It has been a while since I have posted anything. Or anything of value... I give fast pace glimpses of my life through insta story. Although fun, my life has way more depth then I give credit to and what I share. I will do better at slowing down and sharing what's on my mind heart more often. With that said here is something of meaning. . . Long story short: . We are doing 22 pushups for 22 days to help raise awareness for military suicide. (A young gentleman in a grip chat I'm in mentioned to the group to add this to our routine.) . . I post shorter clips in my story along with suicide hotlines. If you ever get in that mindset military or not definitely text or call some of these numbers. If you need an ear to listen you can message me personally. I am not a professional but I can be that stepping stone for that courage to find some help. . . On the second video we decided to say what we are thankful for with each pushup. I really think it's important to say out loud or write down things you are grateful for in your life. Keeping your mental health up to par can be difficult at times. I Just wanted you to know that you are not alone. . .

Well, here it is folks! My first time being a guest on a hunting cast. To say I was nervous is an understatement... . . I really am humbled and absolutely appreciate all of the support from my friends, family and hunting community! All the encouraging words and advice over the last few years about this journey of becoming a hunter, has been motivating and inspiring! I am nowhere close to where I want to be as a hunter. But I'm not giving up. I hope I did a satisfactory job telling a little bit of my story and my "why" behind hunting. I truly appreciate you all! . . Bruce from @whitetailrendezvous is a master at making it easy and comfortable as he leads the cast in to a good conversation, getting a little peek in to my life and how I started hunting. . . Thank you again for having me on and I'm looking forward to future casts with you! . . Link in my bio, to head straight over and listen to the episode. You can also find it on many podcast platforms as well as his YouTube channel. . . @thewildinitiative you are mentioned, as well as @followherarrow ♡ . . #rideordie #momlife #momoffive #greatful #family #livebigorgohome #outdoorsismylife #hungryforlife #pnw #pacificnorthleft #lifteachotherup #motivation #keeppushingforward #keephammering #BFORWARDFITNESS #HUNTHARDHUNTPROUD #huntingseasoniscoming #podcasts #huntingcommunity #camaraderie

Was such a great, much needed weekend in beautiful central Oregon! Beautiful weather, beautiful views, beautiful people and just an all around feeling of release, relaxing, time to think and time on the trail to hone in more on building my riding skills. . . P.s. Thank you so much mom @bluesbaby53 and Justin for all the meat! It's soooo yummy! . . #rideordie #momlife #momoffive #greatful #family #livebigorgohome #outdoorsismylife #hungryforlife #pnw #pacificnorthleft #lifteachotherup #motivation #keeppushingforward #keephammering #BFORWARDFITNESS #braplife #whenindoughtthrottleout #followyourdreams #ilivefortheoutdoors #theoutdoorsisapartofme #easternoregonhasmyheart #centraloregon #greenmachine #dirtbikegirl #girlswithbikes #trails #dirtonthetires #mudonthetires #klx125 #letsride

December is here!! . . The big Holidays are upon us and as quickly as they arrive they quickly disappear. It's been amazing spending much needed time with family and friends this season, getting extremely full on tons of food! . . But It's also been a bit difficult, after losing my aunt only a few months ago... first holidays without the people you love are always difficult. Her birthday would be this month as well... but knowing my aunt and how she was, she would tell us to keep our chins up and don't stop doing the things you love. I push forward for many reasons, but today the top reason is because I know my aunt would kick my ass if she saw that I wasn't up for the challenges. . . So, here is to pushing forward in all the challenges that life brings. Here is to all the loved ones here or not. If you need someone to vent to I'm here for you. Life is supposed to be shared not just holidays. I hope you enjoy your day and keep pushing forward. . . #rideordie #momlife #momoffive #greatful #family #livebigorgohome #outdoorsismylife #hungryforlife #pnw #pacificnorthleft #lifteachotherup #motivation #keeppushingforward #keephammering #BFORWARDFITNESS #swollife #gymlife #strongwoman #strength #coffee #truegrit #nevergiveup #flexeveryday #kickyourownass

