Ive heard it heck I've said it 8 glasses of water is a lot, but when I thought about how much juice and drinks I have throughout the day i realized its possible I'm just in a mindset of not wanting to do it. So every time I say I can't have anymore water I say well I had 6 kids so if I did that a cup of water is like a deep breath 😂😂😂. So now I'm drinking more water 😂, but a drink sounds really nice right now lol thinking too far ahead for Friday #justdoit
Transform 20 day 1 Burn and yes my body burns 🥵 lol but I'm a good way.
After taking a break from working out and coming back felt so good. But i did get hit with a flood of emotions that I didn't expect.
As a mom I'm expected to be happy and healthy and take care of everyone and move and juggle a thousand things and what's good for me or what i should do for me tends to get tossed on the back burner.
So deciding to comeback and take care of me was one of the greatest things I could do not only for me but for my family. And yes I'll admit I cried after the workout, a shed a few tears during. But im ok. And I'll keep going and be better and get stronger. Because Im committed to taking care of me. And that's not a bad thing. #nomoremomguilt
And just like that the weekend is over!
This morning I awaken to find myself in a familiar headspace.
One of worry, anxiety, uncertainty and fear. For as much as I travel, I still dread being away from home.
The world is volatile. And being 22 hours away by airplane brings lots of uncertainty.
On the other hand...I have a job to do. I've been writing a beautiful story the last 20 months and it's time to pen the ending.
Will it be a plot twist? Or the expected finale? Stay tuned!
In the meantime...let me get ready to handle my business!😉 Happy Monday!😘
Yesterday I attended my first Beachbody event—and it was a great day. I left the event equal parts inspired and exhausted, and I spent the night thinking about how I almost missed this opportunity. I had some pretty big WHY NOTS in regards to becoming a Beachbody coach. I was too busy – I have four kids and a full-time teaching job. I was not a fitness or nutrition expert and didn’t think anybody would want to listen to me. I was terrified about sharing on social media. Terrified.
About a year ago I took the leap anyways. And what I found were all my WHYS. They are so much bigger. I get extra accountability for my own wellness. Win. I get to make money in addition to my teaching salary—I mean those four kids’ college educations are right around the corner. Eeeeek! I get to model a healthy life for my family. I get to empower others to make changes in their lives that will significantly improve the way THEY live. And most importantly, I get to be a woman with enough confidence to no longer care about any of those why nots. And to think I almost missed this. #strongmindstrongbody#rememberyourwhy#leap#fitafterforty#fortyoneandfabulous

Being a Goddess is being unrestricted by the opinions of others, owning your sexual, mental, physical, and spiritual power, protecting your emotions and holding yourself accountable, and refusing to live less than your best life even if that means having a couple of Dicks and Harrys until your compliment is ready. It is time ladies to no longer makes excuses for being single or explaining shit about our bedroom credentials. You got it...no if, ands, or buts about it...so live it...it'll flaunt on it's own effortlessly. Love you. Goodnight. 😘😘😘 #fortyoneandfabulous#modelat50#goddess#locgoddess#daughterofoshun🌻🐝🍯💛😊🌻 #xblurayne

Love filters and love how I feel. When you feel good about yourself, what you do and how you live there's nothing anyone can say or any negativity that can bring you down. Don't get me wrong I do have my bad days, hey I'm human right. But I know it's life and things happen. But I also know my worth and I e come along way from@where I was in the past to get to where I'm at and where I want to be. And I'm happy with my choices and im proud of my decisions in life. And I am who I am and won't change for anyone in the world. So I am and always will be me and that always brings a smile to my face, no Mather how silly and cute the filter being used 😉🤪 #alwayssmile😊
I came across the photo on the left of me when I was 21, incredibly that is exactly 20 years ago today. I’m 41 now (picture on the right )and that’s not something I share very often, as if it should be hidden away, as if I should keep secret the fact that I’m getting ‘older’. I’m proud of being 41 and having the privilege to be alive this long . I’m even proud of the changes in my body , no I don’t look like the skinny twenty something kid I was but my strong body has carried me throughout all the changes in my life and given birth to a beautiful daughter at the age of 39 . When I see this photo of myself, just starting university in Washington state, so young, happy , vibrant and full of life it’s emotional for me . I had no idea what life had in store for me , that 20 years later I would have a full life in another country , an Australian husband and child . I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the incredible age of being 41, it should be just as celebrated as 21! I love seeing all my wise friends and family as we grow together in life . And for anyone that believes they are too old and over the hill - you never are ! I honour each stage of my life and I’m grateful for it 🙏💕 #fortyandfabulous#fortyoneandfabulous#empoweredwomen#love#loveyourself#sisterhood#bodypositive#forties
Most people know I'm not really big on holidays! However birthdays & mother's day are the only 2 that I look forward too & celebrate!The day I was born, & the day set aside for mother's... Becoming a mother is when I truly understood what unconditional love meant! When your babies love you back regardless of how many times you mess up.... That’s love!
My favorite quote-
"From the age of 7 thru 32 I really didn't know myself! Hell for the last 8 years loving me is all new to me too!" - KandidKia (it’s been 9 years now 😂 & still counting)
Are you mindful of how you talk to yourself? I’ve spent a lot of time today soaking up this face 😍
However as I was just sitting here I caught myself thinking, “gosh you’ve wasted the day.” Yet this morning, being one of two days each week that I don’t have my other two kiddos, the babe and I went to a doctor’s appointment, returned library books, went to the bank, grabbed groceries, stopped to look at a daycare, and then came home and did a load of laundry, got dinner started, and did a little reading for some boards I have coming up.
How is that considered “wasting the day?” I can tell you I would not be calling that a wasted day if a friend or patient told me that is what their day entailed.
I’m glad I caught myself in my tracks. I’m working hard these days on being more present, with my kids and with myself. The more you practice, the more present you can get.
I’ll tell you what I tell myself: “Be here. Now.” Not thinking about yesterday or what I’ll do tomorrow. This new baby is giving me a good lesson in presence. I will never get this maternity leave back with my three littles, so wherever I am, I want to be all there.
So to my busy, type A soul I say, “You’ve done enough. You are enough.” And to you I say, you are exactly where you need to be. And wherever you are. Be all there. ❤️ #bottomsup#bottomsbits#transformyourmind#tuesdaytransformation#newbornlife#beallthere
Strong support and love has showed me this was the one of the best career paths for me. Working at home isn't for everyone but it's amazingly wonderful for me. And i wouldn't change it for anything in the world

Good morning, happy Saturday.
I switched it up this morning with a little running and a lot of stairs.
I don’t know exactly how many time I went up and down but that’s not important. The important part is I did it! 😊💥 💣💥💣💥💣💥💣💥💣💥😊
Question: do people who live in two-story houses use their stairs to exercise?
