I am quickly approaching another PROMOTION and PAY RAISE with my business! Welcome to my office’. It’s beautiful I know. I LOVE the fact I work where I want when I want! My dreams have come true to be a stay at home mom and support my girls as a single parent household with out working a 9-5 that keeps me away from the most important people on my life my girls. When i started I was terrified but I took that terror and turned it into determination and in less that 90 days it paid off big time! I’m getting healthy and helping others get healthy as well as showing other mommy’s IT IS POSSIBLE! If you’re ready to change and be there when it counts the most shoot me text “freedom” to 336-210-3523. #stayathomemom #momlife #workfromhome #momsofinstagram #sahm #stayathomemomlife #workingmom #mom #motherhood #family #momof #youtubemoms #love #bossmom #makemoneyonline #mommy #f #bitcoinusa #girlmom #residualincome #homeschoolmom #entrepreneur #homeschoollife #sahmlife #l #momoftweenagers #momofcollegestudents #momofteengirls #leowifelife #bhfyp

I RECOMMIT to finishing the 2nd 1/2 of this year 💪. .... It’s Tuesday but I’m treating it as a Monday. I have allowed 🏡BIG changes, 😭emotions and 😔stress to allow my nutrition to slip and now I’m READY to take control. ... I had good intentions of starting the weeks off strong then pizza, burgers, tortilla chips and cocktails took over by mid week. ... I will still have treats🍷🍫🍕, I won’t give up my favorites but I will be more mindful and work on portion control. .... Food is fuel and it can help our engines run effectively or slow us down when we feed it crap. .... If you want to commit with me to eat better, shed a couple of unwelcome pounds and inches, give me a raised hand🙋🏻‍♀️. Fall/winter holidays are approaching and we need to be ready for them pumpkin 🎃, 🦃, 🎄 and 🎉#healthyliving #makegoodchoices#portioncontrol

💕Transformation Tuesday 💕 not going to lie. I weighed in at the gym today and wanted to cry. I checked in with my girls online and they encouraged and supported me, letting me know it’s just a number and doesn’t define me or my progress. I KNOW THAT but it’s hard to remember it sometimes. Pictures help me tremendously so that I can SEE my progress in ways other than numbers on a stupid scale 🤣 So a huge thank you to my online tribe of beautiful ladies and my Rob who support me all the way 💕 . . . #togethertransformed #yourenotalone #transformationtuesday #youcandoit #momofteengirls #momofgirls #massachusettsmom #missmymom #goals #wahm #workathomemom #sahm #stayathomemom #coachlife #makealivingbeinghealthy #healthyisthenewskinny #stupidscale #itsjustanumber

I wanted to delete this photo, but the girls wouldn’t let me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We were all characters from Alice in Wonderland for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Man, I’ve worked so hard to embrace my curves and love everything about myself, but the first thing I said when I saw this pic was “I hate this skirt. It hugs me in all the wrong places” 😞 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And this is exactly what I’m trying to avoid teaching my girls. They all said, “Mom, you look great” and my middle one even said, it’s better to have a butt than not. Which is true, I guess 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Gosh why are we so hard on ourselves?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, I kept the pic and now I can’t believe I’m posting it. But, I earned that belly pouch. First of all, I carried 3 healthy babies. And second of all, I enjoyed ALL the Disney treats! Hello Pineapple-Raspberry Dole Whip!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have to constantly remind myself that this healthy lifestyle is just that, a lifestyle. There’s no end. There’s going to be seasons of vacation and more indulgences. But, I know what to do to reign it all back in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And I don’t regret the awesome time we had on vacation, or all the Mickey waffles °o° ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, here I am, it’s the end of the summer, the end of vacations and I’m recommitting and getting my nutrition in check. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Could you use some accountability to get back on track or maybe just to start the journey? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If so, I got you 😘 Message me or drop a comment. The more to hold me accountable, the better!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s not our conditions that determine our choices; it’s our choices that determine our conditions! . Boy, I can be the first to admit, I would blame my conditions for my choices. I am too busy to take care of me. I have young kids, it’s just too hard to fit it in. I’ve already let myself get this far, so there’s no use trying. I like food, so I could never make it ..... . For so long, these were the stories I would tell myself to justify my choices. I would let the conditions control my life vs making the choice to take control of my conditions. . But here’s the thing, no matter what, we ALWAYS have a CHOICE! So, as I plan for my day out in the field tomorrow, I am CHOOSING to prepare food and take that with me vs eating out or grabbing (questionable) food from some gas station 🤢 . While it may not be the most glamorous of meals, at least I know it will keep me fueled, on track, & not filled with garbage. . Being prepared isn’t half the battle, it is the battle! It’s your choice whether it’s worth or not.

