Second weekend of #radytt1819
in the books and I feel like I need to say something. Perhaps justify my absence from my regularly scheduled life. Try and share the magic of what transpired. The key word being try. This weekend felt like a lifetime, in the best way possible. It started with celebrating a human I respect and admire deeply for her most current accomplishment, then I got to spend the rest of the weekend laughing with her and learning from her. I moved. I cried. I released things I didn’t even know were there. I connected. I gave love and truly felt it reciprocated. I learned. I looked inside and learned about myself. I was given new challenges and opportunities. I laughed. I laughed so fucking much I cried. What did I do this weekend? I lived. Like really truly lived and god damn it feels good. #mykindofhumans #beingthebestme #radlifeisthebestlife #radrebelrising #hollybrokeme #sohummeditationistrippyaf #kirstieismyhero
My vacation is over and now all eyes turn to 2019.
I have been doing a lot of podcasting and researching the last couple of months. One of the greatest things I have taken from this process was the below (these are my notes from what I heard). This will also be at the core of my goals, values and ambitions for 2019.
It starts and ends with with the most simple of statements:
*A man of value brings more to the table than he takes!* If you are unsure of what this means or whether you are achieving this then ask yourself the following 3 questions- ———-1. Have the right motive and intentions don’t keep score!
(are other people better because you are around?) ———-2. Don’t try and be something your not! Stick to your strengths!
(are you using your gifts and talents to help others?) ———-3. Knowledge is NOT power without application!
(are you going out and applying your skills?)

Post Assault, no make up, in comfies selfie rocking a t-shirt that I was given by an awesome friend a couple of years ago.... After a day of my ears burning, obviously being talked about and being judged I have decided to celebrate being ME tonight. I am who I am, I'm not ashamed of who I am and I am rising above #iamwhoiam #beingthebestme #betheexample
Doesn’t matter where I am. I have zero #excuses
Yesterday, we were up at 4:30am and were at the ball field until almost 10pm. I don’t think I said “I’m so tired” once. Fell asleep around 12:30am and popped right up around 5:50am. Slept ok, for a hotel bed. But I feel good. And it doesn’t get any easier than this! 2 capsules. A #yummy
drink. 1 #patch
. That’s it, ALL DAY!! No more #tired
... you get the drift. Super smooth and freaking #DELICIOUS
!! Have water, can #THRIVE

Your fitness is 100% mental. Your body won't go where your mind doesn't push it!
Did I feel like working out? Absolutely not! I knew I needed to! So I got off my butt and got it done. I knew if I moved my body I would feel better! And guess what I do! It felt so good to just get it done!
2.5lbs lost ,,, that's now 4st lighter than when I started on my #weightlossjourney
2 yrs ago,, I have been slightly lighter in the past 2 yrs, but sometimes stuff just gets in the way of your journey, the main thing is to stay with it, through all the ups and downs. 56lbs now gone forever, I have no intention of putting them back on,, next goal is to get to 12.7lbs #babysteps #minigoals

Something not many people speak about after weight loss/before weight loss! So let’s touch on body dysmorphia, so before I started my journey I never thought I was too big, 101kgs didn’t really phase me as photos I would see of myself I would always try to make myself look smaller, wear clothes that were slimming and get the good angles, now fast forward 8 months at 72kgs there has been moments i still feel 101kgs! it’s fascinating how every mind is so different and how it changes with weight loss life ect, I just wanted to say if you’ve lost weight and your struggling with body dysmorphia remember how much work you’ve put in and let yourself mentally catch up to your body, no matter your weight, size, shape. your body is your shell and it deserves to be loved just as much as your soul. Please practice self love along your journey or whatever stage of life your at, there’s no love like self love! ❤️✨🙌🏼 #weightloss #selflove #bodydysmorphia #loveyourshell #loveyourself #losingfat #fatloss #findingmyself #yourworthit #losingweight #beingthebestme
How many times does the end of the year creap up on us and we say next year. We start out doing amazing, and then we fall or we never start, we just keep saying next month I will start ! And then before you know it another year has passed us by 🤦♀️ I know, I was this person, I was even this person this year ! 😮
I started in February and I fell off in April, but I picked myself up and brushed off the dirt and started again in July. With the help of my support group, I am going stronger than ever ! 😍
You may ask what is a support group? 🤔Let me share with you friends what it is !! 😀😀 A support/challenge group keeps you motivated, keeps you on track. You share your good days and you share your bad days, and before you know it friendships are formed and it helps to keep you going even when the task feels like you are climbing a mountain!
So why not change "the next year" mentality, why not start now, today, this month, this year !! You don't have to wait until next year to start reaching for your goals. Don't let another year pass you by!! (Prep week starts 11/19, bootcamp kicks off 11/26)

