Being a mom can be hard. Being a mom of 2+ is even harder. Being sick is hard. Being a sick mom of 2 sick kids (one of them being stuck to me closer than skin) is even harder... I feel like I've officially reached my limit of bull crap. This is our 6th sickness since November. What. Is. Going. On?⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I'm exhausted, I've lost the little patience I've had left. I've wanted to give up (not really sure what that actually means, because as moms we can't really give up). I've yelled and cried... I've let the house fall to shambles because I can't keep with with sick kids, and the house, and my own needs. I'm officially ready God, I'm ready for the new season Literally and metaphorically. I need some sunshine, and I need some breakthrough. I need some sort of normalcy back. I need sleep... I need rest. And it's not just the sickness, the sickness has been the cherry on top. I need encouragement and some sort of glimpse to show me it'll all be alright soon. Because I've been waiting for a long time, and don't know how much longer I can wait cheerfully. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I'm not trying to sound discouraging, I promise.⠀⠀ I just want to be raw and real.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ So here's an older photo of sunshine, and days filled with smiles and good health.⠀ ⠀ #rawmotherhoodmovement #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodunhinged #reallifemoments #tiredasamother #motherhoodintheraw #rawmotherhood

And on the day and to the exact second you were born Mateo, Frank Sinatra was singing “Fly me to the moon.....” 💚

Happy 2nd birthday to my happy boy, my miracle baby!!!! You are pure son-shine Mateo☀️ I wish I could bottle up all of your giggles, besitos, and tickles. You’re just the most loving, loudest, curious, smartest, funniest, music loving little boy I know and I thank God everyday for you. I love you to the moon and back, to infinity and beyond.

This is me. I am one imperfect mama who LOVES my family with everything I've got ❤️. Today I am exhausted. We are on day two of the #gapsdiet and I was ready to give up more than a dozen times #somuchcomplaining . BUT, the hope inside of me for the positive results of this gut healing for my family sent me back into the kitchen to prepare for tomorrow. Because I am relentless and love doesn't give up. This is REALLY hard, much harder than I imagined, but we will take it one day at a time. Have you heard of GAPS before, or know someone who has done it? How many days did they last? . . . . #gaps #guthealth #guthealing #bodyhealing #healthyfamily #imperfect #lovemyfamily #tiredasamother #stopdropandmama #momsofinstagram #momsbelike #ohheymama #momlife #motherhoodunlugged #candidmotherhood #motherhoodrising #momsofig #honestlymothering #modernmom #fitmama #christianfamily #justmotherhood #lifewithkids #crunchymama #rawparenting #reallife #thisisme #mymotherhood

Motherhood is a never ending dance between wanting to hold your kids close and needing to get away. You accept the bitter because it makes the sweet so much sweeter. It’s push and pull of emotions can leave your tank empty but your heart full. No one tells you it’s going to feel this way. To love so much it hurts. To crave their touch and personal space at the same time! It’s a beautiful and crazy and messy and loud and wonderful ride. I won’t be gone for long but I miss their faces, hugs and smell already. But I need this. We need this. I’m indulging in a little self care, I may even sleep for 5 days, who knows. But I know I’ll miss them like crazy but come back recharged and ready for whatever they got for me. Pray that my anxiety stays in check, and my mom and Grampy embrace the chaos!

I was avoiding working out (again🙄), because, well, my hair looked too good to mess up tonight 💁🏼‍♀️ BUT, if I want the rest of me to look as good as my hair, then I need to put the work in!

Let’s talk workouts. Not doing them but what it takes to do them! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was crying in my Bosses office. New challenges I was facing where causing anxiety and bringing up past fears. She asked me how I had the motivation to Work out every day. I had to pause. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don’t. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I do keep showing up, though, because I was fed up. What was in the past was more painful than the brief relief from Skipping a workout. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I showed up for a meeting with my biz mentor. She happened to say the same thing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ok universe, I’m listening. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You have to have the motivation to change the way you talk to yourself. You have to have the discipline to change those thoughts for the better. You have to be willing to look at yourself and say...I deserve freakin’ better than what my mind is saying to Me right now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How do you create the discipline to change your thoughts? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✅grab some pd. Girl Wash Your Face by @msrachelhollis is where it’s at. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✅let yourself fail gracefully. If someone gives you crap for it - admit you aren’t perfect and have the tenacity to show up again ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✅ be your best friend. Seriously stop being mean to yourself ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I used to think that my meanness is what motivated me to be better. It turns out my meanness is what has been holding me back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can stop being mean to yourself, start having grace and build yourself into the best possible version or you can keep being miserable and hide behind your frustrations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s a choice. Choose wisely. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How can you start being kinder to yourself today?

