Truly knowing your self worth is one of the single greatest accomplishments a person can have 🖤
1. Know that you’re flawed and it’s beautiful
2. Know that there are people whose life will image your own. You’re never alone.
3. Honor yourself by setting the bar high in every aspect of your life.
4. You are always worthy of love, from friends, family, a significant other or strangers.
We are all so Incredibly perfect in our imperfections and it took me years to realize this truth. Embrace your darkest and lightest places and let your soul become in tune with those expanding moments in your life. Then, step forward into your truest self!

HAPPY 21st BIRTHDAY TO ONE OF MY FAVORITE HUMANS ♥️ (my baby brother)
I cannot wait for you to come to Denver in two weeks to celebrate with me!!! I just love you to pieces and am so beyond excited for your future. It is bright, you can do anything your heart desires, and most importantly I truly believe in you! Xoxo ~ Love, Your Big Sister
Went hiking in May, the weather said no snow fall. The weatherman was wrong.
I am channeling my inner Colorado woman and embracing the altitude! 🗻🥾 ❄️♥️ so stoked to go explore more with my hiking friends!
Stop looking for the right person and start being the right person 🖤
I’m so convinced that my future husband is going to be extraordinary. I am growing, I am leaning and slowly becoming a better person than I was yesterday. I am very intentional with who I meet, and because of that I know I will not settle for anything less than what I deserve 🥂
Still intentionally single and working on being the best possible version of myself! Looking forward to meeting him someday but right now I’m being “selfish” living for my own life elevation.
It’s so easy to create healthy habits like eating your fruits and veggies or exercising but what about healthy mental habits?
I think about this A LOT! I am constantly learning how to become more in tune with my daily energy, how to make the most of my thoughts and how to rewire my brain to see a positive outcome even in a shitty situation.
A couple tips on manifesting a clear mind:
(1) Delete garbage people out of your life - that means, block your ex, stop following up with that girlfriend who never reaches out to you, stop planning get together’s with people who you would rather not spend time with because all they talk about is drama or themselves.
(2) Learn to say no, if you struggle with this then practice it. If you need a night in, say no to going out. If you need to save money and not stress, don’t go on a road trip with friends.
(3) Be incredibly conscious of your 5 closest friends. Just because you have known someone for years doesn’t mean they are there to elevate your life. Actively seek out people who are “better” than you because you will naturally rise to the occasion to also become a better person - in your job, around your spouse, and with yourself!
(4) Dig into your “not so good qualities” and tackle them head on. Are you insecure, are you jealous, do you beat yourself up because you don’t feel smart enough at work, do you struggle with remaining on task, do you snap at people easily... WHAT DO YOU NEED TO IMPROVE ON. Try to pinpoint why you act that way and start diving into how you can overcome this quality!
ALL ABOUT THAT GROWTH ♥️🌈🙌🏼
Since you are like no other being created since the beginning of time, you are incomparable. ~ Brenda Ueland
I hope today is as perfect as your individuality ♥️ May we be supportive, caring, daring, strong, independent women with a true grit for life and hone a burning desire for embracing discomfort!
This weeks Intention: “I intend to lead by example”
WHAT IS YOUR INTENTION FOR THE WEEK?
I eat glitter for breakfast 🦄🌈 & popsicles for dinner 🍭
➡️ On a more serious note, here is my intention for the day: pursue productivity and be open to receiving differing opinions (I’ll let y’all interpret that to best fit your day)
It is so reassuring to know that I am genuinely happy with where I am at in my life right now. That doesn’t mean I have stopped growing, it just means that I have confidence in the direction I am heading!
I am purposefully single (boys don’t DM me I’m not in the mood 💁🏼♀️ #selflove
), I actively cut negative people out of my life, I am in-tune with my daily energy and where I spend it. I am getting out of my comfort zone and embracing new hobbies and practicing mindfulness.
Get into the mind space where growth and happiness are the only options!
I don’t “shit rainbows, glitter and butterflies” 🌈🦄🦋 every day of my life but I definitely don’t get into a deep negative mindset like I used to. I know in my gut that there isn’t anything I cannot rise above and this is the single thought that keeps me in a state of mental balance and happiness.
