WZA week is here!
To answer a lot of questions I have been getting, I am NOT competing this year.
Although I’m sure I will be having FOMO, I decided to sit out this year for a few reasons. Mostly with the changes to the season, I want to stay committed to my training and focus on the ultimate goal.
Competitions are hard on the body and mind and both of mine are in a great place right now so I’m excited to keep riding that momentum all the way through the Open!
Good luck to all of my friends competing, and I will definitely be hanging around the event!
It will be my first time as a Wodapalooza spectator since the first time I ever witnessed competitive CF back in 2013!!
Who am I going to see there?!?
Posso te contar mais uma derrota? rs. Sim, quanto mais se viaja, mais derrotas se acumulam. Em Zadar não foi diferente. Chegamos à cidade durante um tour pela Croácia para conhecer o "Órgão do Mar", uma estrutura arquitetônica que funciona como instrumento musical, em que o artista que o toca é o próprio mar. As ondas do mar criam sons ao passarem por tubos subterrâneos, que se assemelham à suaves melodias. Os relatos são de sons incríveis, mas nos dias em que estivemos por lá não ouvimos absolutamente nada 😰. Faz parte né? Por outro lado, todos os dias fomos recompensados pelo por do sol, que por si só, já era um espetáculo!
Que possamos sempre enxergar o lado bom das coisas. 😊
Can I tell you another defeat? Yes, the more one travels, the more losses they accumulate. In Zadar it was no different. We came to the city during a tour of Croatia to meet the "Organ of the Sea", an architectural structure that functions as a musical instrument, in which the artist who touches it is the sea itself. The waves of the sea create sounds as they pass through subterranean pipes, which resemble soft melodies. The reports are incredible sounds, but on the days we were there we didn't hear anything at all. That's ok. On the other hand, every day we were rewarded by the sunset, which by itself was already a spectacle!
May we always see the good side of things
I am definitely trying to do this. My workout got done today even though I had to go down in weight because my sleep schedule has been a fuckin mess. I’m eating what I like, even if it seems boring to some. One thing about me, I’m a very picky eater. There’s not much I like. So when you see me eating the same foods, its not being forced on me, these are the foods I love. I could honestly eat chicken every single day and be ok with it, same with my carrots, cucumbers and red bell peppers (not pictures because I’m all out). Maybe to some, it can get boring but my choices are limited but I definitely enjoy the choices I have.
A pesar de que las adversidades, los tropiezos, las vicisitudes y los cambios repentinos sean mas prominentes en este periodo de cambio... Celebremos esos cambios que a la larga nos traen a todos por igual enseñanzas de vida que no debemos cambiar por nada. .
Como dicen nuestros abuelos, las cosas pasan por algo. Se que se escucha cliche pero es cierto.
Leo a tantos amigos y conocidos publicar solo momentos negativos de su vida como si fuera lo mas importante y como si se fuera a caer el mundo.
Pana... Esos momentos solo dejalos ir. Si en tu vida hay mas momentos negativos que positivos, anulalos de tu mente y disfruta esos pequeños, pero no por eso menos importantes, momentos felices. .
Y no... No hice CRP, CPR, LIDERES ni nada de eso que te enseñan a entender lo que ya existe en tu interior. .
❗️Do the things that make you happy, not what is going to please someone else.❗️
One of the biggest things I’ve learned in the past few months is to not stop doing things that I want to do just because someone else doesn’t like it. This goes for letting our true personalities and quirks shine through, too.
Between being a people pleaser and struggling with self-confidence, I’ve become accustomed to asking for other people’s approval on something I want to do. A hair cut, a new piece of clothing, shoes, my make up... I would always ask my husband for his approval. I’d ask friends or family for theirs. It’s not like they ever told me I needed their approval or made me feel that way, but I felt the need for it.
Of course it’s ok to ask people for opinions, but if you really truly want to do something, but don’t do it because of someone else’s opinion...well, that can be problematic. If we are always seeking others’ approval, we will never be happy.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stopped myself from doing something because I didn’t think others would want me to... and I just want to say how truly freeing and empowering it is to do it anyways just because I want to.
So I challenge you to do things for YOURSELF, even if you don’t think someone else will approve of your new look or clothes. Be YOU. Do what makes YOU happy. ❤️💁🏻♀️ I promise, they’ll still love you even if they don’t like your hair or clothes. If they don’t... Honestly, no one needs that negativity. 😉
Love should have no limits. It should be unconditional, like God’s love is for us. It doesn’t matter if you’re a total dork, you cut your hair, or you wear a fun new item of clothing.
🙏🏻 Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

@shaunt had to grab my inhaler but shiiiit day 2 is DONE.
"Confidence is so much more than thinking you're beautiful. It's being free in who you are, bold in your decisions, trusting yourself to commit to what you want, stepping out your comfort zone, assuring yourself you will be ok." - @bossbabe.inc
I'm still learning to have this kind of confidence. I've been working on myself this year and it's really a challenging process.. buuuut😅 I'm proud of how far I've come. Still not as confident as I would like to be but I'm working on it. I'm getting there 💪🏽
