Right after today's partner WOD. Two movements today have been weight on my shoulders - 20" box jumps (since I fell a couple months ago, and it felt like my leg was ripped off), and rope climbs (which I've put off practicing for years because I'm afraid of heights). Although I did 16" jumps today, I tried working on getting on the rope. It was minimal, mostly because my movements are poop (I'm new at it!), but trying is better than nothing. We got a significantly lower amount of rounds than everyone else, but what matters is that we worked as hard as we could. Then we ran a mile. It's hard to be neutral about not being proficient at every movement/weight/height/time, but working to become proficient in all those aspects is what matters. Work and discipline to continuing working, even though your ego is bruised because you feel like a potato around a bunch of lulu models. I'm just glad we can gas each other up when we feel like we've reached our breaking point in a WOD.

Just finished #wod4wheels last weekend with my incredible partner @shelby_j2012. The whole day was amazing, and seeing @cfthunderdome support adaptive athletes so passionately was so heart warming. These athletes put in their all and it's inspiring, and the true spirit of crossfit. Lately I've been happy with the progress I've made in the box - handstands, pull ups, PR's, RXing essentially every WOD. Food, however has been my vice. I haven't consistently counted macros in weeks, and I feel it. It's time to grab my discipline by the throat and get some real work done. Today I bumped up my protein to 150g and I'm psyched to see what will happen. I'm always nervous about adjusting my macro count, but I know when I count consistently things happen. My bff and cf partner Amanda (Warrior Princess) and I have big goals. We've been working so hard, and it's awesome to finally have a workout babe that wants to put in work. She has given me the gas needed to keep grinding to my ridiculous goals that seem unreachable at times. Stay tuned. 🎶Just can't worry about no haters gotta stay on my grind🎶 #vegansofig #veganfitness #veganprotein #plantbased #plantbasedpower #plantbasedmuscle #meatfreeathlete #nomeatathlete #notyourbabe #fitfam #fattofit #iifym #macros #hardcoreherbivore #happyherbivore #thickthighs #girlswholift #crossfitrxd #creepinitreal #crossfit #allgirlliftingteam #effyourbeautystandards #poweredbyplants #plantbased #girlsofcrossfit #killerbabeclub

Been saving these shorts until I finally felt comfortable showing my pasty tree-trunk thighs, but this morning I woke up and was too tired to care. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Got a pretty good tan this weekend on the Guadalupe, so I decided today was the day. I got a little nervous heading to the box, but it turns out no one cares about how my legs look. Who woulda thunk? Still grinding out these WODs, trying to perfect my macro-tracking habits, and trying to move up to RX+ weight whenever I can. Cheers to the grind, my dudes! 😘💪🏼#whatveganslooklike #iifym #killerbabeclub #creepinitreal #macros #plantbased #plantbasedpower #plantbasedmuscle #meatfreeathlete #notyourbabe #nomeatathlete #hardcoreherbivore #happyherbivore #crossfitrxd #crossfit #girlgang #girlsofcrossfit #fattofit #theanimalfreeanimal #daretowear #wod #pizzapower #allgirlliftingteam #fitfam #cardio #vegan #vegansofig #veganprotein #veganpizzagang #veganfitness

Today. How long have I been terrified of doing handstands? How long have I practiced alone, and failed every time? And today we pulverized it together. You are my #wcw and I have no words for how excited and thankful I am that God brought you in to my life when He did. You killed your fears, and it gave me the courage to do the same. We may be on different parts of our Crossfit journeys, but we're demolishing our goals together. Can't hear haters blasé blasé 💁🏻👯😘#killerbabeclub #girlgang #girlsofcrossfit #wildwomansisterhood #crossfitrxd #theanimalfreeanimal #plantbasedpower #plussizemermaid #plantbasedmuscle #meatfreeathlete #notyourbabe #nomeatathlete #hardcoreherbivore #happyherbivore #fitfam #flexinonthem #allgirlliftingteam #crossfit #veganprotein #veganpizzagang #macros

Ya girl needed to focus on discipline with running, WODs, and macros, so I teamed up with this killer cutie and committed to 8 solid weeks of focused work. We're halfway through week 1, and it's already awesome. We're going to crush these goals, and look cute while doing it. 🎶If y'all was mad before I bet you hate me for this new ish🎶 #theanimalfreeanimal #fitfam #crossfit #crossfitrxd #run #macros #cardio #hardcoreherbivore #happyherbivore #vegansofig #veganfitness #veganprotein #iifym #girlsofcrossfit #killerbabeclub #allgirlliftingteam

If you know me, you know I make friends easily. However a small handful only know the real me. I am so blessed to call this lady a friend. She's mentored me in the gym, in life, and although I've only known her a few years, I've been honored to call her family. Happy birthday bosslady! I hope you have an amazing day! Only getting better with age! I love you!! 💙 #wildwomansisterhood #bosslady #bestfriend #crossfitfamily #allgirlliftingteam here's to many more years of wild dancing, moon gazing, and big dreams!!!
