plexus

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 presetSo, I’m a new mama to twins via c-section, right? So, I have a bit of a belly that says “a couple people used to live here” and as much as I loved being pregnant, I don’t love my vacant baby belly.

So, I’ve decided to take charge of my health and body by using Plexus! It took me a bit to hop off the fence and take the plunge but I did and I’m really excited about it. Not only because it will effect my body, but mainly because of the health benefits that will result in using the products. I’m much more comfortable with the products because they aren’t quick weight loss/diet pills that are harmful to your body. Plexus addresses health from the inside out; it targets the why behind health issues. Not curing them, just as exercise isn’t a cure all, but it definitely helps!

Now, before y’all start talking about how great I look (which I really appreciate) and how I just need to start working out and eating clean to achieve the same results I gotta be real about a few things.

I’m back down to my pre-pregnancy weight so that’s not a concern and I know my evacuated belly really isn’t all that bad in the grand scheme of things, in addition to it only being two months, one week, and five days since my little princesses arrived… they practically just got here – but, who’s counting! …. and, even though I’ve been cleared to work out, I’m realizing after a few home workout sessions that my body is NOT ready for that yet. After having the “c-section burn” for about a week, I totally listened to my body and tossed the sports bra back and work out gear to the side. We’re not ready yet. Although I’m no gluten free, totally clean eating type of healthy eater, I think I do okay and I’ve always been an active person. Β While I’m a definite believer in nutrition and exercise as a way to combat health issues, Plexus products will address and alleviate some of the issues that have been a part of my life even with regular exercise for some time.

Nevertheless, I’m pretty pumped about gaining control of my health and look forward to feeling better all around!

I’ll be posting progress pictures and giving you deets on how Plexus is working for me!

………… and, in addition to me using this product, I’m selling it, too!! So, if you’re interested in knowing more about it and how it can help you reach your health goals, lemme know! You can email me at unashamedgrowth@gmail.com! :)

proud mama

(null)

You know when you don’t have kids, people always talking about their kids is annoying. Really annoying.
And, I get that because until you’re a parent you just don’t get it.

You don’t.

And, that’s completely okay because I wouldn’t want anyone to ever understand what it’s like to be a mama until they’re a mama. Until you have sweet babies in your arms that you care for at all times and that you watch grow in ways most other people won’t think twice about. Until you see them respond to your voice initially with blinking eyes, then turning their head, smiles, then laughs. The joyful response at your voice will certainly turn to annoyance at some point, but for now their responses warm every piece of your heart and cause you to beam from the inside out. You’ll never know what it’s like to see your personality come out of another person until it does. It’s hilarious and you want to laugh and share it with everyone- it’s the other mamas (and, daddies too) who will laugh along with you and share stories of their own.(null)The fact that I love these little people more and more everyday isn’t surprising because that kinda thing happens when you truly like AND love a person…… But how big can that love get?

I’m grateful. I can never say that enough. These girls understanding WHY they are so special is what I hope to teach them. That they’re amazing not only because their mama believes that they are, not only because they’re created by a perfect God, but also because they are real life examples of God answering prayers and giving your heart exceedingly and abundantly more than you prayed for and exactly what your heart desired.(null)I’m having a blast raising them – teaching them everyday that they matter and that they are important, that I can be depended on, and that they are loved. I love playing with them. I love how they teach me to laugh and not take things so seriously. That shirts get stained, that things get lost, and mistakes are made; there’s a lesson in getting past things that aren’t FUN while still remaining joyful.

My hope is to continue to raise young ladies I can respect, enjoy, learn from, be corrected & challenged by, and proud of throughout their lifetime and mine. And, vice versa. Because, if we can’t do life together like that, I’ve missed the mark.(null)

May we know them.
May we be them.
May we raise them.”

Lola’s redemption

So for those of you who don’t know, I’ve given my hair a moniker. It’s Lola. She (my hair) even has a Insta account (@lo.lah)…….. It’s a serious matter, k?

Okay. I promised to post pictures of my hair after the rod set. Here ya go. These are stills of a video I posted to both our Instas. ;)

(null) all you need is a blow dryer, flexi rods, gel, and a moisturizer. I used Eco Styler Gel and Shea Moisture Smoothie! When rolling your hair, twist the rod around your hair so that it will spiral, don’t just roll your hair on the rod. I wanted “big” hair, so I used less gel on the length of my hair and more on the ends to make sure it dried smoothly!!!
It’s rainy today so that kinda stinks bc we all know what happens to straight (“straight” in this case) natural hair when water hits it. While a bit of humidity helped it out, I’m still going to be racing for the door as quickly as I can!!

Have a great weekend, y’all!!
