“There is nothing as powerful as a made up mind.” That is 100% true! Last September when I got Med dropped from my Heavy for torn ligaments in my foot, I made my mind up that I would earn my heavy patch this year. There have been a lot of obstacles that derailed me, but this made up mind won’t let me stop until I “win”. #31daystotrain #goruckheavy #setupforacomeback #comebackkid #fighter #grt #grtaf #comeback #neversurrender #neverdefeated #keepgoing #mindset #MindOverMatter #mentalstrength #gritandgrace

Today’s workout is dedicated to the dragons, yep my dragons! That has been their attitude the last few days! They think they can fly where they want, breath fire and not have consequences, food is free game! Yep give me all the heavy weights because it was taken out on those bad boys! 
Better myself so I can gracefully discipline my children. Not let my anxiety build up and yell at them!

#TuesdayTune - My desire is to become more and more in tune with God, day by day so my life can represent [not perfect] but a graceful melody. Each new week I discourage myself from following my "own song" because the truth is whenever I do, my life becomes out of tune.

We feel off when we are out of tune at work, in business and in our lives period.

As we seek God each day, let's tune in to His leading and what He has to say.

His notes are graceful and more beautiful than ours.

P.S. I said [not perfect] earlier because there's no perfect person. We all need grace to make it each and every day.

Absorbing some vitamin D and preparing for that #AzSummer  🌞 ✌️❤️👩🏻‍💻
Two big things happened yesterday:
💠  for the first time in MONTHS, I had a truly good day at work!! 👍🏻👍🏻
💠  I felt every last extra pound that I’ve added over that last year - and the net gain in the last year has been almost 20 pounds with some fluctuations. 👎🏻👎🏻
...
Despite my best attempts, I was unable to lower my mountains - and in fact, I managed to make them grow. ...
It took entirely too long, but I eventually learned that I had to elevate myself out of my situation.  So that’s what I’m attempting to do now.
... Is there something in your life that is looming over you?  What can you do TODAY to elevate yourself to either conquer your mountain or go around it? ⛰⛰⛰⛰

Just a reminder that God loves all of you. You don't have to be perfect, you don't have to earn His love. You are His sweet daughter or son and He loves every piece of you.

How much are you stacking on your shelf [your to-do list] each day? A couple months ago, I decided to decrease my to-do list to 5 or less items a day.

Not only was I working too much. My mind never turned off and I wasn't taking as much time for myself to rest and relax.

As women entrepreneurs many of us speak the same language; we tend to do more and more hoping that it will translate into more success when in actuality it pushes us straight to being burnt out.

It is imperative that we find a balance. Take a look at the shelf from @luvnailshop

Your daily to-do list should look similar with 5 items or less on your list each day. And please don't feel bad about making this change and not accomplishing enough. We are entrepreneurs, there's always work to be done. What we need is the right balance so we can be on the to-do list too.

What's on your to-do list? What can you do to make sure you get on the list too?

Dear Quietly Progressing Soul,
.
Being a human is tough work. .
While sometimes it appears that we're not getting anything done at all, really we are making so many small and large strides towards everything that is good.
.
Think of plants and bulbs and seeds that seem like they are stagnant over the winter, when really they are doing the important work of readying themselves for the oncoming Spring...and while it LOOKS like they just suddenly sprout from nothing...they are just suddenly SHOWING all of the work that has been going on for months and months.
.
Let's redefine what it means to be productive, and what is a meaningful accomplishment in your life.
.
Give yourself a break and celebrate the silent, often unseen steps you are taking every day of your life. You are getting there.
.
You are so very very loved.
.
xoxo
LA