When we go out riding, I can't help but to be in my own head. I can't think too much about anything else besides what obstacles I'm facing on the trail and my bike. But there are moments where I ask myself why I love to ride? . . I realized that anything that challenges me and my abilities, mentally and physically, things that are hard are things I enjoy most. Especially when it's outdoors. . . Riding dirt bikes (anything outdoors) makes you a better person. What I'm trying to get at is, that everything I do outdoors weather it's hunting, riding, hiking etc. They all have a few things in common. They push my limits. They test my strength physically and mentally. None of these adventures will let me quit. You hike/climb what seems like endless miles into the wilderness, you can't just give up. You still have miles to get back to the parking lot or camp. Your legs are burnt out? The mountain doesn't care. You ride miles in to the forest, you crash your bike and it still runs, you get back on that bike and ride. You let go of the mistakes or accidents and keep looking forward. You literally have no other option but to keep going. . . Trust me there are always tears shed and frustrations and obstacles. But as soon as you finish what you had set out to do and then some! It's a feeling that's hard to describe. You look back on the trail you accomplished. You remember the things you once couldn't do before, but now you kicked it's ass! Obstacles may be scary or frustrating in the moments that they are happening. But those challenges are molding you, pushing you and creating a stronger you. I love the outdoors no matter what it is. But coming to a better realization of why I love these adventures so much is mind blowing. Also sharing them with others that do and feel the same way. Priceless. . . We all start somewhere. And I'm excited for more obstacles to face on the trail. To become stronger and challenge myself to larger heights. On and off the trail. . . Here's to all of your adventures! May they be hard, may they shed light in to your life. May they challenge your limits and show you how strong you really are. . #rideordie #momoffive #livebigorgohome

I've been thinking about this move for a while now. Thought I'd give it a shot. . . A couple things that made me think of trying this, is the awesome @lorinjlynch and all of his balance strengthening! If you haven't checked his page out you should. . . The second reason is, that no matter what heavy leg workout I do to strengthen, I don't have the stamina in my legs like I want. When riding dirt bikes, it drives me nuts that my legs burn out! It can be challenging, between the standing balance, and squeezing the bike while bracing for bumps, rocks etc. On the trail. So, I figured this is the closest I could get to recreating that feeling. This video is my first attempt but the sets after I got better with each one. I tried slow squats, faster pace etc. Did as many reps as I could in 4 sets.. . . It felt amazing! I really think this is going to help my stamina. What I didn't anticipate is the foot muscles and calves getting a killer workout! My feet apparently need some work as well. . . I have some ideas in the books for multiple things. Although it's slow moving, I'm grateful it is moving forward. . . #rideordie #momlife #momoffive #greatful #family #livebigorgohome #outdoorsismylife #publicland #BHA #hungryforlife #pnw #pacificnorthleft #lifteachotherup #motivation #keeppushingforward #keephammering #BFORWARDFITNESS #swollife #gymlife #strongwoman #strength #PRACTICEMAKESPROGRESS #workdontwhine #imbusy #+1 #dirtbikegirl #girlswithbikes #trails #braplife #couplethatridestogetherstaystogether #greenmachine

I have been mauling over what I should post, for days now. I had something written out yesterday but I decided not to post it. No words seem right. . . After a big hike/climb, I go through this "After Summit Blues" for a short time. The emotions I feel are indescribable and sometimes hard to organize and put a name to it. But it usually consists of life and what it means, about how special my family is and the big, deep questions about myself and my purpose. (As a mom of 5 I don't get a ton of time to have lengthy thoughts about anything.)lol . . The trail, the difficulty, the challenges I face on the mountain... it changes something in me every time. It's like I black out the entire climb then a week later it all hits me. This time, it still hit me but I thought I wasn't as excited or grateful enough, that maybe I missed what the mountain taught me... . . I can't ever explain how much I have ALWAYS felt connected to the Wilderness. In short, It's apart of me and when I thought I lost it... I got scared. It made me second guess EVERYTHING I'm doing or not doing. . . But then I look back on the videos that I took of our recent climb and you can HEAR the excitement in my voice! *perspective * There are a lot of things I'm facing here at home on top of life, overwhelming stuff at times and my plate seems to be over flowing. But, I read a post today by the amazing @brandonlilly3 And it kick started me to go through whatever I'm going through. To move forward. "To embrace it all." To not give up because this is where I dreamt of being. The good always comes with the bad but how you perceive it and your reaction to it is the key to your success and continued happiness. I am thankful for all of you folks who lay it all out there, pulling people up even when you feel defeated. Thank you Brandon. . . +1 #rideordie #momlife #momoffive #greatful #family #livebigorgohome #outdoorsismylife #hungryforlife #pnw #pacificnorthleft #lifteachotherup #motivation #keeppushingforward #keephammering #BFORWARDFITNESS #workdontwhine #embraceitall #dontgiveup #mttheilsen #hiking #chickswhoclimbmountains #mountainclimbers #summitsisters #ilovetheoutdoors #staytrue

It felt AMAZING!!! To get back in to the gym tonight! . . After work is hard for me because I usually have the kiddos and the daycare at the gym is closed by the time I get out of work. . . Luckily I was able to get my sweat on in my new @letemflygear_com shirt! This is such a killer comfy shirt! I can't get over how nice this shirt feels. And ofcourse I couldn't help but to match it with my kickass hat from the badass one and only @kailacumings !! Y'all are inspiring.

