Totally maxed out my legs today on Day 20. Love love love this program. All of the sweat at home, in my basement, while my kids slept and under 35 minutes. If this doesn’t get rid of my head cold nothing will!! 😉
Yeah I know my ex is a fuckboy & is trying to get into my mates, I’d appreciate if everyone stopped messaging me about it. I’m going through one of the toughest times of my life so far and I don’t need the constant negativity and reminders of the time I wasted with him.
Melhor sorriso que saiu pós treino estilo hamster 🐹 na esteira (média 4’24”/km, com dois tiros no meio 😵). Foi duplamente corrido 🏃🏻♂️⏳... pra conseguir acabar antes da academia fechar!!
Ufa 😅, deu tempo!
Semana que vem tem Golden Four lá nas Minas Gerais!!!😁🤗
They call us millennials- recognized for short attention spans, high aspirations, and delicate spirits always prone to failure.
Society has trained us to keep striving for excellence and hard work was defined for us as always running. Subject to the Red Queen Hypothesis, we run just to keep in the same place, and to excel, we must run even faster.
Amidst this game of Tom and Jerry, amidst this convoluted web of success, how foreign we are to the virtue that can result from embracing the 'ordinary' and 'silence' of life.
That which is ordinary and of silent nature does not amount to a state of apathy nor lethargy. We learned from our parents that to sustain our quantity of life, we must work hard. But no one taught us that working hard doesn’t mean to be constantly plugged in and running. No one taught us about quality.
The bitterness of the ‘ordinary’ and ‘silence’ is a part of the human experience that we must value as a time for reflection: both in our physical journey of life as well as the spiritual.
I am a millennial, and as I struggle to find purpose in a world far vaster than my comprehension, I’ve learned to embrace the 'ordinary' as my significance. I’ve learned that I must live as an awaiter of my Imam, with the hope that one day I can answer the call of my Hussain. But as I await, it is the life of Imam Baqir that serves me as inspiration to keep going.
Today is the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Baqir. And today, I learned that in all these years of my life, never did anyone narrate to me how Imam Baqir was martyred. In my masjid, I have heard a lot about the valor of Imam Ali, the martyrdom of Imam Hussain, the selection of Imam Jawad as inheritor of the throne, and the imprisonment of Imam Kadhim. But never have I ever heard anything more about Imam Baqir than a few religious hadiths.
Because Imam Baqir’s life story doesn’t fit into our idea of the scenic trials and tribulations a believer must face. .

after brunch I decided to go for a walk bc idk I'm so used to leave the house on saturdays and it wasn't as hot outside. it did me good but I also overthought things. back home I already made dinner but wasn't really hungry so I had it a lot later actually. then in the evening I sat w my parents on our patio and tried to talk about some deeper things but it doesn't come naturally to me it feels so forced.. I'm actually better at small talk w them even though I hate small talk. but I tried I guess
I thought this move would give me a reset, a new motivation and that I’d have unstoppable enthusiasm in the gym. Boy was I wrong. Lemme tell ya.. the struggle is REAL. I have no itch to get to the gym (luckily I am still eating clean 💯). My body hurts & I don’t feel well, not exactly the way I expected everything to go. 🤦🏼♀️ But you take what you’re given & make the most of it. I may have a slow, disappointing start... but shit it’s still a start, em I rite? 😁✌🏽Regardless of the struggle I am unbelievably blessed to be where I’m at 😍#ThisIsWhenDisciplineCountsTheMost#OnlyGoingUpFromHere#HellaDramaticPictureToo#Extraaaa
I've learnt a lot over the last few years of my life. I've read a ton of books. I've been blessed to have access to some great artists young and old. One of the most insightful things I've come to realise is that the most successful person in the room is ALWAYS the hardest working. If you are willing to out grind the competition then the universe will provide. It may take a month or a year or a decade but if you grind every day with a purpose it will provide EVERY time #universallaw
Though things can get under
My strength will not waver
My resolve will not be broken
My relationships will be stronger
Better than ever
I will succeed
I will conquer
I will battle
I will win
I will never give in
Those who would see me fail I thank you for you remind me daily of who I would never want to be.
For those who wish me well I thank you. You often provide the support in ways you don't even know
You help feed me the strength, the resolve and the will to carry on and carry on I will for long is the fight.
