RISE AND SHINE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE! ☀️ . It’s a great day to have a great day! Now I did wake up late today and missed my workout but I’m not going to let that stop me from having a great rest of my day. Plans change, it’s a part of life! Just commit to completing things later on! . Only one more week til my challenge starts and I go 100% all in until Thanksgiving (omg I can’t believe the holidays are right around the corner)! I’m feeling pumped about how my results will turn out!! Telling myself that I will get out of it what I put in, has been my best motivator lately because it’s true! . What you eat, what you drink, what you do at home or at the gym. It all matters in the end. When you’re looking in the mirror, push yourself to the max or you’ll find yourself regretting you didn’t. YOU GOT THIS!! . #alltrufit #shakeitup #pumpkinspice #proteinshake #superfoods #hype #fitnessmotivation #homegymrat #keepyourpromisestoyourself #staycommitted #stayexcited #letsgo

After running 10 miles today, I decided I would go ahead and do the Day 6 workout of the #80dayobsession . My two year old joined me 😂😍😊. #trainthemyoung #queenbeehalf #keepyourpromisestoyourself
LEARN TO LOVE WHERE YOU ARE! . . But if you fall get back up so you can fall again..... . . Some days I take a step towards becoming a better version of myself and others I drink a bottle of wine, munch on a kebab and chips from the chippy followed by a big bar of chocolate and ops I forgot to train this week 🙈. . .

Don’t wait to achieve what you want because you think you are lacking something. Don’t give up just because it didn’t work out right the first time. Sometimes, achieving your goals takes a little bit of trial and error to find something that works for you. I remember so many times that I just wanted to feel confident in myself and my own abilities. A big thing for me that has increased my self-confidence is sticking to the commitments I have made for myself. One of these commitments within the past year and a half has been improving my health and fitness. It hasn’t happened overnight. I hasn’t been easy. But I will tell you it is so worth it. The other morning, I got ready for work like I normally do. I put on these (new to me) pair of jeans and looked in the mirror. This was the strongest and most comfortable I have ever felt. It was because I made the decision to never look back and go after what I wanted. It was because I never gave up and stuck with the promise I made to myself. Not only that, I also have a whole team to help keep me accountable to my health and fitness goals. You wouldn’t break a promise you make with a friend. So why do you break promises you make with yourself? Honour those commitments, cherish them, and follow through with them. I can assure you that you will be so glad that you did! Here are some tips to help you stay true to your promises: • Decide what you want to work towards. • Make a plan on how you will get there. • Imagine how you will feel WHEN you reach your goal. • No matter what, show up every day. Each day gets you closer to your goal. #confidenceissexy #bluejeans #handmedowns #keepyourpromisestoyourself #nevergiveuponthedream #thursdayvibes #yougotthis #believeinyourself #longsleeves #girlswithglasses #peterborough #staycommitted #makethedecision #instructortherapist
Happy Thursday! I might not have been perfect with my workouts this week, but that is no reason to give up!

Joining a Health & Wellness Company is like joining a gym. Some sign up and do nothing. Some sign up and change everything. It's not up to the gym, or the products...it's up to YOU! 🤷🏻‍♀️👊🏼#TruthBomb #keepinitreal #selflove #selfmotivation #workit #yougotthis #hello #keepyourpromisestoyourself #justdoit #bossbabe #workinonme #hireyourself
This morning didn't happen, so I got to it this afternoon! 8.2 miles in 30 minutes on the bike...getting better! Happy Monday! #afterworkworkout #motivation #commitment #strongnotskinny #strongerthanyesterda #practicewhatyoupreach #healthydoc #keepyourpromisestoyourself
Yeah, I got a new pump on following my dreams in this last week. And this - #writing - is one of my forevers... ✒️ So, a new idea (not a new story) grew in my mind. Let's just see if I have what it takes to complete it. NO! I promise I will complete it! Even if I know I will have to give a bit of sleep. And it will be hard! I PROMISE THIS TO MYSELF! 🐲 . . #writer #wannabewriter #scrivener #novel #letsfothisagain #promises #promisetomyseld #keepyourpromisestoyourself #dreams #followingdreams #aforeverdream #selflove #goodexample
