I received this picture from Cody’s dad the other morning ♥️ I can’t wait until the next time I get to visit . . . #homeland #homegrown #iowa #midwestgirl #gypsysoul #wildheart
. . Our family took a little road trip this weekend...which also means we were in the car 🚗 a lot! . . Once we got home, my hubby and I felt like we needed to do a short workout, and get our bodies moving for the Thanksgiving week!! Mentally, I was struggling to do it, but I knew my body would thank me after. 😁 . . I am ready to tackle this week, and everything that goes with it! 🍽🥧 . . #midwestmarriage #husbandandwife #letsworkout #strength #strong #healthylifestyle #goals #lifegoals #godfearingwoman #midwestmom #midwestgirl #midwestmommy #girlmom #boymom #mommyof2 #mommylife #mommyoftwo #faithfitness #faithjourney #faith #faithoverfear #fitmom #balance #gracefullyimperfectproject #midwestlife
Did you know I thought coaching was this big responsibility that I had to take on and I wouldn’t have the time for so I said no to it so many times. Little did I know that coaching would change the part of my life that I struggled so much with! I was not a motivated person who liked health and fitness. I needed to get up earlier and make the most of my days. I needed to do devotions and personal development daily to help me to focus on positivity and not let all the negative thoughts take over. I needed to eat healthy and exercise daily but most importantly I needed to live life with purpose. Not just go through the motions. Yes I’m busy with so much things going on but in the craziness I was forgetting to take care of myself and teach others to do the same. THAT is what coaching is!! Not some big commitment or time consuming ordeal but a group of people supporting and encouraging each other to be better then they were yesterday. To get that workout In and eat right even when life is crazy. Wouldn’t it be more to fun to do a job that you can get healthy, in shape, work from home, travel perks and rewards and make all these amazing friends? I know that is my dream job!!
Some days I forget that I have cut most sugar out of my diet.... because these taste SO AMAZING. My husband always jokes about my extreme protein bar obsession, but to me they are a perfect replacement for candy bars and desserts. Filling, full of flavor, and low in sugars - I am always able to satisfy my sweet tooth 🥰 . Comment below your favorite type of protein bar! And tag a friend who is also OBSESSED! ⬇️⬇️⬇️
Feels after this beautiful Sunday ^^ —— I hopped into my free group LIVE tonight to share why the heck these groups are even worth your time✨ What a full circle moment. I’ve been hosting this group this weekend with MY coach and boss babe @leannasowards who got ME started on my journey. She hosted one of these groups last winter on a trip she WON with the other boss babes and stole my heart💕 And the rest is history. Literally😛 Because now I’M doing the same thing: sharing my story and hoping you have a story to share, too💫 Tonight is the last call to join my November boot camp and get your free headband and water bottle logo to show for it🥰 Shoot me a quick message if you’re interested bc I’m putting in an order for my other girls’ gifts ASAP and wanna include yours too! I never thought I’d make it this far and be hosting my own groups, but these girls didn’t give up on me. And we won’t give up on YOU. . . . . #teamroottorise #teamwholehearted #teamshowupstrong #workfromwifi #loveyourlife #lovetheskinyourein #findwhatmakesyouhappy #findyourtrube #workfromhome #fightforyourdreams #chaseyourdreams #dontgiveup #mismissouri #shoplocalcomo #midwestgirl #countrygirl #citygirl #womenempoweringwomen
One day at a time, with the hopes that tomorrow will always be better than yesterday. 🙏🏼
You are just 28 days and a decision away from your goals. 👊🏻 . . Can we talk about time and perception? 28 days is a really short amount of time. Blink...and it passes. We think that not much can change in just 28 days. . . Because it passes quickly, it’s easy to believe that it’s not enough time to make real progress or change in our health. Tackling our health seems like a GIGANTIC task and 28 days isn’t enough,right? . . The truth is you can make HUGE progress in 28 days. When you aren’t just winging it, when you have a plan and you follow it, you can absolutely make HUGE progress in under a month. . . We also overestimate how much of our time during those 28 days that it takes to make progress. There are 672 hours in 28 days. I spent 2% of those hours exercising. 13 total. 15-50 min a day, 6 days a week, in my spare bedroom with no equipment but a set of light dumbbells. . . 28 days ago I shared that I had gotten pretty lax on my nutrition on the weekends. I was still working out every day, eating well all week, but weekends were a lot of junk and meals out. Way too much sugar. I was just feeling bloaty and sluggish. I knew it was time and I knew exactly what to do. 28 days of eating EXACTLY what my body needed. . . How do I know exactly what to eat to get these results? And exactly what exercise to do? Well, I don’t wing it. I have a system that never ever fails me. I don’t just diet and exercise. I FUEL & TRAIN for results. . . I feel AMAZING today. 28 days. -7.7 lbs. Abs are peeking. 🙌🏻 Junk cravings gone. Habits strong! . . My group is going strong heading into this holiday. You can jump in now, start with us next week, and before the new year make HUGE progress toward your goals. 28 days is more than enough time, if you trust me and let me show you how. . . My virtual fit club is on sale this month. And starting tomorrow I have a Pre-Black Friday 48 hour sale for additional savings. . . Wanna check it out? Drop me a message, a comment or an emoji and I’ll get you details! You can totally do this girl! 👊🏻
HALFWAY DONE! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here’s the deal. I’m doing this holiday season a little unconventionally. I’m not focusing on being 100% with my fitness and nutrition because I don’t want any feelings of guilt if I sway from my plan. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But I’m also not completely abandoning my healthy lifestyle until 2019. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Instead, I’m focusing on FEELING good and letting my body’s outside follow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The good news is that after four weeks, this strategy seems to be working. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Looking for three more women to join our virtual gym this month (and take advantage of the $20 off sale). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ll help you pick a program that fits with your goals and your schedule through these next few weeks to make sure that you’re ending 2018 feeling like a million bucks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you think you might be one of those three, comment below and I’ll send you some more info so you can decide!
@thedoctorbae My Vikings play today. What team you rooting for? 😈🏈💜P.S. being a Vikings fan is apparently so stressful that my toes get tangled up with one another.

