Back to the life I love best. #boymomlife

This kid is turning three in just a few days so of course I’m getting all nostalgic and shit and dammit I’m down the rabbit hole again. I just love that squishy face so much. ❤️❤️❤️

“Fast workouts”
“How to eat without carbs”
“How to strengthen my core”
“The best workouts for my mama stomach”
“Healthy meals on a budget”
.
The above - all of my Pinterest searches I did almost 3 years ago. I was about to have my second babe, I knew that my weight didn’t “melt off with nursing” for me and I needed to find something that would work. I refused to continue to buy MORE bigger clothes because I never got back into my pre-pregnancy clothes the first time. The idea of seeing results seemed so far fetched. I needed to eat a certain way, follow a wild diet and make time for a gym with two under two, a full time job, being a nursing mama and did I mention I traveled weekly (and pumped all over the US🤪)?! Life just felt chaotic, I wasn’t comfy in my skin and was getting anxious by the minute on how I would handle everything.
.
And then a girl I followed posted about a group that would essentially give me everything I needed in ONE PLACE. Like what?! You can actually go to one place to get your workouts, follow a simple meal plan and bonus have people check in with you to make sure you are hitting your goals ... totally sign me up🙋🏽‍♀️and guys, here’s the thing ... it’s sustainable. It actually does work. It literally is a small fraction of my day but any action repeated daily will give you results. But most of all, it’s given me ME back. I’m Kelsey again, the happy, healthy girl that I longed to find once motherhood hit.
.
Taking it back to the 21 day program that started it all for me (swipe too see👉🏽) in my Happiness Project wellness group! I will set you up with the same program (+800 more workouts), a meal plan and support that changed my life in soooo many ways. We kick off next week and I’d love some more mamas to help find happy like I have. Link in my bio to apply 🎉

This face 😍 he’s going through some growing pains right now I think. He’s been super emotional as of late. Chris thinks it’s school, but o think he’s just getting older and trying to learn how to deal with more feelings about everything. 
We went to his school night tonight and he was so excited and had a great time until he didn’t win the raffle prizes 🤦🏻‍♀️😑😂 And I’m just ignoring the long list of things I need to do to get my house sorted before the window ppl get here at 7:30 tomorrow morning 🤩🤪🥰 Meanwhile Cove is just spreading bananas and animal crackers into the carpet 🤦🏻‍♀️🙏🏼 #itneverends #momsjobisneverdone #justkeepswimming #momlifebelike #bestjobieverhad #poopydiaper #momineedfood #momismyfooddone #momimhungry #momcanyoutakemyshoesoff #momcanyoutakemysocksoff #momimthirsty #momlife #boymom #sahm #tucsonmom #cleanlivingmama #cleanmyhouse #boyswillbeboys #momandtheboys #boyswithlonghair #curlyhair #momneedsabreak #boymomlife #toxicfreeliving #nontoxicbeauty #toxicfreehome #yleo #prayforme

Halfway through Cardio Meltdown and the sweat was coming down.

I had a much needed evening with these two little boys. We went for a walk, played outside, had hot chocolate and discussed jerboas. Adam told me his favorite is a “spicy jerboa” and then told me that Bubba is a “stinky jerboa.” It was a perfect evening. 💙 #boymomlife #mytwoboys #geekbeautymom ⁣

𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐤 𝐚𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬:⁣
⁣
When was the last time that you broke a promise to someone else? Probably a long time, right? Most of us slow down before we make promises to be sure we can keep them in the first place, and rarely let another person down.⁣
⁣
𝐍𝐨𝐰 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐤 𝐚𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬.⁣
⁣
When was the last time you broke a promise to 𝘠𝘖𝘜𝘙𝘚𝘌𝘓𝘍? I'll wager a bet that most of us break promises we've made to ourselves daily. It can be something little; like promising ourselves we'll wake up 30 minutes earlier to get some alone time before the kids wake. Or that we won't get into the Dove Chocolates hiding in the freezer again today. Or that we won't pour that 2nd glass of wine while we watch Grey's Anatomy, and go to be early instead...so that we CAN keep our promise of waking up earlier! Only to have a bad day....hide in the bathroom with the bag of chocolates so we don't have the share with the kids (don't pretend you've never done it), anxiously await bedtime so we can watch the Grey's and drink the wine....only to stay up too late and sleep in. Yet. Again. All promises broken. And the vicious cycle continues.⁣
⁣
The thing is, it may seem small...but if you get into the habit of constantly breaking promises to yourself, the next time you go to make a new one? You'll automatically reach for your highest level of training...which in this case, might be zilch.⁣
⁣
Does this sound familiar? Bailing on yourself so you can watch TV? Or scroll social media? How many times have you quit on yourself? How many times have your kids watched you quit on yourself? You are so much better than that sister, and you deserve better, too! Blowing yourself and your promises off can definitely form an unwanted habit, but it's a habit that doesn't have to last if you're ready to make a change...and I can be your wing woman! And I know how to do this, because I've been the mom eating the chocolates and drinking the wine and staying up too late and breaking promises to myself. I sometimes still am, so why not be better together??⁣
⁣
I don't care what your New Year's resolution was; I care about is what's your 𝐯𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧 for your life NOW? Are you ready to live it?

I took him into the LEGO store today to see how he did with the duplo sets they have out for the kids to play with. He had so much fun and kept saying “mama play, I need help” 🥰

P.S. his hair does what it wants to some days, no matter how hard I try 🤷🏻‍♀️

Isn’t it amazing just how loving dogs can be? Even after a bad haircut they still love you!🙈
.
I guess it’s technically not a bad haircut, just an unfinished one, but it has amazed me just how carefree they still are!
.
They don’t care what others think of how they look, they just want to have fun. No bad hair day is going to get in their way! 😜

Quality time during the week can be a challenge. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes it feels like quality time should be an entire day—lunch at our favorite spot 🥘 , followed by a movie 🎥 or bowling 🎳. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In actuality, quality time just needs to ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🗝 Be intentional⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🗝 Happen WAY more often than it does. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It can be focused time reading a book 📖 together, drawing a picture 🖍 , or cooking a meal 👩‍🍳.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The most important thing (and the ONLY thing that is necessary) is that you are focused on that ONE person. ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You are spending time INTENTIONALLY with them for them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are your favorite weekly quality time activities? Would love to hear some ideas! 💡

Coaching is a JOB!
It takes some work.
Simple work, but it goes deep.
We get paid to basically take care of ourselves while helping other women take care of themselves.
It’s pretty dang rewarding, too.
Not just the fact that I get to watch women find confidence in themselves again... but we also GET rewarded— like taking all expense paid trips to Cali to celebrate with each other☀️

I’m counting down the MINUTES till I can take this picture with my Fit & Free girls and celebrate THEM because they are making MOVES. ♥️

Never did I ever think I’d be a mom of two in diapers but, the ends sure do justify the means if the result is these two being this close forever because of the smaller age gap. Every night as Linc walks up stairs to bed, his tiny voice calls out to Deck, “night night Decky!” He wakes up in the morning calling out for his tiniest bro and guards him like his life depends on it. When I call Deck “my” baby there is never a time that he doesn’t correct me with a stern, “NO. MY baby Deck.” Being a mom of four is tough. I won’t lie to you like the articles did me. I read SO many Facebook posts, blog articles, and even took shameless quizzes that said moms of four are the least stressed. LIES. I will say it to the end of time. It’s all lies. 😂 I love this life and feel so incredibly grateful to have each of these four babies to love and squeeze on and at the end of each day I’m glad they have each other. My hope for these four boys is that they will always have each other’s back. That they will always fight FOR each other 100 times harder than they fight each other. That they will strive to make good choices and be true to themselves while supporting each other’s choices. And that they will become great men who give back to this world in ways that I could only dream of. .

