Finding fun in the after time. My art supplies. my cat. connections to friends. my career (live by a planner or die). connections to Michigan and trips and ocean. References to podcasts, and good times.

Leg lifts with a 10lb ball is pretty pretty tough. Especially when it’s been awhile since I’ve done them. 😳 Pull ups with bands are pretty awesome once you figure out your resistance. I CAN do pull-ups without resistance however it’s a bit uncomfortable for my chest. (Not in a good way.) Todays workout was back/bi/tri It’s been fun to get creative and completely switch up what I’ve been doing. Today’s workout burned 570. My camera man likes to put his 2 cents in. And why Bert? Bert and I match eyebrows right now. And it’s only temporary. MICROBLADING!!!!! 😂😂#keto #ketomom #homeworkout #feeltheburn #fitmom #desperatetimescallfordesperatemeasures #gottadowhatyougottado #michigangirl #utah #missionarymom #whosthecameraguy

l e t g o⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Can anyone guess what oil this is? ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ To put it *very* lightly, life has been overwhelming lately. My anxiety, which is normally through the roof, has reached new heights. My stress levels, which, again, are always crazy high, have gotten even more intense. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I'm in limbo between wanting to just call it quits with the semester and wanting to see it through. I'm yearning to go hiking and camping, but I'm also enjoying this extra time at home. I feel trapped, yet comforted. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Anyone else? I'm not sure anyone knows what the right thing to be doing is, but I know I'll continue dousing myself with this lifesaver of an oil and seeing this pandemic through.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Leave your guesses below!⬇️⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ #lettinggo #meaningoflife #contemplation #mindfulness #selfcare #thoughtfulliving #lifestyle #wellnessjourney #wellbeing #mindbodysoul #livingwell #justliving #naturalsolutions#northcarolinaliving #southernlife #michigander #michiganblogger #michigangirl #designhome #plantstyle #plantsoverpills #hippielifestyle #earthfever #earthlove #growyourownmedicine #plantbasedpower #plantbasedliving #lifeonpurpose #cltnc #charlottenc

Where are they going? How many went for toilet paper, only to find none? Visiting a loved one from their 3rd floor balcony just because they needed to see their faces? Scared, driving home from work to their otherwise isolated families? Out for a mental health drive, music blaring, window cracked to feel the fresh air? Delivering supplies to a sick relative? Out shooting photos while social distancing? Where are they going? I hope they smiled today. I hope they are healthy and optimistic. I hope they are still moving ahead with their lives as much as possible... and planning future vacations and happy. I truly hope they are happy. . #GrandRapids #GRNow #DowntownGrandRapids #MittenLove #MichiganGirl #PureMichigan #michiganders #GrandRapidsGirl #Positivity #YouveGotThis #SelfPreservation #SelfLove #NightPhotography #616 #IPulledOverForThis #Michigan #Abandoned #Covid #Lockdown #Coronavirus #StayAndWander #StaySafe

Hi Everyone! Many of you always ask us what smells so good when you come into the shop. It’s the Creationpharm products. The Lavender Garden Aroma Mist, Five Trees and the soaps. I’m offering free shipping on all of our Creationpharm products. I believe these products are very beneficial to our health. I love these 100% pure products and they’re made here in the mitten! I personally use the soap and the aroma mist daily. I also use the oils in an air diffuser and now there’s a Five Trees blend in a roller. Five Trees is the improved version formally know as Ancient Healer (Thieves) I’m also obsessed with the Mi Brain Roller! You can PM me for details.

