Pool goals starts today! #butidontwantto #aging #useitorloseit

The wallets I've put out there in the world are starting to get some miles on them and it's so exciting to see. Two updates here: one wallet has made it to North Korea (!!!) thanks to @brads_walk awesome adventures. The other photo shows Dale's wallet, which has seen some serious love in Colorado.

Had a tough time waking up my jelly legs. Wasn't as easy as I thought it would be! My smile of pain was on the entire session. A reminder that it takes so much sweat to build muscle only to sit on your bum for a few weeks (at least I'd like to think it was a few weeks, or 7?) and lose it. #UseItOrLoseIt.

Letting my body mooove.🤸🏻‍♀️ #feelinit


People ask me all the time why I'm so into handstands now, I never did them before in my workouts. Well for me it's actually much more than just playing around upside down. Hands stands help me in the gym also🤷🏻‍♀️ For the longest time I've struggled with upper body strength and from that, I had underdeveloped back muscles. After I started really focusing on my #upperbody days in the gym I noticed something, I simply could not get certain muscles in my back to fire off (flex) with the same ease as I could in my lower body. I had terrible mind/body connection (the ability to make my body do exactly what I want it to) 😩😩 I started dropping my weight so I wasn't straining myself, but instead I made myself focus on feeling my muscles contract with each rep. It helped but the real change for me was when I started doing these babies; HAND STANDS 🤸🏻‍♀️ Using my entire upper body to balance myself upside down forced me to activate muscles it never had to while standing regular! Every time I go into a handstand I can feel my entire T-spine (thoracic spine/middle of back) activate and it's a feeling I've never felt correctly in the past. I also feel my shoulders activate from pushing away from the floor and that's something I've never felt because my traps use to take over in the gym during certain movements. These have helped me develop my upper body strength so much, I'm writing this because if you're in the same boat I hope it can help you too!! #learnmyways #useitorloseit #mobility

Warm up movement: diver push ups💪🏽

Another new entry in my #rollingprojectpan! I decided to declutter the mini lip gloss I found in a #glossybox_de and replace it with my #alterra Terra lipstick. I really want to finish this one because it's a natural product and I would like to finish it before the end of the year. The smell of the lip gloss was bothering me so much that it became a chore to use. I gave it several chances but I could not do it! #panningcommunity #useitorloseit #projectuseitup #makeup #makeupcollection #drugstoremakeup #projectfinishit #naturalmakeup #projectpan

Last update for project #drop10bysummer. The pictures on the left are where I started in March with each product, middle pics are from the last update & the last row is what the products look like for this finale. Finished the Soap & Glory powder & MAC Stay Pretty blush (that I'd repressed into a smaller compact) 🎉 Surpassed my goal of hitting pan on the highlight in the Tarte Aqualillies palette (fell in love with it). Didn't finish the champagne or aqua shadows but made awesome progress. Going to post my intro photo with all the products I finished. #panningcommunity #projectpan #useitorloseit

Soaking up rays and catching waves. 🤙🏼 This place is the fountain of youth...I'm sure of it! Every year for the past 20 years we take our family to Lake Powell and make the best memories. I want to always be ABLE to enjoy these moments. Having a healthy, ABLE body is a blessing. I am so grateful for it, AND work hard to maintain it. #useitorloseit #lakepowell #hyperlite #wakesurf

MOST RECENT

Rewind three years ago. I was exhausted and desperate for a change.
The small decision to say yes to working out at home, drinking an awesome nutrient dense Whole Foods shake and getting into my best physical shape has turned into a place that will allow me to leave my job very soon (one that I like!) to travel around the country seeing my youngest son play college ball and yet still be fulfilled to teach and impact others.
Yes over the past 3 years, I have been building a business for when I retire. Yes I've missed watching TV and a few social situations doing this and my other teaching job. It's the small choices that we make each day that add up to big results over time.
Three years later I cannot believe where that decision has taken me. 💙

#decluttering Prestige Skin Loving Minerals Fresh Glow Baked Mineral Blush in Natural. I've had this for years now and never reach for it. I thought it would give me a nice natural look with a bit of glow. It doesn't show up on my skin tone so I have to pile it on to get it to show up, and then it accentuates all my texture and pores that I didn't even know I had! This is a great brand! This product just doesn't work for me. 😪 #buhbye #declutter #useitorloseit .