This promise. 
Mark and I have been “walking” this one out for awhile. In praying for Mark one morning the Lord brought this scripture to my remembrance. I began and we began to pray this daily. God had given us a few words for 2018 and RENEW was one of those words. 
And watching your husband of strength and power, stripped down to a man in severe pain, barely walking and work was a major challenge, is hard to see. 
But God. 
But we faithfully stood knowing that God had spoken to us that healing was coming soon on Mark’s timeline. 
So 2 months after hip replacement I am seeing glimpses of my man of strength and power returning. Soaring. Running. Walking. 
But God. 
And the beautiful thing about God is when you go through a season walking toward a promise, there is an opportunity for growth and true renewing. We can view it as painful and trials and too much. We can view it as preparation. We chose the latter. And I know that God has done a spiritual work in my man and I am watching him soar. It’s most beautiful. His running and walking towards God for years and not growing weary or fainting has brought him to a place of soaring strength today. And watching God intentionally place men around Mark that need a mentor or a father, has been a true renewing. 
Those that hope, trust and wait upon the Lord. Shall. 
Keep it up, friends. The season is a preparing. Embrace the preparation and waiting and know that soaring is on the other side.

There has been so much sadness and negativity in the news recently. I always hope that there is education as well about the effects of depression and anxiety when we talk about that sadness and those dark places some people go to. 
Through all the darkness and sadness that surrounds our society on a daily basis, there are people that bring sunshine to everyone they encounter. Those people are probably dealing with their own struggles and they go to their own dark places, and yet they know that this world needs smiles and love. They selflessly push past their struggles to bring that joy and compassion to others. 
I bring this up because Kristin LaPlante is exactly that person. Not only in my life but with everyone she encounters. She loves with her whole heart and she makes sure that you feel loved through her hugs, her songs (she is one of the best singers I have ever heard btw), quoting Disney movies, or just sitting and talking over a cup of coffee. I have been blessed to have her in my life for around 3 years now, and my life is better because of it and I can guarantee that I am one of many that have felt Kristin's love and joy! 
There was no doubt in my mind that she had to be part of this project because she truly fulfills all the "qualifications." If you are in her circle, you are one lucky person! Thank you @cupcakes_and_jesus !

It’s been awhile since I’ve said hello. There are several new here, so I wanted to share a little about myself.
.
I am a child of God, a wife, and a mom to four girls. I am a Kansan through and through, but I love to travel and see new places. I have a passion for writing and am currently a contributor for @thegritandgraceproject. I love to inspire and encourage people through my writing and my faith, especially those on a grief journey.
.
I am addicted to coffee and pie. I love humor, sarcasm, and all things lip gloss. I’m a wannabe health nut, but am far from a model of fitness. Music feeds my soul. Take me to the beach and I’ll love you forever.
.
I’m a gymnastics mom, soccer mom, and softball mom. Sports = happiness. My husband says I live for chaos, and our two dogs, two cats, and three guinea pigs are proof of that.
.
Joy. Positivity. Laughs. Thank you for joining me here... 💜💜💜

I love a sneaky glass of red but that’s not the kind of wine I’m talking about here... We’ve all been created with a deep thirst that we’re running around trying to quench.  So often we look for a decent drop in all the wrong places. We try and get that thirst met through diving into Facebook or Instagram or we look for fulfillment in our work or marriage. None of that will quench our thirst. Not completely.....it might satisfy us temporarily but it’s not the ultimate satisfaction we are really searching for. 
We were created to crave Jesus’ presence. His approval, his love, his everything. Nothing else can satisfy us like he can. 
When we try to fill the void in other ways, it’s like chasing after cheap wine.... Go straight for the good stuff! Unplug from the world and all it’s distractions and get what your heart needs from him. When we do that he promises we will never thirst again....sounds good to me.....sound good to you too? Xx

Life is about all those ridiculously fun moments. The ones we create ourselves. So stop living someone else’s dreams and start living out your own 🌈 .

Being a 90s kid we were told 2 things all our lives, “go to college bc the baby boomers are going to retire”.
Spoiler alert, 2007 and 2008 did not go as planned. Us 90s kids, did in fact NOT get jobs, those baby boomers, did not retire (hell, they’re still working their asses off)
.
.
Truth, I know that the career path I have taken, isn’t the path I expected to be on, and I know, society doesn’t socially accept it yet. 
But honestly, I’m fine with that. 
You see as everyone is whispering and watching, my babes and I are over here changing lives and teaching our kids the grit we’re learning along the way.
Lets face it, we were also the generation that was told, “you can do anything you set your mind to”, so that’s what I’ve done. 
I’m on a mission to end obesity and help other moms along the way.
And you know what? I’ve set this goal and my team has legit crushed the shit out of it.
It’s amazing what you can achieve when you do what sets your soul on fire 🔥 .
.
.
This Thursday night I’ll be walking a stage in front of 20k people in honor of my team, TWICE. That’s right we are being recognized for 2 huge accomplishments.
.
.
.

