•Start each day with a grateful heart•
.

Someone asked me the other day, “how are you so motivated?” Haha well sweet friends there are definitely days where I don’t feel as motivated as I would like, but I also know if I don’t spend a slice of my day spending time with the Lord, all of the things I struggle with, all of the things I get to do in a day lack. I don’t feel as empowered to go throughout the day, and I just feel slow!
.
Know sweet friend that with the strength of the Lord, you can do everything; you really can. ❤️
.
Go get your workout in, go spend time with the Lord, and maybe even a Pug just for fun, and go love this beautiful Friday that He has given!

Is it weird that probably one of my favorite most memorable workouts was in this pool house?😂🤘🏻Probably but hey, it showed me something. 💁🏼‍♀️
.
Sometimes it’s easy to focus on things that you aren’t super proud of about yourself. Like yesterday when I shared with y’all my struggles with binging, stress, anxiety, loneliness, and fear. All of these things are apart of my life right now but they have encouraged me to really dig in and look at the SO MANY GOOD things in life.
.
One of those many good things would be the muscle growth that has happened in my legs over the past year and a half. Like, it’s kinda fun seeing that lil’ simple on the side of my thighs 💁🏼‍♀️I’m not telling you this to be proud, but to humbly encourage you that friend, there are SO MANY great things about you. There truly are! And if you need someone to tell you something awesome about yourself, girlfriend! I’m here for ya!
.
We are all changing at different rates-inside and outside. But all the changes that we make should reflect the beautiful creator we serve. They should show love to our creator by treating the body He gave us with care  because friend, He died for you! He loves you, and He wants the best for you ❤️

As much as I really want to say that the photo on the left is me right now, the photo on the right is where I’m at. Okay before you get any ideas, hear me out first: In BOTH of these pictures, there is SO much joy, growth, and smiles for days. For sure! Satan you can’t steal my joy so there it is! But the reason why I wish the photo on the left was right now, is because that’s where I was a year ago-and honestly, a year ago on that day, I pictured myself having abs today. If you can’t tell though, that didn’t quite happen.
.
What happened? As much as I’m nervous to admit it, I let stress, anxiety, fear, and sometimes even just laziness take over my life many times this past year. Which encouraged me to for some reason want to binge eat...a lot. And the list of what I would eat...yikes, it makes my stomach and soul hurt thinking about it.
.
Taking care of your body is such a gift. It’s progress, not perfection, it’s a journey, not a destination. That being said, this just happens to be where I’m at with my journey. Not where I would like to be, but y’all, through this God continues to teach me and show me that I DON’T have to give in to eating my guts out to try to hide from fear, anxiety and stress. Food will never satisfy me. Never!
.
Thankfully this picture on the right is NOT going to stay this way. And I know it won’t, because I’ve got a tribe of accountability girls that keep me in check and know when I’m struggling. I’ve got the strength of Jesus which is mightier than any 🍩🥞🍫🍦🍕or ANYTHING for that matter. Thankfully y’all, I haven’t binged in 5 days now and I’m DETERMINED to get to 7, and then 14, 21, 40, and NEVER AGAIN.
.
So what about you? Do you feel me? Do you have struggles with binging or just need a community of encouragers? I’m HERE for you sweet friend. If you want to be apart of this, if you want to defeat things in your life like binge eating, let me know by dropping your fav food emoji below 🍕🍔💕💁🏼‍♀️💪🏻

When I woke up this morning satan was trying to do some serious lurking. “Kylie you’re not cared about.” “Kylie I want to let this bother you.” “Kylie you know you want to see this and that.”
.
While I totally felt these lies creeping in, and it was tough, I FOUGHT. Over and over again I just prayed, “God my joy does not need to be stolen. No it doesn’t!”
.
I quickly opened my Bible and started fighting. I read with an almost “I’m gonna get you satan!” mindset. Haha yeah, NOT TODAY SATAN!
.
I’m SO THANKFUL Jesus that you fought for me-And YOU; friends, HE FIGHTS FOR YOU! Whatever lies may be trying to lurk in your heart today sweet friend, know this truth: {Lies f l e e in the presence of truth.] @lysaterkeurst
.
KEEP fighting sweet friend, open the word, breathe, smile, talk out loud, tell yourself OUTLOUD, “you’re AMAZING!” You truly are too, and if no one has told you that yet, I’m right here telling you, right now, that you ARE 💕

