It’s my party and I’ll pose if I want to

 

You’ll never guess what day it is over here.
Ok, you may have guessed it. It’s my birthday! A friend of mine told me that once a lady hits the big 30 she not only stops aging, but magically becomes 28 all over again. So here’s to being 28 – again!

I’ve been meaning to say something about this, so hey, why not today.
You may have noticed a strange influx of workout images and deep thoughts over on the good old instagram feed. And if you were really paying attention you may have even noticed a new Kelly Westover Fitness page pop up on Facebook. Well, that’s all because I did something pretty awesome last month. I decided to keep pushing, sharing and growing in my fun and exciting fitness journey. And I also decided to help those who might need a little accountability and motivation, like I did, along the way. In short, I signed up as a Beachboy coach, and I could not be more excited about it! The inspiring ladies and gentleman that surround me, lift me up and hold me accountable every day is nothing short of amazing. We laugh, we love, we sweat and we share it with each other so we can all keep pushing for our goals and dreaming big. Doesn’t that just sound amazing?!? It really is. I wish you could feel the joy I have in my life right now. <3

To celebrate both my new role as a coach, and my 28th birthday I went out and did a little fitness photoshoot. Because y’all know how much I love photos, I couldn’t think of a better way to meld my new found fitness passion with my good old photo passion than to simply slam the two together. Here’s a little sneak peek, and a nod to all the hard work myself and my awesome fit fam have been putting in.

This adorable little man turned 6 months and I was delighted when his Mum reached out to me to do his photoshoot. He has such a sweet, gentle soul and you can tell already the Lord has big things in store for him. What a lucky guy he is to be growing up in the awesome family he is. Full of love, caring and great examples.

Life around here lately

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I think I’m done apologizing for being MIA, and I don’t mean that in a ‘I don’t care’ kind of way. Quite the opposite. I mean it in a ‘I’m living my life and loving it, and sometimes that’s really busy’ kind way. So to me, that means I’ll be in and out and that’s just fine by me.

Life is so interesting sometimes, don’t you think? One minute you’re plugging along and things are going smoothly, and the next minute BAM! A giant curve ball gets thrown your way. I felt that way about a month ago when our new and super awesome nanny gave notice after only 1 month. It was turning out to be too much for her to take on the duties of her own family and mine, so she needed to take back her time. And I totally respect that, but ouch did that one sting a good bit. We only had 4 days to find a replacement, so I sent a little plea up to heaven and hopped onto my giant support system – aka Facebook and you guys. And at that same time I was struck with a very strong impression that I shouldn’t need to do this. I shouldn’t need to find someone else to rely on to watch and care for my children, because I should be doing that. And ouch, did that one sting too. [Read more…]
