  • Just something for you to think about: How many times have you been putting something you wanted to do to the side, thinking you‘re gonna wait until the time is right? Be honest with yourself. • • I‘m gonna take a wild guess and say 95% of the ideas you had and the plans you wanted to make never happened. Simply because we always believe waiting until the time is right is a thing to do. Well I‘m here to tell you that it‘s not. You‘re never gonna find the right time, because it doesn’t exist. Nothing’s gonna be perfect on the first try. What makes it better and better is the effort you put in as soon as you start doing it. You don’t need to have everything figured out in order to start something. It’s gonna figure itself out, I promise. All you need to do is actually doing something. Don‘t sit around talking about it, go out and DO THE THING. Whatever that may be. It can be something as simple as cutting off your hair or learning that instrument you always wanted to learn down to building your own business, releasing a book or whatever else you can think of. You have all these possibilities right in front of you and all you ever do is considering them. This is your reminder to start doing it. You start and you‘re gonna give it your all. And it‘s not gonna be easy. It‘s gonna be far from it. Try it and allow yourself to fail. Try again and fail better. Know that it’s not impossible. You can get everything you want - but only if you’re ready to work for it. ✨ #dothething #igniteyourfire #lionheartedstrong

  • There’s a lot of teenage girls and young 20 somethings that follow this page. If that’s you- maybe you’re starting college or in college. Maybe you’re confused about what path to take with your life. I know I was- and still feel that way sometimes. . I want to offer some wisdom- informal and from a place of experience- rather than advice (as @krissymaecagney put it so well) because I’m still a young twenty something in college and trying to figure out my purpose 🤷🏼‍♀️ But I think I can offer you a bit of what I’ve learned in the last four years of school. . 🔅 Classes are only going to get harder (obvi, i know). Harder classes are harder A’s. 4.0 as many classes as you possibly can early on. Come out of the gate strong so you’re not playing catch up later on. . Well Kodi if I don’t know what program I’m gonna apply to how do I know if I’m gonna need those A’s anyways?👇🏽 🔅Answer: nobody ever regretted putting in the extra effort to get the better grade. Rather be safe than sorry! Short story time: i once was finishing up a theater class. yes theater. With a 3.5. Good grade but all I needed to do was attend a few hours of stage production for enough extra credit to get the A. It was a little thing that made a big difference. 🔅 People who go the extra mile are the people who get into competitive programs. Don’t want to get into a competitive program? People who go the extra mile in college also go the extra mile in their careers. Keep going. Whatever you do- it will pay off 🔅 Be proactive. Proactive isn’t “what can I do to help?” It’s “here’s what I’ve done to help.” 🔅 Be a team player. Read that again. 🔅 Be prepared with the knowledge that there’s things that you just. can’t. prepare. for. You’re going to learn how to make it happen regardless. 🔅 Ask for help. You should have several mentors. People doing what you want to do. People who have done it. Talk to them often. . . I could probably add 20 more things to this list but I’ll leave it at this for now. Did anybody find this helpful in any way? I want to be a helpful resource to those who need to hear this so leave a comment with something you would add or something I can talk about next 👇🏽

  • I love asking people about the person they are becoming. READ 👇🏽 . Not where you’re going, with who, when - although those are important, (read yesterday’s post) it’s not what I’m referring to. . I’m talking about personal development. I’m talking about character. How do you live your life? . The person I’m becoming is passionate about everything she does. Patient. Confident enough to pursue anything she wants. Easy to talk to and confide in. Selfless. A dedicated servant of Christ. Fearless. Determined. Courageous. She’s Lionhearted Strong. . Who is the person you’re becoming? . PS I loved hearing about your dreams on my last post. You guys Inspire me <3 . . #sundayvibes #lionheartedstrong #aspiretoinspire #evolve

  • I wanna know what your dream life looks like. Before you keep scrolling, be real with yourself for 5 minutes and write down what life would be like if you were living your dream. . It’s important you know what your dream is because otherwise you’re wandering aimlessly. You don’t need EVERY detail. . But write it down. . Include everything. What’s your job? Where are you? Who are you with? What are you doing? What are you willing to compromise and what are you not? Maybe all the details aren’t important. Maybe a couple are uncompromisable. . Things are probably going to change- our dreams tend to do that as we grow, change, have new experiences .. . But if you can’t put an answer down to these questions 👆🏽 - you’re going to have a hard time making decisions that affect your future. . . #lionheartedstrong #decisionmaking #perspective #lifestylechange

  • What do you do when you’re uninspired? . I got home this afternoon feeling very uninspired and just not myself. . I sometimes scroll through my feed and read what I previously have wrote when I was feeling more like myself. Or I read through some feeds of people who inspire me. I also will look through my photo album to a time I was in a better mood- like on this particular day when I was at the beach in Jacksonville a few months back. . I might not be able to sit at the beach with frozen custard in my hand everyday, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be inspired and excited everyday. Amiright?? .