“So what’s your favorite part about being a teacher?”....Is it safe to say summer with my teacher friends? 😂
.
Haha y’all this is about 25% true (I promise I love my job 🤗) but seriously, God was so vividly reminding me and telling me today, how much of a gift not only summer is, but friendship. 💕
.
Y’all know that once in awhile we know we should reach out when we’re feeling lonely but sometimes we just don’t. And I was definitely in that rut this past weekend, but what was so absolutely amazing today, was God just poured friends into me. I had a sweet friend call me, sweet texts, time with these teacher babes, encouragement from my challenge babes-just wow. God showed up in such cool ways, and holy cow, my heart has just been exploding with joy and thankfulness for these friendships 💕
.
And you know what else is amazing? All of the sweet friends that I talked to today, all talked together with me about how thankful they are to be apart of learning how to take care of the temple they have been given and the community that we have together through literally sweating each day and encouraging one another. We talked about how sweating every day has not only become apart of our daily routine, but it has changed us for the better 💛Maybe that doesn’t make your heart beat out of your chest but it certainly does for me 🙆🏼‍♀️😍😍
.
Thank you so much Jesus for sweet friends ❤️And for all the convos that these babes and I had today about our workouts 😆Seriously we talked about that 75% of the time 😁💪🏻

Heyo Tuesday 👋🏻
.
Do y’all have just one thing you just don’t like? One food? One daily task? Or maybe you have something else to fill in the blank💁🏼‍♀️This morning when I had a moment where I was completely focused on how much I despised the one thing I was doing. It wasn’t my workout in its entirety, it was ONE MOVE: they’re called 1/2 Turkish Getups w/ a hip raise, push up and then flip it over and do it again...🤪 I know that made no sense so just take a look at it 👆🏻➡️haha
.
While I was telling myself how much I absolutely despised this move, I caught myself. I paused and asked, “Kylie, why do you despise this move so much?” All that came to mind was just the pure fact that is it h a r d. But it wasn’t the end of the world.
.
Y’all we all have thing sin our life that we just despise doing. We do! Whatever that may be, I encourage you to A) get that thing over with right away each day so it’s DONE! B) Change your mindset. It’s absolutely amazing how much faster and more enjoyable those 1/2 Turkish Getups etc. haha went when I just decided that this isn’t THAT BAD. I CAN do this.
.
You can get through the hard stuff that you may not like too friend. You really can👊🏻Go get that stuff out of the way first and go kick Tuesday in the butt, you 🤘🏻

Because ombré T-shirt’s are totally a thing right?💁🏼‍♀️😂
.
Before I really started zoning in on my health and fitness journey and seriously deciding to make a change, any workout that I would do I decided wasn’t really a workout unless I sweated profusely. Well that didn’t really work because a) I’m a Miller so I sweat a lot in the first place, and 2) I definitely wasn’t getting anywhere with the goals I tried over and over again to achieve.
.
I would run, and run, and run. Do the same lifting routine from high school. Do a few crunches and leg raises and thought, “this ‘ill give me abs right?” Ha! Negative. And if I workout ice cream is totally okay to eat every other night right? Ha! You guessed it, another: negative.
.
While I still love running and totally still love ice cream, something I love knowing now with any program that I choose (I’ve got like a gazillion to choose from-PRAISES🙌🏻) I may or may not sweat like a pig every day, but  I WILL see results. Adding in balancing nutrition with eating things that make me feel better inside and look better outside (acne is sooo much better!) will get me to my results. I am a witness that it can happen! I have seen it with my own two eyeballs! But the most important thing to this realization, was the support and encouragement that I had to get me to the results I wanted and am still striving for; my challenge group girls. Seriously dhey da best ✊🏻😍
.
Wasn’t this what we were created to do in the first place people? Work + eating well + encouragement? I mean really!! You don’t need a fad diet, to cut out carbs, a pill, you fill in the blank. All you need is a shirt to sweat in, so many good foods to fuel yourself with, and accountability and encouragement 🎉🤘🏻💪🏻🤗And who knows, maybe you’ll be the one to make ombré T-shirt’s a real thing in all stores everywhere 🤓💁🏼‍♀️You Just NEVER KNOW.
.
Come take the leap with us sweet friend! Do what you were made to do and let’s do it together 💁🏼‍♀️😄🤘🏻💪🏻