Happy Monday ☀️ Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!💖
Back in the gym this week, kicking it off with a upper body + cardio session 💪🏻💦
I picked up a week pass at the gym so I plan on getting in a few more workouts before we head back to Edmonton ☺️
If you want it, work for it 🔥 #simpleasthat
STATE OF GRATITUDE ♥️
I am so fucking thankful right now. I am thankful for getting denied to all 11 colleges I applied for except @wsupullman otherwise I would never have met my best friend @kaitlynn_hensch
I am so thankful I met a guy online and moved to Arkansas right after college to see if we could make things work. It was hands down the worst and most toxic relationship I have ever and will ever be in. It taught me to truly and deeply love myself and trust my gut. If he hadn’t brought me to Arkansas I would never have met my ride or die crew @kevl246 , @jodielainev , @evanmccombs , @im_amad_ or my Arkansas girlfriends: @thehaleydaily and @ashleydraper87
I am so thankful I started my career in a small firm because the more I hated my job, the environment I was in and seeing my ex around town all the time the more it pushed me to jump out of my comfort zone. I picked a spot on the map, sold everything I owned and drove to Colorado!
I would not be in Denver at an amazing firm with amazing new friends if every single one of those life events had not happened.
I am blessed for the detours in life because it all led me to this very moment.
MY BESTIE GOT A PROMOTION TO MANAGER AT WORK! ♥️😍🔥 BOSS BABE!
Girl I’m so freaking proud of you! Way to be a bad ass, driven, hard working woman with goals! EEEEEPPPP 😍🙌🏼 #proudfriend
Happy Sunday! ✨ Crushed an INTENSE workout today and really enjoyed it so I thought I would share!
I tried to take short rests and keep my HR up 🔥 It took me 50 min and I burned 400 cal! So, save it and give it a try!
🔥 INTENSE DUMBBELL WORKOUT 💦
•Incline Interval Running - 20 minutes
•DB Thrusters 3x10-12reps
•DB Reverse Lunge + Knee Up 3x12-15
•3 Rounds: 15 Pushups SS 40 Ab Bikes
•DB Walking Lunges 3x12 reps (each leg)
•DB Clean + Press 3x10
•Plank Hip Dips 3x12each side
•Wall Sit failure 2x till failure
LETS TALK TRANSPARENCY:
I canceled my gym membership because I’m saving $80 a month by working out at my office gym right now ($960 a year). I canceled Netflix because I’m saving $120 a year. I canceled iTunes because I’m saving $120 a year and I don’t need Spotify and iTunes. I budget my grocery bill to $300 a month tops because that keeps me from buying unnecessary things. My fun budget right now is $300 for going out, that includes dinners, drinks, Uber’s, coffees, workout class dates, new clothes etc.... anything I’m not doing at home! I don’t use credit cards, I stick to cash basis because my 22 year old self built up a nice pocket of debt. Now that I’m 26 I’m cleaning up the mess my 22 year old self made financially.
There is no shame in saving money and being smart about it. I have goals that will require capital so I’m making present day adjustments that will add up to big gains in the future.
I’m owning up to being a young adult who has to be money conscious because fixed expenses like; car payments, student loan payments, rent, and phone payments add up.
Own your truth and right now I own up to mine. Emma’s truth: I am a budget conscious “broke” young adult who has no shame in turning down events because they don’t fit my budget. ♥️🙌🏼 #adulting
If there was a photo that described my mood, it would have to be this one:
•Taking myself seriously
•No time for flakey people
•Avoiding all things that don’t elevate me
I’ve been doing some spring cleaning in my personal life lately and boy does it feel great! I haven’t been this centered in while and now I want you all to consider doing the same!
(1) Say “no” and “yes” and mean it. No more b.s. “maybe” answers. We are confident women who are Intentional!Practice being direct.
(2) Take out the garbage. Stop allowing things into your space that don’t serve your upward and positive elevation in life. No more iffy friends, no more checking up on people who don’t concern themselves with you, no more dating boys who think ghosting is ok, no more taking on too many “extra curricular” activities that just wear your energy thin (ie - hobbies or volunteer work or extra projects at work that don’t progress you forward)
(3) Find your “wanna-be” tribe! I cannot say this enough, find those men and women who embody characteristic that you seek to hone in 2019. Those driven, high energy, true grit folk that speak wisdom into your life ♥️ I love those people. I need those people. I am actively seeking those people!
