When Should I Have Another Baby?

Happy Monday!

 

We’ve all been there.  Struggling with indecision: “Honey, should we have another baby?  If so, when?” I wanted to discuss this topic today because I often wonder, when is the right time anyway?

 

Let me know in the comments below how you went or plan on going about choosing the answer to this question.

 

Here’s the video from this morning’s episode of Parenting 411 on 2 Kasa Style on Kasa Fox.  Enjoy!

Mommy and Me Workouts + My Fitness Journey

Happy Monday!

 

Today was a very special edition of Parenting 411 because I got to bring my little guy on set with me (he is GREAT on camera btw!)

Now, many of you know my fitness journey, but if you don’t, feel free to check out my book and this video for more history on how I lost my baby weight. Overall, I gained 55 pounds (although my midwife recommended 25-30!) due to my insatiable appetite.

 

Honestly, I have no regrets on my pregnancy. I feel as though it went just as it was supposed to…stretch marks and all.

 

Check out the video from today’s segment of Parenting 411 and let me know what you do to stay in shape with your children!

Love,

Today on Parenting 411, we discussed a very controversial topic: immunizations for your children.

 

I personally chose to vaccinate my son to protect him from preventable illnesses.  Will I do that with my future kids?  Most likely; although I am still learning a lot on the pros and cons to child immunizations, so I cannot tell for sure.

 

What do you think?  Do you believe in vaccinations for your baby or not?  Why or why not?  I’d love to hear in the comments below.

Conversation on Life, Love, and Purpose with Stephanie Fleitas

Share Button

 

I got to sit down with Miss Stephanie Fleitas recently to discuss the topics I love most–love, intuition, authenticity, defying conformity, and more.

 

As I suspected, this woman is wise beyond her years and offered many eye opening ideas on life overall.

 

I first found her unexpectedly on YouTube during her interview with Teal Swan and Elliot Hulse. Realizing we shared a lot of similar values and ideas, I decided to reach out to her.

 

As a mild warning: I will let you know that we were quite open on the topics listed above, and that is why I loved connecting with Stephanie: no bullshit; just straight, honest truth about where we are in our lives right now.

 

So, I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did!

Hola!

Today, I had a blast co-hosting with the Face of Fox, Brittany Flowers.  In the video below for Parenting 411, we discuss how us moms can not only cope, but thrive when daddy is away and we are left to parent alone.

 

 

 

You can find the rest of the segments from today’s show under the ‘TV Appearances’ tab!

Tried my Competition Bikini on Today…

Kinda scary putting this on after having a baby!

I woke up today wondering what the heck my body looked like in my competition bikini ( I hadn’t tried it on in months).

Not bad for no filter.

 

 

 

As you know, I’ve been dancing with the idea of competing in a fitness competition.  But between running my home business, my restaurant, school, and dance rehearsals, I’ve given myself a pass to do it when time permits as to not overwhelm myself.

The thing about ambitious spirits as that we never are doing enough.  I love goal setting, and accomplishing said goals–(Write book. Have baby. Start blog. Etc.)  I do not let fear stop me from pursuing things that are uncomfortable.  Ever.  I do not wait until perfection to take risks (if I did that, I wouldn’t have the very things I love most in life!).

 

So today, I dare you to do something that scares you–this could be anything–wearing a 2 piece at the pool, trying out a new gym, or even calling that guy you’ve been dreaming about!

 

Life is soooo short.  My biggest fear is not failure, but instead, dying with my music still in me.  The pain of regret is worse than the pain of rejection.  So, do you.  Screw what others have to say about what you should be doing.

So what are you going to do today that stretches your comfort zone?  Let me know in comments below.
