I’m putting it out into the universe to stir some personal accountability folks. I’m back down to the size on the left (marathon #3, 2014) but the goal is the size on the right (our rehearsal dinner, 2010). I’m not trying to focus solely on numbers here but it’s a 13lb difference. I have no more orthopedic injuries, the ticker and tech are up to date and mended, baby is 8 months old, and this epic respiratory infection is on its way out. No more excuses! Let’s do this 💪🏻👊🏻 #newyearOLDme#fitmomlife#ironheart#chdwarrior#medtronicglobalheroes#rungram
I guess this is a lifestyle Instagram? I’m not super sure what to call it. I told someone, “New Year, New Me” this morning then took a second to think. I don’t really want or need a new me. I like who I am and who I was, but over the past few years I stopped doing things I love. Mostly because college, work, grad school, and a bunch of other stuff is exhausting! So this year I’m going to focus on, “New Year, Old Me” and, “New Year, Best Me!” Super cheesy, but whatever. With this Instagram I’m just going to post whatever progress or setbacks I make as I go. Maybe there will be some wisdom nuggets along the way? Who’s to say? #Lifestyle#WisdomNuggets#NewYearOldMe#NewYearBestMe#GiantUnicorn
Sometimes it’s not about becoming a new you for the new year, it’s about shedding the walls and masks you’ve built up over the years to connect back to the old you, while still applying what you’ve learned in your experiences to protect yourself. I’ve learned that you can protect yourself and your feelings without being or coming across as harsh. It’s something I’m still working on every day, but I’ll definitely get to where I need to be ✨

I'm not a "New Year - New Me" type. My goal right now is "New Year - Old Me". Six years ago I was in the best shape I've ever been in, fighting shape if you will 😉, I've signed on with Crunch Fitness and I'm really digging this new facility. Time for work starts now. #DoTheWork#NewYearOldMe

💊Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear💊
First photo was taken about two years ago. Second one is now. It’s amazing how much changes in just two years. Some things remain the same, like Clare’s fascination for soaps and the fact that she’s always by my side. I can remember this packaging too. I know it will evolve again and again. Sometimes we should look back a couple of years to help deepen our gratitude. I remember where I was mentally in this image - working a full time job, taking Clare to daycare, and squeezing in experimental nights of soap making, packaging and designing. I’d daydream at work so hard visualizing me in my soap room every chance I had so it would manifest. It did (4 months later), so now it’s time to re-evaluate and really think about new dreams and goals. That’s what I’ve found myself doing all weekend during this full moon eclipse in January. Finding gratitude, setting goals and developing new manifestations. I hope your January resolutions are still holding strong and you are also setting positive goals ❤️
Good morning, Loves.🎶
Hope your 2019 is well on its way. I thought we should talk: "Strong Start - Strong Finish". 🤩
Since 2018 was the first time in my life I've experienced actual burnt out I had to re-assess and adjust accordingly.
Finding balance through it all has been a major challenge but since I have put in the work to get to the core of the cause it has guided me into the mindset I have at this very moment.😇
Later on the mindset...
Love, Always M xo
I can't believe almost 10 years has passed, just like that! I have learned to not take the little things for granted and I think all of us can agree that "if I could take 10 years back" 😂 Letting go of all bull Shit and toxic people; Keeping my circle small 🌍
But, we live and we learn.. I'm still learning and still grateful 🙏
Here's to 10 more years 🥂🎉 #10yearchallenge#NewYearOldMe 🎀🎀🍬🎀🎀

Does anyone else get super giddy about new journals?!
Crisp blank pages waiting to be filled with pleads and adorations and confessions and longings.
Something deep within stirs the anxious anticipation of new seasons, fulfillment of prayers that will pour over from previous years, previous journals. Lessons not yet learned.
The peace and certainty of the goodness and wonder that grow deeper with each volume.
Ebenezers of His perfect plans, prayers whispered and pleads shouted that were heard and validated and more times than not, answered.
