Don’t you just LOVE getting pics of your little ones while at work?! I had no idea my hubby, @mattyvkc, had a mini photoshoot with this cutie pie while I was “helping” big bro get his shoes and coat on for our family walk yesterday.....It only took about 10 minutes...🙄❤️🤨💙🤗 . . . #littlelove #littlesister #littlesisterbigheart #mybaby #babygirl #girlmom #toddlermom #igmom #momsofinstagram #momsoftoddlers #nofilter #iphonepics

Here’s the truth: Your situation is never permanent. It’s what you make it. Life isn’ t solid, it’s fluid. It changes. And like the seasons, people have the ability to change too. . Read below the stars for a Personal Develop Challenge today. . . This morning while in the bathroom getting ready for school...for work...I remembered that 1/2 of my students will be on a field trip today. What did that mean?! CHANGE of plans!!! Yesterday’s church outfit can be reused another day....today this #workingmama is wearing JEANS! Hehe . Ya know what else I realized? Although I’ve lived in my house , with my amazing husband for 4 years, I have gone a driven a different way to work each year. I just keep switching things up cuz, well, you never know what advantages another route will bring unless you TRY another route. . Seems obvious, almost easy. Sure it was an easy change but since January 2014 the changes in my life haven’t all been easy but most of them have been on purpose...whether I knew it or not! . . You see I have become a WHOLE NEW WOMAN in the past 4 years... . ✨I have learned how to be a good mother, ✨I have learned how to balance my career life with my mom life, ✨I am learning how to be a homeowner ✨I have learned to show love and appreciation for my husband (both verbally & non-verbally) EVERYDAY, ✨I have learned how to support other women through life’s ups and downs while allowing others to support me too ✨I have decided to wake up, everyday, on my OWN terms to feed my heart and mind with posititivity & passion ✨I have started to become the woman that I was MEANT TO BE...and she would be SO proud. . . Over the past 4 years my path has changed. I have learned to duck or swerve or leap A LOT and you know what? Thankfully, with the grace of God, I will still CHANGE and learn MORE 😃 . . . So today, January 22nd, I challenge you to think about how YOU have changed in the past 6 months...one year...4 years....10!!! . ...and I’d like to invite you to SHARE one new path or lesson or route... . Let’s embrace celebrate these CHANGES...and make accept the new ones that have yet to occur. . . . #inspire #change #changeisgood #momsthatchange #embracechange

What a crazy, awesome day! Off to bed and exhausted from all the meal prep & fun, yet frightening, toddler moments....you know what I’m referring to 😉. #thankful I’ve decided to “recycle” my church outfits every Monday morning! #onelesstasktonight ....✌🏼😴 . .

About 3/4 way done with meal prep and one kiddos is still sleeping. That’s pretty successful if you ask me! On the menu this week is: . . ➕sweet potato ribbons w/ Marissa approved, EB meatballs & some delicious, not-so-homemade marinara sauce ➕TJs fish sticks w/ roasted sweet potatoes & broccoli ➕creamy curry coconut lentil soup * w/ jasmine rice and asperagus ➕ steelcut oatmeal w/ fresh berries, slivered almonds, chia & flax cuz who doesn’t love #breakfastfordinner ?! ➕#VKCpizzanight per, almost, usual 😉 (we use TJs shredded almond for the #dairyfree ladies in our household!) . . * thank you to my new friend that made the BEST CHOICE to join my crew of ladies.....my fit fam. 😃 I am SO excited to taste test this one shortly 👍🏼 . . . I seriously can’t even begin to explain how thankful I am for making the choice focus on my health and fitness and to share it with YOU. Sure, being healthy and fit might have come more naturally to me, but I never worked my butt at the gym like I do with my at-home workouts.....and I NEVER did meal prep like I do these days. . You need something to spice up your life! You gotta start thinking positive, eating better, and feeling prepared for (most of) what life has to throw your way! . ...and I can help. I WANT to help....it’s my passion, it’s my dream, it’s her dream ♥️...and I just can’t keep it in anymore!!! I cannot wait to SHARE more about how this has changed me and what it can do for you! . Can’t you tell? That’s why I post, everyday, multiple times....cuz SO MUCH has changed since I made the choice to focus on me, my health, my fitness, my GOALS....so much has changed IN me and my family and friends see it too. 😌 . . . . . . . #livewelllovewell #mealprep #mealprepsunday #listeningtothegame #gametime #bastingoil #healthyliving #healthyeating #bastingoiltotherescue #failtoplanthenplantofail #momlife #coachlife #inpire #inspiration #getfit #gethealthy #fit4me #fit4life #doitforyou

