REAL LIFE MOTHERHOOD I am pulled 1000 different ways by so many people everyday. Today I was overwhelmed, exhausted, anxious and I found myself thinking the same thoughts I did a few years ago. Running away from it all. Mothering got the better of me today, I snapped multiple times in the last 24 hours, I’ve cried and just wished for it to get easier. The feeling of being so alone and lost is so debilitating and it feels like you’re drowning when we try to hold down the fought everyday, keep ourselves fed and give ourselves the same attention & care we do to our kids. Tomorrow is a new day. Thank you to the 23 other mums who reached out today to send love and ask how I was. That’s why I started this page ❤️

Ah yes, the ol' super boob! Do you have one side that totally kicks butt?⠀ ⠀ While milk production might not vary THIS much, research has found that it’s usually the right breast that is more productive in 7 out of 10 women!⠀ ⠀ In one study comparing milk output for the left and right breast, mothers were advised to pump both breasts at least 6-8 times a day. Milk output was higher for the right breast in 65.7% of the pump sessions!⠀ ⠀ 📸 - @legendairymilk

It's amazing how many times you can call your child's name with zero response, but just try any one of these and they're there within seconds!!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How many of you have hidden in the cupboard to sneak a cheeky piece of chocolate just so you don't have to share it with them? I know I have.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In fact, I've gone to great lengths of grabbing a bunch of grapes whilst chewing on a piece of chocolate so that when the kids ask me what's in my mouth, I point to the grapes in my hand!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Oh the extent we'll (or should I say I'll) go to!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Any more to add to this list to get your kids' attention?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mumlifequotes #motherhoodquotes #mommyproblems #mumquotes #realmomlife #sydneymums #thisismotherhood #raisingkids #australianmums #honestmum #mumsofaustralia #mumssupportingmums #lifewithkids #lifeasmama #stayathomemommy #mamahoodinsquares #realmotherhood #funnyquotes #parenting #parenthood #sydneymumsandkids #mumsofsydney #ourmamalife #lifewithlittles #funnyquotesdaily #honestlymothering #motherquotes #funnymum #momproblems

When I started this 'insta blog' it was all about exercising to keep my mental health in check and whilst it's now transformed into a family blog, I feel that keeping yourself in check is still part of what keeps your family ticking and for me, that meant keeping up the exercise, which I've done for over a year now! . . I don't know about you, but the winter always dulls my mood and especially the lead up to Christmas which is fun but can also be stressful. I've been feeling it recently and been less motivated, so I've devised a plan to tackle it and to keep myself happy for mine and my families sake. Yesterday was 65 days until Christmas. I decided that for 55 of these days, I will exercise and eat well. This means that 10 of these days will be rest days, at my choosing! Its not about being hard on yourself or stressing out about it, it's just my idea to try and get through, what can be a difficult period. Obviously winter doesn't end there so I'll come up with something else beyond Christmas! If winter also bites you in the arse, I'd love to have some buddies so let me know if you'll be joining me in saving yourself from going #crackersatchristmas we can tick off the days together! ❤️ . . . . #kidsofinstagram #toddlersofinstagram #parenthood #parentsofinstagram #selfcare #momsofinstagram #mumsofinstagramuk #instamums #instablogger #realmotherhood #myfitnesspal #TuesdayMotivation #motivated #buddiesthatblog

Just because you haven't hit that goal yet doesn't mean you are stagnant. When you think you’ve made no progress. Realize that every day is progress. Love your journey. Love your imperfections. Love you. And know that change, evolution, and progress is ok. . credit : @studioartyoga #transformationtuesdays #tuesdaytransformation #yogamom #yogamama #fitmama #fitmomsofig #fitmomlife #yogafit #transformations #beforeandafter #babybelly #thenandnow #honestmotherhood #realmotherhood #postpartumweightloss #postpartumbody #postpartumfitness #myyogalife #weightlosstransformations #yogamum #myweightlossjourney #myweightloss #postbaby #40weekspregnant #eyebrowshaping #ainesisfitness

The weather has finally started to warm back up again, and to celebrate we had a picnic and watched Toy Story 4 in our backyard 😊 always trying to make special memories with the boys, even if it's just at home.

