I have spent YEARS lecturing, teaching and essentially begging clients and friends to "stand up straight". I was going to do it again but this time discussing the perception of others. I hoped and thought that maybe, just maybe, I could reach y'all by helping you recognize that your posture affects how the world sees you thus, affecting your life. Read on people! I'm not making up this stuff! I am sending this to you with SOOOO much love and respect for you and your body.
With Acceptance Comes A BIG Reality Check 1. Accept that you are forever a work in progress (WIP). 2. Accept that you may or may not have the body you want in the timeline you set for yourself. BE REALISTIC. What is your REAL age, height, weight (real weight, ahem), physical activity for the last 2 years, and food intake.
3. Accept that you will always be a slave and student to and for your body and mind.

I went out with my honey last night (🍷) and didn't run this am. Didn't feel like it. You see, I prefer to run in the dark. I'm now left figuring out my workout today. I usually have a better plan but because I woke up later (630), my day has already started off oddly....So! I decided that I would run anyway and take pictures of my run and HIIT workout too! I had a blast! It was like I brought my virtual workout partner on a workout with nature! Come along for my workout!!
To all of our loves, including our world: thank you and I love you. ❤️🌎
It's a turbulent time to say the least...making it tough at times to see other perspectives. Even tougher remembering that we're all humans protecting ours bc that's what we were taught.
However, let's do our best to remember that we're stronger together than divided. #oneworld #onelove
Happy happy thanksgiving to everyone.!!!
Giving thanks for the love in my life. Beyond grateful. 🍁♥️
Gonna share my workout with you today! I kinda felt like it would motivate me as well as remind me that I need "me" time too! #me #metime #iloveexercise #iloverunning
-7am run w Iris. 6 miles. (Hope to see deer!)
-20 minutes HIIT
-45 minutes Pilates. Extension day (I always choose a theme- flexion, extension, lateral movement, ab-centric etc)
Drink 100oz water
Choose patience and kindness (the former is tricky for me)
Of all that I've tried to teach my children, few things matter more to me than gratitude. "You need to say thank you," I often told them, "and say it like you mean it." That's also true for "I'm sorry," and "I love you." If you can't say something like you mean it, chances are you don't. Gratitude changes everything. The one who is thanked feels appreciated. The one who is thankful is healed, transformed from a state of need to a state of grace. And everything around them -
Eat, drink and be happy! Stop and smell the roses! Choose any of those old happy sayings and go do something fun! Our brains and bodies require fun. We are more productive and organized when we are given or choose the opportunity to feel good. So, it's Friday! Make it a great one!
Tell your friends, family and friends that you love them. Why? Why not, I ask?! Life is just too dang short not to. We are pack animals and need to know that we have our peeps. I've had a lovely life of friendships and have lost friends and family overnight. Snap! Gone. Both have taught me that I have today. Take advantage of today and show the love. Happy Thursday; hug day! #hugday #showthelove
