In case you missed it.... #Proud #Rocco #YourTime ♥️

So much to be thankful for. #blessed
Happy thanksgiving to all!

This is a pic from the 2016 Paris grand slam. Jimmy told me this tourney was my test run for Rio; That I should treat it like the Olympics and find a way to win no matter what.
All day I was on fire. Winning all of my matches in dominant fashion. Mentally I was ready To finally win that elusive Paris gold.
In the final I faced my long time rival, Mayra of Brazil. I felt good, I felt relaxed, I felt like I was going to win. But I didn’t. I got bombed about 1:30 into the match.
I still think about that day and I still watch that match more often than I probably should. Although it pains me that I never won Paris, it brightens me to remember how much that loss fueled me for the last leg of my career. I woke up the next morning before the sun was up and went for a run. I didn’t skip a day or a session or a minute of training from that cold February morning until Rio.
Nothing burns hotter than the heat of failure. I was a woman obsessed.
It would be the last match I ever lost.
So just remember- Sometimes the sting is just a wake up call.
The memories aren’t always pretty, but they can always be motivating.

Happy Halloween from the mother of Dragons and the Lord Snow. 🧝🏼‍♀️🤴🏻

“And there will be someone that comes along one day and offers you an entire galaxy when you only expected a planet.” Congrats to my love on moving one step closer to his goal. Together we will conquer a galaxy. ♥️

#tbt we didn’t realize we were making memories. We just knew we were having fun.

A girl should be two things:
Who and what she wants.
Welcome to a new era in mma.

To our fearless leader:
You taught me to believe in myself. You taught me to have confidence. You taught me how to persevere. You have lived your life out loud and always been the example I look to. The world may be inducting you into the hof today, but just know you have always been in my HoF. Not for your career, not because you’re an amazing coach; but because of who you are and what you stand for. You’re my family and I will forever be grateful to have landed at your door 12 years ago.
Congrats Sensei. ♥️ #hof #Family
