I was working out at another gym and I met a friend, Martha. She found FGF and encouraged me to join.
I started Farmgirl two years ago. I would come two times a week, not regularly enough. I was very intimidated by the lifting portions of the workouts. Now, I actually enjoy lifting quite a bit. I started writing down my PR’s in the green binder and I like having that number in my head. I’m better at pushing myself, trying to improve and set goals. I’m proud that I come 3-4 times a week on a regular basis. It’s amazing to me that I get up and complete a hard workout before 6:30 am. 😅
Increasing what I can lift feels great. Heck, just showing up is accomplishment!
I’m investing time this summer to work on meal planning. I want to have it all in place when school starts again in September. My workout goals include being able to do a pull-up. Even with bands, it’s a huge challenge for me, so maybe by the end of October and the next Pennies for Pull-Ups!
Anything that makes me feel like a bad ***
I think I like wall balls, can’t believe I’m saying that! Turkish get-ups are definitely my least favorite. They are so, so awkward and yuck!
Stay vertical girl!

“I may not yet, but someday I will!” At school we call this the power of yet.
I have much more energy to teach first graders all day. I leave the gym in the early morning and I feel energized. I have more stamina for all of my life. I notice a huge difference mentally if I don’t work out; I’m not on my game.
That I’m sticking to my regular, early morning workouts.
I’m busy reading, planning and teaching my first graders. I love what I get to do every day! On the home front, I have a teenage son and teenage daughter. They are involved in dance, theater, cross country and track. My husband and I love to watch the kids do their thing!

A teacher; I just always knew!
My son and daughter try to teach me current dance moves, the floss. 🙄 We all end up hysterically laughing. 😂 My daughter enjoys recording me and sharing on Instagram. Usually without my knowledge or permission!
I love salads with lots of crunch!
I used to run regularly. I ran a half marathon about eight years ago.
