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…

Do all these ‘Fit Moms’ have fit kids too?

I see an awful lot of ‘fit moms’ in my line of work. Myself being one of them.  I follow quite a few ‘fit moms’ on Instagram and here on WordPress. I see lots of pictures of moms working out, eating right, and doing their best to stay healthy. I am just curious, does this…

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…

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…

#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….

Can I feed my 2 month old Ice Cream?!

I recently joined a ‘stay at home mom’ group on Facebook and wow have my eyes been opened! I guess I thought the rest of the world of moms had the same schedule, opinions, and household set up as me. I also like to believe that children are all playing outside, growing gardens, eating dirt,…

Set the Tone Today

Having a powerful, useful, hardworking Monday can help set the tone for the rest of the week. Be that girl who shines today and not the one in her Monday outfit complaining about the week ahead. Think of all you can accomplish this week, all you can change, all you can do to get closer…

Gaining Wellness

If I could just go out and see that every person knows how great it feels to be healthy and eat real food, I would. If I could help every obese child take their lives back, I would. If I could talk to each person with asthma and tell them that steroids are not a…

Limitless

Oh, what an adventurous two weeks it has been! Two weeks full of hiking, family, nature, and thinking time. Time to reset and refresh. Time to set some goals and reflect on life.  My daughter (who is 2) and I have been doing a lot of hiking these past two weeks and it has given…
