A throwback to the Wild Vine Trail half marathon at the U.S National Whitewater Center in 2016. This was a race where at times, I did not think I was going to complete it. I finished in the top 93% of all finishers... not exactly something to brag about. What I’m proud of is that I did not give up. Growth is found in working through the challenges and difficulties and finding a way to never quit. When I see older photos or race bibs, it reminds me of the strength that is in me. #dohardthings at U.S. National Whitewater Center

We all have a belief system that we have gotten from our childhood. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How many times have you thought "I need to be better" or "I'm doing this all wrong", or "I need to work harder"?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We all think this⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But this is a thought error.

I felt GOOD when I rolled out of bed just after 4am this morning, and READY to run. About halfway through my 4-5 miles, the heaviness filled my quads! No doubt that it was from yesterday’s strength work, but I just wasn’t expecting it when I felt great to start. I also ended up running the second half faster than I should have, oops... 🤦🏼‍♀️😬 I went home and completed my assigned post-run yoga video. I couldn’t quite get my quads to cooperate for the modified king pigeon pose, so I added bow pose on to end it all... Felt amazing!! On to this bittersweet day of delivering salads to my customers for the last time! Sad to be closing this chapter, but super excited about what’s to come!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #halfmarathoner #marathoner #lifeofarunner #halfmarathontraining #noexcusesmom #momof3boys #thisis40 #strongfinishathlete #coachkristenscruggs #wisconsinrunner #runwisconsin #springtraining #womensrunningcommunity #inspiringwomenrunners #womeninspiringwomen #momsinspiringmoms #runjunkie #runhole #motherrunnerlife #becauseican #trainingforapr #icandohardthings #dohardthings #sorenotsorry #masonjarsandmarathons #masonjarjess

Let’s be real...this awful jump and twisted facial expression is totally me!!! Introducing myself because there are lots of new people following me lately ....1) I am a member of the slow runners club. I remember when I hated running, couldn’t run, wouldn’t run. Today I run because God gave me the ability and I am so grateful and use it to my very best effort. 2) because I love tacos and French fries, I’ll likely be a life long member of the thick thigh club, but that’s ok because these legs can propel me a lot of places and do amazing things 3) I am over 40 but often times forget that hence embarrassing my children frequently 4) I am not a stylish instagram poster. I can’t fake my expressions and they are usually dorky. These pictures are case in point. But I love recording moments no matter how many lopsided smiles or double chins I expose. 5) I truly believe that God is good all the time, we (as in humans) are the ones who make bad choices (clears throat and inserts the word, sin) and hate accepting responsibility for the consequences, but we love being applauded for the good decisions and claiming the rewards. 6) I hate the word “teenager” - they are young adults- and should be treated as such...and they are my favorite age group in the world. 7) I am an 8 on the enneagram and will either fiercely protect you or totally obliterate you...God’s really working on that later half of me..it’s not my favorite part of me.8) Movies...We love movies and a great visual story. It’s our favorite date .... so don’t anyone ruin the big one we have all been waiting on ever since leaving the theater shocked at the end of Infinity Wars 9) There is so much more to me than this IG account ever shows. I am an avid reader. Hate idle conversation. Don’t watch television. Love baseball. Love people. Love my husband and children and am thankful they love me even though I’m often the most selfish of the family. 10) I am a child of God with a great big curiosity for the world he created and love learning about it and exploring it.

The ecstatic expression on your face when you hear the news that I AM WRITING A BOOK! - - - It is about taking a holistic approach to interior design and how our home is able to heal us on a deeper level. Holistic living involves the vital connection between body, mind, spirit and home. Home as in our living space and home as in our “inner” space. Our best self exists balancing one upon the other. I am super excited for this next journey. It feels BIG.

I looked at our workout for today before I ever left the house, I always like to be mentally prepared for whatever is coming, and I thought oh that isn’t that bad. Once I walked into the gym I was informed that any workout that has a name is going to be difficult. This was only a 20 minute workout today but there were times I felt like it was 20 minutes times a few... I was able to get 16 rounds and 12 reps completed. I don’t think that is too bad for the first time doing this workout but I definitely have room to improve. And I am definitely feeling this one now. I think my coach knows my upper body is my weakest and is trying to fix that as soon as possible..... 🤦‍♀️ #betterthanyesterday #whatsyourwhy #findingme #becominganathlete #dohardthings #fighter

Oh hey! Happy Friday Eve! This is my holy shit I just kicked my own ass look. Woke up pumped af for leg day only to find out it was actually shoulder day...you kidding me?! I hate shoulder day (insert baby whine). Shoulder day is hard because my shoulders are weeeeeeak! Watch my stories for a peak at my complaining 🙄😆 . . I did it though and gave my FULL effort, not because I wanted to, because I can! Then I busted out 20 mins of step cardio, because I can do that too. . . Doing the easy may give you short term gratification but its that hard shit that builds beautiful minds and strong bodies over time! . . Stop slacking. Start doing the hard stuff. Start giving more effort. Just START!!!! . . My May virtual accountability group sign up is open....perfect time is start!

