Forgot my lunch and was out on client calls anyway so Panera to the rescue today. Turkey chili and chicken ceasar salad. The apple will be my snack later. Feels good to know i can pick healthier options in a pinch too.
what is your go to when you have to eat out?
Good morning!!!! Happy hump day! I'm starting my morning off with my opti-greens 50 from @1stphorm I am loving this product for a few reasons:
1. It has 1 billion CFU so I have been able to eliminate taking a probiotic capsule (I always get pills stuck in my throat). 2. It helps me increase my water intake without consciously thinking about needing to drink more water.
3. It actually tastes good! I've had to mix greens into my protein shake before to try and mask the flavor and texture of them but not anymore!
Do you have any questions about nutrition or supplements? Let me know! #iam1stphorm#1stphormreview
Well, it looks like the gym won't be happening tonight, and it's not looking good for tomorrow either. 😭 My back has been feeling tight the last couple days, but I just assumed it was from traveling and it would go away. Then I went to sit down earlier today and all of a sudden it felt like someone stuck a knife into my lower back. I got some supplies to work on it and hopefully I won't be out of commission for too long. I was hoping to finish this challenge strong. ☹
🌮Tuesday 🌮 😋
I was going to type out a post but I cant think of anything...I have a headache, I'm not eating tacos, but I am proud of how far I've come. So here ya go🖖 .....
PS. I just thought of something..... I'm also proud that I can do push ups now. I broke both of my wrists, at the same time, when I was 12. They were always SUPER weak after that. F#$kin laaaaame. Well now I can actually do push ups with out them hurting 💪 put in consistent work, get results. Its hard if you do it it's hard if you dont... join me and some awesome ladies for the next group 😍 you can do it, I promise. Just get out of your own way. Lemme know🍁🍂K lataaaaa 😎
Is it Friday yet?!? This week has been crazy busy and im feeling pretty overwhelmed. Normally this would lead me to going off the rails and eating a bunch of processed crap, binge watching tv at night, and waking up feeling lime complete shit. I am proud to say my accountability group has me staying on track and as soon as I get this girl to bed im pushing play on my on demand workout. .
What is your biggest struggle to staying/getting on track with health and fitness?? What is holding you back from getting started? .
What if i told you for about $30 you could be included in my accountability group, get a weeks worth of workouts, get an easy realistic meal plan for all us busy folks, get a weeks worth of shakeology superfood shake, get me as your coach helping and guiding you, and have the oppurtunity to kickstart your goals before the holidays.
I think that this is an incredible value for something that is invaluable...your health and happiness❤ Send me a message, comment i want in, or click the link in my bio to fill out the application. I cant wait to crush our goals together!!
"She believed she could, so she did" R.S. Grey .
I think about all the things that people have said to me that have lead me to where I am today. From the high fives and motivational cheers to the put downs and whispers behind my back.
I grew up being told "Just wait... just wait until you stop playing sports, until you graduate from high school, until you have a real job, until your 20s... just wait, you'll get fat too". I was "scrawny" and "little" and was told, "I want to lose weight, but I never want to be as skinny as you. That'd be disgusting!" And "I may be chubby but at least I don't have a big butt like you!" (Well that one back fired on her 💁🏻🍑). .
I've gained a few pounds here and there. I definitely had a stint of binge drinking in college. But I'll be damned if I let anyone tell me who I am or how I am supposed to be. Or that I am predispositioned to be anything other than what I decide to be. .
So I am grateful for both, the naysayers and those who believed in me because both add fuel to the fire. #iam1stphorm
Nothing truly special happened today but it was a good day. I got myself ready more than normal, i got organized at work, Abi was in a good mood and super cute, i listened in on a national call, old team call, and our team's weekly call today and learned great information to grow my business from all 3, Abi went to bed without a fuss, i got a good workout...the kind that gives you a high afterwards, and im meal prepped and ready for bed. Im feeling super accomplished today! Im proof that anyone can succeed with this company and these workout programs. I just want to take all the busy, tired moms under my wing and be their biggest cheerleader because you can do it too!!!
Goooood Evening #ashletes so I was cutting it close to Mom duties at the gym today so I had a brilliant idea 💡... figured after strength and core I’d save my 45 minute cardio on the lovely running trail at my kids gymnastics 🤸🏽♂️... so his gymnastics STARTS at 6:30 and of course we were late so I started the run at 6:50... by the time I made it to my turn around I looked and the trail was super dark and lonely and we’ve all seen that movie 🎥 🔪🔪🔪 so I decided to turn up and run back on the road ... where of course it was only partly side walked... and I forgot my running shoes lol 😆 I mean I had my nanos on, but my shins don’t like running in them ... but all in all not so bad for improvising the route and stopping at a random laundromat to pee 😂🤣 took me an hour on the nose 👃
Day 6 Come Alive Challenge: Dissolve each threat to happiness and end the fight for heart-centered attention... What happens if I stop fighting the things that seem to fight with me? Instead of trying to control the things I can't change, I welcome each moment with my own personal love statement. ~Kahn
Words have the power to infuse or diffuse. A love statement can diffuse any negative thought, word, or deed that doesn't serve your heart center.
