I get messages all the time asking how I stay motivated and to be honest some days it's freaking hard! 💯 Like this morning. I had a super long day yesterday didn't get home until late and when my alarm went off this morning I almost turned it off and slept in!⏰😴 . . . Buttttttt I didn't! I got up drank, my magic go go juice and headed over to boot camp and had a killer workout with my amazing fit fam!💖💪 . . If I would have slept in I would have woke up most likely still feeling exhausted but instead I'm energized and ready to tackle today!🙌 . . So get up and get moving today!! I promise you won't and I repeat you WON'T regret it!😘 Have a great Saturday!!💞 . . .
🚗 analogy to explain Over prioritizing Cardio 🏃🏻♀️or Strength training🏋🏻♀️: ⚡️ Motor: cardiovascular health Body of car: skeletal structure ⚡️ Fast motor in a crappy/ weak Body= Over prioritize cardio/ don’t prioritize building your structure = eventually will break down ⚡️ Crappy Motor in a Big/strong body= Over prioritize building a structure, but don’t prioritize the efficiency of the structure your building = eventually will break down 💥 Important to note: Weight training can carry over benefits of cardiovascular health. 💥 Example: you could weight train with lighter weights in a circuit type setting... that is basically Cardio with weights and will be conditioning your cardiovascular health primarily NOT building your skeletal structure ⚡️ BUUUUT traditional long Cardio alone does not do much ...if any ...carry over to improving & build upon your skeletal structure health. ⚡️ Both are important but like I’ve said before BOTH ARE TOOLS and when used properly in the correct ratios for your individual needs... that’s where you see the greatest results! ⚡️ Over Prioritizing one over the other will most likely lead to problems

Beware of the person with All the answers When asking a Personal trainer/ Nutrition coach What’s the best diet What’s the best form of training What’s the right daily routine The Only two words that you should hope to hear is... “It Depends” If someone tells you it depends and your irritated because you just wanted a simple answer... well then go find someone who will take away all your responsibility, create a cookie cutter plan, and count down the months till you give up again cuz it didn’t work YOU are the Answer to your problems A Training Program A certain diet protocol A Personalized habit building routine And a coach that can help put it all together are just TOOLS. Tools that you can choose to use to create certain outcomes The Dieting industry has you believing that they have all the control and that their products are Your solution BUT THAT IS FALSE! YOU ARE YOUR SOLUTION Use Products, Supplements, Dieting protocols, training techniques, etc. to get to your goals.... but don’t think for a second that Their the Game changer.... YOU getting clear on where your at and learning how to properly Use the Tools is the Game Changer 💪🏼 #Beyourownhero
We don’t need more Information! • We need more people Properly Explaining How Nutrition works • And more people Understanding, Comprehending & Applying the 💩 ton of valuable Information that’s already out there!♥️ • Here are a few things That MUST BE considered: • Weight loss does not = fat loss Many lifestyle factors and current body composition can affect how effective these results will be for each individual. • TAKE PICTURES & DONT RELY ON THE SCALE TO MEASURE RESULTS • Some of your biggest changes will NOT show on the Scale • # 1Most effective way to find maintenance Calories: tracking your current daily food/ drink intake for 3 to 7 days minimum to see where your currently at. (We need to determine if you’re currently over or under consuming calories before we can establish how to go about working towards your goals.) • # 2 option (if your inconsistent with your daily food intake) I will calculate a guesstimate maintenance calories & Macros for you to follow. • Some of the Factors that can affect Your TDEE (total daily energy expenditure) Which is your: Maintenance Calories + Daily Activity Are: - Crash Diet history - Your total amount of Lean mass (muscle) - Your total amount of fat mass - Age • I know This all seems like A LOT of work... and it can be at first But aren’t you tired of Guessing and wasting $$$ • Once you get clear on where YOUR body is at.... You will Know how to get Results for a Lifetime 🙂

Friday Fun Fact: Chernophobia is the irrational fear of happiness. Life’s too short to not be happy. I used to complain about the two-day weekend. Now, as an aspiring entrepreneur I virtually have no weekends, yet i never complain about it. I’m spending my time how I want to so the work is worth it. Follow that inner voice and you’ll never become a chernophobe. #liveyoubestlife #community #do #blackownedbusiness #support #socialentrepreneur #business #mentor #mentorship #entrepreneur #letsgetit #socialjustice #agentofchange #nonprofit #networking #network #volunteer #happy #repost #life #socialimpact #strategy
