Self Compassion and You: Follow those who INspire you, not those you ASpire to be like.
When you follow or surround yourself with people who truly inspire you to be better, you’re taking positive steps. This might be someone who teaches proper form or who gives you great advice on healthy meal prepping. But if you only look up to people you aspire to be (egs. Instagram influencers hawking teas or celebrities with bodies by personal trainers, 3 or 4 hours of working out a day, and personal chefs/nutritionists), you will fall short 95% of the time and feel terrible about yourself.
Every now and then, ask yourself who you might be idolizing. Maybe do a social media cleanse. Do you follow people who post pictures of their body with little to no other content? Does the content just make you feel bad? Why torture yourself?! The power is yours. (Sidenote: did you know you can just “mute” people, you don’t have to unfollow! Muting people would be my suggestion for close friends and/or family …).
If sosh meeds (i.e. social media) isnt you’re thing, did you hear about the 48-year old woman who qualified for the Olympic Trials?!

“Elmyr de Hory”
25 Minutes E5MOM (5 rounds)
10 Power Cleans
15 Box Jumps
200 yd Run
L4 – 155/115
L3 – 135/95
L2 – 95/65
You have FIVE minutes to complete each round; your goal should be to have TWO minutes rest between rounds. If you are getting caught by the clock, just do 5 Cleans instead of 10, but keep the other reps the same. Take your time to reset your back between reps on the Cleans. Try to make them look like athletic cleans, like you actually understand the movement. If you’re rushing to get through it you will look like a disaster. You make up your time on the other movements–you should try to get the burpees done in under 30 seconds every round, and keep the run under a minute.
200 yd Run
10 Dead Cleans (single kettlebell, 2 hands)
15 Box Jumps (20 yd broad Jumps)
10 Burpees (or Plank Burpees)
