You guys! Two months ago, I was not able to fit into a lot of my clothes.  It was difficult to button things up and there was also some serious muffin top happening.  The thought of buttoning up these bottoms and then sitting down seemed impossible.
I tried these on on a whim while chatting with my little sister (who is down 7 pounds by working out with me!!! 🙌🏽)...and it looks like I’ve finally unlocked a portion of my wardrobe that was previously a no-go. And it feels great!!!
Are you hanging onto things in your closet for “one day”? What are you waiting for?! Let’s get you started on your journey to “one day” today!!!

Modified Yancy Camp 607 done...✅ It’s amazing how many people won’t workout because they hate going to the gym. I get it. But do you know how much you can do for your body at home without equipment?

Running/walking - no equipment needed
Body weight exercises - no equipment needed
Hill climbs - no equipment needed 
Heavy carries - 11$ 50lbs dirt bag from Home Depot
Dead hangs - local park monkey bars

Ran 6k tonight with half of it under 6:30/km (that’s a huge speed improvement for me as I average 7:30, I’m a slowwww runner). I was huffin and puffin but my mindset was in the right place. 
At home... Every minute on the minute:
Burpees, mountain climbers, plank drop hips. 10 minutes 
Battle Rope tabata x 1
Dead hangs max x 5

Today I am bouyed by the kindness of strangers.  Whilst there are so many negative aspects to social media, there are good ones too - such as coming together in support of a person or a cause.  My gratitude goes out to all who have believed in me on my little crusade to increase the visibility and presence of older women in the media.  Whilst I simply cannot respond to messages as my family is my priority, I do read them all and your encouragement has spurred me on.  Lets smash the semi finals when voting commences next week!  I’m taking a digital break for a few days - please have a safe and happy Easter 🐣Let me know below if you’re up to anything fun!

Double S-wrap to salto, dropping into position for C-shape windmill down and unwrapping.
Normal windmill is very uncomfortable enough, and C-shape windmilling is even worse 🙈 the silks are trying to squeeze every internal organ out of you, it is a horrible feeling 😂 annnd you have to suck it up and do all the unwraps when you already want to kill yourself 🙈.
Buuuut what’s the funnn if it doesn’t hurt at all? 🤫 Hopefully Ill get better at it soon ;) .

4 faster than desired miles and 5 rounds later I finished #stronginspring #day3 #amrap
.  Had some wild technical malfunctions on my run today! My watch told me I was running a 10 minute pace so I sped up trying to get to my usual pace and ended up pushing a 7:15 for the middle 2 miles of my run .

Learned some things about myself on this run... I can run a 7:15, my claves don’t like when I run a 7:15, and I’m not very good at listening to my body 😳 .

Thank god for rest days! #ragnarready #stronginspring #katcrew #katcrewslay #everythinghurtsandimdying #strongnotskinny @daniellepascente

I love conventional deadlifts. LOVE. RDLs on the other hand? 🙅🏻‍♀️Less love. .

I always feel like I’m doing them wrong. I feel like I’m Elle Woods doing the bend and snap 🤣 And tonight I realized how weak my grip strength really is 😭 .

Guess that means I need to practice both to improve! 💪🏻

T-I-R-E-D but it’s all good 🌻 When you are grinding day and night for what you want, for your goals and for your success it’s a different type of tired... Keep grinding 💤

♥️Make yourself a priority♥️
♥️Pencil yourself in♥️ It’s ok. 
I have a lot of people, particularly mommies, that’s tel me they just don’t have the time to workout or they are just too tired.

You have time and believe it or not, you’ll get more energy. 
You just need to find where it works for you and really, you only need 20-30 min of a heart pumping workout 3-5 times a week. That’s so doable. 
Today I got my 20 min workout in while Lucas was napping. I also put a load of laundry in the wash and changed the sheets on our bed #boom 
It’s about prioritizing your time, figuring out how it’s going to work for you. For some people, waking up early works for them (not me!!), others need to do it right when they’re done with work (ME!!!) and others are best later on at night. 
So what are you going to do? Sit there and continue to complain how you have no time or too tired OR find and make the time?? I’m here if you need to chat more and figure it all out! 
You can and you will! ✌🏻♥️💪🏻

