Balance comes from working imbalanced!
Many workouts and workout plans concentrate on working out body in balance. A squat, a lunge, running in a treadmill or using a exercise bike for example. I am not saying we shouldn’t do those things, far from it! What I am advocating is working the body out of balance.
What do I mean and Why is it important?
Doing these exercise moves like a lunge (see photo), a press up, a squat etc we are having to work at balancing the body which in turn works more muscles. But not only that, it improves the connection between our brain and the muscles being used. We train the body to cope with different stresses that are more akin to real life. A push up with one hand on a step is another example.
It’s important to train the body in this way as when did you ever do a normal squat to put two equally sized and weighted items into a cupboard. Invariably we lunge or reach down with one item in one hand, a bit off balance and achieve putting the item away. That’s real life! By training in this way you are less likely to injure yourself from one of those moves.
It’s what I love about my online and in person training that I give, I ensure all clients train this way. Whether it’s doing squat lunges with one foot on a step or lunges using a wobble ball (like the picture), I build up clients body resilience. @davidmartinfitness

“She is like a cat in the dark and then
She is the darkness
She rules her life like a fine skylark and when
The sky is starless
All your life you've never seen
A woman taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven?
Will you ever win?...”

Have you ever wondered why you feel like you just don’t fit in with anyone else? Darling, you’re different.
Having trouble making friends at school? Darling, you’re different.
Getting told you’re “too pretty” to be a scientist, an engineer, a doctor? Darling, you’re different.
Wondering why you’re the only person that looks like you in your classes? Darling, you’re different.
Feeling like no one around you understands you at work?
DARLING, you’re different.
The beauty of social media is even when you are so different from everyone around you in your city or town, you can connect with someone just as different as you from across the world and feel not so alone.
So if you’re feeling different today, this week, this month - remember, someone out there is just as different as you are and feeling the exact. same. way.

Do you remember the first time you felt 'grown'? How old were you when you first felt like a true adult? Was there an experience that made you feel grown rather than a number/age?⠀
Before getting to feelin’ grown, I had experienced several things that most people would assume went with adulthood. ⠀
I’d planned someone’s funeral...⠀
I’d moved across the country (twice)...⠀
I’d vacationed internationally alone (okay, just to the Caribbean)⠀
I’d fallen in and out of love...⠀
I’d left the house AT MIDNIGHT to go party⠀
By all accounts, I’ve been grown and over 18 for quite some time, but I didn’t feel good and grown until I stood my ground and set permanent boundaries with my family without feeling anger, guilt, or the need to keep explaining myself. There comes a time in everyones lives where they must decide to put their foot down and demand the respect they deserve as an adult. This can be especially difficult for some more than others because of family culture. ⠀
In my case, my family culture is such that your entire adult life is an exercise of gratitude toward your parents for being alive and for having decent provision. Can you relate? Have you ever struggled with setting boundaries with your parents/family? Let me know in the comments! ⠀

Just what I needed to share with you today :) in my bio link is my latest podcast episode:
“Overcome your Obstacles with Time Management”⏳
Click and give a listen.
Also, get the free self coaching worksheet that will help you uncover your obstacles with time.
Why did I do this episode? Every single day I get emails and see comments from many of you telling me you don’t have enough time, you’re feeling overwhelmed, you’re too busy, and most importantly – you’re not getting done what you want to get done.
It’s time to change that - but you can’t change it until you know what it is. Tune in and find out. ❤️
I’m a wild girl form a cursed line of women. I paw at the ground and run under the moon. I like the feel of my own body. And if I talk to loud it’s just that I’m trying to be heard.

Spring is soooo close, I can feel it. I can feel the winter blues starting to maybe see the end of this. The days are getting longer and the sunshine peeks in a little brighter. Watching stories of friends with green grass and flowers already ... we just need the temps to get on the spring train! Who’s ready for gardens and all the green?!

I was recently nominated for the Fix Her Crown blogger award by @cindylauderdalemoore . This is a new award created by Cindy to spread recognition and support between women, and I feel incredibly honored to have received it. It got me thinking about how important it is for women to truly support each other, and also what might be getting in the way of us doing so more often. .
All of this inspired my latest blog post, "Women Supporting Women: Why You Should Fix Her Crown." Check it out at the link in my BIO. Get inspired to help shift the dynamic, so we can start building each other up more as women. And, see who my picks are for the Fix Her Crown Award - women who are sharing their incredible wisdom, inspiration, and beautiful energy with the world and who support other women in doing the same.
Let's spread some LOVE!

