IF YOU WANT TO FLY you’ve got to first be willing to give up the crap that weighs you down.🌺🌸.
I used to be afraid to train chest with the fear that I would lose my boobs or look like a man...👀 I had to quickly learn to get over those fears if I wanted to develop the body I wanted.👊🏼👙.
Needless to say it was chest day for me today. 🤙🏼 One of my favorite exercises to do is Cable-Crossovers.
The stretch on each rep is almost rejuvenating.
The challenge of adding just a little weight is a game-changer.
The definition it can develop in the upper body is addicting.
I did 2 Triple-Drop Sets of 6-8 reps (total of 18-24 reps per set) with each weight-stack at: 17.5lbs, 15.5lbs and 12.5lbs, respectively.
⚠️A common mistake I see doing this exercise, and I find toward the end of a set I do this too 🙋🏻♀️, is the use of momentum and/or other muscles OUTSIDE of the chest to lift the weight. This will simply waste your time in the gym Bc you are not maximizing the use of the muscle you are intending to stimulate, and ain’t no one got time for that.🙅🏻♀️.
If you are tired of wasting time in the gym and need some help, email me by clicking the email link above ☝🏼📬 and I would be happy to help in any way I can!🤲🏻.

I know I haven't been very consistent with my account lately, and I'd love to blame it on lack of time. I tell myself I'm too busy; I don't have extra time for anything extra. But that's not true. I've been letting my anxiety control me - my fear of rejection and failure. Well no more. I'm going to do my best to create content for this account (and my corresponding YouTube account) on a regular basis. It may only be once or twice a week for now, but I'm going to make myself do what scares the crap out of me. Because I'm drawn to this medium of expression. I feel like I can reach people and encourage a more positive way of thinking. So stay tuned for more photos, videos, and boundless shenanigans. 🤓😬😵😜😘
yahh! then here's a #butterfly I took a picture of! this all happened soooo fast man lol my senses were so heightened... yall know I dont shave so I could feel every butterfly tht flew past me and even the ones that didn't. I wanted more pictures!!! there were so many beautiful ones 😫😆 the colorsss!!! ah, my heart ... I'll shave n go bck 🤔😂 #HappyHippie#MotherNaturesDaughter#conqueringfears do they have lady bug houses?

I absolutely love rest days, but I’m growing to love the workout days more and more everyday. There’s no feeling quite like the accomplishment and gratitude you feel after maxing out and knowing you put your heart and soul into a kickass workout 💪🏽 those endorphins are the 💩 I can’t believe the first week of the program is almost over...my challengers are already loving the workouts, the meal plan and their superfood shakes, which makes me a very proud and happy health coach 💕 I honestly can’t wait to see what they accomplish with this program, and I feel so blessed that they’ve allowed me to be a part of their journey. We are changing our lives together, and I love the supportive community we’re building during the process. Talk about an empowering and motivating girl gang 👯♀️🔥 Are you craving something more from life? Do you want that sense of supportive community? Need a coach to help you reach your goals? I’m here for you girl 🤟🏽 drop a 🍑 or send me a message and I’ll help you get set up for a successful journey with us 💃🏽
Fear is rarely conquered in single leap: it’s usually a combination of small, timid steps that feel heavy and huge with the occasional jump which feels a bit too far until you land it.
This photo is me when we’re almost back on dry land after a morning on a small boat being tossed around in choppy waves. Two and a half years ago I almost drowned in the sea in Thailand. I spent the year after bursting in to tears every time I went near or saw waves.
At first I thought I was too weak to overcome my phobia, then realising I was projecting my fear on to my nephews, I decided I couldn’t let it affect them too.
Since then, I had a few months of therapy where I realised I felt betrayed by the sea and that almost drowning had affect me so strongly because of my need to control everything. I slowly made my way back in to the sea over many encounters, lots of tears and lots of support from my boyfriend. .
Fears aren’t one single beast that once we conquer, it stays dead forever. They’re more like a virus that needs steady treatment and may come back if the treatment isn’t kept up. Today I didn’t conquer my fear of the waves, but I moved further along my journey to overcoming my fear of the waves.
What fear have you tackled recently? How did you take it on? .
Día 18 - reto #personalbrandchallenge - Un recuerdo triste 😔
Dijimos que el reto consistía en usar también diferentes formatos de contenido. Para esta parte del reto prefiero usar el vídeo porque es cómodo y hasta liberador.
No les voy a contar cuál es mi momento triste en la descripción porque quisiera que vean el vídeo y si se sienten identificados/as podamos compartir algunas palabras ya sea en los comentarios o por mensaje como ustedes prefieran y si se animan a hacerlo 😊
La vida es una lucha constante y cada día se te presenta como un desafío. Así que lucha y haz lo que quieres, se feliz porque nunca sabes cuando se puede acabar.
Les mando un abrazo inmenso y un agradecimiento eterno por sumarse a este reto.
