This is my screen time usage report! Down 30%....oh yeah! 💥 One of my NYRs was to be more present and put down my phone! The majority of my time was spent on messaging and IG (which I use for school and to track my goals!). Facebook was hardly any minutes for the week—really trying to let go of social media! It’s hard when everyone you’re around is on their phone, but it’s my goal to be more present with those who are special to me! And down 30% is pretty incredible!💥💙💜 #goals#nyr#bemorepresent#enjoythepeoplearoundyou#putdownthephone#dontevenmissfacebook#settinggoalsandkillingthem
Being more present ♥️ that’s what I’m working on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s our first year apart, really. She’s in kindergarten and I miss her so. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I decided to actively try to be more present. Our phones are so amazing, we have knowledge at our fingertips- but it’s so easy to get totally lost in it all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So I set my phone up with 30 min limits for my most tempting apps ♥️ it works well & helps me find that balance a little better. I fail a lot, but I’ll never stop trying. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #akfitness#momlife ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Friday Reals - Our kids are growing up! Too fast! "The days can be long but the years are short" is a very true saying. Rikki is at her first sleep over tonight and Kollyns is having a play date with a friend tomorrow. Kollyns misses Rikki too. She said she gave her a hug after school and that it's weird with only 4 of us at home. I'm so glad they have each other. They were really meant for each other. Ryan is becoming more and more a little boy. He's having conversations and talking in clearer, full sentences. Getting taller and I can't believe how much he's changed just in the few weeks of turning 3. (Now if we could just get him potty-trained.) 2019 year of change and intention. #bemorepresent#changemyview
Here's to a strong start 🥂💪 #addstructure My friend Sara @thesarasocial is the one who showed me how I could make $500 in my first month, and now I get to show my friends how to do the same thing. It's one of those things that grows when you water it, and comes back time and time again. There are great months and not so great months, but when I put in the #work, IT. PAYS. OFF. I am having so much fun and am surprised we can keep it so simple. Honestly feeling so blessed having the ability to share more with others. I mean, "we're all on our phones anyway" right? & who doesn't wash their hair? 🤔 . 🔝 Captured above is a #generousgift for those partnering up this month. . What are you doing differently this year?
🙃"Panic causes tunnel vision. Calm acceptance of danger allows us to more easily assess the situation and see the options." ~Simon Sinek. . 🙃 Acceptance is the second step towards happiness. Awareness being the first. . 🙃 With acceptance of wholesome comes wisdom, experience, knowledge, ah'a moments. . 🙃 Happiness is more like an in and out burger. With acceptance, wholly comes the feeling of abundance. . 🙃 With mindfulness of abundance, journey of life becomes wholesome = awesome 😄😄😄 . 🙃 The ride of life is more in the journey than the destination, living more in the present 🎁 than fear of bygones and contemplation of imagination. #bemorepresent#lovetoday#wholesome#awesome#journey#destination#wisdom#experience#positivevibes
#thinkaboutittuesday . 💸Feeling the squeeze re: time+money? . 78% of American workers are living paycheck to paycheck, including 10% of those making over six figures. 80% are in debt, with only 35% of people believing they will pay it off before they die. 25% have zero savings. Only 38% could afford a $1,000 emergency. . . Meanwhile, stress levels are at an all time high. People are getting 2nd, 3rd, 4th jobs to make ends meet. But by the time you earned that extra paycheck, you have sacrificed: time spent with family, child care costs, commuting, scheduling, emotional/physical stress, etc. . More people are looking for non traditional ways to make additional income. Companies like Rodan + Fields are making business ownership accessible to EVERYONE. . . You can work when/where/how you want, without giving up more of your most precious and valuable commodity - TIME. ⌚ . Then there's the word-of-mouth marketing phenomenon that influences 90% of everyone's purchases. Combine that with the #1 selling premium skincare brand in North America and you have a little thing called a once in a lifetime opportunity. . Oh yeah, and residual income over time. .💸 ⭐️Most importantly, a gig like R+F can change what your day to day looks like RIGHT NOW. . Even a small amount of additional monthly income is life changing for most Americans (especially if you didn't have to drive in traffic to get it). . An amount that gives you more time, more options and more FREEDOM to live a healthy life.

