Just in case anyone out there still thinks you can’t be a hot mess who can’t make great videos and still be a coach... here’s our workout from tonight in a time lapse video that features: - our cat who doesn’t know how to get outta the way - me, moving slowly, modifying the modifications - Curt, not realizing for most of the video that I was recording #duh - Baby A who normally would cheer us on but instead fell asleep as our workout went on ...and yet so far this year my coaching dollahs have covered our electric and gas bill and a lil fun jewelry at least!! 😊
“Cute outfit, Mom! It’d be a shame if someone.... spit up allllll over it just before we left for school...” 🙊 So yeah. That’s how our transition week is going. We were both so exhausted last night that I was dizzy and he fell asleep early and then slept for 10.5 hours. Needless to say, I’m really glad our workout program right now is 4 days a week and flexible... I needed a rest day and I was able to take it but still plan to finish this week of workouts before the weekend hits!
Breakfast for dinner? Yes please! I found these root veggie hash browns at ALDI... yum! Still carb-y but more veggies and fewer potatoes so I’ll call it a win 😊 👍
Yes, I pose for and take selfies of my baby boy and me. The snuggles, the cuddles, the smiles, the moments — they don’t last forever and I know I’ll miss them but more than that, I use these photos in the frustrating or tough moments to remind me of my WHY. I’ve always done what I do — work, work out, build our wellness business — for my family. My health, my time, and making sure we have our $$$ in line are the the biggest keys to giving our family everything we want for them. But, as we all know, having an infant around (no matter how many kids you’ve had, I think) is a strong reminder of what it is to be needed. There’s nothing he needs that he can do himself. His life is 100% dependent on us and these moments always remind me of that. So I’m going to keep taking and saving these selfies because everything, even a crappy workout or hearing “not now” from a potential customer, is another step in paving the road for him and his brothers and that, my friends, is all that matters. 💕
I’m going to have to modify like crazy still. I’m only #13weekspostpartum. I just started back to work and little man started daycare today. But we did it anyway. 4 days a week — we got this!!
New favorite lunch bag! Room for my packed food so I can stay on track and room to stash milk as I pump during the day!
Curt and I regularly hear from people who told us they've decided to make certain changes and yet it's almost always followed with but my schedule is really full or if I can make it work and a bunch of other excuses. Let's get real... Until you've dropped the ifs, ands, and buts, you haven't really decided anything. 🙅🏼 We know people who were too heavy to workout and found a way to lose 242 lbs (without surgery) or parents of so many kids 👧🏾👦🏻👶🏼👦🏼👧🏿👶🏽👧🏼 who make it happen despite having 7 kids and young families or moms who will never be fit again because who is once they're pregnant but crushed it despite giving birth to twins 👭👬👫or triplets. And don't give us other excuses... We've got plenty of other examples of committed warriors! 💪🏼✨ It's all in your mindset. 💁🏼Decide and then stop ⏹ the sentence there. You deserve it!
Let’s face it... making chocolate pudding look tasty in a picture is tough BUT not only was this delish, it’s all clean and will fit just about any of the meal plans we use in our Virtual Bootcamp! I’m definitely making this sometime this week — my mom made this for Valentine’s day dinner last week but it’s a great dish any day of the year! 😊 💕
HUGE THANK YOU to my mom for our birthday present — tickets to see Sir Elton John in his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour!! He was absolutely incredible and we’re definitely in awe of the entire performance!! 🎹 👓 #lovecuresall
