[Day #30 ] Ending the lovely walkthankful November with this beautiful view of the space needle from work. I am thankful that today the clouds cleared up and I was able to catch glimpse of this iconic Seattle giant! Lovely dramatic clouds that speak of Seattle’s true spirits - cool, hanging in there, rolling with the flow. I walked 19/30 days this month which is 19 more than what I would have otherwise :-) #walkthankful #fit2bwalking
Day 30▪️#walkthankful ▪️#fit2bwalking ▪️#fit2b I made it! So happy about this walking challenge. Going to keep it up into December and the new year. One of those faces opted out after the picture was taken. No names. 😲 One ended up riding a bike, and the other landed on dad's shoulders most of the way. Just walked our driveway four times over. It was a mild 60 degrees. Storm's coming tonight. Lightning was in the distance. Thankful for this imperfect life of mine where I get to walk, eat, play, raise babies, read great books, and love the man of my dreams. 💜
[Day #28 ] Walk inside the house due to rains and darkness [Day #29 ] Walked a lot through the city to keep certain appointments and meetings in various buildings. I was thankful to notice the lone burst of fall colors on a tree surrounded by a lot of other tall trees that already shed their leaves, sometimes it doesn’t hurt to be small and short :-) #walkthankful #fit2bwalking
Day 29▪️#walkthankful ▪️#fit2bwalking ▪️#fit2b The view out and back. Walked the driveway times four because of the napper inside. Didn't want to get too far away. A nice 62 degrees at walk time. 💚The boy in the tree. Love him. Thankful for him. He's squirmy, snuggles on his terms only, frequently screams at his siblings, often randomly tells me he loves me for no reason at all, is very bossy, knows how to do everything the correct way and isn't afraid to say so, and adds a bit of excitement in our family. 💚
Day 28▪️#walkthankful ▪️#fit2bwalking ▪️#fit2b Got out in the cold tonight. Didn't want to. Hubs came with. No excuses. Spooked the neighbors I think since it was dark and we didn't use flashlights. 😬 And on to my thankful. This is Dena. She is camera shy. I chased her down for a pic and then my Emma stepped in. Needless to say we have a good time. Burned many calories laughing today. 😂 Love her. 💜 *Yes, it's blurry. I know. Also I've missed some days posting my walk on here, but I've only missed walking one day this month. 😊 @8arrows_adventures @goose.webb
That time I parked way out in the parking lot of the school so I could claim a walk on my way into meeting with my kids homeschool consultant on the BUSIEST business day of our year yesterday as we wrapped up cyber Monday and yes I know this is a runon sentence but my brain is mush from doing alll the things except all the things my amazing staff does so I can be a mom in the midst of it all 🤪😆💻💪🏼🔥🙏🏻😍😎🤷♀️ #realmomrealceo #fit2b #thankgodforcybersales #pileofbooks #somanyhats #hybridhomeschool #walkthankful #walking #fit2bwalking
[Day #25 ] no walk, spent the day wrapping up the Thanksgiving weekend! [Day #26 ] another day full of appointments and it was finally raining so didn’t go out for walk. I however walked inside the home after dinner. Growing up my mom would never let us sit down immediately after dinner, we had to walk around the house - shatpavali (shat = 100, pavali = steps) - to let the food settle down before we sit or lounge. Well I remembered the childhood lesson and walked >shat pavali. So convenient for a walking challenge in November :-) Today I am thankful for having learnt lessons of a healthy life in a sustainable way, now it is up to me to revive and live those everyday :-) and oh btw the tree is something my girls put up all by themselves (proudly so) over the weekend in preparation for gifts from Santa, I mean Christmas ;-) #walkthankful #fit2bwalking
My a walk today but raking before the snow hits became a necessity as the last time the snowblower had issues. I’m tired well over 5,000 steps before noon. So thankful for Fit2B giving me the tools to rake safely for my core. My arms may complain but I think I did okay. #fit2b #walkthankful #cybermondaysaleatfit2b see my bio for link on my blog and Fit2B cybersale
Day 25▪️#walkthankful ▪️#fit2bwalking ▪️ #fit2b Walked indoors today. Local friends know why. Weather is not so pretty like yesterday. A lovely wind-chill of 15 degrees at the moment. Cold front is very here. So glad I'm a member of #fit2b ! Thankful for Grandpa or Gaga as he's affectionately called. The youngest boy wanted a wagon ride on Thanksgiving Day and what could Grandpa do but oblige the little bossy boy, lol. He's a terrific grandpa to my kiddos!
