✨You will find that the more you work at something the more you believe in it✨ About a year ago I took a plunge that even I, didn’t know what I was undertaking. Medical Coding. I know it sounds so easy alpha numeric codes for surgeries, and issues in the medical world. It is not! 🙅🏼‍♀️ Then to my surprise I finished with honors my @careerstep course, but I had to get my CPC. Everyone who knew about the exam gave me the vibe I couldn’t pass the first time- to their dismay I did. I passed it! My first try! And I haven’t stopped believing since. Turns out you need a year to remove that ugly “A” for apprentice status before any employer will give you the time of day. The truth is they don’t know the tenacity and grit I have. I just won’t quit til I get what I want!!!!! 💪🏻 #thesearchcontinues #imnotgivingup #mamadidntraisenoquitter #thereisnoquit #neverquit #nevergiveup #jobsearch #cpc #cpca #medicalcoding #medicalcodingandbilling #studentproblems #apprenticeship #medicalbilling #aapc #ibelieveinme #themindset #believeyoucan #neversaynever #determination #grit #grace #youcangetit #youcangetitifyoureallywant #howbaddoyouwantit #workingforit #workforwhatyouwant #neversettle #getoutofyourcomfortzone #mondaymood
We’re all out here doing our best. Every day something is learned. Over the years we change. We gain new perspectives, but hold on to our core values and morals. We want to love and give the best life we can. Guilt and comparing ourselves to others is the hardest thing to overcome. I’m working to change that a little more each day. • Remember social media is a tool. If we all understand many of us share the joys and triumphs of our days, it doesn’t mean we don’t struggle and fail. I find it’s because I’m too messed up and don’t think to myself, “yea I want to grab my phone and document this.” • Fun fact: as I was posting this, JT wanted to give back his bottle as we are driving to Disneyland. I try to grab it and he throws a fit because he only wants @jamesalan_ to grab it. Then did it again with his Mickey toy. Then I asked if he wanted me to play with him. He said NO. I asked if wanted dad, he said, YES! Guess who is in tears 🙋🏾‍♀️Not because I don’t want him to love on his dad and have that with him, but because he has a preference of something in THIS moment. He’s learning. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still crying because it still doesn’t feel good. 😭😫 #jamestheodorelong #nolanfrancislong #loveyoulongfamilytime #life #momstrong #boymom #bethechangeyouwanttoseeintheworld #thereisnoquit #raisekindhumans @birthwithoutfear

Because little boys can learn what strong is from their moms, too. They’re always watching. They want to do what you do. You’re their whole world. Give them something to imitate that spreads goodness, positivity and kindness. #thereisnoquit #mindset #bethechangeyouwishtoseeintheworld #snatch #backsquat #inmomsshoes #strongmom #pregnantandpostpartumathleticism #lifeandweightlifting #jamestheodorelong
Over the weekend I had the opportunity to interview @lamar_drock , owner of @resetmindbody float therapy in Ocean Beach, CA. Derrick explained what the benefits of Sensory Deprivation and how it works. I learned a lot and had a blast doing so. We were joined by two other rad people, @italia_black_11 and @whereintheworldisderekblack / @method_wisdom Give this episode a listen. You’ll learn something new and laugh when you’re not learning. @thereisnoquitmindset #thereisnoquit #everybodyloveeverybody #goodvibesonly #mindset
Check out Episode 14 of the @thereisnoquitmindset podcast. It is mostly an explanation of why I go overboard sometimes when I coach. I am passionate about helping people reach their potential/work towards their goals. Occasionally, I get carried away. I don’t have all the answers and I make plenty of mistakes, but I am committed to learning how to improve at all times in an effort to help others improve. I am infinitely grateful for every coach who has helped me learn about coaching, to every athlete who has allowed me the honor of coach them and for the patience everyone has while I drift away on tangents or tell terrible jokes in a class. I’m a big believe that the coach-athlete relationship should be one of honesty. Sometimes this means people might hear some stuff that doesn’t give them the warm fuzzies in the tum tum. I don’t coach for the warm fuzzies. I coach to help you get results. Warm fuzzies are further down the list. Honesty is an act of love and I love what I do all day every day. #thereisnoquit #everybodyloveeverybody #goodvibesonly #mindset #success #crossfit #fitness #weightlifting #peoplehelpingpeople

