Life is a delicate balance of knowing when to LET GO and when to just GO FOR IT 💥 I dunno about you, but I’d rather give it a shot than kick myself for never even trying in the first place. EVERYTHING is a risk. The biggest risk of all is not even TAKING the risk. Who knows? Doing something completely out of your norm could be the thing that changes your life. .
2018 has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding years of my life. There have been tears, leaps of joy, and everything in between. .
Here’s to an even more profound year ahead. My goal is to take even more risks, challenge myself, push into resistance, and keep growing to become the best woman, coach, and trainer that God called me to be.
Something about my new Zyia clothes makes me feel extra confident and sexy 😎😉 #justsayin Combined with getting your shit together with fitness and nutrition, it’s an unbeatable mix. Message me to inquire how to get yours and make a plan for 2019. It is time to #justdoit ✔️ .
I was a little surprised about how much I missed these little guys yesterday while I was down for the count.
I am so thankful for the amount of well wishes I received and the amount of help I was offered. It has taken me a long time to recognize and accept help when it is offered. And I still am not the best at it 🙈 just ask Makal lol.
I used to think that it meant that I was weak and I couldn’t do things on my own, when really it is the opposite. It takes strength and courage to recognize that you can’t do it on your own, and the grace in that is that we don’t have to. There is NO SHAME in needing help. We can’t do it all on our own. We are communal beings, and meant to do life together 💫
What if everything you’re going through is preparing you for what you asked for?
I’ve thought about this a lot lately. The stress, the fear, the love, the anxiety, the power of your people, the strength it takes to be brave, to not have control and just doing the damn stuff that scares you the most...
The best way I can describe the last couple months and what I keep telling my friends, is that it feels like I’m clearing out the last of the cobwebs. Facing my biggest fears and getting ready to move forward and on
So even though life can be so scary, it also feels very exciting and cleansing and humbling AF
It’s a very powerful thing to let go. It’s so powerful to love and let people love you; to ask for help; to make new friends; to let go of others; to be alone; to follow your gut; to trust yourself and to FEEL THE FEELINGS
Taking care of myself is crucial during stressy times. Eating well, working out, working, sleeping, being with friends, meditating, going outside...it makes the day feel doable. It makes me feel like I did something even if that something was just getting out of bed and putting on the same outfit for the 3rd day in a row
So just take a big breathe. Bigger and better things are coming. You’re just making room for them #notetoself
Still plugging away at the PWR+BBG mashup challenge with @whitlayne . I had to switch my arm day workout with my “choice day” on Tuesday and Wednesday to fit in my schedule. Can’t let life get in the way of staying active and meeting my goals :). In other news, I’ve been exploring the new programs on the @sweat ap and I think I might try the FIERCE program for the 12 week challenge starting January 14th or maybe move on to PWR 3.0! So many options AHHH!!! Leggings by @onzie Top by @oldnavy #bbgpwrcrew#sweat12wc#onedayatatime#justkeepgoing#pwrprogram#kelseywellspwr#fitnessjourney#legday#pwrlegsandabs#pwrweek2
Have you ever seen one of those 1970s motivational posters with a cat hanging off a tree that says “HANG IN THERE?”
I was thinking about that poster last night as I watched my cat, yet again, scaling up my curtains.
With intense fervor he was clinging to the fabric determined to reach the top. I have no idea why he’s recently discovered this activity and no idea what he’s trying to get to up there. I’m not even sure if he knows. But what matters, I guess, is that he’s diving in, claws out, and going for it, with no worries about how things will end up. And when he falls (or I help him down) he goes right back at it and tries again.
So “hang in there” cat, and I’ll try to do the same.
100 days of trying hard to be healthier and eat better and I’m down 19 lbs. This app (My Diet Coach) has become part of my life and it’s now second nature to log everything I eat. It is still working, although slower these days. I’d love to keep going and get down 12-17 more lbs. The best thing is I’m not hungry. I load up on protein instead of carbs. #justkeepgoing#everydayisasteppingstone 🥕

Some chapters in the book of life don’t read so well. In fact we wish they hadn’t been written.
We can’t edit the chapters of our lives so we just have to make sure the next chapter is better. ...
