Life Changes

Wow I can hardly believe it has been nearly a year since I have been able to take time and blog. Some much has happened it is unbelievable! He first of the year brought hope and a new start. We continued on our path to be debt free making great strides. As we struggled through weight loss andjobs that neither one of us really liked any more, we continued to push on knowing some day things would change when the time was right......
Well I’m not sure how much the time was “right” in our terms but 5 weeks ago God decided in his terms, the time was now. My husbands job was crashing and as the main bread winner that was the most terrifying thing that could have happened. We are in an oil town what do we do now? What jobs are open? Would we make it through this crash? So we prayed and thought things through and it seemed God was leading us “home” to Los Lunas.  Quite  Honestly a place we swore we would never return, a place we never wanted to be again. With faith we listened, despite fear a…

Making the Shift

Wow I can't believe I have been gone from this blog for 4 months. So much has happened both good and bad in those 4 months, but it is time to recommit myself to well me, and I want to take you along for the ride.

    I sit here trying to think about what I should even say. Sometimes I laugh at my journey and sometimes I cry. As humans we sit and judge ourselves, you can look in a mirror and no matter how "perfect" you are according to society's standards you are bound to find something that you just do not like about yourself. It is human nature after all! I started my journey as a Beachbody coach about 2 years ago, and 12 pounds lighter then I am right now! I was looking back at my goal weight, my goal measurements, when I almost began to laugh. I thought I was "fat" and "out of shape" 2 years ago and 12 pounds heavier. Now I have to admit when I started The Shift Shop 2 weeks ago I hated myself, probably in every way. I was at my all time hi…

Celebrate Summer in Style with Oriental Trading!

Being a stay at home mom for so long, and even a home schooling family I was use to having so much time with my kids. This past year my kids returned to public school and I think the transition was rougher on me then the kiddos! This summer we are celebrating our summer in style and have found so many great ideas on Oriental Trading's web site. I just wanted to share with you guys a few of our favorite items for our summer adventures.
     As you know we are a family who loves to spend time in the mountains. Hiking and exploring are a way of life. My kids loved the idea of getting their own compass on our trips in the woods. Now we know we can always find our way with these brightly colored compasses.

     I wish dearly that we were able to spend all of our time in the mountains, but unfortunately that is not always an option. We love spending time away from the television playing games as a family. When I saw these giant backyard dominoes I was in love! My kids love to play dominoe…

Get Up, Get out, #Gosportit........comfortable yoga leggings for your #yogafix

I have to say finding the perfect workout clothing for me seems to be a task more then a pleasure. Certainly it is not because I just don't enjoy shopping THAT much. lol Well obviously losing 10 pounds and a size means it is time to get a new set of workout clothing! Recently I was given a chance to review a pair of Yoga leggings from a company called Go Sport It. First I was very excited because as a woman who is a size 2 and 5'7, it is not really easy to find a good fitting pant. Go Sport It had not only a wide range of sizes, but I also got to select a length!

   When they got here I was really excited to try them on :) it was the day before my birthday so of course it felt like another fun gift haha. My first impression was how soft they were. The material is a thick, high quality material with a bunch of give(no worries I didn't use all that give). Only thing I wish I had done differently is warmed them up a bit! I guess the had been outside in the mail box a whil…
