🥗 What I love about a meal plan is the ability work with it as is or use to spark ideas and tailor it for your family! •••
This is the Coconut Ginger Pork @fasterwaytofatloss #fwtflmealplan recipe from this week’s plan with some added wild rice to hit my macros. Soooo good!
•••
It’s so nice to not have to think sometimes and just look at a page and cook. LOL And the kids.. they just didn’t add the sauce!

My Top 3 Breakfast Choices
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
9/10 times I am going to have a smoothie for breakfast. It will have a serving of protein powder, about 1 tablespoon of fat (almond butter), and 1 tablespoon of fiber (unflavored fiber or Chia or Zenbasil seeds). I will mix that with Unsweetened Cashew Milk (it makes it more creamy for some reason) and 9-10 ice cubes.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If I AM NOT going to have the smoothie, here are my 3 top pics:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
#1 Greek yogurt (Fage’ or 2 Good) with @Branbuds, raspberries, (For extra fiber: add @zenbasil seeds or chia and @choczero vanilla syrup)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
#2 Chia seed overnight oats with Greek yogurt
INGREDIENTS (serves 2):
¼ cup organic chia seeds
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 ¼ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
* 1 serving protein powder (you need about 20g protein)
*2 pouched Unflavored Fiber
PREPARATION:
Add all the ingredients to a mason jar and stir.
Put the cover on the mason jar, shake it, and refrigerate for 30 minutes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
#3 Egg white omelet with veggies and cheese and high fiber bread or GG Crispbread crackers ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What is your favorite breakfast lately?

Everyday I start off by saying what I’m grateful for!
It’s a practice that has helped me stay grounded and humble to the opportunity I have, day in & day out to become better!! Do you practice this type of process?

Kids bedrooms play a key part in childhood memories. Do you remember your bedroom as a child?
.
I remember two themes I had over the years soooo well. One being 'Forever Friends' 🐻 and the later one being that navy and gold ☀️🌙🌟 celestial craze in the mid 90's. Loved them both - at the time anyway 😆👍.

I was just about to get up this morning when this guy crawled in to bed and asked me to cuddle. First thought was no, you go back to bed and I’m going to workout. Then I thought for a second. I don’t know how many days are left that he will want to snuggle and he’s not a snuggly kid to begin with. I can figure something else out for dinner that’s quicker and do my workout after work. Plans can change, roll with it, it will work out. So I reset my alarm and we snuggled. #totallyworthit #busymomlife #snuggleyourbabies

Combining a family session with a high school senior session made it easy for this family with many busy schedules to find one date that worked for everybody. I can create a custom session for you, too! #busyfamily #busymomlife #seniorpictures #seniorportraits #todolist #familyphotography .

You know how it is, you plan something that seems fairly simple, go to do it and then half an hour later you realize that you were distracted by family life .... walked away from what was going to take you a few minutes and then on to other more "important" things. This is ME... every day, and sometimes all day. Haha! Anyone else do this? I often find focusing on one thing a hard challenge. My mind is so busy with the list that I have created in my head. I rarely stay on track. This is also possibly why I find it hard to incorporate working out regularly into my weekly routine. My intentions are always inspiring! 😂 My actual actions are not always so incredible lol. That's why I need to find ways to make most of what I do simpler. I'm not an heavy makeup person! I like to look like myself but obviously more polished and pretty.... perhaps more awake too🤪. I didn't really know where to start with clean makeup! I knew foundation was an important part of my switch as obviously that's applied all over the face and usually left on all day! I also heard about hope Masacara contains ingredients used in car tires!! 🤢 So before I became a Beautycounter momma, I invested in the flawless in 5 makeup set. The appeal of being able to change my look in 5 minutes, using 6 clean products and looking like I had actually slept the night before was exciting. If your trying to switch your makeup out, care about the safety of your products AND want to look great then I highley reccomend choosing this set. Its such a great deal and literally all you need for your daily routine! It makes guessing about what to pick a non factor as you get, foundation, concealer, mascara, brows, mascara, blush and lipgloss included! Let me know if you would like to know more or check out the whole set and the options through my link in bio.💗 .

Ever wondered what to do with all your children’s crap that you feel you should keep? Well listen to me waffle on for 8 minutes about how I sort my lot out. It’s not pretty, it’s not staged. It’s me hopefully giving practical advice about how a real family exists under all the detritus that 6 children make.

