I feel like I spend 50% of my day waiting in a car line for my children to either get done with school or whatever activity they are involved in at the time. Between 4 different schools, football, karate, yearbook club, hiking club, scouts and my teenagers job I may as well live in my car 🤷🏻‍♀️#momlife #stepmomlife #mom #stepmom #blendedfamily #momproblems

You don’t have to be perfect...you just have to start.  Do you work out with your significant other, your bestie or your kids?  Do you want to!?! CHECK THIS OUT!!!!!!
👇🏼
💪🏼
I’m so excited to start my new fitness program support group in October! They say losing weight/getting fit with a partner increases your chances of success...so in October I’m opening a two for one online Fit-Club! 👊
It’s all about strength & dropping bodyfat  for me this time and I’m looking for accountability partners. 💪🏼
❤️
I love being able to make delicious healthy foods that my whole family loves. 🥦
🥑 
And the food!  Every single recipe that I’ve made out of the included recipe program & book has been amazing and very, very easy to make! 😃 
Hey! Have you been thinking about getting healthier & making changes?  Why not join up and learn (or recommit) how not to diet, but change habits, eat well, get healthier, stronger & maybe gain a confidence boost and a stronger relationship to boot!
🤔
You know what?  It’s been 12 months for me doing these programs, changing the way I eat, changing my mindset about handling food situations - around family events, stress days, boredom or eating out.  It hasn’t been easy for me, it’s certainly been a re-learning process but I’ve kept off my original #15 weight loss (my hubby has kept of #35) and I’m amping things up for my next goal!
💪🏼. Whether you do the program I’m doing or you choose another, it all works together to get you a personalized plan perfect for YOU! 👊 
Let’s work out together in October to get you in the best shape of your life!  I KNOW it can happen.  You choose a nutrition plan to work best for you- examples: basic macros, portions, lower carb, intermittent fasting, timed nutrition...whatever direction you decide, we work together to make it happen the healthy way & you’re not alone, we do it together. 🙌. I’ve got links in my bio to get more info! 😁

This picture gives me so much joy! I Love all these little and not so little faces! They each bring so much energy and spirit into our home. When people hear that we have seven children their first response is “Wow, that is so many how do you do it?” When we first got married seven was so many! We were constantly counting heads to make sure they were all accounted for. I can say so far we have never lost one, although one did get left at the baseball field for about 5 min. So I think we are doing pretty good! As hard as being a mom and even harder being a step mom is I do love it! And I love these kids! I feel so blessed that my Father in Heaven in trusted these children to me! And since they are alive and happy we can’t be screwing it up too much! ❤️.

I am missing this camper so much! I am hoping we get to camp at least one more time before winterizing it, even if it’s gotten a lot cooler here this last week!
.
So this whole vegetarian thing!  Here’s the deal. I thought it would be easier to gradually get into it. Start by cooking a new meal a week, and cutting back on meat. So the week started and I planned for the first three meal without any meat and a new fried tofu stir fry recipe. It went real well (gotta remember we were eating meat 5 times a week if not more!!!) .
Then one night mid week, I sat there sipping on coffee and I just felt like it was an excuse. Not to say it’s a bad idea for anyone else wanting to do it that way! I’m talking about me here. I felt like that’s what I’d be doing if I was trying to quit smoking without really wanting too for real (I don’t smoke! I did before, and quitting is insanely hard so it’s just an exemple!!) but do you get what I mean? I just felt like why drag it on? So I grabbed one of my scribbling books and wrote down every vegetarian meal I already know how to cook, and every meal I could easily replace the meat in and realized the list was already way longer then I imagined it would be! So why wait! It’s my calling! And I keep saying I need to be present, so here it is. The week went by, and hubby kept asking me to come up with more meatless meal so I did. Then two weeks went by, and now three! .
I’ve been asking him if he wants me to cook meat and he’s like « meh! » do I’m like « ok then!» right? So he’s eaten meat maybe 3-4 times and me none. He’s even eaten breakfast sausages in front of me and I didn’t feel like jumping across the table, stealing it from him and having a bite (asking him for a bite probably would have been ok too but I felt I needed to be dramatic here). Anywho, that’s  that! 😘

The bast way to stay connected is to be involved; especially in a blended family.  I have 50/50 shared custody so things like picture day I miss out on and it’s HARD.  But, turning a negative into a positive is effort worth spent!  I volunteered at the school today to help with their upper-grade picture day.  We didn’t get much time together, but I got to be present in her life, found a way to do so, and I know that matters to her.  Showing up always matters.  Don’t let the other parents bully you into absence.  I like to make a point to be present at school because communication between households is sketchy at best, and so I am better able to keep a pulse on my kid’s school life this way and knowing what’s going on in the classroom definitely makes me a more helpful parent.  That’s my blended family advice for the night; if you’re able to help out at your child’s school, do it.

