You wouldn't believe me if I told you why I'm even out. It's great when your kids call a sitter for you because they understand daddy needs a break. Let's start in Birminham, and see what's next. I'm thinking @ghopunderground later. Some music would be awesome later. #Detroit #Suburbs #ItCouldGetUgly #Weekend #DadsGetsNightsOut #DomesticEngineer #Time #Valuable #HitMeUp #Lol

WHY AM I SO EXCITED?!? ... Because in less than 1 month, I'll be able to sign up as an "OFFICIAL" online health and fitness coach!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 I'll be able to help so many people reach their goals, with the EXACT things that have helped me reach mine! After I had my first (ariana) via c-section, I had over 60lbs to lose. 🙈🙈 I lost not only that, but PLUS some, all from my living room👊. I actually got in the BEST shape of my entire life this way. Now, after my second, (jaxson) via c-section again, I'm on my way back there doing the same thing! I would have NEVER thought in in a million years that I could get into the best shape of my life, from home. I thought id have to be in the gym, training for hours a day. Yeah, i was wrong... I didnt want to beleive it and I was the most skeptical person on the planet! ... But look at me now😉😉 I'm proving myself wrong, and I'm going to prove to everyone else that its possible, IF YOU WANT IT. Will you join me?? . . . #weightloss   #SAHM #domesticengineer #eatingdisorder #strongmom #fitmoms #momlife #cesarean #mixedkids #healthy #girlswholift   #workouts #peanutbutterlover #weightlosstips #muscle #fitness #beforeandafter #shrinkabooty #motivation #transformation #militarywife #airforce #runner #run #anxiety #esthetitian #foodie #hotmessexpress

One of things I LOVE about having a budget; practising contentment; and decluttering, is that it, ultimately, gives me more money to GIVE BACK! When I have less, I want less. When I focus on contentment, I RELEASE my grip on my obsession with "the Joneses". I see what I never saw before. I AM rich. I AM wealthy because my basic needs are ALWAYS met. Then, instead of staring, longingly at the Joneses, I realize I AM the Joneses. Then, I HAPPILY, and without hesitation, GIVE BACK. My church is doing their annual food drive this week for the food bank. This is what I'm donating (+ 2 cans of diced tomatoes added after pic taken) Total cost approx $10 Canadian. If you managed to be under budget this week (2 weeks strong for me💪), one option is to put those saved dollars towards helping your local food bank. Have a lovely weekend, everyone! See you all Monday.❤ #helpthoseinneed #givetothefoodbank #frugalliving #livingonabudget #groceriesonabudget #eatingfromhome #shopyourpantry #menuplanning #momlife #homeeconomist #domesticengineer #godisgood #savedbygrace #gratitude #contentment #simpleliving #simplicity #decluttering

I had such an awesome day with this guy today. It reminded me that my “stay-at-home-mom/domestic engineer lack of ‘ambition’” guilt is a bunch of B.S. (and primarily self inflicted, mind you). We are all meant to thrive in different areas - and I’m kicking ass in the ways that matter to me. #luckyaf #feminist #mammaof3boys #stayathomemom #domesticengineer #proud #happymamma #happywifeof15years #togetherforamillion @davey_train #hobbesthecat

99% of diets FAIL within the first 2 years! If you were at a car dealership and the salesman offered you a deal on a beautiful car, stating, "there is a 99% chance this car will completely bite the dust in the first 2 years", would you buy it? And yet, we DO buy it. Every. Single. Day. Why? Because we are drawn to images and promises of perfection. We want "instant" results. There's just nothing attractive about imperfection, hard work, or slooooow progress and change. And that 1%? Well, it gets ALL the attention! It sells. This leads us to falsely believe that it's not JUST attainable, but also SUSTAINABLE for the other 99%. When we can't sustain it, we believe that we are failures and it's our fault for not being in the 1% club. Your life is not a sprint! It's a marathon. If you want to reach the finish line, please, pace yourself. That applies to all your goals along the way, too. Stop looking at false images and messages of perfection. This picture is my shadow. My legs do NOT actually look like this! Not even close. I'm learning to be fine with my REAL legs that got me outside walking in the sunshine this morning. Make sure that your pace allows for pleasure, as well. #noperfection #nocomparison #noillusions #eatingdisorderrecovery #slowandsteady #simplicity #simpleliving #momlife #frugalliving #changeyourmindset #balancedliving #smallchanges #contentment #mentalclutter #youtoyou #youareenough #savedbygrace #budgetingforlife #mentalhealthawareness #selfcareisfree #exerciseisfree #healthyonabudget #domesticengineer

