“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” – Anthony Bourdain .

I never started this business of virtual fitness coach to make money. I truly wanted to change lives. I did not even think of the fact that one day I would be changing lives by mentoring women to do what I do. ✨To change lives and help other women become the best version of themselves ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨I feel like such a proud mom watching my partners on our team spreading their wings and soaring!✨ Soaring higher than I could ever imagine and filling my cup even more than ever💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨Rock on girls and keep on inspiring like I know you can. We are on a mission to build an empire and build a legacy inspiring one woman at a time✨
Snagging pink salmon in Valdez last summer
We finally got into our own apartment!! 💃🏾 💃🏾 💃🏾 It has been tough trying to find a place here in Valdez (the housing market is craaaazy) but we are so excited we finally have the keys! - If you got a chance to watch my stories yesterday (they are saved in a highlight if you missed them✨) you saw the apartment desperately needs a decorators touch (I would like to speak to the crazy person who picked out those wall colors 😤) but boy am I excited to have this project!! Do you have any tips for decorating a rental? Please let me know!!! . . . . . #rentersclub #rentertips #renterhacks #interiorlover #artist #valdezartist #valdezalaska #alaskaliving #firsttimerenters #apartmentliving #artists #artlovers #interiordesign #dreaminterior #greenwalls #removablewallpaper #lifehack #popyacolor #colorismyjam #colorcolourlovers #colorallaround #valdezartcoop
“Blue” is now live on YouTube! Take a dreamy dive into the steep mountains, glaciers, and icy rivers of Valdez with a crew of boundary-pushing female fat bike athletes from Alaska and beyond. @alynicklas & I filmed Blue around this time last year at the Valdez Fat Bike Bash. Watching the athletes tear down alpine chutes and catch air on glacial rifts was such an experience. The creativity - the drive - the tenacity - the beauty - the occasional ridiculousness. We’re stoked to share it with you. Link in bio☝️
Do you have neutral walls in your home? Hang up one of @rhondawegnertaylorart fun prints to add a pop of color! You will be able to find her work at the co-op next month when we open!
It’s crazy 😜 that this has been my life saver daily habit before I was a mom .. I felt okay just rolling with the punches working out and reading my shape magazines or muscle fitness ones doing it that way so when I b came a mom at 22 I waited the 2 weeks then I hopped on my exercise bike and rode slow for 15 minutes each day and my mom had made healthy foods so I followed suit and read more .. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With no real structure there was really no real results like these but I was and am still all about feeding my body food for energy from the inside !! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s nice to have found a purpose that goes hand in hand with my decision to commit and succeed in my healthy living made simple now compared to before = me always researching healthier and healthier how ever there’s nothing like science + fitness + nutrition + community and when I say community, I mean like people like me , people in my shoes, open minded and wanting to work on being healthy and help others on this path as well to be able to do what ya want , with who ya want freely and confident all over !!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So yes it’s not about the surface , that’s the side effect that came with this job that worked my mindset 200% ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you keep doing what you are doing , well you will keep getting what you are getting !!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stretch your mind and realize having purpose rocks in life and reaching out to someone that has what your looking for is key 🔑 to getting what you want !!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know you know I’m always gonna be living life simple when it comes down to getting and shape and getting healthy !! Looking for a side gig ?? This will not only change your body but will totally change your life #mindsetiseverything folks!!!
Feels good to be alive

I’m bored....some1 should hmu!🤷🏼♀️🤪
My trip to Alaska was shorter than I wanted it to be. I honestly was scheming on how to stay and spend more time in these mountains, but the weather kicked us out and it’s best not to argue with Mother Nature. I am left to day dreaming of standing on top of lines in this magical place until next year. . . Big 🖤 to the crew who made it such an epic trip. #jaunconditional #alaska #takemebackthere #whereswaldo #simplysnowboarding

Do you see this chaos behind me? OMG ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I could have totally used this as an excuse to not push play! I literally had a 4’x6’ area and trust me I hear it all the time “but I don’t have room to workout in my living room “ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I would have totally said this before too but I no longer use that as an excuse. Excuses are just road blocks to your goals! Find a way around that roadblock. I have worked out in my bedroom, hallways in small hotels, and even my garage when we had company over. Trust me if you want it you can find a way! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now can we talk about how being half packed is giving me so much anxiety 🤦🏼♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #believeinyou #selflove #standup #positivevibes #mindsetiseverything #beyou #positive #strong #thisisme #lovelife #dream #leader #riseup #madeformore #anxiety #movingsucks #homeworkouts #only30minutes #40something #fitspo #inspiration #healthy #biggoals #goals #dreambig #balancedlifestyle #mombod #coachlife #lifestyle

This last weekend at the @vdzsnowmachineclub mountain man hillclimbs was a blast. Had some sled malfunctions for the drags but did my best at the hillclimbs but don’t have the experience yet to be getting into the podium spots. Thanks to all the volunteers for helping make this event happen. Im already making plans for next years event.

Just wrapped up with the @amga1979 AMGA ASGC in Valdez, AK after 10 days of sun and white-bird ski mountaineering. Great terrain, stable snow, solid instructors and a funny, capable group of aspirant guides meant we were able to #sendit most days. But there's plenty of tricky judgement calls in this game, like when you have to back off a chute near a bergschrund in a whiteout and backtrack down the glacier. I signed up for the marathon, not the sprint. We learned that after the Exxon Valdez oil tanker spill in1989, a community group from Valdez has practiced a Spill Drill every year. Volunteers fire up their boats and "respond" to the Bay to surround and isolate the possible oil spill. It's a great example of a grassroots effort to protect their backyard and their future. And pathetic that a billion dollar industry wouldn't have their own infrastructure in place for emergencies. So this Earth Day, let's remember that Communities > Corporations.
Morning coffee to this! Our Heavenly father is so good!
Its okay if things don’t go as planned... 🤷♀️ We can always learn something! • • That’s why you gotta get out of your comfort zone and try new shit! Humbled and inspired to ride more spines! I call this one “Spine Air chair” I think if I wasn’t so hesitant I could have road out, but as soon as I went off the small diving board spine, I got scared and just leaned back... 😂 next time, hopefully I’ll get it! Love you Alaska 🙏💙🌏 #goprosnow #jaunconditional

After turning around and cancelling a trip to shoup bc of winds and big seas, the sun somehow came out and we caught some shrimp
A happy Mia on top of Odyssey Mountain in Alaska. Super stoked to have passed the AMGA Ski Guide Exam. A big thanx to @mikepoborsky and @extremealpine for making the exam a fun time! It sure was awesome to train with @mountain_guide_mike @natedisser and @monkey_miyazaki , and the elusive rabbits 🐰. Lots of laughter during our week together! 😊😊😊. I’m so lucky to have had so many amazing mentors along the way. You all know who you are!!! 🙏🙏🙏🙏. And of course I do have the biggest supporter of my mountain shenanigans back home. My hubby @davetucholke is pretty much the best 💕
A picture from one of the most naturally beautiful places I’ve ever seen that experienced one of the most tragic oil spills in our human history. It doesn’t feel appropriate to say “happy” Earth Day... rather it feels like it should be a day of mourning and reflection and maybe atonement? If we’re completely honest with ourselves, we don’t deserve this earthly home and I wish we could love it better, I feel like we’re trying but... “She's resilient no matter what we put her through. If she can come back from that, there’s still hope.” -Mark Rockwell 🌏🌿🌊🏔
happy earth day to my favorite state, and happy fourth birthday to my favorite black lab; thanks for always keeping me company on the fuel dock, jumping in after sea otters, and entertaining @ladythespringer
