Strong women not only feel pain, they accept it, and fight through it. They turn their wounds into wisdom. They take a break to shed a tear, but the dust theirselves off they get back up and fight like they’ve never fought before.
I haven’t moved my body like this for the past nine days and today was not going to be day ten!! Today was my day one for the #coredeforcehybrid doing #mmaspeed2 and it was soooooooo good! Sweat flew and I even blew the biggest snot bubble ever 😂😂😂during the ground to fighter spike😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂it was hilarious for myself so I got a bit cracked up for that spike , so apparently a bit of this head cold is still lingering🙄but ehhh it’s cool!! .
These were all my #moveoftheday because they were so fun and made me feel like a #warriorwoman 💪🏼😊
I decided to do this today. I decided that today will be my day one, are you ready to have you day one? Do you want to have fun with this workout with me or maybe a beginner level or maybe you’re more of a dance workout type of person?

THE STRONG WOMAN. (note: the story of the strong woman that I'm talking about in this post is in the comments. I've run out of space here to post the whole thing.). I really wish that I knew who to credit these powerful words to. I've seen this same piece floating around Facebook for the last year or so, with no credit to an original author. The image that is always used is this beautiful piece by @amandaoleander, so I am regranning her original post so she gets full credit for the imagery. As far as the story below about strong women, if you know who originally wrote this, please let me know so I can credit them.
The words of this story really touch me deep in my heart I am surrounded by strong women in both my personal and professional lives. I know that I am also a strong woman, even if I don't often feel it. My husband has told me that he would never know that I didn't feel good or was hurting because I just power through it. That is both a blessing and a curse. A blessing because it sometimes allows me to get time-sensitive work done, even if I am having a rough health day. But a curse, because it makes it incredibly hard for me to be vulnerable and ask for help when I truly need it. I have struggled immensely with granting myself permission to rest when I need to. It feels like pulling teeth to truly release the pressure that I feel to always do everything perfect. To relinquish control and not have to always know or plan the outcome.
I am a messy work in progress, but aren't we all? So, today, I dedicate this post to all of the amazingly strong women in my life and community -- that means YOU. You are strong. You are powerful. But you also deserve rest, love, comfort, peace, self-care, and self-compassion.

No abuses de una mujer buena, porque el día que decida irse lo hará no importa cuanto pueda estar enamorada.... Valora a la persona que tienes al lado porque para otros ella también es "BELLA" 😘 #singlegirl#onlyme#strongwomen
This is one of the most infuriating words, because it is pervasive and difficult to extinguish. I understand wanting to have a hard body without the extra bulk. Hell, sometimes that's what I want too. Not everyone wants to be a gigantic reservoir for muscle, so let me explain a few things:
1. Adding muscle to any frame is a difficult and slow process. To think that you are going to get massive by lifting heavy once or twice a week is like thinking you can floss your teeth a couple days a week and the dentist won't notice.
2. Without a caloric surplus, you can allay your fear of turning into the Hulk overnight. If you do not take in more calories than you need, you are not going to put on noticeable size. You have to eat more to be bigger. By eating less overall, eating enough protein to support muscle, and lifting weights, magical things can happen.
3. The "toned" look is just muscle. You have to use your muscles and use them a lot if you want it to look like you use them. You aren't adding muscle by only doing a shit ton of cardio or doing resistance training that isn't hard. You have to do hard things to make your body change, even it just means looking slightly more muscular.
4. None of the above points address the real problem here. Just what the fuck is wrong with looking muscular? I am not going to wade into the political and social roots of bullshit like this, but at some point we have to start accepting that being strong is a beautiful thing, regardless of gender.
Lifting heavy stuff is what keeps our bodies sexy, functional, and strong well into old age. Don't fear it, embrace it.
We’ve always been told to set goals. “The best way to achieve what we want in life is to set specific actionable goals.”
“Well, results actually have very little to do with the goals you set and more to do with the systems you set in place- the processes that lead to the results.
The goal ends up the result.
For example: a musicians goal might be to play a new piece, their system would be how many times a day they practice.
Goals are good for setting a direction but systems are best for making progress.
It’s not the goal of winning a gold medal at the Olympics, because isn’t that every Olympians goal? The systems put in place are what leads the athlete to the result”

Started at 5 lbs, now we’re here.
20 lb chest presses today!
I upped my weight from 17.5 lbs last week. I love seeing the progress I am making, and that I can improve my strength by staying consistent.
I was recently asked how I stay motivated. Part of the reason is I know that if I give up, I will lose what I have worked so hard for. Being a coach also helps me stay motivated, because I know people are following my journey.
If you are looking to improve your health, strength, and just feel FREAKING GOOD about yourself, maybe you could give this routine of at-home workouts and healthy portions a try!
My next bootcamp starts July 1st! Commit to 6 weeks with me and change your habits all with my support and guidance! DM me for details! 💖💖💖This is also the last week to save $20, so get on it!