  • I thrive on creativity. • It took me a long time to understand this about myself. • It’s no wonder I love coaching so much- it allows me to be creative. Every individual is unique, after all, and needs something different to be successful. • I love designing things- websites, scrapbooks, furniture, you name it. • I love creative writing- speeches (anybody wanna watch my maid of honor speech from @kenzie_murr and @larsmurray24 wedding? I’ll email you the link lol), writing IG captions 🤷🏼‍♀️ and writing cute love notes on the fridge for @shaneomara_dpt 😘 • It’s no wonder I love baking and (sometimes) cooking. There’s so much room for creativity. • I’m obsessed with photography and videography even though I don’t do much creating in this department. It’s fascinating. • I’m also fascinated by artists and dancers. If I was coordinated even slightly I would be a dancer for sure 🤷🏼‍♀️💃🏼 • Anybody else? . . #lionheartedstrong #creativityforlife #weekendvibes #saturdayz

  • My life changed when I decided to just make SH*T happen . I sometimes wonder how my life would be different if I hadn't spent so much time making excuses . "I don't have enough time" "I don't have enough money" "I don't have rich parents" (like I thought every successful fit person must have because who can fully commit to this lifestyle while also going to school and working a job?) "I'm too stressed" "I'm not 'outgoing' enough" "I'm waiting for a door to open” . While many of these are perfectly fine reasons to not get other things done- a lot of times they are just hindering your potential. Make time, save your money, work hard, organize your schedule, practice socializing/being outgoing/making friends, build a door or make opportunities for yourself. Amazing things happen when we quit making excuses ⭐️ . . #lionheartedstrong #faithoverfear #makeithappen #happyandhealthy #lifestylechange #fridayinspiration

  • Raise your hand if vacation has ever felt stressful to you because you wanted to stay healthy but didn’t wanna have to stress about it? 🙌🏽 . . It’s easy to look at what makes other people happy/ healthy and expect that that will work for us. . “So and so woke up every morning on vacation and ran a mile. Do I have to do that??” . Or “my friend eliminated alcoholic beverages on her trip and didn’t gain weight. Do I have to do that??” . What works best for everyone else is not necessarily what’s going to make you happy (who wants to have a lame or stressful vacation? not me) or healthy (stress is not healthy people, neither is obsessing over food/ calories, and neither is overeating because you don’t have a plan). . But it’s difficult to not be so influenced by everyone else’s version of health and happiness. . Here’s my real life example maybe some of you can relate to or appreciate👇🏽 . I went on an all inclusive trip to Cabo in March (that’s where this pic was taken). I had never done all inclusive before and was STOKED to eat lots of good food and to be able to try all different kinds of drinks 🍹🍸🍷 . I had many people asking me during that trip what low cal drinks I was having. I explained that I wasn’t 🤷🏼‍♀️ I was drinking whatever kinds of drinks I wanted. . I made the choice to have whatever drinks I wanted, but keep my meals on the “healthier” side. And this didn’t take away from my trip whatsoever. In fact, I felt really, really good about this decision. . For ME, this was what made me HAPPY and HEALTHY on this trip 😊 . As we know- maybe this wouldn’t have been the best route for you to take. You need to come up with your own game plan. Figure out what makes you happiest and healthiest in situations like these and rock it out 😎💃🏼 . .

