#SCHWARZKOPFcreators : Currently In Sanya, China for the first time. Decided to take a random trip out here with my parents on my way to Sydney. The island is absolutely stunning but the weather here’s been a lil crazy. One second Hot and humid, then raining the next. Every time I travel to extreme climate it is important to take my little helpers with me ! I’ve been using the @schwarzkopf Magic anti frizz shine serum to keep it tamed, super soft and static free all time. #MYstory#sponsored 📸 @twistedcurlz
*On comments such as “your child with ds has a purpose to teach love, they are always happy, they are angels sent from heaven”. Our children aren’t angels and they aren’t here to serve a purpose to make others better. They just aren’t. If they do affect others in a positive way, then that is a wonderful side effect of who they are. If they don’t affect others that’s okay too. Such is life. My daughter’s purpose is to have fun right now. Throw tantrums and taste new foods and experience tons and tons of firsts. That’s it. She’s two and she’s certainly no angel. She will be held accountable for her actions and mistakes like everyone else. This is how we get to the goal of full inclusion of our kids in society. It starts by not treating our children differently. One thing we do learn when having a child with a disability is to throw our unrealistic expectations out the window early, and every parent has them disability or not. We learn to let our children become who they want to become! Why would we put this expectation about teaching love to everyone they come into contact with? Seems to me that is the heaviest expectation of them all. Click on the link in my bio to read the entire post!
No, I didn't really have my leg bit off by a shark 🦈. One day I woke up with the #motivation to better my life. I was tired of complaining about my situation and not doing anything about it. Sick of fighting off infections in my knee, emergency room visits, frantic calls to my doctors for last minute appointments for antibiotics and always fearing that this might be the one time that I was too late or the meds wouldn't work. I was to the point of fearing not only for my leg but for my life. So I did what I feel like you or anyone else in my shoes (or shoe, rather) would do and electively had my leg amputated. I got rid of the bad part of my body so the rest of me could survive and still live a great life. My point is, stop complaining about whatever situation your in without posing a solution. Either accept it, embrace it, and adapt to it, or go out and find a solution to make your life better. There's always a plan b and if that plan doesn't work, there's 24 more letters in the alphabet.
Part 3: I know that I am not the only one who has had to struggle with traditional medications, side effects and dependency. I have seen these pills get the best of the best people I know! There are tons of athletes, celebrities and great people who have came out that they were a victim of pain killer dependency! It's amazing to me that CBD could potentially help/Cure so many things and that it is still a schedule 1?!? I'm so passionate about this subject because I really hate being lied to and the fact that people's lives could be saved from CBD and Cannabis absolutely makes me want to do everything I can to promote and get quality products to the market and then hear stories personally of how this product helped them! I want everyone to live to 'Be Phenomenal' I want CBD to be the first choice for professional athletes so they can continue to be great without the chance of death or addiction!
Part 2: I had enough of being dependent on chemical pills and did not go back to doctor. I continued smoking weed for my migraines and for fun, as I grew older it was not so much a fun thing for me to feel buzzed a lot of the time. I found that CBD helped with my migraines at higher doses and also helped with balancing my anxiety. I am a person who is never really satisfied with where I am currently at in life and am always looking for ways to be a super version of myself! CBD helped with a lot and the only weird part was that I could not FEEL it like the other medications I had ever taken, it just worked! Cont.
Part 1: Anyone who has had to be on pain killers knows that it is a tuff road to go down. When I was young I felt as if I were a Guinea pig for my doctor who I trusted to help me. The medications he prescribed me had more side effects then what I originally had taken them for! I have had chronic migraines my entire life and was prescribed pain killers for the pain, it was a horrible feeling having to take a pill for stress, a pill for pain, a pill for sleep etc. !

🎄The 12 Days of Christmas🎄
✨Day 12✨ 🎄 On the first 11 days we have walked through my company’s history and shared some of my favorite products, but on the 12th and final day I want to share my story.
I began my journey with Rodan + Fields about a year and a half ago. I had cystic acne, and nothing helped consistently. Enter Rodan + Fields. I thought , “What have I got to lose?” What I didn’t know was how MUCH I would gain! After trying the Unblemish regimen for a few weeks , I decided to be a consultant because these products really made a difference in my skin. At the time, I was looking for a way to earn money for missions. I want to be able to give more, and go and serve others, and I want to help others go and serve. This business has given me the opportunity to give more, and I’m grateful for that.
I love the changes in my skin, the new friends I’ve made, and I love connecting with friends near and far. This business has made me grow and change in many positive ways. And I love an extra paycheck every month! I didn’t know about all the extra benefits and blessings of friends and growth this business would bring me, and I’m very grateful. I hope you have enjoyed learning about Rodan and Fields and why I am so passionate about it during these 12 days of Christmas. I’d love to share more with you about the products and this business!
Every Mom deserves a glass of wine every now and then. Now and then, is RIGHT NOW! My little one has kept me on my toes today! I did however have a really good chest/back workout today, and tomorrow I hit bi’s and tri’s with my new workout partner! Super excited!
In 2012 I was wheelchair bound if I left my house. Years of repeated paralysis attacks had left me with muscles that were too weak and fatigued to do anything. .
When I took my first step on my fitness journey in 2013, it wasn't with the intention of becoming a runner, personal trainer or Beachbody coach. I just simply wanted out of the wheelchair. .
I had no idea if it was even possible. Had my muscles been damaged too far to recover? It was anyone's guess. I figured I didn't have anything to lose by trying. .
