Melanie Ford - Health & Mindset Coach

It is my mission to help women let go of the struggles and limiting beliefs that are no longer serving them so they can lead energetic, happy, spritually filled, empowered lives for the highest good of all.

Operating as usual

16 weeks and counting!

Everything is looking good and right on track. Head back in 4 weeks for the 20 week scan. Bonus points for not peeing my pants during the ultrasound.

We are definitely having a little baby boy 💙💙💙

Pregnancy symptoms:
Heart burn even with water
Slight nausea sometimes
Rob says I’m moody 🤷🏻‍♀️
Still need a nappy most days lol

Happy birthday baby boy! Mama and daddy love you so very much.

Officially 13 weeks today! Only 27 weeks till we meet our little babe and only 1 more week of this first trimester!!!
-
Nausea has definitely gotten better compared to week 10 & 11 minus the fact that I woke up the other night and almost hurled all over the hubby. Luckily I’m a good wifey and managed to hold it in til I got into the bathroom.
-
Exhaustion and inability to sleep through the night hasn’t changed much hopefully some relief will come with the second trimester.
-
We found out last week that I have a subchorionic hematoma below my placenta which caused some bleeding and gave me a minor heart attack. I don’t think I’ve ever been so scared in all my life. Luckily I also happened to have a Dr. appointment and ultrasound scheduled the following day which confirmed the issue. The baby is healthy & safe and all my lab tests have come back negative for chromosome issues.
-
We also now know what we are having!!! Any guesses???

I’m just gonna leave this right here....
-
Are you thinking thankful??? I know this can be difficult sometimes especially when we live in a world where everyone is showcasing their highlight reel. It’s easy to get pulled into the trap of comparison. All comparison will do is steal your joy and contentment.
-
Remember even BIG things started small!!!
-
So what are you grateful for today???

Financial Freedom!!! It’s something I’ve always dreamed about.
-
Those two words always send chills down my spine. Just the thought of not having the worry or stress around getting bills paid and making ends meet instantly relieves so much pressure from my chest and makes me feel like I can breathe.
-
Having debt is not something I’m proud of but it is very much a reality. I’m grateful for my job and and everything it provides me with, it just hasn’t been enough to really put a dent into some of my past spending habits and student loans.
-
But recently I’ve felt like this dream is finally turning into a big hairy audacious goal because I’ve finally found something that is going to help me turn this dream into a reality and I couldn’t be more grateful 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻.

I have always been the girl with the unruly curls/waves. As a little girl I can remember my dad always telling me to brush my hair cuz it looked like a “rat’s nest” even though I had just brushed it 🤷🏻‍♀️. I guess you could say Miss Frizzle had nothing on me 😂🤣😂. I had just accepted the fact that my hair is what it is and there was really nothing I could do about.
-
BUT then a few months ago while in a hair emergency due to thinning caused by all the stomach problems I was having, I came across these products and EVERYTHING changed!!!
-
Not only did I find relief from the thinning but my curls have never looked this good. It’s not your hair it’s your products - I had no idea that simply changing my shampoo and conditioner could have such a drastic impact on my hair.
-
Needless to say I jumped in head first because how could I not share these amazing products with the world???

Ch-ch-changes...
-
10 weeks & 1 day starting to get a little bump action or is it just bloat 🤷🏻‍♀️. Who knows but our little baby Duran is right on track and so far everything looks good.
-
Waiting on some lab work with hopefully continued good news in the next 5-7 days then head back to see doc and baby for another ultrasound and tests... the joys of being pregnant at 37 😂🤣😂
-
But if It gets me extra glimpses of the babe I’ll take it!

New month new goals!
-
Honestly I’ve been slacking when it comes to my business. I get squirrel brain very easily plus the thought of giving it 110% and still failing kinda freezes me in my tracks as well.
-
My goal for this month is to get out of my head and start doing!!! Forget the what if’s, push the fear aside and just try a little bit more each day. Rome wasn’t built in a day and you’ve got to work your business in order for it to grow.
-
Consistency is where it’s at!
-
What goals are you shooting for this month?

