A Million Things

Lately it seems that I have a million little things running around in my head. I want to write here, but words really do escape me. I never feel like I can write my feelings the way Betty can. She is funny and man she hits it on point every time. We have been sharing Instgram photos and messages daily. They are our way of getting our message across, but they are also our own personal motivation. Look for our hashtag #phatchances for even more. 

I decided to share my favorite motivations from IG:

In a nutshell here is what we are talking about through pictures. 

Endurance: the ability to exert oneself and remain active for a long period of time, as well as its ability to resist, withstand, recover from, and have immunity to trauma, wounds, and fatigue.  Right now I am more engaged and committed to my INSANITY MAX:30 than any workout I have been committed to in a very long time. This program is not only transforming my body, but I can feel it transforming my mind.

"Don't let preparation delay progress" - Jeff Hill
Planning and prep is critical to a good future or to changing your current state, but the only thing that will actually create change is ACTION. 

Our minds can change on a dime. They can change for better or for worse. We take in so much information through out the day. It can be so easy to look at something or someone and decide right there that what we are doing is not good enough or strong enough. Truth is you are your worst enemy and you need to train your mind as hard as you train your body. 

And with that if you want to #beALion you must train with Lions. If you want to be better at ANYTHING you need to do MORE of that. 

And my favorite message from Betty 
"You can put the drugs and the alcohol away, but people still gotta eat. #food #addictions require a significant amount of present #mindfulness every second of the day. It's exhausting, feels daunting and I'm tired. But I am reminded of my worth, how good it feels to weigh less and workout hard and how blessed I am to live this fortunate life. #Shitcouldbeworse."

Everyday is a chance to get it right. 

Ever tried.
Ever failed.
Try again.
Fail again.
Fail better.