A little nostalgia. My first program ever was a bit bootcamp, a bit rough and tough, but it was only 20 ish minutes. I laugh looking back because i was almost 5 months pregnant and literally modified almost every single move. Now, two kids later, Im doing another 20 ish minute routine something a little hard core and its funny how its come full circle. Just goes to show ya, theres magic in coming back to the basics✨ What do you like for a routine- longer or shorter?

i never knew the love i would feel for her would be so intense, that sometimes it’s all consuming. the love i have for her is immeasurable. it will never be explainable, it will never have a limit. she is every little bit of my world & i am so thankful she chose us. eyes as blue as the ocean • • • • • #nothingdownaboutit #emmarose #theupsidetoemma #theluckyfew #downsyndromeawareness #ldnont #dailyparenting #momlife #tiredasamother #rebelmama #rebelgirl #mosaicdownsyndrome #supportlocal

What if saying YES could give you more than you ever hoped, imagined and prayed for? What if you had the margin in your life to say YES to something that could provide freedom for you and your family for generations to come? What if it was the best YES and an opportunity of a lifetime? There isn’t a day that goes by that I’m unhappy that I said yes. This work that I do has opened more doors than I ever thought possible and has allowed me to dream bigger than I realized I needed to. What an incredible day with my team and we ended the night with snow. I’m so happy I said YES to this and didn’t think twice. #changeyourlife

Day 13 was an unofficial rest day as my hair appointment ran close to my early afternoon shift start at the hospital. Oh, and my dog decided to throw up all over our living room this morning so as a result I had to steam-clean the living room rug after getting my son squared away for daycare (hence time carved out of my planned workout time). Tomorrow is an official rest day for the program so after my day shift at work, we will get today’s “Balance” checked off the list then! . Happy Friday! Here’s to a new hairstyle 💁🏼‍♀️ and no more sick dogs 🐕! . . #thefitpharmer #transform20 #improvise #lifehappens #oops #tiredasamother #momlife #dogmom #toddlermom #teambeachbodycoach #workoutroutine #shauntfitness #momstrong #hairdid #highlights #lowlights #beachbodyondemand #hospitallife #shiftwork #pharmacist #blackandwhite #goodhairday #restdayworkout #raybans #goodnight

Spent of the day like this with my sick boy. Will probably spend most of the night like this too. I'm glad that even though he doesn't want to eat or drink that he will nurse and isnt getting dehydrated.

Almost daily I have people say to me, "I don't know how you do it", pertaining to waking up early, exercising, meal prepping, eating healthy-ish & balancing work/3 kids/coaching, etc. Honestly, most days, I don't know how I do it either. But, I do know that if I don't do it, I'm much worse off. You see this playroom behind me. It gives me anxiety. Like, to the point of having to clean it or risk not sleeping. I have people joke on me all the time about it & I know it drives my husband bananas. I mean, I get it. It's a playroom, it's going to get messy. But, to me, "everything has a home"......& I mean that quite literally. As much as people think I just like to clean, I've come to the conclusion that it has to be some sort of coping mechanism for me. To go to bed with my house in order makes me feel like I have my shit together in all other areas of my life. I know that sounds crazy, but my struggle is real. Although it may seem like I have some sort of superpowers, per the highlight reel on social media, my life is far from perfect. My anxiety is real. The time I take for myself, exercising, reading/listening to personal development, leaning in to my coaching family for support & showing up daily in my challenge groups are all things that help me to stay sane. Doing these things that fill my cup & make me feel good have become an integral part of my everyday life. When I miss out on part of my routine, my anxiety goes into overdrive. So, this whole healthy lifestyle of mine, that I love to share with others, has not only changed my life in a physical aspect, but it has played a big role in my mindset & mental clarity, too. I am learning everyday to focus on progress & not perfection. It is so easy for me to preach that to others, but when it comes down to my life, I still have some work to do. And, I own that. As much as cleaning helps me to de-stress, there is still no comparison to a good sweat sesh, a healthy meal and a good book. Anyone else riding the anxiety struggle bus and using self care to help calm the chaos in your head? I get you, friend. I get you ❤

