  • “Most important lesson I’ve learned in 3 weeks back to work: you won’t be good at everything every day. Some days I’m really good at being a mom, other days I’m really good at work. Some days I’m really good running my household, and some days I’m really good with self-care. But everything everyday? Nah.” — Karen // @karen

  • There was once a time when my soul felt so broken and my heart was numb. As corny as it sounds, LOVE is what ultimately saved me. My family and their unconditional love for me is what pushes me to want to do and be better. Not only do they deserve the best of me, but I finally realize that I deserve it too. I don’t think my job as a mother is to save my kids, but to be an example and show them how to save themselves. 💕
.
In our home, feelings are always acknowledged, processed and shared. My kids have no problem telling us when they’re frustrated, mad, sad or full of joy. Our goal is to create happy and resilient human beings with pure hearts. Out of all the accomplishments I’ll have in my lifetime (and I have a huge list of goals I still want to and will achieve), being a wife and mother will always be my greatest ones. #wangtas #wangsworld #blessedwiththebest

  • おはようございます🌞
仕事前に保育園の誕生日会へ向かいこれから仕事へ。
昨日が休みだった分、今週もバタバタと
1週間が終わりそうな予感💭

娘の保育園行事は基本全部出席派。
来週に展示会を控え仕事が忙しい時期ではありますが
どんなに自分が大変だろうと、
娘のこととなると すべてやり切らないと気が済まない私。

保育園で過ごしている娘を見ると
家では気づけない成長に
顔も自然と微笑み胸が熱くなります!
お世話になっている先生たちに感謝して、、.
さ!今日もママは仕事頑張ります💪🏼🔥🔥

  • Ich wollte immer mindestens 3 Kinder und möglichst viel #Familienzeit 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦. Als David noch klein war, habe ich täglich von 8-12 Uhr gearbeitet, er kam erst mit 3,5 Jahren halbtags in den #Kindergarten . Mit dem 2. Kind kam dann alles doch etwas anders. Als Mijo 2 war, bin ich bereits Vollzeit arbeiten gegangen, weil es anders nicht ging. Kurz darauf habe ich mich selbstständig gemacht, anfangs noch nebenberuflich, und war somit auch am Wochenende immer sehr eingespannt. Ich hab zwar jederzeit versucht meine Tagesabläufe so zu planen, dass ich trotzdem so viel Zeit wie möglich für die #Familie hatte, aber insgesamt hatte Mijo einfach weniger #Mamazeit als David damals. So ist es sicher oft beim 2., meist geht es auch nicht anders, aber ich möchte ihm jetzt, wo ich es organisieren kann, wieder mehr von dieser Zeit geben. Gerade weil er sehr aktiv und fordernd ist und ich merke, dass täglich 8 Stunden Kindergarten zu viel sind. Mir ist es wichtig, dass er regelmäßig unter Kindern ist, aber eben auch, dass er so viel Zeit wie möglich mit nahen Bezugspersonen verbringt. Somit werde ich ihn so oft es geht früher abholen und auch öfter mal einen kindergartenfreien Tag einbauen. Das Mehr an Zeit möchte ich mit ihm aber auch so nutzen, dass er viel daraus mitnimmt und ihn nicht einfach irgendwie beschäftigen. Bedarf jetzt alles etwas Umstrukturierung und Planung, ich werde künftig noch mehr abends arbeiten, aber ich freue mich drauf 👩‍👦. Zusätzlich überlegen wir gerade gemeinsam, in welchem Verein wir ihn anmelden könnten und werden uns die Tage einiges anschauen. Was machen eure #Kids denn so in der Freizeit? Mir schweben gerade Fußball und Turnen vor, aber vielleicht finde ich ja hier noch etwas Inspiration ☺️

I thought I could outwork my bad nutrition.

I thought I could simply fake it till I made it.
I was too busy to meal prep.

Was it easy for me?! No. 
I struggled. I did sip some wine 🍷 cuz that IS allowed in our nutrition plan #thankyoujesus

As I showed up & completed each workout, I noticed muscle definition. I noticed I did not feel the need to run after my workouts. I noticed my pants started to not feel snug. 
Y’all I am here to say that after 💯 days?! After 💯 days of committing to a new way of life?! The way of life that saved me 4 years ago?
Man alive I did not loose a single pound but I lost inches off my belly and 2 inches of my back legs and I 𝑭𝑬𝑬𝑳 𝑾𝑶𝑾𝑻𝑨𝑺𝑻𝑰𝑪!!!!!!