FEAR FOOD CHALLENGE!!!!
okay guys, today I faced one of my biggest food fears- pasta. 
I haven’t had pasta in over 2 years, throughout my ED my fear of it has increased more and more each day. I cannot even tell you guys how many times a month my mom wants to make pasta for dinner and I come up with some reason why it doesn’t sound good and she always replies “but you used to love pasta” and she’s right. I used to LOVE pasta, especially spaghetti. 
anyways, you all know how it goes- you avoid a food once, and then again, and then again until you’re literally not allowed to have it and the mere thought of it causes you anxiety. but it’s an irrational fear, eating pasta has never caused me any harm. even though I knew that my avoidance of eating pasta was me continuing to allow my ED to have some control of me, I thought I genuinely COULD NOT face it. but with the encouragement of you guys, I did it 🙌🏼 I’ve only been in the recovery community for about a month and you guys have all already helped me SO much, I’m so thankful for each one of you❤️
I’m not going to pretend that eating that bowl of pasta was easy, I struggled all day, with my ED trying to convince me that the LEAST I could do was restrict all day. but as @megsy_recovery DON’T COMPENSATE. so I ate all day, and when it came time for dinner I did all I could to block out the inner ED voice and I cooked and ate my pasta. and no, it was not the end of the world, hopefully I can face it again soon and each time I do it will become easier.

1. Competition bench— 3 of 3 x 5 - 110 lbs.
2. Pin tempo bench - 2 of 4 x 8 - 95 lbs. - 3,2,2 tempo.
——
End of vacation time, and back to serious training. Super excited to workout at my home gym @warcatstrengthgym. It feels soooo good to go heavy and use a barbell. Definitely appreciate that my hotel/ resorts had gyms, but they pale in comparison to Warcat.
My body is still running on UTC instead of PDT time zone. Went to the gym earlier than usual and got to see some different yet familiar faces.
Bench day— The weight was definitely challenging, but thankfully, still moved. 🤗 shoutout to @animebadboii for the lift offs and giving the press command so I remember to pause long enough. Pin tempos sucked extra today. I set my pins too low and I didn’t really notice it until my last set. I definitely need to keep both lats tight at all times so I don’t smack the left pin early, and hit pins so violently. Not shown here, but gassed out on the 3rd set and took a bail rather than press it. I was being a little bitch. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Sorry coach.

Let's build more strength for day 4 of #PinchaPlayLove!

We all love dolphin push-up. Oh yes, we do! 🙈🙈🙈🙈 Okaaay! I just love it for its benefits but I actually really hate it for it's so friggin tough 😂 but no pain, no gain! Just breath through that pain and you will survive! This pose, for me, is the MOST effective way to build strength for pincha. I only need a few of this and I'm good to go upside down! Dolphin pose strengthens the core, arms, and legs, all at the same time, while also opening the shoulders 💓 Just what you need for your strong forearm stand!

Worked out for the first time in almost 2 weeks. Some of it was due to injury, busy schedule and some, unfortunately was due to lack of motivation. 
This👏shouldn't👏bring👏you👏down👏

Despite not exercising, eating the healthiest or just laying in bed and RESTING, we are still warriors, we are still worth it, and we still got lots of fight in us💪😜 #womancrushwednesday #blowyourowndamnmind #youareworthit #youareenough #keepgoing #motivation #weightloss #weightlossjourney #fitness #fitnessjourney #redheads #redheadswholift #curvyfitgirl #strongnotskinny #thickthighs #girlswholift #lifting #dayton #ohio #fitfam #selflove #iamworthit #parksandrec #johnralphio #theworst

I know for a fact, I may biggest critic. Many times after an amazing workout I look in the mirror and still see the extra rolls, the still not so flat tummy, or the perfect arms, and this goodness still not good enough. But ladies and Gents we gotta stop doing that to ourselves. We need to praise and admire ourselves for the work that we are putting in 💪🏾💪🏾 we are beasts and we better not forget it! .

727*3 & 771 single to follow it up. Tonight was dope and unexpected to be honest, sometimes that's the best way to train.