🍑🎉 New PR - 225lbs!
My form is starting to go BUT this is 20lbs above my last PR 😳 so I am HYPED!!
Things to improve on:
1️⃣ Keeping my knees pushed out
2️⃣ Balancing the weight in my feet. You can see my heels slightly raise, the weight goes into the front of the foot.
Other than these few things, I am so pumped for a new PR 🎉
✨If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will see results ✨
Really keeping this in my mind lately, trying to shift my focus to my actions and their reasoning rather than my results.
I have a BIG summer coming up and I want to feel confident and proud of my hard work 🙌🏻 Looking forward to seeing what I can accomplish over the next few months 🔥
Today’s workout was cardio + upper body 💪🏻 And while I still have a cold, I am feeling strong and motivated!
#sweatingforthewedding #beavisionary #summershredding
Influencers vs. Everyone else
If I posted a pic of me in my cubicle from January-April during Tax Season no one would give a shit. If you post something unique, trendy and travel inspired people give a shit.
Remember, The influencers you follow aren’t traveling and perfect all the time!
To all my babes out there who feel like they are uninteresting, take a chill pill. It’s not realistic to travel and look “on point” 24/7 - believe me I’m going on day 20 with no makeup and I think my under eye circles are a bit dramatic at this point!
YOU DO YOU BOO 😘 don’t worry about how perfect everyone else lives appear on the gram. You are doing your best and you are striving and you will take that vacation when it makes sense with your life! xoxo ~ Emma
Spent 65 hours in a my cube this week and all I can think about is taking a mini mountain vacation ♥️ only 6 more weeks of tax season.... #wegotthis
Saturday Sweat Sesh 🔥💦
Today was a heavy leg day, and I’m happy to say I squatted 205! For 3 sets even 😏 I haven’t squatted that heavy in weeks due to my knee, but it felt good today! 🙌🏻
Now it’s time to do some cleaning, run some errands, relax... Oh and EAT! 👅
Hope you’re all having a productive day so far and crush your workouts 💥
BACK ON TRACK 🔥💪🏻
The past 3-4 days I’ve definitely been indulging a bit too much. Snacking on chocolate has become a daily occurrence 🙈 While there’s nothing wrong with having treats in moderation, I was going a little too hard 😅
I definitely feel like I’m retaining water and my skin is breaking out a bit... SO I’m back on track with my healthy habits today! 🌱
If you fell off track this weekend, or “messed up”...don’t feel guilty or ashamed! This happens, is LIFE!
Don’t dwell. Don’t skip meals. Don’t make yourself work harder to burn it off. Focus on the goals ahead of you! ✨ 💕
Yesterday’s leg workout was killer 🍑🔥
My glutes are feeling sore already this morning, which I am not complaining about 😏 #bootygains
Save this workout and give it a go! 👇🏻
Warm Up + Activation
Hip Thrusts 2xAMRAP (This should hurt!)
Back Squats 4x6-8reps (Go heavy)
Sumo Deadlifts 4x8-10
Weighted Single Leg Step Up 3x10
Goblet Squats 3x8-10
Jump squat + Jump Lunges 3xAMRAP 💦

Who is ready to make some moves this week and crush their goals? 🙋🏼♀️
I’ve mentioned in previous posts that I like to take 10-15 minutes on Monday morning to plan my workouts, write out my goals and To-Dos. This leaves me feeling MOTIVATED 🙌🏻
I’d love to know some of your weekly goals or things you want to work on this week (comment below!) 👇🏻
A few of mine are to make healthier choices with my diet 🌱get 6 solid workouts in 💪🏻 drink 3L of water a day 💦 I also have some errands written down and some accounting work I have to get done 🤓
Happy Friday! Feeling good about my training and diet this week. I just finished up a full body workout 🔥 Hope you’re getting your sweat on today too! 💦
I also made some #rawvegan
squares 😍 Check out my story for some food porn!
#fullbodyworkout #beavisionary #flexfriday
Being my own motivation today ✌🏻✨ Proud of my progress - Both mental and physical.
I am about to crush a full body fat blasting workout 🔥💦 I hope you’re getting your SWEAT on today too!