Juuuuus hear me out😏 • ... cuz this is where people who want to get “technical” with what burns more calories confuse a lot of regular people who just want to look and feel good without having to train like an athlete to get and then maintain results • Cardio Does burn more calories than Resistance training DURING the exercise But not necessarily more Calories Overall • Resistance training is literally training your Metabolism to speed up • Which = Burning More Calories even at rest AKA Burn more calories overtime for the long term because your prioritizing building Lean Muscle tissue • Increasing the Lean muscle on your body does so many wonderful things like: improves Bone density, helps balance hormones, can help you utilize sugars (carbs) better by having a more positive response to insulin, and so so much more! :::::::::::::::::: Cardio trains your metabolism to be More Efficient with calories= burn less calories at rest • In my opinion, and I know others would agree, I believe cardio should be used for performance enhancement NOT for weight loss • BOTH Cardio & Resistance training are Important • The Healthy Balance of the two is what is most important for overall health • NOT overdoing one or the other • This is why it is so important to look at your needs as an individual... don’t get swept up in what a FITNESS PROFESSIONAL Does to see Results! • It’s their fuckin job to look like that.... You HAVE to want YOUR BEST BODY • NOT someone else’s or even the body you had in High school • ⚡️Improve on the Present Day YOU! 🏋🏻♀️🏃🏻♀️🚶🏻♀️💃🏻
Today was a rough start to the week. Despite it all, I am happy and healthy, so tomorrow I can start anew. No matter what happen, as long as you understand you are never without you will always succeed. Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship. -Buddha #liveyoubestlife #community #do #blackownedbusiness #support #socialentrepreneur #business #mentor #mentorship #entrepreneur #letsgetit #socialjustice #agentofchange #nonprofit #networking #network #volunteer #happy #repost #life #socialimpact #strategy

Get back on track. It's never to late to start again.
An impromptu training today!! feeling better after an inevitable accident over the weekend on my bike. I am a happy girl today🏊♀️🙏
I think people are scared to ask for help in this space because they think their going to ask dub questions.... Just know the more questions you have the smarter you are!!! Majority of the information out there is complete bullshit or misleading so the fact that you’re confused is completely legitimate please don’t ever be scared to ask a question because all it takes is one question and a legitimate answer to let go of all that confusion & fear
Be strong! Be Present! Be YOU!!
✖️The fear of being viewed as codependent is interfering with your #ability to be your #vulnerable , most loving self. ✖️ . I was in a relationship with this guy who had a horrible habit of reminding me that everything in life is temporary, much like our relationship. (Shoulda picked up on the subtle cues of where things were headed) 🤦🏻♀️ . Nonetheless, because of this repetitive conversation I because extremely scared of being seen as “codependent.” The things I would have normally done if he was a friend I would hold back on. I never told him when I missed him, I never called when I wanted to, and I NEVER let him know I how much I cared. . Clearly all of this manifested into a pretty emotionally cold relationship. I was so scared of being perceived as codependent that I wouldn’t let myself open up and love him. . First off, he clearly wasn’t the right dude for me. Because I shouldn’t have invested time in someone who constantly needed to remind me how temporary I was, talk about needing to #RAISING YOUR #STANDARDS . . Second thing; my fear of being judged stopped me from being who I am. I am the type of woman who would fly across the earth to be there for the people I love. I wouldn’t even allow myself to send this guy a goodnight text... serious conflicting values. . See, our fear of judgement stops us from being our most vulnerable selves. The person you are towards your friends is authentic, loving, selfless and you rarely question if they’ll judge you for being “too soft.” Be that same person in your romantic relationships and I promise you that if it is the right one for you, it will flourish!
I had an accident this weekend on my road bike🚴♂️. I am Okay🙏, quite bruised in many places but despite the accident I remained positive, I finished and accomplished what I went for: 50km ride🤪. I must admit that it happen so quickly that my reaction was uncleat my right shoe of the pedal and "roll" into a fetus position to protect my joints as I was going into the ground. I was lucky to have people by my side, like my husband and friends, but the motorists of this country they do not respect the cyclist and lives on the road. When I was on the floor two cars they even accelerated more and start swearing at me. I got up so fast like if I have springs under my shoes and start crossing the road. I am still in shocked of their behavior but that goes to shows that you have to be vigilant at all times and remain calm. I wasn't going to tell my story but I felt the necessity to tell it, to bring awareness and to always keep vigilance on the roads wherever you are. I love this sport, but I will have to rest for a while until this strain goes away. ❣#lifeexperiece
Create lasting changes in your life!!
