I got to be a guest speaker on an incredible 5 week course by @you .tu.toi on my night of presenting I shared why I started DAZE. After leaving my office job to go on maternity leave I found myself taking endless photos of my new baby boy... only to realise I wasn’t in any of the photos... lots of hubby though I was missing in all those moments. My reason of why I started my business is simple.. to capture the forever memories. I sit on the edge of my seat once I hit send on another gallery... waiting for the reply of how I made that Family feel. I followed my passion with a few people not thinking it would work (found my new people in the process ) And I’ll continue to click away behind my camera until my fingers stop working. So find your forever job and chase that dream... you just never know where it will lead you.

🤗 Why I do what I do..... . My business combines all the things I'm good at and love. Pretty fabulous right! I love meeting new people and helping them learn one of the most important things you can do, how to save a little one's life. Another positive side effect of my classes is giving new parents more confidence in themselves and what they are doing is right. Oh and I've mentioned the baby cuddles before haven't I 😘 . Running my own business gives me my own direction in life and shows my girls that whatever you put your mind too you can do it! .

Maybe the weight you need to loose isn’t on your body.⁣ ⁣ Think about that for a second. How many times a day do you walk passed a mirror and nit pick? How many times have you beaten yourself up because Christmas cards didn't go out as planned? Or that no matter what you do, you can't seem to make this co-parenting thing run smoothly? Or the voices in your head that have held you back from doing that thing you have been wanting to do for what seems like forever.⁣ ⁣ Maybe it’s the weight of the pressure.⁣ Maybe it’s the weight of perfection. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣ Maybe it’s the weight of single parenthood. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣ Maybe it’s the weight of doubt.⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣ Whichever weight it is, it's time to set it down friend. Remember, those little eyes are watching and absorbing and they do and will continue to mimic you. So let's lift some of that weight so that load isn't too heavy. ⁣ ⁣ There is only one person who can change your life and you guessed it, it’s you : ). But you don't have to do it alone. There is a community of women who are supportive, fun as heck to be around and don't focus so much on the scale. You'll get workouts, nutrition plans you can follow or adopt to your needs, accountability, support and encouragement. ⁣ ⁣ Drop your favorite emoji below or just say Hi and we will get you enrolled. ⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣ My entire fitness journey changed with one decision and that decision is now influencing my children's lives in the most positive ways. It's become part of my family's DNA and I am so proud of that.

Happy Wednesday! I have a special request to all you mothers & fathers out there. If you have a little girl, please do a few things for me (in addition to telling her how much you love her every day ) Tell her how important it is for a woman to have a normal period. Do not use words like fat or skinny. Instead, define being beautiful as being healthy. Educate her on the importance of animal based nutrition, whole food sources, & how things in packages are not real food. Please don’t demonstrate to your daughter any fear or restriction of real, whole foods due to body image. Kids are always watching.   Encourage her to find balance & to find peace in the little things. Had I understood the importance of getting my menstrual cycle while growing up, I never would have let my hypothalamic amenorrhea linger for the last 10 years. A regular cycle means so much more than just bleeding, it means properly functioning hormones and other bodily processes - things that can significantly contribute to or chip away at your quality of life. Had Sarah and I not honestly analyzed our health 3 months ago (beyond external appearance ), we’d still be carrying on with our old normal - allowing years and years of skewed views of what’s attractive defy our self worth & actions. This is not a reflection of how I was raised by my lovely mother who is my BFF, rather how I let external influences cloud my judgement. I am uncertain when I personally will get my period back, but I’ll forever value this current journey that I’m on for forcing me to slow down and find an appreciation of balance in all areas of my life.

My Caption Repost✨ Deaths, confusion, loss, depression, postpartum, the feel of loneliness, balancing businesses, suppressing emotions so I can be the best mom, friend,mate etc almost ruined me! I was spiraling and no one noticed or cared in my mind until I lost it. I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. I needed to finally feel every emotion I’ve been masking and shed the dead weight. I’m not 100% yet but I’m RELOADED✨ #MyTruth #ASnippetOfMyStory #BeatingMyBattles #BeTheVibe #IAmTheVibe #MyVibeCEO #9monthspostpartum #PostpartumIsReal #Motherhood #SheddingForARebirth #inspire #PositiveRoleModel #LivingAndLearning #Dancer #youthdance #dancemoms

