Branson is going to be a wood-fired grill expert by the time he turns two years old πŸ˜‚ I'm teaching him about all the features of my new @traegergrills smoker, since he help me put it together (Timberline 1300).
.
βœ… I can make temperature adjustments, set timers, and get recipes from the app
βœ… It has a TRU Convection air circulation system for even cooking
βœ… The double-insulated stainless steel interior holds heat better than any other smoker I've used
βœ… Can hold a full 20lb bag of wood pellets
βœ… It can hold up to 15 RACKS OF RIBS
βœ… The flavor is UNBELIEVABLE 😍
.
I just set it up two weeks ago, but I'm seriously in love. What's your favorite food to smoke or grill? Other than ribs, of course.

I get a lot of requests for breakfast recipes, so I'm going to share one of my favorite creations with you... Egg Nests! 🍳
.
I know, it sounds weird; but I promise it's delicious! Sometimes I make them with crumbled goat cheese, but I went with shredded coconut this time to make completely it dairy-free and Whole 30 friendly πŸ™Œ
.
Just curious, do you follow any specific diets or meal plans?

This girl!! She's one of the best things that ever happened to me.

The most reliable way to predict your future is to create it. You probably hear this quote all the time, but what does it really mean? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ
.
For me, it means that I am responsible for creating the results I want, with the decisions that I choose to make every πŸ‘ single πŸ‘ day πŸ‘
.
If I want to be successful in business, I have to work for it.
If I want to be healthy, I have to take care of my body and mind.
If I want to have a strong marriage, I need to show up every day to make my wife feel supported and loved.

Who loves cooking with cast iron? πŸ™‹
.
I'm a huge fan of one-pot / one-pan recipes (as long as they don't have mushrooms), but oven roasted sausage with apples, onions, and bell peppers is definitely in my top 5!
.
Swipe left if this looks delicious ❀ The recipe won't love you back, but you can still get the instructions right here on my post πŸ‘πŸ»

Stress is inevitable.
.
Lifting weights puts stress on your body, it works your muscles, it makes you sore the next day, or even the next week in some cases. But when muscles repair themselves, they get stronger.
.
Mental workouts put stress on your mind. Anxiety puts pressure on your thoughts. Fears are like resistance training for your brain. And just like your muscles, your mind needs to rest.
.
Find the people that make you relax, the passion that helps you de-stress, or the process which allows you to unwind. At the end of the day, our mind is getting stronger from the stress we put on it, but we need to take care of it. We need to let it heal, or it won't be able to do the heavy lifting anymore.
.
How do you unwind after a stressful day? What do you do that allows your mind to recover?

STOP! 🚫
.
Stop comparing yourself to your past! The definition of past is "gone by in time and no longer existing." The only way to ensure you stop living the life you want is by striving to be the person you used to be.
.
I used to be in amazing shape. I was competing in crossfit competitions, trying to set world records, but underneath all of that, I was struggling. I was struggling because I never felt good enough, or strong enough. I never took time to appreciate what I had, because I was too busy striving to get results I thought I wanted.
.
You may have been able to run faster or jump higher, but would you be willing to give up everything else you have now just to get back there? Would you be willing to trade your healthy relationship with food, your beautiful family, and everything else you've created in your life, for another chance to purge your last meal in the middle of the desert? For another shot at bulimia?
.
Me neither.
.
Experiences shape you into the person you are, and I know that I may not be able to run a five-minute mile anymore, but I'm happier. I might not be as fit as I used to be, but I'm comfortable in my own skin. I appreciate who I am, and what I've gone through to get here. I'm doing work every day to be a better version of the person I used to be.
.
I'm not looking back, I'm looking forward.