At 10am it was too hot to go for a walk with my dog, and I had a list of things to do. The funniest thing happened. It was all in my head, but I am going to share my moment with you all, and try not care what you think about my sanity. You know how Jimney Cricket encourages Pinocchio to do the right thing? Well I kid you not, Rachel Hollis was my Jimney Cricket this morning. I swear, the moment I said to myself that I wasn't going for a walk, I heard her voice say "you can't break promises to yourself". I chuckled to myself and answered "I will go tonight when it's cooler and I am done my to-do list". Yep this internal conversation happened....I think I have been listening to too many of her podcasts and live broadcasts...or I need more sleep. Hahahaha. Tonight it looked like it was going to rain and it was windy, but a promise is a promise. I put my hat on, laced my shoes up and took my overly excited dog with me on a brisk 40 minute walk. Make a conscious effort to pay attention to the promises you make to yourself and be sure to follow through. Ps..read the post below from my personal Jimney Cricket. . . . Regrann from @msrachelhollis - What are you committing to do this week? Who are you committing to be? Don't make those promises lightly. If you say you're going to go to the gym, you better get moving! If you say you're going to revamp your resume, you better open up that computer! If you say you're going to increase your outbound call volume by 10%, you better pick up the dang phone! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You will bend over backward to keep your word to everyone else, so why do you keep breaking the promises you make to yourself? You know better, now DO better. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thanks @shannon.elle.martin for the rad #GirlWashYourFace quote! - #regrann
Tomorrow I begin Round #2 of Liift4! I completed the 8 weeks and gained muscle and am very proud of starting out with 5 and 10lbs and now my 15lbs are my light weights, but I didnt follow the nutrition plan the way I should have and as a result I didnt get the results I wanted. So tonight I will have a glass of red wine and some dark chocolate to satisfy that sweet tooth because for the next 8 weeks- GAME ON! #momfitgoals #liveyourbestlife #liift4round2 #keepyourpromisestoyourself #soccermom #coach #wife #boss
Well, I made it only almost to the top. I could go higer. But, these babies looked at me, while I was killing the hill and begged me to take them home. So, I had to turn around... 🚴‍♀️🍄 #sorrynotsorry . Still, I loved this trip: it felt not too hard, I went on a higher path, I had enough strength and energy to get to my goal and I felt great! So, not only I came home with diner, not only I kept my plan of going on a bike today, I finished the week strong and with endurance. A #winwin #activeDay #sunday for me! 💪🌞🏞️ . . #bike #biking #cycling #mountainbiking #hillcycling #training #fitlife #fitmum #keepyourplans #plantraining #keepyourpromisestoyourself
Happy #FlashBackFriday ! ... This throwback🕶️ is from 2012. I did not, repeat did NOT🙅‍♀️ discover some quick fix silver bullet🔫 and magically🧙‍♂️ drop over 40lbs overnight🌙 with no work. I tried (and failed) at a million different tactics, including unhealthy deprivation🚫 and loading up on chemicals💊. I'd jump on a fad bandwagon🚃 and fall off time and time again when it wouldn't work for me. After so many years of doing this up and down and up and down again😒, I was able to reflect🤔 and learn👩‍🏫 that I experienced the most long-term⏲️, sane🧠, sustainable📈, healthy❤️ success when I was doing Beachbody which required no elimination of food groups🌈, no crazy chemicals☠️, and gave me a support system👥📲 for accountability. And the only reason I would loose that progress is because I still had that quick fix mindset🙄: "Oh, I'm fixed, I can stop now." Guess what happens when you stop doing the hard work that earned you results and check out? ➡️You loose your progress😭! ... I share these before/after photos📸 with you every week, not cuz I need your applause👏, but because I don't want you to make the same mistakes and loose the mass amount of time⌛ like I did. ... So... 🛑Quit looking for a quick fix! 🛑Quit putting toxins into the temple of your soul! 🛑Quit lying that you want it so badly if you're actually prioritizing your excuses! 🛑Quit making yourself promises and then breaking them! 🛑Quit being a quitter! ... Yeah it's been a slow🐢 (& hard, not steady) process🛣️ for me, but quitting definitely didn't speed🐇 it up any!
