Why You Should Lift Heavy

Why You Should Lift Heavy

To lift or not to lift? That is the question. Well, I say LIFT! Many women are turned off by lifting heavy weights because they think they’re going to “get bulky and manly”...sorry to break it to you ladies, but you won’t! It took me two years of heavy lifting and...

BOOTY IS STRENGTH

BOOTY IS STRENGTH

Alright ladies…let’s talk BOOTY!   There are so many different booty sizes and shapes and one is not better than the other. I will say though…a STRONG BOOTY is the best kind!   What do I mean by a “strong booty”? I mean actually building glute muscles. What happens...

15 CROSSFIT TERMS TO KNOW

When I started CrossFit 4 years ago, the terminology was like a foreign language. Seriously! I constantly had to Google certain abbreviations or acronyms to be on the same page as everyone else. Whether you do CrossFit, have friends that CF, or are thinking about...

  • 4 MORE DAYS until 🌺Kauai with my love!! Sooo ready for our one year wedding anniversary week together!😍
🌴
Today’s agenda...bookmark all the food places I want to try😋😏 #priorities
  • Guess what my first PE sport/skill unit will be this coming school year?!😏
⚽️
Yup!! It’s always a good idea to include something that is current so that student buy in is extra elevated! They have also been wanting a soccer unit too so it will be so FUN!
❤️
Last weekend at the @uswnt final game viewing party with @nikelosangeles , they asked us to sign a special message on soccer balls for the middle school and high school girls that were there. So awesome!
🤩
I have so much words of encouragement and wisdom for our girls...lol I could’ve written on the whole ball and then some😜, but kept it short and sweet. ✨
“You are an awesome human. Do great things!!” 💓
  • THIS!! RIGHT!! HERE!!
😍
I had finished my last set of 2 snatches at 85# and decided let’s try 90# because it’s been a LONG time. (Glad my phone was still recording so I could see this!)
😊
I knew this wouldn’t be a strength issue...it would be all MENTAL and PERSEVERANCE.
👊
It would’ve been SO EASY to stop after the first lift and say...oh  I’m not gonna get it today, I’m tired, not strong enough, or hope nobody saw that, I’m gonna stop.
💪
Sometimes we have to pause. Step away. Eye roll🙄. Breathe🌬. Shake it off. Regain focus💆🏽‍♀️. Tell ourselves we’re capable🙌. BUT STICK WITH IT!
✨
Don’t let your mental game stop you from achieving or trying things! And if you fail...beautiful! You tried! Try again later!

I came across Nicole’s page this week and I love the educational content and insights she puts out about nutrition...especially kids eating!
🍰

Do you ever have those moments where you stop in your tracks? You don’t know how to react when they ask for candy or dessert or a treat? You're trying to raise a kiddo to have a healthy relationship with sugar, but when it comes to practical situations, you think, "What do I do?"⠀
🔹
Or maybe you just react 🙋 Yes, I often find myself reacting and then coming back and saying, "I don't know why I said that. Let's talk about it." We have so many ideas about food and nutrition programmed in us from our families, friends, and the culture we live in, it's easy to just shout out a response.
🔹
I am a huge believer in the division of responsibility from Ellyn Satter as the backbone for feeding our families. And one of her main tips (at least I see it as one of the big ones!) is to serve dessert WITH dinner. That in and of itself eliminates this very power struggle of wanting him to eat more before dessert. He can have dessert whenever he chooses during the meal (when you offer it).⠀
🔹
That doesn't mean you have to serve dessert at every meal, but at the ones you do, serve it WITH the meal.⠀
This is just one of the many scenarios I get asked about by parents. ⠀
🔹
So, I created this free guide, SUGAR SCENARIOS. It provides Practical Responses (what to say AND what to do) to Your Most Common Situations with Your Sweet Tooth Kid!⠀

I have so many variations of this, but here’s my basic one before it gets too fancy haha!
