It’s not the most flattering video but it tells part of my story. I didn’t go into this program while pregnant to lose weight, knowing I would be gaining but I did want to be healthy and do what I can to make the best vessel I can provide to our little one.
Fact: I have gained weight
Fact: I have gained muscle
Fact: I have started to lean out
Fact: I am happier, healthier, more energized and have more confidence.
I cannot tell you the last time I had gaps of space in my workout pants (if ever) let alone going on 27 weeks pregnant. This isn’t the end of my story it’s just the beginning, I cannot wait to see where this story leads me. Our bodies are incredible, we just need to give them their chance to shine. Why aren’t you giving yourself a chance? Stop watching me do it and join me! Also stop comparing yourself to others, you don’t know if they are at the beginning, middle or end of their journey or what it took to get there. Just be you and do your thing. We all come in different shapes and sizes, embrace how you feel not what you look like! You are beautiful, give yourself the credit it deserves!
I'm sharing this picture today because, although I know this to be true and I really lived by it last year and that, among many other changes, really started to shift my life for the better, I've noticed recently that since I've gone backwards in my health journey in the last year or so, I also let go of the postive mindset as well. I know that thinking positive and opening your mind to things you want or want to work towards, will really help you get there. We've all heard this time and time again. But, I'm a negative Nelly! Lol I hate to say it, but I am. My mind will always go to worst case scenario. All my life, since I was a kid. A lot of that comes from anxiety, which looking back, I realize I had my whole life. Do you know my biggest fear as a kid was losing my mom? I literally obsessed about it and freaked out crying when she was 5 minutes late. I dont know where that came from but the weird and scary part is, that I did lose her! Now I dont believe my worries about it, caused the outcome but I do think it shaped me into thinking bad things were going to happen. Well, I've been through a shit load of bad things. I've also overcome most of it and I have to appreciate the postive side of those things. I find, now that I am wanting to lose weight again, I'm looking at myself as not worthy, not pretty or skinny enough to be confident. WHAT!?!?! What the "f" is that?? I have 2 kids to teach and raise to be confident and content individuals, no matter their look or size. I see that they have anxiety as well. So, for today as we run our errands, I will go out with confidence and a happy smile (which I dont really do lol) I want to see if my changes will create more positive outcomes every day. Ps, on to day 3 of eating healthy. I'm already sleeping better without mounds of chocolate in my system. Really I cant believe the difference. I'm really going to try and think positively for every goal I want to achieve in the coming months. I know I can do it because I did it before. I can do it again. .

Littles off to school for their first day👫.. I took advantage of an earlier workout 🏋🏻♂️ than what has become my new normal. Feels great to sweat 💦 it out and be able to move on with my day. 🙂 #buildingmuscle #girlswholift #newnormal #sweat #lifting #sweatsesh #takingtimeforme #puttingmyselffirst #gettingfit #sparkle #workingoutathome #workingout #strongereveryday #backandbiceps #hotmessmom #momlifebelike #momoftwo #countrygirl #watchout #goaldigger
Typen der NÆGTER at finde de lange bukser frem endnu!! Min indre kalender siger sommer 🤜🏼. Til de bekymrede, så vil jeg blot give et pip 🐥 Jeg er igen ok ovenpå igår. Det var en hård omgang og måtte med beklagelse i min grådfyldte stemme, sige undskyld til min læge og sygeplejerske i Grindsted. Men som lovet igår, så finder jeg styrken igen idag og fortsætter min rejse! #igotthis 💪 #nevergivingup #keepfighting #dearpainletsbreakup #superkronikker #summervibes #opirøvenmeddet #puttingmyselffirst
It’s ok to say no if something doesn’t serve your purpose..... It’s ok to say no to the biscuits being passed around the office..... It’s ok to say no to the lunch invitation if you’ve already planned your lunches for the week.... It’s ok to say no to after work drinks if it means having to skip the gym....... It’s ok to say no.

Get yourself a girl gang who picks you up on the days you really don’t wanna. After a full work day and then an hour in a HOT car, I was struggling to get the motivation to workout. Luckily, my girls always have me covered!!
I modified, it wasn’t the prettiest, but it’s done and that’s the important piece!! Not everyday will be perfect, but it’s about that consistency!

Just taking some pics to learn to love the skin I'm in...
Its not easy learning to put yourself first when you've always put others first...
I'm not happy with myself and my journey but its learning that its okay if things take wrong turn... Knowing giving up on myself won't get me back to where was happy with the number on the scale, but seeing the change in the size of clothes I wear helps a bit!
I'm my own worst critic but who isn't?
I'm a 40yr old, 5'10 186lb married females who is learning to live my best life given, all over again!

