Lots of people to thank for helping me get to and through this crazy fun weekend. I'll start with this girl though! Little sister, thank you for being my very own personal makeup artist yesterday (and on several other occasions). For spending literally the whole entire day by my side and helping me with anything I needed after waking up at five and spending two hours doing my hair and makeup. You did a perfect job. Thank you, @oaklibaker I felt like a beauty queen. πŸ‘ΈπŸ½ #NPCUtah #AetherArmy #BeautyQueen

100 lb. squat clean PR! I'll hit 105 lb. next time. I started crossfit 2 months ago after 9 years of being a skinny cross country runner. Although people at the gym call me a stick, maybe one day I'll have some real muscle πŸ™πŸ» #aetherarmy #aetherbarbell #utahfitfam #crossfit #squatclean

The Shredded Megan πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ Feeling very grateful today ❀️☺️ The time has come and I wanted to say THANK YOU to my main squeeze πŸ‘‰πŸ» my coach @aether777 for all that you have done and sacrificed for me (and my teammates) the time and work you have put in to helping us be our own best - doesn't go unnoticed. I don't know how you deal with 4 girls in a deficit, emotions wack, nagging at you daily and you still haven't killed us off... yet haha πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ You are an incredible person inside and out and we are truly lucky to have you. Thanks to my teammates, friends, family and most importantly my boyfriend 😘 for being so supportive, kind, understanding and patient with me over these last few weeks. Competition prep is like nothing I've ever experienced before and I couldn't have done it without the support of all of you! I feel so blessed. Thank you again :) I love you all!

Sitting 2 days out and couldn't be more excited for this weekend and having the opportunity to compete with my team in Miami. Then some much needed r&r with the crew! βœŒπŸ»οΈβ˜€οΈπŸ˜ŽπŸ‘™πŸŒ΄β€οΈ #blessed #teamaetherbuilt #2daysout #NPCnationals #NPCbikini #competitor #grateful #letsgo #imready #functionalfitness #crossfit #bodybuilding #olympiclifting #weightlifting #IIFYM #science #hybridathlete #flexibledieting #leanmachine #healthy #lifestyle #goals #shredded #fitfam #r&;r #beachtime #thankyou #aetherarmy

<insert inspiring quote here>

Here's a nice little picture of me succeeding on a rope climb... which I want to point out is a semi deceptive representation of the day. We had a mock comp and it was hard for me. Mentally and emotionally I struggled and it affected my performance (which resulted in an internal pity party and a bit of an all day cycle of internal abuse). Yes, I had victories... but I also got a big fat ZERO on a WOD that I "should've" been able to get through because I couldn't hit the beginning snatch movement well below my 1 rep max. It sucked, I cried.
Idk why I'm posting this other than to just say we all post things that make our lives look so awesome when in reality we all have a shitty time sometimes. But keep on keeping on cause those are just moments in between successes. And also to just remind myself that I actually did have a great day with people I freakin LOVE who had major victories of their own and deserve positivity and love and support like they give me. #lovemygym #aetherarmy

It's crazy how a year ago I couldn't even squat with an empty bar above my head. I lacked the mobility, strength and stability to do so , and now my 1 rep max for an overhead squat is 130 lbs! In the time I was given to clean and overhead squat for two reps I hit 110 lbs at the @crossfit4cysticfibrosis competition.
Our bodies are incredible and capable of so much. And even though our progress may slow down on one thing , there is always more we can work on and work towards.

Milestone today: Tried strict handstand push-ups for the first time today . So excited to have been able to do them! Got 10 unbroken , and 30 total .πŸŽ‰πŸ’ͺ

My soul... and body did a little happy dance when he showed up to watch me. πŸ€— He gets to see me workout all the time but he knew this was a competition ... as soon as I was done he said , "Did you win?" And I told him no but I was having fun and that's what mattered... his response, "why?" πŸ˜‚ He's so competitive . Maybe in a few years lol ... And for real, he's not even 4 years old yet and is more than half my height. 😫

Today we fought in the name of #cysticfibrosis ... and what an amazing cause to come together for. This was my second time competing in this comp... I'm a completely different athlete than I was then... and it still kicked my butt. Always will. That's what it's about ... suffering through a few workouts to fight for those suffering day in and day out. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜… I love this Aether fam that I get to be apart of and the entire CrossFit community. ❀️πŸ’ͺ @crossfit4cysticfibrosis @aetherbarbell #draesdreamteam #crossfitforcysticfibrosis #65roses #crossfit #goodtimes #aetherbuilt #aetherarmy #fitlife #fitfam #dreamteam

May is #cysticfibrosis awareness month and today I'm rocking my shirt from last year's #65roses Crossfit competition to show some support.🌹 .
.
Next month I'll be competing in the #65roses Crossfit competition again to raise money for the #cysticfibrosisfoundation and it seems as though there are handstand walks!! I've been practicing a bit trying to strength and find my center... time to take it up a few notches so that I can participate in this movement during the WOD. πŸ’ͺπŸ€ΈπŸ½β€β™€οΈ #rogue

It was less than a year ago that squatting with an empty barbell over my head made me feel like I was going to break. I had never done it and I lacked the stability, strength and mobility to do the move. Little by little I've added weight and have only even tried 87 lbs once and that was yesterday. Today I told myself I would get a 1 rep max of at least 100 because my jerk max is 130 lbs . I kept pushing and hit a body weight overhead squat at 115 lbs. πŸŽ‰ I told myself once I faced my fear of having that heavy weight over me like that... that I would finally make some progress with my snatches and I'm determined to get strong in this position. I told myself I would get this and I fought hard to make it happen . .

First weight shown 105 then my max at 115 lbs . @aetherbarbell πŸ’ͺ