You are a mthf’n badass!🌟 Yaaasss! 🙌 Currently diving into a new read, and super excited to see what takeaways I get from it! 🤓 Anyone ever read this before? Any suggestions on what I should read after I get done? 🥰
BTW—something I reeeallyy love about my tribe, this amazing team of women that I have found myself in ✨ is they are allll about self-love, growth and development. 💖 Gotta be the best YOU before you can help others, am I right!?!👭 I love that we all support each other and encourage each other along in our health and wellness journeys. 💗
Something I’ve learned about myself is that I’m a person that desperately needs community, and fraaaannndss!👯♀️ I function better when I know I have support and accountability. People who will just be there for me, ya know?! ☺️ And that’s what I love about this community, is they ALWAYS have my back💕 Is this something you need, too?! You can always join us! 😘
While mommin, payin bills, and trying to keep the kids out of dad’s office so he can work this morning...I can’t help but be grateful at the fact that I am EXACTLY where I’m supposed to be right now 💗
Life is nuts. It’s supposed to be. But do you ever stop and just think “Is this real life?! Damn, I’m lucky”
I mean, really. I get to stay at home with my husband and kids 90% of the week, while still earning an income. And that income literally comes from living a healthier life 🙀By incorporating good old fashioned exercise and nutrition into my daily routine.. no empty promises, no quick fix or magic pill. Just living better!! AND I’ve been fortunate enough to help so many of my friends live more healthy and HAPPY 🙌🏼🙌🏼 Are you kidding me?! How can I not say “Damn, I’m lucky”
Do you want to learn more about what I do? Or how I can help you kickstart your own journey?? Leave a 💁🏼♀️ below.
I promise you- if you want something bad enough, you can make it happen 😘
Dealing with the inner struggles that we all have and trying to find peace within ourselves & about ourselves.
It’s a song about self evaluation and trying just to be better.
We all go through things in our lives, some we’re proud of, some were not.
I think it’s about growing up, physically and spiritually, moving Foward and being a better person.
If you think about it everybody’s trying to move Foward and trying to make it better then before.
There’s things that happen and you just have to put it in God’s hands and it’s gonna to come out, like it’s gonna come out. The song talks about,
Riding those waves that you can’t control (life) this is a song about a personally journey and you can look at it as a spiritual journey.
Somedays all you can do is breathe in and breathe out, pray, move Foward and know that in the end it’s all in God’s hands. We are here to witness, to help, to succeed, to show love, to serve others, to be a better person. To build a “Better Boat.” #ilovethislife #embraceyou #embracelife #beingthebestme #pressingfoward #pressfoward #caneschallenge #abetterme #whatawonderfulworld #breathin #breathout
I felt really good today, better than I have in a long time! 🏃🏽♀️ I went out on a run with the intention of running a 3 mile loop, but when I got to the turn for the loop, I kept going instead. I ran for awhile and then decided to turn around. My easy 3 miles turned into an easy 5 and it felt SO GOOD. It wasn’t forced, I wasn’t hurting, my stride wasn’t shuffling, I wasn’t thinking about anyone else around me.
I felt happy, I felt energized, I felt like I could keep going. I had fun.
But most importantly;
I fell in love with running again today. •
Over the last few years, since I began struggling with running, and actually enjoying it, and honestly quitting it. I’ve learned that something you are passionate about, that you enjoy, DOES NOT define you. •
I’m not just a runner. I’m not just a health and wellness coach. I’m not just a friend or a girlfriend or a sister or a daughter. •
I am ME and that is more than enough. •
You are more than enough. 💙

Tonight I am really connecting with everything on this post. For me it really isn't about finding yourself it's truly about creating yourself. Lovely message here. Repost from @tinybuddhaofficial
