Time is challenging when you work full time and have a job that doesn't just switch off at quitting time... or have children involved in multiple activities... yada yada yada... if there is one thing I have learned, it's you NEVER have the time.... BUT you can MAKE the time. 
Me time was squeezed in after school and before football practice and concession duty! #pheonix #riseagain #workingonme #maketime #momof2 #anxietyfighter #busymom #teachermom #fall #refusedefeat

When I came across Lisa's story, I almost cried.
.
I felt like she was telling so many parts of my story and I could totally relate.
.
Maybe it will connect with you too! Read on to hear her story! .
Lisa was used to taking care of her three kids; learning to take care of herself changed everything.
.
This mom of three had a million things on her mind other than herself. Between cooking for her family, feeding her newborn, playing referee between her older kids, and dealing with the busyness of everyday life, she put her own health on the back burner.
.
She’d often begin to try and live a healthier lifestyle, but then quit before she saw results. Her confidence was low, and she felt like she didn’t measure up to healthy, fit people.
.
Her energy levels were at an all-time low. Nap time for the kids had become her nap time, too. And when she started getting winded walking up the stairs and lost the motivation to run around with her kids, she knew she had to change something to be the mom she wanted for her kids.
.
A friend suggested a challenge group, the strategy she herself had used to lose 20 pounds after pregnancy.
.
At first, the cost seemed prohibitive. Three young children aren’t cheap, and Lisa was hesitant to spend money on herself. “There was definitely the thought that I couldn’t spend money on me because there was always something else that needs to be paid or bought,” she says.
.
But she finally jumped in and 43lbs weight loss later and a new mindset, Lisa is more than happy she gave it a chance.
.
Thank you so much Lisa for sharing your story!!! You are an inspiration to so many busy moms out there!
.
If Lisa's story spoke to you too, reach out!

9 years ago, I was driving to school the day after Labor Day when I had a debilitating panic attack. I remember just leaving my development when I could hardly breathe. I was hyperventilating, sweating, + in tears. But nothing had happened. Nothing. I was simply in my car, driving alone, to my first day of school.
.
8 years ago, I spent an entire summer playing a lazy girl game: I would wake up, sit on my couch, + say I could sit as long as it took me to finish the #newyorktimescrossword online. But right before I’d finish, I’d call my mom to see if she finished. Then I’d scroll @theperezhilton, binge reruns of Reba + House + Sex and the City, negotiating with myself to do something on my to-do list after the next episode—only to find another excuse to sit + scroll.
.
And before that, during one college summer, I turned down a trip to England to study in a historic castle + turned down a post-graduation year of traveling as a national leadership consultant for my sorority—both because I feared missing out on the life + friends around me. And after that I hid in the bathroom at my job for much longer than my #pumpingmom sessions required, just hoping to miss out on the life + people around me.
.
My anxiety has taken many forms. In the past, it has bordered on depression, it has impacted my health, + it has kept me from living bigger. It rarely, though, took my smile. In fact, I remember reaching out to a guidance counselor at school many years ago, looking for the name of a therapist after my general physician diagnosed me. She looked at me quizzically from across her desk: “but you’re always smiling.” ☺️ But I was just smiling.
.
Now, I’m not just smiling—I’m really smiling, inside out. It’s taken work. It’s taken daily effort to manage my stress (always a #workinprogress) + to get clear on who I want to be + to take action aligned with my priorities + to focus on overall wellness every single day. You can get out of this rut. You can do more than “just smile.” You can smile + mean it. Ask for help to break your patterns + to find your way. Your real self awaits. 💗

Oh this smile is how I feel inside right now. Happy to be home with my boy! I had a hard time leaving him this morning, but I am so beyond grateful that a very close friend near and dear to my heart is the one who gets to love on him!
💚
Today was one of those days I had to rely solely on the strength of God... oh wait every day has been like that since being a mama!😁 Today just a little extra. I think that’s what God wants though, a heart transformed, a heart that’s humbled, a heart that relies on Him for strength in every moment.

