What a fantastic @pawsfurpink event this morning. It was hot but still knocked out that 5k, 45 min yoga sesh, and about 45 min paddleboarding. I'm a wee bit tired after all that but I'm very much going to do this again next year.
Today’s workout was a beast!
Not all workouts are sunshine and rainbows. Fo sho!
Probably wasn’t the best idea to do a leg workout the day after a 5k.
I could not grip the weights. I had to go down in weights from the previous leg workout that I did.
BUT I kept going.
I kept thinking about my headband and how I am
And I tried to remember how I feel afterwards. Self talk works. Truly does.
Anyone else talk to themselves?
I love waking up early on a Sunday and going for a run.
The world is still quiet and I can just run.
Today's run hurt, yesterday was leg day and that meant my legs were spent before I even started, but I still go up and got it done.
What is your favorite weekend tradition?
Happy #fridayintroductions 😁
Let's get to know each other better!
My favorite show hands down is The Office! If you don't get my shirt you should watch the office! (My amazing sister-in-law @madison_stewart13 got me my epic shirt) ✌️
I used to be a cat lover. (When I was a kid I was obsessed) Sadly, I'm allergic to cats. So now I own a dog and have completely turned into a dog person!
When I'm packing for a trip I try really hard to over pack, but I always seem to fail. I usually forget at least one item I meant to bring. When I was younger, we traveled a ton and my family always packed super light. I think it's so ingrained in my brain that I just can't over pack now. 🤷🏽♀️
What about you? Do you watch The Office? Are you a cat or dog lover? Over packer? Tell me more about you! 👍
DEFINITELY #cheaperthantherapy One more workout left to week five. Absolutely LOVING this program. It’s hard, but people of ALL body types can do it. Over halfway to the end of the first round. 4 days a week 30-40 min/day. (Plus it doesn’t hurt, ladies, that @joelfreemanfitness is rather easy on the eyes. 🤪🤪) My second round starts Sept 17th. Who wants to join me? Invest in YOURSELF. It’s the best decision I ever made. #fitnerd#hippierunner#hippierunnerheadbands
HAPPY PLACE. 🎶 I used to listen to this song over and over and over when Anthony and I were broken up, and it still makes me feel all the feels! But now it’s bittersweet instead of just bitter. 🙏🏻
Also, I’m actually VERY self-conscious about my voice, 👎🏻 and I’ve had plenty of people tell me I suck. 🤣 But I am posting this for my little sis @music_da_best because she told me she listens to my singing videos on repeat. 😻 So Miss Shannon, this one is for you!! 👯♀️💕
Yesterday Daniel was doing yard work all day while I was at work unfortunately after chest/triceps day 😅 so he was not about the scheduled biceps/back workout. So we both rested. I could have worked out on my own but I just didn't feel right either so I slept early for once, managed to wake up early, and wasn't tired all day long. Choice not regretted.
I'm loving the flexibility of this program so when life demands our time we can show up and when it sucks up our energy we can rest too without feeling like we're not good enough because we cant do it all! Do you ever get that feeling!?
We're almost to the half way point! We haven't done every workout together but we've kept each other accountable , motivated, and challenged all the way through. 💪😍 Tomorrow I'll be working out virtually with my accountability group for SHOULDERS! 😉 If you want to sweat with us don't by shy, reach out!
We’ve been pretty quiet and took much needed time off running 🏃🏻♀️
Plus did we mention this SoCal 🔥 heat was tough over the summer.
We’re so excited to start training again and start the Fall Running Season 🍂
We usually start with The #RandySimmonsChallenge but we can’t find any info on it. 👎🏼
Guess our first race of the season will be at the @dodgersfoundation ⚾️
Back/Bi’s oh my! Upper body is not my strong suit! With some of these exercises, I can only lift 8-10 pounds. Sometimes even 5! That may not be a lot to you but I can definitely feel it and will get stronger 💪 each day! ❤️🌈🦄 #liift4#isweatrainbows#unicorn#hippierunner
My 5 groups are filling up pretty fast and we start on Monday.