Use the words that you never heard but always wanted to hear to open up your heart to love ❤️. Say these phrases to discover the words you've always wanted to hear:
You are enough
You are worthy of being seen and heard
There is a reason you are here
You are beautiful
You are perfect just the way you are
I am so sorry for all I have done to you
I'm sorry I didn't consider your feelings
I was wrong
I am blessed to have you in my life
Today's challenge is to offer the gifts my heart 💚 has waited to receive for far too long. Instead of wishing upon someone or something else to give me what I want, the great "I" will empower my heart to love freely.
This was me exactly 2 years ago. Day 1 of my fitness journey. I had no clue where I was heading, but I knew I was not where I wanted to be. It has not been an easy road, and honestly there were so many times I wanted to give up. Every accomplishment and goal reached was also accompanied by many, many struggles; from the glamour and spotlight of competing to hiding in the darkest moments of dealing with binge eating disorder. What really started as a physical transformation, has turned into the biggest walk of faith. God has completely changed me the past 2 years, and even more so the last 8 months when I decided to let Him be the leader of my life. Without Him I have no clue where I'd be, because operating on my own was leading me the complete wrong way. His endless grace, love, guidance, and strength keep me going. The girl you see standing in these pictures is not the girl I am today. I have learned so much about myself, and I am proud of how far I've come. I changed my life for this, and I wouldn't have it any other way. So seriously, "do something today your future self will thank you for". Let today be your Day 1 ✨ #fitnessjourney#transformyou#healthylifestyle#faithandfitness#lifechanges#icanandiwill#bodybuilding#believeinyourself
🎶🎵🎶🎵Okay #ashletes this may have made me giggle a little more than it should have 🤔😂 But seriously though who is doing MY Phase V?! Cause I just left the gym at almost 10 last night after destroying my Back, Biceps, and Legs then flip to Monday to find Back and Biceps 🤕 *eats some ibuprofen, sprays some bio freeze... proceeds to get ready to hit the gym* 🤷🏼♀️💪🏼👱🏼♀️ Sorry Back And Biceps I’m just trying to make you better... #magnifyyou#transformyou#ashleyhorner#ashleyhornertransformyou#ashleyhornertransformation
Who's ready to crush this week? In all honesty I did not sleep well last night Abi's getting her canine teeth and she hasn't been sleeping again, but I took some extra time to get ready this morning and I feel great. I swear blow drying my hair and putting on little lipstick makes me feel like a whole different person. It's finally cooled down enough here to start wearing fall clothes too.
Took today to unplug, relax, and recharge. Im so ready for week 2 of my 21 day bootcamp. Im really going to push myself this week to eat really clean and give it my all in my workouts. Im putting myself first this week, which wont be easy.
I have a free 5 day virtual accoutability bootcamp starting next Monday 10/23, but will be opening it up this friday for prep. You will get a meal plan, grocery list, peek at the workouts i do, motivation, tips, accountability, and of course prizes!! I only have a few spots left to fill so comment below "I want in", send me a DM, or click the link in my bio to fill out an application to be added❤
And that wraps up Week 9 of @ashley.horner #TransformYou Challenge! I am following #MagnifyYou and I have to say this was the toughest week yet. The post-cardio session after an intense workout was definitely a challenge! And on top of that just had one of those weeks. We all have them. A week that seems like every day another curve ball is thrown at you. In reflecting on the week, I feel like maybe I did not give it my all every workout, and that's okay. Instead of beating myself up over it, I am using that to fuel myself for next week. Week 10 starts tomorrow. The final week of the challenge!!! The training is the same next week as it was this week, so now I know what I need to do to improve, to achieve my own goals!
Working on that mind-muscle connection.
I think the hubby read the caption on my last post because he finally gave in and took a few pics today at the gym. Sadly this was the best one 🙈
I love this exercise because it hits the biceps differently than most others. Step out and away from the cable and let your arm be pulled back towards the pulley. Then, keeping your upper arm still in that position, bend at the elbow and curl the weight. Go a bit lighter than you're used to because this is really challenging.
You can get a similar effect by leaning back on an incline bench and letting your arm dangle down at your side, somewhat behind you. Again, keep your upper arm still and curl, bending at the elbow. 💪🏼 #iam1stphorm
This was my workout partner this morning. we had a very productive Saturday even though it was rainy all day...cleaned, laundry, meal prepped, visited a friend and her baby, went shopping, and now im spent!!
