finals week has made eating difficult. i didn't have time to prep before it started and with all the studying i have to do, i simply don't have time to cook. but i'm trying my best to make good choices as i glean meals from the pizza place downstairs or grab a sandwich from the market. i'm staying on the workouts though! i can't afford to let both slide
#coffee with my lovely photographer Maria after taking #photoshoot of my latest #project. I #love working with people who are ambitious and #workhard. The universe will always help you when you show #committment
Have you ever wondered whether feminism was wrong, if people outgrow sex, if abstinence is unrealistic or what to do when a partner cheats? This book contains thirty relationship questions from both single and married people about some of life's knotty issues. These are not sugarcoated, dressed up, polite, academic discourses but real situations that people face on a daily basis. (Culled from Okada books) This book is surely a good read. #books#questions#answers#love#intimacy#affection#him#her#couple#intimacy#committment#pbc#pleasureboxconcepts
Yup! Got it in. I've gotten in a workout 16 days straight. I've been on the bike 30 rides in 40 days. One goal is to hit 50 rides by Dec 31st. This is my last crazy week with grad school finals but working out now is so beneficial right now. Cheers you guys!
|If you fail to prepare, you’re prepared to fail.| ___________________________ Way before the highly decorated Olympic swimming phenom, Mark Spitz, laid down this knowledge, Benjamin Franklin had a very similar quote, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” Regardless of who said it first, this thought is critical for everyone and should be re-read numerous times. ___________________________ The simple idea from this brief sentence is that you should always be prepared for anything and everything in life. Unfortunately, this is sometimes not the case where some people talk about how they are waiting for their big break or that if they were just given the opportunity, they would take it and run with it. When they are talking more about what they would do given the opportunity – than working to create one. ___________________________ I have raise my hand on this because I was one of those people who would talk more than lead with action. I would play off on the idea of “fake it ‘til you make it” also known as winging it, which can only get you so far. What pushes you further though is taking the time to research the hell out of whatever you are looking to do, practice and prepare like a madman or madwoman, and put forth your best effort in your preparation. ___________________________ Remember if you want to create possibilities, prime yourself for success, and capitalize on opportunity. You must simply begin to prepare as such. ___________________________ Quote By: Mark Spitz • • • • • #model#workoutlife#fitlife#fitnesslife#mensphysique#fitnessmodel#wellness#malemodel#body#physique#strength#male#bodyweightworkout#muscles#core#arms#workoutlife#fitnessmodel#fitnessbody#chest#abs#fit#outdoorworkout#fitnessgoals#muscles#committment#mensfitness#trainhard#menshealth
Remember, it’s easier to disengage when you haven’t invested much. Having sex too soon and being “in love with love” are famous for blinding us to the reality right in front of us. If he doesn’t want to stay around long enough for you to really get to know him, then you dodged a bullet because he’s not as into you as he needs to be.
“I am my own muse. I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to know better.”- Frida Kahlo .... Knowing my own intrinsic nature, sparking new creative expressive arts, witnessing my personality complications that create stories of confusion for my own growth and clarity⚖️ Its clear, I’m being asked to commit to a life story re-write which has more fire, glory, guts, and heart 💜. .... She asks me now “how dare you forget parts of me and push them aside-the fighter you were, a hurricane in motion committed to the movement ...where did you hide her...it’s time for her to rise..! “ ..... Feeling so grateful for the inner workings of my muse, living inside, whispering in my ear as she keeps throwing me daggers and flowers, all at the same time! 🌸 ⚔️🏹🔥🐉👑💙🌺💁🏽♀️ #artist#rebirth#phoenix#joyfuldiscipline#fiercefeminine#egodeath#lifestory#fighter#thriving#badasswomen#womanonfire#committment#rise#radiance#getup#fridakahlo#kali#destroyer
I grocery shopped today. I have been getting stuff delivered the last few months due to life's demand but I worked from home enabled me to run and grab stuff on while on lunch which I just say...I kinda miss shopping. I digress...while picking up my usuals I remembered all the other goodies I don't normally remember because I stick to a regimen. So I picked up some things I don't normally to change it up. Chicken salad from the deli, naan bread and a spring greens for lunch today. I took the bread and warmed it in the oven. Use it at my toast for my chicken salad along with some avocado. Soooo good. Cheers, a.
This past week while on vacation I had a eye opening realization. I was trying to work on vacation while also being present with my family. I was sleeping in because I could, but then having my husband watch the kids while I worked and worked out during the day - in turn taking time away from them. . I got behind in my work and ended up feeling stressed and overwhelmed instead of being able to relax. I realized there needs to be a better way. . So this morning I committed to waking up an hour earlier than I normally would to get both work done and my workout in before anyone else woke up. Was I tired? Sure. Could I have slept in? Yepp, but I decided I’d rather get up and chase my dreams than lay there in bed dreaming. It’s all about deciding what you want MOST!💪🏻
#mcm to the best doggy parent partner I could ask for. Oh yeah and like romantic partner and stuff. And bestie. We’ve both been stressed and as a result we may get annoyed with each other and bicker about dumb stuff but we can’t go an hour being pissy with each other; we always end up giving into the giggles and love and remind each other how much we love each other and we’re sorry we’re both buttholes sometimes. I have endless faith in our relationship and our love. I’ve said before that it’s not, ‘All You Need Is Love.’ And that’s something you learn as you get older. You can love someone but if you don’t know how to communicate with each other, apologize to each other, forgive each other, forgive YOURSELF, and just generally put your egos aside and respect each other, it won’t work and it won’t be enough. So I feel so grateful to have both a fiery, warm love with someone who I also have the absolute most fun with, but we also never stop working hard to be our best selves for the other and listen and support each other. It’s not always easy to do, but we believe in us and our wonderful life together. We ask how we can be better for each other, clearly communicate what we need, and we actually take action to cater to those needs. Sometimes I just feel so overwhelmed with love, pride and gratitude for this man, so I want to post to show him how proud of him I am. And even in tougher times, it’s to remind him and myself that I’m still proud to be his partner. 💙 #love#relationships#dog#family#committment