DUCK EGG!  This egg was so big!  I was so excited to try it I had breakfast for dinner!! These were also my first non-sweet potato potatoes in ages! And I had the entire English muffin instead of my usual half. I actually had what I wanted for this meal, not what I thought I should have. 
This meal reminded me of when I started recovery and my dietician tried to get me to eat eggs.  I went to the store to get some and was shocked to find out that they only had large or extra large eggs anymore.  I don’t know when things changed but stores used to carry small and medium eggs too.  I was so upset that I couldn’t get small eggs and wouldn’t dare eat a large one as the extra 10 calories would surely make me implode. So I left empty handed and went another year without eating eggs.  Now I can eat them here and there.... not consistently but I’m also no longer afraid of them.  Now I can even eat a giant duck egg if I want to!! Success!! I may have bad days but that’s ok because if I don’t give up I’ll keep slowly inching forward. -

Still on a quest to get full today, hoping this massive helping of green beans does it for me. Yes, I ate more shrimp too. Weighed and tracked so it’s all good. -

Our small daily habits are what make or break us.

They may seem insignificant.. but they add up over time.

So I challenge you to choose just one habit.. and make it a little bit healthier 😊

Doing this over and over again the last few years.. is literally how I got here.

SMALL changes.

I want to show you how too!! So I'm offering a gift for the first 5 ladies to commit to my May bootcamp! 
We'll be working on building better habits 🙌🏼 Workouts, nutrition and accountability provided! We will focus in on some small daily habits you can switch up!
Just in time to start feeling amazing for this warmer weather 💕

DM me or comment below if you're interested in some info!

My 21st birthday and I hate my body!

Wooo! 21 years old, I probably drank 4 times this week. Cause that’s what I did my whole sophomore year of college.

I gave up on working out, and if you ate healthy I probably thought your were weird and crazy. Cause what’s nutrition?

This girl was struggling, self love was not a thing, I was insecure, & 20 pounds heavier.

I remember telling myself I needed to start working out. I probably said I would start tomorrow 1,000 times. My excuses seemed legit or at least I convinced myself they were.

Eventually, I just got to a point where I got tired of the voices in my head go back and forth, it was exhausting.

One voice is telling me I want to workout & it would be good for me mentally and physically, while the other tells me how about next week or it’s college it’s okay to gain weight everyone does.

No it’s not okay. It’s not okay to make promises with yourself and not keep them, it’s not okay to tear yourself down, it’s not okay to treat your body like shit, it’s just not okay. Finally, it hit me. I was tired of it. I knew I deserved more.

This old me gradually kept fading and fading, little by little, before I knew it with consistency, patience, and effort that girl who put herself last was long gone.

Sorry @therock, but sleep is important and a lack of it is no bueno. Lack of sleep does the body zero favors and can indeed pose some possible unwanted outcomes.
———————-
This meta-analysis found that people who sleep less will probably eat more without expending more energy. The result = weight gain.
———————-
It should be noted that sleep is not the only contributor to body weight. It just makes fitness goals harder to achieve.
———————-
I especially like this meta-analysis because it further supports my reasoning to stay in on the weekends like an old man 👴🏽

I’ve been a little MIA so I thought I’d catch up and give a quick update. ▪️
During my run on Saturday I fell and twisted my knee pretty bad. There was swearing, swearing and compete fear that I did something permanent. I say on the ground for a while and when I got up and joggers little, I decided to finish the run and do my cool down like normal. This is where I should listen to my body more. I should have walked it in. I should have stretched more when I got home. But those things didn’t happen. ▪️
I’ve now been to my physical therapist twice who told me to take the week off and hit my long run with fresh legs on Saturday. Given that timing wise that doesn’t work, I’ll be doing 18 on my treadmill on Friday morning. This will give me a very controlled environment for running and no twisting of the knee! ▪️
I watched the #bostonmarathon and was sooo inspired by all those athletes! I can’t wait to get back in my groove but for now I am soaking up SPRING BREAK!!
▪️
We’ve stayed busy doing all kinds of free things in our area and I am loving it! More to come in the next week with this whole crew!!

