Let me open up my life to you guys and give you some insight into my daily routine.

I am a very busy mother of 2. I work at two different gyms, with my schedule always changing and rearranging.

I am going through a separation. I am trying to be the best athlete I can be and stay consistent with my training.

With all these things I’m juggling, sometimes it’s hard to stay motivated and get minuscule tasks completed. I don’t have my ‘shit’ together all the time and sometimes I don’t want to

fold my laundry, or write a blog, or get up and train,  or meal prep you can forget that.

One thing I’ve noticed is that as soon as I get started and get these things done; even the things that seem intimidating or daunting, once initiated, make me feel genuinely HAPPY.

There’s such an amazing feeling that comes with being productive and just getting shit done!

This applies to working towards your goals too. I guarantee it doesn’t make you feel good sitting around thinking and wishing instead of doing. Actually it probably makes you feel

worse. Guess what — the longer you sit around thinking and wishing and saying “one day”, “maybe tomorrow”, “i’ll start Monday” the more time you’re wasting !!!! Stop wasting your

life, get moving, start now!

The truth is, reaching your goals feels great, but the true joy is in GETTING STARTED and all the little work you put in every day knowing you’re getting closer to achieving

something or completing something. It’s so satisfying and EMPOWERING knowing that you’re reaching for something and taking charge and working on it.

The sooner you start, the more productive you feel, and you fire up that joy and satisfaction knowing you’re now taking action to get what you want!

What are you waiting for?

Why do people some people always need to have opinions about others. I hear so many judgements and criticisms about people every single day.

People seem to think they know what’s best for other people. They have a better way of doing things, a better way people should run their own lives. I hear people saying “why would you do that” and “you should do it this way”. They don’t understand why people do certain things certain ways.

I don’t know why anyone else would think they know what is best for other people. You see them for a fraction of the day a few days a week. The other 23 hours a day you have no idea what goes on in someones life and as my 7 year old would say “you don’t live in their body”.

You don’t need to understand why people do things. The only life you’re living is your own. 

Stop wasting energy judging and criticizing other. You only have to live your life. The only person looking back at you in the mirror is yourself. No one else deals with your choices, your feelings, or anything you encounter in a day. It’s all you, so no one should make any decisions for you except for YOU! Why even care what others think when they are only aware of such a small fraction of what is going on in your life. It’s so easy to make quick judgements without knowing the full story. Worry about your own actions and your own life choices.

Let go of 2 things :

  1. Worrying about what others do
  2. Worrying about what others THINK of you

People aren’t robots and they are not going to make all the right choices and do all the right things all the time. Life is never black and white stop judging people like it is.

What a great training week. I got EVERYTHING done in programming which honestly never happens. Between work, mom life,

running a household, etc, it can be hard to get it in.

This week I ate properly, I tried to sleep, and the most important thing I did was put my phone down during training and at

night. So this week I’ve hit PR’s almost everyday. Strung 2 muscle ups together. Then today strung 3. PR’d my clean, split

jerk, strict handstand push ups, and toes to bar. So many PR’s so needless to stay on i’m on a high.

Now, every week is NOT like this. Some weeks blow chunks. Some weeks I feel like I’m making no

progress. Some days to hit 90% on lifts is a struggle or feels near impossible. That’s ok though, there will always be days,

weeks, and months like that. Train anyway. Train through those plateaus and gains will come.

Don’t get discouraged. Stay on track always.
