• pose like all the kids who called you fat in high school are watching •
This post is kinda a big deal to me. I have never identified with the athletes and basically cannot do anything involving balls (ha). That being said, muscles were not part of the picture, until now (also ha). I never thought I could look strong much less actually be strong. Sweat with Kayla has been the tool that worked for me. @kayla_itsines is powerful and so supportive of all women. Through her app, I have been able to navigate a new world of fitness. Unfortunately, having access to the tools you need to get fit isn't enough. @mary_pursell17 was my game changer. She encourages me everyday to WERK. In every way she is my accountability partner. When people ask, "how'd you get so fit?" I respond with my revelation of the importance of having a partner that PUSHES you. Mary, a former collegiate volleyball player, knows how to grind. For a choir girl, like myself, the gym scared the shit out of me. I was very intimidated by the gym, the people, and the scary machines. Mary taught me that you can't compare yourself to the other gym rats. Be the best YOU. You just gotta get beat your yesterday's self. So, all in all, treat your body right, EAT CLEAN, try Sweat with Kayla, and get a Mary!!!
