Today I wanted to share with you a few misconceptions that people have about being active, and exercising. I’m really hoping to bust some of the things that can be used to hold people back or lead people to not be active so that we can all lead a life where we move on the regular!
I am a huge fan of breakfast!! It’s not only the most important meal of the day, but happens to be one where I enjoy pretty much everything about! Eggs, bacon, waffles, hashbrowns, benedicts, pancakes! I could go on…
I’ve noticed that balance is a word people are using more and more when it comes to their daily lives and how they make it all work. Balance is also a term often associated with diet and weight loss. But it is about so much more than that too! I wanted to share a little bit with you about why balance is so such a huge part of how I live my day to day, and how it keeps me in check with myself.
This has been a pretty eventful summer! (Eventful compared to last when I had a baby who was not yet walking and tied us down a little more) Although I am sad that it is coming to an end, I have made a lot of personal growth this summer, as well as we have done some really fun family things.

Perhaps that is what they call impatience, but when I am so passionate about something I can’t help it! I am one of those people that when I set my mind to something, I go all in. I live it, I breathe it, it is often on my mind and I will happily share with those around me.
I wanted to talk with you guys today about the very thing that gets in the way for most of us, including me at times, when it comes to reaching your goals.
We all have different comfort levels. That’s the beauty of each individuals uniqueness. Different interest, different tolerances, different goals. Most people have a Bucket list- things they would like to accomplish throughout their lives. Bucket lists can sometimes include some pretty exhilarating things. Skydiving, hot air balloon rides, running a marathon. Some of us have concrete plans of accomplishing these things, and others are held back because of fear. Fear is a negative emotion. It keeps us down, it prevents us from breaking out of our shell, it places limits on what we think we can do. It keeps us small and it keeps us trapped.
