I feel REALLY DAMN GOOD. I just started a new stomach med that I swear is a miracle drug called #lowdosenaltrexone. Regular dose Naltrexone (50-100mg) is for addicts/alcoholics who need help staying clean. But in very small doses (2.5-5mg) it’s anti-inflammatory (NOT an anti-depressant), targeting the gut. Happy gut = happy me.
⠀
It’s been 2 weeks since I started #LDN and my stomach feels better, looks flatter, and I’ve been in a fantastic mood every day. If I could I’d promote this baby on Instagram for product I would because 1. It’s compounded so it’s kind of expensive and 2. ITS THAT GOOD.
⠀ ⠀ 
Disclaimer: Low-dose Naltrexone may make you extremely happy and want to post self-serving selfies on the internet. Low-dose Naltrexone may cause serious complications who actually knows but honestly I don’t care because I’m so damn happy. Do not take Low-dose Naltrexone if you are allergic to Low-dose Naltrexone that seems like common sense. Ask your doctor if Low-dose Naltrexone is right for you @kylemeyerND will hook you up GET YOU SOME.

My road trip today was an all day trip over to western MN and business oriented. I paid attention as my husband drove (kind of😬) so that I could navigate back home by myself w/o using my maps app.

But little blondie here has a way of getting lost in her thoughts and music, and when
Karen Carpenter’s song, “Where Do I Go from Here” started playing, that pretty much summed up my situation!🤓 I’ve had a lot of unplanned adventures like this behind the wheel, but at the end of the day, I’m always back home sleeping on my own pillow...miraculously..thankfully!💃😅 (Side note...To my surprise tonight, I thought I’d detoured so far out of the way that my husband would be home an hour or so before me! Low and behold..I beat him home!🤷‍♀️🏅😁)

Happy Sunday!!! Finally got some of my new pieces in last night! You guys!!! I LOVE THESE!
.
.
The black Mesh ribbon leggings are amazing. Size DOWN. I went down 1(wearing a 4), but should have gone down to a size 2 😱🙈. They feel amazing. And I LOVE the look. Perfect for Barre, Yoga, Pilates...etc. I paired it with one of my FAV bras...the Amazing Seamless. .
.
The leopard crop leggings (with pockets🙌) are sooo flipping cute! Personally, I am not a crop fan, and wished they were longer, but otherwise, they are perfect! Well done @zyiaactive!! Matching of course with the leopard bra! This bra will be a perfect swimsuit top as well! So cute! Has a mesh back. Love it!! Link in bio

Forgot to post my run from last night
Had a good run tonight with much better sidewalk conditions so my legs get pretty good when I was done and the time was really good.  Bit of an action shot here, I slide off one step to the next one and the camera caught me soon as i landed lol.

Head Over Heels!! What fills your soul with passion and purpose? And makes you flip for freaking joy?! 🔥💃❣️ I get excited about SO many things in life... It can sometimes overwhelm me! 
I am a self-proclaimed multipotentialite! Yes, you read that correctly! Still, WTF?!?! It means I have an ability and preference to excel in multiple disciplines and fields... My “one true calling” is having passion, curiosity and expertise in sensuality and sexuality, authentic movement, community outreach, emotional connection, wellness and life coaching...and I could go on!

Not knowing what I wanted to be “when I grew up” filled me with anxiety, worthlessness and fear. I felt I needed to be one thing: a therapist, archaeologist, dance instructor, travel agent...ONE identity to make me feel right and accepted in our society.

It took me a good long while to realize that I am ME, I am WHOLE, I am 100% IN MY TRUTH when all the parts of me exist in what stirs my curiosity, my passion, my intellect, my soul. 
The list is long!! I am grateful for the knowledge that I can pursue all of my interests and know my life is better served because of this! 
So, think of all the things that light you up, give you pleasure, and make you want to freaking flip for joy!! Fill your soul full of those things...and fall head over heels in love with yourself every damn day!!

After seeing @cutdacarb  post about taco shells, I knew I had to try! Put a cereal bowl upside down on the wrap, and cut out two circles (used the scraps to make tortilla chjps). Two shells is about 7 net carbs (9 if you eat the scraps). Fried up in avocado oil. Like the real deal 🙌🏼🌮#keto #ketotaco #macros #fitover40 #fatadapted #fatadaptedrunner #ketoaf #cutacarb

We climbed, we hiked, we ran, we hung, we did some water crossings and we got lost (only for a few minutes). Most importantly we did it together.  I love that my #minime is down for anything... Even when it meant leaving the house by 9am for our hike.

Happy Chinese New Year!!!

Happy Chinese New Year!!!

This morning’s semi distance run. 🏃‍♀️ .
.
I see a lot of posts focused on a negative split.  I’m not big on that because I usually start of slower then get faster as my muscles warm up.  I like to run faster toward the end of my runs ... I always have because I’m excited Im almost done! 
I do what works for me and my body is different than others so there’s that. .
.
I added a couple pix of my little Dougal and Kitty because they are mood today. .
.
My split numbers at the end.

Day 13 #75hard
.
After reading about the death of Kobe today, the thought of what legacy I would leave behind was at the forefront of my mind.
.
I watched men work themselves to the grave and leave nothing. Never taking the time to recharge or enjoy what the so desperately worked to build.
.
For those of you like me that are still in the beginning stages of building your legacy, work hard but remember to slow down and enjoy your life. .
Look, I struggle with this. I need constant reminding from my wife to be grateful, to build the family unit, to be my own supporter. .
Balance isn’t easy but regret is forever.
.
Find some way to recharge. Some of way to connect to yourself. .