6 years ago, I was a Yoga Only type of girl. I went thru YTT and taught for a year before moving for my corporate job. . . Somewhere along the line I was introduced to runDisney so I slowly started taking walks, then jogs, then running became a regular part of my routine...but I knew I needed more. . . I accepted a friends challenge and signed up to become a health coach, and in all transparency, I did it for the discount $ on the program! . . I can't believe how different I am now from that moment. I can't believe I'm about to re-train and possibly take training for other programs. Y'all I can't believe I like lifting weights! It's all finally heading in the right direction. . . I'm the strongest I've ever been physically and mentally. . . I have some of the best friends I've ever had the pleasure to meet. . .

And if you are interested in a collab, or just looking for a safe place to bounce ideas, me and my people got you. @carmelaaimee is another smart business woman who is a safe person.

🙌 I heard this today during my morning workout and it stuck with me. This morning my am workout crew challenged me to do a longer and more intense workout than I had originally planned. It was hard but when I looked up and saw everyone else doing it I knew I could push through. I didn’t know that I needed this in my life- but my life has only gotten better with this in it. My family supports me in everything I do- without fail they believe in me. Feeling especially grateful today. 🥰 . . Looking forward to sharing this feeling and support with a whole new group of women starting this weekend ! It’s not too late for you to feel this way too 😘.

Sometimes life is easy and sometimes life is hard. Here’s how I get through hard: . I keep going... . I put my head down and step one proverbial (and sometimes literal) foot in front of the other. I don’t run from it. I face hard and try not to over analyze anything. Sometimes the reason, excuse, or explanation for whatever is happening will reveal itself in this lifetime and sometimes it won’t. . I cry... . I’ve learned to be vulnerable and strong at the same time. My tears aren’t a weakness or a sign of defeat. They’re a cleanse. After a good water works session, I feel lighter and clearer. . I breathe... . And I remind myself that nothing lasts forever, that I am not in control of everything, but I am part of a greater plan. I train my mind to come back to the present moment when the stories I make up in my head take me to scary, far-away, non-existent places. . And I find the funny... . Because sometimes you can’t make this shit up. . . . . . #keepgoing #grit #wecandohardthings #nevergiveup #breathethroughit

*NEW* on the blog: “You have to be Crazy to start your own Business”. . It’s true, too. You have to be totally bananas to do this! Are used to work for other people and it was a totally different set of problems. And I completely prefer this set, because it comes with making my own schedule, the freedom to build my life on my own terms, and getting to do something I actually believe in without compromise. So while I’m a little crazy...I’m SO glad. . Since I started my business I have learned so, so much. I have learned The power of having other entrepreneur friends who understand what it’s like. I have also discovered that beautiful high I get when things are good, and it is always worth it. Are you a fellow entrepreneur? Read the post in my bio and tell me if you identify. I know I’m not alone here! 🙋🏼‍♀️💻💡 . . #entrepreneurlife #workingfromhome #entrepreneuradventures #adventuresofanentrepreneur #bizbabe #businesswomen #yeswedid #doyourownthing #doterra #happiessismade #wemustbecrazy #getcrazy #dohardthings at Ashland, Oregon

Legs & Back was a success today 💪🏻🦵🏻 Felt legit in my getup 😂👉 light shoes, compression pants and a blood blister to make pull-ups interesting. I’ve been timing myself to make sure I’m not resting too long (if I do) and to help me push the envelope everyday. I sequenced this with balance moves because mine sucks. Makes for a good challenge on top of the 225 squats and 81 pull-ups 👌🏻 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Opt for the challenges.

Day 2 #pullupin2019 is hanging 🐒 again, using an old video because today has been a sh** show and I would love to not get behind. So here is a video on my on the wall core training- coming off the wall each hold and getting back on. It’s super tiring- pull, hang, compress, pull, hang, compress, pull, hang, compress. I can get 4 moves in a row before I tire out. For the record I did go climbing (outside!!!) today so I did get my pull work in 😉 Awesome Sponsors: . @Lole @Team_aminovital @Rollgahealth .

