Cozied up, reading with my girls...there’s no place I’d rather be... 🥰 Five short years ago I would never had dreamed of homeschooling and I definitely didn’t have the mindset to do so...Nope, not for me! 🙅🏼‍♀️I’m not smart enough, I’m not patient enough, I don’t have enough time! (Negative self-talk any?!) 🤔😩 But over the past few years I’ve been through a wonderful & humbling journey of self growth and looking back now I can see that God was preparing me for something that is now blessing our family by leaps and bounds. Its taught me that we will make time & sacrifice for what’s important. It’s not always easy but it’s sure worth it. Choosing to homeschool was about meeting my kids’ needs right now where they are at. Homeschooling isn’t for everyone but it’s for us right now and I will find joy in the season God has me in. 😍🙌🏻👦🏼👧🏼👧🏼👩🏼‍🏫 #mamateacher #homeschooljourney #classicaleducation #myccday #tidwellclassicalacademy #emeryrose #corahjean #sisters #usbornebooks #unschool #reading #selfgrowth #positiveselftalk #mindset #freedom #grateful #homeschoolmom #itainteasy #butitsworthit #makingmemories @usborne_books

There have been times in my life where I’ve felt defeated. More than I can count. But I am feeling more defeated than I ever have before. They say that your first couple months are spent on a “pink cloud”. Where nothing can come between you and sobriety. When I first got out of rehab, I knew that I had changed and I was more motivated and ready to be the best I can. The pink cloud goes away and leaves you with uncertainty. You stop working for recovery and you’re just working to remain sober. There is a huge difference between sobriety and recovery. Being sober is just going through the motions. Not using because you simply just can’t. And recovery is bettering yourself and your habits every single day. Lately, I am not feeling like I am in recovery and more just in sobriety. Sobriety is hard and unfulfilling. Recovery is also hard, but gives you the reasons you chose to stop using in the first place. I used to think the world was against me and no one understood me. “No one knows what I’m going through” blah blah, you know, addict bullshit. I can feel myself thinking that again and having a victim mentality. “The Universe is against me” I just told my therapist yesterday on the phone. But the truth is, the Universe does not give you anything you do not deserve. The Universe is kind to you when you are kind to it, and when you are harsh to the Universe and her people, she will be harsh back. I am bound to feel defeated in this journey once in a while. I know there are consequences I am still paying for. And I know that it gets hard before it gets easier. It’s no reason to believe I have failed or I don’t see the point in my existence. I’m still figuring out my purpose. I don’t know what it is. And it sometimes takes a toll on me so emotionally that I see myself fall into my addict behavior and habits. I have been isolating and that’s one of the biggest signs for me-that something isn’t going on right with my mental health. I am picking myself out of bed today. Even though it’s snowing, even though I want to sleep all day, I know I have to fight through the internal battles I am fighting. I cannot let the demons of my addiction have this win.

Friends who work out together stay together! So freaking proud of my good friend @nicolemattucci19 who is crushing this new program with me!! She started this journey with me back in the summer but she has made a decision to go ALL IN with me to really do this! Between moving, wedding planning, a puppy, and working two jobs and all of the other things, she’s really doing it and I couldn’t be more proud! Last night we did DAY FOUR together and I’m so proud of her for just pushing through those excuses and just straight up crushing it! It’s really true that when you have someone in your corner cheering you on and just simply being there, you can go that much farther. That’s what happened last night. We were both struggling through the workout but having each other there made it so much better! You are a rockstar Nicole and I can’t wait to see you reach all of your goals! Also I count my stars every day that you didn’t move too far away so we can have spontaneous workout nights more often! 💕 #friendship #workouttogether #reachinggoalstogether #crushingit #shesdoingit #whynotyou #noexcuseshere #metinuniversity #failingforward #postgraduates #workingfulltime #postgradfit #instructortherapist #dentalife #girlswithgoals #girlgangstrong #whatwouldyoudoif #butitsworthit #busybuthealthy #createyourlifestyle #youcandothisgirl #stopsayingno #keepyourpromises #selfdiscoveryjourney #weddingplanning101 #dontgiveup #butyoucan #ptbo #peterborough #kawarthalife

