My other half. My better half. The calm to my storm. More than nine years together, and every time I’m away for work I miss you more than the last time. How blessed am I to be married to my very best friend? .
I waited a long time to find my person. I wanted to be self-sufficient and able to provide for myself so that I knew I was looking for someone who would complete my dream, but not someone who just had to “provide” for me.
Once I had the life I loved, then I found my person. And man oh man was the wait worth it. This man loves his kids more than life itself and literally does everything he can for them, which is exceptionally hard when I travel! He loves me completely, with my strengths and faults (though there are few 😉). I’m forever grateful for him. .
While our relationship is natural, we always work on it. We make sure to make time for each other, even when life is crazy and we’re exhausted we spend time together every day. Inevitably, we fall asleep 🤣 but the effort is always there. .
The great relationships in your life? Nurture them. It will only help your bonds grow stronger. ❤️❤️
Two more days until I see this hottie! 🥰

Same outfit 1 year difference. Left pic is last year right pic is today, I say I've maintained rather well this past year which was always my biggest struggle in the past. Here's to another year 🥂
My daily shake with a side of “You Gotta Eat Here!” Yes I have a little addiction to watching cooking shows and drinking my daily dose of nutrition 🥤
Just another protein shake you ask??? HELL NO!! Does your protein shake 🥭 have anti aging properties, support cellular regeneration and a healthy heart?? 🥬 support health & vitality?? 🍑 help your body adapt and respond to the effects of stress?? 🍉 help with nutrient absorption, support regularity and healthy digestion?? Not to mention taste great (4 flavours) and even comes vegan!! If you’re looking for something more than a protein shake we should chat 😊
This is something I am trying to learn to do more of. Same as loving what you HAVE instead of hating what you DON’T have.
Why we feel it’s ok to self hate but then turn around and compliment EVERY other woman on social media for how beautiful they are.
Do we really think that poorly of ourselves?? And where did we learn this behaviour?? So right here and right now I’m making an oath to myself. I will write down 5 things I LOVE about myself and my life EVERYDAY for the next 30 days. I’m told practicing gratitude actually works so I’m putting it to the test!! Here’s my first five
1. I love my smile
2. I love Isaac’s laugh...it always makes me laugh
3. I love Brooklyn’s snuggles...they are the best
4. I love when James makes me coffee ☕️...it’s SOOO good
5. I love our pool....sorry but summer is on my mind lol
Who else wants to play along?? It’s time to make some changes and that time is NOW ❤️👍 #selflove#gratitude#30days#strongmommy#makingchanges#timeisnow#momoftwo#nomoreselfhate#loveyourself#youareworthit#youmatter#imatter#starttoday
On the international day of LOVE is it too cliche to talk about relationships? <3
My mentor @johnmaxwell has said that "People’s can typically trace their success and failures to the relationships in their lives. We are defined by our relationships.” and I couldn’t agree more.
As I reflect on the relationships I’ve had with people - family, friends, and coworkers - neighbors, acquaintances and such … I can totally see how this is true.
When I’ve felt trapped or stuck or bad about myself or just not in a good place in life it’s usually because I’m being influenced by the people around me.
Consuming myself with gossip, negative news, complaining, with people who always feel overwhelmed and underappreciated. What you focus on you create more of.
When I think about my greatest successes in life it’s been when I’ve surrounded myself with positive uplifting and encouraging go oriented people.
This healthy living journey has not always been easy, but it is always worth it! Especially since I’ve gained so many amazing friends, improved the relationships of those that were already in my life and learned to have a better relationship with my God & myself.
Maybe the relationships you have with people around you have not been the most rewarding, positive or productive as you’d like them to be. That’s okay b/c you can always improve in this area. You can always work to build your relationship skills.
If you’re looking for a tribe to link arms with and make some changes. I know of a few that would like to help you create positive change in your life. 💕
I’ve got 2 spots left in my coach mentorship this month, we’d love to have you!
We love this photo because it shows that even though you have children that are young it doesn't have to stop you from traveling. The largest and deepest concern most women and men is that life stops when you have a baby. I think that this amazing mom Chelsea really exemplifies how great life with children can be as is it often only the tough times that are displayed. This photo encompasses something really beautiful. Thank you @whereweadventure for sharing your wonderful life to all of these families that follow you. #mommyinspo
Sam is ten months postpartum and getting stronger by the day!
With this being her second child, she has found shifting the weight has been much more difficult this time around but with the guidance of our personal trainers @everfitt and @ollerby and tracking her progress with our body composition analysis, she is really feeling empowered by her results!
She’s feeling stronger and more energised to try and be the best momma she can be! Every little bit helps, right!? 💪🏻💯 When she started she was only able to do one flip with a spotter! Now she can easily do five!
Come on in and say hi!

