Backshot like whoa
My heart is pure & my booty real
My booty and legs used to be bigger ( just look back on my gram ), and its because of these two : Powerlifting and bodybuilding, my legs grew like they did, my thighs increased by 10 centimeters in the first year alone
But at my strongest ever, I unfortunately made a true Hollywood stunt chrash down the stairs while carrying my sleeping son, ofcourse I did everything to protect him from the fall, which left me with a broken foot and a knee that still bothers me today, same year it was followed by hernia surgery and breast surgery, and now a year later another thing is coming up which will suppress muscular gains
But that is life, its a roller coaster, up's and down's are inevitably over time. No need to stress because progression arent constantly achieved, losses, failures, let downs, kick's to the head will eventually be part of your life to the end
But - very few "setbacks" are really setting you back, they will all add to increase the fire inside of you wanting to succeed, its all about you continuing the fight for what you want, regardless of how many times you are knocked down - #nevergiveup folks
Wonderful sunday out there

@Regrann from @redheadwayfarer - I was done with this series, but then this once lost quote popped up, and I just had to - one last time. ♥ “The truth is always in the minority, & the minority is always stronger than the majority, because as a rule the minority is made up of those who actually have an opinion, while the strength of the majority is illusory, formed of that crowd which has no opinion — & which therefore the next moment (when it becomes clear that the minority is the stronger) adopts the latter’s opinion, which now is in the majority, i. e. becomes rubbish by having the whole retinue & numerousness on its side, while the truth is again in a new minority.” Søren Kierkegaard 1850

"Javaris Neely @javarisneely (CEO of @tikiclothing561 )thought it would be cool to create a nice quality sneaker that’s a price-conscious alternative for people from less fortunate backgrounds as well as others who are looking to budget money. So he created the WaveRunner sneaker!" Salute to this King for taking ownership! ✊🏿 👟 🌊

I know that it may seem hard to believe, but people in the fitness world deal with the same kind of poor body image and insecurities as those that have never stepped foot in the gym. It's rarely ever talked about and it's something most people with a six-pack will rarely admit, but the self-consciousness and self-doubt run deep. For many, the day they decided to compete, was the day they will forever feel not good enough. Forever not muscular enough. Forever not lean enough. Forever not big enough. Forever not small enough. Forever not pretty enough. .
Although your newsfeed will be filled with countless skin-baring selfies and progress pictures... Behind many (maybe even the majority) of those perfectly lit portraits, is someone who can't pass a mirror without looking for imperfections. Even though to you, they seem flawless... In their own mind, what they see... Is simply not good enough.
I can speak from experience in these feelings and it's taken a significant amount of mental effort to turn my "forever not good enough" into "perfect does not exist." I choose to train for my everyday life because it challenges me to look past my reflection in a world and industry that puts so much emphasis on what the eyes can see. .
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder... It's up to you to realize, you are the beholder. ✨
How did I spend my Birthday yesterday? With some deep self care! Tea, spa and massages! 💆🏻 I am a new person! Blessed with another year #socialwork#birthday#pasadena
#supportyourlocalentrepreneur - Josh Mendoza - Founder of Destined for X - From humble beginnings as the son of Mexican immigrants growing up in a low income neighborhood in Southern California, Josh would go on to become the first in his family to not only attend, but graduate from college. And Stanford University at that. A big part of this being possible was an early college high school program Josh attended that was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation. After Stanford, Josh became a mechanical engineer at Microsoft, and while there founded the nonprofit Destined For X as a way of paying his good fortune forward. This organization is designed to empower students to follow their passions and aspire to a brighter future, no matter how many challenges or obstacles they may face. After all, it doesn't matter where you came from... what matters is where you're going - www.destinedforx.com
📽🎞VIDEO OF THE DAY🎞📽 Sunday’s mean yoga to me ... and when you can only get 7/11 minutes done from a routine you try to make the most of it. Standing twists with lunges in and out of warrior 3 pose. Can we say engaging the core?!
You are too full of life to be half loved 🦋
One of my favourite reminders to value myself. It is difficult sometimes to remind ourselves of that but it is so essential for our wellbeing and happiness. Often times though this can be challenging to put into practice. The right thing is rarely easy. 🦋
You are meant to grow and learn in uncomfortable ways but it is essential.
Focus on finding yourself and prioritizing your needs because you need to be selfish in order to give fully. Your happiness is your responsibility and no body else’s and that means doing what is best for you. Get to know the person you are. Ask what makes you feel most alive and full of life and fulfill those needs. You are the priority in your life and once you recognize that then you can focus on others. 🦋
Don’t settle for things that leave you wondering half empty or half full of happiness, love or fulfillment. When you focus on what you need and what is right then you open yourself up to receiving fully and you’ll begin to recognize the blessing of having any water in the glass. 💕 I wanted to write this for all those who need a reminder.🙂

