As promised, my fortnightly grocery shop (food only) ☺️🛒 As you can see, there are some treats in here (no sugar coke, diet ginger beer, chips) but for the most part, the food I buy is whole foods. 🍊🍉🍍🥦🥑🍅🥕🥔🥩🍖🧀🥛I love cooking, so preparing a meal with whole ingredients instead of prepacked, processed products is something I don’t shy away from. Mostly I shop at @colessupermarkets or @woolworths_au, however, I buy all my fruit and veg from @lawntoncountrymarkets.

Are you ready??? The @houstontexans Kids Triathlon is in 5 weeks!!! Endurance is key. Be prepared: www.swimwithmarlena.com “Swim Training Crucial-
Swimming is the most dangerous stage of a triathlon for kids and adults. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that that triathlons for kids should limit the distance of the swim stage to 50 yards for ages 6 to 8 and max out at 300 yards for ages 12 to 15. If your child can't swim more than a short distance, triathlete coach Matt Russ at The Sport Factory recommends beginning swim lessons as the best training program. For kids who can swim proficiently, getting them into an organized swimming program is an excellent way to prepare for a triathlon. Swimming, a low-impact activity, is a great way for kids to get in shape, and it doesn't put as much stress on a child's body as running.”
Mine + hers♡ multivitamins are NOT overrated and it does matter which one you take. I can tell you a million reasons why mine is the best so if you wanna know, ask. 😘 I LOVE that Rylee thinks it’s candy, it has no added sugar & is a vitamin/probiotic in one 🙌🏼 Filling in her nutrient gap + providing her with good gut health is one of the best things I can do for my babes (after teaching them about Jesus and to love people 😉). If you want to set your fam up with these this month I have a discount for you 💛🌱☀️🐰
Kneeling side kicks is one of those exercises that is way harder than you would ever imagine it to be. What burns more, your kneeling leg/glute/hip or your moving leg? 🤔 It’s one of those exercises that I love to teach because it works muscles we don’t use on a daily basis. We have a tendency to crouch our shoulders forward because we are so hyper-focused on our working leg. I like to cue my clients by telling them that I have a puppet string holding their elbow so it points straight up to the ceiling which automatically organizes their torso, opens their chest, and stabilizes their core to better support their working leg. Before making them switch to the other leg, I like having them do a cat-cow stretch using the push-thru bar facing the tower. But inevitably they groan when they realize they still have the other leg to do! 🤣 #sorrynotsorry#hurtsogood • #caryleefitness
Pilates Teaser! This famous pilates ab mat workout is a fantastic high-intensity exercise that strengthens the hip flexors and the abdominal muscles. You have the option to keep your head down at the beginning and slowly build up to the full pilates teaser position. (Always be sure if you have any back issues, scoliosis or osteoporosis to contact your doctor to make sure it's safe for you) #abs#fullbodyworkout#pilates#teaser#tone#tighten#balancedbody#pilatesmatwork#marchmatness *LINK IN BIO*
#healingwithpilates 58 Power Move, Progressions with @zaynagold and @functionfabulous I was tagged by @zfpilates to share my Pilates progressions, but I let me negativity and self doubt get the best of me! 😔Ever train a client and ask them to do an exercise you know will benefit them, help them feel empowered only to hear them say, “No Way! I’m not doin’ that!” That was me, yesterday 🤷🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️. Remembering the first time I did Rocking on the mat. It was horrible! I didn’t care for it and thought I’d never do it again! But ☝🏻then I remembered a certain variation/modification I was given by one of our #healingwithpilates hosts, @zaynagold in my Mat 2 training course with #balancedbody . It was definitely achievable for me! I felt so empowered 🙌🏻 my Single leg rocker is a variation of what Zayna gave me! Still super challenging 💪🏻. The second variation was my fav! Utilizing my arms with ⭕️ to help with the extension! Then my variation of full #pilatesrocking with the magic circle ⭕️ I also used a ball between my knees to keep from compression into my SI joint. Instructions for each variation follows:
⭕️Get into position for single leg kicks. Reach same arm as leg. Circle arm around and grab onto the top of the foot, pushing top of the foot into your hand while opening the chest and lifting through your 👑. Repeat of other side ⭕️Rocking prep w/magic circle: bend knees in, heels to the glutes and place the ring and the top of the feet. Press the feet into the ring, lifting head and chest into slight extension, arms lengthen. Bend elbows and gently pull the heels into the glutes 🍑. Press the tops of the feet into the ring, just until the arms are straight. Repeat 2-3 more times ⭕️Finally, Rocking with magic circle and small ball (optional): Bend heels into glutes, place ring on tops of feet. Inhale and Press feet into the ring, lifting head and chest into extension. Exhale to rock forward, keeping neck inline with the spine. Thanks @zfpilates For believing in me👏🏻😘🤗. #inspireeachother#negativitygetsyounowhere#youonlyfailifyoufailtotry#pilatesextension#homeworkout#pilateswithprops#iamwonderfullymade
one of my favorite ways to attack arms in straps/lat press/arm circles is lightening the spring (1 blue) and doing it unilaterally- you have to work much harder to stabilize and it keeps things interesting! don’t let your carriage move as you change your arm position laterally (side to ceiling or ceiling to side) to test your scap stability and grab the opposite shoulder block to help still your pelvis 💪🏼 ( i desperately need a pelvis emoji). see you on the mat bright and early tomorrow am!
sunny and ALMOST 75 👏🏼💃🏻 i got a hair up my ass and went to THE GYM with Jesse 💀🥊 it was uncomfortable but worth the time with him!
VARIETY is the secret sauce to fitness because it gets real boring, real fast the second it gets mundane + monotonous! 💯 a gym is the lamest way to spice it up if you ask me (i hateeee it) but we’ll only find something we love if we gooooo for it! 🏴
happy shunday ✌🏼
