Confession: I modify the sh*t out of my workouts. 😂
.
.
I'm not an athlete and I don't eat perfect. You know what else? I've never kept a New Year's resolution 🤷‍♀️
.
.
And I've lost 35 pounds. I've completely changed my relationship with food and how I talk to myself! I stopped judging myself and others, and it made the world a less scary place. ❤
.
.
The program works if you work the program! Was I on track every day? Lol no... Did I pick myself up and try again? Yes, yes I did. 💪😎
.
.
Each month I take 3 ladies who want a better life - a healthy body, a healthy mind, and a healthy relationship with food - and help them do what I've done. .
.
Is this you? Are you ready to feel better inside and out? I won't lie, it's hard work! But it's totally worth it! Give me a ❤ Below for more info 🙂

I'm always looking for inspiration and this one right here hit me hard. How many times as women do we talk or think about ourselves negatively? We tell ourselves we are not worthy in so many ways.....putting others before us....refusing to buy ourselves anything.....buying for others instead......we're too fat, not pretty enough, if only we could change this, or that....why can't I get everything done (my biggest negative self-talk). Frustrated because we're so tired, never mind we actually only got 4 hrs of sleep at night....for the last 9+ yrs (speaking from personal experience, and my current situation. ⠀

Our minds are not separate from our bodies, they are one and the same and interconnected in ways we still have yet to learn and explain. Please be kind to yourself, tell yourself how you are going to slay it today, how you are going to dominate the world while giving yourself grace if you need a nap. ⠀

// to pray is to let go and let God take over // Philippians 4:6-7 🌻

I know that I fall short, often. I fall short of being a perfect mom, a perfect wife, a perfect Christian, a perfect business women. It’s just life!

What I’ve came to realize in 2018 is giving myself space creates a place to give myself grace. I have learned how to give myself grace for not being perfect, and yet still trying every day to be the best person I can be.
This bible is going on 6 years old. It was the first bible I have ever received. There are notes filling the pages, highlighted verses, circled words, and dates everywhere. Mav started “reading” to Zen whenever she’s in the swing, and he puts it away with all his other books. 😩👏🏼 My lesson for today: instead of focusing where your falling short, look around you. Your positivity & movements impact more than you can grasp. My children copy so much more than I believe I will ever fully understand. Be the best version of you, and don’t be afraid to give yourself grace. 🙌🏼

⭐️TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY⭐️
.
My office THEN and my “office” NOW!
.
The decision for me to stay at home with Evie was made in a split second. What a nightmare of a situation that was...
.
Needless to say! I was NOT prepared and there were LOTS of tears, however I was going to do what was best for our family. I always assumed I would stay with Evie for some time before finding another job...probably similar to the one that I had had. (Just not nearly with as wonderful of a company.)
.
However! For the first time in my life, I feel like I can stay home with our girl (something I would have an even worse time parting with now) AND help our family out financially. This newfound community that I’m a part of not only lets me help other women to change their lives and work on getting in the best shape of my life, but it allows me to do it on MY schedule. 🙌🏼
.
No more 8-5...no more commutes to work...plenty of time to be present with my little...and plenty of flexibility for me to work when I need/want to.
.
If you could have your cake 🍰 and eat it too...would you? 🤷🏻‍♀️

The holidays can be so overwhelming. Remember to laugh. Always.

It is calculated, well-planned and timed for maximum destruction of the target’s soul. Often when you are most in need (death of a loved one, birth, pregnancy, illness or special life occasion), the abuser knows how to harm you. If you have been through the discard phase of narcissistic abuse, my heart goes out to you. If people have a hard time understanding what you are telling them, know that comprehending this kind of reality only comes by experiential knowledge. There are many who know your pain. There is hope on the other side. Reach out for support as you navigate the path of recovery. #supportforsurvivors #traumarecovery #lifeafternarcissisticabuse #discard #giveyourselfgrace @kimberlyweekscoaching

Y’all...we don’t need anymore “shoulds.” A beautiful Christmas does not include driving ourselves and others mad.

Rolling my eyes at myself this morning. Do you ever have those days when you come from work and it feels like you got absolutely nothing productive done bc you spent the majority of your day putting out other peoples fires? .
.
Yeah, that was me yesterday. Last night after a horribly long frustrating day at work, I went to yoga and then I ran to the grocery store {the last place I wanted to be at 8:30pm}. and as I was sitting in checkout, all I could think about was coming home, making myself some dinner and climbing into bed. But when I got home do you think that’s what I did? Nope. I spent about 20 minutes responding to coaching emails and then proceeded to watch reruns of Pretty Little Liars til 1am. Like WTF who am I. I hardly ever watch tv. But the longer I sat there exhausted trying to talk myself into going to bed, the longer I sat there growing more tired and unable to move myself off the coach. So not like me at all. But you know what? I’m human. I get stuck in these cycles just like you do.
I don’t always make the best choices for myself and listen to my body. But the difference between old me and new me? I know how to break the cycle. I woke up feeling a little guilty; but I meditated, got my 30 minute workout in and gave myself grace in realizing that today is a new day, and promised myself I’d do better. .
.
You can too. Everyday is a new day to recommit to bettering yourself. We’re not perfect and that’s never an objective I want you to have. My tribe focuses on progress over perfection. One day at a time. So let’s make today a day to progress one step closer towards our goals. #linkinbio to see what this virtual gym thing is all about ☺️ #hereforyouboo