I closed my calorie ring before I even started my workout aka I was nonstop moving all day. I don’t even know if I sat down longer than 5 min all day. I have a to do list a mile long but I knew I would feel so much better if I took an hour to not focus on anything else, and I felt so much better after! And guess what, I’m still getting everything on my to do list done too! Boom! Wednesday, slayed ✅

Are we really happy or just settling? 🤷🏼‍♀️ How many people do you think are just settling? Probably a lot. People settle into okay relationships, okay jobs, okay friends and an okay life. Why?
Because okay is comfortable. 
Okay pays the bills, and provides a warm bed at night. Some people are fine with okay and guess what? That’s okay. 
But okay isn’t thrilling, it isn’t passion filled or life changing. Okay is not the reason you risk absolutely everything you’ve got for the smallest chance that something absolutely amazing could happen! 
Take a risk, any risk! ✨✨

Just me!

Just me!

I started reading #girlstopapologizing this week and something I read today really struck me and resonates really profoundly with how I’ve been feeling lately and why I started this journey and this biz.

Some of us are REALLY BAD at showing up for ourselves. Hello, me 🙋🏻‍♀️. I was SO guilty of this 2 and a half months ago. I love people and my relationships are really important to me. Doing things for others genuinely makes me feel good.

However, doing things for and taking care of my people was completely out of balance with the time I was spending on myself. I spent all day at work helping my students or whoever else happened to come my way, then I came home and made dinner or ran errands or cleaned up the apartment or whatever else needed my attention. Then I would collapse on the couch exhausted and not want to do anything else.

It was a terrible cycle and looking back on it I can’t believe that I lived my life that way for as long as I did. These days, I have something for myself every single day. At least 30 minutes a day 6 days a week I dedicate to myself and my workouts. This time is CRUCIAL for so many reasons. 
Before I started making that time for myself I was tired a lot of the time. I wasn’t as genuinely happen. I got annoyed and frustrated at stupid stuff I couldn’t control. NO MORE. If you’ve been feeling this way, snap out of it!! Please don’t spend another second living your life like that.

Want to know more about how I’ve carved out time for my health and this biz and how you can do the same? I’m always here to help YOU find the time, be successful, and truly and happily live your life the way you want ❤️

Ran out of OJ last night for my ☀️ so had to find a quick alternative with @arbonne citrus fizz 🍊 and I might even like this better than the original - light, fizzy, and less sugar-heavy 👏🏻

One more week until we jet off ✈️ to go on an adventure and explore the beautiful country of Vietnam 🇻🇳 .

I’m looking forward to the breathtaking views and amazing food 🍴 .

Although I’ve been to Vietnam a few times to visit family I never had the chance to properly appreciate my parents homeland .

So you better watch this space and follow us to see what we get up to!! 💕 .

We all start our fitness journey for various reasons but one reason we all started was to be a better us.
Fitness helps in so many ways. 
A lot of people just see the weight loss or muscle gain. 
What they don’t see is the ups and downs the hard work the mental focus. 
You realize it’s your outlet, it becomes your escape. 
No worries just you & the weights. 
It’s not just physical but also mental. 
It’s a release. 
A place where you answer to no one. Where you leave everything at the door. 
You put all your stress, hurt, worries, anger, and thoughts into the weights. 
Day in and day out you’ll realize the impact it has. 
Fitness makes us all become a better us. 
It showed me a light at the end of the tunnel, a way to find myself again. 
To gain back my strength. To be unstoppable, to know that no matter what is thrown my way I am strong & will only come out stronger. 
Let fitness impact your life.
Forever becoming better. .

Happiness cannot be forced, but it likes persistent people. 🔜 One day all this will pay off. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bald werde ich 20 Jahre alt, eigentlich ja ziemlich jung🙈. Trotzdem suche ich schon seit vielen Jahren mein Glück im Leben. Und wenn ich etwas bis jetzt gelernt habe dann das, dass die Zeit zwar nicht alles heilt, man aber wenn man weiter macht früher oder später sein Glück finden wird. #oneday 
Nicht umsonst haben die erfolgreichsten Menschen eine schwere Vergangenheit oder einen Schicksalsschlag erlebt, bevor sie ihr Glück und ihren Erfolg gefunden haben. Sowas bringt einem bei weiter zu machen #nomatterwhat .
