Back and biceps are toast. I upped my weights this week and it will be worth it once I can lift my arms 😂
The motivation I can get to keep going through a home workout is remarkable. This week is a little different and I’ll be doing all 4 days in a row, but that’s the beauty in the design ⭐️ I still get rest days and I don’t have to worry about missing a day and getting off track. Stay tuned to see the adventures this week 😁

16 years separates these pictures. I wish I could go back and tell that girl everything I’ve learned. The frozen yogurt in the dining hall is a trap. Walking on a treadmill while reading a magazine, isn’t the most efficient way to spend an hour at the gym. Lean cuisines and Diet Coke might sound healthy and be cheap but you’ll pay for them later.
I’d also tell her that her passion for health and fitness will turn into a launching pad for her future and thank you for being so driven.
I can’t go back but what I can do is make the most of right now. Age is just a number and I’m so proud of the person I am and the past that taught me so much. Now I spend my life paying forward everything I’ve learned.
My next group is forming soon.
The possibilities are Limitless on what this small box has to offer. My husband and I can honestly say it was the best $160 we have spent in 29 years of marriage! So much so, that we both decided I would share the joys as my full time job. To be honest, I do not consider this a job. I do not consider myself a salesperson. I offer a better way! And as you can tell I am loving life😀love what you do, do what you love👍
There are soooo many reasons not to pursue your dream. What will people think? What if you fail? How will you find the time? The money? What if you can’t figure out how to do _____?
Going after your dream is hard! It’s why not everyone does it.
But... and this is what drives me when I have challenging days (and I have LOTS of them)... NOT going after your dream is also hard.
It might even be harder.
It can be hard not doing what you were flippin wired to do. It can be hard doing something that isn’t really YOU, but you’re just doing it because it pays the bills. It can be hard knowing deep in your heart there is MORE.
It can also be hard when you’re 90 knowing you didn’t do it. Knowing you didn’t try. Knowing you could have done more and didn’t.
It’s hard to go after your dream. It’s also hard not to.
Which one will you choose?
PS. Thanks @syattfitness for the inspiration for this post. You were right about this in fitness. (It’s hard not to work out. It’s also hard not to.) And per usual, it’s also a great application to life! 💯
I’m Finally being able to catch my breath a little here.
Busy weeks we had, also dealing with some health issues I hadn’t really been able to engage on social media/paint. Things are calming down a bit and I’m feeling a lot better! Tomorrow is first day of 1st grade for my big girl. I was stressing and so nervous about this year. How was she going to handle a new class, new teacher, new friends?! Well we were surprised to find out her kinder teacher will be her 1st grade teacher! I have to say it was a good load off me. I grew a great relationship with her teacher last year knowing that she is who we will be partnering with to have my kiddo succeed once again is awesome! Not too mention my girl is looking forward to it knowing she will have that familiar face around! ☺️ I’m catching up on some paintings, now that summer vacation is over- we can get back to a schedule and get things done!!! 🤙🏽
Have a great week!! .

This past weekend was difficult for me on many levels. On the surface, I was picking fights, letting insecurity and frustration get the best of me. I was starting my moon cycle, and had recently become aware, and even more so this weekend, that the reach for perfection has unconsciously consumed my life for the past 4.5 years. I didn’t realize how affected I had become by my fear of falling back into depression and other dangerous realm of being I had previously known, like self-harm or daydreaming of ending my life. That’s life though, constantly growing more aware and compassionate towards the pieces of us that bury (whether it be consciously or not), and sending love to the past version of us that is still so afraid. To recognize that yes, we may have gone away or sabotaged our happiness in horrifying ways, but to also recognize that, despite everything, we are still here, growing, evolving, learning. The amount of growth and healing I’ve been blessed with and committed myself to is too great to condense into words, but I remember it in my bones, and it keeps me looking ahead, knowing that I do, indeed, house great strength within. We all do. Your story may not be the exact same or at all similar to mine, but we all share that same desire, to love and be loved, just as we are. And if you haven’t been told today, you are enough, exactly the way you are. You have everything you need, even if you forget or deny it. #beyourownhealer#recoveryispossible#taketheleap#thenetwillappear#liveyourpassion#walkforward#rememberyourroots#rememberyourworth#loveyourstory#youareenough#innerstrength#stokeyourfire 📸 @benjamin_emmanuel27

Raise your head and focus your eyes on the beauty for this world...
Hiking through the Rocky Mountain amazed me every day. I felt so small, so unimportant but grateful to be here in this moment and experience what life has to offer.
Remember to celebrate
your small victories;
For one day you will look back
and realize that those
little moments are what fueled
your biggest successes.
