🙋🏻‍♀️My wish list: master closet, master bathroom, and not a lot of updates needed. . 🙋🏻‍♂️Daniel’s wish list- garage, single family home, yard . This first house met our lists except for being a single family. But when I first saw it online, I knew I could convince Daniel to go take a look at it because it was an end unit with a big yard, garage and completely updated. When we first toured the house, it was a rainy day, but the house was still so bright with natural light! . We bought this house before we got married and Daniel moved in first. After we got married it was special to live together in our first home 🏡We brought our first puppy Effie home to this house, brought Jacob home here, and walked the stairs and hallways through many sleepless nights with him. . We knew this was our starter home but didn’t expect our next home to come along so quickly. In 18 days, we will be moving on to our next family home. A home we can grow into. A home that neither of us had to comprise on. . So yes, the next few weeks will be whirlwind with packing, Christmas and then our big move, but oh what joy it’ll be! . 🏡What’s a feature of your home that you’re just in love with? Mine is the natural light and my master closet ❤️
Official BUMP update 😉 . At just over #15weeks I have already gained about 8 lbs despite being sick the first several weeks, but I am pretty damn confident that most of that is holding steady in my boobs 🙄🤣 . Most days I feel like I am bigger than I actually am...aka when I saw this pic I was like “that’s it 🤔” My regular jeans aren’t interested in fitting me anymore and oddly I am feeling pretty okay about it. 🤷🏼‍♀️ . I have been asked lately if I fear this pregnancy; if I fear the inevitable weight gain or the potential depression again since I am so open about how much I struggled the first time around. The answer to that is no. I am not fearful of the inevitable because I am not the same person I was 4 years ago. My mind is in a much stronger place. I have put so much work and effort into understanding my fears and working toward getting past them. I remember the fear and despair I felt during and after, but I also remember how I conquered once I put a little faith in myself. ✨ . This time, sure I am eating cookies and ice cream. Yes I am also eating all the veggies. And yes I am still pushing play and moving 4-5 days a week. I being mindful. I am listening to my body and I am embracing this season with the healthier perspective. Remember friends ~ the past is your lesson, it doesn’t define you unless you let it. The present is your engine 🔥 and your future ~ that’s your motivation 💋 📷 @jasonsphotoshop . . . . . . . . . . . #bumpupdate #soontobegirlmom #15weekspregnant #soontobemomof2 #pregnantbelly #workingpregnantmom #thirtysomethingmom #csectionmom #boymommy #toddlermom #babytwoontheway #growingbabytwo #springbabygirl #momof3yearold #womenempoweringwomen #healthypregnancy #fitishmom #fitishpregnancy #fuckexcuses #maternitypics #maternityclothes #maternitystyle #secondtrimester
I won’t lie- sleep has not been my friend lately. 😴 I’ve been exhausted balancing everything and then at night, I’m in pain because of my back and toss and turn all night waking up 4-5 times. I don’t do caffeine because I can’t stand teas or coffees and try to avoid pop or energy drinks because let’s face it- who knows what is in those! Usually, I suck it up, remain slightly crabby and stumble through the day. Today is different. I felt the energy decrease and reached for Energize! Now, I know I can focus on work, get my workout in later and still do mommy duty! 😘 Need help with your energy levels? Comment 🔥
This mama is under construction again!! This is my "before" photo!! See you all with my "after" photo in 3 weeks! ✌ . . Just because it's Christmas doesnt mean I will throw out my hard work and not go through with my challenge group. 🤷‍♀️ Why wait for the new year to make a positive change? 🤔 . . You are looking at a mom who is proud of how far she has come and is proud to still wear her stretch marks... they remind me every day where I was and how far I have come! 🙏❤ . . I've made so many positive changes in my life and have become a much better wife and mom because of it! 🙌😘 . . Why are you waiting for a new year to become a happier and better you? 🤔🙋‍♀️
This is what my typical lunch break looks like nowadays. 🥗 I usually don't get to eat lunch until 2 or 3 because I am busy feeding my toddler, breastfeeding and nursing my sick dog to take his meds and eat. 🤱🧒🏼🐕 My baby loves to touch me constanly so I have adapted to babywearing or eating on the floor with him in my lap. 👶🏻 Going to the bathroom I am never alone my dogs will follow me or my toddler will come in there to play.🚽 I never have time to sit down and watch tv or do leisure activities because there is always piles of laundry, dishes and toys to pick up. 🖥 I can see how taking the time to care for myself or even eat can be put on the back burner 😞 But I constantly have to remind myself to take a break and eat and drink something🍽. Especially since I am breastfeeding. 🤱 But of course I want to eat healthy clean food to give me that natural energy. 🍏🍉 Yes I do this everyday without a drop of coffee😉 So it is important for my family that I take the time every week to meal prep to make these days as a Stay at home mom easier🍱 Because out of all the "jobs" I have had this one is the hardest but most rewarding . 😍😍😍
