Hard Work & Family Time

When you mix our kind of work with a little time for your friends and family time you are bound for a little adventure.

These past two weeks have been absolutely packed full and busy. So I am going to just give you the highlights of the Memorial day weekend and week. 🙂

Saturday we got up early, it’s the time of the year we have to start the process of cutting, splitting, hauling, and stacking, wood.

We headed out to the family camp to do exactly that.

With my daughter in one arm I threw wood in the bed if the truck while my husband split it.

It wasn’t to much longer when my father inlaw and our great uncle showed up. They took over for me.

So Casidy and I went on our own adventure.

When it was all said and done, we headed in.

That night we had our friends over for a little cook out. It was a good time as always up until they decided to get funny.

My sister in law and I was in the kitchen talking to the other ladies when her husband calls us.

“Sara, shanna, come look at this! ” he calls.

Well, assuming one of our husbands wad probably doing something hilariously stupid we walked towards my back screen door.

The guys had a Pine snake 🐍 caught in a tub.

I grabbed my daughter and ran back through the house with my sister inlaw behind me. Both of us screaming.

She yells, ” Get in the car! Get in my car! ” no questions asked I got into the passengers side of the car.

With our driveway being so muddy from the rain Sara slides on her ass falling.

She gets in, turns the car on.

Here those pains in our butts come with the snake, Sara puts the car in reverse and there we were ready to go.

I yell out the window “kill it! ”

One yells back “No, we can’t. ”

I yell back “I don’t give a shit kill the damn thing”

Getting the hint the guys finally got into my friends car and took the snake off down the road.

I’m still pissed they didn’t kill it, watch it come right back.

See, when you grow up down south with poisonous snakes like this copperhead that bit my friends son over the weekend-who is thank God alright🐍, you do not make friends. I hate them.

Sunday came along, we ended up fixing a belt on our car and that evening I finally got my garden in.

Monday I spent my time with my family. My parents, nephews, grandfather,and friends came for another cook out.

It was nice, we ate good food like my friends yummy chickpea salad recipe, which I will ask her if I can share with y’all.

Tuesday, I did mor gardening. and something pretty awesome happened

This women right here, ran.

It was freaking hot in the house, so I decided after my workout and a little gardening I was going to put casidy in the stroller and walk to my mother in laws for dinnner.

The walk turned into me running 1/4 of a mile.
Guys, this is huge for me! Why? I havent ran without having an “episode” from my superventricular tachiacaria in years. This is a condition that caused my heart will beat to fast. I usually A. Lose vision or B . Faint while feeling dizzy like and overwhelmingly hot.

It’s been 4 years and today I really think I can get back to 5 miles a day. I have to thank beachbody for teaching me how to eat properly/drink water consistently and all the motivation I have to exercise everyday from my team and being a coach. Not only has it helped that condition, but my RA so much.

Wednesday I went over to my mother-in -laws so she could show me how to cook with a preserve ruhbarb.

I got 3 freezerbags and a cake out of it along with an education of how to work with this northern plant.

It is perfect 👌 for summer eatin alone, but that cake, boy was it ever a comfort food fit for winter. And as you can see, it is to tasty to wait for a picture.

Get the recipe here.

Well, that is all I have for you today folks.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, be sure yo check out other sections of our website and follow us on social media.

JUST LIFE,A HAPPY LIFE

The last few days have been crazy, warm weather is here to stay I believe
My sister came to stay with us last Friday. She came over this way for her son’s tonsillectomy. It was so nice to have her around. Her, my little sister, and I had not been together in 10 years. It was nice to be around the two of them again.
The weekend came in with my sister at my side. My husband and I of course drug her down the back road riding and looking for a Turkey. We didn’t see anything, just the female that has been hanging around the highway for some time now.
It really sucks living in an area that doesn’t really have the best Turkey population….

Well Monday rolled around and I had to say my goodbyes to my sister. She left and had my interview with Tinkergarden , this company I found has a goal of getting children outside again, well that went excellent. I am not in the last phase of the interviewing process, I really hope it all works out.

Tuesday Casidy – my little girl- and I went over to my Mother – in-laws house. We started our visit woth finger paint and build bird houses with my niece. Neither one of them had much experience with finger paint, so it was a sight to see.

W

hile the paint was drying on the piece of bird house the girls decided they wanted Grammy to catch chickens to pet. They had a ball.

When we headed home I had to kick myself in the butt. We launched a cool new program called 2B Mindset. I had to get it out and let people know about it. I am SO excited about this program and it is really important to me to let all I encounter know about it. It is a weight loss program that includes NO exercise. This means I can help MORE people. So I went LIVE on facebook and explained.

Wednesday was a run to town day. I had to get a package out to Fedex, and I had to get wipes. The day kind of turned into a girls day with my little. She was spoiled. I got her dump truck, McDonald’s for lunch, and she had a wolf in her happy meal.

I also found myself a really cool clock that was on sale.

Thursday I chilled at home and focused on getting some laundry done. Later that evening I helped out at our local schools Track event. They had me judging the pole jumps, and though that wasn’t my event in track, it made me miss my teenage years badly. I am at the weird age where teens think I am old and other adults older than me still talk down to me or brush things off like I am a teen. I watched a teen go by walking all cool because they had keys, not I wish I could feel that again. I suppose we all go through this phase in our lives though.

It’s Friday now, and my weekend plans had to be cancelled so I have no idea what this weekend will bring, maybe a little hunting or a trip out to deer camp? gathering wood? We shall see…
Have a beautiful weekend y’all.

Fitness Coach

Today I started my journey as a fitness coach. It has been something I have been pondering for about two years now. So I took a leap.

I’m not doing it for the money, just to genuinely help people. Because that is one thing I absolutely do love doing.

I am someone who works out everyday. I have always had a love for fitness and eating healthy.

I really fell in love with it in middle school when I joined my schools Cross Country team. I had the best coach, a coach they should write a movie about he was made such a difference in so many lives.

From him I learned so much. One thing being is to never give up and always reach out and help.

I hope I can do as much as my old Coach did for me, if not more for my customer.