Thank you Rachel Hollis for reminding me that promises to MYSELF are not only IMPORTANT....they are the MOST IMPORTANT✨ What an eye opening, jaw dropping realization (when I was reading this part of her book)....that I ALWAYS KEEP MY Promises to everyone....my friends, sisters, parents, colleagues, you name it...but when it comes to the promises I have made to myself, they often get broken & quickly. Wow. I am SO thankful for now having this awareness & I am working, every day on KEEPING those PROMISES I’ve made to MYSELF❤️ I would ENCOURAGE you to do the same✨ . . . . . #thankyourachelhollis #youareimportant #keepyourpromisestoyourself #believeinyourselfalways #youaresoworthit #dowhatmakesyouhappy
• I didn’t want to wake up this morning at 5:15am. • I didn’t want to work out since it had been over a week since the last time. • I didn’t want to go without coffee. • I didn’t want to be tired. • I didn’t want to be frustrated when I look in the mirror. • I didn’t want to break another promise to myself. • I didn’t want to compromise my goals. • I didn’t want to give up. • I didn’t want to say it’s not the important. •I didn’t want to start tomorrow. 5-4-3-2-1 GO!!!! #5secondrule #workout #girlwashyourface #keepyourpromisestoyourself #commit #givegrace #Ideservemore #smallgoals #bigwin #newday #startnow
The best promises to keep are the ones you make to yourself! 2.25 mile this morning followed by a little stretching. #ificandoityoucandoit #whatareyouwaitingfor #run #motivation #spondywarrior #keepyourpromisestoyourself
Since I started having hip issues 6-7 years ago my fitness dedication has ebbed and flowed. I’ve gone from body building training and serious Powerlifting training to little to no workouts at all (had a baby in there too). In the last 4 months since I had a total hip replacement I’ve had to take several steps back and re-evaluate how I approach my fitness and wellness. I have always been an athlete. With a prosthetic hip at only 40 I can’t attack workouts like I’m conditioned to. That creates a serious mental dilemma for anyone that is used to it. I’ve had to find patience and grace and look beyond my limitations and still love myself in this foreign body. It hasn’t been easy. It’s a long road to wherever I can end up-it isn’t back because I’ve had to accept that I may never get “back” to anywhere I’ve been. But I can and will work toward the best and healthiest version of me I can be. To grow my roots and remain #rooted I’ve vowed to keep my promises to myself. So I practice mindfulness every day. And I’m moving every day. Moving forward. Growing my roots deeper and stronger. #therootedbody #keepyourpromisestoyourself #howdoyoustayrooted #yourbodyisyourtemple #totalhipreplacementrecovery #therootedmovement
✨SMALL STEP!✨ For one week, DON’T BREAK PROMISES TO YOURSELF. ✨ This one is inspired by @msrachelhollis and her awesome book #GirlWashYourFace ! ✨ What would it be like to commit to yourself for one week? That's it, one week! Take this week to make promises to yourself then do you darnedest to KEEP THOSE PROMISES. They don't have to be huge monster promises, they can be as simple as only eating one cookie or getting up at your first alarm. ✨ The more we keep promises we make to ourselves, the more experience we’ll have with success. The more you experience success, the more you want it. ✨ So let's commit right here, right now, that whatever promise you make to yourself this week you'll keep it. ✨ Who’s with me?! 🙋🏼‍♀️ ✨ #RachelHollis #Promises #SmallStep #AnnieBCoaching #Success #ExperienceSuccess #keepyourpromisestoyourself #KeepYourPromises #OneWeek #YouWithMe #LetsDoIt #HealthyLiving #HealthCoach #HealthyandHappy
Set your intentions for the day...👍🏻 I made a promise to myself that I would get my workout done but I wanted to clean first!! So I stayed true to that promise and got it done...💥💥 It’s not always easy, it’s easy to push off or say I’ll do it tomorrow but remember why you started, why you committed to a program, to yourself...❤️ The struggle is real but the bring is so worth it!💕
Back on the bike this morning, and with some company! It is a short week for me due to a conference in Boston, so have to be extra sure we get our workouts in. Did 7 miles in 28 minutes, burning over 300 calories! I'm feeling good and know I will be a better surgeon this morning as a result! Happy Monday! #morningmotivation #morningworkout #nevermissamonday #cycling #strongnotskinny #strongerthanyesterday #idontsweatisparkle #consistency #selfcare #obgynlife #keepyourpromisestoyourself
🤔Each new day we are blessed with the opportunity to do things differently than how we did them yesterday!! Does that motivate you to make things happen??!!🤗🙌 I am overwhelmed by the amount of people around me that NEED what I have, but don't KNOW they need it. 😕 I encounter people every single day, and overhear them talking about being exhausted😩, not sleeping well😴, needing coffee☕️, energy drinks💥, or soda, being anxious or feeling hopeless😰, craving junk, and feeling run down😔. Some are getting bad news😢👎🏻 on their lab work 📉💉after their annual doctor😷 visit and being put on even more medications💊...which unfortunately(most of the time), just mask the problem instead of getting to ROOT of the issue. 🤦🏼‍♀️The problem is that we don't VALUE our health until we become too sick to ignore it any longer. And when you reach this point it's scary, overwhelming and expensive! You are just ONE DECISION away from a #happier and #healthier LIFE! A life worth LIVING! 👀Don't you see it?! Exhaustion, mood instability, cravings, feeling run down--these are the warning signs to deeper rooted issues. 👄Your body talks. Are you listening?👂🏻 Don't wait until it's screaming for you to pay attention. Make a change...YOU are worth it!❤️ Today IS yesterday's tomorrow! Are you ready to keep that promise to yourself and start your journey to get healthy today?? #makeachange #youareworthit #Liveloved #keepyourpromisestoyourself
"If you constantly make and break promises to yourself, you're not making promises at all. You're talking." -Rachel Hollis . I can't believe I'm in the final week of my 4 day a week fitness program! I wanted to see what would happen when I walked the walk. When I kept a promise to myself. Even when it was hard. Even when I wanted to give up. . Why? Because I love myself enough to keep promises to myself. And because I'm worth it... And so are YOU! . Set goals & crush em! 💪 . Ready to join us?!

