  • So you want to live a healthier lifestyle, but you don’t know where to start…⁣
⁣
Last night I ran a poll & the majority of you said that you wanted to make changes, but didn’t know where to start, so let’s taco🌮 bout it…⁣
⁣
First things first, are you Person A or Person B?⁣
👉🏼 Person A: No nutrition protocol whatsoever - your life is filled with processed “junk” food & you have zero knowledge about nutrition, but you’re tired of feeling like shit and ready to make a change.⁣
👉🏼 Person B: You feel like you’ve tried everything when it comes to nutrition, you make mostly healthy choices, but still can’t seem to make progress.⁣
⁣
If you’re PERSON A, read this:⁣
Girl, you are going to be amazed by how good you will feel when you start filling your body with nutritious foods.⁣
My advice to you is to start by making small changes.  This week, pick one meal a day that you are going to focus on.  That may simply mean packing a sandwich, an apple, and a yogurt instead of hitting the drive thru for lunch.⁣
This week, focus on that one meal.  Next week, focus on adding one healthy snack to your day, and pairing it with a glass of water (maybe even add some flavoring to your water if you have to force it down!)⁣
Overall, I want you to focus on making one small change each week to build a healthier lifestyle for yourself and stop feeling like 💩 ⁣
⁣
If you’re PERSON B, read this:⁣
Alright girl, you’ve got some of the basics down.  You know what you NEED to do, but you just can’t seem to find what truly works for you.  And if you think “nothing works for you,” I can confidently tell you that you are wrong - you’re either not doing the right thing, or maybe you just need to be more patient!⁣
So for you, I’d suggest one of two things:⁣
1)Track everything you eat and drink for the next week. ⁣
Are you really being as healthy as you think you are? Is your morning coffee throwing you way overboard on your macros for the day?  Or are you not eating enough to properly fuel your body?⁣
2)Seek help from the outside. ⁣
If you’re not making progress, maybe there’s something you’re missing; maybe there’s something you’re doing wrong. (cont. in comments👇🏼)

  • How much will you sacrifice to get to your goals and dreams?
ㅤ
How many times will you fall and decide to get back up again?
ㅤ
How honest will you be to yourself when no one else is around to watch you do the work?
ㅤ
How resilient will you be when things don’t go your way?
ㅤ
How will you carry yourself when others doubt you or throw negativity your way?
ㅤ
How will you continue to persist when you don’t see results for days one end or even months or years?
ㅤ
How will you carry on when it seems like you’ve run out of time; energy and or money? 
ㅤ
How Long are you willing to run this race knowing there is no end point?
ㅤ
How much pain are you willing to take?
ㅤ
You see these are the things that will define whether or not you get there.
ㅤ
Not your program.
ㅤ
Not your diet.
ㅤ
But the way you see things.
ㅤ
Your mindset.
ㅤ
Your thoughts.
ㅤ
Your beliefs.
ㅤ
Your grit.
ㅤ
They will define your actions and ultimately your outcome and destiny. 
ㅤ
Will you design your life or let it slip through your fingers?

  • People often tell me that they are looking for their passion. Or, they say they used to be passionate about their spouse or job, but they have lost their passion. But, contrary to what seems to be popular belief, you don't find or lose your passion. You choose to be passionate about someone or something.

Your thoughts about a person or thing—not the person or thing itself—create the feeling of passion. If you feel like you have lost passion for your mate, think back to when you first met and you felt passion. What were you thinking? Probably something like he/she is so funny, cute, fun, adventurous, interesting, sexy, smart... You were having lots of positive thoughts about that person. (Same thing goes for the job you once loved.) Now, examine what thoughts you are presently having about your mate. They are probably much more negative. Something like he/she is lazy, boring, annoying...he/she doesn't help around the house or with the kids, he/she doesn't make an effort, doesn't want to do anything fun.

You didn't just lose your passion. It didn't just fade away. You changed your thoughts. Want to get that passion back? Change your thoughts again. You have the power to create passion!

Think about this: What does passion feel like to you? When have you felt that way before? What were you thinking? Those thoughts are the key! How can you change your thoughts now to create the passion you desire? You are in control. Use that control to change your thoughts and your life 😀

  • We are excited to announce that in addition to our 5/6 grade tackle football program we will be offering a 3/4 grade flag football program. 
We believe that this strikes the perfect balance between the development of our athletes and protecting our younger athletes from unnecessary hits as they learn to play the game properly. 
Our 3/4 athletes will get the same Next Level coaching and have the same amount of practice time as our 5/6 athletes. This will give them the opportunity to learn multiple positions and how each position works within the entire team. 
Primarily this kids just starting out a way to gain experience without having to take unnecessary hits before they really know how to take and initiate contact.