One of my goals this year is to be more present, especially with my own family! I want my kids to grow up being outdoors, using their imaginations, and getting messy. Not glued to a screen on the couch. In order to do that, I need to be the best example of that. I'm not perfect at it by any means, but I'm trying♥️ @letterboardcompany #qotw#wordsofwisdom#2019goals#babysteps#bemorepresent
Five years ago, I made a decision that would forever impact my family’s future. Istarted my own direct selling business. Was I nervous about being judged?...Yes! Was I nervous about failing?... Yes! Was I nervous about selling something on social media? YES! Truth is… The day I started my e- commerce business (5 years ago today) I only had 60 friends on Facebook. I did NOT own a smart phone. I had two kids – ages 3 and under. I literally had 4 friends in the town we were living (we had only been there 4 years and I was on bedrest for both pregnancies and pretty reclusive all the other times). Then… 5 months after I started a network marketing business… we moved to another State across the USA where I only knew 4 people. ONLY KNEW 4 PEOPLE FOLKS! I had a MILLION reasons NOT to start my own business and a million to QUIT after I began because it got hard sometimes. But I saw the VISION of the company and TRUSTED the world-renowned doctors. I knew they were offering top quality products with plans to take us into a global market. My FAITH and BELIEF that this would absolutely change my family’s life is why I had to get my hands on it. I refused to let FEAR and JUDGEMENT hold me back. This single decision to screw fear, have grit, and not quit when business ownership gets hard… has impacted so many women across the globe. And it has been a beautiful thing to witness. Women are empowering other women to create change in their lives by sharing this opportunity. We have witnessed a gorgeous ripple effect. I said yes, and shared… She said yes, and shared… They said yes, and shared. The women who have joined me in business… They have regained confidence. They live their lives intentionally. Some have left jobs that exhausted them. Others have cut back on hours. Scholarships have been created. Adoptions have been funded. Debt has been paid off. Trips have been funded. Financial strain has been eliminated. Skin has been repaired.
Self-appreciation Sunday!☀️ - ☝🏼It all starts with one!💪🏼 - One positive change leads to another. One push-up makes you strong enough to do another. One change in your mind makes you feel better. - Do a little something good for yourself this fine Sunday! You deserve to feel your best! Being a little selfish now will help you be there more presently and with more love for others in the turn around! - - - - - - - #30something#womanup#healthyhustle#workforit#selflovesunday
You know when you feel like you have so much to say but you don’t know how to say it? ⠀ ⠀ Ya that’s been me since Christmas.... it’s been quiet over here, but my screen time is down 27% percent from last week so #silverlining ✨ ⠀ ⠀ Friends, I’m pretty sure I’m going to start communicating via email again and rely a little less on social media for online-connection (it becomes so time consuming, amiright?!). So if ya wanna be pen pals a lá grade 6, send me your email!!!⠀
I have to keep reminding myself that this is a journey. Life is a journey. Strength does not happen overnight. I took about 2 months, maybe more, off since my last lifting meet and training cycle. I can’t expect my body to pick up where I left it, and I shouldn’t have left lifting out of my life for that amount of time 😔 We are all human and flawed. My priorities shifted, but now they’re back on track. I didn’t hit my goals for 2018, but last year did help shape how I want to enter into 2019. Being more present is my main goal for this year, among others, but those will remain for me to focus on 🤫 I know I will get back to where I was in time, but I’m going to be more present about the training and movements. In summary: today was a good day. A learning day. #olympiclifting#trainingisajourney#trustyourself#trusttheprocess#bemorepresent#strengthisbeauty#womenwholift
