I am getting stronger. Physically and mentally. Tonight, I splurged on some ice cream cake ... In the past, this would get to me.. “why did I do that” “I feel terrible” “this will ruin everything”..etc. Now, I am like “DAMN that was good” “treat yo self” “One dessert is NOT going to ruin all I have done” “breath”. It’s about balance, people! Check my insta story for my workout from this morning. .

What are your health goals? Do you actually have concrete attainable goals WITH a plan of how to get there.. or do you just go through through motions?
I noticed that without writing your goals down, they don’t accomplished- because then they are just dreams. (So cliche, I know)- BUT true. I encourage you to write down your goals- whether it be for your own mental or physical health. This week, my goal is to make sure I get outside in the sun- even if it’s just for a 15 minute lunch. With this time change it gets so dark so early and can really alter my mood! See my Instagram story for my KILLER leg workout 🍑

RANT ALERT 🚨 please read if you want to build a booty! —� try this, NOT that video.
So, first part of video shows proper glute activation with donkey kicks. You can see my head is in a neutral position, my core is engaged, and back is flat. I am NOT arching my back or using momentum. I am focusing on squeezing my GLUTES. I am literally squeezing my butt to lift my leg- if you do that, you will not be able to perform repetitions fast. One thing I would change in the first video is to keep my ankle more dorsiflexed. The second part of the video shows poor hip and core stability and use of momentum and lower back to perform the donkey kick— which WILL NOT BUILD YOU THE BUTT YOU WANT. You will also probably hurt yourself. .

⚠️⚠️⚠️RANT ALERT 🚨! PLEASE READ.
Planks are one of the best core exercises IF you can properly perform them. I cannot tell you how many patients I have had who say "yeah I do planks.. I can hold them for like a minute no problem". Then I have them perform one and their form is like the top picture. Top picture: poor spinal alignment with increased lumbar lordosis and poor scapula positioning. Bottom picture: core engagement through protraction of shoulder blades and crunching rib cage towards pelvis while keeping belly button drawn in towards spine- creating a slight dome in the low back. Contrary to public belief- the slight doming is OKAY! This will engage your core more and take off pressure of your low back. When I re-educate patients how to do this their mind is blown of how much HARDER this is on their core!!! Form is key. Try it for yourself! .

#selfiesunday ! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend- I know I did! Got to celebrate one of my bestest friends weddings and be around so many good friends- shared lots of tears, laughs, and smiles. Indulged in delicious food and definitely had multiple "cheat" meals. BUT, well worth it because I know that one weekend is not going to set me back and I will get right back on track tomorrow! .

On a scale of 1 to BASIC, I'm saying this is probably the most BASIC AF picture ever. Sorry not sorry. Hope everyone enjoys their weekend! I will be celebrating my best friends wedding and splurging on drinks and food because WE ALL deserve too. TREAT YO SELF. .

Tight hip flexors? This is my absolute favorite hip flexor stretch. Find a wall, straddle it as in picture. Make sure your back is pressed FLAT INTO THE WALL (no arching) and your BUTT IS SQUEEZED on the side you are stretching. Hold for 1-2 minutes on each side. .

Full body workout today! I have still been sticking to @alexia_clark workouts. Yes, I have my CSCS and DPT and train people myself...but there's something about having someone else kick your ass that makes it so much better! .

Confession: I woke up today with intense anxiety and DID NOT want to go to work. But, I knew I had too. I have patients and coworkers who count on me and I couldn't let them down. Anxiety is a real thing, that I am sure many of you guys struggle with. It is all about how we handle it. I have made improvements in how I react but still struggle. I am lucky I have such a supportive group of coworkers and supportive family and boyfriend that make this a little easier to tackle on a daily basis. So yes, I MADE IT TO WORK TODAY. And it was challenging but I am here and am doing it! I will not let anxiety ruin my day. Breathe, it all works out 🤗

Post 7 mile run re-fuel food. Brown rice cakes with avocado and franks (of course) and another rice cake with all natural peanut butter and dairy free mini chocolate chips. And as always, rehydrating with my @cb_mequon water bottle! .
