I never thought I would quit my gym membership.
I never thought I’d workout at home.
I never thought I’d become a coach and help other women.
.
But now I do - - and it’s changed my life 🙏🏼
.
Life has a way of bringing beautiful things into your life when you’re ready for them 🙌🏼 I never thought I’d have the most confidence AFTER having my little dude🤰🏻, I’d make a living by making a true difference all from my couch + pjs☕️, or that an online fit accountability group would be the missing link I needed before and now is what keeps me going!! 🏃🏻‍♀️👭💗
.
It’s cool to be skeptical but it’s more cool to be living the way you want!! It’s your life, the ball is in YOUR court!! 🏀
.
Always here to talk fitness or business 😘 #linkinbio

Anyone else feel like your house got taken over since having kids?! I suffer from OCD and anxiety so I’d be lying if I said that it doesn’t kill my soul a little bit seeing all of the toys, movies, dirty dishes, and laundry everywhere 😳 My house used to be flawless before becoming a mom..and now..well it’s not to say the least haha 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
This year I’m trying to take control of my life in every aspect..my workouts, my eating schedule, my business, and my house AKA my life 💁🏻‍♀️ SO we’re starting room by room and slowly but surely we’ll get rid of the clutter which will give me a lot more peace and happiness 🙏🏼🙌🏼!! I can’t seem to find a good storage option for all of our movies, they’re literally taking over haha!! I’m thinking a cute dresser that can lock since someone LOVES taking them all out!! What do you mamas do?! I’d love some inspo!!! 💗

Thank GOD for days like today! The warmth on my face...the blue skies...the fresh air. I feel like a new and rejuvenated  momma! It is truly amazing what some alone time and some amazing weather can do for a girl! Momma's... Take some time for yourself! It's so hard to do...but makes us such better versions of ourselves. ❤

I didn’t commit to this 13 week program JUST for a killer bod {of course, that’s part of it😜}, but I knew it’d help me grow in every aspect of my life!! 🌳
.
I thrive on schedule and to be honest the past few months since Brenton left his corporate 9to5, we’ve been struggling finding a new norm! 🤷🏻‍♀️ We don’t have really any set schedule which is super liberating but also a little chaotic!! This program though, oh girl I think it’s exactly what I need!! 🙌🏼 The timed nutrition has been taking some getting used to but knowing what, when, and how much you’re eating is empowering too! It’s only day 6️⃣ so I haven’t gotten it all figured quite out yet but I can already tell this schedule is going to make our life so much more organized and give us more balance!! Betcha never though some ol workout program could do that 😜 When you’re ready to transform your L I F E..you know where to find me #linkinbio 👭💗

“It’s not a punishment to eat healthy + workout, it’s a blessing.”
.
This is what I have been reminding myself of all week as my body has been detoxing from sugar and all the things I got used to having over the holidays - along with pregnancy cravings. I’ve been showing up and working out everyday but my nutrition has been so/so.
.
This week was week 1 of my new program along with a new nutrition plan where you practically eat ALL day long - but lots of good stuff. I am amazed at how my body feels right now.
.
I ended the year 10 weeks pregnant, my body then went through a miscarriage and now is truly is recovering. I’m proud of how I have been listening to it and taking care of it 💗
.
So far I’ve lost 4lbs and 3 inches 🙌🏻
.
Just want to encourage you this morning that taking care of your body is not a punishment. Yes, you will have to sacrifice some things in the process, but you will gain so much. I’ve gained a stronger relationship with God, a better, positive mindset, a more disciplined life, friendships - SO many friendships, and I just feel peaceful. It’s helped in every area of my life and it could yours too 💗
.
If you haven’t, go grab a spot for my Be-YOU-tiful Wellness Challenge. {link is in my bio} As we learn how to be confident in who God made us to be as we learn how to take care of ourselves!

