Why I Relinquished Control and Decided to Stop Recording Detailed Notes About My Workouts

popsugar.com

After I quit gymnastics, I started recording my workouts at the gym because I felt like I had to. It was obsessive, and now I've weaned off of that.

Healthy Habit- I see countless people at the gym tracking and recording their workouts. Is it worth it? If you're getting too wrapped up in the tracking it might be worth adjusting. "But I became so strict with it {tracking my workouts} that I would spend too much time at the gym on my phone typing in each exercise and its reps..."

⚡️A love note to my kitchen floor⚡️ ... Dear floor, We’ve had a good run. I’ve walked all around ya as I moved from stove to fridge to sink; crisscrossing and sweeping... You’ve tasted many a good things that I’ve haphazardly dropped as we whipped up a meal or few...Only gonna walk across you for one more week till we move on (to the new house). Your big checker tiles were so cool and funky. Thanks for the vibe. ... Like your style, old floor, but it’s time to move on and up💪 ... #kitchenfloor #aloveletter #tile #oldhouses

💛 Is your massage biz aligned with your personal values? ... "Why does that matter?" you might ask. ... How on earth will you be able to create something wonderful in the world if your massage-life doesn't align with your inner life? ... I know I can't force that. I've never been able to work well at a massage gig or with a certain type of client unless I'm in alignment. I've got to feel connected in some way- not necessarily in every way but there's got to be some sort of overlap. ... For example, I value simplicity. I used to, however, bend over backwards to schedule last-minute clients. And there was nothing simple about rearranging my schedule to fit them them in and all the back and forth that would ensue! I quickly realized I'm not into this "emergency massage" mentality. I finally decided to simplify my life by becoming willing to say "no" to those last minute schedulers. ... ♦️What are some shifts you've made to align your massage-life with your values?

🌱Me + the greens🌱 ... My plot is flourishing! One thing I really love about gardening (besides the veggie bounty, of course) is digging my hands in the dirt.

Smash the onion, Serrano and cilantro in a mortar and pestle till soft; add to avocados; add salt and lime to taste ... SERIOUSLY.

💛 What does vulnerability mean to you when it comes to your massage-life? ... If I had known how vulnerable of an experience entrepreneurship would be and how revealing and unraveling of a process it would be, I never would have said YES🤣. If I had known how much personal growth I'd have to trudge through.....SERIOUSLY. ... The process of growing my practice has been lock-step with growing up and out and in in every way. I've had to confront my own monkey-mind and all the many (limiting) beliefs I have about myself and, out-dated definitions of success that stand in my own way; I've had to "be new" at something OVER, and OVER, and OVER again and I've failed (fabulously) on MANY occasions; I've had to ask for help even though "I have to do this on my own"; the list goes on and on. ... With that said, one of THE greatest gifts of entrepreneurship-> to recognize that being vulnerable isn't bad or weak; on the contrary, being vulnerable is oh so BRAVE💫 So to all you massage-preneurs out there (and heck, all humans practicing vulnerability), I see you; you're inspiring and thank gawd we have one another in the journey💥

⛰Hiking⛰Made it out to our “favorite” trail again (aka: the trail we’ve set goals for: ascend about 3000 to Orchard Camp (half way) in 90 minutes or less) ... Ug. I was smiling in this picture cause that was taken maybe 30 minutes in. It HURT yesterday. It was my slowest time- 1hour, 40 minutes and man, mentally I was just off. Funny how that happens. I just really wanted it over yesterday 🤷‍♀️ ... 🔸Life lesson from hiking: just because I’m doing this same hike over and over again, I can still have a new experience; just because it doesn’t feel good, it doesn’t mean I have to quit- I CAN push through... what’s thesaying, it’s not the destination it’s the journey ... The views were still beautiful, I got some serious exercise, didn’t quit and, I’ll do it all over again✨🙌boom✨💥 ... 🔹How do you push through even when you want to throw your hands up/give up?

✨Can you guess what this picture is? ... 🔹Clue: a day in the life of a massage therapist includes {this}. ... Somehow, I feel SO together and organized when this picture is true ... #massagelife #massagetherapistlife #massagelifestyle #massagetherapistlifestyle

How do you “do” book clubs?📕 ... We are resuming the family book club💪 ... Here’s what a BOOK CLUB means in my fam-damily... 🔸reading whatever book we want -2 per quarter (we keep extending the time frame) 🔸”try” to make the books we each select, respectively (cause we can never decided democratically), fit into the same book category 🔸not really talk about them- just tell one another what we liked about the book once we finally finish ... Yes. This is my real life book club with my bestest mom and bestest aunt🔹 ... The book in the photo is my first read! ‘Bout to get into it!! I’ll report back🤣

PSA: All this talk about "new year, new you" and your resolutions ... I, for one, do take the time to reflect and create goals for the coming year but, not everyone is into this! Feel free to just be yourself and keep on doing you. You don't HAVE to change a damn thing; you don't have to feel inspired, happy or excited about the new year; maybe you just feel neutral about a year come and gone and that's okay too. ... just sayin💥