It’s amazing how you can spend years (almost 10) trying mould and sculpt yourself into a different shape because you thought that it would make you “healthy” or happy.. and then one day (or in my case weeks and weeks of the same thoughts and feelings) you wake up and decide it’s time to start practicing what you preach. It’s time to focus on the internal you, the one your family and friends know and love, instead of the external being that strangers see when they walk past, because that’s not who YOU are! •
Something has shifted in me this year and I’m determined to make these new habits stick, my goals have changed and my focus has been redirected. That doesn’t mean I’m not going to exercise or eat healthy, it just means I’m done with living in “flight or fight mode” all the time. It’s time for a MASSIVE chill pill and to start actually listening to my body more. •
Life is one big adventure, sometimes the roads we take are busy, like driving to work in peak hour traffic knowing you’re late, and other times they can be long and winding, like driving along the great ocean road, you know where you’re going but you don’t mind stopping along the way and enjoying the sights. I think life requires a good balance of both, just don’t get stuck on the same lane for too long ✌🏽 #wordsofwisdomwednesday #irrelevantpicture
1 year—-> 49 ppls lives I’ve changed. .
Think about that.... if i would have said no, where would those 49 people be? .
When i first signed up did i know I’d be able to help this many ppl? HECK NO. Did i know everything about fitness? nope! Still don’t! But what i do know is that this feeling of purpose and helping others is the greatest blessing I’ve ever had 💕 .
Thinking about this today has made me so excited to see how many more people I’ll be able to help by next year!
& what’s a celebration without presents right?! Who wants to do the honor of being my 50th person I’ve helped?! Let’s celebrate! 🎁🎉
It’s no surprise to me I am my own worst enemy. — If you sang that, then we can totally be friends.
But, in all seriousness, I was my own worst enemy.
I used to tell myself all the excuses in the world as to why I couldn’t put my self first or why I couldn’t take care of myself.
I told myself I didn’t have the time to workout. I didn’t have the time to do something that would give me the energy I was lacking so much. I used food as a crutch, specifically when my emotions and stress were high. It wasn’t used to serve and fuel my body. I didn’t care. I was at a point in my life where I was just trying to make it through the day, that I didn’t put any thought into how I could do better for me.
But, then I decided to stop being my own worst enemy.
I decided to SAY YES to this journey and do something that would put me on a path of pouring into myself, physically and mentally.
I started as a challenger. I completed my workouts. I learned how to fuel my body correctly. I gained a community of women who were working towards similar goals as I was, and they held me accountable for mine. I felt like I was finally getting my life back, after what was an extremely difficult year.
Then I decided I needed a little extra accountability, wanted to help others by introducing them to something that changed my life, and to be honest, ya girl has a whole lot of student loan debt that she needs to pay off, so I took the plunge and started coaching.
With coaching, not only did I get to continue working on myself through my workouts and nutrition, I also began reading personal development which really helped to completely change my mindset. Coaching helped me feel like I had fully gotten my life back. It helped me grow even more and become the version of myself that I want to be.
There is nothing I would change about my journey, about this process, okay maybe I wish I started sooner. But the point is, I started. I started taking care of myself. I started being the best I could be. When I did that I became a better person for everyone else in my life.

You do not need to prove to anyone that you are worth what you desire, not even yourself. You do not need to convince the world you are worthy of deserving your dreams. You do not need to go though suffering to earn abundance. You do not have to hit a low to learn a lesson that will then deem you worth of more. .
You already are worth what you desire, worth success, worth happiness, worth good times, worth wealth, worth approval, worth love.....need I go on? .

