  • ATTN. This is not a post to tell you what to do or how to eat to achieve a certain result 🤷🏼‍♀️ but you should read anyway 👇🏽 • I just want to take a minute to A.) show off my booty gains. duh. 🤷🏼‍♀️ B.) let you know that just because someone transforms their body in some way does not mean that they disliked their body before. Keep reading. • Here’s an example that more people can relate to: just because you go to school to receive an education does not mean that you disliked yourself before. It means you believe in yourself enough to go after something that you perceive to be of value. • I value my strength. Powerlifting is something I’ve been working extremely hard at over the last few years. I didn’t dislike myself before I started powerlifting- I didn’t start lifting because I didn’t like my body. I didn’t dislike the photo on the left (I obviously thought I looked good or I wouldn’t have taken the photo). • READ: Just because a transformation happens to somebody’s body does not mean that change initiation stemmed from an insecurity or dislike of their body. • Obviously I like the photo on the right more- because it represents 150+ pounds added onto my squat PR and 200+ pounds added onto my deadlift PR. My “gains” represent countless hours in the gym. Working for something that is valuable to me. • #lionheartedstrong #humpday #bootygainsayyeee #humphreyday #calfgains¿ PS I am opening up more one on one coaching spots starting next week so if you have been thinking about working together, now is a good time to inquire 😊 (my website has more info- link in bio) ❤️ PPS I will be doing a winter nutrition group- details coming soon!

  • I can get so caught in things sometimes that I forget to see the bigger picture. This is something I have been actively working on and I can honestly say I've grown tremendously in this area of my life. For me, this transition has included things as small as not freaking out when I leave my overnight/makeup bag at home (this happened last weekend lol) to much bigger things like realizing that God places people in my life for a reason, and he takes people out of my life for a reason as well. And there's only so much I can control. I have become a less-stressed person because of this transition. I sleep better. I feel more at peace with my life in general. But I am still working on this and it has not been easy - If you feel like this is something you need to work on, join the party. Here's a few things I can tell you: 1.) Practice. Yes practice. practice talking yourself through situations like you would tell a friend (it's easy to be practical when it's not YOUR situation... amiright?) Tell yourself- well you have two options. Either go buy a toothbrush and borrow your roommates foundation for a few days, or drive back home and get your makeup bag. Simple. And don't let it be more than that. This is not a real issue. 2.) Find a good book to read for more complex topics. I've been reading a devotional called "Becoming the woman I want to be" and it's been eye opening as to what I really want out of life. Do your research and find a book, audiotape, something to help guide you. 3.) Find someONE to help guide you, too. Everyone needs accountability sometimes. And it can be as simple as texting a friend- hey I'm working on this and I need your help making sure I stay on track. 4.) Keep working at it even when you don't want to (like everything else in life, right?) Motivation is fleeting. Dedicate yourself. - Comment something you want to be held accountable for or DM me. Text a friend. Write it down. You got this ❤️ #lionheartedstrong

  • 4 very different times in my fitness journey. Lesson on body recomposition 👇🏽 • 1st photo: sometime during the fall of 2014. I was a freshman in college just beginning to learn about powerlifting and finding my passion for health and fitness. I wanted to diet down right at the beginning but I didn’t. I took several months to build some muscle before dieting. I weighed around 152 lbs and the only muscle I had at that point, if any, was from playing sports and doing some weight training in high school. This is what I refer to as the “start” of my fitness journey. • 2nd photo: flash forward to summer of 2015. I spent a few months dieting and got pretty lean. I remember weighing myself at 142 one time, but I might have been leaner than that at some point. • Swipe 👈🏼 • 3rd photo: December, 2016. I was on vacation. Eating whatever I wanted. I don’t know for sure what I weighed then, but if I had to guess I would say around 160 lbs. • 4th photo: March, 2017. I had done a mini cut for about 6 weeks prior to this photo. I was maintaining at this time around 152 lbs again (same as first photo). • I wanted to share these to give a brief overview of the first 2.5 years-ish of my fitness journey but also to show that body recomposition takes a long time. • Let me just say this again- body recomposition takes a long time. I weigh the same in the first and last photo. • There’s so many more photos I could add to those progression scheme to show just how many “ups” and “downs” there has been in my weight in the last few years. • I think sometimes we see people’s body recomp. transformation photos and assume that they are putting on muscle while losing fat and the scale is just staying the same the whole time. That’s not at all how it works. • Body recomposition requires a season of building muscle while in a caloric surplus (eating more calories than you burn aka gaining weight) followed by a season of being in a caloric deficit (burning more calories than you eat aka losing weight). Often several times over again. • Continued below 👇🏽

