Today I wanted to share 7 Books that are EASILY Digestible and changed my life....
First I want to start off by saying that I am a SLOW reader and I always have been. For the longest time, I was embarrassed by this. I had friends cranking through a few books a week and I just could NOT keep up.
I decided to give myself permission to read as SLOW, as I want so I can really understand and absorb each book.
These books were all EASY to read, digestible, and I was able to actually take action after them, which is something I feel like is super important.
You can READ get all the advice you want but it's important to actually implement it.
Also I visited the Ryan Holiday Book Store this weekend! It was so damn cute, located in a small town, and he had notes on certain books that explained why he loved them so much! And it inspired me to make this
I WILL be reading this multiple times. It's a great book on self sabotage it gives you reasons for WHY you feel...
Happy Halloween, Crew!
Most of you are aware of this, but Halloween is literally my favorite holiday. I love the idea of dressing up and not being so serious for a full week (yes, I celebrate all week).
This week I was:
As much as I LOVE Halloween, to be honest, historically, October hasn't been the best month for me. It always seems to be filled with drama, breakups, deaths, moving...
You ever have that month that you are kinda holding on and just waiting for something bad to happen because, well, it always does. That's this month for me. What's interesting is that things actually were going good, but my body was FILLED with anxiety, anticipating the worst.
Last year, despite IG pictures that seemed happy, I felt super alone, was going through a breakup, and I was struggling to find my place when I was living in Colorado.
Yes... you heard that right. I was sitting outside at a cafe, minding my own business, doing some work and all of the sudden I felt a drip drip on my head and shirt.
I looked up, and there was literally just ONE bird sitting on a ledge above my head. He KNEW what he was doing.
I posted about this and so many people messaged me saying, "it's good luck" and this got me thinking. Why? Why is it good luck?
What if it is just making light of a seemingly bad situation?
If we can say that good luck comes for a bird pooping on your head, why not take that same perspective when other bad things happen in life?
"The primary reason that many cultures believe that it's good luck to have a bird poop on you, is because the chance of this happening is fairly rare. In fact, it's about as rare as a win in the lottery. Therefore, many people who get pooped on, immediately go and buy a lottery ticket.
It has been calculated that in the USA, the chance of getting pooped on...
I have really been enjoying working closely with a select group of women. I am super proud of my client, Aimee. After not working out in awhile, we got her back in the grove of hitting 5 workouts a week, starting back to the basics, mastering them, getting decent schedule down.
She was ON A ROLL… until well, life happened. Her cat went missing, and she finally found him, (I can relate this so much since I used to have an outdoor cat.)
Because of this, her schedule got a bit messed up. She wasn’t able to get her workout in early like she had wanted. Instead of beating herself up about it and stressing, she simply just moved her workout to a different time that day, from the normal 7am to 1:30pm.
Not only did she make the time, she also realize how damn good it felt to take her mind off all the stress and get movement in.
It’s in this moment as I read her messages and schedule her workouts for next week that you can SEE exactly why movement isn’t just about...
“I needed somebody who has a plan that could give me structure that I could look at and be consistent with.”
I’m super excited to be celebrating Becky today! I met her at a convention in Seattle and she had expressed interest in getting a pull-up so I invited her to join my Pull-Up Revolution program. In 30 days, she went from 0-2 unassisted pull-ups through the Pull-Up Revolution program!
Dr. Becky Rucker is a physical therapist and owner of Physio Movement Performance, but she had always wanted to learn a pull-up. For so long, she was just doing pull-ups with a band, but what she realized through the program is that a pull-up is not just an upper-body exercise… it is a FULL BODY movement. It’s your shoulders, your core, your glutes, you name it. Bands are great for feeling the movement of the pull-up, but they don’t do much for you to learn how to do your pull-up without you.
Becky loved the structured plan of the program...
