I will forever be your stabile and secure. I will forever be your safe place and biggest supporter. I will forever put your needs as my priority. I will forever love you and raise you in the best way I know how ❤️ One day you will ask, but I think you’ll already know.
Dropped Alfie off at school, dropped Phoebe off at nursery, came home had breakfast & a brew in peace, had a nice longgggg shower, managed to wash AND condition my hair, did the essentials that you don’t get to do whilst being mithered by 2 kids 😂 now if anybody would like to go & do my shift at work, that would be great 👍🏻😂
[ Lazy Afternoon ] In the new house looks a little something like this... mama forgot all the shops are shut today so it’s peanut butter toast for dinner... oops! The spare room is still the dumping ground and the garage is full of unpacked boxes and all those miscellaneous annoying pieces but I’m taking the afternoon off unpacking to enjoy a drink!
A message to the future generation. Feel empowered, push to beat equality, be on fire for feminism. I absolutely love this shit. ✊🏻But don’t be afraid to be vulnerable in the wake of this new uprising of feminine energy. Being strong can sometimes be your greatest weakness. I Speak from experience when I say this. I stuck it out in a past relationship for too long because I was strong, because I wore a bullet proof vest over my heart. I thought I had the confidence to block out any negative comments. I had the attitude that no one could tell me what to do, or wear or say. But guess what? Even the strongest can bruise. Even the strongest can get knocked down. Every little word, every tiny remark slowly and surely takes its toll over time. The walls break down, the bullet proof vest wears thin. But you don’t have to take the hits and act like it’s nothing. Be vulnerable and don’t let anyone tell you to “be strong” cuz that shit gets you know where. Feel it for what it is so that you can make clear minded decisions and create changes in your life instead of just extending the pain. Process every feeling so that you can move on. It’s ok to not be ok. I now have a new philosophy. There is nothing life can’t throw at me that I know I can’t work through. It may not be easy but like the saying goes “It’s not how you fall down but how you get back up”.
When you tell the girl that mama has the next two days off to celebrate with her🎉🎉 This break couldn’t have come at a better time!💯 This struggle has been too real! I’m just exhausted. I’ve gone to work the past two days looking like an runaway orphan! No gel on these edges, bun looking like tumbleweed!😩 Every time I looked in the mirror, I got more angry with myself...like damn girl! You ain’t gotta look how you feel!!😒 So I ordered a greasy ass lunch because when I’m emotional, I eat like I’m ready to die!💯 That’s the only way I can describe it! I know it’s disgusting for me and my health...that I will only feel worse once I eat it...and even still I eat it! I don’t give a fuck in that moment but when my stomach felt tight enough that I was physically uncomfortable, I got tired of the pity party I was throwing myself! So I finished my day at work, came home and fixed my hair. Yeah, I busted out the tub of EcoStyler gel to go absolutely nowhere!😂😂 I did my hair for me! I’m about to get a workout in. It probably won’t undue all the crap I ate but it will help me feel better...more powerful!!✨✨It’s okay to have a shitty day and be in a shitty mood because that’s human! Allow yourself to be human. Give yourself the space to be imperfect. Feel it and then release it! Get back up and keep fighting!✨✨
Let's be real. Everyone, I mean 90% of women get cellulite at some point in their lives. Annoying? Yes. But I had no clue that it was actually a visual sign of our bodies storing toxins! Gross right?! “The body stores toxins in fat to help minimize how much toxicity your vital organs are exposed to. The dimples and pockets of cellulite are also full of toxins. Toxicity accumulated in your body over the years will show in your cellulite (and a myriad of other unpleasant symptoms).” so what are ways to reduce toxins?! ..at a glance.. switch to more natural products.. no more toxins in or around the skin.. what goes on your body goes in your body!! drink more water, dry brush, & SWEAT.
Here’s the thing.. you can spend all the money in the world on “quick fixes” for cellulite, but the ONE thing i’ve seen work more than any other is working out and building muscle to replace those little pockets of fat stores!! I like to hit up my trouble areas- back of the thighs, and butt region. And, since it smells ahh-mazing, I hit up areas that could use some skin help along the lines of appearance. My Mummy tummy, and inner thighs.
Give it a whirl! One pump goes a loooong ways!

