Student led conference at my guys school and I was so excited to get to spend some time seeing his progress over the past few months. He was so proud of his accomplishments and that made my mama heart super happy!! I’m so grateful for a job that gives me flexibility to drop everything and go be all about my boy! 💙
Sharing two episodes this week because I did none last week after the marathon. #slacker I know. The lack of routine after being so routine during training had me all sorts of off.... luckily I’m ready to crush the week (and stairs, and leg day) again.
In this episode I talk about 4 really strong similarities between marathons and grief and 1 very major difference (no it’s not the actual loss). I hope it helps anyone managing grief, challenges or marathon training to think in a way that supports their growth. Because in the deepest, darkest and hardest parts of adversity, is the door to evolving.

pro tip: matcha balls can make those moments way more bearable. Something I believe so strongly that I apparently packed enough matcha balls in my pockets to fuel ALL of Wave 3.
Me and my #1 #firstborn
She was my toughest pregnancy. First trimester, I dropped down to 98 pounds, couldn’t keep food or drinks down, severe case of hyperemesis, couldn’t stand the smell of anyone or anything, was a sophomore in college, and was extremely weak. I looked like Skeletor💀. Finally began to show towards the end of my second trimester. Was able to keep most of my food down.
Momentan geht es relativ ruhig auf meinem Profil zu. Das liegt zum einen daran, dass ich nicht wirklich dazu komme zu fotografieren & nicht viel bei uns passiert.
Unser Mädchen bekommt gerade viele Zähnchen hinter einander & die Nähte waren auch Mal besser .
Es ist auch schön weniger Zeit hier auf Instagram, oder generell am Handy zu verbringen.
Hier rennt mir nichts weg & ich kann die Zeit in viele andere Dinge investieren.
Ich bin gerade dabei meine Ernährung umzustellen & habe mir ganz viele tolle Rezepte ausgewählt. Außerdem möchte ich mich im Nähen Versuchen und habe etwas tolles ausprobiert. Dazu berichte ich euch aber mehr in einem anderen Posting .
Wie geht es euch, habt ihr die Feiertage gut überstanden.
Decided to open a personal page to follow and share life’s most precious moments with other mummy’s worldwide.🌼 As a new mum, in a small, narrow minded society (where we live anyway) it seems to be morally acceptable to have been removed from people’s social media after having a child.
Now my posts aren’t prim and proper and my hair isn’t “on point” nobody cares.
I’m proud that on 26th August 2018 I gave birth to a cheeky little monkey who we named Nola-Rose.
The fact that I am her potential greatest influence in just mind boggling. I mean when you have only ever been you and now I’m an “we” .... it’s a huge pressure to succeed to be the best mummy I can be 💛 #mummydiaries#mumblog#newmummy#newmummyblogger#breastfeeding#motherdaughter
The choice to become a mother is the choice to become one of the greatest spiritual teachers there is . #motherhood#motherdaughter
A escolha de se tornar mãe é a escolha de se tornar um dos maiores mestres espirituais que existe.

3 generations of strong women. I read this quote today and it spoke right to my heart
“I want you to know that when I’m successful, when I feel good about myself, when I overcome something that is daunting to me, when I dream big and then dream bigger, it’s because I feel your strength inside of me. When I look into my own eyes, I see you looking back at me with love. I’m so happy and thankful to be myself in this world. And I want you to know that I see all you had to sacrifice, all the things you had to do, so I could become me. And I realize that I wouldn’t be me if you hadn’t been you. I want you to always know I love you, and I’m so grateful you’re my mom.” - @emilymcdowell_
✨ The past few weeks I’ve let my anxiety take control. I let the negativity set in and tell me all the lies. I made all the excuses not to work out.
I’m done. It happened and it’s over with, I’m not going to keep beating myself up over those few weeks and turn it into months. I will not.
I was eating good but I wouldn’t workout, or I would workout and not eat good, then I would not do any of it but have my shake. NO.
I’m on my routine now, I’m doing it all. It’s the consistency that’s works and that’s what I need! Not just for my body, but mentally I need it to keep going! I need to be the best I can be... for her! For my family! I know how I feel when I’m consistent in all aspects of my life and routine. It does wonders for my mind and my family.
THATS WHY I KEEP GOING! 💪🏻🧠👨👩👧🐶🐢✨
Despite all the hardships, you persisted, you endured, you never quit, you persevered, you kept going, you never gave up, you prevailed. I’m so proud of you!✨💞

My gosh there are so many things I wish I’d been told.
* that whatever people say no one has it figured out. * that I should have respected my body more and waited longer to try and get my body back. * I would be ok and it would be ok to tell people when I was finding it hard. I had no one to impress and anyone who judged me should have fucked off out of my life. * I should have learnt to say NO, I didn’t need to accommodate my life for everyone else. I didn’t need to go to the pub, I didn’t need to meet my friends constantly. I could have spoken up and organized different activities.
* people always have perfect advice about what they’d do but they don’t do it themselves.
* that I wouldn’t bounce back and that is ok because Instagram only shows the ‘perfect and fake!’ * that it is OKAY if you’re child doesn’t sleep through.
* that people will leave your life, even if you don’t want them to because they don’t understand how it’s changed and that’s ok. * that it’s shit to have a hangover and a child 😂 * that toddlers are not as fascinating as babies and people quickly lose interest.
* that you could despise the words ‘well behaved baby’ so bloody much! .
