The best thing about my cardio workout this morning..... Feeling God's presence.!!! He doesn't use a pitchfork
He doesn't have a tail
He comes disguised as fear and lies
To remind you when you've failed
He doesn't wear a red suit
And he doesn't smell like smoke
He sneaks around 'til he finds your doubt
And that's where he makes his home
But when he comes for you
All you gotta do
Is take a look at the devil right square in the eye
And tell him I have believed you for the very last time
Devil, I know you've been lying to me
You do not define me
'Cause all of your power has been swept away
Your threats are as empty as Jesus' grave
So devil, go get behind me
You do not define me
He knows the ways we're different
Where we're tempted to choose a side
Takes the beauty in our diversity
And he'll use it to divide
And he'll split us over doctrine
Or the color of our skin
And when we fight with fear and hate
He's the only one who wins
One Name above all names
Defines who I am, allows me to say that
I've got the victory
Over the enemy
One God above all gods
Who knows who I am, and gives what I've got and
I've got authority
To make the devil flee
Totally forgot to post yesterday.
So here is how it went yesterday.
There is a place in town that has the best queso for chips so I had some😁😁 but not as much as usually.
But other then that yesterday went very well meals wise.
Today this is what is for dinner we went out. I did leave the rice in my plate but had some chips and salsa 😁🤷. What can I say I like chips and salsa.
Other then that my meals through out the day were portioned and healthy.
So my conclusion from the last 2 days.
I feel great still. Not guilty. 👊👊
And after I put it in my head that I will not feel guilty when I eat a couple of chips and salsa. I don't desire them so much. ❤️❤️❤️ Grace ❤️
A year ago I was at the hospital waiting for you to come. You have brought so much love into our family. You make me so happy every time I see you. Happy first Birthday Bryson! Auntie LOVES YOU 💙
Calling all moms with rainbow babies! 🌈
Hey ladies! I have decided to capture something a little different than what I am used to, sometime in May. Caila Smith and I are wanting to portray a photograph with moms who have experienced infant/ child loss of any kind (miscarriage, stillbirth, infant loss, etc.) and who have, also, been blessed with another baby who is their "Rainbow after the storm." Correlating with the photograph, we would love to raise awareness by writing an article of each mom's journey through loss and new life after loss.
Email me at email@example.com
if you are a rainbow mommy and have an interest in participating.
Also, please email Caila Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your story! 🌤🌈 Tag anyone you may know that would want to be apart of this experience!
He drives 45 miles to see me before He leaves for a different job❤️❤️. As a woman I wear a lot of different hats: wife, mother, chauffeur, nurse, fitness coach and I could go on and on, I love each one of them. But the most important one is my roll as a wife.
I Love what one article wrote: "If you’re a Christian wife, your top ministry is toward your husband. He is the service God has led you to. The rest is secondary." I know if I invest in my marriage. I do better in every other aspect of my life.

Day 1 of this new beginning, has been a success.
No sweets, no peanut butter rolls.
It's been a good day.
Not comparing myself
Just God, me and this journey to a new transformation. 👊👊 You can either watch me or join in. 😀😀👊
Don't scroll through social me and compare yourself to someone else just don't 🤨
Rainbow Baby? This shirt draws near to my heart. Its unfortunate, but there are many of us out there that can relate to and have experienced a rainbow baby, perhaps even more than one. I have two and God had a plan for me when he blessed me with both of my boys. I didnt realize it at the time because my heart was broken from my two miscarriages. Looking back now I better understand His plan and His outcome was perfect. #rainbowbaby #miscarriage #rainbowafterthestorm #perfectbaby #preciousinhissight #TrustinGodsplan
“When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
Gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me
Look out ‘cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me”
I always listen to this song when days are tough and I feel that I’m losing myself to the battle.
It’s hard to talk to anyone anymore about anything. They’ve stopped wanting to listen or care because this eventually became a burden to them. It’s especially disappointing when they say it to my face. I only pray for the rainbow after the rain to show up. After all, I have to remember that I’m the only one who can help myself.
Come on now, positive thoughts💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

Ooo bubba I’m in trouble 💙
Today was a day of joyous celebration!
We celebrated our beautiful miracle of a rainbow baby boy that is due to arrive in May.🌈 through many months of trying, bitterly getting rid of almost ALL of my boy things from Charlie and Alex after my loss last January, and having people ask over and over why my kids are all so far apart I realized that the rainbow after the storm has been worth it all.
I can’t get over the LOVE that was shown to us today and can’t begin to express how grateful we are for everyone that celebrated us today.
A special thank you to my mom and good friend Kelly for all the planning, time, and beautiful work you both put in to make me feel so loved. I love you both so much!❤️

Ever had a church sermon absolutely wreck you?
Put you in your place and give you the ultimate reality check?
Make you realize that the things you complain about are often what some people pray for?
Today was one of those days. And I’m stuck here reminding myself that there is beauty after pain, good out of bad, and happiness after the storms of life. If you’re in one of those storms, know that God’s got a plan for those tears.

She smile not because everything is perfect but because she knows God promised her a rainbow and the end of her storm
If you follow my Instagram stories, you may know that we had some fun experimenting with some smoke bombs tonight! 😍I still have a lot of work to do on the editing of those, so stay tuned for more on that this weekend.
BUT in the mean time, I couldn't help share a shot of this sweet couple. They're expecting their rainbow baby this spring 🌈
When you look at these photos what do you see?? A transformation should be just the other way around right?? On the left is the picture, the one where I have been in the best shape of my life.
On the right, it is the haviest I have been without being pregnant.
Last year stress, emotions, change of hormones happened.
I figured I got this all under control.
Come to think my weight just went up, my pants just started to get tighter and as a coach I felt guilty.
I went through some emotional hurt and still struggle with it at times.
But then a wonderful coach started to share Her journey that had done this way longer then me and she shared that if one goes through something hard one needs to give oneself GRACE!! So I will give myself grace. Love my body for what it is . But then also LOVE my body enough to want to be healthier again. I don't want to stay here.
I want to feel Energized again, full of life and Happy and I know it can happen.
I don't want to do this alone so I am asking you come with me on this journey.
I know it is a longer road ahead of me.
From over coming emotional eating to just facing the challenges of daily lives.
Starting March 26
