I’ve heard a few people I really admire talk about Mary Oliver’s poetry. I must admit, I wasn’t familiar with it and have been delving into it today. I’m not normally a quote person but this one got me. My only goal in 2019 is to live life fully, not just merely breathe a little...#thoughtprovoking #maryoliver #livefull
Thinking about Sunday Funday ahead... I am not sure when it started but we have been guilty of putting our business and to-do list before our wellbeing. So, with January kicking us into "fresh start mode" we are practicing what we preach and making a concious effort to take time for stepping away from "work" and recharging in the spaces that make us smile. #selfcare
Looking forward to getting out and exploring... more.
Do something nice for YOU this weekend.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!! 💜
All I can do is giggle. I got back from the Happiest Place on Earth (DisneyWorld) on Tuesday. FOUR days ago. I haven’t even touched my suitcase to unpack. Who does that?! After playing with Mickey, work has waited patiently for my arrival. All good things that I love, so I’m not complaining. GX teaching this week, preparing for a fantastic 6 week nutrition challenge with a local gym, and working for a foundation that I absolutely love has my love cup overflowing. So, the things that I don’t love get to wait another day. Or two. Okay, who are we kidding?! It’ll be next week. 😂😂😂 Have you noticed my Christmas stockings are still hanging??!!! I hope you all are doing things that give you complete and organic JOY!! #livefull #livefullnutrition #happiestplaceonearth #joy #dowhatyoulove #lovewhatyoudo #workworkwork #nutrition

Progress pic. Man...I dont even know what to say but YAAAAAY. I've done 5 days of my new program and my body is already responding. Things are tightening up. I'm losing the weight I want at a natural pace while remaining fueled. And...drum roll please...I am NOT modifying. I've told myself for so long I had to...and in some cases I definitely did but theres something different about using this step. I AM DOING THIS. I may not be able to go to the floor in a pushup but I'm freaking ON MY TOES. I cannot wait to see this transformation, y'all.
Yesterday I was having a super productive morning (which does NOT happen often, hello two kids). Getting laundry done, decluttering, cleaning, accomplishing all the things. Well the sun was out and Hagen wanted to go jump on his new "tampoween". Being the awesome mother I am, I told him not now and tried to distract him with "helping me". Finally after him asking over and over again I gave in and set down the laundry, a little annoyed that this was taking me away from checking things off my to do list.
My goodness. As soon as we got on the trampoline Hagen's eyes lit up like a Christmas tree. We jumped and laughed and ran away from the lions, then we were the lions, then we ran away again.
It's true, it's life-giving to have a clean, picked up house and clean clothes but MAN I nearly missed out on the biggest blessing yesterday and such fun quality time with my big boy. This time with him is so fleeting and the laundry will always be there. We came inside with red cheeks and FULL hearts and I'm so thankful. Don't miss the trees for the forest my friends.

Grateful I get to be Dad and take my kid places and collect experience that once dreamed about. Not everyone gets to do it but I pray for the best in everyone. And hope that what one wishes and works for they get one day just as I prayed and wished. I just want my Son to grow up and know that i gave my all to see Him have things that were available and all i had to do was the work. But I can promise without the work wishful thinking is just wishful thinking with no action behind it!

Y’all i had an ugly cry today in the middle of my workout 🏋️♀️ I’m not kidding... It was a release I needed of pent up fears and worries and all sorts of mess that was swirling inside.
Like my trainer said... It’s not a transformation photo... It’s more than an after... It’s right now you guys.
I have big goals and big dreams this year.
For my family
For my team
For my challengers
For my personal health
And i know they are rooted 🌳 and were planted on my heart ❤️ But i also know they will only happen is 8 learn to arise to the challenge of letting go... And abide in the ONE who has placed this God sized dream on my heart... So today when I wanted to give up. I did one more. And then another and then another... I cried in thanksgiving that this is how I have learned to handle the worry... In a Romans 12:1-2 sort of way.
My workout today was a prayer... I pray to make it that daily. I pray for those who need this that is helps you to see that you can find that freedom too.
Who knew 2 minutes and a step could deliver me such a grace filled moment 🙌🙌❤️❤️.
Ta hand om dig själv, ta hand om din familj, ta hand om alla underbara människor runt omkring dig som finns där, som ställer upp, som får dig att skratta så att du får ont i magen ibland, som får dig att gråta för att du önskar dem all världens lycka men de själva glömmer bort hur värdefulla de är ibland.
Ibland måste man våga ta steget utan support från de man älskar och respekterar, utan någons tillåtelse och utan att någon mer än just man själv tror på det man gör. Sluta försöka passa in i boxen, sluta försöka ta dig utanför boxen. Det finns ingen box. Det finns bara möjligheter och ett helt liv av upplevelser, av upp och nedgångar, av glädje och tårar, av mod och av rädsla.
Sluta vänta på att rädslan ska försvinna. Det är inte kärlek när människor klamrar sig fast vid varandra i ett hörn tillsammans och ser livet rusa förbi. Det är heller inte mod att vänta på att rädslan ska försvinna innan man vågar ta ett steg ut i kaoset av upp och ner som just är livet.
Att vara modig handlar om att ta rädslan i ena handen och all passion, allt driv och all längtan i andra handen - och hoppa.
Det finns människor i din närhet som iaktar dig och den dagen du vågar följa ditt hjärta så skänker du dem en gnutta hopp om att de kanske också kommer våga en dag. Så när du inte orkar göra det för dig själv ibland, för det för dem, gör det för oss. Du är helt fantastisk. Glöm aldrig det. 💚