Been a bit quiet on social media lately..sometimes I just need a break from all the scrolling, ya know? 🤷🏼♀️

Tax Season Update:
•I cut my hair off
•I gave up caffeine in November
•I am working a lot (60-65 hour weeks right now)
•I cancelled all subscriptions other than Spotify. (I don’t watch TV during the week other than a roomie Bachelor night 🌹)
•I spend my evenings and weekend studying for my Health and Life Insurance exam
•I am working out 4 days a week (mix of gym time and Pilates)
•I don’t eat food brought to the office and stick to my homemade meals (just my way of finding balance in my diet)
•To Sum It Up: I’m grinding and it’s nice to see that creating and following a strict schedule during the week allows me to accomplish so much!
Overall, I’m doing pretty great this tax season. I am feeling mentally balanced, mostly tired, definitely thankful I have friends who are understanding when I’m a little MIA lol ♥️
Lookin at this week like I’m ready to SLAY it ✨ Happy Monday! 🙌🏻💗
I always feel extra motivated on Monday’s. I make an effort to take 10-15 minutes in the morning to write down some weekly goals, my to-do list and my workout plan. This always makes me feel prepared and ready to take it all on! 👊🏻
If you’re finding Monday’s hard- give this a go and I promise you’ll feel ready to take on the week!✨
#gymshark66 #beavisionary #mondaymotivation
Happy Saturday Friends🙂
Had a great workout today! It was a body weight workout and it was under an hour. I burned over 460 calories 🔥💦 Proof you don’t need to spend all day at the gym ✌🏻
#gymshark66 #beavisionary #feelinggood
Don’t skip training upper body, Ladies!💥💪🏻
A few years ago I genuinely believed that lifting upper body weights would make me bulky or have arms like the hulk 😂 Trust me, I’ve been there!
But it couldn’t be more WRONG 🚫 Lifting heavy wont make you bulky. It will help you build lean muscle and a strong upper body!
I’ve been doing upper body workouts for years and I have yet to look like the hulk 😂
HAPPY FRIDAY💃🏼 I just finished up 45 min of cardio and a few ab circuits🔥
Personally, I love cardio! I know that isn’t the norm but I love pushing myself, getting my HR up and my sweat on 💦 Anyone else?!
#cardioishardio #gymshark66 #beavisionary
I had an AMAZING workout today! My back + biceps are TOAST💥💪🏻
I really wanted to push myself today so I added 10 min of HIIT at the start of my workout 💦 I also made sure to focus on that mind muscle connection and engage my muscles 🔥
I hope you all took action towards your goals today, too!
#gymshark66 #beavisionary #backandbiceps
This is me saying goodbye to my social life!
Today is the very first day of tax season and I also signed up to study and take my Health and Life insurance exams before April 18th.... this will either be a really good growth opportunity or a big fat crash and burn kind of tax season.....
First plan of action: get a planner and map out my study schedule ASAP!
Honestly.... I am feeling a little bit of anxiety right now having added this study plan on top of my work schedule but anyone can do anything for 3 months right?! #icandothis
We are starting to become regulars at driving 4.5 hours just to hangout the mountains for an afternoon! 🏔♥️ #colorado
Currently taking applications for hot mountain men 🏔🧗🏼♂️🚵🏼♂️⛷🏂🎣
Last lift of the week 💪🏻 I just finished up week 4 of my program and I am feeling strong as ever! Rest day tomorrow and my body is ready for it 😅
I hope you’re all having an amazing Sunday so far 💕 I am going to do some meal prep (chicken, asparagus, vegan squares) and I also have soccer tonight (aka. Extra cardio 💦)
Happy Saturday ✨💕 Spent the morning with my bestie drinking the BEST chai tea lattes ever and enjoying this warmer weather!
Now it’s time for a killer leg workout 🍑 Anyone else training legs today?!
Don’t judge my crazy workout hair 💁🏼♀️ Hope you’re all having a great Wednesday so far!💕
I asked you guys a few weeks ago for some songs that pump you up for the gym - thank you all for your recommendations! I updated my playlist 😎 Keep them coming...
I am going to be saving more songs in my “Gym Jam” highlight if you’re interested!
Ps. Still loving these headphones 🎧😍 #beatsbydre #gymshark66 #beavisionary
Something I have been repeating to myself a lot lately: “Lower your expectations, higher your standards.”
This is actually very difficult for me. I expect some people to give as much effort, passion and time as I do in certain situations. The reality is, you cannot expect other people to do what YOU WOULD DO, because THEY AREN’T YOU.
