I was an "on the sofa working mama" today. So naturally so was my daughter she brought her laptop over and started poking away at the keys!
I am so excited to FINALLY announce my SIXTH annual FREE 12 Days of Fitmas group kicking off tomorrow! 🤗
This group is completely free and simply a place for encouragement, freebie tips, and a fun way to stay active for 12 days this holiday season.
Myself along with some of my coaches will be sharing one move a day with you. We will be sharing holiday "healthified" recipes daily. We will also be sharing a bonus workout playlist from our on demand library you can get free access to and you can use if you'd like a more intense workout every day as well. Most of all, it's an encouraging place for community and fun!
This is my most anticipated group all year and I love hosting it! There is just something so fun about working out with a holiday flair. 🎄
I'm inviting you to join me! Tag two friends you think would enjoy doing this with you and I'd love to have them jump on board too.
Let's have a blast for 12 days of festive holiday workouts, shall we! ❤️ Comment below and tag your two friends if you want to join me!
My favorite little elf but in stead of sneaking any of Santa’s cookies, he’d steal your french fries (just like his mama)
They have to be the most beautiful kids I've ever laid eyes on!! #blessedmama #growingup #chloe&jacob
🎵I knew that God had sent that little boy to remind me...what Christmas is all about 🎶 (Mama’s Christmas Shoes)
You always remember exactly where you were the day your life changes. I was sitting in my classroom prepping for my school day when I got the phone call. My sister was gone, and no one knew the location of my little boy. My other sister was in the car driving to a neighborhood she had only visited once looking for a familiar house...until she found him. And she drove him to my mom, who drove him to me, who brought him home. I remember the rejoicing the moment I posted on Facebook to let the world know that he was back. That he would live with us permanently. It was the best and worst day of my life all rolled into one. So many phone calls. So many well wishes. I remember each person who took the time out for me the day my life changed...
So today, I choose to celebrate the life of my sister through the boy I now call my son. #merrychristmaseveryone #blessedmom #thelife
I can’t talk about mindset enough! Why 🤷🏼♀️ Because it’s a battle I fight daily...throughout the day...sometimes minute by minute.
I can quickly go from feeling incredible to hearing my self-sabotaging thoughts: I’m not good enough, someone else is doing it better, questioning my path, questioning my purpose..... then I remind myself to STOP 🛑 the madness!! 🤪
If we’re feeding ourselves bull$hit, we start to believe it!! 😕 So why not feed ourselves all the good. Tell ourselves that we are blessed. 😇 Made in His image. We are enough. We are worthy.
Start thinking you’re blessed, because you are. Start talking like you’re blessed because you are. Start acting like you’re blessed, because you are. 💜 And when you believe it, that’s when the magic starts to happen. 💫
YOU need to hear this 👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇
Your biggest obstacle is you! #sorrynotsorry #thetruthwillsetyoufree . .
Whatever lie you are telling yourself that keeps you stuck is rooted in your fear 😩 . .
I will never forget the day I had the thought to post to social media and share my postpartum journey.
The sweaty palms
The racing mind
The writing and erasing
And the retakes for days to get the perfect shot . What will people think What if I fail 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️ . .
What! What is that! Fear tortures you, makes you feel small, and limits your potential. I am glad I said F it just post. Helping others like you improve your life is a true blessing and to think I could not experience any of it if I had stayed afraid. . .
So think to yourself... do you want change 🤷♀️ . .
If yes... then push past the fear and be daring.
If no... keep doing you
Life is short, Have Fun!
Swipe to see the fun! 🐦🐦🐦
It’s hard to believe this was two years ago 🎄my best boy
We did it! We went and saw Santa this year without tears or physically assaulting him 👏🏼🙌🏼🎅🏼
So after Skyla's dance recital on Saturday, I took her home and decided to take some nice pictures of her on her special day. Her hair was curled, a little bit of make up, adorable outfit, and was filled with excitement. I can see the love and passion she already has for dance and its neat to see how much of a natural she seems to be at it at such a young age. So maybe someday when she's older and still dancing, I can show her these fun pictures of her on her very first recital day. I love you babygirl 😊💕
It’s looking like Christmas around here 🎄🎅🏻
Did I do it right when I had my first, second, and third babies, in the hospital, with the help of pain meds and doctors and nurses Did I do it right when I decided to go unmedicated and have my fourth, fifth, and sixth children in the hospital, without the help of pain meds Or did I do it right when I had this girl at home, born into the warm water, surrounded by her siblings, daddy, auntie, and midwife You know what I think I think I did it “right” when I did my best, and what I believed was best for us. Which was every. single. time I gave birth ! However, do you know what I’m absolutely certain of now I’m certain that when I began trusting God’s design, when I researched the heck out of things, when I remembered past experiences, when I welcomed all the feels and emotions labor and delivery would bring, and when I placed myself in an environment - surrounded by people I had chosen to be there - I felt most at peace. I felt healthy, strong, and brave!! I felt my baby would appreciate coming into the world this way ❤️
We all have crazy around us, so why not just be ok with it Agree or disagree
We decorated Christmas cookies tonight with our aunties + cousins and it was a legit shit show... Nate reminded me its the memories that matter🎄 Imagining a beautiful day when we all sit quietly, listen to Christmas music and laugh, just like the hallmark movies.. #bigdreamer
So this happened this morning. ❤️😋🥰 My 9 year old daughter and aspiring chef had been bugging me incessantly for two days about making crepes. But after cleaning up dinner, helping out with homework, and fumbling through bedtime, the last thing I wanted to do was to let her loose in the kitchen. Finally last night I compromised and said she could make the batter, and cook in the morning. A gleam flickered in her eye, and soon she and her twin were whispering and scheming. 😄
It’s not even my birthday, y’all. 🤣
For those of you who may be in the season of toddlerhood, bumping into high chairs while picking up the Cheerios that are perpetually on the floor, sighing as food is thrown and tantrums ensue if the meat is touching the potatoes.... Hang in there.
They eventually grow up. ...And occasionally even serve you back. ❤️ #twinmommy #breakfastinbed #crepesnutella #strongcoffee #sunnysideup #goodmorninginsta #hopewriters #blessedmama #twindaughters #familymoments #servantsheart #survivingtoddlerhood #lovelanguage #writersofinstagram
I love baking, but I love it even more at Christmas. It just feels more special. Baking has been different since kids though, I loved it before, but now I love it even more because my kids are baking with me (ok maybe not the little dude 😆). But I also dislike it a little now because I just want to do it myself... 🤪 Motherhood is a confusing rollercoaster of emotions. Or is it just me ⠀
I’ve already eaten 3 dozen cookies...and by eaten I mean eaten. Wait what I mean baked! ⠀
Blessed Mama 💟