Remember the post I did waaaaay back when, on my home-made granola? Same recipe. Except I switched out the cinnamon for 1/4 cup cocoa powder! YA, I DID!! First time I didn't have to tell the kiddos to hurry so they don't miss the bus!😁 Don't go buying expensive seeds for this. As long as the total quantity of seeds is 1-1/2 cups, it will work. I buy my seeds from the bulk food containers at the grocery store.👍 #wholefood #homemadegranola #momlife #eatfromhome #cookathome #frugalliving #healthyliving #homeeconomist #domesticengineer #groceriesonabudget #usingupfood #menuplanning #simpleliving #simplicity #breakfast #healthybreakfastideas #debtfreeliving #debtfreejourney #chocolateforbreakfast #pantrygamechallenge

Today was a high carb day, so i did my hardest work out! Leg daaaaaay!!!! Lol Yesterday I literally FOUGHT myself the entire time during insanity. I wanted to give up, so every 5 minutes I would try and give myself excuses as to why it would be okay to stop... but I didn't let my brain win. I fought through! Today, I just incorporated cardio moves into my lifting routine, so for every heavy weighted move, I did a plyometric move right after, to intensify it, keep my heart rate up, and basically kill myself😂😂😂. If you're ever interested in grabbing one of my work out routines, just message me! Id love to share new ideas💗💗.

#waybackwednesday Facebook reminded me of a post from a couple years ago when I decided to quit my job and stay home with my 3. We were finally in a position that it made sense and I was so excited. I still am. I count my blessings daily that I get to drive them to school, hang out at libraries, be there for all their hugs and kisses. I thank my husband that he goes to work everyday to support our family. There are hard days too, constant budgeting and vacations seem so far away, but it’s been worth it for us and a decision I don’t regret ever. Now could someone please stop them from growing up on me. #my3 #spencehome #sahm #stealingallthehugsandkisses #besthusband #hardworker #domesticengineer #homemaker #home #allthelove #family #spencefamily

When I first, show up for myself; I can then, show up for everyone and everything else. Mental health matters! And thank you, @happilygreengirl and @caraclarknutrition for always inspiring me to get a few more plants in my tummy! Update: (since one of you asked)🙌 I prefer to make my oatmeal in a pot. The ratio is 1:2. So, for 4 people, that's 2 cups of quick oats + 4 cups of water. Cook and stir on medium heat 'til thickened. I topped it with brown sugar, frozen (thawed), mixed berries, and chopped walnuts. My kids add a bit of milk to theirs. I sometimes mash a 1/2 banana (per serving) with the oats/water before cooking. With the bananas and berries added, I find I don't need any sugar. In the microwave, SAME ratio oats:water. My microwave, I cook for 1 min. There you go! Add whatever floats your boat. You do you, on YOUR budget, ok!👍 #momlife #simplicity #simpleliving #frugalliving #groceriesonabudget #feedyoursoul #selfcareisfree #balancedliving #menuplanning #wholefood #youdoyou #mentalhealthawareness #healthyeatingonabudget #domesticengineer #debtfreeliving #contentment #beingintentional

"I knew people could change. I also knew some people just changed locations."-Mitch Album, from "have a little faith" Ever heard of "addiction transference"? Obsession transference Compulsion transference Idol worship transference and on and on... For people like me, who have grown up believing their emotions are TOO BIG, TOO MESSY, TOO MUCH, there are no shortage of opportunities to hide your emotions and "self-medicate". It's SO easy to jump from 1 quick-fix to another, 1 extreme to another, but never REALLY change. "We repeat what we don't repair", as @essentialsavingmama posted this morning. Don't believe, as I have done, that your painful emotions are TOO MUCH for God. People told you that. NOT God. Decluttering is very good. But, it won't heal you. Eating healthy and exercising is very good. But, it won't heal you. Getting rid of debt is very good. But, it won't heal you. Having 2000 followers that you can influence, in a positive way, is very good. But, it won't heal you. I've tried IT ALL! Ok, not drugs or alcohol, but probably just because they weren't available. The only remedy to whatever hole we've dug ourselves into, is God. He is perfectly capable of carrying IT ALL. #bebrave #takethefirststep #tellthetruth, and trust that He's got you!🙏 #noextremes #noperfection #nocomparison #usesocialmediaforgood #balancedliving #journalling #healthyliving #mentalhealthawareness #addictiontransference #simplicity #simpleliving #savedbygrace #selfcareisfree #truthisfree #peaceandcontentment #reallife #momlife #debtfreeliving #frugalliving #godheals #gentleexercise #domesticengineer #getyourvitamind