You can kind of see my @risenmotherhood tee, I wore it today and it was a constant reminder of my calling as a mother and follower of Christ. Serving God & serving my family.💚💕😍 #mamalife #boymom #momlifestyle #workingmom #teachermom

Getting ready for the Trick or Treat Trot on Sunday. 2 miles this morning before my regular workout.  Good thing too because I ate entirely too much popcorn and Reese’s at the movies tonight! 🍿🍫 #moderationnotdeprivation #familydatenight #chocolateandpeanutbutter

Took the kids on another nature walk over the weekend. We are trying to squeeze in as many outdoor days as possible before snow comes. It's been unusually cold this October. Most days we're barely hitting mid 50s. This time last year it was almost 70. .

Took the kids on another nature walk over the weekend. We are trying to squeeze in as many outdoor days as possible before snow comes. It's been unusually cold this October. Most days we're barely hitting mid 50s. This time last year it was almost 70. . . Our daughter is 2.5 and is known to say really weird things that seem to come out of nowhere. As we are walking, to no one in particular (probably herself, honestly) she says, "YEE HAW! I'm a cowboy!" Which she then repeated over and over again for the next half hour. . . Me: "If you're a cowboy then where is your horse?" Willow: "I dont know, it's lost. All gone. I miss my horse." She then started getting really sad. She has a lot of empathy. She was so concerned about the fictitious horse and where it had gone. "Imma cry. I miss my horse." Mind you, she's never even seen a horse. . . Oddly enough, one of the trails leads to a historic home where the local mounted unit horses are kept. We decided to detour over that way. She was practically running the whole time and with how small she is her feet were moving fast than legs could keep up. . . As we rounded the corner to their field, one of the horses immediately came to get her. And you know what? She was TERRIFIED, probably because they're a lot bigger than she was expecting. . . Daddy picked her up to get a closer look and she started shouting, "No, I dont like it. I don't like it horse. " . . Now when we ask her if she is a cowboy she immediately says, "No, I dont like it." Still, I'm so glad we got to share that with her...even if it wasn't everything she thought it would be. . . . . . #homeschoolcommunity #365homeschool #homeschooling #teachermom #unschool #unschoollife #welleducatedheart #hsmomlife #homeschoolcollective #freetolearn #freeschool #howwehomeschool #horses #living_homeschool #learningwell #intentionalhomeschooling #livinghomeschool #lifeschool #lifeschooling #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolers #homeschoolfamily #naturestudy #naturewalk #naturetrail #hiking #thingstoddlersdo #toddlers #momlife

Making these shelves can take a little bit of time and some imagination but once it is all laid out, we are definitely more motivated to do the activities. This is the third themed learning shelf I‘ve made and we have loved each of them. I’m super inspired by @happytotshelf She’s so good at making fun shelves. Have you seen her page? We hope to continue doing them and learning new things through them.

Ever wonder what a homeschoolers day looks like?  For those who are curious, now that I have big-ish kids, this is how we structure our day. If you’d like the details on how we make it all work, I wrote about it on my blog. I’d be happy to DM you the link. Otherwise, you can find it by tapping up there 👆🏻 in my profile. •

Today I'm guilty of not being the best teacher 🤷😣 I'm having a rough time with my grandpa passing, my brother is getting ready to head back to the army until January and I'm just feeling super emotional. 😭

Today I'm guilty of not being the best teacher 🤷😣 I'm having a rough time with my grandpa passing, my brother is getting ready to head back to the army until January and I'm just feeling super emotional. 😭 So today when my students weren't being the 👼 they were yesterday I got a little (maybe more) grumpy.😖 I couldn't figure out why they were so out of control, mind you my "out of control" isn't really out of control for other people. Anyways I got home and was really thinking about our day. Honestly it wasn't that bad but I didn't sleep great last night so on top of being emotional I'm really tired.😟 So tomorrow I'm apologizing to my kids first thing. 🤷Why? Because I messed up, I was not being my best because I was tired and have a lot going on but I always tell them "even if you're tired you need to do your best." I'm not above apologizing to my kids or admitting when I'm wrong. So tomorrow we'll start fresh and I'll leave my personal life in the car and focus on the kids in a positive way.

