Once again it’s about prioritizing
I just worked the last 5 days, got up at 5am everyday to get my workouts in, not back in bed until after midnight everyday
Today is one of my two days off for the week and I have to go back in for 10 hours of OT
Before that even happens, @mrs_puck_33
& Connor are going to their 1st #mommyandme
I want to get my #30forthekids
& an arm & core workout in
Get some chicken cooked up to get me through my work day & have for the rest of the weekend
And then there’s the normal morning activities at home with our two crazy dogs
There’s a dozen ways I could’ve made today easier
Do the bare minimum, eat food on the run, skipped the gym..etc etc etc
Or there was one way to make today valuable
I’ve taken the easy road before and while momentarily it may seem like the better option..
Being organized, having a plan, creating value, ensiling discipline, taking care of yourself... all leads to a far easier and more fulfilling lifestyle

Knowing that perfection is but an illusion that feeds our inner self doubt demons, ☯️ I ponder today on the definition of what really defines the “ feeling of BEING successful” , recently I learned from a deep and insightful post from such inspirational woman, Dr Sarah Gottfried. ☯️Her Insights fueled me to ponder on my own definition of success. Through my life’s experiences I feel that the real meaning of Success has changed thus taking a better silhouette through my years and is no longer caught up into how skinny I am, how much income I earn, the title of my academic position, how heavy is my squat , how fast I run 10km run, how many Kung Fu gradings did I pass, how big is the social following OR definitively how much was my scale weight today.☯️As I mature I feel real success comes from the health of my inner-game AND how genuinely I connected with those around me, my kids, my husband , my family, my friends, my clients. ☯️Thus, I find the time with my clients’ consultations becoming timeless as I learn of their beautiful self. I see their inner beauty in each one of them. I feel their position was mine at some point in my life. ☯️My inner game is made of how much self-care, self-compassion, self-challenge, self-forgiveness, self-confidence, self-honesty, self-patience, self- mindset-checks, self-discipline, self-acceptance, I express to myself today. This practice helps flush out any self-limiting and distracting thoughts that naturally pop up to my psyque. “thoughts ... just thoughts”☯️ And despite the current social conditioning of the female body I agree that I our worth is not our weight , I will never be size 8! But I am fulfilled that I can now embrace my healthy , happy self. After nearly 10 years of freedom from a 25 year of disordered body image and eating behavior. I can say for me the real feeling of success is a genuine connection with self, content and at bliss with my healthy body silhouette, I need to nourish it with discipline, healthy physiological and spiritual habits which then deeply fuel love to myself and hence to those who I come into contact with. This defines my success. Let’s dig deep & define yours ☯️❤️☯️
If you want to reach your goals, whether it be to lose 5kgs or create a multi-million dollar business, patience is key. It's not going to happen overnight. All these success stories you read about and see on Instagram didn't happen overnight. There was years of work put in before what you see as "overnight success". Their success started with discipline. Every day, being disciplined in taking positive steps towards their plan.
Closing out my day packing for the vacation. Had a #strong
nutrition day today. Feeling a bit tired this morning, knowing that I needed to be #strongerthanordinary
to win the day, really locked in the macros and pounded the fuel. Beautiful bride @imready4ever
and I took my urban assault vehicle to @ntbofficial
i! Forney today to make sure it was ready to attack the Great Plains! Love NTB and how they always take care of us! While waiting to pick it up, we fueled up on some @whataburger #ketostyle
.....now, Almost ready to call it a night so I can #wakeupearly
before we leave in the morning! Had to split my #5kaday
up this morning due to taking a call for my real job. Got it done anyway. Weekend is here! #gooutside
don’t let the weekend derail you from your goals!
I’ve made progress in the last few months. I’m at my lowest weight in three years. I’m not going to lie, it feels good.
But don’t take the success as it being easy. But discipline outshines the temptation.
I was at Cabela’s the other day. If you’ve never been there, it’s a sporting store with everything men love. Fishing. Boats. Guns.
They also have freshly made fudge. Saltwater taffy. Carmel popcorn... all things that taste and smell good!
I paused for a moment looked at the taffy and thought, “why not”..... I came back to reality, told myself my goals were way more important than the momentary satisfaction I could get from a sweet treat.
I quickly walked away from the area and went on my way.
That discipline is NOT natural. It takes practice. Once, twice.... and keep going until it’s habit.
Trust me when I say, if I can walk away, so can you!
with a 1980’s Ravishing Rick Rude pose!! Saved this verse while reading last night and God sure knew I needed it. Strong week and I Needed to put some W’s up on the scoreboard heading into vacation. Just a reminder to #standfirm
and you will #wintheday
There are times that my #defaultaggressive
personality is a little much and may not be right for all ppl or situations. And that’s ok. Intense times of Chaos require intensity, decisiveness and aggressiveness. Stand firm in your convictions #leanin #presson
Segways into a GREAT sermon that I listened to today by @jentezen
About Honor. Honor God in all we do. When we fail to honor Him, we separate ourselves from Him. But we also must honor our spouses and our authorities
I AM ON VACATION!!!!!!! This is my vacation face and the beginnings of my vacation beard (yea that’s skipping one day shaving). Think I’ll carry a razor so @imready4ever
will not refuse to kiss me. #heynow #mtrushmore
here we come!!!!
