I just wanna hold that ram ,, time wait for no man #selflove
We’ve made it through week 2️⃣ and are facing another push-up challenge and upping the difficulty! 🏋🏻♀️.
• Start in plank position, hands wider than shoulder-width.
• Lower down into a push-up, and press back up with core tight. Inhale while lowering and exhale while pushing up. ▶️ Do 8 reps.
• Lower into an elbow plank and hold for 20 seconds.
• Do 7 push-up reps, then hold the elbow plank for 20 seconds. • Do 6 push-up reps, then hold elbow plank for 20 seconds.
• Continue decreasing the number of push-ups until you do just 1 push-up and finish with an elbow plank.
This sounds tough so let’s cheer each other one!!! Use #squattingwithkirst
and tag me so we can find each other 🎉 🎊.

I wear glasses. Well usually I wear contact lenses. But when I get home I often take them out and put on my trusty unstylish glasses. I put them on last night. And when I went to meditate, I sat for a couple minutes before realizing the frames of them were in my field of vision. That’s annoying I thought to myself, they were messing up my “gaze.” I thought to adjust them and then thought, you crazy person why are you wearing your glasses right now? If there’s one time that it’s actually beneficial to have blurry eyesight it’s when you’re meditating and trying to focus inwardly rather than on external sense stimuli. Ha! I took them off. Much better 🧘🏼♀️
Sometimes the things we do that make it harder for ourselves are so painfully obvious we don’t even notice. But if you sit quietly and you ask, what am I doing to make it harder for myself? What am I doing that makes my life worse than it needs to be?The answer will probably come and smack you in the face. And then you just have to decide if you want to do something about it.
Another day, highs and lows, doors closing and others opening. Staying strong keeping busy and making sure we continue to stay focus 💯 on our life goals and YOUR body goals xxxx
If you browse yoga studio timetables rarely do we see options such as Women's Yoga or Men's Yoga listed. In the age of equality do we need gender specific classes?
Yes, yoga offers freedom to everyone, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or religion; but there are times when it can be more effective to teach to men or women only.
Womens-only classes and environments are riding the current wave of female empowerment, Women’s Marches, and #MeToo
offer women of all shapes and abilities a supportive, ego-free environment enabling women to practice uninhibited.
There is definitely a need for a place in our busy lives and competitive society to come back to the beauty of being a woman. More and more women i speak to are hungry for a safe and sacred space to face their personal challenges, to get back in touch with their bodies without worrying about the ever growing to do list, to reconnect with other women who are all facing the same daily juggle of being a woman. A space to say fuck it for an hour, I need this time for me.
Having 'sisters' is so ancient, and yet deeply needed in this present time.
It should go without saying that being pro women doesn't make you anti men. And to be fair, not all women are welcoming and nonjudgmental.
But there is something innately special knowing you are among like-minded sisters in a positive—and creep-free—atmosphere.
Womens yoga starting tonight @ 7pm

Every. Day. I try to allow that space to inspire me and not terrify me. Not easy going to the outside of the comfort zone. But worth it. 💕
isn’t it funny how we can become (more like convince ourselves we are) SO.overwhelming.BUSY 😬
freaking out in our heads saying “I just have zero time right now”😓
but then, sometimes, something serious happens or a loved one needs us,
so we drop everything and take care of it or be there to support as best we can
and somehow, in some crazy way, even though we had to put everything aside to deal with unexpected hardships,
totally throwing off our “oh so busy life”
we were still able to get it all done.🤭
AND (wait, it gets more mind-blowing 🤯)
even if we were never able to get it all done life still went on,
everything worked out...maybe because it wasn’t as important as stressed ourselves about it to be? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don’t let anxiety win and take over your day fam, decided to make it a good day 💛 #CarolinelFranco
In order to model to someone else how to love you, you gotta love you first. So they'll know how to treat you, you gotta be good to you. Your personal standard sets the tone for how others treat you. The love and respect you visibly have for yourself will naturally be reflected back to you. Make time to discover and grow yourself on a much deeper level. Stop wasting time and energy on surface connections. Do your inner work. Dive deeper into yourself and see what kind of person you attract. Everyone in your life is a reflection of where you are. They are there to show you your current state. Don't get upset, get better and start elevating. Thank them and bless them for showing you how to attract better. Everything you want starts with you. The right relationship comes after you have the right relationship with yourself.💛✨ #InnerWork #SelfLove #SelfWorth #Relationship #BestSelf #BestLife #Inspiration #Motivation #Transformation #Empowerment #Wednesday #Wisdom #WednesdayWisdom
I have spent years living in a state of self-doubt and anxiety never quite believing I was capable of all of things I wished to achieve.
This year has been a turning point for me I have made some tough decisions in order to make positive changes in my life. I have finally realised that I am worthy of the love and kindness of others but more importantly from myself. We are often our own worst critic, continuously putting ourselves down, sabotaging the good things in our lives and striving for impossible levels of perfection.
While at times my journey has been an extremely difficult one, every step of the way has been worth it. I am stronger for every struggle I've faced and for every time I've been pushed out of my comfort zone.
Finally the anxiety has lifted and I am totally at peace in myself. I feel a sense of pride at how far I have come and for all I've achieved so far. I know I am still capable of so much more and I will to achieve all that I set out to do.
Life has so much more to offer and I look forward to all of the new experiences that await me.

This is something I am constantly working on. I have always been so self-conscious about what other people think of me. And it's held me back.
I need to realize that if Angela Martin in Scranton, PA, finds my Instagram posts annoying, that's fine. If Meredith Grey from Seattle thinks I talk too much about essential oils, that's fine. If Mary Midwest from two houses down thinks I look like a hot mess, that's fine too. What those other people think of me is their thing, not mine.
If this is something you struggle with too, I want to encourage you to look in the mirror and tell yourself (out loud!), "My opinion is the one that matters."
Though for what it's worth, I think you're pretty awesome 😉
Not that my old ways were bad ways, they were just comfortable ways. My new ways are uncomfortable, my new ways are growth, my new ways are better ✨

It is like groundhog's day over here. 🎯It is dark out.
🐶Petey's head is buried into a pillow giving Momma "moral support" while I exercise. .
💪I am taking 30 minutes to let my mind think of nothing else but myself (fyi it's not selfish to do that)
🍦I am already thinking about my first meal of the day lol I eat all day and think about it as much as I eat🤣🤣 For the next hour after this picture, about 50 thousand things happened at the Luna house: ■showered, washed AND dried my hair
■did my make up (holy moly kids still slept)
■Took my 2 week bootcamp pictures (ummm HOLY freaking cow I cant wait to show u guys later. I showed my group and they r flippin)
■I cooked breakfast for Zach snd Zoey
■Dressed them both
■Packed Zach's backpack
■Made my shake
■Changed Peteys water and gave him ❤
■Dressed myself too 🤣 (kind of important)
But for those 30 minutes, they were mine and it felt good. It set my tone and mood for the day which btw was much needed as my 5 year old woke up a bit grouchy lol
Ground Hogs Day ain't so bad though. Routine creates habits which brings consistency into our lives which brings results we want 😘😘😘 Have a great day
Pho 🍲 always has my heart ❣️
Omega-3 rich Oats for the first meal of the day !