  • There’s 2.5 years between these photos. - If you had told me my freshman year of college that I would achieve this many #gainz in 2.5 years ... idk what I would have said honestly. I probably would have wondered how much work that would take. - I want to share this for people who are afraid to start because of how far they think they have to go to reach X goal. - It might not be that far away. - Theres no doubt that squatting and deadlifting have developed my back over the years. I’ve deadlifted 2x week since then and squatted 2-3x week since then. - Hypertrophy work for my back has looked something like this: a majority of that time doing 3-5 back exercises per week. And part of that time doing two “back days” per week each consisting of 3-5 back exercises. - I’m currently doing pendley rows, seated cable rows, lat pulldowns, and dumbbell pullovers. 3 sets of each. - #lionheartedstrong #youcandohardthings #throwBACK

  • You're current situation doesn't define you. I hear this often and while I agree, I would like to take this a bit further - You're current situation doesn't define your day. It doesn't even define your five minutes from now. Because nearly everything can be viewed in a different light - Sometimes when I'm frustrated with something, I'll pretend like a client, friend, or family member is telling ME my current situation (as if it were theirs). Basically, I need to take my own advice more often - Any maybe you do too! You're smart. You're capable. You know how to handle this. You got it. #lionheartedstrong

  • Here’s a way back Wednesday post for yah. Timehop reminded me that two years ago I was competing at my first powerlifting meet. I had been lifting for one year. I️ had not previously been into bodybuilding or lifting for fun since high school. I competed in the 63 kg weight class (138 pounds) which is over 20 pounds less than I weigh now lol (I now compete in the 72 kg weight class). **For the record, I am unsure if the videos in this post are my final good attempts- these are just the ones I could find** I squatted 236 pounds Bench pressed 116 pounds Deadlifted 265 pounds 617 total. - I have put almost 200 pounds on my total since then (815 at nationals last month). And I’m excited to see what happens in the upcoming years. Powerlifting is fun I️ guess 💪🏽 #lionheartedstrong

  • Just trying to figure out how to express myself in the most “me” way possible. It’s impossible to not be influenced by the people around us to do certain things, act a certain way, say this or that. Whether we realize it or not. “Just do you” is way harder than it sounds amiright #lionheartedstrong #throwbackmonday #sickafcurrently

Because my life is so dang chaotic I need to remind myself that it’s because I’m going fast and making moves. So chaos should be expected. Can I get a RT. . So here’s your reminder- if your life is feeling crazy, chaotic, and perhaps out of control at times- keep going. .

  • I’m entering 2019 with a new vibe rather than with a resolution (or maybe my new “vibe,” and I use this word loosely, IS my resolution) How much can I learn. 2019 is a blank page ready to be written, and I am ready to soak up everything. More learning. And a little less doing. What can I learn that will make me a better partner to @shaneomara_dpt ? What can I learn that will make me a better disciple for Jesus? What can I learn that will make me the best Occupational Therapist I can be when I graduate in December? What can I learn that will make me a better coach for my clients? A better friend? That will set me up for success in the coming years? I am ready. And I am open to the changes that are coming in my life. How much can I learn this year. 2019- bring it on. . #2019vibes #newyearsgoals #lionheartedstrong #readytolearn #flourishing

When I remember 2018, I’m going to remember the year my life changed for the best. The year I fully trusted God with His plan for my life. The new beginning I desperately needed. .

  • To be Lionhearted Strong means to be courageous, determined, and fearless. It means to embody strength- mentally and physically. 🦁 The idea for #lionheartedstrong came from Joshua 1:9. It says “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” 🦁 It’s a lifestyle. It’s a foundation on which I live my life and coach my clients. 🦁 How are you #lionheartedstrong?

