Oh, this boy. He’s way ahead of the game. Since he was little he’s been on this insane growth curve. He’s huge & his physical development is advanced. And well looky here. He’s sitting. Which began at 4 months + 1 week. I’m not ready for this! But we’ve been following his lead. Lord knows hes a good eater. He’s packing on the pounds & is crazy long. & has been in the exersaucer since his two month birthday. We’ve just listened. & look at him go!

& I’ve been listening too. I’m aching to get back to a good fitness routine. I’ve been so tired with the little man’s lack of sleep that I just couldn’t find the energy. But it’s time. Tired or not, my body just needs to stand a little taller. Get a little [lot] stronger. I’m ready, but I’m changing things up a bit. My old crossfit routine was getting boring, so I am back to my old tried & true Max Fitness. I love this book. It felt so good today. & ten years ago when I completed the book, I was in the best shape of my life. I’m four pounds from my pre-Everett weight–but I don’t care. I know I need that little belly pouch to make milk. I did with caroline; it’s no different now. But that doesn’t mean I can’t get stronger. So my goal is hit the garage three times a week & follow the sequential Max Fitness workouts. They are quick–running + pushing & pulling my own body weight. Something I really enjoy. So here’s to listening to the body! ;)


& Project 52 is off to a very collaborative start! If you’d like to join in–it’s not too late. Here’s everything you need to know about

Hi! Hello! I am Shawna, the founder of Styleberry Blog. This creative corner of the internet has become a learning haven for moms and creatives, offering a warm and encouraging nudge to those who wish to be better and do better, but often don't know where to start. From Decorating to DIY to Diapers and Paleo-ish Dishes, I strive to make the complicated simple and empower women to take action beyond their personal comfort zone. I subscribe to the Shine Theory & so strongly believe that we shine when the women around us shine and mutual support—lifting up instead of tearing down--will always be the culture here. Are you in? I hope so! Beyond the computer, I run Styleberry Creative where I work with clients to create low fuss, high function spaces that are pretty and practical in San Antonio, Texas and beyond. I LOVE making a house a home. My own studs out renovation is now complete and I am now back to working with clients. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line if you'd like to work together! I hope you’ll join me on this fun new adventure! Xo.
