  • It’s Wednesday! Which means tomorrow is Thanksgiving and we are going to eat allll the food...and have no regrets! The holidays can be a hard time for people in terms of eating and trying to ‘stay on track’ or ‘be good.’ I used to think this way and stressed so much about gaining weight that I couldn’t even enjoy the time with my friends and family. I remember every single time I would go to the restroom, I would lift my shirt up to see how huge my belly was because of what I ate. I would pull on my fat and then suck it in as much as possible to see how skinny I could be. That’s how I measured what I needed to lose, what my worth was. It sounds so messed up now, but that’s how I felt almost every single day! It’s crazy ridiculous because of course my belly is going to get bigger with food in it and my worth is not based on my size. But I couldn’t rationalize that even just last year. And to be honest, I still get that way sometimes. I tell myself I shouldn’t have this or can’t have that but in reality, it doesn’t matter! The holidays shouldn’t be about worrying if you’re going to gain weight or not. Enjoy yourself, drink plenty of water, laugh until your belly hurts, and appreciate everything that you have

  • Happy Friday #fitfam this week has draaaaged on for us and we are SO happy that it’s finally the weekend. We took a few more rest days than we usually do, but it’s so important to listen to your body when it says ‘hey, I’m tired, give me a break.’ So, we did. And even though we still don’t feel 100% right now, we know going into the weekend that our bodies will thank us. What do you have planned for the weekend? 🤗

  • Hardest part of ab day is flexing for a pic afterwards haha but no, seriously. My abs are on and I’m happy to be seeing a little bit of definition. Abs are my least favorite to train but important for a strong core and back! Here’s the circuit I did today! Took me about 20 mins and it’s no joke. Repeat each round 3 times! 1️⃣ 20 Weighted Russian twists | 10 weighted in/outs | 10 weighted sit up 2️⃣ 10 weighted toe touches | 10 hip thrusts | 30 second plank 3️⃣ 40 mountain climbers | 10 weighted v ups | 10 stability ball in/outs 4️⃣ Burnout - Plank until collapse

  • ❗️SWIPE ❗️ Here’s to #transformationtuesday Alright, this is a bit nerve wrecking (and embarrassing) to post, but what the heck right?! We all start somewhere and here’s to our journey! Our motto is: Just Show Up. We started really focusing on our health and active lifestyle almost a year ago & haven’t looked back since! There have been ups and downs and many disappointments along the way, but ultimately we have stuck with it and are really proud of the progress we have made so far. Motivation is hard and really a load of but just showing up and pushing yourself, is what has gotten us to this point. We each have battled with not feeling good enough and hating our bodies, and while the physical progress is nice, it’s not what we strive for anymore. We want to FEEL good. Eating nutritious foods, being active, lifting heavy weights, it has all helped shift our mental perspective of ourselves and we have been able to help each other because of this. Progress takes TIME ⌛️mental and physical. Being consistent and going on days where you literally do not want to go is where the real changes take place. Just show up . . .

  • Trying our hand at filming some of our workouts so we can see our form and what we could improve on. It's been pretty helpful and we thought we'd share here to show the different types of workouts we do 🤗swipe to see!

  • Happy #flexfriday been feeling a little "puffy" this week from all the Halloween foods, but am ready to head into the weekend with a fresh start! I love working out on the weekends because I feel like I can take my time and really push myself and it's a nice time to slow down and recenter my priorities. What do you like to use your weekends for? - PS trying to smile and flex at the same time is real hard, anyone else have this struggle??

  • Feeling good about my results lately and have been making my workouts more fun and enjoyable (hence the grandpa tucked in shirt photo). Sometimes enjoying your success is doing stupid to help enjoy your routine. Anyone else ever spice it up when you're not feeling super swole?

  • Two different kinds of workouts today . 1️⃣Tyler got creative in his hotel room in San Fran with some body weight exercises as well as filling up his suitcase as heavy as possibly for some added weight for curls, squats and shoulders. 2️⃣Sarah tried a new leg routine at the gym here in OC, resistance with some added cardio and that booty is gonna be burnin tomorrow. . Although we haven't been together the past couple of days, we still fit in our workout. And sometimes you have to get creative like Tyler

  • Early morning workouts are rough ️we typically hit the gym in the evenings after work, but wanted to get our sweat on before heading to San Diego for the day. Needless to say, we thought we were gonna die what time of day do you prefer to workout?

  • This. Sometimes the hardest part of self improvement is stopping to realize we're inherently worthy. That it's simply about maximizing our potential, rather than thinking we're less than. Breathe. Live. Love. Repeat.