We will have more information about this and our 5/6 program at our parent forums coming up on 3/27 and 3/30 at the Sandpoint Library. And as always if you have any questions or comments feel free to drop them below or send us a DM. -MT

  • Always work to be the best you can.  If you make a mistake, own it and change.  This is how we mentally and emotionally grow. 
Don’t like how you look? Change what you eat & how much you exercise.  Stop stepping on a scale and worrying about the NUMBER (results)! Focus on how your body is changing.  And how much better you feel.  It’s #focusfriday so let’s head into the weekend ready to crush the game! #hustlehard #bettereveryday #growthmindset

  • “The reason why we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind the scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel” Steven Furtick
.

We are each on our own journey, some things are shared, others private. Both are OK but don’t allow comparison drag you down!! .

There is usually more to the story you see and EVERYONE is fighting a battle whether private or public. .

Let GRACE & COMPASSION be your super powers! .

When I dumped the gym for at home fitness and nutrition programs, I didn’t just lose a monthly membership fee, the hassle of daycare, and trying to find parking...
.

I gained a COMMUNITY and guidance that holistically lead me to be the healthiest me I had ever been and beyond what I was able to achieve alone (and with a couple of trainers). .

It all started with a group and a coach...which I then became to help others find solutions to a healthy lifestyle they have not been able to find! .

Groups are starting up again in APRIL to help you find a sustainable path to be the healthiest YOU! .

What does the healthiest version of you look like??

6 single arm push press *after each round:
5 burpees

  • I have always been an early riser. While I'm travelling, or back home. I am usually always up before the sunrise, ready to start the day with a morning run.

But I have been having trouble doing it nowadays. It's been a while since I have gone out early in the morning, sweated out a little, and feel energetic.

Maybe it's the weather, or maybe I'm just not motivated enough. I feel my body going out of shape, my energy levels dropping, and I'm not doing anything to make it better.

It's time to use this built-up of negative energy, push myself out of the bed n do what I love to do every day. Go out and burn some calories.

It's a new day, every day!

🚨 PR Alert 🚨 300 lbs x 1
When I was getting close to my 300 deadlift I was counting down, but this 300 squat kind of snuck up on me. This is a testament to consistency and putting in the work to get better and strengthen weaknesses. If you asked me I would probably say squats are my least favorite and possibly even my worst lift, but I’m not sure if that’s still true, it’s just super ingrained in me. “I’m not built for squats,” “squats hurt my back,” or “squats just hurt,” were things I’ve always told myself. But I did them anyway. I did them right and I did things to make them not hurt. Hard, consistent work isn’t fun or flashy, but that’s what gets you to your goals.

  • Flex Friday 
I want to take a second to talk about a different kind of strength: mental strength.

I know theres a lot floating around about mental health and it can all become a little overwhelming. I've heard a lot of things being said about mental health in general that shows that, while there are more people talking about it, there is still a lot of education to spread about it.

Despite the slowly-building conversation, there is still a lot of stigma around mental illness and what it really means to experience depression, anxiety, and other things that go hand in hand with having any kind of mental health diagnosis. People still think you can just "think it all away" or that there is a magic pill that can just make everything go away.

Everyone responds differently to mental health issues. Some people respond very well to medication, some people don't need medication, some people can't function properly without medication. None of those people are better than another.

The important part is that you are doing whatever it takes to keep yourself healthy, regardless of how that looks. It might mean that sometimes, you have to shut yourself off from interacting with other people, or maybe you need to surround yourself with more people.

Just remember: you cannot pour from an empty cup. 
I often take time to just sit by myself and not think about ANYTHING. I mean, I have thoughts, but I actively push them to the side until I am ready to tackle them. This has helped make me a better friend, a better mom, a better wife. Focusing on me sometimes feels selfish, but it helps me to really be there for my friends and family when they need me.

What do you do to refill your cup and flex your mental health muscle?

What drills are you focusing on during your in season training??

  • Throwback to 2013! This was my first ever crossfit comp. At this time I had only been doing Crossfit for a short amount of time and had recently opened my first gym. Looking back it amazes me at just how little I knew not only about competing but business ownership. I’ve experienced so much since this day and had more failures than I can count ... but I grew and learned from each of them. The things and people I have been able to experience through Crossfit have truly been a blessing! Cheers to many more years of learning through trial and error. .

  • This year I am very excited to be walking with my children, family, friends, and company in Des Moines' HeartWalk; organized by @ahaiowa . This year two of my childrens nanas had medical issues directly related to their heart. I also know of a handful more people that have been effected by heart disease, but most likely you yourself have been affected by heart disease if not directly then definitely indirectly. If you are able to donate or walk with my team feel to sign up! Http://www2.heart.org/goto/vibeyourtribe

  • Our moment of zen.
.
On our way to the best version of ourselves, we have to envision an awesome future day wherein we’ll be a paragon of skill and practice. Nothing can stop us when we make the future us so real that we celebrate our future selves at every step along the way. Many call this celebrating small wins, but it’s more than that because we don’t just need to celebrate the now, we need to celebrate our goal because a clear picture of the future should always be in the forefront of our minds. Starting today, we can do what it takes to think of the future, because it can help us now.