One more workout to go this week and week one is done!! It went by so fast...
I’m super sore but it feels amazing! 
I’ve eaten according to my timed nutrition plan and followed the workouts👌🏼 I’m loving seeing the girls in my group post everyday of how they are getting it done through life, obstacles and obligations. 
They are all making me want to stay on track that much more. 
I swear by accountability and support❤️ Today was leg day and I think I was still sore from the hour booty workout in Tuesday!🍑 It feels incredible to be back on track and back to following a plan. Makes my life so much easier🙂

The look of a mama at 6:12am, wrapping up her workout for the day and logs into her bank account to see the biggest paycheck she’s gotten to date 🙌🏼🤩🙏🏼 I don’t like to talk about money a lot because I didn’t start coaching for it {after all it’s NOT a get rich quick thing} but I think it’s important that people also realize that this is a REAL job that puts food on our table and a roof over our heads!! 💰💵
.
So girl in case you’re wondering - - you CAN make money all from your couch + pjs, helping others make positive choices and get healthier, and get to chat with some pretty cool babes who will turn into some of your best friends 👭💗 Oh and sn: this past month has been one of the HARDEST times for us with Brecky having 2 ear infections, strep, bronchitis, and this gal getting the flu!! Honestly, if I had a 9to5 job I would’ve been fired or had to quit as much as I’ve had to be home with him and yet..it’s been one of the best months in MY business 🤘🏼 {when you’re ready to start running YOUR life the way you want it, you know where to find me! 😘🙌🏼👭 #linkinbio #ownbosslife}

🏖Beach Baby🏖

I love creating memories and catching snaps of my princess, she was a little windswept but her @themiarosecollection headband helped keep her hair intact! A walk along the water breathing in the sea air, sure makes her sleeps in the afternoon long!
Love this lace t-shirt from @bigwaustralia for a cheeky $5!

Our 34th Lighthouse on the #30lighthousesat30 tour is the Sanibel Lighthouse! I started this in effort to travel more with our kids, to experience more places instead of having more things. This collection of memories and moments and places with my sweet humans has been so much fun so far! So grateful to be the mama of these little adventure babes. #outerbanksmomtravels

Happy Aloha Friday, friends 🤙🏼💗
.
We are getting ready to unplug and head out on another play date! The weather is still wayyyy too cold to go outside, so we’re spending our time hanging indoors with friends.
.
Mamas seriously. We need friendship, we need connection, we need to get out of the house! It’s so good for you. And it’s good for your kid(s) too!
.
Find a few friends that you can meet with throughout the week. It will not only result in a great nap time 🙌🏻😜 But it will be so refreshing for you to have some adult conversation!
.
I challenge you today to call up a friend and go hang out! Whether you invite them to your home for coffee and a play date. Run up to chick-fil-a and let them play on the indoor playground. Go walk around a mall. Just go DO something ❤️

A beachy dreamy day.
A beachy dreamy day.
So Aron has started school, so I’m finally getting some time with my little baby- that’s not so little anymore! Sitting on the beach with Ashley, and it immediately takes me back to Aron at this age, I remember it like it was yesterday, and now he’s 3!! I’m trying to stay in the moment, enjoy every second because these moments are all that matters. I will never get these moments again... in a way I’m excited to have my freedom back, have two grown up boys and have longer sleeps at night, but on the other hand I can’t imagine not having these little persons needing me!! Their mama... I don’t know if I’m ready to not have a little person... maybe another baby sometime?! My husband will die reading this... ha ha any other moms feel like this?! Here’s to a beautiful weekend 🐠🌴🌸🌞🍉🍭🍡🍪🍼🍰🏀 #mamahood #momwithboys #mamasboy #babyashley #beachmom #beachbabe

That moment when you wake up and realize it's Friday. 🙏🏻🌴🤘🏻Wat ons betreft, mag deze week snel voorbij zijn. Het was immers een week vol builen, niesbuien en dokter mama to the rescue. Iets opbeurend graag dit weekend! Zaterdag kan je bijvoorbeeld bij Jeugdcentrum vleugel F met de kids een interactieve muziekworkshop volgen. Inschrijven kan je via de website van de stad @leuven . Wij dachten aan wat vegeteren met nieuwe boekjes uit de bib en een injectie Disney. Wat jullie? •

#outerbanksmomtravels #bestiesgonnabest
I always knew I wanted to be a mama.
I always knew I wanted/need to work.
I also knew I wanted to be there for everything with my babes. .

