We have been super productive over here as well as enjoying lots of play time with Madison and workout time. We love being our own bosses and setting our own schedule and getting to guide and empower other ladies to do the same–to follow their passions and make their impact on the world! Check out our fellow purely fit sister Stacie making recipe youtube videos!! We are so proud of her.

You will be hearing more from Stacie soon as we are going to start shouting out to our Purely Fit Sisters here and in our newsletter. We believe in supporting one another and not competing. This is one of our favorite trends we see going around on Instagram – women supporting and helping others! It is a beautiful thing when we all work together.

Michelle has really been intermittent-fasting for the past 2 weeks and she plans on doing it again. But now she is trying out carb cycling as she re-films our free 7 day plank challenge workouts and is documenting her journey inside the Purely Fit Life club. This has been something we’ve been wanting to do for a long time. We are so proud of ourselves for getting things done on our to-do list.

Now let’s get to cooking!
