80 DAY OBSESSION NUTRITION PLAN PRINTABLE SHEETS & DAY ONE RECAP!

80 DAY OBSESSION NUTRITION PLAN PRINTABLE SHEETS & DAY ONE RECAP!

DAY ONE workout is complete, and as of now I've consumed 4 of the 5 meals for the day.  Only two more left!  And I'm happy to report I'm not starving.  ;)  AND..... this nutrition plan actually feels doable.   CHEERS TO THAT!   

Over the weekend my husband Jayson and I prepped our workout space for 80 Day Obsession by painting one of the walls with chalkboard paint.  It's something I've been wanting to do for awhile.  And I felt it would motivate ME to have a wall of quotes, adding one each day.

THE SIDE EFFECT OF NEGATIVE SELF TALK

THE SIDE EFFECT OF NEGATIVE SELF TALK

This has been on my heart for awhile now to talk about, but I'm still gathering my thoughts and putting them into words.  So bear with me on this.   

Here's the reality.... I have to admit I have a problem yelling at my kids.   It's so embarrassing to even admit that and share that with you guys.  I don't think I'm a MONSTER by any means, I don't see yelling as an everyday thing.  But it's enough that my kids aren't surprised to hear me yell.  And I have had my share of epic meltdowns where I essentially threw a temper tantrum yelling at my kids.    

The hard part for me to reconcile with that is as a child I VOWED I would be the cool & calm & collected mother.   Oh how I had such grand visions of the mother I would one day be!

WHEN YOU APPRECIATE SOMETHING YOU TAKE CARE OF IT

WHEN YOU APPRECIATE SOMETHING YOU TAKE CARE OF IT

I’ve been preparing today for a call I’m hosting for my team tonight. And #spoileralert - one of the topics I’m going to talk about is “creating from a place of JOY”.

Cuz I feel it’s important for my team to know they get to find JOY in their life NOW, and create & build their business from THAT place. NOT create and build their business from a place of misery SEEKING joy.  

You may think it doesn’t make a difference, but I do.

THE MAGIC IN DREAMING BIG

THE MAGIC IN DREAMING BIG

It was an adventure getting here that's for sure!

An Uber driver late to pick me up, plus hitting traffic - it wasn’t the best combo for an early morning flight.  

I was ten minutes past the deadline to check my bag.  😫😩😖 When the only option the airline offered was for me to pay 75 bucks to take the next available flight in 7 hours, I paid it without thinking it thru. As the lady tagged my baggage and put it on the belt I walked away and it hit me.  

Why don’t I...

TIME TO START

TIME TO START

I claim this time of year as SPECIAL. 

People think it’s the New Year that is empowering you to SET and ACCOMPLISH new goals.  

But in reality, it’s the November vibe.  

Year after year, THIS is when I successfulLY SET and TAKE ACTION on big goals.  

THIS is when I’m deep in self reflection, contemplating 🤔 “How did the past year go for me?” “Am I on track to END this year where I wanted?” “What do I want moving forward?”

Truly, so many MAJOR CHANGES in my life STARTED in NOVEMBER.  

November is when...

YOU ALWAYS HAVE THE CHOICE

YOU ALWAYS HAVE THE CHOICE

First feeling of the day?  

I won’t lie.... the very first feeling I had this morning was anxiety. “I have so much that needs to get done, I’m so behind”

Second thought that entered my mind?  

“Gratitude is a magnet for miracles. So what can I be grateful for?”


This month I have traveled a lot. In fact, I’ve only been home a grand total of nine days this month. Crazy huh?! And four of those days I was

YOUR PERMISSION SLIP

YOUR PERMISSION SLIP

Recent lesson learned— THERE IS IMMENSE POWER IN WRITING YOURSELF A PERMISSION SLIP. 

I had never considered needing a permission slip. 🤷🏼‍♀️ But as I listened to a new book on the flight to Mexico that’s exactly what the author recommended. 

I listened to Brene Brown share how she had the idea one day to write herself a permission slip to be happy, and how much POWER she felt in that. 

Upon hearing this, I immediately...

WHATEVER IT TAKES

WHATEVER IT TAKES

“Mom, do you have any work that needs to be done around the house? Would you consider hiring me to come deep clean, or complete some scrapbook pages so I could earn some money?”
When we first moved to Idaho Falls we were just coming off our bankruptcy. We were getting by on a month to month basis. But vacations? Out of the question. 
I remember when our 5 year anniversary was approaching in 2010 I wanted to do SOMETHING to celebrate. 
Five years of marriage - kind of a big deal! 
I figured the ONLY way we’d be able to do ANYTHING was for

CHILDREN ARE IMITATORS

CHILDREN ARE IMITATORS

I saw this quote tonight and now I'm thinking over this crazy little journey of life. I guess that will happen if the kids are busy watching a movie on a road trip and I'm left with quiet time. Lol. 

But this quote is very very true. In fact, the reality of this is what snapped me out of my life funk! 💫

You guys know I first became acquainted with depression as a kid in sixth grade. It was a constant companion for over a decade to follow...

A FEELING THAT I'M ACTUALLY LIVING!

A FEELING THAT I'M ACTUALLY LIVING!

Ya know what?  

It feels pretty dang good to get to dinner time, start winding down from the day, and feel like I got a freaking lot DONE.  💫

I so appreciate that feeling of ACCOMPLISHMENT!!  🏆 #internalsatisfaction 

Prolly cuz as a new mom there were many days I got to the end of the day and felt so defeated, like "Did today even matter??" "Did I do anything that really made a difference?"

And it's not cuz...
