Thank you my adopted LA family and the best crew in the biz for filling my 36th birthday with confetti, sparkle, and later-years Elvis impersonator (apparently Marilyn and the rapping chicken were already booked). 🕺🏻#thisis36#trousdale
Date night with @majorseanbond ❤️
Do y’all make a point of going on dates with your SO? We didn’t used to be great at this but as the 7th year of marriage looms over us, we’re determined to avoid the dreaded 7 year itch. And one way we’re doing that is prioritizing date nights!
What fun stuff do you do with other half?
I’ll just call this the GOOD FAT SNACK! It’s all the good fats that my body loves! Notice how I said MY body? That’s because we are bio-individuals and what works for one person’s body might be poison for another person. Just because some foods are real and healthy, it doesn’t mean that it’s good for YOUR body. And this is why versus writing up diet plans for my clients, I act as a support system for them figuring out what foods work for them. I encourage them to try new things, and to keep the food as real as possible. I give them tips and tricks to help them, but ultimately it is the individual who is able to find out for them self what their body responds positively to. I encourage you to try journaling how food makes you feel. Explore the reasons behind the choices you’re making too. Is it a choice you made because of emotions, stress, or being limited on time. Did you make your choice mindfully, or not even give it a second thought? Many people still think if it’s on the shelf in the store, it makes it ok. SO NOT TRUE!!! Learn to read the labels, learn about how sugar harms the body, educate yourself!! But if you don’t, you really can’t complain about the future illnesses and diseases you will very likely encounter. And that would be sad 😞. 💕Dani -

Boob light be gone! 😂
We’ve been in our house for 2 and a half years and my vision is slowly but surely coming together! My poor husband thinks every time we do something that we’re done. Not even close my friend. 😆
I’m hoping to get some of the bigger projects done in 2019! Do you have anything on your home improvement wish list?
I’m 37 now and people are ALWAYS saying to me: “Danny! You look SO young! What do you do for your skin?” .
OK, that actually doesn’t happen 😂BUT I would like to think I have a few little tricks I can share with all you ladies who are trying to outrun the wrinkles like I try to outrun a fart in the wind
1. Sexy Skin from Within- I have been drinking @Organifi Red Juice for it’s anti-oxidants and anti-aging properties, as well as the probiotics & turmeric for inflammation. An unhappy gut biome can show up in the skin, which is one of our largest detoxifying organs. You can get 20% off using THEBESTLIFE for Organifi products
2. Skincare- I started using Nerium in 2013. There are some before and afters if you slide through, and honestly, this has tightened my skin and fixed discoloration more than anything I have ever tried (including IPL lasers). I have been using for over 5 years now, and I ran out in September for 3 weeks and holy crap, did I notice, my eyelid skin started to sag, my face felt less firm. Never again! Get the Nerium AD night cream at http://unstoppableglow.nerium.com
3. Prevention- Botox. Yup, I’ve been getting small botox injections in my forehead for ten years now. If you’re in Vegas, look up my girl @anastasiavanl You don’t have to have a frozen face with botox. For some things, less is more.
4. Damage Control- I recently started doing DermaPen treatments monthly. Google it, but it helps get rid of some acne scarring from my younger days, as well as plump up fine lines and making my pores smaller, and my skin brighter.
5. Maintenance- I use a small derma roller at home, which doesn’t go as deep as a derma pen treatment, but also helps stimulate more collagen. Start with the .25 and work your way up. Find it at http://dannyj.com/roller
6. Special Event- For a bright and smooth look for an event or just needing to feel fresh without peeling later, I love getting a dermaplane facial. They take a blade and scrape off the top most layer of skin, revealing fresh, yummy new skin.
7. Hydrate- soooo I hear you should drink water… I’m adding this but I can’t say I follow this advice 😬
8. Last Resort- If all else fails, wear a Snapchat Filter 🤷🏼♀️

This is 36.
My Mom got sick when she was 36 and I spent many of my past birthdays living in fear that my story would duplicate hers. It doesn’t.
My story is mine. Her story was hers, and in fact I’m sure to have built so much of my character because I know that life can be painfully short.
But today I turn 36 and one day I will turn 46, then 56, 66, 76, 86 and 96.
I’m here to make an impact on the ripple effect of raising two beautiful daughters. I’m here to love my family so deeply that when my time comes to move on they’ll know that they were my entire reason for being.