I was pretty disappointed in these pens. Sure they have some nice scents but they never wrote well or some never for that matter. 🔹 If got me 🤔. We can be like these pens at times in of our life. Sure it looks like we have our act together but in reality aren’t doing what we were made to do. We put on a good show but we know there is something more we could be doing. 🔹 Where do you think you may have some untapped potential?!

Being a mom is hard... Being a single mom is harder... Being a single mom with no mom friends or support is hardest... . As moms we very often pour our everything into our kids. After all, that's what we're supposed to do, right? Total exhaustion, doing nothing for ourselves until their grown.. that's what is supposed to happen, right?. . No, it's not! . I used to think it was to. Our self-care care is just as, if not more important than the care of our children. . Think about it. When you're exhausted, you're temper is short, you're not doing your best, and your mood sucks ass. . Now, I know you're gonna say, but I don't have time. We have to find time. We have to make time. We need to do it for our kids. Even if it's just a long hot bath one night a week after the kids go to bed. You and your kids need that. . When was the last time you did something for you?

This girl came home from TN and decided she was ready to learn guitar and this week she has been working diligently on writing a worship song...can’t wait to be able to share the finished piece! I love seeing passions and drive blossom and flourish in our kids as they press into doing new things!! As our homeschool year kicks of casually tomorrow—I like to ease into things—I am excited to give each of our kids opportunities for each of our kids to live into their giftedness a bit more. My son is going to be doing a robotics class, one of my girls is getting back to ballet and all three are really ready to step up their music skills with guitar 🎸 singing 🎤 and piano 🎹. . . In what ways do you help your kids work on developing excellence and celebrating what they are good at? We have found, it definitely doesn’t just have to be academics.

Do not be afraid of moving slow - be afraid of NOT moving at all! . 🧸 When we are on our health & fitness journey, we can get too hung up on not moving towards our goal(s) fast enough. And before we know it, the negativity committee comes in and we talk ourselves out of doing anything. We tell ourselves it’s too hard, it was never gonna happen for us, that this is just the way we are supposed to be. . 🧸 We have to remember, moving slow is STILL MOVING! And I say, something is ALWAYS BETTER than nothing. Success comes from those little changes that you don’t think are making a difference. . 🧸 So, the next time you are feeling defeated or frustrated because it seems as though nothing is happening or changing - KEEP GOING. I promise, your body is changing! If you treat your body right IT WILL treat you right! Be patient and give yourself some grace 💞💞💞 don’t let the fact that it’s not happening fast enough be a reason you quit! Your body does not know the difference. . 🧸 Now hit me up with an emoji if you’re not going to give up & to be proud of EVERY little step you make! 🤙🏻🤙🏻🤙🏻

Rewind just a couple years... . Struggling single mom working her ass off and still living paycheck to paycheck. So when back to school time came (or birthdays or holidays for that matter). I was stressed to the max. I was so reliant on my parents, hoping and praying for their help to pick up the slack. It was horribly depressing to not be able to provide for my girls in the ways I wanted to. Unfortunately, relying on their dad wasn't an option either. . Tonight... I am unwinding from a very busy day with both my girls doing clothes AND school supply shopping. . I truly thought this day would never come. I felt I would be destined to live paycheck to paycheck and relying on state and other supports the rest of their lives at home. . The sense of relief and feeling of freedom to be able to say "yes" you can get that.... is truly beyond words. . For all my mommas on the struggle... keep your chin up... keep pushing forward... you are doing amazing!! . . . . . . . . . #glutenfreelife #busysinglemom #momswholiftheavy #singlemomswholift #healthyfromtheinsideout #momofteengirls #mindsetmatters #singlemomstrong #purpleeverything #motivationalpost #coloringbookforadults #adultingishard #youareabadass #momswhoswear #dvsurvivor #scarymommy #busymomof2 #busymomlife #financialstrugglesnomore

Okay think about this statement for a minute. What does it mean for you? Are you happy or are you always waiting for that next things to happen to make you happy? Do you tell yourself that “if only” I could be like I was 10 years ago, if I could have what that person has then I would be happy. Guess what people.....happiness lies within you and only you! Only you can make you happy. Comparing yourself to others by looking at them on social media or your close friend has all these wonderful things, or they are spending time with their children and your at work. Finding happiness in every moment and being present is the key. Be present while you are spending time with your kids...be present at work, be present in everything you do. Then you will never feel like you are missing out. Stop comparing yourself to others. You and only you are stealing happiness and moments from yourself. Important moments that you can’t get back. Live today. Be happy today. Be in the moment today. Stop comparing...you are stealing your own happiness. #lovelife #behappywithyourself #momlife #momofteengirls #loveyourself

