Starting my week off right with a workout, booty day! - I had a hard time getting back into working out because I thought I had to go to the gym. I signed up for a family gym with a daycare but I would end up overthinking Jasper’s nap and feeding time and wouldn’t leave. - Working out from home and staying connected with an group of incredible and empowering women has helped me get back into my groove. - This is what my workouts look like now. Toys all over. Stops for feedings and naps. Pauses for laughs and giggles as he army crawls. And being okay that it takes a bit longer than I thought. - My next challenge group is starting soon and if you are looking to get support while on your fitness journey, share recipes or just have questions in general feel free to message me! -

E G G - F R E E. B R E A K F A S T. I’ve been without eggs since February and, believe it or not, I have never felt better! I was reluctant to give them up, but after plenty of research it was obvious my skin would be better off without them. Here is an example of a filling, balanced egg- free breakfast of chicken sausage, fried potatoes, and fruit!
😍 Double the chubs 😍 while I’ve got your attention, the average baby goes through 5,000-8,000 diapers until being toilet-trained and plastic based disposable diapers take between 200-500 years to breakdown in a landfill. I’ve been open about how I mix disposable diapers from @purebornuae (made of bamboo fiber) and reusable diapers like these cloth ones the boys have on from @blueberrydiapers because that’s what works for our family - economically, environmentally and for our health. I’d love to know if this is something that you’ve thought about as well? More on www.imannaroberts.com including a #plasticfreejuly podcast with Sofi from @eggs_n_soldiers

Y’all. I’m gonna go ahead and tag myself here. I need this reminder mid point in the summer.
My kids have been asking to come out of their rooms since 6am. “Nope. Never. Don’t even think about it.” And now at 7am the green tick tick clock went off, and they’re coming out for the day— the entire, long, daddy went to workday— day.
My oldest is requesting vanilla wafers and Blue Bell ice cream for breakfast because he didn’t get it for dessert last night. But he didn’t get it for dessert last night because he didn’t eat his dinner. And around and around we go each day on this. My youngest had an accident last night, which is no big deal. That happens. “It’s okay buddy!” Only, unbeknownst to us, he decided to sleep on the floor last night. So, that’s a bit more complicated to clean up... It’s now just after 7:30am, but I feel like it should be at least 2pm. Right?
I’m dedicating this post to every mom who doesn’t usually stay home with kids all day but is doing so this summer. We are rockstars. It’s a lot easier to speak kind words Monday- Friday from 3:30-7:30pm than from 7:30am-7:30pm. And to those moms who homeschool or have itty bitty kiddos home all day every day, you are freaking saints. Absolute saints. Seriously, please invite me over for coffee when you get your castle in Heaven.
Instead of showering for the day before my husband left for work, I opted for a 20 minute quiet time. (Because, let’s be honest, not only am I not going anywhere important today, and morning quiet times are why God invented dry hair shampoo and body spray for moms.)
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, Oh Lord, my rock and my redeemer. (Psalm 19:14) The words of a person's mouth are deep waters, a flowing river, a fountain of wisdom (Proverbs 18:4) @letterfolk#letterboard#motherhood#motivationmonday#survivingsummer#withahappyheart

Apparently I live in a bed & breakfast 🥞 she grabbed the pan, cut up the hotdog with the knives pictured, and placed everything in to be cooked. The only thing she didn’t do was turn on the stove because she knows it’s hot and hot things you don’t touch! So fiercely independent she is! I helped her heat up the hot dogs and that’s what she ate for breakfast lol. Maybe next time wait for mommy to wake up before breakfast gets started 🤪🤪🤪
Começando a semana tentando acabar com as pendências da foto anterior.
E para variar um pouco atrasada na tendência #toalhanacabeça mas não poderia deixar de postar minha versão plena, escolhendo a paleta de cores do projetinho que estamos fazendo para a parede do berço do baby3 x realidade materna e algumas almofadadas inevitáveis incluídas. 😂
Foto inspirada na top @lannemachado_ amiga do insta super por dentro das tendências 😘

~Retail management & mental health~
My original profession was a translator. The best job I ever had. I traveled so much and met some amazing people. When I married my husband, because of his job, we used to move every 18 to 24 months. One job I could pick up where ever we moved to, was retail. Eventually I moved up to middle management; store manager etc. I worked for this high end, high street furniture & clothing company for a few years. Those were the worst years of my retail career. I, as well as my Spanish, Venezuelan & Italian colleagues were exposed to premeditated racial bullying. This was later taken to a hearing and the person in question and her accomplice were prosecuted and disciplined.
Today, I went back to that place. I know an old lady who still works there. Her only daughter lives in Japan; my friend is quite often lovely. I wanted to give her a hug. As I walked in, I saw one of the bullies. Immediately, I had such an awful, uncomfortable feeling in my stomach. Almost a sense of panic. She was still condescending. She was surprised that I was still here and that I hadn’t gone back to my country. I felt so uncomfortable in my stomach. Then I felt so cross with myself that she still makes me feel so uncomfortable. I am nearly 41! But I suppose the hurt she caused me and my friends was quite deep. When I worked with her, I had postnatal/postpartum depression. She fully played on that. Now that I am sitting on my own, having my coffee, with my name misspelled yet again 😂 I realise that I am doing the best job in the world. I chose to leave that horrid place. I chose to completely change my career. I am so happy working with children and being my own boss. She is still there. She looked stressed and aged. I forgive her. My uncomfortable feeling in my tummy is slowly going. It’s ok to feel that. Yes, I am 40, but I am human, with very complex emotions. #mentalhealth#motherhood#payitforward#forgiveness#kindness#love#retail#retailmanagement#manager#adultbullying#bullying#bully#wellness#mindfulness#love#parenthood#parenting#expat#workingmum#workingmom#mompreneur#mumpreneur#wellbeing
It’s been a week since this sweet babe joined us and made us a family of 5 💕 We’re slowly settling in and adjusting to our new normal but I know it will all come with time. For now, we’re paying extra attention to the older babes and enjoying these newborn snuggles while we embrace the chaos 👊🏻 These adorable dolls from @cuddleandkind are not only the cutest things I’ve ever seen, but for every doll purchased, ten meals are given to children in need 💕 #cuddleandkind#clevelandblogger#mommyblogger#summerbaby
Our family in the orchard by our home that we spend countless evenings at. Thank you @ashleygodinphotography for capturing us so well as always ❤️

Long nights feeding, comforting & caring. Busy days of much the same. My mind full of thoughts hoping I’m doing everything right for you, my heart full of love cherishing every moment I get cuddling you. Every minute spent with you becoming my favourite the newborn stage, I’ve been told to savour it ❤️
Mum bun in full swing, no make up, dark circles, permanent pajamas and bras with boobie clips. Safe to say I’ve embraced mum life and loving every moment of it! ❤️

'To all the moms out there, I was playing for you, and I tried...I just feel like telling all the moms, I had such a long struggle to come back and it was really difficult, and honestly I feel like if I can do it, they can do it. I'm just that person, that vessel that's saying 'you can be whatever you want to be'...' well done Serena Williams 💕 #strongmother rg @theglowdotcom
