Same outfit, whole new world🤣 it's amazing to me how tiny little changes happen every day and we almost don't notice them until looking back at a picture or video. Having a tiny baby grow so quickly over just 1 year really drove that one home. I'm stunned he's not a baby😅 It just reminds me that even when you feel stuck, or a phase of life seems unending. It's not, things are changing for you. It's always those sneaky little changes we work on that add up to big progress in life ☺️ So I'll just be here soaking up everything I can from each day I've been given. There's always something there for us. In the especially tough days or the especially beautiful ones - we have a chance to find and hold on to the gold. - “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8
FAQ time😄 has having Noah changed our marriage? Lol yes, most definitely. I think that was one of the biggest, maybe toughest adjustments for us. Maybe more so for me? It went from me and Gus to me, Gus and this new baby that I loved with such an intense love that I had never experienced before and didn't expect at all. And that happened overnight. It took me the better part of Noah's 15 months to figure out the balance of mom/wife and it's most definitely still in need of tweaking a lot of days. I'm blessed Gus has given me such grace with it. So yes, he has changed our marriage but it's definitely taught me a lot along the way. The biggest thing I've realized is that we need to be intentional with time together so we don't completely miss any time with each other daily. It seems crazy saying it but it just happens. So we now have date night in weekly where I don't work and we eat and hang out together ☺️ The crazy thing is I really feel a lot more connected all week when we spend that one night hanging out. Anyways, random share but I get asked it so often. I hope it helps anyone else going through that adjustment! #createdwithadidas #grandcourt

This face perfectly captures how I feel at the end of some days😆 Today was one of those days. I absolutely love being able to stay home with Noah and do something I love! That doesn't mean that some days I feel like I just completed some kind of impossible obstacle course where you try and juggle a million different things without dropping one🤣 I know sometimes I feel like if I have so much to be thankful for that I shouldn't ever feel worn out from it. But I wanna share this for anyone that feels the same. I love my life. I'm thankful beyond words. And some days still wear me out🤷 Life can be amazing and crazy at the same time and that is perfectly ok. But we've gotta remember when the crazy starts, how truly amazing it is. And when wildness is goin on in my day I can't help but remember what my dad likes to say, 'sometimes it be that way sometimes'👌
This left me with sore glutes + inner thighs😆 so yayy for that! But I get asked a lot and want to mention, you don't need to be sore from every workout! I have pretty high reps here, if you have a weight that is pretty challenging for you, the reps may need to be lowered a bit! The point is to be really feeling it at the end of those reps! 🌟3 rounds of each before moving to the next pair : rest up to 30 seconds before going to the next pair🌟 - ×20 Deadlift ×20 Squat - ×15 Split Squat R+L ×10 Step back to side lunge R+L Both ways is 1 rep - ×16 Low start plyo lunge To modify start low and step into chair position to step opposite foot back ×16 Sumo Jack To modify tap one foot in alternating sides - Finish with 50 ×Bridge w/ pulse
This might be my first haircut in 2019 and it was Noah's 1st ever soo big day for us😆 was excited my girl in Columbia squeezed us in before we leave tomorrow. Fun fact I've never found a new hairdresser, I always go home. Even more fun, she was one of my first in person training clients! - Besides all that excitement, it's really been amazing going through all the firsts. It brings a whole new excitement to everything. We let things get so mundane as adults. So normal. So boring. So rushed through. I vote we bring the fun back😄 That we search for the tiny things that make us smile. That we notice the little things we often overlook. That we live a life of gratitude for the blessing of each day. I also think I should have as many treats during my haircut as Noah got during his just to avoid picture two for 3 minutes 🤣 - What's something small that brightens your day?!
Some fun moves + 𝘮𝘰𝘥𝘪𝘧𝘪𝘦𝘳𝘴 too! Let me know if you give it a try😁 I'm getting back into things this week after only working out twice last week! I can't remember when that's ever happened before 🤣 but like I mentioned in my story, it's ok! I'm counting it as some extra rest and moving forward. Nothing can be done about what's over. We can only move forward doing out best! So let's get it this week guys!♥️ 🌟40 seconds work : 15 rest X 3-4 rounds🌟 ×Modified single leg push up× •𝘤𝘢𝘯 𝘣𝘦 𝘢 𝘧𝘶𝘭𝘭 𝘱𝘶𝘴𝘩 𝘶𝘱. ×Pike push up w/pulse× •𝘯𝘦𝘹𝘵 𝘴𝘭𝘪𝘥𝘦 𝘮𝘰𝘥𝘪𝘧𝘪𝘦𝘳 - 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘴𝘭𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵𝘭𝘺 𝘭𝘰𝘸𝘦𝘳 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘥𝘴 𝘸𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘣𝘦 𝘪𝘥𝘦𝘢𝘭 𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦. ×Slow cross reach× •𝘚𝘭𝘰𝘸𝘸𝘸 - 𝘢𝘪𝘮 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘪𝘮𝘢𝘭 𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘴𝘰 𝘮𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵.

Noah's 1st beach day! Best day everrr 😄 I love the beach and was soo excited to take Noah but also prepared for him to melt and be there 5 mins. But it was awesome! I hope everyone else is have an amazing weekend! #isleofpalmsbeach
When I was a competitive runner my training mindset was pretty much all or nothing. Literally if I didn't think I had time for the run or was somewhere it wasn't convenient - I did nothing. Unfortunately for my summer training his led to a lot of nothing days😅 Which led to a rough pre season and probably a lot of performances that could have been better. Today, I switched my scheduled upper body that I would have had to do after packing and traveling, to an interval run. This may seem insignificant but being flexible in my training for the last few years and adjusting when I need to has been a huge key for staying so consistent. You don't have to be perfect to make progress. Give yourself permission to do what you can that day! It's always better than skipping because it wasn't exactly as planned.
