Saturday Strong – Nevertheless She Persisted

Everyone has hardships.
Everyone has obstacles.
Everyone has bad days.

That’s part of life… those not-so-good things {{hopefully}} make you appreciate the good things even more.

Those things only define you if you •let• them.

I’m no different. I’ve faced hard stuff. I’ve scaled obstacles. And I sure as shit have had bad days.

I do not let them define me.

No way am I letting a little not-so-good override lots of good.

‘Nevertheless, she persisted.’

Is that you? 💕

Saturday Sweat – Earlier Than Usual!

You thought our normal workout time was early?!

What’s a girl to do when her accountabilibuddy is going off the grid for two weeks to enjoy her vacation with family and disconnect a bit?

Well if you are me, you soak up one last Saturday zoom workout together at the ripe hour of 0330!

So while I’m super sad we will go from talking all day and night on multiple platforms to barely talking at all due to no service, I’m so happy she’ll get some super quality time with her fam – and I’ll miss her!

Saturday sweat in the books – who’s getting their sweat on today?!

Saturday Sweat!

By 0730 I’d already gotten a run in and done a 47 minute booty workout. My little legs are TOAST! But I’m glad I got some mileage in – it’s a nice running day, not scorching hot!

Now to run some errands, prep some thangs and then for the rest of the day you can find me celebrating this amazing country with amazing people.

(And if I don’t get up to greet you it’s because like I said, my little legs are DONE, haha)

What are you up to today?

Saturday Sweat – Rise Above

Tired due to two sleepless nights.
Sore due to a heavy leg day yesterday.
And even kinda uninspired since my Saturday workout buddy is currently outta commission nursing a booboo.

Still did it. Still not sorry.

If you let it, life and it’s challenges will become one giant excuse not to do the important things.

The power lies within YOU to do it anyways!

Who’s sweating today? MMA Kick Butt had me drenched!

Success Tip Saturday – Mistakes and Mishaps

The “bad”: mistakes and mishaps are bound to happen. No one manages to avoid them forever. It’s a necessary part of success.

But… the good: if you accept the inevitable, and accept that they will happen, you are a little better equipped to handle them, weaving them into your journey, instead of letting them unravel it.

Make it part of the journey, ride ’em out, and take a lesson from them!

Saturday Sips – Gingerbread Latte

Having company? Headed to a party? How about a seasonal drink?!

  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp molasses – blackstrap or regular
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp strong coffee
  • 1 cup milk of choice – almond milk, coconut milk, etc.
  • Sweetener of choice, to taste

Mix everything together in a small pot or in a mug. Then heat until desired temperature is reached. (Alternatively, if you want a foamy latte: Mix spices into coffee. In a big measuring cup, heat or microwave the milk until foamy. Then pour the milk into the coffee mixture.)