Tuesday, we worked to restore calm to a busy family homes master bedroom.
In this beautiful three bedroom house space is of the essence and rooms are often multifunctional. This is why the parents bedroom ends up a bit of dumping ground, for things that can’t be dealt with at that moment, things that don’t have a home yet or stuff that’s being stored till it leaves the house! All of this very quickly becomes clutter and a big job.
We started by making space, taking things out for charity, to sell, and returning things to the area of the home they rightly belong. We discussed solutions to storage and how to make it easier to keep on top of things.
We are not finished yet but made a great start and I am looking forward to going back next week.
A bedroom needs to be a calm relaxing space to help promote good sleep. #decluttering #bedroom #masterbedroom #dumping #busymum #busyfamily #lessismore #lesstomanage #organise #calm #relaxing #journey #family #home

Raise your hand if you have a big event coming up🙋‍♀️. Is it a weeding, trip, pictures, graduation? (My answer is a flat YES to all of it).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here are a few of my best tips tips that can help you (and me) stay on track while celebrating.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. SKIP SECONDS-Make your plate and leave it at that. Leftovers are so much better anyway.
2. IMAGINE YOUR PLATE IS A PEACE SIGN- Imagine your dinner plate as a peace sign, the two side portions are each 40% and the bottom is 20%. Put the lean protein on one side and the vegetables on the other. The final, smaller 20% is for the starchy sides/dessert, which you don't want to be having too much of.
3.WATER: DRINK IT- Aside from the facy that water helps to fill you up so you eat less, fiber needs water to work its magic. Aim for 3 liters throughout the day.
4. IF YOU KJOW YOU HAVE A SWEET TOOTH, PLAN FOR IT- Decide ahead of time that you are going to indulge in dessert and go light on the side dishes. Apply the 3 bite rule for dessert. This way you don't feel like a failure when you eat the desserts anyway.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Which one is easiest to follow for you? Which is the hardest? #1, #2, #3, or #4?

Let get talkin! Listening to kids can help parents gage how they're doing. Giving children an opportunity to open up helps us see where they are emotionally, socially, and with other areas of life... 🗣This week's table topic is: "What are 5 things you are grateful for?" (No repeats allowed 😉)

Did you know that unless your eating produce straight from a local garden that frozen fruits and vegetables 🥦 are better for you?
It's true! Produce that we buy from the markets were picked before they were fully mature/ripe to prevent them from spoiling before hitting the shelves. That means they didn't reach their full nutrient potential and what they did have, degrades during processing, transport and storage.

Want to eat fresh? Then reach into your freezer where your produce was picked at its peak and the nutrients were locked in.

See our current menu at www.fixintoeat.com or stop by 8940 W Bell Rd #101 to check it out!

Easy Italian on a lacrosse night? That’s Im-pasta-bowl! Nope it’s not!
•••
But basically we aren’t eating spaghetti LOL The kids LOvE @eatbanza chickpea pasta and me... I put my meat sauce right over brussel sprouts!
•••
I’m a true believer that what we really love about pasta... is the sauce. So find a good clean recipe, throw in your lean protein and make it work for your goals! Who needs pasta?! Get saucy!

Now I know this isn’t an amazing transformation picture, but I’m super proud of the progress between these two images in three weeks. 👆🏻 The program I’m currently doing is a Barre program inspired by ballet and Pilates. So not super high impact, intense or heavy weight lifting involved.
And, 5.5 weeks ago I either fractured or very badly sprained my big toe so I’ve had to take a break and then modify and reduce the impact on my foot. There was also a week long all-inclusive Mexico wedding trip in there! 🍻
Even with low impact and modifying I can tell I’m getting stronger, more flexible and my balance has improved so much.
It’s not just about celebrating a huge weight loss or big accomplishment, we need to celebrate the little milestones along the way and be proud! 🌟
Maybe I could be a ballerina after all! 😉 🩰

🍷Happy national drink wine day!!!! This is a random day I can stand behind. 🍷
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m so grateful I stumbled onto clean crafted wine. No more puffy face the next day, sulfite hangover, or uncomfortable belly. The best part is with no added sugars I’m drinking delicious wine that is 30% to 40% fewer calories. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Interested? You should be! These are delicious and chosen by a level 3 Som! If you don’t like what you order, there is an incredible guarantee. Simple snap me a pic of the label and you will get a credit to try a different bottle. You are not out anything for trying these delicious wines. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
BTW...
Spilling your wine is the adult version of losing your balloon 🎈

Did you know that you can cook with Young Living essential oils? This is a quick and easy dinner.
Roasted organic potatoes with olive oil, sea salt and pepper and a yummy gluten free French dip from Aldi.