I’m setting out to expand my team by 10 next week and spots in my next internship are filling fast, if you’re interested in seeing what this gig is all about, now is the time.
Find out how I’ve gone from nonbeliever to a “legend” in this business 😆😆
And remember, there is no “right way” to adulting, just do you, have FUN and chase your dreams✌🏻

Is it possible to create in chaos? Yes! The Creator set the world in order when it was without form and covered in darkness (chaos), but you can’t cosign the chaos and complain about it too. When you’re Pursuing Your Passion in a Godly Fashion you have to recognize your role in some things too. It’s not always the devil sometimes it’s just you, sis. Ready to deal with your role and #getyourinheritance DM me to set up a Passion and Purpose Elevation Conversation and make sure you attend the Create in Chaos Workshop.

I got heckled today by some teenagers walking in front of my car at the gas station. They were laughing about my use of plastic gloves while filling up my tank. 🙄 Yeah it’s kinda weird but having OCD and (not)knowing how many germs are on the pump or the credit card pad freaks me out so I use them. I even have to slop on some anti bacterial gel when I get back into the car. 💩This isn’t some amazing Instagram story TBH 😒 but I looked at them with a bit of grace. Remembering that I was a naive teenager once 👵🏼 and they have no idea the story behind the use of those gloves. So here’s a picture of what ELSE I visualized myself doing after they got their laughs out at me. Ha. How’s your day going? 😇 #throwback

Confession Time:  The entrepreneur life can feel like an emotional roller coaster ride. Being 100% responsible and accountable for your own business can be exhausting.  Y'all, it's not easy or glamorous pushing hard to reach goals. But the BEST thing about this business is that it's a choice. It's mine.  You have to want it. It doesn’t happen overnight. And it won't always be hustle season.  And it can be done from my couch, bed, backstage, vocal lessons or from a chair at my daughter’s softball game.  What a privilege. The sacrifices (big and small) will be so worth it in a very short period of time.  Hustle and heart will set you apart.

YEARS ago, I would secretly compare myself to women who looked as if they had it all together. Only if I knew what they were thinking or feeling? *
Don't get me wrong, I love nice things and I will never apologize for that. BUT comparison is the thief of joy and what I am after is so much bigger! *
Peace that surpasses understanding, self love, God confidence, solutions to empower others, and freedom are EVERYTHING to me. These are my drivers! No matter the circumstances...those are my intentions, and my inspiration.

Self awareness is the beginning of your transformation.

Doesn’t this just look like the epitome of a #sexysalad? ...
Oh, and the dressing on this amazing salad?  Light ranch - yes RANCH - mixed 1:1 with lemon juice to make it go twice as far!  And it’s soooooo good. ... I have to admit - I was so very skeptical of that 👆🏻👆🏻. So very happy to be wrong!

For everyone asking how the nursery is coming along... it’s not 😂🤷🏼‍♀️
___
BUT my mom came over today so that we could clean! Maybe later this week we will start putting it together 😬

I like to think of it as “not stressing” instead of “procrastinating” because that sounds a lot better 😃 #attitude

Mom STOP Helping!! .
Wearing shoes all by herself!! Swipe for video
.
Another milestone reached.. My 3 yr old is growing up and being all independent 😱
We have been working on this life skill for a while now and @ikikishoes seemed perfect since they open so wide. .
To wear left shoe she had to lean against the wall, sometimes she manages to do it without too. 
I had to fast forward the video, it took her 10 minutes to wear both shoes. Left took more time. .
It was so hard to not help! But whenever I tried to help she would always tell me to 🛑 STOP HELPING!! It was so hard, but I am so glad I let her do it by herself. .

