Thank you @powerplantla
for the plant-based, organic and gluten-free eats and the good vibes ✌🏼
❓Are organic foods any better ❓
👩🔬 Studies demonstrate that organic foods provision significantly greater levels of vitamin C, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus relative to their non-organic counterparts.
🍊 Organic foods also generally contain greater levels of a number of antioxidant phytochemicals, such as anthocyanins, flavonoids, and carotenoids.
🥕 This makes sense, as plants exposed to the elements must generate higher levels of antioxidant compounds as defense mechanisms.
🍇 Most importantly, however, organic foods contain lower levels of organophosphate pesticides—known neurotoxic, immunotoxic, and carcinogenic chemicals that are deleterious to human health.
💀 Pesticides are also linked to infertility: in one study, women who consumed two or more servings per day of pesticide-laden produce were 26% less likely to have a successful pregnancy than participants who ingested fewer servings of these foods.
🍍 Although results of in vivo studies are inconsistent, in vitro studies show that organic foods are more potent inhibitors of the mutagenic action of toxic compounds, and also suppress the multiplication of some cancer cell lines.

Sita & I killed it with multitasking this morning 💪🏾
What do you do when
* your baby starts crying in a carrier
* and you’re in line to get a spot at a popular early childhood learning program
* you’re then handed out information to read and decide on days you want to enrol for the term
* and your husband calls you with some random question (🙄🙄🙄)
* you need to collect your number then head over to another building to line up once again, pay, then fill out the enrolment form
🤪 YUP!!!! lots of deep breaths - unhook the carrier - unhook the bra - get the backpack off - strategical decide which hand you’ll need free - then stick your baby on the boob of the ‘free’ arm !!! 😂🤣😂🤣
Sita was brilliant as she stayed on the boob the entire time and I’m real proud of myself for not stressing with zero cares for public feeding.
And you know what was great? The silent 🙌🏾 s from other parents with encouraging looks and comments.
Here’s a massive 🙌🏾 to all the other new mama, partners, parents who are trying to get it right and multitasking!
My poor little one has been sick this week, but today marks a momentous occasion: SHE WALKED TODAY!!! ♥️♥️♥️ Actually, she’s been walking along furniture and taking 1 to 2 steps between furniture since before Christmas. And I was sure she would be walking on her own before the New Year BUT it came and went without any progress. I believe that she was physically capable, but every time I let go of her she would just plop down and crawl. I think cause she’s stubborn and knows how quickly she can get places on all fours. ♥️♥️♥️ Anyway, it finally happened last Friday when she took 3 unaided steps to me from my mom. I was so impressed! Then nothing over the weekend or this week until today when she turned away from me and—when she thought I wasn’t looking—took 4 unaided steps to her nearby toys!!! 🤗😍🤩🥳 I knew she could walk!!! I knew she was just being her stubborn little self!!! I can’t even tell you how much joy this brings me!!! ♥️♥️♥️ I just hope this cough clears up quickly so she starts feeling better. 🙏🏻
My girl woke every hour through the night and started the day at 5:45am. Then...
•40 minute commute
•8 hour conference
•40 minute commute •30 minute nursing session •20 minute workout • Then every waking and sleeping moment with this kid
Some days you have time, some days you have energy. Then there are the days where every minute is filled and you are zapped with energy. Do I workout on those days? You’re damn right I do.
I am committed to me.
Just don’t ask me about tomorrow 🤣🤣 just kidding.
Em sua maioria, isso tem acontecido quando vamos colocá-la sentada no bebê conforto e no carrinho. Quando aconteceu a primeira vez eu achei tão gozado. Esse contato aos poucos com a personalidade dela, já criando suas vontades, dizendo ao que veio... e... como todo bom filho... nos contrariando. E assim, sem nem falar ainda, ela começou a dizer NÃO. O começo de uma saga longa! Que nossa senhora da boa educação nos ajude. 😌
You know what I love?
Putting on cute, trendy clothes, doing my hair and lashes for a business trip to be surrounded by like minded men and women.
You know what I also love?
Wearing these handy new maternity pants #thankyouamazon
and an oversized sweatshirt with a messy bun and no makeup because I’ve been mommin’ hard all day.
Loving one doesn’t mean I can’t do the other. Reality and my dreams don’t have to clash. I’m thankful that I can live out my dreams through my work while raising my babies and giving them a front row seat to the opportunity that’s already changed so much.
It’s not easy and with this 3rd 👶🏻 I’m sure it’s not going to get any easier... but it’s always worth it to fight for your dreams🙌🏼
Better late than never! 😓
Fact: the longer you wait to workout, the harder it is to workout.
More facts: if you have kids, things will not always go according to plan. And it’s OK!! I did my 20 min workout while Annabelle took a catnap and Addie took a bath (daddy was there y’all). It’s 20 minutes!!! I can make all the excuses in the world like... ➖It’s so late
➖ just ate dinner
➖ sick and need to rest (but I feel better afterwards)
But when it comes down to it... it’s 20 min and there’s really no excuse to not get it done!

