  • I love being a nurse. I love being an entrepreneur. I hate our broken healthcare system that left me working in an operating room for 21 straight hours with no water, no break, no managers who cared. So I quit. The next week I turned in my notice and retired from nursing at 28. 
Fast forward to September 2019. I was in the labor and delivery room, scheduling posts to Facebook from my phone. She was days old when I went Live on Sunday night to work. I was rocking mesh underwear and trying not to leak breast milk or sweat through the clothes I was selling that night because my hormones were all over the place and I leaked at the sound of her even smallest of cries. When you’re a self employed truly small business, if you don’t work, you don’t get paid. There is no maternity leave. I’m sad that I couldn’t focus 100% of my attention on her. I’ll never get that back. I’ve thought about a part time return to the nursing world to reclaim even a small constant stream of income to take some stress off my business but paying for child care would negate any dollar I could bring home. So I continue to hustle at home when I can, living that self employed life and being at home with my girl. No answer is the right answer, so I’ll stay where I am. Money isn’t everything, but is a necessity to a degree. As long as I’m taking care of people (physically when they’re unwell or emotionally by making sure you feel beautiful) and making an impact financially for my family, that’s all I want. So thank you if you’ve ever shopped with me. Thank you if you have ever allowed me to take care of you. Thank you for coming to my classes under the orange lights. Thank you for supporting me and also my family.

  • “I’m just on my way to the market to pick up vegetables, so my wife can start making dinner. Post retirement that’s become our routine!”⁣
“How’s the retired life?”⁣
“It’s going well -- it’s a lot about reading newspapers from cover to cover, longer walks with the wife and doing things in partnership. I buy the veggies - she cooks, I set the table - she clears it, she sometimes puts too much salt in the food - I still happily eat it!”

  • How is this a part of my life?  Everyone had such a good time at our SOLD OUT Event at Thompson Cadillac in Springfield Missouri.  It was sooo much fun and I am already looking forward to doing this again. 
Are you tired of working 1, 2 or even 3 jobs trying to hang on to what you have.  Do you even get to enjoy those things you are hanging on too since work may feel more like home to you. 
There is a way to do something you love and get to actually live and enjoy life.  I am so blessed to have found it👉or maybe it found me....and maybe you are here reading this because it’s finding you too. .

  • Part 2 of my visit to the famous Lodge on Mount Hood of Oregon. 😊 Been so long since I've seen Smokey the Bear 🐻. I thought they retired him because it seemed like the world no longer cared for the safety of the forests and woodlands. This was a fun experience for me overall. Near the end of it, I came across a forgotten credit card that I hope made it back to its owner after I gave it to a staff member of the lodge. Also got fooled into believing the snow was sand that was painted white. 😁

  • TIME FOR A CHANGE .....
Since the beginning of my journey, May 15 2019 my nutrition structure has been intermediate fasting on average 12-8pm eating window and 2 large meals a day and a snack in between sometimes (no clue the calories or macronutrients just eat Whole Foods, Favor Proteins, and Volume is key....
This is going to be an experiment because I don’t know if my body has adapted to my eating structure and I want to avoid the plato I have hit and any further ones in my journey. Being that I’m at the very last part of my journey where I have lost 80 lbs and revealing my abs is so close yet so far which is the most challenging part so I am going to be switching things up, might help so I am going to try. ...
4 meals a day BUT same amount of food. No snack. I don’t know how many calories I eat or the macronutrient break down but I will be splitting my meals up into 4 different ones and will continue to intermediate fast. So with eating more often this may shock my body, my metabolism and whatever else for the better I hope but I won’t know until I try it. ...
I have been doing 2 meals a day since the start because because I AM A FAT BOY AT HEART, I love big meals, I love feeling full, I hate to eat and feel hungry after but I want to try this 4 meals a day thing and see what happens to my body, how I feel, performance in the gym ect. .... #biggfitt  #fitness #fitfam #instafit #motivation #weightloss #fatloss #diet #nutrition #fitness #instalike #inspiration #fat2fit #xfatboy #transformation #healthy #goals #weightlosstransformation #lifting #exercise #football #offensivelinemen #athlete #offensivecenter #offensiveguard #Intermittentfasting #retired #retiredathlete #studentathlete #athletic #transformstiontuesday

  • Come check out the Laguna Beach Garden Club on Friday, March 13 at 9:30 and hear from our fantastic guest speaker Joe Lamp’l
Joe will be presenting
GROWING A GREENER WORLD – A BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK AT SOME OF THE MOST POPULAR STORIES FROM THE PAST 9 SEASONS
In this inspiring and motivational session, Joe draws on his extensive travel across America to produce and host his Emmy award-winning national public television series Growing a Greener World®. With an extensive collection of stories over 100 episodes, through beautiful high definition video and award-winning photography, you’ll meet some of the most fascinating people, see some of the most interesting places and discover organizations doing great things for the planet, all with an emphasis on gardening and a common thread that will empower each of us to advance the cause of these gardening heroes in our own communities.

Joe’s infatuation with gardening and nature began as a child after a run-in with his parents’ favorite shrub, he panicked and jammed the broken branch into the ground. A few weeks later, it had taken root. Joe was not only relieved; he was also hooked on horticulture.
Joe Lamp’l is the Creator, Host and Executive Producer of the Emmy-award-winning national PBS series, Growing a Greener World®, Founder of joegardener.com, and creator of the newjoe gardener Online Gardening Academy™. He is also the previous host of Fresh from the Garden on DIY Network, as well as on-air contributor to The Today Show, Good Morning America and The Weather Channel. Past awards include The American Horticultural Society’s B.Y. Morrison Communication Award, which recognizes effective and inspirational communication—through print, radio, television, podcasts and other online media.

Meetings are held at:
Laguna Presbyterian Church, Tankersley Hall
415 Forest Ave
Laguna Beach, Ca 92651

  • This picture reminds me of the good place I’m in right now. This is a genuine smile of happiness.

No, everything is not perfect. I’m still trying to figure out my place in life after retiring from the military, but I feel like I’m finally starting to lose the anxiety and feeling of “what’s next for me?” I have faith the path I’m currently on will lead me to the place I need to be.

The last year has been a learning experience. I’ve been figuring out what needs to be in my life, and what I can live without.

What’s helped me the most is surrounding myself with some great people I’ve been lucky enough to meet. I couldn’t have gotten through it without some of you who have been there for me.

As a reflection, some of my favorite moments has been the volunteer work I do with @global_surgical_medical_group @huntersevenfoundation and @mentors4mil. It may not pay the bills, but it has been fulfilling in so many other ways I’ve needed.

The sacrifices I made getting to this place has all been worth it in the long run.

  • Today marks 1000 days since my last day of work. Loving retirement so far!  Blessed to have had the option to retire early ... and also worked really hard and sacrificed a lot to get there.

And so far the retirement alcohol budget is holding up! 🤣😂🥂
