What’s your fix tonight? Did you have a cocktail?? No shame if so!! Share your skinny cocktails with me!! #noshame#cocktaillovingmother#lacroixwater#goals#tryingtofocus#amialoneonthisone
Today I gifted myself empowerment by writing and sharing words about my truth. My wish is that in doing so, others will be inspired to gift themselves what they are in need of too.
I’m strong. I’m resilient. So much so that I never really considered myself a survivor of abuse. After all it was only emotional and verbal (occasionally physical) mistreatment.
So for years I never used the term ‘abuse’ regarding my experience, and I never really identified as having been abused. I didn’t downplay what had happened to me (to my family and friends who know about it) but I did put on a brave face. I never wanted to seem like a victim and I am still not totally comfortable in using the word ‘abuse’. Please don’t misunderstand, I would never dream of telling an abuse survivor to “suck it up”...but I’ve told myself that plenty of times.
I’m strong. I’m resilient. I’m not dramatic. I don’t over exaggerate. I’m not attention seeking. What I experienced was abuse. I never considered...myself, and in not doing so I whitewashed what happened to me. I’m done whitewashing now though. I’ve been done for a while. I was emotionally, verbally, and physically (on occasion) abused by my step-mother. It was cruel. I survived and now I’m thriving!
What happens when you reorganize your bookshelf, get everything to fit perfectly, then proceed to buy more books? The stacking commences. I have no self control in bookstores... I need help #overflow#booknerd#helpme#noshame

Beast Mode alert!! My middle child totally called me out on modifying and then proceeded to do the full move...”plyo moving pushups”!!! After noticing and telling her she can’t make me look bad, she responded with “that’s my job.”. Then later she coined her own word to use while doing the burn out tricep dips... “lava!” ...and I love it!! @shaunt (Note: We have never forced our kids to workout! (However, we do make them go outside and play) We simply try to lead by example and pray that living a healthy lifestyle will stick with them as they grow...it’s a bonus when they decide to workout with me)
Not everyone loses or gains wait the same or at the same rate. So don’t compare yourself to anyone else. I’ve gained, lost and gained weight again. It’s all been a part of my journey and I loved my body every step of the way. So even if you aren’t where your “goal” is... it’s ok. As long as you don’t give up you will make it, but you must love yourself every step of the way because being “skinny” doesn’t mean it’s going to make you happy. #bodypositive#noshame#loveyourself#fitissexy#gains#strongwomen#fitchick#fitness
Paint me...Paint me like one of your French poodles... #NSFW#noshame
Our dinner soundtrack from tonight. The kids wanted to hear what Dad listened to when he was in elementary school. Care to guess which song was their favorite...and which they thought was the most ridiculous? #grayclanatx#noshame
