Friday Fun!

Living healthy natural lives is not always the easiest thing, which is why I started my blog - to inspire and help others live their best life healthfully and naturally. I want to give you examples of how I am doing it through weekly updates, and I am hoping some of you will be willing to share your thoughts and ideas too.

So, here we go! I hope this helps and inspires all of you!

In my life this week...
This past Sunday my daughter turned 1 year old. Such an emotional day! I found myself tearing up around every moment. I am amazed with how blessed I am! Also, this week I took my mother back to the airport to fly back to Minnesota. It will be a lonely Christmas here again without any extended family. But, we have each other and that is a great gift.

I am inspired by...
the fresh air. I realized this week how much I miss walking and being outside. Today was rainy, windy, and chilly, but I loaded on the layers and walked around my yard a dozen times, soaking up the sights/smells of fall/winter. It was heavenly!

My favorite thing this week was...
the morning of my daughter's birthday. As I woke up, I started thinking back to how I was feeling exactly one year ago, laboring in my own home and giving birth to my daughter in my own bed. It was fabulous! Reliving that was my favorite moment. Sounds weird, but it is true.

What's working/not working for me...
Working - my creativity. I am starting a new program with my fitness clients titled, "New Year, New You." I worked out all the ideas that were in my head and got my whole winter session planned out and on paper this week. Lots of thinking and editing!

Not working - my marriage. Okay, well, it is working. But, sad to say, I think it has fallen way too low on my priority list. Starting today, I am going to make a renewed effort to work on it, because my marriage is priceless.

Questions/thoughts I have...
Am I making the right decisions when I work while my children play around me?

Should I add dairy back into my diet now that I have hit my latest health goals?
If you all have thoughts, I certainly welcome them. I am stumped...

Things I'm working on...

Working on trying out new recipes from a new vegan cookbook, getting classes filled for my next fitness session, putting my husband's and children's needs before my own, and somehow keeping my house sorta clean.

I'm reading...
Geneen Roth - "Women, Food and God"
The Bible book of John
An Amish Memoir

I'm cooking...
I have no idea what I am going to whip together tonight after my Boot Camp class. But, tomorrow I am going to make my husband's favorite meal - Mostaccioli.

I'm grateful for...
my amazing family. My two adorable children make me laugh and smile continually. My husband loves me unconditionally. Oh, and I am also grateful for fuzzy pajamas.

A photo, video, link, or quote to share...

Here are some pics from my daughter's birthday.

Have a great weekend!
