I was doing my makeup this morning (in my undies lol) telling Matthew I’ve been feeling gross lately... my skin is trash, bad body image feels, and just feeling blah about myself. And this guys STARTS HAVING A FULL ON PHOTO SHOOT 🤣 and telling me I’m not gross at all and I was running away telling him to stop but looked at the photos after & This one made me smile.
You can tell I was cracking up and went from feeling blah to happy. can I just tell you... I’m so lucky to have him 😩 he even said he’s excited for when I get my natural boobies back and told me I was gonna look hot 😩I freakin love this man.
It’s not uncommon to have these days sometimes, and that’s okay. Sometimes I’m super confident, sometimes I’m not. Sometimes I feel good about myself and my body, and other days it’s a meh. I just make it a point to do some self care - go to the gym, get a pedicure, do my makeup, my hair, go outside, and just do things that make me happy! And always remember we are our own worst critics. Cliche but it’s true 🤷🏼♀️
When your bf is literally a full course meal at a 5/5 restaurant on yelp. Obsessed with you @mattogus even though we both have the same good side and i let you have it every time 😝😍 #yeshesalwaysnaked#babydaddy
Fit chicks be like use your baby as a 20 lb weight!!! 😂 #ikid#throwingshadeatmyself
No but really. Poor babe is sick with a cold still so I haven’t wanted to take him to the daycare which means at home workout for mama! Now that he’s mobile and crawling everywhere, it’s so hard to do anything! He kept trying to eat my foot lmao and he was cracking up when I held him during the workout. I love him.
Would you guys be interested in more at-home workout ideas? This shown here isn’t a full workout, just snippets. On IG? Youtube? Both? Comment beloooow!

The love i have for this child is overwhelming!!!!
I get asked how i do it all like workout, cook, clean, work, take care of him, etc. To be honest, i don’t always do it all. Heck, a lot of things get pushed aside. Gray is #1, then comes my pups, my clients, and everything else is when I get to it. That means the house is a mess most of the time. My personal creative projects don’t come first. And that’s ok. It’s hard and can be overwhelming at Times, but I just do the best I can. Being a SAHM is hard work, and then trying to work on top of that seems almost impossible sometimes 😩😂
As for working out and eating healthy though, that is a hugeeee priority to me. And IMO, that is the farthest thing from selfish. Working out makes me a better mother because i feel better, it relieves stress, it’s my “me time” where i get an hour to myself which i need, etc. taking care of myself first means i will take better care of Grayson. If i have little sleep, no alone time, anxiety through the roof, I’m unhappy, then obviously i won’t be my best around Gray. I want to be healthy, lively, happy, well rested, and low stress when I’m around him. Kids pick up on energy, so i try not to get stressed or impatient, although it does happen sometimes let’s be real. Kids also absorb everything around them, so being an example for Gray is important to me. Staying healthy and taking care of myself will show him that it’s important, too. Eating nutritious foods sets him up for a healthier life and a wider palette. I want to show him that staying active is important for physical and mental health.
Also.... Grayson’s gains are better than all of us 🤷🏼♀️
