This morning I was complaining to myself about working out and then I stopped and reminded myself that there are people in this world who can’t.  People in this world who WISH they could get up at any time of day and move their bodies, sweat, lift, strengthen.  Shame on me for taking for granted the fact that I can and because I can, I most certainly WILL. .
On the days you don’t feel like it, sweat for those who can’t.✌🏻

Such an emotional day. Today Mikail officially started his journey to becoming a Wynberg Man!!!! Next time he rings that bell is on Valedictory day!!!! #proud #wynbergmanjourney #WBHS #stepmomlife #idoitforyou #mikail #highschooljourney
Another workout completed in the privacy of my bedroom before opening the door to kids and work this morning.

This morning was
10 x swings
1 - 5 - 5-1 goblet squats 
10 x Mt climbers

Repeat for 10 rounds

Total
100 swings
30 goblet squats
100 mt climbers

12 minutes.

It was then breakfast and a 2km walk around the block with the kids. Trying to get them into doing exercise every morning.

Work then house cleaning before lunch and 3 hours surfing at the beach this afternoon.

Love we are an active family.

I learned about a new app today that will help me document my visual food diary.
I talked to my nutritionist today and will be trying to keep my calories around 900 a day at least until I start ramping up on my half marathon training.  Today I went over that, but that’s mostly because I had too many calories in the morning.  Tomorrow is a new day and I will hit my calorie goal.
I also had an issue with water today.  Nothing I drank tasted right so I didn’t get much in.

1069 cal, protein 70g, 32oz water

Ha!!! So totally me!! But me and my control  neat freak behaviour was getting me burned out right quick!! I knew something had to change so I started to delegate.  Still not easy but Thursday night is chore night around here.  Each of the girls have a list of things they are responsible for.  If they don't do it they don't get allowance... and let's be honest they have to listen to me nag them until they do.  They won't admit it but I think they secretly like it.  It gives them responsibly and ownership.  Makes them feel needed and important.  Do you make your kids do chores?

Finally! Home and pajamas on. Everyone was moving too much to get a good clear photo. I’m just so relieved that Cody has taken the step to fix things. The dogs were extremely excited. He didn’t get two feet into the house before they tackled him. Time to celebrate that he’s ready to face life with some more help from us. A sense of peace has come over Scott and I. Here’s to life in Louisiana for him.

Oh man! I got up at 0300 today and I’m kinda convinced Autumn tried to kill me during my workout 😵

I pushed play on my workout at 0400 🙌 and it was a challenge to keep weight off my injured toe, but I was able to modify and get through it 😉 I got SO SWEATY!!! #girlswholift #stepmom #stepmomlife #countrylivin #quilt #knitter #crochetlife #ninjastyle #tattooednurse #coffeemug #nurseproblems #nursesofinstagram #germansheppherdlover #kittykitty #kittylover #furbabylove #nursingstudent #graduatestudent #gradstudent #pwnexplorations #blueeyes #fitspo #alldayeveryday #MMPWellness

This was an exciting afternoon!! I decided to wait to do my run when my kiddo got home instead of freezing my butt off this morning.  On the way to the bus stop I saw a javelina on the trail I take to get to the bus.  That freaked me out a bit.  It just stopped and stared at me, so I went a different way and I think it went in a pipe under the road.
Then as Mayson was riding his bike down a hill, he was ahead of me, he fell and a truck was coming (luckily we live on a slow street, so the guy was going slow), but that definitely improved my pace for that run! 😬
We did a total of 2 miles, but the program I’m following only had me doing a 3/4 mile temp run, so that’s all I captured here.
It was a nice afternoon for a run!!!!

Getting ready for the shot! On another note, looking at all these pictures makes me want to hop on a plane back to Spain. But this is real life and that's just not going to happen. 
Instead, I'm at home without the stepkids or hubby which can get lonely at times. When it comes to times like these focusing on the positive, visiting friends and keeping busy helps this stepmama until her family is back home ❤️

As we prepare to go through my first CPS experience, my husband could tell I have been sad. So this is the message he sent me today:
•
•
•
“Don't let this get you down.  Remember that not only do I love you,  but lots of people love you.  Hopefully not  in the same manner, of course..... 😊. These are little and big bumps on the road of life.  But will meet these challenges together, my woman.” And this is why I love him.

