Sometimes it’s hard to truly believe in yourself, we set these paths and then get lost.. we start listening to outside voices and it molds us into doubtful people. Tune it out be the positive in the vast amount of negatives.. believe in yourself! You can do anything you put your mind to!! 💕
Nothing is better than a killer leg/glutes workout after a long day of classes😅 it was a quick workout because the gym was packed, it composed of glutes activation (look at my previous video for glutes activation ideas), 3 exercises, and an ab workout!
LEG WORKOUT 🍑🍑🍑
EXERCISE 1 (TRI-SET)
15 stiff-legged RDLs
10 single-leg RDLS
12 curtsy lunged into squeeze
Repeat x3 SETS increasing weight
12 Bulgarian splits each leg
10 Squat jumps
Repeat x3 SETS
EXERCISE 3: banded Hip Thrust
Set 1: Thrust 5 Times, pulse 5 times till you get to 20 thrusts
Set 2: Thrust 5 times, pulse 5 times till you get to 15 thrusts
Set 3: Thrust 5 times, pulse 5 times till you get to 10 thrusts
Set 4: Thrust 5 times, pulse 5 times till you get to 15 thrusts
Remember any superset or tri-set means that you do the different movements back to back with little to no rest in between. Then you should rest for a minute or so and repeat. Also it’s important to squeeze after any hip hinge movement to workout your glutes! It’s called the “ugly butt squeeze” for a reason but don’t let it stop you from doing it; it might look ugly at the gym but it won’t outside the gym 😜
Thanks @_cassiebakus for recording ❤️
Here are two clips from my workout the other day! I love complex exercises, but sometimes it’s importance to go back to the basics and keep things simple 👍🏼

▪️barbell bent row 4x10,8,6,4

My adjustable dumbbells are by @bowflex and I love them! I actually wrote a full review of them on my blog!
🏋️♀️Found myself at my old gym tonight... .
This weekend I pushed too hard and ended up tweaking my back😣. I knew this was my body telling me to ease off and take it slow over the weekend... so I reluctantly listened, but made sure to be present and enjoy the healing.
Today I was itching to get back at it! I thoroughly enjoyed challenging myself in new ways, felt STRONG💪 in my body and re-invigorated to push towards my goals!
It's not how we choose to move our bodies, it's making a point to MOVE them in a way that makes us feel good and EMPOWERED🕊. .
Here's to a new week! .
Hi everyone!🤗 I decided to make this new insta to share my fitness journey with yall and also help anyone who needs an extra push or some tips on how to achieve their own goals💪🏽 I'm 19 years old, work at a golf course part time as a cart girl and also a newly certified personal trainer at my local gym and my goal is to help as many people as possible to become the best version of themselves and get my name out there to get some sort of athletic sponsorship eventually! The picture on the left was taken in July of 2017 and the right was taken May 18th of 2018. The crazy thing is, the entire time frame in between was actually NOT spent in the gym. 🤯 I finally found a gym i love and got a membership on April 14th of 2018!! I have only been working out for about a month now and decided to also persue a career in it. Major progress? I think yes! My secret? Determination, consistency, and...... FOOD. If your goal is muscle bulding, carbs are you BFF ladies! Muscle building is definitely about 30% gym 70% FOOD😍😍💪🏽 I lift weights about 4-5 times a week for an hour. Before i was so obsessed with being a twig like all those skinny models on insta but i recently realized that muscles are sexy and girls should not be afraid to LIFT HEAVY! 🏋🏽♀️ So if yall want to follow me i will be posting workout guides, videos, pictures, and diets for ALL types of fitness goals. Weight loss, muscle building, yoga, etc. Will also be very interactive with you guys so feel FREE to ask questions and send me progress in comments, DM, or my email listed in bio🌷 I look foward to meeting and getting to know some new friendly faces🤗
The three C’s in life:
You must make the choice, to take the chance, if you want anything to change🌸 .
I made the choice to not be afraid anymore! I took a chance and started my journey! And oh has it made a change!✨ .
Becoming a coach has been the best decision I have made for myself. I have been able to become who I am meant to be and be my own boss! I get to work when I want from where I want! I did all this by making the choice to trust my gut! .

Don’t mind me just doing a wall sit- looks easy until you try and hold it for 60 seconds!
I love that coaching has allowed me to meet other fitness minded ladies who inspire me everyday.
I used to attempt home workouts, get frustrated after 1-2 attempts, and then quit, feeling like it wasn’t working for me.
The biggest difference now is that I STICK WITH IT. I fall, I struggle, it’s hard, I don’t want to do it sometimes, but I see how far other people have come doing the same workouts, and it inspires me. It pushes me to get it done instead of making excuses.
I loved feeling like I could accomplish my goals and love empowering others to do the same!

Sugars were pretty stable all day today, so thankfully I was able to go to the gym tonight.
Side view to show that I am *blessed* with a booty, and it's not always me popping it out. It does on its own. 🍑🍑😂
