Thankful Thursday – Busy Schedules

If you have these kind of people in your life, be thankful and apprecative of them! These are the keepers – we are ALL busy, but there is something to be said for a ride-or-die friend who makes the love and support happen no matter what.

I have a lot of these people in my life and I could not be more grateful for, of appreciative of, these treasures. I am a lucky girl, and I know it!

Fierce Friday – Three Letters

Kara Claudia Rebecca WHY

One word, 3 letters – W H Y?
For the freedoms – time, money, choice… all of them.
For the feel-good feelings of knowing I helped people.
For the friendships, team-building, bonds, and connections.
For the empowerment.
For the ability to live my life by design.
For me. For my family.
For my own health.
Some people dream it, some people do it. I have always been a dreamer, but fortunately, I am also a doer!
No, it’s not always easy (because nothing worth having is, as we all know), and yes, sometimes I do let doubt creep in — and then I promptly kick that out,  because there is no room for doubt – none!
And no, it’s not for everyone — you have to be willing to work hard and step by step instead of expecting it to materialize overnight… but YES, it’s WORTH IT.
If you’d like to take control and design your life, let’s chat – you CAN do this, and I CAN help you!

Merry Christmas!

Dear readers, merry merry Christmas!

I hope your day is wonderful, blessed, full of love and celebration with your family and friends, and also a day when you take a second to realize how lucky we are!

The grind is over, we can sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labor (and Santa’s!), and enjoy spending time with our loved ones.

I hope you all have a blessed Christmas!


Friday Fit Tip – Workout Buddy

Okay yes, some people really do need a workout buddy to keep them in the moment, motivated, and on track. I know plenty of people like this. I prefer working out alone (though I am certainly not opposed to group workouts or a buddy joining me – I am just usually solo for my workouts), but there are some people who need a buddy. And that’s okay!

Todays fit tip is super simple, yet makes a huge difference. A workout buddy is hugely helpful for keeping motivated, but it’s important to find someone who will inspire—not discourage. So make a list of all your exercise-loving friends, then see who fits this criteria. Can your pal meet to exercise on a regular basis? Is he/she supportive (not disparaging) of your goals? And last, will your bud be able to keep up with you or even push your limits in key workouts? If you’ve got someone that fits all three, make that phone call.
It works both ways – you help each other stay on track, and that’s a win. Do you prefer to workout alone, or with a buddy, or in a group?
