All I have to say is #fuckyes!
.
Virgin @spartan SUPER racers who checked their ego at the door, showed up and conquered 9 miles + 29 obstacles with limited burpees:
Me: 4 burpee sets
Linda: 3 burpee sets,
.
We saw each obstacle for the first time the day of the race and “winged it” knowing our fitness regimen of spinning, HIIT, weight lifting and rock climbing were the winning combo to finish strong!
.
After 3:54 (official time to come) racing in the Texas terrain and blistering sun we left the range with:
Cuts,
Bruises,
Blisters,
Scraps,
Sunburns,
BUT left with the biggest prize which was a huge smile knowing we showed up, finished strong and doing our best together! @erainekochan Proud of YOU, I’m proud of me and super proud of us!

Me and @erainekochan hauling @lifes_athlete back to California! Not sure how much we were pulling, but he was sitting on weight too! We nailed it! SPARTAN here we come!!! More fun with Camp Round Rock in my IG stories!
.
.
So much fun! Got to squeeze @louisa_brisbane who then helped us surprise @lifes_athlete for his 7P class and even before class started tears were rolling down my face so excited to see them and be in their incredible space to do our “thing”. We got to sweat with the best and got some Elite time too! Best Thursday evening ever!
.
More squeezes after the race on Saturday! We love you guys xo.

Any guesses on what my favorite asana is?! I actually play with 2 of them in this #yogatransition.

What’s yours?

On the plane... SUPER Austin @spartan this Cali girl isn’t ready for your hot as hell heat, but I’m bringing a smile, leaving my ego and ready to cross the finish! See you soon!

So I’ll be honest I’ve not even looked at the obstacles for the Super @spartan race this weekend in Austin, but I do know that these bars are one of them. I’ve not tried these things since I was like 10 years old. I was at the gym with some friends today and saw my chance to try even though TRX were hanging. To my surprise I navigated it with moderate ease. I hope to avoid the burpees for this one and ring that damn bell at the end. I know a few obstacles I’ll be doing the burpee dance 🤣. Gonna be a Spartan who just figures it out for the first time 😂💪🏻❤️. No ego, ALL heart!

4 days until Austin! 🙈. Off to T E X A S tomorrow!

For almost 2 years I’ve been working with @danikramos @theironwarrior Iron Warrior Elite Training working more cardio and weight lifting. It’s been such an amazing journey under their guidance and support. They always make themselves available to correct my form and give me a little push when they know I can give just a little more. I’ve grown more mentally and physically stronger along with others who are training with me.
.
The past 6 weeks we’ve amped up our training kick starting our metabolism with a clean diet, jacked up more cardio (thank you @pedalspinstudiosp) and began a regular lifting routine.
.
I started to see small progress after 5 weeks, but this past week is where visually I could really SEE the difference and change especially with the front body image. Body measurements are dropping in the right areas and I’m probably most excited about losing 2 inches from the waistline. I have 2 more weeks ahead and looking forward to seeing where I am after 2 full months! This stronger me also is ready to take on my first Super @spartan race this weekend in Austin, TX with my workout bestie @erainekochan. I’m giggling while I write this because I know I have many rounds of burpees waiting for me for those obstacles I won’t be able to complete LOL! I’ll definitely try my best and regardless will cross the finish line!
.
So cheers to an early #transformationtuesday shout.
.
Extra love to @danikramos who has been my biggest rock in this recent transformation. Dani, you’re seriously THE BEST and know I respect and love you sooooooo much! And extra extra love to my supportive hubby who has been my #1 fan anytime, anywhere! Next month babe we can finally eat out cuz I’ll have a cheat day! I love you.

Update to come in 2 more weeks! Thanks for letting me share my progress with you!
.
Swipe LEFT for side and back progress images too! I had to change bottoms mid way cuz my swim trunks got too big 🤣.

Mom, Thank you for creating me. I am grateful for growing up knowing you always loved me, protected me and worked hard to provide the best for me. Growing up you were a parent that always took the time for me. You were present in my life and I know that investment of time took away from yours. When I wanted to try soccer, gymnastics, cheerleading, track, piano, dance, tennis, basketball, swim and ballet you said “YES, Sora try anything you want.” That life lesson is something that stayed with me until today. I love you Mom!
.
Reflecting back, I’ve always felt somewhat of a selfish guilty feeling not having kids, but as I have grown older I given myself permission to accept my role of “Mother” my life has given to me. My life is been with filled with adventure, great abundance and lots of love. My life didn’t speak to having a human child, but I realize that deep “Motherly” love that continues to speak to me is one that I’ve chosen to share in a different way and that is okay. I choose to be and share all my love to my hubby, my furry kids, building our home, my friends who are like family, my family and honestly to anyone that I choose to invest any moments of my time with. So if you fall into one of those buckets you’ll know why you’re getting the massive Motherly love.
.
So cheers to any kind of “Mother” you are. For me I celebrate ANYONE on this day that chooses to put another soul before their own. #happymothersday Mom and to all of YOU too! Lives are better because of YOU! ❤️ #iloveyouMom

No matter what else I love to do I will always find time for bits of yoga. Yoga anytime, anywhere. Even after an awesome spin class!

Surround yourself with people who inspire you, put a smile on your face and help you be a better human. This little nugget @g.i.jj has grown to be one of my favorite humans. She’s also a nurse, loves to workout, loves to dance when she’s suppose to be super setting weights, fast as shit on her feet and today I found out she’s a little freaking fish! Woman. So much love for you and your spunky spirit! More humans like you please!

Just a friendly reminder on #transformationtuesday that transformation happens from the inside out. Yes, we all want the physical change, meaning the changes we SEE, but the one that happens on the inside is where the real transformation lies. Being strong from the inside will reveals itself on the outside too!
.
After 48 years on Planet Earth I’ve learned a few things that I’d love to share for those going through their own journey of change:
⭐️Be the best you every day, get some rest then try again tomorrow,
⭐️Set short term goals and worry less about how long term ones. When you’re present and focusing on the here and now the later does fall right into place,
⭐️Surround yourself with people who lift you up and know how to be brutally honest with you in a loving way. Hold these nuggets close and worry less about the fly by people who come in and out of your life.
⭐️Write it down. I’m a fan of putting my actions with words on paper. There’s something about writing it down that makes me commit to the process just a little more.
.
I’d love to hear your bits of wisdom! Comment below! Happy #YOU wherever YOU are in your journey.

Gains on the #pullup game. Got me 3 with an 8# ball!
