this weekend we hit the streets of small town Louisiana 👉🏼 now I’m touching down in Los Angeles and my heart is so full from these past few days. God uses people to encourage and build one another up. I feel that so strongly as I come home. ♥️ how was your weekend?
I think the bull spotted me 👀 Despite the popular opinion that bulls are super aggressive and will chase you down, these bulls were super sweet, calm and unbothered by our presence. 🐂 How cute is that little tongue though?!? 🤪
On my story this morning, I asked to hear about one of the biggest lessons you've learned this year. The responses are amazing so far. So here's mine, a little gamechanger I picked up along the way:
If you want more and better and bigger and richer, examine what you repeatedly say yes to and level up your tolerance threshold. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Notice what you put up with, what boundaries you don't enforce, what you repeatedly put on your own plate even when you're tired of it.
Because when all is said and done, you'll only ever get in life what you continue to tolerate. x
Instagram vs. reality. Doesn’t she look like a fat seal in that second picture?
I wanted to take a minute to turn your attention to @briannamadia ‘s Instagram page. I know a lot of you probably follow her and know what’s going on. Her beloved dog Dagwood was hit by a car a few days ago and is in extremely critical condition. I’ve followed her for as long as I can remember and her dogs always brighten my day. I feel as though my dog is my child and I know she feels the same. It’s breaking my heart to see this happen and I just wanted to tell everyone to go give them some love, money (if you can), and good thoughts.
You could not pay me to be 21 again. I'm older (nearly twice that). I'm wrinklier. I understand eyebrows require grooming. I weigh more. I eat vegetables. I know my shit and have the experience and education to back it up. I can lift heavy things. I start conversations with strangers. I've forgiven those who broke my heart. I've learned you can become friends with former enemies, when you actually learn to see people for who they are and not what someone told you they were. I have a tribe and I know they have my back. I hike alone and I don't worry what people think. I am comfortable in my skin. This is 41 and I own every bit of it.
This past weekend we drove out to Mount Hood to do some hiking and enjoy the amazing weather. ☀️🍂(Which btw, is still amazing!) Im starting to wonder if everyone was lying about how much it rains here 😂)
On our way up to the summit, we hiked by Mirror Lake which on a calm day provides a perfect reflection of Mount Hood. The fall colors were peaking and pops of red, orange and yellow were brightening the landscape. 🍁
What are the fall colors like where you’re living?
Take my heart and put it in your pocket 😋
Made it to Vermont and checked into this adorable cabin in the middle of the woods with @glampinghub! Views include but are not limited to: the mountains, sunny skies, and every color leaf you can imagine 😍
walks during the fall is one of my absolute favorite things. & flannel is for sure one of my fall staples and thankfully @EddieBauer has me covered! be sure to check them out for all your fall needs and essentials!
Don't you dare underestimate yourself.
I remember thinking I was "good enough" in the photo on the left. I didn't even try to imagine WHO I could be if I really tried. Because if you try, you might fail. And if you fail, people will know, and they might laugh. I'm done worrying about what others think. Are you?
There are 76 days left in the year, who will you be when you wake up in 2019? I have an ONCE IN A LIFETIME opportunity to not only change your body, but change your mindset right along with it✨💪. I have 3 spots left in a VIP Test Group and 5 spots for my virtual Bootcamp (we will follow the SAME program, but not live with the trainer🎥💪) .
Drop your favorite emoji🦄⬇️ below to be added to an Info Group about what to expect, and if this virtual Bootcamp is a good fit for YOU (all you need is WiFi💻, US/UK/Canada only).
Make this next the Monday YOU finally started believing in yourself.
In a quiet forest, a swirling mist blankets the air, as it drifts from the river nearby. Lush greenery, glittered with dew, sparkles as a breeze sweeps through the valley. A songbird perched on a branch up above, sings a familiar tune as I wander the trail. How I have missed Tennessee...
I was so tempted to sleep in today & skip my workout. Lately I’ve been so tired and unmotivated, but I decided to show up for me today. I knew extra sleep wouldn’t get me closer to my goals.
Going into the winter season when it’s getting colder outside & the holidays are quickly approaching, it’s easy to fall off track. To push goals back until the new year. But you deserve better! Healthy habits is exactly what you need to keep you going in the stress & chaos of this season.
If you’re someone like me & start to lose motivation, I’m putting together a holiday support group so we can all encourage each other to stick to our goals, finish the year strong & not have to start over at the new year. Do you want in??
This was an amazing day full of fun & discovery... climbing with random ropes to finding the perfect rock chair to reaches with no fish to pools chocka- full. Living life, taking it on through 17km of this creek 😊 #5050onthewater#playground
