Don’t mind me... I’m playing around with video editing on todays workout.
So today was torment Teresa with Barbell Rows day. 4x12 85lbs & 4x10 100lbs. It felt good tho. I’m ready to finally start to really go heavy.
Could have gone heavier but been working out some back issues and didn’t want to over do it too soon.
In other news.... can someone bring me a burger... I may not make it off the floor tonight 😩😩😩
We’ve come to the end of the Maintain Don’t Gain series and this final tip is probably the most important.
⭐️Tip #10 ⭐️
Get Right Back on Track.
Many of us are all or nothing which makes it really easy to veer way off track this time of year. When you go a little crazy at the staff Christmas party, it’s tempting to just throw your hands up and say, “Well, I’ve already blown it, so I might as well just keep eating and worry about it on January 1.” Do NOT do that! Get right back, right away. Don’t let the unhealthy habits linger. If you’ve overeaten, get back to normal the VERY NEXT MEAL. Get back to your workouts the very next day. Don’t let three days pass without getting in a workout. Enjoy the treats and fun on the season, but get RIGHT back to normal. Do this and you won’t feel out of control and you’ll be feeling good as you start 2019!

If you wait until you are ready you will never do it.
Stop asking for everyone’s opinions hoping that they will give you the permission you are looking for.
Time will not prepare you for what is next in life. Only experiences and the lessons you learn...good or bad.
Jump in and take the risk...even if you are shaking the whole time.
What have you been holding back on?
This is a progress pic, but it’s more than that. I feel good and I’m alive. The ocean is beautiful and one of my favorite places to be. It’s so vast, so powerful, so mysterious yet so peaceful. It’s a part of who I am. 🌊
I almost drowned in Hawaii this past spring while snorkeling. It was the scariest feeling, yet I felt at peace in the ocean. I didn’t panic. I just thought to myself this is really it, isn’t it. I couldn’t get back to shore no matter how hard I tried. I was exhausted, so exhausted. I couldn’t swim parallel to shore, the waves were beating me up. I floated. The waves were pushing me towards the jagged rocks. 🌊
Next thing I know, I landed on the one flat rock amongst all the jagged ones. I survived that day and was rescued. My husband hit the rocks. He broke his big toe, jammed his finger, his knees were a bloody swollen mess and he lost his glasses, his vision. He had been on shore watching. It looked bad but he got me off that rock. My husband rescued me. I’m still here for a reason. It wasn’t my time. 🌊
My pops saved me from drowning when I was 7 years old and he was there with me again at 49, 7 squared. My pops called me his angel, now he's my angel as I was placed safely on that flat rock like a mermaid. Our love of the ocean continues.🌊 #grateful#fitfam#dedication#consistency#fitnessover50#positivevibes#goals#girlswholift#bodypositive#weightloss#weightlossjourney#fitness#transformation#fitnessjourney#workout#girlpower#fitnessover40#mexican#inspiration#gym#lift#liftlikeagirl#gains#ocean#mermaid#love#angel#pops
Do you avoid fitness for fear of injury or reinjury? If so, you're not alone. For some crazy reason, the fitness industry adopted the notion decades ago that getting in shape and pain went hand in hand. "No pain, No gain" was painted on every gym wall in America and these beliefs are still widely held by many people, some of them fitness professionals who should know better.
The truth is getting fit doesn't have to and shouldn't hurt.
Does getting in shape require you to get out of your comfort zone?
You bet. But not feeling like you've been the victim of an assault.
Being a little sore is O.K. but joint pain or debilitating muscle soreness simply isn't and will only make your goal of sticking with fitness that much harder.
I’m living it, but I still don’t believe the changes that are happening to me.
It’s been just over a year since I decided to focus on my health again. I had enough of hating the way I looked, where my health was headed, and how I felt. When I made that choice, I didn’t believe in myself, but I did trust the process. I knew I could find something that would push my body’s limits but be gentle on my joints as I returned from a knee injury. I knew I could add healthier options over time to gain control of my nutrition and my health. I knew that I had an amazing mentor and group to support my journey.
What I didn’t know is how far I would come in such a short period of time!
I didn’t know that I would (*possibly) be in better shape than before my life went to hell 3 years ago! I say possibly because I deleted all the documentation of my initial transformation. After I began losing focus and gaining all the weight back, I didn’t want to be reminded. From what I remember, I weighed less, but my mom and husband both feel I’m more toned now.
I didn’t know that I would end up lifting heavier than I ever did my entire life! It’s about working harder, not longer.
I didn’t know that I would trust my body enough to stop modifying! I always told myself I can modify just so I would try.
I didn’t know that I would discover who I am at my core is OK and I should share that with the world! It will inspire others and help me to stay focused.
