Let’s get personal on this fine Sunday and talk personal growth, y’all. I HATE running, it’s boring, it sucks, it’s boring, and it hurts my feet but the prize is worth it. There is no pot of gold at the end of this rainbow, nor bragging rights, nor an ascension to the top spot over other competitors - I am the only one competing. This journey began 16 days ago and my goal is to run 100 miles in 100 days. This isn’t a daunting task by any means but one that demands consistency and showing up. I decided to do this (and I mean do, not try as I’ve no intention to fail) as an experiment in health and discipline. To commit to something I knowingly did not want to do in order to see what it produces in me. I desire to be the best version of me I can be and I truly believe few things spur me on toward that goal like doing things I do not want to do. Overcoming my own resistance, conquering my own mind, and pushing my physical body out of its comfort zone all beget growth. Growth is never easy and often not fun while we’re in the midst of it, but it’s always good. I won’t be spamming your IG feed but I will he posting about this experiment from time to time, feel free to follow along if you’d like. All I’d ask is that you’d help keep me accountable and that perhaps you’d find your own challenge to push yourself away from comfort and embrace growth head on. 16 miles down - 84more to go & feeling great. Huge shoutout to @skywellness_ for helping me stay feeling good and on track despite some painful days of adjusting to this regiment. Check them out, visit the link in my bio for a special discount.

This girl right here took me waaay out of my element yesterday, and I am forever grateful for that! 🖤 - I even tried cancelling last minute..and she was like “OHHHH HECK NOO NAT GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD CAUSE YOU’RE DOING THIS SHIT!” @yadiaguayo_ 🤣 - But you guyssss .. not going to lie .. this tested my insecurities to a whole other level. It’s crazy how much doubt we place on ourselves and how much we’re willing to say “nope...i can’t do this” and just walk away! Can you imagine what would happen if you actually got out of your comfort zone .. and did what you kept telling yourself you “can’t” do. Trust me .. you will shock yourself on the amount of things you can and will accomplish. 🔥🙌🏼 - I honestly and truly believe you can conquer anything in life ladies! 🖤 P.S. Dancing a song 50 plus times counts as cardio for the WHOLE week right? #askingforafriend 😂🤣 - #musicvideo #videomusical #thicklatina #thickthighs #dance #buildconfidence #getoutofyourcomfortzone
So today I did something I've never done before and completely fucked it up. I decided August looked a bit empty and in my infinite wisdom stuck in Birmingham's Strongest Man 2019. No space in the 'First Timer' category so went up to 'Novice' ... In for a penny and all that. What a mistake. Log FOHP was a complete bust which set the tone for the day (thanks to a v.tight shoulder and poor strength), DL form was not pretty, Farmers Walk finished pretty strong after my grip failed a few steps in which meant extra seconds I could have afforded not to lose. At this point, due to shite form (fuelled by the bad mood) my back was in bits, shoulder was killing and despite only having two events left, I was fully ready to go home... So I did something I don't usually do. I pulled out, fuck it. Might not have got a medal but at least theres a t-shirt, and the KFC and cheesecake on the way home softened the blow 🤷.As much as I've been told you'll only know what you're capable of when you reach your limit and every failure gives you something to build on, this is shit, anyone who knows me knows that I don't often admit to wanting to have a bit of a tear but today it happened. I can't decide if the moral of the story is to be wiser when picking events or just hide the credit card when you're bored. Although I might have completely fucked it, some of the men and women we saw today were compete machines and the speed they were shifting weight was amazing, definitely an inspiring comp to be on the sidelines for and won't be the last one I'll go to have a gander at... #liveandlearn #challengeyourself #getoutofyourcomfortzone #bsm19 #strongman #strongwoman #strongnotskinny #strongwomen
I'm going to share with you a very important super secret squirrel fact. . Are you ready? . If you wait to "feel like it," you will never do anything. period. . I personally did this for longer than i care to mention. And I do not recommend it! It only leads to regret. . "But i can't do X until Y happens, and Y won't happen until i do Z, but i cant get Z done right now because...." . Don't do that to yourself! if you started last year you'd be there by now. . Well guess what!? Right now is going to be a year ago, then it will be 5 years ago, then 10. . And if you're like i used to be, maybe you constantly say "next time will be different," or maybe you waste even more time beating yourself up for procrastinating. . Knock it off! . You've gotta break the cycle and take back control of your life! . Feelings aren't facts! And the feeling is that, yea sometimes i don't wanna get out of bed, sometimes i don't wanna work out, but the fact is that i still do those things! . Because I want to win! #100to0 . Do you feel like paying bills? Do you feel like fixing your car? Do you still do those things? Of course! . so why not go for the things you want without being "ready" or "Feeling like it." . Your future self will thank you. . If you need an accountability partner or just wanna talk, shoot me a message or comment! . And please share this with one person who has been putting something off. . Cheers!

