Some heavy straight weights today. Saturday schedule has been all over he place but thankful for the @irongroundgym crew on teaching me how to bench. A nice 15lbs PR @ 365 today . Me and @puthearahang tied too so I win 2 times.
😍Dinner tonight with my grandparents
😍Loading up on food for my long run tomorrow morning
😍fun fact: I only eat meat when I am out to dinner or eating at someone else’s house, otherwise I’m vegetarian :)
😍also... sweet potato fries are everything!
Learn from your mistakes and make a change for the better. I am so thankful to be where I am today. I believe everything happens for a reason and I’ve become a strong and powerful woman because of my past experiences. Yes, these are real jail mugshots taken from my past run in with drinking. Don’t be ashamed of who you are. Only you can make changes to yourself! #strong#powerful#overcome#struggles#past#nowandthen#change
As an entrepreneur my business is not just a little side hustle, it's my business and my main stream of income. I took a leap in January and decided to quit being a "discount" coach and really make it a financially supportive business. Today I saw this picture right after I read an article about being an entrepreneur and building your "empire". I really hadn't thought of some of the things they said, as I hadn't considered asking some of the people they suggested, just because I really hadn't considered that I was "supporting" or financially helping their small business grow and prosper, it was just a service I needed/wanted. Crazy I know! 🤪
Then I really thought about it. Have I asked people to support my small business that I have been supporting and helping their business thrive for years and the major answer was no, not really. 😔 Boy do I have some communication work to do! 😲
Think about all the small businesses you support:
Manicurist (if they are different)
Owner at your Favorite Little Restaurant/Food Place
Specialty Craft Store
This list could go on and on.... -•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••-
Okay if your a man your list may be different? -•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••-
Maybe some of these people are new to you, maybe you've been supporting them for years, are they supporting you? Or do they just give you excuse after excuse of why they don't support your business? This too may be something to consider? Is your business just as worthy of support from them as theirs is from you? 🤔
WOW. What a weekend. Lengthy post coming. Earlier this week my family and Chel’s family showered me in love for my birthday. Wednesday I started my weight cut, dropping 20 lbs from 263 to 243 and missing my weight class by 1.2 lbs. Friday night was perfect and I couldn’t have asked for a better support system at my graduation ceremony for fire academy. Thank you to my family, Chels and hers, my clients, my chief and my fire service brothers that showed up. Overwhelmed with support. Today, Chels and I both competed at the UPA state meet. I ended up hurtin my knee before the meet even started and it all went down hill. I only hit my squat opener 639, foregoing my third attempt, bench opener, 379 missing 402 twice, and 600/639 deadlifts, barely missing 655 due to a “soft lockout.” SOOO incredibly proud of @chelseawojciechowski going 9/9 totaling 868 by way of 314 squat, 191 bench, 363 deadlift, all four including total are Michigan state records!!! Huge ups to my athletes @johnwatkinsss @middysfitness @gabe3597 for putting up huge numbers, with multiple state AND national records set!!! @enright_12 @torinz94 and Don, my teammates putting up huge numbers, winning their classes and Torin winning Best lifter. @coach_p_strength For prepping us all for this meet and @original_stuech For coming to handle and wrap us. Today was incredible for my whole team. Overwhelmed by the support and love this weekend. 🤗🤗🤗

„Was hast du da?“ - Kleinen Kindern erzähle ich, dass es meine Katze war.
Erwachsene wissen was das ist und fragen trotzdem nach, wollen wissen was der Grund war, wie man seinen eigenen Körper „zerstören“ kann. Dabei sind es meistens die Momente, in denen man von anderen vergessen wird, sich einsam fühlt, missachtet wird, für diese Welt nicht gut genug ist, bis man für sich selbst nicht mehr gut genug ist und man anfängt mit sich selbst zu kämpfen.
Man braucht sich nicht mit den Narben zu identifizieren und diese zu erklären. Manche haben sichtbare Narben, andere keine, aber viele leiden trotzdem leise und zeigen sich von ihrer besten Seite.
Ich hatte nur eine kurze selbstzerstörerische Phase, geringe Narben, eine frühzeitige Therapie, jedoch werde ich immer manisch depressiv sein, so wie viele auf dieser Erde und die Gesellschaft wird immer wegsehen und einige so aus dem Leben reißen.
Seid deshalb füreinander da, seht nicht weg, wenn ihr die Möglichkeit habt zu helfen. ❤️😊