Today has been a rough one. Eye opening. . . A couple nights ago I had this crazy dream. In that dream, I had died. I don't know how I died, I just knew. . . I was, I guess floating? above as our kids were gathered together crying and asking their father where mommy was... seeing the pain and sadness and Tauren having to be strong for the kids with really no answers for them... was the hardest thing I had to see. I felt helpless. I really don't know why I'm sharing this other then it shook me, and hard. . . Maybe it's because I'm always thinking of my friends and what they are all going through this year and or because I'm getting older and death kind of comes with the territory? . . I know dreams are dreams or some deeper meaning etc. But this dream has lingered for days now. I was in a zombie like state yesterday and today, it just really slapped me in the face. I tried extremely hard to not cry at the gym. I just couldn't get it out of my head no matter how much cardio I did. I eventually broke and couldn't hold it in any longer and cried a little. . . Life is crazy, nothing is permanent, everything changes (a lot of time without warning). Let the negative shit go, love hard, be present in the moments, believe in yourself and believe in others. . . I just want to Express my love for you all and that I appreciate every single one of you. If you guys ever need anything at all, let me know. . . You only die once. You have EVERYDAY to live. . . @relentlesshntr #rideordie #momlife #momoffive #greatful #family #livebigorgohome #outdoorsismylife #hungryforlife #pnw #pacificnorthleft #lifteachotherup #motivation #ironmaidens #bombmoms #momswholift #grindhard #coffee #truegrit #nevergiveup #flexeveryday #cardiosuckssogood #fitforhunting #keeppushingforward #BFORWARDFITNESS #lovehard #crazydreams #deathdreams #loveyourlife #ilovemyfamily #built4thehunt

I'm jumping the gun on transformation Tuesday. . . This photo on the left came up on my memories... 4 ish years ago. I was incredibly shocked to see this image of myself. Although, I would want to say this is an embarrassing photo it would be a horrific act if I titled this as such. . . I'm extreamly proud of myself seeing these side by side. Four years ago we got pregnant with our littlest Jackson. I didn't start my fitness journey until a full year after Jackson was born. I have put my body through some crazy shit, being unhealthy in one extreme (skinny) to the other end (not so skinny) and two pregnancies and so much more. . . Seeing this old photo, knowing how I felt in that moment and knowing the steps I fought for to get where I'm at today. The struggles I went through in and out of the gym. The days I felt defeated and crushed, physically and mentally. I can never explain how hard I worked and the things I have overcame within myself. . . All I can tell you is that my fitness journey saved me in more ways then one. It taught me things nothing else could. The strength, courage, confidence and proving to myself that I am capable of ANYTHING I set my mind to. With dedication, passion, consistency and some grit. To have the drive to never quit. . . I never thought then what I would know and feel now. I literally molded myself in to a new woman. I'm proud of the strength I've gained physically and mentally and extreamly proud of the woman I have become. I always have progress to make and I'm not aiming for perfect. But this was just the reminder I needed today. . . Never look upon your past except only to see how far you have come. . . #rideordie #momlife #momoffive #greatful #family #livebigorgohome #outdoorsismylife #hungryforlife #pnw #pacificnorthleft #lifteachotherup #motivation #truegrit #nevergiveup #flexeveryday #lifeisworthliving #findyourtrueself #letgoofperfections #strength #heart #keeppushingforward #BFORWARDFITNESS #keephammering #grindhard #yourjourneyisyours #believeinyourself