Y’all. I totally get that it is easier to NOT eat clean, healthy all the time and use our busy life as an excuse. Believe me I get that.
But now I fully understand that’s just an excuse. I have the time to take care of myself and my family. I just wasn’t being intentional. Eating like crap or eating healthy takes effort. The results you get will either make you feel like a rockstar or feel like crap 💩. Each one is a choice.

  • “She remembered who she was and the game changed” - Lalah Deliah

Being a wife and a mom is tough.  It’s easy to lose sight of your personal and professional goals outside of your family goals. Family is everything, but it’s important to fulfill your passion and find your purpose in life.  100% the most important job is raising tiny humans to become amazing adults who help make this world a better place, but it’s also important to feel as though you’re making this world a better place right now - not 20 years from now when your child is a doctor and saving lives or doing some other incredible job. .
.
It’s almost like I woke up one day and decided to be me again.  Set goals and achieve them.  There’s no better feeling than setting a goal and achieving it.  No matter how big or small, or how ridiculous other people think it is.  It doesn’t matter what other people think.  Do You and follow God’s plan.  Stop trying to force things that aren’t meant to be, or hold back because of fear, or even worse, continue to do something that you hate or isn’t fulfilling or isn’t using your God given potential. .
.
Open your soul to the Universe and the Universe will help guide you.  The Universe is working for you, not against you.  The Universe wants you to succeed.  If you just follow the signs, you’ll end up@right where you’re meant to be. .
.
Remember who you are, what you stand for, and what’s important to you, and then wake up every damn day with a passion and a purpose.  With fire in your belly you can achieve anything. .
.
I’ve got that fire in my belly again and I’m ready to crush this real estate thing.  I can’t wait to help my friends, family, referrals, friends of friends, and people I haven’t met yet, with their real estate needs. .

  • Don’t hide in your shell 🐚 but let your light shine bright for everyone to see. I realise this is easier said than done but having done a lot of work on myself over the last four years, I know that it is possible. 💕

I wouldn’t be feeling this inner confidence and belief in myself if I hadn’t pushed myself to try new things and test the boundaries of my comfort zone. I wouldn’t be loving who I am and living my life with passion and purpose or come as far as I have in terms of my own self development and getting comfortable showing the real authentic me, if I hadn’t dropped my defences and my ego. Being vulnerable is scary but so worth it. 💖

Working on ourselves is hard and takes time and patience. Little baby steps everyday to a NEW YOU. I didn’t do anything special per se, life just threw me some curve balls and I chose to swim 🏊‍♀️ rather than sink. It wasn’t easy but I’m still here and STRONGER 💪 and WISER for it. 💗

For all of us, we can either RIDE the WAVES 🌊 or SINK with the SAND. Only WE can make that decision. 💜

What will YOU choose? 🧡

  • Asked my husband to take a photo of me..he takes the photo with super zoom on the iPhone and you gotta love the red eye I attempted to fix. #instagramhusbandfail 🤦🏻‍♀️💛 Also I look very protective over this wine probably because I have two toddlers sitting next to me throwing napkins at my head 🍷

  • Today was my son’s 6th birthday. From the time he was just a few weeks old I would read to him every night (Nancy Tillman being a fave. All the feels). Soaking in all the words, they could never fully express what being his mom means to me. #momsgetit

  • It all started with applesauce. The girls have asked for at least a month if we could make homemade applesauce like we used to do... like we used to do when I was just a mom, when they got all of my attention and we did more fun things. Mom guilt is savage and so quickly it all comes flooding in, but I told myself applesauce and a million other things are the trade off of chasing my own goals and dreams while raising a fourth baby. Juggling more things means I had to let go of others, like homemade applesauce and endless art projects.

Sunday, while I was doing school, the girls started peeling apples and making applesauce with Brett’s help. I took a break and pitched in.  Before long we were all working together and made jars and jars of applesauce. It started out like one more chore on my to-do list, but at some point I started to see glimpses of how it used to be. That night as I laid in bed scrolling through photos on my phone looking for a picture of puppies I saw the exploding volcano we made, rainbow waffles, lots of homemade food and so many fun memories. I realized how much I missed all of it, and that even with my school and their school and all the other responsibilities, I had to make space for the fun. That’s part of the legacy I want to leave as a mom, so today we made pumpkin pancakes and decorated jars of applesauce to deliver to neighbors. Tomorrow will be art projects, and I’ve vowed to recreate the exploding volcano with Wyatt this year. I’m thankful I was reminded of what’s important. I feel in some ways I survived all the hard things before Tuck’s birth and his pregnancy and first year. I survived my coaching program, and now I’m ready to pick up the pieces and find that mom again. It was more than ok to just survive those years, but I’m ready to thrive again. It may look like applesauce, but it was so much more.

