Spent #Galentines day with my favorite little girls 💕 Though they just about drove me insane today! 🤦🏼♀️ They’re beyond excited for #Valentines Day tomorrow and even more thrilled because Daddy comes home from deployment THIS WEEKEND! 🙌🏻 Side note: lollipops at Disney are the easiest way to keep littles entertained 🤣

They look so sweet and innocent don’t they?! Just moments after taking this photo I knew that pain in my lower back was a lovely kidney stone. Something I have had the pleasure of dealing with quite a bit over the last 5+ years.
I was home alone with the girls so I acted fast and asked my mom to come over. I figured I could manage until she arrived but this episode was a bad one and came on so quick. I sent a message to two of my neighbors to come help with the girls for just twenty minutes but that didn’t work out.
That big sister stepped up to help her mama by getting the garbage can for me to do you know what in while I sat on the heating pad on the couch. I assured her I was fine and grandma was coming. Then being the awesome big sister that she is, she just kept telling Rose, “mamas okay”. Your kids will definitely surprise you when you need them most. There must be something they can sense. I’m so glad that stubborn strong willed girl, who had been giving me a hard time all morning, came to my rescue. All I wanted in that moment was for my girls to be safe.
If you’ve never had kidney stones, it’s pretty much like giving birth but you don’t get a precious gift at the end. I actually can’t decide which is worse!
All my pain was gone today and we were back to our normal shenanigans!
Can you spy the pup in the 3rd pic? 🕵️♀️ Feeing pretty good this Saturday morning. I’ve been doing a cleanse the past few days (not to loose weight) and today is my last day!
My goal? Cut out sugar & processed foods and reduce my bloating. Sugar is my enemy- I am usually defenseless when it comes to that! Not anymore ❌
People ask me from time to time why I coach on top of being a full time working mommy...and the answer for me is simple...coaching fills a part of my cup that other endeavors don’t.
What’s filling your cup?!

Flashback to this morning when Peyton woke up early to watch me workout. Instead of jumping in on the workout, she was coaching me from the sidelines. 🥰

Death by Shaun-A-Thon 60 minutes of cardio. Can’t believe I will have finished transform 20 tomorrow so crazy. In the last year I have lost 65-70lbs. Such a crazy year and I am happy to have a husband who has supported me through this journey 110%. My oldest watched me do the last 20 minutes of the work out and said she was proud! Setting an example for her is soo important to me that is what got me started on this journey to start. @shaunt@transform_20#momoftwogirls#workingouthard#igotthis#settinganexampleformykids

Don’t ruin this weekend what you worked so hard for this week.
I used to be one who when Friday night would roll around I would check out of cooking for my family and I would pick up take out or we would go out to dinner! It was easy. After all, I ate clean ALL week! I DESERVED to treat myself! Problem was, it didn’t stop with the one treat. It went on to breakfast with biscuits and gravy then on to a quick lunch while out shopping of a drive through cheeseburger, coke and fries, to hey lets meet up with some friends for dinner....and then guess what? Yup, it would repeat to Sunday....brunch after church, then usually a quick easy meal on Sunday night because after all, I had to go back to work the next day and didn’t want to mess with cooking.
It wasn’t until I committed to eating clean all the time that I started seeing results. Does that mean I don’t treat myself to a brownie or a good juicy cheeseburger?! Heck no! I LOVE desserts and grease...but I’ve learned to do it now in moderation. I do not feel deprived EVER and I still eat A LOT of food!

I want to gift you with something ... a "oh her, too!" moment as I like to call them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All of us Mamas have a lot more in common than we let on. We hide our insecurities, put on a front, and hardly ever let on to having a hard time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For years, I hated my body. I hated the long lasting effects that pregnancy had on it. I felt isolated.... like I was the only one who had a body with stretch marks and extra skin. Until one day, I realized women all over this platform were sharing their real life bodies and not holding much back. They weren't ashamed to show off how their bodies changed and I suddenly felt normal. Something about these women sharing their stories helped me feel like I could learn to accept my own body. It was such a gift to realize I wasn't alone. It was a moment that I said to myself, "Oh her, too!" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've been accused (that sounds too harsh) of having a "perfect body." People see thin and immediately think I don't have any of my own insecurities ... but I have a bunch. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I don't want anyone to ever compare their body to mine... but I'm putting this out there that we aren't that much different. At times I struggle with body image, making healthy choices, and learning to accept my forever changed midsection. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We have so much in common. Let's unite in that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Double tap if you're with me! 👊 Tag a Mama who needs a reminder that she's not the only one! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
P.S- I hope it's not lost as to how hard this was to post. It's hard to put your insecurities out there for the world to see but I'm hoping that this resonates with just one other Mama and helps her not to feel like she's the only one with a forever changed body like mine. We are strong in numbers.
You can do a lot in 21 days. (Swipe to see more than just my 3 week transformation)
I need 10 ladies to commit alongside me.

😍This girl right here AMAZED ME last night!!😍
She asked me this morning if I would wait to workout until this afternoon because she wanted to join me. I told her sure, but I really didn't think she would remember or want to.😜 WRONG!!! As soon as we got home from school pick up, sure enough she asked to work out so WE DID!!!
YALL!!! I honestly thought she would want to stop after 5 min or so. She proved me wrong!!! She did have to modify some, but she NEVER quit on herself!!! Let me also add that this was the new 20 minute ShaunT workout which is a challenging workout. She did her very best with the burpees, pushups, ab crunches, and the whole thing. I'm beyond PROUD of her for pushing herself...first complete workout with mommy was a SUCCESS!! 💪❤
Life happens FOR you, not TO you. And what’s exciting is you have 💯 the power to interpret any situation as you wish - either as good or bad.
Y’all know, or maybe you don’t, I wasn’t totally in love with becoming a SAHM. I love my girls, don’t get me wrong but I always thought I’d be a working mom. Period. So being laid off threw me off and threw me into a new role I wasn’t ready for.
I was scared to be honest with you. Im not the most patient woman in the world and I wanted to hold onto an identity beyond just a mom - as rewarding and appreciative as I am of it.
But being laid off provided me an opportunity to pursue something I never thought I could or would do. Becoming a health coach. It’s not for everyone, I get that / but for me it’s everything. Not only does it satisfy my want to still work and contribute in some way, but it has also pushed me to face the fears, insecurities and self doubts which have forever held me back. Making me the person I’ve always wanted to be. Strong, healthy, confident, successful, impactful, fantastic mother, patient (wip) and happy soul.
Every challenge, every mistake, every set back is your opportunity to learn, to grow and to find joy in new ways you otherwise didn’t see.
Sometimes life can feel like a continuation of blessings in disguise. It’s all about perspective and opening yourself up to receive.
