All I wanted was to take a decent pic after my workout 😂😅 Thanks @hongsafit for the photo bomb lol 😆
But seriously, I love a good back and shoulders workout! Getting pumped delts and lats really enhance the v-taper appearance. I'd probably go as far as saying my "back and shoulder" day is my favorite, probably because they do actually improve the v-taper in the long term and having a well developed back and shoulders looks great!
What's your favorite body part to train? Tag a friend who you know has a favorite!
I never thought I struggled with it and maybe I didn't until now. I'm sure grief plays a huge part in it.
But when I hit the gym, even for a half hour, it gives me time to refocus my thought pattern.
The increase of blood flow to my brain, the surplus of endorphins, the sweat pouring from every inch...this is my antidepressant, my therapy.
Of course, it isn't the be all, end all but it is definitely up there on the list.
I am so grateful and thankful God gave me a body that can move. I will never take that for granted.
Just get up and move. Don't waste your life.
"Your powerlessness is directly correlated to the gap between your hidden expectations & your reality." How many times have you found yourself saying "I should be further along than I am, my life doesn't look anything like I thought it would at this point, that wasn't supposed to happen, this isn't where I saw myself being at (insert age)"?
Goal setting is in an important part of growth & moving forward in your life & business, but one thing I always tell my entrepreneurs on coaching call is "stay focused on the vision, but open to the path" because if you are white knuckling your way through the journey you miss out on things that you couldn't have planned yourself because you're so caught up in how it "should happen" when loosening your grip may open up opportunities that are better aligned for you. When I was 20, my 5 year plan was that at 25 I would be happily married, with a business making millions, living my dream life. Reality was, I was divorced working endless hours as a personal trainer figuring out where my life was headed. When you get to these points of your expectations not matching reality you can give your power away to constantly talking about what it "should" be or how it was "supposed" to go refusing to accept reality. Or you can let down your ego, swallow the truth & look at reality for what it is because the present moment is the only place where you can make change.
"Sometimes you have to realize that the game of life has changed (sometimes dramatically) & you need to pivot. Deal with your reality. Wake up, you're in the water. Stop waving your arms about & paddle to shore, dammit!" #fitness#businesscoach#entrepreneur
I do not bounce back from an eventful weekend like I use to😂 so even though I was tired this morning, I still got out of bed at 5:15am, and completed my morning routine which includes working out. And I didn't use the excuse of feeling tired to be easy on myself. I increased my weights, I moved my feet a little faster, and I gave it all I got! Friends, it's a CHOICE. There will always be something because it's life! But it's a choice to do the thing you need to do in order to have the best quality of life God has planned for you💜👊🏾💪🏾 #nowgettowork#nevermissamonday
1 Month Off from Training, Indulging in the Holidays and I still lost weight? 🤷 I did stay on track with Intermittent Fasting which I am a firm believer in. The gym/working out for me is an outlet - stress, bad days, me time. So it's time for me to get back on track! I don't want to lose weight, I want to keep my mind strong and sharp. So. This is your #motivationmonday post to get moving. Whatever your goals are; and know that it is okay to take a break! Just get back to it!!