For those of you that had to #forgive someone for an apology you never got, I salute you. . . I know that your mom was shitty to you sometimes, I know that you made some decisions because of it that have negatively impacted your life. . . I know that your dad wasn’t always the nicest man and I am sorry that you had to endure his bullshit behavior sometimes. . . I know that your brother was the star of the show and you felt invisible and unheard when your accomplishments weren’t acknowledged. . . I understand how painful it was that your parents chose business meetings over your 8th grade Christmas recital and never showed up to PTA meetings because they were building their company and didn’t want to take time away from that for you. . . I #respect you for showing up for your younger siblings and making them Kraft dinner and wieners for supper because your dad was passed out drunk on the coach and couldn’t be bothered to show up as the parent you needed him to be. . . I can relate to how angry you were when your parents put you in the middle of their divorce and instead of seeking counselling they dumped their emotional baggage onto you. And you never told them NO because you were scared if you did they’d quit loving you. . . I know that some of the people who have hurt you never apologized to you. So, I will say it for them. I am sorry that there are some dark and twisted parts of your past that you still carry around with you today. . . However, I am not fucking sorry for the phenomenal human being that you have grown into despite all of it. . . You’ve survived all of the days you thought you’d never make it through, don’t you dare fucking give up now.
Today is my day, and my new projects and dreams are all coming to reality. Today, I am proud to say Going after all my Dreams and Goals and Going to give the universe best version of myself no matter the times. Started from the bottom and now I Am Here! I am just getting started! #miami #yesicangoldlife #realtor #century21 #1stclassrealty #musician #yes #godislove #god1st #godisgreat #liveyoubestlife #conquer #win #champs #boss
✖️ #Raising your #standards can be scary in the beginning. What if I raise my standards and then I’m left all alone? ✖️ . I hear you babe. But, I’m here to shed some light on this fear of yours. . I know in the beginning when you are trying to take back control of your life it can feel like the floodgates of emotions have opened. . The trick to getting through the overwhelm is to not close the damn gates again! 🌊 . CRACK EM’ WIDE OPEN & LET IT POUR IN. . You can’t change until you hit an emotional threshold. How can you expect to hit that threshold if you water down every shitty thing that you are experiencing? . I’m not telling you to see things worse than what they are, but I am saying you need to be brutally honest with yourself about the shit that’s going on in your life. . When you start being #honest with yourself and letting yourself feel your emotions as they come, you will be able to make new decisions. . When you raise your standards you will leave dead situations and move BOLDLY towards the things that set your soul on fire. . The people, situations and limiting beliefs will all be left behind and you will create more space. . Space for new people! Healthy people! People that love the shit out of you for YOU! . Space for new opportunities that help you grow and make you feel alive! . You will adopt new and empowering beliefs that SERVE your greater purpose. . You’ll quit playing it fucking small. . So, my love, not raising your standards out of fear of being alone isn’t a good enough reason to keep holding yourself back. End of story. Fucking Period.🙅♀️🏻♀️
✖️ Create the space to #practice self love and remove the things that don’t serve your greater #vision . ✖️ . Practice, practice, practice. You gotta practice self love and clearing out space for the things that no longer serve you. . Any good skill you’ve ever acquired in your life came from repetition and focus. You did the damn thing repeatedly until it became second nature, #learning to love yourself is no different. . You don’t just wake up one day and say hey, today's the day my abs are going to reveal themselves. Even though I’ve spent the last month eating drive-thru and binge eating Doritos. . Your self love is no different. You have to practice daily, you have to consciously and deliberately choose things that are in alignment with yourself and your greater #purpose . . Practicing self love falls on a very wide spectrum. (Luckily for you that means more opportunity to get your practice in 😜) . It ranges from choosing to fuel your body with good, nutritional foods. . It’s making the decision to spend time alone when your cup is running low and needs a top up. . It’s the ability to ask the difficult questions and figure out where you stand with someone because you DESERVE mental peace. . It’s standing up for yourself when someone isn’t treating you at the level you deserve. . You cannot get better at something without putting in time and effort to complete the reps. . Today I want you to write down 3 things you are going to do this week for self love. Be specific and schedule it. I know y’all have iPhones & Galaxy’s, so whip out your calendar and make time for yourself. . Comment below 3 things you’re going to do this week that hit your reps for self love. 👇
Don't be afraid to ask for what you want!
