Bad moments don’t make bad moms. . In case you didn’t know... parenting is HARD! . Between unsolicited advice from EVERYONE (that needs to stop... raise your kids how you want... as long as they’re healthy and loved you’re cool in my book ) and the constant pressure to make no mistakes... you’re bound to screw up! . I have made so many mistakes as a mama in only 6 short years I doubt you’d be the incredible little girl you are without your daddy (he’s the real mvp... most valuable parent... ) . I have yelled at you when you didn’t deserve it. I have told you to toughen up when you have no reason to be anything but kind-hearted and emotional. I have told you to grow up when I know I’m sincerely dreading the day you don’t need me anymore. I have made you cry and I regret every second. . Yet, here you are. Still calling me your best friend. Still wanting to be just like mom. How did I get lucky enough to have a child as thoughtful, kind, giving and huge-hearted as you? . For the moms out there that have lost their shit once or twice, locked themselves in the bathroom for 2 minutes of alone time, broken a simple promise or just feel like you’re failing... . I feel you. You’re doing a good job mama bear. . #iam1stphorm #findingmyway #parentingishard #honestbeauty #momlifestruggles

Were there things with your birth experience that you regretted that were IN your control? I did when I had Georgia. The biggest thing for me was the lack of education about labor and birth. I was absolutely petrified of giving birth that I thought not knowing what was going to happen was much better then knowing. But once I was in there I really wished I knew what I needed to do, what I could do and what to expect. Maybe if I had some knowledge of what was going to happen the experience might have been a bit nicer for me and for Georgia, but it also might not have, I won't ever know but I do still wish I took those classes & better prepared myself. Is there something you wish you could have done differently or was your experience exactly how you thought it would be? ❤
FEAR has two meaning : Forget Everything And Run or Face Everything And Rise . The choice is yours. . . . This is the quote that changes everything for me. I hope it will inspire you in whatever you are facing right now. I'm sure you know what to do next. . Know that I'm here for you.. Love, @niziexpress #courageovercomfort
I’ve had minimal sleep this week. But nothing was going to stop me from reading more of Elizabeth and Christians story. . . Christian walked away 5 years ago when Elizabeth got pregnant. He finished law school and began working for his father’s company. He didn’t go one day without thinking of Elizabeth and his child. Every day he regrets his choice. He happens to be in the same grocery store and when catches a glance of his daughter- he knows instantly that she’s his daughter and falls in love with her. He knows he will do anything to fix things and get his family back. So much angst in this story. So many tears. The hurt and intense love is so palpable you feel between Christian and Elizabeth. You can’t help but become emotionally sucked in . Definitely a book you stay up all night reading. I couldn’t go to bed without closure. I can not wait to read the next and final chapter in their story in the third book. . . 5 gorgeous 🌟. . @aljacksonauthor again, takes my breath away.
Need to get hubby on board with a low tox lifestyle? Get him involved. Make him up his very own collection and I am sure he will love them and be on the low tox train shortly after. Some Mens Kit faves Razor Sharp - Shaving relief 5 drops of lavender 5 drops of tea tree 3 drops of helichrysum Top with FCO Gentle Man - Colonge 3 drops of Cedarwood 5 drops of Litsea 3 drops of Siberian Fir 5 drops of Bergamot Top with FCO He will love these recipes and will want more 😀 So that's a win for him and a win for you. Does your man love Essential Oils?
I’m a fan of “preventative tantrum parenting” where you avoid temptation all together, it basically requires putting a blind fold on your kids every time you leave the house. I want that bag of Reese’s to buddy, trust me, it hurts me more to say no than it hurts you! . . . . . #boymom #boymomlife #boys #myboys #boymomma #lifewithboys #raisingboys #boymama #brothers #momtruths #momtruth #momprobs #realmomlife #momproblems #realmotherhood #thatmomlife #hotmessmom #momlifebelike #mommymode #momhumor #honestmommin #momfail #parentinghumor #funnymom #funnymoms #boymomlife 💙 #lifewithboys 💙 #boymomadventures #momhood #momlifeunfiltered
