Pole is letting me become everything I never thought I could be 😂🙈
I always said..
I will never be flexible
I will never be elegant
I cannot be girly
I have spent years in street dance, weight lifting and sweaty each and every day and now I’m...
Pointing my toes
And feeling like a woman 💪🏻💪🏻
My strength has increased so much since starting pole and I love every second 💪🏻💪🏻🏋️♀️🧘🏻♀️🤸♂️

Nelson Cruz is an example of a hitter that gets his toe down super early, but is still able execute the weight shift incredibly effectively. I tend to speak in hyperbole when discussing generalized coaching cues that we’ve all heard since little league. I’ve said “nobody gets their foot down early” more times than I can count, but in reality it’s more of a challenge to the people that think getting your foot down early is an imperative aspect of hitting. The reason why Nelson Cruz executes this movement so well is because he doesn’t allow his weight to shift forward at the moment of toe touch, just like somebody using a leg kick. It’s not until the heel goes down that he begins turning to the ball with bad intentions. Far too often I see kids (10-14 years old) that are way too over-coached with the foot down early cue and it leads to a swing in which the hands/arms and body work independently of each other. Having this type of disconnected swing will not lead to long term hitting success, but you can probably hit .600 as an 11 year old with it. If you are a hitter that feels more comfortable getting your toe down early, or a coach that feels like it’s a must despite what the data says please take a minute to examine how Nelson Cruz performs this movement. #baseball#baseballperformance#softball#softballperformance#homerun#linedrive#swinganalysis#hittingmechanics#hittingcoach#hittingdrills#strength#power#training#strengthtraining#strengthandconditioning#athlete#athleticperformance
Father I pray for everyone on this Facebook and my Instagram. I pray Lord that you continue to pull them closer. Please make yourself real to them in your special way. Please heal the hurt, doubt and fear in their hearts that keeps them away from you. Silence the enemy in their lives so they can feel your grace and love. Please convict their hearts in the areas of their lives you are working on. Help them wake up spiritually. Please open their eyes and ears to see. If they have children help them lead their children to you. Show them the ways the enemy is trying to sneak in and help them shut it down. If anyone is being attacked in their health or finances, please hold them close and help them. Lord there was a time I lived in darkness unaware of how real you are. There was a time I didn't have urgency to follow you. I was more caught up with the cares of the world, money, and fashion. I was addicted to shopping because it took my focus off my problems. There was a time I depended on alcohol and weed to calm me. I also lived in fornication for 15 years. But then in my darkest hour I called out to you for help. You showed me how real you are. You took the urge to drink and smoke away. You helped me be content with less material things. You showed me the people around me that needed help. Slowly the focus I had on me and my looks and material things shifted to help others in need. The more I prayed I noticed you washed me in a pure peace I didn't have to buy, drink or smoke to get. You started waking me up and pulling me closer. The more I seeked the more I found just like you promise. You showed me that living in fornication was not your will and it needed to stop. You helped us get married in a simple beautiful way using your people! I ask you Lord to please do the same for those here. You know what they need. I know you will in your perfect timing. Thank you for all you do and please continue to use me to lead others to your kingdom. In Jesus name Amen #pray#instapray#hope#faith#prayer#prayerchangesthings#change#transformation#beforeandafter#strength#strengthtraining#fit#letsgo#motivation#success#saturday#rest#snow#winter#nature#outdoors#spiritual#Father#Lord
My heaven on earth. 🌎
I’ve shed so many tears within the last 3 years.
Your birth was traumatic, your diagnosis was traumatic, our hospital experiences are traumatic but you, you are beautiful despite these trials we face.
If I could do it all over again (sure I’d take away your pain) but I would NEVER change the little boy that you are.
Of course as your mama I wish I could allow you to have the same abilities as others but then again the way you were made is more than enough.
Even when I feel like I’m sinking in a hole I’ll never be able to escape I then look at you and realize there’s nothing to ever complain about, there’s nothing to ever question.
You are a miracle. You are a blessing. You are a gift. You are perfect. Your brain is still perfect. Your heart is still perfect. Your smile is contagious, your love is overflowing.
You changed me. You shaped me into someone I never thought was possible.
Before you, I couldn’t look children or adults eye to eye if they had a disability, or if they were known to be different - I was too scared, I put my head down.
Now when I enter a room the first thing I notice is a child wearing AFO’s - men and women in their power chairs, innocent Beautiful children in their gate trainers. I notice them first, I want them to know I see them, I want them to know they are beautiful, I want them to know that I am interested in them. I want them to know they are noticed, valued, accepted, and loved. I want them to know they have a friend in me.
You Ryder Ford you changed my heart, you have given me so much in 3 years that I could have never imagined. It is MY JOB to give you every inch of me. You will always have me by your side, day and night, I will learn every inch of your body and be proud and honored to take care of you. I do this because I love you so much, not because I have to. You are my everything and I will be crying non stop because I don’t want you to turn 3 on Monday. I want to relive the day you made me a mommy. 🙏🏼
Thank you for laughing with me this morning. You are truly my absolute everything! 💚

