Great way to start a beautiful Sunday!

Ever have one of those mornings where nothing seems to be going right?? As a result, I was super snippy with my boys this morning.
I really wasn’t nice.
When they left for school and I got up to go eat, this is the note I find on the refrigerator from my 16 year old.
My goodness....like a sucker punch in the abdomen.
Thank you Luke for changing my mindset, my morning, my day. You are such a good son. @lukeflaig16
How can one orange post it note put everything back into perspective?
Haven’t swam in 2 1/3 years..... But had a BLAST with this gal this morning at 5AM! @amandastroud12
2,200 yard swim
🏊🏻♀️🏊🏻♀️🏊🏻♀️🏊🏻♀️🏊🏻♀️🏊🏻♀️🏊🏻♀️🏊🏻♀️🏊🏻♀️🏊🏻♀️ Underwater photo shoot was a blooper series of funny pics! 🤣
Luke doesn’t have many pictures in his room, but this is one that is framed on his dresser.
14 years ago.
I never asked why he chose to have this one displayed?? Maybe it is a happy photo before his little brothers came into his world?
Maybe it is because he really doesn’t remember his parents being together, and this one is a good memory?
Maybe it is because he likes to see his dad with a mustache 🤣? I really don’t know, because I have never asked him.
But one thing I do know is that he makes sure to have it on his dresser each time we have moved houses.
It must mean a lot to him.
Just because you get divorced, doesn’t mean that you can’t have pictures up from the past.
We had many good memories as a family of just the 3 of us. 👪
LOVE my mornings with these 3 boys! 🕓 Woke up at 4:22AM (yes, I am a bit weird when it comes to wake up times 😜)
🕔 At gym by 5:15 for Savage Chest workout 💪🏻
🕡 20 min pool sprints 🏊🏻♀️
🕖 Home by 6:50 to make boys their protein shakes—- Mocha, Chocolate Mint, and Cookies & Cream 🥤🥤🥤
🕢 Talked to boys about love languages and I learned A LOT about them this morning! 👫Luke: Quality Time 💏 Noah: Physical Touch and Words of Affirmation 👫Dakota: Quality Time and Words of affirmation
🕗 Off to school with fist bumps 👊🏻 (Luke), and hugs and kisses 💋 (twins)
Mornings, before school are my favorite time of the day with the boys! We have the best conversations!
You know the best part about this picture?
It was given to me with love ❤️ from a friend I just met this year, that I really couldn’t imagine not having in my life!
She is in her 20’s. I am in my 40’s.
She grounds me.
She is like a little sister to me.
I learn so much from her and her never ending giving heart.
She leads and lives the Carpenter way of life. (If you have never read The Carpenter, you MUST read it 📙) Thank you Anne Higgins for the most thoughtful birthday gift!
Mission accomplished! 💪🏻 I have never attempted HIIT on my bike until today!
2:30 high cadence (rest)
5 min HARD effort
Repeat 4 times.
Sweetie came with me and we pumped these out early this morning!
Tomorrow.....sprints in the pool!
Attitude has changed 100% since Sunday!
I CAN do this! 👠👙 #HiggsLifestyle
Adding this little blue spray bottle to my nightly routine of IsaFlush 💩 Sleep Spray 😴, and lavender oil on the bottoms of my feet 👣. What is in the blue bottle?? I have decided that I am going to jump into all natural deodorant!
And thanks to, Leah Tedrick, she gave me a great tip before trying all natural Young Living deodorant!
You need to detox your armpits before trying natural deodorant.
Who knew?? 🤓 Not me!
For 1 week prior to starting to use natural deodorant you want to spray this mix in your armpits before you go to bed. This mix will help with the detox process, and in a week or 2, your body should be ready to use your new deodorant!
2oz glass spray bottle
1 Tbsp organic Apple Cidar Vinegar
4 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
4 drops Lavender Essential Oil
Fill rest of bottle up with filtered water.
Spray on each armpit right before bed.
Starting tonight in this house!
Anyone else use a Natural Deodorant? Which brand? And did you detox your armpits prior to starting?
Best invention EVER!! Thanks to Julie Everett and her kind heart, I have been using this Cryo Cuff all afternoon while sweetie and I are watching the Hunting Channel 🤣 #CouplesBonding
Determined to get back to normal fast!
Anyone else out there dry brush?? I discovered this gadget and process last week, and I am totally hooked!! Benefits of dry brushing:
👉🏻 Exfoliates the skin
👉🏻 Stimulates circulation
👉🏻 Promotes lymph drainage
👉🏻 Unclogs pores
👉🏻 Eliminates toxins
👉🏻 Makes your skin super soft 👉🏻 May help with decreasing cellulite
There is a proper technique to dry brushing.
Maybe I should do a video?? What a great feeling when you finish dry brushing! No clue why I didn’t discover this sooner?!?! #HiggsLifestyle
All girls need to have that one friend when you are a bit down in the dumps, she comes and picks you up!
This gal 👇🏻👇🏻 is that friend to me!
She dusted her bike 🚴🏻♀️ off, after almost a 2 year hiatus, and we went for a bike ride. (Biking is a painfree activity for me right now)
Raised the heart rate a little. ❤️
Did a lot of chatting about life. 🗣
And took in the beauty of a hot MidWest morning! 🌾🌻☀️ #HiggsLifestyle
Not exactly what I wanted to happen 3 weeks before a show where I have to wear 4 1/2 inch heels. 👠 👉🏻Mountain climbers. 👈🏻 Yep....an exercise I have done thousands of times before, but this time resulted in a plantar fascia tear.
I have treated patients with this diagnosis many times over the years, and they always told me how painful it was. But it is one of those deals that you don’t believe it to be true until it happens to you!
2 weeks, 6 days until my show.
Emotionally, an injury like this is very taxing on a person. Especially when I know where I have to be in just a few weeks.
I need to remain positive.
Have you stepped out of your comfort zone recently?
This suit is WAY out of my comfort zone!
3 weeks 1 day to go!
Mom and dad are driving down to watch their big girl! Can’t wait!
Be Amazing Fitness Weekend in Charlotte, NC.
Our first family photo, just the 4 of us.
Probably the hardest photo shoot I had to do.
What would people think when I sent Christmas cards?
Would people talk about me behind my back?
How can I muster up the strength to move on with my life?
Why did this happen to me?
Could I have done something different to change to end result?
When you are going through a tough time in life, you start questioning everything!
But, 7 years later, I now look at this picture and see it so differently than I did in 2011.
I now see 3 boys that absolutely love their mom, unconditionally.
They didn’t realize emotionally what I was going through.
And how some days, it was hard for me to even function.
But they knew exactly the right thing to do at the right moment.
And that was to love me.
A few of my friends are struggling right now, and all I can say is that I truly understand. I was in your shoes. Time heals the heart, mind, and soul. Please trust me, as I lived it also.