Hey yall! For those of you new around here, I thought I'd introduce myself and share some fun facts about yours truly. 🙋‍♀️ My name is Kristy Dodson, wife to Derrick (my forever cowboy) since 2011, boy mom to Diesel (6), Dantly (4), and Daxtyn (1.5) (yes yall I'm aware they have rather "original names 😂 we are hillbillies up in hurrr) Cali girl gone Country (for the most part 😜 hence the slang), lover of all things coffee, thrift store shopper (Goodwill is my homie), allergic to mornings (#tiredasamother), introvert by day, comedian by night(really guys I can be funny!), good girl with an hood playlist, growing in faith (love of Jesus), and working on a better me! For those of you who don't know, I’m am an online health and wellness coach. I started this journey about a year ago, after having baby number three, battling depression, and on a serious mission to lose that extra baby weight! Little did I know, I would soon find my passion and my purpose. I started sharing my journey ( we are talking the real. raw. good. bad. and the ugly) through this crazy thing called life. I soon realized I wasn't alone, and I felt that tug on my heart strings to start helping other women grow in their faith, lose weight, build muscle, ignite their passion for health and fitness, and love themselves again! As YOUR online health and wellness coach, I am here to share my personal experience and help you get started, stay motivated, and get results! What are some of yalls goals? (For real, share them below I'd love to hear!) My objective is to make sure you’re ready to start your journey with confidence by connecting you to my personal Customer Support group and offering you the opportunity to join my next virtual private Challenge Group. So you're looking for a friend, someone to talk to, need a shoulder to cry on, someone to keep you inspired, make you laugh, or even just go out to grab a cup of coffee. Im your gal. 😘

We. Did. It. So proud of our boys who were absolute champs today. Henry only threw up those two times this morning. His tummy is definitely bothering him and he’s not eating like he usually does but he’s drinking and nibbling and likely just car sick. He slept the majority of the trip surprisingly. Aiden was an angel, much to my surprise 😂 He didn’t nap a single minute until 5pm (he is usually naps from 1-3pm) when he crashed but played happily with his presents and enjoyed watching Cars movie on repeat (can’t WAIT to see him freak out over the Cars suite we got at the resort at a Disney!). We ended up only needing to stop 5 times (3 of those were meals) and made it here in good time, it got a little tricky driving through Tampa at rush hour but all is well! They both went to sleep easily and Donny and I who split the driving 50/50 (which really was also tag teaming who sat in the back with the boys) are toast. So thankful for your prayers of safety and over our sweet Henry bear! Hopefully we get a good nights sleep so that in the morning we can go to the beach! I’ve got a lot of you waiting on a message back (sorry if I disappeared off the planet, I had second half of the trip driving so I was focused on the road 😉) about my transformation group! Spots will be first come first serve so know I’m coming for you if I don’t get to them tonight.

When you’re up late making homemade goodies for your kids birthday and the kitchen looks like Betty Crocker blew up, you can’t lick anything because it’s not allergy friendly for you and you run into unexpected obstacles like a batch of icing turning orange instead of yellow, another batch turning out cream instead of bright yellow, a dark chocolate icing to make the symbol ends up bad and hard so you can’t squeeze it so you can’t finish filling it in and some sprinkles want to be love your kid....that is all. . . . . . . #momlife #boymom #reaganyturns5 #funny #cake #food #foodie #hilarious #batman #kitchenprobs #birthdays #tiredasamother

GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY gf! The fact that its only $20 right now to change your life and you're still wondering if this is the right move... So many times in life you're given opportunities you skip out on bcuz of fear of the unknown. I get it. You're human just like I am and want to take the comfy route.. the "I'm going to stay broke bcuz I'm scared of change" route. You literally spend $20 at Chick-fil-a or going into Target and buying stuff you don't need and the fact that you can spend that on starting a business and making a Change is so amazing! You have watched my journey, you have watched where I'm going and now I'm ready to help you write your own success story. I only have a limited amount of codes- don't wait for the right time bcuz there is never a right time.