“Work hard. Stay humble.” . Words I’ve always lived by, but 36 is teaching me something already, so here’s the revised version: Work Hard. Stay humble. But don’t be afraid to own that hard work and celebrate yourself from time to time. It’s ok! ☺️ . . . I’m sure no one would look at this photo and imagine that woman couldn’t even look at herself in the mirror without crying just a few years ago. Definitely stepped a little out of my comfort zone here but I’m digging it.

Yep. I had all the excuses tonight. Saw this while procrastinating on social media and shelved them. Got my sweat in. Thanks @msrachelhollis ! Working on not being the first person I let down. . . #maketime #worthit #keepyourpromisestoyourself #dreambig #workhard #choosehealth #choosehappy
I friggen did it. I completed my goal of running the distance of half a marathon. For someone who once thought they physically weren't designed for distance running, I sure did surprise myself! The farthest I could run beginning of the summer was 4km before my lungs would be on fire, and then I added a kilometre each consecutive run day. I loved my running journey because the only one who could motivate myself to keep going was me. Everyday that I had scheduled a run for myself, a little part of me dreaded it. During I'd have to break down my distances, "I'm a quarter there" "I'm a third" "I'm a half..." I would tell myself to not concentrate on the daunting distance, not to concentrate on the various pains of my body, not to concentrate on the fact I could stop and walk at any point. Sometimes I didn't understand how I had done it the day before, but if yesterday NaLisa could've done it, today I could go just a little further. Each tiny triumph day by day, until I reached a goal I set for myself, and that is one of the best things I could have done for me 💛 #thefittestiveeverbeen #keepyourpromisestoyourself #thankyoume #selfmotivation #personalvictories #digdeep #youcandoit #500 %improvement #crushinggoals #halfmarathon #runner #run #cardioforthewin #idoitfortherunnershigh #healthyheart #healthylungs #thankyoubody #inspogram
Finally decided to open my agenda for the first time in almost a month. . . Today has been a lost kind of day. Unsure of what I should do, what needs to get done or what I want to happen. . . So when I saw this page as the divider for my birth month, I knew why I have been feeling lost. I’ve been pulling away from my good practices of internal and mental strength. I haven’t been keeping my promises to myself. I’ve been discouraged by my lack of action. . . No more. My 31st birthday is in 3 days. This school year starts the day after. What better time to recommit to myself and my wellness, mentally and physically? . . You are stronger than you think. You are loved more than you know. Act like yesterday never happened. Push forward like you have to earn tomorrow. And whatever you do, keep your promises to yourself. . . . . #keepyourpromisestoyourself #youarestrongerthanyouthink #youareloved #itsoktofeellostsometimes #planner #agenda #justwhatineeded
Excerising first thing in the morning is great.... once it's done. 😀 Getting out of bed and making yourself do it is the hardest part. I've promised myself I would do this and I am determined to stop breaking promises to myself ❣️ As women, especially I think as moms, we tend to put ourselves last because everyone and everything else matters more. We need to change our mindset because WE matter! If we aren't at our best, who will take care of those we love? It's like when you fly they tell you in the event of an emergency, you have to put your own oxygen mask on first or you are no use to help others. Our health is the emergency! If we don't take care of ourselves and care about our health, we won't be able to care for others. 💕Love yourself enough to invest in your health. 💕 I'm looking for women to join my team. Message me if you want to get into a healthier palace and if you have a passion for helping others.
