It’s been a crazy few weeks between the coronaV and trying to find toilet paper.. but instead of living a life in fear, how about we look up? 🙏🏻💕 #lookupchild
What if life is happening FOR you instead of… TO you? . . . But I didn’t pass the certification. My kid just got sick and I had to miss three days of work, and I was already on the edge of losing my job. I just started at a new company and insurance doesn’t start for another 3 weeks. How in the heck am I supposed to deal with my ex when I have two kids. . . . I hear you. And, girl, man those things are tough. And it is so damn easy to start the stress and worry because you don’t know how it’s going to turn out. You don’t know what the next day will look like or even the next hour. You are living by the seat of your pants. . . . This morning I learned from my girl, @kacia .fitzgerald that there is a chemical DHEA in our brain that is released when you perceive stress as a positive. What?!! How freaking crazy is that. Our brain and health is directly correlated to how we perceive stress. How we perceive the things that come up in life. . . . So.. I’m here for it, how bout we switch our perspective and ask ourselves… what if the situation your in right now is happening FOR YOU? Just that tiny little tweak could change your whole freakin life. . . Happy Monday✌🏻💕
Not sure who needs to hear this today. Keep going girl. You didn’t come this far to just come this far. You are not done yet. ❤️
Accepting the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference. ❤️ My word for 2020 is TRUST. What is your word for next year?
🎤🎤🎤 We tend to complain about everything, but there is so much we could just tweak in life which will become huge changes overtime. #compoundeffect Instead of doing the 21 day ALL OUT detox after Christmas. What about just drinking more water? Or taking a 10 minute walk with the kids? Or adding a veggie with dinner? If the diet you are thinking about isn’t sustainable and realistic during vacation or date night or through the weekend, it won’t stick. Today, let’s start with just making a small change. What’s one thing you will implement today?👇🏻
Christmas Eve traditions are my favorite. ❤️🎁🎅🏻 Had two little additions to the crew this year. 😍
This year was not what I envisioned AT ALL… Through the multiple negative pregnancy tests, the stressful job changes, the loss of close friendships, and gaining over 30lbs because of hormone imbalance, it was definitely not what I had planned. The hurt. The pain. The stress. The fear. The tears. The frustration. I sure didn’t plan for any of it. I envisioned having a sweet little baby joining us for Christmas dinner. I had my heart set on hitting my goal weight. I yearned for the close friendship. I desperately wanted a secure job with less stress. BUT… what I didn’t know was that God had a different idea of how this year would go and what he wanted to teach me. While I may still be struggling through this season, I have a few lessons that are becoming much more clear. ✨Faith. The Lord has put me and Adam through some tough things this year. But testing our faith has made us that much stronger as a couple. Pray for the things you yearn for. Put it in the Lord’s hands. While this trial may be a year long or 10 years long. Trust that he will provide. ✨Friendships. I may have lost a friendship near and dear to me, but I have found true relationships that truly fill my soul. Seek out those people in your life. Find new ones. Try out different activities in your community to find new people. And if you can’t find local friends, social media is a beautiful thing. Message a person that truly inspires you. ✨Listen. Due to my hormonal imbalance and detox from prescription meds this past year, I have learned so much through the process. Listen to your body. It will tell you exactly what it needs. It is a process and our bodies are always changing. Switch up your activity. Play around with different foods and how you prepare it. Rest. I don’t share any of this so you feel sorry for me. I am sharing this because many of you are going through a tough season right now, know that you are growing through this trial. It may hurt. You may feel helpless. You may think there is no light at the end of the tunnel. But I urge you to keep pushing. Don’t lose that fight or that fire inside. I believe in you and I am right here with you. ❤️
It’s time for all of the @michaelbuble music! Happy Thanksgiving! 🐔🍁
Oh hey Denver ✌🏻 nice to see you again. This city will always have a piece of my heart. ❤️
What if what is happening in your life right now in this moment is exactly where you need to be... Maybe you just got let go from your dream job. Maybe your kids are acting out in school and you have no clue what to do. Maybe your best friend is just not who she used to be. Maybe you are second guessing every decision you have made up to this point. DON’T STOP. Don’t give up just yet. And you’re probably saying to yourself yeah, sure easy for you to say because you have no clue what I am going through and you’re right I don’t. But I can tell you that I think out of every hard situation I’ve been through and the lessons I’ve learned through it. A messy breakup. Being diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Having a father that was an alcoholic and was in and out of rehab my whole childhood. Infertility. None of it is easy and most of it we don’t have a choice of what and how it is happening. BUT we can switch the mindset around it. What can I learn? How can I be the best version of myself through this tough time? Where am I putting my faith in this situation? I’ll tell you it’s not going to be easy and you may be in a season that feels like the absolute hardest thing you have been through. Don’t give in. Don’t give up. Keep fighting. Your breakthrough may be just a day away.
