Big things happened for us today. 🙌 Mama got her brows done and Henley was along for the ride. This was our FIRST real big girl trip out of the house! I'd been thinking about this big trip all week. 😂 Okay... So my car died when I went to leave and I had to have my neighbor jump it. So that almost had me in tears. 😭 It's scary leaving all alone for the first time! I worried about everything... is she fed enough? Is the carseat right? What if she cries the entire time at my appointment? Why am I hitting EVERY red light?!!??! But we still did it!!! #momwin We then ventured over for a mama & babe meet up! I met the mamas of these other babes while we were all pregnant. We are all first time mamas and we all have the same midwife. Today was the day we all met up AFTER our babes arrived. It was surreal. 🙈 And here they are... in the order they arrived into this world... 10.5 • 6 • 4.5 • 3.5 weeks ago.

Papi’s night out vs Mami’s night in 😉 We HAVE to take care of ourselves ladies. In my case I did it in true mommy fashion: Relaxing while catching up on some baby reading... just a tad bit behind, 5 months to be exact 🙈🤦🏻‍♀️😂 Happy doing whatever makes you happy ladies! ❤️ Now lets hope the baby doesn’t wake up... . . . #breastfeedingmom #mom #momlife #solids #breastfeeding #lactationsupport #breastfeedingmom #breastfeedingstruggles #liquidgold #breastmilk #formula #grateful #fedisbest #breastisbest #1yearold #healthymommy #healthybaby #postpartumjourney #breastfeedingjourney #breastfeedingbaby #workingmom #momblogger #momblog #momstruggles #relaxing #hotbath #happyheart #happyhome #happyfamily #momofthree #blessed

⭐️Thankful Thursday⭐️ ______ As I sit here about to jump on a call with some other leaders on our team, I’m amazed at how much I have changed just within the past few months. These ladies (and more) push me every day. Because of them, I step out of my comfort zone, I push harder than ever, and I do things I never thought I would. Their friendships mean the world to me. They cheer me on, from miles away. _______ I am so glad I took a leap of faith with coaching. I am finding my joy in helping others and being apart of this team! I have grown so much as a person, not to mention am healthier and happier than ever. And if that’s not enough, I’m helping support my family financially. _______ Today, not only did my pay check pay for ONE week of daycare, but it covers the next TWO weeks of daycare. Just for doing what I love. For connecting with other women and helping them find their healthiest and happiest selves. _____ #boymom #christianmom #teachersofinstagram #teacherlife #dogmom #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #fitnessgoals #athomeworkouts #fitmom #fitmomsinspire #cleanfood #postpartumjourney #thirdgradeteacher #encourage #momlife #bebrave #joyfullyfit #rainbowbaby #findyourtribe #healthandfitnesscoach #cleaneating #weightloss #postpartumweightloss

18.5 MONTHS This is what life looks like today after choosing to show up 18.5mo ago a 6wk postpartum Mama to my fourth baby! That Mom on the left had moved 4 weeks earlier to live with her inlaws while house hunting. Moving two weeks postpartum not recommended. I had every freaking excuse. Every road block you can imagine. I had it thrown my way. I chose to stop letting all of that be excuses, and just start taking small steps each day to be the best Mom.. to feel good in my own skin. To be STRONG. It hasn’t been easy, people. Life keeps happening. I have gone from 4:30am alarms, to 11pm workouts, to mid day, to mid morning, and all between just to make it work. I have successfully completed 9 workout programs in that time, 3 being one week ones. I am currently in the process of knocking out a program that I believe has already given me my biggest mental shift. I did this all from home, dancing around kids when I have to. I joined a gym in January. I wanted something new. Well... that new became me with my home programs streaming from a gym. 🤣😂 I can’t stay away from them. I am thankful I can do them anywhere, but I cancelled my membership today. As a busy Mama to four babes, this is just what works for me! This chick on the right was admiring major leg gains today. 😏 I cried.. not gonna lie. I know other moms can understand... we collect the inner thigh fat. Well... I have done all the squats from here to the moon, jumped ropes, lunges, you name it, I have done it. These legs are hard work. These legs are strong. I worked so hard, and will continue to do so. I want to feel like this each day. I want to be proud of what I see! You should too! If you are ever looking for a place to start, don’t hesitate to ask me!! To all you Moms like me who are busy, have little time, and are just constantly on the go from the time your feet hit the ground in the AM. I have got you. I get it. YOU MATTER. YOU ARE WORTHY. Redo Day 30/80 complete! 🙌🏼

