Do you have moments where you doubt your potential? I'm here to tell you to S-T-O-P ❌✋🏼We as women especially tend to downplay our abilities and think that we don't have the skills we need to succeed. But these are lies we tell ourselves. We truly DO have the power to go after what we want, as long as we're prepared to make a plan and put in the work 📌 ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Lipstick & Ink is all about empowering you to realize your potential. One of the ways to do this is to get out of your own way. Stop asking yourself "what if?" and instead ask yourself, "why not?" 🤷🏼♀️⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ For me personally, ever since I was a little girl, I've wondered, "what if I wrote and published a book?" I wrote a fiction book in college more as therapy for myself, without really any intention of publishing it. I chose not to even attempt to publish it because 1️⃣) I was afraid to share my experiences that was weaved into the fiction 2️⃣) I was afraid of what people would think 3️⃣) I was afraid my writing wasn't good enough. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ This time around, I'm planning to write - and publish - a non-fiction book based on experiences of my life, but that can help other women similar to me realize and pursue their path to success. I figure, I have nothing to lose - & why not give it a shot? If I can help even one woman with my writing, that means something to me. I know I have a long road ahead of me to write this book and then go through the trials of potentially getting professionally published or deciding to go the self-publishing route. Whatever happens, I know I won't stop until that book is published and I am able to get it into hands like yours.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ What is one "what if?" that's been nagging you? How do you plan to turn that into your "why not?"

Last time touching anything relatively heavy before contest, a few easy singles at 70% and some SSB high box squats. Deads feel good, stones feel good, sandbag feels good, yoke will be meh and OH will be problematic, surprise. The work is done. Cut 10 pounds or so in the last week, realistically only looking at having to do 5-7 in water, although that’s still never super fun. #herewego#strongman

A snippet of my woman’s figure/physique quarter turns. Been a while since I had to hit these poses. This is just one of the many ways of turning. This is the great thing about posing. There’s so many different ways of hitting the poses and transitions all within the rules. If you need help with posing for your show then hit me up and let’s have a chat. This can make or break your placing.
With my energy juice I will destroy day one! 💪 Here we go! W1D1 and I have a small army of people who are ready to commit to making a change. Can not wait to see everyone love this program as much as I do. ♥️ #HereWeGo#Coach#LiftIt#FITArmy

Here’s our Challenge that I randomly pulled out of my ass to which Kat and Jared said “Bring it on”. Jared and I will be doing Push Ups for this challenge, Kat will be doing squats. Monday - Friday: 300 a day Saturday: 500 a day Sunday: Rest We will be doing this on top of our normal workout routines of gym and running. Should be interesting. We’re gonna see how long we can keep it going. I challenged a couple of my runners to do this and I think they made it 2 or 3 days...... Ameteurs 🤦♂️ Let’s see how tough we really are. #workout#pushupchallenge#squatchallenge#300workout#herewego#bringiton#exerciseroutine#workoutroutine#threeamigos#tripod