  • Life is hard. Really fucking hard. Sometimes, it feels like all my buttons are being pushed and the world is moving in fast motion around me and I can’t catch up. 
I’ve been receiving a lot of messages about starting a workout program, or a new skincare, even sharing a meal plan. I have to be honest, none of that has been my priority. 
My priorities since having Brynnleigh have been trying to figure out our new life schedule, going to work to give the best service I can, making sure Brynn is gaining weight and healthy and on track, etc.
I thought I would want to work out right away and try and lose weight and get into great shape— but now it’s not. And if you’re that mom working out everyday with your babe—I envy you, even though I shouldn’t. 
When I come home after being gone for 10 hours, I just want to play and cuddle with my squish until she goes to bed. And in the few, small moments alone, I sit on my phone on the bathroom floor and look at pictures of her with tears in my eyes knowing that all this time is going by so fast, how do I be there for every moment? 
I love my life and sometimes I have to remember that’s what it is — MY LIFE. I’m happy with my 140lbs and squishy tummy. It’s true when people say ”your child doesn’t care what you look like” because every time those little hazel eyes look at me, I feel all the love in the entire universe. 💕 mom rant over, thanks for reading 🖤 #postpartum .

And in the few, small moments alone, I sit on my phone on the bathroom floor and look at pictures of her with tears in my eyes knowing that all this time is going by so fast, how do I be there for every moment?
    I love my life and sometimes I have to remember that’s what it is — MY LIFE. I’m happy with my 140lbs and squishy tummy. It’s true when people say ”your child doesn’t care what you look like” because every time those little hazel eyes look at me, I feel all the love in the entire universe. 💕 mom rant over, thanks for reading 🖤 #postpartum .

  • Sometimes, the proof is in the pictures.
.
If you still don't think home workouts for a busy mom work, look at these results, and I'm only half way through my program.
.
If you don't think you have the time, I'm a mom of three boys ages 3, 4 and 5 months old and I can still get results like this.
.
If you don't think you can afford it...it's less that a gym membership all day long and I don't have to worry about going out in the cold to drive for my workout, the judgement and strange looks as I get my post-baby body back and I don't need to worry about child care while I get it done. .
Results, not hassle.
.
I am starting a CLEAN WEEK challenge October 28th for anyone that wants to change their habits and learn about healthier choices! Tips, tricks, recipes, simple exercises all to get you started! 1 WEEK that's all it takes! Let me know if you want in on this group!!

Picture 1 -3 weeks pregnant with baby #3 and finishing my 2nd big challenge.
Picture 2 -The day before giving birth to baby #3...yep I was that big...gained 60lbs)
Picture 3 -Today, 5 months post-partum...rocking my goals

  • Hip strengthening workout with band. Try these out without the band first. Use a mirror to watch your alignment. Consult your doctor/physical therapist first. 😊
1. Squats - keep feet pointed out slightly and make sure your knees are aligned with your feet. 
2. Squats on BOSU ball 
3. Hamstring strengthening/hip extensors - make sure feet are pointed forward. 
4. Hip abductors strengthening - keep body straight vs leaning forward, stay strong on stance leg vs leaning to the side. Keep this controlled vs momentum and keep feet pointed forward. ITBand stretch in the end. 
5. Lunges - keep knees and feet aligned. Quad stretch in the end. 
6. Glutes - keep resistance on band by pushing thighs outwards. Hamstrings and glutes stretch in the end - lead and lean forward with your chest. 
7. More glutes work - 100 steps with resistance band

