#turnoveranewleaf

These past few months was a roller coaster in my life but my family and close friends have been there for me no matter what. Trying to be a good father and good man for my little family. You become the company you keep and sometimes the people who you trust are the very ones you shouldn’t. I love my family and the support behind me. My kick ass uncle Greg has been fighting cancer for a while now but I know Gods got a plan. Me and him have so much in common I feel like he’s just an older version of me. I love him and everyone dearly. Starting over in life is scary sometimes but change is worth it. #turnoveranewleaf #changeispositive #fuckcancer #loveeveryoneinmylife #beagoodman

This was the actual moment I realized we WERE NOT done the workout! I was tanked. Like the dripping in sweat, couldn’t breathe, wasn’t even sure I could stand up kind of tanked!
.
But @jerichomcmatthews said we had another round to do so I stood up, took a couple cleansing breaths and said, “LET’S GO!”
.
Because I know how I wouldn’t felt if I let myself quit here. I’d feel defeated. And that’s not what I choose to get out of my workouts. I want to feel like a freaking warrior when I’m done. I want to shock myself with what my body can do.
.
Have I always been this girl?
OHMYGOSH, everyone who is reading this who’s known me since high school is laughing their butts off at that question!
.
I quit field hockey after the first practice because the coach made us run.
.
I was a cheerleader before it was an actual sport. We didn’t workout. We just had to look cute and keep the banana clips from falling out of our spiral perms during our halftime dance.
.
I’ve quit every gym I ever joined because I didn’t like to sweat and I got bored using the same machines over and over.
.
I’ve spent my entire life trying to figure out how to get in shape without getting uncomfortable and/or sweaty.
.
This is all new for me. I’ve worked out more times in the last year than I had worked out I ALL the years leading up to last year. That’s the honest truth.
.
Do I love pushing myself out of my comfort zone? No! Not in that moment but I do it for the feelings I get AFTER.
.
Accomplishment.
Strength.
Confidence.
Elation.
Self-esteem.
Commitment.
Drive.
.
Things I didn’t know I could feel about myself until I started this journey.
.
That’s why I press play every day! I’ve REINVENTED how I define myself. I no longer put myself in the “I’m not athletic” box. The only box I’m in is the one I’m still building...and it’s an OPEN box! 📦 It will remain UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

Pick up a can of organic Tea Soda at @WholeFoods (in Colorado, New Mexico, Missouri, Utah, Idaho, Texas, and Kansas). And let's toast to real fruit ingredients and a pinch of cane sugar. .
Our Green Tea Soda = green tea + peach + blackberry + lime + cilantro.

Summer is a great time to unplug and recharge!  With the days longer and the evenings alive with warmth and fun activities like concerts in the park or bonfires at the beach, try ditching your phone and heading out the door.  Pay close attention to the noises, rich colors and unique personality of your natural surroundings.
.
Immerse yourself in the opportunities that nature has to offer as a way to stay grounded and create balance with the excessive hours that we spend in doors and on our electronic devices.
.
Maybe try one of the following:
-Volunteer outdoors
-Make outdoor time meaningful
-Eat a meal outside
-Go for an evening walk
-Teach your children about the five senses by doing an outdoor scavenger hunt
-BBQ
-Beach Day!
.
Here’s another thing to consider… do you get sick often? Do you feel fatigue and tiredness? Bone and back pain? Depression?  Impaired wound healing? Bone and hair loss?  All of these things can be a result of Vitamin D deficiency.  Studies show that approximately 40% of people in the U.S. are Vitamin D deficient.
Regular sun exposure is the most natural way to get enough vitamin D.
.
To maintain healthy blood levels, aim to get 10–30 minutes of midday sunlight, several times per week. .

I’m all about a good plot twist....and this just hit me between the eyes today when I said exactly this to someone who was sad because she’s searching for who she used to be.
.
I feel like I was my most authentic self when I was a senior in high school.
.
But why would I wanna go back THERE?
. 
Everything I’ve learned since I was 18 has made me more ready for life and the curveballs it throws just when the ripples from the last throw settle.
.
It’s about reinvention, Sis!

What’s your ‘it’?
We all have one.
It’s the thing that hangs in the back of your mind.
That thing you tell yourself, “Someday I will...” or “Once I pay this off, I’ll...”.
.
But you know what? If you stop doubting yourself you can GET IT, NOW. You really can.
.
The only thing standing in your way is you.
.
The only thing you need is a PLAN.
.
And don’t say, “I will...when I find the time.” Those people that are living their best lives, they didn’t FIND the time, they MADE the time.
.
That’s the difference between the talkers and the doers! Some talk about doing it and those winning at life, they just DO IT.
.
They find a way. The don’t take no for an answer. They make the necessary sacrifices. 
They. Just. Do. It.
. 
I’ll ask again, What’s your “it”?
What are you waiting for?
.