All of it is from Aldi, besides the lemon vitality essential oil I used on the asparagus.
I washed the potatoes and asparagus with Thieves fruit and veggie wash, to get all the yuck off, steamed the asparagus for 6 min., since it’s super thin, and then tossed it in a mixture of olive oil, sea salt and 2 drops of lemon vitality essential oil.
Sooooo good! Try it!

This might be your biggest step to making peace with your body right NOW..❤️⁣

If you’re a boxing pro at beating YOURSELF up like I was for ages, I’m SURE you know that finding peace and contentment with yourself happens in stages.⁣

➡️These are just steps that I desperately needed to BELIEVE in order to make that progress toward self-love in my journey! (**Drop an emoji if you’re feelin’ me!) ⁣

🙏Don’t put conditions on it. (You still love your kids when they wear you down, so treat yourself the same way, even when your pants are extra tight).⁣

🙏Find healthy food you ACTUALLY love. If that fit chick on social media lives on cabbage soup and baby food, it doesn’t mean YOU have to. There’s so much joy in experimenting and discovering what YOU love! (Flexibility will mean more LONG-TERM SUCCESS for you!)⁣

🙏This includes exercise! If you HATE running, don’t be miserable just because you think it’s the only thing that works. Find YOUR jam… ‘cause you’ll be more likely to stick with that. ⁣

🙏 Punch that “inner mean girl” right in her lying face. (You know who she is, hiding inside all of us.) Does her opinion matter? No. Don’t take her advice. Prove her wrong and do exactly what she says you can’t do. ⁣

Is this something you needed to hear today? If YES, and you want a tribe to help you tell that inner mean girl where to shove it, drop an emoji!! Let’s chat it up! ⁣

❤️❤️❤️

Ace has definitely been teething. And today when he seemed to be chewing on something that I knew wasn't his food, I finally got him to let me see what it was. To my surprise, it was one of his puppy teeth. 🦷 Wondering if the puppy tooth fairy needs to come tonight? 🤦‍♀️🐶🎁 #WaughFamilyLife

Happy Family Day! .
What better post for Family Day then a photo of our family... right? .
I guess I am failing at parenthood.
I have gone back two years in my photos and I don’t have a picture of all 4 of us together! .
We are a divide and conquer family.
Steven and Colton are busy with Colton’s hockey games.
Kendra and I are busy with Kendra’s cheerleading competitions.
Somehow the weeks fly by and we only see each other in passing. .
Family life has changed since I was a child but our love is strong.
I hope you get to spend Family Day with your loved ones. .
🍍Aloha! TL

There’s ONE thing I know is comin’ in life: ups and downs.🎢 They don’t determine whether we reach our goals.

Nothing holds us back except our MINDSET.
EVERYONE falls off the bandwagon! Even trainers and fitness gurus! I can’t COUNT how many times I’ve seen fitness experts who look AMAZING and they talk about how they flew off the rails last weekend, eating and drinking with friends and now they were paying for it.
The DIFFERENCE?

They weren’t beating themselves up or avoiding getting back into the routine.

They didn’t see it as a setback, or an excuse to give up. 🔥THAT right there is power. 🔥

That lesson has been a total GAMECHANGER for me in learning CONSISTENCY.

Me: 1

Excuses: 0

Excuse me while I grab my favorite superfood shake and CRUSH this day 💥👋 #lifestyle #positivemindset #backatitagain #boss

Watched an excellent documentary on Netflix last week it was so good and educational that I watched it last night with Des and even he agreed it was very good and he learned loads too.. Long story short "Doctors and researchers explore the possibility that people changing your diet in certain ways will help eliminate and control diseases like cancer, heart disese and diabetes" really interesting and I would highly recommend you give it a watch👌👌 #netflix #forksoverknives #wholefooddiet #healthyliving #fooddocumentary #weightlossdocumentary #healthylifestyle #weightlossjourney #weightloss #busyfamily #workingmums

Good morning - sorry for the lack of posts - between wrapping up the basketball and cheer seasons, prepping for work travel, prepping for short family trip, friend sleepovers, and baby lambs/goats - I’ve stayed keto, but it hasn’t been pretty! A lot of salads and cheese sticks. And coffee ;) #ketolifestyle #ketoparenting #ketofamily #busyfamily #ketotraveler

Happy half-term week to those of you enjoying some home-time with the little people. 👶👩‍👧‍👧👨‍👦‍👦
We often get asked whether stone flooring is durable enough for a kitchen - especially by those clients with a family and pets 🐶🐰🐱 Our answer is always the same: reclaimed or aged stone is a perfect material for a busy household as it can easily take knocks and scratches while also being easily cleaned. It is much the same as how a mark can easily be hidden in a patterned fabric. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today is also National Random Acts of Kindness Day - quite apt considering the issues that have been raised in the media over the past few days. A little gesture can go a long way to making someone's day or change their mindset for the better. 🧡
Have you done anthing to be extra kind today?

