🎾🎾🎾 I played tennis today with a couple of ladies for the first time in over a year. I played really competitively in high school but once I had kids I picked up the racquet less and less. It was so fun to get out and play today but man I know I’m going to be sore! My elbow was aching after a few games!! Deep Blue Rub has saved me today (and probably tomorrow too!). It’s so good for muscle and joint support and I love that it’s an all natural cream too! Tag someone you think you could some!! 💙💙💙

Everyday used to be one big blur to me. Rushing out the door. Zoned out driving. Chaos at work. Come home. Sit on the couch. Eat shit food. Watch tv. Play on my phone. Stay up too late. Sleep like shit. Repeat. .
Now my days are filled with growth and opportunities! This morning was full of personal development in my parenting. Released a new BADASS podcast episode with @fitnesswithtris. Attended a Parelli Clinic to improve my horsemanship skills and the confidence in my horse. Listened to an audio book on the way home to heal my money story. Then I played outside with my family, horses and puppies. .
Life is sure different these days but I wouldn’t trade it for anything! I learn something new everyday. I am helping others everyday. I am present in my life everyday. I am bettering myself everyday. For myself, for my family and for the women out there wanting change. .
What did you learn today? .
Headed to this spot for the weekend. 🌲🌊I can’t believe this summer is coming close to an end- the State Fair starts in 5 days?! So I see lots of swimming, fishing and boating in our forecast🤗 just as long as the actual forecast cooperates ☀️! I hope your weekend is beautiful! 🌸🌿🌻

How about that gut check?
According to the social security administration, if you take any 100 people at the start of their working careers and follow them for the next 40 years until they reach retirement age, here's what you'll find: 1 will be wealthy, 4 will be financially stable, 5 will continue working, not because they want to but because they have to; 36 will be dead; and 54 will be broke and dependent on friends, family, relatives, and the government to take care of them. SO WITH THAT BEING SAID, I WANT TO ASK YOU THIS: what can we do now to ensure that we don't end up struggling, like the 95% majority will?!?! I started with simply taking control of one area of my life: my health and fitness.
When I started this journey, I was broke, unhappy with my body, life, marriage, and just SETTLING for mediocrity bc I told myself that's just the cards I was dealt. Looking back now, almost a year since starting my journey, every area of my life has been transformed. I wake up KNOWING my purpose. I wake up with confidence. I wake up loving my life, my marriage, my team, my girls + EVERYTHING about life in general. All bc I made 1 little investment in MYSELF.
What's stopping you from transforming EVERY aspect of your mediocre life? Yeah I just said that bc statistics say so. Money? Time? Lack of accountability? Fear of failure? TELL ME SO I CAN HELP YOU GIRL! I WAS THERE TOO. Until I said NO MORE. Ya girl is done with mediocrity. God did not make us to be mediocre. Step into that power you beautiful, kick ass unicorn you 🦄