#Transformationtuesday No matter how many times you “fall off track”, No matter how many times you don’t get it right, No matter how many times you feel stuck and like you have so far to go… Please know that there is nothing wrong with you. We all struggle, and its part of the growth process! The #1 thing is to not GIVE UP. You'll never know what you're capable of, what challenges you can over come, or know the feeling of being so proud that you accomplished something HUGE, if you give up. I've personally struggled big time, this whole past year. I've struggled staying focused, and getting out of my own head. I've let my inner demons tell me that I won't get to where I want to be, or that there was something wrong with me, so why even try.?? I had to call bullsh*t on myself! Lol (as weird as that sounds) If you want something, it can happen. Its just A matter of how hard you're willing to work for it? How flexible are you willing to be? If One Thing Isn't Working, try switching it up. MAKE. IT. HAPPEN. I'm Not To My Goal Yet, but I'm 100% closer than I would be if I were to give up like I wanted to do a million times. 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 YOU'VE GOT THIS! 👊👊 . . . #weightloss   #SAHM #domesticengineer #eatingdisorder #strongmom #momlife #cesarean #mixedkids #healthy #girlswholift   #workouts #peanutbutterlover #weightlosstips #muscle #fitness #beforeandafter #shrinkabooty #motivation #transformation #militarywife #airforce #runner #run #anxiety #esthetitian #foodie #hotmessexpress

Two Days With No Phone!! Please know, this is NOT a post to shame others. NO WAY! This is something I needed to do. I share so others may learn from my weaknesses, as well as my strengths. I share because it keeps me accountable. Without my phone, I heard my own internal thoughts WAY more. I went for a one hour walk with my 14 year old son, on a VERY rare spring"ish"😒 day. We talked. A LOT! #teenstalkwhentheywalk I smiled, said hello to EVERYONE that passed, and chatted with 3 strangers. I read 3/4 of a book (Mitch Albom's "have a little faith"). THIS book brought tears, but mostly, it made me think. GREAT read! I talked to a few friends at church; one who just recently lost her husband. She is 70 ( I actually LOVE having friends of all ages). She has never been alone before. I held her hand and walked her into church. We are meeting for coffee this week. I took my family out for sushi for my son's birthday (which was a week ago). We had a wonderful time. I went for an oil change and to fix my windshield, and had long conversations with the 3 men involved. Two of them seemed stressed, rough around the edges..."tough" guys. But, as we chatted, they softened. I wished them a good day. They smiled. I think I made theirs' better. Most of all, I discovered #gratitude. In my little corner of the world, in my "simple" moments, I found #abundance. #simpleliving #simplicity #talktostrangers #balancedliving #unplug #momlife #stressfreeliving #selfcareisfree #boundariesarefree #healthyliving #mentalhealthawareness #smileatsomeone #clutterfreeliving #mentalclutter #debtfreeliving #raisingteens #settinganexample #reallife #loveyourself #youbeyou #noperfection #nocomparison #frugalliving #lifeonabudget #domesticengineer #spreadwealth

BALANCE. . It’s a buzz word these days. Keeping things in balance is a good practice... . But most times it’s for sure easier said than done. . On this Sunday for example... we are totally out of BALANCE. . We are going heavy on rest and napping and watching Netflix.. . And super light on work and household chores. Our overall productivity is at Zero full stop. . And I for one am totally cool with that. 😊 . This Sunday we are resting and recharging. The other stuff will be there waiting in the morning. . PS. I took this picture with my cellphone while walking along moonlight beach in San Diego. . There were hundreds of these staked stones which represent balance. It was an amazing sight to see and we even stacked some stones of our own. . Super fun! . Happy Sunday everyone!!! . #iphone #nofilter #stackingstones #balanced #balancerocks at Moonlight Beach