This afternoon I done some meal prep for the week, here is what I made.....
A roast dinner for tonight and cupcakes 🧁💕
Mexican Chicken with all the veggies for fajitas or tacos on Monday night😋
Lasagne for Tuesday night 😍
Potatoes and veggies for Wednesday night and we will put some things on the bbq to go with it 💕
.
I made tuna pasta and satay chicken for lunches for the next few days, as well as a load of fruit and veggies chopped and ready to go for snacks! The snacks for the kids packed lunches are all ready to go each day too 😍
.
Doing this on a Sunday helps so much with all our busy schedules through the week ☺️ It took me 3 hours in total and that was even including cleaning time 🤩🥳😍

The most difficult part is just saying yes. Taking that first step and committing to yourself.
It’s scary. It’s hard. The fear of failure and giving up is real.

But it’s worth it. You are worth it. You will feel amazing. It’s exciting and you don’t have to give up on yourself this time.
When you are ready, the excuses won’t matter anymore. You will do it even if it’s hard because you know it’s worth it. You are worth it.
Are you ready to commit? Are you ready to take that step?! Is it your time?!! You can do this!
Drop an 👍🏻 below or send me a message if you are ready to do this for YOU!!

"A joyful heart is good medicine..." -Proverbs 17:22
May your day be filled with love that brings joy to your soul. Valentine's Day takes on many forms, I've learned over time. From the innocent exchange of cartoon paper cards addressed in crayon and sprinkled cupcakes & cookie parties as a child, to the excitement of the potential of receiving a CandyGram from a secret admirer as we got a little older, to the fancy planned out dinner dates and the overly thought out gifts when you’re just getting to know each other and want to make a good impression, to the heartfelt cards and simple celebrations after your relationship is more established, then the "oh...is it Valentine's AGAIN?!🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♂️" when you're up to your eyeballs in kids and their needs, work long opposite shifts, and struggle to stay sane on a daily basis. At that stage, dates on the calendar mean little, but the love remains. The same butterfly tummy feelings can appear at the most unexpected times. I see love when he takes the baby and tells me to rest, when he sweeps after dinner and loads the dishwasher as I finish my meal in peace, when he cleans my perpetually messy minivan with the same care he gives his fancy classic cars each week, when he does the laundry and never expects a medal or even 'thanks' for the mundane household tasks because he feels it's only right to work as a partnership. The way he loves me and our children has shown me that the fairytales we read as kids may not exist, but the truer ones we write a page in each day are even better because they are OUR story. It's sort of a messy story at times with the sad parts, happy parts, & plot twists😅. The entire story is laced with an undying love that transcends the poor attitudes, moodswings, perceived indifference, and plain exhaustion that tend to happen to many couples as family life takes over couple life. We step back, take inventory of what we're lacking, readjust, and we press on together even when it's rough...because in the end, if we're fortunate, it'll be just us again. This is love. This is real. This is the foundation we built our family on and where our children first learn love. I'll ♥️you forever @roadreychevy

50 Under 5k | It’s so appropriate that our 50 under 5k falls on Valentine’s Day! I get to #sharethelove for one of my favorite designers and people out there - @candy.scott @mooddesignbuild. To be honest, I have a bit of a girl crush on her, too. This kitchen is classic with just the right touch of edge to it. Those pendants are fabulous! Your homework: go follow her and share the love!

The last couple days have been quite different for me! I have been home alone, 😱 well just me and Wrigley I guess. Brandon is away at work and Easton is staying at Grandpa & Grandmas since we don’t have daycare for a week. ..
I miss them both so much💙💚! But I’m also really enjoying the time to myself. Some solid sleeps, catching up on girly Netflix shows, and practicing some self care! Plus I know Easton is in great hands and having a blast! 🎀Moms - it’s ok to take a break sometimes. Refill your cup! Time away from your kiddos is a good thing, for everybody involved! ..
Doesn’t the pic of me and Wrigley make it seem like I’m smothering him since he’s the only one here. Lol 😹 #JustLoveMe

As a personal health coach to many busy parents and professionals, I actually employ my own set of coaches!! It is a vital reason I have become so in love with the business I am building!! What is a coach to me: Someone that can or has learned something and passes it forward to others!! Well, guess what! That’s my entire vision for this business!! Pass the opportunity of Health Forward to YOU!