Sunday night vibes ❤️🔥✌🏻 #gritandgrace #bethatgirl #farmhouseliving #sundayvibes
What if someone near and dear to you pulled out a photo of you from 2019 and you are the HAPPIEST you have ever been. You look incredible, clear face, clear eyes, etc.. . And then they told you, you WILL look like this one year from today IF you live intentionally. You focus on living a life of positivity, what's goes in your mouth, and have a passion! They promised you! . If you KNEW you'd look like that- the happiest, brightest, feeling the best...would you give the next 12 months your ALL??
🎶Cause I've had the time of my life...and I owe it all to YOU! 🎶 . We laugh together, parent together, eat together, cuddle together, talk together, and pretty much everything we do is together! . That sounds like a lot of togetherness, BUT, this weekend we had a chance to get away and REALLY be together for the first time since having our sweet boys. Although we miss them like crazy, we enjoyed our time! Sometimes you don't realize how bad you need something until you have it. Beyond grateful for my man & our marriage. . . . #godisgood #marriagegoals #loveneverfails #weekendgetaway #mommyanddaddy #missthekids #coupletime #coffeedate #togetherness #holiday #babyitscoldoutside #thankful #stronglove #marriedlife #momlife #boymom #newmom #familiesofinstagram #midwestgirl #cozynights
Your Sunday self love reminder 🖤
I had a wonderful Sunday with my husband and puppy! I got a lot done and I’m ready for the SHORT work week ahead. 🙌🏼 I hope you all had a great weekend too 😊 . . #doodlemom #wisconsingirl #weekendvibes #sundayscaries #thanksgivingweek #goldendoodlemom #puppymom #tiuwisconsin #workingwomen #wifelife #wifeylife #newlywedlife #wifedup #sweatingforthewedding #midwestgirl #midwestlife
Hey hey! I haven’t introduced myself in a while so I thought I would do that since I’m seeing some new faces. 😋 . . . I’m Kate. I’m a wife to my wonderful diesel mechanic/technician (this is a joke between us) of a husband, Dusty. We have a beautiful one year old, Ella. I’m a stay at home mom during the day and by night I’m a hairstylist. Hair and helping people are my passion. We live in a small town in southern Wisconsin. I’m pretty basic with what I love: carbs, coffee, Grey’s Anatomy, leggings, wine, carbs, podcasts, Target, and carbs. But I don’t like pumpkin so don’t expect that here. I’ve lost 30 pounds twice with at home workouts and truly believe in them. I’m all about portion control and living life in moderation. Oh and I love to make friends 💕 Come talk to me 😃 . . . #healthyfortheholidays #strongisthenewpretty #wisconsinmom #girlmomma #midwestgirl #girlbosslife #bossbabetribe #fitfamilylife #fitwifehappylife #21dayfixresults
With the holidays right around the corner it’s easy to not try , to say what’s the point? There is no point to settle for less, than your best. Let’s be honest, excuses lead to giving up . Your are more than what you are. We give work , relationships , school etc everything we have. So why sell ourselves short when it comes to health? Yes, it’s a little investment, yes it takes 30 mins out of our day, yes , it takes a little discipline,BUT aren’t you worth it. It’s hard to invest in your self when you doubt yourself. You can’t be cheap when it comes to health. Your life literally depends on. I have discounts for you in all areas. I have something for you. You just have to ask. Take advantage now, and save it for January when the gyms are crazy busy , you are emptied from Christmas, then you remember you invested in yourself earlier and now you can reach your goals. . . . . . #momlife #midwest #girlmomlife #boymom #momlifebelike #girlmom #midwestlife #mompreneur #parenting #minnesota #momboss #momblog #motherhoodunplugged #fitmom #workingmom #momofboys #midwestgirl #minneapolis #momofthree #boymomlife #mommies #paperroses #minnesotaparent #minnesotamom ##mommylife #missourimom