  • I used to be somewhat of a ‘work hard in silence’ kind of person because I thought that’s how it “should be,” but Ed Rush, author of The 21 Day Miracle, challenged my perspective on this mindset. He challenges you to declare your goals loud and proud. And I encourage you to do the same. It gives us a chance to think clearly about what we are working towards, allow people to cheer us on and pray for us, as well as hold us accountable. • I have big goals for 2019. I’ll be finishing my last semester of grad school coursework, heading out of state for 6 months to do my level 2 fieldwork, and graduating. Hallelujah amen. I will also be growing my coaching business as I have increasingly more time to take on more clients, qualifying for and competing at USAPL Nationals, and exploring new and exciting leisure pursuits. • One final exam stands between me and Christmas break. And I’ve been thinking about what I want to do on break #intentionalliving • Here’s my goals for break: 1. First and foremost, make myself available to my family, especially my mom and dad, for anything they might need help with. My family is going through some tough times. 2. Daily devotion and meditation. This is something I should be doing daily already. I plan to embark on my second 21 Day Miracle and commit to this during weekdays at minimum. 3. I will put $800+ toward my student loans. Gotta start somewhere. 4. I will nourish new and old friendships. 5. I will be intentional with my training (already back in the gym with a bigger, better plan) and nutrition. 6. I will be taking on up to three more powerlifting clients. If you’re interested, this is a great opportunity to start. I want to work with you. 7. I will be starting up Winter Group 3.0 just in time for the new year. Intentional training. 8. I will finish editing @kenzie_murr and @larsmurray24 wedding video in time for their anniversary lmao 9. I will (maybe) be taking a trip to the sunshine state. Anybody interested in a low cost road trip with me that wants to take photos all week? I can only bother kenz to model for me and take pics for so long lol. Srs inquiries only lmao. • Cont. below 👇🏽

  • More epic lifting from the Krampus Classic! #RepostPlus @kodi_humphrey - - - - - - Today was awesome. We competed in Lebanon, OH in the Krampus Classic and it was so much more than I could have hoped for. . The atmosphere was epic. The people were awesome. And we did what we came to do: have fun and PR. . My main goal was to PR on all my lifts. I did. For the first time in my life, I did not care to go 9/9 necessarily. But I did anyways lol. I reached on all my lifts and squatted and benched weights I have never touched. I truly trusted the process and the hard work I put into this meet and coached myself (tried to 😅) like I would any of my clients. Reached for heavier lifts when they were there and played it smart when they weren’t. Plus I had @shaneomara_dpt to handle me all day. He exceeded my expectations per usual. . Squat: 325 Bench: 176 Deadlift: 358 . Shane’s goal was to go 9/9. He went 8/9. He missed his first bench because his butt came off the bench. We continued as planned since this was a technical error and not due to a lack of strength. Since it was his first meet today, everything was a PR! He showed up and absolutely blew my expectations out of the water. It was obvious that he was also very well prepared and peaked for this meet. Each of his third attempts was something he had never lifted before. He let me make most of the calls for lifts, and made his own call on his third deadlift and still smoked it. What a stud. So proud of you Shane. . Squat: 440 Bench: 297 Deadlift: 567 . This is only the beginning 😆 . #usapowerlifting #lionheartedstrong #krampusclassic #usaplohio

  • An amazing day to cap off an amazing journey and experience with the love of my life. At first, this started as a journey to engage in something to allow us to grow closer to each other. But along the way, I also started to love this sport. I couldn’t imagine having a better coach and gym partner. Looks like we are going to have to compete again soon @kodi_humphrey .

They had some different machines than our usual gym does so we dinked around with some bro stuff after benchin/deadlifting. Also tried climbing this rope. I am mad at myself because I had more in me I think I was just nervous about how far off the ground I was getting and Shane made me nervous 😂 rematch with myself next time 💪🏽 Shane already posted a video of him successfully climbing to the top.

I heard someone say a while back that she who goes a mile in five minutes and she who goes a mile in thirty minutes... both went the same distance.

  • Here you are scrolling social media, looking for something inspirational, or just wasting time who knows. Take a minute to read this. I don’t even remember where I first read this and I’ve posted it before but it’s changed the way I view leadership. 👇🏽 . "When there is a leadership vacuum, a need for leadership, you don't have to wait to become King, director, Vice President, CEO, or anything, before you step into leadership. Anywhere you see a leadership vacuum, God is going to raise somebody up. That might be you. Train yourself when you see leadership vacuums instead of getting discouraged and frustrated to turn to God and say 'what do you want to do with me?' Because God might be raising you up without a title." . This is so powerful to me. God doesn’t care what our “roles” are. He just wants us to be effective leaders and servants of Christ. To fill leadership roles where there are vacuums, no matter how big or small. Title or no title. To lead one person or thousands ⭐️ . . #leadershipdevelopment #lionheartedstrong #mondaymotivation #personaldevelopement

