Never miss a Monday!!! This morning I knew my to-do list was going to be long and James is now home with me on Mondays instead of school so I was up and at em before the Sun and pressed play!
I decided to share this picture with you guys because I love the progression of my weights and each week I seem to be using even more of them and pushing myself to the next level! I always start with the heaviest I can handle and if I have to go down in weight on the next set I do but at least I know I'm giving it my all and pushing to be better than I was last week!! .
I might have dropped my 25 pound dumbbells on myself during the last set of chest press and woke up the family with my cursing but that's beside the point! 😂 .
Here's your Monday reminder to quiet that inner perfectionist voice and get. shit. done ✌🏼️. It's so easy to wait and wait (and...yes, wait) because, of course, you don't feel ready yet or could spend 4 more weeks looking over that same task or spend another 2 days googling all about it, over and over again.
Do you want to hear a little secret? You'll never feel 100% ready without any doubts or fear. So why not do it now, get it done, and free up some of that precious mind space to move forward!?
What would you like to get done this week that you have procrastinated since ages?
I'm currently working on a free guide but haven't been able to focus because that inner perfectionist has been telling me that it'll never be perfect enough to be published. Anybody in the same boat and wants to form a little accountability team/group 🙆🏻? #happymondayyall#mondayreminder#progressoverperfection#quotestoliveby#yogaoffthemat
Went for a little run before work. Months ago I started training for a Half Marathon but I was over pushing and burnt myself out. Now I am enjoying starting slow and building nothing happens over night! Sometimes working in retail the times you do your work out change day to day. Make time make a calendar to keep you on track and keep progressing!! #balancedlife#progressoverperfection#retaillife#halfmarathontraining

Whether you’re beginning a new school year or trying to begin your week more positively than last week ended, I think beginning is the best first step.
A sweet and simple pattern from the cutting room floor based off the client's monogram. Whenever I get the chance to play with patterns, I try to visualize how they could be used. For instance, this one I pictured filling up the back of a business or thank you card. Just an extra splash of detail and color to tie the whole brand together. Fun right?
Happy Monday friends! Hope you have a great start to your week! 🌷
My 18 month old may be eating sprinkles for breakfast (she brought them to me from the cupboard), but I started the day with an awesome workout with my husband to fill my cup! 💪🏻🤓 I also got in some reading this morning and this stuck with me, “In these sometimes dark and complicated times, we don’t need a lone light flashing in the light, we need to shine brighter together.” -Shawn Achor, Big Potential 💥
I loved the concept that Shawn brought up about his initial shortsightedness in regards to his hopes for his son. He initially dreamed of his kid being the smartest, he “wanted him to shine so brightly that people would have to put on sunglasses.” 😎 Now, he not only wants him to be happy, smart, creative, but also help everyone around him to be those things too. “And the key to achieving your highest potential starts by helping others achieve theirs.” I want this for my children and everyone around me as well.
If I’m being honest, this has been hard for me to grasp, especially on the days when the sink is full of dishes, my kids don’t seem to listen, and we get takeout for dinner. 🤷🏻♀️ How can I inspire others when I’m “failing” myself. Then I get a message from a challenger about how they got home from working a 10 hr job on their feet only to be excited to press play and strengthen their body. These types of conversations light me up and I can see how helping others truly does help us create a potential that’s unimaginable.
Shine your light among others today, you’re doing amazing things and inspiring others around you! 💫