Castanhas em janeiro! Why not ❓❓❓
Castanhas em janeiro! Why not ❓❓❓
The concept ‘good-enough parenting’ was first used by an English psychiatrist, Donald Winnicott, in the 1950’s. He conceded that parenting is difficult and complex and that no one can be a perfect parent and that, from a child’s point of view at least, no parent can ever meet a child’s every single need – i.e. failure is inevitable, but not necessarily damaging. .

This concept works for stepmums just as it does for biological mothers. Accepting that good enough is in fact actually good enough is ... well, it can be liberating for the modern stepmumma.
.

There is no one perfect way to be a stepparent. Perfection just doesn’t exist in stepfamily life (or in any other type of family).
.

Good enough frees you from unrealistic expectations. It allows you to breathe, to relax, to focus on what really matters.
.

So, embrace the good enough. Use it to soothe away your stepmumma guilts. You are going to fail your stepkids & you AND they will survive. It’s bound to happen & it’s bound to be okay.
.

A good enough stepmum is the best kind of stepmum - #itbeginswithyou.

The concept ‘good-enough parenting’ was first used by an English psychiatrist, Donald Winnicott, in the 1950’s. He conceded that parenting is difficult and complex and that no one can be a perfect parent and that, from a child’s point of view at least, no parent can ever meet a child’s every single need – i.e. failure is inevitable, but not necessarily damaging. . This concept works for stepmums just as it does for biological mothers. Accepting that good enough is in fact actually good enough is ... well, it can be liberating for the modern stepmumma. . There is no one perfect way to be a stepparent. Perfection just doesn’t exist in stepfamily life (or in any other type of family). . Good enough frees you from unrealistic expectations. It allows you to breathe, to relax, to focus on what really matters. . So, embrace the good enough. Use it to soothe away your stepmumma guilts. You are going to fail your stepkids & you AND they will survive. It’s bound to happen & it’s bound to be okay. . A good enough stepmum is the best kind of stepmum - #itbeginswithyou . .

Low carb/ keto friendly chicken, bacon Alfredo pizza cooked in the airfryer. The brand of vegan cheese I got definitely tastes so much better....buuuut it does have a few more carbs :( #ketopizza #airfryerrecipe #airfryer #lowcarbpizza #dairyfreecheese #snowydays
Birth>Everything. This morning... as I braved wind chills of 2° and icy roads my Florida-born self has never attempted to drive.. I reminded myself that if my clients can be brave that so must I be. Being a Doula has helped me let go and reach deeper into my soul then I ever thought possible. Caring for brave women helps me become one. #doulalife #bravewomen #socold #worthit #callthedoula #bosslady

Thoughts?
Yesterday I seen a post on @stepmummymonster and was reminded that there are people, unlike me, who feel like the mother is entitled to spend child support on herself. 
Personally, I feel like CHILD support means for the well-being of the CHILD. Mom’s nails, or hair did doesn’t have anything to do with the child. But that’s my opinion.
What’re your thoughts?

Holy deliciousness!  Switched up my meal plan a little today.  Chopped up my turkey burger & wrapped it up with some veggies.  Perfection.

Thankful I don’t understand the #mentally and #emotional unstable. The rules are simple yet never seem to apply when she’s on the other side of them. .

Hello everyone. Yes, I have been missing but life has been so crazy.  It has been quite challenging with SD for the past few months and all came to head this week when we received a visit from CPS with an allegation against us for “emotional abuse”. I have been through an emotional rollercoaster with all of this because it is the first time I have been involved in something like this. So tomorrow we meet with them and see what this is all about, although based on the last few months and SD determination to go live with HCBM no matter how she accomplishes that, we shouldn’t be surprised.

