This year is one for the books.

It’s been a day or two (or twenty) since I have had to chance to write! I began school to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and it seems that every spare minute I have is going to reading, watching class, or doing assignments. My nose has been stuffed in books for a month and there…

There Is No Such Thing As Ready

“It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.” Now is the only time…

Gymtimidation

That moment when you walk into the gym see all the ‘fit’ people and think maybe you don’t belong here. You begin to wonder if you can even pick up a dumbbell and who is going to be watching you try. Are they going to make fun of me if I don’t lift the right…

Straddling the Edge of a Star

I’m Alive! I am still here, back from a great vacation in the mountains. The past 2 weeks have been a whirlwind! I feel like it has only been 2 days! We had Christmas in Oklahoma, then traveled to Wyoming the next day (driving 900 miles with a toddler and a newborn is an adventure…

Spot Fat Reduction, Is It Possible?

“Its a beautiful thing to have lungs that allow you to breathe air and legs that allow you to climb mountains, and it’s a shame that sometimes we don’t realize that that’s enough” The last 4 weeks have flown by! It is hard to imagine that my baby is almost a month old! Throughout this…

Carbs are so last season (or are they)?!

In a world where there is a new, latest, greatest diet plan around every corner it is hard to decipher what really works and what is just a scam. I have put together my opinion of a few ‘diets’ for you all. Whole 30: The whole 30 is designed to be a 30 day nutrition…

Fitness Update at 37 Weeks Pregnant!

So here it is! I will be 37 weeks pregnant on Friday! I am so ready to meet our little one I can hardly stand it. The nursery is ready, the hospital bag is packed, and the baby clothes are all cleaned. My husband is ready and so is our toddler (or at least she…

#Goaldigger

‘I figure if a girl wants to be a legend she should just go ahead and be one’ -Calamity Jane And a legend is just what I intend on being. A legendary mom. A legendary farm wife. A legendary trainer. A legendary version of me. October is ‘fall’-ing into place and must say I am…

Success is Consistent

‘Success comes from what you do consistently’ Overnight is not where most find success. They find it after years of long, hard work. They find it after a passion has been ignited inside of them and go chase it. They find success after many bumps, bruises, and blisters. However, sometimes I think working towards the…

Start Now

As summer begins to wind down, it is easy to slip into a lazier routine for a lot of people. Fall is in the air, baking is a go to activity, the gym is almost empty this time of year, and the ‘Jan. 1st I will begin again’ is too close for comfort. Keep going….

I am Powerful

I woke up this morning with a goal of being motivated. A goal of crushing this day. Running the day instead of it running me. I was ready to really get after myself. By 5:45 AM I was awake with a ¬†screaming baby, next came the dog messing on the floor, and then my husband…

A little Fitness Update

It has been awhile since I have talked to you all about fitness. I feel like I started this blog to talk about fitness and it has gone in the direction of nutrition, mom life, farm life, and adventuring! Which, by the way, I am totally ok with since that is my life. But I…