Somewhere along the way I stopped hiding behind my kids and using my kids as an excuse.
.
I wasn’t showing up for myself because I was too busy, my plate was full, three kids, a full time job, a home, and the list goes on.
.
I was neglecting myself.  My plate wasn’t full, I just wasn’t prioritizing.  All those things are still on my list, and even more, and I’m thriving.
.
Grateful for the self awareness this opportunity has given me.  The pride to take that picture, stand proudly next to my kids instead of behind them, hold my chin up, and own who I am. .
Be the example, show your kids what hard work, dedication, and self care look like. .
I’ve found more than accountability and support, I found confidence, strength, self love, and a belief unlike any other.  And the best part, I found my tribe.  People who want more, believe in more, and aren’t afraid to do the work to be more!!!
.
Curious about this coaching opportunity and what it’s done for me?? My team is hosting an informational hangout and we’d love to share how this opportunity can work for you!  Want the deets, message me and I’ll get you a link to pop in and learn.

This 👆... After a few days of parent conferences with 24 parents in my classroom, & reflecting on my own role as a mother... this quote couldn't ring more true. We all have good & bad days in regards to #parenthood, but my hope is that I teach enough love, kindness, & respect to shape the lives of my own children. It's so hard to get down on yourself on the bad days.. & the feeling of regret for not doing our best in every moment. I'm definitely not proud of every moment of my motherhood journey, but that makes me human. I think most parents would agree that they want what's best for their child, & we hope that they grow up to be happy, respectful, & loved... There will always be worry. I'm constantly worrying AM I DOING ENOUGH as a mother? Am I teaching my children all they need? Am I spoiling them too much? Am I setting boundaries & holding them accountable? Am I teaching them love & compassion? Am I doing enough to teach them faith? Am I enough? The list goes on... So, in this moment, I’m going to just remember this quote & do my best, whatever that may look like in each & every moment & be happy knowing I was given the best job of all. ❤️ #motherhood

PROUD AF of this new momma right here!! .
.
.
July 2018 vs October 2018

Sweet little Mila sure has one badass momma as her role model! She has been working hard to balance life as a new mom, as a full time professional, AND find time for herself and her health. You can’t be at your best for others if you aren’t feeling your best deep down. 
Clean nutrition with a few treats (while nursing 🤱🏼). 4 workouts a week, less than 40 minutes each.

A little bit of lifting, cardio and core work.

AND @kwolffwellness hasn’t even completed this 8 week program yet!! Can’t wait to see you continue to kick butt with this program. 🤘🏼

Life happens and we all have days that don’t go as planned!  I. GET. IT!  Today was that kind of day for me! 
For the first time ever, I pushed play and did a quick workout at 9 PM! 
My kids asked, “ Mom, you’re seriously going to do a workout now?” My response...”YEP!  I didn’t get my butt out of bed this morning and today was busy, so now is the time!” I have NO excuses!  I SHOW UP for ME every day!!! Are you on the struggle bus right now?  I can help!  Send me a message!!!

The bump sticks out a bit more after dinner and I ain’t mad about it. 😝 This time of night all I want is a hot bath, ice chips, and a back rub. Instead it includes...chasing Mavi up the stairs to take a bath while he tries to hide in Oliver’s bed, a warm bath with my toddler, and ok well...ice chips are still a win 💁🏼‍♀️ #thirdtrimesterproblems

🇦🇷Con mucha tristeza en el alma, le digo “hasta siempre” a mi tercera bebé, @creativamenteregaleria. Casi melliza de mi segundo hijo, me deja tantos recuerdos, muuuuucho aprendizaje y deseos de dar lo mejor a la infancia. Fue un sueño cumplido y me hubiera gustado muchísimo verla crecer como yo quería.

Siento que una huellita, algo dejó, porque la gente amaba venir, jugar, preguntar y compartir sus formas de crianza.

Hoy cambio mi título de #mamáemprendedora por el de #mamádocente, pero sigo siendo una #mamáindependiente y voy a luchar para seguir así.

Sigo estudiando, sigo con mi proyecto de convertirme en escritora bilingüe y tengo fe en que todo es para mejor SIEMPRE. 🇺🇸 Today I’m officially announcing that I’m going out of the toy business. I’m not going to be a #mompreneur anymore, but I’m keeping the #teachermom and #freelancemom titles though.

I’m sad. You see, it’s like saying goodbye to a relative. It was born with my second child; they were like twins!

