I hear people wanting to give up on something after a few weeks or a few months because it's hard. OMG!🚫 NO! You don't know what HARD it is. HARD is chasing a goal for 10 years💯.... HARD is asking for help and having people turn their back on you. 💯 HARD is coming home crying but having to suck it up and do it again tomorrow because you promised yourself you would.💯 It took me a LONG 10 years to get through college. It wasn't because I took some time off and studied abroad, or took a few classes at a time. It was because I was ON THE FREAKING STRUGGLE BUS!!🙈 I failed multiple classes MULTIPLE times, had a difficult time not only with the classes but understanding the teachers as well. When I saw all my friends graduating and moving on I got discouraged.... When I saw people YOUNGER than I was graduating, I got depressed. After I was "INVITED TO LEAVE" the school (wink wink), I wanted to quit and say "SCREW THIS!" But I just couldn't do it. With 7 classes left and I just couldn't walk away just because they wanted me to. 👎
So I transferred schools and got a change of scenery. I needed to be at PLNU because they ACTUALLY wanted their students to do well. In 9 months I graduated with my finance degree in one hand and my middle finger to my old school because🖕 I DID IT!🖕 I did it when they thought I couldn't.
Work everyday at your goal....Business, fitness, personal, etc. Your goal isn't supposed to come easy- otherwise it wouldn't be called a goal, right? No matter if you have people in your corner, or people rooting against you...Keep working on it. It took me 10 YEARS to graduate and I worked at it everyday. How long have you been working on your goal? 🤔🤔🤔
When I have 5lb weights and bands for a leg workout.... let it be known, it is pure evil! The face says it all! . And if your a good detective, check out my weight distribution... all on the heels 🍑 .
Great rehab exercise or leg day finisher! (I did 3x10 as groin is still not happy) but for you guys.... 3x FAILURE (you will be sure to walk out crying 😂😂)
HOW TO PERFORM CAT & COW POSE
I've done this move for years and never knew the name, I also never knew I was doing it incorrectly! Still not perfect but that what consistency makes, right! Anywho, the benefits are amazing:
📚Stretches the spine, back and abdomen
📚Stimulate Organs (GI Tract)
📚Opens up the lungs, aids in breathing
📚Relieves low back pain!
Let's Get It!✅
1️⃣Begin on all 4s with wrists under shoulders and knees under hips, in a neutral spine.
2️⃣Take an inhale, then exhale as you begin to tuck the tailbone under, draw the belly towards the spine, articulate through the spine as you round the upper back high.
3️⃣Let the head be heavy as you push the floor away in your Cat pose
4️⃣Then inhale and begin to curl the tailbone up and roll through the spine as you compress the upper spine bone for your cow pose
5️⃣In Cow pose, arms are straight and slightly pulling back to make space for chest to push forward.
6️⃣Repeat this about 10x, and continue syncing breath to movement as you wake up the spine, arms, abs, and mind

How awesome is it that there are so many fitness coaches out there who want to help complete strangers live a healthy lifestyle?! 😍✌️🙌But with so many people, how do you pick the one who is going to help you? 🤪🤔How are you supposed to narrow it down?🙄😏 I don't have the answer hahah 😅but I can tell you, you should go with someone you feel COMFORTABLE with. Someone who you feel LISTENS TO YOU and wants the BEST for YOU. Someone who is giving you OPTIONS and not just ONE choice. Someone who UNDERSTANDS what you're GOING THROUGH. Someone who makes you a PRIORITY.
This is a very personal journey and you should pick a coach who you have that CONNECTION with... Not with someone you HAVE to go with or OUGHT to go with. But someone who you REALLY WANT to work with.
It might not be me....or maybe it is. If you want to know a little more about what I do as a coach and how I run my fitness groups, send me a message. I'll give you details on what you can expect and you can decide if it will be a good fit for you.❤️❤️❤️