#empties #clairol Root Touch Up in Light Brown- ❤️#mauimoisture Conditioner- liked the product; hated the packaging! #elizabethandjames Nirvana Perfume Sample- not for me; very spicy scent. #elizabethmott Show Me Your Glow- this came in an #ipsyglambag and it was nice, won't purchase a full-size though. #secretclinical- ❤️ #dtrt BB Cream- meh. #oralb Floss- ❤️ #colgate Toothbrush- got the job done. The only items I'd repurchase are the Root Touch-up and the #secretdeodorant. The rest I'd pass on. #emptiesmakemehappy #beautyempties #useitorloseit #projectuseitup #projectpanners #ipsy

Today's treadmill heading out to work at Dirty Birds Liberty Station. Running is a vacation!
#run #work #vacation #missionbay #libertystation #dirtybirds #sandiego #dowhatyoulove #theworldisyourgym #pacificbeachfitclub #useitorloseit

This weekend's workout is one of my favorites...TABATAS!!
If you don't know about them, they are short bursts of exercise (20 seconds) and a quick break (10 seconds) for 8 rounds in a row before taking a longer break between sets.
Today we are going to do 4 sets, 8 rounds in each set!

Set 1: Push Ups
Set 2: Jumping Lunges
Set 3: Swimmers
Set 4: Burpees

So, 8 rounds of push ups. 20 sec on 10 sec break for 8 rounds total. Then a 1.5-2 min break. On to set 2... all the way through all 4!

Try to keep moving the entire 20 seconds, even if the reps decrease. Just try to keep moving!

Good luck! Let me know if you have any questions!

this is a never ending story...always working on my splits. Legs feeling sore after a 8km run yesterday, so I'm happy with this stretch today. I always had cramps in my legs at night after long runs but since I'm practicing yoga regularly, I'm fine with that! #dowhatyoulove #findyourbalance #yogainspiration #yogapractice #balancedyogi #yogagirl #splits #practicemakesprogress #useitorloseit #namaste #aloyoga #strengthandflexibility

#NahusAsana from Ashtanga Yoga 4th/Advanced B. series.
Westerner Ashtanga Yoga practicioners can be very confused, because there is no real transitional progression between the Ashtanga Yoga series. There is nothing to prepare you for this asana for example. There is no asana in the whole 3 series before which can be compered with the extreme flexibility needed here in hip abduction, hip internal rotation and knee external rotation. Why? Because Ashtanga Yoga is simply not optimized for practicioners outside of India, where children are sitting crossed legs from a very young age and you need to squat to go to the toilet all the time. So when you view Ashtanga Yoga as a traditional practice you are only half-right. It is traditional in India, but it is a completely wrong and dangerous idea to view it like this in the West. The demanding adjustments by yoga teachers and trial and error mentality ('Don't be affraid to injure yourself, because if you can heal, you will be able to do the asana right after') is simply not acceptable, because it is too much at stake here. If you want to practice Ashtanga Yoga, you need to re-learn proper movement patterns, you've not even lost, but you've never ever had. It is because of your completely different lifestyle than the lifestyle of the people where the whole system was created. The process of re-learning is not included in the Ashtanga Yoga progressions at all. It is simply complete in itself with every series. So, practicing Ashtanga Yoga will not teach you, how to do asanas from the Ashtanga Yoga series.

Day 22 of the #minsgame. Some unused stuff, clothes too small and lids for plastic containers I don’t even have anymore. 🤔 Pahvikerrostalo etsii remonttitaitoista omistajaa ja uusia asukkaita. 😉 Meillä on jo yksi tällainen.
