So thankful to have a husband that totally gets me and supports me. Letting me sneak in a quick run instead of helping to pack for up north โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ although I did sprint home after work to cut the lawn and do the dishes before I even asked ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ#run #runner #runnergirl #runnomatterwhat #cardio #garmin #garminvivoactivehr #athleteforlife #passionneverfails #bestself #motivation #movemore
Picked up a few essentials after my workout tonight! I feel like a kid in a candy store when I get to go to the supplement shop and restock ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ Got my fav preworkout, prolific by @pescience .. easily the cleanest, most effective preworkout I've ever used. I don't usually venture out and try new preworkouts in particular because I don't like those jittery spaz effects a lot of them can cause. BUT when it comes to my BCAAS I'm always up for something new! The employee at the store said this was a personal fav of his, so going to take his word and give it a go. I sip on my BCAAS most importantly, throughout my training, but also throughout the day to add some flavor to my water and also help ensure I'm retaining as much muscle mass as possible while I'm cutting. Grabbed a leeeetle variety of some @powercrunch bars as well. Of course I'm excited to finally try the red velvet, but I'm THROUGH THE ROOF to try that chocolate bar!!! Contains two servings per bar, but only 16g of carbs for both servings ๐Ÿ˜Ž Powercrunch bars are the ONLY protein bar I enjoy. Nothing like some new goodies to motivate my butt to finish the week out strong ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ . . . . #pescience #preworkout #bcaas #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #fitgirls #fitgirl #fitmom #fitspo #fitfam #supps #motivation #grind #workout #train #hardwork #shred #lifestyle #healthyliving #health #motivate #bodybuilding #trainlikeamom #muscle #decisions #youvsyou #passionneverfails

Just out here working on my motivation and mah glutes ๐Ÿ‘ I've had something going on at least one day out of every work week so I've missed a lot of training. I feel like I'm at a stand still. My motivation is lacking and I've been making too many excuses to miss my workouts. IT HAPPENS. Sometimes we lose our groove or that fire in us that keeps us going, it happens. It is normal. But you can best believe I'm taking baby steps to get back to that mental drive, that grind, that passion that I know I have. I struggled today. I couldn't pull weight that normally comes easy for me. I couldn't reach my typical amount of reps. I felt fatigued faster. BUT, I am making moves is what's important. One day at a time. I will forever be my own work in progress. . . . #perspective #lifestyle #grind #passionneverfails #work #workhard #fitness #fitmom #fitgirls #fitspo #fitfam #girlswholift #shred #workout #train #motivation #youvsyou #choices #decisions #train #trainlikeamom #bodybuilding #booty #humpday #glutes

I went from feeling like an insecure and weak minded girl to a strong woman who BELIEVED she could so she DID ๐Ÿ”ฅand all I did was believe in myself more and acted like it was possible for me to do the things I wanted to do.

Part of me wanted to just lay on the floor with my pup during today's training but I pushed through and got some lifting done ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ Kept it quick and stuck to the compound movements: โ€ขClose-grip Bench 5x5 135# โ€ขRDL 3x10 145# โ€ข"Fran" to finish but not timed  15-12-9 thrusters and pull-ups  Day 5 of my current program usually includes deadlifts but with lack of sleep, and after dancing all night in heels my bod wasn't having it so I subbed RDL's instead for today. There's a fine line between pushing through and backing off and I think that just comes with experience and really tuning into YOUR body. What works for someone else may not work best for you. #passionneverfails #englishbulldog #garagegym #benchday #findyourhappy

Early morning training session that 99.9% pissed off the neighbors ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Currently taking โœŒ๐Ÿผrest days per week and I think I found my sweet spot. 6 days was a little much and my body recovers a lot better with 5 solid training days. I use one of my rest days to do a small hike with my dad the the other is a complete full-on rest day with yoga (@romwod ) and just total relaxation.  I used to believe I had to work my body into the ground to see results. You know, the #nodaysoff mentality. That not only was exhausting physically but mentally as well. I like having more time to do OTHER things outside of the gym ๐Ÿ’•  Headband: @junkbrands  Bra+Shorts: @lululemon  #passionneverfails #findyourhappy #junkbrands #lululemon #girlswholift #strongandhappy

It's no secret my platform has shifted gears a little the past few months. I used to post lifting video after lifting video, showcasing all of my workouts, constant physique updates, weigh-ins, transformations and everything powerlifting. While some of that is still a focus, it's not my main priority anymore and it's not what I want this account to be solely about.  Fitness and nutrition is a big part of my life. That hasn't changed. What HAS changed is my attitude towards it and towards life in general. I feel this past year has been my biggest year of growth yet due to some really bad things happening and some really great once-in-a-lifetime things happening. Both have pushed me to grow physically, emotionally and spiritually and for that I'm grateful.  I particularly enjoy following people to see all aspects of their life- not just your average fitspos and my hope is to bring that well-roundedness to my page as well. Here's to continuing my year of growth with you all โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Photo by my girl @rprophoto // #passionneverfails #findyourhappy