The absolute most bittersweet, heart wrenching thing about parenting two small children- folding up clothes that are too small. Finn is growing into six month clothing (he’s a real chunk at 16.5lb). I spent time tonight packing away tiny newborn jammies that both boys wore, not knowing if I’ll get to see them worn again (will I ever have another boy?) and remembering the fresh little bodies that wore them. At the same time I had to smile pulling out bigger onesies that Foster wore his first trips to the park and while learning to roll and crawl. I think what’s best about this situation is that earlier this week I had several bouts of frustration and stress, dealing with endless tantrums and blowouts. I literally had both Finns poop and Fosters yogurt on me at the same time yesterday morning. I cursed myself for being a ‘horrible mother’ unable to keep calm with yet another full blown meltdown. This season of life is exhausting. There are zero breaks. Emotions run full in so many directions. Sleep is broken into four hour chunks of breastfeeding and re-covering a scared toddler with his blankets. But life has a way of grounding you and reminding you of the fresh newborns that were once handed to you. Folding these little pants and pajamas reminds me of just how much this laundry is going to change in five, ten, even fifteen years when I’ll go from packing away baby clothes to packing suitcases. #motherhood #motherofboys #slowdown #tiredasamother #stopgrowingplease

Motivation is not about wanting to do the work. It's about wanting something bad enough to make it happen. 👉✨ . This is a photo of me from around 6am this morning, immediately after my workout. Despite the fact that I've brightened the picture, you can still see those big dark circles right under my eyes. 👁️👁️ . I'm TIRED 😫😴 . You see, I'm not motivated to wake up and immediately workout. It's not easy! But I do want to feel healthy, have more energy, and maybe loose a few extra pounds. So I make it a priority and get it done first thing. 🌄 . On days when I don't feel like doing the work, I remind myself it's only 25 minutes, and at least I don't have to drive anywhere 😅 #homeworkoutvideos . I'm kicking off a new FitClub this Monday and I'm looking for 5 ladies to fill the last spots! 🙋 Give me 30 days of your motivation and I'll give you some of the tools that I use to keep myself on track! Fill out the application in my bio or send me a message about your struggles with staying motivated 📨

“I wish I would have started sooner.” I hear it and I’ve said it. ⠀ I NEVER pictured myself working out at home. I NEVER thought I’d gain an AH-MAZING community of women from all over the world. I NEVER dreamt I’d feel better and more confident after four kiddos than pre-kiddos. ⠀ BUT it happened! ⠀ Girl... I’m not sure what’s stopping you from starting but just know you truly are one decision away from a totally different life. Reach out & LET’S GOOOO! 😘

Babies change your body. • C-Sections change it even more. • • I went into pregnancy with the mindset that if I had to have a c-section it was no big. I know I’m a small framed person to begin with. What I never expected was to push for three hours. Yep. You read that right. THREE. hours. that ultimately ended in a c-section. • 19 months later and that totally lopsided “pooch” or “ledge” you see at the bottom of my stomach.... those are not abs. That is the aftermath of a c-section. And while my original incision and scar are way lower, I’m pretty sure this is where the inside incision was (because it was pretty numb for the longest time too). It’s also the part that I’m the most insecure about. Even now, I prefer to hide it. But I’m showing you all because I want you to know that my journey and my progress haven’t been perfect and it still isn’t. • I’ve lost inches and gained muscle and my body had changed in so many ways but my stomach and abs will continue to be a work in progress. • • • • #postpartumbody #postpartumbelly #postpartumanxiety #mommalife #firewifestrong #firewife #teachermomlife #spedtribe #iteachsped #csectionscar #csectionbelly #csectionmama #csectionmommy #firefamily #girlmomlife #girlmama #toddlermomlife #toddlermama #mermaidmom #smalltownliving #smalltowncharm #teacherfriends #targetteachers #targetmoms #tiredasamother #tiredteacher #postpartumanxiety #marriedforlife #highschoolsweetheart #marriedtomybestfriend

It’s OK if you failed yesterday. Today is a New day! This lifestyle is a marathon, not a sprint.🙌🏼♥️

Today has been a rough one in the Motherhood. Aside from this cutie teething and being needy.... I have yelled and cried more than I should have. Washed, dried, folded, and put up more laundry than I want to admit. Through all the hardships I am thankful!! Thankful for these kids who make me a Mom. I prayed so hard for each one of them and still do daily! They break me and mold me day in and day out.

