Sometimes my workouts are time away from the kids and sometimes they are my time with them! So thankful I can do it at home anytime and this girl can join me!!!
Especially love it when we finish up and she has some muscles to share! I just hope she's always proud to be strong & so perfectly her. 💕
I keep this picture on my desk of my family. This was a roadside picnic in the middle of nowhere on our Spring Break trip that my earnings as a coach gave us. They are my why & my everything.
I started my health journey for myself and for them. I needed to be a better me, a better wife, a better mommy. Along the way I aligned myself with some serious truths about life, my family, dreams, and future.
Beachbody found me much more than I found it. And I have been blessed without measure by this job. Yes, it changed my body, but also so much more. It changed my health. It changed my heart. It changed my mind and my soul. And now it's changed my life, my family, and my future.
I resigned as a teacher for Salem Keizer and Walker Middle School today. I didn't do it with a light heart. This is a community I have loved for many years and a district that has treated me so well.
But, what is life without growth? It was time for me to grow. Of course my growth has come with growing pains, but that's how it should go. A caterpillar has to be smashed into a cocoon before it can become a butterfly, after all.
I have never, ever nor will I ever lead my business around money. And I know a lot of companies do. This company is NOT about sales, it's about people and heart. But, yeah, you guys..... it brings people home.
I don't talk about money because I never want sales people on my team or people who care only about making money in my team. I talk about real people changing their lives because I want people who don't want to sell but DO care about people on my team. The rest takes care of itself.
So, thank you, Walker Middle School community for all the love over the years. I love you back without measure. Thank you Salem Keizer Schools for the opportunity and growth I have been given for the last 15 years.
And, thank you Beachbody and all my clients I LOVE SO MUCH for this next step in life.
Ask and you shall receive! I'm a new parent to the school system even though I've been involved my entire life, from being a student to my mom being an employee and still an employee during her retirement. This is my first time as a parent so I wanted to be involved in his education and let them know I'm a concerned parent. Well I received the schedule for all of the activities over the summer and ALL OF THEM were during the DAY! Unless I'm that out of touch most parents work, so how are they supposed to be involved and get information if nothing is in the evening or on a Saturday? I posted a message on the boards of both organizations and a stat on my personal page. A friend tag someone who had the power to make sure I received the information! Days layer she tells me there will be a session on a Saturday in a few weeks! Then I received this flyer in my email! Now plenty of new parents will have access to necessary information needed to begin their child's education career. Speak up and be heard! Remember you are their advocate and first teacher! #moneymanagingmommy#momonabudget#save#savings#budget#budgeting#budgetcoach#budgetcoaching#financialcoaching#educate#education#financialcoach#singlemom#singleparent#mochamom#iamhisfirstteacher#standup#advocate#bps#buffalopublicschools

Just created a #youtubechannel 👉🏽ShamIAm and 4moorebrothers! Trust me you want to follow to see how I take #thrift finds for less and not look a mess among other shenanigans! 😜
My boys channel will be an array of shenanigans! We are some funny characters so I finally decided to take us to You Tube. First posting of the boys will be when this dramatic mom 🙋🏽 rushes home to get them off the bus. They gonna be mad 😜 but seeing it live and raw is hilarious!
Guess what guys? You can't out exercise a bad diet 🙌🏻
I know crazy right? .
I've heard it a million times. And I've probably said it another million times. But the funny thing is, I'm also human and that means sometimes I mess up. It also means I have the ability to learn from my mistakes and improve. .
So my nutrition hasn't been the best recently, but I have decided to get things back on track. And the easiest way to guarantee that I stick to my nutrition plan is to prep my meals ahead of time. To take the guesswork out of eating. To spend one day cooking up big batches of veggies, grains and proteins and putting them into tupperwares, ready to grab from my fridge. So even when I'm STARVING and have the world's clingiest 7 month old attached to me, I am still guaranteed to eat a nutritious (one handed 🤣) meal. .
