The harder you work for something, the greater you’ll feel when you achieve it!
It’s still crazy to me that I get to help people for living, love every second of it, and get some unbelievable perks along the way! I never imagined that the next vacation I would be counting down for would be a 5 night PAID Caribbean Cruise! The best part? I’m bringing along my sister to enjoy it with me! 👯♀️ Now to decide on which drink package to get 🤪 (that’s paid for too)! 🙌🏻
I stumbled through some old(er) folders on my computer today - things I did when I was trying to start my business; all the effort I poured into stuff that went nowhere. It made me sad and happy, nostalgic and so grateful to not be in that same place. And then, for some reason, I had this quote saved in that same folder. It was overwhelming how much it relayed exactly how I was feeling in that moment. So, if you feel like you aren't getting where you want to be fast enough, maybe take a quick look back to where you began and realize how far you've come.

Quote of the month: When life gives you lemons, make orange juice and leave the world wondering how you did it. #makingshithappen
I did not want to do this tonight!
Tonight was a night were I ran on inspiration for my motivation to get this done!
If it weren’t for my group I would not be able to be as consistent as I am with my workouts. Each day we post our after workout selfies to our private group, which makes me feel obligated to post mine.
There is a mom who works full time and has 3 kiddos with only 1 is in school. She comes home makes dinner for her family and then heads downstairs LATE AT NIGHT and makes this happen! She will on some nights post her selfie at 8:30-9:00 at night!
If I didn’t have these ladies to show up for then I would have quit 2yrs and 11 months ago!
My group has been the key to my success!
🤡 Hump Day, Bump Day
Yesterday was legs 🦵🏼 ... again. Ugh! BUT, I had a great workout and loving my new programming. Last leg day I was sore for 5 days. 🤷🏼♀️ Lets see what happens this time!
⏪ SWIPE left to see pause squats in action. My legs get weak REALLY fast if I don’t train them OFTEN. BUT, they also get really strong when I do train them often. BUT, they never get big. 🙄 Video is 115lbs, next set I managed 125lbs. Of course the pause gets me, but form and angle of my back with NO tailbone tucking was on point. Also, I’d like to point out how nice my arms and shoulders look doing squats. 🤣
I have this skewed visual of myself right now. Post competition feels, if you will. I ‘feel’ fat. I ‘feel’ fluffy. I’m still staying within 2.5 lbs of my stage weight (4.5 weeks post competition) even though I am carb cycling. Two high days and one low day. High days I’m hitting just over 2,300 calories. It’s a damn struggle... this ‘fat’ feeling! Funny thing is, in person, in the mirror I don’t see my muscles. In photos, yes. I’ve gotten 5 compliments on my arms this week so that helps flick away the little ‘you’re getting fat’ demon on my shoulder.
Post competition feels are real! I had said before I’ll be doing an IG Story, maybe IG TV, or some shit about competition feels... before, in it and after. I’ll post ahead of time when it’s coming. Trying to decide if I want to do it live, or not.

You have to push even when you don’t want to.
IT WONT BE EASY. I will not lie to you. The idea is easy..waking up early, working out, listening to positive affirmations, journaling, drinking water, eating a balanced breakfast, etc. it’s all GREAT when you think of it. Shit I wrote down my morning routine and plastered it up on my desk. I spent time deciding how long each action would take me to the minute so it was perfectly planned out. I used fancy markers and that was the prettiest damn planned out routine list I had ever seen.
But the hard part is DOING. You need a tribe. You need support. You need some type of accountability to get your ass up in the morning!
YOU NEED A PLAN. “Hope is not a strategy.” You can’t wish your body to magically wake up and make shit happen for you. -
Come on girl, you know that. Let’s make a plan. Let’s get you started on the right foot here. I have a lot of fun and new things planned for my coach team this year. -
New trainings, lunch dates and the love and support you need to help you along the way. I want to H E L P you.
Message me, comment or simply go to the link in my bio and fill out the Commit, Climb and Conquer form.
We will tackle and conquer like never before!
Moving sucks even if it is in a 5 mile radius of where you are currently. Despite my GF & both kids having the flu ALL of you kicked ass in helping Daddy & I love all of you!!! Now to find our next home & make memories to last a life time!!! ❌⭕💜#teamlama #daddygotthis #love #family #makingshithappen

👓 Seeing @shelace_ifbbpro
‘s post this morning reminded me of this one.
😮 My 5 MONTH transformation gets ME straight in the feels! ✨
Left: May 1st - 129.6 lbs
Right: Sept 29th - 123.6 lbs
That’s 4 months 29 days between the two.
Do NOT hyper focus on the scale! In fact, you shouldn’t even bother with one in my opinion UNLESS you are signed on with a coach for lifestyle or competing reasons. The scale is our business and for guidance. Nearly every client that comes to me says “I want to weigh X amount!”. Usually my answer is “No, you don’t.” Because they have a false sense of WHAT that weight REALLY is!
👉🏼I think the three reasons people fail on their plan to get in shape are:
1. Dwelling on the scale. When you don’t see the numbers YOU want to see, you give up.
2. Inability to think outside the box with your food and you get bored. Food is like art... endless possibilities if you allow yourself to experiment mixing different foods. You’d be surprised with what you come up with!
3. I’d like to say lazy, but it’s that it’s just not your time. Your mind has GOT to be in the game no matter what or you’ll fail every damn time.