I thought providing and being present were contradictory. That no matter what I was going to have to sacrifice one for the other. .

But the opportunity to do both basically fell into my lap at the near perfect time.
.

It has been two years since becoming an online health and fitness coach and it was a decision that changed my life!
.

This decision has •  Allowed me so much time with my  family
* Helped me find purpose and passion in work
* Has given me an outlet outside of being mama all day long ;) * It has given me permission to dream, to work hard and hit goals and enjoy the process. * It has given me community and friendships
* It has expanded my heart for helping others
* It has provided an income for our family where I have given myself consistent “raises” 
If you are interested in hearing what coaching is all about I am hosting a call ‪Monday, January 29th at 8pm PST‬! Send me an email at amyryland@gmail.com with Coaching in the memo to reserve your spot!

When I was told about this business and the possibility that it could change my life and my family’s financial situation I thought it seemed to good to be true.🤔So I didn’t get my hopes up. When I launched my business one year ago I thought this would be a hobby, that I would make a few dollars and hopefully have fun doing it. In the last 12 months it has exceeded my expectations in every way. Can you imagine a job that:
.
💵Pays you to better your health
.
📖 Encourages personal development
.
❤️Helps you form positive connections that enrich your life
.
👏🏻Gives you a tribe for encouragement
.
💰Allows you to write off trips, fitness gear and nutritional supplements
.
💳Gets you discounts at Lululemon and Athleta
.
🏋🏼‍♀️Let’s you be the first to try new programs from top trainers
.
✈️Potentially earns you trips to AMAZING locations *spoiler alert* I’m heading to the Maya Riviera this year!😮
.
And so so much more!?!
.
If you are where I was a year ago, barely managing your kids, in debt, frustrated by lack of time and energy and resources, wanting to change but just not sure how... I know this will sound too good to be true. I am a REAL success story. And honestly, I feel like if I can do it, ANYONE can! 😂 It has taken faith, courage, heart and hard work. But I am changing my family’s life doing something I LOVE and find deeply fulfilling. I know this sounds too good to be true, but if your interest is sparked please contact me right now! I would love to share more with you via a private event on Facebook next week. Comment or DM me for the add!

Another fun day at gymnastics 🤸🏻‍♂️It’s makes me so ecstatic to see the joy on my son’s face with something as simple as a gymnasium 🏟
.
He’s been working so hard lately with his listening skills 👂🏼and potty training 🚽 that he definitely deserves some fun in the gym! 🎡 I’m so proud to say that he’s been full on potty trained for two weeks!! Yay to NO diapers 🙅🏻‍♀️ at least until baby girl comes 🤩 .
PS - I’m totally jinxing myself and he’s going to have an accident tomorrow 🤷🏻‍♀️ .

✨ True Beauty ✨
.
As women, we desire to be beautiful, and when anyone, even ourselves tells us that we are otherwise, we struggle with feeling unhappy, inferior, and unacceptable. Been there before?!
.
We can become so focused on outward appearance that we lose sight of God’s truth - especially when our clothes aren’t fitting quite right, we despise our unphotogenic smile, and we look nothing like the Photoshopped models we’re told we should resemble.
.
Outward beauty is nice, but it isn’t everything! It’s not as valuable as the condition of our hearts. It will eventually fade, but real beauty found on the inside will not.
.
Beauty - inside and out is a gift from God and a reflection of His glory. Outward beauty, should be a reflection of the beautiful work God is doing inside our hearts.
.

✨ True Beauty ✨ . As women, we desire to be beautiful, and when anyone, even ourselves tells us that we are otherwise, we struggle with feeling unhappy, inferior, and unacceptable. Been there before?! . We can become so focused on outward appearance that we lose sight of God’s truth - especially when our clothes aren’t fitting quite right, we despise our unphotogenic smile, and we look nothing like the Photoshopped models we’re told we should resemble. . Outward beauty is nice, but it isn’t everything! It’s not as valuable as the condition of our hearts. It will eventually fade, but real beauty found on the inside will not. . Beauty - inside and out is a gift from God and a reflection of His glory. Outward beauty, should be a reflection of the beautiful work God is doing inside our hearts. .