I’m here to make my friends laugh, and in turn laugh at their jokes too (I have the funniest friends) and to never apologize for my facial expressions when the most inappropriate things make me snort with laughter.
I’m here to give hope, love, friendship, a shoulder, a hand, genuine compliments and time. I’m here to make every person feel happier, healthier or more joyful with every interaction I have with them.
Ultimately I’m here to live like I’m living (as opposed to saying “live like I’m dying”) I am healthy, I am loved, I am so effing blessed I am brought to tears daily, and I am 36 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
Well this is 36! Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes yesterday. I think the most memorable part of my day was hearing Alex say “Happy Birthday Mommy” for the first time. My heart just about exploded. So thank you everyone for making my day so awesome. I’m a lucky lady! Feeling fab at 36 or as my hubby called it thirty-sexy! Hey I’ll take it. ❤️ #oneyearolder#thisis36#thirty -sexy
🖤 I can only imagine that this is what your morning looks like... sleeping in on a snowy Saturday, wood stove busting, and unicorn snuggles 🦄 I can only imagine the delicious cup of coffee you’ll drink as you read over hand-made cards. I can only imagine it’s followed by a serene trip into the woods, trees painted with snowflakes. I can only imaging this is what 36 looks like! HAPPY BIRTHDAY my incredible, wonderful (and handsome) man!! I cannot wait to be home to with you to celebrate another year of obstacles overcome, adventures reveled, and love shared 😘 Enjoy your day with little miss and know that you’re always in my heart no matter where in the world I am 🌎💋 xo #bithdayboy#celebrate#thisis36#manymoretocome#longdistancelove#ilu
Friends, I am at a loss! You have truly gone above and beyond. Thank you so much for the calls, texts, posts, even picture collages to wish this old gal a happy birthday! It means the WORLD! Also special shout out to @samleblanc82 who took my request for birthday key lime pie quite literally! 36 is already off to a beautiful start! 😍☀️🌴🌊🍰
A week away from my birthday selfie.
I fkn crushed 35 👊 I quit my job, traveled solo for the first time, easily landed a way better job, completed my nutrition cert, upgraded my apartment situation, stayed committed to fitness, and left a lot of toxicity down at the bottom of that mountain I’m climbing. (Bye Felicia ✌️)
If you know me, you know I’m super cautious about how and who I spend my time with. It’s because I’m focused and it takes me a long ass time to let my guards down. I’m grateful that I have people who support me, hike with me, and catch me when I slip, but my hike up the mountain is very often a solitary one. 🧗♀️
It’s all good tho, I am so excited to see who is going to be joining me when I get to the top. 🏔 🙏☝️#goingup#riseup#getupstandup#prebirthday#prebirthdayselfie#reflecting#goalgetter#betterfasterstronger#solodolo#nomoredeadweight#nomorebullshit#respect#winnerscircle#thisis36 (almost) #csws
"The best part about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've been."
Birthdays are fun. 🎂🎉🎈
For me, it's always been a day to reflect and remember all the happenings of the past 365 days. The are so many stories, memories, lessons learned, pictures, trips, babies, choices, weddings and so much more that have filled my heart. 😍
Keep everything in your heart and let it help you grow. Each day that passes continues to shape your life. ✌️
I'm going to enjoy my day and be thankful for all the love I have in my life. 🌹
Lover of days that require sunglasses, pink lipstick and a great pin on my jacket! The #stepuptojustice pin arrived just in time to add to my winter jacket. Wearing it proudly! @stacyrupprechtbutler #thisis36#ivebecomemyparents
604. Watching "Wonder" with the kids and reminiscing about seeing it in the theater in Boston almost exactly a year ago when Daddy was right across the street here in San Jose interviewing
605. Breakfast for dinner
606. Hot tea to warm me up
607. Pictures of snow
608. All the years I got to live in snowy climates

Happy Friday everyone! Let’s do some #fridayintroductions shall we?!
My favourite time of day is...first thing in the morning and late afternoon.
When I think about the end of the year, I feel...excited.
On my mind for next week is...THANKSGIVING
Tonight I’m going to...go to sleep as early as I can. #thisis36
That’s it for me for the week friends. What are you doing tonight? I’d love to hear 😉 😘.
My throwback includes some fun times with these ladies! We have traveled together, laughed, cried and pushed each other to be our best. These babes keep it and me real everyday. Each one shows up, kicks ass and then repeats!! I’m forever grateful to my team and this wellness coaching business. It took me on a path that I always envisioned myself on. My own boss, zero 9-5, helping and empowering others and making some really good friendships along the way.