Let me stop you real quick from the perfectly edited, angled and lit photos that are bombarding your feed. These photos are probably doing more harm to our own self esteem, than good, (I'm guilty of playing the comparison game ✋🏻✋🏻too) and I'm here to tell you that EVERYONE has rolls when they sit. Moms: you may have extra skin from carrying around a human in your tummy that rapidly grew in just a few months. That's NORMAL.  Your stomach does not have to be perfectly flat to be healthy, your stomach does not have to be perfectly flat for you to love yourself, and your stomach does not have to be perfectly flat to be confident and beautiful and an all around amazing person. As a society, we shouldn't let physical characteristics set the standard for whether we deserve to love ourselves or not. Everyone deserves to love themselves, however I know that's easier said than done. After a lifetime of battling the scale, then to tack on 2 pregnancies and cesareans, you bet my stomach has taken a beating. But that doesn't mean that I'm throwing in the towel. Everyday I work at bettering myself, because I FEEL amazing when I do and its totally a confidence booster to think that I grew two human beings in this body and now I'm a bad ass boss babe reaching goals I never thought possible. The biggest challenge? Loving myself each day in the process. not comparing myself to someone elses' successes. Can you relate?? Don't fall for that Mess. You are your own bad ass babe that is unique and strong!! Nobody walks around flexing, sucking in, or whatever else is shown on social media. Love yourself as you are cause you are beautiful 💗. . . . #weightloss   #SAHM #domesticengineer #eatingdisorder #strongmom #momlife #cesarean #mixedkids #healthy #girlswholift   #workouts #peanutbutterlover #weightlosstips #muscle #fitness #beforeandafter #shrinkabooty #motivation #transformation #militarywife #airforce #runner #run #esthetitian #foodlover #hotmessexpress

I've done the "hide greens in a fruit smoothie" thang A LOT. But, I've NEVER done straight up greens and more greens. Nor will I ever advocate buying expensive "health" shakes, already made. My grocery store had a bag of 6 HUGE cucumbers on sale for $3.98. They are ENORMOUS. I've had a couple bags of kale in the freezer for a while (50% off-$2.98). I remembered the concoction😜 @freetofrugal was drinking the other day on her instastories and I thought, I have been feeling a little so-so lately. Should I? If I don't like it, I'll make cucumber and grape salad (see previous post) and just add it to our fruit smoothies. So. Yup. I'm sitting here drinking a really green smoothie, and IT'S SO GOOD!! So, THANKS, Kim, this is delicious! And it clocks in at around 75 cents (Canadian) a serving, and 3ish servings of fruits and veggies! Sometimes, it's good to try something new. Noone is more surprised than I am at how good this tastes!👍 #wholefood #drinkyourgreens #simplicity #simpleliving #healthyonabudget #savingmoneyonfood #selfcare #loveyourself #mentalhealthawareness #balancedliving #trynewthings #grocerybudgeting #domesticengineer #momlife #eatfromhome

One small change CAN yield big results! A few years ago I started drinking more water...a lot more water! Specifically, I made a point of downing 2 cups of water as soon as I got up in the morning. WHAT a difference! My energy level is better. My skin is better. My digestion is better. And, I'm WAY less likely to confuse hunger and dehydration. Grab a glass. Fill 'er up!

It’s Friday introductions day! YAY! . Except for that means posting a picture of myself….so here it is. This is a selfie taken yesterday in my car BEFORE going into the Salon to have my Hair GURU do his magic. . Which he did…but it was SO WINDY yesterday that when I came out of the salon I was practically blown away and my hair??? . Well…the color looks amazing but I didn’t think the wind blown look would do it justice (so.. no AFTER selfie…) . PHEW! I’m feeling a bit RAMBLY this morning. Too much coffee? PERHAPS. . Anyway…let’s do this. . How about 3 super random thoughts straight off the top of my head? (scary I know..) . 1. I like to put ketchup on my mac and cheese. I’m not sure when it started but it’s a thing.
 2. Motherhood is hands down the best thing I have ever experienced. t has brought the best and the worst out of me. It bends and stretches and molds me EVERYDAY. And the LOVE…there are not enough words.
 3. I’m a Capricorn. I’ve heard it means that I’m stubborn, loyal to a fault and a hard worker. Those things are all very true. So maybe there is something to it? Who knows? What I do know for sure is that I have been wonderfully made for a big purpose (we all have!) and I choose to trust in who GOD SAYS I AM. #Iamenough . OK…There you have it for today. What weird thing do YOU do to your food?? Are you a MOM? Tell me something about your MOMMY-HOOD life…. AND what do you put your FAITH in? Tell me something RANDOM about yourself. I really want to know. For reals. . HAPPY FRIDAY!!! #fridayintroductions #TGIF #happyfriday #extremecloseup

