself the opportunity to eat whatever I wanted…YA GIRL WENT BIZzzURK! 🙃🙃🙃
I would consume one meal with friends, then leave whatever social gathering I was at…make a dash for another FULL order at Sonic…then top it off with a box of Oreos and a pint of Ben & Jerry’s.😲
Yes, an entire BOX of Oreos. 😶
❌Food literally consumed me.❌
My binge eating was out of control. It didn’t matter how many carbs/fats I restricted throughout the week…I never successfully lost weight.😔
Once I found the freedom to food, weightloss became easy. Not only losing it, but KEEPING it off.🙌🏼🙏🏼
Now. I eat things like guacamole.🥑 I eat white rice.🍚 I allow myself to enjoy my meals, rather than sulk over food I don’t want to eat.🙅🏻♀️
If you find yourself in a constant cycle 🔄 of dieting…trying everything under the sun with no long-lasting results…know you are not stuck.
I am on a mission to help moms just like you…
Commit to change! 👏🏼
