My smug face after running 11 incredibly hot and sweaty miles. Last couple of miles were really tough but dug deep and made it to the end. Feeling half marathon ready 🙌🏻🏃🏽‍♀️💃🏻🥵

Night shift. At least you get to start the shift with an epic display of colours. Groote Eylandt turning it on.

Some people say I don’t have time to workout....well I can’t afford not to. Running helps me manage stress and anxiety. When I feel it building I know it’s time to turn it up. If I can do it so can you! #stressmanagement #fnpstudent #loveoutdoors #fitandfortysomething #goingforgoals

This is how I felt this morning at 7am 😫

I didn’t want to go 
I was super tired 
I was super sore from yesterday’s workout 
My neck and back hurt 
Feeling super bloated 
So many good excuses to stay home in bed and sleep some more! 
HOWEVER 😏
I knew I would feel better after 
I wanted to try my new shoes
I needed another workout so I can get my 4 in this week 
My girls wanted to go to hang out with their friends in the day care 
Some of these were more motivating then the others but they all helped me get to @grecocp this morning and get it done 💪

Now I... Feel great 
Feel accomplished 
Fell like I can rock my day
Will make better food choices because I don’t want to derail what I just endured 
What will motivate you to get your workout in today and stay on track?

The plan was to have a sleep in today 😴 but my body clock knew better ⏰ So I got up, laced up & completed my 90th Parkrun 🏃‍♀️ but because the weather was so gorgeous today I decided to keep running an extra 5kms around the Regatta ☀️#winterruns #fitandfortysomething #parkrun

Most Americans consume over 19 teaspoons of sugar each day. 🥄

It is recommended that adults limit consumption to a maximum of 6 teaspoons per day. 🥄

I cater a lot of lunches for work and I love when fruit salad is an option. ...Especially one that has YELLOW watermelon! Yummmm🍉

I’m trying to consume more natural sugar in my diet and fresh fruit is a great alternative for dessert.

If you’re trying to lose weight or get healthy, figure out what you’re eating or drinking that contains added sugars! It’s not just the sweets and candy! 
Soda
Sauces
Condiments 
Alcoholic drinks
Flavored waters

Happy Friday!!! Swipe for a couple of shoulder day clips.  I wanted 5 hang clean reps @ 135 lbs but only got 2.  A reminder that it's ok to fail, but it's not ok to quit!  Failure leads to growth, but when you quit you never realize your potential. 
Be a failure, don't be a quitter 😉💪🏽💪🏽 #justbcozfitness #personaltrainer #inhomepersonaltraining #fitnesshabits #shoulderday #hangcleans #fitandfortysomething #dadbod

There will be days when you don’t feel like working out. Nobody is motivated 24/7, it’s okay to feel that way. But that is the best moment to get up and make things happen!

I never thought I’d love working out.❤️ I thought it would just make my fibro pain worse. I thought it would be too hard on my body.
 I thought I was doomed to be trapped in a body of pain and stiffness, older than my years and always the one saying ‘no’ to any kind of activity. 
I was wrong. I was SO wrong. 
And for once, I was glad to be wrong. 
I cannot even express in words how ecstatic I am to be able to MOVE this body. 
To not get up from sitting down and immediately worry if my legs were going to give out. No longer am I limping for the first few steps while waiting for my hips to warm up. 
No more pain, wondering where it’s source is... With proper dense nutrition, exercise, strength training, stress management and personal development my life has been FOREVER changed. It makes me want to cry tears of joy, you have no idea. 
Or maybe you do. 
Maybe you know what it’s like to live with pain, daily and to constantly have to mask it, in order to keep everyone around you comfortable. 
I understand. ❤️You don’t have to hide your pain around me. 
If you want to talk about it or find out what works for me, let me know. 
I believe in your STRENGTH. 
You have it in abundance. 
We are VIRAGO. 💪🏻❤️💥 #viragoinspired #strongwomen #fibrofighter #chronicillnesswarrior #lupusawareness #fibromyalgia #fitandfortysomething #yogamornings #mm100 #icommitto100 #ttmadeformoremovement #yogababe

Yesterday’s long run simply HAD to be postponed, because... ORCAS visited Wellington! I made up for it today, but didn’t take any photos - as the strong northerly wind was a major mission to contend with (plus I was holding onto my cap for most of the run!).