I have committed to myself and this journey I am on!
There are days that I don’t want to press play, but I know that once I am done, I will feel amazing!
I am loving being home and getting back into a routine. I know it is hard to make time for things and we use that as an excuse for a lot of things.
Let’s me real for a sec...do you take time to binge watch on Netflix (I still do) and do you scroll through Facebook/Insta for long periods of time (I still do). I was doing those things for WAY too long a year and a half ago and there are days that I still do them, but not as much.
The reason it changed is because I needed a BIG change! I decided to adjust my routine and how I was using my time. I wake up earlier than I was before to workout and I go to bed earlier as well. I know I am different than you, but you know there is time somewhere in your schedule to fit in 30 minutes at home to sweat it out so that you can go on with your day with a positive mindset!
I am about to start my 4th year of teaching and I love the fact that my mood is so much better for my kids because I put myself first each day!
I get up and press play everyday ❤🙏❤ in the insane early hours of the morning why???? To make me a better person ❤❤🙌🙌 not that I wasn't a good person before but I was cranky.... a lot.
So last night I went to bed feeling cranky and mad. Mad at myself for falling for someone I shouldn't have #reallife So I set an even earlier alarm #becauseican and got up and pushed play. The first 30 min one I did I was still cranky and mad at myself, the second 30 mins I was smiling ❤🙏 Over 1.5 years ago I found something that works for me. Something healthy that makes me feel better, connections that have inspired me through all the shit I have been through. For that I am forever greatful ❤❤😍😍 #fitmomma #fitnesscoaching #livingmybestlife #lovinglife ❤️ #doingsomethingforme #doingthisforme #positivemindset #changeinmindset #fullcup #singlemomlife #inspiration #dreambiglittleone #momofatoddler #momlifebelike #makinggoals #fightingthenorm #settingexpectations #selfcare #confidence #puttingmyselffirst #itsoktomakemistakes #weareallhuman #startingthingsoffright #fightingtemptation #exerciseroutine #confidenceinmyself #noregrets
🌿Selfcare Day 1 || Taking time for yourself is healing🍃
So I decided to to a “selfcare” week where I just try to focus on myself, cause everyone need to heal sometimes. Today I learned that it’s okay to take a minute for yourself or delay someone or something when it’s in your benefit. Not being okay, is okay and putting yourself first is not always selfish but selfcare. [ #selfcare #thoughts #learning #selfcareweek #puttingmyselffirst #healing #selflove ]
Since childhood, I've been told to feel less, to care less, to be less emotional, to not "allow" myself to be upset - as if emotions can be controlled. I've been directed by parents, teachers, family, friends, strangers, coworkers, and many others to suppress my emotions, to repress my feelings, and to be less vocal or demonstrative of how I feel and what my opinions are. And the funny thing is, these words of advice would apply to angry feelings, insecure feelings, feelings of discomfort and also happy feelings, feelings of closeness, feelings of pleasure, feelings of gratitude, feelings of warmth.
For years, I allowed their opinions to triumph over mine. I allowed their views on how I'm supposed to be take precedence over my own views and perspective, and I denied my own truth.
This is a gentle reminder to myself and to anyone out there who resonates with this experience: You are free to live YOUR truth. The more you dull your own shine to fit into someone else's idea of who you are "supposed" to be, the more you will lose yourself. So take a moment to remind yourself of who you are before worrying about who they think you're supposed to be. Sit with yourself and introspect. Ask yourself, "Does this feel right? Does this sit well with me?" Your inner & higher self, grounded in love and safety, they know. They know you, they see you, and they love you. (Remember, Suze, no one in this world knows you the way you know you 💜)
-I have to remind myself daily that I matter...
-I have to remind myself daily that l come first...
-I have to remind myself daily that focusing on myself is NOT selfish it’s necessary!
-YOU NEED TO REMIND YOURSELF TOO!

This was not the afternoon I had planned. But my son fancied staying in as he wasn’t feeling 100% and so wanted to know what indoor jobs we could do.
Who knew having a clothes clear out together would be so much fun?
I am not ‘into’ clothes in the slightest but recently, even I’ve had to admit that my very old T-shirts with holes under the arms and jeans that are falling apart simply can’t be worn any more. They’re not even fit for a charity shop.
So out it all went. I find letting go of ‘stuff’ really easy. If only letting go of emotional things was just as easy!
There’s now space for the pair of dungarees I’ve been eyeing up and at least one new brightly coloured thermal vest! And if I ever want to wear a sequinned mask and full set of pearls, then I know where they are too!
Isn’t life funny? Each and every day I’m learning more about myself! For three months, I had my meds increased and after decreasing them back down over a week ago, I realized how ‘zombie-like’ I was feeling!! My head has become a lot more clearer and starting to feel more emotions again! I’m feeling a lot more ‘human’! Don’t get me wrong, my meds have saved me but knowing my limits has saved my sanity!
My sleeping is slowly improving and now I feel like I can get back into routine again! My wrist has 98% healed and feeling normal again! I really wanna get back into my fitness again and feel fit!
I’m slowly starting to feel like I’m getting back control of my life again and getting closer to smashing my goals! I’m starting to feel more like ‘me’ again!

✨✨Long Post Alert✨✨
I hesitate to post this because I’m so embarrassed of the picture on the right. I have always been a healthy and fit person. Even after my daughter was born, I was able to get down to my pre pregnancy weight in less than 3 weeks after Audrey’s birth. Things really started to change after the birth of my second child Wesley. I was hell bent on breastfeeding and I made sure I was getting plenty of nutrients and ate what I wanted. When Wesley was 10 months old, I started going to the gym lots and counting my macros. I participated in the Spartan race 2.5 years ago (left picture) and felt amazing! I was so proud to have accomplished the huge goal of losing 15 lbs and being in great shape. Fast forward to the past few months... (right picture.) iI have been putting my self care on the back burner since January. I’ve put every ounce of energy into my business and taking care of my family. My gym membership is dusty, my food choices are atrocious and my self confidence has plummeted. I thought “well I don’t have two hours to go to gym so there’s no way I can get fit again.” WRONG ATTITUDE!!! It clicked while on vacay that I am no longer in the “season” where I can take the time to drive, wait for a class to start, take class and drive home (2hours.) I am in the new season where I can do an at home workout program and take that extra time to meal prep. I’m writing this because I need to hold myself accountable. I need to start making myself a priority again. I need to embrace the season I’m in and do something about it. I know I’m not the only woman or mom that puts everyone else’s needs before my own. I hope you will all embrace the next couple months of me sharing my journey, process, meal preps and food posts. I’m super excited to get healthy and strong again! .
