Are You Struggling Today?

It’s amazing to me when I hear people assume that if you don’t complain or talk about your struggles; that you must no have any.


Our struggles are our stories!!! Embrace them and learn to grow from them.  That is your message to the world around you.

In keeping with today’s topic; I will share some of mine…

I am a very happily married woman of almost 20 years to my amazing hubby.  Do you think that it’s been bliss ever since the day we said, “I Do”???


…and to those of you who are, or have been married know that it would have been a complete lie for me to say otherwise.

We started out as your average “happy” young couple with dreams of a family life, successes, growing in our faith and many blessings.

While I can’t say we aren’t enjoying all of these today, it sure has not been “easy” in any respect.

Which reminds me of a joke my son told us this summer;

“Why did the washing machine stop working?…. Somebody threw the towel in…”

=D =D =D

We all have struggles and if we stick with what needs to be done consistently; we can work our ways through them and come out stronger than ever. This doesn’t mean it’s a great idea to complain to everyone around you or share all over social media about your issues…

Because there is such a thing as an “unfollow” button and that will get pressed if you make complaining a habit. Instead, act as though everything is going great and your reality will become so. You have more power over your progress and success than you know.

My point is that although life has had it’s share of ups and downs for us, we never gave up. We kept refocusing on helping each other and moving forward in the best way we could understand at the time. There is no fairy tale life. There is no perfection for anyone. I know we will continue to have our struggles but without them, we wouldn’t be as happy and as strong as we are today. My hubby is my best friend and I know he has my back just as much as I do, his.

But you have to get a little bit (sometimes, a LOT) uncomfortable before you feel proud of where you’ve come from…

Let’s focus in on the happy parts of today!


Bikini Fitness Challenge

Are you envious of fitness models and women who look good in a bikini? Do you just want to FEEL better about your body in general? Either way, you CAN have it and you don’t need any gimmicks or spend thousands of dollars to get there!



If you want to achieve long-term results, you MUST commit to a healthy LIFESTYLE change. Ditch the diet mentality and quick fixes; they are only going to steer you down a viscous cycle of deprivation, unhappiness and lack of health.  I am starting a monthly challenge to help you get in the shape of either a bikini competitor, or just a real-life best version of  YOU; without having the costs of a competitor or fancy gym and trainer fees! 😉

This challenge sets you up for success by showing you how to build a healthy lifestyle you can commit to. It will show you that healthy, clean foods can make you feel amazing and taste delicious. There is a huge difference between just losing weight versus being healthy, lean and fit. It will show you that exercise can boost your mood, energy and self-confidence. It will also teach you that a positive mindset and an optimistic attitude can make all the difference in the world when it comes to the quality of your life.

No more “diets”; commit now to making this four-letter word obsolete from your life.  You will never look back. Kick negative thoughts to the curb. You CAN do this. You have to believe in yourself. “Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right”.  If you want something bad enough; you have to search within you for the strength and follow through when things get tough…and believe me, life will try to get in your way and sidetrack you.  Don’t let this happen.

You must remember along your journey that nothing worth having comes easy.  If it were easy, everyone would be in amazing shape.  There are no magic pills or potions to get you there faster.  Stop believing any hype that says otherwise.  You must commit to the fact that transforming your body and life will take hard work, patience, dedication, determination, discipline and deep seated desire to keep going; no matter what.

What is this challenge about?  You will enjoy daily workouts from either a proven fitness plan or my own plan; plus a personalized meal plan that will nourish your body, without adding harmful additives, chemicals or preservatives of any kind.  Your body does not accept these unknown additives as “foods” and can wreak havoc on your goals and ultimately, your health.  I will be your “trainer/coach” for the next few months and you can decide to follow from anywhere of 30 days and on.

Your decision awaits but my next challenge begins soon so don’t wait much longer!

Are you in?  Or are you just going to make another excuse?
