Let’s get a lil peachy 🍑 to be entirely honest I don’t feel the mostttt comfortable posting this. Not because butts aren’t great (because they are). But fitness is a lot more than what your booty looks like 🤷🏻♀️ Your fitness isn’t determined by how great or big your butt is. And big butts are a trend who knows how long it’ll last 🙄
As I said in yesterday’s post, I don’t like doing any crazy posing, making anything look completely contorted, and that’s just because it doesn’t feel authentic nor do I walk around looking posed 24/7. Be proud of your progress, be proud of how far you’ve come, and if you’ve got it, absolutely flaunt it! .
But remember when your scrolling that the butts you are seeing on Instagram are often perfectly posed and sometimes edited. Do not worry about looking like someone’s perfect Instagram post in your everyday life. Everyone has different genetics and makeup, and not everyone is going to get the same results from working out. And you are worth so much more. To be honest, I also kinda hate the sexualization of fitness. It’s hard to avoid but it’s not what it’s all about. How do you feel about this? That being said if you do want to target your glutes here are some great exercises. But remember your butt is great regardless 🤷🏻♀️
🍑 Hip thrusts
🍑 Sumo Deadlifts
🍑 Back extensions
These aren’t the only exercises that target the glutes but they are some of my favourites! What’s yours? .

This little munchkin thinks it’s hilarious to wear underwear as a hat now. And pull everything out of drawers and throw it all over the house. I read that cleaning your house while your children are still awake, is like wiping your ass while you still have shit coming out lol. (Gotta love the Chive) but I’m going to keep fighting that fight 💪 #momlife#mommyblogger#lifewithkids#whatdididobeforekids#mommyunplugged#realtalk
Slide through any of these pictures... what do you see? Each one of them I posted to social media at one point with a somewhat happy message.
But the truth? Inside I was struggling deeply. I was hurting. I was scared. I felt like my kids deserved a different mom. I wondered if I would ever feel myself again. I wondered if my marriage was going to fall apart because I was breaking into pieces myself.
Remember this when you look through your feed and allow someone else’s hand-picked images to make you feel like they have it all and you don’t.
Remember this when you think a friend “seems” happy — to never “not” ask her if she is ok.
Be mindful of the reality of social media. Check in on each other. Check in on yourselves. Know that everyone is fighting some sort of battle. Talk more. Reach out more. Get face to face more.
Everyone needs someone. Including you. Reach out with a heart that lets others know your friendship is a safe space... and reach out when you need a safe space too.

ANXIETY + GOD WINKS
I would say I have had issues with anxiety for a while, but recently (the past year), it has gotten worse. Not sure why...age, food, head....all of the above. It’s not pretty and it’s not fun. Sometimes it’s “mild” and I get through it on my own. Other times I’m on a ledge and have had to have a friend or family member “talk me down” and through it. Sometimes it leads to a full blown attack where I can’t catch my breath and feel like my chest will explode, thankfully that hasn’t happened a lot, but it has happened. Other times it turns me into a hermit and I withdraw. .
This mug.....I wanted to find something’s for an Easter basket for my daughter, her hubs, and baby on the way💙. I went into a store. Bad idea...really busy and that’s one thing that triggers my anxiety. I was waiting for a text back from my daughter and saw this mug. I wanted it so bad but didn’t get it, couldn’t get it because my heart was pounding and getting worse...I had to leave. At that exact time, my husband called. God wink #1 . He talked to me until I was out of the store (empty handed) and to my car. Fast forward to this week shopping WITH my daughter (I am much better if I’m not alone)...we were walking through a store 6 hours away from the one I saw the mug in and there it was! The mug I wanted so badly but didn’t get. God wink #2 .
I’m working on my anxiety. Trying to find ways to deal with it...exercise (which I’m terribly inconsistent with), essential oils, creative outlets, breathing, and other things. Why am I sharing this? Because I’m sure I’m not alone, so wanted ya to know I’m right there with you. This is me, behind the pics and posts. Working to be a better version of me everyday. ❤️

BUT there is a way to live a more enjoyable life.💕 .
And that starts with the decision to BE BETTER!🧡 .
It may require some sacrifice. There will be struggles and some failures. But for goodness sake- please don’t wait for a doctor to tell you that you need to make healthier choices. .
Start today because you know you SHOULD. 🌟 .
I am walking proof- with a pretty adorable little family- that CHANGE is possible. If you decide to try.🙌🏻 .
Make the BEST of today. Make a change. Enjoy the journey. Do something today that your future self will thank you for💗 .

Je älter ich werde, desto kleiner wird mein Freundeskreis.
Ja der Bekanntenkreis ist riesig aber die Menschen, die ich meine Freunde nenne, sind echt an einer Hand abgezählt.
Umso intensiver jedoch diese Freundschaften.
Eine aufrichtige Freundschaft basiert auf Empathie, Loyalität und Ehrlichkeit. Sie ist der safe space in dieser absolut nicht safen Welt, in der viele verrückte Menschen herumlaufen.
An dieser Stelle möchte ich mich bei jedem Menschen bedanken, der es schafft mit seinem Verhalten dazu beizutragen, dass diese ganze craziness hier erträglich ist. 🌻💛