Trying to get a picture with my kiddos (esp my little man!) is like pulling teeth these days. Well, except for my fur baby that is! lol. Mommin’ ain’t easy folks, but we push through and cherish the moments we can because we know we’ll look back and miss this phase, those cheeks, all the snuggles, and yes, being asked to help with Every. Single. Task. 🙄🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️😌 . While big bro has pretty much mastered the potty training thang (hallelujah!), he has turned into a picky eater out of no where these past couple months and yet wants us to do everything for him. Every other minute he’s telling/asking us to.....”open this”, “get that”, “help mom”, “but I can’t DOOOOO it!”, ya know, like when the house already looks like a tornado rolled through and yet he “needs“ to play with _____. Yeah, ok, kid, lets clean up one activity before starting another....ummmmk! . Then there’s this little girl. Sweet as can be but ohhhhh boy is she exerting her independance. For real.....it’s not even funny. From climbing onto the ottoman...and then promptly jumping off!, to feeding herself ALL the food...ya know, like oatmeal....with her spoon sometimes! . . AHHH they test me every day and yet I wouldn‘t have it any other way. . . With grace in our hearts, less money in our pockets, and fuel in our tummy’s we are off for a family walk in hopes of tiring out these kiddos so they nap while we meal prep and then wake for #gametime. Always a fun time walking around our neighborhood on days like today cuz we are sure to see some #patsfans with their #gameday gear on too! . . . . . . #playoffs #playoffseason #dogmom #girlmom #boymom #momoftwo #momlifeisthebestlife #momlife #patsnation #nflpatriots #nflplayoffs #nflcutie #12 #goat #billybilly #sportfan

Little math lesson for ya this Staturday: IF...you fail to plan, THEN...you plan to fail! #facts . It’s STATurday (typo on purpose) in my accountability group and I am making some serious moves today...ya know, in my workout clothes from yesterday!! HA! #dontjudgeme #youknowyouvedoneittoo . . I don’t normally weigh myself, in fact I did more while preggers than ALL the days in my life combined...seriously! These days I thrive on the #NSV and know that I’m making progress when I feel stronger and my clothes fit better! 🙌🏼 . So...I’m just sitting here, chowing down on this delicious protein-packed yogurt bowl, doing a little planning while my #toddlers play on and around me! . . After trying out an awesome new, healthified pancake recipe (thanks for sharing everyone!) and making another batch 😉 to freeze some for the week...I made our “try to get done” list (essentials always at the top)... . ➕ finish our weekly meal plan ➕ quality time with my little miss while the boys grocery shop ➕ workout before toddler bedtime ➕get both kids to sleep at the same time! 🤞🏼 ➕ help THREE more ladies start their journey 🙌🏼 ➕ share some cool victories from my group this month ➕ vacuum the house . Oh and we can’t forget... . 🎄🌟GET THE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS PACKED UP ONCE AND FOR ALL! 🌟🎄 . . The good news is we can now SEE in our improved bathroom again thanks to Paul Macrina Electrical Contracting Inc. !!! We’re BEYOND blessed to have neighbors and friends that are like family ♥️. We had already “lightened up”...but didn’t even have to make the call. 😌 Guess doing some work and hangin’ with the coolest 3yo I know is a good excuse to escape the confines of a house full of soon-to-be ALL teenagers! hehe.... . . . . . #healthyeating #healthyliving #mealprep #fit4me #fit4life #livewelllovewell #momoftwo #girlmom #boymom #momoftoddlers #lettherebelight #mrfixit #newrecipes #proteinpackedlunch #proteinpacked #hempseeds #chia #hemppowder #yogurtbowl #freezedried #eatmorefruit #eatmoreveggies