Some days I live in my car, get cranky with my kids, and buy 45 sonic corn dogs for dinner. Sometimes I lose my patience, say a cuss word, or dream of running away to a tropical island alone where nobody needs a snack, a sippy cup, or help wiping their bum, but EVERY time these sweet babies forgive me for my shortcomings, hug me when I’m grouchy and not deserving, and remind that there is nothing I would rather do than be their mom...even when it’s hard, exhausting, and smelly. Being a mom is exhausting and trying, but it’s also the most amazing and magical thing I’ve ever been blessed to experience. These little monsters teach me so much more than I could ever begin to teach them and I’m forever grateful for every single of them! #bigfamilylife #momminainteasy #butitsworthit

Just because I work out every day does NOT mean it is easy for me. Today was a true test to that. I woke up early this morning and my car had a flat tire. Huge thanks to @jeremy_windrem who rolled out of bed at 5AM to put air in my tire. Then I had this killer 20 minute workout. You would think 20 minutes would be easy. Within 2 minutes I wanted to quit. I wanted to just say screw it and do it later. Did I?! Nope! I pushed through. I took breaks. I modified. I didn’t do it later because most times later becomes never. This isn’t just getting a quick workout in. It’s about honouring and keeping the god damn promises you keep to yourself. How many times are you going to tell yourself you are going to do something and then bail? You wouldn’t bail on your best friend so why do you do that to yourself? My advice. Keep your promises to yourself. Treat yourself like you treat your best friend. It doesn’t get easier. You just get stronger. 💕 #toughtimesdontlast #toughpeopledo #whatwouldyoudoif #failingforward #itainteasy #butitsworthit #accountabilityiskey #getupearly #postgradprobs #postgradfit #fulltimejobs #studentdebtcrisis #ptbo #peterborough #kawarthalakes

This idea that you'll find love is arguably the biggest reason people get frustrated with dating and relationships. Successful relationships take non stop consistent effort and hard work. There is no love at first sight or any couple that doesn't go through turmoil. Relationships are hard and it's why if you're not ready to dedicate the time and energy into developing one, you'll be wasting your time and other's by dating... #highenergy #energydrainer #consistencyiskey #dedication #hardwork #relationshipgoals #workbehindthescenes #itsnoteasy #butitsworthit #datingadvice #tips #lifetips #lifecoach #relationshipexpert #datingexpert

I’m not going to lie. Today’s hike was challenging on many levels, especially because of toddler stubbornness and the fact that my Fitbit says it was quite a bit longer than the trail sign indicated. Everyone survived though. And the big kids had a good time so that’s a win in my book. It doesn’t need to be sunshine and rainbows every time for everyone. #homeschoolhikers #150hoursoutside #reallife #itsnotallsunshineandrainbows #butitsworthit

Commit to be the best you can be ⚡️ #shaunfirmation ••• Guys this shit isn’t easy... because if it was? Everyone would be doing it. I’m on day 3... and these 20 minutes a day y’all... they are fucking HARD. My chest is sore. My calves hurt. My back is tight... and after today I bet I will be feeling my tris and abs. But you know what? 🧐 ••• If you asked me 5 years ago if I would commit to a healthy lifestyle, inspire others, drink a “fake” 🙄 shake, and do it all from home I’d tell you pound sand, throw back a jagerbomb and continue to ruin my life. Because I pushed PAST the hard part of just saying YES.. I’m living in a world I never thought possible for myself. ••• Nothing worthwhile in life is “easy”.. you have to learn to FIGHT. And omfg am I ready to fight through the next 6 weeks 🤘🏼✨💪🏼 #fightforit #chooseyourhard #itsworthit #bestversionofme