✖️Could you imagine waking up one day and realizing that the only thing that held you back from #achieving your wildest dreams was fear of looking stupid? I bet you’d be fucking pissed. ✖️ . How many here have been guilty of not playing full out because you feared looking dumb? . Remember in junior high when you’d sit out in gym class on the sidelines because you didn’t want to look “stupid” in front of everyone playing dodgeball because your aim sucked? . How shitty did you feel watching everyone else have fun while you sat on the bleachers and awkwardly waited until the buzzer rang? . Even more so, how anxious did you use to get when one of your classmates would try and coax you onto the court and your dumbass just sat there and tried to look cool? 😂 (I say this because I was that dumbass) . DUDE, you not going after your #goals & #dreams now is just as ridiculous as being scared to look stupid playing dodgeball back in school was. . Nobody truly cares whether or not you know what you’re doing. People only care about how you make them feel. . If you are showing up in your space as the realest, most authentic version of yourself and your energy says “I’m here to fucking play,” then nobody gives a shit about how “smart” you are. . Who here has an outrageous grade school story to tell me about a time when they held out because of this? Comment down below, let’s have a chuckle. 😂👇
We all have that one #friend in our life that jumps out of one relationship and within 6 months is back in another one. . . Maybe you’re reading this and thinking “shit, I’m that friend.” . . Whether you are or you aren’t it doesn’t really matter. What matters is taking the time to fall in love with yourself and #understand who you truly are. . . You can’t put a price on the beauty that comes with knowing and #LOVING who the fuck you are. . . You need to invest the time in discovering and building yourself. . . Take yourself out for supper alone, go to the movies and enjoy the shit out of it. . . Go ice skating by yourself and rock out to the Mulan theme song. Stay up till 2am coloring a Disney princess book. . . Make time for yourself, start loving yourself. You need to take time and figure out who you are completely untethered from another human being. . . Do you really like fishing? Or did you just like that it made you ex happy? . . Do you really love watching the MMA fights? Or do you prefer to watch 8 Simple Rules reruns? . . Do you really want kids or was it just easier to say you did because you wanted to seem like the “perfect” match? . . Even if you’re in a relationship right now you can still work on #understanding yourself on a deeper level, you don’t have to be single to work on this. . . So, this week I want you to pick 1 night and do something completely by yourself, for yourself. Comment below what you’re going to do! 😊
The choice is yours❣
✖️The inability to speak up for yourself when you’re uncomfortable is holding you back from the life you truly #deserve . ✖️ . When I first started this #journey I remember feeling that gross nausea in my gut whenever I was about to have a challenging conversation. . I will never forgot breaking up with my boyfriend at the time, I nearly puked I was so overwhelmed. . Whenever we hit a peak of anxiety our body has a sympathetic nervous response. . Think of a time when you were super stressed and you either puked, or shit yourself? Yes, that is exactly the response I am talking about. . The reaction is a sign that the emotional intensity we are experiencing needs a release point. . We’ve been taught our whole lives to avoid talking about our feelings, reinforced to believe that if you have nothing nice to say then don’t say anything at all. . However my question is, did the people teaching us this truly understand the liberation that comes from being transparent and open? . What were you told growing up about speaking up for yourself and saying what’s on your mind? Tell me below! 👇
✖️ Self love is like a #magical kitchen and in that kitchen you have access to everything you could possibly want and you’ll never run out of ingredients. ✖️ . I want to imagine that you have this magical kitchen and your favourite food is pizza. 🍕 . You have an abundance of pizza, all the flavours, toppings and crusts you could possibly imagine & you’ll never run out! (Sounds pretty wicked right? 🤤) . Then one day a man knocks on your front door and he brings a pizza for you. . This man tells you that he will give you pizza everyday for the rest of your life as long as you do what he tells you. . You laugh and tell him that you have your own pizza and you don’t need his pizza under his terms and conditions. . K, fucking plot twist. . Now I want you to imagine that your magical kitchen is bare. You have no ingredients and you are starving. There isn’t enough food and you don’t know when the next time you will be able to eat again. . Then one day a man knocks on your front door and he has a pizza for you. . This man tells you that you he will give you pizza everyday for the rest of your life as long as you do what he tells you. . You don’t like it but you agree because you’re hungry AF and you don’t know when the next time you’re going to get food so you do what he tells you. . Go back and reread this story but replace the pizza with self love. . Is your magical kitchen full? Tell me below. If not, it’s time to fill it up! 🍇🍓🍍
View life as a continuous learning experience!!!! Today's training: Swam 1km🏊♀️ ran 8km🏃♀️💦and did some Pilates at home with the ball ⭕
✖️I’ve live the #majority of my life by the concept of jumping off a cliff and miraculously assembling an airplane on the way down. ✖️ . My parents have both openly expressed that my methods often make them cringe. But nonetheless, someway, somehow, I always pull through just in the nic of time. . I operate from a place of taking massive, uncomfortable action. My #decision making process pretty much boils down to one simple question, . “Will this move me closer to what I truly want? Yes or no?” . If the answer is yes, well then buckle the fuck up because shits bout’ to get crazy. If I see something or someone that can get me closer to the direction I want to travel i will do #WHATEVER it takes to make shit happen. . This year alone I have invested over $30k into myself and my business. I found two women that had what I wanted and I hired them. Then I found a second and I damn well hired her too. . The only thing holding you back from your true potential is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself.