 #TransformationTuesday ⁣
⁣
Today in my Virtual Gym, I asked my members to share things they love about themselves. It’s all to easy to share the negative so I find it important to highlight what we love.⁣
⁣
I love my transformation and NO I’m not talking about body type/shape, there is so much more to life. ⁣
⁣
I used to be quite the wall flower, on occasion I fight the battle of wanting to remain unseen but I found that doesn’t bring me joy. ⁣
⁣
I enjoy meeting people, love random conversations, and I can talk to just about anyone. ⁣
⁣
How do I do it? Simple! Find common ground, it really doesn’t matter the age or gender. ⁣
⁣
My short person might do it better than me, remember I AM the shy one of my #partyof3 🤪⁣
⁣
What do you love most about yourself?

“I will beat her. I will train harder. I will eat cleaner. I know her strengths. I’ve lost to her before but not this time. She is going down. I have the advantage because I know her well. She is the old me.” This is what I tell myself, everyday. I am in competition with nobody. It has taken me a long time to come to that, but it's my new mindset. And everyday I tell myself, "I'm going to be better than I was yesterday." Push yourself, don't look to your right or your left and compare your strengths and weakness to anyone else. Just keep pushing. Everyone is different, everyone is on their own journey with their own goals. Focus on YOU!

All parents have different styles when it comes to parenting their children but one thing that is super important & critical in development & growth of your child is proper communication, especially when it comes to their emotions. Positive communication between parent & toddler help the toddler build trust, empathy, & compassion. We as adults do not like our feelings down played so why would a child with much bigger feelings want their emotions downplayed? Or why would they want to be told it's not a big deal, or stop crying, shake it off. Etc. Toddlers have extremly big feelings & big frustrations because they cannot always communicate their needs or frustrations so they communicate in other ways that are not words. Yelling is not the answer parents, ask what's wrong, why are they feeling like that? Console them, work through it, give them a big hug. Proper communication creates proper human beings, strong, sensitive & caring people! Down playing emotions & feelings lead to behavioral issues, bottling up emotions, breakdowns, violence, anxiety, depression, feelings of being alone & much worse down the line. Talk to your baby the same way you'd like to be spoke to when your having some emotional feelings!

All parents have different styles when it comes to parenting their children but one thing that is super important & critical in development & growth of your child is proper communication, especially when it comes to their emotions. Positive communication between parent & toddler help the toddler build trust, empathy, & compassion. We as adults do not like our feelings down played so why would a child with much bigger feelings want their emotions downplayed Or why would they want to be told it's not a big deal, or stop crying, shake it off. Etc. Toddlers have extremly big feelings & big frustrations because they cannot always communicate their needs or frustrations so they communicate in other ways that are not words.

Mom life has been... interesting.... with a broken foot. It’s been difficult not being able to drive for the past 3 weeks. We’ve had to think outside of the box to not lose our minds (or patience) with each other. We’ve done a lot of creative play and spent some time each day have “quiet time”. Luckily, we’ve had more laughs than tears. Only about one week left until my follow up and hopefully 🤞 I’ll find out I can get the boot off and be free to drive again!!!

Seems peaceful, right?

<< I can't even begin to tell you the countless nights I have lost sleep from him waking up. The nights I have tried to comfort him crying. Stumbling out of bed to get a bottle or breast feed half alive. The amount of times I swore I would never let my baby sleep in my bed, but here I am letting him sleep in my bed when he just wants to be by me. >>

Motherhood is such a beautiful thing. There is no magic cure to it. You live and you certainly learn and I have absolutely had my #momfail moments, but I have also had my #momwins. I will continue to live and continue to learn, but man, I wouldn't trade this for the world.

I love you my baby boy.

I used to be a people pleaser.
.
But life experience, time, andmost recently, my own personal growth journey have shown me that you can't please everybody.
.
And, actually, life is a hell of a lot harder and not nearly as enjoyable when you try to make everybody around you happy instead of focusing on your own happiness.
.
A lot has changed since I started focusing on myself. I'm happier, I'm able to take care of the people around me better, and definitely not stressed all the time about what other people are going to think.
.
Are you on a personal growth journey? If you are, what have you learned along the way? .
If you're not, what would be the first thing you would focus on if you were to start one?