Lisa just a reminder that, Your weirdness, inadequacy, and shortcomings, are part of your uniqueness and the World 🌎 needs more of that. Honor yourself and appreciate everything that life offers good or bad, and always counts your blessings because there could be someone else that is fighting for the things you already have.
➡️Sleeping boys . Lost post ahead.... . 🍊 Mina found this 🧡 shape when I peeled a mandarin, which was a beacon of health for the boys. Flu B can have a quicker recovery than the A strains, but the residual coughing and other symptoms kept these boys out of school for 4 days. I can not imagine how my daily life would be if my kids were not generally healthy. Or if I didn’t have amazing health insurance. They do not have chronic medical conditions, learning disabilities, spectrum disorders, etc... and they continued to eat pretty well throughout. . 🧟♂️ 🧟♂️ I felt like a character from a zombie flick, trying to quarantine M from her brothers. But I still had to drop her off and pick her up from school. So do I leave the boys in the parked car (a potential offense in NJ ) while I did that? Or do I drag the boys along through hordes of other young kids and risk exposing them all, not to mention those other kids asking why my boys weren’t in school? Or do I pay for the sitter, going rate of $20-$30/hour? There was a morning when I contemplated the sitter as J’s nose bled >50 ml, even though I use diffusers in their rooms. The male adult in our household jacks the air temp to an oppressive 75F degrees when he comes home. I should feel blessed that we have the means not to be cold. I am grateful that I can order groceries and meals via phone apps nowadays so I don’t have to make decisions about bringing the boys into stores with masks on. Especially since NJ just sent out letters suggesting strongly that people returning from NE Asia self-quarantine until they can be proven free of the c-virus. I hear the yellow hysteria is worse in NYC...😔 . The last pic was one I took because it suddenly became very quiet after the boys were fighting as usual, and I saw the gym mat fashioned into a cubicle with signage 😂 . Everyone was happy to go back to school today. . . . . #finallybacktoschool #blessed #grateful #hotmessmom #kidsarevectors
Every step I take is a step further from who I was and a step closer to who I am becoming. . I distinctly remember taking that before pic a couple years ago. I remember trying SO HARD to flex to get SOMETHING to show up. Then the other day I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and I was like “Oh, hey abs. Where did you guys come from?!” . It hasn’t always been easy or a straight line. The results were not instant, and they most definitely did not happen overnight. I for sure felt like quitting a time or two. . But that’s the thing. . You don’t have to be extreme to get results; you just have to be consistent. . You don’t have to deprive yourself and give up every food you love and workout for hours every day; you just have to find a happy medium and move your body. . I workout about 30 minutes a day – from home. I still eat chocolate and pizza and enjoy the occasional alcoholic beverage – just not every day. I treat myself when it’s worth it. . I feel like in today’s world, not only have our attention spans diminished but so have our patience and expectations for quick, get skinny fast, fixes. You cannot expect to undo YEARS of bad habits in mere weeks or, heck, even months. . Overworking or starving your body won’t work. Developing consistent exercise and nutrition practices will. . I promise you, you CAN, and you WILL lose the weight, but you have to be REALISTIC in your expectations and time commitment. . You just have to DECIDE and COMMIT and be CONSISTENT as all get out! If you show up consistently and get it done; the results WILL happen. . And if you need a little extra support on your journey? I AM HERE. I would love to help you. ✨❤️ #juliaslosingit #changeyourmindset #changeyourlife #transformationtuesday #letsgethealthytogether

Women just like you + me 1 week left in my Barre program and the results coming out of my virtual gym and wellness studio are blowing my freaking mind 🤯 ⬇️ 3 lbs lost! ⬇️ 4 lbs gone forever! ⬇️ 5 lbs byeeeee! I was really skeptical 7 weeks ago that we could get an amazing workout with 2 pound weights and a barre… but here we are! These results are from everyday women. Women with partners and kids and busy schedules. Women who had never completed a program but are now 7 weeks in with amazing results! Women who were skeptical that they could actually get results at home. Women who were struggling and feeling uninspired… to being motivated to show up for themselves and inspiring me to do the same! Wanna join us as we are moving into our new program that's launching soon?