  • I started crying in my car this morning (I’m emotional ok) because I felt this overwhelming urge to share this with you guys- that maybe somebody really needs to hear this right now. ^ In my experience- you can’t change people. All you can do is provide them with tools and knowledge and lead by example. The rest is up to them. They have to want to make a change. You. can’t. do. it. for. them. ^ It really doesn’t matter if he/ she falls in love with you. It really doesn’t matter how long you’ve been friends. Or how long you have been dating. *insert scenario* ^ I also wanted to tell you that people are going to hurt your feelings. Some people are probably going to stab you in the back at some point in your life. This is not a reflection of you. This is a reflection of them. It may be poor character, jealousy, insecurity, who knows. who cares. ^ What’s important is that you don’t get hung up on it for too long. Don’t let anybody else’s issues drag you down, hold you back, or keep you from living your life. Don’t wait around for people to change for you. You gotta keep on movin’ boo. Don’t waste your time. Don’t waste your energy. These things are too precious and should be preserved for the right people 🖤 . . #lionheartedstrong #sundaythoughts #july2018

Put aside all that you want to do for just a minute and be proud of yourself. ^ Realize how much potential you have. Realize how blessed you truly are. Realize how beautiful life is. ^ You’re going to do great things. You’re going to accomplish what you have your heart set on. You WILL. ^ But just be proud of what you are already doing. Be proud of what you HAVE done. ^ Something I’m really proud of that I don’t express enough is my clients. And the business I’ve built because of them. My clients are BADASS, hard workers, and I’m proud to have them by my side. ^ What are you proud of? . . #lionheartedstrong #kodihumphreyfitness #grindandbegrateful

  • Do you realize that you might be just a few small, sustainable steps away from getting on track to your weight loss goals? ^ Here’s some ideas to consider 👇🏽 ^ 1.) Switch to diet pop and calorie free drinks. There’s a million and a half great options. Stop drinking your calories. ^ 2.) Prioritize protein. Buffet? Potluck? No problem. Enjoy a little bit of each thing you want, but start out with some protein. It will fill you up a bit and you will make sure to get some #gains in there ^ 3.) You don’t have to give up cheddar biscuits when you go out to dinner (yanno, the red lobster ones?) you just have to give up eating 6 cheddar biscuits 🤷🏼‍♀️ #guilty ^ 4.) Drink your water. ^ 5.) Switch to fat free/ low fat options. Example: I eat a bag of popcorn everyday. At least one bag. Low fat popcorn still tastes great (and I add tons of cheesy popcorn salts duh- cause there’s no calories in that) and has 100-200 less calories per bag That’s 700-1400 calories a week. THATS POTENTIALLY 1/4 POUND RIGHT THERE. Example B: low/ fat free coffee creamer. Still tastes great. Saves me tons of calories (who else drinks 29 cups of coffee a day? 🙋🏼‍♀️) ^ Can you think of other ways you can easily save yourself some calories? ^ Small steps. Little changes. Big differences over time. . . #lionheartedstrong #dietchange #lifestylechange #smallchanges #kodihumphreyfitness

  • How the heck do you know if you’re doing what you’re called to do? ^ One of my clients texted me and asked me this this morning and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. ^ You pray. Pray for guidance and do what feels right. Do what sets your heart on fire and pleases the Lord. ^ Try lots of different things. Do all sorts of adventures. Go places. There might be an incredible opportunity right around the corner, but you will never know if you don’t check it out. ^ Whatever you do, do it selflessly. Unpopular opinion: it’s not all about you. ^ Never settle. You were made to do incredible things. ^ What do you think?

  • “Why do you like powerlifting so much?” ^ I love when people ask me this question because it gives me the opportunity to advocate for such a great sport 🤩 ^ Where to begin? ... ^ Powerlifting gives me a chance to work toward something (getting stronger) while simultaneously growing muscle, staying active, and staying healthy. The gym time is also my ME time. Win win win win. win. ^ Like many of you, I played sports in high school.🏀 🏃🏼‍♀️ I knew when I got to college I had to do something 🤷🏼‍♀️ ^ So why not just train for fun? ^ That’s not a good enough “why” for me (refer to my last post) 🤷🏼‍♀️ ^ I’m goal-oriented to the core. My “why” has to be very important to me or I won’t waste my time (just being honest). I conserve my time and energy for the important things. ^ Other things I love about powerlifting. It’s an individual sport. I go at my pace and do it my own way. I go to the gym when it’s convenient for me. The powerlifting community is incredible- everyone cheers for each other at meets; it’s such a fun environment. ^ If you’re a powerlifter- what do you love about the sport? Why do you do it? ^ If you’re not a powerlifter but are curious about it, what questions do you have? . . #lionheartedstrong #powerliftingmotivation #powerliftingwomen #usapl #powerliftinglife