  • Allowing people who barely know us to control our actions and thoughts is so exhausting 🧠 . We are going to have so many people that barely know us pass judgements on us throughout our lives, to which we have no control over. But we do have control over how it influences us to act and think. Hear me out ... . . I truly believe an increase in self awareness can change so many aspects of our lives- ESPECIALLY how we react to these people who barely know us. In so many cases. . Self aware people know that their own opinions of who they are far more important than anybody else’s opinion of who they are. . They also know that they’re more than their thoughts and feelings. Thinking/feeling a certain way is fine for a minute, but ultimately they know they’re so much more than that. . Self aware people don’t take their results personally. They allow feedback to make them better, not tear them down. . Most importantly- self aware people take responsibility. Because taking responsibility means you are in control- you can DO something about it. . I read these things in a blog by @matt_hearnden a while back and it really challenged my thinking 🤔 . Self awareness, in a lot of cases, is truly just being in control of the situation 💡 Being in control of how you feel/think/react/take responsibility. And that’s so powerful to me. . Take control of the situation or the situation will take control of you ⭐️ . . #selfawarenessjourney #tuesdayquotes #tuesdayvibes #transformtuesday #lionheartedstrong

I was coming from class with literally 16 minutes to get ready, pack, AND get there AND head straight to a family dinner right after bahaha (as in the day me and @rk_photto did this shoot). . I’m not saying I overcame some great feat by attending a photoshoot when I was busy. I’m saying that if I had waited because I didn’t feel good, was busy, and only had a short window of time, I would have missed some great opportunities 🤷🏼‍♀️ and this is true so often in my life. . I can’t do it ALL (I’m learning this 😅), but I say ‘yes’ as often as possible cause you never know what might come of an experience. Yah feel? . #justdothething #nomsayin? #wednesdayvibes #lionheartedstrong

  • If I could go back and tell myself anything at the beginning of my fitness journey it would be these things: 1.) you don’t need to track macros everyday to be successful 2.) in fact, you don’t need to do any one thing to be successful except to find what makes YOU happy, healthy, and consistent- do that. 3.) nobody else’s journey matters when it comes to planning your own. person x eats this amount- who cares. you need a different amount of food to reach your goals. person y tracks macros and eats vegan except for one free day a week. person z does CrossFit, yoga, AND powerlifter!!! who cares, that might not work for you! DO YOU BOO 4.) your journey is gonna change as time goes on! that’s OK. as long as you keep going, keep doing something that makes you happy and healthy. keep being consistent. . .

  • Do I still workout, do I still powerlift, do I still coach? . Yes yes and yes. Daily. . What I don’t do is talk about it much on here anymore, and that is because: . • Instead of sharing my gym time with IG, I share it with my lovely bf @shaneomara_dpt 🖤 I trained alone most of the time for 4 years. And now I have a workout buddy everyday! How cool is that 🤗 gym time is our time together. We teach each other a lot. Someday we plan to share our wealth of knowledge with you guys- but for now it’s our time. . • My priorities have shifted. I don’t care to put energy into creating content for instagram right now. That would take away from another area of my life, and I’m all booked up 💁🏼‍♀️ I’m happy with my balance of priorities. . • I’m much more interested in photography, videography, and modeling than I am in fitness. So I’ve been following more accounts that have similar lifestyles as me :) . • The fitness community annoys me (obviously not everyone 🙄) I’ll just leave it at that for now lol ☕️ 🐸 . • I’m chasing big things. I don’t have the time for this app that I used to. *hence followers dropping like flies* *hence engagement at an all time low* lol but that’s okay. Life changes friends. Embrace it. . . #lionheartedstrong #prioritiesinorder #doyathing #wheremyogsat

