Our 150 year old farm got hit by a tornado this fall, but it and our apple trees are ready for the next challenge, scars and all (photo from our fall harvest). How do you like them apples? 🚜> 🌪️ --> 🍎⠀

It is so nice getting to get back to what I love ❤️ Can’t believe I went two weeks not able to soap 😜 I don’t think I was going to make it! God is good and I am getting my energy back! #godisgood#usingmygiftsforhim#lovemyjob#kindakco#kindakcosoap#newsoap#backinthesaddleagain#brainsurgeryrecovery #brainsurgerywontslowmedown#soapon#sliceit
#backinthesaddleagain I have missed my OTR adventures so much but with my early and unexpected retirement, I really started to miss my rig. But the love of my life picked me up to do a local run with him before I was able to take him home with me for the weekend!
🌳🥑I want to be a Life-Giver, spiritual example, and helper. I want you to know loosing weight is not easy. I had many 😞depressing days that revolved around bad food choices. Discipline and Motivation were my top priority each day, everyday for 16 long months, 2 lbs a week. Some weeks less, but I had to get the weight off. 🍔🤠The day I could no longer pull myself up into the saddle, well it was pretty embarrassing. Not being able to bend over and tie my shoes, get down on the floor with my grandson then get back up was painful. I had to stop killing myself with food & Dr Pepper. It was like a drug. 🥦Fast forward : I’ve gained 14lbs since November. My 1st goal is to loose 25lbs in 4 months. I’m going to be posting foods, workouts, and motivating messages, hoping to inspire someone else to make their life happier. There is NO magic pill, just YOU being accountable, everyday. You will have a “de-rail meal”, but do no throw in the towel. Get back to eating clean, you will see results. 💪🏼 Think about your goal, write them down and document it. Take measurements & a before picture. You can accomplish what you set your mind on! ❤️ #fitnessmotivation#backinthesaddleagain#fitgrandma#proteinshake#eatclean#saynotodrpepper#cleaneating#goodfats#hiproteinfood#bodybuildingmotivation#thinkthin
Well here we go again!!! Shout out to @mischievousdave @summithuttucson for helping me with all the new climbing goodies yesterday. I used to climb easily 100 plus days a year. I studied for med school in a tent and took flash Cards to crag. I worked at @summithuttucson (and and am forever grateful) all through undergrad and a little At REI in med school to feed that habit. I lived, worked, breathed, and was obsessed with climbing. I haven’t touched a rope in over a decade. #olddogoldtricks#backinthesaddleagain#stoked
This is my “what just happened?!?” face. 🤣. Fifteen minutes. That’s all today’s workout was...15 minutes. I took off a riser, and I still got my butt kicked. 🤪 I’d love to be able to share more, but I should already be in bed. My 5am wake up is going to come early and SUCK! You know I love my kiddo when this non-morning person gets up before the sun to travel for soccer. ❤️ Have a great weekend, everyone!
Well... time for another announcement that’s been months in the making, and what for me will be a HUGE life change and a total step in a BRAND NEW direction. Believe it or not, I’m happy to announce that starting sometime in February you are looking at the newest member of the Lifemed Alaska flight crew. And yes, you didn’t misread that... I said Alaska =) After interviewing for flight nurse positions with a few different companies located in multiple states across the country, I have really felt the prompting of the Lord leading me out to Anchorage. Pieces are slowly but surely falling together and even thought it’s honestly not something I ever imagined for myself, I am absolutely thrilled to have been offered the opportunity to join such an amazing team and take part in such a cool life experience! Truly just praying for the Lord’s hand to be over this move and transition time in my life and that HE could use me to be a blessing to the people in Alaska I will be serving... Giving HIM all the glory for what I think is going to be a really epic next season in my life! Stay tuned to watch this girl who hates cold weather brave the elements, it should be thoroughly entertaining!! Haha... It goes without saying, prayers on my behalf will be greatly appreciated!!

Mornin lovies and Happy Wednesday! The holiday season has ended, the stores are back to their regular crowds and all God’s children are at the gym. Which is why I am not. I have tried the gym thing over and over. I practiced my “I am working out, please do not come over and talk to me” face. I tried to send stay the heck away from me vibes from the 200th treadmill. Did they work? No! I am friendly, but I prefer to work out solo. (Except for my yoga and dance classes, I enjoy working out with those like-minded people)So, I renew my Beachbody On Demand membership and work out from home. And I love it! Today I restart Liift 4. I had gotten through 5 weeks of it back in the fall, then I kept getting sick. So I stopped for a month. Today I start all over. And I won’t be sad that I start off with lighter weights, or if I get winded quicker. It is part of building my endurance and strength back. And I will. Now is the time to work on my summer body confidence. Along with everybody else. 😉😁🌟💪🏻 . . . #goodmorning#happywednesday#notagymgirl#bod#summerbodiesaremadeinwinter#newyear#newgoals#liift4#backinthesaddleagain