✖️You need to heal old wounds so you quit bleeding on the people who didn’t cut you. ✖️ . Shit happens. Life sucks sometimes and people are going to hurt your fancy little feelings. . But that doesn’t give you the right to walk around and hurt people who haven’t done anything to wrong you. (Not that it’s acceptable to hurt anyone regardless) . We can’t keep bringing old pain into new relationships, projecting it onto our partners and expecting a different outcome. . I know that you’re hurting. I know that you struggle to forgive people in your past because you have this weird internal conflict about accountability. . I know that you struggle with the concept of “if I forgive you, then that means I am saying that your behaviour is acceptable, and what you did to me isn’t okay.” . I get it babe. But guess what, carrying around old bullshit is only suppressing you and holding you back from living out your true potential. . The art of forgiving someone isn’t about saying that their behaviour was acceptable, it’s about declaring that you are worthy of inner peace and you don’t have to carry the heavy shit anymore. . If you want to feel lighter you have to be willing to put the heavy stuff down. . I want you to write out a list of the top 5 heaviest memories you keep hauling around with you, and then I want you to march down to the party store and buy 5 helium balloons. . You are going to take those balloons and write out the 5 heaviest memories you have and write • "I FORGIVE YOU AND I FORGIVE MYSELF FOR CARRYING THIS FOR SO LONG.” You are then going to release those balloons into the air and LET THAT SHIT GO. 🎈 . There is something so therapeutic in watching old pain float away. It’s time to let go of old baggage that’s being weighing you down. ✨❤
Empowerment comes when we learn how to respond to our environment rather than react. Every day we are influenced by emotional memories. These subtle prompts, like sounds, sights or even smells, can trigger an emotional response that is out of our control. Become aware of these emotional triggers and their ability to affect the way you feel, bring you back to a past emotion, and hinder your current emotional growth. Through the Empowerment seminar you will learn a process to become aware, disconnect from false beliefs and reconnect to the truth so you become the master of your emotions. This process allows you to choose how you want to feel today and every day. Empower yourself to create powerful relationships, achieve your goals and experience joy in everyday experiences. .

✖️Your morning sets the tone for the rest of your day. Do you prime your day for success? ✖️ . How many here are guilty of rolling over, grabbing their phone and immediately scrollin’ the gram? . You’ve had your eyes opened for all of 5 mins and you’ve already checked emails, text messages, IG notifications and now you’re up and on a mission to get the day rollin’! . Woahhh. You haven’t even had enough time to wake up and simply be grateful for being alive yet and you’re already in a reactive state. . There’s a big hype about creating the perfect morning routine to prime yourself to tackle the day, and the benefits are no joke! . Wouldn’t you feel like a million buckaroos if you RESPONDED to the events of the day instead of REACTING to them? Yeah you would. 🤓 . So, what does a SOLID morning routine consist of? I dunno about others peoples, but I’ll share mine! 1. Wake up & just chill in my bed for 5 mins. I take this time to just be damn grateful that I’m still alive and get the chance to slay another day. 2. Slam 750ml of water before I enjoy a fresh cup of black coffee.🤤 3. Journaling my morning “mind dump.” I take this time to write down any thoughts that are floating around in my mind that might distract me later on in the day. If they’ve come up 2 days in a row then I know it requires my attention and I will make time to address it. 4. Morning workout or walk with my hound. Getting the blood flowing in my body makes me feel AMAZING, also reminds me I’m a beast. 💪 5. Dance party. Legit, I throw headphones in and rock the fuck out. Nothing makes my soul happier than seductively dancing to Spanish music in my bathroom. My new roommate has yet to catch me, but I’m sure he’ll be quite entertained when he does. 😂💃 . The cool thing about morning routines is that you just keep tweaking them until you find the right one for you! . The point is to consciously choose how you feel and set yourself up to be in a calm and responsive state. We tend to navigate life better when we respond and instead of react. . Do you have a morning routine? And if so, what are some of your MUST DO’S to start your day off right? ✨👇

✖️ Scarcity mindset is a real thing and it blinds you from all the beautiful things in your life. ✖️ . Who here’s been guilty of feeling like they never have enough? • never enough time • never enough money • never enough sleep • never enough love . I get it. I used to operate from this place too. Sometimes if I’m not careful I slip back there for a moment, but there’s something I’ve learned about this “scarcity” state; It robs your joy. . When you feel like you don’t have enough time you will frantically pack your schedule full and won’t make time for your loved ones. Which only causes MORE tension and stress in your life. . When you feel like there’s too much month at the end of your money you won’t tip the waitress when she’s done a good job and you’ll over analyze your monthly budget until you’re blue in the face. Money can’t flow when you won’t let it. . When you feel like you’re running behind on sleep and aren’t taking adequate care of your body, it will smack you with a cold and force you to rest. . Whenever you feel like love doesn’t flow freely in your life you become controlling. You begin to give love like it’s a trade. I’ll love you if you love me, and if you don’t then you get none! (How long do you think your relationship would last in this state) . You everything you need and plenty of the things you want. The only difference between the people who are happy and those who aren’t is perspective and gratitude. . Practicing gratitude daily is the cure all for scarcity mindset. Take time every single day and practice being thankful, things will start to shift for you.

