Last year one yoga instructor told me that I shouldn’t aim to do this pose because I wouldn’t be able to do it as I wasn’t able to stand up from Urdhva Dhanurasana...so today I tried and I can do it...still a bit of work to do but I am here in #laghuvajrasana and....I am still not able to stand up from Urdhva Dhanurasana 🤷🏻♀️ “I bend so I don’t break”...especially mentally. Never allow what others tell you create barriers in your dreams, in your path in what you aim for you. Just pursue your heart, mind and soul. #yogaeverydamnday#365daysofhappiness#365daysofgratefulness#happylife#icandoit
I’ve been gone for about a week or so... definitely a week of eatin good! Haha, but not so much health-wise. I celebrated Valentines Day with my love, then drove 6 hours to spend my best friend’s birthday with her. Needless to say many cakes and chips were eaten. Not only that, but I’ve learned that weight loss is going to be a bit tougher for me than it was before thanks to BC and such. So I kind of lost my motivation. I don’t feel too bad, because I have been feeling much more self-love and happiness for where I am right now and the body that I have, but I have gained back most of the weight I lost in January. I’m going to be trying a couple things but with this semester kicking my butt, I need to focus more on school than dedicating so much time to losing weight. •
That said, looking back at this old picture of her and I makes me wish I could be that size again. We were going to a concert that night and I just remember the looks we got and how good we felt! It would be nice to wear shorts that short again and be confident about it. •
Anyway, there’s that. Peace and love everyone. ✌️🤟
This is my motivation, I’m the one in yellow when I weighed my current goal weight of 135. The funny thing is I wanted to lose weight because I was uncomfortable. I’m short so I always thought I was overweight. I technically didn’t gain all this weight until I got pregnant with my little one who is almost 4, he was born with some health issues so I ate my feelings and gained another 15 pounds on top of the 35 I gained while pregnant. #weightlossjourney#ketomom#ketolife#iwillloseweight#icandoit
When all else fails and you still can't get a kipping ring muscle up, and your swinging sucks butts, and you are super frustrated with your skill progress, act like you can/meant to do a couple pull ups 😂 I seriously feel like I am digressing as I try to get these right. Anyway here is a failed even though I tried and tried again video. I am determined to put a video of me actually getting at least one of these ring muscle ups on my page. One day. It. Will. Happen. #nevergiveup#icandoit#itsstillprogress#imfurtheralongthanlastyear#rings#kipping#itsugly
Over the past month and a half I’ve experienced: increased stress, failures, family challenges, crazy hormones, lack of motivation in my workouts, drinking more alcohol than I prefer, weight gain and less time for friends and family..... 🧘♀️🍋✌🏼🥑😇💜💩🤪🤯🤦🏼♀️👣🌞 So this morning, I changed things up and told myself the following:
1. Get the fuck up, you can do this.
2. Put in the work, only you can make it happen.
3. Be proud of yourself.
4. Be confident- you’re a badass bitch.
5. Take what is yours so you can give more to all.
6. Be undeniable always.
7. Light up every damn room you walk into this week.
8. Focus on your own shit.
9. Don’t settle for mediocrity, strive to be the absolute best you can be daily.
10. Enjoy all this crazy shit and laugh more fucking often!
Needless to say, I’ve got this! Sometimes you have to motivate your own damn self. Hopefully, this also resonates with some of you out there and inspires you to do the same. ✌🏼✌🏼 #iamafuckingpowerhouse#badassbitch#goals#start#showup#laugh#beundeniable#icandoit