Initially I didn't tell anyone what I was doing. Keith was VERY protective and would have sternly told me to stop. I didn't tell my girls because I figured if I failed then no one would know and I wouldn't be ashamed or embarrassed about another failure in my life. .
It wasn't long until I had to tell them because I was so excited when I made it out my front door and onto the sidewalk then back into my house without falling or having an attack! I couldn't wait to try again. .
Twice a day I would see if I could make it a little farther than I had the previous time. Baby steps. That's what got me from that wheelchair to where I am today. .
My weight didn't start to come off until I started drinking Shakeology in 2015. This year all the pieces have started falling into place. .
I am the healthiest I've ever been. My energy level is through the roof. I've lost 54# and more inches than I know. .
I also lost a wheelchair. Well, technically I didn't lose it. It's collecting dust in my garage and my fancy electric wheelchair is in my brother-in-law's garage. .
Some of you want to feel better. Some of you want to lose weight AND KEEP IT OFF. Some of you want to be able to keep up with your kids or grandkids. Some of you just want to learn to eat better. .
I'm here to tell you it is possible. YOU CAN DO IT. I have all the tools, proven to work, and I have the experience as a RN and personal trainer to back it all up!
I am taking applications for my next group that will start in January but will begin prepping in the next couple weeks. Watch for details. It's going to be a game changer!! #gamechanger#mystory#myfitnessjourney#fitover50#notgoingback
Has anyone tried these @amyskitchen bowls? I snagged a few last week at @freshthyme and they are DELICIOUS! I am really working on trying to prep meals for the week, but I’ve just been SO busy because of the holidays it’s just not happening. However, I’m going to prep some little ham and egg bites tonight for the reminder of this weeks breakfasts! Wish me luck 🌟💪🏻
“When Ella was diagnosed with cri du chat I was told the worst news I could imagine. Cri du chat means Ella is missing part of a chromosome, it's very rare (1 in 50,000) The phrase 'Ella would never' became something I would hear often. Ella would never walk, Ella would never make eye contact, Ella would never communicate. Turns out so much of it was wrong! With a lot of hard work and determination Ella has made me so proud with every milestone she reached. Ella walks, Ella is very social and can communicate using a combination of sign, and an electronic device that talks for her. She can recognize 4 letters of the alphabet, as well as her name and the word mum. She knows all her colours and shapes. At 6 years old Ella has already proven so many people wrong, and I believe she will continue to smash her goals as she grows up.” ❤️✨ @pirate.mel #enableawareness#criduchatawareness#chromosomedeletion
Penso che nella vita tutto ciò che fai con voglia, con tanta ammirazione o comunque con tanto cuore prima o poi sia ripagato. Che sia un lavoro, che sia un amore o una passione. Prima poi la ruota girerà e quando girerà allora si che i conti incominceranno a tornare. E quando tornano avrai avuto la tua rivincita, per tutte le forze spese a “vuoto”, per tutta la tua voglia di crederci sempre. Anche se certe volte non va come pensi o come vorresti, la felicità è dietro la porta.
Today I want to share my story as to WHY I do what I do with all of YOU! 👂 When I first heard about lipsense I couldn’t even believe it. It sounded like magic. As I started to look at colors 💋 to see which one I wanted to try... I felt like I couldn’t pick. I finally pick APPLE CIDER 🍏 🍎- a color I was so excited to try! When I went to pay for the color I noticed I was paying more than $55... 👀 I had remembered seeing an post about it only costing $55 to sign up and it made my husband and I start to think. 🤔 🤑 I have always LOVED sales! As a child- I was pro at 🍋 lemonade stands! I find a real joy in selling someone something that I believe in! If I didn’t have the dream and passion to be a motivational speaker I always told myself I would work in sales. As I started to think about that more “this or that” - I realized I could have both! 😜 Never even trying the product before I signed up to be a distributor! I’m so grateful I did! My personal stash of SeneGence products was worth every penny of signing up to be a distributor! 😢 But life is hard. 🤑 I’m not making millions (yet). 🤦♀️ And it does take a lot of work... but boy and I’m grateful I’m still trying! My reason WHY IM STILL HERE - is different than why I joined. I joined because it made sense to buy for cheaper at wholesale. I stay because I see the potential that is ahead! My friend makes $200,000 A MONTH in this business and I’m excited to be right behind her one day (if not ahead). Don’t watch me live this dream - JOIN ME and let’s live it together! 🤗 #joinme#mystory#lipsensedistributor#lipsense#why
2 years difference between these two. Looking at the way i was amazes me that I allowed myself to not care😑
"I've had kids, this is just how I am now. I didn't want to put in the effort to actually make the change. "Not enough time"..that was a common excuse for me😦 but we won't go there today, because I can write an entire other post on excuses😋
My desire to change came after I was always too tired to play with my toddler, my back was too sore, and then my comfy pants were getting tighter...🍕
It clicked..hell no I wasn't buying bigger pants...thats ridiculous I told myself..and I knew I was right 🤓
I found a plan that worked for me. A portioned nutrtion plan with foods I love and keeps me full 🍍and 30 minutes of working out a day from home 💪
No fad diets. I knew I was gonna be able to do it. The changes didn't happen over night..18 months I've been on my journey.(now with different goals).❤
GoodBye 40lbs and Hello to my entire life👊
I did it, and if you believe, and trust the process you can too 😚
