MOST RECENT

First #toughmudder completed and I loved it! Surprised myself with actually being quite capable over the #obstacles 🤣 even bossed the incline monkey bars and spinny wheel things (kind of!) and the ring swings (think ‘hang tough’ from #gladiators!) what fun! Who wants to do another one?! 😁 #strongerthanithought #mud #toughmuddersw2018 #lovedit

Workout ✅ I love lifting weights because I honestly never thought it was something I could do, let alone enjoy!! I try each time, to lift heavier 💪 Busy day ahead and I got my workout done early; so no excuses!! Happy Saturday 🤗 #workout #strenghttraining #muscle #fitness #homegym #strongerthanithought #homeworkout #weightlossmotivation #motivated #happysaturday #shouldermuscles

Leg Day! And my last day of Week 5. 20 workouts in the books. Praise Jesus 🙃 for the strength 🙌🏼 .

I’m loving this program and even though my legs were on fire 🔥 (literally 😳) I somehow pulled through with that insane #speedburpee. If you don’t know... shoot me a DM. .

Throwback to 2017 A level results a year ago today and carrying Josie through the streets of Oxford 💪📝 ❤️ #alevelresults #celebrating #strongerthanithought #piggyback

#ThrowbackThursday to last weekend
when I realized my husband 99.999% gets me and offered to do a wheel with me on top of #HeavensBench. ❤

This was by far the funnest (is that a word?) challenge I've done. Not only did he suggest this but we also tried to pull of a kiss too but ehhhh that was not happening without injury!! 😂

Thanks for being you @chriswho378 ❤ .

This might not seem much to a lot of people but tonight I managed to deadlift 75kg and bench 35kg 🙌🏼 proud of myself 💪🏻 #barbellstrength #deadlift #benchpress #startingout #strongerthanithought #strenght #thisgirlcan #proud

Consider me surrounded! I had another PR today. Something I didnt think I would be able to do. Coach made me try, and I proved myself wrong. I did several bar hangs. The longest one for 6 seconds. I honestly didnt think I was strong enough yet. Now to work on that grip strength.

I don’t go into every workout feeling strong, energized, and lean. But today, I felt pretty good!

I’ll be in a car for 8+ hours today driving to and from the field. So you bet you a** I got up and got my body moving before that!!

It’s easy to call it a wash of a day. Because I’ll be in the field, with limited nutrition options and probably have to go far off my meal plan just to have lunch and dinner. But little things matter! My breakfast is still going to be the healthiest thing it can be. I got my workout done today.
Just because I can make an excuse doesn’t mean I will.

Week 4 Day 2 --- Back & Biceps --- I look like a total #hotmess after that workout &&& I don't even care! 💗💗💗 That was a BEAST! Wanna know the best part?!?!? I had to pause that Beast & get HEAVIER weights for my rows! #strongerthanithought #strongerthanyesterday #fightforyourdreams #100poundsdown #liift4 #liift4testgroup #liift4life #girlswholift #progressnotperfection #icandohardthings #nevergiveup

Do you ever just breathe in and thank __________ (insert whomever, whatever here) that the hard part is over? I do, and because I endured it, I’m that much stronger for it.

Today it was a workout. Other days the hard stuff include the people I meet, the people I’m missing, the hormonal and irrational thoughts and feelings, lack of sleep, feeling stuck. There is struggle, but there is also growth, and for all of it, often in hindsight, I am thankful.

#justbreathe

We had a beautiful long weekend away biking and relaxing in Vermont.

This marks the 5th year we have taken the boys to the Kingdom trails and it is fun and rewarding to see them progress each year with skill and confidence. I'm just glad I can still keep up with them since they keep getting faster. Good thing I'm getting stronger.
Thank you @chriswho378 for including us in your love for mountain biking many years ago. .

I am 4 weeks in with my new 8 week workout program and I'm not complaining.
This is definitely different than the ones I have done in the past for many reasons. First, I choose to focus on building muscle and not losing weight for a change. I'm okay if the scale goes up (but I haven't checked and I've been away for a few days so 🤷‍♀️). I am psyched to see some more definition in my arms and back already.

Another difference with this program is 1 only have to workout 4 days a week (not 6) giving me flexibility to go mountain biking with the family or teaching my class and not having to double up on a workout just to stick to the plan.
It is a great combo of lifting weights, short high intensity intervals and core work! I think it was made just for me. ❤

I love the flexibility of the workouts and nutrition plan... there is an actual scheduled cheat day #HelloBalance!! This program isn't just for people who want to build, lots of women doing it with me having been losing weight too!

What's your goal? You ready to join me and feel amazing? Comment below or message me and I'll share the info so you can see if it is a good fit for you! .

Happy Sunday! ✨

I’m really proud of myself for this work paring. I managed to get 2 workouts in (one shortened so I could get rest), ate fairly well, and survived the long days and short rests. Im down 0.2lbs, and even though it’s not crazy weight loss, I’m proud it’s not a 2+lb gain after these last 4 days. (It took a lot out of me)

And I’m loving the definition I’m seeing (see video). Foci for this week:
- 4 scheduled workouts in
- veggies most
- 2-3 runs to prep for my 5k in Sept
- visits with family
- finish my book
- finish painting the new office
- self care
- quality time with my hubby
- check out Folklorama (cultural festival)

What are you proud of from this last week?
What are you focusing on this upcoming week?

Perfect song to close my night. I fully realized today the amazing love and support from so many people. My heart is full, thank you isn’t even enough! 👊🏻😊 #kesha #🙏🏻 #prayingforyou #grateful #positiveenergy #strongerthanithought #godisgood