Almost 9 months in, and our breastfeeding journey continues. It's been easy. Well, no, it's been hard. It's been easier than the first time, with my son. This little one grabbed the breast as soon as she was out of the womb and latched, and drank, and grew. She was on top of it all. My milk flowed, I had no supply issues, no mastitis, a massive right boob and lots to share. So no complaints. I should not complain because many women would have liked it to be as easy. "And you should be grateful", they say. So I try not to tell too many people that I am tired, and that my body aches. My baby is happy and healthy, I should just be happy and not think about how painful my back feels right now. Nights are rough. Short sleep cycles, and feeding feeding feeding. I sit in the dark on the couch, my head is heavy, my shoulders are sore. How heavy are you, little one? We can only hear your sucking in the quiet house. When I try to pull you off me to go back to my beloved bed, you scream. Alright, more food, then. And all we hear is your suck. I am cold. Why is the heater off? I try to make myself more comfortable. Maybe I could check Facebook or Pinterest to help me stay awake? But I know it's no good. That light prevents you to go to sleep afterwards. And that's not what I want either. So I wait, and fight all the thoughts that could wake my brain too much. Awake enough to hold you safe, sleepy enough to go back to bed. I hear my husband rolling in bed. He is struggling to go back to sleep too. But he is under the warm blankets, and I wish I had one right here. I lay in bed, and after a minute or so, you call again. How many times last night? I have no idea. I get out in the cold, put some warm socks on, a big jumper, and go back to the couch. That is where I spend my nights these days. I wake in the morning feeling like I am walking in wool. My moves are slower, my brain is foggy. You smile, and it makes me happy. You want more food. It's 7am. The whole cycle can start all over again. #breastfeeding #breastisbest #breastfeedingmom #realmotherhood #melbournephotographer #melbournenewbornphotographer

Baby Nolan 💙 Soms wou ik dat je al kon praten. Dat je ons kon vertellen waar je pijn hebt of last van hebt. Je kan zo intens huilen dat we soms vraagtekens hebben of we alles wel goed doen. Gelukkig hebben de artsen niet iets ernstigs bij je kunnen ontdekken en zullen we saampjes moeten ondervinden wat voor jou werkt en wat niet. Want als je lekker in je velletje zit ben je het lachebekkie in huis. Je grote zus zorgt maar al te graag voor je en dealt er maar mooi mee dat veel aandacht nu naar jou gaat. Deze post durfde ik mede dankzij @natalievijfhuizen te plaatsen. Zij deelde haar oprechte verhaal. Het is gewoon niet altijd makkelijk, je twijfelt soms aan jezelf; ook al heb je al grotere kids. De moed zakt je soms te letterlijk in je schoenen en de automatische piloot houdt je op de been. Baby Nolan, onze lieve kleine mannie man, we houden van je. Onvoorwaardelijk. De tijd zal het leren... #babyboy #babynolan #huilen #kleineliefde #mamazijn #opvoedenisnietaltijdmakkelijk #awereness #realmotherhood #reallife #family #blueeyes #verlof #opvoeden #staypositive

@littlelarey

Is there anything cuter than an almost two year old (next week 😭) in a bathrobe and slippers? The answer is no. Also, at least our bathroom looks fancy, even if I’m forever wearing yoga pants and an unironed top. Which is also how you can tell this shot wasn’t staged, and that I don’t aspire to be an influencer because I obviously should’ve worn a fancy dress and pretend that’s just how I roll at 7am as a mom of two kids 💁🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️. Anyway, I still feel like I’ve stepped into a hotel bathroom every time I enter this one 🛁 #topofthemorningtoya ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #lucandlarey #motherhoodunplugged #aintnohoodlikemotherhood #boymama #thingsiwanttoremember #candidkids #toddlerlife #childhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #bathroomgoals #motherhoodinspired #candidchildhood #realmotherhood #childhoodmemories

