Happy Earth Day!
Today I am reminded of my time in Svalbard and listening to stories of locals describing how climate change has impacted the nature in this fragile place. They have had red clouds of pollution hailing from places around the world, the receding of glaciers, and thinning of annual sea ice, all of which has taken a toll on wildlife and people.
But they are all hopeful that we as a species have the ability to reverse climate change and look towards a sustainable green future. Because we can make a change to better ourselves and our planet.
Hearing these stories and having these experiences wouldn’t be possible without the many environmental heroes I’ve had in my life. Thank you to those who celebrate Earth Day each and every day. Whether you recycle and have sustainable consumer choices, participate in green policy makers, educate others, or are at the frontlines fighting against unsustainable climate regimes, we are moving in the right direction. #earthday

When it comes to keeping the intensity high in the gym! I recommend getting a great pair of headphones to block out the distractions! S/O to @beatsbydre for coming in clutch for this cut!
Cleanup after the new roof was a NIGHTMARE. All done. Raked all the old bark from the yard, will replace with stone/ rocks / river rock-bark combo. Just in time for the jasmine to bloom. Japenese Maple survived the winter, just needs to grow. #thisoldhouse#homeowner#bungalowrenovation#progress

2 years ago, I made my humble stage debut as Watchman 3 in Much Ado. Tonight Chicago, cerulean returns to Shakespeare to take on The Lead... Watchman 1 in R&J. #progress
Two posts one day. Who am I.
I'm a poverty bencher. But I work fucking hard at the little improvements I make. And I love seeing shit like this.
Video one is my first 70kg just a few weeks ago, compared to today's 70kg. Shook. ... Video two was attempt one and attempt two today. Massive difference, technically some mistakes, lost tightness at the bottom, bar path a bit shit. But generally .. scared attitude cause it's 70kg innit. Dats big ..
Once we established it was just another rep, magic happened. And that's seriously my little chant going forward. ..
Happy Monday 🤩

❤️ STORYTIME ❤️ Die liebe Annika... Eine tolle Frau, die einfach nur die 3 Bausteine ihrer Challenge umgesetzt hat...täglich 2x Powerstoff 2-3 Liter Wasser und 10 Minuten Workout. So einfach 👌🏼 Annika's Zitat :
" Da schaue ich in meinen Schrank und was finde ich?
Das Oberteil was ich 2017 zu der Einschulung meines Sohnes getragen habe, wo ich stolze 96 Kilo auf die Waage brachte- dank der Geburt meines zweiten Kindes 💫
Und jetzt ziehe ich es an...fast 2 Jahre später und 25 Kilo weniger und schaue stolz was ich bisher geschafft habe ❤
Warum zeige ich das hier auf Fb?
Weil ich stolz bin, was ich erreicht habe und es mit der Welt teilen möchte und andere inspirieren will, sich nicht ihrem Schicksal zu fügen, sondern ihr Leben selbst in die Hand zu nehmen👐 Es ist so ein geiles Gefühl in den Kleiderschrank zu schauen und Teile die du lange Zeit nicht mehr anziehen konntest raus zuholen und anzuziehen 😍
Trying to remember why i bother working out legs when they just don’t grow!!!!
Wasn’t the best gym day, but better to go and burn some calories than sit at home. I started trying to squat more again, messing with my stance and reps, trying to figure out what works and feels the best for me. 🔻Like I said, it was a short workout (Had to get home to see GOT)
-Leg extension 5x12-15
-Hamstring curls 5x12-15
-Leg press 5x12-15
-Leg extension 3x8-10
⭐️I used to never do leg press, like never ever, because all of ever hear is squats to grow legs, they're the meat and potatoes for leg growth, plus you see people bashing people's PR's on leg press and saying "But you can't squat that" so it kinda just lead to the mentality that you should squat your ass off. I was wrong with all that thinking. Looking back I wish I would've atleast done leg press the past 4/5 years instead of nothing because I have definitely noticed a difference in my legs since using it 2-3x a week. I feel you can control it much easier and can play with your stance and leg movement slot safer than you can with squats. Yes it's not a squat, Yes you can leg press more than you can squat, No you shouldn't give up squats, obviously, But if you're trying to grow your legs more and hardly ever use the leg press, definitely work it in 3x a week of you can. Change up the reps and foot placement to hit different muscles, you won't regret it
🌟 New week to crush my GOALS! 🌟 Who's with me? Have you set your INTENTIONS for this week? Do it now! Set 3 goals for this week and focus on them. I have written mine down and they are my main FOCUS for the week. ⠀
I wasn't that great last week at staying on track, but that's not going to hold me back one bit. ⠀
I've decided that if I want a specific CHANGE to happen, then I have to make some BIG changes! I know I have it in me to do, I just need to do it. ⠀
What are your goals for this year? for the next 6 months? for the rest of this month? Tell me. Say it out loud and let's support each other!

No matter what, dress up, show up, and NEVER give up!✨💕💪🏼👑 -
That is a big difference between a successful leader and a normal person who is just settling in life. Everyone gets knocked down in life. I don’t care what social media has to say, no one has it perfect. It’s ultimately your choice on how you are going to react to situations. Are you going to be defeated by it or rise up and use it to make you stronger? Don’t just roll with the punches, recognize what is happening, make plans for the necessary changes, and show up and face it like a boss! 👊🏼💖 #MotivationMonday

Påskehelgen kort oppsummert: Hvilepuls, familietid, god mat og godis 🐣 Jeg har nå ladet batteriene til 💯 og er skikkelig gira på å knuse ukens treningsmål 💪🏼
Håper også at dere har hatt en fin påske og er klare for å knuse målene deres for uken 🌟Jeg heier på DEG!
Happy Earth Day Everyone! 🌍🍃 •
Everyday should be earth day. I’ve been in the process of moving so with that I am trying to completely stop using single use plastics and make more changes🌱
We can all do small changes that add up that can help effect change 🌎
