Be Kind

Be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. 💕

If there’s one thing growing a business off of social media (with mostly women I should add) it’s this.
We’re so quick to judge.
So quick to bash others. 
So quick to state our opinions on how we would have done it.
So quick to point fingers and place blames.

But 99% of the time you don’t know the full story.
She may be battling mega demons inside her own head.
She may be sick.
She may be struggling.
She may have a family member who’s sick.
She may be feeling alone.
She may need a distraction from the world around her.

Be a little kinder, a little more forgiving, a little more understanding.
The world needs more of that. 💛

The Key to Motivation

Wanna know my secret to staying on my fitness journey?! 🦄

I have other people counting on me.

I’ve always struggled fighting for myself, but if there is one thing I’m REALLY good at it’s showing up for other people. 

While chatting with a client today who’s been struggling to commit to a fitness routine, I realized just how KEY that piece of accountability is.

We made a game plan where she would meet her friend for their workout 3 times a week to get started (because baby steps are important).

Now she’ll be showing up not just for herself, but because she knows someone is counting on her.

And quite honestly, that’s been my magic trick to holding myself accountable on the days when I DON’T feel like working out or eating right.

–> I know I have a team of ladies who are counting on me.
–> I know I have to share a check in and my life on social media.
–> I know in order to set an example for others I have to follow through too.

And it’s never about being perfect, but it is about showing up and making an effort. It’s about PROGRESS.

Did you show up today?! 🙋

Need a little extra accountability? Want the ultimate accountability by becoming a coach? Always here and you can do it too 😘

What to do when you’re not motivated.

Confession: lately I’ve been struggling with some serious LACK of motivation with my workouts. This is typically never an issue for me BUT no one is motivated 100% of the time, and it’s been more of a struggle for me lately.
.
Does that mean I’m skipping my workouts?! Absolutely NOT.

Here’s what’s been working for me:
I’ve been scheduling my workouts like appointments. Legit, writing them into my planner. I treat them like I would a doctor’s appointment. I can’t cancel, can’t move things around, I have to show up.
I tell myself to get through ten minutes and if I’m not feeling it, I can stop. Most often the hardest part is getting STARTED and once I am moving I am just fine.
I constantly REMIND myself that I will feel 10X better AFTER I workout. No matter how tired, anxious, or busy I am, I will never REGRET getting it done.
.
Lastly, I cut myself some slack. I know I’m not perfect and if I miss a workout here or there, it’s not the end of the world, or the start of a new diet. I simply learn from it, and make sure I don’t miss another day. 💕

Do you struggle with motivation to workout? What helps you stay on track? mot💪

Find your STRENGTH

To all the women out there hating their legs….please stop.
Your legs carry you through life.
They allow you to run, jump, even just walk.
I always used to HATE my legs. Too muscular. No thigh gap. Just heavy. Since then I’ve grown to see them differently.
They are my strength. 
They are my movement.
They are there when I fall (and I do A LOT)
Never be ashamed of your strength, your imperfections. It’s OK to show up to the world in a very BIG way. Stop playing small, pretty, and perfect. 💕

Consistency is KEY

What you do consistently over time > what you do or don’t do one day.

Full Disclosure. I LOVE to workout. I crave that post workout high. Love nothing more than being in an empty gym, and genuinely look forward to my workouts every day.

Having that love of fitness has been AMAZING but that doesn’t mean I don’t have my fair share of struggles too. 💕
.
I HATE vegetables.
I STRUGGLE with emotional eating. 🍿
I get HUNGRY often.
I would rather SNACK than eat whole full meals.
I have the world’s biggest SWEET tooth. 🍫
Nutrition has always been a struggle point for me, and is something I will forever be a work in progress on.
.
So how do I tackle it?! I recognize that nobody is perfect and focus on the fact that what I do consistently over time, will always outweigh what I do or don’t do in one day. So I balance it.
I stick to my consistent daily workouts that I love.
I try to make the BEST nutrition choices I can each day. 🍓
I set myself up for success by planning and prepping my meals. 🍴
And I also cut myself some slack and don’t beat myself up when I have an off day, eat a cookie, or find myself munching out of stress. I just do the BEST I possibly can. 🍪

Remember: What you do consistently over time > what you do or don’t do one day.

Which do you struggle with more FITNESS or NUTRITION?