I wanted to take a second today to give my bestie for life a shout out. We’ve been friends since the first grade and she was even crazy enough to follow me out to Phoenix on a whim. What more could a girl ask for in bestie. Kerri thank you for always being there for me and supporting me in all my crazy ideas. Love you to the moon and back!

Sunday mood...
-
I have to remind myself a lot that it’s okay to just chill and rest when I need to. 98% of the time that long to do list can wait.
-
The world will continue to turn even if there’s laundry to be done, dishes in the sink, errands to be ran.
-
Trying to be better about not stressing or placing timelines around things that simply don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.
-
What’s your plan for this Sunday???

-
I am beyond excited to this little pea join us but even with the excitement there’s still the worry, stress and “what if’s.”
-
But I’ve decided to choose hope over fear and leaving this all in God’s hands. I know he has a plan for me, my family and this precious new life.

Even though my tummy doesn’t handle raw veggies much anymore I still love creating colorful salads for my family.
-
Remember we eat with our eyes. The more colorful your plate is the more nutrients your dish has.
-
And for followers with tummy troubles as well peeled cucumbers and blueberries normally digest pretty easily for me.

It’s time to silence them!!!
-
How many times have you kept yourself from trying something or doing something you really wanted only because that inner voice deep inside your head kept filling your mind with fear???
-
Fear is just a negative feeling about an action you have not yet taken.
-
Can you guess what happens as soon as you take action? The fear subsides!
-
The truth is we build things up so much in our mind and 98% of the time all the “what if’s” and worst case scenarios don’t even happen.
-
What’s one thing this week that you are going to do that you’ve been putting off because you’ve been listening to that inner voice saying you can’t?

I love this style for soooo many reasons:
It’s super quick (less than 4 minutes)
You can do it with wet or dry hair.
It’s slightly fancier than a regular pony but anyone can achieve this look.

If you try it let me know! Don’t forget sharing is caring!

Let that sh*t go... now let me say it a little louder so the people in the back can hear me.
-
LET THAT SH*T GO!!!
-
I found myself at 6:20am shaking in aggravation over something I have no control over as I’m helping my son go potty and brush his teeth. Taking deep breathes to try to calm myself. He looked at me and asked me what was wrong and I just said “mommy needs to learn how to relax”.
-
Here’s that daily reminder that sooo many of us need including myself! It’s time to let it go: the big sh*t, the little sh*t, the sh*t you can control and the sh*t you can’t control. Don’t at any cost get stuck in the sh*t.

Bless and release. 👋🏻 👋🏻 👋🏻

It’s officially “D” day as in doo-doo 💩 💩💩 in my case.
-
I’ve been anxiously awaiting this prep since March. It’s been postponed several times due to hospitalizations and scheduling back ups due to COVID.
-
So as long as I survive this prep tonight, hopefully I’ll get some sort of official diagnosis tomorrow...
-
Crohn’s Disease is what my GI is expecting to find. My biggest fear though is that I’ll still have no answers. I’ve been doing tons of research the past couple of months. I know it’s a tricky disease and can be difficult to diagnose. I just really hope we get this figured out so we can figure out a treatment plan.
-
All good vibes and prayers appreciated.
-
If you need me later, you’ll know where to find me... 🚽 🚽 🚽

Let’s talk “safe foods”! When you have gut issues or live with an IBD food can easily lose its luster. There’s A LOT of trial and error that comes into play when trying to figure what foods are safe and what foods will leave you locked up in the bathroom for hours or in excruciating pain. But the real kicker in all of this nonsense is it’s ever evolving. What works for me today may not tomorrow.
-
But This right here is my morning go to. It’s quick, tasty and reminds of a regular meal I would have eaten (minus the hot sauce... *le sigh*) before all this tummy trouble started.
-
What are some of your go to foods that your stomach can handle even when it’s not at its best???