By no means have I mastered this concept. All I know is that I will be a much happier person when the “pinnacle of expectancy” is lowered while keeping my values and standards high.
Anyone have thoughts on this? Do you agree? Have you mastered this?
Moved to Colorado 6 months ago. I am more obsessed with my home every single week ♥️ hands down the best decision of 2018!
Talk about getting myself out of my comfort zone, I had no friends, only been to Colorado for 48 hours before moving, and I was starting a completely new job!
Get comfortable being uncomfortable 😘
Being my own motivation this week 💥👊🏻
I am bringing the healthiest, happiest, strongest and BEST version of myself! ✨
#mondaymotivation #beavisionary #gymshark66
Weekend at the mountains with my Denver Babes ♥️
Not your “Standard Tax Accountant.”
Learn to enjoy the process and the results will come 💥💪🏻
I’m almost done week 3 of my workout program and I’m LOVING the journey!
I’ve set myself some pretty big goals this year and I’m really commiting to making them a reality. This means enjoying the little changes and every day efforts.
THATS when results and success comes!✨
#gymshark66 #beavisionary #flexfriday
Ladies, set higher standards ♥️
I have had so many messages from women asking how I manage to be happy or how I managed to cut out shitty men from my life. The answer is: Love yourself enough to recognize when you deserve more.
STOP DATING OR PURSUING MEN WHO:
1. Cancel plans on you - not just once but it is a constant issue.
2. Put your needs on the back burner.
3. Make you question their loyalty.
4. Talk a big talk but their actions say otherwise.
5. Don’t make an effort to get to know your friends.
6. Don’t see your potential to be successful.
7. Make you question if you’re a loving partner.
8. Close minded. How can you expect to grow as a person if your “other half” refuses to grow as well.
9. Who treat you as an option. If they don’t have any other plans that are better they will shoot you a 9pm text.
10. Who make you feel guilty for making other plans. Ex: Said Boy didn’t secure a time slot in your weekend plans, and gets upset because you are having brunch with your girl.
11. There are a lot of other reason but here are 10 that I can think of off the top of my head.
Ladies - you deserve so much more than to consume your energy with petty, self-serving boys. It’s not rocket science, cut them out of your life because being alone and single is ALWAYS better than dating a piece of trash who doesn’t value you 😘♥️
PROGRESS > perfection ✨
Focus on becoming healthier, stronger and more knowledgeable...the rest will take care of itself 😈 That’s my motto for 2019
Had a great workout today - I hope you did too! Quads + shoulders are on FIAAHH🔥 Now to make some food and relax ✌🏻 #beavisionary #gymshark66
2010 vs. 2018
I definitely didn’t have to go back a full 10 years to find an amazing “Glow Up” photo! Goodbye braces, terrible eyebrows, and incredibly thick bangs! #10yearchallenge
I definitely wasn’t the cool, trendy girl in high school, I didn’t get my braces on until two weeks before graduation, I never got asked to a dance, and was totally the nerd!
Looking forward to my week ♥️
A stranger told me I was beautiful today as I was waiting in line for coffee and it absolutely made my afternoon.
The power of a compliment is undeniable. It feels amazing when someone goes out of their way to tell you a positive thought that crossed their mind. I absolutely love the word beautiful, it’s not used often but holds such weight when spoken.
I personally try to compliment people on a regular basis and today just reaffirmed why I do it. It makes your heart happy, you glow a little more, and it brings a smile to your face when someone says kind things.
Pay positivity forward because everyone deserves to be called beautiful ♥️
Ordinarily Un-Ordinary 🖤
According to every social media page, some of the books I have read and talks with people in my generation, having a “9 to 5pm Job” is incredibly ordinary and unfulfilling. You should really seek to be a social media influencer / star to live your best life.
News flash, I have met the most extraordinary people who do more than just wake up, drive to work, drive home, sleep and repeat.
I have met people with “9 to 5 pm jobs” who set goals and crush them, some are mothers and fathers, they travel the world, they set up comfortable retirement plans for the future, they volunteer and help the community, they mentor like minded people in their spare time, they have amazing hobbies, they go out and change policy, they find a great deal of purpose when they are helping clients achieve their personal or business needs, they set up foundations, they make meaningful connections with others and spend quality time with their inner circle without having to take photos of or film every moment.