[Day #24 ] Walk in the woods. It was almost dark when we started our walk, and my little walk buddy was fearful of the darkness and jungle and lions and tigers in the jungle. That’s when we looked up and saw light :-) maybe why leaves fall in winter when the days are short is to let more light reach us for longer. She looked up and saw that there is still light and we had a nice little walk. I am thankful for the walking partner who warmed my hands during the walk, I am thankful we heard an owl hoot in the silence of the trail, I am thankful we discovered alertness in other senses to experience the surroundings since it was darker, I am thankful for learning to look up to find the light, the inspiration to keep going when everything around you might seem dark. There always is light :-) #walkthankful #fit2bwalking
Day 24▪️#walkthankful ▪️#fit2bwalking ▪️#fit2b Beautiful blue skies! November hasn't been too bad for walking outside this year. 🚲Had a biker join me today. 🚲 While I don't have on crazy socks this afternoon I do own a few pairs. My mom is the queen of crazy socks so she drags the rest of us along willing or not, lol. I do, however, have new "house" shoes...my thankful. Since moving to a new home we opted to be shoe free. After more than a year I've decided it's the cause for some serious foot and occasional leg pain. Bought these yesterday and can already tell a difference. They're like a cozy sweatshirt but for your feet. 😬
[Day #22 ] no walkbut extremely thankful to spend it at home in peace and quiet [Day #23 ] Today’s walk was merely through the aisles of Costco, but intention counts right?!. The beautiful day with family during the thanksgiving weekend ended with this lovely hide and seek of moon with clouds. I am so thankful to be able to see this wonder in the warmth of my living room through the big wide skylight! The beauty of this moment was that the moon emerged from behind those dark clouds and shone bright. Right after this capture the dark clouds were gone, the moon shone bright and uninterrupted but the glory was grand when it emerged from darkness. Sometimes in life you have to see bad to appreciate good, you have to go through darkness to appreciate light, you have to be still to capture that subtle moon’s motion, the dichotomy of life is constantly around us! #walkthankful #fit2bwalking
Happy thanksgiving! Did you do a turkey trot? This year was my first one! Better than a medal, I got a finisher mug ☕️ I’m thankful for these two teammates of mine who kept me company as we walked through the Christmas lights 🎄#walkthankful #fit2bwalking #hoodtocoast #toejammin #portlandinternationalraceway #turkeytrot #santahat #friends #accountability #fitmoms #postpartumfitness #postnatal #fit2b @winatiese
Day 22▪️#walkthankful ▪️#fit2bwalking ▪️#fit2b I think this is the first Thanksgiving I've gone for a walk! Gorgeous day so that helps. 😉 A slightly different view this afternoon. My thankful for the day is the crazy person with the red hair. My sister. Up for Thanksgiving and for good! She keeps things interesting for sure, but I love her all the same. 💜 @bettyrouge
[Day #20 ] hazy day my walk consisted of walk to the commute. Fog surrounded the city and provided for some lovely sights. On foggy days it seems the clouds that usually stay way above are within reach today, it lifts up the spirits and I realized my walk was more energetic! [Day #21 ] all the fog was lifted off, the Macy’s star was put up and shining bright, the city trees are decked with pretty lights. I am thankful for witnessing the onset of winter and holidays so closely over everyday commute walks. I am thankful to the city that makes effort to put up the lights and spread holiday cheer. I wonder if it is co incidental that the holidays fall over otherwise cold and bleak winter! The lights of the holidays warms the soul, the step, the surroundings! #walkthankful #fit2bwalking
Day 21▪️#walkthankful ▪️#fit2bwalking ▪️#fit2b Another beautiful day. Sunny and 59. A bit of a breeze though. Hence the clip...the claw. I outgrew the tiny clips so recently upgraded. Walked on the "big" road since dad's home. Gorgeous view down and back. Walking back up the driveway and this kid's running at me. I've already featured him here, but he's rated another share. He's running at me because he wants me to stay outside to see his new (relocated) home and store. He's pictured in the store. You can't read the paper but it says "Auto Parts." He wants the world to know he's open for business. A few old tires, a few bricks, and some border stones are stocked and ready. Makes me giggle but I'm so proud. So thankful for him and his creativity!
