Learn to sit back and observe. Not everything needs a reaction. ~ Angel Marie
Everything in life can teach you a lesson. You just have to be willing to observe and learn.
The biggest lesson I’ve learned is, It’s Okay. It’s okay for me to be kind to myself. It’s okay to be wrong. It’s okay to be happy. It’s okay to move on.
Strong is in. I love the new shape my muscles have given me. Here’s to getting better with age 😜💪🏻🥂
lmao first training #video
in a while? But song is appropriate haha
Today was just one those days
Bench went 250x3, 255x2 and 265x3+x1. Elbow slid out on the AMRAP and leg drive not existent. Almost got nailed 😂 so 1.5 on the AMRAP
Deads went 440x3, 450x2 and 465x2+x1. Same thing 🤦♂️ first rep clean, second rep I felt the bar move too far away from me and tried to adjust. This caused the knee to unlock which pushed the bar completely away and voila. Positioning seems better and hookgrip will be the death of me one day #fitfam
Other than that, nothing new. Haven’t been 100% focused with training since Olympia but hopefully I’ll get back on track tmr. Not everyday is a good day, but better to work thru them than pack it in and go home
M I N D S E T: You either want it or you don’t want it bad enough.
TRANSPARENCY: I’ve been a little distracted lately and not solely focused on what’s best for me. Woe is me. We are all busy. Some are busier than others, but either way life is moving fast.
Taking breaks is great. Slowing down in life is NECESSARY. 🙏🏻 GIVING UP is NOT an option.🚫 .
Annnd just as this says. If you aren’t working hard towards every goal in life don’t feel sorry for yourself. Speaking to myself to! 🙋♀️ How bad do you want it??? .

The best cereal on the planet is Cinnamon Toast Crunch. @ me in the comments if you disagree. But you won’t because I’m right. That’s what’s on my mind today.
From Facebook to Youtube and everything in between, @bodybuildingcom
releases some really cool video... but have you ever wondered where it all comes from? This guy right here and his team, that's where! @mdoubleday
is a master of his craft, a genuinely great guy, and a part of what makes BBcom great. I had the honor of being interviewed by him this past weekend at the "Ambassador House" for some upcoming content. The guy behind the camera is one of the most overlooked but here's your time to shine, bro! 😉😎
Surprised myself on my deload today. Moved 115lbs so fast after watching @megsquats
YouTube. If you need some motivation go watch her video. Whenever she works with @bodybuildingcom
she makes me tear up . Something about her message not only makes me want to be better for myself; but, makes me want to be better for the sake of everyone watching - and someone else is always watching.
It doesn’t matter if you’re lifting light for a deload week - or maxing out- go through your actions with intentions. Enjoy your lifting, the meals you eat, the time you spend outside. How we carry ourself and react to situations is so important. No matter what level you’re at, someone is usually looking up to you.
Thank you Meg, for always being such a bright light. #buildyourbody #frontsquat #girlswhopowerlift #likegirl #bbcomambassador #strength #pharosathleticclub #powerlifting #uplift

Love isn’t always perfect. It isn’t a fairytale or a storybook. Love is overcoming obstacles, facing challenges, fighting to be together, holding on and never letting go. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define, and impossible to live without. Love is work, but most of all, love is realizing that every hour, every minute, and every second was worth it because we did it together.
Marriage does not make you happy - You make your marriage happy. ~ Les and Leslie Parrott
Love you @cindytrisnadi
Lately I've been extremely focused and motivated to achieve my goals. Going to Olympia really helped me to get my mind right. Like everyone else. I go through ups and downs but I always make sure that when I experience those down moments that I come back and make those ups even higher than ever before. THE THINGS I WANT, I WILL ACHIEVE.
I feel like lately I've been really absent on this app. Ever feel like everything around you is just flying by and you can't seem to have enough hours in the day to do everything you want to accomplish? 🤯That's me lately.
I'm not going to sit here and apologize for not being active on here, because it would be a lie. 🤷🏻♀️Don't get me wrong I do truly love this app for everything and all the opportunities and people I've met from it but honestly... So many things have been going on this week and I'm over here just trying to keep my head on straight through it. With work, and starting school again, and let me tell you.. I am struggling so hard, that's what I get for leaving my most difficult classes for last. Preparing for my best friend's wedding this week, and having our basement torn apart and renovating it all over again. Just wanted stop by and say it's okay. Do you boo boo. What goes on outside in your life is truly more important than what is going on on this app. •

155x3 floor press 🤑 running on muffin pumps this morning 🤓 AND obsessed with my pink clips 😍 never though id say this but bench is by far my favorite lift 😂😂 @coach_p_strength
thanks for da spot as always sir
Tell me how my out of shape ass just pulled the easiest 315lbs single 🤦🏽♀️
I guess comeback szn only needed two days lmao I’m feeling good again 😎
Didn’t want to wear a crop top to the gym but I did because:
1. I was doing chest and I HATE wearing t-shirts or anything else doing it
2. It’s all I have clean (hehe)
3. Getting comfortable being uncomfortable!!
I don’t have anyone to impress at the gym so why am I worried about it?
Self confidence gets to a lot of people but if you take a second to think about it, who cares?! This is good practice to me, wearing something that doesn’t make you very comfortable ya know??
Anyways, happy hump day!! 🐪

Day 2 of Canada’s Strongest Woman went a little better for me that day one! Only zeroed one event 😜 and since I only had one video taken (truck) here are some other pics and videos stolen from my competitors 😘 look for the girl in the Rainbow Bright pants 🌈 including a dumbbell PR 112 pounds💪🏼🖤 .
Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, what’s in it for me?
Rather, we need to accept that we won't always make the right decisions, that we'll screw up royally sometimes--understanding that failure is not the opposite of success; it's part of success
Past couple days been dealing with a head cold just going through the motions working out but today finally felt 100% n destroyed chest/triceps 💪🏼😜 @flexcomics @tuffandtiny @unicornmuscle
Excuse me but is your name Paige?
Being the amateur that I am I asked @paigereilly
if her last name was Hathaway 🙀 and the REAL @paigehathaway
I introduced myself by saying “holy smokes you were GREAT on the @edmylett
podcast! ...but what’s your name again?” My goodness! Face 2 palm.
Both of these gals humored a goof ball like me and we laughed! I’m still laughing at myself smh. *
Great reminder to laugh at ourselves and laugh at others. Forgive and forget fast and easy. And don’t be AFRAID to throw yourself under the bus when getting out of your comfort zone. *
you know, 🤣 you were there...🤫

Eating out is actually healthy!!! What?!?! Not just because you can actually find healthy options at restaurants, but because it is healthy for you mentally! If you are going out to eat with family or friends SOCIALIZING is so incredible important for your mental health! BUT when going out in groups, it is easy to stray from your healthy choices of food and drink! Use eating out as a mental exercise to choose the right thing, control your portions, keep your hands off the chips and dip, and only sip on water! Talk about a mental workout!!! Now, I’m not saying you can NEVER go out and enjoy, but these tips are great fir those of you really working to meet a specific weight/body fat goal! So get out and challenge yourself to eat clean! #mealplan #nutrition #fitness #weightloss #exercise #health #fatloss #eatout #personaltraining #personaltrainer #exercise #food #bbcom #bbcomambassador