In case there is someone who needs to hear this...⠀ ⠀ Wear the freaking shorts!⠀ ⠀ 10 years ago i was a girl who would wear a cardigan and jeans while at the lake in August.⠀ ⠀ I remember this day very vividly. We were celebrating a friends birthday at their cottage and as everyone was getting ready for the night, I was silently cringing because it was so hot, but I didn’t ever wear shorts.⠀ ⠀ I didn’t wear shorts because I was uncomfortable, insecure, and embarrassed by my body.⠀ ⠀ I hid under layers of clothes uncomfortable and did nothing about it.⠀ ⠀ I had always had bigger hips and legs so I assumed, I would never be the girl who felt comfortable and confident in shorts.⠀ ⠀ Gosh, I have come so far. ⠀ ⠀ Yesterday I not only worked out in shorts, I filmed it and shared it on my Instagram story which is HUGE for me.⠀ ⠀ This would have NEVER happened 10, 5, or even 3 years ago. I have always felt embarrassed about the way my legs jiggle, the dimples of the cellulite. ⠀ ⠀ But yesterday in the 90 degree weather, I was so grateful that I changed my mindset and stopped settling for feeling uncomfortable.⠀ ⠀ Many people see me today and think “welp, she has always been in shape or been confident”.⠀ ⠀ Ha, not even close. I share these stories and these pictures with you because I want you to know, you don’t have to settle for being uncomfortable. ⠀ ⠀ You DESERVE to be comfortable and confident in your own skin.⠀ ⠀ So let me say it again friend...⠀ ⠀ WEAR THE FREAKING SHORTS.

*Physical Play*⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The @guardian reported that joint research from Cambridge University's faculty of education and the LEGO foundation have released findings from a study into how parents play with children aged 0-3 and the impact on child development. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While there are many similarities in how mothers and fathers play, it found that fathers tend to engage in more boisterous and physical games like tickling, chasing, and piggy-back rides. Researchers claim this appears to help children to learn to control their feelings later in life.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Children who benefited from this type of play with their fathers were, according to the study, less likely to display hyperactivity, emotional or behavioural difficulties. They also appeared to be able to control their aggression and were less likely to lash out at other children during disagreements at school. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The idea is that rough and tumble play in early years helps children control their strength and learn when things have gone too far – as well as experiencing sadness or upset if maybe daddy steps on their toe by accident. It's a safe environment teaching children how to respond.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The study also noted that children who lived with just their mother or in households where the father couldn't engage in play of this sort need not be at a disadvantage. All parent-child interactions in the early years are linked to positive cognitive developments. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ....So mummy's and daddy's time to get playing! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #learnthroughplay #playtime #earlyyears #eyfs #toddlers #infants #play #toddlerplay #baby #childhood #fathers #positiverolemodel

I was nervous going out to run this morning. It's just over a week since I hurt my calf muscle and, although it feels a million times better (and stood up to a strength session by @coach_maggie_lawler and a HIIT session with @donnadunnefitness ) I'm still very aware of it. So when Fia asked if she could come with me I knew it would be the perfect way to make myself keep my pace slow and take a few walking breaks in between. Plus I love that she likes to run so I'll always encourage it. In the end, the calf felt fine, just a bit stiff from the aforementioned efforts over the past few days. Lesson learned: be a bit kinder to my body and stop trying to hammer it into the ground. In the long run this kind of behaviour only impedes my progress. #recover #injured #postnatalrunning #postpartumfitness #postnatalfitness #postpartumrunning #returntorunning #listentoyourbody #family #running #runner #daughter #beapositiveinfluence #positiverolemodel #foodsweatandtears #youngrunners #thisgirlcan

Sometimes it is easier to make ourselves smaller so that we don't make others feel uncomfortable. Managing the comfort zone of others is not your responsibility. Be brave, be yourself and make no apologies about it 👊

The girl on the left is finishing up the extremely important job of growing a human. She is tired. And swollen. And bummed about the 45 pounds she gained. But knows it is part of the process and is doing the best she can to be ok with it. ⠀ ⠀ The girl on the right is full of energy (most days ) and pride. She feels vibrant, strong, and full of joy. She hardly remembers the hardships the girl on the left was experiencing. ⠀ ⠀ Life is full of seasons. Seasons of growth (in lots of different ways ) and seasons of maintenance. Seasons of surviving and seasons of thriving. Embrace the season you’re in and know that life is a journey. You never “arrive”. ⠀ ⠀ Take a moment to reflect on your season. Are you there because it’s where you need to be, or because it’s comfortable? There’s a huge difference. If it’s where you need to be then be there and give it your all. But if you’re just hanging there because you’re comfortable...maybe it’s time to grow outside of your comfort zone. ⠀ ⠀ I’m starting a new program July 7th. I will be focusing on fitness + nutrition. I’m looking for gals who want to commit to this program with me so we can encourage and support one another. There is so much energy and joy to be had when you’re on the journey with others. ⠀ ⠀ If the season is right for you, I would love to have you join 💜