Be yourself, because not to sound like a broken record, but every other damn person is taken. 🤷🏻♀️
I spent 20+ years trying and failing to be someone I wasn’t. I wore clothes I hated. Listened to music I didn’t enjoy. Tried to be friends with the wrong people. It was tiring y’all. 😓 #EntGotTimeDat ✌🏻
Problem was - that left me with no idea where the ffff I fit into this world. I wanted to do like 10 million different careers. College scared me - and when I did go, it stressed me out so bad I sank into the worst depression of my life. 😩 So I chalked myself up as a failure, went back to retail, and said this was basically my life forever. 🤷🏻♀️Until coaching found me. Or I found it. Whichever. But finding a business that pays you to share shit that makes you F E E L better and L O O K better and B E C O M E better? A “job” that pushes you to not only be yourself, but help empower other women to do the same? 🤯 Like what even. How is this a job I get paid for? 🧐It’s still genuinely mind blowing to me, but I’m also thankful af for it because it’s something anyone who wants a life of freedom with limitless options can do. 🏞
I’m looking for 5 women who are ready to change their lives. 🤞🏻 If you want to work from anywhere your phone goes while you get into the best shape and mental state of your life - reach out. 👋🏻
It's worth it to be proactive! 🌿 Inhaling Hong Kuai oil and applying Deep Relief + M-Grain oils to support some slight head pressure before it becomes a real doozy. Praise God 🙌🏻for these oils derived from plants for our health & wellness as He intended nature to be. #purity#naturalbeauty#cleanliving
We were gifted #purpose days at work. Today, three colleagues and I used one of our purpose mornings to help pack lunches for kids in Calgary who might otherwise not eat.
It is pretty hard to learn when your stomach is growling.
We were PB&J (nut-free PB) sandwich ninjas. 🎉👍 The 4 of us from 3P made 273 of the 1108 sandwiches.
I have participated in a number of #volunteer opportunities during my corporate years, and i have to say this one was fun! The brown bags are decorated by students or a note of encouragement is placed in the plastic bags.
Music was playing, we were grooving and it was probably one of the most efficient kitchens I have been in (and i was in the restaurant industry for years) We became a finely tuned machine.
There was even time for #coffee and stories about the students' lives being impacted 😁
And I learned a thing or two. I have caught my kids sneaking food for friends and said 'stop that! This #singlemama can't feed your friends too' . Now I will ask more questions and see if we should instead be talking to their teacher to get their friends the nutritional support that is available and that they may need 🤔
Not only did we help make 1,108 lunches for local kids that received them at school today, we prepped the veggies, fruits and baked goodies for tomorrow's lunches.💪
AND each day @bb4ck feeds 4,200 kids at Calgary schools! ❤️❤️❤️
(Back in January)
Leah: Mommy I’m Happy I got all A’s but not so happy I didn’t get ALL of the awards.
Me: It’s ok Leah you we’re sick and mommy had to keep you home to take good care of you.
Leah: Ok mommy but I need to get THAT award (aka Perfect Attendance) **That next quarter this happens 👇🏽 She received her perfect attendance award; & A Honor Roll, but when I say she WORKED FOR THAT PERFECT ATTENDANCE hunty she WERKED & WERKED me 😂😂 but I am soooooo sooo proud of My Baby!!
So this girl right here in this photo is the reason you see me posting daily. She is the reason why I send you messages saying, “You need to join me!” Best of all she is the reason I said YES to an amazing opportunity that is changing my life!!!! 💚The best part about it is that I am truly so passionate about these products and this business so it is so easy for me to simply share what I have to offer! -Take it or leave it mentality-
Because living in debt or paycheck to paycheck is stressful. No ones wants to live that way. Or maybe it’s not even that...Maybe it is having the freedom of YOUR own time so you can be with your kids. Maybe it is putting a stop to your corporate job telling you what you are worth. Maybe it is wanting to pay for your college now, so you don’t graduate with all the loans that come with all the crazy interest. Whatever it is, this can change that! I know this is a million dollar opportunity and I am going to make all my dreams come true. 💫 It seriously lights a fire inside!!! So why not take the chance? Say YES! Come with me and I promise that when you see the vision your fire inside will be lit too! 🔥 🔥 🔥
Thank you for sharing this with me @mrsmurph !!!! 😘
This babe turned five today...FIVE. We have gone from nursing and diapers to t-ball, scraps and dirt, but still a boy that loves his Mama all the same. Did I just write a country song?😉
So so proud of this stinker and excited to head to Florida tomorrow to celebrate at Disney! It’s been a hard year and this dude deserves the world.
Thankful for a job where I can work from anywhere, and experience the best with my babies. You don’t get these years back. I’m soaking up every second.💕
I’m a progress type of person ... Since becoming a mum I’ve really come to live by the motto that “you might be slower but your still lapping everyone on the couch” in respect to any life goals I want to achieve as #MumLife time is somewhat limited. ...
