Eats a savoury dinner and then must get something sweet afterwards 🙋♀️ Salted caramel crunch pancakes 🥞 I can’t count how many times we kept saying how good these were 🤤
✖️This massive intense smile I have goin in 😆 is because:
1. I just got my ass WHOOPED doing a 15 minute workout and it felt AWESOME!!!! 😅✊🏼... and...
2. I’m SO DANG EXCITED for the babes who have COMMITTED TO THEMSELVES to do this program with me!!!! 😭❤️🔥👊🏼
I’m also excited to experience this again myself, I’ve been missing the FIRE inside that this program gives me 🔥🔥
Like I said yesterday, IT CHANGES YOU when you commit to something that’s hard!! That pushes you outside what’s comfortable for you!!! That helps you see what you’re TRULY made of, which is SO MUCH MORE than you’ve always believed!!!!
Maybe you’ve lived your whole life keeping yourself comfortable and not doing anything too hard or different because it feels SAFE.
But >>> WHAT IF you decided to JUMP IN and TRY something that’s NEW, something that challenges you, something that helps you GROW as a person!!!?!?
This is what I’m asking you to do for yourself NOW!!! With me!! With our private bootcamp to support you!!! -
We’ll be DONE before Thanksgiving, so NO 🙅🏻♀️ that’s not an excuse, babe 😉😘
This will challenge you, this will PUSH you, this will require you to do things you never thought you could >>> but EVERY TIME you succeed, that FEELING you get is going to rock your world!!! 😭🌎🤘🏼
Are you ready to PROVE YOU CAN do hard things!? Make time for yourself!? Become the BEST version of yourself!?!?
If your answer is yes, then drop some emojis below or DM me!!! You’ll only regret it if you don’t!!! ❤️👇🏼✊🏼

Back in the gym after a week plus away and I’ve learned I may never be the lifter I once was and that’s OKAY.
I’m dealing with an injury and honestly it’s so frustrating to be in pain and be in a place you were once before. It’s defeating because you set goals for your training and enjoy the progression but get set back. I have to reassess my training, again.
Injury aside, I’m learning so much about women’s health and natural ways to heal the body and as a result I feel so good. I’m going to continue to focus on this because not only do I love it but it’s a positive and I can continue to optimize my health, learn to function well and eventually be pain free.✌🏻

