Okay, STOP! ✋🏻⠀
If I were to ask you “What’s your mindset?” 🧠 What would you say? Do you ever stop and think about what your mindset is 🤔 and how it may be affecting what you are doing?⠀
I know, you’re like, “Whaaat???” 🤷🏻♀️⠀
Just try this with me. It will only take a couple of ⌚️minutes. ⠀
Okay, so what’s your mindset?⠀
Another way to think about mindset could be Attitudes with a capital A - so like your overall view of things. ☂️⠀
Do you feel capable and strong? 💪🏻⠀
Do you feel overwhelmed and defeated? 😔⠀
Those two general mindsets will have very different affects on everything you do!⠀
Let’s say you want to tackle cleaning 🧹 🧼 out a room of your house 😝). The first mindset (capable and strong) will help you to push through the task. It will help you to keep going even when you really want to pack it in for the day.⠀
The second mindset (overwhelmed and defeated) will probably prevent you from even beginning 🙅🏻♀️ and then when you don’t do the task you feel even more overwhelmed and more defeated. 😩⠀
I think I first became aware of the difference my mindset made when I started 🏃🏻♀️running. Since then, I have really been fascinated by 📚books, 📱podcasts, etc., that deal with mindset.⠀
Mine is NOT always strong, believe me. There are times of self-doubt and fear.⠀
Here’s the difference today: 🌞⠀
I AM AWARE. I know when my mindset is getting in the way of me doing what I want/need to do or me BEING who I want to be!! And when that negative thinking starts to creep in, I ACT.⠀
How have I gotten this awareness? Honestly, my coaching has been a huge part! THAT ( other coaches, the women I work with) is my circle 🔵 of support. I used to terribly underestimate the importance of this. Today, I KNOW that I don’t have to do ANY of it alone!! Today I don’t want to do ANY of it alone.⠀
So. . .⠀
What’s your mindset? Are you happy with your answer??⠀

‘I never meant to love you. I never meant to make you feel the same as me. And now that I know, knew that I knew better.
But you should know, know that I will be ready. When you call your vultures.’
Had the pleasure of sharing a piece very dear to me at @originurbandancetheatre recently. I was blown away by the amount of people that came to my class!! That is still so very wild to me✨
Choreographing is such a great means of self exploration and expression. And I’m so glad I’m able to share that experience with others. So grateful for this community~
Dance saves lives. 🦄☀️🌈

"I'm better off when I begin to remember
How You have met me in my deepest pain
So give me glimpses now of how You have covered
All of my heart ache, oh with all Your grace
Remind me now that You can make a way
You say that You'll turn my weeping into dancing
Remove my sadness & cover me with joy
You say your scars are the evidence of healing
That You can make the broken beautiful"
The Broken Beautiful
By Ellie Holcomb
I get pretty vulnerable with my fitness group of ladies. And I go LIVE daily. Yesterday, I was a wreck. I couldn't pull myself together for my LIVE, so I just decided to be raw. You see, I am living in and working through some serious ugliness in my life. It is heart wrenching. Yet I still workout daily. I use it as therapy. As I spoke, I cried, I revealed my hurt, my pain, and my anger. And that I hoped, that perhaps, my vulnerability and determination not to hide or quit, might inspire them and give them strength to get through whatever they may have going in their lives---Cuz let's face it--we all have crap.
Well, my brokenness and honesty not only drew amazing encouragement and words of love from my ladies, but it also allowed some of them the freedom (and strength) to speak out about their own issues.
Y'all, it was the most beautiful place to be on Facebook yesterday. I love my tribe so very much. .
Find your tribe, come be a part of mine. We love hard. And yesterday, experienced God making "the broken beautiful."❤️

Choose to LIVE... YOUR CHOICE...

Today’s healthy/tasty lunch in the park! (Followed by not so healthy but equally delicious Indian dinner 😋)
I started the path towards a better me 10 days ago, but this is the first day I’m going public with the results 🤫 My healthy choices for today were: 1. Guided meditation 2. Studying maths (three 🍅) 3. A ballet inspired class followed by stretching and sauna 4. Managing to take all of my meds on time (don’t laugh, it is a challenge) 5. This poke, obviously 6. Walking around with friends 7 listening to an inspiring audiobook Things I need to improve on: 1. Ate fried food at dinner and mindlessly/randomly snacked in anything I could see after waking up (ops) 2. More sleep (5 hours is below ideal for me) 3. Aim for 4 🍅 tomorrow 4. My new stretching regimen might have gone too far (I’m ridiculously inflexible and I might have forced myself in the past days) and if I feel this way tomorrow, I’ll take a day off #bettereveryday#betterme#betterchoices#besserleben#betteryourself#pokebowl#poke#pokeria#park#lunchinthepark#lunchideas#healthyfood#healthylifestyle#radicalhonesty#fitgirls#journeytofit#journeytosplits#journeytowellness

It isn't my actual training focus but officially gonna compete at a powerlifting meet in April! Pumped to be lifting with clients and coworkers. So excited to do something new and compete just for fun!
Meet @krzyanjl a client & longtime friend of mine. I'm so freaking proud of her transformation over the last few weeks. Swipe 👈🏻 to see! In January Kari & her husband Cam committed to feeling better and stopped supporting habits that were not serving them. Through this commitment, they have chosen to eat better, exercise more, drink more water, and allow me to guide and coach them. With a few tweaks in their diet and change in their mindset, the results are showing. I love working with them and love the energy they bring. This handstand picture is amazing... I especially love the slippers! #cheerstoyou#bettereveryday#unstoppable#fierce#handstand#healthylifestyle#onesimplechange#transformation#fitlife#shieldscoaching