✖️ You struggle to ask people where you stand with them because you’re struggling to believe you are worth more than what they are giving you. ✖️ . There is nothing beautiful about lowering your standards to accommodate other people’s indirect communication. . It does not make you needy or codependent to ask someone where you stand with them. . It does not make you a “stage 5 clinger” if you want more out of the relationship than just FWB and casual hookups. . You aren’t “crazy” for wanting a clear answer about where things are at in your relationships. . It does not make you demanding or controlling to want a clear answer about the way someone feels towards you. . You are worth clarity, you are worthy of knowing where you stand with people and the direction your relationship is headed. . Don’t ever let someone convince you otherwise. . Be bold enough to ask the tough questions and even though you might not always like the answers, you will have clarity and babe you’re fucking worthy of it.
✖️ All those “little” things aren’t so little. ✖️ . Remember all those times that you tried to bullshit yourself out of avoiding a difficult conversation? . Your friend did something that hurt your feelings but you shrugged it off because it “wasn’t that big of deal.” Only to turn around and vent to your girlfriend about how she ALWAYS does stuff like this... hmm. 🤔 . Or perhaps you fall into the category of not wanting to bring up the fact your boyfriends always on his phone playing candy crush and it drives you mental. (Even though it makes you feel super insignificant and like he doesn’t value your time together) 🤔 . The problem with not bringing up the “little things” is over time they manifest into bigger problems. They become habits, they become patterns and they become the biggest pain in your ass. . It’s much easier to address and change things when they are small and haven’t had enough time to become a pattern.
Corkscrew assisted with Cadillac Push through bar. Sometimes you need to experiment in a safe manner to find the exercise according to your needs. I needed more lateral rotation after a 70km bike ride 🚴♀️💨and more movement through my hips. 🍑
✖️ People have a knack at making it really easy to feel shitty, and extremely difficult for to feel good about life. ✖️ . Man, do you ever notice how easy it is for you to feel horrible about the events that are happening on a daily basis? . Heading out for coffee with a girlfriend and she’s 10 minutes late and you instantly become hella’ pissed... . Spend the night at your boyfriends place and he doesn’t kiss you goodbye in the morning, all of a sudden you are wicked insecure and saying all kinds of crazy shit in your head? . You’re upset with your parents and when your dad walks away and takes space you feel TOTALLY disrespected? . See, all of these things have one big thing in common... they are your rules for feeling good. . Example #1 : In order for you to feel like someone respects your time they can never be more than 5 minutes late... anything past that is just plain RUDE. . Example #2 : You wanted to be certain that your boyfriend loves and cares for you, and when he didn’t kiss you goodbye, your certainty was gone and it freaked you the F out. . Example #3 : In your mind that if someone respected you, they would NEVER walk away from you in a conversation. So, when your dad took space to avoid fighting with you, you viewed it as disrespectful. . If you want to feel good everyday than you need to structure your rules in a way that makes it really easy for you to feel good, and extremely difficult for you to feel bad. . If your rules require other people to behaviour in a certain way, you’ve already lost.
✖️ Success doesn’t just magically appear from thin air, it’s created from the moments of pushing through when you almost gave up. ✖️ . It’s really easy to quit before you see results. We are hardwired to want immediate gratification and reward for our efforts. . We assume that effort instantly equals reward. That couldn’t be further from the truth! . Yes, with consistent and diligent effort you will eventually get to where you want to be. But that requires you to keep showing up even when you want to quit! . How many times in your life have you been ridiculously close to completing something, only to give up 3ft from the finish line? . When things get hard do you default to laziness and self defeating behaviours or do you push through and hold yourself to a high standard? . Whatever it is right now that you are striving for, keep showing up. Don’t get lazy, don’t start slacking off and only giving it 80%. Keep showing up and giving it your all, I promise your results are coming. . If you want to win, just keep showing up when most people would quit.
