I’m just gonna dish out some tough love here: STOP wishing for it and START working for it.
I can barely count how many messages I get that begin with “I wish I was as XYZ as you…” and while it’s flattering, it also makes me feel like people might not realize that if I’m eating well, it’s BECAUSE I prep. If I’m having a healthy pregnancy, it’s BECAUSE I’m moving my body to the degree with which I’m able.
I’m not WISHING for it, I’m WORKING for it, because that, and ONLY that, is how you attain what you are aiming for.
Stop exerting energy on wishes, realize you are WORTH the efforts, and channel your energy into that – you will get MUCH further, I promise.
As always, if you need help, I got you! You are more capable than you think, but you gotta begin!
Yes, you see me show up.
You see me work for it.
If you pay attention, you also see me struggle. I’m transparent, I own my struggles, as they are part of my story and what gives me strength.
What you don’t see is the water breaks, the catch-my-breath breaks, the incredulous “you want me to do WHAT, Shaun?!” looks…
Yes, sometimes these add up to minutes… but 15 minutes of movement is better than 0 minutes.
So do what you gotta do. Take your breaks. Catch your breath. It’s all part of it…
But keep going. Pausing is NOT the same as stopping.
There are so many reasons I work out; so many reasons I CHOOSE to MOVE my body.
Dealing with life and the ups and downs is definitely one of them – if you ask anyone close to me, they will tell you that moving my body has been my preferred method of stress relief for almost 6 years now.
It’s free; it doesn’t come with a sizable credit card bill the next month, it doesn’t come with a hangover…
There are so many facets of life that are gonna come at you, test you, and try to break you.
Your job? Don’t let them!
•It’s all up to you•
Yes, you could choose to see that as SCARY, as terrifying, as intimidating…
Or you can see it as EMPOWERING, as inspiration, you can see it as liberating and you can CHOOSE to show up.
You have everything you need to do it WITHIN you.
And I have everything you need to SUCCEED – support, accountability, tips, recipes, prize opportunities, access to meal plans and workouts, and a fun, uplifting group of badass ladies with good vibes and an excellent sense of humor!
So if you are tired of seeing it as SCARY and you are ready to feel EMPOWERED, what are you waiting for?! Let’s rock it together!
We can DO hard things 💕
“What’s the secret sauce?!”
The secret sauce is getting off your ass and working towards what you want; step by step, consistently, through the hard times and the easier times.
That’s it, that’s the secret and the sauce. WORK FOR IT!
A little later than usual (by like, 8 hours haha), but first workout of 2019 is in the books!
For me, today is like the ultimate Monday – can’t skip the first day of the year, because what kinda tone does that set?
Not judging anyone who doesn’t workout today, but for me personally, it was important to set the right tone and get it done!
Happy new year!
Gamedaaaaay! But first, we slay!
Workout done, GO BLUE! 💙💛
Love is when your husband gets up at an ungodly hour to turn the electric fireplace on so the room you workout in will be a little warmer for when you begin 😍 (we still have no heat and we don’t leave the electric fireplace on while we sleep!)
Look, far be it from me to take away any meaning from the huge, grandiose gestures… but for me personally, it’s those small but SUPER meaningful things that matter MOST and remind me exactly why he’s my person 💕
