Thankful that I get to spend everyday with my baby girl while getting to watch her laugh and grow. It’s amazing that I never have to miss a moment with her because I chose to take control of my life by making my own rules and working from home. It’s hands down the BEST decision I’ve ever made. Love spending my days with my littlest best friend💖
WINNERS AREN’T PEOPLE WHO NEVER WIN, WINNERS ARE PEOPLE THAT NEVER QUIT.
Today’s quote of the day when I was struggling to finish my workout. It’s not always easy but remembering the reason on why you decide for change should be the fuel to your fire. Next summer bod bootcamp kicks off May 14th & only accepting 10 goal crushers to slayyyy with me! Are you ready to go balls to the wall and say bye bye fluffy jiggle? 🙋🏻♀️🙋🏽♀️🙋🏾♀️ LETS DO THIS SHIT!
⚡️Here’s to stop caring what others think. (Recovering people pleaser here!) 🙋🏼
⚡️Here’s to getting comfortable being uncomfortable. (This used to scare me so much! But this is where the growth happens!).🙏🏻
⚡️Here’s to a life of such energy and zest for life. 🤸🏼♀️💕
“When I look back at my life in 10 years, I want to know I chose my life, I didn’t settle for it!” ⚡️
This quote always hits me right in the FEELS! Are you choosing your life, or are you settling for it? ✌🏻💕
I for sure am CHOOSING my life!
I CHOOSE who I surround myself with.
I CHOOSE how I spend my days.
I CHOOSE how I feel. ✨💕.
Now I’m off this morning for a hike.
Thursday morning hike - I’ll take it! ✌🏻✨

We are allowed to remain
We just need to make sure in everything that we are true to ourselves 💋
Sometimes you might question if you’re doing the right thing, mentally, physically, nutritionally, financially or even emotionally.
Keeping your eyes forward and not looking back is a good and healthy practice.., however seeing how far you’ve come despite those obstacles or speed bumps is a good thing too.
I wouldn’t change a thing from my past because those speed bumps and obstacles are what have formed and made me a better person today. Take a chance and choose you. 💪❤️💪❤️💪❤️. #mswarrior#chooseyou#inspire#msfighter#results#pride#busymom#workingmom#chooseyourpath
I know that I am blessed to be able to work from home. No commute and the ability to chat to my cats during the day is a huge bonus lol! It’s not really about the location however, it’s about having the freedom to serve people without the restraints of being on a 9-5 lockdown. This freedom didn’t fall into my lap however. I’ve worked towards it for years. I’ve learned to be brave and choose my own path in the face of naysayers, and I’ve learned to grab opportunity when it comes. What’s more, I’ve learned to work my butt off without having someone standing over me telling me what to do. I love what I do - and I have chosen this path rather than allowing the world to dictate the path for me. Who else relates? ❤️ Cat x www.rockingmidlife.net #catcoluccio#rockingmidlife#homeoffice#beyourownboss
“Our decisions aren’t just isolated choices. Our decisions point our lives in the direction we’re about to head.” This was a quote from my devotional, “Embraced” by Lysa TerKeurst this morning. It has stuck with me and been on my heart all day!
What direction are your choices leading you in? If we aren’t intentional they can lead us wherever the winds of life blow us and one day we wake up and wonder how we got there! If we let fear whisper lies in our heart that too may be the direction our choices take.
What direction do you want to go? It’s never to late to take inventory of where you are and change directions. Focus on just the next step in that direction and make it a good one. Seek out God to quiet that fear and enable your steps. Seek out community to encourage you and build you up along the way. It will probably be hard, but you are stronger than you realize. You may stumble, but you will learn and keep moving forward! The journey those brave steps take you in will be beautiful! You are so worth it!
Have I mentioned how much I love my team?! We got the opportunity to share our personal health and fitness stories tonight and it was amazing!
We all come from different backgrounds but we have the same goals to become better people mentally and physically, as well as motivate others!
The cold medicine DEF made me ramble a bit but I love talking about this lifestyle and how it has made me a better person! I love my life, I love my team! If you ever have questions or missed this opportunity, please reach out! I would love to share more with you! 🌻 #chooseyourpath
Honest truth I’m not much of a book nerd, and I’m embarrassed to tell you the last serious I read, so I won’t. Any “shady” guesses?! 🤓🔥.
What I will tell you is this, sit down and read this book. It’s A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! (Also, I’m really excited to use the book emoji!) 📚😂.
