make space for what fills my cup.
nope. that's a big nope.
it takes discipline. boundaries. saying no to things that i "think i should do" or feel guilt towards. so i CAN say yes to things i love. it's sticking to my schedule and my dreams so i can keep growing and learning. it's funny how easy it is to fall into these ideas i THINK people have of me and follow the same patterns i've created. because it's easier to just fall in line and than to live my life. right? i don't know if it's easier but it's definitely more comfortable. i am the only person that ACTUALLY knows me. so maybe it's time to listen to ME. who woulda thunk?! what lies are you telling yourself? how are you fuelling your creativity today?
p.s. this photo is a product of making space. i could have decided it was too cold to do this. i was too busy. but those are all lies i could have told myself and look what magic came out of saying no to lies and YES to creativity! photo @lizacurtiss.portraits

One of the perks of pursuing what I love is meeting new (and awesome) people...like YOU. For those who don’t know, I’m a master trainer for several fitness brands and a fitness design consultant who loves helping facilities grow by adding the right equipment, while providing the best education/training possible. I started my career 10 years ago as a personal trainer while I was in college and have since felt incredibly lucky to do what I love. That’s enough about me...I’d love to learn more about you, so let me know who you are in the comments below. I’d be honored to chat and connect. ☺️

Thank you for everyone who participated! The next launch is going to be a good one! A lot of updates coming on how we handle your product!!!
Couldn't decide on a caption. It's either:
1) weak hips sink 'ships
2) strong glutes build youts
so, whichever one you like best.
Grilled shrimp & chicken fajitas 🤤
Leg day pour moi. Stuck to machines since my shoulder is angry at me and didn’t want to lift anything. Not my best. Not my worst.
Lisbon & sunsets...it’s like ONE thing. They’re just stuck together. 🌅 (where’s my nose btw?!)
Hard trainen, hard losgaan 💥! Hardclassics vanavond 👊🏻👊🏻
YOU'VE EVERYTHING INSIDE OF YOU, YOU JUST HAVE TO BELIEVE IT WITH FAITH & CONSISTENCY !! ✞

*long caption* It’s normal to feel demotivated. It’s normal to get frustrated because you haven’t seen progression in a while. It’s normal to go through stages of lacking motivation. The photo on the left, I was living a very unhealthy lifestyle, I have always been sporty but I was eating terribly and I did not look after my body. I had tried getting into the gym but whenever I went I would be annoyed if I didn’t see results basically straight after, sounds silly now but I used to get so demotivated and just give up. I had such a bad relationship with food, I would just skip meals and not thinking anything of it and just snack on junk food.i would eat fruit and then feel like I’d been healthy so then eat 3 chocolate bars. I once had to go off in an ambulance because I passed out at an athletics competition due to lack of energy and dehydration. I never thought I’d disclose such personal information on the internet but I just really hope it helps some people who might be in a similar place now. I didn’t understand the importance of nutrition and importance of mental health.Fast forward to the right, my relationship with food still isn’t perfect, but this journey is never ending, I am at the best place I have ever been though both mentally and physically. I consistently eat 3 meals a day, I eat at least 1800 calories, I have drastically reduced my junk food intake and now prefer healthier snacks. I go to the gym 5 times a week and I absolutely love it. I go because it helps me in all aspects.I can sometimes over think a lot when I get stressed and can get really worked up about little things that aren’t even important, I can’t explain how much going to the gym improves my outlook on life. It helps me think more positively, it gives me motivation and drive and makes me feel so much more confident and happier in general. Of course, seeing physical changes is amazing, but I’m not constantly looking for them now. I don’t get discouraged if I haven’t seen them straight away, I’m in a much better place and I couldn’t be happier right now. Remember a fitness journey is never a straight line, it has so many ups and downs❤️mental transformations are just as important☺️
Well well we’ll ....are they not the best colour CK ever 🧐
Excellent shoulder session thanks to @michelle_mbsportstherapy.
Managed a new PB of 6 x 50kg OHP 👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼 excuse the gurning, I can’t train with a straight face 🤪
I ran 20 miles this morning. Have you ever stopped to think about how far that is? Today I thought about multiple places I drive every day that is less than 20 miles and then I thought about how damn crazy I am for running it. 😂 Yesterday was my 4 year running anniversary- never in my wildest dreams when I ran those first 3 miles on a treadmill did I think I would be ever training for my 5th marathon and running 20 miles on Saturday mornings for “fun”. Its pretty freaking amazing what your body is capable of. 💪🏻
Happy Saturday! I have close to 40,000 steps and plan on sitting a lot for the rest of the day. 😍

Breakfast spot in the south....I love the country peach French toast with a side of egg whites & turkey sausage! Taste like my grandma’s in the kitchen!👵🏾🍳😍😋
Idag blev det köttfärssoppa med en klick creme fraiche.
500 gram nöt köttfärs
1 pkt krossade tomater
Kryddor: salt, lökpulver, spiskummin, curry, vitpeppar, saltpeppar, oregano.
Kokade potatis, morötterna och palsternackan i grönsaksbuljong, så det fick bli vätskan i soppan. .
Soppan blev godkänd av både make och sonen.👌🏻
Remember. The day you plant the seed is not the day you eat the fruit.
Be patient. Be humble.
Keep moving forward and know that all this hard work you're putting in will produce the results you are looking for. Your time is coming.
Don't give up.✌🏿❤

P E A C E 🔴⚫☻ " Tu sais acno dans mon monde utopique personne n a à se battre, j attend juste ce que la vie me reserve...
-... jusqu à ce que tu te retrouves avec un couteau sous la gorge derriere une poubelle avec personne pour t aider, t auras beau prier et attendre qui tu veut, etre à la merci de quelqu un qui va t imposer son monde à lui, son utopie personnelle, te feras revoir ton point de vu. Et si son utopie personnelle c'est de te la mettre dans la bouche et de decharger dans ta narine gauche ( coté coeur parce qu il y a du sentiments ❤) avant ou apres t'avoir balafré tu peut me croir sur parole, tu seras toujours moin cynique que moi ☻" Dieu sait que je suis loin d etre exemplaire selon ses critères
Mais Dieu sais aussi que j'ai fait ce qu'il faut pour etre en paix aujourd hui et livrer les combats que j ai envi de livrer.
J'ai du sacrifié des personnes que j'aimais mais qui me tirais vers le bas pour y arriver.
Je conquis ma vie je ne la subis plus. Concepte qui te depasse nan? Esclave.
Si tu n est pas fort ( nan pas que physiquement je te rassures ) en ce bas monde. N'importe qui peut t imposer n importe quoi.
Aujourd'hui j'ai trouvé ENFIN, la paix.
Ma paix est dans l'effort.
Ma paix est dans la tempete de ma volonté.
Ma paix est dans les flammes de ma passion
Ma paix est dans la guerre que je me livre à moi meme.
... Ma paix est dans ce que toi tu appelles l'enfer☻
Et c est là que ta faiblesse a à s'en faire. Pas besoin d'aligner les cadavres, d'opprimer autrui pour etre en paix. Ne perd donc pas ton temp avec ceux qui t'importunes.
Ton plus grand enemi c'est toi meme. Parce qu une fois que tu t es vaincu toi meme, tu as vaincu le monde
