Trying out a new turkey meatball recipe today to kickstart my clean eating week with my group of ladies!! I’ll keep ya posted!!
I may or may not have had a beer with my lunch and absinthe hot chocolate aka John Denver’s breath for dessert after my physic reading. #itsmydayoff #salemmass #nokids #metime #omgyum #imacrossthestreet #holdmybeer #tastytuesday #daydrinking #salemma #hotchocolate #absinthe
With the kids being sick this week I’ve kinda lost track of what I’ve been eating. Not so much that I’m eating junk, just that I’m not eating that much at all. I’ll go all day and then realize “oh shit, I haven’t eaten a damn thing all day”!! So again, here I am not taking care of myself. It really can get away from ya when so much is going on, right moms? So today I forced myself to 🛑 STOP, dig through the fridge and grilled a bunch of stuff that I can grab easily, and made a giant salad. Now I have no excuses not take a few minutes and fuel my body!! • • • • • • • #fuelingup #powergreens #waterfirst #veggiesmost #momfuel #lunchtime
Sunday funday late lunch!!
When I make promises to other people I keep them. No matter what. But when I make a promise to myself, it tends to be put on the back burner if something comes up. Then guess what happens? I break the promise without even giving it a second thought. The kids need a ride. my gram has a doctors appointment. The bathroom needs to be cleaned. When that happens who am I letting down? ME!! Why is it ok to let myself down but make it a priority to never let anyone else down? Not today my friends!! I made a promise that I’m sticking to these workouts and I did, even today in this heat. Why? Because I’m sick of being disappointed in myself when I go above and beyond for everyone else. No disappointment here today. I made a date with myself in my planner and I promised myself I’d do it. Just like if I had promised to take my kids to dinner or do a favor for a friend. You can’t pour from an empty cup. Remember that!! Some days it’s a struggle but keeping that saying in my head helps me realize that I’m a priority too!! Hopefully This can inspire other moms like me to make themselves a priority today too in one way or another. Take care of YOU First Ladies!! ❤️ Happy Saturday!!!
Another gorgeous summer day with these kiddos. They’re playing in the pool and I’m messaging some awesome ladies about this new meal plan and exercise program I’m doing. Killing two birds with one stone. Family time, and working on me while helping some ladies get started on working on themselves too!! ❤️ So glad to be getting back into my home business. Making memories and hitting some goals! Woot woot!!
Yeah I’m pretty sure I’m digging this meal plan I got going on over here. Taking this bad boy out to the deck to enjoy my brunch in the sun. #omgyum #brunch #tasty #tastytuesday #healthybrunch #brunching #brunchingitup #foodcomafordays #foodcoma #shreddingfat #healthymealshare #deckbrunch #decklife #summerlovin #getinmybelly #foodlover #foodiegram #foodislove #mealplanapproved #mealplan
Omg lunch doesn’t get any better than ceviche!!! Thanks @chefcpell ... it’s like heaven in my mouth. Am I supposed to save you some?
How does this incredible creature belong to me? ❤️
Always learning something new.
Guys!!! tell me again how home workouts and virtual accountability groups don’t work. I got time.. I’ll wait!! If you put in the work, the results WILL come. Especially when you have a group of people cheering you on and maybe even giving you a little friendly competition. Like this morning, my girl Allison and I kicked ass together on a video chat busting out some cardio. Now we’re done our workout for the day, we had some girl time and set a positive tone for the rest of the day! I’m just curious, if you have been watching my journey and have thought about joining us, why haven’t you yet? Summer is coming. Don’t let it sneak up on you again this year and be stuck 🤔 thinking “damn I should’ve just joined Lisa’s group!” Pm me and get on that shit! 👏👍🏼
Try and fail but don’t fail to try!! 5 am came way too quick this morning I can tell you that. Emmy was hell on wheels last night and refused to go to bed and this momma was exhausted. She’s definitely my hardest toddler yet! (I say yet like they’ll be another one lol) 🤦🏼♀️ Totally could’ve put off my workout this morning but I knew my fit BFF would be waiting on me, and yup, she was right on time! We crushed another 30 minute workout together virtually. Swore at the moves, laughed a little at our swearing and ended feeling accomplished. Not too shabby for 5:30 am from my bedroom!! 4 days in and I’m stoked for cardio tomorrow. (Who am I? I hate cardio)
Tried something new this morning with one of my fit BFF’s from my online accountability group. We totally crushed an upper body workout together using a video conference app. How cool is that? Didn’t have to leave the house In this rainy weather, and had the motivation and support of a group exercise class! Now our workout is done and we set a positive start to the rest of our day. I think I could get used to this!! If you need this type of accountability, motivation and support reach out to me.... we could always use more workout buddies. The more the merrier!!
When you just need a good girl date night with your little love! I haven’t laughed this hard in a month. Thanking god for Anastasia tonight. Best mommy/daughter date with lots of laughs and chatting about great memories. She’s a really great kid!! ❤️😍
Welp!! Yesterday I was a disaster, so I was determined to get my ass up and not cry all day today! Mission accomplished. Workout ✅ Grocery shopping ✅ Mentor coach calls ✅ Did In-home therapy with my son ✅ Started meal prepping for the week✅ Connected with my Fit BFF’s in our private accountability fitness group ✅ Today definitely was far from perfect but it was better than yesterday. Healing is a slow process and an uphill battle but it can be done. Choosing to work on myself and my business is a step in the right direction. Slow and steady!!
I may be a little too obsessed with my dinner tonight. It’s the first time I ever made it and on a whim I tried for some of my meal prep. Chili-lime Black bean soup was a total winner in my book! I’m definitely not sharing with the kids. 🤷♀️ they’ll have to fight me for it. 😂
Do you have a song that every time you hear it just puts you in a great mood and you can’t stop singing it? Just can’t get this out of my head today. (Do I wanna know?) If this feeling flows both ways (Sad to see you go) Was sorta hoping that you'd stay (Baby we both know) That the nights were mainly made for saying things that you can't say tomorrow day