I told my husband I needed to buy a book for our plane ride, and he looked at me like who are you?! Let me tell you why I’m so glad I did! 💕🙌🏻.
This post was written on our plane ride as we had just left Cleveland, and I just took this (swipe) photo. ✈️ 📷 .
4/9/18. (One day before my birthday.).
Real talk here, today has been total chaos. Let’s start from the beginning. I could have easily posted a “peace out” Cleveland, or man crush Monday here, but guys everyday, (even the days you are flying to Hawaii), you will encounter stress. It’s all a matter of how you handle it. Today after our flight got switched, and delayed, Mike and I found ourselves in a full marathon run through Denver. We were not going to make our connecting flight. (All the while my husband saying get ready to celebrate your birthday in the Denver airport.) Needless to say, I’m leaving out the three arguments we had, the baby that would not stop crying, my need to constantly eat, and the fact that living on nuts was simply not cutting it. Can we say phew - it’s been real. On the flip side... I finally got to read, yes read. So I finished @msrachelhollis #girlwashyourface and what a gift that was! I also got to see some incredible window views, take time to write this post, provide my husband with a grand finale kiss and high-five for living through all of it together! Point being, your day no matter where you are will bring you unexpected challenges. You must train your brain to “reset”, and talk about the great experiences too! Now... Aloha Hawaii! (Oh yeah, we made it, which I know y’all know!) 😘🙌🏻🌈🌺🌸👙🏖☀️💛🌴🥥.

Here in Scotland we dont get much of a chance to do some al fresco eating! So I grabbed a chance while the sun was shining this morning to try out the last box of @naturespathuk cereal kindly sent to me to try! ☀🌞
So, this was the @naturespathuk Honey & Chia Superflakes!
I had saw a few comments before trying saying these were extra crunchy and man they were!!!! I think it may be the crunchiest cereal I have tried! I did like the honey & Chia and taste of the flakes. I am a fan of crunchy cereal so it didn't seem like too much that they were quite hard tasting. If you do have sensitive teeth they may be sore though! They were nice and sweet and had that sweetness also went in to the milk! .
I would recommend them if you like a crunchy cereal, if you don't they may not be for you! Overall they were a pleasant cereal and perfect for spring/summer morning breakfast! .
My favourite of the @naturespathuk cereals has been the cocoa & coconut superflakes. The range is great and I would really recommend trying if you are coeliac/intolerant. They offer something different and are an alternative to the usual cereals we have sold in the gluten free sections! ☺
🍼Good quality whey protein can be a great addition to a healthy lifestyle. It is an easy (and delicious way) to add easily digestible protein to your diet. Whey protein is very well researched in its ability to increase strength and lean body mass while helping the body to shed fat more effectively.
🍼But whey is more than just protein. When processed without heat (pasteurization) and the use of chemicals, whey protein retains important protein structures, such as immunoglobulins, that have promising findings in relation to our health! Studies have found that whey protein supplementation may prevent certain cancers, help lower cholesterol, improve asthma and allergy symptoms in children, reduce blood pressure, lower the chance of developing cardiovascular disease, and that is just to name a few!
🍼However, I urge you to do your research before purchasing your next bottle of protein powder. Whey is a product that varies greatly in price range, and that is due to the differences in its sourcing and processing methods. Cheap protein powders tend to use chemical buffers when filtering the whey protein and pasteurize the product, killing off many valuable nutrients. Opting for organic, or New Zealand whey products is also highly recommended. Conventional US and Canadian cows are often subjected to antibiotic and hormone use, traces of which then make their way into the milk product that we consume. I choose to buy a superior product from New Zealand where cows are treated very differently from here: no use of antibiotics or hormones. PLUS, they allow the cows to eat their natural grass diet instead of opting for cheaper feed (higher nutrient content in the product!) AND allow the cows to roam free in the fields rather than being locked up in confined spaces.
🍼I encourage all of you to ALWAYS make your health a priority and ALWAYS do your research before trying a product to ensure that your body and the planet get treated with respect.
Even though I’ll just be getting home from vacation and I’m under the weather, I cannot wait to share my story with y’all!
I’ll be going live on facebook with my coach besties to talk about the opportunity that literally changed my life (mentally, physically, and emotionally!) It will give you an insight to our challenge groups, lifestyles and benefits of being on this team!
I can’t wait to share my heart! Message me or comment below if you want to see what it’s all about!