What do we do when we’re sick? Well, I look like death warmed over.. lol. This is the real me, no filter no makeup, dirty hair, unplucked brows. #beingreal

Well, most of us stubborn BB keep pushing. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. There is nothing wrong with exercising when you have a cold, in fact it might help....but, what about when you’re REALLY sick? Rest. Don’t worry about macros or workouts or loss of GAINZ. Rest. 
I was diagnosed with pneumonia today. I feel like crap and I’m also a bit bored. Anyway, I rarely get sick, but when I do, it’s for real. I’ve never had pneumonia or the flu. The last time I had a GI bug I was in college. And I like to think I’m in tune with my body. I told someone Friday I didn’t feel right. Saturday I couldn’t get out of bed, felt chilled and nauseated. This morning after a pep talk I climbed into my car and drove to an urgent care center. I said- “I think I have pneumonia”. Lol And I was right.
Am I stressed about my diet? NO Am I worried I’m going to lose muscle? NO. Am I focused on getting well? YES. Am I bummed I can’t go the the gym? a little.
My point is take care of yourself. I have had an EXTRAORDINARY amount of stress in my life, and despite my best efforts, it got the better of me.
Is my coach gonna yell at me? Nope. Is she going complain if I don’t meet my macros? Nope. 
If your coach does, you need to get a new one....that’s not coaching, that’s abuse.
Need a team? Check out @fitbodyfusion - link in my bio.
When do you need to see a doctor? Chronic lingering cough, when you have fever or chills, thick mucous production, body aches, shortness of breath or dizziness.

Well, most of us stubborn BB keep pushing. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. There is nothing wrong with exercising when you have a cold, in fact it might help....but, what about when you’re REALLY sick? Rest. Don’t worry about macros or workouts or loss of GAINZ. Rest.
I was diagnosed with pneumonia today. I feel like crap and I’m also a bit bored. Anyway, I rarely get sick, but when I do, it’s for real. I’ve never had pneumonia or the flu. The last time I had a GI bug I was in college. And I like to think I’m in tune with my body. I told someone Friday I didn’t feel right. Saturday I couldn’t get out of bed, felt chilled and nauseated. This morning after a pep talk I climbed into my car and drove to an urgent care center. I said- “I think I have pneumonia”. Lol And I was right.
Am I stressed about my diet? NO Am I worried I’m going to lose muscle? NO. Am I focused on getting well? YES. Am I bummed I can’t go the the gym? a little.
My point is take care of yourself. I have had an EXTRAORDINARY amount of stress in my life, and despite my best efforts, it got the better of me.
Is my coach gonna yell at me? Nope. Is she going complain if I don’t meet my macros? Nope.
If your coach does, you need to get a new one....that’s not coaching, that’s abuse.

Lunch. Easy. Colourful. Delish!
.
❇️ bed of romaine, spinach, kale
❇️ cucumber
❇️ Cherry tomatoes
❇️ green onion
❇️ purple cabbage
❇️ bell peppers
❇️ mix of black beans and corn
❇️ avocado
.
For the dressing I just used some lime, Dijon mustard, ACV and S&P.
Once the avocado is mashed up, it makes it nice and creamy!!!

I've enjoyed solo hiking lately but it was absolutely wonderful to hike with my #minime today.  We took advantage of this beautiful sunny Sunday and headed to #brownmountain #wilsonscreek. ..
..
We had a little excitement within our adventure today and it was a blast.  I love this girl and her adventurous side. I'm so glad #shecallsmemom.

Hopefully this will bring back my motivation 🤞🤞

Stomach virus hit our house this weekend so I was not feeling so well. Still a little blah today so decided to do a small meal prep. Threw together an easy one sheet pan dish with frozen chicken strips and fresh sliced up peppers. Then separately roasted some new potatoes that were close to being at the end of its timeline.

Gotta love tossing with avocado oil from @aldiusa and my favorite @primalpalate seasonings (both @whole30 complient) & then throw in the oven to cook. For the first time, I tried the Amore seasoning on the chicken and peppers and it was so good. The Meat & Potatoes seasoning is one of my favs. I get a large pouch of that off Amazon to last longer. Are you meal prepping today? What’s cooking in your kitchen? #fitover40 #fasterwaytofatloss #whole30 #primalpalatespices #onesheetpandinner

Working our legs,  and cardio - as hard as we can,  while we have fun  in my Legs,  Bums & Tums class.

8th Fitversary today.
8 years ago God laid out for me that I was headed down the same path as mother. 5 years earlier I had watched my mom die of complications from obesity and cancer. I was scared. I was pretty unhappy, depressed and no confidence or self-esteem. I felt uneasy all the time. I made small changes at a time and just one to 3 at a time. I didn't tell anybody what I was doing until I started getting questions and compliments.  Then I came out of my fitness closet, because before then I wasn't sure I would or could do this thing. 8 years later and I'd have to say that although my physical transformation is big  I'm more impressed with the internal change. I have much more confidence. My self-esteem is SO much better. My depression and unhappiness with my body is pretty nonexistent. I still have cellulite and fat rolls when I sit down. I also like cake and brownies, but overall I'm healthy. I did it as a perimenopausal woman with a 1 year old! I've been about the same weight for five years this past summer. I've heard that if you keep the weight off for five years your chances of keeping it off are pretty good. I may have started scared, afraid of dying a fat girls death and just wanting to lose weight, but now I stay this way for my mental health. That uneasiness I mentioned was pent up energy. My body was trying to tell me to move more! I don't have that anymore. I have peace. God alone gets the credit for showing me all of this and all that he has shown me along the journey.