I’ve been a little slow on my insta lately. Honest: I just didn’t have anything to say.
(And I’ve been getting the new ‘Spring ‘19 @melanieauldjewelry
wholesale season started. So my work has been keeping me on my toes (& I’m super excited about the new collections!)
I guess what I mean, is that I don’t want to just post for the sake of posting, but to post when I have a message or something on my mind.
My hips have been bothering me a lot lately so I started to do yoga. AND it’s really helping me! I mean...better than a Percocet (yeah, I take one from time to time because of the bone damage and drug side effects).
I’ve also been reading more lately and leaving my phone on random surfaces and forgetting about it. AND, that’s awesome!! To not see the screen light up with little urgencies.
Ok, long-winded. My message today: sometimes a disconnect is good. I only want to post what connects to my mind and makes me happy and makes other people happy too (hopefully) ❤️

Good food and good friends are crucial to a having a good life
Sometimes you just need to go to the throne room and sit with your King so he can remind you whose you are... Walking away giving so much thanks for Mercy that is new every moment... We all have bad days. We even can have bad seasons... But they usually are right before growth. When you are wrestling with letting go of something or needing to heal... My advice... Go to the healer and let him operate on you with his gentle hands of truth ❤️. Trust in Him and know he is gentle and loving and kind.
Praying for that mamma who maybe is in one of those seasons... You are not alone. He is with you 💕.
Need a gift? Need a card? How about both in one? ✌️🌸✨

I've toyed with the idea over the last year of fully investing in coaching but I was scared. Scared of being judged, mocked, not fit enough, you name it. Scared that people would think I was just trying to suck them into a pyramid scheme (that's what Charles called it). .
This year, I've just decided to be bold. To fully immerse myself in what I love and that's supporting women find joy in their fitness journey with accountability and grace. To help them take better care of themselves so they can serve others with joy. .
Everyday, members of our #ladyfitgang
post their workouts and meals for accountability. In the nooks and crannies of my own day, I am building a recipe index and meal plans that I can share in a FREE community that can become your own personal Recipe Box (you know, like the old school paper ones we used to have).
It's mid-January. If you have already quit on yourself and your New Year's Resolution, I've got a group that can help you stay on track. If you are looking to get fit and help others do that too, let's talk about it. .
Bottom line. Be bold. Go for what you want and love every minute of it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

There's so much to say about focus.
I'm going to keep it short though... Think about it, we know the quote "what you focus on you give power to". What are you giving power to?
You get to choose👊🏼

Did you know You can do hard things... Why do we forget that? 🙌We have overcome so many things. We have gotten up so many times from failures and being knocked down by life... 👉🏻Some of us have physically been broken and worn by life... And guess what? 💥We are still here. 👉🏻So why when we have big goals or hopes or dreams do we freeze... 👉🏻Why do we remember the failure but forget the lesson? 👉🏻Why do we keep a record of wrong...instead of a record of right?
NEWSFLASH: It’s not pride to think of yourself as strong. It’s actually giving yourself the honor you deserve because YOU are a daughter of a King 👑. 👉🏻So that personal goal you have for your health? 👉🏻That business goal you have set for this year? 👉🏻That goal for your family to be debt free, more peaceful, more connected, fill in the blank ____. 👉🏻 that opportunity you have wanted to give a go... It’s possible. 👉🏻But it takes more than belief. 👉🏻It takes more than writing it down once. 🙌It takes daily writing it down. Daily abiding in grace. Daily getting up when you fall on your face. 🙌It takes being surrounded by others to remind you what you are fighting for. What matters. What doesn’t matter. And what is true. 🙌And it takes surrender of the BS that says you can’t. Surrender of that comfort zone you live in... But it’s possible my friend. I’m pumped for my 2019... I’m nervous 😬
I’m excited 😆
I’m happy 😃
I’m scared 😱
But most of all... I’m committed to where I am going. And I want you to take time to commit to you too... What is God laying on your heart? ❤️. If you didn’t have that worry or fear what would you do?
And if I can help...I’m here to help my friend.
If this mamma of 7 can do it...why not you? Even better, why not together ❤️❤️.
