I LOVE being a #boymom .
Like - so hard. Especially to my boys. And all of their friends.
But when I saw the opportunity to coach with the #girlsontherun at my son’s elementary school - you better believe I jumped at the chance.
Getting to help foster the healthy physical, emotional and mental development of rising, young women through running - ummmmmm....#hellyes .
Met some amazing women, and some pretty cool girls... Y’all...and they gave me a mug 💕
💥The decision to change may be the most important decision ever💥

HOW CAN WE CHANGE THE WORLD BY COMMITTING TO SOMETHING
One thing that makes me sad is how I see the world around me being disrespectful of other people because of commitment issues.
We value time and there are so many choices out there when it comes to dating, what you do on your spare time etc. It’s easy to not commit because you want to keep your options open but without commitment how can our society work in the future? I really do respect people whom stick to their word and commit to the things they have chosen. They are the ones that you can trust and will stick around when you really need them. I really believe the the people who never stick to their word never intended to
How sad would the world be if we could never trust the people around us to commit to what they promised you? #
This morning I'm filled with JOY! Joy is a choice that I should make every day but today I'm especially thankful and excited to volunteer and serve with FCA! 💕I love being with teens and middle schoolers. There's something unique and special about getting to truly know them and have the honor to help them navigate through life. We played silly games, ate yummy treats and learned about why we need God. ⏺️Look for ways you can pour in to other people- and when you find that way that excites you, you are in your Sweet Spot and fulfilling your purpose!! #livelifewell#liveyourstyle#choosejoy#bejoy#fca#gulfcoastfca#youcanmakeachange#youweremadeforapurpose#youweremadeforthis

We are fortunate to live in a society that allows us to choose who leads us, however Iran wasn’t so lucky. In Keaton’s Lemon Garden follows the aftermath of a revolution that took away the voices of its citizens. Use your voice today and choose our government ✊🏽 (Iran Revolution, 1978)
I got this at the end of my workout today and it made me so thankful I worked to my max today. .
This little one deserves my best. As he is growing his grandma is committed to getting stronger so I can give him my best. So I can run around with him. So I can get up and down from the floor 10 million times if he needs me to. So I can be there for him as he grows. .
Y’all it’s never too late to be your best. Is it harder at this age? Of course it is but it is possible. Will it maybe take a little longer? Maybe. But everyday you CAN get stronger. .
Everyday you can start exactly where you are. Barely able to get up and going (especially after you have sat awhile am I right? - getting old isn’t easy) or if you are a marathon runner but want to add some weight training. .
Find your why and determine to be your best. This is one of my many whys. Isn’t he the cutest?
Well check. 4 months 15 pounds and absolutely perfect! #fitover50#fitgrandma#findyourwhy#theydeservemybest#grandsons#healthylifestyle#youcanmakeachange#nevertoolatetostart
I love this quote. I work hard at quieting the voices of doubt, fear and insecurity about myself. I know that what I think I will come to believe so I'm careful. BUT THIS is so much more than that! Intentionally seeing the beauty in someone else when they can't see it for themselves is a gift! ⏺️ How would your day look differently if you purposefully looked for the good in others - and TOLD them what you see? (Can you almost fell the joy that would come?)⏺️ How could you impact their day just by sharing a few words of encouragement? (Wow! EVERYONE is struggling and you could be the Light that they desperately need.) Let's do this together. Be intentional. Live well.
Did you know:..
*️⃣108 million Americans are on a diet..
*️⃣ Approximately 75% of ALL diseases could be prevented with better nutrition & habits..
*️⃣ 9 out of 10 woman are UNHAPPY with their appearance..
*️⃣ 81% of 10 year old girls have a fear of being fat!!!!!..
And people wonder why I’m so passionate about what I do!!!!.
3️⃣&4️⃣ got me and probably because they are real for me!!! We’ve all been on diets but I was that unhappy woman, and I God knows I was that 10yr old girl!!.
I need YOU to know that you are worth it!!. Your health is worth it, and the only thing you will gain is the confidence to feel beautiful!!.
AND if your “10yr old” girls see you doing it, they won’t know any other way!!!!..
Maybe I can’t change the world, but I’m sure gonna help anyone I can feel comfortable in their own skin again!!!.
Monday I’m taking it back to basics with the program that helped me lose 40 pounds - are you ready to join me?!?!?!.
More wise words from Dave Chapman of @longwindfarm and founder of @realorganicproject:
This week a study came out in the highly respected Journal of the American Medical Association. Scientists found a reduced risk of cancer in people who consumed more organic food. The study took place in France.
It is not a shock that eating fewer biocides reduces the risk of cancer. Eating fewer poisons also reduces the risk of many other diseases.
But now we must start to qualify such studies, saying that a regular diet of “EU organic food” can significantly lower your risk of cancer. Because the meaning of the word “organic” is quite different in the EU than it is for the USDA. In the US, CAFO and hydro production are now being certified by the USDA as “organic,” regardless of public opinion or the law. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Clearly, CAFOs and hydroponics are prohibited by the language of the Organic Food Production Act. The EU has acted to prohibit these conventional ways of producing food from “their” organic.
The distinction between “EU Organic” and “USDA Organic” is significant. “EU Organic” still believes that a healthy soil provides superior nutrition. That leads to greater health in plants, animals, and humans. This is a very important distinction. Deep Organic has always held the belief that food grown in healthy, fertile soil is actually GOOD for you. It is good medicine. The meager claim of Shallow Organic (now known as USDA Organic) is that this food doesn’t make you sick.
So does the research done in France reveal a negative response to pesticides? But it also might be showing a positive response to antioxidants and other bionutrients that include potent anticarcinogens. And some of those antioxidants and bionutrients will be missing from food grown in a hydroponic solution or in animals grown in Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations. So the study might have less relevance for those eating a diet of "USDA organic."
This #wanderlustwednesday post is from this past March when I convinced my mom that we could hike up a very steep rock formation in the middle of Texas somewhere on our mother-daughter road trip.
We went slow and steady. We took water breaks. We set short hiking goals. We sat and rested. We enjoyed the view. We made it to the top. And we made it there together!
That’s what I love about hiking and teamwork and collaborative activities in general. It’s not a race. It’s not a competition. It’s about the journey AND the destination. That’s also what I love about accountability groups. They are about lifting others up, reaching goals together, and focusing on long-term successes.
I would love to tell you more about what’s working for me in nutrition and fitness right now. It’s not a magic pill. It’s consistently showing up for yourself and making small, sustainable shifts as you go.
Sorry this post got long, but I just feel so strongly that anyone can do this! Change is possible. Night, y’all!
Speaking about this kind of arguments is something not very common between teens and even the adults are talking everyday e little bit less about this.But I think we should!We should talk about this cause very often people are judged cause they come from countries where some bad things might have happened!Well cause what people EVERY COUNTRY HAS AN HISTORY WHERE MISTAKES HAVE BEEN MADE!In every country there are bad people BUT WE ARE DIFFERENT!WE AIN'T ALL THE SAME!!(rn i'm not going to make any example cause i don't want someone to understand my words uncorrectly😊)!I just want each one of you to find your peace and think that you are different!You can make a change!You are the change!
Lots of love❤💎