I had a daddy daughter breakfast at school today and it was very inspiring. My daughter needed to pay attention to the speakers they had, but she is on her own agenda on how life is suppose to be lived right now (defiant, and independent). She's 12 going on 13 and thinks her dad has never been through it(I'm the devil). Let me just say I was inspired this morning. As a parent I sometimes feel like I'm alone, but that's far from the case. We all go through our ups and downs with kids, and in one way or another we inspire each other by telling our experiences good and bad. I have to go home and put on my real work clothes( hoodie and sweats), and take off the real world attire. I don't want people getting the wrong idea.

Today was the first day all week that got to incorporate Complex carbs back into my plan, so I took advantage and did leg day today! My glycogen storages are still low from the last 3 days so I was a little weaker than normal, so I decided to lift lighter, and do more plyometrics for the cardio! So far this week, I'm down 5.6 lbs. I'm so happy I could cry. I feel better, I sleep better, and my cravings have been ZERO. I'm in disbelief! I'm planning on doing a seven day test group for those who are interested in trying this out too. For those who have been stuck, felt lost, frustrated and just need a change of peace. A fresh/new idea. I'm taking my week results on Saturday (cause I plan on splurging a bit Saturday night). Then come Monday its 3 weeks of learning how to carb cycle and make this a lifestyle. LOVE! YES I'm still incorporating shakeology ✌🏻. YES I'm using the container system ✌🏻 NO I'm not going to be counting macros out calories, but incorporating the right good in my diet. Noticing the booty gains today!! Only A couple days left with 80 day obsession!!!!!!

Don't stop showing your flaws and mistakes on social media! I, personally, prefer to see everyone's successes, strengths, tips and tricks, AS WELL as their weaknesses and failures. I learn from BOTH. One teaches me to strive for more; the other teaches grace and compassion. One is the life coach; the other is the patient parent. At different times, for different parts of my character, I need tough love AND I need mercy. So, these cookies are a big fail!😂 But, I ONLY see the 5 dozen others that turned out great! #neverstoplearning #snacksforteens going in the freezer right now! #progressnotperfection #bereal #usesocialmediaforgood #graceandmercy #noperfection #nocomparison #youbeyou #momlife #domesticengineer #frugalinthekitchen #bakingathome #grocerybudget #feedingfiveonabudget

OMG. I love, love, love these cute over-alls! I used to wear over-all shorts back in the 90’s…and I’m so stoked they are coming back!!! YAY!!! . These are the Mae Distressed Bib Overalls and they are only $45!!! What?!! (oh…by the way…this is not an ad!) . The only thing is: I’m not sure I can pull them off anymore? I need some advice from all you 50-something girls out there! . This is the deal….I don’t want to dress TOO YOUNG or TOO OLD. You know what I mean??? The struggle is REAL! . So many times I find the CUTEST stuff and then I stop myself thinking…I don’t want to look like one of those Grandma’s that dress like they just fell off of a forever 21 catalog. . But then…I don’t want to dress like I’ve got one foot in frumpy town. . It’s super hard to find a balance. Anyone out there in IG Land feel me?? . Signed, I just want to be me. And cute. And not look to old or too young.. LOL . #nottooold #nottooyoung #50somethingstyle #notanad #overalls

Ok. This is the deal. I have been battling with dry skin. I’m 55 years old and I just happen to live in the middle of the desert. It’s a dry heat. DRY. DRY. DRY. 🌵🌵🌵 . I have been using IT COSMETICS CC CREAM for over a year now and I still have mad love for it. It covers well, it blends great…but it can be a little drying at times. . BUT NOT TO WORRY! . In comes BYE-BYE FOUNDATION! And I’m in love! Full coverage, more color choices, and MOISTURE!!! YES!
. The only downside is that it doesn’t wear as long as the CC CREAM. Maybe it’s because I haven’t tried it with primer yet…(I’m out of primer!) So I need to do that.. . Anyway!!! I highly recommend you go get you some! . HAPPY THURSDAY EVERYONE!!! . #itcosmetics #byebyefoundation 📷: @sarahbrithinee