Cheers to the weekend! We said goodbye to the boys’ pacis aka “NuNu” as they call them this week. It wasn’t really planned...just kind of happened. We tried to get rid of them after their second birthday when the dentist recommended cutting off the tip. Well that was a total disaster and we were also in the middle of potty training. Then soon after that came the transition to big boy beds. We didn’t want to overwhelm them with too much change at once so we decided to hold off. They were only having them for nap and bed at that point anyway so we just let it go. • • Well yesterday at naptime Brody’s had a small crack in it and he was saying he needed a new one. We talked about how he really didn’t need it and how we can save the nunus for the little babies who need them. We have been talking a lot about babies lately for obvious reasons and the boys have been so interested in what babies need and how to take care of them. They both agreed that the new babies needed the nunus more. So proud of these two. They are going to be the best big brothers. Pickle is one lucky girl.💕 • • When did your babes give up their pacis? Did you have a special way of doing it or just go cold turkey?! • • #momlifebelike #motherhoodunplugged #ig_motherhood #toddlermomlife #raisingboys #fitpregnancyjourney #thisismotherhood #stayathomemomlife #motherofboys #momofthree #mysweetboy #momtogs #lifeofatoddler #newmomlife #babygirlontheway #twinmama #bigbrotherlittlesister #thisis2 #momblogger #fitandpregnant #fitmomlife #twinsplusone #3under3 #momoftwins #boymomlife #tiredasamother #busymomlife #motherhoodthroughig

Fannypacks are back, didn't you know? 😂 Or at least this bag is capable of being both that and a small purse just big enough for a few things when you may not have pockets -- phone, wallet, keys, chapstick, the hairtie you usually keep on your wrist.... Yes, it's @thirtyone. Yes, it's going away at the end of the month. Yes, I will be the one you see rocking a much more upscale "fannypack" than I did when I was an athletic trainer, thanks to my friend @lizbair who sold me this one. #thirtyonegifts #convertiblebeltbag #fannypackorpurse

Nursing beyond infancy isn’t something I ever thought was for me. I hadn’t ever considered what my nursling might need for himself though. Why do I photograph myself nursing my 2.5 year old? To make you all spit out your evening coffee. (Just kidding). I find these moments quite beautiful and even a smidgen peaceful. These fleeting moments make up a large part of my life. Bringing comfort, nourishment & sleepy eyes is the duty of this season I’m in and if I know anything to be true about seasons, it’s that they always change. Sometimes they pass more quickly than I’d prefer, so I’ll savor my #sweetselfies. #shameless #selfweaning #godspeed #mamatried #tiredasamother #nursingbeyondinfancy #nursling #mydandy #hankburton #milked

I just got home from work and glad to have a 3 day weekend with my bestie. I love the card she got for me and her dad for Valentine's Day. She wrote it all by herself. I love that she wrote "good job" at the end😂. Isn't that the goal of all parents, that one day their kids will think they did a "good job" with them, haha.

My favorite snack of all time! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've been making what my friends began referring to as "special popcorn" since I was in college. And it's still requested of me when visiting with my best pals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the fourth of July (my favorite holiday) I would make a few batches before heading down for the fireworks - enough to feed my whole family and my parents. Inevitably a few friends would happen upon our viewing area and we would share some of our popcorn. Eventually I doubled and tripled the usual amount to be sure to have enough to share with all of my special popcorn-loving friends. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm a fan of the stove-top method. I've tried LOTS of different things over the years but my go-to "recipe" with approximate measurements is this: 3 T. coconut oil 3/4 cup kernels (currently liking @snappypopcornco brand) real butter (melted) 1/4-1/2 cup to taste) salt sprinkle of cheesy powder (Molly McButter is our go-to) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I ALWAYS heat the oil first with 3 kernels and don't add the rest until those 3 kernels pop. I either do mine in a huge soup kettle on the stove or in my Whirly Pop machine. Drizzle butter a little at a time, toss and add a little more. Sprinkle on your salt, cheese or whatever seasonings you like. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That's about it! Lately we've been experimenting with a jalapeño popcorn recipe that my husband and I really like! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A video would probably be easier to demonstrate my recipe. I'll have to do a story and show you some day soon! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What's your favorite way to eat popcorn?