Intention is powerful πŸ”₯
.
Do you know why is the view always so much better from the top? Because you put in the WORK to get there.
.
You climbed the hill, you made the jump, you made the decisions nobody else wanted to make, and you didn't make EXCUSES 🚫
.
You didn't compare yourself to others, you just kept climbing. You didn't look back down and think, "I'm done, I made it half way". You didn't give up, even though it was hard.
.
You made a commitment; you stuck to it. You set a goal; you reached it. You set your INTENTION, and you did whatever it took to get there.
.
You had the vision βœ…
You created the results βœ…
You made it happen βœ…
.
Now IMAGINE the possibilities when you apply this to every aspect of your life. Imagine what you could do when you set your intentions, when NOTHING can stand between you and the things you want the most πŸ™…
.
So what do you want the most in your life? It can be a personal goal, it can be a financial goal, it can be anything you want it to be!
.
Do you have it yet? Are you committed to making it happen?
.
If so, WRITE IT DOWN in the comments! πŸ”½
If not... what's holding you back?

Craving a delicious burger?

We all have days that are hard. We have all days that we struggle to battle with our own thoughts, or other external pressures.

Enjoy life πŸ™‚

Humbled.
.
This opportunity was truly incredible. I'm standing on a line across from all of these amazing human beings because we all have something in common; we want to make a difference.
.
There is one major difference between us though, I didn't go to a juvenile detention center when I was SIX YEARS OLD for walking out of a toy store with something in my hand. I didn't get thrown in jail when I was 12 years old for walking down the street in the middle of the night, just because I was terrified to go home.
.
When they were children, they didn't think they deserved to have toys. They thought they deserved to get beaten. They feared that they wouldn't live to see their 18th birthday, they thought they deserved NOTHING.
.
Some of these men found solace in the brotherhood of a gang. Some were stealing from the grocery store just to feed their brothers and sisters that weren't being taken care of. Some of them stood up for themselves and took a life to protect their own, or to protect someone they loved.
.
The truth is, we've all made mistakes in our lives. We've all done things we aren't proud of. We have all had to make decisions that we didn't want to make.
.
Are you judging these men right now? Because I did.
.
I was judging them, just like society will. Just like potential employers, coworkers, family, and friends probably will too. They are trying to get a second chance in their lives, but truthfully, most of them never got a first. The opportunities were taken from them before they had a chance at life.
.
Prison shouldn't be a place where people are thrown out and forgotten about, but it's often treated as such. Something needs to change.
.
A friend of mine recently introduced me to @defy_ventures. It's is a leadership training program for incarcerated human beings that WANT a second chance, or maybe even a first. It's for people that are willing to work to make a difference in their lives, and in ours.
.
I want to see these guys get out, I want to see them create jobs, create businesses, create art, create music, create life. I want to see them create a better narrative for forgiveness and acceptance.
.
I'm committed to making a difference.

You can't fail when you're trying to win. You can either win, or you can learn.
.
Sometimes learning might FEEL like failure. Sometimes experience might feel painful. Sometimes knowledge and personal growth might feel like backward progress because it hurts πŸ™‡
.
But it's not.
.
"Failure" is an opportunity to do better next time. It's an opportunity to not make the same mistake again. It's an opportunity to THRIVE. It's an opportunity to come back stronger, and fight harder for your goals πŸ‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ
.
Think back to the last time you thought you "failed", and ask yourself... what did I LEARN from this? πŸ€”

My brain is my worst enemy, and I know I'm not alone.
.
When we keep our thoughts in our mind, they beat us. When we speak them out in the universe, we win πŸ“’
.
Now I can easily convince myself that I don't have to do anything today, but I won't. I won't let my negative thoughts defeat me πŸ™…
.
The best way for me to fight back is to move. I physically walk the negative thoughts out of my mind. I physically do a pushup when my brain is telling me that I can't🚢
.
Commit to moving today, and with every step, every movement, speak your affirmations!
.
βœ… I forgive myself.
βœ… I feel better.
βœ… I am making a difference.
βœ… I'm accomplishment my goals.
βœ… I am going to WIN.
.
Now it's time to go move 🚴
