Just read this outloud to my girls. What an amazing testimony!!! So happy for Ashley! This is 3 months on my fav body balancing combo (triplex) + our new amazing skin care 🙌🏼 “I had mild teen acne in the past but after dealing with the flu in January 2014, I woke up one morning to this face. It burned & itched, kept spreading (shoulders, back, chest).The really horrible, red, bumpy, this-aint-acne face (none of these pictures are edited, I had a hard time uploading them honestly). I saw a dermatologist who gave me Diflucan (antifungal), told me it's called Malasezzia & that I'll have to live with it to some degree the rest of my life. I asked why all of the sudden? Healthy people's skin doesn't look like this; do I have an underlying issue? No answers. The Diflucan DID clear it in about 3 weeks, but going to class, getting engaged 💍: I was humiliated by my skin. It never completely went away & left hyper-pigmentation spots (dark spots) everywhere. I still dealt with breakouts, itchy spots, & 'orange skin' texture all over. I avoided certain lighting & tried to find a wedding dress 👰🏻 that didn’t showcase my flawed skin (a bit vain, but I was soooo self-conscious). Fast forward a year: I saw 2 more dermatologists about my flare-ups. Same thing "You'll just have to live with it.”
That wasn't good enough. I tried special diets & skin supplements; it made very little impact. So I gave up, dealt with the bi-weekly itchy face & bumps & ignored it. I had a baby boy, we moved.
I JUST AVOIDED THE MIRROR.
Then 3 months ago, Bethany posted on Instagram about Plexus. She said that Plexus had done wonders for her family & she had some samples of their new face serum. Free sample? Why not? 🤷🏻♀️ After bombarding her with questions I honestly felt like it was one of those higher end, fad supplements that wouldn't do anything & cost me an arm & a leg. But she sent me oodles of before/ after pics so I decided to try it for a month. Then 2. & today marks the 3rd month!
It’s official! I have transitioned over to a new home with OTF 😊 I am so blessed to be apart of this amazing team with Orangetheory, there is so much to come from this new wonderful team and I am thrilled to be apart of the change and future accomplishments. ❤️ I will miss my girls but I’m ready to have as many memories with them with my new team 😊🎉🎊
Day 3 of #liift4 . I didn't intend to use my arms/shoulders for anything important today 😂
I get asked why I push myself so much, if I'm so sore afterwards.
My answer, I can't keep doing the same thing day in and day out, and expect different results. 🤷
I've spent to much of my life taking it easy. I'm always been afraid of stepping out of my comfort zone, and avoiding hard things...... What a crappy lesson to teach my daughters!! 😩
When I started this journey, I vowed to follow it through. With my fitness, my nutrition and my business.
My girls are watching their momma blow this thing out of the water! They're watching me show up, every damn day, for me...and in doing so, I'm a MUCH better momma for them ♥️ They're my "why". Whats your why?
#tbt Thanks to the @rugbyoutlaws and @nlthompson for suggesting Bill "barrel chested" Skiles to join our club. Great addition, good ruger! Any outlaw that comes out to Denver is welcome on the Highlanders.
How often we forget that hard work can literally pay off. In this day and age it seems as though individuals, more often than not, think success will just drop in their lap. In the social media world, they'll post that perfect photo, share the funniest snap or story, or tweet the best one liner and, boom, success. They see these influencers online and think that they just live a life of luxury but what you don't see is what it took for them to get there and that IS their job. They still have to network, know their demographic, know when the industry (their niche) is changing in order to stay relevant, and they are their own guest relations/customer service.
In the real world, some think they can work 5-6 hours a day or maybe just 3-4 days a week. Just enough so they can pay the bills and then live a life that seems extravagant to others. In turn the swooning of others who envy their "lifestyle" equates success. What they don't realize is the person they are working for is putting in 60+ hours a week, or if it is his/her business they're working 24/7. When the phone rings, even on his/her day off, they pick it up. All the while they could be sitting on a beach when they need to pick up that phone call.
Everyone out there has their own ideal of what success is and means. The one common denominator is work ethic. Are you willing to put in the time now even if you know you are not going to be compensated right away? Are you going to be willing to get knocked down just to get right back up to try again? Are you willing to learn from others? Do you know what is it going to take to earn success in your field and are you willing to do what it takes? Everyone always wants to know what the secrets to success are. The #1 secret is: The secrets to success will not work if you don't.

The things that NO MOMMY wants to admit... "I hate waking up in the morning" ☀️
"I pray for bedtime to come faster" 😴
"I'll just let them watch one more episode on Netflix" 🖥
"This is my 2nd, 3rd, 4th, cup of coffee today" ☕️
"I need to order something else from Amazon to make my stressful life easier" 🛍
"Maybe these Oreos will help me relax" 🍪
"No one understands what having "x amount of kids" under "x amount of age" is like...with one of them having special challenges. They can't judge me. I can't help how stressed out I am" 👶🏻👦🏼
"I just need to workout. I don't need supplements"🏋🏼 "My friends tried that and they said it didn't work so I'm sure it's a scam". 🚫 ✋🏼✋🏼✋🏼STOP. Just press pause. 💗 You don't have to live like this anymore! I get it.... Your husband will lose his lid if you order one more thing that is a "waste of money". But WHAT IF, this is the Lord's answer for your family. WHAT IF, it makes you feel human again and puts dollars of provision in your bank account that not only pay for groceries but start paying for your MORTGAGE.
I'm here to tell you there is no "what if". The answer is yes. And just for YOU, tired mama.... 😘 I have a discount. Message me today, and I'll be your friend.
Your positive change might not seem that positive amongst your surroundings. It seems that when you change for the better, the people around you will be inspired to change. But often after they’ve tried their hardest to make you stop.
Live your truth and don’t let anyone ever dilute your power to change. You can do it.
It’s been a week back at work. To say that the vacation seemed like a day long is an understatement. Still trying to find my routine, struggling to go to bed early to run in the morning. So running and cross training after work is what I do. I guess I still have time before the school starts in the end of August to readjust. The semester is going to be a hard one (2 accounting classes and 1 business one), I can explain more, if anybody interested about balancing full-time work - school - running..oh and family 😆 one day it’s gonna pay out #takemebacktothemountains#vacation#workhard#playharder#cleveland#washington#mtrainier
