Coming to you live from the couch today, preaching the importance of rest and recovery 💤 .
From someone who finds it hard to rest or take a break from training - I know how important it is and that it isn’t me being “lazy” or unmotivated - it’s just necessary.
With rest the body adapts to the stress we have placed it under, replenishes glycogen stores (energy) and repairs the tissue we have just broken down during training.
The obvious result is that we can recover and train harder but it also allows us to recover psychologically as well. Taking time out to relax with rest days will also ensure we lower our cortisol levels (stress hormone) - which is vital for sleep - and without sufficient sleep, forget all the above because you will not function or train efficiently in the first place 🏋🏼♀️
One thing I am starting to do is keep track and use a training diary. This is to track what I am doing, the intensity and how I felt during and after that session. It also helps me track my rest and make sure I am actually having some 📖
So here’s to enjoying your long weekend, not feeling like you HAVE to do it all, all the time and to training better and smarter ✔️💪🏻😎 #rest #recovery
When I first met Igine, she did felt lost in the gym. Now, I'm confident to say that she can fly on her own and manage her current fitness level and body weight. Igine's goal was just to stay at a decent weight where she feels is right for her and that was what we did. We focused on gaining strength especially around her core and practiced healthy eating habits. As a result, she can now enjoy eating out without worrying about gaining too much weight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Daily-grind 122: Planning.
It is Saturday evening and while many people are going out clubbing, drinking and wasting money, I'm working on my PLAN.
2019 Plan (This is my plan)
- Get to 10 locations in the Soccer business.
- Get 12 more doors in Real Estate.
- Get 100 students inside our English Learning System and methodology.
How can all the above be achieved?.
It's called: Planification & taking action, executing the plan one step at a time (small goals) and in December 31st of 2019, all the above will be achieved.
You should stop wasting time and START INVESTING YOUR TIME WISELY.

May we all experience weightlessness, if even for just a single moment-reminding us we are okay, we can keep going, & that flight is possible 📸 @mbzphotog
Post arm day pump. Working on really forcing my arms to grow. The struggle to get them bigger and more defined is unreal. I feel like I've done and exoerienced so much already and not much has helped but I don't plan on stopping or giving up. You really gotta push and force them and go past there threshold to reach that arm pump to develope more gains. Don't quit on yourself. Do whatever it takes to get there even if that means adding more weight, bigger supersets, more drop sets, controlling the negatives and/or focusing on the squeeze and contract on every rep. Let's work hard and go after the arm gains!

No começo tudo e muito doloroso, parece que o mundo e contra as tuas forças, mas continue, consistência, luta, não pare, uma hora você vai acertar.
O que vence as forças exteriores é a sua força interna.
Só é possível vencer se persevera, o começo e o que dirá se você alcançará ou não seu objetivo, pois a parte mais difícil e ela.

The best gift I could ever give myself is feeling good in my skin, and I am definitely on my way y’all!!!
That’s how a trade in Betfair. Simplicity and patience. You can use others values as you have in your account. As long you keep in game, with the experience trading matches every day, your accuracy goes up, your account too, and your profits. It’s not complicate to get a ROI between 10-30% monthly following this plane. Discipline, risk management, and patience.
Didnt forget about the weekly beat, just had to play with time a bit differently this week, and classes bout to start up so there'll be another obstacle but I'll find a way. Feeling Blessed to be a part of the guest performances this coming Tuesday @scratchouseatx

2019. So fresh, but yet in the everyday it quickly seems like the same old. BUT I have this hope deep within me ...big dreams and a yearning that goes beyond what anything in this world could give, yet simple moments that fulfill just that. Consistency is the word I choose for this year. Little drops of purposeful living until this life is soaked on through. #2019 #pouringrainismyfavorite #consistency
Every goal you set can only be accomplished through hard work and consistency.🙌🏻It’s all the little decisions we make daily that leads us in the direction we are going, so take one day at time, believe in yourself, nourish your body, and stay consistent.💪
and I have been in LA this weekend. I love being here to support my babe, taking photos and videos while he trains with his coach @milossarcev
, who is an amazing person! In 6 weeks Kris is competing in the @arnoldsports
in the body building @wheelchairbodybuilding
division. I’m so proud of him, his drive, hard work, perseverance and his love to inspire others.😍
I’ve only did my cardio this weekend. I don’t force myself to workout when I’m out of town or on vacation, especially being here to support Kris. I do it because I really love it! I allow myself to have flexibility. Flexibility is a big key!🔑
Focus on what you can do not what you can’t. Try being your biggest fan, celebrate the things little things you do, the victories, instead of feeling bad you couldn’t do more. Appreciate your body and what it can do. It’s you against you.🔥❤️

Just calling it like I see it. Today was a good day. Navy weekends can be hard as there’s an underlying urge to not do much as Daddy would miss out. But today we took advantage of a Dive Clinic Vivien had for Swim Team and made a stop PLUS added a movie. As we were leaving American Girl I told Vivien we were late for the show we wanted to go to but we could wait until tomorrow. She said “No, we should go today. It’s a special day.” So I didn’t argue. It WAS a special day. And we made it to the theater in plenty of time to see Mary Poppins Returns.
If you want it bad enough, nothing can stop you 🐲