Don’t let this pic fool ya. I fully 💯admit I slept in. Didn’t get the sweat sesh on. Furnace acted up. Was late for work. Felt really discombobulated today. Thankfully, I have learned that 💩 happens and one off balance day = being a freaking human. So if ya are ever feeling off like I am here are a few tips to help ya ensure tomorrow will be better. ✨Set two alarm clocks to ensure you wake up when you want to. ✨Make lunches tonight so you ain’t rushing in the am. ✨Write a hyped up to do list for tomorrow. Write it as though it’s a letter to the Universe on how you want your tasks to turn out and how they will make you feel. ☺️💯 ✨Set out your workout and work clothes for tomorrow. ((🤔I need new clothes ... do I shop online or hit the mall? ... that’s another post ) ). ✨Recognize that the day was crap. Forgive the negative feeling and release it ... knowing you are envisioning something better for tomorrow. 😉✨✨✨✨ . . . . #tiptuesday #hotmessmom #sleptin #choosehappiness #gabriellebernstein #twoalarms #momlife #jlobooty #iusedtobecool #journaling #wrinkles

2 days in a row we had warmer winter🙄 weather. Clearly my daughter has the same face about winter like her mama “we over it” 😒 🙋🏻♀️ Who else has cabin fever & is ready for Spring?! 🌷🐣🌞🐸

Does this outfit scream #momlife or what???? . . . Don’t mind the #rbf and mom bun 🤣 but I recently gave up dairy because as I’m getting older it’s messing with my stomach more and more. After having some ice cream at Disneyland and feeling sick the rest of the day I decided to give it up because it’s not worth it to me... I noticed today that I’m debloating a lot after giving dairy up. If feeling good is my end goal then I’m more than happy to eliminate food that makes me feel like crap! . . . . I’m hoping by tomorrow I will feel better enough to get back to the barre because I’m missing it! I have 2 weeks left of @barreblendworkout then I’m thinking of trying @coredeforce until @10roundsprogram comes out! I’m so excited about that program because *FUN FACT* as a little girl I always wanted to be a boxer lol . . .

