Upper body day at the gym: ✅ 20 minutes cardio with Sophie: ✅ Preparing for my last week at work: ✅🙌 Hiya, my sweet friends! I hope yal have been doing fabulously! Had a relaxing weekend that included witnessing one of my dearest friends since 3rd grade say yes to her wedding dress yesterday, getting some major nesting/cleaning done and my workouts in. Taking a break from IG a few days is always nice 🤗 filter harder than me today because your girl was lookin' a little rough after that gym sesh 😂💪 and I officially have an outie, soooo weird!!!!! BUT! In regards to my last post: I truly appreciate all the sweet comments/words of encouragement! Yal are great! I don't normally let other's comments get to me and I let a lot roll of my shoulder. People are entitled to their opinions and it's up to me whether or not I let those said opinions affect me. Pregnancy is an individualized journey for every woman, and all I can say is for some of the comments I've received from others I hope they come back and tell me how their journey really was vs. what they thought it'd be beforehand. 😉 Anywho!! Last week at work this week! 37 wk check on Tuesday, hoping to be dilated some and get this sweet girl here pretty soon! 😍 Relaxing time now!
A good friend of mine sent this to me the other day and it is so fitting with what she and I had been going through. I've started over a lot in my life, in many ways. Sometimes we dig ourselves into these holes where we think we're back to square one when in reality we are so far from it. When you're going through something and you feel like you're waist deep in it, it's so hard to see beyond our current circumstances. We dwell on it. We overanalyze it. We get stuck thinking about how the future will lay out. Today in church, the pastor spoke of dwelling on the future and the burdens it bears on us. So if you find yourself in a place of new beginnings know that you're not starting over. You are stronger now than you were in the past. You have more life experience now than before. You can overcome whatever may currently be standing in your way. 💕
RISE AND GRINDDDDD 💪 It's the start of a new week yoohoo! I haven't made the best food choices this past week, but this week's a clean slate 🙌 if you're the same as me, let's make this week great again 😬😬 aiming to eat within my macros, train hard, and SLEEP MOREEEE!! I'm always saying I'm gonna sleep then spend an hour scrolling on instagram etc. 👻 does anyone else do this?! What are you aiming for this week? 😘 // Happy MonSLAYYYY fighting face ON!
Hour naps are literally my JAM 🙌 so even though I have gotten a lot done today and still more to get done, I'm taking care of myself in this way because my week will be even CRAZIER 😫 Don't ever feel guilty about taking care of you and your needs. so piece out world -- see ya in 60!
The girl on the left didn't know what self love was , the girl on the right does 💜. _________________________________________ Most of us don’t see ourselves as worthy of love. Or maybe we don’t make enough time to love ourselves! There are only so many hours in a day and the idea of taking the time to understand and meet our own needs isn't a high priority compared to the rest of life’s demands. _________________________________________ When we are little, loving ourselves is easy. We haven’t been damaged by the world and can clearly see our inner potentials- those days when we dreamt of being an astronaut or pop singer!....But then the world does a great job telling us everything we lack, holds us up next to perfection, and we realize we will never quite measure up.😞 _________________________________________ It’s important not to let the world dictate what we deserve. That’s why I try and m bring love to the world; not the other way around. And it's important to bring love to yourself too. _________________________________________ #selflove#love#positivity#bodyimage#bodypositive#strong#motivation#bodytransformation#weightlifting#girl
Sometimes I fit in protein bars, donuts, but on most days (especially when I'm cutting), I like to eat simple but nutritious food 🤤👌🏽🥒. #keepitsimple - Simple and delicious: rice, asparagus, chicken, olive oil. - Not all of your food has to look pretty and "perfect" (for Instagram). Sure, sometimes I eat things with the thought, "this will be so good for Instagram" But on MOST DAYS, I eat like an athletic peasant. Is this meal doused in sauces? Nah. Is this meal full of nutrients and great for performance? Yes. Eat for fuel and eat for your goals. #dontjusteatforInstagram
Starting a 30 day booty program tomorrow. Because I wanna be #honeymoon ready😉💕 • I took other "before" pictures but felt way more comfortable posting this one. Maybe I'll post my before/after when I complete a couple rounds! I'm ready to enjoy this new journey. I love my body as it is. I love what it's done for me. This isn't about changing it or trying to achieve a certain look. • Honestly, the program looks like fun + I am obsessed with working my lower half. Low impact too 🤗 so it's a win win. • Has anyone ever done this program?! What are you thoughts?
