🥚What hardens and egg, will soften a potato.🥔
Ok, bare with me here. What could boiling an egg or a potato possibly have to do with training or weight loss, health or fitness?
Well, actually a lot.
Lets take one of our small group training sessions for example. 🏋🏼♂️If you come in on a Tuesday and attend our MetCon session, I applaud you for that. You have likely had a long day and making it to the gym is a great feat, you are better for being here than not. But thats not the whole thing. Now you are here, you have a choice to temper your approach depending on the amount of energy you have in the tank.
The approach that may be suitable for one person (🤪a 25 year old with boundless energy, the day off work, and 2 extra hours sleep) may not be right for you (😴a 60 year old who’s had a long day and a crazy travel schedule). What may harden them (an egg) may soften you (a potato).
Comparing ourself to others isn’t very useful most of the time. Instead, tempering our approach based off our needs and wants on any given day is. Coming to MetCon is still a great choice, you can do all the things everyone else does, you may just have to adjust your approach to go a little lighter, take a little more rest, do 1 less set, or a few less reps. Some days you are a potato and somedays you are an egg. The approach you take will dictate the benefit from the environment. ➖
When you walk through the door on any given day, be it the gym door, the office door, or the door to your home, you have a choice to be an egg or a potato. Ideally, we want to do things that temper us, make us more resilient, build us up, vs letting the environment break us down, make us less resilient and more like a soggy potato.
This concept goes beyond the gym and MetCon classes and is worth remembering when you are in any environment that can either take us closer or further away from our desired end point.

Winter ways ❄️
I’m the first person to let you know that I don’t love Winter. Cold sheets, thick layers, socks 🤢, cleaning cars off, etc etc etc. Y’all feel me?
But like the saying goes, ‘if you can’t beat em, join em’. I’m going to try my best this year to complain less about Winter. It’s inevitable, and I think she’s here to stay.
One thing I know and recognize in myself during these months, is the importance of rest, but also balancing that with getting out of my house. Setting up routine, diving deep into my yoga practice, furthering my education/trainings, and socializing when I don’t feel like it.
It’s those long, dark, lonely days/nights that can really get the funk going. So let’s make a plan together. How can you show up more for yourself in the Winter months? Sign up for more workshops, or a team sport? Maybe an individual practice such as yoga? Or Qigong? Or Art?
Tonight’s yoga practice @arumaplace
(7-8:30 PM) will be focused on making space in our bodies to transition into these Wintery months ahead. Come join me.
Marriage ... this word can spark joy and excitement or fear and sadness. It just depends on who you’re speaking with.
Marriage is so much more than a wedding. So many people spend months and years planning for a special day. They spend little to no consideration on what they will do when that day is over.
Marriage has caused me to grow in ways that I didn’t even know that I needed to. LOL
I’m so thankful for @iamkeronbrown
and his willingness to take this journey with me. One of the secrets to our success has been Godly counsel. Without it we would NOT be where we at today. The other secret is: community. We are part of a large community of like minded individuals and our community is safe. We can share our triumphs and our struggles alike without being judged. It’s such an empowering feeling to know that we will be successful no matter what we encounter because we are not alone. ———————————————————
Do you have a desire to get married? Are you in a marriage right now that isn’t going the way you planned? ———————————————————
I would love the opportunity to pray with you. Please comment below or DM me.

Day 3 of @justacard
s Indie Week campaign!
Today’s prompt is “community”
I have tagged people who have supported me, (emotionally and financially❤️), people who I have worked with and people who inspire me. I am so lucky and so grateful to have such a wonderful community of people around me. (I obviously couldn’t tag everyone and some people who have done so much for me don’t even have Instagram accounts but they know who they are!❤️❤️)

Instagram challenge is about makers community, and I would like to introduce to you some fabulous peeps and their amazing talents. What all these gorgeous individuals have in common is that they are extremely talented in what they do, that I love, love, love their work and they all have a good soul! Some are good friends, others chatty chums on social media. All have touched my life or my family’s and made us smile 😃. Please check out their talents. Most make something you or your family or your pooch would love. While one will help you with birth! Slightly out the box I know 🙃but hey that’s what we are all about isn’t it. We are not the standard high street 💪🏻 we are individuals creating individual work. Ok I’ll calm down a bit now 😂. Anyway if you get a mo check out these fabulous chums. 😀😃😄😁😆☺️.

Yesterday the wonderful @photographsbycaroline
took some professional photos of me in action at my workshop! So lovely to have someone with talent taking photos rather than me and my iPhone and a shed load of filter apps! I’m so pleased with them although a couple of them (not shown haha) made me think 🤔 Botox anyone? Nah I’m only joking, I’m not that vain and willing to accept my mid forties self . Cough cough 😬. Anyway if anyone is looking for professional work photography then look no further. Now I’ve got some nice pics for when the magazines come calling! I tidied up the tip in my workshop especially for her coming too.
