I usually begin my day with a good cup of coffee and a prayer. Quiet and still, I sit before the others wake up.
Then, when I’ve soaked in enough positive affirmations, I start opening the blinds. Panel by panel, the sun drips in. The beautiful rays of the morning remind me that each day is a new start.
Give yourself the grace to appreciate it. Hold your day moment by moment. Take pride in the fact that things are not always easy, but it’s okay. Make the effort to slow down enough to enjoy what’s around you... as it is, raw and imperfect.
Trust me, it’s liberating. (Exhale)

To say I am proud is an understatement!! Today, I “pushed play” along side some powerful women on our last workout of this 6 week program🙌🏻 We committed, we climbed and we conqured in just 20 minutes a day!! The past 6 weeks flew by and truly blown away by the transformation, not just physically, but mentally!! I have never pushed this hard in my life (besides childbirth of course) The trainer has a way with speaking to YOU and making you dig deeper than you can imagine! Plus every workout was different so it was exciting to see what challenge the trainer was going to throw at us each day. It challenged my endurance, my mind and my strength. I loved it so much I am going to do round two starting March 4th!!

It's my birthday today. I'm 40 and it feels so special. I feel 40 is the entrance to something magical for me. It alchymizes the astral parts of me in such a beautiful way. Ive been waiting a long time for this. To be ready. And now I am.
Family and friends stopped by today and I was showered with love and gifts. The day ended with a bonfire meal and stargazing.
Love, Gratitude, Fullness.
Our fighter is 2 months old! He is now 6lbs, 11oz! He is off breathing support and has minimal oxygen. He will be starting to nurse next week. The blood clot in his heart is shrinking. In his 8 weeks of life, he has overcome so much, and yet he is the happiest baby. He brings his mom and dad so much joy. We don’t know when he’ll be coming home yet but we feel like we are entering the home stretch. ❤️ We thank God for all he’s brought us through and for the Gift of our precious boy. #finneganthefighter#fullheart#vaughanadventures#nicubaby#beautifullyandwonderfullymade
We had so much fun at the Eve Pre•Party yesterday with all of you beautiful people! From glitter✨ + braids💆♀️ to king cake + fannie packs, we had so much fun helping you shop and get hyped up for the first big parade! Thank you so much to @cameoboutique for having us and to the fabulous ladies from @j.renee_colorstudio for adding a little sparkle to our day, literally! #fullheart#itscarnivaltime
Big step today 🛁🐶 #tubbytime ! He was a little unsure of the experience but what dog isn’t. Today is day 4 and we are like bffs ! 💕He follows me everywhere and the kisses don’t end. (He may have even found his way into our bed for snuggles) Proud of the progress he is showing towards us in such a short time. #rescue#adoption#fullheart#dogs#furbaby#puppy#jindo
Before and After... swipe for side by sides!
This transformation has been so much more than physical. My mindset is so much healthier, I haven’t treated this as a quick fix it’s been the beginning of a long term commitment to myself to be healthier inside and out. ✨I’ve started waking up earlier to get in my workout before my workday which has drastically improved my mood and my productivity. ✨ I have found balance in enjoying foods I want and fueling my body purposefully. ✨ I have found a huge reward in helping others get started on the same journey!
Thank you @fullheartwellness for inspiring me to get started, and to get out of my own way. Thank you at @shaunt for pushing me everyday, and for making this transformation so much more than just physical, I appreciate you! Thank you @ilanamuhlsteinrd for @2bmindset and giving me food freedom, I couldn’t have been this successful with out this price of the puzzle. You started this all for me!
Can’t wait for round 2!!!!

🍃He is ALWAYS enough🍃⠀
I don’t remember this all the time, but He never leaves me stranded in my thoughts......He enters into them without hesitation.....and lovingly reminds me.....and waits for me to listen......and for that, I am very thankful.⠀
“And though you have never seen him, yet I know that you love him. At present you trust him without being able to see him, and even now he brings you a joy that words cannot express and which has in it 🍃a hint of the glories of Heaven;🍃 and all the time you are receiving the result of your faith in him—the salvation of your own souls.” ~ 1 Peter 1 (Phillips)⠀
If you know me you know I love collecting art as much as I love creating it.
This beautiful custom drawing was made for me by the incredibly talented @artbycamara (go check her out !) for an art trade. I love trading with other artists of any sort, so if you’re ever interested give me a shout.
My heart is always so full when I get to connect and collaborate with other artists! It’s the best feeling.
So blessed with my life as today is just another day my heart is pouring gratitude to the universe for allowing me to do what I love every single day.
Thank you Camara for this lovely art trade! I can’t wait for the drawing to get here so I can hang it up and look at it every day!