“I’m doin’ fine enough to know that everyone’s a little broken. Fine enough to know that hearts are best when they’re wide open. I’ve still got fear inside of me, I’m not okay, but I’m gonna be.” [ @laurenalaina ]
.
Not to sound like cliche and be cheesy in using these lyrics, but I do know that these lyrics speak exactly to what I feel, what I felt a lot this weekend, and what I struggle with off and on in daily life.
.
Somedays I am fine. I find joy in the daily tasks that I have to do. I find joy in taking care of the temple that He has given me by fueling it well and taking 30 minutes to see what it can do. I find joy in reading a book or watching Netflix. I take joy in the phase of life that I’m in. But some days I’m just not fine.
.
There are days (yesterday being one of them) where all the things that I know are good for me, that I DO love doing and feel joyful about, I just struggle to do. People tell me I work a lot but then when I try to just be, my mind takes over (stinkin’ satan) and all the things that I find joy in, I struggle to see why I found joy in it in the first place.
.
All I know, (and I preach this to myself too) is there probably will be more days like yesterday, but I don’t want days like yesterday to consume my life. I don’t want to let joy be stolen from me because that’s not what God wants for me, or for you. He wants the VERY best for us. He wants us to reach out to people. He wants us to be fearless. He wants us to know that we are NOT alone. Which can be one of the hardest things when you’re single.
.
He wants us to turn to Him sweet friends-the question is, will we do it? Yesterday I definitely didn’t but from today on, I’m going to do my best to turn to Him. I want to dead sprint to Him. I don’t want to turn to self-piety, eating all the carbs, Netflix, and whatever else I may be choosing to be turning to. I w a n t HIM.
.
So, in the end, today; I’m doin fine.

All of have things that make up who we are. We have things that we love about ourselves, and things that we struggle with about ourselves. We have had situations in life where we felt like the only person in a crowded room, and where we felt completed apart of the crowded room.
.
There are times in life (and if you are single or were at one point you pry have felt this💁🏼‍♀️) when I have felt set aside. And it still happens, but yet those situations are when God was and continues to allow me to further see His humility and perfect plan.
.
The truth of the matter though sweet friend, is that God is using you for something big-and specifically for Y O U. You may not know it, but today He’s using every piece of you, every situation that you encounter, every job/to-do that you have, to draw you closer to Him.
.
You are NOT forgotten, you are NOT just another person, Y O U are HIS. You are set apart.

Besides the fact that this quiche, little bowl of seasonal fruit, coffee and sweet company that went with this adorable brunch was so wonderful, the other fact that goes with this picture is that on this day I was 23% of the American people that day (and most days) to consume the needed amount of fruits and veggies...DID YOU CATCH THAT? Only 23% of Americans are getting the required fruits and veggies in their diet each day...23%.
.
When I read this statistic in the Spokesmen last week (since apparently June was national fruit and veggie month 💁🏼‍♀️🍋🥦) my heart dropped. Maybe this stat doesn’t have the same affect on you, but something has to change...
.
Until I really started digging into the nutrition aspect of my journey, I never truly realized how essential it is to fill your body with food that allows you to work, and be the best you can be throughout the day. Carbs with a side lettuce salad, one apple a day, and a few carrots at lunch with all the m&ms for my late night snack, were all items that I used to daily consume. None of these items are bad, heck no! But none of them in how I was using them, were really doing me any good. I was never seeing results, and I felt draggy most of the time.
.
That draggy feeling and sick of never seeing results, finally pushed me to look into learning about foods that do fuel me, and that do make me feel better. Guess what most of them were? You got it; fruits and 🍓🥒
.
Thank goodness for God changing my mindset about food. Thank goodness for the community of encouragement and learning that I get to be apart of that has taught me how to implement nutrition better into my life.
.
How’s your nutrition? Are you one of the 23, or is it time to make a change?
.
.
Annnnnd one more thing: Of course I still eat m&ms, just in moderation and not every night 💁🏼‍♀️