  • Папа может❗️
.
.
Так и да, наш папа может все❗️Мой муж @marksanockiy полностью заменяет меня пока я на роботе. Он научился:
✅разогревать молоко
✅делать каши
✅делать фруктовые/овощные пюре
✅менять памперсы
✅переодевать малыша(поверьте мужчинам это не так легко делать)
✅собирать ВСЕ на прогулку(включая сына) мин за 10
✅успокаивать сына
✅укладывать сына
✅чистить казЯвки сыну🙊
✅сам купает 
Этот список можно продолжать бесконечно, вообщем делать все, кроме #кормлениягрудью 🌸🌸 .
.
Уже дошло до того, что он мне даёт #советы как что делать сыну. 😬 Ну ничего, он все таки большую часть дня с ним. Почему так⁉️И работает ли он вообще ⁉️
На работе я 5 дней в неделю, в разные дни-разные часы роботы. Пока я на работе-муж с сыном, потом прихожу я домой-а муж на роботу. Если вы читали раньше пост #бабушкаАскольда ,то нам помогала свекровь, которая могла находиться на территории США только 6 месяцев, и она мне помагала с сыном. А на данный момент, мы сами с мужем потихоньку справляемся, до следующего приезда свекрови. 🤗
.
.
Я веду к тому, что #мужчины тоже могут быть не плохими родителями🥰 У них тоже это заложено в природе. Если они видят и помогают ребёнку рости, то они будут интенсивнее заниматься малышом в свободное время, и будут очень даже горды этому❗️#Папы начинают больше любить своего малыша, и конечно же больше ценить своих родителей👍
.
.
Папа может❗️Так как мой муж, папа нашего Аскольда читает мои посты, хочу сказать что ты лучший ПАПА, я горжусь тобой, мы тебя любим 💋💋💋

⁣
Want to try some fun moves from my lower body workout this morning???⁣
⁣
Try each of these combination moves for 4 cycles each then repeat! ⁣
⁣
So many things I love about these 3 moves specifically:⁣
⁣
⭐️ they are functional⁣
⭐️ they bring in the entire body⁣
⭐️ there is a strong focus on core control and strengthening⁣
⭐️ the utilization of diagonal patterns to promote trunk control and strength!⁣
⁣
Can’t wait to hear what you think! 😉💪

  • Confidence ✨
.
.
Once upon a time, I had a gym membership. I think I can count on my two hands the number of times I actually utilized it. I hated going because I felt so lost... I didn't really know what to do other than run on the treadmill. And those things aren't ideal for tall people nor do I find them very enjoyable.
.
.
I still don't really like going to the gym... I kind of like having my own equipment to myself and not having to put in the extra effort of leaving my house at 4 AM. But if I need to, like while I was hotel living all last week, I now have the confidence to rock my presence in the gym. I don't let my insecurities about what others may think hold me back from doing something that makes me feel on top of my game. (And it's not because I'm some body building beast now. Trust me, I struggled putting up the 10 lb weights that just happened to be the lightest on hand 😅)
.
.
But it's so much more than the confidence to step foot in the gym and own a fitness routine. Ever since I've started this coaching journey and consistently consuming personal development material, I have the confidence to say yes to opportunities that spark my interest... like a Leadership series put on by the Chamber of Commerce. I'm much more willing to engage, and network, and participate. Like during the class I was at least week for work. When I compare it to a similar conference I went to last year, I got so much more out of it because I had the confidence to step out of my shell more.
.
.
So you see, this opportunity isn't my life. I still have a family, friends, a full-time job, and other hobbies and interests. But this opportunity gives me life. It pushes me to take action instead of just letting life happen to me. It pushes me to be the best mom, significant other, daughter, friend, and co-worker that I can be. And those are all things I can't put a price on. 💜
.

(Still working on the selfie game... I'm ok with not being very confident on that front... Seriously, where are you supposed to look?!? 😂)

  • When I was in my second trimester, my husband asked me if I was ready to be a mom. I laughed, shook my head, and maybe, amidst an eye-roll, leaked a tear. "No. I'm ready to be a dad. That mom sh*t looks way too hard." 😬

He assured me that we'd both have an equal hand in parenting our daughter. He assured me that we can be whoever we want to be. I didn't believe him. I was CERTAIN that once I became a mom, I would cease to be anything else. 🥴

You know what? We were both right. That mom sh*t IS all about the hard stuff. But, when mommas CHOOSE to do the hard stuff, we can become MORE of who we were created to be -- better workers, better friends, better sisters, better wives, better <INSERT YOUR NAME HERE.> 🔥

I want my baby to grow up believing that mommies can do anything that daddies can do! In a society that gives women equal rights but fails miserably to give us equal opportunity, finding the momentum to thrive in motherhood is an uphill battle, but one that is SO WORTH FIGHTING. 💪

Here's to realizing that motherhood can be EMPOWERING when you choose to do the hard sh*t! If you wear your title like it comes with a cape -- OR IF YOU WANT TO -- this is the page for you. I invite you to join me as I share about how I find the MOMentum to Thrive. 🦸
