Epitome of laziness.... unless I literally wash and pluck these grapes off of every dang stem and put them in a storage container, they will sit and rot in my fridge. Every. Single. Time. πŸ˜’ My kids will be too lazy.... My husband will be too lazy.... and I will be too lazy to wash a few off at a time when we want them. πŸ˜‚πŸ‡ You got any lazy food confessions?? Tell me.... I feel exposed. 😜

Totally un-fitness related, BUT I'm a person outside of that, right? 😜 Anyway, I'm SUPER excited about this. My husband and I have always tried to be frugal. He has taught Dave Ramsey Financial Peace classes in the past, so we were very fortunate to begin our marriage 17 years ago with the Baby Steps in place. But with time (and kids), we got lazy. Didn't go off the rails by any means (still super mindful of spending, carry no credit card debt, etc), but we got a whole lot more lax. He will be needing a car replacement very soon, so we are in full intensity attacking our van balance. I made this today to put on our fridge so that the kids can "see" our progress as well. Who knew you could find a Honda Odyssey coloring page online? Lol!! It's never too early to start teaching them this, and this way they can really grasp what we're doing when we skip going out to eat or make our own pizza instead of ordering out! .

> Live each day with grateful heart <

It’s such a beautiful day here in Michigan. Especially for this time of year.
The sun is out β˜€οΈ , the skies are clear, the fall leaves 🍁 are full of color, my family πŸ‘ͺ is healthy. And it’s atypically warm out πŸ€”.... not sure if that bodes well come wintertime ❄️, but I’ll take it!
What are you grateful for today? πŸ™πŸ» πŸ’•

You guys. I need nail help. πŸ™ˆ Now, before I ask my question, please know that I'm not asking for a sales pitch, and I will not spend the time or money to go to a nail salon. I need something that I can get at Target. πŸ‘ˆ #yallfeelme ❓ Okay, so I own a cleaning business.... which means that keeping my nails looking decent is next to impossible, but having them look like this all the time makes my ocd go bonkers. 😜 I need some long lasting clear or neutral color to make them look nice. Everything I ever get chips so bad. And the plain clear ones I've used just peel. But maybe I need a special clear and not a top coat type clear. Help! What do you use? .

Exercise doesn't always have to be a heart pumping, calorie-torching sweat session. It's simply moving when you don't have to. Period. Too many people (βœ‹ self included!) start crazy routines and quit. Why? Because the plans are crazy and doomed to fail from the get go. Give yourself grace! On the days you need that high intensity burn, go for it!!! But on days when you need a slow walk to clear your mind and stretch your legs, remember that counts too!!! Ebb and flow. Ride the wave. Just don't ever give up! As long as you're moving and consistent, you are making progress. πŸ˜—

Gonna be a full day out of the house, but I'm prepped and ready! I forgot that I wouldn't have time to come home for lunch today, so I threw it together super fast this morning. It's not perfect, but it's not the drive thru either! 😜 I thank my daughter for sharing her Uncrustables. No shame. Those things are good. 😍

A little personal development, a little #tazo chamomile tea, a snuggly blanket.... perfect end to a busy day. πŸ‘ŒπŸ» I’ve been struggling to turn my brain off at night to get a decent nights sleep. Not too keen on something in pill form, so I’m trying the tea.
What are your sleepy time methods?? 😴 πŸ’•

🍎Off Season vs. Prep Season🍎
πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯
I've gained about 4 pounds back, but I'm maintaining my muscle tone. I've backed off on training 6 days a week right now, and to training 5 days, and I've switched up my routine to build more of a nice ASS. πŸ€—πŸ€—
πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯
FYI to all who want to engage in this, and right now I'm being honest(which I always am), but I've always struggled with the gaining weight part, and while I looked great up on stage, that's not an everyday look. It's not mentally healthy all of the time. You deplete your body of carbs before entering on stage, which causes you to go into carb craving mode.
πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯
Some may ask how can you do that to your body? Well...it's a sport. Just like if you were playing baseball, football or soccer. You train hard to be good at what position you're playing for. However, in my case, it's my body that I'm training. #bikinicompetitorbeingreal #fitlife #offprepmode #reallife #fitmomlife #fitwifelife #ocbcompetitor #fitness #food #musclewife #personaltrainer #fitnesscoach #thereallife #lifestylechangenotadiet #getheass #gethealthy #beready #motivationalwife #inspirationalmondays

My make-shift lunch spot for today as we have a slight plumbing issue at work today.
It’s day 1 of my personal trial run of C L E A N W E E K!! I’m so excited you guys!
I took my measurements this morning after my first round of 21 day fix and was geeked πŸ€“ at how many I N C H E S I’ve L O S T already πŸ‘ŠπŸ». I cannot wait to see what the results will be after round 1 of C L E A N W E E K!! (I’ll post my before and after measurements in a follow up post, so keep your peeps πŸ‘€ out for those!) I still have a few spots O P E N for next weeks C L E A N W E E K challenge group. If you’re looking to B R E A K F R E E from those chains that are holding you back, but not sure if this is right for you, C L E A N W E E K is perfect for you. Only 7 days to jumpstart new habits for a H E A L T H I E R you. You deserve to put your health first!
And you know what? I’ve been there, I’m still struggle, but T O G E T H E R we can fight this and win! πŸ’•

Ok. So, here’s the S C O O P.
The photo on the right was taken a couple years ago. I wasn’t at my heaviest, but still not happy.
Not comfortable in my own skin, depressed. I’m an E M O T I O N A L eater. I’m a S T R E S S eater. Shoot, I eat when I’m B O R E D. πŸ™„

The photo on the left was a few years ago when I had lost around 30 pounds. I was feeling great, confidant, and all around happy. L O V I N G life and loving everything about it.
It’s all about B A L A N C E.

Where am I now? Somewhere in between. Over the course of the last few months I’ve knocked my weight down about 15 pounds. I’m feeling pretty great again.
But I’m not done yet. There’s more to my story that I’m stilling writing.
There’s so much more that I want to accomplish: β€’ H E A T H I E R habits β€’ more E N E R G Y β€’ more C O N F I D A N C E β€’ one day to be my own B O S S β€’ be able to just pack up and go on V A C A T I O N with my family whenever we want β€’ work from literally A N Y W H E R E

I love that I now have the B E S T support system I could ever have dreamed for - my team. My T R I B E.
What’s your story? It may not have been written yet, or maybe it’s currently in the edit phase. That’s ok, we’re here for Y O U. I’m here for Y O U.
J O I N M E and let’s write your story. It’ll be E P I C! πŸ’•

Why? Because it makes me a better wife and mom. Because it keeps my anxiety under control. Because it gives me confidence. Because it gives me energy and positive vibes. πŸ’• Because it strengthens my self discipline, which a key component to growth in anything I ever want to accomplish. I may not go speedy fast. I may crawl some days. I may lose my footing.... but I will never quit. And I know that allllll these baby steps WILL lead me to my goal. Time and consistent effort. That is my mantra. πŸ‘ŠπŸ˜Ž