  • Okay, people. I’ve never posted anything like this and I usually keep this part of my life to myself... but I am feeling HYPED right now. So if you feel offended by my butt, you can unfollow me or just keep your thoughts to yourself. First photograph was September 10, 2017. The second was today, September 10, 2018. Weight in both pictures is within 5 pounds of each other. I am an average woman. I eat cookie dough on weekdays and Angry Orchards on Saturday’s. Some weeks I only make it to the gym one day. Most weeks I’m there 4-5 days. But over this last year, a lot has changed. I gained a lot of knowledge. I got a coach that programs my workouts and helps me perfect my form (S/O to @kodi_humphrey). I changed my relationship with food. I track my macros- some weeks I am really strict, others it’s more of a guess. I strive to get protein in every meal and limit unnecessary sugars/calories. I have learned to love my body as it is, but I strive to always be a better version of myself. It’s HARD making time for the gym. But if you make it a priority, before Netflix or before your social life- you will see progress. It’s crazy too, because a year ago is when I stopped doing insane amounts of cardio. I run a mile before I lift, sometimes I just walk at an incline for 15-20 minutes. Now I focus my workouts around compound lifts. And I understand the concept of moderation. That’s not to say I don’t occasionally eat a whole pizza or 8 cookies.. but 75% of my diet is enjoying foods that fuel my body. It’s not a secret formula, it’s not countless hours on a treadmill, and it’s not some stupid detox concoction. I’ve got a long way to go before I’m content, if that’ll ever happen. But it’s important to recognize the progress along the way. I am better than I was yesterday and that is an accomplishment for me. #lionheartedstrong #progress

  • Finally decided on a powerlifting meet to compete in this year 😅 if you watched my story last night you already know, but I procrastinated a wee bit too long on registering for a meet and limited myself so much that I’m traveling to Ohio to compete 🙄 (please comment and tag @katieanne100 and @fitmomforever77 and tell them to clear their schedules on December 9th) . I’m EXCITED! . I’m taking @shaneomara_dpt with me AND he’s letting me coach him for the next 13 weeks 😛 But I also agreed to letting him program my auxiliary training and coach me on those exercises so... this gon be fun. He’s working on unilateral and core strengthening exercises with me, which I desperately need to work on my imbalances and weak core. And I’m helping him with his squat, bench, and deadlift form and teaching him how to not train to failure everyday. Yes he’s one of those people. . Who has a meet planned? Where and when? 😝 . . #powerlifterandphysicaltherapistunite #LionheartedStrong #usapowerlifting #usaplohio

  • I think we should all be doing more things that scare us. . Ever do something out of what’s ordinary for you and find what a great experience it was? (And here you are 5 years later still talking about it) . Why on earth don’t we do MORE of that? . This summer I did a lot of things I could have soooo easily been like “nah I don’t have time” “too scary” “too this/that” . This photoshoot with @rk_photto for one. A bit out of my comfort zone AND it was so last minute I had to rearrange my plans, but I made it happen because I vowed to step out of my box more this summer. . I also: - started a blog (info coming soon) - started working on a new business - took on three different and new part time jobs this summer - put in an application at a modeling agency - learned a LOT in my spare time (I even bought a book... who am I) instead of watching so much Netflix *although I did watch The Ranch and it was great so if you watched it let’s talk okok* - ate really good food every day (oh wait that’s not something out of my comfort zone 😝) . I find that sometimes we sit around waiting for doors to open (mistake #1) . And then when opportunities arise... . We are too [insert excuse from above] . Make it happen- do those things that scare you! . #liveontheedge #lionheartedstrong #livealittle #fridayfeels #weekendvibes #dothingsthatscareyou #okayimdone

  • Sounds silly- but I get through a lot of things by simply reminding myself that there’s thousands of people doing and going through the exact. same. thing. as me. . “Thousands of people have done this so why can’t I?” . I thought this very thought the first time I got on a roller coaster. I was scared shitless. It’s laughable now, of course. But you get the point. . I was nervous to go off to college and move out on my own into a tiny dorm room with a girl I had never bet before. But I thought- thousands of people are doing this- so I knew I would be fine. . I also remind myself of this when life gets really hard. When I feel like making it to the end of the week is going to be a miracle. . You got this. It’s been done. You can do hard things. Keep your faith. . And if you need somebody to talk to- I’m here for you! . Have a blessed Sunday everyone 🔅 . #sundayvibes #tooblessedtobestressed #lionheartedstrong

