Positive Affirmations!!!

thoughtsThink & say only positive things about your body, weight, fitness & health. Tell the universe what you WANT and work hard towards achieving it. When you are constantly nagging yourself for a few extra pounds, big legs and/or a cheat meal you will never reach your goals. Positive affirmations practiced daily will lead you to success. What positive things are about yourself are you telling the universe today??!!

Happy motivational Monday! 💪🏽🎉☀️👍🏼😍💪🏽

thanksgiving4The holiday season is HERE!  Let the craziness begin.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE this time of year.  It’s crazy, fun, festive, busy, full of love & family time.  It’s easy to get caught up in the craziness of it all so remember to SLOW DOWN and be GRATEFUL for everything that surrounds you TODAY.  It’s easy to always want “more”, to be 5lbs thinner, to want those expensive jeans etc…  Sit down and be THANKFUL for everything that surrounds you TODAY.  I believe that the universe is a powerful tool so it’s important to tell the universe what it is you want but also to thank the universe for your blessings.

What are you eating at your Thanksgiving table???  We are making a Paleo Thanksgiving dinner that will include:

Turkey
Ham
Paleo Stuffing (I don’t have this recipe written but google it – YUM),
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Homemade Cranberry Sauce (I use coconut sugar, cranberries, apple & water),
Fermented Sourdough Bread
Something green – not sure what…
Paleo Pumpkin Pie (YES Ben adds dairy whip cream!)
Another dessert – not sure what yet…

Tips for holiday eating:
*SKIP THE BREAD!!! (unless you have fermented sourdough bread!)
*Have one plate of food (YES anything you want) but don’t go back for seconds
*Only have a few bites of dessert
*MOVE – get up before the craziness begins and MOVE
*Don’t overindulge in the appetizers.  Save your appetite for the meal
thin-thanksgivingI am starting my day with a  run and a quick circuit.  What are your workout plans?  Get in my Thanksgiving circuit !!!

ThanksgivingBe grateful for everything that surrounds you TODAY!!!!  Happy Thanksgiving & CHEERS to a wonderful holiday season.  LIFE IS GOOOOOOOOD!!!!

Simple Disciplines Over Time 💪🏽👏🏼👍🏼


This graph can apply to your fitness, health, family, wealth & career. Small disciples practiced daily will lead you to success and small errors in judgement practiced daily can lead you to failure. Whether that is getting in a quick morning workout (even when you don’t feel like it), choosing a green salad over french fries, putting away $$ into an IRA even when you don’t make much (start YOUNG) or making your family a priority ETC will lead you to success. You don’t have to make HUGE changes overnight, all it takes it small daily disciples 💪🏽👍🏼👏🏼

Remember that you are a product of your choices and decisions.  It’s never too late to start! 💪🏽🎉

Family time is good for the soul 💚


Meet the Conants – my family of 6 💚. Add in 7 kids between us and it makes for a crazy 12 days!!! Charly and I soaked up every minute. Blessed to call Seward Alaska my hometown!

Races on the beach, glacier hike, bonfires, chu chu train ride & Sealife center are just a few of the fun things we did.

We even braved a family photo shoot which took TONS of bribery & chaotic fun! Chocolate chips & marshmallows anyone??? Anything for a smile 😂

Fresh salmon is always on the menu – YUM!!! My dad taught me a new way to brine & smoke the fish. Pretty amazing! This cute moose also ran through the yard a few times. Super sweet 💜



I also trained super hard this past year and raced in the Mt Marathon race UP & DOWN the mountain. The mountain had a super fast snow shoot at the top, great footing & ideal weather which helped me PR!!! I took 29th out of 287 hardcore mountain women. Proud moment as I am about a half mile from the finish high fiving my family and then at the finish line with my girl ❤️. My dad rocked the men’s race at 62 years old! No excuses people!!!! The kids all ran in the mini Mt Marathon which is a quick sprint up the street. Charly loved it!!!

Running, circuit & fitness in general has taught me so much about hard work, pushing the limits and never giving up in life, business, family & fitness. I thank the universe everyday for my world and know that I am extremely blessed.

If you ever get a chance to visit Alaska I highly recommend it. It reminds me of the simple life and I love showing Charly that each summer.

After an amazing trip I am extremely excited to get back to it (and to see my hubby!!)!!! CHEERS to a reviving vacation. I will see everyone SOON!!!
