Gotta CC those emails: required> no one reads em> no one responds... expect greatness outta 30min meetings>that I have to pretend like what they say means something 🙄🤔 #Corporatelife#reality#itsbologna
Are you still up? Well hello to you. You not alone.
What about showing the down and dirty too? If it wasn't for some good productive late nights like this one, I don't think I'd be where I am today. Taking care of my clients. #corporateneur
That passion we got is so strong you just forget about time for a minute right?
This is what we do! Keep on boo.
It feels good to show the crazy too and not just the pretty.
When you need to dress up for work, but are a little tired of that corporate collared shirt look, say hello to the Florence Top + Ava Pants + Noort Boots. 😍 (Plus this outfit will take you right from work to a candlelit dinner with no need to do any awkward outfit changes in the office toilets! Hurrah!) #corporatelife#corporateoutfit#italiansilk#silktop#officewear
Today was the start of my new 8 week journey. 39 minutes of chest, triceps, abs and HIIT (high intensity interval training). Let me just say that at 3a my body was not quite ready for heavy weights. By the 2nd set I was awake and ready to hit it hard. The whole point (for me anyway) is to push to failure. It’s the only way I’m going to see some muscle gains.
Every set consists of 10 reps. My goal is to be struggling by rep 8. I know if I can do 11 reps I need to increase the weight. The tricep pushups were killers and I was forced to drop to my knees.
HIIT consisted of a 60 second round followed by a 45 second round and ending with a 30 second round. You would think the 30 second round would be the easiest. It wasn’t! I wound have rather done 3 of the 60 second rounds. The cardio was tough. The sweat was pouring off! I loved it.
Are you on a fitness journey? If so, I’d love to hear what you’re doing.

“I don’t want to feel this way anymore”
I thought that way for a good 6 months while going to the gym 4-5 days a week.
I would go home and shove my face with carbs because I needed to “carb up” like I was still coming home from cheer when I was 16.
You don’t know what you don’t know.
I thought I was “putting in the work” and was getting so annoyed that I was still gaining weight.
I thought I was just getting #gainz but I was not being honest with myself.
I still felt gross 90% of the day.
I didn’t know meal prepping was actually pretty easy.
I didn’t know losing 22 pounds could feel so good.
I didn’t know I could gain a group of friends that all struggled the same way, but didn’t make excuses, they make ways to improve.
I ‘knew’ that nutrition was a big part of the journey but I didn’t know where to start, so I asked for help so I could stop feeling that way.
I am becoming fit in every area of my life, and it’s only getting better🤟🏼
Last week was such a hectic week for me it’s taken me until now to be able to talk about it. I was right on the edge. Stressed so much I couldn’t sleep, to the point when I did get to sleep it was deep, very deep, but then I was woken by my two year old because she was hungry. When I went to get her a bottle I collapsed I was so tired and dizzy. I couldn’t get up my head was spinning. I’ve been through this before so I knew what it was - STRESS. I pushed my body to the limit. If you’re an entrepreneur a CEO or you work in a highly stressful job you’ve probably been here. Your body may react differently to stress but I am sure you know what it does and how it feels. Mine breaks down and shuts off. It’s says Corrie you need to stop ✋ slow down and take care of yourself.
So after laying on the floor for a minute or two to recoup myself, the dizziness finally went away and I was able to get back to bed and feed my very hungry two year old.
I am just like you. I know my boundaries and I push them. Because the work is never ending. Lucky for me (and maybe a reason I was pushing right to the edge) I had a holiday in sight. The stresses from last week are finally fading away and I have been meditating, relaxing and getting some beach time in. Knowing your limits is a fine line!
But avoiding burnout is vital, because to come back from burnout is a very long process.
Rest your mind as much as you rest your body. .
Day 1 of this new program in the books. And I CRUSHED IT. These next 8 weeks, I’m going ALL IN with my team 💛
Focused workouts, clean nutrition and a group of amazing women to work with - GUESS WHO’S AMPED 😎
I was reading Jonah 4 this morning, and it’s been on my mind all day. What I love is how well Jonah knows God, and how relevant his apprehension to see wicked people receive justice is. His whole issue with what God was asking him to do was that by being God’s messenger, he’d be giving, arguably, the most wicked people to have ever lived the opportunity to experience God’s grace and mercy.
I think it’s fair to say we’ve all held some form of judgment towards a particular group of people or a certain person we’ve demonized. What I find interesting about the story of Jonah is God’s gracious correction on where true value lies.
God attributes value to both Jonah AND the limb tearing tyrants of Nineveh and gives BOTH the opportunity to experience his love. What I can’t tell is if Jonah didn’t know his value, or if he did so well that he feared what was actually possible through him.
I think most of us are either woefully unaware of how valuable we are and treat ourselves like awful tyrants would, or that we have a pretty good idea of how valuable we are and it terrifies us.
For many of my clients, my program is the first time they actually chose to invest in themselves and to commit to carving out time for their own well-being. What they experience as a result brings us both to tears. It breaks my heart that so many of us, somehow along the way, become stifled and hindered in living out the fullness of who we are.
Lack of self care is only part of it. At the core, there’s a limited view of how valuable we are, how powerful we are, and what an incredible ability we have to receive and give real LOVE.
When we look at the worth God attributes to every single life, even to the point of laying down his own, we can begin to consider our own value and what’s possible through us. And you know I can’t help but wonder? What if every person was as healthy as they could be, what kind of unhindered impact they could have?
What if you really knew your value?

Our members in Houston enjoyed a happy hour event with a mixture of fresh made sorbets by @beyondbartendingllc elegantly combined with either spiced or white rum (or non-alcoholic). We had a blast and enjoyed playing cornhole as well! 👏🏻😃 #techspace#techspacehtx
