Perfect Imperfection is the theme for this past week...
It's Day 22 and I think this past week was the best in terms of progress but the worst in terms of preparation..
My Meals were mostly rushed and time was not on my side...
This weekend was ridiculous in that I has tons to do and barely had the time to think straight
Lucky for me I ensure that I have only good food in my fridge this ensure that even when it's rushed... I'm able to concoct something quick and nutritious
My Meals prep for the week Is basically stir fried veg and Steak strips which is easy enough to throw into a wok for dinner time
For lunch today I had some baked chicken strips with some wholewheat pasta in a bowl added some veg and fresh coriander..
It was quick, simple and convenient
**Quote for Today**
A goal without a plan is just a wish 💚💚💚
If you want to paddle, then practice
If you want to win, then practice harder
Whether it's in a single or crew. Put the effort in and you will be rewarded.
I put more emphasis on my singles paddling because if shit goes wrong it's on me, no one else.
It was my decision making,
My effort alone
If singles scare you,
I've been there.
No one is watching you waiting for you to fail.
Pluck up the courage to extend your comfort zone and go get it!
Up your game, and back yourself. Because your approval and judgement is the ONLY one that matters.
Think you have the courage to start stepping up?
I have an online workshop planned that will cover some basics of paddling (specifically V1 as we are now in sprints season here in NZ). If you are committed to showing up,
Ready to make improvements in your paddling,
Start getting gains from all the hard work you put in,
then drop me a PM and register your interest.
Watch this space for more deets 🤙🏽 Share this post with anyone you think would benefit from getting involved. Much aroha 😘
Stanca, appoggiata al muro, sempre connessa...ripenso a quanto splendida sia la mia vita...❤ Ripenso a tutto quello che posso ancora realizzare, aiutando nel mio piccolo gli altri... Perché lo faccio?!🤔
Perché nelle vene mi scorre un'inarrestabile voglia di volare tatuata per non dimenticare❤
Positivi ed operativi...pronti per prendere il volo?!😉 #positiviedoperativi#beyourbest#me_lo_merito#business#motivation#fitnessmotivation

Did you know that raw cacao is the earth’s top source of antioxidants, with 40X the antioxidants of blueberries per mg? And the benefits of cocoa flavanol antioxidants go far beyond taste. Scientific research at Columbia, Harvard and other top institutions demonstrates the remarkable benefits of daily cocoa flavanols on circulation, brain, heart, and skin health.

“YOU CANNOT FAIL WHEN YOU ATTEMPT THE IMPOSSIBLE!” As Thomas Edison said “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up! The most certain way to succeed is to try ONE MORE TIME!” I know there are going to be a million times in our lives that we want to give up....
Where you absolutely ache with the desire to quit!
Where nothing sits inside your gut other then the certainty that you are going to fail...
That you are not good enough to push forward.... But that is to fundamentally misunderstand the nature of a failure!
The nature of a failure is not to tell you who you are. The nature of a failure is to tell you a way that didn’t work!
It’s to educate you!
It’s to test you!
It’s to be a gut check to find out if you believe in yourself enough to push forward even when the world seems to be telling you not to... And as Brian Tracy said “Attempt the impossible in order to improve your work”
Think about that for a second......🤔
Attempt the impossible just to get better!
To try the things that you know are going to fail.
Things that the world is simply gonna tell you “cannot be”
But even if it violates the laws of physics, if there’s something in that attempt that you are going to learn, you owe it to yourself!
You have a fucking moral obligation to try!
Because all of the people that will lie in your wake are the people that didn’t try simply because they didn’t believe that they could do it!
You have to be willing to look at the world.
You have to be willing to see things that you yourself think are impossible and try.....
Cause in that you will stretch yourself.
You have to be willing to look inward at the state of your current skill set and say...
“I’m going to play outside of that!”
“I’m not going to play where it’s safe!”
“I’m going to play where it hurts!”
“I’m going to play where I feel clumsy!”
“I’m going to play only in the areas that make me feel stupid!”
My favorite quote and something I like to remind myself of when I am not satisfied or happy... I CREATE MY OWN REALITY. If I am not happy, I have the power to change things. No one else will do it for me. WHO CAN RELATE TO THAT? 🤔✨🍃 #autumn#instaquote#responsibility#empowerment
Hey hey, it’s a #newraceshirt#sundayrunday 😊 So, little story about this shirt... I have the terrible habit of getting to packet pick-up getting my stuff and just going on my way. I’ve ended up with several ill-fitting shirts because of this. Well, after I picked up my packet yesterday, I was waiting in the pick up area and though “hmmm...I should really try this on”. When I did I found it was HUGE. Then I checked the size. The volunteer had accidentally handed me an XXL instead of a large. I headed right back to the table to see if I could exchange it which the volunteer did with a smile, she also told me she didn’t even realize they had XXL shirts. So, that said, I LOVE this shirt! It’s a tech material, t-shirt weight hoodie with thumb holes and a little zippered pocket on my right hip, could there be a more perfect fall running shirt?!?! As for my Run, my legs were tired so I’m super happy with my distance and time, and I’m still counting this as a #morningrun because I got it in before noon. Today was a rare day where I didn’t have to set an alarm so I took full advantage of it! Huge congrats to my racing friends this weekend, and happy running everyone!❤️ #myrunstreak day 1,062 #run#runner#running#runhappy#runohio#akrun#runnergirl#motherrunner#runnersofinstagram#runnerscommunity#teamfitfam#beyourbest#getoutside#gorun#justkeeprunning#positivevibes#fallrunning
