The Gym

The Gym

I remember a time when going to the gym was the last thing I ever wanted to do. When cancelling a training session was always an option when my day was going bad or I wasn’t feeling well.

Oh how things have changed…

Now, the worse the day, the worse I feel, the more I want to be in the gym. The more I want to put my headphones on, stare myself in the face, and prove to myself how strong I really am.

Today I feel like a zombie.
Pouring myself into my clients for over 16 hours this weekend drained me (and lit me up, but energy hangover like whoa).

Glamorous

Glamorous

Originally Published May 28, 2018

“I know, I know… My life is so glamorous”…

I’ve caught myself saying this a few times lately, sort of poking fun at myself as I’m conducting my daily life… you know meal prepping or spending my holiday weekend working and organizing my house. Like this morning…it’s Memorial day and someone texted me asking, “What are you doing?” And I thought to myself as I was walking through the grocery store… “Man, my life is so glamorous” and I laughed out loud.

People Will Always Show You Who They Are

People Will Always Show You Who They Are

People will always show you who they are.

How often do you actually listen?

Even if you can see their potential, until they see it they are exactly who they keep showing you they are right now.

I used to be very bad at this. I fell in love with potential and it left me brokenhearted with disappointment over and over.

Life Happens

Life Happens

I missed the first alarm, woke up around 6 and said “nope” and went back to sleep. When I finally did rise, I walked into a messy kitchen, dishes in the sink, tools from fixing the light yesterday on the table, planner spread open with this week’s menu for my meal prepping on the counter lining out the food I was supposed to cook last night but didn’t.

I moved on to the bathroom where Bonnie had apparently tried to ball up the rug during the storm last night and left brown fuzz and pieces of carpet all over the floor, then notice there’s a hair extension that fell out yesterday (I’m way overdue for a new set) lying on the floor next to the trash can because I apparently missed in my attempt to throw it away during my rushing out the door to an appointment yesterday.

Value Your Time

Value Your Time

“A lack of planning on your part doesn’t constitute an emergency on mine.”

^This was one of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned over the years.

In my world, everything is intentional. I’m extremely “buttoned up” by nature. That doesn’t mean things are perfect, because they’re not. But it does mean that whatever is on my plate is always being handled and it’s always clear.

That’s always been a natural thing for me. But I used to let other people cause me to panic. Or question that. A lot.

Scarcity

Scarcity

You’re working on yourself…maybe you’re building a brand or even a business…You want your purpose to reach everyone it can. You want to make an impact, right?

Real talk, in the online space we all know that likes, comments, and shares are a big part of what we do. Continue reading “Scarcity”

What’s The Deal With That Chick You Train?

What’s The Deal With That Chick You Train?

Apparently there’s this strange situation in my gym where I’ve become the “mystery girl” and people keep cornering my trainer when I’m not there and questioning him about me. Seriously, I can’t make this shit up.

Now if you met Brent (my personal trainer) you’d understand that he’s super straight forward, means business, determined, and focused dude. Doesn’t talk shit. Always takes action. No nonsense kind of guy. So when various guys in the gym started coming up to him while he was working out alone and asking about me, his responses were hilarious.