I know it’s for the best. Now I’ll keep studying and dreaming of becoming a bilingual writer someday. 🙏🏻 #bilingualblog #momlife #outofbusiness #blogbilingüe #mamareal #vidademadre #hastasiempre #mamabloguera #mamablogger #momblogger

Some days, like today, I feel alllll the #momguilt for deciding to go back to work. Tonight when I got in, I only got to spend 30 minutes with my little guy before it was his bedtime 😢 But, I love teaching and love being with my school babies all day...and I know that right now, it’s what’s best for our family. For this season, I’ll soak up all the minutes I get at home with this precious boy, all the new Fall/Christmas traditions, and every hug he decides to give me. I’ve learned so much about putting my focus all into wherever I am in that moment recently...which has been a great life lesson ♥️ Let’s cheer each other on (mama or not) in the comments below. Tell me something GOOD that happened in your day today! #workingmomlife #mindsetshift #debtfreejourney #selfcaretips #edrecovery #valueyourself #highvibetribe #positiveliving #bemindful #workingmama #teachertribe #discoverunder10K #discoverunder5k #teachermom #positivity #fall #falltraditions #babyrep #toddlerrep

You will never become who you want to be if you keep blaming others for who you are. ▪️ —I will never be thin...it’s not in my genes. —I can’t get smaller, I’m big boned.

EXCUSES! 
I told myself these things because I wasn’t willing to put in the effort to make my goals happen.  I had all the excuses! 
Weight problems run in my family...
Too tired from work...
Too busy with kids...
Not enough money…
Tomorrow... But the truth is, I was lying to myself.  I didn’t want to be “uncomfortable”...I didn’t want it enough.  I had to own it and change it FOR myself! 
You are not a victim of age, genetics, or anything else.  YOU are the author of your story...rewrite it!

Guys. I killed my exercise goal today. Lately I find myself only having my watch on to track things while I’m at work which is really discouraging when I look back at my log on my watch. •
Today I came home from work, made dinner for my loves, got some dishes and laundry done, and then walked a few miles. And it feels SO GOOD. •
Not only that but I talked about my struggle with fear in my stories today while we were out walking! •
I’m definitely not where I want to be in any area of my life. Yet. But today I got closer than I have in a long time. I feel like I was finally able to express my heart and put things out into the universe that I feel good about. •
Not to mention my body feels HAPPY! It feels good that I included my little one and my pups in my exercise instead of just working out in the living room. It feels good that I was able to breathe in oxygen on my own turf and not just while outside on recess or bus duty. It feels good to be able to say that I met my goal. •
I pushed aside what was convenient for what brought me closer to my happy place, and now-as I’m watching my child play fetch with himself-I feel better. I feel content. •

#TeacherMagic✨ loves... @readlikearockstar for her ability to explain racism and systematic oppression in a way that ignites other educators to evaluate their own practices and do better. You can witness this through the personal experiences she shares, quotes, and social studies resources (created alongside her teacher bestie, LaNesha Tabb). She is an unapologetically proud Black woman✊🏾 that is out here making a major difference inside and outside her classroom. The work that Naomi does is extremely courageous and definitely not easy, so, head over to her page, @readlikearockstar and show this girl some major love and encouragement for taking time out of her busy life to speak up about one of the major issues in our education system, and world, today. #teachermagic #teacherlove #teacherspotlight

#TransformationTuesday 🤪
.
As we get closer and closer to meeting our little dude, I get a little bit more hormonal and nostalgic about the journey we’ve been on.
.
It was a surprise finding out (at #15WeeksPostpartum) that I was pregnant with our second babe. After being told our odds of conceiving naturally were less than 3%, we didn’t even think twice about the possibility of getting pregnant so soon — but, thankfully, God had other plans 🙏🏼
.
When I found out I was pregnant, I was at a point where I was finally feeling like I was getting to my new normal. I was more comfortable in my clothes again, starting to see some abs sneak their way through, and feeling accomplished in my fitness level while completing an 80 day program.
.
Knowing I was able to do it before, that I have this quick/easy access to workouts from my living room while babes nap, and all the nutritional resources under the sun — makes me confident that we’ll get there again!
.
Being on bed rest now isn’t easy, but I’ve been lucky enough to workout and stay active in pregnancy up to this point. Honestly, just embracing the “calm” now, and looking forward to getting to a whole NEW normal when this dude gets here 🙌🏼💙

