{Virtual} Coffee Date

Hi Friends!

It’s that time again, time to sit and get REAL with each other. Alright it’s time to “cozy up” in your comfiest of yoga pants and pour yourself a warm cup of coffee and let’s chat! It’s also raining and perfect her in So CAL, so I may have more than just one cup of coffee today 😉


If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you that my Husband has still been sick 🙁 He did find out it’s a bad sinus and ear infection, but he is still fighting. This is the longest he has ever been sick and it’s starting to wear on me a bit. I want him better so I can kiss him, sleep in the same bed with him (the couch is getting old) and have Daddy back. I could not praise single Mom’s enough, they ROCK! Rylee has been amazing for the most part, but she has her tantrum moments and I am still working on learning the art of being a mother 😉 It is a marathon…so not a sprint! Patience is something I can hold for a long time, but then there is this breaking point and that is what I am working on not getting to!

If we were having coffee this morning  I would tell you that we will be launching our very first VIRTUAL REFRESH SUMMIT very soon!!! I am so excited because it will be open and free for anyone to join! We have some amazing ladies speaking and kicking our butt in workouts. We also have a date for the next live Refresh Summit that will launch soon as well. God is on the move!

If we were having coffee this morning  I would tell you how I can’t wait to get to the beach this summer!!! I used this bag in Hawaii from Fivesse and it was perfect. Love the colors, pockets and how it’s water proof. I AM A BAG GIRL!!! It made me excited to pack it and take it with us very soon to our favorite beaches. The folks at Fivesse were so sweet and are giving my readers a diiscount of 10% by using the code nhershoes. Well you can get any of their super cute bags with that code.

If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you that counting macros is getting easier, but is not my favorite. Remember that ten week challenge that I am taking on to lose body fat %, well part of that is learning what my body thrives on and how it burns fat better. I have been working on getting a balance of 40% fat, 35% protein, and 25% carbs. It is quite the science, but I am getting the hang of it.

If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you that since we got back from HI, it has been non-stop around our house…in a good way! I started the first round of the Summer Shred on Monday and everyone is so great! Encouraging and pushing one another and just being all together inspiring. If you missed your chance to get in, I will be opening up one more month in June so stay tuned for sign ups!

If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you that our weather here in CA is WACK! It is beautiful this week for sure, but my allergies are all over the place and I am so so so sick of not being able to breathe. I am so interested in essential oils and I know they would probably help, just wish they weren’t so expensive and that I would just JUMP in and do it! I have been taking a Claritin and using Flownaze daily and it is helping!

If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you that I love my friends. I mean of course that is why they are my friends right? But I do truly love the community that God has surrounded me with. I feel like no matter what life throws at you, if you have an amazing support group that will love on you and help you walk through yuck sometimes it makes life 100% better!

If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you to pray for my Family. It’s been a rough season as we have had to watch one of our family members walk through some tough things. Somedays I can’t help but just cry, cry because I want to carry all of their mess and be there for them every minute of every day. I know I can’t be and I also know that God is there every minute of everyday. Trusting isn’t always easy, but I am giving it my all!

If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you that I am working a bit up at Forest Home this summer (the camp I used to work at). I will be teaching a family zumba class on Monday nights (crazy right?!) and helping in the toddlers room in the morning with RJ with me. It will be a lot of fun being up there and having lunch with the Hubs everyday. RJ and I are also going to Chicago in two weeks to visit my Dad and then taking a trip to Washington to see my dear friend Ronni! It’s going to be such a fun summer! Oh and I can’t forget about Forest Home Summer Family Camp this year, it will be our 6th summer going and now that RJ is a little bit bigger it’s going to be such a blast!

  1. Love you too girl! And I love your heart and your coffee dates!

  2. This is the first shred, in a long time, I haven’t done! I miss it but right now this is what I need to be doing….caring for my kiddos and moving my body as best I can…can’t wait for the Refresh Summit!

  3. Thanks for the coffee date friend! I love you and miss you. Continuing to pray for you and your hubby.

  4. Yay, I’m so happy you have a date for the Refresh summit. I would also love if you can send out an email when the refresh summit dates are available. I’d definitely like to come.

  5. Yay! Coffee dates are the best! I’d tell you it sounds like you’re being strong, even though you’ve had some tough stuff thrown your way. I’d remind you that you are a strong woman and inspiring plenty through your blog and daily choices. I’d also remind you, you are an awesome Momma to RJ and she’s lucky to have you in her life! I’d tell you that I’m feeling a little lost lately. I have a great job…but I want to do something I’m passionate about, but I haven’t quite figured out what that is yes. I would want to talk about my financial inadequacies, but be too embarrassed. I’d also be on my fifth cup by now 😉 Happy Weekend! xoxo, ganeeban
