The 5 senses: Sight


If you haven’t noticed by now I LOVE TO POST PICS OF FLOWERS!  Why?  They are VISUALLY stimulating.   Out of our 5 senses, one is SIGHT.  Just by looking at a flower we are immediately stimulated, awakened, taking it all in.  The intricacies of a flower with it’s bright colors stimulate the brain to gather more information.  We want to smell it, touch it.  Our sensory system is so detail oriented in sending the signals to the brain in fact, that we make judgments about our bodies based on our sight–like when we look in the mirror.  We judge ourselves based on what we see.  Our brains want more information so we touch and then again judge our bodies based on what we can grab in the mirror.  We become deflated, depressed, sad.  All based on our sense of sight.  WHAT IF we could change our VISION?  What would that be like?  What if you could change what you saw and felt in the mirror?  How would that feel?  Are you ready to change your vision?

Did you know?

Exercises to Relieve Sciatica and Low Back Pain - Stretching exercises can help reduce sciatic pain. Your sciatic nerve runs through your piriformis, a muscle located deep in your glutes. If the piriformis gets too tight, it can impinge the sciatic nerve, causing pain, tingling, and numbness in your leg.

Not even kidding….if you are in need of a pick me up–instead of grabbing a sugar filled latte try the downward facing dog!  You’ll immediately feel rejuvenated.  Check it out!

Grow where you’re planted


We, Tim my sister Andrea and I were fortunate enough to go to Juneau to visit my brother (shout out to Rob Campbell and his wife Milanka Campbell).  They took us the most amazing botanical garden.  The creator had vision like none other I had seen. The land was ravaged by a mudslide which toppled over many trees.  Instead of removing the trees, he tipped them upside down with ROOTS up and planted on top of those roots!  I just started thinking about how we can grow from our roots instead of our tree tops.  Our roots run SO deep and have so much character to build on.  How fortunate are WE to be able to do that if we just turn it upside down….look at the beauty of it all from a different perspective.  What will YOU plant on your roots??

Spinning today in the Octane Studio, Fuel Fitness is the name—you coming for a ride?  See you soon 12:10 – 12:50!

Grow where you’re planted….dig deep with your roots and let your imagination run wild!

When I couldn’t do this

20180622_170847 (1)

Yes, there was a time I couldn’t do this.  I went from being a cheerleader in high school…very flexible… very active and in shape to an overweight, out of shape, inflexible sedentary person in just one year of college.  The beer, pizza and long nights of studying and not moving finally caught up to me.  ALL 30 pounds of it….chasing me….finally caught up!  What changed?  My mindset (with a little health scare catalyst of course!)  Why do we wait until our health is at stake before we do something about it?  Leave your comments—I would love to hear your answers.

Your mindset is your best friend and your worst enemy….
