When so many little things align, I know this is a message and I must pay attention.  From a hard AF workout filled with emotional outbursts, to simple affirmations that ended up defining this day, UNIVERSE, I HEAR YOU LOUD AND CLEAR. 💡🌠🔥 This is a message for no one but myself. There is nothing out there not giving me what I deserve it am worthy of. Exempt for me.  I put my big scary dreams on the bottom of the list every time. I'm over it. It's time to work harder than I ever have before.  DROP AN EMOJI IF YOU MIGHT NOT PUT IN THE HARD WORK ON YOURSELF LIKE YOU KNOW YOU SHOULD.  We all have done it.  Now is the time to do better.

confession time: I love traveling with my friends and taking the time out to not being a full time mom. A break from packing lunches, prepping meals and the overall mental work load of a mom is honestly one of the best things ever. BUT- I can’t help but to think how my kids would love this new place. Maybe it’s because in between their squabbling and asking for snacks, I get to see the wonder of the world through their eyes with #nofilter. #thismamaneedsavacay #travelblogger #sedona #thismama #girlstrip #cathedralrock #enchantmentresort #familytravels #havekidswilltravel #butsometimesileaveathome

Our dog Luna enjoyed Graysons meal today.  Yep! So this basically sums up how we’ve been doing with regards to getting him to eat 😂. Grateful for Luna who is cleaning up the mess he is making!  Trying to get Grayson to eat has been testing my patience, which means it is time to exercise more patience.  An unscheduled bath now has our name on it 👌

’Bloom where you are planted’  Currently planted on the motherhood journey and while this isn’t the only thing that defines me as a woman, it sure as hell will continue to contribute significantly.  Hey Mama! is my personal way of sharing with you motherhood & life as a woman balancing her new normal from my perspective; creating a space for me to document this rollercoaster and being resonant with other moms and women.  Before becoming a full time mother, I was a full time seeker of my true self, meditating daily, spending endless hours getting lost in my latest read and sitting with nature. Then baby came and a new life for me emerged. Unfortunately , I haven’t been able to master mom life & spirituality together LOL, but with determination I intend to create a harmonious symphony between the two. Let’s see where this goes.  Motherhood has taught me to put aside all these great plans I have in my head and simply surrender.  Click link in my bio to see my latest article ‘Did I survive the 1st year as a mother?’
When we first got miss @karathekarelian I had no idea how much she would change our lives and just how much we would all love her. At first, she was sweet and friendly but kept her distance, I guess being in the shelter for 30 days and missing your old family would do that to anyone. That has changed radically, we joke that she has become "needy" as she wants to be by one of us at all times 😍  One morning she went from puppy energy to waking up a little lethargic and as the day progressed she slowed down more, we took her to the vet and found out that she has gained a little too much weight in a short time. The next day the blood test results told us that she has diabetes.  They are not sure how long she has had it. Insulin shots for this fine lady twice a day.  We were instructed to get her weight down (she's my first canine client! 😂), this will hopefully help her need less insulin. This girl is getting so many walks during the day that we might even lose some pounds 😜. The Vet said that there are very few cases where losing the weight and activity lead to not needing insulin shots at all, but we believe it is ok to shoot for the moon, if not at least we know we tried 💪🏽🐶 In the meantime, this mama has gotten really good at administering insulin shots, and she is getting better at not kidding from me for hours after...mom guilt much??! Did I mention that we live her SO much?! ❤️ #furmom #furbaby #seniordog #adoptseniordogs #adoptdontshop #diabetis #caninediabetis #love #loveourdog #activedog #momlife #momguilt #insulin #thismama #family #veterinarian #thankful #blessed #dogsofinstagram #allyouneedislove #dog #karelian #beardog

Oya ooo who is kind enough to wish Amira happy birthday?  This is the pose they give me when they are so done. Dear Amira, you kuku tried oooo infact I still give you a 10 for how you did. Wishing you many beautiful years.
Hours of gravel roads and endless panorama views took us on top of the Swartbergpass and right on the edge of where the little Karoo turns into the never ending big Karoo. The winds blow heavily whenever we get out of the car and start climbing the rocky grounds, making it extra challenging for the kids. But these views 🙌🏻 the views make this trip breathtaking and make you want to keep driving forever...

