Flex Fridayyyy 💪🏻. I came across the bottom picture (from March 2017) earlier today and decided to compare it to a photo from this week. I was pleasantly surprised by the difference! My arms have never been very strong/muscular but I’m working on that. Slow progress is better than no progress 😬. It’s also worth mentioning that the bottom picture was taken about a month before I fell in love with Tone It Up 💕😉
Woot Woot! So grateful for this 100th post, 2,000 friends/followers, & a 97/100 on my Nutritionist exam 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
TBH, there were times I wanted to give up my CPT license or close this IG account all together. I didn’t feel I had enough time to do quality work much less make any sort of impact on anyone's fitness goals. But your girl ain’t no quitter 🙅🏻♀️ Someone would comment or DM me on how much I either inspire or inform them, & it always brought me back to my "why" ❤️
Thank you all for allowing me to share everything from fun workouts to my Fit Foddie reviews with these past 5 months! 💕Going to celebrate my new certification tonight... sushi and sake sound REALLY good right about now 😋🍣🍶Happy #FlexFriday, #FitFam!! 💪🏽

So this is my second workout of the week! Been MIA cuz I was sick for TWO weeks and barely ate anything😭😭😭 so I’m getting back in slowly. I’ve been walking a lot lately during the day, yesterday 14k steps (thanks @fitbit ) and my legs today were sooo sore. Idk if it was from my leg workout Wednesday or that.... but today I focused upper body/mostly shoulders (cuz I love some boulders😍) I kept it prettyyyyy light weight and moderate reps. /////———————/////
0️⃣ warm up rolling out shoulders/chest/upper back with ball -
1️⃣ 3x12 Arnold press
2️⃣ 3x12 reg overhead Db Press
3️⃣ Superset: 3x12 bench press & skullcrusher with straight bar
4️⃣ 3x12 underhand front raise with bar
5️⃣ 3x12 begins the head press with bar
6️⃣ *Superset: 3x12 lateral raise & front to lateral raise (not totally sure the tech name for this but will post video!) —I used 10 lbs for lat raise and dropped to 5lbs for front to lateral. —
* last set, do 24 reps of front to lateral. Up and down equals 1 rep. I’ll show you what I mean in video!
All too often, we focus on perfection and ‘not messing up’ our diets or workout plans. We forget to celebrate the small victories, meeting the small goals we have set, the progress that has been made. We get in that ‘all-or-nothing’ mindset so often and beat ourselves up when we don’t meet the expectations we set for ourselves.
I heard a quote today that said “progress comes from a bunch of failures”. It got me thinking and I realized how true of a statement that is. It’s easy to work so hard towards making progress, but then if you fail one meal, one day or even a week, you immediately view yourself as a failure because you weren’t ‘perfect’ with your diet. That does not make you a failure!
We all mess up, we all fail at our goals from time-to-time, no one is perfect EVER. Everyone has bad days…bad moments…weaknesses of giving into that giant bowl of chocolate and eating it until you are sick to your stomach and living in regret. It happens!
But guess what? Life goes on. You start again the next day, remembering how you failed your plan the day before and get back to working towards your goals and making progress. Failures turn into progress, and progress turns into change over time.👊🏻
Call me Rae Sremmurd because I’m posting in the 🚧No Flex Zone 🚧
Week 5 of my first true redo of p90x3. I had still incorporated some of the vids before but neglected some of the essentials like Yoga, Isometrics, etc. if you do those, you’re strength and cardio days actually improve. I know shocking. Oh and I guess it’s flex Friday...or something...#flexfriday #p90x3#incinerator