I've been under the weather for more then a few days...but I got to hit up the gym today in what felt like a weakened state. My mind not right, my heart in knots and my body just shaky. I surprised myself with getting a 20min cardio session in and just a couple leg machines in, which I was surprised how strong I was with one of them! Then I hit 500m on the row machine for a good finisher. . . #rideordie #momlife #momoffive #greatful #family #livebigorgohome #outdoorsismylife #hungryforlife #pnw #pacificnorthleft #lifteachotherup #motivation #ironmaidens #bombmoms #momswholift #grindhard #coffee #truegrit #nevergiveup #flexeveryday #cardiosuckssogood #fitforhunting #keeppushingforward #BFORWARDFITNESS #HUNTHARDHUNTPROUD #huntingseasoniscoming #BHA #keeppubliclandinpublichands #mountainmaiden

I completely understand not being able to have time to go to the gym or workout. Especially during any school break with however many kids you got. . . It takes a lot to do things you enjoy or things that benefit yourself/ health. Although I got busy with the family and just in general, during spring break and not getting any workouts in. It was a nice rest and I missed hitting the weights. . . But one thing I urge you to do is... NEVER GIVE UP! just because you miss a day or two weeks. If you eat one bad meal or five bad meals. Starting over may suck but giving up... you will regret it. . . In some ways I'm starting over and in others I'm starting where I left off. I have learned by this crazy schedule of my family, that I will always have my health goals. Taking breaks give me new perspective on myself and the goals I want to accomplish. I know for a fact that hitting the gym or being extreamly active will always be my life. Switching your mentality to more of a positive one is key. Stay on your goals and flow with the craziness of life. You got this! . . #rideordie #momlife #momoffive #greatful #family #livebigorgohome #outdoorsismylife #hungryforlife #pnw #pacificnorthleft #lifteachotherup #motivation #ironmaidens #bombmoms #momswholift #coffee #truegrit #nevergiveup #flexeveryday #gymlife #strongwoman #strength #keephammering #BFORWARDFITNESS #swollife #fitforhunting #goals

Working out and staying healthy is really important to me for many reasons. It feels great getting back in to the swing of things. But had a little frustration... . . Today, although I gave it my all I wanted to cry because of how this POTS syndrome makes me feel. It hinders me a bit and frustrates me when my mind says go go go!! And my body says slow down..working past it carefully is key. . . I just wanted to Express that no matter what your abilities are or if your body is fighting against you for whatever reason. Don't give up! Today I pushed through the tears and frustration and used it as motivation. . .

#trutalk . . I definitely hit a rough patch... The couple weeks I took off of lifting to move to a new house wrecked me! Not working out other than lifting boxes. Eating horrible... and all that mental and physical gain I worked so hard for was just gone...I got in to a bad state of mind. . . But last week I hit up the gym once and today was progress. I still have a good amount of my strength left but my stamina and endurance is highly lacking and a bit disappointed. But there's nothing like failure to push you forward! . . Don't give up! Even if you fall off the wagon keep pushing forward! When you rise each time you fall, you are that much stronger. Keep at it! . . #rideordie #momlife #momoffive #greatful #family #livebigorgohome #outdoorsismylife #noonecaresworkharder #fitforhunting #keeppushingforward #keephammering #BFORWARDFITNESS #swollife #ironmaidens #bombmoms #momswholift #coffee #truegrit #nevergiveup #flexeveryday #lifteachotherup #motivation #grindhard

My life feels a bit uneventful this week... not trying to throw a pity party. . . Things have gotten off track. My health, the house you name it, it's all just a big pile in my thoughts. Lol Today, although not as rough as previous days is still... rough. . . I've chosen to see the positive in it all. I'm still making progress in a lot of ways and I couldn't be happier! Things I'm grateful for...Got to wake up to our kiddos in a good mood, got some much needed rest, ate better, planning for the future, house cleaning coming together, job opportunities opening up, big goals and small ones. Missing the outdoors more then ever! But making that more of a priority again. . . I hope everyone has a great week! Don't give up!

Sometimes when you feel you can't go anymore, push harder. . . It amazes me how far we can push our bodies and mental strength. I got a killer upper body workout today and finished up with 1000m row. . . There are days like today, that I wanted to stay warm and snuggled in bed. But I'm so incredibly glad I forced myself to push harder today. I would of missed out on so much, if I didn't. . . Sometimes it's hard to stay focused on goals that are set, because of doubt, laziness etc. But you need to constantly look for things and or people to inspire you! Weather you find a new motivational qoute that speaks to you or you find a new workout move to get better at. Your goals will constantly change to fit your big goal. It's never perfect and don't expect to always be on top of your game. But never give up! Readjusting and changing, keeping an open mind will continue to help you grow. It changes day to day and hit head on. You got this! . . With that being said... Thank you @5amgamechanger for this workout idea. You are a huge motivation to many! If you don't follow him already I highly recommend you do! . . #rideordie #momlife #momoffive #greatful #family #livebigorgohome #noonecaresworkharder #gymlife #strongwoman #strength #lifteachotherup #motivation #keeppushingforward #BFORWARDFITNESS #coffee #truegrit #nevergiveup #flexeveryday #livebigorgohome #outdoorsismylife #hungryforlife #swollife #ironmaidens #bombmoms #momswholift #grindhard