Mommy wook a bwirdy. Mommy wook a big big tree. Mommy, mommy wook a airpwane so high. Mommy wook Ice cream (licks lips) yummma yum. She takes it all in. She notices. She finds excitement in watching birds take flight and wonders at the sight of a big tree. I want to be more like her.

I want to live. To love big. To take adventures. To laugh until I squeal cry. To see my kids grow old and see them live into who God created them to be. I want to experience more joy. To be brave and live courageously. To own every second. .

And that starts by being the healthiest strongest version of myself! .
Some of my cardio core hiit workout in my stories today.

✨ Set Purposeful Goals ✨
.
If you could envision your most purposeful year yet, what would it look like?
.
When you envision your talents and resources aligning with God’s purpose, what would that look and feel like?
.
Pray about where God wants your attention in the long term and short term. How can you funnel every aspect of your life toward loving Him and loving others as well?
.
You never know how long you have left here on this earth to love others and change them for the better in that love. Taking bold action on what matters starts a powerful domino effect. The good you do today has the power to change generations.
.
Life is too short and too valuable to coast through, living by accident. Take your time writing down your goals, pray on them, talk them out with people you trust, and then commit. 💗

When I first started my side gig in a health and wellness company 4 years I never expected to end up here. That company made me realize that working for myself, building an empire was more tangible then I ever thought. •
•

Of course I was terrified! I had al the thoughts swirling through my head just like many women I talk to today. What if it doesn't work? What if they take my money and run? Pyramid scheme? Where will I find the time with 2 kids and a very demanding paralegal career? Will my friends/family support me? ⁉️ •
•

I waited months before joining. No one I knew was doing anything like this! I was going against everything I knew and was taught! I was scared crapless but I did it anyways. I took the BIGGEST leap of faith of my life and prayed for the wings on the way down. •
•

And guess what! I am still in the industry! I am still coaching women just like you into believing in themselves, showing them there is a better way of living and it's possible to have your cake and eat it too. Now this isn't for everyone, not everyone wants to work from home or for themselves and that is 1000%  alright👌🏻 I am speaking to the women who desire this deep deep down 💁🏼
•
•

Just remember whatever your dreams or goals are stick to them and stay true to yourself. Everything will happen with consistency and faith 🙏🏻

If I could go back, more than anything, I would look into the tired eyes of the mama on the other side of that camera and tell her to soak the snuggles up a little more, to relax, to not get frustrated by the small things, to stop worrying, to enjoy it and most of all -> to fill her cup.
.
And that’s the transformation that has happened most for me this past year, is finding a semi balance. I’m in no way, shape or form saying I’ve got my crap fully together 😂 But I’ve learned a lot. I’ve cried a heck of a lot. I’ve missed a few showers and maybe forgot to brush my teeth a few days here and there 🙈 {and don’t judge because you have too 😜}
.
But seriously, there is so much freedom in filling your cup. Mamas we’ve got to set some non negotiables. You’ve got to put your foot down and tell yourself that YOU are important too. We can’t pour from an empty cup.
.
I’m so incredibly thankful for the community that I have found. I love how every day I have a group of ladies from all over the world that are cheering me on and I get to do the same for them. I love how I get to workout at home - because Lord knows trying to take a toddler to the gym isn’t going to happen. I love that it’s the whole package. I not only get to stream my workouts from home but I have learned how to truly eat what my body needs. I could go on and on about what I love about what I do 😍
.
But I’m just thankful for the transformation that has taken place in my heart and body. 💗
.
So this week, you’ll continue to hear my ramblings about non negotiables. And just know it’s because I love and care for you and want you to be the mom that you were created to be!