First leg workout post of the year and it’s a killer 🔥😅💪🏾 1. Warmup: 7x7 (favorite number 😝) 2. 5x10 each leg: in this one I added the 25lbs plates to make it more challenging but if you struggle with balance then just do it with just your body weight 3. 4x15: you will feel this primarily on your hamstrings and glutes when you dip as much as you can to create that 90 degree angle 4. 5x10 each leg: again if balance is a problem for you then do it with just your body weight or with less weight/reps #embracethechallenge #itwillburn #butitsworthit #nopainnogain #determined #onamission #itsgrindseason #igotgoals #nasmcertified #cometrainwithme #neverskiplegday

This quote perfectly describes my day yesterday. It was a tough day. I haven't had a day like that in a long time, and at the end of the day I curled up in bed with my computer. I spent time with women who are actively working on their own transformations and growing their businesses, and it reminded me that we #growbettertogether because we choose to find support in each other instead of going it alone. Maybe you have that gym membership and you don't know what to do when you're there. Maybe you're self-conscious or uncomfortable in a gym and you need more support than a free Youtube workout will give you. Maybe you've seen me hustle and you know you could out-hustle me (challenge accepted, BTW 😉). Maybe you're just sick and tired of being stuck. I can offer you the benefit of my own transformation experience, but I can't do the work for you. That would steal the pride you'd feel for doing it yourself, and I'm not a thief (my apologies if I've already stolen your heart tho 😘😉😂). Message me, text me, hit me up any way you feel comfortable. You're not obligated to commit to anything but I'm always here if you have a question. I'm here if you just want someone to share a personal WIN with. I'm here, always. I'm committed to achieving my personal goal to help AT LEAST 3 people a month take the first step towards a healthier future. I'm just waiting for you to tie your shoes. #hereforyou #transformation #itainteasy #butitsworthit #joinme #askaquestion #heartthief #canthelpit #noselfie #quote #survivethetoughdays #sober #sobermom #soberlife #uprooting #becoming

#10yearchallenge 👍 Ten years ago, thinking I looked "fine", because I gained some weight; I wasn't at deaths door anymore. Never mind all the other health problems, the constant cold, the weakness, the thin hair, the tears, etc... Now (summertime technically) I've "let myself go"! There's wobbly bits, saggy bits, curves that don't quite curve in the right direction, dimply legs... And there's strength, smiles, children, a future! The most important aspect of our health to protect is our mental health, the rest really does fall into place when you get your head right. #eatingdisorderrecovery #itsnotalwayseasy #butitsworthit

Mommin ain’t easy, that’s for sure. Jackson has never been a good sleeper, his naps are few and far between, adding on lack of sleep to the plethora of other fun things life has been throwing my way, this mama needs a break. But, when he runs into my arms and gives me a hug, shows me his little 7 tooth smile, and gives me kisses I remember that there is no place I’d rather be. There is nothing I would rather be doing than raising this little boy and I am so thankful that I get to work from home to spend each precious (and crazy) moment with this little boy. An hour a day of hustle for days filled with laughter and priceless moments, I’ll take it.

Happy Monday!❤🙏 I wanted to leave this message with you today because I myself struggled with this for the longest time. The dreaded... BEING ALONE!😟 . . It's very normal & ok to not want to be alone. After all, it's our natural instinct to want to share our life with someone & form a relationship/partnership with them. But let me tell you...it's ok to realize that maybe you need to be alone for a while to focus on YOU. The best way to truly figure out what you want and need in someone else is by taking the time to see yourself & love yourself as you are. How can someone else come into your life & love everything about you if you don't? . . Dating is HARD! Finding what you need/ want/desire can be difficult in someone if you don't take the time to realize what you deserve! Yes, that's right... DESERVE. We often keep repeating the same patterns over & over in hopes to find a new outcome. Not because we enjoy reliving heart ache but because we aren't taking the time we need in between each relationship to look at what didn't work & also to rebuild ourselves again in order to let love back in when it's time. But the key word here is TIME.🕛 . . Give yourself the time you need to be whole again. To be YOU again. We all leave relationships a little (or a lot) broken. Needing to heal & put some pieces back together. This is ok. This is normal & very healthy. Take this time to focus on yourself. I guarantee you'll take a different road this next time if you take the time to nurture & care for yourself first.❤