  • If I could give just one piece of advice, this is what it would be: ^ STOP holding yourself back to make people around you more comfortable. ^ Here’s some examples for you: ^ I got a lot of crap from people when I created this IG account 3 years ago. People said “oh no not another ‘fitness’ chick sharing her journey.” A lot of people poked fun at me. (For the record many of them have returned to ask for my advice 🙀) ^ Another example: I told people I was “training for fun” for a long time because I didn’t feel like I could call myself a powerlifter- that might make people uncomfortable.. 😣 ^ Another example: I told some people I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to go to college for because some are intimidated by people with big goals, a plan, and plus, “you will change your mind anyway along the way” 🙄 (PS I didn’t. 4 years into college at the same university and 4 semesters through the same graduate program I’ve had my eyes on since my senior year of HS 🙇🏼‍♀️) ^ Anotha one: I’ve eaten things, put away my food scale, tried to hide going to the gym, and countless other things at time to make people feel more comfortable around me, more comfortable about their unhealthy lifestyle, you name it. ^ There was a time when I didn’t share much about my faith because religion makes people uncomfortable. Welllll this is my page so you can leave if you’re offended or don’t like something I say 🤷🏼‍♀️ #sorrynotsorry yanno ^ How often do we say things, or don’t say things, do things, or don’t do things to make people more comfortable where they’re at? It’s sad that we feel the need to do it. ^ Share your dreams loud and proud. Be proud of your hard work. Do what you have to do- regardless of how other people are gonna feel. It’s your life 💪🏽 ^ #dontforgettoflex #flexfriday #lionheartedstrong #kodihumphreyfitness #summergroup2.0 #noperfectpeopleallowed

  • If I could be anything what would I be? ^ I frequently ask myself this. I want to be a lot of things. And my list keeps growing, but I’ve got a lifetime (Lord willing). ^ ▪️A full time coffee-drinker, for one. DUH. @liveoakcoffeehouse ▪️A competitor - I wanna do all the sports. Train for all the things. I wanna push my body in every way possible (Maybe even run a race of some kind someday? Don’t hold your breath though). ▪️ I also want to train for fun. The gym is my “me” time (that’s why I don’t take pics/ videos at the gym hardly ever 🤷🏼‍♀️). ▪️A major foodie. Like Guy Fieri except I probably won’t have my own TV show- but that’s okay (I frequently stop at places he’s been whenever traveling across the country). ▪️An occupational therapist. I wanna help people do what they LOVE and need to do. What’s cooler than that?!? ▪️A coach. Nothing brings me to life quite like teaching people how to transform their bodies, how to powerlifter, how to eat to reach their goals. I could go on and on. ▪️SOMEDAY- I want to be a wife and a mother ▪️to be continued ^ What do you want to be? The opportunities are endless 🖤 . . #lionheartedstrong #coffeeconnoisseur #liveoakcoffeehouse #dreamerswelcome #liveonpurpose

  • Today I was challenged to speak kindly to myself by @katherinedonna and to share 1.) something I love about myself 2.) something I am proud of 3.) something I need to work on ^ something I love about myself is my relentless effort to evolve. I put a lot of energy into becoming the person I want to be. No excuses. ^ I am proud of the balance I’ve established, and continue to establish, in my life. I’ve eliminated so many “extremes” in my life and work hard to balance all of my priorities- my relationship w Jesus, family, school, work, friends, fitness. ^ I need to work on chilling the ef out when I don’t have a set-in-stone schedule for the day. I’ve been go-go-go for literally years. For the first time since probably my freshman year of college, I have a little “free time” and I do mean a little lol. Productivity standards do not (should not) rule my life. ^ This reflection has been good for me. I challenge my Red Jags teammates to answer these questions @sammarcath @hoopsdelrey @kasey_flintoft and some dear friends that I miss and hope come visit me soon @carrie_fitness @kelly.lenahan @katieanne100 @desb___ ^ #lionheartedstrong #sundayreflection #sundayvibes