Today’s mantra: find rest in everything. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because we are consumed with busyness.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We can’t always stop being busy, but we can find peace and rest in the busyness.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-Matthew 11:28-

Forgiveness can be a tricky thing. It’s something we deny others because we believe to forgive is letting them get away with something. On the flip side, we also believe that peace is the absence of chaos. So we forgive for the sake of “keeping the peace” without resolving anything only to have resentment hang in the air waiting to devour. 
Both are devastatingly untrue. 
Forgiveness is about your own heart. It’s your ability to see someone else as a human enough to make mistakes. We are not perfect and we all need forgiveness. 
This concept drives home peace. Peace is not the absence of chaos, it’s speaking truth in a way that brings the chaos back into order. 
So forgiving someone does not rob you of justice, speaking truth brings a peace that surpasses understanding.

Been a rough month between having a seizure = going back on epilepsy meds after 2 years off, a death in the family, and Cicero’s TPLO surgery. Sleeping about 4 hours every night due to the meds led to the past 10 days sans workouts other than a couple of runs. I realized my response turned in to a lot of self-shaming and disappointment in my “failure” and lack of drive. Oftentimes we have so much grace for others when they’re struggling, but not for ourselves. I don’t know how many times I’ve told clients that life is a marathon, not a sprint, and the important thing is consistency over a lifetime; quick fixes are bullshit. But then when it’s personal, it becomes a failure and the inability to give acceptance and love. I finally decided to take a day off to recommit to my meditation practice and healthier eating (that definitely went downhill the last couple of weeks!), and I was surprised that I started the morning shaming myself for laying in bed awhile and not having some amazing spiritual experience by journaling at Alki or walking Lincoln Park and contemplating life. It isn’t that serious, people! We only have a short time to enjoy this beautiful opportunity to experience love, life, and happiness. Create your magic, create your life...and a handful of #determination & #laughter goes a long way 😜❤️🦆. So here I am enjoying homemade #bulletproofcoffee and chilling with my furry soul mates! #deathbeforedecaf #epilepsyawareness #wellnesswarrior #bulimiarecovery #fitfam #chickswholift #gritandgrace #bodypositive #loveyourself #findyourhappy #meditation #dogsofinstagram #bemorehuman

You don’t have to have full attention and capacity for all things all the time.

It’s simply not sustainable.

hyper #empaths
#kind #nurturing #caregivers and #advocates 
#chronicallyill #spoonies ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know because I belong to each and every category named.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Compassion fatigue is a real thing.
It almost f*cking killed me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m not arguing for one to stick their head in the sand and ignore injustices, current events, or general f*ckery.
I am arguing for a firm commitment to self preservation along with complete and total permission to:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⭐️rest more
⭐️surround yourself with, and actively seek beauty
⭐️create wellness using resources available to you ( the 🌏, and body-based ones like your breath and ❤️...)
⭐️possess joy and pleasure every opportunity you get
⭐️respect the needs of your animal body
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In a world that demands more of you while giving little in return, its revolutionary to reject the status quo and choose yourself, imperfections and all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Jesus didn’t die to go on an ego trip. He didn’t die for his pride. He didn’t die because his Father made him do it. He didn’t die out of obligation. 
Jesus died because he wanted to glorify his father through the redemption of his people. Jesus died because he desired to literally save the world. He desired to create a way for the self-righteous, egotistical, created beings to have a relationship with their Creator, Father, and King. Through that relationship, we are changed. No more self-focused, ego-driven life... no, it’s “come and die, that you may live” “it’s death and resurrection over and over again”. Through the death of Jesus, if we believe, we get to take hold of new life. Newness of spirit, mind, desires. Everything changes. You are dead to sin, and alive to righteousness. But this righteousness is not your own! This is the pure, perfect, beautiful, eternal righteousness of Christ. He made a trade: our sin for his righteousness; there was no other way for us to be made righteous! His blood, his death, his sacrifice was the only way for us to be made clean, righteous, and safe from judgement before God. He counted our lives above his own. The Eternal, Holy Son of God, Jesus Christ, 1/3 of the Triune God needed to die in our place, and come back to life so that we could die to sin, death, and world, and have a resurrection of a right relationship to God with a new heart, renewed mind, and justified spirit. Doesn’t that get you excited?