I have this friend. She is also a partner in Fit2B. She walks with me and reminds me to smile. She does my hair and makeup for workouts on fit2b.com and sets up many of the backgrounds. I’ve known her since we were little girls in Sunday school. She didn’t ruin this shot. She made it better ❤️#friendsforlife #bossbabes #bendoregon #yoga #reversewarrior #deschutesriver #tunnel #river #photobomb #fitspo #diastasisrecti #girlfriends #walkthankful #fit2bwalking @alicebehnke photo by @chrisbehnke
Day 20▪️#walkthankful ▪️#fit2bwalking ▪️#fit2b Another cool sunny day! Got my walk in. Up and down the long driveway times four while two boys play outside, one naps, and the other is playing Minecraft. Thankful for a good book! This is my current read. A gift for my son on his recent birthday. He zipped through it already so now it's my turn. 😬 📖▪️📖▪️📖▪️📖▪️📖▪️📖
❤️if you ever walk in your jammies 😆Fuzzy twilight pic from my quick walk. I’m thankful for a full day at home in my bathrobe with my kids, working with my team remotely to prepare for our HUGE cyber Monday sale next week 💥 discounts up to 60% off 💥 stay tuned 🍁 #walkthankful #cybermonday #fit2b #bathrobe #pajamaday #realmomrealceo #keepingitreal #postpartumbody #postpartumfitness #postpartum #fitmom #walkingmom #twinklelights #farmgirl #diastasisrecti #core #tummysafe #diastasissafe #sale #blackfriday #homefitness #onlinefitness
[Day #17 ] no walk [Day #18 ] no walk however we have had stellar sunshine over the weekend and there is something about sunshine that makes you content and cheerful. I am thankful for the sun shining down upon us :-) [Day #19 ] Today’s walk was in downtown. The Christmas tree is now completely up and spreading Christmas cheer! I am thankful to be able to work in a place with lot of public transit stops around. I am thankful for the super accessible buses from that location that run through the downtown. I am thankful to the kind bus drivers who flash a smile and greet a warm hello that instantly warms your heart after waiting at the strip for a few min on a chilly evening. I am thankful for the cops who work hard to keep the surroundings near our building safe. I loved the walk through the urban jungle today :-) #walkthankful #fit2bwalking
Day 19▪️#walkthankful ▪️#fit2bwalking ▪️#fit2b Don't let that sunshine deceive you. It is downright chilly this afternoon. Walked anyway. Thankful for laughter today! How can you not laugh at the goofball boys and their pig noses? They crack me up. And laughing burns calories, right? Hahaha! Win, win. 😬😜😁
#walkthankful #fit2b I can't help to think about the people I love and how some of them are going through some extremely difficult times right now. My life wouldn't be the same without these cherished friends that enrich it. They have always had my back and I only hope I can give them the support they need right now.
Day 16▪️#walkthankful ▪️#fit2bwalking ▪️#fit2b A gorgeous November afternoon for a walk. And to play in one's new digs. Ean is moving out. He's six. No angst. Just wants to be an outdoorsman. His home is an old trailer parked by the well house. He has a living room with furniture and plants. An old grill is serving up something... His brothers are amused. Ean even drew a picture this afternoon of himself in his new place. I love him so much and am so thankful he's mine, on loan anyway.
Day 15▪️#walkthankful ▪️#fit2bwalking ▪️#fit2b Tonight I walked. In my closet. While listening to a podcast. Both TV's were occupied and earbuds fall out of my ears. I needed sound. Whatever works, right? 😉 Thankful for beach vacations. Not bathing suit soaking up the sun beaches either. I'm talking PNW Oregon coast. There is nothing like it. This shot is my oldest son taken three and a half years ago. 💙
[Day #14 ] walk for commute, no pictures! [Day #15 ] I was working from home and sneaked a walk/hike in the woods right across the street from where we live. All the way through the walk I was constantly feeling grateful to live in PNW that offers us such close vicinity with the beautiful nature. Today was a brisk walk and on the way I ventured on some steep slopes. I was not prepared for this walk with any gear but the body has lot of power and wisdom to distribute stress on the right muscles if engaged properly, I learnt that from Beth @fit2bstudio. I am super thankful for finding true fit2b community since the past 3 years! #walkthankful #fit2bwalking
#walkthankful #fit2b thrilled to be back in Romans. Obviously kids are here... but just love this place as well. Great food, THE BEST shoe shopping, people are fantastic (doesn't matter how long I've been away... the restaurant owners always remember me). So today ... just thankful I know this little french bijou.
