It was a busy morning of bike riding and stretching. First I rode to cross country practice. After practice I took my niece on a bike ride to help her earn a merit badge. Then I had to ride home. I took the longer route home to avoid a very steep hill because my legs were done! Stretching out after the rides was such a blessing. #healthyandhappy #healthylifestyle #mm100 #summertimefun #overfiftyandfit #trusttheprocess #ibelieveinyou #youcandoanythingyouputyourmindto #youcandothistoo #whynotyou #stopyourexcuses #startwhereyoustand #myjourneymystory #makingmeapriority #makingeverydaycount #smallchangesbigresults #beachbodycoach #teacherfitness #youareworthit #fitfam

Tabata Tuesday! Making me a priority. Work is chaotic and home is in transition with another one of my humans heading to college. Stress and emotions are super high...this helps keep me sane! #fitover40 #hasfit #fitmom #igfitness #fitnessjourney #cardio #tabata #tabatatorch #makingmeapriority #hearthealth
Consuming a variety of colourful fruits and veggies provides our body with the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals necessary for optimal health and vitality. We know this right? But did you know... Red fruits and veggies help fight cancer and reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease. Think tomatoes, strawberries, watermelon, red peppers and beets. Orange and yellow fruits and vegetables promote eye health, improve immune function and also reduce the risk of heart disease. Think oranges, sweet potatoes, lemons, carrots and winter squash. Green Fruits and veggies also help boost the immune system, help with detoxification, provide vitamin K essential for blood and bone health. Think broccoli, brussels sprouts, asparagus, green apples and kale. Purple and blue fruits and vegetables help fight cancer, inflammation and provide anti-aging benefits. Think blue berries, eggplant, prune, figs and purple grapes. Brown and white fruits and vegetables keep bones strong, protect against certain cancers. Think cauliflower, garlic, onions, mushrooms and parsnips. But how does one consume a variety of in season fresh fruits and vegetables consistently? Consider shopping at your weekly farmers market for local fresh and in season produce. Variety is key here so challenge yourself to try one new fruit and vegetable each week and my personal favourite is to challenge myself to see how many different fruits or vegetables I can consume in a day. To accomplish this think smoothies, salads and stir-fry’s.
Today marks the start of a new chapter of my life. I’ve been a stay at home mom for 8 years now. It’s been 8 years of my kids being my number 1 priority and my own wants and needs taking a back seat. It’s been an amazing 8 years and I’m so happy that I had the opportunity to be home with them. But now they are both in school full time. And while I plan on getting a job soon, I am in absolutely no rush. Because for the first time in a long time, I get to focus on me! It’s a reentry of sorts for me. Reentry into the real world. Reentry into making myself a priority. Reentry into filling my cup. I plan to spend the time doing things that make me happy and fill my cup. Lots of adventuring, exploring, and relaxing. I’ll be paddle boarding in new places. Hiking and working towards going higher and longer. Getting back to running, biking, swimming, and possibly attempting a tri this fall (possibly). Getting back to finding my love of reading. Learning how to relax again (I even bought a travel hammock!)🤣. Today I drove up the Gross Reservoir and spent the afternoon paddle boarding in the beautiful, peaceful mountains! #skirtsports #skirtambassador #reentry #makingmeapriority #fillingmycup #kidfree #paddleboarding #grossreservoir
Well, my toe survived this short run and my left ankle is certainly feeling better. One week of no running has helped me heal. The new toe injury from yesterday’s power washer run in, will take a little longer. Upbeat Strength, Day 22, is history! Phase 2 is a challenge but I feel stronger each day! My weight increase for lifting is helping with toning and definition. At 53, I feel simply amazing! My energy level is higher now than six years ago. I decided to take control of my eating habits and slowly built in a fitness program that works for my busy life! It has been a great journey and I am so glad I took a chance on me. You can too because together we can get you going on a successful journey. #overfiftyandfit #healthyandhappy #healthylifestyle #mm100 #runningmama #runninggirl #runninggrandma #fitfam #beachbodycoach #teampassionatelyfit #bluecollarrunners #teacherfitness #whynotyou #stoptheexcuses #yougotthis #youcandoanythingyouputyourmindto #ibelieveinyou #youhavetobelieveinyourself #smallchangesbigresults #makingmeapriority #makingeverydaycount #trusttheprocess #trustandbelieve
The day is coming to an end but I still wanted to get my workout in. Day 21 is done and phase 2 has officially begun. I am very excited about the next phase. It is never too late to take control of your life. Making taking care of yourself a priority is a healthy choice. Exercise helps to clear my mind and reduce stress. #makingmeapriority #makingeverydaycount #healthyandhappy #healthylifestyle #yousreworthit #youcandoanythingyouputyourmindto #ibelieveinyou #youhavetobelieveinyourself #startwhereyoustand #whynotyou #youbelonghere #mm100 #teacherfitness #overfiftyandfit #fitfam #thebodyschieveswhatthemindbelieves #smallchangesbigresults #teampassionatelyfit

Thank goodness for this day! I am so glad that I get to focus on lengthening and stretching my tight muscles out.