We love Mouse’s First Halloween! Mouse hears a lot of different noises on Halloween night. At first the sounds might be spooky but when he investigates maybe they aren’t so scary after all 🎃 🍁 🦇 🐈

Halloween cookie making- so simple but such loved practical work for this little guy. 👨‍🍳 It’s hard with a toddler and a baby to remember to slow down and let him do each step of the baking- but it’s always so worth it when I do! Glad we snuck this in while the babe napped today. 🎃

There is something so cozy and wholesome about farm books isn’t there?  I mean, there has got to be a reason why farm books and farm children products are so popular right?! Maybe it’s the idea that they are full of so many fun animals, maybe it’s the fact that they produce yummy food, maybe it’s the thought of a picturesque red barn, or maybe its all the big equipment with wheels for little vehicle lovers?  Or maybe it’s all of the above.  I know for us it is! Today on the blog we are sharing 20+ of our favorite farm picture and board books.  Check them out through the link in my profile!

Rewind about 3 years ago when I returned to work after having my first, sweet Graham.  I was an emotional mess, leaving my little guy for the first time after what I would consider to be a bit of a bumpy road.  The husband was working full time and pursuing his MBA.  To say we were busy was an understatement, and while I had been in a pretty great routine with my workouts, I stopped.  I stopped because I was exhausted.  I stopped because my brain told me I couldn’t fit it in.  I stopped because I didn’t have the support, motivation or accountability to push me to MAKE the time. .
.
Now here I am returning to work after 9 months of leave, in a new building/district/position and this time it is DIFFERENT!  I didn’t even give my mind a second to think it couldn’t fit in one more thing.  I KNEW I had to make the time for ME and I had the support, motivation and accountability from a very special group to make it happen.  So yes, I wake up at 4am to fit it in.  Am I still exhausted?  You bet!!!!! BUT, I refuse to let my mind trick me again because I am stronger now! .
.
Transformations don’t always need to be physical.  The mental transformation is where the magic happens and I am just so grateful to be supported by such an amazing community.  #riseupempire

Mental strength is my favorite part of my transformation. 💃💃
Sweat therapy has pushed me through some challenging stuff. I rely on MY time to keep me centered each day. 
I’m learning that we have the power to make our thoughts positive... I have learned to work on this daily. 💃
I’ve also filled my mind with so much motivation and drive that I have turned into a teacher who is also managing a full time side hustle. 💃💃
Mental strength has been my best transformation. It’s made me who I am today. 
I am here always. ❤️❤️#momswhohustle #teachermomlife #teachermom #momofgirlslife #momofgirls

#transformationtuesday 💕
This just popped up in my FB memories so I figured it would be perfect to share. This was 4 years ago, when Madi was in 2nd grade with @carp2nds (and now I’m fortunate enough to be teaching 2nd grade right alongside her). This was a big transitional time for us! We were pretty sure for a long time that Madison was going to be an only child like me. We made the very best decision of our lives and decided to give her a sibling! What a funny, sweet, smart and silly little guy he turned out to be! 💙 So much like her yet so different too! I am a very lucky mama!

This little guy is super excited for the Flu Fry at Daddy’s work -
💉
Fish fry, flu shots and tractors make for a fun night -
🚜
I love seeing my babies experience things for the first time -
☝🏻
This is his first time to be up and close to all the different equipment -

Spooky Stew 🕷 🥣- H pretty much begs me every day all day to get in the bath so he can scoop and pour so I’m always looking for ways to incorporate water play into our day...this afternoon we whipped a easy batch of “spooky stew” using some of our Halloween trinkets . I tinted the water with a bit of green jello powder (smelled quite nice), added in various scoops and containers, and H was ready to play! Age:18 mos

Love when I find a twitter post from my daughter’s teacher acknowledging a small gift she gave her. I’m so grateful for @dacovard and the impact she is having on my daughter. #relationshipsmatter #teachingfromtheheart #earlychildhoodeducation