BENEFITS OF AN ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER
Making the decision to make a change in your life is not easy and that's just first step. Then you have to actually have to make the change. We could all use someone to have our back as we go through the process. Here are the benefits of having an accountability partner.
BIGGEST MOTIVATORS: as you make a change one of the biggest things to overcome is inertia. There's inertia at each step of the change process. Your accountability partner will help you to push through that inertia and let you know you got this.
SUPPORT SYSTEM: your partner will also help you figure out all the logistics. They'll help you to figure out not only what he exact steps are but how/what you'll need to do to take them.
YOUR PROTECTOR: your partner will be there when life inevitably tries to keep you from being successful. When your "friends" are trying to get you to make bad decisions, it'll be your accountability partner who tells them to back off.
CALL YOU OUT: your partner will also protect you from yourself. Again there will inevitably be times when you're going to self sabotage. You'll come up with lame excuses for why you can't do 'XYZ'. It's your accountability partner's job to call bullshit.
SHOUT OUT YOUR WINS: along with calling your BS, your partner will call out your success. For you it'll be hard to see all the progress you're making because you're too close to it. Your partner will be the one who'll point out that you haven't had any slip ups in a week or all the visible changes they see.
So get you a reliable accountability partner. I actually suggest a team of accountability partners. You want a partner in all the places where you spend the majority of your time. For most people that will be a family member/spouse, a co-worker and then a good friend.

The best part about living a healthy + balanced lifestyle is you don’t need a break from it 👌🏼🧚🏼♀️
I have my highs & lows, but never any extremes, restrictions, rebounds.. We fluctuate naturally, in terms of weight, composition, activity, motivation, LIFE, so many things. It’s too easy to get caught up in trying to completely control it all, but one of the BEST things I ever learned was to LET GO
Let go of the need for numbers, let go of the obsession & worry, let go of the need to compensate because you ‘ate too much’ or had some extra treats. Let go of the need to take up less space or fit into society’s ridiculous standards. To look like her. No more punishment, no more anxiety, no more regret around food
But instead, more love, more mindfulness, forgiveness, nourishment.. An amazing thing happens when you let go & turn your attention to you wellbeing, not what you believe you ‘should’ do 🙌🏼💛 It falls into place effortlessly
Sound too good to be true? When I let go everything fell into place for me & I’ve maintained a healthy + balanced lifestyle for over 5 years now 🌸 I’ve had many obstacles thrown my way but I have an underlying knowing that it’ll come back into equilibrium. It’s not perfect & it’s not supposed to be
When you realize you are enough right now your outer world mirrors the inner. Inner peace is so #goals & helps you reach all of your goals more easily 😊💫

Naked Squats! Currently only 3 weeks out now and the body is feel good but beat up, which is normal this deep into meet prep. The key is making sure you have proper recovery days so fatigue doesn’t get TOO high (fatigue is not a bad thing, though).
Implementing “naked” squats (beltless/sleeveless or even just sleeveless) can be useful on a tertiary/recovery day at the end of the week in order to reduce over all objective load but still keeping moderate intensity (although recovery days the intensity/exertion is never high).
These days are super important (no matter what variation of exercise you choose for yourself) because it allows you to get in more volume while moving through specific movements, allows you to work on technique, and gets you “prepped” for your next heavy day. Most times these days feel hard both mentally and physically but I usually leave feeling really good and healthy (as healthy as a powerlifter can feel).
::: HALO SPORT GIVEAWAY :::
For the first time ever, you have a chance to WIN one of these bad boys from @haloneuroscience! I've been using the #HaloSport headset, a special neurostimulation headset for 2 years now to acquire skills faster (for me, mostly to improve playing the harmonica) and to push myself way harder during a #workout than I normally could.
See, this headset stimulates motor neurons via #tCDS (transcranial direct current stimulation) so you can learn more quickly, and also has the effect of decreasing your perceived exertion so you can train longer before "hitting a wall."
tDCS puts your brain’s motor cortex into a temporary state of #hyperplasticity, or hyperlearning called neurorpiming. By wearing Halo Sport during your #warmup, each training repetition more rapidly develops power, skill, and #endurance. #Triathletes and #cyclists swear by this baby.
TO WIN >> simply leave a comment on this post describing how YOU want to use the Halo Sport!
By the way. If you're in need of fresh workout ideas, you're in luck as this week I published 23 #hardcoreworkout ideas...ideas that YOU all have told me about! Check them out from the link in my bio and go crush it.
Afraid you may not win but are eager to try the Halo Sport headset now? You can still buy it & save money. Just head to my bio links tap Halo Sport and a code will be auto-magically applied at checkout so you can save a few bucks.
