All smiles here but Noah is in a major meltdown mood lately😆 like every little tiny thing is a big huge deal. I know it’s just a phase, but it can still exhaust me to the point of needing to remind myself not to have a meltdown along with him some days 😂. If you’re in a phase where everything seems to be a struggle, here’s your reminder that it won’t last forever. So for now, Noah and I will learn and grow through the meltdowns. Because I’m sure there are things that he wouldn’t learn if we didn’t have to work through these melty times. And I know there are ways I wouldn’t grow as a parent or person without these experiences. Everything in life will shape us for the better or not. It depends on how we use the experiences. - ‘In the day of prosperity be joyful, and in the day of adversity consider: God has made the one as well as the other, so that man may not find out anything that will be after him.’ Ecclesiastes 7:14
Modifiers + tips on the videos today😁 A lot of nice core work in here if you’re mindful of using it To help you stabilize! Tap into that deep core with your breath through each movement. This is not a workout that needs a heavy weight🙂 Picking a weight, last few reps should be tough to do but you should still keep good form! ⭐️3-4 rounds :rest up to 1 min between rounds⭐️ •10 Hinge hold & curl R+L •8 Step out hinge to ovhd curtsy R+L 8 of each is 8 for that side •12 Split squat to front raise R+L •12 Hip Tap to row open R+L
The incredible joy. The ridiculous love. I hate that I didn’t know it before you were here. For anyone that doesn’t know, I wasn’t the most excited person to find myself pregnant. I was erred more on the side of terrified-worried-stressed-overwhelmed. And now I can not imagine my life without this precious guy. Even when he’s melting down or doing something I told him not to, I love him more than I could ever put into words. There are moments my heart feels like it could burst. I’m not sure I truly knew that feeling before. The unexpected thing that’s coming your way. That thing that might seem scary. That thing you don’t think you’re ready for. That could turn out to be the best thing you never knew you needed. I learned that when something unexpected is coming my way, worrying doesn’t add a thing to it. It only takes away. It delays our chance to embrace it. Happy Thursday friends!
Tips on video- Core work should be intentional! It’s not just going through the motions of a core exercise- the core should be engaging and engaging correctly with each rep so you get the most out of the work you are putting in! Your Best Core is so close to being done😬 where I’m go way more in depth on proper breathing, core engagement and lots more from why diastasis happens to how to really do a ‘kegel’. So many fun things! I can’t wait to share it! I’ll add a link in my story if you want to sign up to know as soon as it’s ready😃 ⭐️2-3 rounds. 45 second intervals : rest as needed between intervals⭐️ •Boat taps -Modify by keeping feet down and lifting one at a time •Table Plank -Modify by lifting up and down instead of holding •Extend and cross reach R&L
I am tired. I had fully intended to Sunday novel my heart out earlier in the day. I do enjoy that😆 but at 10 pm - I’m just popping in to wish you an amazing start to your week and to remind you that you’ve got whatever comes your way handled! You have after all, handled all your days and weeks so far💕 - “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7
Up on YouTube! And since I talk form there, no captions here this time😅 Also, you can do this with no band, no dumbbell, both or neither👌 Very important if you use a band though, make sure you aren’t letting it force your knees in. You should be pressing out against the band, glutes should be ‘on’ because of it. Share with a friend that would enjoy this!🙌🏼 ⭐️40 seconds work:10 rest x 4 rounds of each pair before moving on⭐️ - •Lateral wall with hop •Sumo Deadlift Knees and toes point the same direction, hinge! Lats engaged,feet think about spreading the ground,glutes pull you up - •Side lunges •3 count squat - •Squat pulse •Bridge(can sub hip thrust if you don’t want to get on the ground) my heels could be about a 1/4 in closer to my butt so my ankle is right below the knee at full extension. Usually if you put your fingertips to heels it’s about right. -

Modifiers & captions with tips for this one! Enjoy🙂 let me know if you use it!

You know the days where ‘why is this so hard today’ pretty much sums it up😆 that’s been me today. I was just having a struggle in almost everything I did. Especially the things I tried to do when Noah was asleep. It was Not a day where he was extra wild or crazy or emotional.. but I felt that way inside🤣 I just had this overwhelming feeling of needing a break that I wasn’t going to get🤷♀️ But not every day will be that way. And that is the wonderful thing about a new day. When we can’t seem to shake something one day, we have a fresh start waiting for us in the morning.. as long as we don’t carry the baggage from a tough day over to the next. I usually think of time as kind of sad. Noah growing up because time keeps passing etc. but today reminded me of a @mylesmunroe video I listened to once that talked about time as a blessing. Going further to say, if you had no time a back ache would be an eternal pain. So today I am grateful for God’s gift of time that brings a new day with a fresh start each morning🙂 Don’t get me wrong, I won’t wish a day away. But tonight, tomorrow’s fresh start sounds extra nice!
