10 years of training with the last 5 years as strict hypertrophy & conditioning. Visibly, what is the difference between somebody like me & any of the top fitness personalities? Anybody with fame & celebrity status on social media is limited by social media at the same time. Many have been putting themselves out there, chasing a high follower/view count, & in many cases- working very hard to make this happen. If this post is delivering a message, it would be that a respectable body of work can be put together without validation or recognition or social media encouragement. Think for yourselves and feel for yourselves. Focus on things that matter most, like the people you actually know and love rather than the strangers whose approval you are striving to obtain. Be the realest person you know. I'm not questioning anybody's work ethic here. I'm questioning the directions & motives for the work. Trust your instincts & be more confident in yourself, & don't take that to mean put yourself out there more & be more outspoken about your thoughts & feelings (that's something that I am working toward, but I feel I'm an anomaly in this). It means have the self-worth to know that you are doing life well when you love & trust yourself. It means view things from as many perspectives as you can before opening your mouth. Do something original & profound. That's motivational. The world has too many with a hunger to be understood & not enough with a thirst to understand. I'll take my life & my physique over anybody else's, & too many are lying to themselves when their reply to this is 'well of course, me too!' I don't know who I'm reaching with this post, & it doesn't matter any more than who I am. Don't be a 🐑. Be a 🐐. Do it for yourself & your loved ones. No audience needed. No recognition needed. Validate yourself.

I was born and raised in rural Virginia. When the rains would come, the rivers running through our valley would flood and destroy what felt like everything. Today I live far away from where I grew up, but my thoughts are with the families affected by Hurricane Florence. If you feel inclined to help, please join myself, @hgtv

It doesnt matter if they dont value you. It doesnt matter if they forget you. It doesnt matter if you are just on the list of things, just something they have that day. It doesnt matter if you aren't a priority.
What do you think of yourself? Love yourself in order to love others. Know your own value so you'll know when others dont treat you how you should be treated.

Today the peace and quiet won over the workout. 🤷🏼♀️ I wouldn’t say I lacked motivation today as I’m in a routine for working out and it’s just what I do! .
But... Honestly, I sat in this chair for an hour today. No phone. Just sat and watched out the window. Not really any thoughts... just quiet. A busy day awaits so it’s nice to just really breath every now and again. .
What do you do to help you relax? .

Happy Thursday! 🌟🌎
Today I want to share with you the most profound source of creativity I have--my visioning practice.
Visioning is a way to step out of the everyday minutiae, get a bird’s-eye view of your life, and connect or reconnect to your dreams for yourself and for the world. Those dreams are your vision.
Your vision and your work are inextricably intertwined. Whether you own a business or are an employee or a freelancer, how we work for ourselves and others greatly impacts our imprint in the world.
I found my vision by asking myself a series of questions. Questions that went deep into the context of my work and my beliefs.
The questions that bring us to our vision will vary for everyone. To get you started, you can download a free 5-page VisionSheet (link in bio!). I created this worksheet so that other people could build on it and start to create their own visioning practice.
Some of these questions could be:
What do you want to see happen in the world? How do you want to participate? How do you want your work to impact the world? What do you do best? Where is your expertise? What are you passionate about?
If you haven't thought about your own vision for your life, for your work, and for your every day, consider doing it now. Watch what happens--bit by bit, your life will shift towards your vision.
You'll start to inch toward a path that will be both interesting and fulfilling, and maybe sometimes scary. But the scary part is important--facing and overcoming our fears will get us to where we really need to be.🌟🌎

Would you allow your children to drink soda and eat junk all day long? Me neither so why do you sabotage yourself? If you don’t love yourself, why should you expect anyone else to love you? In order to take care of others, you HAVE to make yourself a priority. What you eat. What you drink. What you think. Self care isn’t selfish, it’s necessary #selflove #selfcare #mindbodyspirit #youdeserve #priorities #healthylifestyle #loveyourself
I hope he got all the silly people in my community, spending that money on Jordan’s WALKING To the store!!! #priorities
I found this photo while learning something about my character online via institute on character. Choosing your priorities in life is the most important think at least for me. It could be anything which is imbibed in your character and what you really need and just go all for it. I am not really talking about the worldly desire of fame, power or money but the internal need for love 💕 appreciation, savouring, and gratitude as an ordinary self

Giving it my all today, how about you? 💪🏼🔥
See that guy peaking out behind me? He's still showing up each morning! I don't think he ever thought he'd be the type to wake up early and workout... I never thought it would be me! If you know us, you know we love our sleep. But we've figured out that if we want to make our health a priority, something was gonna have to give... If you watch us each day, showing up for ourselves and each other. Thinking I'm just not a morning person, know that it can happen, and that it's so much easier with a support group.
So join us each morning! Prioritize your health now so you won't wish you had later. Together we'll all be able to reach our goals!
No breakky. GF pasta for lunch. Nothing for dinner because getting my hair done was more important.
Water intake = horrendous
Amont of steps taken isn't even worth advising....
Im writing off today.

Waiting sort of patiently in town for Dad to finish up with his shopping. He really takes forever- I can’t imagine what is so important. Does he not know it’s lunchtime?! #priorities #hurryup #shoptillfreddrops
Have you experienced snooty, selective trash collectors? My trash can is poop central so there would be a lot of effort involved in picking around poo bags to get to non-poo trash, and then tossing the poo bags back in the bin. Apparently, they are just selectively selective and only do this to some customers. Whew, what a relief. P.S. - the sign is hard to read, not a great design! Really Bad! P.S. 2 - ponder this: would you rather step in it?

Just thinking about his sandwich from the other day while I’m in the most boring class 😭 -
Just a reminder to take care yourself and make sure you’re eating throughout the day. I know we all get busy but you are important enough to take time for a meal, a snack, a mental break. It makes all the difference I promise 💕
Let's close the wage gap! Shout out to Ladies Get Paid. They host town halls, and talks to teach you to "get paid what you deserve".
Time to start doing my pull-ups without the mini band! The beginning of this year my goal was to improve & build my pull-up, but then our goal of moving to N.C. became a reality quicker than expected so my fitness goals took a backseat (i didn’t stop training). I look at this video and see many things I need to work on and where I lost some strength & technique. Remember life happens and our goals will shift in priority the key is to make sure not to neglect any one area of your life. There will be times when certain areas need more attention but that doesn’t me it’s healthy for us to ignore the rest. So while I haven’t progressed my pull up as I would have liked I still consistently trained 3 days per week because I’m committed to a healthy lifestyle!

When you walk into class 20 minuets late, but you’ve got your Chick-fil-A breakfast with you. #priorities
Truly nothing more, important than taking care of your self inner. So your outer self can shine brighter.
Or one day you will be paying more for sick care
“TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY, ITS THE ONLY PLACE YOU HAVE TO LIVE."
Be adamant that any activity, experience or interaction that does not move you directly forward in your priority areas is not a focus at this time and must be sidelined or abandoned.
If you want to change your life, you need to change your priorities.
just action and consistency.

Truth is you can’t truly enjoy life or wealth, without taking care of your temple.
Reason you see many celebrities dedicated to it, it’s not fad it’s a lifestyle choice. BALANCE there is always time