I am capping the groups and have 5 spots left in each. For those of you who join today, I’m also throwing in a
🌸FREE @hippierunners headband!! 🌻
If you sign up with a friend, you get a pack of my “Super Girl” juice too!
Check out my link for the options and let’s chat!
@catineault: omg Brit! I love your shirt!! Just please don’t ever wear it in public. 🙈
Me: Big Mama, one ☝🏻 question: when have you EVER seen me purposely go out in public? 🤣🤣🤣
Grateful for a career 🙏🏻 that allows for THIS to be my work attire, and prevents me from ever having to leave my house!! 🙃🐶🏡 #introvertlife
I got up this morning and did chest from yesterday before work. Early morning workouts are not really my thing but for some reason I was feeling it this morning. 🤷🏽♀️Off work at 5 today knowing we had to leave for Plain City for gymnastics at 5:45. But guess what... I had PLENTY of time to get tuesdays back workout in before we left! I am so proud of myself for getting not only an early morning workout in, but a SECOND one today! Love the convenience of a 23 minute workout that will make you sweat your booty off! 🔥💃🏾 #tle#theladiesedge#hippierunner
Sometimes the transformation success story you're excited to share is more than just your story. 😊
This week is a perfect example. 😉
Yes, I'm sharing a transformation pic of myself...me as a 17 year old with my then 1 month old daughter vs me as a 38 year old GlamMother (because this same daughter is now a mother herself 😳)...because I'm pretty darn proud of my success with my health and fitness! 😌
But I'm also sharing one that I'm even more proud of...my daughter's story. ❤️
You see the next picture shows her success...and hers is even more "Wow!" than mine.
As a teenager we don't wanna always necessarily listen to our mothers. 😬
But just because the want isn't there...doesn't mean that deep down we're not paying attention and taking notes. 📝
This is proof.
Her Senior year = Mom doesn't know anything and I wanna be cool so I'm gonna do whatever. 😳 Likely ate potato chips and drank Dr. Pepper for any meal that wasn't fast food 🙄...just saying. 😉
Pregnancy happens...Mom has been right about a lot of things thus far in life (yes, even the daughter admits to this)...maybe I'll take her advice. 🤔
Drank her shake and didn't "eat for 10" during the making of my grandson Noah...
And 5 weeks after giving birth...she looks almost better than she did before! 💁🏻
So you see...yes, I became a Beachbody coach as part of my journey with my own health and fitness.
But I've stayed a coach because it has proven successful for me and everyone else that decides to give it an honest try, including my family! 👊🏻
No, we aren't our past mistakes...but boy we sure can learn from them, and we can help others avoid making those same mistakes. ❤️
So if you're not happy with your own health and fitness...let us help! We're proof that this 💩 works!
If you're ready to get your own results...
If you're ready to give this a go...
Drop your favorite emoji in the comments and we'll message you and help you get started too!
Don't wait!!! You're very own success story is just a decision away! 💫
Sweaty selfie or it didn’t happen 💁🏼♀️ Also week 5 day 1 check in for me and a huge day 1 KICKOFF for the girls who are starting our next challenge...something we are calling #sizzleandchisel 💪🏻 (the girls on our team had the great idea of making themes for our monthly challenges and I’m loving it!) So day 1 or day 17...we all start somewhere and it’s never too late to start! 🏋🏼♀️😉💜😎
Living my best life: bachelorette edition
I have been a MIA this weekend as I was spending it celebrating with some of my favorite people. The best part of going out and living my best life is that I felt so confident doing it. I never once thought about how I looked, I was never preoccupied with posing for pictures to look skinny, dancing a certain way so my arms didn’t jiggle, or whatever. I went out and had the time of my life (and looked fabulous if I say so myself) 💁🏻♀️
