“It always seems impossible until it’s done.” -N. Mandela
We all have those times when we talk ourselves out of doing something under the guise of it just not being possible.
But what if we did the opposite? What if the next time you had some big idea, you went for it BECAUSE it didn’t seem like it could be done?
I challenge you to pursue what “hasn’t been possible”...at the very least, you’ll learn something new. And even more, you just may surprise yourself.
When’s the last time you did something “impossible?” I wanna hear it all.
Last week, I overindulged nutritionally AND skipped working out, but I soaked in the light of my incredible family, celebrating a special birthday. Tomorrow I begin a new circuit. I pretty much already know the resistance my body will create—but with my spirit soaring like this, I say: BRING IT ON.
The days that you question why you’re doing something are the days that you can’t afford to quit. Just out here on the grind like I’m every day trying to be irresistible to that special someone. #noedit#toptierlighting#alphalete P.S. the green 3D is the best
This life has given me a lot of experiences. I’ve dealt with loss, depression, not wanting to live, with pure hatred for myself and who I was and what I had become. I’ve been at my very bottom, ready to give up and throw my life away, and yet I was able to survive. I was able to lose over 230 pounds and keep it off for 5 years now, with healthy eating and exercising. I’ve been able to overcome my insecurity of my excess skin and the hatred i had for myself most recently, by challenging myself to believe in myself and by pushing myself to do something I never imagined doing. This pushing led to me competing in physique shows with @shreddedcheddarproductions, the second coming yesterday. During the night show, a moment I will never forget happened, when I was given a standing ovation and awarded the heart trophy for my weight loss story. Words could never begin to explain how much that moment meant to me and how thankful I am to my Dad, my amazing friends - Cody, Casey, Jake, Michael, and Kasea, my coach Patrick, Evie, Stacey, Kevin, the other judges, the fans, and everyone else who were there to make that moment happen and make it so special for me. It was unbelievable and humbling, something Ill always be grateful for. From the bottom of my heart, thank you to each and every one of you.
•Change of Scenery and some light kettlebell work. I’m used to always working out at the gym with mirrors where I can watch and correct my form. This was different and a good challenge.
You don’t have to be at the gym every day lifting heavy iron, just get out and get moving! It counts!!•