Absolutely love this from @msrachelhollis ... its so true.. • • Are you supposed to be at the?... Gym? Planning? Working towards goals? Helping others? Eating well? Etc etc..... • • The first promises you should keep are the ones to yourself, integrity is something that happens when no one is looking 😉👀 • • • • #keepyourpromises #keepyourpromisestoyourself #madeformore #girlwashyourface #rachelhollis #davehollis #motivation #motivationalspeakers #goals #setgoals #recoverygoals #buisnessgoals #bonbabe #bossbabe #addictedgal
“Whatever standard you’ve set for yourself is where you’ll end up, unless you fight through your instinct and change your pattern.” - Rachel Hollis I started “Girl, Wash Your Face” by Rachel Hollis yesterday, and I’m already obsessed. Each chapter is about a lie we tell ourselves. Chapter 2 is “I’ll start tomorrow.” She talks about how we make so many promises to others and feel bad when we break them, but yet, we’re quick to break promises to ourselves. Oh do I know about breaking promises to myself all too well. I’m a pro at putting things off I don’t want to do. Saying “I’ll do it tomorrow” but never do. I used to purposely not tell anyone I was doing something so I didn’t have to be accountable or let them down. I already felt enough shame about letting myself down. Again. And again. And again. Our subconscious looks at a history of how we’ve tackled similar situations in the past. Our brain and body revert back to what it knows and is most comfortable with. It’s very easy to revert to old habits, especially under stress. No wonder we feel stuck in the same cycle day after day. You know the term, “same shit, different day.” It doesn’t have to be the same shit though. We are in control of our happiness. And I think part of our happiness starts with keeping promises to ourselves! Do you really WANT the things you say you want? Or are you pretending to want them and lying to yourself? Have you kept your word lately? When you decide to do something, do you see it through? Or give up when it gets hard? My health/wellness accountability group is gearing up for our next round starting September 3rd!! If you’re tired of the same crap, tired of FEELING like crap, and tired of letting yourself down, drop me a comment below or PM me! I promise we got you! <3 . . . . #accountability #couragetofly #couragetofirstloveyourself #mindsetcoach #mindsetiskey #keepyourpromisestoyourself #youaregoodenough #whynotyou #rachelhollis #girlwashyourface #personaldevelopment #overcomingshame #loveyoself #thetimeisnow #youareworthit #changeyourthoughts #changeyourlife #youareincontrol #truthbomb #virtualfitfam
How many times have you told yourself “I’ll do it later” or “I’ll do it tomorrow” only to bail on it when “later” or “tomorrow” arrived? 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️ • I mean, I have done this A LOT, especially when it comes to self-care. I put myself on the back burner to give of myself to my daughter. I think of what would make my husband happy before thinking of what I want. Some days, I want to take a few extra minutes to myself to do my hair, or shave my legs, or drink my coffee while it’s hot. But when someone needs me, those are the first things (those things I do just for me) to go out the window. And then hours later when there’s a moment to do something for me, there are 10 other things to be done for my family. So a lot of times I bail on myself. And that’s not fair—I should be treating myself better than that. • Today, I challenge you to make a promise to yourself—whether that be to watch the tv show you’ve been dying to catch up on, to work out, to eat better—and then actually follow through with it!! Do not break that promise to yourself. I promise your soul will feel better afterwards! @msrachelhollis
You guys. I just went to the gym for the first time in um.... 4ish years?!?! Dang, it felt good to move. I went 5 miles on the elliptical, said goodbye to 500+ calories, but most importantly, I did something that I have been wanting AND SAYING I would do for the last 2.5 years. FOR 2.5 YEARS, I HAVE BROKEN PROMISE AFTER PROMISE TO MYSELF. I am just SO over doing that. I’m so over being a master of self-sabotage. I am the very first person I will break a promise to, and it has to stop. It stopped tonight when I walked into the gym and said “Take my money and sign me up”. Now, there are a handful of reasons WHY I finally pushed myself to do this tonight... but the NUMBER ONE reason is that I no longer want to put myself on the backburner. I deserve more than I allow myself; more credit, more permission and more worth. I was #madeformore . ❤️❤️❤️ PS. I totally listened to @msrachelhollis read #girlwashyourface to me on Audible during my workout. 😉 . . #doitforyou #selfcare #selflove #workout #keepyourpromisestoyourself
Yes, I’m looking for you! It’s time to stick to the promises you have made to yourself to eat better and workout. It’s time to stop putting it off until tomorrow!