@hayle3

I had to laugh in conversation the other night how causally Patrick described our family, me wanting to free fall off cliffs, Atlas following behind wielding a knife and himself frantically trying to ensure that safety harnesses are plentiful 😂 Far out I am grateful for the balance that this guy brings to our life and his willingness to work his way off the ledge with us. We are making some huge moves next year that are pushing us all out of our comfort zone, but especially him and here he is doing what we knows best, bringing calm to Atlas and my wild souls xx

@the.mumsword

The hardest job in the world. . Follow @alexandrasacksmd and @helenetheillustrator! ・ "When some women think about allowing themselves to be “human,” they feel a sudden panic that they will slide into behaviors of selfish or “bad” motherhood. But, you have to trust that if you love your baby, you won’t just stop caring for him, love will win when you just go with the natural flow. New motherhood is also a good opportunity to reflect on what may be a lifelong pattern of critical perfectionism. I’m here to tell you: perfection is an impossible goal; it’s not possible in any job or human relationship, and it’s certainly not possible in parenting. Rather than spending time judging yourself and wondering if you’re getting an “A” at parenting, try to aim for compassion and authenticity when you’re with your baby. That compassionate and authentic parent is the person your baby is going to love, and the model that your child will learn from as she grows up. Since motherhood is such a hard job, we’re all going to fail at it sometimes. But to be good enough, all you have to do is to brush yourself off and try again. It’s your effort and caring that your children can feel and need most. Trust me: they need the hugs (and the dinner, and the bath, and the shared giggles) and they’re not grading you on the quality of your performance. Besides, that perfect mother isn’t a healthy model for them either, because she’s so self-depriving. Would you want your own child to learn that neglecting her basic needs in the context of a relationship is something to strive for? Sometimes you have to put yourself first — and you should. Self care is not selfish — it’s simply a requirement for psychological (and physical) survival. There may be times you have to go to the bathroom and leave your baby crying for a few minutes in her crib. As soon you pick her up and hug her, she’ll forgive you. I encourage you to also try to forgive yourself."⠀ • #momtruths #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodunfiltered #themumsword #realmoms #motherhoodmentalhealth #mommyconfessions #motherhoodishard #realmotherhood #lifeasamama #mommystatus #motherhoodjourney #mommymode #motherhoodrising

• B E A C H • We took a risk not bringing the buggy yesterday and Elsie surprised us walking for miles. Sometimes I forget she is only 18 months old as she is so independent. We ended the day on the beach with a double scoop ice cream that was meant to be shared but she ate the entire thing to herself 😳 - beach days are not just for summer! . .

@mayden_blossoms

You matter too! I finally feel myself! For the first time in 2 weeks I felt like having my hair and makeup and actually wearing something that makes me feel good rather than quickly becoming usual old tshirts and joggers. For the first time in 2 weeks(sick toddler than sick baby, than sick toddler and baby🙈) I feel like I'm not just a mom but I'm also a person with needs, wants and dreams! And whilst my world evolves around my two little monsters I too deserve to have a bit of me for myself. Tiredness and exhaustion transpire on many different levels! It can be just physical or emotional and mental, it can be a combination of all three! We all know that we can be masters of disguise when it comes to pretending to be ok when in fact we are not. Don't try to cover up that you are tired, no make up can heal your soul! #soulsearching #innerhealing Physical exhaustion is one thing, but mental strain and emotional drain is totally different! #mentalhealth Look after yourself and your health! Be honest with yourself! You are your own best friend so have an honest look in the mirror, ask yourself are you ok?! #itsoknottobeok Its one thing to see the left overs from last weeks makeup because you were too busy to wash your face for a while...(happens to every mama😭😊😂) and it's a completely different thing to be covering up with fresh layer of concealer your inner exhaustion and inner struggle. Nice to be me again...let's see how long it lasts😭😂😘 . Floral sleeve jumper @hm & jeans @zara ❤ . . . #youmatter #mothershealth #lookgoodfeelgood #strongmama #momstyle #goodmorning

@rosephotoco

I will always try to get images of you with your baby, even if you don’t choose them, they are there for you. It’s so easy to forget to have photos with your babies- we want ones of them desperately but we don’t want to be in them ourselves (I am the same!). You may not look how you did a couple of years ago, you may not feel like yourself anymore either. Motherhood changes your body, your mindset, the amount of hours in your day. Remember though, THEIR mama is perfect in their eyes, beautiful, nurturing, protective and perfect. I can guarantee that they will want to look back and see you in photos.

