THREE reasons to CELEBRATE today:
1. It's SUNNY!! ☀️
2. I tried Roasted Beet hummus & it's surprisingly AMAZE-BALLS!! (At Costco, y'all!) 🤷🏼♀️
3. I can LUNGE! On my LEFT LEG!! 🎉🎉🎉
This last one is HUGE!!
My face: FREAKING OUT because the last time I could lunge on my left leg was almost 8 years ago!! 🤗
EIGHT YEARS AGO!! 👈🏼
I injured my knee pretty horribly in the second-to-last game of my LAST season playing college soccer. The strain had made m
It's NEVER about the numbers.
I don't NEED more people in my online fitness accountability groups. 🤷🏼♀️ NOPE.
BUT I am SO DANG PASSIONATE about helping more people get healthy the HEALTHY WAY, that I WANT more. 🙏🏼
I just CANT risk letting someone miss out that might really need this! 👙
WITHOUT gimmicks, scams, diet pills or sketchy chemical filled wraps. 🚫
If you're seeking out "leaner," "fitter," or "better," PLEASE do not s
Today's assignment in our online fitness #21DaystoFitwithAlyssa accountability group was to figure out at LEAST ONE thing that we are UBBBER THANKFUL for. ❤️
I've been practicing gratitude for a LONG WHILE now so it's fairly easy for me to come up with a fairly long list of things I'm grateful for with only a few seconds notice. 🤗
But.... ONE *thankful thing* to share with our Fit fam today popped RIGHT OUT at me...
Today, we got
ONE YEAR from today ONE ☝🏼 of two ✌🏼things will happen...
You'll either realize how far you've COME. 😍
OR... you'll see that you've barely moved an inch. 🤦🏼♀️
No matter what you decide to do for these next 365 days.... the time will pass ANYWAY.
Years tend to do that... they tick by even when we are quite unaware, even without permission. 😁
I could have gone one more year just "trying my best" without REALLY giving it my all.
But, INSTEAD, I made a change.
Yesterday, Austyn was looking at my watch and asked, "Why is it moving?".. referring to the second hand ticking.
I told her, "Time is always changing".
Which is why we should ALWAYS cherish it.
Some of my favorite moments recently are having the time to sit on the couch with my little girl before she goes to school, cuddling and watching shows with her.
A year ago I wouldn't have had the time to sit with her this early because I had to clock in for work.
I work from HOME.
On a business I LOVE.
& I am LEGIT changing people's LIVES for the better...
& SOMEHOW we get paid enough to support our ENTIRE FAMILY. 🤗
How INSANE is it that I only made One little decision a little over a year ago today.
One *little* decision to change my HEALTH. And THIS is what's come of it. 😍
The ONLY thing separating you from me RIGHT NOW is that I took control of my health & stopped believing the lies that there was nothing I could do to
Reading posts in the #21DaystoFitwithAlyssa challenge group today... it's got me thinking HARD.
We don't ONLY focus on fitness in these groups.
Sometimes, we GO DEEP. 🌊
We explore. We open up. We learn things about ourselves & share things that we might've otherwise kept LOCKED UP tight. 🔒
But there is such FREEDOM in the sharing.
And the connections we make here. The acceptance. The VULNERABILITY.
THIS is the stuff I crave now.
We tell our girls to be STRONG. 💪🏼
We tell our girls to be BRAVE.
We tell them to LOVE themselves.
We tell 'em to follow their DREAMS. ✌🏼
We tell them of their IMMENSE worth.
It's GREAT that we TELL them these things. But, actions speak louder than words, my friend. And they can read into most EVERY ACTION clearer than we often imagine.
👉🏼 ARE we REALLLY living these words out in our own lives?
👉🏼 Do we believe for OURSELVES what we tell our daughters??
It's not GRIEF that stops people from living, but often it's the FEAR of losing it all again.
I almost DIDN'T step back into life with the living. I was SO CLOSE to giving up & succumbing to the lies that I would NEVER be happy again. 😳
You guys, I'm SO DANG GLAD that I didn't give in. I'm SO GLAD I didn't give up. 🙏🏼
Because, this PEACE that's come from ashes has been worth EVERY OUNCE of pain. #madeforbrave #wifeandwidow