For anyone who feels like their job isn’t “cutting it” in a world of social media influencers, think again ♥️🙏🏼 You have so much personal influence, you get to change lives from your office, if you have spare time then get out and volunteer and make an even bigger impact! Your life has so much purpose and meaning because you get to live an “Ordinarily” Un-Ordinary life!
💦Cardio + Abs 🔥DONE! Not going to lie, today was difficult...I just felt tired and unmotivated!
Then I thought of my goals and what I needed to do to achieve them. I visualized myself getting there and THAT motivated me!
5km run + a killer ab circuit. Feeling GOOD now...it’s not always easy but it’s ALWAYS worth it! 🙌🏻
Happy Friday 😘
Let’s Talk: Blocking People
I am at this point in my adult life where I don’t feel the need to absolutely go out of my way for shitty people. I have absolutely encountered potential friends and potential guys to date who are mentally draining. The type of person to use you, the type who never puts in any effort, the type to make you feel bad for no reason at all, and who give you that gut feeling of annoyance and anxiety. These are the type of people who make you question yourself in a negative way, you wonder if you’re actually a good friend, a kind soul, or overly sensitive.
I know you all have or have had people in your life like that. My advice: block them. It’s not your life’s purpose to entertain people who add 0 value to your ultimate happiness and who add 0 value to your personal growth.
It’s ok to be selfish with who you spend your time with. It’s ok to cut off ties without firm closure. It’s ok to block people from your life because this is YOUR LIFE, Take charge of it.
The moment you stop worrying about how the other, happiness draining, person is going to feel when you cut them off is the moment you take a step in the right direction. Be mindful of who you allow into your space ♥️🙏🏼
We all get anxiety over “what is the next step we should take in life??”
I applied to 100 total jobs in 2017 in San Diego, Nashville, Dallas, Las Vegas and Austin. I was so desperate to get out of accounting and Arkansas I would have taken just about anything. I even applied to be a cocktail waitress and had the interview in Las Vegas because I felt so lost.
I didn’t get one call back from any of the jobs I applied to in 2017. Then in 2018 my dad suggested I look at Denver. I googled the list of the top 20 accounting firms in Denver, applied to 10, got calls back from every one. Within 2 months of applying I got offers at my top three firms I wanted to work for, sold everything I owned, packed up my Mini Cooper and moved.
I cannot tell you how many prayers I made asking for guidance and for a new start. Everything fell into place when it was supposed to and not in the timing I wanted it to.
Be patient ♥️ Good things are coming. The only thing you should focus on is what you can do today, in this very moment, to get one step closer to your goals. Don’t stress about the big picture.
**** The reason I wanted to leave accounting in Arkansas is because I wasn’t feeling fulfilled at my last firm. I felt pigeonholed, moving up was incredibly political, I didn’t like the projects I was working on and came to the conclusion that was how all firms were. I currently adore my Denver firm!
Something I need to stop doing in 2019: Calling myself dumb or not smart enough.
Being a tax accountant, I am surrounded by massively intelligent Individuals. It is my job to learn new regulations, create a promising and well thought out tax return and provide financial advice. I have somehow convinced myself over the last 4 tax seasons that I am not smart.
Let me tell you, it is absolutely debilitating to mentally diminish what you are capable of. You will become what you believe you are capable of. If you believe you are incapable then you will remain incapable. If you believe you are going to be a bottom tear employee then you remain a bottom tear employee. If you believe that your coworkers have more to offer then you do, then you will always be the pawn of the game and never the queen.
Build thoughts that push you to your potential and stop believing things about yourself that aren’t true. Tell yourself this year: I am capable. I am smart. I add value to my firm. I am open to learning. I am a go-getter.
The key to happiness is having incredibly low expectations, while simultaneously willing a positive attitude into existence.
I cannot imagine a life more extraordinary for myself than the one I’m writing this very moment.
I have become a little more of a risk taker, a lot more confident, I have so much self love and respect and have been working on saying what is on my heart the moment it is on my heart.
2019 is about living a life where I actively pursue things that are out of my comfort zone because living within the means of comfort is not even an option. The only option is internal growth and that comes when we leave the walls of familiarity ♥️
It’s going to be a glorious year because I am willing it to happen 🙏🏼 this is the year of INTENTIONAL LIVING. I would encourage you to dig deep and see what areas of your life are too comfortable for growth!