Goals and dreams are easier to achieve if you stay in your own lane.....it’s great to admire others achievements and determination and it’s helpful to be open to new ideas and suggestions from others, but it is essential to travel the journey in your own lane....as comparison will get you nowhere but discouraged and it is not your job to travel this road at somebody else’s pace....it’s your journey , your goals and your life and the only thing necessary is to be a little bit better today than yesterday and the only way to do that is to put blinders on, stay in your own lane and run your own race. Always here to help you find the right lane and pace for your race. . . . #fit67yearoldbadass 💃 #yourrace #yourlane #yourjourney #liveyoubestlife
✖️ Do you compare your life to the highlight reel on Instagram? If that’s you, STAAAP IT! ✖️ . Duuuuude. Let’s be real for a moment. No bullshit, just shootin’ straight from the hip. . When YOU personally take a selfie, how many do you take before you find one that you deem as “acceptable”? 🤔 . Would you say somewhere around 20 before you find the “right” one? Is there a chance that the people you idolize on Instagram do the exact same thing too? 🤔 . How many times have you re-recorded your IG story or IGTV before you felt comfortable enough to publish it for the world to see? 🤔 . Or how many times have you rewritten your content before you felt like it flowed nicely and was viewer ready? 🤔 . YOU 👏 ARE 👏 HUMAN. . && all your Instagram idols are too. . Humans have this terrible habit of comparing their chapter 1 to somebody else’s chapter 20. If you spend your time scrolling Instagram only to feel negative and shitty about yourself you need to ask yourself wtf you’re doing. . You do not deserve to put yourself through emotional abuse on a daily basis. You are using Instagram as a tool to emotionally beat yourself up and it’s not cool. . Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat aren’t the problem. The problem is the way you’re using them. . If you have a handful of accounts that you use as a vehicle to feel shitty about yourself you need to unfollow them for awhile. . Those accounts will still be there in a month, take some space and get your mind right.
Mornings surrounded by nature 🏞👣🌾🍃
✖️ How well can you read a room? ✖️ . Your ability to have challenging conversations extends past the breakups, 2 weeks resignation, telling your family you need space, so on and so forth. . It’s in the ability to read energy and when you notice that your friends body language was off when you told her about your promotion at work, and being bold enough to ask her about it. . Not in a judgmental or confrontational way, but in a way that shows genuine concern and love for her and your relationship. Because if you don’t, you’re going to come up with an elaborate story in your mind about how she doesn’t support you... which we both know isn’t true. . You aren’t naive and out of touch with peoples energies. We’ve all walked into a room and felt like we could cut the tension with a knife. Energy exchange is a real thing. You are better at reading a room than you think. .
✖️ Sitting on the sidelines of your life is boring AF, get your ass in the game. ✖️ . People don’t fear time going by for no reason. They fear being in the same place this time next year. . In order to feel a sense of fulfillment we need to feel like we are growing. If we aren’t growing, we are dying. . You can’t expect to change your financial situation if you continue to blow your entire pay check and never pay yourself first. . You won’t be in the best shape of your life if you continue to eat greasy takeout and have 3 refills of Pepsi every time you go for dinner with your girlfriends. . Your relationship is still going to suck this time next year if you continue to prioritize your work and success over quality time with your significant other. . The process of bettering your life requires your active participation. Life isn’t happening “to you”, it’s happening because of you. . If you want a future that lights your shit up and makes you fly out of bed in the morning then you need to PARTICIPATE in creating it. . There is no magical genie 🧞♂️ who’s coming to grant you 3 wishes and improve the quality of your life. That’s on you mate. . So, instead of sitting and sulking about your current stats, write down what you want and map out an action plan. Everything you want is on the other side of execution. . It’s time to get off the sidelines and get in the game. What are you going to do today that’s going to move you forward in the direction you want to travel?