My touchstone for the year is FLUID. Not only because I’m deepening into my exploration of my experience of gender, but because I want to embody fluidity in all kinds of other ways. Flexible. Flow. Adaptable. Consciously yielding. Surrender. Trust. Non-binary thinking & being. Rolling with Life. . I’ve spent so many years building up armor to keep me “safe” and “protected” from harm (to my body, mind, or spirit). I lived from a delusion of being able to CONTROL circumstances and people. I thought I was RIGHT and others were wrong. . Now I’m leaning into this truth: the more I focus on strengthening my internal boundaries, the more space there is for fluidity in every part of my life. And I can only ever control how I choose to meet my circumstances, which is actually very freeing. . This doesn’t mean I don’t have opinions; I do. This doesn’t mean I won’t speak up for what I believe in; I will. . This simply means I’m softer… more tender. Acknowledging my own and everyone else’s humanity first and foremost. And going with the flow of life, meeting it with acceptance instead of resistance, and making conscious choices as often as I can. . Oh hey, 2019. 🧡☺️😘🌊
SCHEDULE YOUR WORKOUTS IN, like you do with your meetings at work and doctor appointments. . If you are having trouble finding time to workout, you need to evaluate how you are spending your 24 hours each day.  Yes we all have busy and hectic lives but if you want to improve your health & fitness, you need to make it a priority and cut back on other things that do not serve your health & fitness goals. . So when you are evaluating how you spend your time, ask yourself - Does this activity get me closer to achieving my health & fitness goals?  If the answer is no then you need to cut back the hours you devote to that activity. . 📹 @lisa_b.fit  #nevermissamonday #fit #fitmom #fitmomlife #fitmomsofig #mommyblogger #fitnessblogger #gym #gymlife #mondaymotivation #mondaymindset #mindset #fitnessjourney #2019

Starting #postpartum Phase 2 today. Getting back to the basics. Although I know I can do more, patience and relearning patterns with the changes my body has been through will pay off in the long run. I’m definitely not even close to where I need to be, but #onedaybetter is the approach to take, as an athlete, and especially as a momma (I know other Mommies understand where I’m coming from). Here are some of the exercises from today’s workout:  Deadball Slam/ hinge to chest pass x 5  Split Squat x 8ea. (Raised service)  Kaiser 1A1L row x 8ea Supine Hip Flexion x 8ea  #postpartumfitness #thismama
Motherhood is a juggling act. 🤹🏼‍♀️ And I’m focusing on appreciating every bit of it.  Below is a list of what took place this morning, to the best of my recollection- before 9am.  I’m posting this not to brag or make myself look like a super mom, but to actually stop and appreciate all that mom’s do day in and day out. I’m sure your mornings look just as chaotic.  At the end of the day it can seem like nothing is truly accomplished, but when you list out the details, you can sit back and say: “DANG, I AM a rockstar. I am owning this mom-thing. I am doing what needs to be done and accomplishing all the important things!” So start saying that to yourself! Speak truth over yourself and be proud of who You are and how you nourish your loved ones!  Take pride in the day-to-day “mundane” tasks. Because those are the tasks that really matter.  What #thismama accomplished before 9am ➕5:30-6a Nursed Miles ➕6:05-6:25a Nourished myself w/ JuicePlus+ capsules, water and honey fig cream cheese toast while rocking baby back to sleep. ➕6:25-6:45a Pumped while putting on makeup, drinking coffee and reading my daily devotions... all with little man in the background sleeping to the sound of the shower 🚿 ➕6:50-7:10a made breakfast for the kids and hubby @lan_zentmeyer ➕7:10-7:15a Had a beautiful conversation with my Becksley girl while she ate breakfast ➕7:15-7:25 Changed Miles’ diaper and mini nursing session ➕7:30-8:40 -woke up Grant -served him breakfast - Helped him get dressed - changed Miles’ diaper -danced with a fussy Miles -help Grant brush teeth -bribed a fussy Grant to finish breakfast (which is now wayyy cold) -Helped Grant hold Miles (heart exploding) -Drove Grant to school -Drove home.... NAP time 😴😂👊

I’ve always been avid book reader. When I was 6, my mom took me to the library to me my very first library card. I remember being incredibly excited! I could now pick out my own books with my own card! Prior to becoming a mom, I read at least one book a month. Now I’m lucky to read one book a season! Anyway, my husband got me #becoming by #michelleobama for Christmas, and I’ve been reading a little bit daily since then. What are you guys reading? Also, hard copy or digital?🌻