So far 2019 has taught me about accountability. Without really making an effort to, or changing much in my daily routine, I’ve heard the words “thank you for holding me accountable” many times this year already. Why? Because in 2019 I made a personal goal to be more present. So instead of listening to what my friend had in mind for fitness goals while I scrolled Instagram- I listened to her say that she was trying to make the most of her gym membership, and asked her if she wanted to go together when our schedules were both free. Instead of multitasking when I asked my cousin what her plans were for the week, I sat down and noted the times that she was free, and made a point to take a class with her. After having to cancel a run with a friend due to cold weather, I encouraged her to get some miles in [indoors] before we are forced to let “winter” i.e. colds and cold weather completely get in the way of our running routine. Instead of saying that I want to run after work, I pack warm clothes in my bag and get the miles in when I can- as presence can apply to yourself, too. I hear you. I care about your goals. And I am simply here to support you [and them]. I don’t mind if you don’t hit the gym every day. I understand when we’re feeling under the weather. I support ever-changing goals. But one thing I promise is that I will be by your side whenever you need me and in whatever capacity. I will be more present in 2019, for myself and for the people around me. And in advance, thanks for holding me accountable, social media. • #2019goals#accountable#beaccountable#accountability#yesyoucan#bemorepresent#putthephonedown#donttalkaboutitbeaboutit#benicetoyourself#hearyourbody#listentoyourbody#listentoyourfriends#bemoreyou#bemorehuman#crushgoals#babyabs#burnsquad#listenmore#smilemore#makemoreconnections#moreyes#hellyesorno#strongwomen#leaveafootprint#thankyou
Promised myself I would get at least one 🏃🏼♀️ in while we were here in London. And this morning, I kept that promise. 🙌🏻 Beautiful morning to check out Hyde Park. Paved paths, leaves in the ground, all kinds of birds 🐦 🦆 and squirrels 🐿 all over...such a quaint and quiet run even with many other athletes and individuals out and about. 🏃🏼s and 🚴♀️s are so well regarded here - paths on every street for the cyclists to ride safely and pedestrians move aside easily to allow runners to pass on the sidewalks. And people are out in the parks just strolling 🚶🏼♀️ and playing and enjoying the outdoors all of the time. Quite impressive to see. We were told London was a city that is meant to be walked and explored ... how true that statement is. We enjoyed every minute and saw so much each day. It was really a great way to spend the week and much needed time together. ❤️ Wonder where we will decide to venture to next...?✈️ But for now, I’m ready for my own bed and to see my 👬. #fitmom#runnermom#london2019#takingitinternational#nnoresolutiins#justgoals#numberone#bemorepresent
Really enjoying the style of @samharrisorg guided meditations on his app Waking Up. 🧘♀️ I’ve just been reminded of the fact that meditating in the morning, even if only for 10-20 minutes, literally changes my whole day. I feel calm and content, more in tune with myself, my usual mental chatter is silenced, and it’s as though I’m observing the world with fresh eyes. 👁 Time slows down and I even walk at a more leisurely pace, enjoying the journey rather than simply getting from a-b. I notice new details and beauty all around me, and the choices I make are far more conscious. It’s amazing what a difference it makes, total gamechanger. 🙌 Hoping to get back into a daily habit of mindfulness, simultaneously using my @joovvsocial red light device - killing two birds with one stone and quite possibly supercharging my meditation! 🤔💡🤯🚀

Sometimes I envy those friends (or total strangers 😊) that have GORGEOUS social media pages, or heart felt blogs.💗 I love seeing their photos and reading thier stories, and for a moment I think... “I want to do that, I could totally start a blog and post a few times a week, or start posting professional quality photos on my Insta”... but then my REALITY quickly starts to sink in... I have 2 small children, that when asked to take a picture of mama either run off with the phone or start taking pictures of every inanimate object 3 ft off the ground. My day consists of arguing with small versions of myself, whilst keeping them fed, clean, to activities mostly on-time, and managing a household with a hubby who is away/working nearly ALL-the-time 🙄! As much as I would love to be chillin at a cute Oki cafe, or site seeing the historical and beautiful areas of this island... my season is different than others... not less than others, not more important, not necessarily even more challenging... but it is different... and this year I am working on ENJOYING my season... my current season. This year will be full of ups and downs and lots of changes for us, and I want to be able to CHOOSE JOY and GRATITUDE in each phase! 💕Don’t let comparison steal your joy, but let joy be your instrument of comparison and correction. 💕 If you are not happy living life, make some changes in your life that will increase your joy. Some suggestions that I am using for myself... 1. regular exerise 2. journaling- more photos, and Bible study journal 3. Fewer sweet treats 4. More veggies 5. Focusing on ONE day at a time 6. Starting over in areas I have failed, or slacked 7. Setting new goals What are some other ways you fight for your JOY? #liveinthemoment#fightforjoy#momlife#instamommy#notperfect#babywearing#squintyeyes#21monthsold#christianmama#joyinthejourney#bemorepresent#resolutions