So yesterday I was asked by a team leader for the all of us to share words of wisdom that we can /should live by........hell I dont know, it depends on my mood and situation. 😕

So I scrambled on Pinterest to find something, any ole thing that sounded decent.....until I saw this one. And it really does speak to me on so many levels.....professionally, personally......it applies. Or how about the fact that I've spent the last 2 hrs trying to get this typed up. Or despite my best efforts, I'm sure there will be spelling errors!

#mom_life.....it applies there.
#mompreneurs......yup, there too
My #personal_development, my #StopSmokingCampaign, #christmas_fun......it all applies. I have found my new mantra...... and for the love of God, please give yourself grace.....we are only human....there is only so much we can do, and I've said it before and I'll say it again.....our journeys are meant to be different, they are not supposed to look alike so please dont compare your journey with theirs!

I’ve always felt the butterfly was a symbol of my transformation - mind, body, and spirit. 🦋 I’m in a rut, people...like I just can’t find my way since hitting 100 pounds lost. Confidence tested, determination diminishing, defeat settling in. Perhaps instead of chasing happiness I need to just sit quietly and get to work again on mindset...

When I think about the sweet little friendships my three boys are developing with each other I get overwhelmed with emotion. I believe siblings can be the greatest gift parents give their children.
.
Growing up, my brother Benny was such an influential part of who I was. I adore him and I’m eternally grateful we were able to be so close. We endured so many experiences together and I always had a best friend with me.
.
My three boys love being around each other and I really hope that continues. From day one Emerson has adored Amos and Noah.
.
It has been the HARDEST thing having two more little people around but I absolutely would not change it for anything. When the twins were born Emerson was 16 months old-3 babes so young was HARD. But, it has grown me in ways I would not have had to be stretched and for that I am grateful.
.
So if you’re freaking out because you have young kiddos close in age or you’re adding more littles to your family and trying to figure out how this is going to work... let me just tell you, it’s dang hard at times. But gracious, there is such a depth of joy that can be found in that hardness. Give yourself grace and don’t expect perfection from yourself.
.
The days are long but the years are short- why is this so true?! 😭

We had to wait yesterday in town for a bit, so we stopped and had a photo shoot and dance party in the car 🚘
To be honest, yesterday was a very trying day for me in the parenting world, you wouldn’t know it but that beautiful blue eyed baby big cried most of the day ( he’s not feeling well) and that little girl asked for a piece of gum over 50 times ( not exaggerating). I just have to remember that there could be worse days. Reminding myself over and over how thankful I am for my kids ( poor Brynlee gets left out because she’s in school 😆) Being a mom is not easy. Being a mom and taking care of your mindset is NOT easy. It’s daily work. I strive daily to be patient, to teach my kids to be the most caring human beings they can be, and to have a good attitude ( but also letting them know it’s okay to have bad days as well).

Something I’ve learned along the way. ✌🏻💕

Happy Tuesday! ❤️
.
Brrr...the walk to the bus stop was a cold one! 🧤 Today will be a day to get all things Christmas done. 🎄
.
Some baking 🍪, some shopping 🛒, some card making with my son 💌 and of course, getting my workout 🏋️‍♀️ in. The big day is creeping up on me and the anxiety is starting. 🤦🏼‍♀️

What holiday “to do’s” are still on your list that need to be checked off??? 📝 .

I forgot to set my alarm this morning 🤦‍♀️. I thought it was set. It wasnt. Oops.
I cut the cardio bursts from the workout because I knew I needed to shorten it. And I didn't get to finish the last superset. I only got 2 rounds instead of 4. That does NOT mean that it wasnt a great workout! Because it was. It made me feel so powerful. I loved this one. Probably because of the biceps emphasis. Bicep workouts are hard but I like how I feel when Im done.
Have a great Tuesday! .

Morning rituals... do you have one? Do you make yourself a priority? Is personal growth something important to you?
🌟
Personally, my me time is right away in the morning and before I go to bed. Today I started a new journal morning ritual and I am pumped.
🌟
@msrachelhollis has created this wonderful #StartTodayJournal and I started mine today finally. I am so excited to see this journey unfold and to know that dreams do not need to stay in your dreams. You have the power to make them a goal and create your own reality. #starttoday #giveyourselfgrace #mywish

You know what I like about the journey? It's not given to the fastest or the strongest.
:
:
Its given to the overcomers. The failures that keep getting up. The resilient ones. The ones that hold on!
:
-Ecclesiastes 9:11
:
I removed "perfect" from my dictionary, and replaced it with "progress with grace." God gives us grace. How about showing yourself some? 💜
:
:
No matter when you fall, or how many times you've failed; YOU CAN GET BACK UP AGAIN. The hard part is choosing. :
What decision will you make, Love?

