So my ten year old son wrote something. The grammer is not perfect, but the sentiment is. This was not a school assignment, he wrote this on his own because he was moved to. We relocated here a little over 3 years ago and it felt like home immediately - we knew this was "our place." As a family we speak often about how greatful we are to be able to call Petoskey home. My son writing something so perfect about this place just lets me know we made the right choice for our kids too. Petoskey is magical, just ask a ten year old. #riderrockwell #pet#petoskeye #bartelboys #bartelcartel #petoskeylife #petoskey #michigan #love #growingupnorth #upnorthmichigan #poetry #poe#poem> #poem #writer #son #youngartist @petoskeyarea @downtownpetoskey @beardsbrewery @petoskeynews @alexchildressphoto @puremichigan @michiganawesome @mi_playground

Snow Rider. My son, Rider Rockwell Bartel, growing up - Up North. I wouldn't have it any other way, and from his smile I would say neither would he. It was a good day in the woods with family this past weekend - memories were made. Three cheers for Michigan. #riderrockwell #bartelboys #mic#michiganer #sledding #memories #upnorth #michigan #upnorthmichigan #winter #snow #snowlovers #familyfun #familyday #pet#petoskeylife #petoskeymi #petoskey #littletraversebay #woods #forrest #getoutsideandplay #winterfun @puremichigan @awesomemitten @petoskeyarea @alexchildressphoto @ericjhewitt @thegreatlakesstate

The truth is, most of us live on this little island in our minds & the majority are living with a disease called "excusitis." πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ . How can this hurt you? It's fatal to your success, no matter what kinds of goals you have for yourself. Common side effects are overthinking & excuse making & sorry to say they get you no where but back to square one, WISHING you could make a change instead of ACTUALLY doing it. . I am the first one to admit, I hung out on that island wayyyyyy to long, but I made my mind up & DECIDED I was worth it. My health is worth it. My FAMILY & WHY are worth it, so I'm happy to say I am back on track & that ship has sailed. ✌🏻 . While I am excited & energized, I'm not writing this to toot my own horn, I am here to ask, like I was feeling- why are YOU so stuck in old ways? Negative thinking? Crappy self-talk? When will you tell yourself its TIME. Time to get off the island & jump on the freaking ship...it's sailing ahead to SUCCESS girl & I WANT to help you. Whether you want to change your health, learn to goal set, build an income working part-time from home like me or you just need a friend, I'm your girl.πŸ‘― .

I certainly don't share my fitness through social media just because I am a coach or want any sort of special attention. I share my fitness journey because I KNOW it's helped women get off the couch & onto their living room floor sweating, instead. . I do it for a sense of personal accountability & pray that it inspires someone else to begin. (Whether they voice it or not.)πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ . I made a commitment to my health four years ago & still strive to become the healthiest version of myself as I try to have another baby & because I want my daughter to admire my dedication to my health. . I want Quinn to see that health is a privilege, not a given right. So you have to work hard for the things that matter. Overjoyed would be an understatement that this little lady joined me today. ❀ . Besides, better a sweaty motivational post than a nasty political rant.