Anyone else with toddlers have to hide the fruit on top of the fridge?! 😒 . Since these kids got brave climbing on everything, they were getting into the fruit and eating it all or eating bites and putting them back. 😩 . We finally decided to put them up high lol Now hopefully they don't wise up and climb on the counters! . . . #vegastoddler #toddlersofinstagram #toddlermommy #toddler #toddlersofig #parenthoodchronicles #mommyoftwo #motherhoodlife #motherhooduncensored #savethefruit #toddlereats #climbers #lifewithlittles #postpartum #postpartumjourney #havekidstheysaid

Today has been CRAZYYY! We had 3 appointments (one that I completely forgot about 🤦‍♀️) 2 errands we ran And I have been fighting a bad headache since I woke up this morning. My lack of sleep is catching up to me and I’m just worn out. So far no workout because of it and I was just told we’re heading over to the in laws for dinner tonight😊 so it probably is not going to happen today. Normally I would beat myself up about it but I’ve stuck to this program and have done so good and sometimes LIFE happens and for me it’s happening now. I’m hoping tomorrow I’ll wake up, feeling refreshed and a lot better. We’re trying sweet potatoes with Lynlie tonight (video to come😉) and I’m really hoping it will help fill her belly up before we nurse for bed enough that she may sleep better 🤞 we got her adjusted after her shots today so I’m hoping tonight will be a better night. In the mean time, isn’t she just the sweetest 😍 • • • • • • #girlmom #momofgirls #newmom #stayathomemom #momlife #momofthree #momprenuer #momsofinstagram #mommmylife #motherhood #busymom #momboss #postpartum #sahmlife #wahm #wahmlife #babywearing #breastfeeding #postpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #breastfeeding #postpartumweightloss

Does 5 weeks count as a #throwbackthursday ? Ehhh who cares 🤷🏼‍♀️ . guys these pictures are seriously 5 weeks apart! That’s it. from the beginning of my new workout up until Sunday 🙌🏼 . I’ve done nothing you can’t do! Follow a workout routine everyday, drink a shake, and follow a specific meal plan that is laid out for you! What type of food to eat, when to eat it, and what time! Seriously easy peasy.. and best of all if you follow it it works 🙌🏼 . . . . . #postpartum #momofthree #postpartumjourney #fitmom #momofboys #boymom #toddlers #kids #eat #fitlifestyle #fitlife #boys #boymom #momofboys #momof3 #toddlerlife #momlife #toddler #toddlermom #toddlersofinstagram #motherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram #momsofinstagram #sahm #wahm #mommy #boyslove #fitmom #fitmama #fitwife

Wearing leggings daily because you like being relaxed - totally cool. . Wearing leggings daily because you don’t like the way your body looks and feels in real clothes - totally not cool. . I’ve been on both sides of this. I used to hide under high waisted leggings and the perfect style shirt to cover those stubborn love handles. I used to make Audrey stand in front of me for photos instead of next to me. God forbid I take a picture without my hand on my hip to help my arms look slimmer. . Then my high school friend showed me this super simple solution. She promised the home workouts would be short (but effective), the superfood smoothie would help my cravings and energy level (but still taste amazing), and that even introverted me would L O V E her online support group. . That was almost 4 years and 10% body fat ago and I promise you the same thing. It still works because it’s REAL, it’s sustainable, it’s FUN this way (no seriously)... even 2 pregnancies later #cantstopwontstop 🤰🏻🤰🏻💪🏼 . Stop hiding in your leggings. Bust those gams out this spring. I’m taking 5 NEW ladies into our March group and the spots will go fast. Message me or check the link in bio if you want to see if it’s a good fit for your goals 💜 . The time will pass anyway, babe 😘 . . . . . . . #6monthspostpartum #fourthtrimester #2under2 #twoundertwo #secondtrimester #thirdtrimester #summerbaby #winterbaby #decemberbaby #julybaby #19weekspregnant #20weekspregnant #21weekspregnant #8monthspregnant #1yearold #mummytummy #sopregnant #postpartumjourney #postpartumfitness #postpartumbelly #postpartumdepression #transformation #tbt #throwbackthursday #beforeandafter #babynumber3 #fitpregnancy

