Conducting a science experiment with my son: color dyes and the affects they have on celery. 
This was last night on FB and you can see the 12 hour mark in my stories today.

keep going until there’s nothing else to exhaust
.
.
I heard this last night from a friend @bethbarker711 who was talking about what she did to reach her goal.  She has been achieving great things lately and I’ll admit, for a moment I thought, good for her, she got a lucky break! (and a bit of jealously)
.
.
Until I heard this
.
.
I think this is the piece SO MANY of us DON’T SEE when we see other people watch their dreams turn into reality. We usually write someone else’s success off as LUCK. and I’m not saying you need to work 24/7,  but until you reach your goal, whether it’s looking for that special someone, a fitness goal, finding the right job, a legal battle, finding the home of your dreams....leave no stone unturned....don’t accept pre-mature defeat, continue on

My guys in their Burt’s Bees Christmas jammies for the mini photo session my sister and I tried to do on our own! It was a success! Not sure how many more times they are going to let me do this, but I’m in love with this picture!  #christmascardworthy 
PS-They didn’t want to take these off after the picture because they are so soft and comfy!! 🎅🏼 ~Shop this pic and more by:

There is no pill, wrap, pink drink or magic potion that is going to make it happen for you, there are millions of ways to drop weight BUT what about maintaining it once you’ve lost it? With the pills and wraps and drinks you aren’t creating any habits, you’re just putting a band aid on it. 
You want real lasting results that stick? 
CHANGE YOUR LIFESTYLE. 
Change what you put in your body
Change how you think about food
Change how you think about exercise
STOP making excuses. 
Life will always be busy, there’s always going to be something getting in your way and you can choose to let it bring you down or you can choose to stand up and deal with it, your choice.
I can provide you with all the accountability 
all the tools, meal plans, motivation and a nutrient dense daily meal that will curve cravings, increase energy, reduce bloating, lower blood sugar and fill in all the gaps in your diet.  What I can’t do, is do it for you. 
YOU have to do the work, you have to apply it to your daily life, and you are more than capable. 
Stop allowing yourself to make excuses. 
You do have the time, you can afford it because you NEED it, you will find the motivation in your results, you are not to old,  it’s not too hard, whatever excuse your telling yourself just stop!  You are just one step away from changing your life and you are too busy making excuses and fearing the outcome to just take the step and see what you’ve been missing! 
Comment 💪🏻 if you’re ready to let go of the excuses and go into the new year with a whole new mindset and motivation to make it the best year yet! .

Words are so powerful! They truly have the ability to lift someone up or completely crush them. 
One of my favorite things about playing sports and working at camps was doing affirmations. I STILL have my affirmation books - those words of encouragement will always bring me joy and make me smile! This could be because words of affirmation is my second highest love language 🥰

If you’re on a journey and need a cheerleader let me know, I’d be happy to cheer you on! 💕

Can grief be a catalyst for something positive? When losing someone entering their golden years forces you reconsider your current path ⁣

Who doesn’t love a massage?? The application of essential oils topically combined with massage is simple to do, yet extremely powerful in the healing process. It increases the benefits of massage and the efficacy of the oils on and within the body. Massage increases circulation and absorption, helps improve lymphatic flow, and aids in the release of toxins. It can soothe nerve endings, relax muscles, and relieve stress and tension in the body.
.
If I get a massage, I always bring my trusty Deep Blue soothing blend or my fave lately, the AromaTouch massage blend (Basil, Grapefruit, Cypress, Marjoram, Lavender, Peppermint) as it encourages muscle tissue healing, relaxes & soothes muscles, along with enhancing blood flow. If you’d like to add in some massage, here are some easy techniques.
.
•Head•
Apply essential oils to fingertips and gently massage entire scalp. For head tension, massage around the base of the neck and work up to the base of the scalp.
.
•Neck•
Use circular movements, working from the base of the neck, up both sides of the vertebrae, to the base of the scalp. Work to the sides of the neck and repeat the movements, working down again. (This is what I was doing with Shay after he hurt his neck.)
.
•Shoulders•
Using your thumbs and palms, make firm strokes from the shoulder to the neck and back again.
.
•Arms•
Massage up toward the armpit on the fatty or muscular areas only.
.
•Back•
Start from the lower lumbar region of the back, and with two hands stroke all the way up to the shoulders alongside the spine. Slide the hands over the shoulders and return down the sides of the back.
.
•Abdomen•
Use circular movements only in clockwise direction.
. •Legs•
Always massage legs upward on the fatty or muscular areas only and avoid varicose veins.
.
•Feet•
Massage from the toes to the heel with thumbs under the foot and fingers on top. (My boys love this one!)
.
Massage is most effective when done with the flow of the body. - The Essential Life. Even if you aren’t experienced, try a little light massage the next time you are needing some extra relief. 🙌🏻🙏🏻💧