"Do your best & forget the rest." A quote that resignates from me ever since I was a little girl... Yesterday it felt like Summer. Today it's windy, and cold. Things get tough and life gets hard. You can be unhappy about it OR you can decide to create your own sunshine! ☀️ This does not mean move to Florida on a whim because you're unhappy with yourself. The sunny state may be a beautiful state but it will not cure your unhappiness from within ( Take my word for it - I already attempted it🙈😂) Make choices that are best for you & realize that not everyone is going to agree with you. The real loss is not facing your fear , taking a risk & working for what you want. I was writing in my journal this morning about all the things that are holding me back, I crossed them off, told myself they are silly & replaced them with TRUE statements. 😌 Be happy with what you have while working for what you want. I am deserving. I will always be enough. I believe in myself. It's time to take action & never look back. Whatever it may be... #GOFORIT
[2|26|2017] Do it for yourself. Do it to prove to yourself you can. Not because people are watching/cheering/rooting for you. Do it so that the voice in your head that says you CAN is louder than the voice that says you can't. Do it so that the next time you fall, tumble & lose it you get back up a little faster. Do it because you're stronger than you were. Do it. Future you will thank you. 17.1 is in the books. *Sorry about the dumbbell @damiannielson Thanks @hickman15 _______________________________ #crossfit#OpenGo#progenex#generatorstrong
Tried @creamistry for the first time with the fam and omg 🙌🏼 they make your ice cream fresh right in front of you with nitrogen. I got Reese's flavor ice cream with brownie and Oreo mixed in. The hubby and babe loved it too. Treat yourself and go try it! 🍦
Guilty as charged. See what I did there?! 😂😳 The rain has arrived again in SoCal. Good thing it is rest day! Gonna take advantage & watch some Netflix with the fam. Hope y'all are having a great Sunday!
Extremely honored to be able to have my article published on @underthebar ... I started my coaching career reading all of their articles and now it's surreal that I get the opportunity to give back value on their site!
When ya throw on a hat in hopes of semi-hiding your chipmunk cheeks 🐻👟🖤 - Sundays are my favourite day of the week. I get to sleep in with my man, go to brunch, gym at my own leisure, and relax ☺️✨ Today was #gfg arms & chest 2, and I did 30 minutes of cycling as well! I was planning on a little bit more, but my pain meds started acting up and giving me some extreme stomach pains so I decided to call it quits 😞 Listening to your body is ALWAYS the best idea however, so home it was! What are you girls up to today? I am going to be baking some cookies later for a bake sale fundraiser for a family friend! 🍪🍪 Happy Sunday everyone!
Before this trip I was stressed about missing school and work and worrying about my grades not being perfect and I'm so happy I decided to just say screw it because you never know when or how often you'll have opportunities like this. Always choose experiences, adventures, and making memories. Don't let work, school, or even fitness get in the way of you living a full life. And if it comes down to money, choose experiences not things. Yesterday is going down in the books as one of my favorite days ever. Currently listening to "How Far I'll Go" by Alessia Cara. Go listen to it if you haven't heard of it. ✌🏽🌺🌴
Finally getting a second to sit down after #fitwithBAE just happened! Drinking one of these bad boys, although much smaller than this 32 ounce one. This guy was inhaled yesterday after my 9 miles 😂. Still feeling all fuzzy after that workout. Yes, we all were there to sweat, but I met some new friendly faces which is why I started this account. To meet others who have found a passion for fitness and down to making new friends, too. Oh and walked away with brand new @sweatybetty leggings 💁🏼. Can't wait for the next #fitwithBAE !
Swinging into the work week like 🙈 The coolest thing about parkour is the mental battle. It's not one that I get from powerlifting. Every time I step into the gym, I have to face a move that scares me, yet find a way to overcome it. ❤️Lacheing freaks me out every time because I'm still learning how to control it, much less how to land precisely. I'm glad I figured out how to land on a box, even if it isn't that far away (yet). Next step: land on a wall! 😈
