Turn Negatives into Positives

Turn a NEGATIVE into a big fat POSITIVE! Wait …scrap #fat, replace with #muscular πŸ˜πŸ˜œπŸ‘ …Due to a rough day I gave a little extra to my workout efforts tonight and by ‘a little’ I mean A LOT ☺ It felt so good to fight out frustration and harbored stress build up over the course of my day. The only way we can be defeated is when we allow it to happen! So with that said, if the events of your day make a wrong turn, just know there’s another crossroad ahead. Change your attitude, change your energy and you are capable of changing anything! Fight on friends! …πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ #Fitspiration #Fitspo #Wednesday #Workout #Health #Fitness #TurnBadIntoGood #Traps #Shoulders #Delts #Biceps #Triceps #Abs #Core #Muscle #Hardbody #Change #Message #Negative #Positive #Fight #Superwoman #SheHulk #Beastmode #GymRat #FollowTheLita ❀……..I don’t know where my traps came from but evidently they decided to pop out and say hello this evening, whatever man haha …😜

Even the Strong are Weak

#LitaExposed; I’ve learned that my greatest weakness is not having the courage to ask for help, especially when I need it most. I’ve learned that lacking bravery diminishes ones true strengths, and that efforts without courage will fall short of obtaining any goal or quest. I’ve learned that it pains me to expose a weakness/admit to needing help/to say I cannot do something, and for what reasons, I cannot be sure. Perhaps it’s my pride and ego that feels the need to hold on to the tough-girl card I’ve owned for so long and wave it proudly over my head or maybe a role I’ve adopted as a young teen when caring for my sisters became a fundamental duty at home. Whatever the cause, I recognize it now and do my best to improve upon it each day …….. After all, even the strongest, toughest, alpha Lion needs to rest in the shade after enduring a battle… …. … ….

The Definition of a Superwoman

For me, referencing “Superwoman” is not about wearing a cape, posing with my chin to the sky & my fists mounted on my hips …it is simply a STATE OF MIND. 😎 Any task from tackling a difficult workout to managing a household & caring for kids requires a level of focus, dedication and hard work. So when I reference, tag or claim “superwoman” just know that it’s only partly a narcissistic nudge (ha!) but primarily mirrored to a type of attitude, one that is valid & essential for GETTIN’ ISH DONE! Whatever that may mean to you & your life… BE A SUPERWOMAN …and for my faithful male followers, you already know, keep SUPERMAN’ing it out there! πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ #GivingFace 😜☺😘 #DoWork #TeamFitness #Superwoman #Superman #Superhuman #Superhero #FollowTheLita ❀

Know Your Heart Rate

Understanding the role our HEART RATE plays during exercise will help you to realize that this β€œbeastmode” mentality may not always be serving your purpose. #SayWhat?! 😱 This chart illustrates how our efforts from VERY LIGHT to MAXIMUM correlates to our fitness goal/or desired results. When people ask me for advice my initial response is to reflect this question right back at em’ …”WHAT IS YOUR GOAL?”… It always starts with YOUR GOAL! πŸ˜‰ With that said, pay attention – ensure that your workout efforts are right align with what it is you are trying to achieve … πŸ‘“ #GetYourSquintOn #TrainSmart #TeamFitness #HeartRate #Exercise #Cardio #Workout #Beastmode #Training #Goals #Training #Fitspiration #Fitspo #Instagood #Popular #FatBurn #Speed #Performance #Maximus #Recovery #Aerobic #Benefits #FollowTheLita ❀ πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

Distraction Free Gets The Job Done

Flex & Smile …even when you’ve had a tough day 😣 …My Monday night workout went say-so, I got thru an all-body routine just fine however a bad attitude plagued my mental game. A rough day meant my evening workout was tougher than it ought to be simply because my mind set wasn’t 100% in the game, fail. 😞 My advice tonight friends; when you step up on that gym floor do so with a specific goal in mind, then wipe clear every other distraction, be it the chatter box girl looking for your advice or a negative attitude carried from your day or past, let it all go, zone in & focus. In order to maximize your full potential you must commit, body and mind! Always give 100%, eye of the tiger, brow of the bull – GET IT DONE BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, GET IT DONE RIGHT! … #Win πŸ˜‰β€πŸ’ͺ #NoAbsTonight lol #Smh πŸ˜‘ #HoldingWater #FatToBurn πŸ’ƒ #Fitspiration #Fitspo #Instagood #Muscles #Biceps #Smile #Workout #Monday #Beastmode #SheHulk #Superwoman #DoWork #Focus #Flex #Attitude #FollowTheLita

You Are Not A Victim – Get It Together!

You are not a victim. Stop making excuses, stop whinging, stop complaining. As a free individual you always have options; Do or don’t, Left or right, Stay or leave, you are free to make these choices and change your circumstances – when you take full responsibility for yourself, your position, your actions, words and decisions you determine your destiny. And therefore you are NOT a victim but a master of your own fate…….. πŸ˜‰ #BeGreat #BeAmazing #DoBetter #ReachHigher #Act #Decide #SelfResponsibility #Life #LoveYourself #YouAreWorthIt ❀