NEW BLOG! ✨🌕Postpartum Periods + Menstrual Wellness 〰〰
What was your period like after giving birth? The postpartum flow is bit of a guessing game: When will your cycle return? Will it be the same as it was? What if you’re breastfeeding? And how do you know when something’s not right? Whether you’ve given birth or not, your menstrual health matters – period. And we've got answers! (🔗in bio to the Tenth Moon blog ☝🏽️)
In this installment of our Sage Woman Series, we connect with Amanda Laird, a feminist holistic nutritionist, host of The Heavy Flow Podcast and author of Heavy Flow: Breaking the Curse of Menstruation (forthcoming late winter 2019). Needless to say, she knows a thing or two about periods❣
BONUS 🤗 Amanda is hosting a free live online workshop on how to have a pain-free, shame-free period: Thursday January 31, 2 PM EST | 11 AM PST. Head over to @amandalaird

This past Saturday I sent out the most packages I’ve ever sent out in one post office drop off. 📦 It was pretty fun, not gonna lie. And I don’t know if someday I’ll look back and think 12 orders was a lot or a little. But for now I’m celebrating the little moments that come with running a business! 💌
What little thing are you celebrating today!? #lincolnandgrace
Ps. Go check out my stories to see all the outtakes to get this photo 😂😂
It’s so hard to capture the “walking” milestone... it’s like the minute she starts walking and you realize it, the moment’s over. Or you’re sitting with the camera on and ready and she just crawls 😒 She’s been doing this walk/crawl thing for about a month now. She’ll walk a good six steps, crawl a few (or grab something), get up and do it again. It’s also majorly heightened when older kids are up and walking around and she just wants to get there as fast as they can 🤣🏃🏼♀️. One day, baby girl. One day. You’ll get there. In the meantime I’ll just be over here crying about how fast you’re growing up. What milestones are your kids in right now? Similar home product details on the @liketoknow.it

One of my big personal goals this year is to earn a six figure income from my business alone 🙈 Scares the shit out of me everytime I say it out loud but if I want it to happen, I can’t be afraid to say it! So I spent the day cuddled up under a blanket, with my computer on my lap, feeling baby moving all over ✨🥰 (I even got a midday nap in!)
Kinda crazy we live in a world where as long as we have good work ethic, motivation and the willingness to step out of our comfort zone... we can make our dreams come true and be financially free without having to leave the house! 🤸🏻♂️ So thankful for this coaching business ✨✨✨ #target #fabletics #gymshark #pregnantbelly #28weekspregnant #newmama #financialfreedom #pregnancy #mamatobe #hubbynwifey
Hi everyone! I’m Ali 😀 I’ve had a few new followers so I thought I’d re-introduce myself!
⭐️ I’m 30 years old and live in Minneapolis,MN. I’m originally from Massachusetts
⭐️ I’m a new mama - I just had my first baby Aubrey in August
⭐️ Before I had Aubs, I was big into running (I found out I was pregnant with her when I was training for my 5th marathon at Disney) but had to give it up because of concerns my doctor had. I’m planning on picking it back up when it warms up (I’m a wimp in these freezing temps!)
⭐️ I wasn’t always active and in shape - I used to be overweight and lost 40lbs following #WW
over 5 years ago. I was able to maintain that loss until I got pregnant! I’m now slowly trying to work off the baby weight (which does not just fall off! Ugh)
⭐️I just recommitted again to WW in November! I tried doing macros before to lose the baby weight and it just wasn’t working for me. WW has been amazing and now I’m almost back to my prepregnancy weight!
⭐️I love traveling! I used to travel the US for racecations (race vacations) and blog about them. My favorite place to go is Disney World! #RunDisney
races are the best! I can’t wait to take A one day.
⭐️ I used to do Orangetheory and other boutique fitness classes but now with a baby I just don’t have time 🤷♀️ I started working out at home and am in love with it (I wish I had started sooner!) I’m currently doing #Transform20
Baby no. 3... ⠀
Can’t lie that I don’t think about it sometimes. So at least my sister had a baby. ⠀ ⠀
That hair 🥰 ⠀
Both my kids didn’t get hair til they were like two or older... and they never got chubby rolls either. ⠀
Welcome to the world baby Mack.
“You aren’t going to be able to workout like this when the baby comes” is a comment I got often while pregnant. They weren’t wrong!! It was incredibly hard getting to an actual gym with my work schedule, my husband’s work schedule and my baby’s early bedtime. I went almost 6 months without any consistent workout routine. 😳 I started to fall into a bit of a funk. Which is usually what happens when I’m sedentary, especially in the winter. So... yes. I’m not able to workout like I used to before I had a baby, but I have a virtual gym filled with girls who all have different goals yet still cheer each other on, I have a place I can check into anytime from anywhere for some extra accountability and I don’t have to stress about when my next workout will be. 😊
I don’t ever want this little guy to be my excuse as to why I quit something! I want everything I do to be a benefit for him. Working out means this mama has more energy to keep up with a little boy who just keeps getting busier. 💙
We're adding our door hangers to our shop, and thought we'd start with our sweet but snarky beware of boob breastfeeding door hanger 😉 This is a great thing to have when you and your newborn are both learning how to breastfeed, and visitors may seem intimidating - we've all been there, I definitely have! 💕 Buy it now at the link in our bio under "What's New Wednesday" and keep an eye out for other door hangers coming soon!
Black on black and a cozy cardi = basically my postpartum uniform (when I manage to get out of my jammies, anyway). Sharing all of my postpartum wardrobe essentials over on thehipsuburban.com today - enjoy! // http://liketk.it/2zvdL #liketkit @liketoknow.it @liketoknow.it.home #LTKhome #momiform
We’re confident you’ll love your Ready Rocker, but try it where ever you need it: in bed, around the house, and on the go. If you’re not completely satisfied within 45 days, we’ll take it back thanks to our Rock Easy Guarantee! Shop now - link in bio.
I may be a little late in the game (7months behind 🤪) but putting SO MUCH love ❤️ & energy into this guys bedroom right now 🧸🛏👶🥰
Everyone’s gets things done in their own time 🤷♀️ to many I probably seemed crazy to have not worked on my nursery for my son until after he was born. My nesting in my home was not the typical nesting, as my hubby was deployed and I was working full time with a 4 year old 😳 YES - that was an interesting season in my life 🤣🤣
So here I am- finally putting together the crib my friend @shannonfelan
Painted for me, and putting up the wallpaper from @target
I’ve pinned for years on Pinterest. 🥰 Slowly coming together and looking SO perfect for my little mans space.
.. in life- it doesn’t matter how long it takes for you to get something important to you done. You just have to commit and do it when you’re ready 💕💕😊💕💕 then it will bring you JOY

