As freakin’ cute as the girls are when they dance, Michael’s moves might be the best part of this particular video 😂
It takes a village to raise kids and yet many of us don’t have a village. .
We live away from family. We’re working parents. We are balancing a million things. .
Yet we hold ourselves to the pressure that one person should be able to manage it all, that which takes a village and that we have to do it well. .
When in fact...we can’t. Or better yet, we shouldn’t. .
Today Erica of @ericalayneco of @thelifeonpurposemovement gives 5 simple steps you can implement today to simplify your life and why you need to. .
Gain a sneak peek to the episode on igtv and the full episode at the link in my bio.
I haven’t worked out in about a week because well life happens... baby gets sick... then gets mama sick 🤦🏽♀️ Finally had my first workout in the gym and it felt so damn good to sweat 💦 fueling my lift with @rockinprotein#ad
This video means the world to me. Huge smiles, some laughs, and feeling totally free (after I realized I wasn’t going to let him drown). A spontaneous rainy day trip to the pool.
In order to go to the pool in the past, I would have to talk myself into it for DAYS. I was so worried about what other people thought when they saw me.. did they notice how my thighs touched? how my belly was squishy? the stretch marks I have (from pregnancy, weight fluctuation, and just from growing)? Are they staring at me? I was missing out on so much.. I didn’t even own a bathing suit so that I could have an excuse NOT to go.
I can honestly say those negative, self deprecating thoughts never crossed my mind once today. I was able to be in the moment with my little guy, and we had so much fun!
So what changed from before?
My mindset. I genuinely can say I love my body, down to every stretch mark and squishy part (most days, it does still take practice sometimes). It wasn’t always like that, and I started it my fitness journey because I hated it so much. That didn’t get me far. Then @shaunt (the guy behind T20) was talking about self love in one of his workouts. I can’t remember exactly what he said, but the message was that you had to start loving your body TODAY and appreciate your body for what it allows you to do. You’re allowed to want to change things or work on your body, but before that will happen you have to love it for where it is now.
That’s when it all clicked for me. Sure I have some parts of my body that I’m working on toning. But overall, I’m happy that my arms are strong enough to pick Remy up. I’m happy that my legs let me play tag with him in the backyard. I’m happy that he loves cuddling into me on the couch and resting his head on my belly.
I choose to live the lifestyle that I do because I love my body enough to take care of it. Not because I’m focused on hating it.
When life gives you Monday, dip it in glitter and sparkle all day. ✨ (it sounded good, right 🤣) drink up (the coffee) buttercup it’s a new week to slay! ⚡️
I am one proud mama! Tristen has finished another dance year with perfect attendance for the year. He worked so hard and never gave up even when it got hard. I love watching him do what sets his soul on 🔥. My prayer is that he will always do that in his life. We will miss our amazing dance studio for the next dance season but we are super excited for what’s to come for us in this new chapter for our family! Now it’s time to rest for the summer!! He has earned it!!!

Spent the weekend fully nesting! Brought all the things down from the attic and got it set up in our room since that’s where baby will sleep the first few months.
Workouts are slowing down, Mama is slowing down, Colby is getting faster 🙈
Yesterday morning we went for a walk, Colby had a ball in his hand and threw it. For anyone who has been to our house you know we live on a STEEP hill. So obvi to avoid a meltdown in the middle of our neighborhood this prego had to run to catch the ball that was viscously rolling down the hill.
If you find this visual hilarious in the most evil way, you are my people ✊🏼 #prettysureicaughtacramp#colbypleasebeeasyonmamaforthenextfewweeks
When life gets blurry, adjust your focus. ❤️
Monday got us like WHOA!
Woke up to rain 🌧 and a pit in my stomach thinking of my ever growing to-do list. .
Anyone else freeze up and do nothing, because the thought of all.the.things. is just too overwhelming? 🙋🏾♀️
We dropped the girls off at school and started checking things off our list. ✅Grocery shopping
✅Post office run
Who dis?! We’re ahead of schedule so we added dancing in the rain to our list and checked that sucker off too! 🙌🏽👊🏽
Make sure you find time to dance today too friends. 💃🏾 #doyouboo#wevegotthis#motherhustler