“When we fulfill our function, which is to truly love ourselves and share love with others, then true happiness sets in.” — Eight months ago, if I would’ve read that anywhere I would’ve laughed and kept scrolling because eight months ago I loved myself a little less than I do today and was way more concerned with giving my love to everyone around me. But eight months I took a chance and decided to invest in myself and begin what would be yet another attempt at losing the unwanted baby weight plus some. During this time I’ve realized that loving people means nothing if you don’t love yourself. Have you heard the phrase fill your cup first? That’s exactly what I started to do eight months ago and I’ve never been happier or more in love with myself! Not only have I filled my cup, and lost 28 pounds (transformation pic coming tomorrow) but I’ve gotten myself into such a positive place mentally AND financially! I feel amazing, my mind is healthy and from coaching and sharing my journey while starting women on theirs I’ve even been able to gift a child in need this Christmas! — #holigains started TODAY, and the girls have started off in a strong note! Why wait for January when you can join us now and already be 5-10 pounds lighter come January 1st?!

You can find us in jammies + yoga pants most days, but the snuggle + grind is real around here. Thankful for Monday’s with #TheRhettMan - - - - - #6monthspostpartum #boymomma #boymommy #boymomsrock #midwestmom #firsttimemommy #postpartumjourney #breastfeedingmom #breastfeedingjourney
Happy Monday! 💕 you’ve got this!!
The BEST way to start the week. Happy Monday! 😊
So many times I wish I had a whole plethora of winter coats to choose from but then there are a few things I remember: 1.) I live in Texas. South South Texas. So there’s that. 2.) More coats would mean more coat space and I’m not about to give up my hoodie and scarf space for more coats. • • • • I got this red coat the winter I was pregnant with Caleb and needed a little more belly space for our trip to NYC 🤰🏻 🦃 it’s not a maternity coat (is there such a thing?!) AND it’s also a great rain coat! Sometimes NOT changing up routine and going back to what works for you WORKS! • • • • What are some of your favorite go-to pieces of clothing you’ll never get rid of? #workingmommylife
25 minutes is all it took to work up this sweat this morning. Next month 20 minutes and a step is all it will take! . You can find the time! You can do it at home! You can get results! You can improve your health! . You simply have to find a reason why! . That will push you . To MAKE the time... To DROP the excuses... To eat healthier... To be happier... To lead by example... To live a better life!

I love bringing my baby boy to the mall with me! It's especially wonderful around the holidays when there are such beautiful decorations for us both to enjoy! Going shopping at a mall can actually be a good way to do a walk or just get some extra steps in. Caleb at 9 months old and me. 🎄 I enjoy doing walks in addition to my other workouts #ontheblog at ChristinaChitwood.com (click on link in profile and go to fitness tab and select workouts). 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄 #babysfirstchristmas #christmastree #christmastree 🎄#christmasdecorations #holidays #babyboy 💙 #igmoms #boymommy #momlife #walking #walks #walkingwithbaby #ilovemybabyboy #babysmiles #momfitness #babywearing #fitnessfun #boymom #momlifeisthebestlife #mommy #momblogger #fashionblogger #fitnessblogger #blogger
Isn’t the goal always more time, more memories, more vacations, more money to do these things? ✾ I know it is for me, what I have is awesome but who doesn’t want to take that extra girls trip, or hot holiday.🤷🏽‍♀️ ✾ I always thought I would have to sell my soul or have home parties to create “more” for myself and our family ✾ I am super grateful this isn’t the case🥂 ✾ #nomorehomeparties #grateful #laptoplifestyle #plugin #leverage #systems #trackingsoftware #technology #doneforyou #automation #bossbabe #bossmommy #boymommy #entrepreneur #workfromhome #makingsaleswhilechangingdiapers #anorthernfreedom #bepresent
Throwing it back to when he used to let me rock him to sleep every night💙 It’s amazing how fast our babies grow & become independent🥺 I wish I could just crawl in his crib with him right now and snuggle!🧸 — At what age did your little one start going to bed completely on their own? 👶🏻💤
You make every moment count.♥️#boymommy
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas ⛄️❄️🎅🏼
🎄Merry Christmas to me!! 🎄 I LOvE buying gifts for everyone in my family- I love picking out every gift, taking the time to wrap them, and watching their excitement as they open them. This year, I decided to give myself the gift of health and fitness! And I took my time carefully making this decision, taking the time to place my order, and was so excited to find this in the mail! 😍 I just got my equipment and nutrition plan for Shaun T’s new program #transform20 . And yes, that is a step 😂. I remember back in the day and my mom doing a step aerobic class- this looks nothing like that so save the leg warmers! Want to learn more?