“Consider the fact that in God’s eyes, through Jesus, you are holy, chosen, dearly loved—wow. That quiets my fears—the ones that whisper I am alone, unlovable, unworthy—and makes me feel brave.” - @anniefdowns, 100 Days to Brave
▫️
It is so hard to unlearn the fears that I’ve allowed myself to believe as the truth for 30+ years. But, to continue to live in fear of these lies is to drain the Resurrection of its power!

What fears are feeding you lies that you need to surrender for the truth of God? ▫️

Join me next week for the 3 Steps to Creating in Chaos Series we’re going to cover some tools that need to both understand what’s going around you, how to be responsive and still creative, and how to turn that experience into one that you and your audience can benefit from.

One of those tools includes setting your intentions and backing them with actions, so the question is: what do you intend to do today, sis and what actions are you taking to bring it to pass? #getyourinheritance
Join me next week for the 3 Steps to Creating in Chaos Series we’re going to cover some tools that need to both understand what’s going around you, how to be responsive and still creative, and how to turn that experience into one that you and your audience can benefit from. • One of those tools includes setting your intentions and backing them with actions, so the question is: what do you intend to do today, sis and what actions are you taking to bring it to pass? #getyourinheritance 
Are you following your true path?  Or are you afraid of being judged? #findyourpath #giveupfear #gritandgrace #beabadass
Each time you’re honest with yourself and God about how you are feeling, you are reviving your soul so that you get the strength you need to keep going… P.S. God won’t tell a soul about your true feelings.

“I picked this for you, Mom,” my 11-year-old said and I stared at her with a look of both confusion over and gratitude for this sweet act of love.
.
“Thank you! Where did you find such a beautiful flower?” I asked her.
.
“In our yard!” she replied. “There’s a bunch of them growing by the tree in the backyard.” I looked, and sure enough she was right. A handful of irises growing right by the big tree.
.
And I’ve been thinking about that ever since, because whenever I’ve thought about our yard, all I’ve seen is the weeds, the patchy grass, the bumpy ground... and all the work that still needs to be done.
.
But right there, in the middle of all the weeds and mess, were beautiful, breathtaking flowers. And I’d never even SEEN them.
.
And isn’t that just the truth? That in the midst of the broken mess, when all we can see is weeds, and how much further we have left to go, God can grow flowers where we weren’t even looking? That there’s always something beautiful to be thankful for, if we just look close enough?
.
I know from experience that isn’t always easy to do, and when you’re IN IT, it’s the last thing you want to hear. What is there to be thankful for when I’m in this excruciating pain?
.
So I leave you with this, hold on, with whatever shred of faith you have left, that God is growing something beautiful in the middle of your weedy yard. You might not see it yet, but someday, you will.

If there’s one thing I take from my dance life, it’s a mean shimmy. And a certain amount of grit and grace. Did you know that I danced from age 3 through college and then taught high school dance for 8 years? I always say I was half-dance teacher, half-counselor. I left teaching 5 years ago. And if I’m being 100% honest, I do miss it. Not all of it. But the good stuff. And the kids. Definitely a chapter I look back on fondly. Without a doubt. #dancelife #danceteacher #danceteacherlife #teacherlife #chapterclosed #fondmemories #shimmy #shimmyandshake #grit #gritandgrace #aanddessentialtank #aanddliveinskirt #aanddauthenticity2018 @agnesanddora

Day 15 🙌. Our weekend away was fantastic, but not easy to stick 💯% to my #30daychallenge My confession is that I did have two cheats 🤦🏻‍♀️, but I’m okay with that.  I’m 💯% back on track this week & started #intermittentfasting today. I’m at the #halfway mark for my #arbonne30 and my body is starting to become more #alkaline instead of #acidic This is the perfect time to start Arbonne’s Lemon 🍋Ginger Body Cleanse. It’s incredibly delicious. 😋
This body cleanse is gentle🌺 enough for everyday use & cleanses the #toxicbuildup It’s important to maintain good #guthealth 💩 The aloe soothes the GI, the ginger supports healthy digestion & choline supports liver function. ✔️tips- add to warm water & shake vigorously👋🏻
