As we say goodbye to the holiday dedicated to love, it's time to remember that the truest way to love is to love yourself.
I've forgotten, over the last couple months, that it is important to love your body, who you are and where you are going. I haven't been doing a very good job lately of loving myself. I've been gorging on junk food, indulging in things that don't serve me or what truly brings joy to my heart.
It's so easy to fall into those traps, especially when you feel like your life isn't flowing the way you want it to. Thank you to my beautiful, wonderful, supportive friends that helped me realize what I was doing.
So in honor of Valentine's Day (and the post-Valentines sales!), I decided to treat myself to some lovely roses and champagne (to drink in moderation). I want to toast my beautiful body, love it and be thankful for my health and ability.
It's time to find a little self love in my heart.
Thanks to my MIL for watching the kids tonight so my wife and I can celebrate Valentine’s Day 2020 two days later. First stop: @shuckoysterbar (as their freshness is on point especially for a Sunday). Second stop: gunwhales brewery where I tried their Orangewood (see next post). Last stop was @saltybearbeer where we enjoy the “What the horchata” brew. (See next post). #valentinesday#postvalentines#datenight#oysters#nomnom
Something I feel like gets it's own post (JK I forgot to include this in my last post) ...is the fact that yesterday my two year "anniversary?" Of working out. ✅
February 15, 2018: Walked into the gym for the very first time with absolutely no idea what to do. Actually ended up getting nervous after seeing everything (I went to a pretty big gym) and I thought "Maybe I was wrong, maybe I wasn't meant for the gym." But alas, I kept going because I bought a freakin "One-Year Membership". Best irrational decision of my life
February 15, 2019: Competed (and placed 1st) in the first powerlifting meet. Much more "gym-educated", stronger, heavier, happier... it's insane. ✅
I owe @sovereignroots a very big thank you because he convinced me to get into powerlifting. It took him days of heart wrenching hours to convince me but he ever so valiantly pursued his thought of me powerlifting. (JK it took him two tries)
But thanks to him I started powerlifting on my last gym day in April. In total I've been powerlifting for about 7-8 months (Nov and Dec were hypertrophy months) .

Realtalk//: “where were you in the morning” - Shawn Mendes #snippet
I took a minute to indulge in myself creatively 🥰. Have fun with what you can bring to the world and allow yourself to rejoice in your gifts.
Honestly, I hope no one had to really experience what Shawn Mendes was writing in this song 😂 on #valentinesday .
As always, let’s all #win !

🌹 🌻 I don’t need a valentine to tell you how much I love you or how much you mean to me because you means the world to me. If V-day mean saying I love you ‘you had be broke’ cuz I said that every time😂. TIME and DISTANCE does not define us. As long as we have each other, nothing can come between us❤️❤️ @bigsean_bigmac#postvalentines#babes#fashionista#novababe#nova#ripjeans