Well, if this isn’t the #truth I don’t know what is! . I just know that some days are a bit more straightforward than others. . In any case and in every way, we choose how we see our life. .

How often do you break promises to others? . . . Not very often? Okay, now how often do you break a promise to yourself? If you're like me probably more frequently than to others. It's kind of sad when you think about it. . . . So many times I hear about people putting their ideas and goals on the backburner and put others ahead of themselves. We are called to serve others, that's for sure! But that's not what I'm talking about. I really do think that if we begin to keep promises to ourselves especially when it's something that is going to bring more confidence, that confidence and happiness will overflow to others areas of our lives. We'll be a better parent, better spouse, better co-worker and better friend. Plus I think it helps us mentally and emotionally when we keep promises to ourselves. There is always some guilt associated with a broken promise so let's just keep our promises! . . . . . #fitmompnw #truthbomb #girlwashyourface #keepyourpromises #keepyourpromisestoyourself #itsokaytohavegoals #motivationmonday #itsoktohavegoals #momgoals
“Get a life”. We all know those people who say things like that when you say you’re training on a bank holiday! Don’t let them make you think you’re boring or obsessed because you’re spending your time off working on being a better version of yourself instead of putting up statuses on social media about things “getting messy”. (Yawn!) Just tell them: “I’ve got a life, thanks and it’s going to be a long and healthy one!” Here’s my last set of overhead squats. Now I can go home and relax, knowing I’ve done what I said I was going to do! No better feeling than that. Just keep doing the things you said said you were going to do, even when you don’t feel like it or the alternative seems better. That’s how you create good habits which bring results which fuels motivation! #projectme #liftlikeagirl #liftingbeginsat50 #trainlikeagirl #runyourownrace #keepyourpromisestoyourself
So, I’ve been listening to this book during my commute to and from work everyday. I love this book! There’s a chapter that talks about how people are always breaking promises to themselves. After hearing this, I decided to make a promise to myself to get up and move everyday! Today, I walked 3.5 miles and biked 4 miles with my little guy. It’s 7:00 in the evening and I feel great! #girlwashyourface #keepyourpromisestoyourself
What’s the difference between training in Seattle and training in Manhattan, KS you might ask? • About 20 degrees, a pound of sweat loss, and needing an extra dose of determination/willingness to be uncomfortable. • I didn’t ‘feel’ like training today, but I did it anyway, because I said I would. • Pure and simple, keeping my promises to myself over time keeps me accountable—I can’t stand being disappointed in myself. • That and I know, from years of experience, that I will always feel better after exerting myself. • Today was no exception (and I was shocked at how well I did on my Rows in particular—12 cals in 32-33 sec consistently, which is a 10-second improvement from last March). • Give this one from @crossfithinge a shot if you need a quick and intense work session: Every 3 Minutes for 21 Minutes, perform the following: 12 Air Powered Calories 3 Deadlifts (225/155) 6 DxKB Swings 6 Burpees • It’s like @marieforleo says: “To be responsible, keep your word to others. To be successful, keep your word to yourself.” #itshotinhere #somuchsweat #keepyourpromisestoyourself #justkeepshowingup #astrongmindinastrongbody #staystoked #dothework #thisis40something #womenofcrossfit #slangiron #becomeyourbestyou
Posting way late because my day started fast and didn't let up! Got our workout in this morning (after several overnight phone calls) and then immediately left for work and walked right into a delivery that went, thankfully, smoothly. I then saw my three overnight consults in time to start my office patients without delay. I caught up on charts in between patients and during lunch, before finishing the day with a few more patients and my own PT. Whew! What a day!

Day 5- #yogabasics101 Virabhadrasana or Warrior 1- I woke up this morning and thought to myself..I can’t remember the last time I committed to 5 days in a row of anything and then actually followed through with it! And, I didn’t just do the poses I actually spent 20-30 minutes a day practicing yoga. So today I’m not focusing on my form or my outfit, or what the pose stretches. I’m just celebrating the fact that I followed through with a promise to myself. Feeling a little bit like a warrior To be honest 🐲 and it feels awesome! #keepyourpromisestoyourself #yogahelpsmefeelbetter #fitover40 #warriorpose1 #YogaBasics101 .