So going for perfection, which, by the way I don’t think exists otherwise why are each of us so different and varied?! This is my mum rationale and it goes like this ...Imagine if each day you spent 10 minutes exercising, 10 minutes learning another language, 10 minutes practicing drawing, and finally 10 minutes doing some sort of personal development. You won’t progress quickly, but a little bit of consistent progress each day will take you really far over a long term period of time. Learning and growth shouldn’t be time lined but thought of as a life journey. Plus doing why you can instead of stressing about what you can’t it is much better than always talking about your dreams and ideas, but never acting on them. #UseWhatYouCan
#pregnantaf This was the last picture I took as a preggo!🤰🏽I thought I had so much time to get my room ready...that’s actually what the caption said...I delivered my healthy 6lb, 1oz miracle two days later✨✨ I knew she would change my life...I had no idea she would change my spirit as well! She’s made me stronger than I ever thought I could be...I can’t wait to kiss her face off in celebration of her amazing little life! #taurusbaby#madewithlove#aprilbaby#april25th
My world was flipped upside down 2 days ago. I’m very confused, lost, and broken. But I have to be strong for my beautiful baby boy, he doesn’t deserve this and I don’t either. So for him I will work on me, make myself the best mom in the world no matter how lost I feel. I want to be confident again and love myself, for him. I want to show him you can do anything in the world no matter how pained you feel. I have such an amazing family and friends and all of my followers and snappers have been incredible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart thank you, all the words of kindness and love you’ve shown me does help as much as it can in this situation. Please continue to love me up, comment, dm, text, snap me. It helps. And any single mamas who see this can you message me any advice or good things that come of it. Xo. Love you all.

But what about marriages that aren’t so glaringly awful? What about marriages that feel like they’ve run their course, or women who feel a sense of deep dissatisfaction, or who fully understand that the oppressive natures of their marriages aren’t because there’s anything specifically “wrong” with their spouse, but rather the system that’s created an imbalance of work and power in cis-hetero relationships? What about women who are just fucking tired of the emotional labor they have to do in marriage as a whole, and dream of living on a commune with their girlfriends because they know that women aren’t meant to bear the burden of motherhood alone? What about women who are just fucking pissed at their husbands for being complicit in the patriarchal structure that has us bear the brunt of the work in the household, while the men just go about their lives totally blind to the lists that constantly scroll through our heads, invisibly juggling the work of a small village singlehandedly?
How do those women know if they should leave?

I am trying to be a smart packer 💼 this time to avoid baggage fees on my return flight. So I have PLANNED my outfits 👗 down to the day and event! 🤔Are you a planner or a throw #allthethings into a suitcase or five and call it good? 🤣
Please take a minute to read my beautiful friend Andrea Carter incredible testimony!
Meet 2012 Andrea. I can’t even recognize that girl anymore. That girl was extremely overweight and ridden with anxiety and depression to the point she couldn’t even leave her house to grocery shop. Think about being house bound 24/7 because the moment you walk out the door, you’re hit with a panic attack that literally takes your breath away. I know how cliché it sounds and I know I say it all the time but PLEXUS CHANGED MY LIFE. I’ve lost weight, my stomach issues are non existent, I’m able to be a stay at home mom.. all of that is great. But more importantly, I’m LIVING. I’m 100%, deeply enjoying living my life. I’m not held back by fear anymore. Anxiety is a scary thing. I was so embarrassed by it for such a long time so I kept it a secret. I lived with it for years just hoping one day it would go away. Who can relate?
Now meet 2018 Andrea. This girl is fearless and speaking out about anxiety because I know I can help someone out there who struggles with the same things I did. When you make your health a priority, everything changes.
Repeat after me..
I don't have time for the gym.
My health is not a priority.
I don't have time to make healthy meals.
My health is not a priority.
I don't have time for Plexus.
My health is not a priority.
Yeah, about that. 😏 Sounds silly right? You are important and your health matters. 💗
Oh how much different life is these days compared to four years ago. How different I am.
Gah. I’m gonna be real honest y’all I hardly recognize the girl on the left. And not just because she was in the tanning bed way too much but because she was so unhappy. I spent my days in a constant state of turmoil it seemed. I was desperately seeking something/someone to hold on to. I partied 3-4 nights a week. I starved myself back and forth. I just couldn’t get it together. I didn’t want to.
Fast forward to now. My greatest joy comes from that little boy that’s my mini me. I am at home in my own skin and no longer frantically seeking more. I have community, I have accountability, I have balance, I have confidence and most importantly I have happiness!
Callan changed my whole life. He saved me from myself. He’s made me a better Christian,woman, daughter, sister, friend, employee.
I didn’t think life could get any better after he was born. But I knew I wanted to do everything possible to be the BEST mom I could be for him. When the coaching opportunity presented itself to me I had no idea what it would do for my life.
But you know what? It’s completely transformed my life. Now I feel like I truly am the BEST version of myself which makes me the best mom I can be! I feel at home. I feel at peace. I feel fulfilled. And guess who gets to reap those rewards? That cutie little kid with the silly smile.
Are you feeling lost or like you’re searching for something more? Do you want to be a better version of you? I’m right there with ya! Let’s chat and see if we can’t all be on this journey together! 😘
As some of you may or may not know, we will be having weekly Mom calls just to have a place where moms can come together to encourage each other along the way.
