Welp, I guess you know it was a tough workout when you have to take your Recover shake out into freezing temps to stop sweating 😂. #humblingexperience (I got this cool down idea from a rockstar girl on my team who did this earlier in the week! #lovemytribe )
I think half of the sweat was from my brain burning calories while it figured out some of those moves!🤓😂
I did go into this for the mental challenge above everything else, so I guess today I got what I asked for!👍🏻😆
Today’s lesson: be careful what you wish for!🤣... Or: Take the challenge and surprise yourself at the hard ish you can do!🙌🏻
I learned both today...you can choose which one works for ya🤣
Kidding aside, I am starting to come ALIVE with this program!
Head over to my IG stories for clips from today’s #legdayworkout !!!
Day 5 workout is in the books!
Now it’s time for my favorite part of this journey...eat, eat, eat!🙌🏻

When I first heard about this new #athomefitness program that I’m doing, I was in the middle of struggling through a tough season.
Nothing was wrong in my life, but I just couldn’t shake the low mood I was feeling.
I trudged through most of the Fall just feeling disinterested and meh.😐
I was in the middle of that when this new program was announced.
When I watched the sneak peek video, I knew it was exactly what I needed.
How I felt this Fall was similar to how I felt when I first too one of my hubby @former_fat_guy ‘s dusty workout dvds off the shelf and popped it in.
I felt like somewhere along the way of taking care of everyone else, I had lost touch with myself.
So far, this program has been a challenge, and 99% of the challenge is mental!
To top it off, today was #cardioday .😩
I love/hate cardio.
Hate the entire workout...love that feeling after.
This pic right here is the after 😂.
I went into the workout dragging my feet and almost whining about it.
Ok...I actually did whine🤣
To help me get through, I put on a @stevenfurtick sermon...I know, weird that I listen to sermons while I workout, but it gets my mind in the zone!🙏🏻
Anyways, about 4 minutes into the sermon, Steven said this: “Nothing changes until I do.”
Annnnnndddd...cue my tears.
They just started pouring.😭
It brought me back to when I started this journey years ago...alone in my living room, day after day, for 90 days.
I’m just like everyone else when it comes to bettering my life.
I love the idea of my circumstances changing, but I’m not too keen on being the one that has to change. 😵
Change is freaking hard!
It’s a battle!
But it’s worth every single inch of the fight!
It’s the only way to beat the “meh!”
And, it hurts so good!
The up side to me making such a big deal in my head about today’s workout is it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be! (See how I found that #silverlining )👍🏻
Head over to my IG stories to see some of the moves!
Like, comment, or message me if you’d like more info in joining me on this journey to a better self!❤️

Believing this ☝🏻is one of my biggest struggles.
When I see other people doing amazing things, my reactive thought is “I wish I could do that!” .
Setting goals, being the leader of my own destiny, believing in myself, going for those big dreams in my heart are things I force myself to do.
And most of the time, even when I’m in full “go for it” mode, I’m still in a constant inner battle with self-doubt. .
Coaching has helped me come a long way from where I was.
I used to give into the self-doubt, choosing my tiny little comfort zone over facing my fears of failure and rejection.
But I’ve learned that although my comfort zone is quite comfy in the moment...over time it is suffocating. 🤐 .
When I listen to my kids go on about their hopes and dreams for their lives, it reminds me of how when I was their age I knew exactly what was put on my heart for my own life.❤️ .
A teammate and dear friend of mine recently suggested I read “The Alchemist,” by Paulo Coelho.
It’s kind of a weird read.
When the audible started to play the other night, I was like “what the heck is this book about?!” 🤣
But I trust my friend, so I kept listening.
I’m about halfway in, and it’s exactly what I needed for personal development right now!
I never ever told my friend what I’ve been struggling with...something just made her recommend it to me.
Isn’t it crazy when that happens?! .
If you’re searching to reconnect with your dreams and purpose, I highly recommend this book!🤓 .
It’s never too late to start.👊🏻
It does not matter what you did yesterday, last week, last month, or last year.👊🏻
It only matters what you do today!🙌🏻
. 🌟You can change the course of your life any time you choose!🌟 .
But that’s the thing.
It’s a CHOICE!
And only YOU can make it!❤️ I’m here if you want to go for it with me!😉 Happy Wednesday, friends!
I’m not even going to get started on a rant about the harmful chemicals contained in many common household cleaners, but I WILL go on a rant about how amazing the @younglivingeo Thieves household cleaner is. This is literally the only cleaner you will ever have to buy.
Toilet bowl ✔️
Floors ✔️ (and yes it’s safe on wood).
You can even use it in your dishwasher and to clean laundry✔️
On top of that, this cleaner is completely non-toxic and economical. It’s highly concentrated, so one capful can be diluted in a 16oz spray bottle with water. It comes out to be about 67 cents per bottle! Ask yourself how much money you’ve spent on the 15 different toxic cleaners you have in your cabinet. Ditch those bad boys and get yourself some Thieves. Oh, and did I mention it smells like Christmas and heaven?! This stuff is legit.
