I read somewhere that a habit can be our greatest ally for positive change– or most frequent saboteur of personal success. Creating solid habits that align with our values are important to finding success but what about those habits that might be holding us back?
Here are 3 habits that are standing in my way of getting exactly what I want.
Skimping on sleep.
I don’t make sleep a priority even though I know how valuable it is. I average about 6-hours a night. For a long time I lived by the phrase “You can sleep when you’re dead.” I thought in order to be […] Read more
I’ve heard we overestimate what we can do in the short run and underestimate what we can do in the long run. Boy can I attest to that personally as I am a recovering procrastination-aholic. Sometimes I’m a head case. My mind moves really fast. I’m pumped about almost everything and it’s a challenge for me to tame my brain 🧠.As you will see my 3 habits I’ve been working to change are mostly about what goes on between my ears👂 .

What makes a person successful?
💵 Is it money?
🏃 Is it fitness/health?
😊 Is it being happy?
I found an article that said this. “Successful people don’t necessarily consider themselves successful because they’re rich or powerful. Instead, they often talk about relationships, well-being, and societal impact.” YES! As I was writing this blog, I was thinking this exact same thing. I feel I am successful. Why? Let me tell you.
I’m a happy person. It’s easy for me to be positive and I rarely struggle emotionally. I work hard to get what I want and for some reason I almost always do. I’ve never […] Read more
As the great Og Mandino wrote, “Bad habits are the unlocked door to failure”
On the other hand, good habits can bring us closer to our goal or mission. The definition of a habit, after all, is “a regular (repeated) tendency or practice.”
I encourage you to ask yourself the same thing I did a few months ago: Do your current habits bring you closer to or push you away from your goals? If your answer leans a little too heavily on the latter, then you might want to try “installing” some new habits into your daily routine. And […] Read more

I am SO excited. The Crossfit Games start this week and we are headed to Wisconsin to watch. Events started yesterday and included a Crossfit total (❤️❤️❤️) and a marathon row (🤢🤢🤢). Can you imagine rowing a marathon? They are saving some spectacular events for the weekend I’m sure. Can’t wait!

The last few weeks of summer😎 are here. I have enjoyed the extra time with my kids. They make my heart❤ happy. We have had a summer packed full of activities with lots of new memories made. I have enjoyed the warm weather, the longer days and the outdoor time but I think I am ready for school to start. Why?
Disrupted routines. My kids are staying up later, eating more unhealthy snacks and spending way too much of their downtime on devices 📱. They seem to have forgotten which day of the week it is📆, how to flush a toilet […] Read more
This week is FUN Week from the Coaches… Something small or big that we are currently excited about.
Truth be told, I’m a podcast junkie. I love to learn and educate myself. I have this thing about educating yourself. Education feeds motivation. Knowledge is power! And when you continue to increase your knowledge you can begin to empower yourself and become unstoppable.
Lately I’ve had the opportunity to be on a few podcasts as a guest. The most recent was with my old great friend, Zeb Pascual, with his own Pascual Podcast. I love getting a opportunity to collaborate with other great minds […] Read more
Living 8 miles from Canton and 30 miles from Sioux Falls prevents me from eating out as much as I would like to. I love eating at home but the convenience of being able to grab something quick would be nice.
I asked Chris “can I make my blog funny?” He wasn’t sold on the idea. But here’s the deal…. if I’m going out to eat, this is how I order. It’s not even a joke. Most of my meals are at home so I’m going to eat something I like if I go out.
How do I order? Simple…
1️⃣ Order […] Read more
Lets talk at the human level about Food….
1. Food is fuel. Calories are units of energy. We fuel our bodies like a car with gas. When the low fuel light goes on we simply find the nearest (or cheapest) gas station and fill up our tanks. It really could be as simple as that except…
2. Food is also designed for pleasure. We have 3 biological basic tastes; (sweet, salty and fatty) more on this in a past post GOT CRAVINGS. And food companies are smart and out for our money so they do a really good job overstimulating our foods […] Read more

Why I workout.
Let’s go back to the year 1997, the summer before my sophomore year of college. I was living at home with my parents. I traveled to Sioux Falls for my annual exam with Dr. Looby. I had gained 10 pounds. I wasn’t weighing myself regularly so I didn’t realize the weight gain. Thing is… I didn’t really care too much UNTIL Dr. Looby said, “Emily, you have gained 10 pounds this year. You will gain another 10 pounds next year and every year after if you aren’t careful.” His comment shocked me. He was right. I cried when […] Read more
A question I ask others all the time. I’ll give you the answers from me that I am always looking for in others. And its not the usual to lose weight, get stronger, feel better answers. And trust me that is all well and good but the reality of it those are the benefits we receive not the actual reasons why do it.
#backStory At the core of who I am is a skinny 16 year old sophomore. I would slouch when I stood around others who were shorter than I was just to fit in. Basketball⛹🏽♂️(my first love) […] Read more
