I’ve had to stay away from heavy squat snatches for the past few months because of an injury, so it’s been fun to be getting under the bar again. Thanks as always to my snack pack @anniebellie87 @ogcountrygrammer @ljhoaglund and to the whole @crossfitskopos crew for your encouragement. Your box is one of my favorite places to be. 🥰

Conquer athletes @mango__peach and @wcarter45 challenging each other to better their handstand walks. With the addition of the handstand walk event in last year's regionals, nothing is off the table.
Being a Conquer athlete means becoming the type of athlete that is prepared for anything and everything. Spend 2019 conquering your weaknesses and reaching your dreams.

“006 – Be Honorable”.
Hold yourself to a higher standard. Keep the commitments you have made and work hard at being a better version of yourself. When you have integrity inside and outside of the gym, it sticks out to others. Cutting corners is not a shortcut to success. .
History is filled with stories of people who had great integrity, especially in the face of adversity. .
Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” .
Are your actions and how you conduct yourself different when you are around others compared to when you are by yourself? .
Are you a good person to others? Think of someone in your life you consider honorable. What qualities do they have that are honorable, and how can you be inspired to possess those same qualities? .
Be honest, be upfront, and be yourself. Live with honor. .

In the moment I was happy to do something that I was familiar with. I was happy to just lift. I took the last three days off because I needed some clarity of where I was going and who I wanted to be. It took a lot of personal growth for me to really find out where and how I wanted to make something of myself..Someone asked me how I work a 8-5 job while going to CrossFit. And my answer was because I love It, so it’s not hard. I have a nice finish to the end of my day. CrossFit is always there, ya know ? You decide when to pick up the barbell, the barbell is not going to pick you up. Go to work. #crossfit#crossfitmom#keepgoing#momblogger#motivation#onedayatatime#momfitness#nevergiveup#fit#fitness#fitmom

Pensem numa pessoa feliz! Difícil traduzir em palavras o que eu estou sentindo. Senta que lá vem a (minha) história: Estava(estou) tratando uma depressão e a minha médica @draaliciaoliveira sempre me falava que precisava fazer alguma atividade física, pois isso que me ajudaria para valer com a depressão. Ela sugeriu que fosse alguma aula coletiva e disse que tinha que ser algo que me sentisse cansada ao fim do treino. Sabia que me inscrever em academia tradicional não ia dar muito certo, no passado me inscrevi diversas vezes, frequentava algumas poucas vezes e depois desistia. Pensei em personal, mas sabia que acabaria desistindo da mesma forma. Vi o anuncio do @p9fit.presencial @p9fit no insta da @cfp9 e meio que no impulso me inscrevi. Desde o evento de abertura do programa vi que eles tinham algo diferente, uma vibe boa. Comecei a frequentar os treinos, percebia o cuidado que eles tinham com os novatos como eu. Na primeira semana senti muita dor, pensava em faltar, mas consegui ter força para persistir. Cada treino que eu conseguia terminar passou a ser uma vitória e fui compartilhando essa minha experiência aqui meio que como um diário, que tinha o objetivo gerar um comprometimento pessoal maior com o processo. O plano alimentar foi um capítulo à parte: @annalounutri colocou muita comida! 🤣 Só que era comida de verdade, com o propósito de gerar adesão ao plano e eu aderi 100% (ela tinha colocado um pedacinho de chocolate 70% todos os dias!) Como não amar essa nutri? Planejava as refeições da semana, comprei uma balancinha e passei a levar lanches do plano até para minhas viagens de trabalho. As primeiras pesagens não foram fáceis, em algumas tinha ganho peso, mas não deixei que a balança me desanimasse. Fui persistindo nos treinos, comecei a fazer melhor os movimentos e até aumentar cargas. Chegava nos treinos e todos os coaches sabiam meu nome! As roupas mega apertadas começaram a me servir melhor. Comecei a interagir mais com as pessoas nos treinos e, aqui, comecei a ter feedbacks de que estava servindo de incentivo para outras pessoas. Que legal! (Continua nos comentários)
Love this video, such a great illustration of what's going on in the Linea Alba.
Is your trainer aware of Doming?? Are the pre or post natal qualified?
• • • • •
#DiastasisRecti 🤰 is more common among women who have been pregnant. A #pregnant belly places a lot of outward pressure on the abdominal muscles. They can separate to accommodate and can go back together in the postpartum period. However, when the separation doesn’t close after birth it can become an issue. .
When the left and right sides of the #Rectus abdominus are not well approximated it can become difficult to create the adequate core strength and stability to support our bodies and manage pressure during certain activities. Along with this can come pelvic floor issues, incontinence, lower back pain, hip pain, etc. Sometimes the tissue along the linea alba can tear and organs can protrude in a little bump like the one painted above my belly button. This is a hernia. .
Certain exercises you should stop doing if you have a diastasis? In the short term- exercises that cause doming as I demonstrated in the video. (Often times crunches, V-ups, leg lifts, etc.) Once you learn to recruit the deep core and utilize your breathing to manage pressure you can monitor each movement to see if you are able to complete it without this doming. You can temporarily regress to an easier variation and work on it. Have a friend check you while you do the exercise or record yourself to monitor for it. .
Learning to manage the intra-abdominal pressures are key. Breathing, deep core recruitment, postural alignment, thoracic mobility and even shoe selection play a role in this. There’s not a simple “Do this exercise to make it better”. Diastasis Recti, pelvic floor, and most other issues require a whole body approach to improve long term. .

