Since the passing of our beloved #Ikeyboy
just a couple weeks ago... it’s been sad around the house. I told Ike that I would take real good care of Teddy and give him lots of love, attention and exercise! So on Saturday #TeddyElliot
and I hit #WildWoodCanyon
for a 3mi trail run straight up to the top!! Teddy kicked my ass! Haha! He was so happy and grateful! Dogs need exercise too and being out in nature is so healing for the soul... we both needed it! RIP IKE we miss you everyday! @ikeandteddy #trailrun #alexisoleriofitness #natureismyplayground #Burbank
Throwing it back to last week when being upside down wasn’t too bad and snot didn’t run down my face.
As the nights get longer towards the end of November my head starts thinking about winter. I've always preferred the cold and reckon I always will. Here's a throwback to a few years ago at Stob Coire Nan Lochan, my favourite crag with my best mate. The smile didn't last long after I got bitched by Crest Route and limped back to the car with my tail between my legs. Blue skies all day though 🤙

Today I trail-ran for the first time and I also ran 10 km for the first time 🤗 I actually enjoyed it all! Despite having twisted my ankle slightly about 3 km in, the mud, leaves and and tree roots made it more entertaining 🍁🍂 Also very happy because I did it in less than an hour (58 min), which is good for me 😁
I am enjoying running more than ever (I think I never actually enjoyed it before) because I am using it as an excuse to get out among trees, under the sun and breathing fresh air ☀️ I'm going to keep it going, aiming for more trail type parkruns and in 2019 I'm going to participate in a 10 km trail race! 😬🤗 Any recommendations/suggestions? 👟
Some hiking with Hawk in our backyard! So lucky to have this view!
I love hiking. Especially by myself. So I go off the trails a lot to get away from the talkers and the bikers. And so I can have views like this all to myself.
Hiking shifts my energy. Makes me happy. Pushes me beyond my limits. Makes me face my fears. Fear of heights. Fear of animals. Fear of the dark. Sunsets at 6pm here so had to hike back to my car in the dark. Makes me feel victorious. Accomplished. Strong. Peaceful. Amazed by the courageousness and strength of my body. Breath-taken by the beauty all around me. Grateful for the wisdom the Earth shares. A L I V E

It’s cold. And windy..
I don’t like cold and windy. 😒
At the theater with my sister from another mister. My BFF. My ride or die. About to destroy a box of junior mints and watch The Nutcracker!
This is an amazing little book. It’s titled Bliss. And it’s a perfect addition to my self care moment of relaxation on my @ajnawellbeing
acupressure mat along with my super soft blanket. As a Mother, I take all the moments for Me I can snatch. And today, this one was perfect. It was just what I needed and wanted and now, I’m up and getting snacks for the littles while they talk to me a mile a minute and I decipher what it is I’m actually hearing. .
Here’s to all the Parents out there doing your best and 9 out of 10 times thinking “WTF just happened?” #notanad
To those who saw my video and responded with words of love and support, thank you. Yesterday was such a whirlwind. One minute I’m halfway through my run down Soldiers Trail and the next minute I’m doing all I can to find my breath while watching my son get loaded onto a board into an ambulance. .
I know it was weird to ask for prayers on Instagram. And normally that’s not something I do; Make a video fighting back tears as I’m confused and asking for help. But I believe in God and in prayer. And I didn’t want to freak out my family until I knew what was going on. So I decided I would ask you guys. My Instagram family..
Noah is OK. He suffered a concussion and when he came to, was unable to move. The school nurse and principal called the ambulance and then called me. We were at the hospital for six hours. He has no spinal injuries and everything is OK. It could have gone so badly. This morning I could have woken up and posted a different update but because I believe in prayer and how it works, my son is good. So I just wanna say thank you. For your support. For your prayers. For your virtual hugs and good vibes. They were felt and they worked.
Kenny sent me this crop tank. He’s the best. I’m happy. That is all.

is a pose of our choosing and to answer two questions. Standing split. Long way to go. Long way already traveled..
1. Something you don’t like about yourself. I judge myself too harshly. Not myself as a person or a parent but about what I look like. It’s my body really. I don’t like my stomach. It’s bigger than I’d like and it’s not in shape. I realize how vein this sounds. And you know what? I don’t like that either..
2. Something you like about yourself. I know with every fiber of who I am that I am a great mother. Yes I make mistakes. Yes there have been a night here and there where dinner was cereal. But my children are happy and healthy. They are good human beings and they know how supported and loved they are.
