Yesterday was a grind. Even though it was the fastest race I've run, it was in some ways the most difficult. . . I came in wanting to win my division, which meant trying to compete with more experienced athletes. When it became obvious that I wasn't going to beat the winner (I took second) it became a mental game. I was feeling defeated. I wanted to let up and cruise to the finish. I wanted to just walk for a while - until I remembered why I do this. . . . I do things like this because people with #hEDS are told we "can't" do things, or we "won't" do them again, or we "shouldn't". We're told by doctors and physios and our scared families. And it's so hard to believe you'll never be able to do something you want to do. Once I remembered all the times I've been told I "won't", I remembered that I'm already winning. I'm winning because I didn't believe them. . . . Whatever your personal Everest is: don't give up. Keep fighting. Keep healing. Set a goal and work. You've got this. And I believe in you. . . . #EhlersDanlosSyndromes #iamnotmyillness #sprinttri #hudsoncrossing #hudsoncrossingtriathlon #HYPERMOBILITYeds #athlete #trainerlife #teameqx #teamgw
It's important to look back. So you can see your progress. So you understand your process. So you can check in on what you've learned. . . A year ago I was preparing to go to Thailand to study with @luna_alignment_yoga and @talswissa - I had no idea what I was in for. All I knew was I was called to go. At the time I felt so broken and exhausted. I couldn't have guessed the great adventure that was waiting for me... yes, the trip, but also the deep exploration of myself! . . This is one of my favorite selfies, taken the last morning there. My cat had died overnight (4 days before I could make it home), I'd been crying for days, I'd barely slept, but I also felt stronger than I ever have before! Every time I see this picture I'm reminded of my own beauty and resiliency. Even though my heart hurt. Even though I was so tired, I KNEW it was all going to be ok. . .

In fad diets and infomercials about "personal improvement" I see claims all the time about "the secret" to weight loss, success, and happiness. . . Want to know the REAL "secrets"? There are 2, and I'll give them to you for free: . 1) believe change is possible. If you've been telling yourself the same old story all along (that you aren't good enough, that diets don't work, that you're unattractive, whatever!) Guess what? You're right! Because you're building your reality. But if you change what you believe - and I mean REALLY change it, not just platitudes and bullshit, then your actions will change with you. . . 2) Consistency is what counts. When clients and students try to tell me that something doesn't work, 9 times out of 10 it's because they were inconsistent. That inconsistency comes from misalignment beliefs that we then work on together. (The other time is typically a deeper problem one or both of us didn't realize exhibited yet.) . . . Moral of the story: examine your beliefs and change your mindset to change your life! I believe in you. . Questions? Post them in the comments. . With me?

Whether you woke up feeling like a rock star, or you feel like this morning was forged in hell, I'm here to tell you: you've got this! . . . I've spent the last year partly absent from Insta because I felt like I had nothing worth posting. I was struggling- with fatigue, with burn out, with my self image. Some of it I'm still working on; but one of the most important things of learned is that we each make our own reality. The stories I tell myself about myself build my actions and therefore my future. . . . If you woke up struggling today, it's time to rewrite the script! You're beautiful. You've got this. Take 5 deep breaths, release the bullshit, and start building some wins for yourself. . . I believe in you. . #mondaymotivation #naturalbeauty #mm #loveyourmug #realtalk
