3 years. 1,095 days of daily steps leading me to better and better health. 🙌. Actually, my journey began when I turned 40. But it was a slow start with a lot of stops. 🛑 I said “no way” to trying this “silly shake” for a long time. I didn’t need it. I was “fine”. All shakes are the same, so I’ll find a “cheaper” one. 🙄 I was SUCH a skeptic! So I GET it! But after 3 years of drinking this stuff daily, I PROMISE you shakes are NOT all the same! A “cheaper” price tag means cheap fillers and lower quality ingredients. I didn’t start to FEEL BETTER until I tried this one! And I realized that this “expensive” shake is actually a fantastic value (and costs the same as a coffee drink at Starbucks). Only it’s full of NUTRIENTS, not empty calories, fat and sugar. 🥦🥒🍎🥕🥬🥭🍊🥥. But, soooooo much more than that- it’s been the catalyst than put me on a strong foundation that has kept me on track for 3 years straight. No more on-again/off-again. No “dieting”. No yo-yo weight gain and loss. Just consistent health, consistent weight, consistent energy and wellness. My celiac disease symptoms have vanished. My anxiety has vanished. I will be turning 48 on Sunday.🎉🎂🎈🎁 and I have truly never felt better. I’m even taking on new challenges! This past year, I began traveling to speak to women about fitness and nutrition. And this year, I will complete my Integrative Nutrition Practitioner Certification. No slowing down for this middle-aged mom of 4!! I feel unstoppable!! And it all started with this shake!!

#fbf Tough Mudder Tahoe 2015.
If someone was to ask me to pick my all time favorite OCR photo it would definetly be this one. Not because of the image itself but the story behind it. At the time I had never worked a promotional assignment at an OCR event before and I was feeling a little nervous and anxious going into the weekend. I started off the first day doing some basic shots at the starting line and then headed up the mountain. This was one of the first obstacles I came across. “Shawshanked”. Athletes were crawling through large irrigation tubes and then dropping backwards into a water pit. I took a few boring shots from ground level and then decided to climb to the top of the large dirt mound where the tubes were. I carefully inched my way out onto one of the tubes and reached my camera out as far as I could and blindly fired some frames. I pulled the camera back to check my images. Whoa! Coooool! It was literally at that point that I fell in love with OCR photography.

Tough Mudder ✅ .
Tough Mudder has been on my bucket list of activities for years. Thank you to @soapandgloryUSA I got to officially check this off my list. Loved loved loved getting muddy and challenging myself in new ways. You know I loved this obstacle called Kiss of Mud 💕💕💕
Although I spent my afternoon in all sorts of #mudandglory I definitely didn’t leave Tough Mudder that way. I left smelling all kinds of fruity with Soap and Glory’s new “Call of Fruity” shower station 🍉🥝🍍🍎
Who’s joining me next year at @toughmudder?
Tough Mudder Half - #finisher - Alle Hindernisse geschafft, nichts ausgelassen, oder umgangen ✔️ und glücklich AF. Unser Team war der Wahnsinn.. und soll ich euch etwas verraten? Scheiß auf die Brotbackform. Dass mich mein Bruder gestern überrascht hat und heute mitgelaufen ist, Leute DAS war das aller beste Geburtstagsgeschenk. Ehrlich. Wir sind infiziert. Jeder der mir im Vorfeld vom Teamgeist, den Hindernissen und der ganzen Sauerei vorgeschwärmt hat - ihr hattet sowas von(!) Recht. Scheiß auf die Elektroschocks. Nächstes Jahr heißt es für uns Tough Mudder Full. ♥️ Ich brenne auf die Vorbereitung! (Ps. das PickUp im Ziel habe ich tatsächlich freiwillig abgegeben - das Bier hätte ich jedoch mit meinem Leben verteidigt.)
It’s crazy, when I decided I wanted to train.. my main reason for going into this field was to change and transform lives! Never once did I think I would be blessed with such an amazing group of girls who have.. one by one changed my life! These girls have become some of my best friends!!! (all of you who punked out as well.. still love you the same) Conquered 5 miles and 13 obstacles today and I wouldn’t want to do it with any other group! Love you guys!!!! I am SO proud of us finishing this TOGETHER! ❤️❤️❤️ #Bnickfit#bootysbyb#toughmudder2018