Speak words that will build others up rather than tear them down. Find the wisdom and seek guidance to think before you speak. - - On the heals of a not-so-good-day, these simple words from a tiny book of prayers for women really spoke to me this morning. Yesterday wasn’t horrible, but it was not my best performance - as a teacher or mother - either. But...instead of rambling on about how I will “place a guard over my mouth that I may not destroy the faith or confidence of others”, I’ll just leave you with these words...again... . . Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. . . . . #simpleprayersforwomen #morningtherapysession #therapysession #therapy #livewelllovewell #womenempoweringwomen #empoweringwomen #ig_motherhood #girlmom #boymom #momoftwo #lifewithtoddlers #momlife #teacherlife #proverbs #thinkbeforeyouspeak #knowyouraudience #buildothersup #wordsmatter #talklesslistenmore

Happy THANKFUL Thursday. I am thankful that I remembered a little secret I have to share with you and a helpful...hopefully!...book that I bought a couple weeks ago. . What are you (surprisingly or not! Hehe) thankful for today? . My secret is revealed below...look for the phrase “following my DREAMS”. The book....well, that lead me to, ironically, trying something new today. . What did I try? It’s nothing much...to most ladies...but to me it was a L E A P to say the least. hehe. This morning I spent time (much more than expected!) on a new “hairdo”! Can you tell?!💁🏻‍♀️ 😌😬🤣🤷‍♀️ . It looked easy enough...simple steps. lol. Yeah, right! Not for this tomboy!! ...but...nonetheless, this morning, I tried something new. Why? Because I CAN! Was I hesitant to try? Sure was! ...braids ✔️bobby pins ✔️ hair spray...?!.😬. Hahaha. Did it work out as planned? Nope...and it wasn’t ”easy” as the directions implied (HAHA!). But.... . I’m THANKFUL that I tried cuz at least now I have a starting point and, honestly, it can’t get much worse!! Haha . . BE THANKFUL THAT YOU ARE HERE. 😌 . You are strong. You are beautiful. You are kind. You are worthy. You are talented. You ARE...enough. . . . I am so beyond thankful that I finally made the choice to stop feeling sorry for myself and to start FOLLOWing my DREAMS...my passion...my heart. . I’m a wife and mom and sister and daughter....but I’m also a teacher and a coach! I am a COACH...I help others find ways to live the most beautiful, thankful, joyful, and healthy life. I help others by helping ME. And you can to. . JOIN ME. Join my team. Ladies just like you are searching for MORE. More time with their famliy, more reasons to be thankful, more community among other like-minded, amazing women....and, heck....I’ll say it...a little more spending cash $$. . Wanna see how? Wanna know WHY? Wanna get a little glimpse...a sneak peak...into what I do and WHO I have been learning from to do it?! . Today my team is hosting a Sneak Peak into Coaching. It‘s held in a private group right here on FB. It’s free. It’s easy (much easier than doing hair!). And it will CHANGE YOUR LIFE! . Trust me...!