January 14th. . That is the date I took the picture on the left. . I was struggling with IBS issues, flare ups more times in the week than not. I was exhausted. I was putting in the work but I wasn’t getting results. . I decided to try something new. A new program. Low impact, low weights, high intensity. Something I’d never done before as I am a cardio and heavy weight lifting girl but something had to change. At the same time I started a new nutrition lifestyle. Not dieting because I don’t believe in neglecting from anything. But it was Something I told myself wasn’t going to be easy or for me for so long. But when I started, everything changed. . I documented the weeks. 1 week in. 2 weeks in. 3 weeks in. And at 4 weeks I literally stared at the pictures as I saw a person who was practically heeled. My symptoms had gone to maybe once a month, my results increase daily, I feel more confident than ever and it shows in how I show up and, it all exactly what I needed. . I don’t know who relates to any of this and I don’t share to brag AT ALL. I share because if I could give every women in this world one gift, it would be to honestly FEEL how I feel physically and mentally right now. What I wanted for years. What I finally found. And what I’m never letting go of. . A little deep for a physical transformation? Maybe. But it’s an internal transformation, a health transformation and an amazing gift I can share that I’m so blessed to have found. . Enrollment is closing soon for our April SPRING REVIVAL group and I’m looking to fill a few more spots and take others on this journey to self empowerment and love. You with me? . Just say yes. It’s the best decision you’ll ever make. Message me. Chat soon❤️

What have you’ve been able to experience, do, learn, etc. while following the #stayhome orders? ⁣ ⁣ I have never made banana bread. Like ever. I loooove it and enjoy the treat of having it in the house when family or friends make a loaf, but I’ve never taken the time to make it myself. Instead, I would normally make a banana based muffin.⁣ ⁣ So, I decided to mix it up and make a loaf of banana nut bread with my overly ripe bananas. I even roasted the walnuts on my own 🤯. ((I’ll be baking up a storm before the end of this stay home situation 😉)).⁣ ⁣ This recipe was super easy and tasty, although not the healthiest — but, that’s where living a lifestyle of balance comes in super handy 🙌🏻.⁣ ⁣ 🧈 1/2 cup softened butter⁣ 🥜 1/2 cup roasted walnuts⁣ 🍬 1 cup granulated sugar⁣ 🥚 2 eggs, beaten⁣ 🍌 3 ripe, finely crushed bananas⁣ 🌸 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour⁣ 🥄 1 tsp baking soda⁣ 🥄 1 tsp cinnamon ⁣ 🥄 1/2 tsp salt⁣ 🥄 1/2 tsp vanilla extract⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 🔥 Preheat oven to 350ºF.⁣ 🧈 Cream together butter + sugar.⁣ 🥚 Add eggs + bananas.

I did the craziest thing today. I sat down and painted my nails 💅 With regular polish.... And then I sat there... And let them dry... 😳😂 It may seem silly to some. But my fellow stylists will understand. We stylists are always in a hurry. It’s a natural thing. We talk fast. We eat fast. We smudge polish very fast. That is why shellac is our best friend 💁🏻‍♀️ Dry as soon as you’re finished! It’s weird how life has shifted so quickly. I’m trying to find ways to enjoy it. And I hope that when we all get back to whatever is after this. We are very appreciative of what we are missing now ❤️

The world has changed in some really big and scary ways over the past few weeks and we are being encouraged to be socially distant...I understand entirely but man has it been rough! ⁣ ⁣ To be honest, I think we need to change that to physically distant but emotionally connected! Just because we can’t workout together in the same space or get together for a meal doesn’t mean we can’t support one another or be there for each other!⁣ ⁣ I am opening up spots in my support + accountability community for April. This just might be for you if:⁣ ⁣ ❤️ You’re feeling isolated and craving connections⁣ ❤️ Your gym is closed and you want a way to stay healthy from home⁣ ❤️ You love trying new recipes + would love a weekly meal plan⁣ ❤️ You want to bring some fun back into your life!⁣ ⁣ You in?

What does Arbonne’s detox mask and Arbonne’s deodorant have in common? 🤔 💚 🌱 Great question IG follower. Thanks for asking. 🌱 Arbonne’s detox mask can be used in 2 ways. Yes a great mask to detox the impurities out of your face. But what you may not have known is that it is also a great way to detox your under arm lymph’s. 🙋🏻‍♀️ 😯 Many people tell me that they cannot use natural deodorants but want to get away from all the garbage in the cheap ones in the store that have aluminum and other things that can cause cancer (lymphoma) but the natural ones just don’t work. 😢 🌱 🌱 Well it’s not the deodorants fault, it’s your toxic lymph’s. Arbonne’s detox mask used 2-3 times a week can clear the junk out of your lymph glands and then you can wear our clean plant based deodorant without worrying about the toxins. 😦 🌱 Comment below if you are interested and tag a friend who you think would be too and you’ll be put in a drawing for a free product. 🎁. I’ll pick a winner on Friday.