Episode 13: CrossFit; The Good, The Bad and The Beautiful. I love what I do. I love the people I coach, the gym I work in, my last gym, the gym before that and pretty much every gym I’ve been fortunate enough to work out in over the last several years. However, my dedication to teaching people about fitness and support of CF as my preferred fitness regime doesn’t mean I don’t think there are some huge problems with it. No facility I’ve ever been to, the gym I owned before included, is above improvement. I’ve thought the thoughts I share in this episode for years and I figured it was finally time to upload them to the matrix. #thereisnoquit #goodvibesonly #everybodyloveeverybody #mindset

This series of pictures reflects how I felt as I finished #ironmanohio on Sunday. It was as hard a #70point3 as I’ve ever completed and placed me in medical after the finish line. I chose to wear my #teampinkyswear kit again this season to elevate awareness for @pinkyswearfoundation even though I’m not trying to raise funds. Check them out!

HARD WORK. It pays off later, LAZINESS pays off now. There’s a different between resting/recovery and making excuses. Working hard doesn’t always mean going hard.

I was honored to be interviewed by my long time friend and former business partner @jewshman , about the adversities and challenges I’ve encountered on my journey to helping thousands of people in my communities and ultimately owning 2 gyms @onelovechino @onelovewalnut ! Everybody sees the finished product today, but a lot of people never got to see all the failed programs, loss time, loss money, and mistakes that were made along the way. Mistakes will ALWAYS happen, it’s what you do with those mistakes that will determine your ultimate success or failure! Josh is the “J,” in the former “DNJ Fitness,” and he created @thereisnoquitmindset , which is a mindset of always working towards your goals no matter what the struggles and obstacles you WILL encounter are! Also promoting a positive mindset to enable yourself to overcome these challenges.

#tbt to the @juggernauttraining classic in 2015 where I missed my first two lifts and HAD to make a 94kg c&j to total. 1. Dramatic much? 2. This reminds me WHY I am choosing to take more time to build strength. Turns out, being strong and doing the “little” things will get you where you want to be. 3. The other day @jewshman told the weightlifting class, “anyone can clean, champions make jerks.” That phrase is forever burned into my mind because I bombed out my last two nationals because doubt and fear got me on a platform. Other goal—only miss jerks because of something technical or because it’s too heavy, not because I’m scared. #legs4ness #roadto59 #yayforanextrakilo #illgettherewhenigetthere #slowissmooth #thereisnoquit #lettherebelift #buildingthefoundation #operationgetstrongAF

Proud of this little mare! She’s getting things figured out with her jockey for the summer pretty quickly! She’s been traveling hard over the past 2 weeks and hasn’t slowed down one bit.

You know that moment in a workout where your mind starts screaming at you to stop? Where you’re pretty sure 1 more rep might kill you? Yeah, that moment. Lean into that. THROW yourself into that. The. Do 2 more. Do 3 more. Push until you actually HAVE to stop. NOT when the mental game begins to be played. Why? Because FUCK THAT DOUBT! “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” (Yes I just said fuck then quoted Winnie the Pooh.) BUT don’t stop pushing when the workout is over. Use that physical strength when the mental strength just isn’t there. That mountain? WHEN (we don’t play with that “if” bullshit) you DOMINATE it you will realize it was a grain of sand. You got this. You are the baddest of asses. Go dominate 💪🏼 . . . #toddlerteacher #pushon #iamdetermined #thereisnoquit #iteachtoo #realstagram #bipolardepression #ineedtoworkout #semicolontattooproject #fuckanxiety #winniethepooh #addictedtonike #fuckbipolardepression

