Can you guess what’s missing???
Week 01 of my online group down and it was FUN!
That was my biggest takeaway.
I loved seeing everyone motivating each other through just old school ‘showing up’, also making short helpful videos to each other, sharing their gains, all these other summer activities they’re doing since they’re not freaked out about eating and sweating for hours each day.
And yup, I stay accountable too! .
Sum it up: drum roll plz!!!!
☀️eating that is realistic not perfection-based.
☀️treats are built-in so “shame-game” be gone
☀️4 days/week of 35 min sessions
☀️3 rest OR freebee days to be outdoors, doing summerish natural exercise if you want
☀️simple no frills lifting and interval cardio training newbie level to fit-freak level so y’all get something 🤣
☀️flexibility to move these 4 days when “life happens“ without the guilt or ditch-it default. .
☀️Perfect for the busy working person! .
Now ready. Shhh! I was fit going in. And I’m sore! So humbling and for EVERYONE who wants to do summer smart as hell!
Me and @clairvoyant.kid did - we used a freebee day to get some good walking in around the Bronx Zoo 🦍
Shoot me a msg to roll with us tmrw. And let the good vibrations happen! 🏄🏻♀️🏊🏻♀️⛳️🥨🐠🍻
The Snow Fight was great. (Top) Look at the way Kylo intensely stares at her. (Below) Love the ferociousness of Rey! Hope we see them in a rematch lightsaber duel in Episode IX.
Trust does not come from another’s behavior. It’s in fact, the opposite: trust is something we ‘give’ ‘to’ the other.
Relationships require trust because love is _not_provable.
Love is only expressible. (Rosof, 2013)
Always secretly wanted a job where I could report in a Star Wars top and shorts.
Wait! I do! 🤣
Seriously Sunday is always my most productive day ‘at work’ as a coach.
I lay out the entire week of what I need to accomplish for everyone
Because, well, another secret: I always wanted to not feel stressed on Monday. Hated the ‘calendar work week’
Monday I rest. Sunday I work. Cuz that’s my prerogative 😘
There has never been a time where I didn’t work. Since I was 15.
I pretty much always hustled, even 2 jobs then.
And I’m one of those people who doesn’t avoid work.
I enjoy helping people.
I love people!
That’s just bottom line.
But I’m a THINKER at heart.
And for years I’ve needed to unplug sometimes. I find listening to music and letting my mind replay images with no sound per se the most soothing thing.
For years I did jobs because, well, they served a function. They paid bills.
And I did them well because I wanted to be paid MORE.
Well, duh, who doesn’t !
But as you grow older I hear you, you want to do something that, yes, pays the bills, but that you wake up PSYCHED about, that doesn’t JUST satisfy a ‘bill’.
Something that rocks your core.
That doesn’t make you neglect yourself or forget who you are.
I think that is the gravest error most of us women make.
We make our whole existence around our family and then our work because it fits the ‘status’ that’s ‘approved’
Put some music on.
Let your mind wander.
Remember what YOU like.
And where YOU fit in.
Separate from your kids, your loved ones.
Find what you don’t mind doing.
Life is NOT ... NOT ... NOT only about ‘getting by’ or ‘going through the motions.’
It’s about growth.
Hey! You! Smile! It’s Day 06 of a new commitment.
Would you know, it’s fun. And the time flies in this session I’m doing, focusing on doing the actions that will give a healthy strong look to the shoulders.
I went hard in the hiit portion but omitted the core since I taught fitness class this morning. Abs had quite enough 😣
I’m planning some pool time after this. .
I think it’s important to remember that behind every “fit” person is a story of courage and patience. We know what the “old” us used to feel like and look like.
Maintaining is super hard once you get to where you wanna be. Cuz it’s not like you come to the end and go ‘well gee that was fun! Now I’m gonna go back to what I used to do...’ You’ll laughing! But you know what I mean!! 🤣
I am grateful that in 4 years I have had access to programs that morph me EACH AND EVERY TIME.
There is a new result.
A new joy.
Makes me happy. ♥️
Hopeful for others.
Amazing when I look back at the amount of hours and stress I had to put in to secure a full time job as a young woman starting out. I had a roommate, and barely enough for anything else let alone to cover my own expenses.