Finally got my workout done! I think this week hasn’t been the best for me all around. Looks like how my emotions go, goes the rest of my life. My emotions have been all over the place, I have missed more days of exercise than I want to admit and eaten more candy and junk than o should as well. I’ve determined I’m not going to beat myself up. I am just going to try and do better. That’s all I can expect of myself. #transform20 #sahm #momof3boysand1girl #dohardthings #weightlosstransformation

This woman right here. So much of all of the work I have done over the last 6 months was from something she said to me several months ago. Painting tonight was perfect even if I was stressed about it earlier. It stopped me from being at home trying to get everything perfect and then spending hours angsting about leaving my young adult child to do this and then dying. Or freaking out about the whole thing altogether. Close my eyes and jump right? Also we won’t comment on my talent in art. I have many other fine talents 🤣 #kellygoeswest #anxiety #arttherapy #dohardthings at Painting with a Twist

Spending this amazing #wowwednesday with fresh hair, sore arms, and a full pint of @eatenlightened . But first I had to thank all of you amazing women for all the love, support, dm’s and sweet words. Prior to #upwLA2019 I would have said no to being featured because I would have been incredibly uncomfortable with it. But my goal has been to do things that make me uncomfortable and all you women proved to me that I shouldn’t be scared of putting myself out there. As I spoke to @alexia_clark about her program and what it meant to me I kept going back to the #queenteam and all that you have done to help me through this journey. This group of women is like no other. Now more than I ever I am begging for meetup ASAP. __________________ I now plan to sit down and watch some This is Us. In the 6 weeks since @tonyrobbins I have watched around 5 hours of tv. But recently I read an article that even Tony Robbins loves and watches This is Us so it basically means it’s mandatory that I watch it right 😉 also this is only my second flavor of enlightened and 🥰❤️😘 tell me your favorite flavor because I NEED more of this stuff in my life

Some food for thought via the #risetogether podcast. What you consume, in turn, consumes you. What you dwell on becomes your narrative. So let me ask you these questions: -What are you breathing life into? -What are you prioritizing? If it’s negative or makes you jealous of what others have, then it’ll leave you bitter and dissatisfied. This is especially true with social media. “Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” . . . . . #liftheavy #teacherswholift #girlswholift #fitchick #fitteacher #legday #whatever #bibleverses #motivate #inspire #empower #bodypositive #positivevibes #dohardthings #outlook #putgoodingetgoodout #bestself #grace #selfcare #selflove #healthjourney #fitnessjourney #healthcoach #fitnesscoach

I was gone the other day for a couple hours, & while I was away Girlfriend went to the creek & found these things. I was really surprised. “All this stuff? Just in our backyard? You found these things? Bu yourself?” Yes, yes, she assured me. Happily. Contented. She had invented her own adventure, found a handful of gifts. It makes me think about my own soul. (I keep coming back to this. I must be meant to learn something here.). Some days I am swimming in Peace & Contentedness, the days glittery with Good Things. But much more normal is a Trudging, a Weightedness to my days. Whether it’s kid fights or worry or the overrunning dish pile or the cat puke in little boy’s bed (that was yesterday. he woke up to it.). The days are less often glittery & more often work & work & work. But I know in the deepest part of me, WE WERE MEANT FOR MORE THAN THIS. I catch glimpses sometimes, like a kid playing hide & seek. There! Over there! & I believe with all of my small heart, we were meant to chase after Joy. Not fleeting fantasies or cake at midnight, things not offering lasting Joy, but the deep-down-in-your-gut things that speak of God: flowers in springtime & walks down quiet roads. Good books & reading aloud & warm drinks & hugs. Bonfires on chilly nights & warm dinner shared with great friends & bits & pieces scoured out of the creek. These are small things, all. But they speak deeply into those hard, crusty places in me if I will let them. They speak of Joy. #thepursuitofjoyproject #ouronepreciouslife

I hate cardio. It’s hard. It challenges me. But i signed up to do a 6 week program that’s straight cardio anyways. Why? BECAUSE IT CHALLENGES ME. It pushes me outside my comfort zone and forces me to learn how to coach myself through hard things. What’s that inner voice say to you when you struggle? Is it that you’re a failure and can’t do it or is it that you’re strong and you can do it? This has been 3 1/2 weeks of consciously changing that voice and cheering myself on. I’m at home by myself. My trainer might be yelling through the tv, my challengers in my online group might be cheering me on, but in my workout, it’s all me. No one would know if i just turned it off and quit. But i choose to push myself and show myself i can do hard things. I’m learning new tools to help me through tough times. Things I’ll be able to use later when i feel like giving up. Life WILL throw me hard things, but if i have the tools I’ll be able to navigate those things a little easier. at Reynoldsburg, Ohio