You NOT believing in yourself is a tragedy. Stop that shit! 💁😚 We've known each other for over 25 years (holy 🐄 that's a long ass time 😱) and over our lifetime we've both experienced not believing in ourselves. We've experienced being in situations where the task at hand seems so hard that it's nearly impossible to complete. 👈 Keyword there is NEARLY. There is ALWAYS that small possibility that you can make or do ANYTHING. We have been lucky to learn at a very young age that anything is possible BUT you have to work hard for what you want. Whether it was doing a cartwheel, learning a back handspring, making that first kip on the uneven bars, completing a front 1 1/2 on the diving board and not smacking your face on the water, keeping good grades to stay in sports, or even keeping our friendship going for OVER 25 YEARS...we were always taught to give 💯 until we no longer failed. Giving up wasn't EVER an option. Why? Because even if we didn't believe in ourselves, our coaches did. They saw our greatness and pushed us to reach our highest potential. When we doubted ourselves, our coaches were there for SUPPORT and to help us see our true potential. Slowly over time, with small wins, lots of baby steps, and a killer support system, we were able to accomplish the tasks at hand and ultimately learned to believe that we could do anything. 🤗💪 So, I tell you all that to tell you this...I BELIEVE IN YOU! You are capable of so much more and I'm here to help you find your way. If you've tried EVERYTHING and still aren't seeing results, DM ME!!!! One thing I can guarantee you haven't tried is allowing me to be your coach!! ✌️👽 #mothernaturemonday #bossbabes #webelieveinyou
I bet many of you that scroll through Instagram and if you happen to see this you might say "that's easy." If so I challenge you do it. Right.Now. Then come tell me it's easy.....that is all.
you are a rockstar!
You too @ginaperkins33
even if you didn't excel at this🤣😘 #mondaymotivation
Do something today that your future self will thank you for.
I got to spend some time with my brother (aka birthday boy 🎂🎁) & learning about electricity this weekend while helping him wire the tiny home he’s building! He’s so rad, teaching himself how to do everything step by step, jumping new hurdles each day. 🙌💪
Thankful for the BLAH days because they show progress too 🙃. I remember a few years ago when I’d have my not-so-confident days... it could take quite a while to get myself out of a funk. Even though I may have some of the same thoughts or feelings now... healthy thoughts and actions quickly follow and that is HUGE. I’m able to recognize critical, degrading thoughts and be proactive about stopping them and that really does lessen the damage and allow me to get back to ME! Body image is a roller coaster people.. might as well throw your hands up and yell curse words?! Haha.
I have some really exciting things coming up in the near future so until then I’m gonna be patient, enjoy the break and focus on being 100 percent ready to get back at it!
I’ve come to the conclusion that I NEED LIFTERS IN MY LIFE. So this will be our next investment for both of us 🙂 #liftersarelife
When the alarm went off at 4:00am after a typical night of going too late to bed thanks to my six-year-old waking up and needing mommy to hug her tight, I sleepily woke up and rather than lament over how I “had to get up and go train before a super long work day” I instead paused to think how grateful I was to wake up to another day, her loving arms thrown over me...how grateful I was to be healthy and be able to choose to head to the gym to train and work toward my goals...how grateful I was my husband would get the kids up and ready to go to school so that I could start my training a tad later and get it in at the powerlifting gym across town...how grateful I am for my career and the work I am able to do to further a mission I believe in... This is a mindset I always try to channel, and with the morning pause it really stuck with me all day.
This time of early morning reflection, meditation, and gratitude will become part of my routine, before the hustle and bustle of the day starts. Counting my blessings. Every single day.

Today in my fall bootcamp, I asked the ladies to share TEN things they LOVE about themselves. It could be anything from physical to emotional and beyond. Anything!
This happens almost every time I ask it, but a lot of us have trouble coming up with just a few things, let alone ten! That just breaks my heart!
When you grow up hating yourself on the inside, you spend a lot of time trying to fix the outside, or at least have the appearance that everything is “fine.” I’ve spent so many years being the girl who smiled through the pain while looking like her world was magic.
The greatest gift I could ever give to another woman is empowerment. To change from self-loathing to self-loving is simply beautiful and should be celebrated! Even these two pictures are something I never thought I’d share a few years ago.
That smile on the left makes me cringe. There was zero happiness with herself on the inside. The girl on the right? She’s not perfect, heck, she’s got a cute little tummy from stress-eating 😂 (oops)! ___
But I always said I’d share the REAL! And I’m so much happier today, working on my heart and my mind, so that I can shine brighter than ever.
Ps, this was what I wrote for my ten:
2) pretty eyes
3) love to laugh and make others laugh
4) dog mama
5) always working on silencing my inner mean girl with PD
6) my legs are strong AF
7) I’m getting so much better at learning my triggers for anxiety and working to push through
8) I have a strong work ethic
9) my hair is finally growing past my shoulders 🙌🏼
10) I can lip sync like it’s my job
It’s not narcissistic to love yourself from the inside out. Many of us have spent too much time on the other end of the self-love spectrum. Let’s change that! Could YOU think of ten things you love about yourself? #SelfLoveIsMyJam
Big S/O to my homegirl Krys for exceeding her limitations. There is only one way to find out where your stomping ground is when it comes to how much weight you can push and that is to test yourself. Krys has been working out for sometime so stemming from her work ethic I knew she was stronger than what she thought. End result her new PR is about 315pds on the leg press which is like double her weight when she was doing about 135pds normally. I told her stop playing with the weight 👀🤣🤣🤣🤣 Great job Krys. Keep up the great work 💪#workoutmotivation #motivation @rayne1811 #inspire
