To all my family and friends back home it felt like you were all with me. The lovely messages and support are what drives me to bring my best! Love you all! 😘😘
The real mvp goes to my partner @fight.exphys who flew back from the US to support me in the Philippines. Even though it has been a little crazy, you had my back this whole trip. I could hear you calling my number so loud in the crowd and see your smiling face which kept me focused. 🤣 ⠀
As with winning anything in life it took a lot of hard work, discipline and patience. But anything can be achieved if you let go of your fears and follow your passion. 💪🏼⠀
I value this woman so much. She decided she was going to change her life and she is changing. Everything about her has changed, from her clothes and how she wears her hair, to her weight, strength and posture. It’s not an overnight change and there have been many setbacks too but if you add up the incremental changes they are inspiring. All because she said ‘enough is enough’. Well done Sabrina you warrior.

🍌🍎 Here's are a few healthy airplane tips for the jet setter in your life.
It really is so easy to get caught up in someone else's fabulous life, especially on Insta. it's almost like an escape from our own reality. We start wishing we were someone else or become so envious of what someone else has That we forget that we're just as fabulous too!
For someone that deals with bi polar and depression daily, it's prudent that we stop the cycle before our thoughts turn on us!
Sometimes it's best to PUT THE PHONE DOWN and Just work on you and nevermind what everyone else is doing.
AGING BACKWARDS! This is the same person! There’s NOTHING ELSE out there that’ll ever compare or ever be BETTER!!!! “WOW. We're over here aging backwards on THRIVE. 📌
I am Susie and this is my one-year Thrive Experience.
Here’s the long and the short of it. When I began my Thrive
Experience, I was approaching 50 and I was napping my life away. I was a snappy, crabby, monster mama; homeschooling my two teens & feeling totally depleted of energy and vitality.
I knew I needed a change and I tried everything to no avail and finally prayed to God about it, “Please Lord, help me with my energy and mood.” Well God did that and more!
Within days my friend, a Thrive promoter, came to my house and sold me a sample. Well... I was a Day One Thriver:
It was so easy to take.
My first week and beyond went like this:
Doing everyone else's chores-
Smiling and laughing with my family-
No more coffee-
No more naps-
Happy happy happy-
Swimming miles, climbing rocks, lifting weights, doing yoga, riding horses, jumping horses, you name it-I’m doing it and still cannot get enough - A YEAR LATER!
20 pounds lighter- building lean muscle - my general discomforts calmed- mood SOOO good- feeling like WONDER WOMAN- Nothing can stop me. PEOPLE SAY I LOOK 10 years YOUNGER.
I’ve got one last thing to say, (before I go for a run) do yourself (and family) a favor- EXPERIENCE THRIVE!” #goals#lifestyle#nutrition#thrive#simplicity#3steps#motivation#agebackwards#premiumnutrition#plantbased#eatclean#changinglives#mindset#consistency#happy#younger
Im always caught in a dilemma of wanting to be big and strong versus wanting to be lean and athletic 😩😩😩 Finding and maintaining that middle ground is a challenge. Either way, old videos of myself always keep me motivated to keep grinding. Partly why I do it 🤷🏿♂️ #MondayMotivation#FlashBACK#Literally
👉🏼YOU MATTER Monday with @lordandesme ! Do YOU know YOU MATTER to GOD?! Do YOU feel small in this big world?! Do YOU wonder if God hears and sees YOUR tears & pains?! Do YOU feel as YOU are depressed more than joyous?! YOU are a conquerer! YOU have ALL YOU need to get where, what and where YOUR heart desires! God loves YOU as you are, where YOU are! I pray this blesses you! Keep YOUR faith this will pass everything always passes! Endure it and YOUR promise is in the making! Hebrews 10:32 Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you endured in a great conflict full of suffering. 33 Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated. 34 You suffered along with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions. 35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.
36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. 37 For,
“In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.”
“But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.”
39 But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved. Don’t give up God is at work in YOUR current & future!

4 weeks ago ----> Today
Squat: 315 x 6 ----> 385 x 6 (70lb increase)
Bench: 255 x 6 ----> 275 x 6 (20lb increase)
The last time I stuck with any kind of program longer than a month was over 4 years ago and it was a month exactly. Prior to that was 10 years ago in college.
I'm extremely proud of myself for the consistency I've shown to myself and the progress I'm making! I love the strength and confidence I'm gaining!
If you've been struggling to stick with anything or even start, my advice would be to START! You will NEVER know what is possible or what you're made of until you begin.
Shoutout to me for leveling up my standards and dropping the excuses!
