I remember how uncomfortable I felt in that first picture. It was hot out, I was in an ill-fitting bathing suit, hiding behind my daughter. She would have been about 8 or 9 months here. Nothing fit right and I felt awful in my own skin. Everything hurt, I was tired all the time, even on days when I napped along with Amy. I just felt blah. You know what I mean? What I wouldn't give to reach through that picture and shake that version of me. Tell me to stop putting it off, stop accepting that you'll just feel like this forever. I can't do that, but what I can do is hope that somebody else can take my story and let it help them with their own. Stop accepting that you just have to feel crappy all the time. Realize that you can be more than just a spectator in your own life. If you're uncomfortable where you are, change things. ❤ #facetofacefriday

meframsey. Another year around the ☀️
▪️
It has not been the easiest year to say

Another year around the ☀️ ▪️ It has not been the easiest year to say the least... full of joy and sadness, confidence and doubt. But I am learning from each moment and look forward to the possibilities of the year ahead. ▪️ The love and support from those around me keeps me motivated. The smiles, hugs and kisses from my beautiful munchkins brighten my heart and soul every day! 💜💙 ▪️ So on this day, I BELIEVE ... * That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love. * That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be. * That you should always leave loved ones with Loving words. It may be the last time you see them. * That you can keep going long after you think you can't. * That we are responsible for what We do, no matter how we feel. * That either you control your attitude or it controls you. * That my best friend and I, can do anything, or nothing and have the best time. * That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up. * That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself. * That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, But we are responsible for who we become. * That your life can be changed in a matter of Hours by people who don't even know you. 🔶 I believe that I will continue Rise & THRIVE as I DREAM BIG! 😁💪🏼💥

💦💦 Allllll the water today. 💦💦It’s supposed to be almost 100 and the humidity is through the roof! It’s a good day to focus back on my water intake. Trying to get at least 3 of these water bottles in. The goal is at least half of my body weight in ounces. Shooting for 3 surpasses that amount and is easy to track! #waterfirst

ra06_fitness. Those of you who have children especially younger ones know that they

Those of you who have children especially younger ones know that they are ALWAYS watching what you do. Whether you are cleaning up their mess, cooking their dinner or simply going to the bathroom. They are ALWAYS THERE 👀👀👀 So what we do and say around them is crucial to the adults they will eventually become. If you on a regular basis refuse to eat your own vegetables then wonder why your child refuses them too, you need to look at what they are learning by watching you. Now I'm not just standing here on my soap box saying do this and do that while I stand back and watch. I do this too. Every morning my son knows that I put on my workout gear and I do my workout. Now sometimes he joins me and sometimes he doesn't but it's the EXAMPLE I am showing him that counts. He sees mummy being active every day and so far it is working he asks every day to go out and play at our local park. Granted he's nearly 4 and its common at that age but I'm hoping by me setting this example he will continue is eagerness to be outside as he grows older. You dont have to be as active as me to set those examples but even small ones like seeing you eat healthier or go for regular walks outside. Just remember little eyes are always watching what you do. #children #parents #youngchildren #settingexamples #littleeyesarewatching #beactive #behealthy

A lot of people may judge and criticize us of why we don’t do this or that but no one knows how we live.. no one knows our struggle and how much of a sacrifice it was to make it to Disney and make this trip! He dreamed about this every day and when the day came on his birthday we had to cancel it because he got sick . We rescheduled but we were still on the line with Disney once in LA thinking if it was the best decision to enter the park because of his health or not..but I’m so glad we did! These moments are unforgettable and I loved seeing the smile on your face I know it was a challenge for you but you are such a strong warrior and you got through it I know you wished you could do more but just being there and watching you smile is all I needed to make my day!! Thank you for being strong I see your efforts every day even when others don’t see it. Stay strong babe !

What this picture represents to me is more than a snapshot! The oldest person in my life and the youngest littles in my life. My favorite extremes that have taught me so much about life. My grandma who has showed me strength while she cared for my sick grandpa, shows me love to everyone she sees (the lady has never met a stranger), shows independence and determination as she has done life the last 8 years without the love of her life of 53 years living, she has showed me every skincare regiment under the sun but with a face like hers at almost 82 years young I’ll do anything to look like her, she has taught me to look presentable always and you don’t have to show everything to be beautiful, she has taught me that beautiful shines through from the inside out, she continues to work hard everyday to do life and has no intention of slowing down, but most importantly she has taught me about faith, hope, and the Lord. When I talk about leaving a legacy that is my grandma...she is doing that everyday! If I can leave half the legacy she is I will be grateful! . . So thankful we have been able to spend the time we are with so many family and friends! Love doing life with my two littles who are soaking in every moment! Happy Thursday loves! How are you leaving your legacy today? . . . . . . #leavealegacy #lessonlearnedinlife #settingexamples #learntoloveyourself #loveothers #raisinglittles #enjoylife #grandmawisdom #sweetlittlegirls #momlove #leavingalegacy #beconfidentinyourself #littlegirlstyle #littles #positivebodyimage #lifegoals #littlesupermodels #lovemenow #confidenceisbeauty #busymomlifestyle #momlife #momblogging #mommybloggers #mommablogger #mominfluencers #bloggermoms #bloggingmommy #nashvillebloggers #nashvilleinfluencers #murfreesboroblogger