Until I better understood, I was skeptical about coaching too! Coaching has changed my life in more ways then one. Why NOT find out more and possibly join my coaching team?! I'm looking to add 5 more coaches to my team in 2018 and here are the attributes I am looking for:
* Passionate about fitness & helping others
* Done with excuses
* Willing to grow your business online
* Willing to invest in your health
* Support others while on your journey
* Ready to make changes to live life by design
Do these describe YOU?! If so, I'd love to talk! Be sure to comment below with "ME" so I can message you and we can get you on your way to being your own boss! These ladies took a chance and we haven’t looked back since.💜💯😘
“I don't ever wanna stop
I'm gonna give it all I've got and when they ask me, “who could ask for more?” Can't stand still
I won't slow down
When I go out, I wanna go out dancing” 💃🏻 Always dancing through life, just trying to do the best I can! 💕 #thisis36#dancingwithmyself#f45training
I passed!!! 94.6. I realized on the way to the airport that I didn’t fill you back in on my PT test!
I have to make a shout to my friend Danielle for meeting me!
First, all the stars aligned and I got the max points for my waist measurement!!! Praise God!!! All my hard work in finally paying off :) I haven’t maxed the waist since before kids! I also maxed push ups! The sit-ups were not good at all. I barely passed. My back seized up and I literally quit moving. Thankfully I did just enough to get 6 points out of 10.
I knew I was fine to pass the test going into the run. Mother Nature however WASN’T ok. It was 40 degree very windy and raining!!! I was jumping over puddles LOL. I managed to do a mile and a half in 12:02!!! 8 min mile pace for the win! I think I could have gone faster but I was afraid of slipping. Overall I’m so happy with the day and looking for improvement on my sit up test! Thanks for the encouragement and prayers! Next test is 365 days out!
👉🏼Create the life you cannot wait to wake up to.👈🏼
And also the shoulders you want to wake up to. I dunno about u but this program is giving me shoulder muscles I never knew I had and it’s pretty great ! .
Perk of working out at home. Frank !!!! .

Had the best workout partner today! This girl will still out burpee me any day😆. She usually wants to do a dance workout, but asked to workout with me tonight and of course I said yes!! (Even with minimal space and an obnoxious dobe😉) Here we are, final move, and giving our best #maxout till the end! Next a quick blast of cold air because winter showed up in Florida🤦🏻♀️. Then a final pose down for the camera💪😆...she wins!
Love this middle child💗
@shaunt ‘s biggest fan😁
I think tonight's story reel is a really good representation of my personality! 🤣 It's kinda all over the place, but 100% me! I wanted to start this account to encourage other #women to live #healthy lifestyles and be their true authentic selves. If you get a good meal idea or find #inspo from a quote then AWESOME! If you find encouragement to try something new then YES! I'll cheer you on along the way! Women should empower others. Do you. Be you. #ItsNotFitnessItsLife#thefitlifechronicles#alexcookshealthyeats#thisis36
Not usually... but EVERY.
Wednesday night. I have Daughter Date Night with the one who made me a mom.
My First Love. ❤️ I’m glad she’s not old enough for social media yet. So I can transparently say.
It’s HARD. Its near IMPOSSIBLE.
A man who deserves support in his goals.
4 girls near full time. Bjj. Cheer. School stupid hat day. 3 meals. Logistics on logistics.
Personal responsibility of the size of Jaymes business/personal logistics. Errands on errands.
2 business of my own. To you know pay my bills and future.
Employees that are my family. And I would cut my own throat before disappointing them.
The Gym for 2 hours. Cuz I’m trying to not look 36.
Showering - semi regularly.
It’s HARD. Its near IMPOSSIBLE.
Then how in the actual fuck do I do it?!!! I block it off. I make it NOT an option. I plow through anything and anyone who attempts to make it not happen.
Simply because I chose to. From my desire to. 🙏✨ #ThisIs36#raisingbabiesandbusinesses#amp#hct#momlife#entrepreneur#ifitsimportantitsnotanoption#wheretheresawilltheresaway
…and happy people don’t kill their husbands.
Is that what you hear when you read that? 😂
But seriously, this time of year I think we need all the endorphins we can get. It’s darker, colder, and life is busier. It affects us all, but it affects me 10 times more if I skip my workout.
This is the time to get yourself moving- not January 1st! Not sure what to do or where to start? I’m here to help! 💕