"In every disagreement with your spouse remember there is not a winner and a loser. You are united in everything, you will either win together or lose together. Work together to find a solution so you both win." Have you realized sometimes you can appear to “win” an argument, but in the long run, you still lose? You may feel better after winning. But when our spouse feels like a loser, it’s our relationship that will ultimately suffer. Trying to win is natural and makes us feel strong and secure. Nobody likes to lose, and everybody wants to triumph. But striving to win is disastrous for a relationship. In fact, it is one of the key reasons for divorce. It turns our spouse into our opponent and the relationship—despite our love and commitment—into a battleground. Fear and pride often interfere with our empathetic listening skills. We are afraid that striving to understand our spouses will put us at a disadvantage. But attempting to win does not really protect us. It increases the chances that we will get emotionally hurt in a stupid battle. When we empathize with our wives, she feels respected, which decreases conflict and increases the chances for reconciliation. We will demonstrate unexpected creativity and resilience—and can resolve seemingly intractable conflicts and avoid the nightmare of divorce—when we are committed to understanding, rather than winning, no one loses in a relationship, everyone wins.

There are many things I look back on now that I wish I knew when I was younger.
.
I keep hearing doing these things can be good for you etc.
So here goes.
.
Hello stubborn child,
Dont focus so much on the people around you - pay more attention to yourself and the things that make you happy. You spend too much time focusing on what other people think of you. 
Men are assholes. Girls can be bitches. But stay true to yourself and those genuine people will weed themselves out. 
Dont waste your energy on people that dont matter.
If they exhaust you, let them go.
If they make you feel bad about you, let them go.
I know you're smarter than the rest - I know you know that high school doesnt matter - you're smart. Hold onto that. 
Dont forget that. You have alot to offer.
Be smart - dont finance a car.
Dont buy that thing you know you dont need. 
Spend more time and your hard earned money more on trips and vacations. You can live without that one game you'll only play once or twice - I promise. 
Boys will say mean things about you - despite what you may think. I know - it sucks. But boys will be boys - dont lower yourself to their level - move on. They didnt deserve you anyway. 
Drink less coffee - it'll stop working the way you want it too.
Find help for anxiety sooner - dont wait - trust me - its worth it. 
LOVE your damn family - your grandparents, parents, aunts, and uncles. All of them - so much - show your appreciation. They're your back bone whether you think so or not!
.
.
.
.
Love future me.
Keep kicking.

You spend too much time focusing on what other people think of you. Men are assholes. Girls can be bitches. But stay true to yourself and those genuine people will weed themselves out. Dont waste your energy on people that dont matter. If they exhaust you, let them go. If they make you feel bad about you, let them go. I know you're smarter than the rest - I know you know that high school doesnt matter - you're smart. Hold onto that. Dont forget that. You have alot to offer. Be smart - dont finance a car. Dont buy that thing you know you dont need. Spend more time and your hard earned money more on trips and vacations. You can live without that one game you'll only play once or twice - I promise. Boys will say mean things about you - despite what you may think. I know - it sucks. But boys will be boys - dont lower yourself to their level - move on. They didnt deserve you anyway. Drink less coffee - it'll stop working the way you want it too. Find help for anxiety sooner - dont wait - trust me - its worth it. LOVE your damn family - your grandparents, parents, aunts, and uncles. All of them - so much - show your appreciation. They're your back bone whether you think so or not! . . . . Love future me. Keep kicking. . . . #confessionsofshe #personalblogger #youcandoit #blog #confessions #deepconfessions #reallife #confessionsofacoffeeaddict #confessionsera #confessionsofablogger #confessionsofabackpacker #confessionsforteens #ConfessionsofaHOE #confessionsaccount #confessionsofabrokenheart #advice #stepmoms #womencommunity #community #womenforwomen #blendedfamily #storyteller #letter #youngerself #reflection #happy #love

I never to know what to expect when having a conversation with my ex or my husband’s ex. But when they say things that make you go wtf, silence is the best response. •

Happy 17th Birthday Age!!! I can’t say it’s been easy, but it has most definitely been worth it. •
Regardless how stubborn you are and how long it took to let me in, I always knew you had an amazing heart!!!
•
I’m so grateful I have the blessing of watching you grow into the young man you are becoming.
•
You’re so appreciative, sweet, charismatic, funny, loving, real and smart, oh and you have some pretty good dance moves too! 😂

Praying your day has been as amazing as YOU!!!
I love you more and more everyday!!!

