⁣For the girl who is struggling, you are stronger than you think. Nothing in life can break you and if it does.. pick the pieces back up- keep going. ⠀
⠀
Don’t stop. Because if we let difficult times get the best of us, how will we ever be happy again? How will we be strong? Brave? ⠀
⠀
For our loved ones, for our kids & for our friends- stand back up and keep going stronger than ever. Don’t let life break you down.. let it shape you up and build you. ⠀
⠀
This too shall pass. ⠀

#foreverstatus, but especially today...
.
As a final birthday hurrah, some friends and I are going to a Prince-themed Roller Disco Party. You read that right 😂
.
So naturally costumes, sequins, retro-attire is required and never is my body dysmorphia so bad as in this situation when I see some slinky little sequin number meant for a 20-year old and sure as shit not gonna flatter a 40-year old.
.
At any rate, check out my stories tonite (and possibly the local hospital reports) to see how it all goes!

Here’s to being #foreveryoung!

Sushi anyone? What’s your favorite? .
.
Is sushi healthy for you? .
.
While fresh fish is a great protein source and can supply healthy fats the body needs, many of the things we put with or around it can really add up, calorie- and sodium-wise, for little nutritional value.
For example, the most common sushi item is a sushi roll. Sushi rolls are usually seafood and vegetables wrapped in white rice. The rice is mixed with vinegar and sugar and packed tight. “Just one sushi roll can contain a half cup to one cup of rice and usually 300 to 500 calories (for most specialty rolls), and a lot of people order two or three rolls. When you add mayonnaise-based sauces, fried sides, and/or sake, you’ve likely come close to your calorie needs for the day. If you dip your rolls in soy sauce you might save on calories, but just one tablespoon has almost 900 milligrams of sodium (almost 40 percent daily recommendation), not to mention the extra sodium in the sushi itself. Oof. 😳😱
.
.
So be mindful when you make your sushi choices. As for me? I’m sticking with my veggie rolls and some meat on the side🤷🏻‍♀️ #notafanofseafood

This is how I felt this morning when I woke up! My son had a terrible bloody nose last night. Then he had a nightmare and came into bed with me. Then he peed on me while we were sleeping. 😂🤦🏽‍♀️ I really just wanted to put the kids in school and go back to sleep. But I’ve made this new commitment to myself. So I figured out how to sign in and I figured out which workout program I was going to do. I managed to find my sports bra and I worked out! 🏋️‍♀️ Feeling pretty good! #workout #iworkout #weightlossjourney #hotmessmom #hotmessmama #gettingthere #onestepatatime #onestepcloser

Just living the life I want... .
To be honest, my bud and I have not been in good terms with each other. He is being extra needing and my pregnancy brain wants nothing to do with it. .
Has anyone ever experienced this? Did your animals need you more during pregnancy?

I get asked often how I am able to stay consistent with my workouts with the chaotic life I have.  Or how I am able to stay motivated and not just give in to my tiredness and skip my workout.
.
.
If I am going to be honest, just about everyday I want to skip my workout.  I am tired most of the time and let me tell you, sitting on the couch under a blanket with some snacks and watching Netflix sounds WAY better than a workout.  So how do I snap out of it and just get it done?
.
.
This picture, this is how.
.
.
It’s a screenshot of the stretch at the end of my workout yesterday.  That feeling of accomplishment that I got out of my head and did it; that feeling of pride that I can do hard things; those endorphins that take away a huge chunk of the stress of my day; and so much more.  I know that the feeling in this picture is something I want to feel more than skipping it.
.
.
Do you struggle with motivation? I got you.
Do you struggle with getting out of your head? I got you.
.
.
Trust me, if I can do it anyone can.  You don’t have to do it alone.  I am just a DM away ;)

🔥Side-rolls
🔥Muffin top
🔥Love handles 
Yeah—those are words we tell ourself often when describing this extra bit on the sides.
But why don’t we just simply call it SKIN?
Why don’t we call it BEAUTY?
Why don’t we EMBRACE it?
Why does it have to be seen as a negative?
....
For so many years I fought and battled my way through this... I thought these were UNACCEPTABLE 
I thought I looked GROSS
I thought I had to have a tight,flat, no extra skin body!
....
Those thoughts I was telling myself created a MONSTER! It made me think I was unworthy if I gained weight. It made me think I was UGLY if I had any extra skin and to be honest it was ruining my life! The negative thoughts I had about myself, my perception of what a “perfect body” was, was influenced by tv and magazines and social media and movies. I didn’t have IG/FB influencers telling me it was OK, I didn’t have the mindset of being healthy... my only goal was to be skinny and I would do anything to get there.
.....
Then something changed, I decided to lean into personal development and become part of an uplifting team of women!
During this process I was reminded of what it truly means to be HEALTHY and HAPPY!
I learned what it means to fuel your body with proper NUTRITION! 
I learned was it means to gain STRENGTH and confidence!
I learned what it means to love your body at all stages!
I learned to LET GO of the unrealistic ideas of how I thought my body should look and I learned to love my body the way it is!
I learned to EMBRACE the imperfections!
I learned it’s OK to gain healthy weight!
I learned it’s OK to wear shorts even when you have cellulite on your thighs!
I learned it’s OK to wear the bikini even if I don’t have a flat stomach!
I learned that I am TEACHING my daughter how to love herself just the way she is!
....
So here is your reminder today ladies... from someone who had been 106 lbs. a size 00 and obsessed over the number on the scale to a size 8-10 and 155 lbs...... I’m sooo much happier now that I’m no longer obsessed about how I look and rather now I’m obsessing about how I can teach others to love themselves just the way they are!💕
Be YOU!
Love YOURSELF!
Be KIND to others!
Be HAPPY!