Remember when snow ❄️ days were like a pause button? Tucked inside, sleeping in, watching movies, reading a book. #meneither Now there’s life and real problems and kids who expect to be entertained and fed. #rude Don’t get me wrong. We played in the snow {ahem sleet}...ok, Ty and Nate played. I watched from the garage. We made gingerbread cookies and memories and of course I’ve got pics. But I’ll share those another time cause tonight I’m mourning the loss of the “pre-adulting” snow day. Tonight this mama is tired and I’m just grateful for my 3 minute mini facial. #sorelaxing #sarcasm
Acho que quando temos filhos, voltamos, um pouco, a ser criança. Ou talvez nos aproveitamos disso pra deixar a criança, que ainda existe em nós, aflorar! 😏 Não sei quem estava mais ansioso pra chegar perto desse Papai Noel: se o Heitor ou eu! 🤗Só sei que ele tratou logo de pedir um caminhão! 😂 Que clima gostoso o de natal, não é mesmo, gente? Quem também ama? 🎄⛄😍💙 #christmas #natal #maedemenino #momlifestyle #proudmom #kids #boymommy #motherhood #blessed #thanksGod

Such a well spent Sunday- worked out, cleaned, laundry, and family time! How did you prepare for the week??? 👇 #weekendvibes
Best week yet on the Apple Watch! So proud of myself! 🎉🎉🎉
They do NOT understand the importance of my Sunday matching pictures. #afterallivedoneforyou #icarriedyouforninefreakingmonths
Accountability is a funny thing. • • • • • I woke up to my son screaming out of excitement that I was home (even though he saw us when we got home last night 🤷🏻‍♀️) I didn’t have the best night of sleep and I told Diego I wanted to get coffee & donuts for breakfast. It was too cold. I had a headache. I wanted a nap. • • • • I 100% guarantee y’all my 4.5 miles would NOT have happened if I wouldn’t have had the accountability and commitment I made to doing my long runs on Sundays. This, to me, is what it means to be a coach. It’s leading from the front. It’s hard sometimes. So. Dang. Hard. But I started this journey wanting to show other moms if I can commit to something and find success, ANYONE can. So you’ll find me here next Sunday — hopefully after finishing 4.75 miles 🤞🏼😳 — and the Sunday after that. And the Sunday after that. Want some accountability? Someone to hold you to your commitments? I’m always just a message away 🙋🏻‍♀️👏🏼👇🏼 #sundayrunning ALSO shout out to my Secret Santa for my new favorite water bottle!! 😍😍😍
Cash 8th birthday celebration was a success! Thank you everyone who came and celebrated with us❤ #love #memories #bowling #eighthbirthdayparty #boymommy
Anyone interested in doing a free accountability group to count down the 12 days to Christmas with me?? I’ll provide some free at-home workout options, clean eating ideas and most importantly some accountability! Comment a ❤️ below and I will add you to the event!
When your kids are ready to start #transform20 with you! 😂😂😂
My #selfcaresunday included working out! Working out isn’t just something I force myself to do because I want to get in shape- I do it for those endorphins! I ❤️❤️❤️ how I feel afterwards!!! And no I don’t spend 2 hours in the gym- see my “gym” in my stories... 🙈🙊
I love when the mail person comes! 😍😍😍 I’ve been waiting on all of this to help with workouts! 💪😁❤️ Energize to motivate me EVEN more to get the workouts done.... Recover for those sore muscles because Autumn workouts are no joke (we have both been SOO sore)... Shakeology for the nutrition that I need to get #weddingready and #healthyish !! Want to learn more? Check out my webpage- link in bio 👆
Lunch 😋 #glutenfree
9am and #pilatesfix is done! Starting the morning with a workout is SO different but now I am ready to get the day started 😊💪🎉 How are you starting your weekend??? 👇
Happy Saturday ❤️
Upper fix ✅ ! I had zero energy and didn’t feel like it but I pushed through and guess what?!? Now I have LOTS of energy and feel A-MAZING! 😁 You’ve got this!! 💪
Confession: yesterday, I ate a whole 🍕 😬 Luckily I spread it over two meals, it was gluten-free and I worked out! Do I feel guilty? NOPE! Life is about balance and 21 Day Fix always some pizza here and there. I’m back on track today so it’s not a big deal 🤷🏻‍♀️
Oops! #zoolander face is caused by a slight mistake I made yesterday... 🙊🙈 Any guesses on what it was?!?
