She was an adventurer at heart; but oh how she loved drinking this tea from this mug in this chair. Oh how she loved to be home.🌻 // ok now that I have all of you who continued reading past my regular love of quotes dump (I really do love that one!) let me say what I really came here to say 😏. We are about to go on our first little camping trip of the year, and I will be posting pretty camping photos, I’m sure. However, I feel like before that, it’s fair for you to know that today, prep day, was hellish. My children started bickering at 6am. WHAT. That’s a big nope for me, thanks. And I don’t know if it’s the moon, or the planets are aligned funky or what (let’s go with that. So when things move I have hope, ok? 😂) but they just wouldn’t stop. All day. I don’t even know if I heard their real voices today? Mamas, you know what I mean, when they use that high pitched whining mumble siren. And there was a lot of shouting. All around. Me over the whine sirens, them at me for making them tidy their room, husband at them because he was elbow deep in dishes, then me to husband from laundry room, you get it, I know you get it. (Haha, Cody and I have this joke when we’re in the thick of it where I say “BOB! It’s time to engage! I need you to intervene!!”. Incredibles anyone? The dinner scene 😂) anyways, it was kind of a shit show. So just in case you ever see my photos and think that it’s somehow painless and easy to go on adventures and camp and whatnot, we definitely have days like today. Not all the time, but we do, and it’s exhausting. Also, there will be a new video tonight eventually (so check in tomorrow morning 😴) and go watch it if you want to. I really appreciate those who do. YouTube is my “thing”. I really love it. It’s challenging and rewarding and I work really hard and stay up too late making them. But l feel like I can give a bit more of myself over there. So I appreciate those who join me over there. Like a lot. You have no idea. Ok, ramble over. Keep today in mind if I post any dreamy camping pics 😂 and send me strong coffee if they wake up rough tomorrow too. 🤘🏼 love you guys, have a good week, don’t beat yourselves up. Parenting is hard. 🤷♀️
I think to myself trying to think of something motivational, or even inspirational, to say....
Truth....or maybe even just a rant...
I have never been so tired, sore, & overwhelmed in my life. I mean I have always liked to keep busy but this is some next level s***
I never anticipated things would be this tough yet here I am.
Attempting to balance 3 kids, a small business, training & so much more.
I made it through my 1st week at the gym & it literally kicked my ass! 🙈
As much as I love training I am finding it hard to get back into the habit of things. However, I refuse to give up. I don't care how tired or sore or overwhelmed I may be, I made a promise to myself to always strive to be the best version of myself for my family & that is exactly what I have set out to do.
Maybe it is just the lack of sleep & the change in hormones talking but I felt the need to share because even tho it may look like I have it all together I feel like I am falling apart.
My insecurities getting the best of me.
Tomorrow is a new day & luckily a short week ahead.
Is it the weekend yet?! 🤪

Looking forward to ➭ ANY DAY BUT TODAY.
Nothing went right today. ✊🏻 (that’s a zero.)
Today stunk so ridiculously much today. 💩
Sometimes that happens, and you’re allowed to feel the anger, frustration, defeat... but feel it & LET👏🏻IT👏🏻GO !!!
My healthiest stress reliever: exercise.
Today is Day 1 of Phase 2 of the program I’m doing...
That means I’m already done with 4 weeks!!!! 😱
I’m so excited to take measurements, pics, & weigh in. (Hoping for growth in my arms, legs, & booty!!!)
In Phase 2, Monday’s are Booty Day... so yeah, you could say I’m about to kick this mood in the 🍑.