Dog park was a success! 🐶
I WANT TO LOSE THAT STUBBORN WEIGHT, BUT I ALSO DON’T WANT TO BE RESTRICTED TO A “DIET.” You feel me on this one? Just a few short years ago. Counting calories controlled my life. I entered them calories into MyFitnessPal like it was my FULL TIME job. If we went out to eat, I would start to panic because I had no idea what the calorie count was for that grilled chicken sandwich or sweet potato fries and would just end up getting a salad. If there was a work event or donuts in the break room, I would avoid it like the plague. Carbs are bad.🙅🏼♀️ No dessert in the plan. Don’t eat too much fruit because they are high in sugar. Don’t touch those starchy carbs… especially at night. Red meat…. Don’t even think about it. What I have found is the more we restrict ourselves when it comes to our food, the more our body begins to go into starvation mode. So how do we break the cycle and still enjoy the dessert at our Christmas party? Here are a few tips that have been a game changer in my journey and what I teach my clients.🌟 🌟The afternoon is rolling around. You are sitting at your desk and all you want is that pumpkin bread in the break room. You are STARVING even though you just ate 2 hours ago. Drink a big glass of water. You may actually be hungry... but most of the time your body is just thirsty or bored.😉 🌟When you’re eating, be present. Enjoy each bite. Don’t sit in front of the TV. We end up scarfing down the food and then our minds think we are still hungry so we go for dessert. But in reality, it can take up to 15 minutes for our stomachs to tell our brain that we are full. 🌟Try new foods. Did you know your taste buds change every 7 years?Yes.. you heard me right! I used to absolutely hate veggies. I would sit at the table for hours as a kid because I refused to eat my veggies and now I kind of enjoy them... Lastly.. Girl, REMEMBER this is a journey. Be patient. Be kind. & love yourself through it all. Because you are showing up even though this road it tough and a bit hard to navigate. Do you struggle with restrictions, too?
Please read this if you have been feeling the guilt today because of #sundayfunday or any other #weekend shenanigans… I wish someone would have told me this sooner… It’s just one day… your goals are not ruined because of one meal or a day of #binging Stop with the guilt… we put so much pressure on ourselves. You eat clean all week and then the weekend comes and you want to treat yourself. But this guilt you are putting on yourself isn’t getting you any closer to your goals. Mindset is everything. I know. You’ve heard it a million times. But I am going to tell you for the millionth and one time. You can kill yourself in the gym for 2-3 hours and eat 1,000 calories a day. But if you do not trust the journey. Trust that you’re body is healing from the inside-out and it starts with your mindset. Sooo… find the small wins. Maybe you chose a salad instead of that burger. Maybe you went on a walk with your husband and the kids. Maybe you drank half your body weight in water. Whatever it is. Give yourself a pat on the back and celebrate because those small wins will turn into even bigger wins. And girl, give yourself a break. No one is perfect. No one’s journey is the same. Just trust the process and maybe have a bit of fun while doing it. #dancepartayalways If you loved this, make sure a tag a friend who would love it too.💞
DO YOU EVER FEEL LIKE AN OUTSIDER LOOKING IN? When I was just a kid, I was in a band. Imagine Spice Girls, but take it down a notch. 😂 Where my 90’s babies at? We thought we were all that and a bag of chips. 5 eight year old girls and a sleep over, you can put anything together. 💃 As the night went on we decided that there could only be 5 people and not 6 so someone would have to be voted out. Because 6 is just too many for a girl band. While we were all hesitant, the girl that got voted out was me. It cut deep. I remember my mom coming to pick me up at 4am in the morning and I just couldn’t stop crying. She asked me what was wrong and I was so ashamed I wouldn’t even tell her. While this was forever ago, it hurt me to my core and for a long time, I kept anyone from getting close. I would have surface level friends, just acquaintances, but nothing deep. As time went on, I found true friends and continued to open my heart even if it was crushed. And even though it was scary. In a world of social media, we scroll every morning, during lunch breaks and even that afternoon lull. We feel like an outsider looking in, just craving connection. Asking ourselves why does she look so happy? How does she have so many friends? Why can’t I just have that? While I had so many takeaways from this weekend, my biggest one from this weekend was just be YOU. #PTBB 2019 Let your light shine. Push past the negative thoughts and comments and the judgement. You will attract your favorite people. If your funny, be crazy funny. If you are quirky, be quirky. If you are nerdy, be nerdy. If you love Harry Potter, shout it to the rooftops. If you love dressing to the nines, do it and OWN it. They will love you or hate you, so might as well enjoy being the highest bravest version of you. Can you relate to this subject as well?
