When I first saw posts about coaching, I really didn’t think it could be a real thing. ••
Like HOW are all these people posting all these happy selfies?
It must be “too good to be true”. 🤷🏼♀️
Until I started and realized it takes... WORK.
Just like anything worth having in life. ••
It’s almost like REALIZING that it’s NOT always rainbows, and Mexico getaways (although that part is ridiculously fun 🙏🏻) made me realize I loved it even MORE. ••
There is a COST to building a business in any form.
Whether it’s a full time gig to support a family or even a part time business on the side. ••
Some late nights working instead of Netflix-ing.
Some early mornings when your warm bed feels easier.
Some “Am I really good enough to lead this team” self doubts.
Some people who just don’t get you and your passion. ••
But is it worth it? ••
To me…. heck f’ing YES. ••
Trips like this being surrounded by people who want to have in depth conversations about life, relationships, and IMPACT on the world around them, only amplifies my GRATITUDE for that girl I was 2 years ago.
The girl with SKEPTISM but HOPE.
The girl with every excuse in the book of why this COULDN’T possibly work out (even as a part time thing) that finally just said…. well CRAP …what do I have to lose trying if I keep thinking about it anyway? ••
This is PART TIME for me...and i made MORE this week than i do in my day job that’s full time 💃🏼🎉🙌🏻

You all know how to make a ✨MAMA✨ feel good! My inbox filled with compliments and inquiries about my outfit. Both the top and shorts are from @target and both something I never imagined myself feeling comfortable in. This lifestyle is LEGIT! 💕I’m looking for 5 more mamas ready to rock their summer wardrobe and feel comfortable in their own skin! Message me directly and I’ll share all the details! #beautymeetsbeast#loveyourskin#mombody#imheretohelp
LOVE LOVE LOVE this real mom post from @jennyschatzle wearing her @hooterholster jug band hands free pumping bra and being the generally badass super mom that she is. Keep on rocking, Jenny, you’re an inspiration!
How many websites do you visit daily that require a password? Too many! On top of just the sheer volume, we know it's smart to have a different password for each and every one of them. Who has the brain capacity for all that? Not me! I also don't want to write them down somewhere that anyone (including my kids) could find them and start running amok with my credit card! Seriously! Lastpass means that I get to have it generate amazing passwords that make my website visits more secure and I don't have to waste brain space on passwords!
You may be looking at this picture and seeing the mess in the background, a computer on the kitchen table, the tired eyes, and the weird angle... what I see is clothes out to pack for a weekend away with my boys (leaving tomorrow and still didn’t pack a thing...), the computer set up for my husband who has been working non stop on videos for church after he gets home@from 10-12 hour days, a hard working mom and wife who also works a full time job plus a second job plus full time staff at church hence the lack of sleep, and the weird angle is cus my little 3 year old boy took this picture while he lay on the couch with scraped knees from a fall outside today. You may see a mess but I see beauty... and I feel beautiful! #elgoddess#elaraluna#elaralunagoddess#elaralunaboutique#beauty#workingmom#workingmomlife#plussizedress#plussizemodel#plussizefashion#toddlerphotographer

Had a great dinner at The Borner Farm Project for pizza night! 🍕 Met up with some great friends, enjoyed the weather and explored the farm. Highly recommend. They have pizza night every other Friday during the summer. #familymemories
A couple of weeks ago I started using the @kikki.k planner. My sweet husband gifted me some a set of @crosspens for Mother’s Day and I’ve filled my planner with @thedaydesigner planner pages. Even with all my tools to plan and crush my goals, I am definitely needing a reset. I’m looking forward to my weekend with my boys. We might hit up @seaworldsandiego. What are your weekend plans?
We have a fun new podcast episode up just in time for your poolside listening this weekend! 😎 We loved getting to talk with @danielle.shaub about transitioning from full-time work to new motherhood, how she is finding her new rhythm, and what works for her in this season. New and expecting mamas, don’t miss this!
It’s fajita night at the Hiseman’s! 🙌🏼💃🏼 With my nutrition plan I’ve been following for ~almost~ a month, I’ve stopped having evening carbs. Why? I simply don’t need the energy from carbs like I do in the morning when my plate is half carbs! #DONTQUITCARBS 🥖🍞🥐 So tonight, my fajitas will be in lettuce wraps and we won’t be seasoning the chicken with the store-bought mix because even though it says low sodium, salt is still the 3rd ingredient and sugar is the 2nd! I’ll show you what I’m talking about in my story later! What’s something you’d like to learn from me about healthy choices that I can share with you on Instagram? Tell me 👇🏼 side note: best hubby ever is cooking tonight 🙌🏼👏🏼💕 @jacobsmilsurps
Every once in a while, something comes into your life that is the GAME CHANGER!
For me, it was this!
A brand that believes in health, life, and goodness.
A mission to help others live healthier and more fulfilling lives.
A product that is environmentally sustainable and ethical made by creators that have integrity and conviction.
A culture of growth, collaboration, community, and encouragement.
A team that celebrates vision and creates deep bonds between reps, clients, and customers.
I love what I have gained as a Coach ❤️ Looking forward to sharing more soon...
Ethan knows he’s always getting a big💋from his mom! 😝 Today was his last elementary school band performance. 😢 The real tears will flow at promotion in a few weeks...brace yourself for that mushy post! 😭
“I’ve been done with that.”
I’m already on the other side. I already have all of God’s promises.
I listened to a webcast yesterday and the speaker answered a question about alignment. How do you know if what you’re doing is in alignment (with your purpose and God’s plan). And I loved her answer.
It’s so simple! If the thought of it feels good, it’s in alignment. It’s from God. If the thought of it feels bad, or you have fear or dread, it’s out of alignment. It’s from the devil.
And that’s not to say that the devil can’t get in there and cause some bad things to happen in your life. I’m going through things right now that I know are not from God. But His promise is that there will be an end, and He will carry me through.
I’ve been done with that!
And this applies to everything! Struggling with something work related? Imagine what it’s like to be on the other side of it. When you think of something that feels good, that’s from God. He will get you there. Everything from now to then is taking those steps that you know will get you there.
Struggling with your health? Imagine every detail of what it feels like to be healthy. Imagine what you look like, what your skin looks like, how your body moves, how your internal systems function. When you’ve got a crystal clear picture that makes you feel so alive, joyful, and free... that’s from God. That’s what He promises you. You’re already done with anything that feels less than that perfect feeling. Your only task is to take the steps, following the guidance of God, and make that promise a physical reality. BECAUSE IT ALREADY IS!!!!
Feel free to ask questions if you need more explanation. 😉
Happy Saturday! I have 3 daughters, 4, 16 and 18 years old. I love coming up with ways to show them how random you can get. My favourite so far is when I am with my 16 year old and we go through Macca's drive through and we pay for the person behind us and then we watch their face in the rear view mirror, to see them surprised and delighted (and sometimes really confused) that a stranger has paid for their meal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Be a blessing where you can.
Just living life the best way we know how! ✌🏻I keep saying it - but the mountains ⛰ are our happy place and hold a pretty special place in our heart. It was in Colorado when we took back our life, and being able to share with our littles is simply unbeatable.
It was no small feat, but we climbed to the summit of✖️MOUNT MUSCOCO✖️and beyond proud of both kids! They were completely exhausted, taking breaks along the way - but, never, not a single time, asked to quit. Quitting is not an option and proud to be instilling that mindset in them both! When you want something bad enough, you convince yourself of nothing but success, and enjoy the journey! #beautymeetsbeast#mountainslovers#takebackyourlife#teachthemyoung
