“If you don’t love yourself where you are- you will not love yourself 30 pounds less”
During my workout this morning my trainer said 2 things that hit me hard.
1️⃣ don’t worry about where you have to be next, be in the present bc that’s what’s gonna get you there. 2️⃣ if you can’t love yourself where you are right now, you won’t love yourself 20-30 pounds less. ❗️❗️How true is that??
Embrace where you are.... right now.... work for where you want to be.
Love yourself no matter what.
My three favourite photos from the Bloodvein Trip are coming up. This is easily one of my favs and it was taken the second day. @mckinno and @tristyschneider tried to run this fall three times and came super close once, but without a spray deck, it was hopeless. Next summer they will be taking guests out, so maybe next time boys. Also, you can see all our partners stickers on the boat, crushing it! #nevergiveup#trytryagain#wegotthis2018#fight
You ever just get in a funk and you’re like stuck there, you’re unhappy, yet you aren’t willing to muster the energy to change it? ...
That was me. Oct 2017 through April 2018 I fell in a 6 month rut and I gave up. I gave up on workouts. I made excuses for consistently eating food that didn’t serve my body. I quit. ...
At first it just felt good to take a break. Hey, everyone needs a break every now and then. ..
Then I realized I felt flab shaking when I walked in areas that didn’t used to do that!!!! ...
My fav jeans were no longer flattering. ...
My energy was shot ...
But it was more then how I appeared. I felt like I had given up on myself. I was upset I let things go so long and so far from how hard I worked. I listened to lies vs trusting that I knew better!!!! Ugh!!! ....
I am proof there is always HOPE. .
You can make a choice today to take your life back in your own hands. .
You can start with one choice —- to stop making excuses and take better care of yourself. (You don’t have to do it alone!!) .
I want three willing women to join me in the new year because I want to help you claim your life back again. I know how great it feels and I want to feel that JOY all over again through your success!!! ... Drop a 💎 below if you want more info on how we can achieve this for you.

WORD TO THE MOTHERS: gosh these are such powerful words no matter where you are on the scale. Wanting to be a mother I thought I was alone, I was made to feel alone, unusual, subnormal. To be fair social media didn’t exist when I was originally diagnosed, I didn’t tell people as I didn’t know anyone who had any issues making babies (all our friends seemed to just come off the pill and get pregnant) and I thought I was the only one of my generation with “unexplained subfertility”. I even gave my boyfriend (now husband) the opportunity to leave because I felt like such a freak and that surely he could find a nice girl who could make him babies that he deserved to have. He didn’t he married me instead! Then we made Babybel with lots of science and meds. Becoming a mother the day I saw the lines on her test at 4am and rushed into to cry tears of joy all over my husband I still felt alone. In prenatal classes we never told people how she was made. We never even talked to others in the waiting rooms at the clinic or hospital. I regret that. Then she arrived and rocked our world. Luckily I joined a baby group and met some amazing Mums. Together we are so strong. We struggled together with no sleep, feeding, falling, crying, tantrums and even my struggles for #2. Knowing I am not alone has given me strength to carry on. Now knowing that there are those here too takes the not being alone to a new level. #wegotthis2018#ttccommunity#fet#fetcycle#secondaryinfertility
EVERYONE MUST DO THIS EXERCISE. This is life changing. Pelvic floor and lower abs. Reasons to work the pelvic floor: better sex, better control over bladder and 💩 , fitter body (particularly abs), more youthful body, more stamina...for women: easier childbirth and recovery...the list goes on. In class, I explain the sensation of exercising the pelvic floor as having to pee and holding it. Learning to release the muscles slowly is vital. So contract, then slowly release. You will see that my lower belly puffs up. This will happen with you too...think about pulling it in with the muscles, as this happens. You will get extra out of the workout! 3 sets of 10 and you can bend the knees if you want. I know it’s a ton of info...but SO IMPORTANT #wegotthis2018

Sunday back stretches!!! Welcome to our circus 🤡🤡. Hold each for 5-10 seconds #WeGotThis2018
I’m Carmen’s mommy, therefore I am biased. I think she is an extraordinary little girl, yet she is still 4. And at 4 we all have our moments. She came home from school yesterday upset because she felt she didn’t need to hold hands crossing the street 🙄. I gave her a big hug, explaining safety, and wiped her tears...BIG MISTAKE. She told me I took her tears and she will never be able to make any more for the rest of her life...as she is sobbing uncontrollably 🤷🏻♀️. So I sent in the brothers. Teaching my children to be compassionate is so important to me. They naturally do it, and I think this is wonderful. With a little encouragement, it really is so heartwarming. I don’t get to capture these moments too often because taking out my phone is not the appropriate thing to do in these situations. But yesterday felt different, because the boys really took charge...Rafa telling her a story, and Leo giving hugs and kisses. I love to see my little team working together so sweetly. All Carmen needed was a little love to turn her day around 💞 #WeGotThis2018
