Snow day from school doesn’t mean rest day!! Did “Fight Gone Bad” today, fun, fast and furious!! Something I don’t talk about (because I’m terrible about it) is nutrition. The hubs and I are meal prepping and eating healthy for January, as best we can! Setting up a plan is important but remembering to be flexible if the unexpected occurs is also important! It’s OK for a cheat meal on occasion ;) #practicewhatyouteach #peteacherlife #getfit #crossfit #girlswholift #fightgonebad #eathealthy #struggletostrength

Yesterday was a challenge, we did “Bear Complex” with increasing weight, 5 sets of 7 reps. One rep is: power clean, front squat, press, back squat, press. I was able to increase, 15-55# . It’s not a lot of weight but I am feeling soooo much better with my squats, it’s a far cry from 6 months ago!  Pictured above are my awesome 2nd graders, I figured ya’ll don’t get enough of their cute faces! #peteacherlife #practicewhatyouteach #elementaryPE #crossfit #fitlife #fitkids #getfit #girlswholift #struggletostrength #bearcomplex

My shoulder injury flared up so I have been modifying exercises and doing some shoulder work. My quads and triceps are weaknesses in my main lifts so I am increasing accessory volume for them. This year is also a year of transition for me that I have been over-stressing about. Meditating, and trusting that God will provide. .

I’m a bundle of nervous energy as I start teaching my first Orchid Story class next week. This intention is already helping to reign me in, focus and … breathe. Sometimes (often maybe?) breathing is the Next Right Thing.

🤔Have you ever had to make an extremely small amount of money stretch until your next payday? I'm talking like $10 or less! 🙋🏽I know I have!

I used to be the QUEEN of scraping change💰! Digging in my car seats and all!

But I got real TIRED of living like that😤! Believe me I'm not rich...but I have opened my mind to a new way of thinking and become wiser by choosing to DO SOMETHING about it!

My SOMETHING was starting a home-based business 💁🏽‍♀️! Monthly commissions, weekly bonuses💰 and daily cash 💲are what changed the game for me and it can change the game for you!

Don't let another pay period come where you're living off spare change...This biz has been a blessing to me and I want to pass the same blessing down to you!💚 •

Life doesn’t always go as planned. You will be tested. You will ask why. You will see the darkness. But, when you choose to grow through the struggles you will always find the light. It’s trusting that everything happens for a reason even when you may never understand the reason. It’s knowing you are strong enough to get through it. It’s rising above when everyone around you expects you to sink. It’s letting yourself feel all the feelings, but not feeling sorry for yourself. It’s realizing that you can’t control what happens, but you can control how you react. So, no matter what life throws at you remember that it’s a just a chance to get stronger. #struggletostrength #gritandgrace #iwillsurvive #happensforareason #liveandlearn #simplybee #noexcuses #comeoutstronger #mindset #growthroughwhatyougothrough #fridayfeels #dailyinspo

Very excited for 2 reasons: 1) it was 63 outside this afternoon and I got to drive home with my windows down and 2) today was by far my best workout since moving to Virginia. I didn’t crush any PRs but it felt great. Great coaching (thanks @leggymeggy20 🙌🏼) and more so I felt improvement. 5 sets 3 overhead squat, I got to 55# AND I feel like I am finally beginning to fully squat, with good form while adding some weight, which is huge for me 💪🏻 wrapped up with 21-15-9 sumo deadlift high pull + ohs (45 then 35#). Gotta keep pushing and working #practicewhatyouteach #peteacherlife #getfit #crossfit #squats #girlswholift #struggletostrength

☕👌💪Meal prep tip!💪👌☕
Make full fat coconut milk ice cubes for your morning smoothies or (iced) bulletproof coffee.

Why coconut milk? 
Healthy fats - 🏃‍♀️Lasting Energy🤸‍♀️ - Stable Blood Sugar (fewer midmorning cravings!) Super convenient and they'll keep much longer in the freezer than in the fridge.
Transfer cubes to a zip lock after they solidify to avoid freezer burn!

Not sure if my nose is red from my workout or the 40ft walk to my car in 20 degrees 🤣 5 x 5 bench press, completed last set at 85# which made me happy as its close to my 1rm!! Then “JT” kicked my @$$ or I should say upper body! 21-15-9 handstand push-ups (mod on box), ring dips (mod on boxes) and pushups (on knees) finished 15:49... The struggle was real! #practicewhatyouteach #peteacherlife #crossfit #getfit #girlswholift #struggletostrength

To be like the  mountains: Carved & shaped by forces that have the potential to break them, but remaining strong & unbreakable, even though they have been changed. There is an unspoken strength, something so beautiful about things that endure. It’s the sharp & jagged imperfections that make them so breathtaking.Let me be like the mountains 🏔🏔🏔#wordslikehoney #grandtetonnationalpark #empowerment #endurance #struggletostrength #neverbroken