Joy: (noun); gladness NOT based on circumstance. I refuse to let any virus, unemployment, missed vacation, cancelled plan, closed gym, lack of social life to take away from the joy in my heart that is permanent. When everything around me seems uncertain, I am confident that a joyful heart is the prettiest thing around. Radiate joy today, not because you have it all together, but because it's okay not to. 🤍

Hey Michigan, can we please have some SUN 🌞 We all need some warmth and light in our lives Today is day 14 of being home and day 7 of the mandatory shelter in place. It is mind boggling that this has become our new normal. There are days I struggle There are days I feel trapped There are days I’m happy There are days I’m stressed There are days I’m lazy There are days I’m motivated There are days I’m crazy There are days I’m sane But through all of these ups and downs, I know my family and I are safer at home! Today has been one of the easier days. I’m either a) getting used to this new normal or b) have gone numb to the feeling of uncertainty. But enough about me. How are YOU holding up? Are you staying sane? Is the stress eating you alive? Are you doing well? Do you need someone to talk to? We may need to keep distance between us, but we can all be there for each other 💜 #stayhome #staysafe #quarantine #quarateam #stayhomestaysafe #socialdistancing #covid19 #coronavirus

Have you been eating out or boredom? Have you been emotional eating? Or eating for comfort? Maybe drinking a bit too much wine? I lost my job. I’ve been sitting on the couch too. I understand. It’s scary, the grocery store is scarce but I’m gonna give you some tips that have been helping me: 1.) EAT MORE PROTEIN. When you eat more protein you will stay fuller longer. 2.) keep the not so healthy snacks up high. Mine are sitting ABOVE my cabinets. Not at eye level. Keep fruits & veggies at eye level. 3.) I know the grocery stores are scary & probsbly scarce. My local ones are finally back to normal. So I bought lots of meat (aka protein) lots of frozen veggies & frozen fruits. Eggs aren’t there just yet but I opted for high protein oatmeal & Greek yogurt. 4.) Can you make the “less nutritious/ not healthy” snacks healthier? Instead of making brownies, could you make protein brownies? Could you switch your chips to veggies straws? There as always options. I KNOW you don’t want to gain weight right now. I know it’s tough, and scary but this is the time you can use to FOCUS on your nutrition. Weight loss truly is all nutrition. It’s important & I know you can do it! What is something I can help you with this week? Share below! ❤️

It’s Monday. I know, that might be news to some of us who are living the #stayhome life right now and are completely out of our normal routine. I’m on day 12 of working from home and following the stay-home orders. This entire situation is weird and scary and nerve-wrecking to navigate. ⁣ ⁣ I took a second this morning to remind myself that my CURRENT situation is one that I used to WISH for on the daily. I was working in the paper industry, which is a very demanding and aggressive workspace and it was taking its toll on me on a daily basis. So, to make light of the situation, I would always joke that I was going to quit and be a stay at home dog mom – so often so that my mom gifted me this cute sweatshirt. ⁣ ⁣ During the last couple of weeks, I’ve really been trying to keep Dave and I’s current situation in perspective. In the grand scheme of things, we can’t control what comes in the next days and weeks, but we can control what our mindset is surrounding the present situation. And for me, I am literally living the life I used to wish for – #stayathomedogmom – and for that, I am blessed and grateful. I am also incredibly grateful for those of you working in the health industry, in the heart of all the chaos, to save lives and get us through this pandemic.⁣ ⁣ Each day, I am trying to focus on what positives can come from this situation. For me, that’s being able to re-purpose my normal commuting time to instead walk the dogs. I can find a new routine that fits this season while I am lucky enough to work from home – wake up and workout, finish a load of laundry or vacuum the floor between meetings. I can still control what I eat, how often I move my body, and how much more I can snuggle my pups.⁣ ⁣ Each day, I intentionally get outside – go for a walk, throw the ball for the dogs, go to the property – ANYTHING. I try to find some fun activity that is different than my normal workday routine – like shed hunting or catching tadpoles or letting the dogs spend a few extra minutes outside. ⁣ ⁣ Each day, I choose to minimize the amount of time I absorb social media and news content. I choose to read about 1-2 articles per day and only watch the news when a