A peek at the new playroom decor! We wanted this space to flow with the rest of the house, so we went for neutral, clean lines with a minimalist feel. I saw these baby animal canvas prints in just about every nursery design I pinned on Pinterest when I was pregnant, so I was pretty excited to bring them into H’s play space. We decided to mix art prints with family photos for a personal and cozy touch. I certainly wouldn’t consider myself remotely close to knowing the first thing about interior design, but this little wall is speaking my love language right now, and I’m totally digging the vibe.💙 #playroomdesign
I know that it is easier said than done, but taking time for YOU is important and OKAY! You have to fill your own cup before you can fill other's! I am guilty of not saying no, taking care of others first, and giving all I can until I am run down but I am also learning to take time for me and to STOP feeling GUILTY about it! Today I will rest and get back to 100% so I can face the rest of the  week strong. And I am doing my best to NOT feel guilty about it.

New Mamas I have the best tip for you if you are an anxious mess during the day like I was! dōTERRA has these Serenity Softgels available time help create a restful night sleep that I like to call a super strength cup-o-tea. Seriously relaxing with Chamomile, Lavender, Passionflower, Lemon Balm & amino acid L-Theanine. But here’s the deal mamas, this relaxing state can be created during the day to help “take the edge off” stress & anxiety. ⬅️ Basically the state I lived in as a new mom 24/7. It’s exhausting worrying about EVERYTHING & daunting realizing your baby relies on you to meet every need. And oh gosh the thoughts of am I doing this right & how can I make this better/easier & all the parenting books & blogs & comparison to others journey & it’s a recipe for a breakdown. Which I had many of if I’m honest. So let me tell you I took 1 of these capsules in the AM & another in the afternoon & 2 before bed (along with 2 Copaiba & a melatonin). Life is in a good routine now & has been for a long time, so I’m back to my regular usage of 1 each Serenity & Copaiba before bed & that’s it. Just wanted to share this tip that you can use these capsules during the day for managing stress & anxiousness.
.
If you haven’t tried these capsules yet & they sound like something you could use send me a message for a sample💜

🌻You can NEVER get this day again babe. How will you spend it? Living it with the ones you love most? Working on your own goals and visions?

Elf on the shelf 🧝‍♂️❤️ How cute are these holiday jammies! What are the best elf on the shelf ideas you’ve tried or seen? Our elf Tommy toilet paper wrapped our tree which was a huge hit with my kids. He used fishing line to zip line from our kitchen light fixture. He is known to bring holiday movies and popcorn with a little setup to watch with us in our living room. I would love any ideas that your kids have loved! http://liketk.it/2GO1U #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKholidaystyle #LTKkids #LTKfamily @liketoknow.it.family .

Be a light in the darkness.

We all fall over sometimes.

You can never wear too much glitter.

Bring joy to others.

Sparkle and twinkle as much as possible.

“CHEEESEEEE”, Henry says when we take photos now. Oh how time flies and in just four or less weeks we will be a family of four! I think Henry is ready to be a big brother, as he thinks he is the prince in our house (but who could say no to this face.) I am so beyond thankful for these two guys and I know life is going to change again soon, but we are SOO ready! 👪🚴🏻‍♂️#thankful #family #mygang #boymom #besthusband #familyof3 #familyof4 #bikeride #exercise #fall #southfloridablogger

Sunday was amazing! I still can’t believe it😅 You train so long for a single race, basically just a moment, and then it’s arrived... this culminating event!  You say “trust your training” but I would be totally lying if I said I didn’t have my doubts on race day. “Can I do this?” “What will happen if I don’t?” These were mixed with “I got this!” “I’ve put in the work.” “Let’s go get it!”
.
.
.

If you ever run in races , you know it’s such a mental game. You have to maintain your mental composure throughout. You’re physically there but you’ve got to be there between the ears too.
.
.
.

Sunday was a cold morning but like every race I’ve run, the atmosphere, the vibe, the immediate connection with strangers was so real!! You’re buzzing!
.
.
.

The pacers were amazing, the other runners were excellent and courteous, the spectators along the trail were so uplifting! There were long stretches without anyone too.
.
.
.

I felt great for probably 80-85% of the race start to finish... but  I definitely faced challenges. It was so cold my chews took forever to chew 😅 and gulp down... I didn’t finish them (lesson learned there), because it was so cold, it was difficult to drink quickly/adequately at the water stations, and the last 2 miles my calves began to spasm (mildly but enough that I wanted to be somewhat cautious). .
.
.

But I knew I had a PR! Not the 1:40 I set out for but a 3:05 min PR I am very proud of!
.
.
.

Finished 2/22 in my category and 17/246 women with 1:43.27! .
.
.

A great day!!
.

Special shoutout to one of my best friends and favorite fitness freak lol @ashleylaurel830 and her mama @dbkallman !! Shaved 5 min off their spring half marathon time and Debbie even placed 2nd in her category!