Just a few reminders.
It takes time.
You need to show up every day.
You need to follow the plan.
Trust the process.
It’s worth it.
You’re worth it.
Give it time ❤️
CHANCES ARE YOU HAVE BEEN HURT BEFORE? 😢
Been in pain before? Struggled, cheated on, betrayed, suffered heartaches before?😩
How did you feel then? Awful, hurtful, painful, horrible, unexplainable right?😱
I’ve been there before as a child & as an adult during my divorce with 3 young girls . I’ve never thought I would overcome such painful experience. Much less I never thought I could even share it with anyone.😭Thank God it’s the past I so ❤️ my life even better!💃
If you’re experiencing any pain, I feel you & empathize with you. When I was going through it, I had to redirect my focused on my kids ❤️ for me, their sanity & well being. My world was shattered & didn’t know where I was going. I wanted to save the marriage even if I was betrayed. I didn’t feel strong at that time but my kids ❤️for me, close friends support & my ❤️ & trust in the Lord kept me going.🙏🏻
Know that only time will heal your broken ❤️. These experiences has empowered me & made me even stronger, relentless, resilient & unstoppable for awhile now! -💃
Use any kind of bad experience to propel you to keep improving yourself & not quit for getting what you want out of your life. 😘Affirm to yourself daily that youre strong & that you can overcome anything! I prayed so much! Yes believe that you are worthy of everything that is great in this world! 🙌🏻
Yes my friends, know that you matter & that you’re a capable being! You have it in you! It is & was always inside of you!😘
If you reach this far I thank you for letting me share my life. You’re better than you think you are! I didn’t believe then but damm I believe it now because I overcame a lot.😘I can honestly say I feel stronger, happier, & unstoppable lol 🤣
God has a better plan for me & for each of you too! ☺️ I hope I have touched or impacted your ❤️ in a positive way. Stay strong & follow your ❤️ mind & soul!
Here’s a hug to you for being awesome! Smile & Make each day count! 😘 Keep feeling good in Your Own Skin & know that you too can overcome! I love you guys! Muah
Now tell me: what painful experience have you overcome before? Do share below 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 I would really love to hear from you.😘

When I first started lifting I never thought I’d be where I am today.. all I really wanted was to feel fit, strong and have a better relationship with my body image. Then I started watching @danalinnbailey and all the amazing things she’s done and was motivated to not only be strong but look it as well.. people always asked me why I wanted to be bigger? Why would I want more muscle? They’d tell me to not get too big or manly.. to keep my petite frame.. and pretty face.. and for awhile I let THEIR opinions hold me back.. I let others tell me how to live MY life.. last year was a big change for me.. I woke up one day and realized that this is MY life.. I let go of toxic people and kept those who matter and support myself and family close.. I realized that my goals and self worth are more important than pleasing those who really don’t matter.. and nothing else matters but what I think of myself at the end of the day.. I’m excited to keep working.. I don’t plan to compete this year or ever really.. I just want to do this for ME and my little girl who watches and looks up to me every single day ♥️ she loves that her mommy is strong (so she says 🤣) and wants to be strong too.. well Little Mae if you only knew you are what makes me strong you’d know that you already are ♥️💪🏼 #strongmommy#rolemodel#passion#love#fit#strong#mydaughterismyhero#beyou#motivation