“Don’t fear moving slowly forward, fear standing still.” . I'm not one to make a big deal about today. I've always had a hard time receiving. I often wonder at what point in my life did receiving become a negative in my book, to the point that I almost feel shame and want to avoid it at all cost. Anyone else feel this way? Over the years I have worked on things like just saying thank you when someone gives me a compliment, that was hard too. . But you know what I decided? I decided that today is going to be different. Today I am going to take a moment and celebrate ME because people, I am pretty damn awesome and if you know me personally, you KNOW what I'm talking about. So raise a glass (of water ), do a lap, share a rainbow or just make sarcastic comments all day long in my honor because today is the day I made my debut into this beautiful and amazing world, this density and this life. . The Happiest of Birthdays to the Best and the Worst of me because if I were missing just one piece, one part, I would not be me. Here's to another amazing year. Here’s to me trying to take a decent pic 🤣 Life is beautiful and so are you. xoxo, MK

Woah baby, I moved my body this morning. Started with 40 min of cardio and abs, moved to a 2.30 mile run, and ended with around a 40 min bike ride up and down hills.

Transformation Tuesday! . A completely different kind of post for us today but still centred around food/diet and lifestyle. 🍽 🏃‍♂️ . When me and Adam got together almost 4 years ago he was at the beginning of quite a drastic weight loss and lifestyle change. Since then we've welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world and become husband and wife. Like most I think we've both naturally inherited the Mummy and Daddy bods whilst surviving first time parenthood. . At the beginning of lockdown Adam said that he wanted to make some changes to reinvent himself. One of which was to lose the weight he'd gained since we got together and improve his diet and fitness all round. . The pictures speak for themselves but the focus and determination and RESEARCH into positive diet and exercise changes has led to health benefits in everyway! . Check out our story/highlights for Adam's journey if you want to know more. He has been very humble and quiet about the whole thing but I thought it deserved a share as he has come so far and continues to maintain his healthy lifestyle to be a positive role model for our daughter. I couldn't be prouder ❤ @adamroutley @shutter_prop #transformationtuesday #ateameats #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #weightlossbeforeandafter #lifestylechange #healthyeating #healthylifestyle #lifestylechangenotadiet #lifestylechoice #lifestylechoices #rolemodel #positiverolemodel #allaboutbalance

Have you ever considered joining me in my fitness journey!?!?⠀ ⠀ If you have followed me or been friends with me for a while, you have watched at home workouts change me life.⠀ ⠀ Yes, I said change my life.⠀ ⠀ Sure I still run and do the occasional group fitness class, but 95% of the time I am workout out in my living room.⠀ ⠀ These at home workouts have gotten me through...⠀ ⠀ ✅ 1 pregnancy that I worked out up until the day before I delivered⠀ ✅ 2 postpartum journeys where I lost the 55+ pounds I gained during pregnancy⠀ ✅ Postpartum depression⠀ ✅ The loss of my Dad⠀ ✅ Anxiety so bad I didn’t know if I would ever feel “normal” again⠀ ⠀ Over the last 4 years, these workouts have been a constant in my life. At least 5 days per week, I log into my virtual fitness app and do my workout right in my living room.⠀ ⠀ It is my “me time”.⠀ These workouts help me manage my anxiety and give me energy for the day.⠀ I take time for myself, so I can be a Mom who is patient, energetic, and who plays with my kids.⠀ ⠀ Am I perfect!?! HECK NO.⠀ ⠀ Some days I am anxious. Some days I am inpatient with my kids. Some days I would rather sleep in or take a nap instead of doing my workout.⠀ ⠀ I am human, but MOST days I make myself a priority.⠀ ⠀ And I am helping women make themselves a priority as well. I have a group of women who check in daily with their workouts. They cheer each other on and motivate each other.⠀ ⠀ And YOU CAN JOIN US! ⠀ ⠀ There is 2 days left to save $20 on the total fitness and nutrition package and join us for July! ⠀ ⠀ If you have eve considered joining me NOW is the time!! ⠀ ⠀ Message me for details!

Hands up for keeping our kids away from diet culture! 🙌 . So many clients tell me their struggles with foods and body image started in childhood. Sara said: “As a kid, I saw my mom on diet after diet. But I thought that was just how things were - criticism of bodies and food choices were kind of the norm. I didn’t know until recently that not everyone lives like that, that level of stress and anxiety and obsession with food.” . And Sara is right: it doesn’t have to be like that! You can break out of the diet cycle and stop feeling stressed and anxious around foods. Meal times can be relaxed and enjoyable when you’re eating to feel good rather than to meet diet rules. . And the best part is your kids will see this too and it will be their normal! Imagine if your own mom had had a healthy relationship with food - would you have struggled all these years? Or would you have learned to love food for all that it can do for your body? . Sara did it, and you can do it too! She feels free and confident in her food choices now, and she models this every day for her kids. She feels free and enjoys all foods with her family, and is happy to see that it helps her daughters be more accepting of new foods too! . I empower moms like you to regain a healthy relationship with food and confidently enjoy all foods with your family! I’m accepting online 1:1 clients now - click the link in my bio to apply 💚 . #dietfreemom #healthyrelationshipwithfood #preventdisorderedeating #enjoyallfood #healthymomhealthykids #intuitiveeatingfamily #foodfreedom #nobadfoods #rolemodelmom #momlifebelike #goodmoodfood #guiltfreefood #foodnotfear #dietsdontwork #enddietculture #positiverolemodel #enjoyfoodenjoylife #stressfreeeating #raisehealthyeaters #losehatenotweight #familymeals #healthyfamilymeals