🎧 Workout Jams 🎶 For me, music can take a workout to the next level! It motivates me, gets me in the right head space and makes workouts fun🙌🏻
I want to know, what are your favourite workout songs?! 👇🏻
I posted some songs on my story yesterday and saved them to my highlights called “GYM JAMS” if you want to add to your playlist too! #gymmusic #workoutplaylist #beatsbydre
It is a cozy Friday, wearing a massive sweater, drinking coffee in my favorite city, Coeur d’Alene and looking out at the snow on the ground. I love the PNW, I’m not exactly ready to fly back to Denver tomorrow ☃️
Current Dilemma: coming up with a New Years Resolution.
Every single year I come up with a resolution that I stick to all year long. This year I want to come up with a career Resolution and a personal growth Resolution. All I know is that whatever I finally decided it to be, 2019 is going to be about positive energy, seeking what makes me happy, following my gut feeling and being the best possible budgeter haha!
2017 Resolution: Self Actualization
2018 Resolution: Pay Gratitude Forward
2019 Resolution: Pending.....
Merry Christmas Friends 🎄
I haven’t been home for Christmas in four years and I am absolutely full of joy that I get to spend Christmas 2018 with my family! It’s all about the little things! ♥️
I might be a single woman this holiday season but I definitely don’t feel alone! ♥️ so much to be thankful for this Christmas!
Baby it’s cold outside ❄️
Sunday lift is done 💪🏻 I love working out on the weekends because I can take my time, focus on form and get some heavy lifts in 🔥
I’m excited because we are celebrating my birthday tonight! Aka pizza + cake 🍰🍕 YASSSS (Although my bday is on Tuesday) #birthdaycelebration
•Lat Pulldown 4x8
•Low Cable Row 4x10
•Bicep Curl 3x8
Sunday Brunch + Christmas PJ’s
I cannot think of a better way to spend my weekend 🎅🏼♥️🥂
Glowing More Than I Ever Have✨
Nothing worth having ever came easy. 2017 was a year of self discovery and learning self-love after being in a terribly negative and draining relationship.
2018 has been the year of leaping Into opportunity with both feet, starting over in a new state and embracing Emma with all of her scars and bruises. It has been the year of being Confident, Empathic, Bold and Fearless!
I love who I am becoming and I am excited to meet the 2019 Emma 🌈♥️ Be the kind of woman you would be proud of. Be a woman who never stops Glowing. Be fearless in the Pursuit of Positive Energy💋
There is a lot to smile about these days ♥️
Off to Minnesota today, for a work conference.... but mostly to see my bestie @kaitlynn_hensch ♥️
Striving to the best version of myself 💕✨
While I’m not at my leanest, I definitely think I am at my fittest and in an amazing headspace 🙌🏻 And that is what’s most important! #health
I definitely think it’s important to have performance and health related goals, as well as physical goals. I find these goals so much more meaningful and motivating than aesthetic goals. Anyone else?! 🤷🏼♀️
To see your body be able to do something it couldn’t yesterday is such an amazing feeling! If you don’t already have any, I encourage you to set some goals that relate to your performance in the gym and your health and nutrition! 🌱

•HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAPA BEAR•
I am so thankful for my dad, it is unreal. He is my rock, my financial advisor, my “adulting” spirit guide, my shoulder to cry on, my go-to guy for a night out on the town and most of all my loving father ♥️
Thanks for making my life infinitely better and supporting my goals in life! Miss you a bunch and I will celebrate with you in 18 days! Xoxo ~ Your Baby Girl
Ps - swipe to see some fun videos 😂🙌🏼
I am one Proud Big Sister ♥️
My brother, Reid, dropped out of high school and has been a little lost ever since. He finally sat down and passed his GED + got a promotion to be a supervisor at UPS. #yougotthis
😭♥️🙌🏼 So beyond proud!
I found my Life Calling 🐃
I didn’t grow up with a single country song played in my home. In fact I hated everything country in college. It wasn’t until I moved to Arkansas that I fell in love with the music and lifestyle ♥️
I’m a terrible bull rider I’ll have you know. At least there is a LOT of room for improvement 😂🙌🏼