Yesterday we had the most lovely day at @camelcreekadventurepark . We have been promising to go since August and have only just got round to going! The last place like this we went to was @altontowers which is just in its own league so once we stopped comparing to that we had an amazing day out. . The Halloween things were amazing and kept Lukas entertained. Calvin was at the perfect age for everything and was in his element... and Kieran takes after me and spent the entire day with a tummy ache and feeling car sick thanks so all the rides 😂🙈 . I would say definitely geared up more for little ones but all the same a fab family day out had by ya all ❤️ . So far we are bossing this half term 🙌🏾 . . . #halftermfun #cornwallfamilydayout #camelcreekadventurepark

@thisisyourmotherhood

I stumbled upon this much (MUCH!) needed ‘note from your post-baby body’ by @themummycoach.co.uk today, just moments after chatting with a group of new moms about the pressure to ‘bounce back’ after birth. From ‘when will you go back to work’ to ‘when do you get back your post baby body back’, there is a loud expectation of women to quickly return to their ‘old selves’ shortly after becoming mothers. And this societal pressure, to conform to a pre-defined idea of who you should be and what you should look and feel like after birth, is destructive. Pregnancy, birth and motherhood are life-altering experiences. They are pivotal points in a person’s life, which involve practical, physical and emotional change. We need to stop implying that women ‘get back their bodies’ (as if they lost them in the first place!) and start encouraging them to be kind with their bodies and patient with themselves, and ultimately to embrace change. Please share with the women in your life that need this kind reminder today! .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #postpartumbody #postbabybody #postbabybodyjourney #motherhood #realmotherhood #bekindtoyourbody #thisisyourmotherhood #themummycoach

Ne tik mamai ir tėčiui sunkiau suspėti padėti visiems ir pasirūpinti, bet ir patiems vaikams kyla daugiau iššūkių.

Būna, kad fiziškai nesuspėji sulakstyti pas tris, nors visiems juk tavęs reikia vienodai 🤐. Bet kad širdis tampa didesnė su kiekvienu šeimos nariu- TIESA⭐️. Ta meilė kažkokia magiška, nugali sunkias bėdas, nuovargį pamažina, o labiausiai- suteikia pilnatvę 😊. Tik aš tikiu, kad jei norime tą magišką meilę pajausti kitam, pirmiausia reikia pamilti ir save 🙏🏽❤️😌 #tikramotinyste . . . #motinyste #šeima #vaikai #gyvenimas #tevyste #lėtasgyvenimas #klaipeda #ruduo #motherhood #realmotherhood #family #slowlife #simplethings #simpleliving #together #mindfulness

I love the everyday rhythm of life, the miraculously normal days of coffee, errands, school pick-up, a random police situation, making dinner, writing a blog post...and blowing bubbles and kicking the ball on a beautiful night. At first we "made" the boys blow bubbles with Kate but now they do it voluntarily and seem to actually enjoy it. And Kate has an impressive kick 🏃‍♀️. They say "these are the days" and I believe it.

I’m back up and running (6.5 miles on Friday, 5 miles on Saturday, and 4 miles today after work) and generally my runs feel good. My legs are feeling better each day I run and it didn’t take long to get back I’m my groove. But throughout the day I’ve still got a stiff neck from the accident. It’s not terrible, it’s just like the muscles are so tight in my shoulders and neck. . . Tonight I took some time with this sweet bottle and massaged it into my muscles; I used a heating pad, and did tons of stretching. Here’s to hoping this finally does the trick!

