I only wish every girl, every woman... shoot! every man, knew this. I wish they internalized this and truly believed it! Our lives, our being should not depend on how we look. Our purpose is not to simply be here. It's not to be stared at or admired. We've got so much more to do. When we focus less on how we look or even how we think others may think we look, our lives can shift. We can start doing, achieving, growing, learning, sharing, serving, and doing all of the other things that make us the amazing people we are. We can start living to our potential! #beautyredefined #bodypositive #bodylove #bodypositivity #bodyposipanda #repostedphoto #loveyourself #seemorebemore #instrumentnotanornament #loveyourbody #selfimprovement #selfesteem #motivation

I FINALLY FINISHED THE PURPLE 5 IVE BEEN OBSESSED WITH!!! Sorry for yelling. (Not this one, didn’t get a video of purple yet, but this is another 5 I finally sent.) I also had a moment where I was like oh gross, jiggly legs and cellulite, but honestly fuck those thoughts! Because my body is a mean climbing machine that is strong and powerful and flexible and wonderful! And I’m almost done with my third v6. Basically it was an excellent climb night. #fuckyourfitspo #cellulite #climbing #instrumentnotanornament #womenwhoclimb #bouldering #fuckyourbeautystandards #effyourbeautystandards

The National Organization for Women Foundation (NOW Foundation) has declared today, October 18th, 2017, as Love Your Body Day!

Your body is capable of AMAZING things, both big and small, so it’s important to take care of it and show it some love❤️ Some days that means a great workout, others it might just be thanking it for helping you get out of your comfy bed in the morning😉 Your body is an INSTRUMENT, not an ornament, so take pride in how you feel rather than how you look😊 #wellnesswednesday #loveyourbodyday

How does climbing translate to daily life for me? Proving to myself that I can endure discomfort (see; bloody fingers/hands, painful shoes, pushing through long overhang sequences) and finish things that are hard (that multipitch earlier this week, any time I climb cave bouldering routes, pushing through 5.11c slab routes that make my life flash before my eyes, {metaphorically- I'm very safe }). As I sit here coding 18 pages of motivational interviewing homework, I think about how boring and hard this is, and how easy it would be to quit school. But as cheesy as it sounds, I think about how climbing has taught me I am/can be tough as nails and finish hard things. 💪😊 #latenightswaxingsentimental #foreversittinglikeaweirdo #mswstudent #climbingmetaphors #socialmediabreaks #gotobed #instrumentnotanornament

I cricked my neck somehow Friday, so took it pretty easy today. I love the flow in this climb and the balancey moves. Ptsd was looming this morning, and an hour in the bouldering room chased it away.

Early on in my personal training career, I adopted the popular phrase "NSV", which stands for Non Scale Victory. I would use this quite often with clients in an attempt to bolster their faith and confidence in the process if they were experiencing positive changes that weren't weight related.

When I had my "epiphany" and spent all of 2012 healing my relationship with body image, exercise, and food, I decided I didn't much care for this term any more. I mean, think about it: why do we have to qualify the "victory" as "non scale"? It's almost like we are saying, "well, you didn't lose weight, which HAS to be the all time number one indicator of success, so we'll throw the old non scale moniker in there as a consolation prize". I don't like it. Why aren't things like improved sleep, increased strength, more confidence, empowerment, and gains in fitness more important? (because we live in a superficial, weight obsessed society, that's why)

What if we all decided to shift the paradigm? It starts with us be the change, you know. The next time you shave 15 seconds off of your 5K time, increase your bench by 5%, eat dessert without guilt, or nail a plank, call it what it is: VICTORY. Because that's EXACTLY what it is and it doesn't have to be related to body composition or weight changes to be awesome. #lybproject #peaceloveandfood #perspective #personaltrainer #eatingpsychologycoach #victories #theyallmatter #paradigmshift #bethechange #instrumentnotanornament #healthisnotsizedependent #haes #nondiet #intuitiveeating

▶️Today was Workout 4 of the FAST program and this workout is aimed more towards developing speed and power. These exercises really recruit and get your fast twitch muscle fibres firing whilst the supersetting of each exercise with shorter rest times helps with conditioning. I also incorporate a core circuit at the end of this workout followed by a five round high intensity interval set on the spin bike as sort of a metcon finisher. I've always neglected my core and never done any core specific training so this is something I've set out to improve with this program. Hope you like my little pink kettle bell 😂 #Functional #Athlete #InstrumentNotAnOrnament #NiceBodyButWhatCanYouDoWithIt #HighIntensity #EatClean #TrainDirty #Gym #PursueFitness #SwoldierNation #EveryDayIsArmDay #IIFYM #Gains #FoodIsFuel #Conditioning #FAST

Triple S #Resolution #Trifecta 3: #SpartanRace

Yes I know, this is not the full legit spartan race, but with my current lack of conditioning and still nursing an injury, this is as good as it can get. This is not completed without a challenge as I have a strong fear for height and was shaking badly in a few of the obstacles but thx to @isaac_owy who cheered on me to overcome the obstacles, failed still on the monkey bar but I wouldn't want to push that cause of my #injury
Really happy to clear all the resolutions I set for myself, not that they r difficult but they r all a first for me except Showdown, which getting into overalls was a first still. In life it's about always pushing yourself out of the #comfortzone and #embracethesuck , n I'm glad I did. Also, challenged my vertical leap and Guess what? 73cm, not bad as it's been Long since I last trained my #verticalleap

This will hopefully not be the last but the first for more to come. One running event, one physique contest, one #obstaclecourse #cleared

CHECKOUT MY INSTASTORY FOR VIDS FOOTAGE OF MY POST RACE WORKOUT N SNIPPETS AT THE SWEAT ZONE

▶️This is a brief overview of the 8 week training programme that I started today. I am naming this program the FAST program. FAST will stand for functional, athletic, strength training. It's a 5 day split and my main goal is to increase strength and functionality whilst getting fitter and more mobile. I am implementing a lot more stretching and mobility work to the end of my sessions now, aswell as more performance based cardio sessions that will include sprints, jumps and balance exercises etc. I started today on workout 3 and my main strength exercise in this workout was the bench press and this is one of the main lifts I am looking to improve as my final set 5rm was 90kg. I will be logging all my lifts and increasing the volume each session where possible. On the food side of things, I will be hitting just over maintenance calories each day and will aim to get most of my calories from nutritionally dense foods hitting about 200g of protein. My starting weight is 85.4kg. It's good to have a structured plan in place again and this will hopefully set me up nicely for my other goals I would like to hit this year. 💪 👊 #NewProgramme #EatClean #TrainDirty #Gym #PursueFitness#SwoldierNation #Progress #Athlete #Functional #NotAboutLooks #BiggerFasterStronger #Speed #DayOne #Agility #Balance #InstrumentNotAnOrnament #FAST

Take care of yourself and respect what your body can do.

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

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

#GPRepost,#reposter,#notetag @teddylomas via @GPRepostApp ======> @teddylomas: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!