Let's just say I've grown SO MUCH SINCE I HAD MY DAUGHTER. (Literally crying while I'm typing this 😭) Being a mom is literally the best job a woman can do.. From carrying a baby for 9 months being in ICU for 2 weeks while I was 14 weeks pregnant from recovering and mentally getting ready for having a baby I wasn't ready.. but I came so far. I knew I had to be strong for her so I stayed strong. Learning to be the best mom you can be is coming from your heart and knowing what's best for your kids.
Love, kisses, hugs, being playful, finger painting, walks, parks, swimming, dancing, baths, building blocks, learning the alphabet, numbers, letters, books, drawing.. so on and so on. The love that I have for this little girl I hope she sees that I try my best as a parent to make her happy and know that she's safe and so strong. Your such a character your so sweet , beautiful, smart, funny and such a diva 😉💖 But I just really wanna say to everyone thanks for following these years with me as a mom growing and succeeding in life. I know I'm not perfect but I try to be❤
I love you all 💓
Injuries SUCK ☹️ It all started with a weird ass landing doing something I have done a ton of times.
Then comes recovery from the initial injury to a point where you can start physio.....then MRI, x ray, visits to orthopaedic surgeon then finally to surgery.
It was a little more than 10 months from injury date to surgery date which wasn’t that bad considering I tried physiotherapy for a while to prevent needing surgery.
I was a little nervous but more excited to have surgery. It meant I would be hopefully able to return to doing all the things I love.
I am healing well but I am now on the long road to recovery. Lots of physio, exercises and stretching needed to get my knee functioning properly again.
I think the hardest part won’t be the pain from getting it moving again but more overcoming my mind. The fear of hurting it again, the fear of it not completely healing and even the fear of not playing Broomball again. But I have to push those from my mind and focus on the now.
I WILL face this one day at a time 💪

It’s far too easy to take people and opportunities and things we have in our life for granted! I try daily to stop and appreciate all of my blessings. Anyone else do the same?❤️￼
Hallo ihr Lieben 🥰 mal wieder ein Lebenzeichen von uns und ein Schnapp Schuss vom Räuber 😉! Hier ist immer was los deswegen so wenig Zeit für Instagram,aber so ist das eben wenn man einen fast Full Time Job hat und 2 Kinder behüten und versorgen muss und gleichzeitig noch den Haushalt schmeißt 😌Wir wollen nicht klagen uns geht es gut und wir haben alles, sind gesund und bekommen jeden Tag ein Lächeln von unseren Kindern als Belohnung 😉Nicht alles läuft nach Plan, nicht alles bekommt einen Haken ! Es wird immer wieder Hürden geben die wir überwinden müssen! Nur so können wir was erreichen nur so wird man stark ! Die Feinde und Neider sollte man ausschalten und das Leben genießen ! Ich weis das es mir auch nicht immer gelingt ! Doch am Ende des Tages weis ich ich habe alles gegeben um glücklich zu sein für diesen Tag ! Dann lege ich mich schlafen 🛏 verarbeite den Tag mit meinen Träumen und stelle mir am nächsten Tag neue Ziele und Aufgaben für den Tag ! Nichts ist dem Zufall zu überlassen denn wir sind die über sich selbst bestimmen und zulassen! Also wenn es heute jemanden gab der euch traurig gemacht hat lasst es nicht zu und seht die positiven Dinge und beschenkt euch selber ein wenig mit Liebe euerer Lieben 🥰 Nur so seit ihr STARK für die wirklich wichtigen Dinge !! 💪🏻 #insta#instagram#instalove#myfamilymyteam#family#familygoals#living#lifetime#strongwoman#strongmommy#boys#kids#kidsboy#nursing#nurse#home#workout#blessed#dream#babyboy#pic#picoftheday#greattime#mama