  • You don’t owe everybody an explanation for your passions. ^ But with this in mind- remember that sometimes people genuinely want to know more. But maybe don’t know how to ask. ^ Maybe it’s an opportunity to inspire someone who’s uninspired. ^ I always get asked- why are you going to school for OT if you love fitness and nutrition so much?!?! ^ Good question. I don’t have to answer in detail to everyone who asks me this. I could just say “oh OT is a great field and I just like it.” And to some people- this is what I say. ^ But I try to take the opportunity to INSPIRE people because you never know who might need it. ^ People notice when you’re enthusiastic about what you do- and they want to know WHY. It’s a good thing. Advocate for what you’re passionate about, your hobby, lifestyle, field of practice, whatever it may be (and if you’re not enthusiastic about what you do, you should change that shit up realllll quick). ^ What do you do that you’re enthusiastic about?? 👇🏽👇🏽 ^ ^ #lionheartedstrong #saturdaymotivation #loveyourlifeorchangeit

  • I used to hate being in front of a camera. All I could notice in photos of myself was stray hairs, my outfit didn’t look right, how awkward I looked, blah blah blah. ^ What I couldn’t appreciate then that I do now is the art of capturing moments. It’s beautiful to be able to look back on photographs and remember that vacation, that day, that moment. ^ Looking back, we don’t care what clothes we had on (I know- the long, Aeropostale graphic tees was not a cute trend. I lived it, too, but I digress). ^ We just want to be able to go back in time and relive the moment. ^ I mentioned this in yesterday’s post, but it’s 100% true and worth mentioning again —> the only photos you regret are the ones you don’t take. ^ Life is beautiful. You never get to do today over again. Capture moments. . . #lionheartedstrong #jaxbeach #thankfulthursdays #throwbackthursdayyy

  • You need to read this right now. • Life is freaking beautiful. Don’t miss a single second of it. Get outside every chance you get. Don’t waste time. Soak up the sun. Enjoy good company. Praise Jesus. Often. This world offers us endless opportunities. Find your passion. Run with it. Love fiercely. Get off your phone. Turn the radio up. Eat a lot of ice cream. Take a lot of pictures- the only ones you will regret are the ones you don’t take 🤷🏼‍♀️ Laugh a lot. Never stop learning new things. Plan vacations and staycations because experiences > THINGS. Nobody but you cares what clothes you wear or what kind of truck you drive 😅 Life is not a competition so be HAPPY FOR PEOPLE JEEZ. Call your friends. Appreciate your parents. Wear whatever you want.

  • Nature is cool, guys. It’s really devastating to me how much our plastic usage affects all the innocent little lives, like my turtle friend here, and how little the majority of our population cares. Even the smallest lifestyle changes can help lessen the impact of the massive plastic footprint we are leaving. Plastic can take up to 1000 YEARS to decompose. Take reusable bags to the grocery store. Say no to plastic straws. Recycle your soda bottles. Reuse plastic containers. It might not seem like a huge impact for the individual, but imagine if everyone started doing it?! #lionheartedstrong #reducereuserecycle #nature

  • Why are the first things that come to our minds when we think about who we are all the things we don‘t like about ourselves? • We are taught to not say „I love myself/ I‘m awesome/ I‘m beautiful“ because it makes us look arrogant and full of ourselves. But it honestly doesn‘t. It makes us love who we are, makes us confident. And when we get to that point - the highest point of self acceptance and self love - people will get offended because they can‘t offend you anymore. These people can‘t learn to be okay with themselves and so they want to drag you down. They want you to feel just as bad as them but you won‘t let them. And that‘s what scares them. It takes a lot of practise to get to that point of self acceptance and there‘s always room to improve. And you can only get better when you try. So try. ✨ I want you to take pen and paper and write down 5 things you love about yourself. Highlight the positives. Write them down and read them. Over and over and over again. Manifest them into your brain so that from now on, whenever someone asks who you are you can let them know these 5 words about you. That‘s how you spread acceptance and positivity. By accepting yourself. Enjoying yourself. Loving yourself. Appreciating yourself. It all starts with you. 🌻 ——————————— Feel free to write your five words into the comments and help spread positivity and self-love ❤️ #workinprogress #evolve #beyourself #igniteyourfire #lionheartedstrong #acceptance #motivation #bethelight #positivevibes

