I've been told that my body type is genetic. I can sit on the couch & believe that or I can try to change. Sure I had 4 kids & lost all the 50-60lbs I gained each time but I also worked like crazy to get it off. I ran & ran and ran!! Lots of medals to prove my hard work. It's called knowing that if you want results or change you cannot get it with magic. You get it by showing up. But even though the scale was saying what I wanted it to I was not taking care of me. My eating habits were horrible. I was crazy enough to push through long runs but the body needed more fuel to help me keep going. After my second full marathon & struggle to finish I was ready for a change. I started this fitness journey with my home gym to try something new & also thought I could to lose a few pounds. Never did I think that I would actually be gaining weight. I currently weigh 12 pounds more than I did when I was 18. So practically for the last 20 years plus I weighed around the same with hard work to stay there. I ran four years to keep my weight at where I thought healthy weight was for me.
Now at 43 I am around 125 and could care less what the scale says. I feel amazing inside & out.
Genetics be might be an uphill battle for some, but we can change our fate. We can change our size and the percentage of our muscle fibers with the right training, just like we can change our body composition with the right diet.
But for regular superheroes like you and me, there’s no reason why we can’t be who we want to be, and look how we want to look.
Are you doing enough to get you results?

Do you have what it takes? Let me answer that for you...YES you do. 22 minutes can help all the busy moms get results.
Starting future series in (2)s instead of 3, taking too long to post all the shoots. 。
Don't waste words on people who deserve your silence. Sometimes the most powerful thing you can say is nothing at all.
HIIT training! ❤️ doing cardio to lose weight IS effective, but the kind and time frame you do is crucial. High Intense Interval Training: could do it 3-4xs a week, an easy 10-20minutes (lol not easy), something like 6-8rds of 20sec sprints 30sec off rest @12.5mph or higher (beginners practice with lower mph) and bam! You keep your muscle on, boost your metabolism, and burn just as much calories in that time frame as you would with 45min-1hr of jogging on a treadmill. I am so glad Nicki is so willing on doing workouts with me as I am with her. Not likes she's not lean enough, but now that she was taught how to interval train? Watch what HIIT could do 😎🤗 @nickii.fit
When you look in the mirror, what do you see?
When you think about yourself, what do you think?
When you speak to yourself, what do you say?
When you want to take action on something, do you do it? Or do you talk yourself out of it?
It's you versus you! Wake up everyday prepared to win 👊💯
One of my favorite transition positions in Silat. You have to lean to integrate your emptyhand movements with weapons so you have a more seemless flow and need to learn less. The less you need to remember the better of you are when stress comes to visit during real violence.