  • There’s a lot of teenage girls and young 20 somethings that follow this page. If that’s you- maybe you’re starting college or in college. Maybe you’re confused about what path to take with your life. I know I was- and still feel that way sometimes. . I want to offer some wisdom- informal and from a place of experience- rather than advice (as @krissymaecagney put it so well) because I’m still a young twenty something in college and trying to figure out my purpose 🤷🏼‍♀️ But I think I can offer you a bit of what I’ve learned in the last four years of school. . 🔅 Classes are only going to get harder (obvi, i know). Harder classes are harder A’s. 4.0 as many classes as you possibly can early on. Come out of the gate strong so you’re not playing catch up later on. . Well Kodi if I don’t know what program I’m gonna apply to how do I know if I’m gonna need those A’s anyways?👇🏽 🔅Answer: nobody ever regretted putting in the extra effort to get the better grade. Rather be safe than sorry! Short story time: i once was finishing up a theater class. yes theater. With a 3.5. Good grade but all I needed to do was attend a few hours of stage production for enough extra credit to get the A. It was a little thing that made a big difference. 🔅 People who go the extra mile are the people who get into competitive programs. Don’t want to get into a competitive program? People who go the extra mile in college also go the extra mile in their careers. Keep going. Whatever you do- it will pay off 🔅 Be proactive. Proactive isn’t “what can I do to help?” It’s “here’s what I’ve done to help.” 🔅 Be a team player. Read that again. 🔅 Be prepared with the knowledge that there’s things that you just. can’t. prepare. for. You’re going to learn how to make it happen regardless. 🔅 Ask for help. You should have several mentors. People doing what you want to do. People who have done it. Talk to them often. . . I could probably add 20 more things to this list but I’ll leave it at this for now. Did anybody find this helpful in any way? I want to be a helpful resource to those who need to hear this so leave a comment with something you would add or something I can talk about next 👇🏽

It’s important you know what your dream is because otherwise you’re wandering aimlessly. You don’t need EVERY detail. . But write it down. . Include everything. What’s your job? Where are you? Who are you with? What are you doing? What are you willing to compromise and what are you not? Maybe all the details aren’t important. Maybe a couple are uncompromisable. . Things are probably going to change- our dreams tend to do that as we grow, change, have new experiences .. .

  • I thrive on creativity. • It took me a long time to understand this about myself. • It’s no wonder I love coaching so much- it allows me to be creative. Every individual is unique, after all, and needs something different to be successful. • I love designing things- websites, scrapbooks, furniture, you name it. • I love creative writing- speeches (anybody wanna watch my maid of honor speech from @kenzie_murr and @larsmurray24 wedding? I’ll email you the link lol), writing IG captions 🤷🏼‍♀️ and writing cute love notes on the fridge for @shaneomara_dpt 😘 • It’s no wonder I love baking and (sometimes) cooking. There’s so much room for creativity. • I’m obsessed with photography and videography even though I don’t do much creating in this department. It’s fascinating. • I’m also fascinated by artists and dancers. If I was coordinated even slightly I would be a dancer for sure 🤷🏼‍♀️💃🏼 • Anybody else? . . #lionheartedstrong #creativityforlife #weekendvibes #saturdayz

  • My life changed when I decided to just make SH*T happen . I sometimes wonder how my life would be different if I hadn't spent so much time making excuses . "I don't have enough time" "I don't have enough money" "I don't have rich parents" (like I thought every successful fit person must have because who can fully commit to this lifestyle while also going to school and working a job?) "I'm too stressed" "I'm not 'outgoing' enough" "I'm waiting for a door to open” . While many of these are perfectly fine reasons to not get other things done- a lot of times they are just hindering your potential. Make time, save your money, work hard, organize your schedule, practice socializing/being outgoing/making friends, build a door or make opportunities for yourself. Amazing things happen when we quit making excuses ⭐️ . . #lionheartedstrong #faithoverfear #makeithappen #happyandhealthy #lifestylechange #fridayinspiration