How to BFF your scale weight (PT. 1) . Does your scale weight frustrate you? Feel like you’re working your ass off only to step on that stupid box and see it go UP? Barely move? . Let me help you shift your mindset & BFF your scale weight (or toss that sucker all together)👇🏻 . Picture yourself walking into a large room. It’s filled with people you know and love, some old faces and some new . You have reached your health and fitness goals. You look phenomenal, you feel amazing, your outfit is PERFECT, your transformation is impossible to ignore! . The only thing is that your goal weight was 135 lbs, and you happen to weigh 145 lbs- but you look and feel like YOU DID IT! . IF THIS WERE YOU... would you care that your scale weight was higher than “you wanted?” . Would that number take away all of your success and hard work? You did after all, accomplish your goals and MORE . 99% of the time when I ask this question, the answer is HELL NO! . The most common motivators I hear regarding the WHY behind a persons goals are👇🏻 . I want my self confidence back I want to go on vacation and not worry about how my clothes look I want to play with my kids without getting out of breath I am tired of feeling trapped in my body I want to FEEL good again in my skin . The scale doesn’t dictate if you have accomplished the above. It doesn’t show you the depths of your transformation or the freedom that you experience- it tells you a number- THAT IS IT . We decide the weight of that number. We are responsible for understanding what can impact it and all the things if DOESN’T tell you! Such as... If you’re strength or endurance improved If your body comp has changed If you lost 10 inches Or dropped 2 pant sizes last month If you fit into your favorite jeans again . It just gives you ONE, tiny, easily skewed number . The scale is only ONE way to measure progress, but it’s not necessarily the best way! (PT. 2 will walk you through BETTER ways to measure progress in full detail!) . YOU ARE A PERSON- not a number. . Comment below if you’ve felt frustrated by the scale at one point👇🏻

SETTING EXAMPLES I made a decision to work on the way I thought about myself I spoke about myself I spoke about diet culture This was because i knew if I continued the way I was I would never be happy. Most importantly how it would impact the way my daughter thought she should measure her value and possibly be ashamed of her body...that’s not ok. It’s important we consider the way our words and thinking not only impacts how we feel about ourself, but how it impacts the thinking of others around us and reinforces body standards. This young lady is beautiful, but she can identify the value in everything she does. She knows her beauty is inside and out. She is at an age when she is highly influenced and is beginning to question the way she looks and thankfully thanks to some awesome influencers who set their own standards every day she has gained even more confidence! Thank you @camimendes @thebirdspapaya @mikzazon Thanks to her and this journey I am starting to value the things that I contribute to the world. Please set your own standards Be a great example with the words you use and the attitude you have towards yourself and others. Xxxxxxx

My cool down while mommin’ 😹😹 I love the flexibility of my home fitness. I love that I can wake up early, stay up late, or just do it while my kids are running around me. My kids are so use to mommy’s workouts that they don’t hassle me (😪for the most part). There’s no travel time to and from the gym, and/or sitters. There’s no rushing to the gym before my husband leaves for work or hoping he makes it back in time for me to catch a gym class. I also love that they are seeing my process. My kids are seeing my transformation first hand. My health and fitness isn’t some kind of mystery to my kids. They’ll never wonder how they can lead healthy lives because they’ve witnessed it. #settingexamples #momminstrong #mycrazylife #workingoutwhilemommin #momlife #findingthetime #freddyandsadie #makemusclesnotexcuses #teambeachbody

Sweet Summertime! Getting to soak up our last few weeks of summer by traveling back to my hometown and showing my littles all my old stomping grounds (of my younger years that is)😉 Seeing family and friends and just reminiscing of the good ole days when all I worried about was getting to school on time and what we were doing on Friday nights! Oh to be young and care free again! Right?!? . . With all the technology and busy rush of life it’s kinda nice to step back. Just a reminder you can’t take the “STUFF” with you when you leave this earth but you can leave a legacy. After listening to @malloryervin podcast of her talking with her dad and him leaving a legacy for his children and grandchildren got me thinking. What am I doing to leave a legacy? . . If you haven’t checked out that podcast I will link it in my bio under MALLORY ERVIN PODCAST.

8 months 🌷 For us, 8 months isn't just about celebrating 8 incredible months with this beautiful human. It's not just about everything she's learned or how our hearts have grown x3000. The 8 month mark is also a milestone for me. Breastfeeding didn't work how I planned. But I found a way to make it work. Exclusive pumping. I thought I was taking the easy way out. I didn't realise it was so demanding and time consuming. I have spent around 2 hours a day for just over 6 months, washing pump parts, steralising and preparing bottles (with H's help). Every day I have to evaluate whether there is enough milk, how long I can keep it unrefrigerated, when that bottle in the fridge was pumped and how long until it can't be used. I have cried over roughly a litre of milk that has been spilt, spoiled or refused. I fought a major drop in supply, dragging myself through every increase option I could find. Months of hard work and dedication to get from 30ml to 260ml in a single session. I have been attached to a machine that tugged at the most sensitive part of my body for around 19000 minutes. I have been out to lunch, in the car, at work, in public and in privacy, pumping. I have juggled my baby climbing over me like a jungle gym while I'm pumping, pulling cords out, missing letdowns, spilling milk because she's crying and I have to pick her up. I have missed a lot. A lot of time with her, a lot of being present and enjoying the moment, a lot of family functions, a lot of rest and a whole lot of cuddles. But she has gained so much. Do I plan on stopping? Sure. Sometime. But not now. For now, I'm letting my body take the reins, instead of fighting so hard to maintain an everchanging supply. I've dropped some pumps to make work life easier. And it's helped with my focus and mental health too. But you know what I've learned from this? When you put your mind to something, you are the only thing stopping you from achieving your goals. And you are the only one who can motivate you enough to do what needs to be done. Because I wanted to, and was told I could, give up. Often. This has been a hell of a journey. And sure, it's been hard. But I wouldn't change this for the world.