A little over a year ago I set a goal that I wanted to have abs. I had the drive, I had the means, I had the accountability and sweet encouragement. But then fear, anxiety, stress, and discouragement crept in. I let satan have a foothold on me that he really dug into and I’m sure throughly enjoyed.
.
Stress, anxiety, fear, we all experience it at points in our life. Some days are better than others, and TODAY is NEVER Satan’s day. Not for YOU and not for me. Saying that out loud is literally one of the best things that you can do when you feel stress, anxiety and fear try to creep in.
.
So the abs? Well, are they there? NOT YET! Am I sure I won’t have days where I won’t struggle? Heck no! Y’all I know satan is going to keep trying really hard to use fear, stress and anxiety to get me to binge eat, to keep me from my goal, and most importantly, to keep me from taking care of the amazing temple Christ has given to me AND  y o u. DON’T LET him. Just tell him to go burn in the pit of sulfur-cause that IS where he is going 🙌🏻😆
.
Keep striving towards your goals sweet friend. AND KNOW, that you are made to be fearless in Christ.

The totally cliche saying of, “you never know unless you try,” is totally true. I never quite knew how true it was until I actually decided to try x, y and z...
.
In February of 2017, I decided to try something. I decided that I was DONE feeling crappy about my image. I was DONE huffing and puffing up stairs at school. I was DONE feeling like I couldn’t even throw a hay bale (yeah as a farm girl I felt pretty dumb not being able to throw a bale 😒). I was DONE. And I wasn’t about to look for a quick fix either. I knew that it was going to take hard, dedicated, disciplined work. It was going to take mixing workouts and nutrition and alllll the strength of Jesus 💪🏻🙏🏻🥑
.
So where did I find that? Praise the Lord I found EXACTLY what I was looking for in 30 min. workouts and nutrition that still allowed me to eat pizza on a Friday night and have ice cream on Sunday afternoon. And guess what? It stuck, and I still do this today.
.
What’s the added bonus though/other “you don’t know until you try,” part of this though? Well 4 months later I decided I WANTED to encourage and help others find this same simple lifestyle. I WANTED to let others know that life is totally possible through the simplicity of balanced nutrition and exercise. I WANTED (and this is still my soul, deepest desire) people to see that the body that they have is b e a u t i f u l inside and outside all because of what Christ has done for us💕 He sacrificed His body for us, so how can we not take care of the awesome one He gave us?!
.
If you WANT a change, if you are DONE feeling the way maybe you do. I’m here for you. I WANT to join ranks with you; through the struggles and joys. And if you want to join me in helping and encouraging others to do the same TODAY is the day to do so. The babes and I have a sneak peak going on RIGHT NOW & THIS WEEK, and I would LOVE to have you 💕😆You truly never know until you try. From this adventure so far, I’m so glad I tried. 🤘🏻💛

Who has adult life figured out?! Because I can definitely tell you who doesn’t...this girl 🙋🏼‍♀️and I am totally, whole-heartedly fine with this fact. 💁🏼‍♀️
.
In my short amount of time that I’ve been an “adult” I’ve noticed something about myself and maybe you have noticed this about yourself too. Our culture, our attitudes, want adult life to be so difficult. Don’t get me wrong, adulting is tough but have you ever caught yourself or the person your talking to answer you with, “(long sign, with a pity laugh) I’m super busy, just trying to stay afloat!” Or something like that? Okay maybe you have no clue what I’m talking about, but hear me out: Adult life DOESN’T have to be that bad! It really doesn’t! Yes it can get super mundane paying bills, exercising every day, grocery shopping, going to work every day, somedays even for me looking like a human being, you name it! But guess what? Life is too short to not be: joyful + silly + happy + adventurous + fantastic + peaceful + _____!
.
You have an incredibly FANTASTIC life sweet friend, and I’m not saying that every day is going to feel that way, but when we decide to answer those, “how are you?” conversations with, “I’m fantastic!” you’ll notice how much better life is; how awesome life really is 😆 If life isn’t feeling awesome, maybe that means you add some lemons to your water, read a book before bed, schedule a girls night once a week, use your china you seldom use anyway for dinner one night. Whatever it takes sweet friend, make each day fantastic. God didn’t give you this phase of life to grunt around, He gave it to you because He has absolutely amazing things in store for you 💕🍋💛

