I think this is where I am on this Monday, and I think that's all right. We can't always be 100%. Seriously, if anyone tells you differently, they're lying.

Now, even though I'm not giving today my all, I do want to give YOU a reminder. This month is crazy y'all! We have a first birthday next Sunday 😭, a ninth anniversary πŸ’, Christmas πŸŽ„, and a ministry trip to Mexico πŸ‡²πŸ‡½, all before the new year!! I don't want YOU to miss out on an amazing January group because of the hustle and bustle of the times. We will start on the 8th and it's gonna be awesome. My days may be full, but I make time to reply to those messages in my inbox, so message away!!

Now, I'm off to be mediocre this evening. What does your Monday night hold? πŸ˜‚

SATURDAY!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ I'm so grateful for an amazing workout this morning while my sweet husband had quality time with our boys.

My trainer said something today that has me thinking. She said we can all do anything for sixty seconds. I've heard other trainers say we have inner power or we are "enough". Lovelies, as I reflect on how I was SUPER pregnant one year ago, I believe we actually can't do anything on our own...I'd go as far to say we are actually NOT enough.

But Jesus. ❀️ It's true, we were made in the image of our amazing Creator. He did stick some intrinsic motivation and desire in each of our souls. However, we need Him, friends. In everything. ✨ I think about the beginning of my labor last year, and I know all of the energy in all of those circumstances was from Jesus. ✨I think about the past several months journeying toward optimal health, and I give all glory and credit to Jesus. ✨As I get ready to give my kiddos to my parents for the weekend, I think of my marriage. It's hard, friends! We are here, about to celebrate 9 years married, because of Jesus. Only because of Jesus.

You can do anything for 60 seconds. You do have inner power. You are enough. But it is ONLY because of Jesus. Now, what are you going to go do with that desire to thrive He has put inside of you? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜˜

Folks, this is so easy and delicious, and you can use any combo of veg. Today, we put potatoes, green beans, mushrooms, onion, and garlic covered in the oven for 30 min at 400. Then, we put eggs in boiling water for 6 minutes. Dinner is served! What's on your table on this Friday evening?

This wet and windy weather has us missing summer strolls along the beach - soft sand beneath our feet and a lovely warmth in the air.β €

God's plan is so amazing, y'all! He knew we would understand His love a bit more when we could love someone in a similar way that He loved us. ❀️

I am beyond grateful for this journey toward optimal health personally, and some days I can't believe it's my job to share it with others. One of the best parts is that I can share it on days like today when my boys are up during my workout and we have a busy day of homeschool fun planned!

If you'd love to learn a little more about what I do in a zero pressure convo, I'm thinking about going live in my story tomorrow (Thursday, Dec. 7) at 7:00pm central time. What is there to lose? 10 minutes of your time? What is there to gain? I promise, I don't even have space to list it all here. Feel free to throw any questions at me that you may want me to answer during that time!! My comment space and inbox are always open for YOU! 😘

Apparently rolling around in wet moss is the most fun ever!

Final day exploring before heading home

As our baby boy gets closer to being a year old (😱), we've been slowly transitioning his main milk source. For a time, he had breastmilk and homemade goats milk formula. Now, he only nurses in the morning, and gets half formula, half full-fat goats milk in each bottle. When we were on a lookout for good probiotics and vitamin supplements to be sure he was getting everything he needs, we came across this. We have been pleased, so I wanted to share! ((There's also a sneak peek into our kitchen in my story today.)) This was a new journey for us since I nursed my oldest a bit longer and never dealt with formula at all. Have you found any baby vitamins you've been pleased with?

There's not much quite like day one of a new program. I LOOOVE new beginnings. I love change. Weird, I know. But seriously, it keeps life interesting and free from boredom. Our God designed us to like new beginnings! He offers us one every twenty four hours AND every seven days!! _____

On the road yesterday, my husband and I listened to a @focusonthefamily podcast. The speaker talked about how we spend two things in this life: time and money. We can save money, however, we can't save time. Whether we want to or not, we're going to spend every single minute.
____

How are we going to spend our minutes then? Intentionally or wastefully? During this holiday season, I encourage you to care for YOUR health so that you can spend the rest of your minutes wisely. Have energy, ability, and confidence as you navigate through these precious family moments!!

It's early, but the month will fly by! If you are interested in hopping into a group after the New Year, my inbox is open NOW. Use your minutes wisely and have your very own DAY ONE. ❀️
