Remember those health and fitness goals you wanted to achieve back in January? 💁♀️
Have you: (you don’t have to answer publicly)
A: Hit them but hungry for more - (Heck ya🤜🤛)
B: Actively working on them(but may need help 🙋♀️)
C: Haven’t started? (Whoops! 😬)
Well...if you need any help with A, B, or C AND getting a jumpstart into 2019 I am here to help. I used to be a total 🎢roller coaster🎡 when it came to my heath and fitness about 5 years ago. I still for sure struggle with my nutrition but not nearly as much as I used to. .
If you are at all interested, I’m going to share some ideas 💡 based on what works for me in a small group. You can try the workouts and if you happen to like them, there is also an awesome ⚡️FLASH sale ⚡️going on too until 10/20 which does not happen very often!
Hit me up with your fave emoji or question and happy to help! 🤸🏼♀️💕👊🦄
After my car accident, I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life - all I knew is that I wanted something more. I wanted to pursue the dream of living an adventure-inspired life. One night while lying in bed at 2am after working a night shift as a police officer, I had a vision that simply said, “Go play your violin on the summit of a mountain.” I immediately logged into Craig’s List and I posted an ad for myself as an ‘adventure elopement violinist’ ... which technically wasn’t even a real thing. I thought that surely the next day I would wake up and have hundreds of requests. The next morning? Crickets. No response. But I didn’t give up... I just kept following the little flashes of inspiration that I had, while holding my vision for this new life close to my heart.
A few months ago, I was asked to be in a photo shoot for @wedventuremag. I don’t consider myself a ‘wedding violinist’ - but rather, a violinist who loves doing really adventurous things with amazing people and bringing more light into the world in the process. Performing my violin at an abandoned mill for the sweetest couple ever fell into that category - and watching this video brings me back to that special day when a bunch of incredible people were brought together to share a genuine moment of love. ❤️🎻 Best Vendor Squad ever:

Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.

I just turned an age where I’m old enough to know better, young enough not to care. Experienced enough to do it right.
Thanks for traveling next to me to all those trips I planned without having a second thought! 🤪🤹🏻♀️⛺️ @hikeaholicman @janetteh20
Still reeling from another amazing #womensclimbingfestival . One of my favorite moments was our stewardship day at the Old Wauhatchie Boulders with @seclimbers and the @lookoutmountainconservancy interns. After our stewardship day, a handful of us took these interns out to climb for their first time and it was awesome since these high school interns have been working on uncovering boulders and building landings but had never climbed before! Thank you to all the ladies who came out to our projects in Denny Cove and the Old Wauhatchie Boulders and also to @lookoutmountainconservancy, @accessfund and @seclimbers for leading these projects! More photos and stories from the fest coming soon! #flashfoxy#bouldering#outdoorwomen

“If we lose wilderness, we lose forever the knowledge of what the world was and what it might, with understanding and loving husbandry, yet become. These are islands in time — with nothing to date them on the calendar of mankind. In these areas it is as though a person were looking backward into the ages and forward untold years. Here are bits of eternity, which have a preciousness beyond all accounting."
-Harvey Brooke, co-founder of The Wilderness Society
Maybe it’s just because it’s close to Halloween, but I’ve decided to call these three gnarled trees the three witches. Came up with the start of a story as I was hiking: three evil witches were performing black magic on the city of Santa Fe below, visible from the meadow. As they danced around a bonfire a good witch came to stop them. She turned the three witches into the three gnarled aspen trees we see today, doomed forever to look upon the city below, unable to do it harm, instead providing oxygen, shelter, and beauty for all those who pass by.
Have I mentioned I have a very overactive imagination? 😉🔥👻🎃💀🧙♀️🦉✨
Hihihi, awkwardly playing with my hair is the only strategy available to me currently in dealing with the continual “what should my arms do in photos” dilemma. Does someone want to hang out and teach me how to be photogenic? 😬
I don’t post pictures of myself too often but I couldn’t resist this one - I ran into an amazing dog owner today who insisted my friend and I take turns wearing her dog carrier - such a cute puppy! I love running into amazingly positive people, it really makes the day so much brighter when people are nice to each other :)
Colorado Part V:
Waking up the next morning underneath Humboldt Peak and the clouds that covered the summit. With winds whipping all night and into the morning, we all questioned the possibility of bagging a 14er.
Temperatures had dropped down below freezing over night, having to sleep in every layer I had to keep nice an toasty through out the night.
Puma quickly checked the weather and reports read that the weather was going to be decent with cold temps and gusty winds.
Scooter, Puma and I tore down camp, brewed some instant coffee and watched the clouds hover around us. Patiently keeping our fingers crossed hoping the sun would come out and burn the clouds off.

New favorite perch! Sometimes people find it hard to believe that I’m afraid of heights, but honestly I’m afraid of almost everything and I just do stuff anyways. Life is short (maybe shorter, if you were to sit here for too long). 😜🤷🏻♀️ 📸: @t_rumph

Now bring on winter. ❄️
“If you have taken this rubble for my past
raking through it for fragments you could sell
know that I long ago moved on
deeper into the heart of the matter
If you think you can grasp me, think again:
my story flows in more than one direction
a delta springing from the riverbed
with its five fingers spread.”