Today I overheard a friend of mine suggesting to a newer yoga teacher that she record one of her classes and offer herself feedback. I stepped into the conversation and admitted, “I’ve literally never done that in all the years that I’ve been teaching.” Maybe it’s because I don’t like the sound of my own voice or I’m too self-critical or that even the thought of it makes my heart race. It got me thinking though... I’ve been filming my practice and posting it here for years but you guys have never heard me teach! So I’m putting this out there- this is soon to change. Some guided flows, meditations, teaching tips, and more. It’s all happening. Soon. Very soon. 🥑 #yoga #manifesting #makingshithappen
I’m so desperately torn in my soul between the mountains and the beach. I used to claim MOUNTAINS all the way, that was when I lived near the beach, and now.....I just NEED both. I mean come on look at this view!
I recently found an account online called @seasalt.and.evergreens
. Hello. Perfect, right? And of course she’s in the PNW, where I constantly say I belong. 😆 (Her images are stunning also, check her out.)
For now, I offer you Breckenridge.

I’ve been meaning to take a pic with my #tellyaward
for months! The Birdhouse’s production of ‘Trial by Fire’ won a Telly Award for 2017 for the “Streaming Show - Sports” Category. I was the Associate Producer of the show. 😁 #winning #frontsighttv
When was the last time you told somebody close in your life you were grateful for them, appreciated them, or loved them? To be honest I think best friends get overlooked sometimes. As much as I try to show my gratitude and love on a regular basis, it sometimes doesn’t seem like enough. This girl right here continues to amaze me, support me and encourage me even when the going gets tough. She gives me space when I need it, gets my ass to the gym when I’m not motivated, and constantly reminds me that I’m loved 💗 I used to think being popular and having a huge group of friends was what it was all about. But what I’ve learnt over the past few years is that I want to be choosing quality over quantity when it comes to my friend group. The people who I give my time and energy to always have my back... and I have theirs. I’ve done SO much personal growth over the past 2-3 years - and so has my bestie. People that met us a few years ago likely wouldn’t recognize the people that we are now 🤣 We’ve grown together, on our own and are still shaping ourselves into the best versions of us on the daily. Through the good times and the bad times this chick has never left my side and I think there is something to say about that. If you have somebody in your life right now who has loved you through the highs and lows, called you out on your shit, pushed you to stay strong and forced you to dream bigger... consider yourself lucky. Rachel my girl I am beyond blessed to have you in my life 💗 you are one of the most amazing people I have ever met and I am so lucky to do life with you! You are selfless, thoughtful, kind, practical and hilarious. You are beautiful, strong, adventurous, and bold. I am grateful to have you in my life, and I am grateful for all you do for me 💗
A little reflection on this year. Hitting 50 has been interesting and fun. I've come far in this exciting world! Having grown up with the concept that if you're pretty and young everything will come easier to you. But what they dont tell you is growing up dirt poor it does not. I've had to work very hard for everything I've accomplished. No one has handed me anything but an opportunity. A chance to do something cool, but I had to still work my butt off. Paper route at 12, modeling at 15. Traveling Europe modeling at 18. Putting myself through college and working at the same job for 17 years! Supporting my husband while he grew his business and being the mom to two kiddos who are now beautiful smart talented teenagers. Hubby is now very successful in his work and I'm so happy and proud of him! So if you see me happy and content, you will know why. I'm doing what I love. So go for that goal and work your tail off to get it. Do not care that people may judge or tell you that it's impossible. Or that you're too old to reinvent yourself. (Started two new careers at 48!) And never be embarrassed to try new things. You only live once. No regrets. ♥️

How many times have you heard your gut and ignored it, only to realize it was right?
Some of the hardest times in my life have come when I’ve ignored my instincts.
We ignore them out of fear. Fear because what our gut is telling us is often pushing us to something unfamiliar. So, we ignore it and stay locked in our nice cozy comfort zone.
When I star really listening to what my gut was telling me, it opened up so many wonderful things! Does it challenge me? Yes, do push myself to new limits. Is it scary? HELL YES!!! But is it worth it? ABSOLUTELY!!!!!!! #trustyourgut