Officially 1 month old! Things William likes: 1. The boob. 2. Lots of cuddles. 3. Moose kisses - but not too many. This little man has stolen my heart. I now see why being a Mom is so worth it, and I can imagine it’ll just keep getting better. #1monthold #mamasboy #strongasamother #tiredasamother #love #family #babymckie

Family day weekend has me thinking about my crew. We’ve left the frantic behind for a more simpler, more soulful way of living. We’re not perfect. Not even close. There’s so much about parenting and farm life we are learning along the way. We still struggle with the balance between work, fun and play and getting everyone what they need to be their best selves. But what is obvious to me - Love is the glue that holds this all together. We work hard to have relationships with each other that matter. No matter what happens - we are solidly in each other’s corners - even when it doesn’t feel like anyone is there. Creativity is valued, prized and innovation celebrated. Last week, I had a date out with my husband one night, and the very next we were out in -30C fixing the septic tank together. What struck me was both were just as equally fun (albeit one colder). What do you prize above all else in your family? What does your family run on?

Are you a coffee lover? Some days I feel like God made coffee just for me. Anyone else ever feel that way? 😂 So this has to be my favorite coffee of all time (it even beats out Starbucks for me). Generous Coffee is so delicious but the movement behind it is even more inspiring. What I love about Generous is that they give 100% of their profit to provide jobs to women, men, and families in need around the world. It has taken me too long to care about the products I buy and where that money is going. I’m realizing that I don’t have to go to these countries in order to make a difference. Even being on one income our family can invest in everyday things that are truly changing the world. What are some of your favorite companies to buy from that give back?

Amazing. They were just amazing. #dancemakers

I’m looking to mentor 10 women! Are you ready to take your love of health and/or fitness to the next level and make money from what you already do? OR, maybe you’ve always dreamed to do something with health and fitness but just don’t know where to start. . . You must be : ✔️Passionate about helping others ✔️Honest ✔️Aadaptable ✔️Willing to learn ✔️& Like either health, fitness or both . . The nutrition aspect has especially grown on me lately since I found out I have a food sensitivity to cows milk. This has helped me with controlling my migraines a bit. But I want to do more! . . There is a nutrition program I’m currently learning and getting certified in as it’s offered by my company. There’s another one that will be available soon which I plan on doing next. You can do this too in your spare time. If you’re thinking, “ I have no spare time!”, I felt that way too once! I have 3 kids, 6 animals and a husband at home plus I work a full time job. . . If you’re thinking, I’m not fit enough or I don’t know enough, Girl, I hear ya on that too! Been there, felt that! I knew I wanted a change in my life though and I knew I wanted to help impact other people’s lives as well. I’m still learning! I mean shit, I’m taking those certification classes aren’t I? They’re all online so you can do them at your convenience when and where you want to. . . If you’re interested or have questions, send me a pm or comment below. . . #workfromhome #dreamjob #tgifyall #weekendvibes✌️ #everydayafriday

nobody cried over a little spilled milk, but ningxia....that’s an entirely different story........#ilovemychildbutwhy

Oofta what a week! I have walked home from the bottom of my driveway twice, lugging all my various crap due to my van's inability to make it up the hill. I have run out of both coffee, and coffee filters on different days. On the plus side, I found out today that Monday is a day off work so I can start working onnour taxes. Who can guess what's in my cup tonight? . . . . #longweek #friday #tgif #longweekend #tiredasamother #momlife #weekend

My kids are why I get up early every morning to workout. Yes even On Fridays!! Why I strive to be as healthy as possible. Why I work so hard to inspire others. Why I strive to be the best I can be. Why I will NEVER give up!!👏👏 If my kids see me doing all of these things I can only hope they will learn that they can do WHATEVER they want!! There is nothing beyond their reach if they work for it!!💕✨ #fitmom #pediatricphysicaltherapist #runner #momoftwo #sidejob #gymnasticsmom #lovelife #passionate #godisgood #ilovesweets #superfoods #whynotyou #sweatyselfie #liveauthentically #communityovercompetition #bodyafterbaby #healthynotskinny #mommyblogger #momswholift #momsbelike #parentingproblems #momtribe #tiredasamother #momonthego #healthymama #preschoolmom #momwin #storytellingmama