Today I have several sources of income, one of which is working as a coach.
And I don’t report to a location per se, unless I want to, I work mostly online.
That educational job in the 90s I had didn’t make a paycheck for taking care of myself and guiding others to also.
In fact if anything I was pretty high on anxiety , exhausted, would take naps during my breaks, ate like s*** and was at the height of my bulimia.
I had to commute at 6am and would be dozing at the wheel after.
Whether you have others sources of income, wanna put this away for your kids college, buy a trip for your family, or just cover a pesky credit card, it’s totally up to you
But there’s nothing more rewarding than getting paid to be WELL, getting others to be WELL and therefore do better at their jobs.
Taking on 5 more mentees for July. This month is perfect with a new coach test group available and a wonderful new program for you to inspire others in.
But this door is closing - so don’t put off!

You just have no idea how your life can change for the better when you do what is most UNCOMFORTABLE and SCARY to you.
For me, it was admitting I didn’t have control.
That as ‘independent’ as I was, I needed others.
I needed to break a cycle of COMPLAINING and ‘pretending’ I was all-together when actually I was very fragmented.
It was about not worrying so much about what my PAST had said about me.
Oh you have asthma.
Oh you were never a team player.
Oh you can never beat genetics.
Oh you can only be a teacher.
Oh you’ll never get a healthy relationship with food.
Oh you’ll never speak like other people.
Oh you’ll never make any money doing THAT.
Oh you can’t get results without a gym.
Oh you’ll never afford that.
Oh you’ll quit that in a few months.
Sure am glad I didn’t let my past or others define me.
Found a way to help my man enjoy salmon. Since fish is not really his thing.
This was really delish and on our current #mindfuleating plan.
I took mashed sweet potato, about 6 oz of cooked salmon, 1 hard boiled egg, 3 dashed of hot sauce, 2 tsp Greek yogurt, salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, 1 tsp olive oil, fresh chopped parsley, 1/4 cup cheddar cheese. fiber-filled carbohydrate & protein & some healthy fats for accessorizing! ☀️
Really AWESOME day when you get to FaceTime with your daughter 7 hours ahead in Russia! ♥️♥️♥️
Every year 2 of my clan go overseas . I want them to have that cultural and Linguistic experience.
My parents made sure I made it to France, Denmark, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Norway @beate_ber 😘 Mexico Puerto Rico, and around the USA too and I am forever grateful for that! Shaped who I am today.
My intention is to set up a life that involves travel and that’s exactly what I’m doing!
Remember it’s not all roses
And blue seas and sting rays 🤣
But these joys you see people experience, their successes.
What goes through your head?
Good for them.
They probably got a lucky break.
They have skills I never got.
I’ll never have that.
There’s probably a catch ...
Yea there is a catch:
Yes I enjoy free trips each year based on the merit I show throughout the year as an online coach.
I’ve been privileged to accept and see many beautiful places bec of it.
Experiences I never had as an employee elsewhere and that is pretty damn cool.
What you don’t see are...
For every post about someone’s children, there are missing posts from babies that never came to live.
For every gratitude for a wonderful partner, there is the unspoken heartache of abuse and disrespect from others long gone.
For every amazing body positive shot, there are decades of self-loathing, body shame, pre-partem depression, therapy for eating disorder.
For every fitness feat there are years of grunting, cursing , crying, stopping, starting, doubting, anger.
For every award or perk there are hours at a camp site, sticking kids in front of TV for a short time, staying up when your family went to bed, missed dinners, missed drinks, missed shows. Missed rsvp’s.
And it’s OK!
For every inch lost and lb lost, there were pictures never taken, outfits skipped, negative thoughts about your diff parts..
For every amazing experience shared, there were anxiety-ridden nights over how to provide for your kids, years spent on medications for a body trashed by sedentary daily duties, debt collectors calling, you had to choose between filling your tank for $4 or buying fruit, milk, and bread.
For every team award, and life changed there is someone putting in the time, sacrificing, wanting to quit some days, Exhausted, questioning ...
Just LIKE YOU.
No super Power-endowed.
No luck involved.
Just a mom willing to say money matters as much as experiences do, it’s not evil, it’s an exchange of goods, and everyone deserves it.