You are not too old. It’s not too late. You are never too far gone. You can decide at any time to make changes. They can be big changes. They can be small changes. I’m personally a big fan of small 1% changes done consistently. You have so much more choice than you think you do! I promise. Life coaches are really good at helping people see all of their options. Good at helping people discover choices they didn’t know they had. If you want to expand your options I invite you to schedule a 20-minute consult call with me. The link to schedule is in my bio #empoweringwomen #momempowerment #bethechangeyouwanttosee #mommymode #mommyclub #momcommunity #lifechanges #momconfessions #tiredmom #motherhoodintheraw #hotmessmom #findingbalance #lifecoaching #momadvice #createthelifeyouwant #momprobs #womenover40 #goalgetter #motherhoodinspired #healthyhabits #mamapreneur #momswhowork #workingmom #lifestyleblogger #womenadvice #livingnaturally #lifeunfiltered #realstagram
Channeled my inner Oompa Loompa last Saturday for a Momma’s night out celebrating a birthday of a friend. I’ll admit, the orange 𝘐𝘚 very bright, but 𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐥𝐨𝐨𝐤! I curled my hair AND did my makeup!! Sort of. Can anyone double check if pigs are flying?
Do you ever feel like you don’t belong? Like you see things on social and it’s like... wow, why didn’t I get invited? I personally have felt like that a lot in my life. Part of it is totally my issue because people actually terrify me, and I think the other part is that people look at me and see that I own this boutique with all these followers and I have all kinds of people commenting and interacting with me all the time, but that’s not how my real life is. My real life... it’s kind of isolating. It’s hard being a business owner, a mom, a wife and a daughter much less try to add friends to that, but sometimes it just feels... lonely. So like, if you’re out there thinking the same thing... that you need some girlfriends in your life, I’m totally here 🙋🏼♀️ but I need you to be ok with me not texting back for 12 hours, not being able to do anything ever except for weekdays between 9:30am and 11:30am and 2:30-4, or whenever else my kids decide I can have a little bit of a life. Oh and also being into talking about exercising but sending me selfies of you making poor food choices and having full conversations with only Gifs. If this is you... apply in my DMs 🥳
Me most nights as soon as my daughter goes to sleep. I swear I try to get things done when she’s sleeps but I usually shower, and fall right to sleep. Raising kids is exhausting, and sleep is sometimes a luxury. So, I’m going to be over here living luxuriously if ya need me! 😴 Tag a momma that can relate! What do you try to do when the baby falls asleep at night, but doesn’t get done because you pass out? It’s okay to let whatever you need to do wait, recharge when you can mommas! ❤️❤️ Post via: @therealramblinma Follow @kempnitreal for more! ❤️
Listen, I posted this in my stories at first.. but then I realize this needed to be on the feed in case another #hotmessmom was thinking this may be smart.... . . . . I got no hashtags. Because I am an idiot.
This month has been a whirlwind of uncontrollable circumstances. . I spent 2/3 of it on the couch, nursing Piper from the flu then myself, then a few days out healing from my tooth extraction. . I think I’d normally feel guilty for not getting a lot of work done, eating cereal for dinner, and not taking the kids out, but I don’t! I feel great! My kids are healthy, and it’s really not fair to beat myself up for something out of my control. . As mothers and woman who run businesses and households we get ourselves down for not getting ahead. . DON’T. If you worry you’re not doing enough, you’re probably doing more than enough. When you lay your head down tonight remember, you are enough and you’re doing the best you can in this moment. Tag someone who needs this today. 💙✨😴
I’m a firm believer in moderation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Except for reality tv. That ish is meant to be BINGED. with wine. 📺🍷 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ we are going HARD with love is blind. Who else 🤣🤣🤣 I have so many thoughts!!
Heading home from the hospital with our first baby. What a nice little family... A nice little naive family 🤦🏼♀️ Clueless to the freight train that was about to plow into Mommy shortly after arriving home from the hospital. ⠀⠀ Still on a high from l&d (little did I know feeling like you’re high on speed post delivery is not normal and is a symptom of hypomania ) — I thought I was going to slay the mom game. I had enough energy to run a marathon (I can barely run a mile ) and felt like I could stay up nights on end to feed her — until I couldn’t — I crashed, hard, and I spent the next month, with a lot of support, climbing out of the hole that is PPD. ⠀⠀ Erin at @totumwomen has built an amazing community that strives to support ALL moms and she’s invited me to takeover her story tomorrow for a little chat and q&a ❤️ Come on over ➡️ @totumwomen
Exhausted but still showed up today! I am running on 3 hours of sleep! Note to self don't drink a shit ton of green tea late in the day! . . I could let that be my excuse but I knew I needed to move and so glad I did. Joseph wasn't feeling to well so he spent the day with me and I needed my stress relieving workout! . . Also if it was for the accountability and support of these women I would of definitely slept in! . . If you need that support and encouragement dm or drop an emoji below!

A FACE CAN SAY A LOT . . The picture on the left is from 2014. This was a women without kids who commutes 1.5+ hours each way to work and ate most of the time on the go. She spent no time being active or spending any “real” time on herself. . . The picture on the right is from 2020. This is a mom of two girl toddlers who has a great (but stressful ) job with lots of potential for growth. She has discovered the value of spending time on herself emotionally and physically everyday. . . I may be six years older in the picture on the right but I am much healthier (even though life has gotten much more chaotic ). You are worthy of spending time on yourself as a women and/or mom.

I like to call this, “The List They Hide From Expecting Moms.” Or “Why We Need REAL Mom Friends.” Also, I’m almost seven years in and I still feel tons of these things. Also, no wonder anxiety and depression are the number one complications of pregnancy. Did I forget any? What would you name this list?
These itty bitty muffins are a hit for me + 2 of my 3 babes like them.. we’ll call it success! 🤣 They contain 40 PERCENT of your daily veggies and come in a cute little 3-pack (swipee ) Now to get the hubs and third little rug rat on the healthier band wagon 🙌🏼 @farmandoven thanks for letting me give them a try!!