If you're constantly sabotaging your goals, it MAY be because you don't want to reach them as much as you THINK you do! Stay with me, folks. Take a GOOD look at the behaviour you're trying to stop. THERE IS GOLD IN THAT BEHAVIOUR! There IS a reason you've engaged in it for so long. People don't do things that have no reward. As Dr. Phil would ask, " what's your payoff?" Tell the truth. WHY do you like buying new clothes or home decor, when you can't afford it? Why do you like going to restaurants or making payments on your S.U.V? And, don't tell me it's because "the clothes look nice". Wrong answer! I eat spoonfuls of nutella, EVEN THOUGH I want to stay healthy. Occassionally, I just crave some chocolate. That's NORMAL. Usually, though, it's because it medicates me when I'm lonely, bored, scared, or tired. I want to reach my goals. But, yes, I want to avoid painful emotions EVEN MORE. Deep down, I don't think I can handle the pain. Deep down, I don't trust God to carry my pain. THAT'S the truth! Because, what I TRULY believe and want, is revealed in my behaviour, NOT my intentions. Until we understand our "payoffs" for our behaviour, we will NEVER make long term changes. So, don't be afraid to look inside your head and heart. Mental and emotional clutter CAN'T hurt you nearly as much as staying stuck will. Don't believe the lie that you and God can't handle the truth. Start sifting through it all. You WILL find gold! #debtfreeliving #clutterfreeliving #mentalclutter #eatingdisorderrecovery #simpleliving #simplicity #balancedliving #reachinggoals #realchange #stayingonbudget #freedomfromdebt #domesticengineer #momlife #trustgod #livebyfaith #progressnotperfection

I snapped this photograph of our daughter Justice 7 years ago in Waco, Texas. . If you have been having a bad day... then maybe this picture will put a smile on your face. . It sure helps me. This image speaks pure joy. Pure joy then when it was taken and pure joy now even 7 years ago. That’s what I love about photography. The moments that are frozen forever. . Another thing about this image is the location. This was taken in a huge field of blue bonnets. It was just beautiful. . There are a few things I miss about living in Texas and Blue Bonnets make the top five. There is just nothing like Blue bonnet season in Texas. . It’s hard to believe it been almost 6 years since we left Waco to come back home. Where does the time go? . #bluebonnets #wacotexas #purejoy❤️ at Waco, Texas

They tucked their tummy to save their pocket money because they want to get us the stuff we wanted. . When we’re sad, they felt it first in their heart and answered to us even before we call them. . We celebrate our birthday once a year but they celebrate ours setiap hari through out their whole life. . Our loyal best friend we never allow ourselves to see. . #selfreminder #sorrymom #mom #workingmom #stayathomemom #unconditionallove #bestfriend #bff #bestfriendforever #thankyoumom #lovehaterelationship #giftfromgod #letmeloveyou #likeforlike #followforfollow #followback #beautifulperson #mompreneur #domesticengineer #qualitytime #bonding #daughterandmom #appreciate #thankful #positivevibes #inspiration #myqueen #loveyoumom #beforeitstoolate #myangel

Day 2 on this new plan of mine, and my energy levels are rising. Day 1 was hard, adjusting to a new eating plan, lack of sleep, and sick kids just took a toll on my body yesterday, but TODAY. Today, I got a killer chest, biceps and triceps work out in, then went for a 3 mile run. It wasnt easy, but I'm looking forward to Thursday when I can add more things like, CARBS back in my diet😜🙌🏼🙌🏼. What did YOU do today?? . . . #weightloss   #SAHM #domesticengineer # #eatingdisorder #strongmom #momlife #cesarean #mixedkids #healthy #girlswholift   #workoutideas #peanutbutterlover #weightlosstips #muscle #fitness #beforeandafter #shrinkabooty #motivation #transformation #militarywife #airforce #runner #run #esthetitian #carblover #foodlover

