I’m huge on self reflection and understanding & appreciating your journey... mine is definitely one I never expected to transpire. After track I began to really become uncomfortable with my small frame. I’m 5’1 1/2 and was weighing in at 98 lbs which was healthy for my height. Many don’t understand the struggle of being naturally petite because your metabolism is so fast making it super hard to keep weight on - let alone healthy weight. All my small petite women just know that you are not alone - I’ve gotten up to 130 lbs of healthy weight before zoning in and focusing on staying lean while gaining. Will it be easy? No. But great things never are!!! You learn so much about yourself during this process so ENJOY IT and all that comes with it- the good and the bad, the trails and the tribulations. It’ll all be worth it once you start to feel good about what you see in the mirror. But just make sure you’re doing this for YOU!! Not to attract more of a certain type or to fit into society but because you want to be in the best shape of your life physically and mentally!
All of the workouts used in my programs are workouts I personally do myself so I can vouch for how they work and the results because you’re looking at them!

BASE RUNNING FOR YOUNG BALLERS 101: Stealing in real life=bad... Stealing in a baseball game=good😁 Even if I’m not “FAST”, is it still possible to “LOOK FAST”🤔 I say absolutely you can “look fast”. If I’m a bigger or slower position player that isn’t typically looked at as any real type of threat on the bases, does that mean I just give up and take a 3 ft unathletic lead, so I can walk back into 1st base standing up if the pitcher picks over? Why would I want to take myself out of the equation completely, and make him so comfortable he can just put all of his attention on the batter🤷🏻♂️ That’s really boring baseball guys. I guarantee you I can find three different 6’2”/200lb 16-17 yr old first basemen, all with the same body type, and all with the same exact speed capabilities (lets say they all run a 7.5/60), and even if all 3 players have zero intentions of actually stealing... the one that is taking his lead on the edge of a cliff, low to the ground looking like a mountain lion🐆 about to pounce on a sick baby deer🦌, is going to look a lot faster than the other two guys taking clumsy looking 3 ft leads, making SURE they don’t make a mistake and get picked off👎🏼 If I know I’m not a base stealer thats ok not everyone is, but if I can create even the smallest impact on a pitchers thought process while he’s in a stretch... its better than doing absolutely nothing lol. It doesn’t take a lot of time or training to do this either, it just takes paying attention to details👀, knowing how to sell something, and finding ways to add value in a team setting. Get off the bag and live life on the edge a little playboy😎🙌🏼⚾️ #baserunning#look#fast#dosomething#baseball#compete#allday#everyday#d1#ncaa#aye#bruh#staywoke#focused#details#matter#train#speed#core#strength#goals#littleleague#mlb#crispy#stud#healthy#athlete#baseballislife#staypositive

Ich wünsche euch einen tollen Start in die Woche! 💋
💥When you are overwhelmed the key to getting out of it is to get specific.💥 Because if you’re overwhelmed it’s like a cloud of STUFF where you don’t know where to start. 😖
Either because you have too many ideas, or because you just don’t know what are the best steps to take.
Or maybe you do know what you’re doing but you’re just taking on too much?
BIG visions often = BIG to do lists! 🙈
Not like us creatives to do any of that, eh? 😂
Anyway, stress not because calm is in its way... 🙏🏼 👉 Simply take the “Which Creative Entrepreneur Are You?” FREE Quiz (link in bio) to identify which are your Top 3 next best steps. 👏👏👏 And I’m doing a live video series in Dec to go through each step and mindset shift for you over on the Creative Flow FB page. 😎
PS I’m opening the doors to my new community this week so look out for details! 🎉
