13.1 💃✔️ imagine this: running on the sand barefoot, sea breeze blowing in your face / left ear: @odesza’s “la ciudad” / right ear: sound of the ocean’s waves; you are home 😌

the run feels A LOT better once you stop tapping your watch every minute to check the numbers #letyourmindrunfree

Was it perfect? Not really. Did I get it done? You bet ✌🏻 there are a hundred other things I want to be and could be doing on a Friday night when I get home from work (wine is one of them). But I laced up my shoes put on my workout clothes and got to it. I’m a priority in my own life. 30 minutes I really couldn’t come up with a good enough excuse to me.
Thanks fit club ❤️

How are you speaking to yourself? The words you use when you talk to yourself matter.
I’ve wasted the last year being downright mean to myself because I no longer look the way I did in this photo last March. That’s not ok. So I’m changing it.
I’ve started thinking how the person I love most in my life would speak to me about myself. Nana took her last breath looking deeply into my eyes, and I’ve been imagining looking at myself through her eyes in that moment. I realized her words wouldn’t match mine over this past year, and it broke my heart.

How did she see me? I can venture a safe guess and say it’s the exact opposite of how I’ve been seeing myself. She would say I’m passionate, loyal, strong, dedicated, smart, a hard worker and funny as hell. And she would say she’s proud of me. So why am I telling myself otherwise?

It’s hard to love ourselves all the time, even a majority of the time. So try changing your perspective. Look at yourself the way your most cherished loved one looks at you. I promise it will change things for you. It already has for me.
Tell me something you love about yourself!! 👇🏼 Even if it’s something small. Tag a friend to join in, too! Because we all deserve to accept, embrace and love ourselves exactly as we are. I’m working on it too; we can do this together 💛 #iChooseToBeWell

sup fam i haven't worked out lately because i've been super depressed and so super tired this past week and now recently i've gotten a chest infection also sooo 🙃🙃 i really miss it tho def gonna climb back on by monday!
but here's a pic of me cheesin' at a wedding i went to last week in the meantiiiime 😀💗

Gimme all the SWEAT ✌

So I did a thing today - a thing *way* outside my comfort zone - 🔥hot pilates🔥 with my jet setting, boss mom babe-ing, surfer gal pal, and newly minted pilates instructor Lori @llangona

What is hot pilates?

Think classical pilates (glutes and core), and add squats, lunges, burpees, and more...all in a heated and humid classroom.

What's a hot pilates class like?

My 1 hr Power Pilates class opened with a bridge series which was a great way to fire up the glutes.🔥🍑🔥 Lori turned things way up and kept my body guessing with planks, burpees, single leg deadlifts to knee raises (unweighted), mountain climbers, squats, lunges, bicycle crunches, V-ups, crunches, etc. I loved how the class had a ton of variety - I was never bored and my core was *always* engaged. •
Will you try it again?

Definitely! This was only my 2nd time *ever* doing hot pilates and getting used to the heat is still something I'm working on. That said, I loved how my whole body (including my recently tweaked back) relaxed. I felt flexible and my muscles were more than ready to work.💪 Lori brought the heat with her 80s playlist - I was totally rockin' out and she kept me smiling as sweat poured from every last pore! Bonus? First month @purepoweryoga is only $40 for unlimited classes. Perfectly affordable for this newbie.👌

If you're looking for something out of the box and want to improve your strength and flexibility, give a @purepoweryoga a try and get soaked #fitfam!

Lisbon, you’re shaping up to be one of my favourite eating holiday cities so far! 🍽

Bit of land and sea in this perfect meal: possibly the most tender flavourful pork 🐖 shank with a smokey broad bean stew for him, and a fresh lemony octopus 🐙 with crushed sweet potatoes 🍠 for her. •
More sides than we needed, but the veg 🥗 were nice and light balancing out the meal (and if I’m being honest, I’d be way out of my comfort zone not having veg with my meal😳)

Commenting how fabulous the meal was and how full our bellies were, we remembered that @afblanc said we couldn’t leave @restaurantepapacorda without having the dark chocolate 🍫 mousse. Somehow we made room the decadence. 🤤

Glutes and hamstrings left me looking like I fell into a pool buttt [NOTHING] compares to the shear exhaustion of yard work! I learned how to use a weed wacker today - it may look like a drunk person edged but IT’S DONE! 😂🤗 I hope you all have some great MDW plans! You can find me on the couch binge watching Silicon Valley and double fisting jalapeño chips! ✌🏻

„Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom.“ - Viktor Frankl

No mat, no problem💁🏽‍♀️ I usually end up focusing more on yoga during holidays because it can be done anywhere - grass or sand. Grateful for my time here but excited to be home soon and my regular routine🌺💦

One of the most common questions I hear is in regards to laying on your back during pregnancy. Often first time mums are worried when they even wake up on their backs during the night let alone if they were exercising on their back. So what are the current recommendations?
.
.
Current guidelines from sports medicine Australia recommended it's safe to lay supine (on your back) up until 28 weeks pregnant (third trimester).
.
Its important to remember this is a blanket rule and its best to understand the guidelines but also apply common sense. There has been more research to suggest that as long as a woman feels comfortable in this position during pregnancy it should be safe however, if you exprience dizziness, a tingly feeling in the legs, nausea, shortness of breath or feel light headed please change positions.
.
Guidelines change frequently and the more we learn, our science adapts. If you want to play it extra safe you can avoid this position after 28 weeks or modify it so you are on at least a 15 degree incline or lay on your side.

Crazy busy day running errands before Sunday!!! 🎉 Managed to get a 30 minute workout in! Finished BBG Week 1 Arms and Abs!
.
.
One day until I leave for Spain!!! Tomorrow I’ll share all of the yummy snacks I’m packing! I want to try my best to avoid going to a restaurant starving so I’ve got all the snacks 🎉

Live every day like it’s your last ☀️🦄
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In reality we obviously can’t do that, adulting comes with many responsibilities, but we can make sure we don’t take our time or the people around us for granted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If today was your very last day on earth, what would you do? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I would go on a hike to a spectacular view over the city, eat a gigantic Caesar vinegarette salad, and drink a few ice cold ciders on the beach as I watch the sunset. All of this of course surrounded by all my favourite people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🗣Your turn. It’s your last day, what would you do? Go! 👇🏻

TWO RUNS IN TWO DAYS!! Hell yes!
• although i ran the approximately the same distances, the quality of each run was totally different. ▫️
|Wednesday| • it was hot, i probably started out too fast, and started to get cramps by the end. ▫️
|Thursday| • quite the opposite of Wednesday. I started out at a good pace, was relatively relaxed. I focused on my posture and breathing, and just overall felt stronger 💪🏼. ▫️
• all in all, i am so GRATEFUL I can run 🙏🏼
|5.23.18|
|5.24.18|
Daily yoga:
143 & 144 / 365

Tomorrow is @rnbyoga at @whiskeybusinesschi 🧘🏻‍♀️, so I decided to do Saturday’s Full Body AMRAP #ftfmovement today! Followed by a slooooow 1 mile run 🏃🏽‍♀️ - honestly, legs felt like I was trudging through mud. .
