My friend posted this on instagram yesterday, I couldn’t agree more.
So I took it and re-posted it. –Thanks, Deb!
Let me tell you how much I LOVE this.
As a group fitness instructor, trainer, nutrition guru I love to introduce people to health.
Do I consider myself an athlete?
Sure. In a kb swinging, jumping, kipping sort of way…
This might sound crazy but I feel the most beautiful after a workout like this.

In a no make-up, my hair tied back, sweating, and out of breath sort of way.
Because after I accomplish a workout like this, no matter how long it takes me, I take pride in the fact that I finished it, I fought through every rep and kept going when the going got tough. After doing something hard or lifting heavy shiz, I feel better about me. Weird. I know.
When I watch or workout next to my friends that are going through the same fight it brings us together like PB and jelly. ---> how is that for a simile?
So, the point I’m getting to here, is to invite a friend. Invite that person to do something for themselves, to be an fitness athlete. If not with working out, maybe a healthy meal or recipe? Everyone deserves the feeling of accomplishment.
For example, when we eat well, its no surprise we feel better about ourselves, and when we get a good workout in, we feel better about ourselves.—It doesn’t have to be a hard workout or a long run. Just move! And I don’t mean from the couch to the kitchen.
I like to push my limits and l like to push others to theirs. I want others to achieve anything they put their mind to, to think of themselves as an athlete, not just a fancy ornament.
What do you do to feel better about yourself?
Shopping spree? Manicure? Sweat sesh?
Tonight, I ended up subbing a body pump class at skills and they had a Body Combat launch afterwards. These chicks know how to fight. I stuck around for two tracks then peaced out.
Dinner came right out of tupperware again.. fancy nancy.
I also had some sweet potato that I inhaled while the tilapia was cooking.
I have a new favorite flavor of Mrs. Dash!
I am huge fan of these seasonings, no salt and gives a blast of flavor to your meat/veggies. Have you tried them? I just get it at Smiths.
Now, Brent and I have some modern family to catch up on… (love this show!)
The debate tonight gave me a great idea for a post… or 3, in a sort of way.
Have a great night y’all.
