Paying the man on a Monday.

This shit hurts but always feels so good after.

Yesterday's WOD was a tough one and as per usual was a reminder of all the things I have to improve on (I.e. Quick Barbell Recycling and Practicing Olympic Lifting). But 3 months in to CrossFit and feeling more comfortable by the day. Went at SX weight (115lbs) because I knew I'd get more out of it in terms of practicing my cleans and lifting with technique under fatigue (running and Burpees messes up your engine), rather than trying to power that thing up at 135 and risk getting injured.

Shoutout to @crossfit_taino - great box with great people, really enjoying training here!

Working on the next VLOG - coming soon!

Body fat storage is dependent on so many factors: lifestyle, genetics, etc. There are some things within your control and others that are not. That is why it is CRUCIAL to be process oriented when it comes to your health and fitness journey. Focus on activities and behaviors that are sustainable. That is what being HEALTHY is all about. #lybproject #peaceloveandfood #perspective #personaltrainer #eatingpsychologycoach #eatthefood #instrumentnotanornament #acceptance #radicalacceptance #intuitiveeating #nondiet #bodyempowerment #celebrateyourself #healthisnotalook

Just like you cannot judge a book by it's cover, you cannot judge the fitness and health of a person by their body. We tend to draw conclusions based on what we SEE, without knowing HOW IT REALLY IS. Imagine if you ran into an old friend that you haven't seen in many years. You notice that they are thinner. Our society praises this, so it's natural that you would mention it as an attempt to compliment them.

Imagine if you said, "hey, you look great...you've lost a lot of weight! How did you do it?" What if they replied back to you, "Well, I just finished my second round of chemotherapy." This may seem like an extreme example, and you might be saying to yourself, "that's ridiculous", but stuff like this can happen. It HAS happened. You just...don't...know by looking at someone.

We are so programmed to notice weight, mention weight loss, and revere it. But, its not always the solution. Sometimes, it's a side effect of illness and it wasn't ever meant to be deliberate. Thinner isn't always BETTER, no matter what the culture says.

Let's try to change the conversation. Steer clear of the weight comments, whether it's of gain or loss. Be concerned and interested with how people are DOING instead of how their body is LOOKING.

Something to think about. #lybproject #peaceloveandfood #personaltrainer #eatingpsychologycoach #eatthefood #haes #nondiet #acceptance #radicalacceptance #makepeacewithwhatis #instrumentnotanornament #beautyisinside #silenceisgolden #stopplayingsmall #allbodiesaregoodbodies

Move your body in ways you enjoy because it feels good, instead of engaging in punishing exercise in order to "burn off" or "earn the right" to eat. #moderation #exerciseasplay #movement #balance #wellness #lybproject #bodyempowerment #instrumentnotanornament