The best part, besides having a week's worth of yummy meals waiting to be eaten in my fridge, is that I spent less then $5 in total to make ALL of them 😱
This is what spending under $60 for 7 days of meals looks like. Oh... and shopping with three kids! 😬 YES I already had a few items in my pantry and I did just go to the commissary yesterday for paper products and ground chicken and chicken breast but still ya'll... 7 dinners! Our family of 5... I say 5 because if you know my kids they are eaters (almost 2, 3, and 5) and we have to cut them off ...sometimes 🙈... we can't go out to eat without spending $40-50 for ONE dinner! Super pumped to try these already planned meals out! No more scrolling Pinterest and writing recipes down just to lose the stinking list! Interested in making your busy life mom schedules easier and quicker and possibly cheaper... message me 🙌🏻 "yes please" !! Already getting my FALL September group planned out!! #momlife#momonabudget#armywifelife#armywife#sahmlife#momofpickyeaters#momoftoddlers#momofthree
You don't have to do ALL the things...just the right ones, and do them well! You've heard the saying less is more! Take a moment to assess your days and your time- are the things you are doing getting you closer to your goal? What can you cut out? What do you need to focus on more? #cutoutthenoise#makeitworkforyou#iammissionfit
Hita here from @hitaandhill! Here is a sneak peek into my world. I'm a Mommy to a busy 17 month old, Entrepreneur & Newlywed...which means I'm on a tight budget! Let's keep it 💯 . .
By day I'm generally in comfy clothes running from one errand & Toddler activity to the next, while other days when I have a babysitter (thanks Mom!) I head out to meetings, appointments & adventures with @hitaandhill or a date night with the hubby! . .
When I hit the town to handle work and business, I feel at most "myself" in skinny jeans, a dressy blouse or blazer with some strappy heels! I always have my planner, biz cards & computer in hand, which means I need a cute bag to carry it all in...just like this ADORABLE tote I found at #ArcsValueVillage ! .
I even found my little kiddo some new educational V-Tech Toys, brand new in-package outdoor activities all under $5 total. Not to mention, Arcs also has a phenomenal selection of kids clothes, shoes, household items and goodies for my guy. Yay - this momma was a happy shopper, and I'll be heading back again soon 🙌🏽

If you're planning on traveling to Disney soon, I highly recommend loading up on gift cards! They were a huge money saver and definitely helped the end bill 😜 I bought them over time using my Target Red Card, which saved me 5% each time. Small ways to save 🙌🏼
Poor jamicure is officially wrecked. In fairness though, with all the sanding I did, they did hold up well -- NO CHIPPING! I just can't stop getting my hands into the primer though. 🙄🙄🙄 #toughasnails
Prepping for the Ri's birthday! 🌸🌺🌷I've taken on the challenge to make all the decorations myself so decided I'll work on a craft a weekend until then to get everything done! 💕 Theme is boho-chic. Lots of floral. Soft pastels. Rustic. Really excited how this one is coming along. Just wanted to share the progress! Swipe through the picture to see the progression! 💕🎨 #pinterestmom#diymama#diybirthday
I absolutely loved my facial 😁 I needed that pamper time. Ooh wee the esthetician had some gifted hands. Mighty good she followers her calling...ministering those massages to my face and shoulders. 🙌🏽 Bless her abundantly! By the way...2 manual facials for $17! Had to surprise my mom with this wonderful treat! I've unleashed my #naturalhair ! Outfit details coming...it's super cute and all #thrifted .
Decided to take the kids out to the park to get them out of the house and while we are there we stumbled over this new activity kids are doing painting rocks and then leaving them around for others to find them... the one I found said "smile" definitely needed this today ❤️ #paintedrocks#menifeerox
Guess who got the all clear from her doctor that she can start back to running and cardio.... THIS GIRL!!!!!! I'm sooo thrilled. I have to stay clear of heavy lifting and core work for another three weeks but I can start breaking a sweat again!
