Communication. Caring. Compassion. Community. Culture. Conducting. /// Some of the best words and they all have one center....people. ❤️ people! It's why we are here. Doesn't matter how much we learn, the first priority is making those singers (and really everyone you come into contact with) know that you care. #lifegoal #sharelove

Meal prep can be so simple.....if you plan accordingly. It's a multiday planning thing for us.....Friday we make a calendar and grocery list, Saturday we get the food, Sunday we cook and plate for about 2 hours. So worth it to have a clean kitchen, healthy food, and budget awesomeness all week. Pro tip: don't put the dressing on the salad until you eat it and the greens will stay fresh all week! #mealprep #healthyonabudget

Focus. It makes such a huge difference. I was a wobbly mess thinking about everything else BUT this single leg deadlift. As soon as I focused on the moment, balance happened! 💥 life lesson! Day 40/60 ✅ #focus #nowayimgainingcollegeweight #becomingdrb

Doesn't look like much, but it doesn't lack flavor! Kale and spinach enchiladas! And, because Sunday was meal prep day, it went from fridge to delicious in under a minute! #whatveganseat #becomingdrb

When music quotes apply to more than music ❤️Clarity. The first of the 6 "high performance habits" in the new book I'm "reading"while running... knowing this chapter was coming today pushed me out the door when I didn't really want to run. Thank you @brendonburchard 🤓#highperformance #marathoner #becomingdrb

It's ok to have dinner at 4pm, right? I just can't wait any longer to eat this!!! This may be my fav meal prep to date: quick, easy, delish! #whatveganseat #classallday #becomingdrb
Blurry on purpose....because life moves fast....don't let it be a blur of a memory because you forget to enjoy the moment! Today I decided to ignore my watch and do my assigned mile repeats by feel. I made the choice to only think about THAT mile, focusing on the exact task at hand. You know what happened? Goals were crushed (check out my story for the proof)! What a great reminder, focus on the task at hand, the people around you, live present. #lifegoal #bqorbust #marathoner

Learning from Ezra's model....we cannot share what we do not know. What an "ah ha" moment! Yes, we put in the time to learn material....whatever that may be for you....but we must LIVE IT and then we can loan it! I need to keep track of this quote....so applicable right now and forever as I sit here reading hundreds of pages, practicing pounds of music, and listening to hours of new material. I. Any believe how much has been learned already and there is so much left to learn! #teacherheart #sharejoy #becomingdrb

Trying so hard to straighten those legs! Holy smokes! Core engaged....time to run! #neverstopimproving #workoutwithaplan #instaaccountability
Loving this meal prep success. Spent two hours cooking Sunday...that translates to healthy choices - and lots and lots of saved $$ - all week as I walk by every imaginable type of restaurant on my daily walks around classes. This one has been a fav....I will definitely make it again! #whatveganseat #becomingdrb

Doing lots of reading and writing today for this DMA thing and just needed to take a second and remember the "why" - because I want to be the very best possible version in order to lead these ladies and impact lives through the experience and joy associated with choral music! Yup! Ok, back to reading/writing! Photo cred @danbiggerstaff #becomingdrb #knowyourwhy

Ten miler done right at goal past AFTER rocking day 31/60 in the gym. Core engagers, like this set of side dip/twists, combined with other cool moves from today's strength program, always set me up for run success. I sound like a broken record, but seriously......so amazed with correlation of lifting and running progress! #runnerswholift #newtolifting

Tuesday's are the busiest yet most fun day of classes!! 8:30am to 8:30 solid and I love it! But I must fuel right to keep my brain (and body) going. I've already had dinner, so a tiny salad with hearts of palm sound like a great second dinner to me! Have you tried these?? #becomingdrb #whatveganseat

Power lifting always flies by! Starts with a simple overhead press and progresses to a full clean press jerk....this was taken about 3/4 though the workout....I was having so much fun working hard! Feeling strong! Having a plan, a program, to stick to is really helping me stay on track.....it is also so fun to see the seconds fall off my run time as I build strength. Who knew? 😜Want to give it a try? Sept 11 I'm teaming up with some fabulous accountability partners and we can save a spot for you! Just let me know!!#runnerswholift #newtolifting

First FULL week as a DMA Student ✅ Successes: reading and prep was complete BEFORE every class.....friends were made, names were learned....and I still worked out every morning and stuck to my Marathon training plan. Now....to keep it up for 15 more weeks until winter break..... #itspossible #instaaccountability #isometricstrength

First day DMA classes are amazing but consuming all brain power!!! Good thing I meal prepped and packed delicious brain fuel! I will never underestimate the power of playing offense for yourself. Ex: I could have caved and went to grab a pizza...or vending machine nastiness....instead a protein and veggie packed deliciousness was waiting for me in the fridge between classes. #saynotocollegeweight #healthyandsmart #savedsomuchtimetoo

Back to school. Back to work. Back back back.....yup, I'm procrastinating reading a million pages for class tomorrow by posting a video of this morning's max strength workout, day 17/60. Preload the muscle with body weight work for a minute then add the heaviest weight you can for 8 reps. Ex: 1 min lat pull downs then 8 max weight pull-overs. Wish I could crank out one more gym session right now....no no no, no more procrastinating....back to reading!!!! #becomingdrb #stillgettingstrongereveryday

Tomorrow we begin a crazy adventure: living in two cities, as I pursue my DMA. We have so much fun together, always have, always will, this week especially as we set up the new condo. We are totally equipped and ready to rock this adventure! #becomingdrb #colorcodedcalendar #lotsofcommunication

How awesome is it that we can choose our energy!? This is not meant to be accusatory in any way, just a great reminder as the fall kicks off and everyone starts to make new friends..... choose joy, spread positivity, and live authentic, transparent, and true. #quote #benice

Perspective. Just heard this amazing story on a podcast and had to share!! It's all about perspective, everything! When you're on the flight and it's raining, you take off in the gray, dreariness and as you ascend it's bumpy and a little comfortable. Then, you suddenly appear in this blue clear sky. It was there all along, you just had to shift perspective. Traffic. Life. Work. Make the shift and choose joy! #wecandothis #lifeisawesome

Spoken by one of my fav authors and much needed today. Awareness that there is a massive "settle into a new condo" to do list and confidence that it will all get done, no sweat! Well, first we sweat, can't miss a workout! Lol!! #enjoyeverymoment

Finding excuses to do even more things together knowing that we are about to reside in different states...he rarely joins me for a strength session, so I didn't mind letting him use my heavy weights :) Day 6/60 was fun! 3 total body circuits repeated. #strongereveryday #strongertogether

Smiling even tho....this workout is tough AND there are boxes to pack....must prepare and be ready to kick butt before fall classes begin and the road to Dr. B starts ....so no matter how long the to do list grows, there's still time for health and fitness! I think clearer when my body is well fueled and had a chance to sweat. #maketimeforwhatmatters

Thursday's are for intentional thought time. Quiet. Candle. Dreaming. ////Today, I spent most of the time thinking about @risechorales ....
