Every week, we’re participating in #totalhonestytuesday, sharing the things we’d usually keep off of social media, and giving a little more insight into our real (and very un-perfect) lives. Hopefully, in doing this, we can all feel a little less pressure to appear a certain way online, and remember that everyone around us is much more than just the highlight reel we normally see.
#totalhonestytuesday one of my biggest insecurities is my inability to truly transition to a morning person, no matter how much it would benefit my work. I used to love being a night owl, but now I find myself feeling guilty when I struggle to get up any earlier than the absolute latest I can get away with, and I hate the feeling of not having control over my habits. On the rare occasions it happens naturally, like today, I feel irrationally productive and zen. Gotta make the most of it.

#totalhonestytuesday pup sitting rocks, but it reminds me that while I'd love to have a dog, our apartment is too small (~300 square ft) to fit anything other than ourselves and our too-big shoe collection

#totalhonestytuesday regram from @cheloftheseaaaa. Don't forget to share (and tag us in) your #totalhonestytuesday. Here's what she had to confess. * "This #totalhonestytuesday features me assigning way too much meaning to this bar cart. I've had the supplies to put this together since December but I've avoided doing it because I wanted to make it perfect. I wanted to paint or decorate the cart. I wanted to get matching wine glasses. I wanted to get more liquor and mixers. I was doing what I always do, avoiding completing something because it wouldn't be perfect. Then finally this weekend it hit me – nothing will ever be perfect & this is sure as hell a lot better than a bar cart piled with junk. AND GUYS it's kinda perfect. Hoping this lesson carries over to the rest of my liiiiife! ✨"

#totalhonestytuesday #nofilter today has been ROUGH. Two high carb days. My last heavy leg day. I am exhausted. My daily personal beauty routine is usually 30 minutes if I wash my hair and put on makeup, now it's 2 hours every. Single. Day. My work schedule is nothing short of a chaotic and unpredictable mess right now. I'm always thirsty and chugging water. The belly bloat is the worst I've had in months. I'm starting to stress over every thing that can go wrong. But I have to trust the system. I've chosen a different strategy and plan than what's considered "the norm", and deviating from it will kill every thing I've worked for for the past six months. I've got 4 more days to see everything pay off. To prove what I set out to prove six months ago. It's too late to quit. Success is the only option. As my @nutrishopglendora_westcovina @nutrishopusa tank is reminding me today, "You can have results or excuses, not both." I choose success. I choose results. So, here I am. I worked a mere 9 hours of absolute insanity today. I hauled ass to LA for a confidence booster and check in with the best of the best. I put in a KILLER leg workout. I'm putting in my cardio time. I'll head home for an hour and a half of the prep that happens outside the gym. I'll get in the rest of my macros throughout out that, which have been spot on all weekend, despite the unpredictable work craziness. Because now is not the time to throw in the towel. Now is the time to buckle down and finish what I've started. #sleepwhenimdead #peakweek #lifeofanathlete #lifeofanathletictrainer #exhausted #eatclean #iifym #prep #preplife #progress #gainz #fitchicks #alreadycrying #nutrishopfamily #transformationtuesday #cantstopwontstop #justkeepswimming

Cheers to weekend adventures! 🍻 Life has honestly been so stressful lately that we've had to specifically schedule time to spend without screens, away from work. All that anxiety (with a little #wanderlust sprinkled on top) led to a spontaneous trip to a new city in a few days! 🚗💨 #tinyadventure #mytinyatlas #dock #bay #babe #cheese #winter #delightful #adventure #chasinglight #cheers #water #city #getaway #selfcare #babes #workhardplayhard #littlethings #totalhonestytuesday #springiscoming #stress #anxiety #babesofinstagram

"It took me years to become the woman my mother raised" – #cherylstrayed #onedayiwill see these girls become the next generation of superheroes. And I will know my hard work paid off and is being paid forward. #internationalwomensday is about making each other strong. #totalhonestyTuesday with no makeup, hair or pretenses

If you've seen me since my volleyball injury in December you've probably heard me bitching about how difficult it is to live injured (let alone disabled) in NYC. Seriously folks, it's a nightmare–give up your seat on the subway. One👏🏼More👏🏼Week👏🏼 #totalhonestytuesday oh yes & s/o to @j.koss who decorated my boot–she does all assistive devices🌈🖌👍🏼

Feeling mildly shitty about my face and my body. Just finished reading Purple Hibiscus in the space of a few hours, and it was disquieting to say the least. I actually have Saturday off tomorrow for once and it feels weird. Have been missing B since afternoon, fitfully. Today was the last teaching day of grade 7. These aren't the blues, these are the mean reds. #meanreds #blues #bindi #face #ramble #totalhonestytuesday #exceptitsfriday #purplehibiscus #reading #bodyimage #teaching #lastday