Took four kids to the park after dinner 🍁☀️🍂 I had all the feels remembering my childhood at the same wonderland where I used to imagine I was Cinderella in the pumpkin 🎃 carriage, a mouse 🐭 in the cheese 🧀, Rapunzel stuck in the castle 🏰 tower, and one of the old lady’s 👵🏻 children who lived in the shoe 👞. This playground is old, but it’s design really inspires the imagination — and the metal slides are the fastest (and steepest) around!! . Eli had to bounce after a few minutes to meet the surveyor about our new house and I survived chasing 3 littles while wearing Willow 💪🏻 . But more importantly I got them back in the car 🦸🏻‍♀️ I just had to football carry Easton while he screamed 🤣 But the older two listened really well and miss chicky babe slept snug as a bug the whole time. . . #beautifulfallday #momoffour #documentyourdays #4thtrimester #momentsinmotherhood #instamoms #mymotherhood #reallifemom #honestmotherhood #realmotherhood #ig_motherhood #acupofmotherhood #therealparenthood #sharetheeverymom #momlifeisthebestlife #letthembelittle #humansofjoy #worldoflittles #kidsofinstagram #littleandbrave #candidchildhood #childhoodunplugged

Just because we aren't posing and smiling at the camera doesn't mean love and heart aren't there. In fact I'd argue there's WAY more when everyone is relaxed having fun and enjoying playing together. When was the last time you truly PLAYED with your kids and spouse? Make time for it this weekend. It's the foundation to deep meaningful relationships. Bonus points if I come photograph you playing together. :) It's still possible to squeeze in a session before Thanksgiving.

A HORROR story for this Halloween a Season 🙀: “Around 2 months postpartum with my first child, I noticed a strange sensation — like there was something in my vagina. At its worst, I felt like something was going to fall out. With a mirror I could see that there was something bulging inside my vagina, and I could tell by touching it that it was my colon. I live abroad and don't have access to a pelvic floor PT, but I'm pretty sure it's ‘rectocele’ [a bulging of the front wall of the rectum into the back wall of the vagina.] I had heard of pelvic organ prolapse, but I didn't know it could happen after your first child. I felt cheated, angry, sad, defeated, helpless, scared for future pregnancies, and a bunch of other complex emotions. I'm now 6 months postpartum, and I've been trying different things to improve it as best I can myself. After trial and error, I've learned that my posture has the biggest effect on my symptoms. Bad posture puts more pressure on my internal organs and makes the prolapse worse. With good posture, my symptoms mostly go away. It's not much, but I feel more empowered knowing there's something I can do. I also felt mad that no one told me about all the stuff I shouldn't be doing in those first few months that I was definitely doing! Running, heavy lifting, baby-wearing for long periods of time . . . This might have been prevented if I had known how to protect my pelvic floor while it healed postpartum.” - R. ~ This true tale, and more like it, are what we are puzzling through on Stories right now. Why are so many of us still in the dark about pelvic floor issues, including prolapse? Why is it up to each of us to do all this detective work trying to figure out what, exactly, is happening with our postpartum bodies? How is this not standard postpartum care in the U.S. (oh wait, where do we even begin...)? Do you have a pelvic floor horror story? A great PT recommendation in your area?

I pulled the cord beside my bed and the fluorescent lights flickered off. . I heard the door opened and saw the nurse come in through the small opening of the curtains that divided the large, shared hospital room. . I could hear her asking how you were doing and how your pain level was. . You explained it was bad and asked for some medication to ease the pain. . And all at once I was taken back to my first labour and delivery. . It was hard. It was painful. And my recovery was long. I remember holding my newborn and being so scared. I remember being terrified to bring him home from the hospital. . Don't get me wrong, as I sat in the dark, holding our fourth son, I was also in pain, tired and sore but nothing like my first time as a mom. . So I said a prayer for you and all new moms. And the next day as you slowly walked out of the room, I smiled at you and silently whispered, it's going to be OK. You will be OK. . You might be scared at first, but things will get better. When you are exhausted in the night and your baby won't sleep, remember this... . You are amazing! You created a beautiful new life and you are one strong mama. . But also don't forget, it's OK to ask for help. It's OK to lean on others. You don't need to have it all together all the time. . Take it one day at a time or even one hour at a time. Take care of you so you can care for your sweet little one. . And know that no matter what, you were made to be his or her mama.

