The 3-foot Circle Rule. If it’s over three feet away from you, it’s something you don’t need to worry about. Fitness is mental. Your mind will wander and quit before your body does. Too many people assume the stronger your body is, the more discipline you have. They’re wrong. Currently trying to cross No Hero by Mark Owen off my summer reading list, and he talks about his 3-foot circle. The bigger picture is unnecessary. Concentrate on the weight. Concentrate on studying. Worry about the things right in front of you and then move forwards. You want to be strong? Stop quitting because you’re worried about a mountain you haven’t even climbed yet. .

Posting about fitness things again can only mean one thing, right? There’s a goal. There’s a plan. There’s no stopping now. .

A year ago, I stepped on stage for the first time as a Figure competitor. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss the challenge, the way I looked, and the feeling that I got in the spotlight. There’s absolutely nothing like the rush you get from chasing your dreams. Plus, abs 😍 I can’t wait to step on stage again. .
Let me be completely transparent, because someone needs to talk about it. Reality check. I get messages constantly about fitness and dieting and shows (idk why y’all are messaging me about competitions, btw, when you can go find someone with their pro-card 🙈). I’m so grateful to have people who push me to be a better athlete. But this fall, after prep, life happened. Not only was I physically exhausted, but I was mentally and emotionally pushed beyond my limit. After I got the hang of a reverse diet, I ran into “health issues” and my body fucking quit. I put that in quotations, because I’m still learning about what happened. My metabolism and my hormones crashed. While on a meal plan (that I actually stuck to 🙃), my body held on to every once of food and water I put into it. My weight shot up 30 pounds in three weeks. I had acne for first time in my life. I was lethargic, but I couldn’t sleep. I was miserable. And COMPLETELY devastated, and so embarrassed. Everything I’d spent the last few years building was gone. The person I saw in the mirror wasn’t someone I recognized. It got pretty damn dark for a while. .
For so long, I’ve been an athlete or a racer, or a fighter, or whatever the hell I wanted to be. I’ve never backed down from a challenge, and because of that, my failures outnumber my victories, and I find myself forgetting about the successes a lot. I forget where I started and what I’ve accomplished, and I tend to concentrate on where I THINK I should be. I hold myself to a stupidly high standard (#hardestworkersintheroom), because I am a perfectionist. 🤗 **Thats what happens when you spend a couple years listening to people who tell you that you’ll never be good enough.** The time I spent trying to heal myself was also time I spent forgiving myself. It’s ok to eat above maintenance. It’s ok to take rest days. (cont’d)

Are you into fitness? Yea, fitness donut in my mouth. 🍩😉 Grateful to have spent a Sunday with someone who understands that Duck Donuts are worth driving for. #scarethelocals #wildchild

The time will pass anyways. You will never be stuck in one hardship or one feeling forever. Time will pass at the same rate wether you’re struggling or flying. So, how you spend tomorrow is up to you. But, I promise, the view from the top will always beat the way it felt to run from the bottom. #squareup #scarethelocals

I love Orangetheory Fitness. I love my job. I love watching lives change through health and fitness. I love being a part of a community that is so uplifting and supporting. I love the workouts. I love waking up when it’s still dark out to get in a quick cardio session before my shift. I love the way Orangetheory has changed MY life. BUT I love Ed’s face the most. .
Let me brag about Ed- he quit smoking on December 26th. The first time I met him, he told me that he stopped smoking 2 packs a day in order to come to classes. Three days a week, he comes in to one of our early morning classes with a smile. He always has something positive to say, about himself or about our staff. Today, we celebrated his first time reaching over 84% of his maximum heart rate for 12 minutes (supposedly 😂). All this positive change and progress makes me so happy 🤗 and I’m so proud of him!

Left- 2013, 125 lbs, I worried about mile times and distance running, I suffered with chronic pain and inflammation in my tendons in my ankles and feet, I “modeled” for a brief period (😂😂😂), I was terrified of heavy weight and “unclean” food, and I had just gotten my first tattoo...
.
Right- 2017, 145 lbs, Who wants to guess how many tattoos I have now? 😂 I like to think I’m a well-rounded athlete- I run, lift, swim, cross-train, bodybuild, or just whatever I feel like doing. I run distance if I want to, I lift heavy because I love to, and I’m never really satisfied. I am definitely not a model. AND IT DOESN’T HURT TO RUN ANYMORE! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 I treat my body with respect for the hard work I put it through, versus punishing myself for not being perfect. .
What’s the take away? People change. Embrace it or get out of the way. Every chapter of your life demands a different version of yourself. Learn. Grow. Do pull ups. 💪🏻💕