Meeting @shaunt is still one of the best moments of my life. I'm so glad I got to meet this extraordinary man. I can't believe the connection we had. It was so real. So honest. So emotional (for me at least). This took me forever to post. So I had to cut back on some of the pictures. I truly truly truly hope I can connect with you again my friend. I'm so happy you are a father now 😁 I've been following and it's just beautiful. 
I aspire to inspire to the extreme that you do. It's changed so many physically, but it only instilled in me the mental power to REALIZE...I am unstoppable, and I can help many as well. Much love 😍❤

Sometimes workouts seem like they are going to kill you, and you fly through... like yesterday. Today, looked not too bad and I just about died. Hit my 80# 1rm front squat with a 3sec hold at the bottom and that’s my sticking point for now. Then 21-15-9 kettle bell swings + 400 meter run at the end of every round. Died. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger right?! Ending my way too short week of winter break off right 💪🏻 also- check out my new knee protection 😍 Christmas present curtesy of my best workout buddy and husband ❤️ #practicewhatyouteach #peteacherlife #crossfit #getfit #girlswholift #struggletostrength

“Where there is strength there is struggle.” Motivational words from @autumncalabrese this morning as I pushed through one of her epic workouts called AAA. These words can be used and plugged into any piece of your life, in the gym clearly there is struggle that is leading to strength. But using what I learn from my emotional take always from my workouts in my everyday life as a mother, a wife, sister, friend, daughter, employee, to use as I coach others to their own fitness success is key! My morning routine of wake up and workout has taken me to new heights and made me a stronger women within the struggles of lifting weights at 4AM to mastering motherhood and beyond. Life isn’t easy, fitness isn’t easy, but if you are willing to stick with the struggle for a bit to get to the strengths you will be forever changed: stronger, kinder, wiser. .

Life isn’t easy, fitness isn’t easy, but if you are willing to stick with the struggle for a bit to get to the strengths you will be forever changed: stronger, kinder, wiser. . . . . #instaquote  #thursdaymotivation  #struggletostrength  #wisewords  #dontgiveup  #successquotes  #successfulwomen  #fitnessmotivation  #autumncalabrese  #80dayobsession  #staythecourse  #beachbody  #beachbodycoach  #coachquotes  #amandafordfitness  #believeinyourself

If I can workout at 6am I can get through the day of crazy kiddos almost on break?! Today we did 3rm front squat, I got 75# (my last 1rm was 80!!) but our WOD crushed my soul, or my lungs, or something... looking forward to 11 days tonresr and refocus on me and get ready for a super fit new year 💪🏻 #practicewhatyouteach #peteacherlife #getfit #crossfit #elementaryPE #struggletostrength
Chalk and sweat kids, thats what 6am is all about! 1-2-3 strict press, push press and push jerk, got to 60# for 1rm on strict... followed by 20min amrap 18 box jumps, 15 knees to elbows and 12 pull-ups (modified for me), got 4+21 💪🏻 getting back in routine feels amazing, just in time for 11 days off work 🤣  This week I am really missing my @crossfit_9110 fam (@kristen.martinez0509).... new gym, new people, new everything is always hard. #practicewhatyouteach #getfit #peteacherlife #crossfit #girlswholift #fitfam #struggletostrength

A gentle reminder that a misstep isn’t a step backwards. If you’re feeling discouraged, look at your journey from the beginning to now, and see that you have indeed come a long way. Struggles turn into strength. ✨

I love the holidays even though it's a reminder that I mourn an entire family that is still alive.  This will be Christmas #5 no contact, sometimes the healthiest decisions still hurt.  I miss the big gatherings, but most of all I miss a sense of belonging to a family.  But the trade off is my health and wellbeing and there is no regrets when it comes survival.  #ptsd #toxicfamily #narcissisticabuse  #childabuse #holidaystruggle #strength #resilience #staystrong #nocontact #flyingmonkeys #cptsd #struggletostrength

Several times this week people have approached me at the gym to tell me I have put on a lot of weight in the past few weeks and enough is enough yes I did a bodybuilding show and was down to 119 pounds 6% body fat that is NOT maintainable year round that is not in line with my current goals of chasing a 405 squat and deadlift in 2018 I started my fitness journey powerlifting and that's the sport where my heart lies it is never okay for you to make negative comments about someone's weight and even if it wasnt intended to be negative think before you speak you are telling a girl who was overweight her whole life who is just coming back into powerlifting after doing a show and is in that awkward phase of yeah you have put on weight but the strength isn't there yet that she is noticeably heavier meanwhile what you dont know is behind closed doors she struggles with binge eating followed by starving herself to compensate for it and your comments only fuel that fire truth is I dont have it all together I'm struggling mentally and fighting to find the balance #honestyhour #struggletostrength #fitchick #bodybuilding #powerlifting #girlswithmuscle #girlswholift #rawpost #fitness #weightlossjourney #brainsurgerysurvivor #ihadbrainsurgerywhatsyourexcuse

Growing up as some who has disabilities (dyslexia, Fetal alcohol syndrome) I felt very alone and alien. I slowly began too realize that my disabilities would always be a part of who I am but not all that I am. Let’s pull back the vail on are different abilities-throw shame and bullying to the wind and live are worth.