This is me.... little man and I went to a breastfeeding play group and boy wasn’t he playful. Needless to say fell asleep on the way to Walmart. I debated not to stop but I had to for dinners sake...
.
.
Put him in the carrier and fell right back to sleep. So did the shopping in peace and even trolled around so he could sleep. Checked out and thought he was going to wake up but nope! So I sat in the back seat with him in the carrier for another 30 min 🤪 .
.
Then again for my sanity I nursed him before driving home! It was a good play date because he slept for almost 2 hours 🙌🏻

Today has been an awesome day all around... even in the car (insert dancing move) 😂

The verdict is in... totally worth battling the interwebs traffic to order our share of pumpkin spice liquid gold! Even without any tweaking — just blending with ice and water — it was pumpkin pie in a glass!! I so don’t wanna share but I did promise some samples, didn’t I?

How in love are we with this logo for the leggings?! 😍🤓🙊 Once the final product get here and we finalize the design and fabrics used they will each get the logo put on. We will only be getting a select amount of them in and based off of the pilot group they will go super quick! Do you guys want VIP announcements for when they are about to drop?! 🔥⚡️#athleticwear #leggingsarepants

I constantly worry about how my stepson is adapting to our unique family... I try my best to educate him on blended families and try to instill morals in him stronger than anything that could ever come between what his heart feels. Not every family is alike. I worry that he may feel indifferent, out of place or embarrassed. Tonight, every ounce of doubt and fear has been removed.. Love is love and our little boy has grasped that. #fullheart#blendedfamily#loveoverload#steppylovin#bonousmom#1stgrader 💙

"Just taking an opportunity to vent anonymously SMs - please bear with me. I'm at the end of my tether and just need to express myself. Dear BM, I hope you're proud. Does it give you great pleasure to see that your little boy is clearly emotionally traumatized? How can you call yourself a mother when you sit idly by and watch him weep. He was so upset after talking to his father recently and your inaction is blatant negligence of his mental and spiritual health. You never mediate - you simply turn a blind eye. I pity your deep-rooted resentment towards DH - it prevents you from accepting accountability for your choices, effectively co-parenting and achieving clarity. After nearly a decade of these battles, you disgust me as a woman and vitally, as a mother. Our role is to protect our children - not to execute our selfish ulterior motives. Their happiness should bring us joy - not jealousy. Your decisions from the past has caused such heartache and obliterated an innate and - imperative relationship between father and son. Substituting a father figure doesn't negate from the fact that you should support a healthy relationship between DH and your son. Being separated is irrelevant in the scheme of things. Specifically, in this case, you have a father who only wants to be involved. What pathetic excuse do you have for ruining this? May karma come swiftly and justly into your life. I wish you no ill will but, no human being can continue in life to be a despicable specimen of humanity without karmic ramifications. Yours sincerely, One emotionally depleted stepmother" . . . . . . . #stepmom  #stepmother  #stepmomadvice #bonusmom #stepchildren  #stepkids  #stepdaughter  #stepson #bonuskids  #blendedfamily  #family  #bonusson #bonusdaughter  #love  #stepparenting  #parenting #coparenting  #bonusfamily  #stepparents #stepparent  #marriage  #relationship  #son #daughter  #children  #kids  #mom  #dad  #child #like

I've lost over 70 pounds. I'm ready to tone and gain some dang muscle! Who wants to join me on this journey?! Losing fat and gaining muscle is the dream. I'm not saying we are going to look like the hulk (although if you want to I'll help you with that too!) But I'm totally saying we are gonna look HOT. .
.
Im looking for 5 more people to join me in my boot camp this October.  30 minute workouts only four times a week and cheat meals built into the meal plans! It's the perfect plan for all of us busy people! If you're waiting to have enough time to get healthy...well, this is it. You'll never have enough time but considering how flexible this program is, it'll make it easier. Plus you can do it all at home. Boom. .
.
Fall into fitness with me. Pm me your favorite emoji (or comment it below) and I'll give you the deets. Let's do This!