It’s been a year and a half since I had my son and I feel like I’m finally ready to start focusing. Not the half assed fake focusing where I do a meal plan for a few days then cheat the rest of the week. Not a workout here and there. I’m going for it all this time. I used to think I would snap back in a few months and now I realize that’s not possible. It’s not too late though, it’s never too late! Even if it’s been 1.5, 2, or even 5 years!! #youcandoit
Pretty much 😂😂😂 My abs are sooo sore but it’s a good feeling knowing that I’m getting stronger- I’m also down 3 pounds in 3 days 🎉🎉🎉
Looking to get results like 👆 in the new year?!? I know I am!! YOU can get results like this in just 20 minutes a day for SIX weeks. 😳 Here are some examples of results when people just pressed ▶️ once a day for 20 minutes in the comfort of your own home 🏡. This is EASIER and FASTER than heading to the gym everyday! Why not commit now to starting the new year off right? DM me or comment 👇 for more info!
Upper fix done! 💪 My fiancé got day 2 done too! 🎉🎉🎉 It’s SO nice to have a partner to do this with! Our son was content and it was so easy to run to the family room, press play, and get busy. How do you get your workouts in???
I promise I don’t always look crazy 🤷🏻‍♀️
I’m so thankful for this amazing man! ❤️❤️❤️ He stays by my side and supports me no matter what! I’m so lucky to have him as my partner in life 😍😍😍 #thankfulthursday
OMG I’m so excited! I’ve been wanting to make steps towards a healthier lifestyle for a long time, to be back to where I was pre-baby, and feel good about myself, too! I’ve tried a few other things and realized I need to do what has worked in the past- Beachbody! I also decided to go all in, so I made a decision to become a Beachbody Coach! Im working toward doing what’s best for this little guy. I can achieve MY health and fitness goals AND help my friends and family achieve theirs, too! I am starting my journey with Transform 20 technically in January to get fit in the New Year! The 20 minute workouts are perfect for my busy schedule! I can’t wait to start, and I want YOU to join me! We can do this together, message me or comment if you want more info!
Are you sure this is a “diet”??? I made me and my boo a plate- neither of us could even finish it!! So full! Leftovers mean no cooking dinner for this mommy tomorrow! 🎉🎉🎉
Day 1 done! Even got my fiancé to join in- Autumn is no joke for a 30 minute workout. I feel so good after this workout which is what I have missed. It’s so nice to have such a supportive partner to do this with!!! Do you need a partner to get in shape with for the new year? Message me! Do this with me!! Or comment your favorite emoji ❤️💕
Two days without my little guy traveling for work is always tough but the morning snuggles when I get home are the best! Being a traveling, working mom isn’t always the easiest thing for me but in the long run I know I’m doing what is best for my family with my job.
Mood this morning! 🙌 . . . Happy Wednesday! I’m working on focusing on the positive and removing all negativity from my life. . . Remove the negatives!
Conference time! Sometimes I get dressed up still... I miss my little guy but it was nice to have time to do my hair and make up this morning #itsthelittlethings
Why am I so excited to have made this decision? Proof is in the pudding! Here are some of my results from my last time doing #21dayfix 💪😍 . . . This time there are some key differences like I’m starting at s heavier weight, with less current working out happening, and I have a 👶🏽, but there’s EVEN MORE motivation because I’m trying to get ready for my wedding 👰! 😍 . . . #21dayfixresults
I’m super excited to be back to Beachbody with the newest @shaunt program #transform20 !!!🎉🎉🎉 It starts in January so I’m going to start with #21dayfix and a mix of Shaun T workouts to get me started!!! 💪 I did some Beachbody before and loved how I felt, loved the positivity of the people, and loved the results!
Ok, so it’s Monday afternoon... but still! You’ve got this!
Airport snack! 🍇 are something I love to have at the airport especially since I don’t tend to have them at home. What do you like for healthy snacks while traveling???
I may or may not have started wrapping 🎁 🎁🎁 🙊 I ❤️ Christmas!!! So excited to see the kids open everything!