  • Raise your hand if vacation has ever felt stressful to you because you wanted to stay healthy but didn’t wanna have to stress about it? 🙌🏽 . . It’s easy to look at what makes other people happy/ healthy and expect that that will work for us. . “So and so woke up every morning on vacation and ran a mile. Do I have to do that??” . Or “my friend eliminated alcoholic beverages on her trip and didn’t gain weight. Do I have to do that??” . What works best for everyone else is not necessarily what’s going to make you happy (who wants to have a lame or stressful vacation? not me) or healthy (stress is not healthy people, neither is obsessing over food/ calories, and neither is overeating because you don’t have a plan). . But it’s difficult to not be so influenced by everyone else’s version of health and happiness. . Here’s my real life example maybe some of you can relate to or appreciate👇🏽 . I went on an all inclusive trip to Cabo in March (that’s where this pic was taken). I had never done all inclusive before and was STOKED to eat lots of good food and to be able to try all different kinds of drinks 🍹🍸🍷 . I had many people asking me during that trip what low cal drinks I was having. I explained that I wasn’t 🤷🏼‍♀️ I was drinking whatever kinds of drinks I wanted. . I made the choice to have whatever drinks I wanted, but keep my meals on the “healthier” side. And this didn’t take away from my trip whatsoever. In fact, I felt really, really good about this decision. . For ME, this was what made me HAPPY and HEALTHY on this trip 😊 . As we know- maybe this wouldn’t have been the best route for you to take. You need to come up with your own game plan. Figure out what makes you happiest and healthiest in situations like these and rock it out 😎💃🏼 . .

  • I started crying in my car this morning (I’m emotional ok) because I felt this overwhelming urge to share this with you guys- that maybe somebody really needs to hear this right now. ^ In my experience- you can’t change people. All you can do is provide them with tools and knowledge and lead by example. The rest is up to them. They have to want to make a change. You. can’t. do. it. for. them. ^ It really doesn’t matter if he/ she falls in love with you. It really doesn’t matter how long you’ve been friends. Or how long you have been dating. *insert scenario* ^ I also wanted to tell you that people are going to hurt your feelings. Some people are probably going to stab you in the back at some point in your life. This is not a reflection of you. This is a reflection of them. It may be poor character, jealousy, insecurity, who knows. who cares. ^ What’s important is that you don’t get hung up on it for too long. Don’t let anybody else’s issues drag you down, hold you back, or keep you from living your life. Don’t wait around for people to change for you. You gotta keep on movin’ boo. Don’t waste your time. Don’t waste your energy. These things are too precious and should be preserved for the right people 🖤 . . #lionheartedstrong #sundaythoughts #july2018

  • Do you realize that you might be just a few small, sustainable steps away from getting on track to your weight loss goals? ^ Here’s some ideas to consider 👇🏽 ^ 1.) Switch to diet pop and calorie free drinks. There’s a million and a half great options. Stop drinking your calories. ^ 2.) Prioritize protein. Buffet? Potluck? No problem. Enjoy a little bit of each thing you want, but start out with some protein. It will fill you up a bit and you will make sure to get some #gains in there ^ 3.) You don’t have to give up cheddar biscuits when you go out to dinner (yanno, the red lobster ones?) you just have to give up eating 6 cheddar biscuits 🤷🏼‍♀️ #guilty ^ 4.) Drink your water. ^ 5.) Switch to fat free/ low fat options. Example: I eat a bag of popcorn everyday. At least one bag. Low fat popcorn still tastes great (and I add tons of cheesy popcorn salts duh- cause there’s no calories in that) and has 100-200 less calories per bag That’s 700-1400 calories a week. THATS POTENTIALLY 1/4 POUND RIGHT THERE. Example B: low/ fat free coffee creamer. Still tastes great. Saves me tons of calories (who else drinks 29 cups of coffee a day? 🙋🏼‍♀️) ^ Can you think of other ways you can easily save yourself some calories? ^ Small steps. Little changes. Big differences over time. . . #lionheartedstrong #dietchange #lifestylechange #smallchanges #kodihumphreyfitness

  • “Why do you like powerlifting so much?” ^ I love when people ask me this question because it gives me the opportunity to advocate for such a great sport 🤩 ^ Where to begin? ... ^ Powerlifting gives me a chance to work toward something (getting stronger) while simultaneously growing muscle, staying active, and staying healthy. The gym time is also my ME time. Win win win win. win. ^ Like many of you, I played sports in high school.🏀 🏃🏼‍♀️ I knew when I got to college I had to do something 🤷🏼‍♀️ ^ So why not just train for fun? ^ That’s not a good enough “why” for me (refer to my last post) 🤷🏼‍♀️ ^ I’m goal-oriented to the core. My “why” has to be very important to me or I won’t waste my time (just being honest). I conserve my time and energy for the important things. ^ Other things I love about powerlifting. It’s an individual sport. I go at my pace and do it my own way. I go to the gym when it’s convenient for me. The powerlifting community is incredible- everyone cheers for each other at meets; it’s such a fun environment. ^ If you’re a powerlifter- what do you love about the sport?
