The 24 hours following the etsy email were the craziest! I closed my shop to stop orders from coming in and to catch up! I am currently at 91 open orders. Last year when I closed my shop I had 38 orders. What I difference! Dont forget I still have that bum finger! Now I sit here in my studio thinking about all the growth my little business has had in the past year. Days away from my 3 year anniversary and I could cry happy tears thinking about all of my achievements. None of this would have happened without my wonderful customers! Some who are more like friends now! I really appreciate everything! Thank you! For those who didnt get a chance to order, I apologize! I really wish I could take more orders. Now as I aim to finish all 91 orders I'd like to ask anyone who has read this far to send some words of encouragement my way! I'm going to need your help to get through this!😅😅😅 #etsymaker#etsyshop#ilovetocreate#handcrafted#petportrait
Definitely had to use some BFF face wash after that work out! #whew
@fitwith_brit 4 week challenge is NO joke!
I’ve seen her post before about her challenges but had never really thought about doing them because I always go to the gym to work out, but after hitting a plateau I decided to give them a try.
I’m on day 3 of 4 weeks and am already super impressed with these circuit workouts.
I’m pretty sure I sweat more during these than any Crossfit workout I’ve done thus far. 😱
Also can I just say how glad I am that I purchased this @reebok bench?! ( Even though my husband thought it was a complete waste of money!)
Sweaty selfie or it didn't happen am I right?? 😂 After not feeling like myself for awhile I am back and feeling better! And I just completed the first week of a new program! I can't wait to see the results 💪
I’ve learned a lot about self-love and doing what’s right for your body in the last 3.5 months..... and it is the best thing I’ve ever done. You cannot move forward unless you show yourself some love and grace.
Move your body. Appreciate your body. Love your body.
Even after four years, there are still days where I question if I’m cut out for this. .
If racing home from work just to put on a different hat and put in another four hours of more work is worth it. .
If the judgement, ridicule, and people talking about me behind my back or so called friends unfollowing me on social media because of something they don’t understand is something I can justify. .
I’m only human. Some days that shit gets to me and I question myself as a coach. .
And then, because even if some people don’t, the universe always has my back.... especially on days I need it most, I receive messages like this....
“Katie, if you hadn’t reached out and shared this opportunity with me, I never would have asked for help. Today I have officially lost 40 lbs and for the first time in what feels like a lifetime, my husband touched me and I didn’t cringe from being uncomfortable or feeling ugly in my own skin.”
And that right there is why even though it is the hardest work I’ve ever done, it is the most rewarding. And that right there is why I will never stop sharing, never stop inviting, and never stop being a coach. Because if I can find that ONE person who needs my help, it will always be worth it to me. ✌🏻
I'm going at a snail's pace 🐌 this evening, but I'm pretty revved up about a few new bandanas that hit the shop a few minutes ago! What do you think about this new mint floral Rifle Paper Co print? I'm thinking I'm going to have to wallpaper my whole house in it! 😍
I am more impressed with Guinness than he is with himself.
I had a long day today and really needed the pups to be on their own for about 11 hours.
Guinness did it!!! No accidents. Now his dog mat may be more chewed up. But NO ACCIDENTS!!! We won't discuss Molson, who has been sick for a week and ended up in the bath tonight.
Being a dog mom can be fun and bring you a lot of joy especially when your a police officers girlfriend and your schedules aren’t the best when it comes to time together. These 3 pittys keep me busy, laughing & sometimes yelling but they keep me occupied. If you know Mesha & Harlie story you know they don’t get along well with other dogs. They both got along with my parents two dogs and that’s literally it. Bringing a third dog in the House was so tough at first because they had a hard time adjusting, as did we. But they are all besties now and Jax is helping Mesha in ways I never thought would be. #dogmom#dogmomaf#policeofficergirlfriend#rescuepitbull#rescuedogs
