Thank you, Jesus, for unanswered prayers. I have been feeling so overwhelmed lately by the prayers that God didn’t answer. I have always wanted my children to be close in age and when that prayer didn’t happen I felt like God failed me. When I prayed so hard for us to be matched with a sweet little 14 month old and it didn’t happen, I thought my prayers weren’t heard again. Sunday after Sunday I cried out to Jesus in church and every night I’d cry out in prayer, and still my prayers weren’t answered. But, Harper, she is the answer to every prayer that went unanswered since we were blessed with Cole. Seeing the way he cares for her and loves her makes me get why God didn’t grant my hearts desire when I wanted Him to and every single day that I get to spend with my two precious babies is a day that I will be grateful for all of the unanswered prayers. .
Choose your hard.
Holding this pose for 1 minute straight is hard. Do you know what’s harder?
Laying on the couch lifeless with no energy. Watching my bonus daughter play without me because I had no desire or motivation to get up. Watching my weight increase because I was too lazy to cook so we ordered out multiple times a week.
THAT IS HARDER THAN WORKING OUT FOR 20 MINUTES!

Anslee was fortunate enough to have an action photographer at her game on Friday evening. These are just a few of his shots of her. I love how they all capture her heart and intensity for the game! #baller#littlebutfierce#gameface

And though she be but little,
She is fierce.
Shakespeare couldn't have said it better if he had said it about Snip!
She is the fiercest horse I have ever had the pleasure to swing a leg over.
You will never be let down or not get the job done on this spitfire.
I mean look at that stride, she is barely 15 hands and covers more ground than horses twice her size!
Snip is my go to horse for just about everything around the Ranch.
She is one heck of a mountain horse, chase cattle,
Take her to town for a cow sorting.
She is one in a million ❤️

Quick lunch for me before we head off to swim lessons 🙋🏻♀️ half term means more running around not less!!
This program has been all about comparing yourself to yourself. How are YOU digging deeper? How are YOU pushing through the hard? How are YOU moving forward?
Today starts the last week of the first round of this program- and the workout was verrrry similar to Day 1. So Shaun insisted- instead of comparing your numbers to last week, compare to Day 1.
So... 😳😳😳💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 It’s amazing what only a few weeks of hard work can do! I absolutely KILLED my numbers from day 1!
You don’t have to compare yourself to anyone else. You don’t have to be good enough for anyone else. You just have to be good enough for YOU.
Starting another round of this program next week! Want to join me??? 😊

Coolest Experience! Before this I never thought about I could take part in any championships. Karate makes my life different and I'm really glad that I chose to join the Leeds Uni Karate society. Everyone is so nice, friendly and positive!❤️ Looking forward to next year's #BUCS and I definitely need more practice!💪🥊

Well, today was supposed to be my last chemo....again. But that’s all been put on hold, and I’ll instead be having surgery tomorrow to remove my expanders due to reoccurring staph infections that have kept me on antibiotics for weeks, and eventually put me in the hospital. So as I mourn the loss of my girls...again, and start the reconstruction process over from the beginning, I’m at peace that this is the right decision. Nothing is worth the risk of an infection that I just can’t fight off. I had my meltdown, and now I’m ready to be fierce again. #breastcancerwarrior#fightlikeagirl#littlebutfierce
I’m going to guess very few people know this about me...
I usually do a good job of putting on a good front about not caring what people think of me. I say I don’t care, if I’m bothered by what someone says to me I don’t outwardly show it but man do I spend forever thinking about it.. questioning myself and my choices, wondering what I could do differently to be more accepted.
Growing up I always wanted to fit in but I always felt like the odd ball out. I can’t tell you how many groups of “friends” I was a part of just so I could feel accepted.
I used to never leave the house without makeup on & my hair done because I thought if I was pretty enough.. more people would like me and that I’d fit in. I almost didn’t buy these glasses ((that I love)) out of fear that other people wouldn’t like them.
I found myself doing SO MANY OTHER THINGS for other people’s approval and when I sit here and think about it.. it makes me so sad. I don’t want ANYONE to ever feel that way.
My new journey is showing me that I don’t have to live that way. I am my own person. I’m learning everyday to stick up for myself & not give a damn about what people say or think of me. It’s hard but man is it freeing.
I’m not perfect and I never will be but I’ll be dang certain to make sure I help other ladies know their worth and to walk along side them and help them grow as I’m growing.
When I say this is more than a workout program.. I mean it. It’s shaping a new way of life for me, a better frame of mind, a new since of belonging I’ve been looking for.
If any of this relates to you then we need to chat because girl.. stop living your life for other people. It’s not healthy in any way shape or form. DM me so I can help free you of those chains!