He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 🌻 2 Corinthians . Huh...it’s so simple yet also SO profound. I’ve heard the phrase ”you reap what you sow”...and have used it in context (aloud or in my head) numerous times. Yet, I never knew it’s origin. . #truthbomb about #myfaith .... . I have been full of FAITH my entire life, but have yet to fully, like whole-heartedly TRUST in His plan or ”believed” His teachings. . I was raised Catholic and many of my family members still practice Catholicism. However...most of my immediate family do not attend church every Sunday. I do. My husband does. My children do. Why? To LEARN how to practice faith, to GROW as better children ourselves, and to BUILD community among our friends....our “church friends”. . Hehe...in my head, I almost separate the two: friends and church friends. Why?! It’s not like I wouldn’t spend time with them outside of church, in fact we do and have on several occasions! And I like these people...like REALLY enjoy spending time with them and sharing stories and living our lives as He would want us to. . And yet. I still separate these two types of friends. Is that “normal”? Have you done that subconsciously too?! . Please tell me I‘m not the only one. Cuz, now that I think of it, in many ways it’s like my own, benign, form or segregation. . . I DO believe in a Higher Power. I DO believe that we need to have FAITH and to TRUST in...something...but lately, with the family stuff I’ve been going through it’s...tough to truly BELIEVE that this was meant to be. . . 😢 . ...that THIS was His PLAN . . . But still. I am doing my best to have faith and to live my life, especially these days, by... . ...the Serenity Prayer.... . . ...Do you know it? Could you recite it? Let’s! ....5 words at a time...cuz I could use a little BOOST of Faith today....this week....”these days”! . . Ready?! I’ll start... . . Thank you in advance for playing along and helping to LIFT me up. 🌻✨

#dinnerisserved ...or WAS served I guess haha. Recipe below. . Sharing this recipe, as I promised in my Story from yesterday... .

Usually my lunches are either leftovers portioned out ahead of time, a salad with chicken or hummus and ALL sorts of other goodies, or yogurt.... . Lately I’ve been mixing up my yogurt with some extra protein goodness (shown here): . . • hemp protein powder (right off the shelf in our local grocery store) • roasted unsalted almonds • granola (we’ve been loving the Simply Balanced blueberry that’s nut free so it’s school safe🙌🏼) • chia seeds • hemp seeds (newest fave purchased from TJs yesterday - they’re nutty & packed with protein!) . . I mix these with 1/2 plain Greek yogurt & 1/2 flavored greed yogurt. OR like I did today....with TJs vanana yogurt. 😋 . The green hemp powder helps to offset the sweetness of the yogurt. It’s so so yummy AND good for your tummy!! . . . #goodeats #easylunch #fillsmeup #healthyeating #livewelllovewell #fuelyourbody #hempseeds #chia #chiaseeds #proteinpackedlunch

Start where you stand. . This morning I woke up to my alarm (hurrah!) sweating 😕. I don’t know why. Bad dream? Heart still racing from my 60 min workout last night? Hormones trying to figure themselves out this time of the month? 👧🏼🙋🏻‍♀️ Who knows? It’s probably a combination of the three...and some! . Anyways...I digress...lol...start where you STAND. . When I stood up sweating and walked across the room to turn off my alarm, I chose to snooze...”just once”...I said to myself. YEAH...like that EVER happens. HA! It was three times to be exact. Thankfully I was still up before 530am, before the rest of the family, in time for my morning ME time...my ’therapy session’. Phew!! . Start where you stand. That phrase keeps playing in my head. I heard it during my workout yesterday (my own ‘personal’ trainer at home has a new, amazing, motivating line for every. single. move!) . What does that phrase mean to you though? . . To me, it means if you want a change...I mean REALLY want it, you gotta start somewhere. . You gotta START SOMEWHERE. . Change happens from within and thoughts become actions soooooooo make the choice to CHANGE your thoughts, your mindset, and START. It doesn’t matter where you started! Don’t compare YOUR start to someone elses. Start where YOU stand. . My hubby stood up today got out of bed and took the dog for a walk like we often discuss and KNOW needs to happen. He STOOD up and just did it. Did he like it at first? NO! Did he have a ton of excuses? YES! But did that matter in the end? Nope....cuz he STARTED. He put one foot in front of the other and DID IT! . Dang....I’m sitting in my home office working on me and working my side biz freezing my BUTT off...can you say split ranch?! lol... . I’m freezing inside and yet he went OUTSIDE, for 30 minutes and gave our pup a much needed and deserved walk. HOLY MOLY...I’m so proud of him. . ANd I cannot wait to be proud of YOU too. . . Just do it. Just STAND UP and chase your dreams. Follow your joy. Follow your heart. Stand up and start THERE. . . The end. 😃 . . . #momlife #dogmom #coachlife #metime #offtowork #offtoschool #teacherlife #teachersofinstagram #startwhereyoustand
