Be your biggest motivator because self-mastery begins with your thoughts. If you don’t control what you think, you can’t control what you do.

What challenge are you trying to overcome this week? I feel like I have been running toward challenges lately and it’s help me grow. It’s funny how much of a hold our minds have over us.
.
We need to flip the tables and take control of our minds. Once we are better able to do that the rest becomes easier to tackle.

In the spirit of Thankfulness, I just want to acknowledge how totally grateful I am for my church, @liquidchurch I am thankful for their unwavering commitment to serving the immediate community and beyond. I am grateful for their open arms policy no matter what walk of life you come from. But I’m mostly grateful for their amazing #LiquidKids and #LiquidFamily programs which also include a safe and supportive environment for families with special needs. What about you? Do you have a church community that you’re super proud of?

How do you get motivated to work out?  Sometimes when I feel a bit low on energy I pick out a great outfit before I head out to teach my class.  I feel energized as I put together what I feel is my perfect #ootd I got some great compliments today because of my brand new leggings from @abs2bfitnessapparel
.
I had seen those scrunchy booty leggings but I didn’t think they’d look good on me.  Well, I felt like the sexiest beast today!  So when you feel like you don’t want to go to the gym just pick out a great outfit and rock it while you sweat!

Will you plank today? Try a 30 day planking challenge.
.
Holding a plank position requires strength, stability and endurance in your core muscles. If you perform this simple yet effective exercise daily, you may experience changes to your abs, back and glutes that you didn't expect.
.
Activating and strengthening your core muscles gives you an added advantage as you age.
.
= Try this #plankchallenge =
Swipe to see variations. If you’re a beginner start on your knees.
.
One the first day plank for 20 seconds. Increase by 10 seconds daily. Play some great music and get it done. Your body and the mirror will thank you!  Will you do it?

Shrimp and Avocado Stuffed Sweet Potatoes 😍 Makes meals 10x easier when you combine leftovers into things because it cuts out some cooking time 🙌🏻 I made these before making some @foodstirs snickerdoodle blondies 😍 It’s just been a day full of happy stomachs over here haha 😂 Sunday’s are the perfect day for getting some baking done though (even if it’s just from a box 😅) No shame in taking a short cut 😜 Took a short cut again by using shrimp leftover from a few meals ago. I microwaved the sweet potatoes for a bit (I’ll post exact instructions at the bottom), then scooped out the middle, added in my toppings, and baked for 15 mins. Ready in 20ish mins but felt oh so fancy 😎 I forgot to post my Trader Joe’s haul on IGTV last week so I’m doing that tonight + filmed a cast iron cleaning video (even though I don’t really do anything too special 😬) that will go up tomorrow or Tuesday! Lmk if there are any other tutorials or how tos you’d like to see! Hope you had a wonderful weekend and a wonderful Sunday ❤️ ———————————————————————————
#lunch details 👉🏻 3 sweet potatoes, washed and poked holes in them with a fork. Microwaved for 5 mins, then cut in half and scoop out middle, add in toppings (I used leftover cooked shrimp + sautéed spinach + onions) and add sweet potato back in. Baked at 400F for 15 mins. Topped with avocado, cilantro, and @traderjoes African smoke seasoning 💕
There is a time and a place for everything. Summers were about indulging and basking under the sun. Once the weather begins to turn we have a tendency to turn as well but we turn to comfort foods. Want to know some tips to help you stay in control during the holidays?  Here’s a few:
.
Plan ahead: make time for your workouts. I know that once it begins to get chilly it’s harder to leave that yummy bed. Make a gym date with a friend. Circle some classes on the group fitness schedule. Lay out your workout clothes the night before. Pack your bag so you’re ready to go.
.
Meal prep: Staying consistent with a healthy diet is going to save you time, money and inches!  Grab my meal prepping guide for some free ideas. Tap the link in my bio @marymasseyfit Fill up your water bottle and make your post-workout shake the night before.
.
If you’re going to gatherings bring a side that guy know is a healthy alternative. Eat something healthy an hour before you leave your house. Drink lots of water and take it easy on the alcohol.
.
Wear form-fitting clothing! We tend to wear leggings and bigger tops and sweaters because they are cozy. Keep wearing the form fitting stuff so that you’re aware of how everything fits and you know when to cut back.
.

I’m seeing some new faces around here lately (welcome) and some loyal friends, too (thanks). For any of you who’d like to know me better, here goes my *All About Me—Autumn Edition*: Although Fall is easily not my favorite season, it’s beautiful and it’s cozy and I get to enjoy apple cider and more soup!  I wanted to share this quote because I always felt happiest in the summer.
. ..
Once the weather turned I got the seasonal blues and I allowed myself to stay in that space and blame the weather. But I realized through mental exercises that my happiness is not dependent on the weather. Despite dropping temperatures and cloudy skies I can always look forward to Fall because every single day, no matter how warm or cold, is a new day to make a positive impact, help my clients see things in a better way and make great memories. And there you have it!
. . .
Now what about fall makes you, YOU?
I polled my followers and as it turns out, most need beginner exercises. Here are some core strengthening exercises that you can do. Scroll sideways to see all the videos. Each one will help you progress to the next level.

This is how you get stronger. Every little bit counts! Share this, save this for later use and please let me know if you have any questions. Drop me a comment and let me know you’re watching ❤️

Happy November!  That happened FAST! Got tips for surviving holiday prep? While it seems that the holidays come earlier every year, I like to keep a few tricks in my back pocket to prepare for the seasonal rush. I always do my best to have a plan for my personal growth and for my businesses. I have noticed patterns over the last few years and I’m always working on improving how I connect with and serve those who need me.
.
Holiday promotions are when I connect with the most brand new clients, and having a top marketing game is crucial. I would legit never survive without it!  Lastly, but it should really be firstly- self care is extremely important. The holidays are known to drive some people bonkers. How you spend your time and who you spend your time with can either be beneficial or detrimental. So I always make time for exercise and I surround myself with awesome people I can learn from or I can laugh with.
.
What about you? I’m welcoming advice from business owners and NONtrerpreneurs alike!
This post is dedicated to the people who make me want to get out of bed no matter how I feel or no matter what hurts. I have been with them in sickness and in health. Torn muscle. Fever. Migraine. Stomach flu, hangover and everything in between.
. . .
I don’t take a day off unless I absolutely have to. They are my life and I am immensely thankful for them. They schedule vacations and surgeries around my classes. 9.5 years and still going strong. This is my Zumba family. And they rock my world!!!
