7 days that’s it! That’s the number of days I’ve skipped workouts in the past 75 days! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m currently on day 67 of a 100-day program. And ya know what I’m dang proud of myself! My workout journey has had absolutely nothing to do with a Jean size or number on a scale. In fact, that scale has been going up the last two times I stepped on it, and I could care less because that was never a factor for me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For me, it’s been about feeling good, creating energy, and fighting depression, and for 75 days I’ve accomplished my goal. Have I dreaded pulling myself out of bed at 5 am, more times then I can count, have I still resented the workout after I was finished- not even once? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Every single time I’ve hit play and made a fool of myself in the privacy of my living room I’ve felt better after. I’m uncoordinated, I’m always off beat, and I’ve sweated more in the past 4 months then I have my entire life, but I’m going to keep showing up! I’m showing up for my energy, my health, my mind, and my mood. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The good looking butt is just an added perk! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you workout? Why do you show up?
Rolling rolling rolling keep those doggies rolling! I just are moving the last few pastures of cows home for the winter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m on traffic duty which is super exciting in #oilfeildcountry no mr semi you need to just hold up and wait until cows move out of the way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I think we all can get a little impatient at times with different things in our life. It’s so hard sometimes to focus on our own race 🏊🏻♀️ and not look over to the next lane and see a friend or a competitor miles ahead of us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is definitely something I struggle with. When Justin was sick I had to let off the gas to put my business on cruse, so I could focus on my family. I found myself scrolling IG feeling like I had fallen so far behind! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This can be true for so many things in life #weightloss finances and gardening! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If we are so focused on how others are doing in their race, instead of focusing on how far we have come and what’s right in front of us. Sometimes there are bumps in the road, sometimes it’s 100 head of cattle that seem to be moving like molasses in January. Either way sometimes we need to just slow down and that’s okay! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Where are you finding yourself in this season? Stepping on the gas, waiting for cattle to cross the road? Or are you watching someone else run their race? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Life was so much simpler then, yet it felt chaotic at the time. This was our second year anniversary. This year will be our 7th. Crazy to think about all we had gone through in the past 5 years. 9 surgeries another kiddo, a new house. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We snapped this photo as we waited for a cab to head to the PBR finals in Vegas! It’s one of my favorite photos of the two of us! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wonder where life will take us in the next 5 years!
