minor illnesses (such as coughs and colds) were the most common reason for sickness absence in 2016, accounting for approximately 34 million days lost (24.8% of the total days lost)
22% of sickness absences are caused by musculoskeletal conditions (including back pain, neck, and upper limb problems)
11.5% of sickness absences were as a result of mental health issues (including stress, depression, anxiety and serious conditions) were the next most common reason for sickness absence, resulting in 15.8 million days lost (11.5%)

Today’s weights workout is ARMS! 💪🏻
How willing are you to consider that your life is the way it is not because of the weight of your circumstances or situations, but rather the weight of self talk that pulls you down?
Lets use laundry as an example. We tell ourselves how much we hate it and don't want to do it, which then we put it off till we are down to our unmatched sucks and no underwear. We then do the laundry while telling ourselves how much we hate it but after it's all done we start to feel accomplished and happy to grab that clean pair of underwear and matching socks in the morning.
Do you see the cycle? What if we didn't have negative self talks to ourselves and did the laundry a few days before? Because not only did we have laundry on list we had other things we were talking ourselves out of or things we really wanted to do but because we put laundry off and we now HAD to do it and stressed ourselves out on getting it done. ..
"I am" is present tense and you are actually in the process of doing the action; "I will" is future tense and although you know you will be doing something, you haven't started yet. So today let's try using "I am" and get rid of that negative self talk that is weighing you down!!!
Lots of thoughts the past few days, so I apologize for the long posts. I’ve read and been asked about the relationship between self-love and seeking better health / physical changes. Many people have said you can’t have both. I don’t agree, & here’s why.
Firstly, I do not believe good, lasting changes come from hate. You cannot hate yourself to positive change. The mental ground work came before I ever decided to seek physical health. I spent years convincing myself that I was undeserving of dressing up, doing my hair, or wearing a swim suit. These thoughts can take years to reverse & they sure as hell didn’t go away from hating myself. I specifically remember seeing the picture on the left and crying for over an hour & didn't do my hair the rest of the trip. I also specifically remember seeing the picture on the right and thinking, "wow, Brooke. You did it. You built this." It was a YEAR after the first picture before I decided to start changing my life physically.
I still stand by the idea that “you can love yourself where you’re at even if you want to change.” Wanting to better yourself doesn’t mean you hate yourself. With this logic, you are saying that because you want your family, friends, child to become better that it’s because you hate them?
I thankfully got to the point where I believed that even though my body wasn’t healthy or happy, I still deserved to fight for myself. It can feel selfish at times, but when you truly believe that you deserve to be happy you start to really fight for it.
Yes, it can come across like some “self-love” promoters are promoting an unhealthy body, but that’s not exactly the case for everyone. Keep in mind, there are some people with medical conditions, taking certain medications, recovering from xyz that may appear unhealthy to society when in reality they are taking INCREDIBLE measures to fight for their health & maybe even their life.
Most of us are out here just trying to do our best. If you want to change, do it but try your hardest to love yourself along the way. Our bodies & physical appearance are ever-changing.
A lot of good can come from working hard & extending a little grace… to yourself & others.

"I need to get my eating on point before I start working out." Have you said or thought that before?
I'm feeling kinda blah this week. I have been eating more processed foods than normal. Snacking more than normal. My body feels bloated. .
What do I do to snap out of it? Get a kickass workout in. Nothing makes me feel like eating well to fuel my body like a good workout.
Give it a try! You can get access to hundreds of at home workouts for less than a trip to Target. 😂 DM me for a two week free trial.
Soooo..... coordination is NOT my thing!
Today's workout required some of this coordination stuff! 👉 So guess what I did...... laughed at myself (seriously - go check out my IG story and you'll see), just kept moving, and ended in a pool of sweat!
It's all about just keeping your movement going! Not about doing it perfectly. Especially when it comes to coordination! Not all of us are so gifted in this area 😂😂
Oh, and Shaun T with hair: my favorite part of today's workout 😂😂 #ilikehimbetterbald
Welcome to my gym.
It took me awhile to realize I didn’t have to be so stubborn. I could be the person that worked out at home and actually liked it. Ok I said it 🤷🏻♀️ #sorrynotsorry
that I’m now in the best shape of my life.
I mean idk about you but Winter is here in Iowa and rolling out of a nice, cozy bed to brave the cold is NOT my fav. It 1000% deterred me from working out in the past, because it was ‘too much work’ to get up, scrape the windows, drive 10-20 minutes depending on the gym, and attend an hour class. Sure I loved the classes, but it wasn’t working for this busy, extremely rando schedule of mine in this season of life.
Raise your hand if you need a new plan 🙋🏻♀️!
And that’s ok to admit! And if you need legit plan- friend, I got you. Don’t just google a random New Years resolution workout calendar and say you’re gonna ‘really try’ this time all by yourself- you know that won’t work! If you commit 20 min in your living room, you can totally level up your life for real this time. Are you gonna watch us or join us...just sayin.
Check out the link in my bio for how you can level up with me in my #transformtribe
⏩SWIPE for full body workout! This has 80 burpees in it holyyyyy💦
You are gonna complete it as fast and controlled as you can! Point is to have no breaks. I have a hate love relationship with this one. It's so quick and effective, but it'll make you sweat so bad😅 If you are crazy you can complete it 2-3 times! If you have any questions just comment or DM me☺️( the +10 normal push ups is if you want to make it harder) // Had to repost and remove the soundtrack to the video AGAIN because of copyright, but I've seen other people have the exact song on their videos and they don't get deleted?! Ughh. So sorry, no audio...

I tried it a new program this morning..
After 20 minutes I was definitely sweating and out of breath..
And even though it was cardio..
I'm gonna give it an A
Maybe that's due to just 20 min
It was Shaun T 😍
Made me feel like it was Christmas