This is how we celebrate our anniversary...and how I got a walk in today (with a rake).😆 #Fit2B #Fit2BWalking #WalkThankful Today I am thankful for Jonathan who married me nine years ago today! So glad to do life with him and our two little MINI MEs. #ElizabethAstrid #GarrusMalachi
[Day #11 ] no walk, [Day #12 ] no walk. Despite that I am thankful I spent time instead playing family board games and connecting with friends. [Day #13 ] the walk to commute stops offered some lovely views. I am thankful we have more sun shining upon us this fall, I am thankful to witness the holiday spirit setting in as I saw a massive Macy’s Christmas tree being setup. #walkthankful #fit2bwalking
Has anyone else played this game? I'm guessing it's not real popular. I'd never heard of it until I found it at the thrift store recently. I think it's really fun! Challenging, but fun! These were our "walking" steps today. #Fit2B #Fit2BWalking #WalkThankful Today I'sm thankful for music and dancing! Life would be so dull without them! #ElizabethAstrid #GarrusMalachi
Walk to the park this afternoon with Grammy @djlawrence310 and Uncle @kyledavis.pdx I also did some swinging with this little dude, which is actually a really fun workout! #Fit2B #Fit2BWalking #WalkThankful Today I'm thankful for visits from out of town family.
Day 11 ▪️#walkthankful ▪️#fit2bwalking ▪️#fit2b So tonight I bundled up and took a walk...up and down my driveway. Total of about a mile. Had a "friend" offer to join me. He's also my thankful for today. And my favorite veteran! That's us twenty years ago. Too much to say about him so I'll just say I love him lots. Followed up my walk with Kelly's Total Body Stretching.
I’m thankful for my partners who help me keep fit2b.com growing and thriving and reaching thousands. It’s NOT easy! The internet world is wild and hard and sometimes I wanna bawl and crawl in a hole 😭 but then our forum gets another testimony, and another mama finds her mojo, and another baby arrives in strength, and another girl realizes she is beautiful as she is, and another #diastasis narrows, and another client quits leaking 🙌🏻 We went for a long walk yesterday morning after a late night of filming, and the conversations, laughter, and being out in nature filled my cup ☕️ Hey it’s not too late to join the Fit2B Walking Challenge 👉🏼link in bio 🍁 #walkthankful #fit2b #strongfriends #deschutesriver #bendoregon #lovewhereyouwork #friends4life #businesspartners #fitbiz #walkandtalk #fitspo #onlinefitness #homefitness #fitfamily #love #wewalktogether @alicebehnke @chrisbehnke @theweteyman
Day 10▪️#walkthankful ▪️#fit2bwalking ▪️#fit2b I did not get any walking in save a trip to @webbcityfm to get some fresh healthy eats for the week. Someone had a birthday today and we've been busy and I'm exhausted. Not trying to make excuses. It's been a crazy few days. Back to the farmer's market...I 💙 it. I'm so thankful for the market and all the vendors. It's open year round unlike many others. Friendly vendors with delicious locally grown food. It's one of my favorite things to do each week!
[Day #10 ] Sunny day today and so thankful that kids decided to take their bikes out for a spin despite being cold. I got some reading done and captured some more beauty from the yard. I have always loved strolling and reading. Thankful for the kids being self-dependent enough while biking that I could get some stroll and read while keeping a watch on them. And yes stroll does count as walk, at least in my dictionary. That is time I didn’t spend sitting/in front of a screen :-) #walkthankful #fit2bwalking
This morning we went down town to help hang lights in our local light park and then we walked down main street to watch the Veteran's Day Parade, (and got SO MUCH candy!)🙄☺😳🤪🤦♀️🤷♀️ So, I'm going to beat you all and say (a day earlier than usual) that I am very thankful for our veterans today. Thank you, veterens, so much for your service!💕 #ElizabethAstrid #GarrusMalachi #Fit2BWalking #Fit2B #WalkThankful
A brisk day but a fun Solar System walk with some old friends and our kids. (We told the kids the cold helped simulate the vacuum of space. 😀) Even though it was cold, and I ended up piggy backing the littlest back to the house from Neptune, it was actually pretty invigorating. Today I'm grateful for long time friends, and kids who enjoy being together. #walkthankful #fit2bmama #autumn #altamontny

[Day # 9] To bust the myth that all days are rosy, ideal and only full of color, here’s a picture of the only amount of walk I got. Climbing up and down cold concrete flight of stairs in between a day of constant meetings. I would have climbed about 30 flights up and down (ok more downs than ups) in the day. Today I am thankful for getting my walk and intention despite being indoors, it actually might have been a boon in disguise since today was a chilled 32F day outside! #walkthankful #fit2bwalking
Day 9▪️#walkthankful #fit2bwalking #fit2b Walked to and from the car so many times. Sped walked into and out of the library. Walked around Walmart a bit. Walked swiftly through parking lots. Walked through Aldi also. Walked around the skating rink a bit watching the kids skate and play. Walked and stood around the kitchen cooking dinner tonight. So tired today. It's been a long day and it's not over yet. Thankful for this beauty of a fireplace that's going to have a roaring fire in a short bit. It's supposed to get down to 18 degrees tonight. Brrr...