We have so much to be thankful for and some days we don’t even know it. It can be easy to focus on the harder things-to discuss the difficulties at work, stresses at home, relationships that are broken, and other tough things of life. It can be easy to lean towards our sinful ways-being greedy, speaking untruthfully to others and ourselves, and giving in to evil desires. Yet it’s so much sweeter when we give in to letting Christ renew our lives and give us n e w life 🌱
.
Lately I feel like there are times when I so easily give in to sin. Saying a few unneeded words here, over indulging on food, acting like I’m better, being prideful over there, and looking more at the things of this world that drag me down, than remembering, knowing, that Christ wants me to focus on things that are a b o v e.
.
You and I are given one life, and in this one life, I want to be thankful. I want to be thankful for people, for struggles, for the Bible, for early mornings, for long days, for students, and the list goes on. I want to be more kind, more patient, more humble, more gentle-I want to live renewed🌾 .

Don’t you dare ever think that you’re story isn’t awesome-if you don’t think it is, I’m here to tell you that it IS.
.
If you were to ask me 5 years ago where I thought I would be I definitely would not have guessed here. I definitely wouldn’t have guessed that I would still be single, that I’d be living on the other side of the state of Iowa, that I would start an ag program, that I would have a truck for a year, get a bug, become inspired by health and fitness, become a coach, have a messed up tailbone, have a little Pug named Maggie, learn to love coffee, and find out that I could actually cook.
.
Okay, all these things may not be that cool, and seriously that’s not really my point. Sometimes we have plans and they do happen, and sometimes we can plan like crazy and it doesn’t turn out at all like you would think. And you know what? THANK THE LORD for that, because HIS PLAN is always better anyway!
.
I want you to know that whatever your life looks like, however your story has been working, God has an absolute plan and purpose with you. He is using your story, your life circumstances, your passions, your pains, your joys, your jobs, all to bring Him glory. As for my story, there’s a little sweat, a few tears, but a lot of joy-all through my love for agriculture and working to incorporate that passion through health and fitness. Definitely something I never would have dreamed, but it’s part of my story and I’m SO THANKFUL for it.
.
Love your story sweet friend, and live it out to the fullest 💕

Wonderin’ where on earth this hot Iowa Saturday is going?!
.
How is it July already tomorrow?! As much as I’m sad about the month already almost being over, I have to reflect a little bit because y’all, this past month was pretty crazy awesome and involved being what feels like everywhere 💁🏼‍♀️
.
First of all, never in my wildest dreams did I think I would get the chance to go (basically on vacation) with 7 other amazing women to dream up goals and dreams through health and fitness. Like, wow, that was crazy awesome. Secondly, as if it weren’t an honor enough to start an ag program 3 years ago (how on earth am I going to be starting year 4?!), it was such an incredible honor to be chosen as the young outstanding teacher of my district. Holy cow, so thankful and so blessed. And I can’t forget about the time I was able to spend with some of my favorite kiddos getting amped up for another year of FFA. So awesome.
.
But for all of this my friends, God gets the glory. None of this is purely me-not at all. It’s hard to share your heart when God is truly the only one that fully sees it, but y’all, Jesus is who all this should point to. My dreams, my goals (things that were reached this past month and in the future) are all His. I’m so thankful for the crazy fun this past month, for the many blessings, and I think it’s safe to say that I’m looking forward to growing more this July 💪🏻🇺🇸
.
Do you have goals? Big dreams? Community? Are you wondering how you are going to reach them? Girlfriend, if we join together, live in a way that first honors the Lord and practice caring for the temples that He’s given us through quick workouts, balanced eating, loving farmers, accountability and Christ-centered encouragement, there’s a place for you here sweet friend 💕💪🏻🥗🍔
