I may not be smiling later...it was leg day! And let me tell you, your legs will burn if you try piyo strong legs. No weights, just those crazy strength slides! Inner thighs, outer thighs, glutes, hamstrings...every thing gets worked! Ouch! But it burns so good!
When March gets here and I'm on the beach in my bikini 👙, I'm gonna be glad I made 30 minutes happen for me! 🌞
Happy Monday 👊🏼
Stop looking for what is missing
Start looking for what you may not be seeing
Focus on the positive(s) in a situation instead of the negative(s)
Remember -> what you focus on becomes your reality
"Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could." ___________________________________
Happy Monday Kings & Queens!! ➡️ [Tap the link in my bio for my 21 Day Blast That Fat Challenge] This past weekend me & hubby went to the fair. It was an experience but it's not how it used to be but we had fun going on the Ferris wheel and being on it together for the first time. We have realize on the weekend more in depth that if you want something you have to keep pushing hard to fight for what you want in life.💯 Love you hubby ❤️❤️ forever and a day.
If you've been watching my stories lately, then you probably know ALL about my 7 Day Break Free Bootcamp and how TODAY 23 women kicked off their 7 day challenge of clean eating and workouts..WELL in honor of today being DAY NUMBER ONE ☝🏼 I dedicated the focus of today to MOTIVATION! And asked the ladies to post THER motivation for the week.
One lady in the group posted an older picture of herself and said "ME! I am my motivation!" And it was a pic of her at a time where she felt HEALTHY. And as a coach naturally I gave her a standing ovation 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼because she hit the nail on the head..and here comes my MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY WORDS FOR YOU!
We've got to STOP comparing ourselves to pictures of women who have totally OPPOSITE body types. WE'RE NEVER GOING TO BE THEM! You've got to love and be inspired by YOUR body. And the BEST motivation is YOU! So here's mine. This is a pic of ME at MY healthiest. I couldn't maintain this because I was still very broken in my relationship with food..plus my issues with Celiac Disease & leaky gut set me back..but in order to achieve this, I WAS eating right, I WAS eating well, I was eating the right foods in the right portions and I FELT AMAZING! And it's MY GOAL to get this healthy body back..WITH the right heart & mentality behind it ❤️
Yesterday after work I hit the gym for the first time in three weeks, and did arms for the first time in FOUR weeks 😓 I was literally shaking about 15 minutes in to lifting 😭😂 I ran a mile, did chest, biceps, and triceps (sooo much tricep work, omg 💪), then finished off with 20 minutes on the stairclimber - it feels so good to be lifting again 💕✨
Last night I also finished my first week of #Insanity ! Today is my rest day and holy shit do I need it 🙃 I’m going to do some yoga and hula hooping for an active recovery day ❤️❤️
🔊Volume Up!!🔊 .
HOW NOT TO DO PISTOL SQUATS 😂😂 I decided to try to do one and on the first try I actually got it!!! And then I texted my sister that I would send her a video because I was so hyyyype about it, and this is what happened 😅 I crack myself up fam, that's for freakin' sure. I'll keep working I guess lolol.
“It’s too cold”

Everything you go through, grows you.
Getting stronger and stronger each day but I’d be lying if I said it’s been easy. Not so much the physical part but the mental part. Some days have been good while others I’ve been miserable. So much so I didn’t want to get out of bed nor did I. Who would’ve thought, right? He’s smiling in this photo. Well, there’s always more than meets the eye. Sorry to burst your bubble or be uncool for a sec.
Truth is, I’m down 10lbs as a result of having been on a liquid diet and only recently just started eating solid foods again. My energy has been low and so when I did go for walks etc by the end of the day I was exhausted. Being so physically active that’s something that I wasn’t used to and took a while to fully accept. I always knew recovery post-op was gonna be tough but I guess I thought, Not for me it won’t. Perhaps that was naive of me - cocky even -but lesson in humility learned lol. Patience, too.
Ironically the past few days of rest have done me a world of good. My neck is getting stronger, am regaining normal neck movement, and I’ve been relying on my neck brace less and less. The endless phone calls with my folks who always somehow know what to say has helped, and the fact that I had In N Out the other day, too. Not too mention the seemingly inconsequential nights staying up watching a scary movie with a friend, or being surrounded by my peers earning their BJJ stripes, or even having another friend ask me for help with a self tape, have all been like much need adrenaline shots to the heart and have helped drown out the cacophony of self-doubt and negativity that have consumed my mind as of late. For that I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. 🙏🏽
I’m not where I want to be but I’m also not where I was just a few days ago. 🤗 To be strong is to not show weakness but to face your weakness and stare that fucker down. So, if you’re still reading this, don’t be so hard on yourself come nightfall. Everything you go through, grows you.