I did not want to workout today. . . I woke up at 4:30am, worked 8 hours on my feet, never once sitting down and I have to be up at 2am tomorrow morning for work. The only thing I want to do this afternoon is lay on the couch. . . But I made a promise to myself. And I dont break those. Because if you cant keep a promise to yourself than what does that say? So I got in my workout. Only 30mins and done! And I feel better! . . I may not be picking up my house before bed tonight or doing this dishes. The basement may be a complete mess, but I kept my promise. The rest can wait till I get home from work tomorrow😉 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #fitmama #momhustle #nashvillefit #musiccityfit #toddlermama #momstrong #postpartumjourney #keepyourpromisestoyourself #toddlerlife #momlife #naturalmama #girlmomlife

Didn't get my butt up this morning (remember my mention of not being a morning person??), but was lucky enough to have time this afternoon to get leg day in! Afterwards, I made sure to do my stair stretches for my calf muscle to help with healing my #plantarfasciitis Happy Friday Eve! #pushthroughit #noexcuses #afterworkworkout #obgyn #obgynlife #oncall #oncalllife #21dayfix #legday #lowerbody #lowerfix #keepyourpromisestoyourself
My daily mantra this year🖤 Instead of making excuses, try this and see how far it takes you. #goodmorning #positivevibes #keepyourpromisestoyourself
This salad has been my jam on Wednesdays! Prosciutto, watermelon, field greens, feta cheese and while balsamic vinaigrette. To die for! I love having a brief respite during the week, and I have been using this time to do my self improvement/motivational reading time. Lots of highlight moments and teary eyes today! #girlwashyourface #keepyourpromisestoyourself @barriquekitchenandwinebar #iheartsalad #afternoonoff #selfcare #foodie @msrachelhollis #healthydoc #doctorlife #obgynlife #motivationalreading #selfimprovement

Good morning! Upper body coming at cha...working on my biceps 💪 Today is my half day at work, woohoo! Happy Wednesday! #morningmotivation #morningworkout #upperbody #pushups #21dayfix #healthydoc #selfcare #keepyourpromisestoyourself #strongnotskinny #strongerthanyesterday
So, truth... I am not a morning person at all! Surprised since that is exactly when my workouts seem to be? Well, in my life, that is just where it works. In college, I loved an evening workout; but now, my afternoons/evenings are too unpredictable to reliably get my workouts in, so early morning it is! But, it still isn't easy. My alarm goes off a minimum of three times before I get up (my husband is thrilled about this). The point is, it doesn't matter when you do it, but just make sure that you do! Extra bonus of morning workouts? I actually had motivation to do both my hair and makeup today, and it gave me that little extra pep to get through my day, care for my patients and complete all of my tasks, even though I was truly rather tired 😴 #motivation #makeitwork #noexcuses #morningmotivation #morningworkout #selfcare #healthydoc #obgynlife #doctorlife #keepyourpromisestoyourself #neverstoptrying #youdoyou #ifeelpretty #notamorningperson
You have the choice today, and every day! 💪🏾You can throw in the towel or you can use it to wipe the sweat off your face!!. . What do you think will be the most satisfying? Quitting or pushing through to see what is on the other side! . I will tell you I have quit many times on things and on myself. And I have also push through many times. And pushing through was the most satisfied I have felt in my life!! . Stop selling yourself short, just because you not sure HOW doesn’t mean that is reason to quit! * Easy first step to start pushing yourself to build the habit is through workouts. . 👉🏾Check out my stories on IG OR FB Biz Page to see how a simple song help me use the towel to wipe my face!!
