Just got back from the park and realized I got paid a day early!! 🙌🏻🥳 Bills paid, and put the rest into savings for my car! 🚗 Even got Joey down for a nap! 😏 I’m so super excited!! Everything is coming together in life! I’m so thankful to have found a job that I can work literally from anywhere and STILL get to own my time every single day! 🥂

The photo before 👉🏻 THE photo.
Don’t be fooled by all those pretty insta mom blogs, y’all. To every perfectly posed photo, we’ve got 500 of these exasperated ones. We just choose which we’d like you to see 😉
All that aside, we’ve absolutely crushed our morning here in the Dotson household!
Bub slept in until 8:30. We colored and had breakfast. Played with stickers. Put away all the laundry AND went through all of Forrest clothes and made a huge donate pile. Vacuumed TOGETHER, which bub loves! He turns on mine and then turns his on and trails behind me. When we were all did he set his vacuum next to mine and said “away mommy”. I friggin love him.
I think it’s about time to whip out the play doh (one of Forrest’s new favorite activities) before lunch and nap! And later today on the agenda is some water fun and zucchini bread making!🥒🍞 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
HAPPY FREAKIN MONDAY, folks!
Surprise mail days are the best days!📦 ✨
Got another fun package from my company, thanking me for the hard work I’ve put in and milestones I’ve hit in my business the last 3 months.
I’ve earned tank tops and t-shirts, to cutting boards and kitchen supplies, even branded board games!
All which seem very minute compared to the trip to Punta Cana that I was recently invited to for this very same reason! 🤯🏝 Ya, holy shit right?
I’ve watched so many top coaches in this company be spoiled. Though I’m not a top coach (yet😉), I’m still working my ass off and reaping the benefits.
Don’t get me wrong though, it’s not about the free stuff or extravagant retreats and trips - even though those are insane incentives.
It is and always will be about helping other women in the way I’ve been helped. Helping postpartum moms find the time to take care of themselves, to pour back into themselves. Helping women realize how attainable a consistent fitness routine can be and how that can change your friggin life! It’ll always be about community. And women supporting women. And empowerment. All through the fundamental value of fitness and caring for our bodies. The bodies that have carried and cared for us, deserve to be taken care of, nurtured and made strong.
Forever thankful + grateful to have found this company and all that coaching is and enables me to be and do. It has changed my life and now I get to build a business helping women do the same damn thing. Earn the same incentives, come on the same retreats and be invited to the same trips all while helping other women.
And it’s just the beginning, y’all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Today’s workout was called TOTAL BODY BADASS, and let me tell you, it 100% left me feeling like a badass.
These moves are so freaking unique, unlike any workout I’ve done before. These are called flying scorpions 🦂
A killer shoulder, core and leg move. I know they don’t look that hard, but give them a shot for 30 seconds on each leg and then let me know how you feel 😉
Day 4 of this new program in the books! Opening enrollment SOON for my August accountability group. We’re over halfway through the year now - are you still crushing your January goals? Remember, watching my progress is not going to get you progress. Link in my bio to do the damn thing with me, find consistency + get freakin results 🔥
Thank god for a job that ENCOURAGES expression and doesn’t dispel it.
Seriously, this was one of the first thoughts I had after dying my hair! Thank goodness I didn’t have a boss or job I had to walk into fearful of being fired or looked down upon because I decided I wanted my outsides to match my insides.
I loved my job as a preschool teacher before having Forrest, but I didn’t love the fear that came with what parents thought about me if they judged me solely on my nose ring and tattoos. And I sure as hell would not have been allowed to roll into work with this new do!
I’ve carried some of that doubt and fear of judgement into motherhood though... I’ve talked about my stance on cropped shirts as a mama. But bright-a** blue hair is a whole other ballpark.
If you ask Colb how long I’ve been wanting to make this change he can attest the back and forth battle I’ve had. “I already am/look young, what are people going to think now that I have colored hair?”
“Will people judge me when they see me with Forrest?”
“Will people write me off at first glance?”
“Will people assume I’m immature and unfit to be a mom?”
“Will people think I’m his nanny or sister?” These are all questions I wrestled with! To which I came to the conclusion of......
I know who I am as a mother. I KNOW WHO I AM AS A MOTHER!
And that is all that matters.
Something I didn’t even give a second thought to however, was how it would affect my business.
Coaching has been such a catalyst for me. My fitness journey has been one of so much self growth and discovery as well. Coaching has helped me come alive in a sense!
I was so excited to make this change and show my girls. To show all of you! I didn’t fear what my team would think because I knew they already accepted me because they know me. Because I’ve built my business by being myself and showing up wholly and transparently. I’ve never felt more myself, truly.
I wondered if maybe this would be a phase I looked back on and laughed at. And maybe it still will be, but for right now all I know and all I care about is that I am happy. And that I feel even more confident in who I am. As a mother, a coach and a human being...(cont)
A moms night out last night started with @betweenardenthearts
working her wizardly makeup skills on my face, kicked off with a spontaneous trip to the piercing shop, followed by really spicy fish tacos + deep talks (my fav) and ended with me crawling into bed at 12:30 - who am I?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Died my hair and pierced my nose (again) all in the same week...
I SWEAR I’M NOT GOING THROUGH A MIDLIFE CRISIS. 😅
Lynnéa, there is no other lady I’d rather sit on a toilet for an hour 1/2 with dying my hair, or getting my face beat beautifully or laying on a piercing table holding hands with. How did we not take one single picture together last night?!
Happy birthday to the sweetest baby!
1 year ago you came into this world and have blessed us all with your beautiful smiles and your silly laughter!
This year has been full of lessons, learning new things, googling everything possible, and many many sleepless nights. But it really did fly by in an instant and I already miss every single day!
Thank you for being you, little Logan and thank you for making me a mommy!
Happy 1st birthday to you, my sweet Logan and happy 1st birthday to me as a mom! It's been an amazing experience and I feel so grateful and blessed to be the person that gets to be by your side and watch you grow!