I have some good news & bad news when it comes to your comfort zone & becoming more comfortable & confident with leaving it.

The bad news: in order to grow & become comfortable with going outside your comfort zone, you have to actually and literally go BEYOND your comfort zone. You have to take a giant leap out of it. Not once, not twice but again & again. You have to spend time engaging & participating in things that make you feel uncomfortable, things you are scared to do!

The good news: all you have to do to
become comfortable with going outside your comfort zone, you have to actually and literally go BEYOND your comfort zone. You have to take a giant leap out of it. Not once, not twice but again & again. You have to spend time engaging & participating in things that make you feel uncomfortable, things you are scared to do!

The bad news & the good news are actually very much the same. There are no quick fixes, there are no tricks, there is just action. It’s that simple. At times scary but just that simple.

There is no doubt that doing something outside your comfort zone can be scary, make you feel anxious or nervous. But there is no denying how amazing you feel after you do it. You feel like a bad a**, a magical unicorn ready to take on the world! This amazing feeling sticks with you so much longer than the uncomfortable scariness you felt before you did the thing!! And the more you do the thing the less scary and uncomfortable you feel!

So girl, just DO THE THING! Tell me below in the comments, what are you waiting for?

For all of my girls out there feeling like life is LITERALLY upside down right now.

I SEE you. ❤️

I feel COMPELLED today to put every body’s excuses into PERSPECTIVE. These thoughts have been on my heart today. Time to check ourselves people. 🎤 .
I can’t because I don’t have the time.🤦🏼‍♀️
I cant because I don’t have the space.🤦🏼‍♀️
I can’t because I don’t have the money.🤦🏼‍♀️
I can’t... I can’t... I can’t...🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️
.
Let’s be freakin’ honest with ourselves. It’s not that we can’t... it’s that we WON’T.🤷🏼‍♀️
.
It’s not that you can’t because you don’t have enough time... you just WON’T make the time.🙅🏼‍♀️
It’s not that you can’t because don’t have the space... you just WON’T make the space.🙅🏼‍♀️
It’s not that you can’t because you don’t have the money... you just WON’T invest the money in your self.🙅🏼‍♀️
.
Can’t means you that CAN NOT—it’s not possible—whatsoever. And let’s be real here... you CAN. You just WON’T.🤷🏼‍♀️
.
Because you know who REALLY CAN’T but would give anything to be able to? That person confined to a hospital bed battling stage 3 cancer. That recent amputee trying to adjust to a whole new way of life. That person in a horrible car accident learning how to make their body work again. They CAN’T... yet.🤔
.
So before you use that word CAN’T again, maybe rethink your word choice. Because in reality, you CAN stop pressing snooze—you just won’t. You CAN clear off a corner of your house—you just won’t. You CAN budget better—you just won’t. So rather than saying you CAN’T, next time you’re about to make an excuse, make sure you’re honest with yourself and use the right word choice... “I won’t.” So I’m curious... what WON’T you do for yourself?🤷🏼‍♀️

The last few "Days of Christmas" have been a bit more exciting and overwhelming than expected between planning and hosting our holiday party, attending work parties💃🏻 (and thrilling dress delivery issues leading up to them 🙄), a fun water leak issue at home and finishing up some orders for @CraftedByCamila 🎨.⠀

So yes, I’m a bit behind. But, in the spirit of offering ourselves grace in the craziness of the holidays, I’m going to forgive myself and just get back on track 🙏🏼. I’m working hard to let go of the idea of perfection and just focus on doing the best I can with the time, energy and resources I have.⠀

⍰ On the "second" day of Christmas, let’s talk about grace and realistic expectations. So my question is, what are some ways that you can protect your sanity and enjoy the holidays more by letting go of your expectations of perfection? 🙅🏻‍♀️💯⠀

Remember that saying, “Comparison is the thief of joy”? It seems more true than ever this time of year. For me, I like to remind myself that some (or maybe most) things will not go exactly according to plan, I won’t be able to make the Christmas feast I’ve dreamt up or have time to find (or make) everyone the MOST perfect gift ever. And that’s alright. Because instead of spending as much time worrying about all that COULD be, I'm learning to enjoy what IS. I have beautiful memories of past holidays and have yet to be uninvited to any Christmas celebrations so I think I’m doing a-okay 😜. ⠀

P.S. Isn't our little industrial style Advent calendar so unique and sweet? It fits right into our loft decor, but still feels a little bit cozy since I hand-painted the numbers. I love that we made it ourselves and that it will forever be part of our Christmases together 🎄💞.
