Typical morning mess✨ I've started making this coffee concoction thing for Jonathan and I... I can't drink coffee straight black yet, but dairy also messes with both Jonathan and I... SO I came up with this and wanted to share it with y'all.
First I OBVI brew enough coffee for Jonathan and I to have a cup. Then in a blender I put the coffee, a couple HEAPING tablespoons of coconut cream, a couple spoonfuls of sugar. (I do turbinado sugar... I suggest coconut sugar as well. Anything that's as natural as possible. So NO WHITE SUGAR.) if you can go without sugar, I'd suggest that. Haha. 1/2 tbsp of cinnamon, 1 tbsp of cocoa powder. THEN BLEND IT AND ENJOY YO.
Dairy free. We like it. Maybe you will too?
Great morning, all my Relations!
Today is a great day to refocus.
Sometimes, we get distracted by things, and sometimes, we get distracted by people. Sometimes, we get distracted by emotions, and sometimes, we willingly distract ourselves away from that which we must face. .
Today, let's focus on that which we may have lost focus on. Write (or type up) your dreams on some paper, make moves today that will bring your dreams a day closer to achievement, and let's GO CATCH SOME DREAMS, DREAM CATCHERS!! 😎
Talking about #goals in our accountability group that kicks off today, and this just made me laugh!
On a serious note, I'm over the MOON to be working with 15+ ladies who are about to KILL the month of May. 💪👊
What are some of your goals for May?
Simple. Delicious. Protein packed. 💪🏻 Birthday cake protein pancakes topped with warm blueberries! 🎂🎉 These are a PERFECT post workout/busy morning breakfast for basically anyone who likes pancakes and protein. 🙋🏼 Just mix 1 egg (or two-three egg whites, one banana, and one scoop of protein powder! Any flavour is good, seriously. I used @teamallmax birthday cake protein! 🎉 Either mash it all together or blend it up, grease your frying pan with coconut oil, cook, and enjoy! 🥞 ALSOOO... Who got in their Monday morning workout this morning? I diddd!!! It was only 17 minutes of low impact hitt but something is always better than nothing. 🤗 Plus my right knee has been bothering me extraaaaa bad since I've started working two jobs, so it's important that I listen to my body and take it easy when I need to! ❣️ It's gotta last me a full lifetime! 🌹Wishing you all an incredible day filled with love, laughter, and happiness! Remember that YOU determine what kind of day you are going to have, no matter what the situation may be. 🙏🏼 #beabetteryou#mondaylovin '

It's Monday, which means it's a new week, and that brings new opportunities!! Unfortunately this Mama bought a one way ticket to the Hot Mess Express this morning. Locked keys in the car can totally screw up your day. Jackson missed school, can't run my errands or enjoy this beautiful weather on the walk I had planned. Impromptu Spring Cleaning is calling my name. But first some Vitamin C.....
When I tell people I get up at 5am everyday to workout, the usual reaction I get is 😳😲 "but how? Why? I can't imagine doing that!!" So I thought I would share some tips that have worked for me to set yourself up for success with early AM workouts. I have also had a hard time getting myself out of bed recently, and could use a friendly reminder! .
1) 📝Prepare everything the night before: lay out clothes, shoes, gear, water bottle, shake, etc. (obviously not staged like my pic, but you get it) Make it so that you have as little as possible to do that morning. That way all you have to do is wake up, change, and go. I put my clothes in the bathroom. I always have to pee first thing, that way they are staring at me and I don't even have to leave the bathroom to change 🙈
2) 🚨Set a realistic alarm(s): I set 1 alarm for 5am. I snooze it sometimes, but never set 2 alarms. My sleep is too precious for that haha BUT, some people need 8 alarms to get up. Know what is realistic for you, and set yourself up accordingly.
3) 😴Go to bed early!!: I cannot stress this enough. I start to get ready for bed at 8:30pm. Again, my sleep is too precious. And you'll need that sleep.
4) 👎🏻Do not lay in bed after turning your alarm off. Trust me, I know from experience (aka this morning). You most likely will not sleep for just "5 more minutes". You'll wake up an hour later pissed off that you missed your workout!
5) 👯Get a buddy to get up with you! You don't even have to workout together, but knowing you have someone counting on you to text them that you're up will help keep you accountable.
6) 🐢Ease into the routine. If this is a major change for you, don't try to go all in right away. Start off a few days a week and increase as you can.
7) 📆BE CONSISTENT! They say if you do something for 30 days, it becomes a habit. Stay driven, and get yourself into a routine. Before you know it you will be waking up at 5am naturally. Even on Saturdays. And isn't that what we all want??!!! .
Okay that was the longest post ever, I hope no one fell asleep. Let me know if these helped! Over and out ✌🏻
Sitting in my new favorite part of my #vasa gym...this is my spot...my spot where the shoulder workout of my life occurred with @bmackpack and the @transformforlife squad!!! I'm on a crash course...if you thought I was hungry the last 12 weeks you just wait and watch what the next 8 weeks can bring now that I can see myself!!! Whether you participated in the #250kchallenge or not i hope you are a even more hungry for your goals than you were yesterday and your old self from January. You all have negative voices in your life...ignore them and rid yourself of them if possible. This is nothing but good old fashioned YOUvsYOU! You go out and you do everything in your power to create your life and it WILL happen a little at a time! Change your mind! Change your body! Change your LIFE! #morningmotivation#stillinit17#stillinit#bodybuildingcom#dymatize#dadbod#iifym#strongdad#fitdad#mondaymotivation

I find that most humans (including myself) like to believe we have the ability to control everything that happens to us. Planning is in our nature as we are taught that is necessary for situations go "in our favor." This is a common misconception.⠀
Planning usually works in opposition to true human nature because we struggle to determine what we truly want in any given moment. The confusion we experience in our minds', creates conflict by sending the universe mixed messages of our "wants."⠀
Each time we put out an unclear thought, it creates a potential for unexpected results (no matter what those may be). But even when an "unfavorable" situation presents itself, it only becomes problematic or stressful if we allow it to be.⠀
Things ALWAYS work out for the best because we are ALWAYS being taken care of by a higher power. The more flexible we can be when these situations arrive, the stronger we become. Learn to roll with life's punches rather than fighting back and I promise it will get way easier! 😘😘😘⠀
Karyn here, reminding you to get that Cardio Fat Burn correct!
If your cardio choice is circuits of 15 or 10 minutes on the Bike, then move to the Treadmill for 10 minutes, then onto the Stairclimber for the same, you are burning very little Fat. If your goal is to lose weight and/or get leaner and burn Fat, you have to increase the amount of time on each machine, at least 20 minutes on each. Then, you'll need to slowly increase the amount of time on each machine separately. Starting and stopping every 10 or 15 minutes to move over to the next machine interrupts the body going what is called, "kerns cycle" where the body starts to burn fat, about 20 minutes into your cardio. <<<<<<<<<< Best case scenario is to spend 15 minutes a piece on two different machines, then spend 20 minutes (30 or more is better, work your way up to it) on the last one machine.
Better still, come to Spin Class! Hope to see you soon! 🚴🏼🚴🏼🚴🏼🚴🏼🚴🏼🚴🏼🚴🏼🚴🏼😛😛
