Happy Wednesday! Today my knee hurt a little, probably from all the cleaning yesterday. So I just added some pressure to help out, nothing serious! I'm so excited, so many goodies coming in October!! 😍

Felicity, with my favorite snack! I used to eat a bag of potato chips everyday. I just like to be eating... All day. My nutritional shakes have killed most of my bad cravings. But when I really need something to munch on, baby tomatoes are where it's at! Cholesterol and sodium free, high in fiber, low in fats plus, super yummy!! 😍

Just a compilation of our dorky selfies! These are all from yesterday, I just completely forgot to post them! Parenting is a joy that goes beyond words. It's also the hardest job though. I wish I had her endless energy. 😅

Better late than never! Felicity has been so fussy lately. It's probably teething, but she won't really sleep unless she's next to you. A lot of trouble staying asleep in her own room lately. She was doing so well before the vacation! ☚ī¸ It probably threw her off, to be asleep in the same room as us for a week. Ah well, today was dirty 30, and I actually really love this program! One of my faves.

Am I right? 😂 I actually found this online, and it spoke to me too much to not share with you guys. ❤ī¸đŸ‘ It might be hard, but we've all got this! đŸ’Ē

No quitting, no defeat! đŸ’Ē I'm so excited to start the week with this mindset! Monday, bring it! ❤ī¸

DON'T FALL BACK INTO BAD HABITS! It's hard to find motivation as the days get colder and darker... It's easy to overindulge on comfort foods... Adding on that, the Fall show lineup is starting again! Did you know that 30 minutes of your day is 2% of your time? It sounds a little better when you see it that way. I enjoy myself so much during my workouts, they go by so quickly! I'm always in a great mood afterwards too! We have a group starting on Monday and I'm super excited! It's the same program that got me back on track 4 months postpartum. (I had a C-section) We all do the same workout program, we drink the same delicious super food shakes and we rejoice in each other's victories. I've you've been wanting to start, but unsure of how, this is a great starting point. ❤ī¸

My girl has been so clingy lately. I'm starting to relish simple things like, sitting without a tiny human on me, or using my phone while she's asleep, because no one is grabbing at my phone finally. We still have our fun though. 😄 ❤ī¸ She's just so damn active for a seven month old. It's seriously insane. 😅 She only sleeps for roughly 10 hours a day. She just wants to be a part of everything.

Halfway through, I switched to wearing shorts because it was too damn hot inside. 😂 Leg day today! My thighs have lost so much weight! My shorts are so loose now!! 😮

Getting real here, and throwing it back to these photos. I took these a few months postpartum when I was finally able to love myself again. This is me. When I get anxious, I have the bad habit of biting my nails. I was definitely anxious in this photo, knowing that I would be revealing my scars in such a public way. But for me, it was all part of the process. I always wanted a baby, I NEVER wanted a C-section. My pregnancy was hard but labour was harder. We were in and out of the hospital for 6 days. It all started after we got a stress test done, because I was 41 weeks pregnant. My girl just didn't want to be evicted. 😂 It made me so angry and depressed! I was fine until I hit 40 weeks. Anyway, at the stress test, her heart rate never slowed down. We were there for an hour in a half. The doctor was worried so she told us to go to the hospital. We sat there for another four hours, with me attached to a machine. Telling us Felicity's heart rate and my contractions. I was actually in early labour, but I never felt the contractions. We were sent home and told to come back in the morning for an ultrasound. When we got it, we found out that her amniotic fluid were low, so I was immediately induced. Two hour after induction, we were home and my contractions were HORRIBLE. I had back contractions, I couldn't eat, sleep or even sit. I was constantly moving because of the pain. Time went by so quickly. We went back to the hospital at 3am. Sitting in a car, with all of the bumps on the road and contractions was probably the most torturous experience of it all. The rest of it all is a blur for me. I got the epidural as soon as possible, they couldn't get it in, it took them 7 tries and roughly 20 minutes. It wasn't painful, I'm just completely horrified of needles. The next few days went by so fast, I wasn't allowed to eat in case I needed surgery, so I was pretty weak. I also couldn't feel from the waist down, so when I was ready to push, I couldn't. We tried for a few hours, but her heart rate started declining, so I was sent in for an emergency C-section. I bawled my eyes out the entire time. *The rest in comments*

Being a parent, it's a wonderful mix of amazing and terrifying. 😋 It's so much different than I ever expected it to be!! It's the biggest journey I'll ever be on, and by far the most important. I'm so eternally exhausted, and happy. ❤ī¸

Even in Canada, this was a huge and painful shock. I remember that day very vividly. I was only 8 at the time. I woke up for school and heard something on the news about the first tower. However, my mom turned the TV off and rushed me out the door. When I got to school, everyone was talking about it. I just remember feeling shock and disbelief. So many lives were lost, so many families left with holes in their hearts. It's a horrible tragedy. We will never forget: Those heroes who gave their lives for the sake of others. The hero's who still live today. The survivors of that terrible day or the innocent lives lost in the unexpected chaos. Today, we remember. ❤ī¸

I'll be going live, talking about upcoming changes and answering any questions. Feel free to comment any topic suggestions as well! ❤ī¸

No filter, this proud mama is taking in all of this beautiful cuteness! Seven months old, I can't hardly believe it's been so long! She amazes me everyday. 😍

This Monday I want to remind myself and all of you, that we have the power to make a change. If you feel stuck, push those fears and doubts aside and start taking steps to the future you want. It's not always easy, and it takes time, but you can do it! ❤ī¸

Unwinding with some yoga, while Jesse watched Felicity! My cat Fae, decided to join in. 😄

Alright, truth: It took a lot of effort to follow through with my two workouts today. I really wanted to just be a couch potato.. 😂 But, I just finished and I feel amazing! It was totally worth the effort. 😍

We are all capable of so much! 😍❤ī¸
