Why Being A Health & Fitness Coach Is More To Me

This is going to be long , but I just want to share a part of an “assignment” I was given with you. (This is the rough draft)

I am a simple women who has had a complicated life. My stories could right books that some would mistaken for fiction. I am sure some can identify with this and feel the same.

All I’ve ever wanted to do is take the pain and the unloving things that I have felt and experience and keep others from feeling them. I want to help them feel empowered , smart, beautiful, like they have a place, and all the self confidence in the world. I want to help them feel loved.

I want to give them the love that I have learned from some of my biggest heros; my Great Aunt Edna, Great Aunt Edith, My deceased friend Joe Pruitt, my deceased cross country coach Buck Carney. All of these people made me feel like I was on top of the world and gave me life lessons I will never forget.

I wish I could bottle up those things and pass them out like candy. All I can do is try to give it to you the best I know how.

The burning desire I have to help others is strong. I need to help others. I feel like my life keeps cycling back to this. It’s my calling in life, I guess you could say.

Life is precious and I want to helping others sustain the life they have. I want them to feel like they are able to live it to the fullest feeling great inside and out, happily.

I have chosen to stick with coaching health and fitness and I seek to go beyond it. Beachbody has given me the tools to help someone and not feel guilty about the price. I don’t feel guilty because it is affordable. It is life changing. And it is fulfilling.

It has helped me to step out of my comfort zone and I know it will help others too.

I am by no means perfect, I am just human. I screw up and well I hate it, but I am guilty of not being the best person I can be sometimes. Not that I mean it. As a coach though, I’ll fight for you. I will show up. And I will try my best to help you succeed.

The way I see it, I have one chance to make this life the best possible. And with that chance I want to help you.

Happy Fitfriday y’all

A Thought or Two

A Redheads Thoughts On All This Gun Control Talk.

This is a big conversation, but it is one that needs to be had. Some are going to disagree and probably even think I’m a nut. Who cares…

Kids are walking out of schools, everyone has their guards up and minds closed, and every other day I’m seeing another school investigating threats made by children not taking what is going on seriously.

It’s aggravating. It’s frustrating. It’s heart wrenching.

What you have is a generation who are expected to be adults to soon. A generation who is scared. A generation who doesn’t know how to handle a emotion. So of course they are going to do some of this.

We need to listen to our younger generations, but also take into account they are acting out of fear. They are being influenced by what they are seeing in the media without fully understanding it.

And really, so are adults. I can say this for a fact based off of things I’ve seen reposted on social media that isn’t being fact checked.

Like you may have ran into the post that says something along the lines of “All Israel has teachers with concealed weapons in every school…..”

I know this isn’t true because I lived there. I picked my nephew up from his Gahn (school) , where not one teacher was armed. Why? It was against the religious views of the school… And if you know anything about Israel, religion plays a huge role in everyday life.

I could go on about how I know just that post is junk..

Also, as I said I lived in Israel. I remember a bombing happened and my friend just happened to be in the barracks that it happened in. It came from across the border they hit their power supply. Next thing I know I’m hearing Israel bombed the neighboring countries power supply from US news station..checked other news sources some agreed others had their facts straight.

My point is, no one fact checks. They listen to the “he said, she said” of the media and believe it. Or, there is not having any educational background on the topic at all. All this causes a fiasco.

And here we are, talking about the latest fiasco. Gun control.

Guns being taken away, regulated, what ever isn’t going to stop the violence. Just look, we have stabbings happening too.

There is something going on here that is beyond guns. It’s a mental health issue possibly? Or is there something that as a society we aren’t doing?

It doesn’t matter the weapon they are using… these people are acting out against innocent people and finding the root cause I think is where we need to go.

And though we may not know now, maybe to start change we need shut up a minute with the arguing and start behind our own doors.

A few steps maybe we take as parents

1. Cutting back on technology

Put your damn phone down, turn off your TV, put up the game console, put aside your tablets, laptops, and computers.

Have a conversation, get outside, learn how to live without it so it isn’t a necessity.

2. Teach your child how to handle their emotion. How to problem solve…and if your having problems with it yourself, take the classes…watch old Mr.Rogers shows maybe a little Daniel Tiger.

3. Teach your child how to reach out and be kind to the lonely kid in the corner, and if they are the lonely kid in the corner..how to go make a friend .

4. Teach them how to be safe with and around a gun, YUP I said it.

5. Teach them how to earn what they have and be thankful for what they have. Big or small.

6. Teach them to love themselves the way they are and not how society expects them to be. To think on their own and stand on their own.

I’m obviously for having a gun if you haven’t gathered by now. I am a women who hunts to put food on the table and a person who believes I should have the right to protect myself.

But I am also for having a safer future for my daughter. These things are not what I want her to grow up seeing as the norm.

Maybe I’m crazy. But I was taught to stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything. And I stand for the right to bear arms. I stand for being an American.

A Day In The Life Of The Redhead & Family, A Thought or Two

A Drink With A Little Fire

I enjoy the small things in life. Today was a nice day to do that..

This evening we kept things pretty simple for a Friday. I had one of my occasional drinks with my dinner and then we headed outside and did a little spring cleaning.

My husband gathered up some scrap wood and started a fire in our fire pit. Then helped a friend of ours put a new exhaust on his motorcycle. I cleaned up my box I usually plant my tomatoes in, then took a walk outback to scope out a place where we could maybe put a play area for Casidy.

As I was outside I took a moment and just breathed in the crisp air. My mind became clear, my body relaxed.

And I just observed my surrounding. Little tracks from the squirrels sat in the snow. The trees still and tall. It was nice…

I like days like this when we kick all of that garbage aside. Put our phones away and enjoy the company of our friends..I think maybe things haven’t completely gone to crap.

It seems these days all you hear when you go out is politics. Everything’s become politics. Its worrisome.

I think we all need more time away from everything media and more time visiting..

Gosh what I’d give to have some of the things our parents have. I wish I had random company stop in just to say hello and do a little front porch sitting.

The Outdoors,Me,And God

I lived in the bible belt. Yep, I’m a little Georgia peach who married a Yooper who now lives in the U.P. of Michigan.

I have Southern Baptist, Baptist, Nazarenes, Apostolic Pentecostals, Lutheran, Catholic and even those who practice the Jewish faith in my family.

Everyone in my family hangs on to God. They are doing their best to live life the way they see is the right way.

So, as you can imagine, I often get asked what I believe. I have those lovingly telling me how I should live and raise my daughter.

I am so blessed to have such a loving family that they all are so concerned about my soul. Once upon a time I would have gotten offended.. I know out of love they just want to make sure I’m going to heaven. I’ve been through a gravely road when it comes to my ‘religious’ beliefs.

Now though, I take a deep breath. I try to be understanding. Now, I don’t really comment on the topic, because I believe 100% it’s between me and God.

But… I guess….I am going to share a thought on the topic with you.

Let’s start with saying I don’t go to church. I go out in the woods or down by the water. All of that noise of questioning disappears. There is silence. There is piece.

Just being is probably my favorite part of being outdoors. I don’t have to worry about being judge. I feel closer to God and that is where we have our deepest conversations.

I’ve been asked many times “Aren’t you afraid of the bears,wolves,cats?”. No, I’m not. I usually have a gun on me, my husband and I do hunt together a lot of the times, and most importantly I know God is there protecting me.

Sometimes, I look at the beauty that surrounds me and I am just speechless. I thank God, I compliment him even, and I think what a wonderful gift it is to be allowed to enjoy the great outdoors.
