I haven’t posted in a couple of days because our family have been in crisis and I have had no idea what to say or how to function.
Sharing your life in the hope that it inspires, motivates and encourages others isn’t always easy when you just want to retreat but I know it’s part of my purpose and mission.
So I will say this:
My pup, Clover has been in emergency and critical care for the past 48 hours. It is totally separate and unrelated to his previous issue but incredibly serious. He is in the best possible care.
If you pray, please pray. If you think positive thoughts/vibrations, do that.
I just ask from my social media family that you keep him (and us in your thoughts) as he gets the care he needs and we navigate the coming days and weeks which totally caught us off guard.
Often people tell me that their health and fitness is a luxury. I have found the opposite to be the case. It times like this it is my go to, my necessity.
These hard times have become my REASON to take care of me, not my excuse.
I am so grateful I chose this path 5 years ago because without it, right now I just don’t know where I would be.

Blessing words from ps @radityaoloan
Gak ada yang lebih melelahkan dari sebuah kehidupan yang penuh kepalsuan dan kebohongan. Kenapa? Karena aktivitas selelah apapun, akan lebih banyak menguras fisik kita. Sedangkan kepalsuan dan kebohongan akan berdampak sangat besar kepada jiwa. Jadi bukan aktivitas yang paling membuat kita cape melainkan ketidakjujuran dan kepalsuan yang sudah terlalu banyak kita tutupin.
Dan ketika kita menutupinya dengan pelayanan, pekerjaan, obsesi, hubungan dan sebagainya, itu hanya membuat kita semakin menderita, bahkan akan berakhir menyalahkan aktivitas tersebut dan orang-orang di dalamnya. SO STOP BEING FAKE, BECAUSE IT’S SO EXHAUSTING!
It’s #TransformationTuesday !
This is Sarah who lost 26 inches doing the program our tribe is about to start on Monday! I can’t wait!
Here are her own words...“I wanted to see if the Beachbody program mix of fitness, supplements, and nutrition would get me the results I was looking for.
My arms are chiseled and firm — great muscle mass has developed here. My hips and legs feel smaller in size. My abs are leaner-looking and a two- to four-pack is appearing now.
Workouts with Joel are great. He makes it easy to show up and do the work for best results! I also enjoyed the constant reminders of proper form so you could evaluate yourself and make adjustments as needed.
I feel great, figure-wise. LIIFT4 has created a new inner strength and fierce determination to accomplish goals despite happenings in other parts of life.”
Woo hoo! So excited for the next 8 weeks! There’s still room if you wanna jump in with us! Just shoot me a message! ✌🏻
Vulnerable post alert!! This is something I've never really being comfortable talking about - because I always felt 'judged'. But it's time to 'be me' and share a little more of me... I consider myself to be a patient person with a relatively stress-free life. I love my life and wouldn't want it any other way.
So when I get asked "do you have kids?" or "are you planning on having kids?" - the answer is no!
Some people think it's strange that I feel this way - and I get it - because as a kid I would think it was a little weird myself - when a couple was childless.
Once upon a time - I thought I would be a mom but as it got nearer to 'the time' - I asked myself why?! And all I could think of was because I was expected to. And I realised that wasn't a good enough answer.
To be honest - I think I am a little influenced by my hubby - but my friends too. Especially those who have experienced loss and/or unhealthy babies. It was heart wrenching to see their pain and I didn't want myself to go through that.
I'm a mommy to a rabbit - and would have a million rabbits or other animals - but having a little human just isn't for me. My life is whole just the way it is!