You can't see it in this picture but y'all, I am drenched in sweat...down to the little drop I could feel on my chin! Last night didn't come with great sleep, but I promised myself and my husband we would knock it out this morning, and so, we did! 6.5 miles on the bike and over 300 calories burned. Have a rockin Tuesday! #pushthroughit #cardio #cycling #morningmotivation #morningworkout #plantarfasciitis #selfcare #healthydoc #obgynlife #doctorlife #strongnotskinny #strongerthanyesterday #dedication #keepyourpromisestoyourself

“Whatever standard you’ve set for yourself is where you’ll end up… unless you fight through your instinct and change your pattern.” @msrachelhollis #GirlWashYourFace • A week ago, I promised myself I’d go for a walk outside at least 3 times a week while I’m working my way back from being sick. Today was one of those days… and then it rained. It would’ve been easy to break my promise, but I chose to push through and walk my pups before the light sprinkle turned into a torrential downpour followed my some core exercises. • If someone we were friends with were constantly making and breaking promises to us, we’d eventually stop counting on that friend to follow through with their commitments. Yet, we do the same to ourselves more than anyone else. • It’s time to stop breaking promises to ourselves. Start small if you must, but start setting goals and keeping your own promises. You owe it to yourself! • 👀 Peep my photobombing pup in the background 🐶 . . . . . #dontwaitfortomorrow #starttoday #rachelhollis #madeformore #keepyourpromisestoyourself #advocare #advomom #momlife #momboss #mom #momtrepreneur #momsofboys #photobomber #goalgetter #goaldigger #setgoals #crushthem
Despite it being Saturday and I'm on call, I made sure this workout happened this morning! I came home from an early morning delivery, allowed myself some rest but then hopped to it! I may have tired eyes, but this is just real life for me. #noexcuses #keepyourpromisestoyourself #girlwashyourface #21dayfix #dirtythirty #doctorlife #obgyn #obgynlife #oncalllife #oncall #babycatcher #atyourcervix #bosslady #reallife #tiredeyes #neverthelessshepersisted
Another day... On the left was my warm-up for more PT, on the right was my workout later (where I modified the warm up on the bike) that I managed to squeeze in this afternoon since I didn't get up for it this morning. I recently started reading #girlwashyourface and am concentrating on keeping promises to myself, and that includes completing my workouts! All of this in the midst of caring for my patients today leading into a weekend of call. #physicaltherapy #plantarfasciitis #21dayfix #lowerfix #jellolegs #obgyn #obgynlife #oncall #oncalllife #selfcare #keepyourpromisestoyourself #strongnotskinny #strongerthanyesterday #keepgoing #noexcuses #doctorlife #motivationalreading

This summer was a busy one with lots of 'new.' The new house in a new city was the biggest change and it has had the largest ripple effect. I now have a new and loooong commute into work. Mindset is everything. I'm looking at this commute as productive alone time. I will listen to be empowerd! This includes trainings about my business, professional development, podcasts, music. I will also make calls to family and friends (who should I call first?!) Wasting time isn't an option. This also means a new morning routine. I spent the majority of Sunday giving myself an internal pep talk. Literally. I was kinda a zombie walking around because I was so focused on talking myself into my new morning routine. The mantra I kept telling myself? I don't FEEL like doing it. For some reason, this worked for me. There's a lot I don't FEEL like doing, but instead of avoiding the inevitable, I made a conscious choice to face an early morning head on. I've done a lot of professional development on mindset, making choices and facing fear but it's all just words until you actually put it into action. My advice is whatever you've been fearing or feeling, do it. When you promise yourself something, KEEP YOUR PROMISE TO YOURSELF. What you see below is my Monday morning set up. I was stoked to give that new milk a try (loved it!) See the time on the coffee pot? Yea baby, that reads 5:33 AM. I did it. And so can you. What promise will you keep to yourself, today? #madeformore #movemountains #keepyourpromisestoyourself #morningritual #coffee #journal #selfreflect #meditate #writtenword #luckymamabear #newhome #newlife #startsnow
I break promises to myself way too easily—big ones and small ones. So today, I wrote myself a reminder. It was originally supposed to be a reminder to not eat a food I think is giving me trouble, but it may mean more today as I’m struggling with being overtired which (for me) opens the floodgates to being fifty shades of less than cool, calm, and collected. (Heck, when my floss got stuck in between my molars, I felt my lower lip quiver this morning.) Yep, it’s just one of those days. It doesn’t make me less complete, or less worthy, or less uniquely and wonderfully me. It does, however, mean today is probably not the best day to go for cheerleading tryouts. Oh boy—imagine! Can’t you see it? “My a** is twitching. You (peppy) people make my a** twitch.” 🤣 #promises #keepyourpromises #keepyourpromisestoyourself #remindertomyself #reminder #youarestillworthy #eliminationdiet #eggsdontloveme #iloveeggs #overtired #sleepdeprived #bekindtoyourself #selfawareness #instahealth #instafit #instanutrition #nutrition #frenchkiss #favoritemovie #youpeoplemakemyasstwitch #bestmovielines #itsoktofeel #stopapologizing #girlyougotthis