New Mexico gave us unreal sunrises and sunsets. Excessive heat and the gorgeous Sandia Mountains. Plus we did a Breaking Bad tour. Westward on!

✨SUNDAY REVIEW✨ I love my business. In the past though, it’s often been to the detriment of other areas of my life. That’s why now, every Sunday, I follow Brendon Burchard’s advice and take inventory of the week. I ask myself these three questions: 1 What did you enjoy and learn last week? 2 What are you grateful for? 3 What are some major lessons that you learned? I reflect on all the different areas of my life — from work, friendships and intimate relationships to health, self-development and self-care — and rate myself, set intentions for the week and make a plan. Not happy with how I scored myself for health, for example? I book a spinning class or schedule in time to get out and move my body during the upcoming week. It’s about taking radical responsibility. What we measure, we improve. Happy Sunday ✨
Had so much fun playing at the park today! It was out of my element, but I’m glad I tried some new movements 🙌 No, those burpees are not in slow motion, I was just scared I was going to hit my head or clip my toes! 😂 #parkwod #alwaysplay #fitnesseverywhere #getoutofyourcomfortzone #funfitness #peteacher

Many women are being told to stay realistic, stop dreaming and get "their heads out of clouds," play safe and don't take chances. As a result, the challenges of achieving their dreams can appear so difficult and unrealistic that they start to become less ambitious. A few years back, I met with a headhunter who told me that, "all women want is security." I am not sure that applied to me, but I'd admit many women do. That being said, I recognize there are a lot of statistics showing how hard it is for women to make it to the "top," due to varies reasons, including gender inequality, lack of support resources and self-confidence. When I ask a few women, their reasons are for not living out their dreams, they point out one or more of the following reasons: Lack of Support! Really!!! Let us support each other.

You don't have to go to the other side of the world to find remote country where you can spend days of solitude and need to carry a week's food! The #wicklowmountains can be reached on foot from Dublin and yet provide some seriously desolate and challenging landscapes. #runningthesummits #trailrunning #mountainrunning #mountains #wildcamping #getoutofyourcomfortzone #womeninadventure #womenintheoutdoors #choosemountains #getoutside #fellrunning #ireland

Do you love to have everything planned out or are you more of the spontaneous type? I’m one of the weird ones who actually loves both! I love to geek out on research and planning and making schedules and itineraries. I also love to have no plans at all, and just show up somewhere and go with the flow! So for the first couple of nights of this trip, that’s exactly what we did! We had one day and night in Seattle and one day and night in Vancouver. Usually before traveling somewhere I’ll do a good amount of research and at least have an idea of some places I want to see, eat, things I wanna do, etc. This time, other than dinner with a good friend, we didn’t make any plans at all! And you know what?! We are having the best time so far!! We got to walk around Pike Place Marker, the waterfront and we ended our night at a Mariner’s game that we bought tickets for 20 minutes before it started. So for all your type A super planners out there, I urge you to get yourself out of your comfort zone and do something spontaneous!! Try not making plans and doing the research and all the things ahead of time. Just try and see what happens! My guess is you will be pleasantly surprised with how things turn out!