You're probably familiar with the old saying, once bitten, twice shy. It describes a painful uncertainty many of us feel every day as we try to engage with other people. Acts of betrayal from our pasts can lead us into long cycles of wariness and mistrust. An inability to trust wisely can lead us to loneliness and isolation, or worse--putting our trust in the wrong people to easily. The good news is that the ability to trust is both a choice and a skill that you can develop. You do not have to be controlled by the past. To a child, trust is a feeling that comes and goes, always under the influence of other people. Only as an adult can you learn how and when to trust more wisely.🙌❤ 🙏Let the record show Sophia no longer fears the water. She is no longer afraid of the deep end. She knows how to swim now. She put her trust in a neighbor friend and this girl taught her how to swim, and even got her brave enough to jump in the deep end by herself. She was 10. Sophia is 9. Thank you God for good friends!🙌❤ #conqueringfears #thankgodforfriends #childrenofGod #positiverolemodel

It has been such a pleasure showcasing Mel, Amelie and Daisy’s progress this week.  We wanted to end the week with an amazing video made by Daisy for the Young People’s Trust for the Environment’s real world brief that took place inside one of our Jams a few weeks ago. This is what Mel said about making the video inside the Virtual Lights On® Academy Group: “Daisy's focus waned whilst we struggled to work out editing, but once I got the basic hang of it, I was able to guide her, and her interest grew! I had to seriously model not giving up when learning this. The struggle was real! Well done Daisy!” And well done to you too Mel! Lights On® learning starts with the parent understanding how their own mindset and decisions influence their children and working on themselves to be able to help their children. After a short space of time Mel is understanding this and putting what she is learning inside the Academy into practice. We love Daisy’s camouflage video. How many times did you have to watch it before you spotted all the animals? Let us know in the comments! The doors to our Academy are currently closed however we are still holding weekly Jams where you can get a taste of what Lights On® learning is all about.

We are literally the sum of all our past thoughts, beliefs and experiences. If you want to make changes, it’s about overcoming the past, choosing not to be defined by it and surrendering to the future ✨ I think so much of personal development and growth in general is about not getting fixated on the outcome and being more present, enjoying life how it currently is and trusting everything that is meant to be, will come at the right time 💖

You might be watching my posts and stories thinking .... that skincare business is great for her but it’s “not for me”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I didn’t think it was for me either! I didn’t want to be “that girl” who sold something on social media. I was (and still am some ) afraid of what others might think. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, this is what I have learned about being “that girl”: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🔸 I set goals and hit them. 🔸 I inspire others to set their goals and crush them. 🔸I show my boys what hard work is. 🔸No one else is paying my bills so it’s up to me. 🔸I share skincare with others that makes them feel more confident. 🔸I help women understand the value of a Plan B before they “need” it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Therefore, I am proud to be “that girl”! 😍

After posting my article the other day titled “advice to my daughter”, I had one reader comment this: “My mom pinched her flab from her 117lb body and called herself a “fat pig”. I got my hands on dexatrim as soon as I could .Thank you for changing this narrative one daughter at a time.” I immediately starting crying. I know she’s just 1 human, but I will make sure this little love always knows she is beautiful just the way she is. Always... 👩‍❤️‍👩👩‍❤️‍👩👩‍❤️‍👩 Does anyone feel like they ALWAYS felt good about their looks growing up? I know I certainly didn’t.

Growing doesn’t just refer to his size and appearance (look at that big boy haircut 😭 ), it also refers to his character growing and forming. Reality is he will learn most things from Nick and I. He is watching us, right now, in this season. It’s more important to find joy and have faith through the hard times because he is watching us. Yep miscarriage is hard, these last few days have been a roller coaster. Let me clarify though, it’s been a roller coaster of emotions, not faith. I cry and I get sad, that’s okay, but at the end of the day we have to trust God’s plan for our life. We have to model to Giulian that even during the tough times we can have joy and spread joy. We must teach him that we are not victims, that Jesus is victorious 🙏🏻🙌🏻. We must focus on the blessings and stay strong, so that one day when he walks through a tough season, he will do the same. How are you showing up in a challenging season?
