Instagram Inspiration!

  • The only reason I was able to lose weight, get fit and keep progressing was this. I had a reason and I didn't forget it. Hard workout? Yeah, many of them and each time I had an image in my mind of why I needed to get it done. It wasn't always perfect, energy is sometimes low, sugar cravings hit sometimes, vacations happen, celebrations come and go, but after it's all said and done, I have more days of workouts than without, more healthy meals than not. It's the long game that wins every time.

  • How do you reset yourself in such a noisy world? Reseting yourself in a very busy world is the best self-care I practice. ❤️❤️ It's not always easy being a mom and we can serve our families better if we are serving ourselves a bit also. Best part of being 💪🏻 fit over 40...being able to do what I love, ride my horse. 🐎 Going to the barn takes me out of the world of busy schedules, never-ending to-do lists and totally resets me. When I ride alone, I put my earbuds in (loving these new 👍🏻 TOTALLY wireless Sudio earbuds that don't fall out while riding!) and listen to my "barn playlist". Get your favorite @Sudio Niva earbuds 15% off with FITFOUNDME code. 🎉

  • Horses are safe and sound in their stalls. Windows were opened for a little while this morning to give them some fresh air. Prayers for all affected by the Hurricane Florence, especially at the coast. .

  • Who remembers growing up with a daddy who taught you how to fish, how to mow the grass, how to grow a garden and the list goes on. Now, it warms my heart that my Daddy is teaching his 3rd generation to fish and one day will have them in his garden beside him pulling those weeds and picking the vegetables. .

  • Healthy, delicious dinner in about 25 minutes! Dinner used to mean fancy casseroles, heavy recipes - you know the ones, the complicated recipes that had loads of ingredients and calories. Or, it was fast food because we didn't have time to wait for me to cook the 2 hour dinner. Now, it's simple, clean, whole food meals...and they taste better than those 2 hour dinners used to! Healthy can be faster than fast food. What did I do tonight? I quickly chopped vegetables, a little EVOO, salt and pepper, roasted in the toaster oven at 450 for about 10 min, broiled for 5 min. Chicken had a little EVOO, salt, pepper and Montreal Chicken seasoning. Air fried for 15 min. Served with fresh Basil Pesto from Costco. Minimal clean-up to top it off. BTW - even the teenagers like the roasted veggies!

My journey began in 2012 when I made the choice not to relinquish my inner youthful feeling into the stereotypical average middle aged overweight woman. I strongly believe if you want to lose weight and keep it off, you have to discover your “why”. Your “why” will be the motivation it takes to stick with a new healthy way of living.

Stick around. Let’s do this together. Day by day. Meal by meal. Workout by workout…