✨ Clear the clutter ✨
.
It’s easy for life to get overwhelming right? The laundry never seems to be done, there’s the never ending picking toys up off the floor, ya know. All that mom stuff 🙈😆
.
Well here’s my biggest hack for clearing the clutter of life.
.
1.Pray - ask God to show you the things that should be most important in your life.
.
2.Evaluate - Evaluate your life. What are the things that you are putting too much pressure on you? What are you spending most of your time doing? What things do you need to give up? {read my post from yesterday}
.
3.Non negotiables - figure out what your daily non negotiables are. This will help you feel like you got a lot accomplished 😜 AND it will keep your priorities in line.
.
Mine are: quiet time with the Lord, work out, adventure with Keoni, power hour {read + get stuff done while Keoni takes a nap}, check in with my challengers. This will also help you say “no” when certain opportunities come into your life and they might not be for your benefit.
.
4.Make it happen - Put those into action. Don’t overwhelm yourself with the big picture. Take your day moment by moment with purpose, but wrap it in grace because ya know, mom life. Things don’t always go as planned.
.
So I encourage you today to pray, evaluate, get out a piece of paper and figure out what your non-negotiables are, and make it happen. ❤️
.
If you do it - I want to hear how it went for you!

Being a mother is learning about the strengths you didn’t know had... and dealing with the fears you didn’t know existed 🌈
.

I’m not motivated to workout in this pregnancy the way I was with my first. But it’s not about motivation so don’t tell me “you’re so motivated” 🙅🏻‍♀️ It’s about being strong enough and determined enough to just do it. 💪🏼 Pushing past the fears and excuses and just freakin kicking butt. .

PS 👉🏼 How freakin cute is my cheerleader?! 🎉🕺🏻 .

Day 1️⃣ of 8️⃣0️⃣ workouts is done.  You know what this commitment feels good.  This new program is making fitness exciting for me and our team again. That's one of the things I love about change and trying new things. Sure change can be scary but it can also be exhilarating!  Change can lead you to dream bigger, push harder and dig deeper. I see so many of my teammates pushing out of their comfort zones.
.
I'm embracing every aspect of this change to my fitness and nutrition. I'm trusting the program and the process 100%. I'm going right crush my goals and have fun doing it!

Who is ready for Spring Break?! ☀️ 👙 🕶 🏝
✨ Evaluate your life ✨
.
Vulnerability is where change begins. In order to leap into the new, we have to first know where we are leaping from.
.
So... how are you?
.
How are you feeling physically?
How are you feeling about your work?
How are your relationships?
How are your finances?
How are you feeling about your gifts and talents? Are you using them?
How are you feeling about your relationship with God?
.
What about last year? What grew well and produced fruit in your life? What are you grateful for? What good things happened?
.
What didn’t work well for you this past year? What hindered you from living on purpose? What areas of your life need to be tended, watered or soaked in sunshine?
.
Be still and think about those questions and answer them honestly.
.
I know stillness is hard. We don’t want to be still. We don’t know if we can handle what’s waiting in the stillness. It might be painful or overwhelming. We don’t want to feel, period. We fear stillness won’t be productive. We don’t want to think or feel, we want to do.
.
But stillness is not the opposite of forward motion. In stillness we are able to hear powerful wisdom that gives us clarity. And clarity produces action. That’s what we want right?! To know what to do.
.
It may seem counterintuitive, but it’s true: stillness enables us to move forward with purpose. Surrendering to stillness might be the most active, life giving step you take. 🙌🏻💗
.
So what about you? Do you have a hard timing being still and evaluating your life? I encourage you to take out a pen and paper. Write those questions down. Think about it. And listen to God as He reveals the answers to you.

Choosing to focus today. Simplifying by making my list of what to focus on and accomplish. I don't know about you, but when things start to get jumbled in my head I tend to get overwhelmed. Making my list helps me focus and let go...no matter how long the list or how big the project, the list gives me focus...it simplifies the overwhelming feeling...it shrinks the mountain...and more importantly, making the list allows me to let Him do what he does. Let Him provide. Let Him comfort. Let Him love me. Let Him surround me. Let Him do bigger and more amazing things than I could even imagine. Let Him.

I don’t want to let today slip by. Because moments matter.
.
Let’s watch for those moments today where we are given the choice to let anger, envy or something else negative slip in.
.
And when one shows up, let’s recognize it. Refute it. And then replace it with God’s spirit of love. ❤️