I was super honored when @indymaven asked me to participate in this fun feature for Leap Day. It’s such a thrill to be included in the company of all of these amazing women.
It was mentioned yesterday on @komposeyoga that I was a fearless leader but I want to set the record straight. I have fears. A lot of them. But rather than letting them control me and keep me small- I choose to see them for what they are- often warning signs to double check with my intuition and make sure that I am making the right decision for me. Once I acknowledge that fear, I tap into my faith and leap. A dear friend told me when I was opening the studio- once you jump, the net will appear. So I jumped. And the net appeared over and over again.
For Leap Day 2020, Indy Maven asked local women to share their stories of traveling that scary and uncertain road to pursue a goal or dream, from auditioning for a major reality show to quitting a job to volunteer around the world.
If you’re considering taking a leap, here are 13 stories that might just put you over the edge—in the best way possible. Click the link in the bio to read their stories!
Happy Leaping!! . #indymaven#leapyear#takealeap#indywomen#loveindy#instagood#womenempowerment#womensupportingwomen#womeninspiringwomen#indianapolis#kompose#yoga

Bring it on!!!!! Make it happen. Speak it in to existence.
Defining and owning our core values is what moves us towards success.
When I made a goal to have my own business, I had to really take a look at my core values. It is so easy in this business to get stuck in the obsession of social media at all hours of the day because that is one of the foundational pieces of what we do. However, if you lose sight of your core values, what is the point of creating this life for yourself? .
My top 5 core values are the center focus of my life:
✨Family and friends .
When I live these core values in my day to day life, they will naturally flow over to my business. I will not replace time with God, time with family/friends, R&R time, or dispose of my integrity/commitment/consistency etc for my business because that is the point of this business! To build IT on core values, not build your core values on it. I build time into my day for my business, not make my day all for my business. .
Don’t lose sight of the things that set your soul on fire 💛
What is the definition of a good girl anyway?⠀

Imagine going to school to become a nurse because you felt that that was your purpose, to working several jobs that you were not so passionate about, in fact you probably dreaded but did anyways, to sharing handmade hair care products with a small following and steadily growing on social media not realizing you were setting yourself up to become the proud owner of @Mielleorganics? That is exactly what @exquisitemo did and gracefully we should say. Now you can find her hair care products in Sallys, target, Walmart, and CVS stores all across the United States. @Exquisitemo not only launched a natural hair care line loved amongst hundreds of thousands, but she is also reaching down and helping bring up other aspiring entrepreneurs who may not have mentors, and the proper knowledge to guarantee success in business. Now that is truly commendable. For that we have to highlight women like @exquisitemo a true inspiration too many women and men around the world.

Black History month still isn't over, we have to honor the one and only Maya Angelou, An American poet, singer, author, and civil rights activist. Ms. Angelou gracefully came and conquered the world with her famous book titled "I know why the Caged Bird Sings" which hailed Maya Angelou as "a new kind of memoirist." Maya Angelou was also the first female poet to recite a poem at a U.S Presidential Inauguration in 1971, first Black woman to write a screen play of a major film, and many more commendable accomplishments that set her as one of the inspiring historical figures around the world.

My motherhood regret...🤯 .
I’ve always wanted to be a mom, expect for a bit when I dreamed of being a hostage negotiator but that was short lived. Being a mom is something I always wanted and dreamed about. I’d imagine myself doing all the fun firsts... first word, first step, first food... all the things but I wasn’t prepared for the last time our kids would do something! .
I’m slowly entering this new season in motherhood and coming to terms with the end of a season I always dreamed of. I no longer have tiny babies that I get to make decisions for. I have young men that hold on to every word I say and try hard to process what’s right and wrong. I don’t have babies that wake up crying in the middle of the night and just want to snuggled. I have boys that wake up and decide if they want to give me a kiss out the door. I no longer have toddlers that I have to watch constantly to make sure they don’t fall. I have future leaders that need to understand hard work is totally up to them (so we argue about math homework being done right a little more)! .
Motherhood is looking different for me and you may or may not be in the same stage as me but I want to encourage you to be present in whatever season you are in because seasons change at a blink of an eye! If you’re struggling to conceive use this time to make memories with your partner to share with your future baby. If you’re pregnant, sit a while and take in your pregnant belly. If your 3 month old is waking up 3 times each night, take one of those time just to snuggle and give them kiss... Sis, whatever stage of life you are in, be present! I regret not being more present! You just may be living a life you dreamed of but haven’t stopped to notice all that you have! ❤️😘🥰 .