The message at church this morning really hit home with me. Be grateful, always 🖤

Why not get a head start on your goals and go into the new year healthier than you did last year?! My Countdown to New Years bootcamp is enrolling now 💫 time to claim your spot so you can go in to the new year feeling fab! 💃🏼 . . . . . #progress #transformation #fitlife #college #collegegirl #fitness #midwestgirl #collegelife #yougotthis #newyears #hardwork #fitnessjourney #workforit #fitfreak #motivation #fitgirl #goals #noexcuses #strongereveryday #inspiration #girlswithmuscles #strong #countrygirl #fitnessmotivation #fitspiration #ificanyoucan #collegefitnessgirl #girlpower #makeithappen #girlswithtattoos
“Progress not perfection.” . . I’m not trying to be the skinniest or weigh “x” amount of pounds or be the most fit person. I’m trying to be the best version of myself to live my best life. . . Over the past year I’ve tried to strive for progress. Slow and steady, progress. There has been progress and regression, but it’s a journey. Progress isn’t going to happen overnight, but it is going to happen in each choice you make in every moment. . . So are you ready to make progress? Are you ready to make a choice to change your life? . . . Free 14 Day Happy, Healthy Holidays group starts TOMORROW…or 21 days of Giveaways group starts on December 5th!
Curled my hair for family pictures this evening and I'm pretty sure my hair was completely straight again by the time we walked out the door. But I had to document the curls that lasted 30 seconds 😂 . . . #familyphotos #hairstyle #curledhair #straighthair #straighthairproblems #plussize #plussizefashion #familyphotography #photoready #stl #stlouis #midwestgirl

I love sitting back and having a peaceful and relaxing rest day! 😊 Take time for you. It is so important and needed!! 🙌🏼
✨WORK ON YOU, FOR YOU✨⁣ ⁣ Since...forever, I have been working on my fitness! (Trying to achieve that perfect non-existent body) But I wasn't doing it for me. I would have told you I was, but the old me was doing it for others. ⁣ ⁣ I was doing it to seem fit & driven (so other wouldn't think I was lazy) ⁣ ⁣ I was doing it so I'd be seen as worthy. ⁣ ⁣ I was doing it so that those closest to me would have something to be proud of me for. ⁣ ⁣ ‼️Y'all! If this is you...please 👏🏼STOP👏🏼!⁣ ⁣ You won't get that happiness or fulfillment you're looking for, until you are doing it for YOU. I now do it because I know how proud I feel when I keep a promise to myself, when I kick butt in a new program, crush my goals & when I feel freaking good in my clothes! ⁣ ⁣ Only once your cup is full can you pour over into those around you! It's time to make yourself a priority and do this for YOU!💪🏼⁣ ⁣ Reach out to me and I'll get ya in the club sister! I'll get you started on your journey! 💕🤝⁣
This last week was hard for me. Stressed out would describe me every day. Between over sleeping on multiple occasions (hopefully fixed with a new phone charger) and just a busier than usual season, I was drained. . But this morning during my personal devotions and in church I was reminded to come to Jesus for living water. . It's this living water that will fill me completely. It will satisfy my every need. When I come to God first, his grace will only over flow to every other part of my life. . It's amazing what you can hear from God when you only need to listen.

