Toasted Ezekiel bread with avocado & tomatoes

A kitchen of 11 of us girls this morning & we pretty much all had our toasted Ezekiel bread with avocado & tomatoes this morning !
But first … COFFEE

Girls’ Trip

I’m SO excited for our girls trip that my sister hosts every year!

We’ve all known each other for YEARS & when we get together, we have a BLAST!!

We’ve done this girls trip every year & it never disappoints!

Zella leggings and Nike Metcons

Some of you were asking me about these leggings .. the brand is Zella. One of the Christmas gifts from Mom & Dad!

And my son bought me these awesome Nike Metcons DSX Flyknit2 for Christmas ! I didn’t even know they existed -couldn’t have picked a better pair myself! So thoughtful & so generous!!

What matters at the end of the day…

At the end of the day, all that matters is that you stayed true to your life’s priorities & hopefully happiness is one of them
Agreed?!

New Fitness Routine for Pets

These 3 just turned another year older . Time’s flying! Why can’t pets live longer?

We’ve committed to a new fitness routine for them More walks! It’s important for OUR gut health to get outside more often anyway

New Hair Cut

I know it may not look any different to you, but I got my hair cut shorter than I’ve ever had it in YEARS! It was a longggg over due change !! I think I like it better but regardless, just needed a little CHANGE.

If you’re a HUGE creature of habit like me & afraid to try a color, a cut, lashes, a spray tan, etc, I hope this post inspires you to get out of your same ‘ol, same ‘ol and try something new for yourself!

Skinny Tan

Just thought I’d share this because I’ve been asked…

I go to a local place (spray tan bar) to be spray tanned about once a week, but when I need a touch up, I’ve been using this product from Amazon. I like that it’s a mousse vs a spray but you still need to use a glove & mit to put it on. In my opinion, it doesn’t smell or feel sticky. If any gets on my clothes from sweaty workouts, it just washes right out

You can pursue the life you want

It was 65 in Toledo today?!

It was so nice to be outside! I remember our days of working in an office & we hardly saw the light of day because it was dark in the morning & dark after work . We’d see our son maybe around 5 or 6.. sometimes as late as 7. I once thought it had to be that way. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be that way as long as you have the belief you can pursue the life you want and the courage & perseverance to see it thru.

There are days where life is ALL off balance

What’s your go-to if you have just 30 minutes??

Today was not a typical Saturday bcuz it was alllllll about playing catchup with business! These last several days have been devoted to finalizing the last pieces of the move (we are % out FINALLY.. Matt says it’s official.. we’re hoarders ), projects & deliveries at our new house, closing on the house we moved out of, planning our Super Saturday, hosting my parents & celebrating my mom’s Birthday busy week! 

So I finally got to workout tonight & in less than 30minutes I busted out biceps, triceps & turbo!!

There are days where life is ALL off balance & that’s not only OK, the imbalance is actually *necessary* for growth because it forces you to fall forward to find your balance again.

Believe in yourself more than anyone!

I’m very familiar with judgement from people that don’t know me & I do my best to ignore whispers, comments & looks

I wear boots in warm weather .
I wear makeup when I workout .
I’m a former ballerina who lifts weights & does Crossfit .
I married my 12-year old crush .
I was able to have a baby against all odds . Built a multi million dollar fitness business on social media even though I’m NOT the fittest and I lack social skills

I’m saying this because I want you to take the chance even though everyone around you might be shaking their heads, judging or thinking… “good luck with THAT!”

Don’t let statistics or their opinions of you be the reason you don’t do what you want.

You only have one chance to give this life your best .

They aren’t walking in your shoes.

They don’t know your reasons or your drive.

Yes, be open minded, be smart, consider how your path will Impact your future , but take a chance as you might not get the chance again. It’s not a waste of time if you learn something .

Believe in yourself more than anyone!