Totally forgot to post my workout yesterday but not tonight. I have been trying to beat the weather, so my workout time changes based on when the rain is supposed to be here. Firewood first because it cannot be done in the rain. Workout when I can because it can be done anytime and anyplace! A 30 minute workout and it was a drenching one.💦💦💦💦💦 #picplaypost #healthyandhappy #healthylifestyle #overfiftyandfit #fitfam #teacherfitness #mm100 #makingmeapriority #makingeverydaycount #lovinglife #youcandoanythingyouputyourmindto #youareworthit #trusttheprocess #trustandbelieve #ibelieveinyou #youhavegottobelieveinyourself #smallchangesbigresults #beachbodycoach #teampassionatelyfit #youbelonghere #youarespecial #thebodyachieveswhatthemindbelieves
I am flooded with messages about Plexus and the products I use daily, and of course, naturally, people are curious and wondering about the price. Is it expensive? That all depends on your priorities. You see, for ME, personally, I was feeling terrible. Zero energy, crazy anxiety, horrible sleep and uncomfortable bloating, hormones out of whack, headaches, (the list goes on, but I won’t bore you) I just didn’t feel like me anymore. I was in and out of the Doctors offices trying to find answers. To be set free from 98% of the issues I was struggling with is life changing. So for ME, paying a little over $100 a month is NOTHING, and Id do whatever it took to be able to afford it. I haven’t drank energy drinks or soda in a year. I don’t crave for sugar and carbs anymore. I’m not reaching for that Twix at the grocery check out every time, and I actually crave water!! So thankful for this turn around. Thankful that I’m not still living that same life. I have grown so much the last 4 years, spiritually, mentally, emotionally- all of it. And honestly, the best is yet to come. #bettermom #betterwife #feelingmybest #beingmybest #makingmeapriority #naturally #holistically #changed #allglorygoestogod #freedomnevercomesfree #consitencyiseverything
Today will mark day 18 of consecutive days of work without a day off. Most will say that’s why I am tired. Sure, everyone needs time to recharge but I blame the inconsistent diet and lack of intentional exercise. So today I pack whole, natural foods for lunch and snacks and am gearing up for a workout before the family wakes up. Don’t worry, I have the weekend off and I am not going to keep this pace forever. Just part of life when you have BIG goals and live in a Rally town #NoExcuses #BackOnTrack #MakingMeAPriority #Spark #GetItGurl
Yes, that was me grunting through my squats and reverse lunges. Note to self do NOT eat an entire large hoagie/grinder/sub or sammy from Wiseguys, the local eatery, before working out. While the bread was outstanding, it was packed with lunch meats and heavy on the mayonnaise. I throughly enjoyed every bite but it was a little heavy. Oh, well live and learn! #mm100 #healthylifestyle #healthyandhappy #teacherfitness #makingmeapriority #makingeverydaycount #ibelieveinyou #youcandoanythingyouputyourmindto #youareworthit #lovinglife #smallchangesbigresults #whynotyou #stopyourexcuses #challengebringschange #changeisachallenge #overfiftyandfit #startwhereyoustand
Hot days like today definitely sabotages my appetite and since skipping meals for me causes late night snacking, I whipped up a smoothie for lunch, cool, refreshing and nourishing! I’m crushing hard on all things @Botanicahealth these days. This dynamic duo offers all of the health benefits I look for in a protein and greens powder. Also important is that it tastes great and leaves no aftertaste!
It’s been a little over 2 weeks since I started the Morning Meltdown 100 program and I’m feeling stronger, lighter, fitter and so much better!! It’s amazing when I’m consistent, get out of my own way and make me a priority how much better I feel. ❤️ You have to take care of you because no one else is going to do it for you! Day 17/100 Downbeat Strength.......love this one! My legs are on 🔥 🔥🔥 #takecareofyou #mm100 #morningmeltdown100 #downbeatstrength #feelinggreat #everymorning #upearly #makingmeapriority #weights #legs #workingonme
“How do you get it done?” Is one of the most common questions I get. It’s really simple. I make working out priority. Just as eating is a priority. If you want it, you make time for it. •• The wake up call at 4:15 am isn’t ideal but that’s when I can get it done. I then have to help get everyone else ready for the day! I am a working mom who does it all. Some days I feel like I can accomplish anything. Other days I am completely overwhelmed. Working out helps me to better deal with my crazy busy schedule! If you are looking to find a better balance in your life through a healthier lifestyle, reach out! •• • • • • #yesthiswasalltoday #busymom #workingmom #backtowork #earlymorningworkout #makingmeapriority #priorities #iamapriority #boymom #balancinglife #balancingact #beachday #preschool #soccer #healthylifestyle #noexcuses