One more night. One more sleep then he is home. 🙌🏼 It’ll have only been 6 nights, and I know many a family who does more apart. . And In fact of the 3+yrs we dated, 💑 only 8months were spent in the same town. The rest was 6hr, 30hrs+, multiple provinces and countries and literally the other side of the world 🌎 apart with weeks and months in between visits. We know distance, but it’s been a while. . For the last 12yrs we’ve gotten quite used to being hip to hip and we like it that way. 😍 . This 6 day hunting trip was/is a big deal and I’m so glad he could go!! (But I’ll sure be glad to have him back 😉) . It’s “extra” adventures like these that are made possible with our online side gig turned biz income. 🏕 And on the flip side, it’s also made possible being hip to hip more often on the regular day to day. 👫And we plan to enjoy many more years of that. 💏 . Nearly everyone could use wiggle room in their monthly budget! What would you do with $500 extra each month?⤵️ . . . . . #marriagegoals #husbandandwifeforlife #husband_wife #outdoorfamily #huntingseason #choosejoy #christianmarriage #outfamcommunity #familytime #familyadventure #residualincome #joyinthejourney #realmotherhood #lifeasamama #motherhoodjourney #motherhoodrising #slowmotherhood #messy_motherhood #thingsiwanttoremember #rememberingthesedays .

When you think identity, what comes to mind? What is part of your identity? : : If you had asked me at: -age 10: being overweight -age 15: being overweight -age 20: married and discussed with my body so much so I wasn’t able to give myself openly to my husband -age 26: strong (in the Lord and my marriage) beautiful (my flaws make me, ME) joyful (I have 3 amazing kiddos who keep me laughing and on my toes), intentional (not settling for where I am but choosing to grind everyday to be better) willing (to be vulnerable in my journey and who I was and encourage all who want change, mental, physical, emotional) : : What helped me shift? Changing my thoughts. My inner “mean girl” those thoughts I had said to myself for so long starting to become me. Edwin would look at me and instead of assuming he was being a sweet husband adoring his wife I would assume what he was thinking. : : My thoughts no longer where just my thoughts I had myself convinced every bad look, every cross tone, every shut door, every friendship lost was because of my weight. : : Let me tell you, if this is you STOP right now. STOP dwelling there. STOP camping out there. STOP repeating those things to yourself. : : If your mind goes there stop right when you realize you’re there, yet again. Turn that “he won’t stop looking at me because I’m overweight” into “I am beautifully and wonderfully created” : : Girl, your thoughts, what you listen to (songs, podcasts, friends, yourself) that becomes your mantra. : : What will your mantra be, from now on?

Two of my favorite people in the whole wide world! @rev3lations_ and @jamielynnhowell are basically the people that keep me sane these days. My husband is my best friend and I couldn't imagine life without him. We've butted heads more often since the baby was born and we definitely have our moments. But doing life with his guy has been nothing short of amazing and his support for my dreams is unparalleled. Jamie is my sponsor and enrolled with Young Living but before that she was one of my very closest friends and my main mom friend. We were pregnant together and she gave birth three months and two days before I did. My mom journey has been made so much easier because of her support. Mushy post: End.