I definitely feel this way right now! Things are good and life is slowly coming my way! I’m just relaxing and letting it come!
Sometimes admitting when we make mistakes helps us get to our ultimate goals. The other day I posted a video of me snatching. Not a lot of weight. Nothing crazy. Paired with my rant about doing what’s best for my journey. But after I posted it, I actually had more reservations. I am aware that some women look to me as an example for “fit pregnancy” and postpartum “comebacks.” So it would be a huge disservice not to address the biggest thing I learned in the last 24 hrs. . . . I am ONLY 8 weeks postpartum. The reason why Nationals is a goal I set for myself is because weightlifting has been my saving grace. I wanted to prove to myself what I could do and overcome my fears on a platform. It’s also something that I find a lot of happiness doing. So, I reached out to @brianna.battles. I asked her what a good timeline would be. She asked me why it was important. What was MY big picture? In our conversation, I realized the goal of Nationals in itself is the journey. It’s the process. So, why the rush to touch a barbell? Because my excitement and ego. Yet, rebuilding my foundation and getting stronger through patience and diligence will actually HELP my performance. As @jewshman used to say, the weights aren’t going anywhere. I simply needed a reminder to understand my WHY. These two little faces. They are my big picture. If I can’t spend a few months or even a few years If that’s what it takes being patient and working on what I NEED to, how can I ask that of them as they grow up in aspect of life? It doesn’t mean I can’t reach my goals, it just means I am going to put a priority on what matters most. It clicked when Bri told me where I am now and what I enjoy doing should complement my ultimate goal, not challenge it. My overall health and well being (physically, mentally and emotionally) after popping baby #2 in less than 2 years is the main goal because without that, I can’t be mother I want to be nor can I be the example I want to set. . . . I’m still learning (and will never stop) as I go through these chapters in life as a mother. #pregnantandpostpartumathleticism #boymom #raisekindhumans #bekindtoyourself #thereisnoquit #family #mindset #coachesneedcoachestoo

@timkennedymma I found the quitter today thanks to @thebeardof_i3 . Thier names are core strength and cardio. I will fix both of these. When I'm done, I'll find the next quitter in me and push him forward as well. There will be no quit left in me when I'm finished. #keepmovingforward #findthequitter #thereisnoquit #failforward #powerlifter
“Even in the hard, get your mind in the right place” I had to repeat this over and over to myself this morning! #thereisnoquit #🍑day #🔥🔥🔥 #EatPLANKLove
FIRED . ..by my agent .. but ..💜 #actorslife 2.26. 2018 and 4.25.18 #daysofourlives #lottonumbers maybe? Events: My agent called with a 310pm audition for 2.26.18. On 2.26.18 , I was scehduled to come back home from a 4 day work trip , MKE 🛫 DEN 🛫 BUR, to land at 230pm. I didnt want to cancel. I only cancel when its impossible. It was not impossible. I asked for the latest possible audition time. Got a 5pm. Landed. Rushed home, barely ironed my shirt, powdered my face and threw on a lip and then rushed to my audition. As I pulled up, frantically putting on my heels while paying for parking, I saw a girl leaving, looking like me physically but much less crazed. Entered and signed in, right behind another girl, looking similar to me but much less tired. I auditioned. Wasn't my best. Was certain I wouldn't get the role (And i didn't). Went in my car, and for the first time that day, took a deep "I made it" breath. Took a video to send to my sister at 5:39pm. (My Snapchat was still on MKE time.. neither of us had caught up to the present moment yet). .. and then I took a few more deep "center yourself" breaths. Recorded another at 5:41pm. Better. A smile.Then my stomach, only having plane snacks that day, dictated I find the closest restaurant. So I got moving. And forgot about these videos. I found them 2 weeks ago. Why? I was trying to figure out the last audition I made it to for my agent because I had just received a termination letter. 4.25.18. It was a rough reality. But fair. I had not made it to many of her auditions in the past 2 yrs. And even when I did, I was usually rushing from work or hurrying outta there to work. So it was fair. And a long time coming. I wrote her back. Thanked her for her hard work and warmth. And let her know I was gonna come back for her 😋 And I will. I wasn't upset. I made decisions. And accept the consequences. And breathed through it all, never once cursing but wholeheartedly trusting in the ways my life's events were and are unfolding. Always breathing. Now, the strangest and most beautiful things have happened since then 😍 And I will update in upcoming posts. For now, my self-care PSA is BREATHE. JUST BREATHE 😍
So few seem to have unbreakable resolve these days. A man should not make his decisions lightly if he thinks he cannot see the task through to completion. When others know only death will sway you from your destination things begin to fall into place. #ThereIsNoQuit #Determination #OneDirection #Forward