Who better to learn from than someone who has been in your seat, wanting to make changes, has let some things slip but now has the growing desire for more in their life while balancing an entire schedule!! Ever have this type of feeling? If so then let’s talk more because there is so much we can learn from each other!! And you may even love coaching as much as I do!!

Here we bowl again! 🤭 This was another easy win before lacrosse practice this week! Fish taco bowls!
•••
🐟 Tilapia sprinkled with my favorite Trader Joe’s taco seasoning and thrown in the oven
🍲 Brown Rice in the rice cooker
🍅 A little mild salsa
🥬 Chopped cabbage
🥄 Black beans
🧀 DF Cheddar with a smidge of DF sour cream
•••
The kids made their own versions with their favorite ingredients and boom we were out the door once again!
•••
Figured it was worth a share if you were in the middle of the “What am I making for dinner?” daily moment!

To me, there’s just something about sitting down to a warm bowl of soup that puts a smile on my face and makes me say... FALL IS FINALLY HERE!!! 🍁 I wish I had time to make homemade soup every night... but #lifehappens and this time of the year is busy for our family! I was at @samsclub the other day and was so pleasantly surprised when I came across the #membersmark homemade soup! It’s made fresh every day in their own kitchen, has no preservatives, is made with fresh herbs and ingredients, and is never frozen! Those all check the box in the Houghton family! It’s so yummy and totally tastes homemade! I may just not tell my family and let them assume it is.... giggle 😉 I don’t think they’d be able to tell the difference! #fall #soupseason #samsclub #ad #expectsomethingspecial #familydinner

Часто зову детей - Маша, Саша, Мария, Алекс - это не 4 ребёнка - это всего два! Пока позову Максима - вспомню трёх его братьев и Грега даже приплету .. иногда мне они говорят - мам, я не Андрей .. нo что делать с этим не знаю 🤷🏻‍♀️ ах ничего наверно не смогу сделать -это часть жизни многодетной семьи👌🤪 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 🇬🇧Do you ever make mistakes in kids’ names? I - do it too often .. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Would call three wrong names before I get the right one.. sometimes they tell me “mum I am not Andrey” but often they don’t .. got used to it.. I guess it’s part of the fun living within big family..

Stealing Moments; Here & There 💕✨
.
The last time we went out on a date was in November 2018. Dates are so far apart that I can remember each one and every door he held open for me. I think we are growing into understanding that we appreciate the dates but want to focus on the day-to-day saving space and opening doors to each other’s heart. Work on our life. Eye contact and talking about what’s in your heart during the day, is the bare minimum soul connection to carry us onto the next time we can be alone without the children. For now, 5 dirham Karak, strollers, books, children running around... finding and stealing moments within our beautiful chaos.
. ‎آخر مرة طلعنا فيها كان في نوفمبر 2018. التواريخ متباعدة جدًا لطلعاتنا لدرجة أنب بتذكر كل باب فتحه لي. بعتقد أننا بدينا نتفهم أنو نقدر الطلعات لكين دايرين نفوكس على المساحات اليومية وفتح أبواب القلب. اَي ما عندنا وقت و الشئ الوحيد الممكن ندقنه هي الصراحة في الكلام و النظرات. في الوقت الحالي مافي مجال للطلعات و الدلع ، 5 دراهم لكبايت كرك ، سترولر شريف ، كتب ،و أطفال بيجرو يمين شمال... ما اجمل فوضتنا الجميلة.

It’s not lost on us that we are very fortunate to be able to combine our talents and our passions to provide for our little family. Running a family business, while neither of us have regular income brings plenty of stresses but the opportunity to partner everyday is worth it all. ⁣

If you have dreams, go chase them and see were it takes you. The joy of knowing that even if we fail, we can never look back in the future and regret not giving it a go. Regret is one of the worst feelings.

Happy friyay!! I’ve booked this spot for tonight as we’ve been in the house for 3 weeks now and so far only the kids have used it!! I’ve always wanted a roll top bath and I can’t wait for some peace and a long soak. What are the chances?!?! 🙈😂 #rolltopbath #bathrooms #myhomedecor #house #busyfamily #relaxing_time