Yesterday was probably the most productive day I've had in a while. I finished two projects that I've been putting off for months and literally worked all day to make sure they were something I was proud of.  Now that they're complete, I am in fact SO proud of them and I think for a long time the only thing holding me back was myself. This industry is full of unqualified individuals because it's so easy to label yourself as a "trainer" or "nutritionist" without holding any certifications. For a while I felt like I wasn't qualified enough to put out an ebook, or offer more than what I was doing because I didn't have a PhD and then I realized how much MORE I do have than the average "fitspo" so I was doing a disservice by NOT offering my knowledge and information. I hold a B.S. in Exercise Science, I'm certified through the American College of Sports Medicine as not only a CPT but an Exercise Physiologist and I'm constantly reviewing the latest research and scholarly articles so it was time for me to get out of my own head and do the damn thing ๐Ÿ˜Œ  Let me tell you how freeing it is to get out of your own way and start chasing those dreams. Sometimes we just need a little reminder of who we are and why we do what we do ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŽ‰ #passionneverfails #findyourhappy #snatchhighpullfaces

There are times in our lives and experiences we have that will literally change us completely and have a profound impact on our future. My journey with Alexia is one of those experiences. She has taught me to believe and trust in myself more then ever and never give up no matter how hard the circumstances or how far off the dream seems. There was a time where I never thought I would be able to ride her and the thought would literally scare me. There were countless days I would have to push past my fears and be completely out of my comfort zone so that we could get better. Nothing about her transformation was easy. I could have given up and maybe found another horse that was more trained and a lot more calm but that is not what I wanted. Giving up and taking the easy route will never give you the satisfaction I feel from all the hard work paying off and that goes for horses or any area of your life. Alexia has become my dream horse. Without @rafterphorsetraining we would have never gotten this far and I am forever grateful for all their guidance and continued support on this journey.

Some people refer to working out as a chore, a punishment for eating poorly or a negative experience. If you're doing one of those things, you need to find a new method or new way of working out that does not feel that way or fill you with such negativity.  It shouldn't be "easy" per se, but it should excite you and be a positive addition to your lifestyle even on days when it's hard or discouraging. If you are healthy and able to exercise, that is a blessing in itself.  I choose to train because it makes me happy, it releases any kind of stress from my day, it makes me a better human and there's no feeling quite like being strong.

If you're doing one of those things, you need to find a new method or new way of working out that does not feel that way or fill you with such negativity. It shouldn't be "easy" per se, but it should excite you and be a positive addition to your lifestyle even on days when it's hard or discouraging. If you are healthy and able to exercise, that is a blessing in itself. I choose to train because it makes me happy, it releases any kind of stress from my day, it makes me a better human and there's no feeling quite like being strong. Let your training, or exercise compliment your life. It should never take away from it ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ #passionneverfails  #todaysthought  #girlswholift  #findyourhappy

You are what you believe yourself to be. In the age of social media, words can be just as hurtful as actions. I've seen a lot of people negatively talking about others in the fitness industry more so lately than ever before and honestly it's not only not a good look, but it makes me sad for them. You can disagree with others sure, but straight up bringing others down by bashing how they look, what they say or how they act will always say more about you than them.  Use your presence and energy for GOOD, to heal and bring up others. Chiming in on the latest drama is only bringing negativity into your life. Expanding on yesterday's post- take things in your own, BETTER direction. You don't always have to follow the crowd ๐Ÿ’• #passionneverfails

Have you ever really paid attention to people's intentions? I've been reading into people more, mostly those who I come across throughout my day since it can be hard to see true intentions over the internet. For some people, I can just tell that they are struggling in some aspect of their life, because it tends to come out through their words and actions. They gossip more, they complain more and they have this essence about them that does not come off positive. SOMETHING is causing this and usually it has nothing to do with what they're complaining/gossiping about.  I try to respond to these individuals by helping them see the light. Whether it's opening their eyes to a new way of thinking or simply stating that I don't like to partake in gossiping about others and shifting the conversation to something positive.  Today I was more attentive to this than usual and it made me feel good knowing that I could indirectly help those who may not always be "peachy" to be around. There's usually a deeper issue, and sometimes all they need is a friend, or a moment that helps brighten their day. #beabetterhuman #passionneverfails #findyourhappy #eatliftliveoutdoors #NEATure #mindfulness p

Something I think we all struggle with is giving ourselves credit. We are constantly comparing ourselves to someone who appears to have more. Whether it's more muscles, the ability to lift more weight, the amount of money one has, etc; Comparison is the thief of joy. Lately I've been making huge mental gains. I spent so long worrying about only the physical portion, and I'm just beginning to realize that the physical gains come when you STOP focusing on them so much and focus more on inner strength. You want to make progress? Stop focusing on it so much.

