You may have not been my dog since you were a puppy, but that doesn’t change how I love you! You’ve been nothing but wonderful, loving, sweet, and a sense of comfort and purpose since you came into my life. Happiest THIRTEENTH birthday, mama. #birthday#thirteen#dogsofinstagram#mamabear#happybirthday
Three years ago we had our first child in the comfort of our camper. We traveled around the states and that was our home. When I first found out, I went the traditional way of an OBGYN. After the first 15 minute appointment with her prescribing me medicine for morning sickness and a bill that was outrageous, I wanted another way. At the moment I had no idea what that was. I started doing my research and found out that you can legally have babies at home! I found the perfect midwife who held 1 hour appointments and prescribed eating more food in the middle of the night. Midwives cover prenatal, birth and postpartum appointments. The cost is extremely affordable especially compared to hospitals. Statistically you have a lower chance of anything going wrong with a natural HOME birth than a hospital one. Women we know, our bodies know. We were made to give birth. The pain is something we can handle. When I experienced this, I came out stronger, I found strength I thought I never had. After I had this experience I realized how taboo it is to talk about a home birth. Nobody wanted to hear a successful birth story. As we continue to evolve I hope this changes. The power behind a natural home birth will stick with a woman for life. It's a force that carries her forever. I think the greatest thing was just realizing that I had that much power and of course the baby.
Women we are amazing. We are powerful•
My weekend warrior hesitantly allowed a selfie. 😉 .
You know what I love? Having these moments with my teen. So often life takes over...but having moments each day to not only push through the struggle but to also celebrate the triumphs is a great way to learn more about life. It’s a way to handle those issues that present themselves without warning...a way to be prepared for what may lie ahead.
In doing so, my wish is that she will not only become stronger physically but even more so mentally. My wish is that she will know her strength and be confident in her abilities. That she will know her worth and hold others to her standard. That she will not have to face the harassment of others yet, when presented with it, will have the strength to speak up and boldly walk away. .
Best wishes for a beautiful day spent celebrating you and your loved ones! ❤️
🌴I AM SO READY!

Mom life: Checking the baby monitor every 2min to make sure the baby is still asleep and you can keep going! 😉We had two meltdowns mid workout and then he finally napped for a bit.
Not every day is about going hard. This weeks workouts were challenging enough! 😜 Here’s what I did to get the blood moving:
SmolovJr: Back Squat
6x6 at 80lbs (Stories) - Nice and light.
A couple rounds of Butts & Guts:
Reverse Box Step Offs

Dumbbell Pull Across Plank

I know that there isn’t a HUGE physical difference because only been one week - but I’m so freaking proud of these pictures because I’ve been 99% on my nutrition this week (I had coffee with creamer + vanilla flavoring two times this week) and 100% with my workouts.
I’m feeling STRONG mentally, physically , and emotionally. I’m loving this journey and the things I’m learning about myself everyday by pushing and challenging myself in new ways.
I would L O V E for you to experience this feeling too - not necessarily with this exact program - but just the changes that being HEALTHY can make, even in just one week.
There’s a spot in our virtual gym with YOUR name on it - claim it TODAY by reaching out to me 🖤
Sometimes you need to do the right thing even if it means braking your own heart. This morning I had to say goodbye to my baby girl, Martini. 14 years together and it still doesn’t seem like long enough. She was like no other and she will definitely be missed. 💔 #mamabear