You pretty much need 4x4 on your stroller to get out for a walk this winter 😂 luckily ours has big wheels so we made it through this just fine 👌 and Dre must have enjoyed the bumpy ride because he was giggling the whole way haha #canadianmom #canadianwinter #fitmom #getoutdoors #snowfordays #myjourney #momswhorun #momstrong #postpartumjourney

I didn’t choose the double stroller life. The double stroller life chose me. ✌🏽 . We seriously pushed off getting a double stroller for sooo long because they’re so expensive, but we finally broke down and did it. I’m obsessed with it too! . Kids are happy. Mamas happy. Which makes dad happy. The world is a better place when I know my babes are secured when I’m out and about, especially on my own as Huddy gets more and more adventurous. . Just in time for these gorgeous spring evening walks! 🙌🏽☀️

One of my fellow coaches/friends posted the above quote in our group this morning and it really hit home for me. I was talking to a good friend yesterday about my "why"- why I chose to become a health and wellness coach, why I added this into my already busy schedule. My answer is simple- I had no other choice! I was so filled with confidence and positivity from my own experience in groups and with the program that I couldn't help but find every way I could to tell others about it. It was like something woke up inside of me and I was filled with passion to have another avenue to help people, and specifically women, find themselves- whether for the first time, again after having babies, while going through the aging process, after and during facing health issues, etc- through every different phase of life. I want women to feel STRONG and CONFIDENT as we empower each other and work together to find BALANCE, PEACE, and SELF-ASSURANCE. And if I can help just ONE, it is worth annoying you all with my health and fitness posts. 😉😁 #postpartumjourney #postpartumfitness #fitmom #fitmama #findingbalance #athomeworkouts #athomefitness #stayathomemama #stayathomemom #workingmom #postpartummentalhealth

In honor of #tbt today I asked the ladies👯 in my 80 day bootcamp to share one thing that has changed since starting this challenge 6 weeks ago. • When I tell you that it's NOT just about the physical💪 results, I mean it! Challenging your body can be the catalyst to change your life. Check it out: • "I have found other ways of dealing with the stress than my Thursday night glass or two of wine." "• "My insomnia is just a memory." • "I sleep like the dead and I don't crave those just before bed snacks!" • "I wake up everyday, mostly before my alarm at 4:30 a.m. rested" • "My relationship with my husband is more solid!" • "I am vegetarian!" • "Made me a priority. 1- established a dedicated time to exercise during the week 2-adjusted my grocery shopping day so meal planning is easier." • For me, apart from kicking my cheese addiction and learning how to eat for optimal energy throughout the day, I have rediscovered the FUN in fitness and clean eating and, well....LIFE💕. • If you could change something in your life right now, what would it be?👇

If you would have told me that in 4 months I would go from feeling weak, self-conscious, unhealthy, and without purpose... to feeling this strong, healthy, confident, proud, determined & empowered.. That I would lose over 20lbs and 16inches.. and never have to starve.. learn what foods were good for my body & find new, delicious favourites.. enjoy eating without feeling sick.. That I could progressively work up to exercising for an hour a day, doing fun activities at home.. after a c-section, with a new baby!.. And that I could help other people start their transformations, too! Just by continuing my own health journey that I’ve fallen in love with.. Well, 4 months ago I would have called you crazy! But today, I’d be apologizing for that comment for how wrong I was. Don’t fake your happy; find your happy, and live a life you love. ✨ #health #wellness #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #balance #inspiration #fitnessmotivation #motivation #postpartumfitness #postpartumjourney #postpartumbody #momlife #momboss #strength #selflove #selfcare