Looking back on this photo from January of last year, I was so happy to be back on the wrestling mat. Whether that was to compete again, I wasn’t sure. I knew supporting wrestling in any capacity was where I was meant to be. I took the time to comb through life’s different avenues and I sat with the internal battles about what choices I should make that would best serve my goals, my family, and my self. • Despite the difficulties of finding a place to bring little babe, the right kind of training, and the right kind of environment... well, you know where this is going. This is a “nevertheless she persisted” kind of story, meant to inspire you to keep fighting for your own. • 10 days out from the Dave Schultz International ✌️ If you are in the Denver or Colorado Springs areas, come watch wrestling at the Olympic Training Center Jan 24th! 🤼‍♀️ • #neverthelessshepersisted #nevertheless #nevergiveup #wrestling #wrestlelikeagirl #girlswrestling #daveschultzinternational #champion #thismama #trainlikeagirl #athletemom

This is Monday motivation for any Mom out there who has been "thinking" about going to school to get or finish a degree. Do it!  When I was thinking about getting a Master's degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology, my cousin told me these words, "Time is gonna pass, you might as well be taking a class!" Those words flipped a switch in my brain. It made perfect sense.  While I was thinking and talking about it, I could have been half way done! So, guess what? I did it.  I went back to school in my very adult life and obtained an advanced degree. And I did it all while being a working mom. If I can do it you can too! Was it easy? No. Is it possible? Yes. Was it worth it? Absolutely.  It has made me more equipped to pour into the lives of Working Moms everywhere. Click the link in my bio to read my article in Thrive Global about my graduation journey. Now. Call that university, TODAY,  and get signed up.  I will be waiting to hear about your accomplishments! Moms! You have been officially motivated. Now stare Monday in the face and say, "What's good? Let's do this!" 😉 #workingmoms #moms #gobacktoschool #dailymotherhood #inspo #thrive #unicornmoms #dailyparenting #motherhood #youmatter #advancedegree #bachlorsdegree #masters #wisdom #momlife #lifeofamom #beautyandbrains @workingmother #hmm  #ladyboss #bossbabe #girlboss #browngirlbloggers #highheelshighgoals #ownyourlife #flyhipageless @fentybeauty #thisgirlcan #thismama #thisgirlisonfire #fly4.5 #followme
This week, my “S” stands for Serena. My @Serena S Melbourne shirts are limited and available online. Link in bio. #thismama realized last week I had not had a proper pedicure since before I had Olympia (I now paint my own nails fun but not as relaxing). She is 16 months now!!! I used to go every week as a way to relax. It was literally my favorite thing to do. But ever since I had the baby, I feel overwhelmed with guilt if I want to take “Serena” time. As a working mom, I feel like my “extra” time should be spent with my daughter. I have been told a million times (and even by you all) to take care of myself so I can take care of my child. I hear it, but it’s harder to put into practice as a first time mom.  Do any of you ever experience mom guilt?  Stresses of life can really get to you and I finally decided to take the first step in doing something for me. So every Saturday or Sunday I try to take time to do something for me (even if it’s just an hour). So to my fellow moms and dads out there: don’t forget to give yourself a little love too.  #thismama #thisdaddy Get your limited “S” Melbourne and show me YOUR ‘S’ at the Aussie Open or by tagging @serena
Profonde gratitude pour tous ceux qui tiennent ma main de près ou de loin au moment où je m’apprête à embarquer pour mon premier voyage dans mon nouveau rôle. #leadersinheels #tourbillondelavie #thismama #mamantravaille
As I head into next year it’s not about what we can do it’s what we MUST do as working moms and working dads. Anything is possible. I am getting ready for the first match of the year and my dear sweet baby @olympiaohanian was tired and sad and simply needed mama’s love. So if it means warming up and stretching while holding my baby that’s what #thismama will do. My fellow moms and dads working- or stay home it’s equally as intense- but you inspire me. Hearing your stories makes me know I can do this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. This year is to you! What are some things you had to do while working? #thismama #thisdaddy
#thismama was hoping @olympiaohanian would get some sleep but @realqaiqai kept her up the whole flight. #momlife

Mommy had to work the past few days. L and Bug really missed her and burst into our room this morning to let her know. She is NOT a morning person, but she missed them too and wanted some love.
