A few moves from my workout this morning! 🏋🏼♀️
First up is my absolute favorite move in this entire program!!! It is the sumo squat with a twist. The first time doing this move I did it with 10 lbs and could barely finish the 60 seconds... today I did it with 25 lbs!! 💥 Talk about a whole body workout! 😳 hello, hamstrings, butt checks, abs & arms! 🍑😍
Second is single arm row with 20 lbs the first round and 25 lbs the second round. The first time doing this move I was using 10 lbs dumbbells. 💪🏼
Last but not least is push up with with rows. Now this is a move I really struggle with! I have an extremely hard time doing full push ups... not because of lack of upper body strength but because of a fracture in my lower back. So it's very hard for me to have the proper form and not dip my back like I do during the 3rd push up. So I always do this move on my knees but today was able to get 2 full push ups in with proper form! Ummm HELL YEA I'll celebrate that! 🙌🏼
So what's the point to this? That no matter what anyone tells you... YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU PUT YOUR MIND TOO! I'll never forget the day a doctor told me to cut back on my workouts. To no longer do squats and lunges because of my knees. To no longer do push ups or ab workouts because of the fracture in my back. 😳I remember my exact reaction was "you're freaking kidding me right?!"
Being the stubborn bullheaded chick that I am I walked out of that office that day with a chip on my shoulder and a smile on my face. I knew I wasn't going to do any of that and in fact I was going to push harder and train smarter so my body can do those things. Today I proved that to myself.
You can do hard things! You just have to believe in yourself even when no one else does. I'm always here to help 😘 #workoutmotivation#sumosquats#pushyourself#believeinyourself#stubborn
Don't let anyone undermine your belief in yourself. Ever.
And, if somehow you do (it happens to the best of us) give yourself ample time to heal + rejuvenate and surround yourself with people who believe in you until your faith in yourself is restored. .
In certain things you need to hold on. And that certain thing is YOU! You guarantee YOU! You are your back up, LOOK at You and reassure yourself that come hell or high water you can guarantee within your goal make your mark every time. Never give up on YOU. Your SELF MADE!!!!

I've never been a huge risk taker in life and always envied those that were. In my 40th year I've decided that I want to be more adventurous in life. After all you only get one. #takeachance#bebrave#believeinyourself
At some point in our life, we need to drop all of the negativity and believe in ourselves. We spend so much time doubting, crying, cowering... how long does it take to remember that happiness and success is out there?
It's easy to give up. It's easy to say we'll never make it. It's easy to say life is hard. .
It takes more energy to hate than to love. It takes more energy to constantly commit and give up than to persevere. .
The last few days for me have been rough...really rough! The old me would have quit. The old me would have slipped into an negative headspace and believed I couldn't handle it anymore! The old me would have let the pain win! Not anymore! I know I'm strong and that I can get through this!!! So I'll just keep swimming and eventually it will get a little better! I won't let anything get in the way of my happiness and positivity! 😁
Accept the bumpy roads in life. At the end of the day, they are the ones that lead you to greatness!!! .