✨POSTPARTUM BATH✨ I won an Instagram contest earlier in my pregnancy from @medicine.ethereal for her gorgeous postpartum herbal set. I’ve made sure to practice some level of self-care every day since Mila’s birth. And it’s not easy, but I know that it’s more important now than ever before. Exclusively breastfeeding on demand, co-sleeping, recovering from labor emotionally and mentally, and hormonal changes make self-care challenging, but especially necessary. We live in a world that’s typically not conducive or supportive to new mamas getting the time, space, rest, help, love, and respect she needs. I’m really grateful that I made a decision to read lots of books, listen to podcasts, and talk to women that understood the importance of the fourth trimester. // ✨ I couldn’t wait to take my first postpartum bath (in general, assuming I love baths since we had a waterbirth 😍)with this herbal blend for perineal healing, hormonal balancing, and relaxation. So excited to get some more uses out of this giant satchel. // ✨ . . . . . . . . #postpartum #thefourthtrimester #fourthtrimester #selfcare #newmama #postpartumjourney #postpartumcare #wombyn #womban #womblove #naturalmama #holisticmama #birthinspiration #mindfulmama #consciousparenting #womenempowerment #womenempoweringwomen

Sometimes a picture pops up and you’re reminded not just how far you’ve come on your #postpartumjourney but also how far you’ve come in life. 2009 —> 2018 Married almost 1 year —> Married almost 10 years No kids —> 2 kids via c-section All of us can change whenever we decide but only we can be the ones who make that choice.

2 NEW BLOG POSTS ⬆️ WITH guides for my fellow expectant & PP mamas, it’s LINKED in my BIO! 😘 . I get asked for regularly for my Fit Pregnancy & Fit PP Must Haves, which have made ALL the difference in my recovery & making this second pregnancy and PP adventure WORLDS better than my first. . A pregnancy & postpartum journey is such a whirlwind of high highs and low lows (thank you, hormones ;) ) The lists & links I put together, along with my daily actions helped me get back to feeling more like MYSELF again. . Any new mama can tell you that in these first few months as you're adapting to your new role in life as a mom (or mom again), between the vast change in your body & hormones, and the sleep deprivation you feel like most days you're having an out of body experience. . And while I absolutely wanted to prioritize soaking up all these precious first moments with my babe, it was also VERY important for my overall health and wellbeing to have a plan for me too!! . Getting back "into shape" after this 2nd pregnancy, had less to do with my "physical results" or needing to feel pressured to fit back into my clothes right away, and EVERYTHING to do with setting myself up mentally & physically to endure all the ups and downs of newborn life in the healthiest way possible. . For these reason I have made sure to be purposeful in my approach to my postpartum bounce back, so that I... 1. Didn't.... ( CONTINUED ON BLOG LINKED ABOVE c/ PRINTABLE LISTS & LINKS)

Yesterday’s walk was a success!! It was so insanely nice out, and the wee-man-who sadly missed most of it because he falls asleep almost immediately every time he’s in his stroller- seemed to have a great time! Also, this was us when we got home and about five seconds later, zzz! 😴😴 he’s too funny! 🤪😂😘 #nyc #centalpark #newmom #baby #babyboy #postpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumfitness #postpartumjourney #walking #uppababyvista

“Do you ever meet someone and wonder how you ever got by without them?” 💙 #bestfriends . . Poor babe is under the weather again..I’ve heard it’s common though when they start to regularly be around other kids. He nursed until 23 months so it’s been kinda new and sucky thing the past few months! Probably heading back to the drs to make sure we’re not getting bronchitis and/or the flu again 😷 . For everyone asking, the tubes in his ears have been great so far! With the amount of congestion he has right now he would’ve definitely had another one and he hasn’t gotten one since the surgery 🙏🏼

We definitely enjoyed getting some much-needed Vitamin D in this afternoon! ☀️ . The kids enjoyed LOTS of outdoor time and I had to bribe them to come in because it’s not THAT warm and their poor little faces were all red! 😬 . I sure treasure these times with my kiddos 💗 . Been making an attempt to just soak up these “everyday” moments while I can, and to not get caught up in being “busy.” . I certainly have the 2 best jobs! 💕 . . . @gap @disney