Since I was very young, I’ve always had a massive need to be liked. I can’t stand knowing that people out there think I’m weird or don’t like me or hate my guts. It’s even more brutal when I know someone doesn’t like something I’ve created. Whether it’s business, poetry, photography, or music, you put your soul into your art, and it leaves you open to some serious pain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After my business partner and I founded our company, I would get emotionally wrecked reading customer complaints or worse - bad reviews. I would read one nasty comment and it would throw my whole day off. And it happened regularly. It was my nightmare. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So you can imagine why Instagram - or any social media platform - was radioactive to me. It’s like, “Here’s an open forum where you can put yourself out there and let people take free shots.” No thanks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But I’ve been growing up lately (thanks @garyvee and @davidgoggins for the much needed ass-kicking). I’m really tired of letting other people’s opinions dictate my emotional state. I’ve got things to say and things to create and I’m doing it regardless of what anyone thinks. I wish I had figured this out a decade ago, but there it is. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hope one person reads this and decides to stop letting other people’s opinions dictate what they can accomplish. . . . #tbhpost #entrepreneurstruggles #dohardthings #fearoffailure #selfimprovement #notafraid #improving #gettingbettereveryday #gettingbetter #growthmindset #personaldevelopment #personaljourney #comfortzone #entrepreneurship101 #realme #portraitblackandwhite #businessschool #greatnessawaits #honesty #behonest #lifegoals #juststarting #mentalhappiness #strongmindset #gogetit at Raleigh, North Carolina

During one of my team training calls this month, my coach shared a question — “would you rather learn, or be paralyzed?” . I think the obvious answer is “well of course I’d rather learn. Who wants to be paralyzed?” But as I thought more about it, I realized I often live in paralysis. I’d rather do something perfectly, or not do it at all, than have to learn how to do it. That learning process is messy, and it causes me to confront my pride. . But am I really benefiting from avoiding that learning process? Does it make me automatically perfect? Does it cause me to grow? . No. It leaves me stuck, afraid to move, afraid to mess up, afraid to fail. It leaves me paralyzed. . The past two years have been a constant practice of having to choose between learning or being paralyzed. It’s been true in my physical health, in my relationship with the Lord, in building community, in investing in my marriage, in being a health coach, you name it. And it’s been hard at times. It’s not comfortable, it reminds me I’m not perfect, and it involves me failing and learning and trying again. . But do you know what else the past two years have held? Some of the most growth I’ve ever experienced. I have a long way to go, and I’ll never reach a point where I no longer have to learn. But if I had remained paralyzed — if I’d given into my fear of failure and need for perfection — I would be in a much different, darker place. . I say all of this to encourage you that it is possible to break out of that paralysis, and that it’s so worth it. I know it’s scary, I know it’s painful, I know it’s risky. But I also know that when you choose to be paralyzed, rather than learn, you’re giving up so much potential growth and blessing. . So, let me pass the question on to you. In whatever situation you’re in, would you rather learn, or be paralyzed? . . . . . #cultivatewhatmatters #dothenextthing #thenextrightthing #justdosomething #lifelonglearning #dohardthings #bettertogether #practicemakespermanent #seekprogressnotperfection at Cypress, Texas

This is a quote that has stuck with me since my sophomore basketball season. We were playing an away game. I was late as my mom dropped me off at the team bus because one of my siblings had held us up getting in the car. Angry, frustrated, I stormed onto the team bus knowing I was going to get an earful from my coach about my tardiness. She was actually fairly understanding, but my demeanor remained pretty dark and brooding during the ride. Just before we arrived at the rival school, I had this note passed back to me. I was a little taken aback at first. As I really let it settle in though, it did help to change my perspective. I’m grateful my teammate not only took the time to think of me, but she was also brave enough to share some wisdom, not knowing how I would take it. I have kept this paper since, pulling it out from time to time. It has influenced me to decide to be happy when I could have spent life upset about every roadblock. That doesn’t mean I don’t have my own days where I lose my cool. I can still be as grumpy as they come! (Just ask my husband! 🤦🏻‍♀️) But I try to work out of that negatively faster. My challenge to you is to remember you can choose to be happy. Implement this in your own life and share it with others. You never know whose life you might change! ❤️

Pinching myself today! I didn’t go to university. I don’t have an undergraduate degree or a masters, but... I’M GONNA BE A DOCTOR Y’ALL! (Of words, not bodies, BUT STILL!) About to embark on a PhD in English, with a research specialty in #truecrime. My admission is based entirely on my 20+ years as a professional writer and body of published work. I know this is going to be super hard, but I’m useless without a big hairy goal to work towards! . . . #phd #phdstudent #phdlife #phdjourney #phdcandidate #phdchat #gradlife #researcher #research #doctoralstudent #doctorate #graduateschool #postgrad #postgradlife #doctortobe #graduatestudent #gradstudent #postdoclife #degreelife #universitylife #unilife #yourmomgoestocollege #mumswhostudy #studygram #universityofnewcastle #dohardthings #truecrimecommunity
