People need to work on what self-love is and redefining self-love... it comes from within: who you are and how you carry yourself in this world.
Happy birthday @qcumbermelon_ !!! My baby is 25 and we've been besties since we were 8 😭😭😭. Forever proud of who you are and who you will become. Love you always 💞
Te quiero no solo por como eres, sino por como soy yo cuando estoy contigo.
Happy adoption day to my princess. It's been 2 years and I am so incredibly lucky to have a girl like you. Love you the most 💞
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. -Lao Tzu
What is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare. No time to stand beneath the boughs And stare as long as sheep or cows. No time to see, when woods we pass, Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass. No time to see, in broad daylight, Streams full of stars, like skies at night. No time to turn at Beauty’s glance, And watch her feet, how they can dance. No time to wait till her mouth can Enrich that smile her eyes began. A poor life this if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare.

A few weeks ago I hit a huge milestone in my fitness journey. I have been trying to pull 225 lbs for months now. @issak_13 and I went to the gym and I was doing some reps of 185. Normally i do about 4 reps but that day I did 6 and it felt easy. I told him I think I'm going to go for the 225, and this time I actually felt like I could pull it. The first time I pulled it I overcame a huge mental barrier. I know physically I have had the capacity to pull the weight but I've always psyched myself out. Not only did I pull it the first time I did it a second time for this video. I can feel myself getting stronger and I can finally push my self farther now that I have a spotter. Next my goal is 250. Let's get it. Also the video was slowed down slightly for dramatic purposes only lol.
Next week I turn the big 25... never too early to start looking more youthful 🙃

The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.
Happiness, not in another place but this place…not for another hour, but this hour
Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

I've been an intern for 5 weeks now. I am now able to conduct a full treatment by myself after my treatment is approved by my supervisor. Words cannot explain how happy I am being able to be treating and helping those who come into clinic. I always knew I wanted to be in the healthcare field, but for a while I felt lost and unsure how I was going to help those around me. I am so thankful I found acupuncture, and that it found me. I have been able to help with anxiety ,numbness, musculoskeletal disorders, acid reflex, insomnia, digestive problems, dizziness, fatigue and so much more. I love what I do and I love that every day I learn something new and grow as a person and a future practitioner. Never give up on your dreams. Don't be discouraged if you feel lost, life always has a way of working itself out.
Gua sha is the practice of using a tool to apply pressure and scrape the skin to relieve pain and tension. This action causes light bruising, which often appears as purple or red spots known as petechiae or sha. ◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾ Gua sha is most often used to relieve muscle and joint pain. Conditions of the muscles and bones are known as musculoskeletal disorders, including back pain, tendon strain, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Gua sha can also benefit the immune system and reduce inflammation. Gua sha can also be used to treat cold, fever, or problems with the lungs. ◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾ Women found that perimenopause symptoms, such as sweating, insomnia, and headaches, were reduced after gua sha. ◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾ A 2014 study found that gua sha improved the range of movement and reduced pain in people who used computers frequently compared with a control group that had no treatment. In a 2017 study, weightlifters who had gua sha felt that lifting weights took less effort after treatment. This could suggest that the treatment speeds up muscle recovery. Older adults with back pain were treated with either gua sha or a hot pack. Both treatments relieved symptoms equally well, but the effects of gua sha lasted longer.
This self-love is the instrument of our preservation; it resembles the provision for the perpetuity of mankind: it is necessary, it is dear to us, it gives us pleasure, and we must conceal it. -Voltaire

I have officially been on break for a week and it feels amazing. Needed this down time to recharge and get remotivated for school. ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ I've been doing front squats for so long when I tried back squatting again I literally felt like it was my first time. Part of the reasons I like front squats better is because I can hit the "ass to grass" depth, whereas in conventional squats its alot harder for me so I can't squat as deep. Trying to balance everything out and work on more balance training and core strengthening exercises. ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ #fitness #fitfam #girlswholift #grind #nodaysoff #health #wellness #fit #gymlife #fitness #fitchick #motivation #legday #core #weights #movement #stability #beastmode #balance #strengthtraining #squat #booty #student #gradschool #exercise #grind #bosuball
This week is finals week. 5 finals and 1 paper separates me from 3 weeks of finally being able to enjoy summer. Mentally, physically, emotionally I am beyond tired but I tell myself everyday I'm stronger than I believe I am. I was going to put off the gym today and take a nap, but the gym always comes through and gives me the energy and motivation I need. 3 more days. Lordt be with me and the rest of my acu fam. ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ #fitness #fitfam #girlswholift #grind #nodays #health #wellness #fit #gymlife #fitness #fitchick #motivation #legday #deadlift #core #weights #movement #stability #beastmode #balance #strengthtraining #Apashe #bosuball #kettlebell #squat #booty #student #gradschool #exercise
This week I'm pretty much running on Empty. Only one more week of classes then I get some down time. ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ Didn't have the energy to do anything heavy today. 185 was feeling crazy heavy for deadlifts. I decided to work on more stability and core work. I think squats on the bosu ball are my new favorite exercise. Stills hate abs but at least I'm finding ways to change it. Hope everyone has a great Friday and here's to the weekend! ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ #fitness #fitfam #girlswholift #grind #nodays #health #wellness #fit #gymlife #fitness #fitchick #motivation #backday #deadlift #core #weights #movement #stability #trx #balance #strengthtraining #torylanez #bosuball