My goal this year is to be more present. I find that life gets the better of me and I forget to be a good friend. I won’t let that continue. I’m inviting all of you to hit me up...I want to pen you in for coffee, conversation, ANYTHING. I want to be available to the people who matter most. Let’s start a book club, a potluck, a coffee date, Mom’s nite out...SOMETHING! Let’s help each other smile everyday. 🙂❤️ #friendsaresoimportant#letsdolunch#comeoveranytime#bemorepresent#beabetterfriend
See these two little creatures? One of them loves cuddling on the couch, and the other one loves to read books with mama. 🛋️ . . I was tired of the hamster roll of life, of always feeling like I took one step forward and two steps back. And I was tired of not being able to enjoy making memories, like this one. 📚 . . When I took ahold of my schedule and timeblocked my life, my work and my self-care, everything changed. I found white space to allow in opportunities for my business. I didn't have to sacrifice my "girl time" with a growing babe. And I didn't neglect my marriage, friends or the laundry anymore (well, the laundry doesn't have feelings... right?) 🤯 . . If you want to learn how I timeblock, check out my latest blog post - there's even a free graphic AND a video of my own timeblocking schedule for you to get inspired. ☑️ . . #timeblocking#timeblock#productivity#productivitytips#momboss#bossmom#momlife#entrepreneur#smallbusinessowner#bemorepresent#bemoreproductive#abundantlife#whitespaceplanning#whitespace
There is definitely something about the start of a new year that motivates us to re-evaluate and re-adjust! I'd like to continue the work on being the best version of myself! Enjoying the beautiful chaos, rather than wishing it to pass! Trying not to get overwhelmed in the process and being more present everyday! To continue re-learning what it means to take good care of myself. To remind myself to take a breather and get outside! 😉 Cheers to being a work in progress...To a new year, to growth, to happiness, health and love! • • • #thisisme#newyear#goals#bemorepresent#workinprogress#perspective#beautifulchaos#growth#happiness#health#love
At the beginning of this year, I chose five themes to incorporate into my life: 1️⃣ Simplify through prioritizing 2️⃣ Minimize my carbon footprint 3️⃣ Give more grace (to myself & others) 4️⃣ Be open to change 5️⃣ Be present and connect with people and moments more. 🙋🏻 Yesterday I took a moment to be more present. We had a weekend of weather here that felt like Spring! Josh and I spent some time basking in the sun and sipping tea on our balcony. 🍵☀️ It's how we chose to be more present and take the opportunity to find joy in the little things. Something I think we all need more of! 🤗 Today I want to encourage you to be more present too! Find joy in the small things and love your life just a little more! Double tap if you're ready for more joy this year! ❤️❤️ #compassmylife#bemorepresent#betterliving#ilovemylife#lovingthismoment#lovingthisweather#happymomentsinlife#thoughtfulliving
If you are friends with my on FB you may have seen I'm taking a step from my makeup business. My goal for 2019 is not only to take care of myself but to spend more time as a family and be more present in my daughter's lives. Do not get me wrong I still love the brand and will definitely be keeping my website open and will be ordering my favorite products as well. But I just do not have time to seek out parties and put them together when no one "shows up." My time is more important elsewhere but all power to the women who are succeeding in this business. You truly are an inspiration. So during this time I really have to search to see if I can find any other products that I like better or even equally. Have you tried the Covergirl Healthy Elixir foundation? #newyearnewme#2019#newyearsresolution#familytime#raisingmydaughtersright#momofgirls#bemorepresent#makeup#beauty#iambeautiful#truebeauty#covergirl#covergirlhealthyelixir #covergirlhealthyelixirfoundation
Rolling into #monday like.. Back to school for the big kids today and I actually miss them. ❤️ Had Such a wonderful Christmas break. So sad how its suddenly all over with so quickly. Happy Monday everyone!
