This must read story might just change your life. Don't skim it!
Two lumberjacks are out in the woods chopping wood. They have a strict quota to meet at the end of the day, so it's going to be a super busy one.
Hustles like a crazy person all day. He doesn't take any breaks because he knows meeting this deadline is almost impossible. So he figures the longer and harder he works, the more wood he will have chopped by the end of the day!
Takes a break every 10 minutes and disappears into the unknown. Lumberjack #1 is wondering where he is going and how he is going to meet the deadline if he keeps disappearing.
At the end of the day, they count how much wood they have chopped
Lumberjack #1: 80
Lumberjack #2: 90
Lumberjack #1 is PISSED.
"How the hell did he chop more wood then I did?"
So he asks him, "Hey, can I just ask you, what the hell you where doing when you where taking all those breaks? I just don't understand how you beat me!"
I had an incredibly rejuvenating weekend with my boyfriend and friends... BUT I have some SERIOUSLY funny things I want to chat about...
On Saturday night, I had a nightmare...
but not just any nightmare.
It was a nightmare of a spider FLINGING itself directly at my face in the middle of the night. It felt SO real that I sat up SCREAMING in the middle of the nigh, and in my sleep, I ran out of the room panicking.
I woke up scared and confused in the living room. But as I calmed down, I realized it was just a dream.
The funniest part of this all is that my boyfriend was totally freaked the fuck out and HE started screaming with me and trying to help me calm down in my sleep. He told me I pounced out of the bed to my hands and knees and crawled (Exorcist style) into the living room.
Has this ever happened to you?! We are both laughing about it now but... holy shit did it scare us both!
Can someone PLEASE clarify this debate for me:
Is it a garbage pail or a trash can? Or is it just a...
"Some of the best things in life don’t look so hot at the beginning.
It’s cool to pick something up fast, but have you ever experienced the feeling of sucking out of the gates? Then working hard, consistently, humbly…and celebrating the whole messy, wonderful process?
I was on a mission to get my first pull-up a few years back, and I can tell you that EVEN NOW—years after I got one, then 5, then 10–every single trip above the bar is so much sweeter bc of the sweat I had to put in to get here.
Apply to life! You’ve got this. Shoutout to my friend @angela_gargano for the coaching, support and belief in me getting pull-up number one back in 2019!"

How REAL is this message
I've had the opportunity to work with HUNDREDS of women around the world to help them conquer their pull-up and FOUR things are certain.
I stayed in a pineapple house…
And no, it wasn't Spongebob's house under the sea… but that would have been cool
This was a cute little hidden spot in Wimberly, Texas. There was a pineapple sign and path that lead to a cabin with limited service and no wifi.
EVERYTHING in the house was pineapple themed… from the spoons, the pillows, the curtains... she even had a magnet on the fridge that was pineapple!
The pineapple is an international sign of welcome! And from what I learned, an UPSIDE DOWN pineapple is a sign of... swinging</>... and yes the swinging you are thinking about
Getting away was super nice and for me what I discovered about myself is that I matter. Ithink I always put EVERYTHING else before my needs and I always have.
While that is a great quality to have, I have to remind myself that I need to take care of myself more... JUST like I tell all of my clients. I need to tell myself hat I am enough, I am deserving and my needs even if they...
I’m getting in my own way... and maybe are have too?
You know you should be...
...but you just aren’t doing any of it ... even though you know that if you actually do these things you will live better and have a happier life.
So why DON’T we JUST DO IT ALREADY? What are we waiting for?
Why is it so hard to just do the "right” thing?
As I was on a walk the other day I thought to myself, "it’s gotta be a few things..."
Let’s talk today about ALL things hanging and American Ninja Warrior!
Last week I competed on American Ninja Warrior for my 5th TIME! I am now 32 years old and I am still in shocked that my body is able to still “ninja,” and that I was asked to come back to complete again. When I turned 30, I was anticipating my athletic career being over, and while things have definitely changed in my body and I do have to workout a bit differently and recover more, I actually feel stronger and smarter in my training than I ever have!
But before we get into the deets of American Ninja Warrior, I wanted to talk about how me and thousands of other people completed 30 Days of Hanging!
Improved grip strength, which is directly related to measuring your OVERALL health! So by improving grip strength, you will essentially live longer (you're welcome)
It decompresses the spine and can help reduce back pain if you have any...
It's been quite the weekend! Since January, I have been planning for my very first Strong Feels Good Retreat here in Austin, Texas!
I have never hosted a retreat before BUT I have been to a few that have truly changed my life. And that was my goal.. .to change each of the ladies lives by the end of the 4 Days.
So after countless day and hours of prepping, creating the schedule, getting goodies it was time to do the damn thing!
Thursday: The ladies arrived one by one! Most of them I have NEVER met in real life only through zoom for the past 3 years! So it was epic to meet them face to face! For Maria from Luxembourg, this was even her FIRST time in America! We started off with some healthy lunch, a quick off the plane workout and then a Sound Bowl Experience from my friend Mae!
Friday: My amazing friend Bea lead the ladies through a BreathWork Experience which is a great way to open up the mind, release emotions and dive deep into what each...
On Friday, my boyfriend and I had dinner and then we took the night to just paint!
Then the next morning we went to Sauna and Ice and went to a really cool farm.
Sunday I hosted a FREE Pull-up Workshop! And Had SUCH an awesome group, I went through my three step method that has helped SOO many women conquer their first pull-up! If you want to watch the replay you can check it out here!
After the workshop, I felt like my brain was broken though haha…I started to get super frustrated because I wanted to be productive but my mind was like… No girl… you cannot do things today!
So I caught up with some of my favorite Netflix/Prime Show! Let me know if you like any of these!
-YOU <—I mean this was insane haha this season was SOOO good! I don’t want to spoil it for you if you haven’t seen
-Daisy and the Six’s <—I loved loved this series and I hope they do more! But it’s about a band and all their drama
Hate to break it to ya… you’re not gonna be your best every day, and that’s okay!
I’ve had a lot of clients getting down of themselves for NOT hitting their personal best each week.
I GET how frustrating that can be, especially when you HAVE been showing up each day and putting in the work!
A few things I want you to consider BEFORE beating yourself up too much:
Power Point Night
This weekend I got a bunch of my friends together to do something called “Powerpoint Night." Each person makes a funny presentation on literally ANYTHING.
A few people messaged me asking if it was a “public speaking” class or group. No… just me and a bunch of friends making a presentation so that we can all cry laugh and take life a little less seriously for a moment. I think we could all use that right?
It was a good time, and I am grateful that this group was down to get super weird with me because I am definitely a weird person.
The next day, I spoke at event and did my What If It All Goes Right? mindset talk. Ironically the screen wouldn’t work so I had to do the presentation with my laptop on a chair but I guess it was perfect example of, what if it all goes right EVEN...