These two pictures are one year apart
The one on the left is a picture of a woman who is smiling on the outside but crying on the inside. I was so disappointed in myself for putting myself last. For taking my health for granted. And most of all for becoming a tired and sick mom. 😢
The picture on the right is of a woman who has learned to love herself again. One who makes time for herself and makes her health a priority. And who shows her children daily the importance of physical fitness for both your physical and mental health. ❤️
I never believed I could accomplish this with online workouts done from home. But I DID!!
And YOU can too!! ✅ Are you tired of being tired?
✅ Don’t have time to get to a gym anymore?
✅ Looking for something you can fit into nap times or during a paw patrol episode?? I got you covered 👍 and I won’t let you down.
Let’s get back to loving ourselves inside and out together ❤️ because damn it mamma you are WORTH IT 💪

She’s not down for the count often...but I’m thankful I can be there at a moments notice when she is 💗
I got the call yesterday from school that my baby wasn’t feeling so hot. Never the call any mommy wants to get 😞
Now before running my own business from home, I would have been in the city, likely in a meeting, having the usual crazy busy day at the office. I wouldn’t have just been able to leave right then and there to pick her up. And I would’ve been a major stress ball, just wanting to get to her but knowing I would pay for it later.
Fast forward to now, and it’s not as if I can just throw my work out the window 😏 But it’s nice to be in control of my schedule so work fits into FAMILY life - NOT the other way around.
And once we were home and settled today, mommy was able to grab her phone and work from the couch, snuggling her little one at the same time.
Just another perk of the opportunity I said YES to 💖
**Update** - she’s home today (due to school policy) but feeling MUCH better!! 👏🏼👏🏼

I’m only 2 POUNDS AWAY from my very first goal weight! And I only have 2 WEEKS LEFT of my 8 week program. 🤯 I cannot believe how quickly it’s gone by and if I’m being honest.... I’m super excited because this is my FIRST time actually completing a workout program from START to FINISH. 🎉🤗🎉
First off... this right here is a journey of personal GROWTH, in all aspects of my life!
Since this last picture on the right, my body has transformed every more and in such a good way and let me tell you how proud I feel of the accomplishments I have made in each of these pictures!
I’m one week away from being able to finally talk to you about what I’ve been up to the last few weeks and if I can sum it up right now I would say it is — MAJOR!
I wish I had access to all the tools I have now years ago. I used to be so sensitive to the 65 plus pounds I carried on me, and no it wasn’t all baby.. there was a MENTAL weight that was the heaviest of all!
I’m so pumped about what My wife and I are learning and going through in this pilot test group and can’t wait to start prepping all my customers and Coaches to completely kick ass this January. We are looking to add more people who want first access to our very own Test Group NOW in our FALL Bootcamps. These groups are rocking it! And it’s these people that I am taking on to Coach with our new program to start 2019 on fire! If you —
➕Want to lose weight this holiday season
➕Want to implement a simple and effective exercise routine
➕Follow a simple meal plan with weekly treats and drink a daily smoothie
➕Join a kick ass group & work on mindset
Then fill out my form, [link in profile] to reserve your spot. Only for those serious about joining and starting in one week!
I mean....🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ sometimes I forget what I bought and it just shows up....and other times I check the mail every few hours to make sure I hide it before the husband gets home😳 ya feel me?

Evil lives in this world all around us but it’s up to us to change it. - - -
Today while I was dealing with my emotions, I am thankful for good church friends & coach friends. I am also thankful I could take time to really pour into myself physically & mentally. Then pour into my kids even more.
The last 24 hours I am really reminded WHY I choose to work my butt off to be home with my babies.
Yeah, days can be hard.
Yeah, I have thought about giving up.
Yeah, it completely sucked having two jobs, a daughter and moving across states while starting this business but it was worth EVERY SECOND!
You have a voice... USE IT. We need more good in this world!
Thank you all for the messages & prayers for on #noordinaryfamily it means so much and it reminds me Satan will not win.
Hug your babies closer and remember to slow down because they deserve all the love.
There are so many adventures 🏔 and opportunities awaiting you 👉... don’t put limits on yourself!!!

Anyone else freezing?!? It’s 37 degrees here’s and you would think I could handle it but nope.
So today I CHOOSE to work in the warmest robe, messy hair + and drink my superfoods out of a pineapple 🍍 because your mind is in a better place when bright colors, shades and thoughts of summer ☀️
