Similarly, when I say “clean up your toys” I think they hear “dump all the Legos on the ground.”
Who can relate? 🙋‍♀️

We took a trip to Ikea yesterday for some party supplies and apparently everyone else in OC did too! But let me tell you...this girl is pure joy! In a lot of ways she is the exact opposite of me. I have a hard time opening up to new people or reaching out to make new connections but not this one. Give her a snack cup full of Cheerios and she will laugh and chat it up with anyone who will pay her any attention. I hope her personality never changes and I hope to grow to be more like her because almost a year later, I'm still so in awe of her and who she's becoming.

Trying to squeeze in a shower , between breakfast and The last Mouseketeer waking up !! Since my big girls woke up when I was creeping out of the room to get my clothes. I had to do something quick , thanks to my quick thinking and IPad Pro, I had this Bright idea ... “Rosie, can you get in with your sister while mommy gets in the bath?” #momwinsagain #childrenofig #appleipadpro #lifesaver #playyard #sisters #sistergirls #bestfriendsforever #ilovemysister #goodmorninggirls #prettygirls #babygirls #mommoments #mommingsohard #momhacks #reallifemotherhood #thisismomming

GOAL!!!! Down 18.8 pounds 💪🏻💪🏻 started this journey on 12-7-17 at 138.8....my goal was to hit 120.0 by my 40th birthday 5-11-18, I reached my goal in 40 days! I will be skipping around the rest of the day 😁 I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF ❤️ and that’s such a great feeling. I haven’t been this weight since I was 18 years old. #ificandoityoucantoo #letsmotivateeachother #momsunite 👙 #fitnessmotivation #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #bbg #bbgprogress #bbgtransformation #bbgcommunity #bbgstronger #fbgcommunity #fbggirls #kaylaitsines #annavictoria #momsofinstagram #momswholift #weightloss #fitnessjourney #momshelpingmoms #momminainteasy #mommingit #mommingsohard #fitspo #fitmom #macrofriendly #bbgmoms

Burning the midnight oil, and wishing for one of these lattes... So excited to start the process of getting new carpet tomorrow! 😍 But that means lots of cleaning up tonight and finishing up the latest blog post. A mom’s work is never done, is it? 🙈 #mommingsohard

It’s amazing what trading cheese fries for kale will do for your body 🙈 In the middle picture I was so unhappy with my weight. It was a viscous cycle, I would get upset about how I much weight I was gaining & I’d go right to Dunkin Donuts & get 6 donuts YES 6! I’d eat them in the parking lot. I couldn’t even wait to get home. And if I was really “hungry” I’d go to Burger King & get a double bacon cheeseburger, large fries, large coke & large chicken fries. I’d eat it on my way to Dairy Queen where I’d get a large blizzard w/ pb cups, m&m’s, cookie dough, Heath & fudge. That’s a 3000 calorie meal in the matter of 45 min. Meanwhile that wasn’t a once a week thing. That was a very regular thing. HOLY 💩 All I have to say is thankfully I got off that one way train to heart attack-ville with a pit stop at Diabetes Town! Looking back I was in complete denial that I was struggling with emotional eating. Onwards and upwards ❤️ please know that I post these pics to maybe inspire 1 person who is having a tough time becoming their healthiest. I’m not looking for compliments and praise. I share my stories, which is embarrassing AF to keep it real. I am not effortlessly this small, I have to remind myself to fuel my body with what it deserves & bust my 🍑 every darn day! 💪🏻💪🏻 #fitnessmotivation #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #bbg #bbgprogress #bbgtransformation #bbgcommunity #bbgstronger #fbgcommunity #fbggirls #kaylaitsines #annavictoria #momsofinstagram #momswholift #weightloss #fitnessjourney #momslife #momshelpingmoms #momsworld #momshit #momsunite #momminainteasy #mommingit #mommingsohard #fitspo #fitmom #instagramfitness #fitnessaccountability #macrofriendly #bbgmoms

What was one reason your kiddo had a tantrum today...in public! .
.
Mine was because the doctor’s office didn’t have the sticker he wanted, and we left without a sticker because I’m the mean mom who reminded him it was his decision not to get one because he didn’t like any 🤦🏻‍♀️

Felt like a bit of an outcast parking my RZR at the park next to 10+ minivans!!!! 😂😂😂 Took advantage of my day off & tried to mom so hard!!! Jov and I did laundry, converted her crib to a toddler bed, played with Play-Doh, finger painted, made Valentine's crafts, read all the books, watched cartoons & played at the park.

Wowza, this day has worn me out!
It was an awesome mommy-daughter day though 😍
Annddddd this momma is officially ready to Netflix & chill lol.. Being a full time mom is tough. Working full time is tough. Another reason why I am grateful for Jov's amazing daycare, so she can have the best of both worlds. 💕 .

This little guy has been sick all weekend. Immersing me in all the “un-sexy” things about being a mom to an infant, you name it, it probably happened! 😳🤷‍♀️. But this little face with my favorite toothless smile makes it all worth it! We are finally on the upswing and loving these adorable jammies from @bluetoucanboutique ! #mommingsohard #7monthold #babyboy #babystyle

A year ago, I was finally feeling like I was getting myself and my fitness back after having Andy. A month later, I found out I was pregnant and thus ensued the worst morning sickness, followed by the stretching of my body to fit the twins.

Having pregnancies so close together did a number on me physically and mentally. Exercise has always been my friend, but the last 2.5 months of the twins pregnancy I simply didn’t want to workout- besides floating around in a pool to make me feel lighter.
Now that the twins are 3 and a half months and sleeping through the night 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻, I knew now would be a great time to hop on board with 80 day obsession. I am excited for it because it’s something for me. It is something I can work towards to keep me growing and excited while being a stay at home Mom to my 5 kids. I’m going to try my best with this program, but also forgive myself if I can’t do it 100% perfect.
Day 1/80 workout done, and so far nutrition is on point.
Ps: This is a picture of me and cute Josie #josephineKate #80dayobsession #day1

Sometimes I still can’t believe she exists & I get to raise her. I always wanted to be a Mom one day. The journey to get there was longer and more difficult than I thought it would be but she is SO worth it. #babymaggie #babyernest #ivfsuccess #mommingsohard

You guys I was able to find matching beanies for us & I crossed my fingers Dani would want to wear it. I have to ninja my way in to have her wear her bows, so you feel me! Anyway my plan was I wear it, her baby had one and then I would offer her one. She told me "me want hat please thank you" I was like OMG OMG will she actually wear it all night???! She totally did & even wore it the next day in 78 degree weather w a tank top & pants🤣😜#twinning as long as I can with her. Because one day she will prob think I'm embarrassing 🤦But honestly I don't know why she would be embarrassed of me 💁 .

I’ve never seen a life transformation that didn’t begin with the person in question getting rid of their own bullshit!

I said bye-bye to my own BS & made my health a priority and the results were life changing. Nothing beats feeling strong & confident!

2011
33 years old
155 lbs.
Working mom.
4 kids-6, 8, 12 & 14 years old.
Unhealthy, unhappy, zero exercise, very bad eating habits & insecure.

Now:
2018
39 years old
120 lbs.
Working mom.
4 kids-13, 15, 19 & 21 years old.
Strong, happy, exercising regularly, healthy eating habits & CONFIDENT!

On the menu tonight was turkey meatballs, I found them in the meat department at Walmart. I wasn't too impressed with them. I was going to get Italian chicken sausages but there was corn syrup among a long list of other ingredients. Spaghetti squash instead of noodles, I was liked them...more than zoodles too. And some Italian quinoa mixed in.