😭😭 tiny babe
Some of my fav memories are in these jammies. I still crawl into them and I swear you can feel the love they’ve been through! Forever reminiscing the last 6-7 months as they’ve flown by. I’m so thankful I did fresh 48 pics and have these raw (IV in and all) pictures to help me remember such precious days. It gets tough here and there and I’ve had my share of frustrations- with more to come, I’m sure- but it is all SO. WORTH. IT. 👏🏻
A chapter in my journey closes today. This afternoon, I will complete the last workout of my 6 week program.
This morning I started a new one, though. ❤️ We had track practice with students from my school. I was asked to lead a strength circuit. In a room full of students and their parents, there I was—doing the things I’ve worked through the past 6 weeks in my living room—ALONE. 😂 Things I thought WTF about during my first week, I was demonstrating and coaching our athletes to do. What a powerful feeling that is—seeing your work come to frutition.
It all comes full circle.
If you asked me 6 months ago if this is what my life would be like, I probably would’ve laughed in your face. Funny thing about growth—it never stops & it takes you places you’d never imagine. I am beyond blessed.
Have you ever been so thankful for your life your heart is bursting?!?! ❤️ You guys I have so many things to be grateful for I can’t even begin to list them all! Here are just a few of mine:
1️⃣My boys! Watched home videos today and boy do I love them?
2️⃣Coffee- I mean who isn’t grateful for a warm cup on a cold morning☕️
4️⃣Positive feedback from people I’m helping- really is a blessing ❤️
What are you grateful for today??
"My four-year-old Jane looked up and said, 'Mom... thank you for getting Theresa for us.' In that moment, my heart swelled with gratitude for our au pair and the love she shows to our two daughters, ages two and four. As any parent of toddlers or young children already knows, this simple statement packs a lot of power. We’ve struggled finding a consistent caretaker or babysitter that our children would look forward to spending time with and would actually run to, instead of the usual teary-eyed and emotional departures we’ve grown accustomed to." - Host Mom Emily

I am grounded.
This week’s theme is all about feeling grounded, stable, connected to earth, present into your body.
Self care has a big role in helping you feel centered. To help you come back to yourself, instead of releasing energy left and right, without a purpose (which can bring to anxiety and feeling rubbish). These are few tips that will get you grounded:
🌳 set your goals - it can be daily, weekly or monthly, whatever works best for you. Write them down - it will really help the process of manifestation - and write both small and big ones. The small ones will be, often, the easiest ones to achieve and once you tick those off, it will fuel and motivate you to keep going.
🌳 unplug yourself. From everything. Start with 30 minutes a day - no podcasts or Netflix either, no books. Be with yourself. Walk around the house or meditate. Take the time to observe your thoughts. At first it will be uncomfortable but it will get better and feel so good!
🌳 find a way to connect with nature - walk barefoot, lay on the ground, hug a tree. Actually bringing yourself closer to the earth will, of course, make you feel more grounded.
🌳 change your food - if you’ve been eating lots of sugare and processed foods then it’s time to switch to more nourishing ones, integrate especially root vegetables, nuts and seeds.
🌳 express gratitude - one of the reasons why I started the weekly themes with gratitude is because it can help with everything! Like in this case: to realize you’re surrounded by things worth being grateful for it will bring you back to reality and stop the negativity that goes on in your mind.
🌳 breathe, deeply and mindfully.
These of course are just a few things you can do, but that’s a start! 😘
What makes you happy?
Leaving aside other people. What is the fills your heart with joy? What activities/hobbies/experiences gives you sparkly eyes?
It seems such a simple question and it should be, but is it? With such busy lives it’s easy to have an excuse to not explore and find what makes you happy, proud of yourself, excited!
So here’s a task for you, meditate/journal about this question. Dig deeper inside you and if you’re still struggling, a good way to get things moving is to do a google research/buy a month of ClassPass/intro offer at a studio and start trying things! Even stuff you don’t think is for you. You might surprise yourself! 😉
Happy Monday gorgeous beings ♥️
Last day of #balancingtoinvert is yogi choice!
DISCLAIMER - I could hold this pose for literally two second before falling but I like it and it’s kind of progress so... 😇

Today is the last day of my 37th week. WHAT?! I’ve officially started telling people I’m due in two weeks when they ask and it’s absolutely nuts. I almost feel like I’m lying because how can that even be true? Just grateful to have made it this far. I know this is such a unique time in our lives and I’m trying to slow down and soak it up while I can but I’m just SO ready to meet this baby. @nbyham80#37weekspregnant#fullterm#fullheart#fulljarofpickles