@thewellbalancedmama

mom confession...my daughter hit me today for the first time 😭 so as the type A person I am, I’ve spent most of the last 5 hours rethinking my reaction to the situation and how to handle it when it happens again. motherhood is hard ladies! you try so hard to do everything “right” (what does that even mean?!), and then you find yourself second guessing yourself and eating a cookie in bed contemplating your every life decision as a mama 🙈

@fiveforleys

I’m reminding myself that the goodness in my life should not be determined by my circumstances. I’m quick to let my heart control my mood. By doing this I am setting myself up for failure. Letting my emotions run the show is inevitably going to land me face first in the dirt because I already know that life isn't perfect. Why let the difficult moments, the sometimes overwhelming challenges or the hurtful words from others set the tone for my day? I have to tell myself every morning to choose joy and when I say this I do not mean the kind of joy that the heart feels. I mean the kind of joy that our minds feel. Our hearts can deceive. Past relationships and situations have proven this to be true for me. But the mind, now that is a powerful force to be reckoned with. Feed it with peace. Feed it with power. Feed it with prayer. I promise you, it will make ALL the difference. There is always something good, some days you just have to look harder for it. Choosing joy today and everyday.... even when it’s really, really hard. {Jeremiah 29:11}

Words I live by. Breathing new life into me daily. I push to improve day to day. I can not and will not focus on the negativity! I strive to make forward progress everyday and live to inspire other mommas to find the joys of this path through motherhood, life and body changes! I will not lie...IT IS HARD, IT IS ROUGH, THERE IS GOOD, THERE IS BAD. But always know this...IT IS 💯 worth everyday, every struggle, every push, every trial and error! Strong mommas are build by all things that take tremendous effort...NOT easy peasy lives of glamour! ❤️❤️❤️ . . #motherhoodishard #pushforward #momswhopushthemselves #realmotherhood #strongmom #oregonmom #pnwmomlife #wellnesscoach #inspiremoms #fitmominspire #momswhoinspire #eugeneoregon #happinessisthekey #happymom #happywife #happyfamily #joyinmotherhood #findyourhappy #choosehappy #choosetobethebestyou #be100 #itsyourlife

Going after your dreams can be scary.⁣ ⁣ But not going after your dreams can be boring, unfulfilling and you will always find yourself asking the question. “What if”.⁣ ⁣ Which path are you choosing to go down? ⁣ Because it is your choice, you know😉⁣ ⁣ Sometimes going after you dreams can be big and bold looking. Other times, going after your dreams can be the simple steps you take along with everything else you are doing in your every day life. ⁣ #fithealthyandfree #thislifewasmadetolive

@thegracefilledlife

It was a photo that my friend posted that was similar to this that changed my whole world. I was skeptical. I’d been a size 10-16 my whole life and was pushing the 16 after my 2nd daughter. I had tried everything and couldn’t stick with it. I was feeling so depressed and couldn’t get out of it. I knew I needed a change....so I said YES. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bottom line...I didn’t think it would work. After all, I had tried everything....but what I found out was I hadn’t tried the right thing for me yet. Fast forward to 6 months later....I was down 45 pounds and wearing a size 4. I did it through the holidays, birthday parties, celebrations....and I ate cake, drank wine, and had chocolate but I learned how to eat those things in moderation paired with 30 minutes of exercise a day. I learned how to eat well and also live life. It honestly still blows me away!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I often think....what if I had kept scrolling...stayed skeptical....and not taken the chance on something that I saw obviously worked for my friend? I don’t know where I’d be! Since then, I gained 60lbs with my 3rd baby and lost it all. I just gained 60lbs with my 4th baby and I’m about to embark on this final journey knowing with full confidence THIS WORKS. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stop scrolling. SAY YES. Join me for my next bootcamp. Take a chance on feeling the best you’ve ever felt. I’ve led over 300 women through these programs since I started and they get the same results according to their goals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My next bootcamp starts in just a few weeks. Stop your scroll and say “YES” below or fill out the link in my bio. YES!