#walkthankful So glad to get in another walk! My buddy Abey came over to hang out and help me do some bulk cooking, so we took a break and took a walk on the trail. There’s a set of unused train tracks and lots of field area around so the boys explore while I toddle along with my 9 month pregnant self. At least we’re all having fun!
[Day #7 ] No walk [Day #8 ] while coming back to work from an appointment in Seattle, I missed the bus (because I was capturing these gorgeous views), so I took the opportunity to walk longer to another bus stop instead of waiting longer for the next bus to arrive. Today I am thankful for technology, google maps in this case, that make it easier for me to venture and explore around while enjoying the sun that came out in full glory on a crisp, cold fall morning! #walkthankful #fit2bwalking
Day 8▪️#walkthankful #fit2b #fit2bwalking Walked with Beth again. Also walked at Target. Went up and down almost every aisle. The only reason that happened semi-peacefully is a wonderful little invention called the shopping cart. Thank goodness for them!!! The only way to take three little boys shopping and not be running three different directions chasing them, lol. Sorry, no pics of the goobers in the cart. 😔
My original plan to walk to our lunch date today and/or walk to the midweek prayer meeting at church were both thwarted today by a lack of proper time management (and possibly a cold dark evening), but the basement needed some serious cleaning and I walked up and down the stairs a few times to get some steps in when I got home. Not much, but better than nothing. I'm thankful for my brother today, who came to visit this week. I love it when he comes to visit!! And he graciously puts up with my very lax cleaning regime (i.e. the house is a complete mess right now🤦♀️🤷♀️) #Fit2B #Fit2BWalking #WalkThankful @kyledavis.pdx
Went on my first walk in November. Trying so hard to get moving before baby comes. I know it’s good for me but sometimes it’s hard to get going! #walkthankful I’m thankful to have an amazing walking trail almost in my backyard that makes it easy to get a walk in!
Day 7▪️#walkthankful #fit2bwalking #fit2b Walked this afternoon. When the sun came out from the clouds I got warm, but then the breeze would blow. Brrr! So communication is important, right? Well, I love communicating clearly with my family and friends. That is why I am so thankful for gifs! They make all conversations better and FUNNER! I do realize my images aren't fully themselves in this format, but you get the idea. Laughter is, after all, the best medicine! 😂😆😂😆😂😆😂😆😂😆😂😆😂
Walked for an hour with a friend, and then walked some more to go NEW releases today, including our new podcast we did with @mywholecore and my @instituteforbirthhealing summit interview 🤰🏻🤰🏽🤰🏾Finding some #honeymushrooms was just extra joy! 🍄 if you are pregnant, recently birthed, or know someone who is please access these FREE resources via my bio link 🏃🏽♀️#WalkThankful #birthhealing #fit2b #cancer #podcast #birth #recovery #core #diastasisrecti #fitmoms #strongmoms #fit2bwalking #postnatal #postpartum
This afternoon I got home from work and my daughter asked to go for another walk. I think it's something she would like to do every day. It's one of the few times she doesn't have to share me with her brothers. I was honestly exhausted and I really didn't want to, but I don't know how many more lovely days like this we'll have, so we headed out. We found these gorgeous blooming roses sticking out of a random hedge. I was reminded yet again that I can find beauty anywhere, even at a time when the light is fading. Today I am thankful for flowers that bloom in autumn, and enough afternoon light to walk by. #walkthankful #bloomwhereyouareplanted #backyardwondering #natureandphilosophy
Taking part in the @fit2bstudio walking challenge today by purposefully walking 1.5 miles to see a client in Jersey City. I'm thankful for so many things today: 1) That I live in an incredible walking city with gorgeous views of NYC.🏙️ 2) the fabulous fall weather and foliage 🍁- couldn't have asked for a better day. 3) My Merrell Glove 4 Trail Runner shoes for #barefoot walking feel.👣 #walkthankful #fit2bwalking #gratitude #lovewhereyoulive #hoboken #jerseycity