Tuesday vibes got me like 💪🏾... . . If you don't go to the gym for anything else at least go for your mental health! It's such a great way to start your day. To feel accomplished, to set more goals, to focus solely on YOU. To use it as a time to reflect, to push yourself, to challenge yourself and do things you never thought you could do! Any frustrations you may have, get left at the gym. . . I encourage you to give yourself a bit of mental health with your morning coffee! . . Boku ball pushups. My upper body builds faster then the rest, so I cut down on upper body workouts. But still proud of those guns I got!

Months ago, I started with an idea and that idea grew and grew! I threw out my ideas to all of you and put them in to action... . . The result, the amount of support, heart and love flourished bigger than I could of ever dreamed! With ALL of your encouragement, donations, spreading the word, private messages and personal stories of triumph filled my phone and my heart. ♡ . . Since about October with all of your help I was able to make 30+ goodie bags with sanitary items and was able to hand them out close to Thanksgiving, to the Salem homeless community. Along with BBQ chicken and side dishes. They loved those goodie bags! The smiles on their faces were priceless. A very humbling experience and I hope to continue doing it in the future. . . And today handing off more then 10 garbage bags full of clothing etc. To the amazing local non profit organization, Helping Hands!! It was so amazing to do! The look on those ladies faces were of shock and excitement! . . If you don't know what Helping Hands does definitely check them out! They do so much to help out folks that are homeless and folks that have been in domestic violence situations that are building a new life for themselves. https://helpinghands-salem.org . . I highly encourage you to look for your own local non profits like this one to donate to. . . Without ALL OF YOU! this wouldn't have been possible! So Thank You from the bottom of my heart! Keep supporting your community!♡ and lifting eachother up.

Getting back to the gym after a long holiday and pushing hard. It's not always easy getting back at it. I was dreading the big rush of folks signing up for the new year. But it was a really good night sweating and digging in to my mental game. . . First sweat in my new @kamikaze.sports.nutrition red tank! . . #rideordie #momlife #momoffive #greatful #braplife #fitforhunting #gymlife #strongwoman #strength #lifteachotherup #motivation #keeppushingforward #BFORWARDFITNESS #swollife #ironmaidens #bombmoms #momswholift #truegrit #nevergiveup #flexeveryday #selflove

This is such a killer ab workout! . . While getting a good stretch in, opening up your core muscles and contracting them for a fuller range of motion. You get a really nice full core workout in. . . You might not feel it right away but I guarantee a good soreness the next day! . . Happy lifting! . . #rideordie #momlife #momoffive #greatful #family #livebigorgohome #outdoorsismylife #noonecaresworkharder #fitforhunting #keeppushingforward #keephammering #BFORWARDFITNESS #swollife #ironmaidens #bombmoms #momswholift #lifteachotherup #motivation #betheinsperation #stayhard #gothedistance #alwayspushformorewithinyourself

Everyday is a chance to begin something that you have always wanted to do. Baby steps are better then no steps. Crawling, is better then no movement forward.

This beautiful weather, gym time followed by park time and a leaf fight with my littlest... was a much needed childlike adventure with tons of smiles and care free attitude. . . Life gets busy, worries set in...life weighs heavy sometimes. But you gotta make the most of everyday and enjoy the little morsels life gives you and the ones you create for yourself. . . Enjoy your Tuesday! . . #rideordie #momlife #momoffive #greatful #family #livebigorgohome #outdoorsismylife #noonecaresworkharder #fitforhunting #keeppushingforward #keephammering #BFORWARDFITNESS #HUNTHARDHUNTPROUD #itsthelittlethings #ilovemyfamily #leaves #colorfulleaves #oregonfall #changingseasons #life

(Watch till the end) Lol I don't know how many times I've watched this video of myself. I'm cracking up! . . So, my workouts are never perfect and the only way to get better is to keep trying. This is a move I haven't done in a long time. I started the video on my first try back at it. It's not pretty. But i'm soooooo glad I video taped it for myself to look back on. . . This was my finisher workout. I did tons of lats, chest, shoulders, core and cardio. I was beat for sure. But I made it through and I have some comic relief from it. Lol . . If you are having a bad day I hope this brightens up your Monday blues.

