Had a very busy but fun fall day with the fam! 🍁
First I had coffee with a girlfriend on my downline who is eager to grow her business! ☕️ We did a little coaching on a few action steps she can take to get the ball rolling. (She just got her kit last month and is super excited to dive right in!) 🤗💰🌱 Then the fam and I stopped by my mom’s to feed her cats for her while she’s out of town, we grabbed lunch, Jasper the baby had avocados for the first time 🥑, and then we finished our Halloween costume shopping! 👻🔮🎃
Favorite part of today: being with my #HonorYourBarbell team and experiencing successes and failures together! I even had my hubby, @taylorgoshen, there!! All the @honoryourbarbell athletes were so energetic, fun, and came to lift! Love these people ❤️🏋🏻♀️ Also, I have the best coaches in the entire world 🌎 Nicole and B have built a community that is unbeatable! #Fam
As for my lifts, I went 3 for 6. Snatch 70kg (154 lbs) / 73 miss / 73 miss. C+J 88kg (193.6 lbs) / 91 (200lbs) / 94 (206.8lbs) so close but missed! Third meet and PR’d my meet total at 161. Guys, it was 143 back in April!! Although I can lift more than this (particularly Snatch), I’m so happy with today! It’s my third meet, I spent all last year recovering from an Achilles rupture, and I just started solely focusing on weightlifting 9 months ago. I’m proud, we’ve worked hard, and ready to keep working hard!
People often ask me if there are other black folks in Shanghai and do I talk to them... the answer is, YES!😂 Most of us know each other and try to hangout often. We try to treat each other like family especially when it comes to celebrations. Last night we celebrated the fam Chris! Happy birthday, Chris! 🎉
Per usual @phunkcrew came and tore the spot down. But I guess they won #bestmix which i made. So dope.
I would like share this with @djthrilla_official cause it takes teamwork to make the dream work. And #thrilla definitely kills it everytime.
Figured I’ll share this as I’m a dad first and its my daughters bday.
I don’t care what sort of beast you are or gangsta.
If you have a daughter she makes you a softy. Dadding isn’t an option it’s a choice it’s takes a certain type of man to be a decent one.
My daughter turns the great life into a better one.
I know her shoe size her star sign her favourite colour her best friend.
She changes me in every way possible she’s my everything.
I feel bad for the day someone tries to hurt her they will have me to deal with me.
Everyday is Father’s Day when your always dadding.
She took the selfie while I was platting her hair.
I hope one day when I’m dead and gone you will look back at every picture we’ve ever taken together since day one and see how much I’ve applied myself to you..for you, to SHOW you the definition of what being a man, a father, a good functional member of society, and a best friend truly means. I hope when my time is up if I’m ever able to leave anything behind for you I hope you appreciate all the wisdom and knowledge that I’ve preached to you as much as possible more than anything else you receive from me. Kayson Lynn the last 4 years i have worked myself to death plenty of times just to make sure our heads were above water and looking back at it now it has all paid off as we are moving into OUR next chapter in life. I know throughout the last couple of years I’ve spent more time at work than spending time with you but like I’ll always continue too tell you, “in order to take care of someone else you have to take care of yourself.” You are a very bright kid, kiddo. There’s not a min that doesn’t go by that i don’t look around at everything we have at our house that isn’t because of you. You being my biggest motivation and the only person I have to impress has gotten us where we are today because each time I turn around you stand there watching my every move. I just hope if and when I ever make it to the top in life I hope it will all rub off on you so you can carry on the legacy and one day tell yourself if it wasn’t for my dad I wouldn’t be here. Love you mean it squirt. #herestoanotherbetteryear