🚨PR ALERT...500lb SQUAT🚨
October 31, 2018 I failed with 495lbs
November 10, 2018 I failed with 496lbs
June 22, 2019 I failed with 490lbs...but today!!! Finally hit a 500lb squat after failing 3 times at attempts close to it. Also at a lighter body weight than the previous times attempted (197lbs)...and I’m 42 yrs young😂
This is just hard work and good training at the moment, but I’m not satisfied! This just proof that things are moving in the right direction as I prep for the December meet in Louisville, and the January in Florence, KY! 
Wasn’t planning on taking 2 stabs at it, but I needed to make sure for myself, that we are hitting depth, and not leaving the decision up to the judges! In the split screen pic, 360lbs on the left, and 500lbs on the right, on without a spotter and one with! Looks the same to me...y’all decide!

Summer is over and I got my lifting partner back today! I’ve been doing alright on my own, but let’s just say, when I questioned my ability to do an exercise at my heaviest weight, her response of, “Come on, Last set, Best set!” sealed the deal. Thank you @kimfit_arnp for keeping me accountable to the end today!

BREATHE!!! When you are lifting, it is critial that you breathe throughout your rep.  No breath, no oxygen.  No oxygen, no energy.  No energy, no gains!

INHALE to prepare for you lift.  A deep breath into you lungs, not just into you mouth.

EXHALE as your muscles contract to move the weight.  I like to imagine a balloon between me and the weight.  As I exhale the balloon is filling up causing the weight to move 
Now go breathe and be strong 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽 #justbcozfitness #personaltrainer #inhomepersonaltraining #fitnesshabits #fitandfortysomething

Okay, first, seriously- that sky!!! Plank skull crushers. I do these at the gym on the Smith machine bar. A bench top works as well. The lower I go, the more I cry. A more narrow grip focuses on the medial and long heads, but rotate inward and keep elbows pointing down. Wider grips should not go past shoulder width. This is core work, so focus on spinal alignment and stabilize abdominals to support low back. ##fitandfortysomething #absandass

I love #Beachbody workouts at home! The Lift4 program is awesome for weight training.  As we get older, it’s so important to incorporate weights and HITT exercises.  40min a day and done✅ #maurbalanced #goingdownswinging #fitandfortysomething #weighttraining #lift4 #homeworkouts #noexcuses

It won't always be fun, but it's always worth it.  If you only workout when you feel like it, you won't develop a habit.  Fight that temptation to take unplanned days off.

BREATHE!!! When you are lifting, it is critial that you breathe throughout your rep.  No breath, no oxygen.  No oxygen, no energy.  No energy, no gains!

INHALE to prepare for you lift.  A deep breath into you lungs, not just into you mouth.

EXHALE as your muscles contract to move the weight.  I like to imagine a balloon between me and the weight.  As I exhale the balloon is filling up causing the weight to move 
Now go breathe and be strong 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽 #justbcozfitness #personaltrainer #inhomepersonaltraining #fitnesshabits #fitandfortysomething

Have you seen this new collagen powder by Beachbody? Why collagen?? Collagen is the main structural protein in the body. It makes up 25 to 35 percent of our total protein content in the form of connective tissue like tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bones, and about 75 percent of your skin.  Collagen works side by side with another protein called elastin: Collagen fills out your skin, while elastin helps your skin “snap back” when stretched.
Starting at about 20 years old, your body’s ability to produce collagen and elastin dwindles, which is why we get saggy and wrinkly as we get older. #life

Beachbody Collagen Boost is formulated with specific bioactive collagen peptides clinically shown to stimulate the creation of collagen and elastin — with just one small scoop.

Did not record today’s workout except for these Spiderman crawls. Proud to say I made Lorena throw up and Sylvia had to stop because she almost did. They got two rounds, but I was feeling a bit badass and got three. #absandass #fitandfortysomething

Kicked off the start of my new 100 day workout with a 3 day refresh, so my timeline is 7/26 to today, 8/18/19 (23 days total!). I completed the first 20 workouts which is phase 1. I am feeling really good!

If you thinking I can't do it now, I'm too busy, the kids have so much going on, we'll be on vacation... Please reconsider!! Why?! Besides working full time (2 contract PT agencies, my regular PT job at 2 hospitals and an outpatient clinic PLUS health and fitness coaching...)
I was on vacation 14 of past 23 days!! You can do this!

I will keep you accountable! My team will cheer you on! 
Refresh Kits go on sale tomorrow and challenge packs have even bigger savings if you want to do this amazing 20-30 min workout I'm doing now- 
Drop me an Emoji or shoot me a message for info!
