It’s #fearlessfriday y’all!!! No no no, you didn’t hear me...it’s Fear LESS Friday!!!
And in honor of fearing less by understanding more, I wanted to highlight an athlete who had truly embodied the spirit of perseverance, patience, and understanding!
@carinavalceschini has been at almost EVERY tumbling practice since May 2017! Though she QUICKLY grasped the technique of her back handspring and showed a strong command over the physical parts of the skill, it was the mental aspect that took some time for us to work on. Week after week, she came to practice, doing every drill, every exercise, and listening intently to EVERY thing we threw at her! It’s because of her strength of will, her diligent work ethic and ESPECIALLY her patience that she is now throwing her standing BHS her senior Comp season!
I asked her to record a testimonial to encourage any of you that are toiling through your own BHS journey! Though this is Carina’s journey, I hope you can find encouragement and motivation from this to keep going and not stop!
Remember, it’s not a race, it’s a marathon! Comparison is the thief of joy, and this video is not for you to compare your journey to Carina’s. Instead it’s as she says, “I did it and so can you,” just hang in there! And remember, it’s not about getting it, ITS ABOUT KEEPING IT!!! Weeks later, Carina is still on her grind daily to maintain and improve her skill!!! So what are you doin’ still reading this?!? LESSGO!!! 😆👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽💪🏽
• If anyone’s lookin for me I’ll just be here laying on the floor completely exhausted. 🥵
I completely forgot how intense leg day hiit is 🦵🏼🏃🏼♀️
After almost an hour of shoveling some heavy ass snow I still came in and got my workout done. 💪🏼
Now, off to shower & make myself an adult beverage because I deserve it 🍷
I just ran 6.5km without stopping coz I had time to kill and I thought meh il go for a run. Who am I? 😂 A year or so ago I could not run from one lamp post to the next, let alone want to, by choice! It astounds me that I'm capable of this. I feel like I am not me. Because I am not the me that I once was, I am fit and the healthiest I've ever been and goddammit it feels good! 👊 If I can go from that to this then I truly believe anyone can. I'm just a regular working mama and we can ALL acheive what we put our minds to, it's not our bodies that stop us #mindovermatter#runnershigh#fitness#fitspo#running#sweatitout#healthyjourney#inspire#weightlossjourney#myjourney
My lunch earlier this evening with a large glass of Tea and Mango Aloe. You know what's funny?? My husband and kids would not eat any of what you guys see on my plate. Up until a month ago! Now I cook extra to make sure I always have a few extra servings for meal prepping because I've woken up the next day to finding my food is gone!! They think it's a compliment.🤔 I call it disrespect!!👊🏼 (I kid. I kid) 😂😂 No! I Love that they love to eat what I'm eating especially because it makes it easier to cook off of one menu!! 😎
Dying in Master trainer Joy Allen Thursday night class at Club northwest !!! I love that she’s my mentor ❤️💕 my knee is finally starting to recover and then I’ll be back to jacks and pop ups !! #myjourney#fitmon @rippedfans
This week has been tough. I workout both gym and home double days even and I still don’t believe it’s enough. I get in my head thinking I should be further along, why isn’t the scale moving. I am my worst critic and it pisses me off on those days that I just don’t trust the process
I know during this journey there are going to be many more days and weeks that I feel like this. It has happened in the past. The difference this time around, is I REFUSE to give up on myself
I am stronger than any negative thoughts that pass through my mind or from those that may not have dreams of their own. You see my goals are greater than my fears. And your girl got big dreams of living a happier healthier life and I will get there no matter what. This is my journey👊🏾
One thing that helps me with my practice is to make it fun. If its not fun and enjoyable don’t do it. The more you enjoy the process the more benefits you will get out of it physically and mentally. Maybe this week challenge yourself to come up with a super awesome fun original flow that meets your needs and see how it works for you. Let me know if you made up your own flow this week. I would love to hear it!!
💖 My Journey 💖
I’m a single mother of two beautiful daughters. They have recently turned 4 & 6 years old.
Three years ago when my marriage ended I decided it was time to make a change. I was at the heaviest I had ever been in my life. I was tired, rundown, stressed and very unhappy. I didn’t hardly have the energy to get through the days. Sure I was going through a lot but I knew something had to change for myself and my girls. I was living off junk food and zero sleep.
A close friend contacted me and introduced me to the health program I am still currently on and absolutely loving. Within a few days I already felt better. The fog had lifted. I was starting to see the light. Within a few weeks I was feeling good. Something I hadn’t been able to say in a while. My energy was coming back, I wasn’t constantly tired even though I still had broken sleep. My moods were improving and I wanted to do more instead of staying inside at home with the kids everyday. Within a few months I had dropped a fair amount of weight and my clothes were too big. I was going for daily walks with the girls and dog, I was feeling so much better.
I have never looked backed. It has honestly changed my life for so many reasons.
I’m now fit and healthy. My anxiety is so much better. I sleep great and have a lot of energy and just feel great inside and out. It has made me so much happier within myself and I feel it shows.
I’m a full time stay home Mum studying part time. I don’t have a huge cash flow but I make it all work because to me my health is so important. I now have the time and money to go to Bootcamp but before that I would just simply walk with the girls and the dog. Or run the stairs. You can make it happen if you want. I have continued with my super smoothies this entire time because they make me feel so good. They are convenient and affordable and my girls love them too. I love taking my girls to training with me. I want to always lead by example and they see I take care of myself health and fitness wise. If I can do it I’m sure you can too 👊🏻👊🏻🙌🏻❤️ #myjourney#mylife#health#fitness#supersmoothie#goals#motivation#commitstriveachieve#positive#mother#happiness
I finally found a full length mirror at this new gym.. only 6 months later 😅 it was in the tanning room ☀️ I am so excited to be tanning again I feel SO confident when I’m toasty 🤤 Please no negative comments about the health risks tanning has, I am aware of them.
Can we please appreciate that core definition.. I mean not the best BUT THERE IS SOMETHING THERE 😍 Stay tunes for my 6 pack!! Just kidding the only 6 pack I want is beer 🍻 I would not suit those washboard abs 🤷🏼♀️ Today I got my cardio out fo the way! Cracked the ol’ skipping rope out of my gym bag.. she was a little dustY it’s been a minute... What did you workout today?? Comment and let me know 😇
My journey to where I am now has been one hell of a roller coaster❤️ .
I have been lost. .
I have been a quitter
I started well over 300lbs. .
I have been depressed
I have had immense anxiety
I have spent many many hours feeling sorry for myself
And then I said fuck this😬😬😬
this is not the rest of my life💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻
So I took a chance I did something I had never done before. And I followed through⭐️😊
And damn did that one choice change EVERYTHING❤️
I MAY not be the most beautiful
I MAY not have the best body
I MAY not be the strongest.
I MAY be too sensitive.
I MAY be lacking skills
I MAY be lacking the knowledge
I MAY be to skippy for others.
What my children see....
A BEAUTIFUL mom.
A CONFIDENT woman.
A mom that LOVES her self & body.
A strong mamma.
A mom that CARES.
A mom that built FREEDOM for the family.
A SMART mom the way GOD designed.
A mom that's FUN and still has the energy to skip at the park with them and show them how to love their body with confidence
Stop wasting your precious days waiting for Something to change, be the change you want to see❤️I am always here to help you ❤️❤️❤️
