Chicken & pepper curry by @thebodycoach The sauce is made with blended up sweet potatoes...not my favourite if I'm honest, it was a bit bland! However, I had the best time at bungeefit! It was so good! #joewicks#thefatlossblitz
Es gibt endlich wieder ein Trainingsvideo ☝🏼 Zuerst gibts noch einen kurzen Bericht zum letzten WE da ging es für uns nochmal zum Turnier 😬 Was da mit mir los war kann ich bis jetzt noch nicht erklären ich war völlig planlos und dadurch gab es im ersten Springen dann auch einen Steher, danach war alles aber kein Problem. Im zweiten Springen gab es dann zum ersten Mal einen Wassergraben für uns auf dem Turnier 🙄 Ich war mit dem Kopf dann schon wieder völlig woanders und hab mir so Druck wegen diesem einen blöden Sprung gemacht, dass ich den Rest des Parcours iwie total kopflos geritten bin und dann zwei Stangen fielen 🤷🏽♀️ Den Wassergraben haben wir aber ohne Probleme überwunden 🤦🏽♀️ Heute ging es dann endlich mal wieder zum Training und ich war einfach super happy 👏🏼 Mir wurde heut einfach nochmal bewusst wie sehr sich mein Pferd verändert hat durch all das Training, das kämpfen und vorallem dadurch das ich ihm endlich vertraue 🙏🏻 Danke an euch 3 fürs helfen heute : @lotti.lxm , @kathi.0508 & @antonia__photographie ♥️ Bald gibt es dann auch ein paar neue Fotos ☝🏼 #equestrianblog#equestrianblogger#horsesofinstagram#horseblogger#showjumping#rsvessen#happy#love#training#trainhard#teamwork#friends#equestrian#horse#equestrianlife
I wanted to talk about being annoyed or disappointed at yourself for not getting in a workout or eating something that you didn’t plan to....it’s totally normal😅for example, today I just COULD NOT get up for my workout this morning at 6am and I had a lie in...and to be honest I’ve been beating myself up all day for it🙃but I made it to a step & abs class tonight, got such a good sweat on and now I don’t know why I was so hard on myself! At the end of the day, I felt exhausted and listened to my body for once😇
So make sure you listen to your body, take that extra rest day, eat that donut if it’ll make you happy and ENJOY the journey✨
P.S. why do I always forget about the OG flex🙃
ROAD TO RECOVERY: About a month ago I bought a pair of Vapormax Nike running shoes from Foot Locker that I found out last week were giving me problems that whole time; going for runs was becoming a chore because not only did I experience some pain in my shin, ankle, and calf region but it was also very awkward. When I was exerting myself, especially downhill, it was more like I was hopping than actually running because I was working with 2 beat up legs that needed some time to heal. Exactly one week ago I went for a run, which may have been top 3 worst ones of all time. This was enough for me to tell myself that I needed to take some time off. Running the necessary miles at the appropriate paces and doing cross training along with that on a consistent basis takes a lot of self control, but so does being inactive when you’re so accustomed to a very active lifestyle. Some days during that trying week I felt like hitting the pavement or the gym but I knew that would only hurt me, so listening to my body during that time was critical. Today’s run wasn’t completely pain free but it felt better than any other run I’ve been on this past month. Feels good to be back and I plan on building some momentum off of this. Next race is just 2 weeks away; the goal may be ambitious given what I’ve been through but I’m going to stick to the plan as best as I can and show up on race day with a strong mental attitude. There may be uncertainty regarding race goals due to a lack of training, overtraining, or improper training. However, don’t sell yourself short. You may surprise yourself again like you have in the past, so make the most with what you’ve got. Train hard, train smart, and keep that 🔥 alive.
NEW YOUTUBE VIDEO UPLOADED: Never Give Up On You
Trying to do something different to expand my posts and content - vary it up!! Let me know what you think 😊
A video on my story - even before the gym, social media, etc came into play. Vanity video?! Maybe! But absolutely encourage everyone to be proud of their journey, proud of their progress and proud of their goals
I don’t usually feel like this often, but today I felt so insecure. I called myself fat, inadequate, ugly. Looked in the mirror and I saw nothing beautiful. Sometimes it’s hard to accept myself, sometimes I fall back into old patterns of low self-esteem. But once again, as soon as I go to the gym and lift some weights I feel like myself again - it just instantly changes my mindset. One set of deadlifts is enough to bring acceptance, forgiveness and self love. Anyway, just wanted share this because I know many people feel like this inside but hide it. It’s ok to feel low - just acknowledge it and do something that will change your mindset. And here’s a nice poem I found: ⠀🌸
.⠀ I weigh the sea
I weigh the storm
I weigh a thousand stories long.
I weigh my mother's fortitude and my father's eyes
I weigh the way they look at me with pride
I weigh strength and fearless and the warrior in me.
I weigh all the pain and trauma that made me see
that I have more galaxies inside me than tragedies.
We all weigh joys and darkness and goodness and sin
you see, we are infinite within this skin we are in.
So when they ask you what you weigh
you don't need to look down at any scale.
Instead, simply tell them the truth,
tell them how you
weigh whole universes
and storms and scars and stories too.
⠀🌸 🌸 🌸 🌸