If you're new to following me, you probably don't even know that I competed in bikini๐Ÿ‘™That's really what started my passion for lifting, however looking back now, the way I went about it wasn't by any means healthy. I did a 16 week prep after just being a runner (and still continued to run 30-40 miles per week throughout prep ๐Ÿ™ƒ (I ate between 1000-1200 calories of the same foods every day while doing that btw). Back then, I didn't fully understand what it meant to build muscle. I thought dieting down could just give me that shredded appearance and a bigger butt. I didn't get it.  It's ok though, because now I do and that experience made me into who I am today. Today I weigh roughly 15lbs more than I did in 2014 when I competed. I'm eating roughly DOUBLE the calories and I'm a heck of a lot happier. Understand that if you want to appear "shredded", muscular or god-forbid I use the word "toned", you first need to HAVE that muscle. It won't just appear if you try to lose weight.  Prioritize your goals, come up with a plan, follow and adhere to a program, and keep your nutrition also supportive of your goals.

A pretty typical Sunday Costco trip ๐Ÿ›’  We love stocking up on fruits, veggies and lean meats at Costco simply because it's a lot more cost effective.

I'll usually get bagels, snacks, and smaller things at Stop + Shop or Walmart.

The perishables you see here will last us the week, but when we get things like egg whites, chicken, turkey, etc they last a good two weeks. I'll usually get bagels, snacks, and smaller things at Stop + Shop or Walmart. Having a full fridge every week is a blessing and is something that makes me really happy and grateful โค๏ธ #passionneverfails  #findyourhappy  #whatsinmycart  #healthy 
Pursuing what I am passionate about has not been the easiest journey. I've had moments of doubt, not feeling good enough, having others doubt me, and so many other things that made me want to throw in the towel, but every time I feel like I do, I constantly remind myself that this is just the beginning. Rome wasn't built in a day and most importantly passion NEVER fails. So, if you are a person like me who is pursuing your passion and you are thinking that there is absolutely no way you will succeed or no way you can make a living off of doing something you love and are passionate about, my advice to you is to STOP. Get rid of all of your negative thoughts and keep pushing. All of your hard work WILL pay off. Have faith and know that passion never fails. You can do it. You are good enough. You are awesome. You are all of that and so much more. Your only limit is you. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’• #priscillaclemmonsphotography #quoteoftheday #qotd #chaseyourpassion #passionneverfails #faithoverfear #hardworkpaysoff #love #passion #photographer #photography #instagood #instadaily #inspirationalquotes

"A real sign of progress is when we no longer punish ourselves for our imperfections." This couldn't be any more true. For years, I've criticized myself for "normal" flaws. My body is changing, but so is my mind. I never thought I'd learn to be okay with the scale increasing. I never thought I'd be comfortable with building curves. But I'm building so much more than just curves; I'm building mental and physical strength. 7 weeks till I prove myself. โœŠ๐Ÿผ #powerlifting #ironwomanstrength #sbd #sqwatz #inzer #gwpl #prep #7weeksout #gainingweightiscool #passionneverfails #pineapplebunz #andregularbunz

Happy Friday โ˜€๏ธ Excited to pick up my (unexpected!) new car today and finally head to our local farmer's market to stock up on some fresh fruits and veggies. Long gone are the wild weekends full of parties, outings and bar hopping and I've never been more relieved.  More quality time with my hubs and puppy, more reading, more mornings waking up before anyone else, and more breakfast dates. That's what I look forward to and that's what makes me happiestโ˜บ๏ธ Always do more of that โค๏ธ #passionneverfails #findyourhappy

I shared this on Facebook and wanted to share it here too because it gave me chills that lasted all day today.  This morning a dove (swipe over to see) somehow came into my Grandmama's house and landed itself right onto a picture frame of Papa. We all know how much he loved watching the birds in the feeder outside the kitchen window and doves symbolize peace and the Holy Spirit โค๏ธ๐Ÿ•Š I think Papa wanted to first say hi to us and then laugh at my Dad who has a fear of birds and had to rescue it ๐Ÿ˜‚  I was raised Catholic but never took going to church or CCD seriously and after being confirmed I completely abandoned my faith. I just didn't care at ALL. Recently, after we lost my Papa, I felt a strong urge to restore my relationship with God and my faith as a whole. I've been reading a daily devotional, listening to podcasts and praying a LOT more. I feel happier, more in tune with who I am as a person and I feel that I have such a focus on being a better human all aroundโค๏ธ๐Ÿ•Š #passionneverfails #havefaith #onedayatatime #wwpd