🌸Join us as we journey into the delicate #4thtrimester of #postpartum.🌸We recall traditional practices from #Mexico, #Thailand, #Mesoamerica to support the #mother and birthing folks through postpartum. In this way we can connect with ourselves and our #community, nourish our minds, bodies and spirits, and align ourselves with the center of our being as we walk into #motherhood. . 🌸 🌺 🌸 . We invite you to a day of Traditional Healing~ yoni steams, flower baths, a warming oil application and a bengkung belly bind placement/teaching. All newborns are welcome and encouraged~~we dance with their needs. we will provide warming and nourishing foods to support our journey. A belly bind and a salve is included to take home and continue your practice. As well as a full informational packet about the practices and how to perform them at home. Please RSVP as soon as possible space is limited. . 🐚 🌾 🌽 . The delicacy of the postpartum period has been forgotten <> Most culture’s traditions have also been practically erased >We are on a prayer to remember how to take care of this time in a mother’s life. To remember what it is to come together as a community and support a mother ~ and ultimately, the life of a child. We stand on Grateful ground to those traditions who have kept their practices strong through colonialism and this long period of disconnect. If you know something about your culture’s traditions please share! ~~In Gratitude @wombblossom_birth and @sembrandomaiz__doula

Hands down the best chia seed pudding I have ever made. The dates make it caramel like. Topped with a little chocolate cherry granola and some shredded coconut flakes 🙌🏼 #vegan #plantbased #dessert

Wrapping the abdominals after birth has been practiced for hundreds of years throughout the world but we have somehow, steered away from this ancient tradition in the western society. - Many say that wrapping the abdominals will cause a weak core. - Others say that not wrapping hinders recovery and increases the chances of injury. - There is some truth to both sides that’s why it’s important to pair wrapping with proper restorative exercises so you can create internal support while being supported on the outside. . . .

Just diving into this book and can already tell it will be a book I recommend to patients and my friends. I think all of us moms fail to recognize the significance of this postpartum period and what we need to do for ourselves! #39weekspregnant #chiropractic #momlife #coloradomom #alwaylearning #lafayetteco #louisvilleco #pregnantmama #4trimester #fourthtrimester #gaiahealth #goddesstheory #takecareofyourself #postpartumbody #postpartum #postpartumjourney #loveyourself

While it does feel great, I can’t get both of my forearms down, so it doesn’t make for a pretty picture. 😅 I have thankfully seen some #instayogi pics of forward folds with hands like this.

My mini #groceryhaul from @wholefoods and @traderjoes with @clean_foodie_ww also got a few other goodies that I posted in my story! So excited to try out all these yummy goodies! What are your favorite things to get at these stores? I think I'm most excited about the @iheartkeenwah toasted quinoa flakes! I love everything from this company and I've been wanting to try these!

Moments like these 💗 . Out of everything that coaching has provided for my family and I, these are my favorite! TIME everyday with both of my favorite little humans. Being there for the milestones, the cuddles, and the adventures. 🙌🏻 . I never thought time freedom would be possible from a “side gig” like this. But if you are willing to put in the WORK, it is totally possible 👊🏻👊🏻 . Now, I work in the “Mom cracks” of my day. The pockets of time throughout the day when the babies are sleeping, before they are up, when they go to bed. & all of the time in between- that is reserved for them! . I’m ready to add 5 new ladies to my team who would like to be personally mentored by ME and learn how this could be a reality for you too ❤️ Fill out the application (link in my bio) if you would like to be considered for one of those spots! . #breastfeeding #postpartum #mealprep #boymom #healthyish #girlmom #donutlover #postpartumfitness #healthyfood #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #cleaneating #babywearing #sahm #positivethinking #mondaymorning #healthychoices #choosehappy #lovebeingamomma #nutrition #toddlermom #birth #winelover #pregnancy #momlifebelike #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #postpartumweightloss

Some days Pancho plays quite nicely on the floor and some days he screams for me to hold him my whole workout. But I guess it's good for me to have some extra weights right 🤷🏼‍♀️☺️💪🏽 @fit.moms.of.ig @home_squats @home.exercises #legworkoutvideo #meagansfitmomlife