I'm not one for resolutions so this is by certainly not a resolution simply an intention of something I am aiming to continue to try and do this year which is not to eat at my desk! As some of you know, as well as teaching yoga, I also teach at college art & design. When I am at college I often find myself at lunchtime eating with one hand and answering emails with the other. I think if I could have octopus arms I would also be answering the phone, filing paper work, planning lessons, giving feedback and sipping coffee all at the same time too! Either way I can honestly say I am never fully present in any of the above as I guess we could say I am multitasking but this isn't always a healthy approach to life or work. So I am going to be trying to following the advice from Thích Nhất Hạnh "At lunchtime, eat only your food and not your fears or worries. Don’t eat lunch at your desk. Change environments. Go for a walk." Sometimes, lunchtimes can be quite literally eaten up but I want to help myself to be more mindful and healthy by at least stepping out the office on my lunch break even if it is for 5 minutes to walk around the block and to give my brain a break, connect with nature and allow my nervous system to slow down. So this is my intention. Mindful lunchtimes. Do you find yourself doing the same? Perhaps join me and approach lunchtime with a fresh perspective this week and beyond. #healthymind#healthybody#mindfulness#bemorepresent#healthylunchtime#multitasking#notaresolution#freshapproach
This is definitely something I am striving to do more of in 2019. Be present and in the moment. I do love taking pictures though, so that’s what I find the hardest. For now my focus is more on social media. I don’t have to post a pic on my feed or in my stories right away. Social media is always there and I can do it later. By doing that and posting some things all at once, I find then I’m only on a couple times a day, instead of every couple hours 😆 Are you trying to cut down time on your phone or are you already successful at it? Share your tips and tricks below! Thanks for this great doodle @positivelypresent . . . . . #sunday#newweekahead#newweeknewgoals#putdownthephone#bemorepresent
For the last few years I have picked a word or phrase for the year. In 2017 it was live authentically, last year it was joy. And I am still working on both those daily. Especially joy. God even called me lead a bible study next month called Defiant Joy which I am super excited about diving into. But this year I chose #bemorepresent. I read a book a long time ago, I mean a really long time ago, back when Oprah used to have a show on ABC not her own channel. lol 😂 now I feel old 😆 haha but I’m not that old which is funny. I just loved personal development even back in my early 20s. So back to the book it was by Eckhart Tolle and it talked all about being fully present in everything we do from feeling the water as we wash our hands to be in the moment you are in not 10 steps ahead. I have tended to be 10-100 steps ahead my whole life. I’m a planner by nature. Which in something’s is great. It was great when I did interior architecture. It’s great when I’m planned meals outs for my family. It’s great in many things. But I also want to stop and smell the roses more this year so I can enjoy the moments I am in with greater joy! I also want to teach my son especially to be present and not 10 steps ahead like me. He is always asking while we are doing something what is next instead of enjoying the moment for what it is. I’m not sure if this is something I taught him or if this is in his nature because he is adopted. But I believe we can change if we are shown new and better ways to do things. And his mama I have a big influence in his world so I definitely want to show him a different way in this area. #smelltheroses#2019wordoftheyear#present#iamworthithealthcoaching#mygoals#personaldevelopment
Do you take time to look up and see what’s around you? Interact with other people? Smile? Wave? Be overly affectionate with someone else’s dog? • If not, try it next time you’re out. It’ll feel awkward at first and most people won’t know how to respond, but I promise you will walk away with at least one genuine interaction that will change your outlook, and even more so, it will change THEIRS. • That’s what we’re here for right, connection? • #lookup
Last year, 2018, my theme was “Do Less.” The year before that, 2017, I modeled my theme after Shonda Rhimes’ Year Of Yes. I took on any project I was asked to do, I set out to do every health/fitness challenge, and I learned a lot of new skills. I decided that 2018 I would do less, but make the most out of it. “Quality over quantity.” This year I want to continue that, but this time I want to BE more. I know that I can get the most out of everything I do if I be MORE while doing it. Be more confident. Be more passionate. Be more impactful. Be more helpful. Be more creative. Be more present. Be more thoughtful. Be more consistent. Be more daring. 2019 I WILL be more!