The importance of proper squat shoes cannot be understated; you need shoes with a higher heel so that your squat form doesn’t suffer. And remember squats are kingmakers! #squats #squatsarekingmakers #gymtime
Finally finished my last exam and even though it took way too long, I am still happy that I powered through and will finally get my bachelor’s degree as a Civil Engineer - I am especially pleased with myself as I never really liked math or physics growing up and had to take the time to learn everything from the ground up - as an adult. So in short - if I can become an Engineer, then YOU can do anything! Don’t let anything stop you! 👆🥇🏋️‍♂️🏋️‍♀️👍👨‍🎓😁🤗 #keepgrinding #develop #learnandapply
We got better today. Setbacks and frustrations are part of the growth process. #thereisnoquit #Family #nextmanup #gameready
Finally got to workout with my dear friend Alicia this morning. She has a nice set up in her garage and follows the @street_parking program. I didn’t do the actual programmed stuff but it has bits of DT in it so I did the modified pregnant version. 65# and rest a bunch between 😂😁 I was tired. Real time rest as shown. I’m lucky to have friends that help me get my fitness in and that will also make sure my kid is taken care of so I can take care of myself too ❤️ #ittakesavillage #friendship #yourvibeattractsyourtribe #goodvibesonly #lettherebelift #thereisnoquit @twochicksmodernvintage

After not being able to fully commit to completing the @crossfitgames Open in 2016 and 2017, my goal this year was to do just that. Finish. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to close out the 5 weeks than doing the last workout in front of my biggest supporters. Thanks to @marissamnm for making that happen, and a huge thanks to @benchmark_photography ’s amazing work in capturing these moments. I also want to give shouts to: @scott_stare and @da_bulls_bears_joe for keeping the “no reps” to a minimum lol, and for being overall good dudes in general. @collin_meeves - “Doc” “The Professor” “The Magician” for having the patience to work with me, and for somehow, constantly finding ways to help me improve, despite my inherent lack of natural athletic ability. @resolution_crossfit for hosting an amazing 5 weeks of Friday Night Lights, and for making the Gym a place I look forward to spending time at everyday. Lastly - @jewshman and @v_reyes to whom I will always be thankful for introducing me to the world of Fast Exercise. 🤙🏽 #thereisnoquit #intheopen #18pointDone #paytheman #crossfit #resolutioncrossfit #fam #broreps
The sweetest surprise to end the 2018 @crossfitgames Open. @bj_seeley & Kate put Nolan’s name on the back of the @crossfit_chinohills Open shirts. I have been extremely lucky to have been surrounded by so many supportive people through the last 5 weeks. Being 29-33 weeks pregnant was more challenging mentally to make sure I was smart. I modified every single workout, but there everyone was cheering me on. Thank you to everyone for all your efforts and hard work through all these workouts. You all motivate and inspire me to be a better human each day! 💙❤️#crossfit #community #scaledplusdivision #ppaopen #momstrong #thereisnoquit #lettherebelift #crynessaisback #nowyouallknow #itisntjusthormones #thisisme
For the third time my calf injury is getting worse, there will not be any snatch, clean and jerk or squats aka no fun It's not hurting as much as it used to so I guess one week should pull it off However I now welcome you to a new temporary account with more biceps pictures and other crazy shit that I will probably come up with than weightlifting PR's and bar slams (for now)👊 #fitfam ? _ #weightlifting #ornot #thereisnoquit #StillKillingIt #workharder #fitspo #driven #flexing #liftheavyshit
A very appropriate #tbt . 6 years ago when 11.6 = 12.5. This is why I LOVE the open. You get to see YOUR progress. I find it much more fun to see the level of fitness that has risen among women. Back in 2012, muscle ups weren’t that common for ladies, 135 was a heavy clean and apparently my score was only 26 reps less than @anniethorisdottir 😂 This Open has been a great test of my mindset making sure I am being smart through this chapter of my second pregnancy. Can I do C2B? Sure. Can I do them strict so I don’t over extend? Yea. But can I do them without coning? Nope. So I won’t. I am thankful I have had a coach like @jewshman who has always supported me and helped me be the best athlete I can be through the last 7 Open seasons- competitive, postpartum or pregnant. #ppaopen #circa2012 #intheopen #crossfit #crossfitopen2018 #friendship #besties #beforeallthebabies #thereisnoquit #lettherebelift #goodvibesonly
There is no quit button on my journey.