I was dependant AF on dieting. 🥗🥦🥗
Let's face it. *
I'd been on a diet since I was in High School and I'd base how I felt about myself on what the scale said. And I'd spend hundreds of dollars on "losing weight quick" plans that would guarantee quick results, being hungry and working out like crazy. 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️
Because I was ALWAYS in FULL CONTROL or NO CONTROL and I'd invested hundreds into learning ways to trick my body into "get thin quick" schemes.✨ I realized this formula wasn't working and I was actually spending a TON OF MONEY on things that WEREN'T helping me in the long run.
I needed to find something that... 🔥 Didn't have me counting calories or making me feel deprived. I needed a plan that was fit for a foodie. 🔥Was worth the investment and would include more than just a low calorie "magical" diet. I needed accountability, support and more to look forward to than just weighing myself every day. 🔥 A plan that was a LIFESTYLE and not a DIET. What I'd been doing wasn't working. I needed a fresh approach and to learn from someone who'd ACTUALLY made a transformation themselves.
And it's been a 180 learning how to NOURISH my body, INVEST in something that taught me LIFE SKILLS, and helped me TRANSITION my entire LIFE.♥️ I'm excited to share my journey and if your radar is going OFF because you've been WAITING for something EXACTLY like this, "LIKE" this post and let's TALK.
Yes I am - and proud of it. After spending more than half my adult life working for others and doin what they wanted and needed (which wasn’t a bad thing - FYI). I decided this year I’m going to be #theboss . My boys think I’m a bit crazy (since my car has a window sticker with my name on it)... but I keep telling them (mostly my 15 year old) - you just wait. I want this success as much as I wanted to marry your dad... as much as I wanted each of you 3 boys... as much as I want success for you in your life!
So go ahead and tell me I’m silly, I’m crazy, Nobody will listen and that you refuse to drive my car because of the sign 🤣. It only drives me to want this success even more. If your dad can be a #BoyBoss then I can most certainly be a #GirlBoss
It’s been a while.
I’ve missed you but I have to confess my time alone has been a gift.
It’s been difficult to face my real thoughts instead of creating images to live in Instagram moments... when lately real life has failed to be “pretty”. But that’s okay. Great things can happen amidst all the ugly. Progress can be born amidst tremendous obstacles. New ideas can be birthed among the decay and rot of broken dreams. As I continued to declutter items I was faced with having to deal with the past ideas, habits and pain and had to makes choices to let that all go as well all the anger and disappointment in myself.
Amazingly during this process of letting go I have lost 12 pounds..... was this extra weight attached to all the garbage and clutter I’ve been toting around in my mind?? Anyway..... hello. It’s nice to see you again. I hope you like this new me. I honestly am just getting to know her. So far I am smiling as I look in the mirror. She is a brave warrior. 🔥❤️💪🏼
Repost I know some people like that so fake trying to maintain some image not being true to who they are it’s so sad to see! People just be true to you don’t be so concerned about what others think do what makes you happy be real #beingreal#beyou#betruetoyourself
How I am doing?
Some days are good days. Some days are ok days. Some days we laugh. Some days we cry. .
Today...Abi made this camping picture. Papa is busy roasting marshmallows. Abi and her sisters are playing. Uncle Dan and daddy are busy playing crib. Auntie Sandi and mommy are washing and drying dishes. Than there is grandma right by the fire...stitching with no smoke in her eyes.
Abi you did a great job drawing this picture with tears in my eyes. 😭
We are headed out camping this weekend as a family. I am excited...yes to have some family time and making memories. But I am also not excited about it...cause it isn't going to be the same.
Today is an ok day! .
Breakthrough on the “Time” Myth
Oh, you have to see what I’m wearing!!
So, tell me...Are You Laughing “WITH ME” or “AT Me??”
Give me a 😂 if you are smiling right now!
Check out my IGTV to finish this Fun warm up with me!
Let’s Laugh Together!
Things have kinda slowed down a bit here due to the school hols but i got a couple of making days coming up and at least some these bits and pieces will be getting a lot of attention.
I guess antler Sun Wheels are one of the main things i've been working with for the past couple of years. They were among my first posts here at instagram.
As an animist, it is something that is full of everything - a universal symbol, all life giving and sustaining energies, the pattern of the year and within that the pattern of lives, the cardinal points that encompass all that spreads around us, regeneration, eternal return.
It's no simple accident or act of imitation that leads me to make these in antler.
It is deliberate and intentional as is all my work, which underpins why i only make certain items and only use certain materials.
It is vital to me that my work has a soul of it's own, and as i break material to make something new, i'm not just carving or burning a blank - i'm trying to bring something in to the world that is somehow new and true to itself. New spirit.
And antlers lend the Sun Wheel power to help birth this spirit. Their very nature is to spring from the skull and reach to the Sun, growing at remarkable speeds, full of life energy and destined for regeneration. I am creating a talisman and it needs to bloody be one.
I dont talk about this much as i would rather that it was something felt and not heard.... But the why of why we do things is a big deal.
So I completely went out of my comfort zone and tried something new. I normally stick to warm tones and never really do colours. I have realized that in order to grow and learn more, I need to be more daring and push myself. After all that's the only way you will ever reach your goals. So I know this isn't perfect but it's a start and I'm happy with that. 😁💜😁 I am worthy xx

Hate it or love it I’ll still do me and keep it 💯, why bullshit? The front is real these days, BUT I’ll say, it lifts allot of people spirits. Just don’t read into someone else’s life to much. Collect the knowledge then use what you’ve observed to build your own way of life...
