It’s friggin COLD AND WINDY UP HERE!!! Jet lagged as a MO-FO!!! But I wouldn’t miss this opportunity to be in my place of peace. I came up here to look for something. I think I just found it. 😉 I know what I have to do now.
Time to go home.
This photo captures a side of me that I sometimes forget I have. That’s sexuality, and passion. I’m always so busy coming and going, being a mom and a wife, that I lose my Identity. I promised myself that I was going to work on finding myself this year. This picture resembles so much to me.
I’m not afraid to be me anymore, I’m not worried about anything other than following my heart. I want to model and continue my fitness stuff.
Trust me, I’ve been turned down by someone who I really REALLY wanted to work with and I felt bad. I started to feel not good enough and flawed. But then I look at these gorgeous pictures @cwmg took of me that brought out so much natural beauty in me, that I figured it was their loss. Too many other people out there do think I’m good enough. I’m here to represent the 40+ age bracket. We can be every bit as beautiful, and sensuous, and sexy as the next 20/30 something year olds. Don’t give up on your dreams. #dreams#model#goals#dontgiveup#goodenough#nevertooold#45#mom#wife#friend#fighter#lover#passion#desire#fit#fitover40#fitfam#desert#californiaadventure#cantwaittodoitagain#wbffhereicome @alphatrainingprotocols
Pull-ups have been one of my favorites since I realized I could actually do one when I was showing a friend I couldn’t .... haha I was like WOW - WELL I guess I CAN!! #
Then I got obsessed!! #
I made the pull-up bar my second home. I got really strong at them and hit a PR of a 24kg weighted pull-up and 14 tactical Bodyweight pull-ups.
Since reaching those goals I took some time away for other goals and then a surgery and I am ready to get Strong Again!
I mostly write and use my own programs but sometime it is a nice break / change of pace to do something a bit different.
So I am excited to start a friends pull-up program soon!
Even as a coach it is fun to test out other friends and colleagues programs from time to time.
My Friend @meghancallaway is launch her Ultimate Pull-up Program tomorrow, and I can tell you this is an extensive manual that I am excited to dive into and give it a go.
Follow Megan if you wanna know the details of her launch.
#coachkaren 👱🏼♀️#ironmaidenstrengthandfitness#pullups#REFiNE 👈🏼 my new program launching soon.
Happy Monday!!! Today is a new day and a new week. So if you've been struggling or fell off track, don't worry about it... just start back up today! And if you need some extra accountability, my online groups are always open to you! Just message me got join! 💖
Pure joy right there! ☝🏻
Love this picture from our trip to Hawaii a few years ago! Paddle boarding in Hawaii was amazing. It was a trip of a lifetime and I plan on making it back there ASAP!
Life can throw lots of changes and ups and downs at you, but today, I’m choosing #joy and remembering how blessed, loved and grateful I am for moments like this!! #mondaythought#deep#purejoy