We are going to rock today, this week, this month, this season, this year because of ONE REASON. . Do you know what that is? . It’s not your will power. That’s an excuse we use to “not have will power” and have a reason we can’t be consistent or control our triggers. Triggers to self sabotage, triggers to emotional eating...trigger to whatever. . The one thing that’s going to have you showing up day after day and getting the results you want is NOT perfection. Perfection is a RESULT KILLER and a thief of joy. Besides, what IS perfect? . The one thing that’s going to push you through all of this with positivity and focus is YOUR OWN DECISION. . And not just once. It’s your decision over and over and over and over again that you can do your best, you can show up as your best in this moment, you’re worth it, you’re strong enough and whatever you’re going through, a healthy amount of grace and a healthy amount of tough love is enough. . I decided I’m rocking today. And this week. Frickin CRUSHING it. How bout you? . Enrollment for my Online Spring Revival Bootcamp is now OPEN! . Who’s deciding with me? My inbox is open.

I recorded this on Tik Tok the other night but somehow it didn't upload there but it did download it so here it is! I was happy to get my Pheromone Bliss Spray because it really helps me to have a sense of calm and they always give you little surprises! This time, I got rock candy which I gave to @omegasupreme111671 because he loves that and I can't eat it! And they also gave me this cool Light-Up ring!! Remember novelties like this from when you were a kid!?! I still remember the push pops too, haha!! But, this company always lightens my day and just makes me smile!! I love them so much!! 💕😍 #tiktok #tiktokgirls #tiktokgirls💕 #memories #memoriessong #ajaystephens #petitegirlsclub® #petitegirl #michigangirl

With all that's going on it would be SOOOO easy to sit around eating all the junk food. So It's more important than ever to stick to my meal prepping routine so that I can continue to reach my goals!! . What are you eating this week? Did you set yourself up for success?

10 years later & feelin’ 10x better!! ✨ plus better beer 😜 A decade. That’s how long it took me to find a fitness & nutrition routine that WORKS FOR ME!! • My routine from the time I was a teenage to mid 20’s was a little something like this: was a cardio queen, 10 minutes of abs. I grew up dancing, ran track & on the pom team all through high school. I was always active. But I thought weights would make be bulky. I yo-yo dieted CONSTANTLY. I compared everyone else’s body type to my own. I compared what other people ate and thought I could do the same. • I have since learned EVERYONE 👏🏼is 👏🏼different. You will not see results overnight!! What works for one person may not work for you. I have created a lifestyle that works FOR ME! • Need help getting there? I got youuuuu babe, enrollment for April is here! Let’s CRUSH it and feel fab together😘

{save to re-read!} As she was quickly changing her clothes after a busy day of work to get into her comfies she walked past the mirror and took a quick glance . . . then stopped, she looked in the mirror. . She saw stretch marks She saw saggy breasts She saw limp hair needing to be washed She saw bags under her eyes She saw lips too thin She saw wrinkles in her forehead She saw cellulite on her backside as she turned from looking at one side to another She saw thighs that were larger than 10 years ago She saw pale skin She saw her waistline that needed to loose a few lbs . . . . as she heard footsteps and snapped out of her gaze at herself, she grabbed her nearby t-shirt and held it up to cover herself just in time for her daughter to come bounding through the bedroom doorway. . “Yeah mommy you’re home! Are you taking a shower? Will you snuggle with me after you ready?” “Sure can sweetie but let me quick take a shower.” “Ok, mom. Mom?” Yes, honey what do you need?” . “I hope I look as pretty as you are when I get bigger.” . Speechless. Mic drop. No explanation ladies. Have you ever been “she”? . 💖 YOU are BeYOUtiful! 💖 YOU just need to see yourself through a different lens. . ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ This posted on our Facebook, Instagram, blog and to our email subscribers. Why all the places? Because I want YOU to see it over and over and over and over again . . . until one day you get it. You start counting your blessings and not your earthly “imperfections”. YOU are BeYOUtiful❣️