#sunriserun Another cloudy day so I borrowed yesterday’s sunset for this capture. A heat wavy for Virginia as I head to Nee Orleans for a week long training Sunday. I guess it’s good practice!! ✨ Today’s podcast was about moving forward. Many times, we have something bad happen and we dwell on it.... for a long time. We let the emu emu soil our soul by harboring resentment or guilt. But that’s not how God wants us to live. He wants to give us #beautyforashes But, we have to let go of the ashes before we can receive the beauty. ✨ Release the bitterness If something in your life ‘dies’ don’t die with it, bury it and move forward. Much like a car 🚘 , there’s a reason the rear view murkier makes what’s behind us seem small, it’s because what’s in front of us is so much more important. ✨ So, stay focused on what lies ahead, the great things God has in store for you and stop letting the enemy or bitterness and guilt in. Say goodbye to the past. More forward. ✨ #moveforward #godisgood #runningmotivation #runnergirl #runnersofinstagram #jojosstyle #fiftyandfit #fiftyandfabulous #50andfit #fitnessmotivation #fitmom #momofteengirls #keepingmytorchlit #alwayshavehope #alwaysbekind

The mouth speaks what the heart is full of! I was sitting at my desk the other day with a very heavy, anxious feeling! It felt like the weight of the world was sitting on my shoulders! I have struggled lately to realize my purpose in business! What am I meant to share in this journey of mine? What is important that could help others! . I have allowed those thoughts to become an imprint on my heart, which in turn has caused doubt in my ability, and worth to others, from a business perspective!!! Have you ever felt that way,in any area of your life? That same day, I was listening to a podcast searching for something that could give me hope! As I sat there listening quietly while taking notes...this is what I heard! If you think about “debt, you’ll be in debt forever! You become what you think about! . In my case, the “debt,” is worry, confusion, searching, not knowing, comparing my stage in business to others and it had begun to consume my heart! See, my heart *KNOWS* how I want to impact others...it’s the getting there that has me stumped!!! Now that our kids are getting older, I want to impact their lives in a positive way, as well as so many others!! I want to *FEEL* that purpose deep in my soul and shout it to the world!!! . I have started my gratitude journaling as part of my morning routine and woke up with a lighter heart and hopeful feeling!!! .

I admit it. I’ve been wrong about a lot of things. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In fact, it’s funny the things we can talk ourselves into or out of, right. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I never thought I was a morning person. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I never considered myself “athletic”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I never thought did wear shorts again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I thought I would need a large fitness following or know a lot of people to make this coaching thing work. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I thought “it’s probably one of those pyramid things”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I truly thought I would need a lot of extra time, & couldn’t be working full-time to fit this in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Annnddddddd I thought I needed to be more fit so others would take me seriously.... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But when I finally got curious enough to actually listen & see what this opportunity was all about, I learned the truth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyone can do this and be successful with none of the above as a requirement! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I didn’t think I had a “story” but that’s just a lie I told myself, because everyone has a story. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And every story MATTERS. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏻Whoever you are and whatever you've been through - there are people who relate to YOU & your journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Success only depends on who you ARE, not what you look like. 💥 So, being at your ideal weight/fitness level is not necessary! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And I just started by simply sharing what was working for me in my own health/fitness journey! And you know what has kept me going & has me still here today?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Knowing that I could just help 1 person every day just by sharing my story & providing someone with HOPE! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have been so blessed by this opportunity in so many ways and it’s my mission to help others feel these blessings too!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you have EVER been even the tiniest bit CURIOUS about what the HECK I do, let’s talk!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Drop your favorite emoji below, Shoot me a DM!!

See that orange sweatshirt in the corner? She was my inspiration today. . . Mountain climbers have always been tough for me, even when I’m 💯 healthy. But now I need to concentrate on my back and concentrate on my shoulder and it sure doesn’t feel like progress is happening. 😩 . . Then you hear a little voice that says “go, maman!” And all the emotions come out. Full disclosure - there were even some tears. This is the REAL stuff that happens during transitions. . . She knows how I struggle to go slow and sees me working hard. She recognized it’s a gain for me to even BE in this position. ❤️ that girl . . So here’s the lesson: our workouts and transitions may look different, but the goal is the same. Show up every day!!! Keep doing your best, no matter where you are. Do it for you. Do it for whoever is watching. You never know who will inspire you and who you will inspire. . . Check my stories to hear her cheer me on! #lovemygirl #alwayswatching

