Mindset Monday – I Can Do Hard Things

So today’s workout was a doozy – there weren’t any moves I couldn’t handle, but the pace had me all thrown off. I honestly did feel myself getting frustrated but I stopped myself, took a second to BREATHE, reminded myself I can do hard things, and kept going.

It wasn’t • pretty •, but oftentimes, workouts aren’t, and I was a HOT. MESS. (let’s be fuckin’ honest here, if you still look perfect after a workout, you didn’t work hard enough!)

What matters is it’s {{d o n e!}}

Flex Friday – WHY I flex

In one of my challenge groups today, we were asked to share WHY we flex, and I mean, of course part of it is wanting to show off my hard work (what, just being honest! You know that’s how I roll!), but truthfully, it does go deeper than that.

I am constantly reminded of a time in my life where I couldn’t even carry a small purse or a bag of groceries without spasms, pain, and an overwhelming sense of feeling weak.

This is actually what almost kept me from even beginning to work on myself, but luckily, it didn’t, and I began… and I kept going.

And I don’t feel pain. I don’t suffer spasms. And I DON’T feel weak, and thats powerful! I feel STRONG.

People think our flex pics are us being vain, but if you look deeper, you see there is a LOT more under the surface. Pride. Proof of hard work. Empowerment. The promises we made to ourselves. Emotional journeys. Self love. Self worth.

So much more. It’s more than a flex, that’s definitely the physical aspect of it, but the real power lies in the mental, spiritual and emotional aspects.

I flex because I once felt weak and helpless, now I feel strong and empowered. And that deserves to be celebrated!

Tip Tuesday – Fellow Obsessioners

Tip Tuesday for my fellow Obsessioners!

If you are like me and have super duper ridiculously sensitive skin, and the band moves involving your hands hurts your hands (such as the move in Booty where you pull band up with opposite hand), and gloves didn’t help, wrap a washcloth around the band – provides much more comfort while not so bulky you can’t still get a grip!

Many thanks to my rockstah Success Partner Sara for clueing me into this! 🙂

(New England winter air does not help the sensitive skin!)

Day 2 of 80 Day Obsession, done!

Self Love Saturday!

I can’t be the only one that is always speaking gently and patiently to others, but can never turn that inward and give myself the same gentle patience?

One of the things I want to work on this year includes being nicer in how I talk to myself… it is definitely something I need to work on, so for self love Saturday, this is my focus!

Who is with me?
