Someone once told me you are only 2mm shift away from a totally different life. 👊🏼 One SMALL step, one choice, one decision could take your life in a while new direction.
I made a choice over 4 years ago to start my health and fitness journey. To let go of the BS excuses I had been telling myself for years as to why “I can’t” lose weight and get healthy and made the decision to put in the WORK it took to gain back my health! That one decision not only helped me drop 50lbs and gain massive confidence but it helped me find my PASSION to help others, it taught me so much about who I am and what I am capable of, it helped me finally free myself of a life I felt stuck in.
Becoming a coach and sharing this gift with others was NOT how I imagined my life playing out but I can tell you that one decision. One choice. One shift. took me exactly where I needed to be!!! Has there been a time in YOUR life that you can remember making ONE decision that maybe you didn’t even realize was that big of a deal, and it forever changed your life?!
Thursday morning sleepy struggles in this house. 😴 Not gonna lie the past two weeks have been a real struggle for me. I came back from vacation with so much work I’ve been drowning. Every night I come home completely drained and then struggle to get back up the next morning. I love my job and what I do. But damn is it mentally exhausting. I need to do better. I must do better.
“So awesome you’re so active! Just don’t get too skinny, okay?” Or how about “Lifting weights is cool, just don’t end up looking like a man.” 🙄
It’s takes a looooot of Grace and biting of my tongue when we get these comments, am I right?!
But here is what you must remember, no one will EVER care about your goals as much as YOU. You are the only one that knows deep down what your motivations are! Keep drowning out those hater and chase those goals momma 👊🏻💕
#outfitandfit for the lovely @breezyinprogress ❤️ I think that I dress a little frumpy, because that’s what I’m comfortable hiding in, and I can’t wait to dress a little more form fitting one day!!! Gotta work hard for what you want!
Last week I couldn’t imagine how I’d do 5 rounds, so I Scarlett O’Hara’d it. You know, “Fiddle dee dee, I’ll think about that tomorrow.” and proceeded to pretend that information didn’t exist.
And then it was tonight. @jennifer.laur.fitness ‘s 100’s x5 + ankle weights. ⚰️⚰️⚰️ I turned up the music & went for it.
I did it. Every rep, every round. No cheating, no shaving corners.
I feel great about it & while I have a ways to get back to where I was, I’m happy with where I am & what I’m doing. There’s such peace to that.
Been down for the count the first couple weeks of August. I’ve been fluctuating in weight and got back into the 230s a little. Getting my focus back and getting back on track this week with two thirty active minute walks under my belt and hitting my 10,000 (7,000 on weekends) goal every day 😁
I’m only a pound down from the first, but I’m not going to beat myself up for it. Instead I’m going to acknowledge that this process is going to take time and that I am at least putting forth the effort to get moving. I have been kicking ass since Thursday (which, considering I had ZERO free time on Thursday, I’m effing proud of myself for getting not only my steps in but ALSO my thirty active minutes in at work that day!) and I’m hella proud of myself for pushing through the “God, I really don’t want to...” the past two days and getting those walks in.
Hubby is grocery shopping now. I got two and a half weeks to crush another four pounds. If I do my meal prep that goal is a piece of cake! 😁
One step at a time. That’s all it takes. I’m just glad I’m starting to come to terms with it 😊 Thank you so much Carisa (@fitforplaid) for putting these calendars together each month. It’s a proud moment when I can put my sticker on them at the end of the day 💕
Kickboxing was amazing!!! I wish the place was a little more affordable, but besides that the class is great!! I was able to walk to Trader Joe’s and home after. It was a great way to end the day! #fitbabesunited
So apparently I have a cam lesion...I have never heard of this. I’ve been experiencing groin pain on my right side off and on since February so I decided to go to the Dr just to make sure it wasn’t a hernia. Well, she said she thought it was probably muscle strain but she had me get an X-ray to be sure. She looked at both sides and the side I’m experiencing pain on has the cam lesion. So now I need to see a specialist to find out my options and what they recommend for treatment. I swear, the older I get the more weird stuff my body does. This is actually just a hip deformity than developed during childhood though, says google, and the pain is just most likely the damage that’s happened over the years. I can add this to the list of weird things wrong with me. This will be 2nd place to the Raynaud Syndrome I have in my fingers. Google that if you want to see something really odd. I refuse to let this derail me though. I still got my workout done, but I’ll be easing up on the heavy lifting on my legs for the time being #fitgirlsdontquit#fitbabesunited
SO many forest fires all over this great earth😬Our beautiful province today declared a state of emergency. I pledge to find ways that I can help🙏🏻There are 559 active fires burning across B.C. with the danger rating risen to ‘high’ or ‘extreme’ in virtually every part of the province. More than 381,000 hectares have burned so far.
There are 1,500 properties under evacuation order and 9,000 properties under evacuation alert. This means 3,050 people are on evacuation order with 18,720 on evacuation alert. Currently, the province says more than 3,372 firefighters and contractors are actively engaged in fighting fires in all fire regions of the province. This includes 1,427 B.C. contract personnel, as well as 436 out-of-province personnel from Alberta, New Brunswick, Northwest Territories, Quebec, Saskatchewan, Parks Canada, Australia, Mexico and New Zealand”courtesy of @globalbc
To all of those affected, those fighting the fires and those saving as many animals and wildlife that is possible..... may you find the strength to continue fighting and know how grateful we are for you all♥️so much respect.
You guys! At the beginning of this program I’m doing, I saw results right away. Within two weeks I was feeling leaner and more confident and I could see a difference when I looked in the mirror. But then I went into #yolo mode and started treating myself way too much. Not caring how my body felt and whether or not I was doing what was best for me. I continued working out, but guess what happened... I stopped seeing results. Actually, I GAINED my weight back! .
But I’m now going to start incorporating something new and I can’t WAIT to get started! It’s gonna take time and a completely different change in my mindset, but I’m ready!! .
My workouts won’t change, but my mind will. .
I've made a decision. I've chosen to give up my triathlon place. I wasn't ready for it. I think the breakup really threw me off track and I didn't do what I should have done.
I wasn't looking forward to it like I have done with previous events, so I've made the choice to take a raincheck.
What I'm going to do is train first, then when I'm on an established training plan/habit/programme, *then* I'll sign up for another. I will do one, without a doubt. Just not until I'm fitter. I feel like this is the sensible decision to make, even if it feels like I've failed.