Because nothing AWESOME comes from being comfortable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Taking a 100 workout challenge is outta my comfort zone. 💯 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Waking up between 4:45-5:00 WAS outta my comfort zone, but I am amazed at how much I get done before most people even open their eyes 👀 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Eating “clean” foods, measuring and tracking was annoying at first, but it’s given me a sense of awareness of what I put into my body I never had before. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Working out on vacation NEVER used to be in my comfort zone or even something I’d think of, but it’s become a habit I truly enjoy 😊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Choosing to do the things others make excuses not to are the reason I’ve been able to move myself forward. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, friends, if you want something different , you have to be ready to make BIG changes and get really uncomfortable, because that’s where the magic happens. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are you ready to get uncomfortable and join me for the #100workoutchallenge ??

So excited for her and the adventure she’s about to embark on but feeling a little sad for what has passed. If only I could have 1 more snuggle with that newborn, 1 more hug with that toddler, 1 more time to hold hands with my elementary school girl, 1 more giggle with that confident middle school girl and 1 more car ride to a tournament with my high schooler 💕💕💕 Ok that’s enough sadness - nothing but joy and excitement from here on out - at least until the car ride home tomorrow 😊 Oh the places she will go......

What do you notice between these two pictures? . And what does it have to do with forgiveness? The two don't seem to go hand in hand, right? Wrong. By forgiving others and ourselves we are releasing negativity (the crazed mess in the first photo).... and opening up space for positive energy (see the second photo). . I did something so profound during this exercise. I gave forgiveness to many people, though one in particular who has cause myself and my family so much pain throughout the years. For those who are familiar with my story, you will know who this is. And yes.... I have forgiven him for everything. I refuse to hold onto that negative energy any longer. I now see why Kathrin said what she did about this second lesson. Release yourself from the pain of your past. It does not mean they never did anything wrong. It means you are loving yourself enough to LET THAT SHIT GO!!!

One of my favorite podcasts is worth sharing....⠀ ⠀ Choose your hard.⠀ ⠀ The truth is, there will be challenges in EVERYTHING we do. Right?⠀ ⠀ When your toddler FINALLY is potty trained, youre like "YES!!! No more diapers, wipes, changing stations in public bathrooms, or changing dipes in the trunk. YESSS!!!!!"⠀ ⠀ And then....when they turn 6ish, they might start telling little fibs. They're TOTALLY self absorbed, tell on everything and everyone, and maybe there wetting the bed. Hard? Yep.⠀ ⠀ And then....they get into middle school....they might start telling bigger fibs & test your parent finesse. (But you got this :) ) They are TOTALLY self asborbed, tell on NO ONE, and social media is chasing them. Hard? Yep.⠀ ⠀ And you, mama. You have been desperately wanting to be accepted at your kids' new school, been wanting to stay home with those diaper-wearing babies, or maybe just want to get healthy and take care of you. Cuz you don't like the way you feel, you're overwhelmed, and you just. need. a moment. alone. Hard? Yep.⠀ ⠀ So when it comes to YOU...choose your hard. It sucks getting pictures taken when you feel like shit. It sucks being out of breath walking from your car to the front door of Target. And sometimes it sucks just getting out of bed.⠀ ⠀ BUT.....CHOOSE YOUR HARD. Will cleaning up your nutrition be hard? Yep. Will parking further away from the front to get in some more steps be hard? Yep. But ladies, that's when you start to FEEL better. So choose your hard.⠀ ⠀ Cheering for you 💕⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ #sisterlove #chooseyourhard #summernights #pandabun #eveningswim #thursdayeve #raedunnlove #summatime #michigansummer #michigangirl #michiganfootball #targetmom #flipflopseason #summerrunning #momofteenagers #momofteengirls #furmomlife #watermelon #firstgradeteacher #teacherlife #bestlifenow #authenticself #whitekitchencabinets #bambooflooring #shiplaplove #mommaoffour #summergardens #hydrangealove #freshcutflowers #peonylove

It’s tough to get up early especially when it’s dark out...⠀ ⠀ I have been consistently getting up at 6 am for two weeks now ⠀ ⠀ I am not a super here to do this by any means but here is what’s been helping me ⠀ ⠀ * set the phone(aka alarm)🚨 across the room (less tempted to hit snooze that way)⠀ *have a glass of water right next to your alarm ( drink it ASAP you are dehydrated this will help wake you up)⠀ *have your workout clothes ready (or better yet sleep in them😜)⠀ *have a glass of water in the fridge ready to mix my go juice 🥤 with (or have the coffee pot ready if you prefer)⠀ * go to bed with the mindset that you will be refreshed and ready to go at 6 am!⠀ ⠀ Do you use your phone as an alarm 🚨? I think we all do now don’t we?