I was a guest speaker in another coaches page this afternoon and it was EXACTLY what I needed to get my energy up and work the afternoon away! However, I added in a scoop of energize and needed to burn off some energy with a quick workout ☺️ • Time to work on something SPECIAL for you for the holidays 🎄❤️ • • • • • • • • #holidayhustle #coachlife #strongvibetribe #sundayvibes #blackfridaysale

I used to roll my eyes at the girls sitting behind computers, “working” from home, and calling health and fitness their job 🙄 - Now I’m one of those girls you see behind a computer💻, working in health and fitness from home🤙🏼, calling it my side gig—are you rolling your eyes at me like I used to do? 😆 - I’m PROUD to be a part of this company who dedicates themselves to making this world healthier & happier ✨ I’m so glad I took the leap! I’m was able to find friendships👯‍♀️, a passion in what I do, work on my own fitness, and make some extra money to save up for that dream home 🏠😍 - Why not you too? 🤷🏻‍♀️
TREAT YOSELF! 🙌🏼❤️ • Enjoying my day off while I sip on my current fav drink from @starbucks It’s an Iced Green Tea Matcha Latte with Soy Milk.

Someone is so excited for his first Christmas with us 😍 When we got Malachi, Paul picked him up on New Years Eve so we didn’t get to spoil him with presents...but this year, I have a feeling this will be his best Christmas yet!

The thing about results is that it takes time.. and consistency. . And while those things aren’t always “fun” or “exciting”... they’re worth it 💕 .

1 day till I’m back home where I belong with this sweet boy! It’s been nice to have some time as just husband and wife on this trip, but I’m ready to be back to being mom and dad!
Where’s my outgoing introverts at? 🙋🏼‍♀️ This is my busy, busy, busyyyyy season and while i love it i KNOW i need quiet time. It’s taken me a long time to understand as much as i love social situations & people, it’s VERY draining on me emotionally. I literally need quiet, uninterrupted down time to recharge. ✨ I slept in today, have my salt lamp glowing & am enjoying church and coffee on the couch. Sometimes i struggle with the guilt of needing alone time but ultimately i know I’m better when i have it. What helps you find a way to recharge? I’d love your suggestions. 👇🏻🖤
I had one of these moments this morning. ☺️ . The past week has not been ideal when it comes to nutrition. I ate. A lot. 😜 . Thankfully, the majority of the food was healthy-ish. The chips, salsa, & guac...not so much. 🤷🏼‍♀️ . But, as I was getting my jeans on this morning and realized they were loose, I did a little happy dance! I then looked at my stomach in the mirror and had a flash back to about a year and a half ago when I started this journey. My body has COMPLETELY changed. . Yep, I’m killing it! 😆 . I want to help you feel this pride and confidence in yourself! Now is the time to do it! Why wait till January 1st?? Make yourself a priority TODAY and start crushing your goals! ❤️
Meal prepping has been the game changer for me. It’s truly got me to my goals. It takes me an hour or two that’s annoying to be prepared for the week . Even though it’s a holiday week and a short week I could use it as every excuse to just not care and fall off track . On Thanksgiving, I will be eating all the food. The rolls, the stuffing, the pie! Until then we just stay on track as best as we can . That’s living your life balanced and still enjoying your favorites yet hitting your goals . Are you meal prepping this week?? Tell me.. what’s on your menu?
3 going on 14. That’s how this niece of mine is. I LOVED having her here overnight. She is a toddler and sometimes she cries and throws fits about things like having to wear clothes. But she also brings so much JOY to my life 💗 her eyes shine with wonder at the things I take for granted. She laughs hysterically at simple pleasures. She is my little buddy, and I love her so, so much ❤️ . . . . . . #thankfulandblessed #thankfuleveryday #thankfulheart #youmakemebrave #setfree #curlyhaired #curlyhaircare #coffeegirl #coffeelifestyle #ineedmorecoffee #outdoorsygirl #countrygirlforlife #midwestgirl #countrygirlatheart #alwayscooking #midwestlove #lovemichigan #mittenstatelove #mittenlife #auntlifeisthebestlife #auntstatus #coolaunt #mechanicswife #smiletoday #smileisfree #stayhumbleandkind #happygirlsareprettygirls #alwaysbepositive #happilyelizabethfreed
