“When you are willing to feel it, you will heal it.” I used to be pretty bad at handling my emotions. I’ve gotten better at it, but at times they still get the best of me. I am human after all. That quote has pretty much become my mantra that I say every morning since I miscarried. Realizing that I can’t push these feelings aside and that it’s ok to be sad, angry, move on, be happy, and sad again…I know it’s all part of the healing process. I’ve been pretty well for the most part, but for the last…

Anxiety + stress is a b**** I had quite a night. E fell pretty hard off her bed into a nightstand and then face first on to the hardwood. Which led to an ER visit and now headed to a dentist. She’s somewhat ok & thankfully didn’t have a concussion. If you’re a parent, you know how much it sucks to see your baby hurt. When there’s so much blood and you can’t tell where it’s coming from. Add anxiety & a child that hates going to the doctor… All I wanted this morning was junk food. I was seriously…

Crazy to think that was me a year ago. So much has changed for me since then, but the biggest and most important…my confidence! Fifty pounds down and I learned what it takes to get there. Simple nutrition, simple fitness, simple support, & dropping the excuses! Let’s get real. Aren’t you worth investing $4.66 a day?! My Fall in (Self) Love challenge starts on 10/26! Comment below “I’m interested” or private message me!

I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT! No, I’m not pregnant, silly people. I’ve kind of vague-booked before that I made a big goal for myself and my family, but I’ve shared what that is with only a few people. I am ready to tell the world because I have set fear aside (mostly, that’s what personal development is for :)) and know that when I really put myself out there and tell you all my goal, it will happen. I have set in motion the foundation and am working hard to reach it. So what is it? Well, you need a little…

***Warning! Long sappy post alert!*** Today was a very special day! I took Emma to check out a Montessori school that I’ve wanted to enroll her in. I know, that may not sound so special, but here’s the best part: I am paying for it with my paycheck from ONE week! Me! If I were not a Beachbody coach, this would not be happening right now. It’s the honest truth. Like everyone else, we have undergrad & grad school loans to pay, along with the everyday stuff & 3 kids. So the fact that I can do this and pay…

Feeling sassy! ;)

Before the summer started, I promised myself that I would wear my first ever bikini. While some of that is because I wanted to prove to myself that I can be a fit mom of three, but the biggest part was that I knew when I finally put that bikini on, it meant I has reached the point where I was most confident in myself. I got into that swimsuit, dgaf what others thought, and played on the beach and got in the water with my kids. This picture shows a physical transformation, but I am most proud of my…

girls

Honesty time: I LOVE my girls and the fact that I am lucky enough to stay home with them. However, I felt like there was just more I needed to do. I was brought up to be independent, and from the time I could, I worked, so that I wouldn’t have to depend on anyone. It was so hard for me to let that part of myself go after I had my first child, but daycare is too expensive and I didn’t want to miss you on those precious first years. I mean, who would regret that? But, I started…
