“The quieter you become, the more you can hear.” •
I often feel like I am running myself ragged with nothing to show for it. I feel like I have a billion things in my to-do lists INCLUDING making more to-do lists. I have big goals. We know this. I’ve told you. Im pretty great at making my life known because I’m an open book. But what I’m AWFUL at is showing my struggles. •
Tonight, on our team call, we talked about struggles. What are mine? Well, I love being a badass that feels invincible, but in reality, I need to feel special to others and hate when I’m left out. I struggle with comparing myself DAILY. I never feel like I am quite good enough. This hits SO hard when I can’t get all the loads of laundry done, the dishes, cook dinner, do all my homework, study, give the kids a bath, take Ivy out, put the kids to bed, answer messages, grow my business, send more messages, out Anden BACK in bed, AAAAAND make it to bed at a decent time myself. Can’t accomplish all those things plus 2-3 things more on my to-do lists?! FAILURE. “I’m sure someone better than me could do it.” I say to myself in my head for the 16291st time today. •
But what if for ONCE I cut myself some slack? What if for ONCE I told myself that I was doing a great job? Would tomorrow be different?
Would I get out of bed with more force? With the overwhelming happiness to get shit done?! Maybe. I’m sure as hell willing to try. Instead of the overwhelming doom I feel every time my feet hit the floor in the morning. Like I feel the failure before I even start. •
So here is my post for accountability. Tomorrow is not a Monday, or a new month, or a new year. Just a new day. A new day to make new goals and TRY to stick with them. And if I don’t? Learn to love myself just a little more anyway. 😉
Tomorrow our combat conditioning class is at 7pm. It’s full at the moment but book it and hold a spot on the waitlist , as people drop as the day does on. We will see you there. @maamounify #beastmode#dragon#hardworkpaysoff#seeprogress
I do pistol squats...
I do pistol squats because they challenge my body in a way that I feel increases the neural pathway from my brain to my core & limbs. In plain English, I feel the mind-muscle connection strongest w/ pistols.
If you have the joint mobility, some strength & alright balance you can start w/ regressed versions of pistols. Do a pistol squat to a bench or to a step if the range of motion just isn’t there yet. Baby steps become giant staircases after a while...
Shoulder day is ✅! (SHOULDER day? I never had a program that dedicated an entire day to shoulders... 🧐) My little buddy did it with me and we were cracking up the whole time! Do your kids ever join your workouts? 😃

Yesterday was a good day. I barely felt like I was dieting. So much I forgot to post haha. Day 41, we’re trucking along. Today was great as well. I am feeling confident going into tomorrow as it rounds off the first half of the diet. Holding down the 7-8lbs down. Looking to push that to the double digits before phase 3. But let’s talk more about yesterday. I started working out in the mornings before work and discovered why that is huge for my cut. I made a whole video about it that will upload tomorrow around 2:30 EST. But yesterday I ate some wings and then my parents invited me over to cook on their new hibachi grill. And talk about fun. I was a pro! I need to get one of those things. I cooked chicken and rice for the family and broccoli and ribeye for myself. Only problem is I only got photos of the rice hah. Yesterday was a great day! Be sure to look out for that YouTube video. It’s one of my very best
