Got my girls on my mind.
I pursued this business to be a better woman, a better wife, and a better mom!
These girls are EXPENSIVE 😆😳😩!! All these newfound likes and desires to do new things are on a constant roll for them 😂.
Grateful for my booming online fitness business because it’s definitely helping to keep us healthy and financially able to raise these kiddos!
We grind. We push. We overcome. We scale the mountain. Then what? We hit the summit only to realize it's false.
False summits are some of the most important places on earth.
Because they’re where most turn back and the champions push forward. False summits create character.
They put life in perspective.
Those false summits will expose more mountains, rivers, lakes, oceans, fires - you name it.
Embrace the false summit because it's these situations that give us the opportunities to be great - where others will turn back. We need them to get where we know we need to be.
Yall ever have like that one song that you can't listen to? That one song that you only listen to when you WANT to cry? Yes, I'm about to get all emotional on you guys
Usually I skip this song, usually I've only chosen to listen to it in my darkest moments and I mean borderline suicidal, usually just the intro is enough to alter my mood. I had my music blasting at home the other day during my workout and it came on. I went to skip it, but I used it as fuel. When I was drenched in sweat and out of breath. And oh yes. I cried those last couple rounds. But I CONQUERED that work out. I released the bullshit going on in my head
Exercise is LIBERATING. It has absolutely changed my life. It brings out my determination and a fire, that I use towards everything in my life now. Even though that song brings up those memories, it doesn't scare me anymore ✌
“Sometimes what you’re most afraid of doing is the very thing that will set you free”~ For 2018 I set a goal that I would 1- do one race a month. And 2 - race competitively in Age Group for @spartan races. For the first race in April I was terrified. I was scared to be alone, scared to get hurt, scared that I was not good enough. Fast forward to today I couldn’t be more proud that I challenged myself to do something that made me uncomfortable. I learned so much about myself this year. I learned that I am capable. I learned that it’s ok to get hurt, it’s how you pick yourself back up that matters. I learned that it’s ok to be different, to be alone, and to be me. @spartan has been a huge part of changing my life. I’ve been pushed to the limit. I have succeeded and failed equally. I have focused myself on the goal to improve and keep going. I may be an adult but you never stop growing. Challenge yourself. Push for the best for you deserve it. Combining this with #30daysofgrateful today is for you @spartan. Thank you for changing my life.
No fancy selfie from my run today... I finshed my work at 3.30pm and headed straight to the park... my goal was 10km.
I was running against dusk and cold... but I had a much bigger battle to fight!
I didn't feel like it!!!
YES I WAS JUST ABOUT TO HIT A LITTLE SESSION OF MENTAL WRESTLING WITH MYSELF!
And so I did... just after I hit 5km I had to convince myself to keep on going... 30 min of persuasion and tricks not to stop!
When I reached 8km I was passing my car and had to choose... should I stay or should I go...
Just GO, wrap it up and be happy after!
My legs were fine, my breathing was stable and it was just my mind playing with me. Just a little fight... the thing is... no matter what you decide you will win... but we all know that the healthy choices are those which are truly winning... those which make us happy and proud!
So I decided to master the self persuasion for another 2km... I did it for 3km I can do it for another 2km... 12 more minutes... 3 more songs... 2 more rounds... keep on going... DONE! Once its done the day is always better than it was before...
Now I deserve a little healthy treat full of nutrition!
Enjoy your evening!!! Keep on going, if you are where you are already it means that you can make just few more steps!
How do you push yourself? What helps you keep on going when the easiest way is to stop... Any fanky tricks?
Sunday morning, staying lazy in bed or hitting the gym hard, the decision is yours. But remember this: Every decision you make stems from what you think you are, and represents the value that you put upon yourself! 👊💪🤗 #value#pushharder#workout#gym#motivation
Shout out to the girls who put in major work. Who are up early as hell for school or work. Girls who study & grind into the late night hours. Who know sacrifice & discipline. Who preserve and prioritize self worth & self love. Who rise above and hold it down even when they’re falling apart. To the girls who push harder. ...I am you ☺️! Good Morning, Say it back 💜👑😘. 📸: @industry_auck#strongAF#pushharder#iamsummerterry#weallwegot#nyc#auckvision