Soon it will be Christmas break, so getting my “Sanity Time” in while I can. I wanted to try heavyish OHS earlier. They felt decent, so wanted to see what I could hit as far as numbers today. They were shaky at the end but they were new PRs so 💁♀️ Hit last year’s goal of 175# then 180# 💪 Marc has his box with us so I decided to play around on that and got 34” box jumps! I’m 5’1” with my shoes on so was pleased with that. 2019 I’m ready for you 🥊 #weighlessliftmore#hypothyroidismweightloss#crossfitmom#strongmom#ohs#boxjumps
Christmas season was always a fun time for my dad and our family. He and my mom would go out of their way to make it special. Trips to look at lights, decorating and of course the music 🎵This year my mom and I made wreath for my dad. Just a little something special for him. Can’t believe it’s been 9 years!!! I love you Daddy...Miss you everyday 😘
Ladies, I have ✌questions for you! .
1) Are you team pants 👖 or team show some leg 👗? Swipe ➡️ and .
2) Are you team 💚, ❤ or 🖤 when it comes to holiday #fashion ? 🎄🎁
I feel like there are so many holiday festivities this time of year and it's kinda fun to get out of #activewear and into #realclothes ! I don't dress up often so I have a blast experimenting with mix matching staples like black leather pants, blazers, and pumps with new tops and fun accessories and make-up. I like having different options too depending on weather, venue and clientele! I also secretly 🤫 enjoy throwing on a dress here and there too... it makes me feel #fancy because most days I'm in leggings and sweatshirts 😂 It also let's me see what all the hard work all year long looks like outside of the gym💪
If you have a holiday party this weekend, hope you have a wonderful time!
Cuando te ves a las 8:30 de la mañana en una reunión del colegio con la psicóloga y con la profesora de tu hija mediana piensas; esto irá bien! Ves que todas las partes se ponen de acuerdo en un objetivo común; sacar la mejor versión de ella! Trabajamos en conjunto con las mismas pautas y entre ellas está; el refuerzo positivo. A esto le sumamos sesiones de apoyo externas para gestionar su comportamiento.
Cuando toda tu buena fe, amor y energías se vuelcan en conseguir que todo salga bien, cuando haces algo así cómo un; ” vale por...” para que en el cole tengan la imagen de lo que ella conseguirá si durante el día su comportamiento ha sido reforzado en positivo un mínimo de veces. Cuando crees que estás en el camino, de repente hay pasos atrás, mantienes la esperanza puesta en que va a salir bien! Debe salir bien! Lo vamos a conseguir! Y llegas al cole y la maestra te mira con cara de; puffffff y te explica que tu hija hizo de todo menos lo que debía hacer. Pondría ejemplos pero para qué? Aportan poco. Lo bueno es la capacidad, que hemos aprendido en esta casa, de empezar de cero cada día y dar la oportunidad de hacerlo y hacerlo bien ;) mañana será un gran día!! #comportamientoinfantil#refuerzopositivo#niños#gestionandohijos#buscarayuda#potencial#oportunidad#energia#crianzarespetuosa#crianzaconamor#mama#maternidad#motherhood#mothers#crossfitmom#crossfitmoms#fitmom