I go to run within nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in tune once more. I find it to be the best way to re-connect with myself, my body, as well as having a good workout.🏃♀️💦✔
“There’s no point in bringing it up, they won’t understand anyways.” . . “It’s not that big of a deal.” . . “I’ll just let it go, it’s not worth the fight.” . . Cool, all of these things sound good in theory. However, how well do they actually work? . . I’m not saying it’s impossible to let things go without bringing them to light, but what is the likelihood that the other person isn’t aware of how they are making you feel? . . Let’s be real for a moment, as much as you’d like to believe that you are the master of self-awareness, chances are you still do things sometimes that rub people the wrong way. . . Is that your fault? Fuck no. You are human. Being human means, you are imperfect, at times impatient, and experience a wide range of human emotions. (which is super badass btw.) . . No matter how hard you try to show up as the best version of yourself there will still be times that someone misinterprets you, or you misinterpret them. . . So, wouldn’t that mean that other people are susceptible to the same thing? . . Your partner might not realize that when he cracks jokes about your indecisiveness that it hurts your feelings. Tell him, if he’s a dude than sure as shit he doesn’t realize that his jokes fuck you up. No offence boys. . . Your mom might not realize that when she asks you if you packed your passport, printed your tickets and confirmed your hotel booking that she makes you feel like a 5-year-old. In her mind she is showing you how much she loves you, in your mind you are irritated AF because you are a grown ass adult who can take care of themselves. . . People aren’t as self-aware as you’d like to think they are. It’s not because they can’t be, it’s not that they don’t try, it’s because we all have different ways of showing our emotions to one another. . . Your hurt feelings aren’t just going to disappear, they will resurface because the triggers will still be there. . . Have the conversations, you might just be pleasantly surprised by the new conclusion and perspective you will gain from it.
✖️ The order you prioritize your values seriously matters. One minor tweak could make the world of difference. ✖️ . If I asked you to write out a list of your top 10 values and then rank them in order of importance, what would be at the top? . Here’s an example: 1.) Success 2.) Health 3.) Honesty 4.) Love 5.) Freedom . On paper this list doesn’t seem to shabby right? Sounds like this person would live a pretty decent life. . However, I want to challenge you to think outside the box for a moment. If you notice the top value is “success” and the second “health.” . There is a good chance that because this person values success before health that they might make choices sometimes that compromise their health in order to achieve success. . I know you’re thinking, “yeah right Nat, it’s not that big of a deal.” . But take into consideration that we are driven by our values and the way these values make us feel. . If feeling successful was the ULTIMATE for you, then absolutely you would compromise your health in order to achieve it. Don’t kid yourself, your brain is a fickle thing. . I want you to write down a list of your values and see if you can find anything that conflicts. When you do this exercise make sure you don’t edit it until afterwards. . First thing is figuring out your current list of values and the order you have them ranked. You can reshuffle them afterwards to set yourself up for success, but first, figure out how you’ve currently been operating. . If you have any questions about this exercise, DM me! I’d love to chat and help you understand it better.

✖️ Tell me what you didn’t receive as a child and I will tell you what you naturally give as an adult. ✖️ . The other day I was chatting with a close friend of mine and we were discussing our values and standards regarding relationships. . Which got us thinking, it’s amazing how all the things we didn’t receive as a child are all the things we give and prioritize as an adult. . Growing up my parents weren’t very thoughtful and at times very narrow minded. I find it interesting now how much I love and appreciate thoughtfulness. But also how it’s very painful when someone isn’t thoughtful towards me. . We all have a tendency to give to others what we never received. Grab a pen and paper and ask yourself the question, . “What didn’t I receive as a child? And what do I give as an adult?” . I’ll share mine first; Two things I give as an adult that I didn’t receive much as a child are, 1.) quality time. 2.) thoughtfulness. . Typically the things we didn’t receive as child were quite painful for us. Stemming from that pain is usually a very distinctive decision to do the opposite. . How many people here have VOWED to themselves that they would NEVER treat their children the same way their parents treated them? Yes, this is EXACTLY what I’m talking about. . Intense emotional pain = key decision. . DM 2 things that you give as an adult that you didn’t get as a child!
We attract people and situations into our lives that force us to grow, to go back and heal the parts of ourselves that are in desperate need of our attention. . . Pain doesn’t show up in your life for no reason, it isn’t there just for the sake of suffering. It shows up to point you towards an area that is underdeveloped and needs some extra TLC. . . Do you ever notice how you keep attracting the fuck boys that don’t give a shit about you? Or, that you always attract women that walk all over you and take advantage of your good nature? . . That chronic theme doesn’t reappear for no reason. It’s the universe's way of providing you with another opportunity to choose differently this time and rectify some old bullshit. . . People always talk about how history repeats itself, yes absolutely, because people don’t address the root of the problem. . . The problem isn’t that all men are assholes, the problem is that you don’t fucking respect yourself and therefore you indirectly show others that they don’t have to respect you either. . . It’s not that all women are inconsiderate and self-centered, you just don’t have standards and put up with shit you know you shouldn’t. . . The relationships you have in your life are a direct reflection of the relationship you have with yourself. . . Until you start loving yourself, demanding more for your life and raising your standards you will continue to attract the same shit into your life. . . You can’t run from yourself, life only mirrors back who you are.
