Someone told me today I never stop grinding. They right-I'm workin hard at hardly workin, cuz when you enjoy something there's no work at all. Every day I'm levelin up and hittin life harder. Easiest way to retain your happy state is to smile at the stress and call it fun. Of course, working out in fox pjs heals the attitude as well.❤️
It’s a bit fuzzy 🐝 but I could not be happier to have had @kendra.vandervelde come do some shoulders with me today! 💪🏻
Today I set up my NEW phone (aka @ievavgm ‘s old iPhone 6) which means I felt balky got to set up my new series 3 Apple Watch ⌚️😍 which has been sitting on my desk unused for 3 weeks because my 5c wasn’t compatible 😅
I was SO EXCITED to have so much phone space and my new watch that I played with them all day! When I got to the gym I ended up doing 20 minutes of stairs, shoulders with @kendra.vandervelde , then ab circuits, AND THEN incline speed walking on the treadmill for another 20 minutes! I was having so much fun playing with all the apps on my watch I ended up spending a ton of time at the gym- and loving every minute!

I didn't wanna gym today. Plain and simple. I'm flying to Denver tonight and kinda busted my booty last night to make sure I'd have enough time to hit the gym today.
Yet, when I woke up... the desire and motivation I possessed yesterday was gone. My husband told me he wanted to come to with me. Still, I didn't wanna. I avoided it all morning by finding things to check off my to do list. Until it was the only thing left.
We made it to the gym. We even found two treadmills next together (which is pretty much impossible at my gym on Saturday,) but I had already told myself that I was just gonna do 30 min instead of 60.
I got going and started my intervals, like I always do, but I wasn't feeling it. It was hard today. It was just plain hard. I was doubting my ability to push through. I was ready to go home. I told my hubby I didn't feel well. He looked at me and told me to just slow down.
At first I was disappointed he didn't say "good, let's go" as he usually does, but then I realized he believed I could finish my cardio. If he believed in me, then I should believe in me. I know it's silly, but for some reason that's how my brain interpreted it. I'm grateful, because that little paradigm shift helped me kill the rest of my workout.
This is super long and I'm sorry for that. The whole point of this post is to let you know that I believe in you #fitfam When you're struggling to believe in your abilities, let me believe in you. We're all in this together. I love my little tribe. #nevergiveup 💪 .
Post-workout selfie! The only negative to wearing black in the gym is you can’t see how much you’re sweating! Anyone else find it oddly satisfying to see the sweat on your clothing? When I’m in the gym I like to do focused sets of core, legs, & arms, and then finish off with some cardio! The gym is really becoming my happy place, the moment I leave I’m dreaming up what my next workout will be! Did you workout today?
