So today was most certainly hotter than yesterday. That aside I have beat myself up. Putting in the time and fasting has been great. Running on a 16-8 fast and working out everyday. I feel amazing!! It makes me wish I had more gym equipment at home. #homeworkout #sweaty #itshot #1stphorm #duespaid #nodaysoff
Leg day was...fun!? I enjoy finishing up a good leg day and just being jello. I was working out outside and using free weights. Its 90° with a humidity of good god! I got hot and sweaty. Just like ya should!! Now to figure out how I'm gonna do stairs and sit for the rest of the night...lol! #1stphorm #legday #hotmess #fun #silly #duespaid #iam1stphorm #everyday
Workin for it...everyday! Water, meals, workouts. Life happens and sometimes that shit sucks. But I get up dust myself off and put in the work. There are days where my workout is the only stress relief. So when my workout has me sweatin like crazy(like shit it got in my eyes crazy )I'm all for it. #1stphorm #lookatthatbutt #hotmess #duespaid #fitnessmotivation #mom
Hi. I have found myself being very introspective lately. I found myself evaluating my friendships. Noticing who I have to reach out to, and who reaches out to me. I find the friendships that I have very interesting. When they've come into my life, and how long they've continued to be there. I'm a very fun, very bubbly, very interesting person. I know a lot about a lot of things. The last 5 years have shown me people that have been in my life since I was a kid,and people that have been in my life since I was a teenager, even new friends that I've made as an adult and the effort that they put into our continued friendships. I found quarantine to be interesting. When you have to isolate yourself from other people you sort of find out who's going to be there for you, who's going to check in on you, who's going to talk to you, who you checked it on, and who you made time for. I think you also learn the whys behind it. I sort of feel like the next few months are going to be really interesting. Love you all! #friendship #love #timewellspent #everythingchanges
So my daughter did a thing yesterday. I am so elated for her. You couldn't wipe the smile from her face. I love that she is bold enough to live outside the box. She doesn't allow the people outside of her to determine her choices. She is strong, bold, and independent. Her sense of self is so strong, that she is a force to be reckoned with. Wear that crown Queen!! #momlove #strongwomen #queen #strength #bold #beautiful #whatbox
You've been my crinkle faced boy since the day you were born and I gave you your very first breath. As breathed your last in my arms I am crushed. You were such perfect soul. I am going to miss you so terribly my sweet Douglas. Rest easy now my flappy lipped guy.❤
Happy holiday's everyone. Enjoy your family time. Holidays can be hard on some who are missing family who has passed. This list grows for me every year as I get older. Family and friends gone too soon. Be sure to share love and great stories this holiday season. Hold friends and family close. Remind them they are loved. For those struggling with depression this holiday season. I can't in good conscience tell you to feel better. Just know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. just know that I am here. If you need to vent, you need a safe space, or you need a comfort zone, I'm here. I love you and don't give up. Tomorrow will be better than today. #kisses #hugs #love #youmatter #imhereforyou #imissyou #lightacandle
How do you wear sad? I think we all wear sad a little differently. Some talk through it... some Drink through it... some work out through it... I smile through it. I remember the good and the fun of whatever is making me sad. Yes I look at the silver lining of things. The sad moment won't break me. It hasn't broken me yet. I will always love you anyway.
It's Friday!! Taking pictures in my downtime. Gets me thinking about what different people think is beautiful. Does beauty have to be nude, or baring? Can beautiful just be a smile or a moment? Is it able to be a feeling? Let me know what you see or share as beauty or beautiful. #beauty #beautiful #normal #thoughts #share #dontbeafraid #weareallbeautiful #youarebeautiful #realtalk
No filter, just a dirty camera and some sunglare! 😄 I noticed I hadn't posted a picture in a while. I just had a conversation with another mom today and realized that she didn't have any pictures of herself. Everything she had was pictures of her with her kids. I noticed that aside from my Insta pictures, every picture I have from my life is just my family. I'm the one taking the picture. ************************************* I was thinking about that moment when people are planning a funeral service. They begin looking for a picture of the deceased. That leads to looking through old photo albums and stacks of unorganized pictures and those in frames. Learning about family you never knew about or met. Learning about moments your parents and family had before you came into the world or when you were too young to remember. Hearing all those funny stories about that barbeque, or the family trip to wherever. *************************************All those moments that have been captured to save a snippet of time. To hold on to that small moment. To capture all those emotions and save them. To be able to go back years later and remember that snippet of time that may be long lasting or maybe just a fleeting moment. ************************************* Why is it that those moments only come when someone has passed away. The nezt time you visit your Grandparents, ask if they have a photo album. Share that moment. Learn about when their marriage was new, the family trips they took with your parent, the family pets. Share that moment now. Enjoy their stories. Hugs and love guys! 💋 💋 💋 Have a great day! #momlife #lovethosekiddos #muah #pretty #takethatpicturelady #funtimes
I love the slight changes in the pinks and purples we got in this mornings sunrise. So beautiful. @emma ._.boss and I enjoyed this view this morning.
Look at these beautiful puffy clouds. The kids and I were just appreciating them... Thought I'd share the beauty. Have a great day guys!
This girls lights up my heart! Her Quinceañera was so beautiful. She spent her evening wearing smiles like this. I love you darling. I hope your day was all you've dreamed of and more! @emma ._.boss
So this little sugar pie just started the second grade. I'm saddened by the choices of the school district that she attends and handling her as a transgender child. My daughter is beautiful, amazing, sweet, kind, and generous amongst many many other things. I, as a person believe in equality, whether it be amongst genders, races, Etc. I have taught my daughter to be comfortable and confident in who she is. The current policy for her school district does not allow for her to use the girls restroom and this saddens me. I have had to have meetings and calls with the Super intendant about the policies that this district has in place. I've had to talk with him about how they do not comply with my daughter's rights and how they do not comply with laws that are currently in place to protect transgender people. The fact that my daughter is being segregated into a different bathroom and being shown to the students that she goes to school with that she is different instead of being accepted in my eyes is disgusting. I will fight for her and I will continue to fight for other people just like her. I'm saddened that they're treating her like she's not girl enough to use a girls restroom and saddened that they're showing the other students that she's different and not allowing her to be treated just as fairly and equally as the other girls in her class. I will not tolerate it. #beanally #trans #transgender #transgirl #lovemydaughter #ifightforyou #love #onlylightcandriveoutdarkness #lovewhoyouare
Just a loungin kind of day. Sometimes you just gotta give yourself a break. Some days require that you don't push yourself. Sometimes you just gotta reset. It's okay to just read that book, or finish that puzzel. There is nothing wrong with not getting that checklist done right away. I think we put so much pressure on ourselves to be better, or be successful, or just be more than yesterday that we forget to just let lose or just relax. Today is that break for me. I've been enjoying games of Connect4 and Boggle. The kids have a bowl of popcorn and we are just playing a good old-fashioned game of 20 Questions. Take some time, enjoy a day off once in a while. Take care of you. Love you!!