I am weak. I am strong. . It can be so easy to look around and see how I’ve failed throughout my day. My eyes seem to highlight all the things I am not doing well. I am so good at telling myself what I am not. But thank God that His power is made perfect in my weakness + imperfections. . He meets me in those moments, the ones where I am on my knees with tears running down my face as the frustration boils. He sees my brokenness and comes to mold it back together with gold. With warm hands, He holds my face to the son, reminding me that in that very moment, His grace is sufficient. . In these moments, instead of highlighting all the ways we are weak, what if we invited God to be help us through the thing(s) we were struggling with and remind ourselves of what we are good at. We can see these times as opportunity to grow & allow Him to work through it with us. . It’s okay to have hard days. It’s okay to not have it all together. It’s okay to show weakness. For when I am weak, then I am strong. •II Corinthians 12:9-10• • • • #graceupongrace #godisfaithful #godisgoodallthetime #honestlymothering #motherhoodmoments #realmotherhood #myhonestmotherhood #inspirationdaily #dailyinspirations #withgodallthingsarepossible #toddlermomlife #momstrong #strongmoms #hispowermadeperfectinmyweakness #thankyoujesus #myweakness #godspower #thankfulfortoday #iamweak #butgod #minnesotasummer #boymomlife #graceandgratitude #gracealone #2corinthians

@movementmatters

Instead of criticizing other parents for their child’s behavior, offer support instead. Parents are learning too, and each child is different. So the next time you see someone struggling-offer support. We need more of that.

@msnicolesnyder

March 2016 ▫️ This was about the point in time something started shifting for me. ▫️ Jayce was almost 1, Ruby was a “maybe” and I had been home for 3 1/2 years at this point. This is when I started pitching ideas to Jason of different things (businesses) I could do while staying home. Something for me. ▫️ I had this itch to reclaim an identity I had lost. Honestly, staying home and being a mom with zero purpose as a woman, made me cringe and I was getting restless. ▫️ 11 months after this picture was taken, I started Rodan+Fields. There wasn’t a crazy cash incentive (like the $5,000+ bonus that’s there now) and free products on the table. I knew nothing about skincare and we didn’t have the money to risk to start up. ▫️ The business and products had a proven track record, that all worked and worked well. But was I willing to take a leap of faith on MYSELF, the only variable that hadn’t proven itself yet? Was I willing to have people judge me for this, not talk to me, and tell me no? ▫️ I was. ▫️ Since the day I started I’ve worked to prove those who said I couldn’t do it wrong while simultaneously proving to myself that I can as well. ▫️ I CAN be a kickass business woman, and a loving mom. I CAN be a leader, and also hold down a house. I CAN encourage and inspire others, and be an amazing wife. ▫️ Are you willing to take a risk on YOU? Would 2 paychecks before Christmas do some good? Or $5,000? Do you need a community, and you haven’t found it? Or do you just need something to call your own? ▫️ Don’t let others pigeon hole you into their expectation of you. Listen to your heart and where it’s trying to lead you, because y’all, that’s where happiness is found! ▫️ And if you ask me happiness is the truest measure of success!

@morganraedrury

This little girl is four months old today. FOUR FLIPPIN MONTHS have came and went already. Every day I love her more and while I’m looking forward to great nights of sleep, I still wish time would slow down. The innocence of a newborn. These little babes can do no wrong. She still loves eating and eats like the little queen she is. The cooing and “talking” is in full force; I swear she has tried to say both “mommy” and “daddy” (probably not but that’s what it sounded like, ok!!!). She can roll from her tummy to her back and can “scoot” in a circle. Her nighttime sleeping stretches range from 4 hours to 6 or 7 hours, but sometimes she just lies awake and kicks me. Big brothers still love her and are all wound real right around her finger. She weighs a *hefty* 12 lbs and really enjoys pulling my hair. Love you little baby girl. You are our favorite girl ever! ❤️

@mightymabel

Apparently, nothing brings out Mabel’s independent and headstrong nature more than her very own ice cream cone. The woman at the ice cream shop gifted Mabel her own ice cream cone this weekend. Mabel LOVED licking her very own ice cream cone. She was humorously possessive of her cone and wouldn’t let me help her at all. This photo shoot took place early in her ice cream eating adventure before there was more ice cream on her face than in her cone. Bless you, your sassy spirit, and your love of ice cream, Mabel. 🍦🤦‍♀️ (Swipe for the photo progression. 🥰)