One of my main goals for 2019 is to be more present. I have a really bad habit of being distracted either by my phone or my thoughts while I'm around other people, especially my family. So, instead of getting distracted by my phone, I'm going to work on setting it down somewhere not as close to me, so it's not as easy to just pick it up and look at it constantly. Because, let's be honest, what's more important in life, checking social media, or spending quality time with my family...there's really no question there. I also have a bad habit of constantly thinking about the future and planning for what comes next, and while I think that's important as well, I tend to let it hold me back from living in and enjoying the moment I'm in, so I'll be working on that as well. What's a personal development goal you're working on this year?
I kicked of the first day of 2019 with my lil sis——>5 years younger than me>>I still have carbs, protein and healthy fats - EVERYTHING that the body needs to work at its best. #balance#mymealplansucks😉 #notadietbutalifestyle We even enjoyed some #benandjerrys frozen yogurt 🍦 on our lil outing. I am always trying to make the better choices in life. My life is full of goals but my goals still have me having fun and enjoying what life has to offer. How about you friend?! - - - I have virtual openings for A SUPPORT GROUP starting January 14th where you’ll get workouts to choose a fitness program that will best suite you, yummy shakes, and learn how to eat according to your goals and you won’t be alone but among others that need all the support too! #togetherwerestronger#riseuptogether#teamwork Let’s talk
CREATING NEW HABITS TAKE TIME. Remember that going into this new season. Sure we have goals we want to accomplish this year. But honor your pace and give yourself grace. ✨ . . And Its okay to not have your goals figured out yet. Don’t let the new year pressure you into making drastic changes and figuring it all out at once. It doesn’t have to be a new year to make a change. You can decide on a random day. Or in the middle of the night. What you have to remember is that it will take time. ⌛️ . . Some of my other goals this year are to stop overthinking, stop comparing, grow in my faith, help more women reach their goals, read more, get back into yoga, be more present, keep breastfeeding my baby, and take more social media breaks. 🙏🏼 Its not going to happen over night or all at once. But little conscious changes each day will help turn them into long time habits. #trusttheprocess ✨ . . What habits do you want to change this year?
Hello again (California)! I missed you. This year I resolve to #bemorepresent, to really see the beautiful things in front of me instead of worrying about capturing them for later. This is what it's all about, isn't it? (pic by my brother)

Happy New Year, everyone! 🥳I’m a day late but here are my January Intentions! I’m very excited for my new gratitude journal and book of mantras that I got for Christmas which I’m going to start using every morning to set me up for a healthy, happy mindset 🤗 Looking forward to what 2019 will bring! What are your intentions for January and 2019?! Feel free to share them with me!
2019 will be my first time to choose a word for the year. This year I want to be more PRESENT. Present in my relationships, in my community, in my love for God. I want to focus on living more in the here and now and less for the future what-ifs. I want to actively engage in my relationships with people and enjoy my life as it is right now. And less time thinking about my to-do list, social media, or everyday worries. Here’s to a great 2019 and all the adventures it will hold. - - - #2019goals#wordoftheyear#bemorepresent#illustrator#petillustrator#oklahomacity#shoplocalokc
Colucci Christmas in Havasu was a success!!! ❤️. . Social media was put on the back burner (way back) for a solid 10 days, and damn did it feel good. There wasn’t any intention to do that, but something about family time makes you set the phone aside. This was a Christmas I’ll never forget. And that’s not because of pictures or clever instagram posts. It’s memorable because my mom taught me how to make our family’s Italian Cookies. It’s special because of the laughs we shared, scat games played and stories shared. . Goal for 2019 is simple...be more present ✨

#appreciationofbeauty I was on my way to work when the sky was all cotton candy food coloring pink. — So this is a #characterstrength that happens to be stronger for some people and not others. It’s the way you look at simple things in life and appreciate their fine details when it’s very easily to #overlook. By accessing this strength, you will be able to slow down and #bemorepresent. There’s no need to be desperate for bigger things when you have a #goodattitude. Just a few things I learned from #positivepsychology
