"What blocked the path is now a path. What once impeded action advances action. The obstacle is the way." This is my most journeyed book of my #ZKbooklist2017
It's been caught in the rain, left in the sun, travelled on a road trip, spilled on and sweated on. You can't see it from the pic, but the cover actually fell off! Not my normal type of book choice, but I highly recommend it if you're interested in countless stories of how and why people were able to overcome the worst of adversities. This is a book I'm definitely hanging onto to refer back to whenever I need it. @ryanholiday #theobstacleistheway

Working on trying to keep my shoulders and arms relaxed in the jerk and just use legs. Working 8rpm on 26 to prep for IUKL world championships in Seoul South Korea in November, I'll be on 24's. Thanks for the advice @truegritkettlebell ! Filed up by @vitargo and rocking new shorts from @teslagears ! Kettlebells from @kettlebellkings smothered in @viknperformance chalk!

I had a mock meet programmed today, and I’ve been up since 3 AM. I thought about taking another rest day, but then I realized that this was an opportunity. If this was a real meet, I would absolutely compete despite not sleeping well. I normally sleep like a champ, but life happens and sometimes things don’t go as planned .
.
Shown here are all of my final lifts for the day. No lift PRs, but I managed to walk away with a 12-pound increase on my total since August. Given the circumstances of the last few days, I’m really pleased about this .
.
I looked ahead to my next cycle of programming…tonsss of 8s and 10s coming up, and I couldn’t be more excited about all of the pain I’m about to incur. πŸ™ƒπŸ˜΅ Time to get strong(er)! Thank you to my amazing friends for the encouragement today, and special thank you to @greg1022 for the moral support .
.
P.S. if anyone is curious about why everyone in the gym is wearing R.E.D., we like to Remember Everyone Deployed on Fridays. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ #gwpl #powerlifting #girlswhopowerlift #athleticbailouts #hybridaf #hybridperformancemethod #lookliftmove #theobstacleistheway #learnfromfailure #mindset

"If I can't solve this for myself, how can I at least make this better for other people?"
-
Take it for granted, for a second, that there is nothing else in it for us. Nothing we can do for ourselves.
-
How can we use this situation to benefit or teach others?
-
How can we salvage some good out of this?
-
"If not for me, then for the others I'm leading, or for those who might later find themselves in a similar situation."
-
Even if we can't carry the load all the way, we're going to take our crack at picking up the heavy end.
-
We're going to be of service to others.
-
Help ourselves by helping them.
-
Becoming better because of it, drawing purpose from it.
-
Whatever you're going through, whatever is holding you down or standing in your way, can be turned into a source of strength - by thinking of people other than yourself.
-
You won't have time to think of your own suffering, because there are other people suffering and you're too focused on them.
-
Pride can be broken. Toughness has its limits.
-
But a desire to help?
-
No harshness, no deprivation, no toil should interfere with our empathy toward others.
-
Compassion is always an option. Camaraderie as well.
-
Lend a hand to others.
-
Be strong for them - and it will make you stronger.

"We talk about courage as a society, but we forget that at its most basic level it's really just taking action." [Ryan Holiday]
This cool character is no stranger to taking action.

Those first three sentences. "Uncertainty and fear are relieved by authority. Training is authority. It's a release valve." To consider and implement authority not from the external (which is all sorts of problematic), but from within, through hard work and training, that's golden. Yes? #RyanHoliday #TheObstacleIsTheWay

Hoping there will be burpees required in-between speakers.

So happy we've been mom-ing and daughter-ing for 8 whole weeks! This delectable cheesy chunker is 23 inches long and 12lbs 1oz, putting her in the 90th percentile for both weight and height! She's large and in charge 😝 Earlier today Grey was unfortunately diagnosed with a tongue tie, but we're hopeful that continued body work & craniosacral will help us avoid a frenectomy {laser surgery in her mouth} 🀞🏼 I'm becoming totally obsessed with learning about the physiology of babies and their mamas, and how they are our perfect little mirrors that teach us to grow so we can best serve them. All of these "setbacks" just help me become more conscious and more empowered as a woman and a mom. I'm so grateful to Grey for presenting all the perfect "problems" for us to overcome together πŸ™πŸΌ 8 weeks of lessons down, infinity to go πŸ’«πŸ’œπŸŒŸ #greyalexandra #8weeksold #mynotsolittlelady #90thpercentile #mamababylove #tonguetiebaby #theobstacleistheway

Swimming was not great today, a few good laps and a few shitty ones, didn't get to go last week so I'm off on technique and breathing. Oh well. Still hit 16x25m laps with about 0:30 rest between laps to keep breathing and heart rate low. Back to the gym for 3km easy run. β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’

The right perspective will cut your adversity down to size.
Think about this...πŸ’‘
Does your emotion or outlook change or help the situation you're in? If not; it's likely a toxic thought. Remember, you're in control. Not your emotions.