USING POSITIVE PARENTING STRATEGY TO MANAGE CHILD BEHAVIOR 
After polling my friends about which parenting topics they wanted to read about, I learned that I’m not the only mom who struggles with kids who are sometimes stubborn. •
They asked for help dealing with this challenge in a positive way. It took me a while to figure out what kind of advice to give, because I honestly felt like I don’t knowhow anymore.
•
So I thought back to my training in play therapy and remembered that Garry Landreth (my favorite child-psychologist in the field) teaches about a method he calls Choices, Cookies, & Kids. •
His method involves offering choices instead of always telling your child what they should and shouldn’t do.

𝗗𝗶𝗮𝗴𝗻𝗼𝘀𝗶𝘀: 𝗛𝗮𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗺𝗼𝘁𝗼’𝘀 𝗧𝗵𝘆𝗿𝗼𝗶𝗱𝗶𝘁𝗶𝘀⁣
⁣
Yep, That’s the answer to my symptoms - hair falling out, incredible fatigue, 𝙛𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙠𝙞𝙨𝙝𝙡𝙮 rapid weight gain, brain fog, emotions all over the place, extreme temperature changes from hellishly hot to iceberg freezing cold, the extra dry skin, decreased appetite... let’s just say that it’s been a crazy ride. 🤪⁣
⁣
I’m 𝙜𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙚𝙛𝙪𝙡 to have an answer, and to know that I’m not just “in my head” and Imagining things.⁣
⁣
Treatment - (for now) No high stress/impact workouts because it causes adrenal fatigue, really lock in my nutrition, hopefully change my med dosage..... basically, there’s still lots to figure it out.⁣
⁣
Does it set me back? No, I don’t believe so. Just one more realization that everyone’s journey is unique to them! I’ll modify my workouts as needed, probably start our new Barre inspired program that releases in December..(perfect timing) and continue to nourish my body with complete dense nutrition and to share my journey to hopefully 𝘪𝘯𝘴𝘱𝘪𝘳𝘦 others. ⁣
⁣
I know I’m not the only person dealing with Hashimoto’s and if I can figure out how to best navigate this new journey with an autoimmune disease, then I can better help others do the same!⁣
⁣
If you’re struggling also, know that I see you! I’m cheering for you and I’m here to help when you’re ready. ⁣
⁣
Where are my Hashimoto’s warriors at? I’d love to connect and learn what’s working and not working for you! Feel free to shoot me a message!⁣

A few years ago as a new stay-at-home mom I was struggling with my identity in a big way.  I happily left my corporate life behind but quickly felt like MOM was my only identity.  Don't get me wrong - being a mom is my most important and cherished role and it will ALWAYS come first....but it was still a shock to my system.  I went from being surrounded by people, challenging work, stimulating conversation, making a good salary - - to isolation and sleepless nights with 2 kids under 2.  It was HARD and I was lost.  Enter zoloft.... I never would have guessed that I would find myself in the way I did.  That getting healthy would launch a whole business and open a world of opportunities.  It was WAY outside of my introverted little comfort zone but I did it and went all in.  It's been messy and complicated and perfectly imperfect, but I wouldn't trade a minute of it. .

Guess what??? I fought my way out of a pretty dark place and my identity has evolved.  It's no longer tied to my role as a mother *GASP*. I felt guilty writing that, and immediately tried to think of how to "soften" it because someone would take offense, but that's ridiculous!! I get to be a mom, and that's my favorite role, but I also get to be a lot of other things that bring me joy!  I'm also a wife, a friend, an athlete, a business owner, a CEO, a leader, a student, a mentor, a volunteer.  Wanting MORE doesn't make me any less of a mother....it just makes me happy and well rounded. .

So I'm not saying I have achieved perfect balance between work, motherhood, etc. because I'm still not sure that exists.  I'm always working on it, but in the meantime I'm fulfilled AND my kids get to see me wearing all of these colorful hats. .

If you find something that lights YOUR soul on fire you GO FOR IT.  Don't doubt yourself or what-if yourself to death. Just DO IT, and figure the details out along the way!

Pregnancy is rarely perfect. Birth can happen the opposite as planned. Breastfeeding is hard and requires more support than is often given. Babies typically don't care about our plans and expectations. These plans and expectations that go wrong can cause the depression or anxiety or intrusive thoughts many of us experience. We just wanted to say to all the women out there who didn't get the motherhood they planned for and had to grieve for what they thought it would be like, we see you. We would love for you to share your experience below. You are never alone here.