On this Tuesday morning I just thought I would throw out a little reminder that NO is a full sentence. . Let your YES be YES! And do that YES with everything you’ve got.... . But that NO... just say NO and move on. You can say it nicely... with a sweet smile but say it! Just say NO. . Happy Tuesday everyone! . #justsayno #noisafullsentence #takecareofyourself #rest #shebelievedahecoukd #luvteeshop

Contentment means focussing on what you have; instead of what you don't. It means wanting and choosing to take very good care of what you already own. It means, every day, being grateful to God for what he's trusted you with. The bottom line is that what you are content with is most revealed in your actions. Change your actions. This pic was taken yesterday when I did my annual carpet steam cleaning. This + my "no shoes" rule (no rule required in Canada) prolongs the life of my carpets by many years. It's also $1000's cheaper than getting new flooring throughout my house. #contentment #iamblessed #momlife #frugalliving #choosingcontentment #choosingless #nospendmonth #simplicity #simpleliving #whyiclean #simpledecor #budgettingmaintenance #domesticengineer #loveyourhome #debtfreeliving #busybeingcontent

I'm constantly amazed at what I find around the house that can be #repurposed. Even with doing a MASSIVE #decluttering, I still notice I'm purchasing items, when, really, I already had something in the house that would have worked. A few years ago, I purchased a stainless steel fruit dish. It's quite big and didn't fit properly in the corner where I wanted it. I was going to replace it. So, yes, #wastemoney on a fruit bowl, TWICE! Then, I remembered my cake stand that is sitting in a cupboard UNUSED. It's PERFECT!! Should we ever need a cake stand, I can easily put the fruit somewhere else, pull out the lid, and use it to display a cake for a few days. The old fruit bowl? Oh, I'm not getting rid of it yet. Now that I have so few items left to declutter, I tend to give items a "30 day" waiting period. I try to practise #intentionaldecluttering in the same way that I practise #intentionalshopping. If I can find another use for it, it will stay. If not, it goes. Most often, it goes. This weekend, have a look around your home. You might be very surprised when you #shopyourhome, at what can serve another purpose.👍 #frugalliving #intentionalliving #simpleliving #simplicity #livingonabudget #nospendchallenge #decoratingonabudget #frugaldecor #momlife #debtfreeliving #debtfreecommunity #momlife #domesticengineer #decluttering #usewhatyouhave

We have a birthday boy in the house early next week! He is the sweetest! When I asked him what he wanted for his birthday, he said, "can you buy me some nutella. I miss it." I stopped buying it when I started #grocerybudgeting, because it's expensive compared to peanut butter. I know many of you need to follow a strict budget. I TOTALLY understand. But, I also know that #abalancedapproach is important to #longtermsuccess. For me, extremes are my downfall. Treats along the way; little rewards here and there, keep me from giving up totally. And what I know to be true about human nature is THIS: starvation in one area leads to binging somewhere else. Maybe, you'll think you DESERVE that restaurant meal. Or, you DESERVE that new dress. Both are more expensive than a jar of nutella. Right? So, when I went grocery shopping last night, nutella was on the #grocerylist! My kids are learning from my actions. I need to model the healthy approach I wish them to have. I bought a 2-pack, 'cause...you know...he MAY need to share.😒😒😜 #keepitreal #momlife #feedingteens #noperfection #nocomparison #frugalliving #menuplanning #youdoyou #simpleliving #intentionalliving #intentionalchoices #domesticengineer #simplicity #lovewhatyoueat #feedyourmind #intuitiveeating #eatingdisorderrecovery #nonegativethoughts