Today was a struggle to just open my eyes... . . It was a bit rough for both of us today but we had a great session at the gym and since we had no littles with us, we decided to treat ourselves to some sushi! . . Was a much needed break. Today we made some great life choices.

This hunting season carrying my rifle in search for elk was adventurous and exciting! . . But I've always felt more of a connection shooting bow. I've been shooting bow off and on for years now and knowing it's going to be extra difficult, my goal is to finally bow hunt! I'm excited to get it started and practice like crazy. So if any one has any advice on bows or hunting I'm all ears! bowsoverbros tank check out awesome gear over at @slingnstitches_outdoors . . As for guns and being female, I feel safer having a plan B. Weather in public or out in the woods. Carrying my sidearm makes me feel more confident. I think it's highly important to know your firearm for any situation, to be aware of your surroundings and to know at least a little bit of self defense. Granted, self defense moves won't work on a bear, lol but I think it's still important to have knowledge of any weapon you may have. Not just for your own safety but for others safety as well. I highly encourage anyone to get their CCL. Happy Hunting ya'll! Photo credit: Jake Bryers

Motivation Monday! Probably one of my favorite days of the week! . . Today has been anything but lazy. It's been packed full of extra things that need to be done and my energy is lacking... Although I don't know where my day went and wishing I had more hours in the day. I'm still kicking ass at life! . . What's one thing that keeps you going or to stay motivated through a long day or in life in general? . . Don't forget to go check out @livingcountryinthecity podcast for hilarious and informative episodes, for the beginner hunter and beyond! Get yourself one of these awesome hats while your at it!

Transformation Tuesday. . . It takes a lot of sweat, trial and error, breakdowns, tears, successes, consistency and dedication to act on your goals. It's never easy and It takes a nonstop mentality to go the distance. Your journey is where you will learn and make mistakes, where you will grow and gain confidence in yourself and your abilities. . . When you feel like giving up, push harder! learning that, when you feel defeated it's okay to take a small break but to never give up. Always PUSH FORWARD! Even if it's baby steps or trying something different. Keep going. . . It's important to never lose sight of why you started your journey. To use that as your biggest stepping stone. And my best advice is to just start! Take that step forward in starting your journey because I can promise you that when you let go of whatever fear or excuses you may have holding you back, when you take that first step, it will ALL be worth it and more! . . What are your goals ? And will you start them today? . . #rideordie #momlife #momoffive #greatful #family #livebigorgohome #outdoorsismylife #noonecaresworkharder #publicland #keeppushingforward #keephammering #BFORWARDFITNESS #momfit #womanstrong #lifteachotherup #motivation #transformationtuesday #transformyourself

Re- FLEX- tion Friday!! . . I got this mirror from my grandmother a while back. I remember this mirror from my childhood. So it has sentimental value for me! . . As I've been cleaning the house and reorganizing etc. I found the mirror and started reading the inspirational quotes, positive reminders/ affirmations... and it brought me back to a specific time in my life where I really needed to read these EVERYDAY! . . I remember when I started creating this mirror of inspiration... it was a rough time in my life mentally and trying to find my path and a way through lifes obstacles. . . To see this today was a great reminder of where I came from and how far I've come. It reminded me of how hard I fought to be the person I am today. How hard I continue to fight to be better then I was yesterday. I'm humbled in knowing I'm not perfect but I never give up. My fight is strong and my mental game is on point! I KEEP PUSHING FORWARD and crush goals the best way I know how. Happy flex Friday y'all! What's your Re- FLEX- tion today? . . #rideordie #momoffive #momlife #family #outdoorsismylife #fortheloveofnature #fitforhuntingseason #cardiosuckssogood #livebigorgohome #hungryforlife #makeprogressnotexcuses #keephammering #itsallmental #noonecaresworkharder #camhanes #bforwardfitness #reflextionfriday #getyourflexon

Monday is almost here and I couldn't be more happy to start the week.