Do not let FEAR get in the way of you doing something AWESOME. . . . 4 months ago I bought a ticket to #PTBB with @angieleeshow and booked the flight to San Diego. I had been following Angie for years and had so much FOMO because I didn’t go to her event last year. I decided to be brave and just buy it and deciding to figure out the rest later. I was so freaking excited I could pee my pants. . . Now that it’s almost here I am FREAKING out. Fear is telling me – . . ✔️I am going to be the loner in a room full of women. ✔️I will be too shy to talk to anyone. ✔️I am so scared to travel alone. ✔️I should just cancel and stay at home. . . Well I have ✌choices. Let that fear cripple me OR I can change that feeling of fear to excitement. I can choose to . . 🌟Be excited and shove that fear out of the way. 🌟Put my best foot forward and talk to new people. 🌟Get out of my comfort zone and enjoy every moment of traveling. 🌟Make this the best DAMN weekend and soak up every moment. . . In less than 4 hours I will be on a plane to San Diego and I am choosing the latter. I am choosing to be BRAVE. . . . What is one thing you will do TODAY to put aside the fear and be BRAVE?🔥
Wanna know the secret to success? The secret is….. There is NO secret!! We are bombarded with all the knowledge or the next quick fix. Lose 20 pounds in 30 days. It’s all over television, magazines next to the checkout, the insta influencer that makes it look so easy. It’s a journey. It’s not about losing those last 10 pounds that you need to lose because magically you will feel much more confident in those jeans. It’s not about passing up that dessert because you are afraid your friends will judge you. It’s not about shaming yourself because you “fell off the wagon” for the 100th time over the weekend. Here are a few tangible steps to stick with it. ✔️Stop stepping on that scale every dang morning and making yourself feel bad because you had too many cookies or that chinese food. Start to ask yourself, why did I eat that and how did it make me feel afterwards? Not in the 5 minutes that you scarfed it down, but 10 minutes later. ✔️With so much info around nutrition bombarding our brains 1000x a day, it’s hard to even know where to start, so just start somewhere. Drink more water today. Write everything down that you ate even if it wasn’t the best option. It helps for you to be mindful of what is going into your body. Just start somewhere. ✔️You will fail. Just accept this cold, hard truth. No one’s journey looks linear or looks the same for any two people. There will be bumps in the road. Just embrace it. Accept it. Just please I beg you, don’t shame yourself for it. In your mind or maybe a journal, ask yourself what triggered me to go on a 1 week binge. What made me eat all those oreos even though it made me feel miserable? Nutrition isn’t easy. If it was we would all be walking around with six pack abs. But that’s not what I want for you. I want you to learn about yourself. What works with your body. Find habits that are sustainable in this crazy thing we call life. Embrace the body that the Lord has given you and just fine tune from there. Just start somewhere. What is one thing that you struggle with when it comes to nutrition? 📸 @cassieeenewell
WILL YOU TRUST ME WITH YOUR LIFE? -GOD @johnmaxwell I am almost 30 years old. Whew! It’s tough putting that out into the world. I had these grandiose plans to have a family, 2 kids, have a house in the country with a wrap around porch and a solid career with a great 401K savings. I am here to tell you 99% of those things HAVEN’T happened and I am okay with it. Wanna know why? As a kid, you were taught to graduate high school then get a degree, marry a nice fella, buy a house, have kids and then life would be great. But what if it didn’t happen in that order and what if that’s completely okay, because God had different plans and you failed to ask him along the way what he wanted. So as I sit here today reading this question, the Lord has slowly taught me piece by piece, experience by experience, thought by thought that I AM NOT in control, He is in control of EVERYTHING. So today, if you are in a season of struggle or doubting, I pray that you give it to the Lord or whomever higher being you believe in. And maybe, just maybe this is exactly where he wants you to be. 💞

Cool whip just a few tablespoons. Add fruit and sugar free caramel. This is so heavenly and if you eat with a baby spoon it feels like you are getting so much more. What is your go to dessert? 👇🏻