A RAW Picture brought to you by Detective McSneaky. ( @dsteve92 ) 🕵🏾‍♂️😫😂 After I saw the terror in the picture, I saw the beauty in it, the reality in it, my truth in it... Why do we run from our truth to paint/ post a “prettier picture” ?? I know that’s what social media is ALL about, getting dressed in your flyest clothes and pretend that is your everyday life, happy and beautiful as can be!! Although this may be the truth for some, it’s not for Jessica Stevenson! I’m a stay at home mom, running a home (of 9) and a business. This is me 70% of the time(sometimes 90% of the time lol). The Busy bee that doesn’t have much time to get out of gym clothes or put some make up on.. sometimes I wish it was different.. then I speak to some of my friends who’s job’s require them to be beautifully ON 99% of the time and they are just as stressed out as I am! 🤷🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️ All they want is to put some dang sweats on and chill! I say that to say this: Don’t stress yourself trying to make yourself something your not able to be at that time, do the best that you can at whatever it is that your doing, look the best you can with the time that you have. Whether you are a stay at home mom such as myself that’s in sweats and a bun all day, a beautiful model that’s in lashes, wigs and heels 23 hours of the day, my corporate America beauties in suits & pumps, or my girls in the med field that live in their scrubs! Whatever it is your doing, Embrace it bc this moment won’t last forever. ❤️🙏🏽 #powerintruth #beautylaysintheeyesofthebeholder #blessed #grateful #momager #mompreneur #barber #futurephotographer #domesticengineer #multitasking #mommyduties #sippycups & #coffeecup #gymclothes #messyhair #womenempowerment #awomanstruth #IThinkImReadyForADesk 😂

Short on time? Try this 9 minute HIIT work out that will guarantee results! Exercise: Plyo lunge to squats Power knee Burpees (push up is optional) Perform each exercise for 30 seconds with no break. Rest for 30, and repeat the round for 3 total rounds. Bonus abdominal move: oblique single-double pull w/ sliders Do this move for 1 minute after each round for an extra burn! 🔥🙌🏼🔥🙌🏼🔥🙌🏼🔥🙌🏼🔥🙌🏼🔥🙌🏼🔥🙌🏼🔥 . . #weightloss   #SAHM #domesticengineer # #eatingdisorder #strongmom #momlife #cesarean #mixedkids #healthy #girlswholift   #workoutideas #peanutbutterlover #weightlosstips #muscle #fitness #beforeandafter #shrinkabooty #motivation #transformation #militarywife #airforce #runner #run #esthetitian #carblover #foodlover

Maybe you actually read what people write on their IG posts, or perhaps you just swipe to see pics. If you’re one of the few reading this, here’s an example of behind the scenes of a social media highlight reel. “Look at these plate-size lettuce leaves we grew indoors”, behind the scenes- burned the sweet potatoes and POT that were intended for these pretty leaves, while trying to steam them on the stove (oops) and look at my little one’s creepy dolls staring down the hall that nearly scared me half to death this morning! 😆 #momlife #domesticengineer #keepinitreal #ineedanap #oregonlife

Its my first Friday introductions! . So without further ado... . This is a Snapchat selfie of me on my 55 birthday (this last January) Anyone out there in IG land still use Snapchat? 👻 . Anyway... . ....A few things about me that may or may not be interesting to help you get to know me a tad bit better.... . I grew up on the west coast. In Malibu... back when it was just a beach town and you didn't have to be a gazillionaire to live there...I didn't know how lucky I was. Then...Seattle... . I love Seattle but while I lived there I struggled with the rain. And I got toatally addicted to tanning beds. Bad. Bad. Bad. . I love to shop. It doesn't matter if it's a funky old thrift shop or a big shiney mall. And how lucky am I?! My husband likes to shop too! 😁😁😁 #solucky . Ok.. a few more... . I love to travel but I hate to fly....I prefer silver over gold. I am an avid Netflix binger and I would rather be barefoot. . So random... . I have a green thumb...I have two tattoos ( one of which is currently being removed) and last but not least.... . I think there may be a chance that I'm not actually a natural blonde. (Shhhh!) Lol. . . Now you! Tell me something random about you. I really do want to know. 😁 . #fridayintroductions #tgif #randomthingsaboutme #fiftyplus #fabulousfifties #thisiswhoiam at Phoenix, Arizona

Attempting to make everyone in your life happy is an impossible task. . Impossible meaning: it can’t be done. No way. No how. . So that being said...do what you love... love what you do... be honest and kind and true to yourself. . Live by what guides you, your true north, your foundation and what you know in your heart to be right. . Find your tribe and love them hard. Love them the best you can with all your strength. And PS: don’t take them for granted. 😊 . Just do your best. If everyday as your head hits the pillow you can say you did your best... then that is all you can do. . And your best my friends is more than enough. You are more than enough! And so am I. . Happy Thursday everyone! . #whitequote #doyourbest #beyou #elenorroosevelt #whocareswhatpeoplethink
