Self limiting beliefs. Let’s talk about them..
When I vowed to be become a better me, I started to consciously realize how much I was holding myself back.
I still struggle with it every day!
This morning I looked at my workout, saw that it was 50mins and said, “I can’t get through it”
I caught myself And I changed my “I can’t” to “I CAN” and “I WILL”
During my workout I noticed there were certain moves that I used to be able to do but no longer can. Instead of feeling defeated, I used that to fuel myself and gave it my all!
Point is, we face self limiting beliefs every day. But it takes one thought, then one decision to overcome them.
You have all the power within you. Dig deep & let it shine
Day two down!
I'm currently spending all day doing amazing stuff and not making videos or taking photos. I'm at an acro immersion in Bristol doing 6 hours of cool stuff a day, in fact. It's so good
Here's me in the lunch break using whatever shreds of energy I have to enjoy my very recent new skill of being able to get my feet off of the floor in an L-position. Now to be able to relax my neck and stop gurning (And that's my non-straightenable leg! Working on my plantarflexion too, don't worry )
That moment someone is wearing the same shirt as you, likes the same ice cream, or even has the same dentist!! Don't you get stoked?? Suddenly they BELONG cuz you relate!!
Guys, there are A LOT of great workouts out there, personal trainers, and endless info.
I will STILL freak out when someone else says they Love THESE workouts too, MY trainers!!! Cuz it changed my life, & therefore they are the best in my biased opinion.
Laughing at myself in the beginning because I knew I was about to look silly
No worries though, I did this workout at my house without anyone there to judge
Not going to lie, I feel super cool throwing punches in the air and I know I’ll only get better from here!! It felt a little awkward at first but your girl really got into it after that! 🤪
I’m doing this program with 3 other ladies and we are about to fight our way into 2018 like
Join the fight or not, we will still be here having fun and learning to improve ourselves each day! (But I’d much rather have you join us!!)
Sitting by the fire, coconut water and laptop in hand 🥥

I’m putting together some amazing resources for myself and the ladies in our Gift of Fitmas online challenge!!
Mocktail ideas, Holiday recipes, and more exciting things that I’m going to try keeping a secret 🤫
It’s day 1 for all of us tomorrow and I can’t wait to cheer everyone on! no waiting until the new year, it starts NOW
Hello Instagram! today marks 4 weeks of going to the gym regularly. While the visual progress isn’t anything super noticeable, I can’t express how much better I feel physically! My first time working out I was on the elliptical for 15 minutes (at a very low level) and I thought I was dying, no joke. Now I spend an hour at the gym AT LEAST, and can do more vigorous workouts than I started off with. I had to push myself the first few times and thought about giving up or cutting my workouts. I’d think to myself “I’ll just stop now- there’s only 5 minutes left” but I didn’t let myself stop there and I’m super proud of myself! I can’t wait to start actually seeing more results, but for now I’m super excited that I’m actually in much better shape! #workoutmotivation#beginnerfitness#4weekprogress
Try this regression of a simple yoga flow to start your day and wake up your back!
The back is part of your core, and the core is where all movement stems from. In fact your abs exist just to protect and stabilize your spine. So the back is really important. This is a feel-good stretch, so do whatever you need to do with it to make it your own.
Benefits of filming a workout is the ability to critique, make adjustments, and improve. Focusing on nailing form for deadlifts as weight continues to be added. I feel like my spine could be more neutral and my movement more fluid. Your thoughts?
I had ORIGINALLY planned this really fun workout video for you all today, I’m still not feeling too hot so - here is a video of my last program, one of my FAVORITE movies (sans workout bench, cuz you know mine is wobbly AF )
I've nearly finished moving back into my bedroom/playground My son and I (and anyone else who comes in!) are already doing lots of extra play just because there's space and the toys are so accessible. I didn't even know I could do these but while playing I did a set of 6 and then a set of 3
If you struggle with regular exercise or doing yoga at home, think about the space you have and whether you can make it inviting for movement. Can you keep any equipment out and in position? Can you keep the floor clear so your exercise doesn't require you to do any tidying? A small change might make all the difference to your consistency
I hope you are FREE Sunday night!!!?? Because if you ARE, I would for you to join me!! I’m going to be chatting LIVE with some peeps who are interested in hearing more about the latest fitness program coming out in just a few weeks!!
I’m going to be DIVING ♀️into this program headfirst when it comes out and I CANNOT wait!!! These Test group Participants got some truly AMAZING results!! .
Finally a program that is not only going to give me a nutrition plan put together By a dietitian AND personal trainer, is not only going to tell me WHAT to eat in a given day, it’s actually going to tell me WHEN to eat, how to space my meals apart for maximum results, What are the best foods to eat before a workout, after a workout, at the beginning and end of the day. AND it’s primary focus is flattening ______the abs and toning the booty!! Sounds good to me!!
The New Year can certainly bring a New YOU if you are ready for it!!

I'm relatively sure the represents some L-sit gainz, but as I can't find an older video for reference you'll have to take my word for it I reckon my legs are a bit higher and my hands are closer to my hips. You're seeing my unstraightenable leg here but I think the straightness of the other knee was better too. If you're an L-sitter then hit me up with feedback!
With no need to be a gymnast, why do I work on these things? Because every time I work on something I prove to the negative voices in my brain that they're wrong. I don't even have to improve, I just have to keep trying, to keep working on things that don't come easily to me. Every time I do I'm showing my negative self-talk that I'm not the person it thinks I am... And it looks cool on Instagram, obviously
I worked out for almost a year before I joined my first challenge group. I was seeing changes in my body, but was disappointed in how long it took and I still wasn't really satisfied with my results. Looking back, I realize I was cheating left and right. I allowed myself to believe that I didn't have enough time in the day to complete my workout or I was too busy to cook dinner. If I skipped a workout or ate Taco Bell, I only had myself to answer to. And let me tell you I am all about the 'treat yourself' life when I'm left to my own devices.. (Hello #shopaholicproblems )
My problem, and the problem of most people out there struggling to get into shape, was that I didn't have anyone there to hold me accountable. Sure, my boyfriend would ask why I wasn't working out that evening, but he always accepted my excuses. It wasn't until I joined my first challenge group and finally had a group of people there to keep me honest about how hard I'm working and when I'm cheating myself. As soon as I had people to answer to every day, I saw results... AND FAST! Seriously guys, this accountability thing WORKS!
Have you been trying to get into (or back into) shape and are drowning in your own excuses? Could you benefit from having a team of people there to cheer you on and keep you honest? I'm now enrolling for my 2018 Kickoff Challenge - New Year, New You! You won't want to miss this! It's time to leave 2017 in the past and become exactly who you've been dying to be in 2018! Space is limited, so message me or fill out the form linked in my profile ASAP for the deets!