  • Just something for you to think about: How many times have you been putting something you wanted to do to the side, thinking you‘re gonna wait until the time is right? Be honest with yourself. • • I‘m gonna take a wild guess and say 95% of the ideas you had and the plans you wanted to make never happened. Simply because we always believe waiting until the time is right is a thing to do. Well I‘m here to tell you that it‘s not. You‘re never gonna find the right time, because it doesn’t exist. Nothing’s gonna be perfect on the first try. What makes it better and better is the effort you put in as soon as you start doing it. You don’t need to have everything figured out in order to start something. It’s gonna figure itself out, I promise. All you need to do is actually doing something. Don‘t sit around talking about it, go out and DO THE THING. Whatever that may be. It can be something as simple as cutting off your hair or learning that instrument you always wanted to learn down to building your own business, releasing a book or whatever else you can think of. You have all these possibilities right in front of you and all you ever do is considering them. This is your reminder to start doing it. You start and you‘re gonna give it your all. And it‘s not gonna be easy. It‘s gonna be far from it. Try it and allow yourself to fail. Try again and fail better. Know that it’s not impossible. You can get everything you want - but only if you’re ready to work for it. ✨ #dothething #igniteyourfire #lionheartedstrong

  • Which is more difficult- living in the present or living in the past? . Honestly think about it. I wanna know what you think 💭 . For me, living in the past has never been an issue, but living in the present is challenging for me sometimes. . It requires ‘forgetting’ about your todo list long enough to truly enjoy the moment. . I would argue that truly living in the present requires you to go with the flow, forgive easily, and keep smiling. . Life is now. It’s happening. It’s all around. And I don’t want to waste any time worrying about the future or fretting about the past. . Don’t let what’s happened or what will happen rob of what’s happening right. now. . . #lionheartedstrong #courageousdeterminedstrong

  • I went for a run today and realized I really suck at running (to the point where I think a turtle would easily be faster than me 🧐🤷🏼‍♀️) but that doesn‘t mean I‘ll stop running. Why? .. Because you don‘t have to be good at something to enjoy it! Please read that again and remember it. You do stuff because you enjoy doing them, just think about all the hobbies you have. What got you started? An interest. What kept you going? Enjoying it. The mile stones and goals you hit in the process of that are great and a good motivation but the main reason you do it is because it brings you joy. At least that‘s what it should do. So please don‘t let anyone tell you you‘re „not good enough“ at something to not do it. There‘s no standard you have to meet to do things you love. YOU DONT HAVE TO BE GOOD AT SOMETHING TO ENJOY IT! #lionheartedstrong #motivation #happiness

  • Maybe it’s not an “L” but more of a “TIE.” Here me out 👇🏽 . How often do we feel like we are losing when in reality, we ARE taking steps 👣forward, we just maybe are not where we wanna be❓ . For example, I am currently deadlifting about 50 pounds less for sets of 5 than I was in November. It’s frustrating. Nobody likes being set back. . But the reality is that I can not go on forever without working on mobility and fine tuning my performance. I can’t keep going forward without strengthening my shoulder and hip. I’m still progressing forward, though, so why call this an L? I think it’s more of a tie after-all 🤷🏼‍♀️ . This is a mindset I think we all need to have a little more often.

  • Just been thinking lately about how much of our life is consumed by technology. Some days I just want to throw my phone out the window of my car. So here’s my little ramble this morning- I’ve been reflecting on all the times I’ve missed a cute bunny outside my window, a kind smile from a stranger, a good conversation with a loved one- all because my face was in a screen. I don’t know about you, but I know my time on earth isn’t guaranteed even into the next moment. Starting now, I am going to make a conscious effort to be present not only physically, but also with my attention to those around me, instead of those I see scrolling through my phone. I don’t receive love and gratification from likes and comments on photos. I want to receive it from those I surround myself with in my every day life. I don’t have any sort of following that even remotely cares what I say or post to my social media. Even this post is more or less just a public promise to myself and those in my reality that I will be present for them, for myself. I want to see the bunnies and smile back at the strangers. I want to cherish moments in my life, not pictures on the Gram. It makes me so sad when I see my friends so consumed by getting views and likes on their selfies. If you’re gonna share- why not share your experiences, what you love, your REAL. When you die, do you want this timeline of your life left for your loved ones to look at to contain 873 mirror selfies? I’m not dissing the use of Instagram and other SM outlets because obviously.. here I am. But at the end of the day, your Instagram or your Twitter and all the people within those apps don’t know your heart. They don’t know your dreams, your fears, your scars. Put your phone down. Build up your relationships, your actual life, not the one you want everyone to perceive you to have. How much of your life passes by while you stare at your phone? 🤔

Today marks three whole weeks of being able to squat like a normal human being (sans hip flexor pain knock on wood) and so I’m starting an actual training block for the first time since November.