60 minutes of pure booty moves... say what!?!?!? 🍑🍑🍑 I laughed, I cried, I died. And I must say it is one of my favorite workouts I have ever done! I really needed it since my brain is all crazy with the weather throwing a wrench in important plans today! #80dayobsession #bootyday #allaboutthatbass #ohmygoshbecky #ilikebigbowsandicannotlie
This happens ALL THE TIME in my #blendedlife. It used to make me mad but now I just laugh. When the kids grow up and look back. They’ll know. #stepmom #stepmum #stepmomlife #bonusmom #theblendedlifeforme

These sliders were tough. Mainly because I’m still figuring them out and how to use them, but they worked my abs like nobody’s business. But Day 3 is going down. I’m feeling good about myself, where I’m at in this process, and knowing that I’m going to grow and progress from here!

I hope your day is as cheery and happy as Mr. Oliver's face in this photo! We can all learn something from this beautiful boy! I have never met a child (and human) who is as happy and excited about life like Oliver. He has a smile on from the moment he wakes up to the moment he falls asleep. He's pure joy! .

Do it for yourself. Because you can. 
I went live this morning to talk for a minute about our ability to be active in a world where so many people can’t...whether it’s physical disabilities or mental handicaps that don’t allow certain people the privilege of activity. Because it is just that- a privilege. 
I heard some sad news this morning when I had just started working out. And at first I wanted to stop. But I didn’t. I kept going because I could. I kept going for the people that can’t. Reminding myself of all the amazing things my body is capable of. 
Please all, please don’t take your body for granted. Realize all you are capable of and TRY. And if you don’t know where to start, ask me. I’ll help you find a path that works for you, whatever that may be. Start where you stand. Wherever you are now, wherever your beginning is, just begin. I got you. XO

Hump DAAAY 🐪🤣 rollin with the punches since the kids school was canceled (a whopping 1inch of snow) and so were both my appointments for the day 🙄👏🏻 I used to get super frustrated when my plans changed 🤯 type A anyone? But the more time I have spent WITH myself, FOR myself, I have become calmer, more relaxed 🙃 I can’t be a good mom unless I’m  a happy person first 👆🏻so I’ll crush my workout and chores while they do art projects, and then we’ll go play in the “snow” 😂😍 #wednesdaywords

When it comes to stepfamilies, where a stepparent can make the most difference is in her own home. This is what  matters most to you, your stepkids & your partner.
.
Without even realising it, your focus may slip right on over to your stepkid’s other house. Where it doesn’t belong. And doesn’t do you or your relationships any good. .
Spending any time comparing yourself or what happens at your home to the ex’s is time wasted.

It’s what happens in your home that matters - #itbeginswithyou

I keep this on my wall as a reminder. This, to me, also defines "surrender". My mantra for 2018.  I've found that once you do and accept what the reality is and give up fighting it, possibilities open up that you couldn't see before!

Maybe it's giving up your husband being different, your stepkids being different, the ex being different, or your entire situation being different. You are exactly where you need to be, there are lessons to learn and ways to grow. Everything in this moment is ok! Hang in there! .

So happy to have my babies back.  They had a great trip with their Dad but nine days away is too much for this Momma!! Thank God for technology.  I got to see their sweet faces each day still.  Amazing how much I hate the empty house while they're gone. .

Day 3/80 ✅

After two days of feeling like 💩, I think I’m finally over feeling the effects of the sugar detoxing from my body.

Crushed my total cardio core workout, 40 minutes today, nice change of pace from the hour workouts the last two days.

Ready to own the day!!!

Anyone else’s warm up consist of arguing with a ballsy mouse who kept staring at you from under the fridge? No? Just me. Oh okay. Good to know. 😳
.
I’d like to come to you with something inspirational but I’ve been paralyzed by the fear of this little bastard running over my feet. I could’ve used it as an excuse to not workout but I’m not about that life. Me and Mickey got our cardio done! .
In other news: House for sale. Must be a cat owner. 😬

One of my favorite things about this journey is learning what works best for my body. It's not just about fuel, it's about feeling.

Thats why Kris and I have decided to transition to a plant based lifestyle.

Starting this morning with some zucchini bread overnight oats. I wasn't super sure about throwing veggies in the overnight oats but it's a major win! Awesome preworkout meal.
