Taking Risks





Putting yourself out there is no small feat and takes courage.  People will ultimately judge you!  Every action we take someone will have an opinion about it.  You have to decide how important your message is and what you are wanting to express to the world.  By the same token, you must understand that there will always be at least one negative person trying to rain on your parade.  People have different opinions and everyone is entitled to theirs.  If you are worried about pleasing everyone all the time then you've lost connection to your message.   Stay focused on those that you have influenced in a positive way.  Receiving positive reinforcement is wonderful, but the true fire of why you will continue to show up, lies within you.  Getting a pat on the back is not why I continue to share information.  When I physically see a person's life change because they trusted me, that is enough validation for me.  Will each risk reap the same reward?  Definitely not.  If you are putting out a good message or sharing your passion (whatever that may be) chances are you are helping someone out there.   

Of course getting regular emails such as the one below doesn't hurt and keeps the fire burning higher.

I totally agree with you. Without taking risks there are no rewards! You gotta work hard and be willing to put in the time to achieve your goals! After giving myself the confidence I need I am now more successful. Also, I love your kettle bell workouts. They have helped with my lower back and legs. (it was really weak before.)

I totally agree. Dealing with cynics and rejection can be tough. You always need to watch your external language. That voice inside you that says you can't do something. Cynics fuel the fire for that voice. Control the voice and nothing is impossible.

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me.

WELCOME!

First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today!

Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core again.  I d…

Let's Talk About Butts (Butt "on" Workouts)

To lift or not to lift, that is the question.  Despite the popular sayings, "Strong is the new Skinny" or "Strong is the New Sexy," there is still a large portion of the female population that will shy away from lifting solely due to their fear of bulking up or building too much muscle.  I'm not going to tell you that heavy weights won't help build muscle and I'm not going to deny the fact that some women can build muscle easier than others.  


Let's start with the photo below.  This is a nice example of the female backside that shows two different body types.  The woman on the left falls in the category of an ectomorph, which generally means skinny, little muscle, and a very high metabolism.  She could probably eat what she wants and stay skinny.  If she committed to a butt strengthening and enhancing program, filled with exercises such as squats, deadlifts, and kettlebell swings, developing the butt on the right would still be unlikely.  Through h…

Why Squat? Squats are one of the most beneficial exercises to practice. I could sit here and tell you how squatting makes you stronger, more conditioned, firms your legs and butt, improves digestion, increases energy and mood, but I'm sure you know the endless amount of benefits. A few people who've participated in the past squat challenges chose to share their experiences which I've shared below.

 So let's just get to squatting! Beginners are welcomed! Join our Challenge Today here and read the easy rules below!