This is sad to see in today’s society. Understanding that yes some of us may look different, talk different and dress different than others. That still doesn’t justify anyone being bullied or picked on. We have to do better to bring awareness. We have to put an end to this. People make your own decisions and don’t talk down on others for their differences embrace them. Thank you for speaking up #KeatonStrong . #stopBullying#whyPeopleBully#Bullying#antibullying ✊🏽
S/O to @frootkaves grabbing his copy of #Process ! He has a true passion for the vegan lifestyle and for total health. He shared that this was going to be something that he will utilize to read with his kids! That’s what #PassingOnProcess is all about.
Standing in line at Live Basil Pizza and I think i just met my soul twin in the body of 8 year old Sasha. She’s an an abstract artist, loves sushi, but when she asked me what my favorite gemstone was and started talking about the metaphysical properties, i knew I was in like Flynn.
She told me she was already famous on Facebook so this was ok to post. ❤️
A girl after my own heart. 😉
I have physically been in a little bit of a funk since our Thanksgiving travels. Stress with moving during the holidays and not eating the same during the move/travel has thrown me out of whack.
I have friends with iTovi scanners and each time oils/supplements pertaining to digestion and liver function would pop up.
Helichrysum is an oil we were gifted when we began the detox process for Ryland. It is pricey (but oh so worth it!!!), so I use it sparingly. That is a great thing about being confident in the quality of oils we use. I have had this same bottle since 2016!
Tonight I stopped putting myself aside and soaked in an epsom salt bath (1 cup) and 3 drops Helichrysum for as long as my water stayed warm.
Lots of sweating later (so gross I know) and drinking water I feel So.Much.Better! Now, I'm going to get a workout in using my 8fit app :)
I was a bit teary-eyed from happiness when I heard the news that a High School lacrosse & soccer ⚽️ teammate of mine (we now grow our nutritional cleansing businesses together), Lara Klein Leopaldi, hit the rank of Millionaire in the company that we're partnered with!!!! She is the 251st person to achieve that status and it is just about five months after giving birth to her gorgeous baby girl. Can we say badass mom on a mission?!? I remember sitting behind my computer 💻 and watching and observing with curiosity as she built her nutritional cleansing business (and I won't lie - I also had some skepticism). I actually ignored it for a while and it wasn't until I finally reached out to another teammate that I understood the power of this business, the integrity of the company and the ability to help people live healthier lives all while make limitless income from the comfort of your home or while traveling. Freedom, flexibility, fulfillment and choice were what Lara was building and I knew I wanted to be a part of that.
And today, with the most full heart ever, I'm so happy that she decided to leave her financial job on wall street to begin building a life for her family. She traded long train rides into the city and working in a cubicle for working from home and never missing a moment of her daughter' life. It's so beautiful and I love seeing her so happy 🙏🏼💕💕 Congratulations on all of your success, Lara! I love you, friend, and am soooooo excited for you!!! 💕💕
And if you can can at all relate to Lara's story, let's connect 🙌🏻. I'd love to show you how you can achieve flexibility, freedom and choice in your life 😘. *Income level achievements are dependent upon the individual's business skills, personal ambition, time, commitment, activity and demographic factors and should not be construed as typical or average.

Last month, I hit my 8th promotion (out of 12 total!) and earned my third trip since starting my business two and a half years ago. Cancun last spring, Banff, CAN this summer and now San Francisco + Wine Country- all courtesy of corporate, and all because I chose to do something a little bit crazy and a lot a bit out of my comfort zone. When competition in the work place is eliminated and a business is built on success for ALL, it makes for a much better work environment. Wouldn’t you agree?
