🏋🏼♀️ My 2018 fitness journey has been nothing but go since getting back from my vacation (January 19th). Recently falling in love with Crossfit and weight lifting, I have found that passion for sport that has been missing in my life since cycling. The passion and drive that gets you out of bed at 4a.m to better yourself. I'm so lucky for my online training with @adamrenallcoaching and the great people at Andfit. With the Crossfit open coming to a end this week, I plan on spending the next year focusing on; improving my fitness, weight lifting technique, PB's, and eating my macros. - - I am not the lowest I have ever weighed but I am the strongest I have ever been in my life. My body is by far for perfect and that is completely okay. Feels pretty amazing. #bodypositive#happydays#dontthinkjustdo#crossfitopen#crossfit#goals#goforit#booty#timetochasedreams
Facebook memories have me feeling sentimental. It is hard to believe it has been 2 years since my 1st student burlesque solo " Endangered Species ". I had bronchitis, my costume was falling apart at dress rehearsal, choreography wasn't finished at tech rehearsal at venue. Day of show rehearsal forgot my gloves and popped a pastie. Whew! This act has changed my entire world!! I started visualizing costumes and sewing again.
I never imagined this act would be booked only 6 months after it's debut. I was so new to burlesque and had so much to learn. I was happy to get booked in San Diego. 8 months later I am a traveling showgirl. WTF!! This is so surreal! I have had the honor of gracing the stage The Hollywood Burlesque Festival, Carnivale De Sensuale in Denver, Competing at Arizona Burlesque Festival, OMG -November winner of Nudie Nubie San Francisco. This has been a whirlwind!
International traveling showgirl was no where on my radar. It is still hard to wrap around my mind that I am the Fresh Face Featured performer( International Cabaret) at The Vancouver International Burlesque Festival in April and performing Endangered Species. 🤔
My burlesque family and this act have changed my life! I am not just surviving I am thriving in spite of all the trials and tribulations I experience.
The lyrics to Dianne Reeves - Endangered Species say it best!
I am an endangered species But I sing no victim's song I am woman I am an artist And I know where my voice belongs I know where my soul belongs I know where I belong
Heard this yesterday and it really resonated with me. - Sometimes I feel vulnerable and appearances can be deceiving when it looks like everyone else has their sh*t together or my insecurities will have me taking things too personally when I have no effing idea what’s going on in “their” heads. - When the tough get going and things don’t go your way, there is often a silver lining and (I’m going cliche here) everything happens for a reason. - I truly believe that 🙏🏾🙏🏾 . . .
Decisions.. We can think about things, turn them over in our minds a million times, play out possible scenarios, but really when it comes down to it, you have to go with your heart and move forward. Maybe things will go well. Maybe they'll turn out poorly. Every decision brings with it some good, some bad, some lessons, and some luck. The only thing that's for sure is that indecision steals many years from many people who wind up wishing they'd just had the courage to leap. #DoeZantamata . . . #dontthinkjustdo#believeinyourself#livewithnoregrets#becourageous#beyou#loveyourself
Well said 🙏 - For anyone who knows me well, they know that when I’m up against something challenging (let’s be honest; freaks me out!), that’s when I go for it. - I have a saying..”if I feel nauseas, that’s a sign that I HAVE to do it”. - Weird, I know but so far, it has served me well 😉💪🏾👊🏾 . . .
