"Shared joy is double joy. Shared sorrow is half sorrow." Got this beautiful piece by the hilarious and beautiful killer babe, @c.reneeallday at @reddaggertattoo yesterday. The cost went directly to families effected by hurricane Harvey. That was one of the best times I've ever had at a shop, and this tattoo completely sums up the aching I have in my heart for my hometown, my new home in the city, and all my friends and family who have to now start their lives over. We are in this time of trial together - trust God, He loves you and will provide for you. #hurricaneharvey #harveyrelief #houstontattoo #killerbabeclub #jcluforever

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

5k after the WOD today. Found some more good music (Kreayshawn/MIA), and got a chance to listen through some new albums. Life has been strange, and at times hectic, but we're pushing through. I like being able to look back and say I didn't get worse, I only improved. #theanimalfreeanimal #killerbabeclub #run #cardio #crossfit #crossfitrxd #plantbased #plantbasedpower #plantbasedmuscle #meatfreeathlete #nomeatathlete #hardcoreherbivore #happyherbivore #vegansofig #veganfitness #veganprotein #iifym #fitfam #fattofit #cfthunderdome

Someone spooks up nice. Pouring one out for my killer babes who can lift heavy (even for a girl omg 😱) by day and creep it up by night, and for the men (forgot how to spell boys 🤷🏻‍♀️) who are threatened by them. #creepinitreal #killerbabeclub #boysdocry #theanimalfreeanimal #iwillcrushyouwithmyhairythighs