We thought long and hard how we would tell my parents they were going to be grandparents. We decided to get a few baby items and put them in a young living box, invite them over for Sunday football, and tell my dad that this was a present from Christmas that hadn’t arrived in time. Naturally he thought I got him oils which shows in his complete confusion when opening the box. .
Swipe right to see their reactions!!! ***Be forewarned this might make you teary-eyed. Also our dog will not stop barking in the video...sorry...she’s excited too!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

9 days post delivery and down 22 pounds so far! Only 15 more to go to be back at prebaby weight. I’m amazed at how fast your body can transform during and after pregnancy. I’m not happy with how I look yet, but I am happy with how fast the weight seems to be coming off. •

Sof has started playing the piano and climbing up the oven. Oy. She’s getting so big, so quickly!!!
My journey all started with trying out a fat burning coffee ☕️ that I was so skeptical about before I tried it!! 🎉
I then became so obsessed with it and once I started to see my weight drop on the scale after a week and a half!! Now lets talk about the taste... a mocha coffee that tasted chocolaty🍫 and buttery that is totally amazing 😉!!
Now here i’am 30 pounds down and feeing so much more confident in myself. All because I started this journey with a switch of my morning coffee 👀
Cute comfortable T-shirt you can dress up or down💕

I think it’s important to be truthful, and though I love being a Mum and obviously love Noah, I’m not gonna lie, it’s been a hard week so far. Noah is very clingy, constant feeding and tears. I’m trying to embrace it, enjoy cuddles and soak in these special moments. But it’s hard to get things done, I know I’m not alone. With good friends, I’m learning to cope especially in public. I have to remember Noahs only 7 weeks old- you forget how young and momentous each week and growth spurt is #positivevibes #newmama #7weeksold #beingamumishard #breastfeeding #growthspurt
is a pretty phenomenal kid. With everything going on, she is still always there to hold, kiss, change, and kiss (obsessively kiss) Odin. Always. Her world might be upside down right now, too, but she is still chugging along being her own sweet self (most of the time)💗
Noah thoroughly enjoyed #babysensory
today discovering the #rainforest
it did tire him out- he is still sleepy now. It’s amazing watching them learn and discover for the first time. Noah is trying very hard to talk in his own little way, I think I will have a chatterbox on my hands teehee 😜 #newmama #noahokf #mrsokf #eurasianbaby
