I'm so in love with everyone's post 🖤🖤 Tomorrow is Day 8 of #14DaysOfSilhouettes and we give you #shoulderstand 🖤 -
You can try any variation you'd like, here are the instructions os the original asana:
Curl your torso and bring your knees in toward your face. Then, lift your hips and bring your torso perpendicular to the floor. Bend your elbows and place your hands on your lower back with your fingertips pointing up toward the ceiling. Keep your elbows on the ground, shoulder-width apart. -
It's time to reveal the Yoga Body 🖤
Moments like these will remind you why you started. Everyday is a stepping stone, and you just gotta keep trucking forward. Slow and steady wins the race! My advice to anyone hitting a plateau in any physical activity; revert back to why you started, and or how you started. And, if that doesn't work; drink a cold one!(age permitted) But, seriously we should enjoy the process more. This is a rigorous training regimen, however, if you asked Brent if he would be doing 20lbs weighted vest push ups 2 years ago I bet he'd scratch his head. Everyone learns and improves at their own pace, therefore; comparing yourself to others can prevent prosperity. Patience is key; relying on untamed motivation or peer pressure will only bring you 2 steps forward and 1 step back. Whereas, continually improving without roller coasting your results can assure regular improvement. Stay motivated, work harder than your last session; and believe it! Lastly, love yourself. ❤️#motivation#monday#weightedvest#pushups#fit#fitness#fitfam#workout#ageisjustanumber#TrainLikeAnAthlete#IslandAthletics
I find it funny the corner that saved me at Downer Ave had a "hospital this way" sign over top of it.
Thanks, everyone, for the messages of encouragement this week. @tourofamericasdairyland is one of the best things I have ever done. I wish I could do a criterium every day of the week all the time. Or any race really.

Can we talk about the imposter syndrome?
This painful feeling that we aren't good enough, smart enough, and don't have enough education, experience, money, intelligence, etc.
Frankly, it's total bullshit that we all go through.
Every single person who has achieved any level of success deals with this. Remember, you are worth of an amazing life.
You are enough. (Even if you don't feel like it.)
It is hard. it's hard changing your life. It's hard picking up the pieces and starting all over again. It's hard getting your mind together after you have gone through a life shaking experience (being a primary caregiver for someone; hearing a diagnosis you didn't want; starting over again from a loss of any kind; being alone in a new place; wanting a friend.) But you can do hard. You can weather the storm. You will come through this.
Affirm to yourself every day ~ several times a day. No matter how hard it gets...I am going to make it!! Stand up and look yourself in the eyes..and say "I can do hard!!" Exercise, pray, seek solitude, allow for periods of sadness...but know that you will get through this. Keep the faith; continue to work; and expect to make it through. You may not be able to change your circumstances or situation...but you can change yourself! Hold on..You can do hard! - Les Brown
When people find their way to me, they often are contemplating a leap of some kind. They’re starting businesses and blogs and nonprofits. They’re applying for promotions, or embarking upon health makeovers, or considering adoption. They’re ending relationships or beginning them, moving up or moving out. They’re getting out of debt or into a relationship with God. They’re starting something….because they feel a tug toward something that will light them up. They are genuinely excited by the possibility of what comes next.⠀
But sometimes, the enormity of the decision before them masquerades as a boulder blocking their path. You see, when we’re stuck, we’re afraid to let go. Terrified of what will happen if we make the leap, we start to feel trapped in our current circumstances. But once we step out in faith, even just pointing a toe in our desired direction, we transform our fear into action, and realize we’ve always been free.⠀
I love that moment most of all – when someone I’m coaching realizes she is free. Free to choose. Free to maneuver. Free to leap.⠀
So how about you? Are you ready to decide? Are you ready for a totally different life?

If you have to lose your self in trying to hold on to others, there's already something not right about the picture. We spend our entire lives trying to figure out ourselves, "who we really are." This journey is arduous and comes with making lots of mistakes, only to learn and grow from each of them. If on this journey, we come across those who we think are adding to our growth, but in reality, are leading us away from our life's goals, we must have enough self worth and not be afraid to release these people or situations. It doesn't mean that those people are "bad." There's no judgement to be passed. It just simply means that they are not going to be part of your journey to self discovery at this given time. Focus on finding your self, and through that, you will all those who will enrich each step of your path.