Happy 11th birthday to my sweet Penelope Jade! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She is always ready for an adventure. She lives by Cinderella’s quote, Have Courage and be Kind. She is a sweet friend too. May she always stay that way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also, if I can teach one other thing, it would be to always love herself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, remember: Self love isn’t just talking kindly to yourself. It’s choosing yourself again and again, everyday. It’s keeping the promises you made to yourself because you are worth it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We love you so much!

I know I have asked you guys this before but what was the last thing your boss or CEO gave you? When is the last time you were told you were doing great job or were an asset to the team? What if every time they spoke to you, your confidence and drive for better increased? ... This graduation card was sent to my daughter from the CEO of the company whose products I promote and love. ... He doesn't know her, I have not met him..yet he took the time to invest in me, to find this information about my family and send an extremely encouraging card and decals. ... The possibilities are endless with this company. It will give you as much back as you put into it...guaranteed. Not to mention when you start your journey with ketones yourself you will be a better human! ... This is for people who like to create their own hours, earn cash monthly, have free prodicts shipped to your house or have cars paid for.😳😳😳 .. Yes all these things are possible! .. #dreamit #stayathomemom #momlife #workfromhome #momsofinstagram #sahm #stayathomemomlife #workingmom #mom #motherhood #family #momof #youtubemoms #love #bossmom #makemoneyonline #mommy #bitcoinusa #girlmom #residualincome #homeschoolmom #entrepreneur #homeschoollife #sahmlife #momoftweenagers #momofcollegestudents #momofteengirls #bhfyp

💀Well I killed my legs on this Monday. Thanks @jerichomcmatthews for a killer downbeat strength workout. .... If you give 💯to anything you do, you will get results. .... If you work hard at school, you get A’s. If you bust your butt at work, promotions or higher commissions are headed your way. .... Same goes for health goals, if you give 💯 to workouts and nutrition you, will see changes. Trust me I know 😉. Are you an all in person, or give up when the we hit a road block? #trusttheprocess#be100percent #workhard

How open with your teens are you ??? Mine would probably say I’m to open but that’s how I roll 🤣 so let’s talk about getting our Periods shall we Friends. I started mine on a family vaca at the beach 🤪 how about you ???? I think it’s safe to say the 99% of us probably started our periods some place other then at home right ? That’s why Livi and I recently put together a First Period Survival Kit that she can take on the go with her. As much as begged her to take a pic with the bag holding up her period panties she just wouldn’t do it Lame!!! I did however put together a full blog post of all the things we put in her bag. I’ll put a link in my bio and a swipe up on my stories so you can check it out!!! • • • • • #momofgirlslife #momofteengirls #oregonmom #oregongirl #momtruth #mymotherhood #stopdropandmom #honestmomconfessions #momskeepingitreal #thatrealmomlife #oregonblogger #bloggermom #firstperiodkit #dailyparenting #backtoschoolmusthaves

You see this picture... this is my family. To some it may look like we are the perfect, happy family. In some ways we are... We have our health which to me is the jackpot. But we have struggles like anyone else. I have 2 teenage daughters. That on its own is a challenge. At one point in my life, I remember I wanted my kids to follow the "perfect" path... what parent doesn't, right? And if I ever seen a child misbehaving or doing something that we have deemed as not acceptable to society, whatever that may be...i was like wow... where did the parents go wrong? Or they must be living in a "bad" environment. So after re-introducing myself to teenagehood...i have realized that my head was completely in the clouds and what a load of crap that I was telling myself. You see somewhere along the line of "growing up" I had lost exactly the path I took to get to exactly where I am. It's exactly what built my character and exactly who I am. And guess what... I would not change one bit of it... because the wisdom of it all is priceless. My husband and I both gave our parents a good run for their money ... and at the time we did not think it was a big deal...why would we? We were teenagers, who knew everything. Ha! As an adult and as a mother... I get it. We were assholes. And honestly I will apologize to my parents as long as I live. Essentially teenagers are just trying to figure it out and find their place on this earth. Yes it is an extremely frustrating stage and to be honest the hardest but yet most important stage of their life. What can be the hardest though.... is watching your child fall. Or do what society deems "bad"... But guess what... there is not one person at one stage or the other that has not swayed one way or the other. We are human. Not perfect. It's time to ditch the judgement of what we think should be.. and essentially let these kids figure it out. It essentially will make them stronger rather than cushioning the fall. This is also the hardest part, trust me. **more in comments.... ***
