Time is measured by the height my baby brother grows in between times i’m back home to see him.
when i was home this weekend, i got a hold of a car so i could do some running around town. it was actually a blessing in disguise... a two hour drive was the only alone time i had all weekend (introverts, ya feel me?).
anyways, when i was cruising, don’t blink by kenny chesney came on the radio and it was the coolest moment.
midwest summer air.
music all the way up.
feel it in your soul.
i couldn’t help but think how ironic it was that that song came on in that exact moment. god has a sense of humor for sure.
don’t blink, life goes faster than you think...
i cannot believe the weekend is already over. why does it go by so fast? i'm always torn -- i want to spend some time 🕑 relaxing and actually resting since the week always seems so hectic and i'm exhausted, but then i want to spend time 🕒getting stuff done (that there's not time 🕓for through the week) or doing some enjoyable family activity.
it's the constant struggle. time 🕔just goes by too quickly.
sometimes you have such good intentions with a list of things you want/need to get done and then bam 💥weekend is over!
the real question is how do we get more time? 🕕i can't stay up later because the morning will be a bear and can't get up any earlier because i will be spent by midday. 🤷🏻♀️ time 🕖is never on my side. but i try to make the most of it and be as productive as i can, and then i crash hard when it's time 🕗to rest. 🤣
point of all of this ➡️i got my workout in but i don't know how. today came and went in the blink of an eye. this weekend was just too fast. can't we just get some more time? 🕘

Do you see your dreams like a light at the end of a tunnel? sometimes dreams can seem so far away, or even impossible at times. often these feelings stem from not knowing how to achieve them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
but what if we look at this a different way? instead of not knowing how, focus instead on why. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
is it for your health? 🌱
your well being? 🧘🏼♀️
your prosperity? 💰
your family? 👨👩👧👦
your legacy? ✨
our day to day life can often times get in the way of the things we want to focus our energy on.... if we let it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
for the longest time i tried to do it alone. i’ll be very honest. that doesn’t work. i had no one to keep me accountable when i didn’t want to get out of bed. i had no one to celebrate with when i was did something well. i had no one who could help me get passed a plateau. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
in short, it sucked. while your goals are about you, you need a tribe in order to get there. you know the phrase “it takes a village”? well, how about a group of badass peeps focused on crushing their own goals!?!
how empowering would that be?!!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
that, my friends, is what awaits in my accountability groups and those in our tribe of fit fierce mamas working on crushing their own coaching biz! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
dare to dream big, you beautiful mama! those dreams are closer than you even realize!
ready to take that first step? drop a dm for all the deets! 💌

if you are at all interested in anything that i have been using, now is the time to check it out for yourself! every purchase will even include a free gift card to target or amazon! 🙌
I’m at peace and yet somehow on fire. i guess that’s how i feel every time i’m working out. banging out some sets of full body dead ball workouts this monday morning. the one i’m using is 6kg but you can get a weight that’s suitable for you to give these exercises a try or even performing it without weights can be quite a challenge too. #shredandburn
Kohler triathlon: complete⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
finishing status: second in my age group.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
this picture sums up how i feel--kinda.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
i should be happy---and i did have a great time. i was first out of the water in the swim, and ahead on the bike. then it all went to c**p during the run. i didn’t have it—and i gave up the lead. i’ve been feeling kinda p****d at myself all day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
how could i do that? why wasn’t i good enough? is it because i don’t like running as much as i like biking and swimming? or did i not push myself hard enough? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
what’s up with all my negative self-talk? i coach other people on how not to do that! i’m the queen of glass half-full. and i am proud of myself. proud that i got my b**t out of bed at 5am on a sunday morning and went for it. but i can be better.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
so—i now have my eyes on a duathlon in september. i’ve googled “how to improve your run in 30 days” and have a plan to get better. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
so i say this to the woman in the green who passed me in today’s run: enjoy the victory. you earned it and you deserved to beat me—you were faster when it mattered. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
but don’t think it’s happening again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
