I did it

I joined Pinterest

And I love it! 

It is fun to just hop on there for a few minutes and pin away. It gets my creative side (well, or the lack thereof) to wake up just a bit.

Saw this idea on Pinterest and made it for V-Day

I try not to pin for more than 5-10 minutes at a time per day, and thus, it is not an obsession or something that keeps me from doing my normal daily duties.

I believe that everything that is good can be done and used in moderation to achieve a nice balance! 

Besides, a lot of my clients and readers have gotten major motivation to get fit, just by following my fitness and workouts boards. I'd say that is something very good ;)

So, if you haven't hopped on yet, let me know and I'll send you an invite and then you can PIN your dream house, next workout, favorite outfit, next vacation getaway, and future kids' room all in 3 minutes.

Win A FREE Book!

Hey friends and stalkers! (let's be honest here, lots of people read this and don't say anything)

NOW is your chance to win a copy (FREE) of a fitness book that is guaranteed to get ANY one up and working out!

As some of you know, I am a health coach by day and a fitness instructor, coach, and professional by morning and night (and a fitness and health blogger somewhere during those times. hah). I am surrounded by this stuff and I LOVE it. 

I am also a FitFluential Ambassador (meaning I share the love of fitness with others as best I can), and as such was given a copy of the fitness book AND a copy to give away!

The book is called "Working Out Sucks: And Why It Doesn't Have To." It is a great approach to show anyone that working out may not be the easiest or the funnest, but it IS the better option. SUCH a fun read!

I love LOVE

Happy Valentine's DAY!

I am a person who loves LOVE. I always have.

What's funny about all that is this: I've never had a 'real' boyfriend on Valentine's Day. EVER.

Not even with my husband.

Let me explain.

You see, in my past I had either JUST broken up with someone, was about to maybe have something happen, and/or be totally single on V-Day.

And then there was 2010. 

Jared asked me to marry him on February 12, 2010......
SO no boyfriend on V-DAY. Ever. Although I did have a FIANCE on Valentine's Day ;)

V-DAY 2010 (as engaged couple) --in the tree where we met
And now I have an amazing husband whom I love dearly for EVERY Valentine's Day for forever. I am one lucky gal.

OH and Happy Valentine's to ME today:

My sweetie got me these shoes!!! SO SO happy!
Remember this post?? And how badly I wanted the shoes? He loves me. Yes, yes he does.

And here are some FUN Heart facts for your reading pleasure on this HEART conscious day!

This past weekend was a blast.

Reason #1: We surprised Sara with a birthday party. Complete with awesome food, tons of people, a cake, and a saaaaawwwweeeeet dance party.

so many friends came!
Yours truly was the leader of the Justin Bieber "Baby" dance....and I must admit, it was loads of fun and super catchy.

me with the birthday gal!

crazy dancing ensued :)
SO happy so many made it to celebrate such a wonderful young lady!

And this guy (and my bro) did SO much to make the whole thing run smoothly:

It was such a wonderful evening:

We love Sara!