This is me like all the time (actually most weekends)! I love a splurge at @lornajaneactive (who can past the nothing 2 C here fabric!) or @runningbare they just make you feel amazing.

The best fitting and MOST comfiest gym pants ever. I live in mine daily, they are like a warm hug on your body (who ever says that about gym pants right?!?!). No lie, trust me ♥️ They also have the most comfiest casual wear line with pieces made from modal fabrics. MAKE SURE YOU VISIT THE STORE I can't wait to shop up a storm when I go to Hawaii in April.
Monday motivation! See what’s possible. When I met Capone, Oliver and Emmitt there were a few things to think about. First was Oliver - who Mom said would bite me. He never has and not only are we buddies - he loves everyone he comes across. The real call was for Capone. Capone had a host of things Mom had been working on for months with little success. When I stepped in we saw immediate progress but I’ll tell you candidly, Capone was on the overall very shut down, despite Mom doing tons of positive reinforcement training with him. Fast forward 4-5 months and when I walked into the house last week a happy go lucky Capone came over and jumped up to greet me, which I happily allowed for a minute and discouraged very gently. It’s been a month since I saw these guys and I just said “That was interesting”. Mom reported Capone is an entirely different dog emotionally!!! Yeah Capone! We can show him not to jump very easily but it’s more important he be happy when he sees guests! This took 8-9 sessions and a lot of work/commitment (time and financial) for Mom and Dad, but this is what’s possible if you believe in your trainer and stay the course! We changed the entire dynamic of the house for the better. Eliminated door rushing, stealing food, arguments between the dogs, aggression, leash pulling and added a solid recall to Capone’s skills.

Isn’t this the truth! I love to get excited thinking about what I’m going to accomplish or watching someone I coach start to really dream big! @pptc.com That’s Fun and Free 🙌 What’s not free is the effort required to bring those dreams to reality and packed inside the effort are challenges, disappointments and exhaustion! It’s called the entrepreneurs life 24/7 This is why it’s critical to become absolutely clear about what you want and the price you’re willing to pay to achieve your goals! Knowing crystal clear why it’s a MUST that you accomplish your objective is the most important step towards your fulfillment of your dreams. Clarity and Focus and yes, Hustle are a absolute Must! #clarity#focus#hustle#paytheprice#effort#mentaltoughness#entrepreneur#mastermind#10x#grind#businessstrategy#goals#committment#required#halfwayisnotenough
Day 7-8-9 of #25daysofchristmas 🌲 so we were so busy having fun this weekend and spending time together that I didn’t have much time to post. Day 7 we watched a movie in bed with a some delicious cheese, and a little Sauvignon Blanc 😋, Day 8 we shopped literally until we dropped and got all of our shopping done together. A small disagreement on how much to spend that was quickly resolved with a little compromising from both! Day 9 we started with brunch and Bloody Mary’s before heading home from Philadelphia and ended the day starting our Christmas 🧩 puzzle. What an amazing weekend! 💕Hope you all are also taking time to enjoy your spouse during this busy season...
