Camp Gorgo 2016

I did it! I finally did it!  I FINALLY made it to Camp Gorgo!   I was beyond excited, not to mention, long overdue to meet the women at Camp Gorgo. I just couldn’t wait to embrace the weekend and….the bonding!  Ok.  Ok….there!  I said it!  The ‘bonding’.  I make it sound like a bad…

Half Splayed Arms Inversion

Good morning!  It’s #turntuptuesday  I’ve been seeing this #inversion with splayed hands and wanted to give it a try. Lol….it’s hard!  I couldn’t do it (yet) with two arms out, so I practiced this morning with one arm out and am slowly but surely finding my balance.  

Happy Friday!

Tippy Toes!

Tippy toes!  I’m working on my balance and getting to these little stabilizers in your feet and ankles helps a lot. #mondaymotivation #morningyogapractice #risegrindandyoga

It only sucks at first….lol!

Lol….most of the things you want require effort that SUCKS at first! But no one can go through it for you. You have to get started for yourself and soon realize how quickly it gets replaced with awesome. Get up. Let’s go. Everything you want is waiting for you! #mondaymotivation #riseandgrind #cantstopwontstop #getstarted

Falling Splits

It WAS a beautiful #sundayfunday in the bay. But in true NorCal fashion, it flipped the switch real quick, but not before I got to capture this! I’m soooo proud of myself because I’ve struggled with my standing balances. So this was a little wobbly, but I did a #vinyasa to #standingplits (lol…kinda) to #warrior3…

Me Time

Good morning! I hope you are finding your “me” time. YOU are too important to go unfulfilled. And those you love and love you back want nothing more FOR you, than to be happy. Taking care of yourself is an act of love for everyone #sundayfunday #loveyourselffirst #findmetime  

Basics – Triceps Pushups

Let’s not forget basic calisthenics!  I hate them, but a very effective triceps exercise is triceps push-ups. Get those hands under your chest and your elbows should scrape the sides of your body as you go up and down. When doing body weight only exercises aim to hit double digit reps. Today I hit 12…

I Love The Smith Machine

Happy Friday!  I’m going to share ONLY ONE of my dirty little secrets!  I NEVER squat!  Well not in the traditional bodybuilder sense in the squat rack. My body is out of whack due to some muscle imbalances (that I’m working on) but it causes my squat form to be terrible. So I perform almost…