18.4 aka “Back to the Drawing Board” aka “You must unlearn, what you have learned” • • • Big thanks to @benchmark_photography for the amazing job in making me look like I did SOME work at FNL, and another big shout to the #lambertohana (especially baby “E”) for letting me take another whack at the workout. @cassandraellen__ @da_bulls_bears_joe @leftcoastcrossfit • • • One more week to go until I announce my retirement... then proceed to make an epic Michael Jordan style comeback with the Tune Squad in 2019. • • • #intheopen #18point4 #onemoretogo #thereisnoquit #mindset #airjordan #spacejam #sundayfunday
Look what I found! The only thing that’s the same now as in this photo from 2013 are our fabulous high pony tails. Different last names & two kids each later...we’ve come full circle. Sometimes we laugh and think, remember when we were good this stuff?! 😂 But we’re stronger women now than we were 5 years ago. Motherhood does that. Love you @kristennessa !

I can’t sleep. My stomach growled. I went to get some cereal. As I grabbed the box of captain crunch I realized I keep saying I will eat better this pregnancy, and yet I haven’t. Very little effort has gone into it. I don’t mean as if I were “dieting” or not trying to gain weight. I mean like the basics. You know actually eating 3 meals a day that have vegetables and protein in it. Being a mom is hard in this time where everything is is made to be easy. Workout through pregnancy=ridicule for potentially harming the baby or not staying healthy. Eating well = being too hard on yourself or accused for wanting to not gain too much weight. Doing anything for yourself= too selfish/not doing your job or assumes perfection in their life. There’s always something. Someone has something to say. But really, it comes down to WHY. Why are you doing what you do? I workout as much as I can because I feel better when I do. I want to continue to keep the habit and lead by example to my kids that I can stay active to keep up with them. I want to eat better because I know how hard and disciplined it can be when I only had to worry about myself. It’s harder now with a toddler who won’t eat anything so I eat whatever he doesn’t so then I get into a frenzy and lose all self control. I do not want to head down that path I used to be on, especially now that I have tiny people observing what I do. It has to start now. I guess I had a moment. So, at 12:36am I had a glass of chocolate milk and some raw broccoli dipped in ranch. Baby steps. #momrant #takecareofyourself #shithappens #beaboutit #birthfit #makechoices #leadbyexample #thereisnoquit #momlife #pregnantdiariesofvanessalongVol2
I had a weak workout today. . At one point I looked at the dumbbells during my incline chest presses in confusion. "Did I grab the wrong weight?!" . I didn't. . I was motivated, I was feeling it....I just felt...weak. . So I lowered the weight and kept pushing. . This happens sometimes. You have weak days and you have strong days. . But weak or strong you have to get it done, there is no turning back and going home. . Do the work, the results will follow. . #chestday #gymtime #benchpress #iam1stphorm #fat2fit #dowork #keepworking #maximumeffort #neverquit #thereisnoquit

My limits are mine, I own them therefore I can choose to break them. I used to do a 12 minute mile like nothing on a run, today it took 17 minutes, so I jogged an extra 5 just to teach my body it can do better and will get stronger 👍💪 #cardio #weightlossjourney #dadbod #fitness #fitnative #proudnative #pushhard #ownit #thereisnoquit #thereisnolimit #nativefitness #strivingtobehealthy #mylifemyadventure
❗️I beg of you to keep fighting, keep studying, keep pushing, keep grinding. We all need help at some point and it’s okay. However it’s not okay to QUIT. To say I CAN’T. My grandparents used to say to my brother and I “there is no can’t in the dictionary”. There are times when I want to just give up. But to this day that phrase sticks in my mind every single minute of every single day, and it gets me through the tough times. So tough it out, push to the end, and live your life as a champion 🏆 #thereisnoquit #yesyoucan #here2win #allin #dailymotivation #goalgetter . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #inspire #passion #positivity #believe #faith #successful #motivation #bodybuilding #fitness #SJUSA #training #straightjacketusa #lifestyle #goals #dedication #grind #hardwork #aspiretoinspire #consistency #believeinyourself
The open is finally here...yay🙌 as we go into the next 5 weeks remember it don't matter if you have to scale a couple workouts or if you go the whole open RX'd you are freaking amazing! It's gonna be hard but what is gonna make us even better is that we don't have an ounce of quit in us because when we get to that point that is when we will push harder!! #crossfit #theopen #letthegamesbegin #beast #thereisnoquit #open18point1 #crossfiter #beyourowngreatness
There is no quit. There is only things that slow you down or stop you for a period. Then you have too restart witch is hard so don't stop #keeprunning #life #gym #work #thereisnoquit #keeppushing