Shots of coffee weren't the only thing I was shooting this morning! Lol . . . I want to Thank Odom for taking the time to teach me and help me along in my hunting journey! . . To be a good hunter. To be the best you can be, to make an ethical shot and make a quick kill, is the ultimate top priority. To provide for my family and honor the life I take to do so. The only way to do that is practice... practice. Practice. Aim small miss small. . . I'm Proud of myself today. Only had time to practice from about 40yrds. But continuing to practice further distances as much as I can before October. Hunting season can't come soon enough! . . #rideordie #momoffive #momlife #family #outdoorsismylife #fortheloveofnature #fitforhuntingseason #cardiosuckssogood #liftrunshoot #camhanes #bforwardfitness #hiketohunt #aimsmallmisssmall #itsmeatsir #elkseason #livingcountryinthecity #conservation

My grandparents are probably my top favorite people in the entire world! All the minutes spent with them fill me up. I treasure those moments beyond words.... I strive to be even a sliver of who they are and what they have accomplished in thier life time... . . My grandfather although in his late 80's, still finds projects that he's passionate about. Like helping me fix up my bike today. He loves to help others and loves to be social with anyone and everyone! His memory is impeccable! Which even I'm a bit jealous of. He can remember a single person he only met once no matter how many years ago! Their first and last name, where they grew up, how many jobs they had, who they are related to and so on. Blows my mind! . . My grandmother is one of those huge hearted kind of women. She will give you the shirt off her back. Although her voice may be petite, she will still give her strong two cents when necessary. She is very artistic and creative with anything she puts her mind to. Painting, crafts, sewing you name it. She does it. And Don't get me started on her cooking! Lol wow! best cook I know! Her treats are as sweet as her smile! . . I thoroughly enjoy my grandparents and everything about them. I'm extremely grateful for ALL the family I have. Blessed, is an understatement in this case. . . #rideordie #momoffive #momlife #family #outdoorsismylife #fortheloveofnature #fitforhuntingseason #cardiosuckssogood #livebigorgohome #hungryforlife #makeprogressnotexcuses #keephammering #noonecaresworkharder #keeppushingforward #bforwardfitness #bicycle #grandparentsarethebest

Killing it on Leg/glute day. 20min cardio. Back at it after almost 2 weeks off. Decided to try out the Ol' recovery room! Tried out the compression socks for the first time! And the new massage Chair! Dear goodness! I'm hooked! I wish I could use these everyday at home! A much needed recovery and pampering! . . #rideordie #momoffive #momlife #gymtime #swollife #makeprogressnotexcuses #keephammering #noonecaresworkharder #keeppushingforward #hungryforlife #livebigorgohome #fitforhuntingseason #cardiosuckssogood #liftrunshoot #camhanes #joerogan #bforwardfitness #takecareofthyself #sweatandsmiles

Went for a run yesterday in the humid Tennessee weather for 5.5 mile in about 53 min. When I got back the wife asked if I ever heard or the app called #charitymiles ? So I looked it up and downloaded. It's awesome. I am donating my miles to the USO that helps #veterans and #active #military and their #familly . So today I logged a 4.5 mile walk with @kendyllen in 53 min and then ran for 3.2 mile in 28 min. #bforwardfitness #stumptownsewing #exercise #motivation #arbonne #running #fittness #vacation #tennessee #takingabreak #sweatingkoo

Alright... so I've fallen behind in a couple ways. BUT! I'm NEVER going to give up! . . I was at the gym tonight already in a strange funk, mood wise. My head wasn't clear. A lot of the stress of life, kids etc.. build up without me realizing it a lot of the time. . . This is one of the many things I love about the gym and keeps me coming back! It's a real mood changer! It helps me to release whatever bad energy I've held on to for no reason. Lifting weights helps me build confidence in myself and my body. Running helps me build mentally and makes me feel like a kid. There is so much to learn and build from, just by challenging yourself, loving yourself and taking those moments to truly ask yourself all those deep questions and have those moments to answer them. . . For me, with as much as I'm needed daily which I wouldn't trade for the world! With that... I barely get enough time to even hear myself have an entire thought of my own. So when I'm at the gym on my own, I really get to be myself, to deal with whatever stress I might be going through and leave it at the door when I'm done. And that is priceless.... . . #rideordie #momoffive #momlife #gymtime #swollife #makeprogressnotexcuses #keephammering #noonecaresworkharder #keeppushingforward #bforwardfitness #hungryforlife #livebigorgohome #fitforhuntingseason #cardiosuckssogood #flexeveryday #deepthoughts #deepheart
