Running today. From work at 0530, (which was crayzo), to picking up the #bff on time, to the gym. Ironic as the lesson we learned was all about slowing down enough to listen our body. Spent our session today on muscle release and deep stretching. Holy painful like tears in my eyes *{^{%{ painful. So clearly not take taking care of myself and my body. I couldn't find a point that didn't hurt. I don't think Anne Marie could either. I need to listen more and maybe push more gently. I didn't say stop…. just more gently. I am however ravenous. #insearchofprotein #paleomaybe #rrockstarrlife

I posted this awhile back. I think every few months it is an excellent reminder. Searching for motivation has to be personal. And honestly it's so hard sometimes. We are bombarded with so much negativity spewed out constantly, whether obvious or passive-aggressive. Patronizing know-it-alls hiding behind social media masks of perfection. Take a deep breath. Breath deep. Find YOUR space. Ignore the rest. Do your thing whether it's yoga, hiking, walking, power lifting, cross fitting, anything that gets you moving. And keep doing it. Maybe you made new year resolutions and right now maybe they are seeming really far away. Well DONT QUIT. Don't stop. Don't change direction. Stick with it. Regardless of what people are telling you. Breaking the cycle of same is SO HARD. Do it now, and make adjustments later. Our trainer makes us laugh and laugh sometimes. (Sometimes not so laughy) Anne Marie and I started back in September and I'm so proud that we are still going. Still moving towards our goals. Week after week. We adjust and we move. We push each other and expect accountability from each other. We also are there when we fall and when we need a hand up. Keep going. Be patient with yourself. #staythecourse #resolutions #keepgoing #bevibrant #resonate

My mini me and I doing the dang things at the gym. Cardio and chest:back. She may be young but she's fierce like her mama. Keeping up and slaying it. Love you @autumnleaf_lps I am wiped out. That's my week. About 40 hours in three days. About 12,000 steps a day. Two workouts so far two more planned this week. #nurselife #bigthings #sweatsesh #minime #getitQueen #rrockstarrlife

Repost from: @rippedgoddessfitness Mindset is truly everything. Be grateful, kind, and full of grace. When I say these things I laugh because those that know me probably wouldn't associate graceful with me. I'm a pretty tough chick. Grace however, to me doesn't mean the traditional thing. It's means to be filled with calm and quiet happiness. So that when I react to the things in life that happen, the people I encounter, I try my best to react with grace. If that's a smile, quiet, positive energy or even a healthy refusal. It's hard. It's a work in progress every. Single. Day. Sometimes hourly. Sometimes I'm the opposite of grace. But regardless I have to do better each day. I cannot control what other people do, but I can control what I do with what they offer.

Got rocked by today's workout. #wiped Every time we step up, we make progress. In so many areas. Proud of my person. Anne Marie doesn't quit. I wouldn't let her anyways. Nor would she let me think about it. She is in it to win it with me. I don't care about New Years… New whatever…. get your person, get your goals and map it out together. Don't let anyone stop you. It isn't about anyone else. ITS ABOUT YOU. Your journey. Having that person beside you can make the difference when you are so close to giving up. You can be there for each other no matter how different your goals in fitness/ health may be! Ours happen to be the same for the most part. It doesn't matter. Just do it. Right now. Don't chalk it down to later. Text them and commit out loud to doing it. Then follow through. We have come along way in 9 months. And we are just getting going. #sweatsesh #mypersonisthebest #rrockstarrlife

Back to food prep. Tuna, chicken, veggie salads, eggs, and shakes (I have to stop eating crap or doing the other unsuccessful thing I do…. not eat until like 1300) So maybe shakes in the am will solve that. #isopure is still mah fav. Then for real Epsom salt bath, ice pack on my neck for a bit and bed. So far the headache has still been present, I've just been maxing out my excedrine and ibuprofen. No n/v or vision issues so it's working. Let's hope I can get to work easily tomorrow!
