COMPARE YOURSELF TO YOURSELF

Okay ladies, let’s face it…since we were little girls, the media has bombarded us with what we should look like, and some of us bought into it and would feel not so awesome about ourselves (been there!). Now that we’re more fabulous and wiser, we SHOULD feel confident...

  • It’s been a while since I’ve done chin-ups!Are chin ups easier than pull-ups? Yes, for most people!
🤔
Why? Because although both are pulling movements...they have a different setup and there are differences in strength and which muscles get used.
💪
Chin-ups:
🔹Underhand grip with palms facing you
🔹Use shoulder extension, where elbows come down and back from the front
🔹Biceps are used more in the pull
🔹Usually can be done in higher volume
🤷🏽‍♀️
So should you do pull-ups or chin-ups??
Do BOTH!!
🙌
(but if I HAD to do one type MORE than the other...I would do more pull-ups to benefit the type of training I do☺️)
  • Oh heyyy look who’s feeling like a legit😜 soccer player in her @nikelosangeles team USA jersey!!

🤩
What was your favorite team sport you played? Mine was definitely soccer! ⚽️

Anyone else find themselves saying and/or thinking “I can’t wait for therapy” several times a week? 🙋‍♀️ I know I do! No shame in the therapy game. I’ve been in therapy for almost a decade. In the beginning it was stabilizing crises and learning coping skills. Now, it helps keep me grounded and balanced by giving me space to process and delve deeper, to learn about myself and continue managing my mental health. I’m grateful for being able to participate in therapy, because unfortunately it is inaccessible to so many—especially those in marginalized communities. My hope is that one day it will be more readily available for everyone who needs it. And I hope to be in a position where I can help make that a reality through my own path as an art therapist and counselor. 💖

  • It’s REALLY starting to get time consuming and 😴boring to think about our bodies the way we do!
🧠
How many thoughts do we have daily about our bodies from an aesthetic perspective? Probably A LOT!!! (I’m guilty too!!!)
😬
We need a to avoid being OVERLY distracted with cellulite, stretch marks, rolls, body fat percentage, cut muscles, 🙄bikini bods, body goals, etc.
🤷🏽‍♀️
Do you think men waste as much brain power⚡️ thinking about this stuff? NOOOOO!
✨
Let’s do better ladies!!!
✨
We have let ourselves become obsessed with it and let social pressures dictate how we should feel about our bodies.
💡
 Ways to help redirect that brain power...
🔸Focus on how you feel over aesthetics
🔸Think about the awesome things your body does
🔸Redirect your thoughts to what good can you do in this world for others
🔸Think about something you’re grateful for
🔸Call somebody you love
🔸Learn something new
🔸 Teach someone something
🔸Remember one day we’ll be old and wrinkly and none of this will matter 😜

It has been an AMAZING year teaching and I can’t fully express how much I LOVE my job!!!
😭
It makes me teary-eyed thinking about how FULFILLING my days are and how I get to teach these amazing young women a subject I’m so passionate about, teach them to appreciate their bodies, and help them build their confidence!
💓
These girls have BIG summer plans too! Internships, summer school, sports camp, workshops, family vacations...always growing those minds!

I’m so excited this summer to have some relax time, vacation, plan new curriculum for our PE program, work on my health science added credential, and have time to work on all these big ideas I have been brainstorming!