You 👏🏼 Are 👏🏼 Doing 👏🏼 A 👏🏼Good 👏🏼 Job! Someone said that to me the other day and I didn’t realize how just how much I needed to hear those words 😭 Like. I actually cried and said thank you a gazillion times. In all the exhaustion, the chaos, and the craziness of motherhood, we can lose ourselves. We doubt our own abilities. We question. We cry. We have moments where we feel we are winning. And then that doubt creeps back in. It’s. All. Normal. You, yes YOU are enough. You are AMAZING! Motherhood is hard. It’s a full time job. With no breaks. No pay. And the most demanding (yet cutest ) bosses ever. Give yourself a break. Be kind. You are doing a great job 👏🏼. Tag a mama who deserves to hear this today.
The other day Lorelei came up to me and said "Mom, my brain is always whispering to me "Is it time for a snack?" " And it was in that exact moment that I have felt the most connected with my child.

Be unapologetically YOU. ⠀⠀ Well in order to do that you first have to figure out who the hell you are 😂 the past two years have been a rollercoaster of ups, downs, and everything in between. At points I looked in the mirror and didn’t recognize the person looking back. I was so self conscious and anxious beyond belief. I lacked self control, discipline, & patience. (Still working on that patience one ). I also made excuses for my life & never took responsibility for where i was. It took a lot of INTENTIONAL work but I’m to the point now where I’m proud of who I am, what I’ve done, and where I’m going. ⠀⠀ I’m a SoCal girl with a country heart that loves hunting, fishing, hiking, & shooting guns. I love making wood crafts, repairing windows, and working with my hands. I love being a momma & I’m not afraid to admit that I’m just winging it- figuring it out as I go. I have an obsession with yoga pants, journals, tattoos, & iced coffee. ⠀⠀ I love sharing my journey on Instagram because its allowed me to connect with some pretty bad ass women that i consider amazing friends. I’m finally to the point in my journey where I truly believe I am capable of achieving my goals. It’s taken awhile to get here but hey, better late than never. So that’s me! Now tell me about you!🥰
#tiredasamother But still having a productive start to my week! Happy Monday! ☺️

And have you ever stepped on that 💩?! 😰😰🤣⠀ ⠀ Anyways, I had to share this as it popped up in my memories⠀ ⠀ This was a note and “gift” I came home to last year from A...⠀ ⠀ The note got me thinking about myself and all my fellow mom friends out there who spend a lot of the time in the day second guessing ourselves, constantly wondering if we’re being the best moms we can be, whether or not we’re making the right decisions, maybe wanting to pull our hair out a little bit 🤷🏻♀️🤣⠀ ⠀ Here’s what I took away from this : ⠀ Don’t worry so much ... you’re doing great ... and to them, you’re a freaking hero no matter what 💕
I wanted to buy these @salty_honey joggers but I didn’t get them when they had XXL the size I would buy since starting to buy SH. I had serious FOMO and didn’t want these to sell out and leave me shit out of luck... so I decided just to buy them in XL with the intention of keeping them in my closet as goal pants. . . . . Today they came in and when I pulled them out I decided to try them on so I can have a “before” picture of me in them but to my shock and excitement not only do they fit but they aren’t snug or tight!! I literally wanted to cry because I’m seeing my hard work pay off, my kids are seeing it, my husbands seeing it they are excited to live healthier because they see momma living her best life! . . . When you focus on yourself, how you feel, how your clothes fit versus what the scale says these little #nsv will be the best moments ever! You are not defined by a number, remember that! 💕 #momsofinstagram #momswholift #fitmoms #SAHM #postpartum #bossmom #homeworkouts #saltyhoney #weightlossjourney #girlmom #boymom #momswhoworkout #mombod #realwomenwearsaltyhoney #postpartumbody #fitmomsofig #mombod #barreblend #introvertmom #hotmessmom #momof4 #fitmomsofig #momsofig #weightloss #fitness #bossbabe #barre #motherhood #selfconfidence #momboss
